Chapter 1: Abused Arrival

Hi! My name is Paris and I live on a horse rescue. I've had a love for horses since the day I was born, and lucky me, I was taken home to a farm full of those beloved creatures. But, that's just about me, and since this story will get boring if it's just about me, let me tell you what happened today.

I woke up to a sound of a car rolling up our gravel driveway. I hopped out of bed and looked through my window, to see a truck and a trailer, with a few people coming to help take the horse or whatever was in the trailer out. I rushed to brush my teeth and slipped into a T-shirt and some shorts.

I ran outside and saw my mom trying to get the horse out of the trailer.

"What's the matter?" I asked.

"We've got a serious case of abuse with this horse!" My mom said while struggling to lead the unknown horse out.

"Here let me help!" I said and took the lead rope from her hands.

The horse slowly slumped down the trailer and right behind me. My mom looked at me in awe. The horse was a stallion, a dark chestnut stallion, with scars on his back, bruises on his legs and face. And bloody gashes everywhere. I stared at him in horror. What had the previous owners driven him to?!

"Does he have a name?" I questioned.

"No. I don't think so." My mom replied, "you can take the honor of naming him though."

I nodded and said, "how about we name him, um..., uh... Warrior." I tried to touch the stallion's forehead, but he turned away.

I sighed, and gently pulled on the rope and said "Let's take you to your new home."

The hooves clip closed lightly, as he didn't have much weight on him. I really wish I could slap and burn those people who treated Warrior this way. I walked up to his new stall and I could see a slight hint of fear in his eyes.

"It's okay boy." I softly said to him. "It's alright."

He perked his ears up and as if he could understand me, he walked into the stall, and let me touch his forehead and sniff my hand.

"I'll see you later Warrior!" I said and I left the stable and back into my room to start his research.

Chapter 2 coming soon!

I like the plot of this story. I love the feeling that Warrior has history. I like that your main character takes the stallion in.
