Candy, a True Friend - Part 3
"Woah girl!" I exclaimed as I opened Candy's stable door and she bolted into the paddock. It was the day after the vet had visited and I needed to muck out Candy's stable. My mum still wasn't used to me getting up so early, so she was surprised to see me working away through her bedroom window on the second store of our house.
"Whats all the hustle and bustle, Ayla?" Mum asked, bending out of her window, looking down at me.
"I am just mucking out Candy's stable." I replied, Shading my eyes from the sun with my hand.
"I'll be down in a minute." Mum said as she shut the window. I kept on mucking out Candy's stable when THUD! I fell into the hay. Candy had head-butted me into the hay!
"Candy!" I laughed, "You naughty little thing!" I got up and looked down at what used to be my beautiful blue tights and my purple t-shirt that had 'Chase your dreams' written in on it, with my matching denim vest.
'Oh well, I guess I should've known not to wear my best clothes out here." I said, brushing as much hay as i could off me.
After I had mucked out Candy's stable, I went inside to get changed. I then put her on a lead rope and we went for a walk. I know, it is strange to go on a walk with a pony, but still, it's cute. I walked Candy around the block. We went past many people, Candy trying to say Hello to all of them. We went past a house with a large front yard and a tall, blue brick wall. A man was out the front, clipping his hedges, but when Candy and I walked past, he stopped clipping and just stared at me with a very evil look. Then he looked at Candy with a grin right across his face.
"Excuse me, little girl, do you live in the house with the oak tree out the front?" The man asked me.
"Yes I do. Why do you want to know?" I asked him.
"Well...Um...I just like to know where my neighbors live. Now shoo." The man waved his hands.
That night, After I put Candy in her stables, I had dinner, watched a bit of TV and then I went to bed.
"Goodnight Sweetie." Mum said as she kissed me on the cheek. I walked up the staircase and into my room. I fell asleep almost straight away. I had a dreams about Candy.
Neigh! Yaa! Grr! Eeee! I awoke to the sounds of horses whinnying and crying. I thought it was morning so I opened my curtains. But it was black. I lookead at my clock. 1 am! I heard more whinnying and neighing and I looked out the window. A huge Thoroughbred was rearing into Candy's Stable!
"Good Boy!" I heard someone shout. I jumped out of bed and I raced into mums room.
"MUM! WAKE UP MUM!" I cried.
"What is it honey!" She asked.
"Quickly, a horse in rearing into Candy's stable!" I yelled.
Mum jumped up and we raced downstairs and out the back door. I then noticed that there was a person riding the thoroughbred. Pound! Neigh! The wall of Candy's stable collapsed.
"Stay away from my CANDY!" I yelled as I race over to my pony.
Suddenly, I saw a long rope pull around Candy's neck. The person on the thoroughbred pulled the rope. He galloped off on his horse, dragging Candy behind him by the rope, smashing down our fence on the way.
"Candy NO!" I sobbed as I ran out to the road, only to see that Candy and the man on the horse were now to far away for me to catch.
"YOU ARE A HORRIBLE MAN!" I yelled at the man on the horse, taking MY candy away. I collapsed onto the grass, bawling my eyes out, my mum just sat next to me with her arms around my shoulders.
