Finding Each Other...

by Megan
(Spring Hill, TN U.S.A)

Darby Carter wasn't a very popular girl in school. She had no friends, and people always pushed her around. But one day... It was after school. Darby got off the bus and a can of soda hit her in the back of the head by the meanest boy on the bus. Now Darby's hair was soaking wet and fizzy. Darby groaned. She ran into her house and hugged her mom so suddenly, she screamed. "EEEK!" Screamed her mother. "Mom, I had the WORST day at school!" Said Darby. "First I got my foot stepped on by the cutest boy in class and then when I got off the bus just now I got hit in the back of the head with a can of soda by the meanest boy on the bus and my hair is wet and all frizzy! See?!" Said Darby without taking a breath. She panted for breath. 'Whoa, settle down!" Said Darby's mom. "Hey, your father planned a surprise for you. You're gonna LOVE IT!" "Eh?! What is it? What is it? What is it?!" Asked Darby. "I can't tell you!" Replied her mom. Darby ran upstairs to her father and said,"What is it?!" "Okay, your mom told you I planed a surprise, huh?" Said her dad. "Yeah, she did! Tell me what it is!" Said Darby. "Okay, I know how much you like horses, and you've always wanted to cath one, right?" "Yeah!" "Well, your dream came true." Said her father. "WHAT?! You mean I get to catch a wild horse?!" "Yup." "Oh, thank you!" On the road to the wild where horses are most likely to be found in Alabama(Where they live)... "Okay, we're here!" Said Darby's father. Darby jumped out of the car and ran up a hill, and then she froze. There, right infront of her, was a whole HERD of HORSES! Darby didn't want to frighten them, so she stayed absolutley still and quiet. Her dad tip-toed behind her. "They probably know they're here, but they also think that we DON'T know that THEY'RE here." Whispered her dad. He laid flat on the ground with Darby so the horses wouldn't see them. He handed her a rope. "What's this?" Asked Darby, but whispering. "A lasso, a rope to catch horses with." Whispered her dad. He pointed to a beautiful mustang, an American Mustang, Palomino colored to be exact. "See that horse? Try to catch that one. It's close enough." Darby tip-toed up to the horse.

you spelled catch wrong the first time
by: Anonymous

You spelled catch wrong the first time just in case you want to change it somebody. Anyways the very ending part of the the story makes the writer sound like he or she pretty much doesn't know anything about horses. No offense or anything.
