Shooting Star - Part 1

by Mary
(U.S.A.)

I was soaring through the sky as my horse, Shooting Star, beat her feathery gray/white wings against the midnight darkness. I felt as if I were dreaming as I closed my eyes and-

"Amber!" yelled Mrs. Brook snapping me out of my daydream, "Its your turn!". Looking down, instead of seeing a strong bare back, I saw a fancy English saddle. I was once again in my world, a world full of reality.

Nudging my stable horse forward, I thought about my life. My father was one of the richest men in the U.S.A. , and I was of course pampered and spoiled. But that didn't matter to me, because all I wanted was my own horse, but my father told me that I needed to focus on my studies. And of course I knew he was right, so instead of actually having my own horse I rode one of my riding stables horses.

Today everyone was practicing for the upcoming show later that week. Amber usually got first place, but if not first then second. She had lots of shelves back at home full of trophies and ribbons she had won. The horse show was actually the week after her birthday. So she was excited!

After the lesson she went home and up to her room. After dong her homework she pulled out her computer and looked at Andalusian horses for sale. She loved Andalusian because the were so majestic, strong, and beautiful. She had her sights set on one in particular though. He was a gelding, and he was beautiful! His name was nothing other than Shooting Star! He was gray, with beautiful blue eyes, and a flowing mane and tail.

Amber's birthday was coming up soon, and Amber was hoping that her dad would get her Star, but he wouldn't budge about what he was getting her.

The next day at school she went through her classes with even more boys than usual staring at her. Amber was completely oblivious but she happened to have an uncommon beauty. She was fairly tall and willowy. She had incredibly wavy black hair that always swept across her face, and very uncommon violet eyes.

She got most of her looks from her mother but her personality from her father. She was headstrong, stubborn, kind but firm, and you can probably guess the rest.

The days flew by and finally Amber's 17th birthday came! She was woken by her parents who were wearing very pleased expressions, "Come with us Amber" her father said, "We want to show you something."
