Diablo - Part 1
(Mesa, AZ, USA)
He lunged at her, bearing his sharp ugly teeth. Quickly, with one swift movement, she drew her hand away,and stumbled backwards, unable to cry for help. She looked up at the angry beast who pawed the air with his hard hooves. A shrill cry filled the air, as he trampled over her, leaving her there, filled with pain.
One cry followed the other, until her voice went hoarse. She had traveled too far away from civilization, so nobody could hear her pitiful cries of help. He darted towards the herd, separating the peaceful family. They raced away from each other, trying to escape his viscous energy.
He was a cast off from the herd.. An angry soul.. He threatened to take the life of anything that crossed his path.. In this case, it was young Taylor Sophia who had refused to heed her mother's warnings about the rabid horse called Diablo.
She watched in dread as he bucked and grunted. With trembling hands, she picked herself up, and wiped the blood from a scratch on her soft face. She took a few shaky steps towards the road, praying that Diablo would not notice.
Unfortunately, he did. He immediately galloped towards her, thrashing his neck in a beastly manner. His long black mane flowing behind him. She glanced back at the roaring brute, and immediately, without a second thought,pushed all her energy down to her feet and ran. The blood pounded in her ears, as her breath escaped her lungs. There was no way she could outrun the beast, but she knew she had to try.
Suddenly, she crashed into the barbed wire fence. The spikes tore her shirt and her flesh. She flipped over it, and landed hard on her back, gasping for breath. Diablo reared up, but luckily the four foot fence was too tall for him to jump, but he continued to try. He whacked the fence, and bit it. Taylor rolled over, and crawled to the side of the road, hoping somebody would see her.
Pain spiraled all throughout her body,and her head throbbed. She could still hear Diablo trying to tear down the fence. A car drove by, and she flinched at how close it was. She heard it squeal to a stop,and a door slam shut.
"Are you okay?" A woman's voice asked. Taylor could do nothing but groan 'no'. The woman gasped and ran to her side.
"I'm calling the police." She said punching some buttons into her phone. Taylor opened one eye, and watched as the woman watched Diablo. She mumbled something under her breath. Taylor gave in to sleep and all went black.
