I jumped out of bed on a sunny July day and got changed into a polo t-shirt and jeans. I looked over my walls of horse posters and my desk covered with model horses. I love horses.

I ran downstairs to see my mother sitting at the kitchen table eating a muffin. "Morning June," she smiled. "Morning mum," I answered smiling. "Can I go to Malinda's house?" I asked and she nodded. "Sure, Ive got to go to work though honey," she answered and added, "be careful sweetie, goodbye!" She grabbed her work bag and opened the door to walk down the driveway and get into the car.

I waited until she pulled out of the driveway then I grabbed a muffin from the kitchen table and ran outside. I walked to my best friend Malinda's house. On the way, I ate the muffin in huge bites. I was hungry! Malinda was moving and needed someone to buy her mare Juniper's foal Pepper, who I was in love with.

When I got to their farm I saw Malinda leading Pepper. Pepper's pinto coat gleamed in the early sunshine. "Hi June!" She called as I walked over. "Hi Malinda!" I answered back. I hugged pepper and she nickered. "You're a good girl aren't you Pepper?" We laughed. Then Malinda's face turned serious. I was confused. "Malinda what's wrong?" I answered worriedly "Well, June," she whispered, "I need you to buy Pepper! But my parents can't find out, I told them I gave her to a man who was moving out of the town." I gasped. "Malinda! That's like illegal or something!" She looked embarrassed. "Well, when you say it like that it makes it sound bad!" I sheepishly grinned a bit. "Sorry." We both smiled when she forgave me.

My face lit up but then I remembered mom. "For how much to buy her?" I asked. "Well, you're my friend and Pepper needs you so you can buy her for $30." She smiled a bit. I laugh and hug her. "I would love to!" I exclaim. "Mom wouldn't mind, would she?" I thought. She's said I could have a pony! I pulled out the $40 worth of Christmas money I was saving and handed it to Malinda.

Part 2 of The Secret
by: The Author

I hug Melinda again "I can't thank you enough Melinda!" I grin so big that my face starts to hurt and she smiles. "Here hold Pepper for me, will you? I need to get some stuff for you" Melinda said and handed me Pepper's lead rope. Melinda ran into the stables and when she came back she had her hands full of the things I need for Pepper like her grooming kit, vitamins some hay and lots more. She laughed and said "I' ll help you carry the stuff to your place okay?" I laughed and agreed. When we got to my house Pepper snorted and sniffed the air, getting adjusted to her new home, a small farmhouse and a small paddock that was behind the house. We led her to the paddock behind the house and let her loose in the paddock. I grinned and hugged Malinda again. "Thank you so much Malinda!" She laughed and hugged me back "you're welcome". When Malinda left I got to work. I got a broom and swept out the old shed in the paddock while Pepper grazed on the tiny blades of grass. I grabbed some straw from the pile of stuff Malinda gave me for Pepper and spread it out on the floor of the shed. I grabbed a red bucket, ran to the house and filled it with water from the tap, ran outside and put the bucket in the paddock. Then I hear a car rolling into the driveway..... PART THREE IS COMING!
