Riding in the Forest - Part 1

by Athena
(Guimaras Island, Philippines)


Ann was riding her horse, Honey, into the forest maze of trees, twigs, leaves, and branches. The autumn air smelled clean and crisp.

Dried leaves crunched under Honey's hooves as the palomino horse walked across the wonderland swirling with red and orange leaves. The forest floor was dotted with leaves, twigs, and fallen branches here and there, complete with two main characters, a girl and a horse, riding through the woods.

It had recently rained, and so the air smelled fresh and clean. Away from the horrible smoke of the city. Who could have had a better life than the two?

Ann has lived with her mom and dad in a farm. Honey has been treated like a queen ever since she was brought into Ann's farm.

The forest ride was soon ended by a heavy, unexpected downpour of rain...

Riding in the Forest - Part 2
by: Athena

Ann and Honey arrived home amidst the heavy downpour of rain. In due respect to her beloved companion, Ann made Honey as comfortable as possible- with an addition of yummy bran mash and carrots.

When finished, Ann stepped into their house. It was warm and cozy, and the smell of roasted chicken filled the air. Her mom was sitting in the soft white sofa.

"So how did it go?" she asked her daughter.
"It went fine," Ann replied, smiling. "Until the rain came and ruined it all."
Her mother chuckled. "Your brother is waiting to hear about your adventures."
Ann went upstairs into her brother Jack's room. Jack was reading Black Beauty, their favorite book.

"Hi Jack!" Ann greeted him. "You should have went with me and Honey. It was so much fun! Want to watch a movie?"
Jack looked up, an eager expression spread across his young face.
"Sure! What movie are we going to watch?" he asked.
"Black Beauty." Ann replied. She put the movie on and they enjoyed the sad, touching film.

"Tomorrow, you will come with us on the ride into the forest." Ann told her brother, as she snuggled closer to him, ignoring the screaming of the rain outside.
