My unique Stardust - Part 1

by Maria
(Texas)

The first time I saw her was in a animal rescue centre. She was standing in a small enclosure. Her ocat was caked with mud. She nuzzled me when I held out my hand. I knew straight away that she was the one I wanted! "I want her dad" I said, smiling at the grey gelding.

The horse trailer wasn't big but it was suitable for the new horse. I realised I had to give her a name. Her eyes sparkled like stars. I smiled and said stardust. "Stardust?" asked dad. "Well then, welcome stardust, to our family." He patted Stardust. She flinched ever so slightly.

"A bit on the thin side" said Dad."Might want to fatten her up, a bit" He said as he loaded her out of the trailer. Mum came out into the paddock. "Maria, why don't you go and get the barn ready for the new horses arrival. I'll let her out into to the paddock for a while. I ran into the barn carefully stepping over Misty, our white cat!

It was almost dinner time by the time I finished. I grabbed a halter and an apple slowly walking into the big field. I talked to Stardust as i approached from behind. She turned her head around and snorted, trotting further away from me. Her back looked smooth and shiny. It wasn't dirty any more. Dad must have washed it! I couldn't help but wanting to ride her. I grabbed a saddle and bridle quickly and tacked up tTardust.

As I mounted I forgot about everything and let Stardust's smooth canter carry me away. Before I knew it we were in the forest behind my house. Water trickled down all the leaves and the air was cold and cool. My hair flew in the breeze as Stardust changed into a gallop. We headed straight for a low branch. As I bent down I lost my grip and slipped from the saddle. My eyes suddenly went black.

2 hours later.
I woke up, my arm was in pain. Stardust was nowhere in sight. I was late for dinner but worst of all I was lost! As i walked further into the forest the sun started to fall faster under the distant hills. I heard a loud shrill cry!!!

My unique stardust part three
by: Maria

Thank you to all the horse crazy girls who liked part 1 and 2.

I walked into the room...
Mum stood up. I saw the tears streaming down her face. She stood up and walked towards me as if she couldn't believe that I was real. "Maria" she whispered.

Soon I had a bandage around my arm and I was lying in my bed. I didn't want to rest like my parents had told me to. I told them about Stardust and they said they would search the forests later but I didn't want to wait any longer so I waited until night.

When the sky had finally gone dark and my parents were in bed I sneaked downstairs into the kitchen. I grabbed my rucksack, coat and a few carrots. I slowly unlocked the back door and slipped out into the cool night.

I followed the path to the woods. The branches snapped underneath my feet. I tried to quieten my footsteps because they could scare the horses away. I stopped underneath a tree for a snack when I saw the black stallion standing a few yards away from me. His coat shimmered int the dark and his cold eyes stared into my than like thin air he vanished...

Please comment for part 4

My Unique Stardust - Part 2
by: Maria

I am really glad you all enjoyed part 1, so here's part 2!

I stood up and walked in a different direction to the cry, I hoped I wouldn’t bump into the person or creature who had made that deafening noise.

I walked around in circles – all the trees looked the same to me – until I walked into a clearing.
I sighed with relief then looked around to try to figure out where I was.

In the distance I saw a huge herd of wild ponies. I blinked trying to find a dappled grey horse with a bridle and saddle on. I saw her standing in the middle. I tried counting how many wild horses there were but they galloped away before I could finish, Stardust with them.

The sun rose in the horizon. I carried on walking till I reached a familiar fence. I realised I was near my house so I just walked on. As my house came into view so did a police car. I stayed where I did, not want to walk further. Sweat poured down my forehead and my arm thrived with pain. I could feel blood trickling down but I didn’t want that to discourage me.

I wondered about how worried my parents would be when they found me and how much trouble I would be in with the police. When the car finally left I trudged back into the house.

The door was open so I helped myself in. I heard crying as I made my way into the kitchen.

"She’s lost," I heard someone sob.
"I’m sure she is alright," said dad.
"What if they can’t find her?" said mum.
I couldn’t wait any longer. I walked into the room...

Please comment for part 3. If you haven’t already read My Unique Stardust Part 1, please read it and tell me what you think. Be sure to comment.
