Cassy - Part 1
Intro: Eyes watched the helpless girl as she fell off her horse. "Cassy!!!!" screamed the girl as she tumbled off, making a perfect target for the hungry wolf. He licked his chops waiting for the right moment.
When 13-year-old Melanie Roberts woke up that early spring morning, she had no idea that her life would be changed forever that afternoon. As she looked out the window to the rolling hills of her families farm in Vermont. Grinning, she watched her mare, Cassy, frolic with the other horses her family kept.
As she laid back in bed she remembered, three years ago, when her dad brought home a little Morgan filly. She still remembered his words. "This is a foal that can grow up with you." In the three years that followed, Cassy had grown up and Melanie and Lucy (her best friend, next to Cassy) rode together on long rides. Lucy had her own horse too called Sun Dancer.
What was that? Her mom was calling her to breakfast.
As she bounded down the stairs, she thought of the things she had planned for her and Cassy to do today.
"Morning, Melanie," her mom greeted her. "Breakfast will be ready in a minute. I know you have a lot of things planned today."
"Sure mom, Lucy and Sun Dancer and Cassy and I are going to go on a picnic lunch this afternoon."
"Sounds like fun," remarked her dad coming into the kitchen just then.
"Mom, could we have some of your bread to make sandwiches? Lucy and I have everything else we need."
"Sure," answered her mom, smiling.
"I just want to warn you about one thing, cautioned her dad, don't go near the old bridle path."
"But why dad????" "That's where we always go!"
"Because several rabid wolves have been seen around the area."
"Okay, dad, Lucy and I will make other plans."
