The Mystery Horse
by Bianca Arctic
(The Midnight Zone)
Once upon a time, there were two horse-crazy girls named Andrea and Ellen. Andrea had a horse named Carmel, but Ellen did not. They were both shy and not very talkative.
Andrea had long, half blonde, half brown hair, glasses, and she had a sweet personality. Ellen, on the other hand, had long brown hair, and glasses. She, however, was the opposite. Ellen had a temper, was clumsy, and had a daredevil personality. They were both short and were tomboys.
One day, Ellen was reading her favorite horse book, Misty of Chincoteague, when a rock bounced off her window. (This was their way of signaling.) She tumbled down the stairs and out the back door.
"Ellen! I just got a letter from my uncle! He owns a ranch and he wants us to come and visit for a couple of weeks!" Yelled Andrea. "Yeow!" cried Ellen. "When can we go? How many horses does he have? Where does he live? I hope we can go!"
