Author: Hey!:) Sorry for the long wait on the sequel.I'm not totally sure
how and where it's going to go. It'll be slow, but it'll be worth it.
Hopefully. ^^ I'm also working on 2 other stories at the moment.I'm a busy
I wasn't sure why, but I was tired. I was hardly ever tired at this time a
day, so it hit me as odd. I'd had a good sleep the night before and my
brothers even let me sleep in a bit.but I was tired. Though I was plagued
with such a feeling, I wandered from front porch, where I had been sitting,
to the barn. I knew Frank was in there, cleaning up a bit. I decided to
surprise him. Maybe it would wake me up.
I peered into the window, which forced me to go on tiptoes. Though I had
grown a good 3 inches in the last four years, the window was still a decent
height. I snickered a bit as I watched Frank, bent down a bit with a horse
hoof held tightly between his legs, his fingers tightly wrapped around an
object while he dug at the rim of the shoe to rid it of dirt and mud. He
had been doing it a lot lately as our horses had a habit of trudging in the
mud after a good rain.
I bit my lower lip and slid around to the front where I pushed the door
open a smidge. I then slid inside and hid behind Mac, who was standing
silently in his stall. I hushed my horse, who was beginning to grow excited
and I slid around the mammal to the stall door. Then, without any warning
what so ever, I tackled Frank from behind and caused him to lose the horses
hoof and fall forward. The horse, who happen to belong to Jesse, quickly
knickered and took off down to the end of the barn and Frank let out a
rather loud curse before pushing himself up and pulling his hat off in
frustration. I quickly got up, a smile plastered on my lips. Then, before
he could say anything harsh, I rushed forward and gave him a hug and just
held him for a second. I knew if I did that, he couldn't get to mad at me.
'Emilia! Good lord, don't do that again.I mean it. You scared the
behgeezus' out of me.'
I recoiled from the mold of his chest and tilted me head a bit, my smile
fading as I tried to gain a serious expression.
'Sorry Frank.I won't do that again. Promise.'
As I tried to hide my smile that forced itself back on my lips, I gave a
salute like nod. Unfortunately, I couldn't keep a smile away for long and
Frank narrowed his eyes.
'What are yeh doin' out here anyway.aren't you supposed to be studying'?'
I glanced at him and sighed before leaning back against Mac's stall. The
beautiful horse that was my own rested his heavy head on my shoulder and I
ran my fingers idly down his muzzle as I spoke to Frank, who had reclaimed
the horse and began to work again.
'It's boring Frank. I know astronomy. It's real easy. Besides, ever since I
started school again, things haven't been getting done.'
Frank gave a sigh and switched hooves, after he'd been working for a good
few seconds, he replied.
'That's beside the point Emilia. You need to learn something useful.'
I glared at him for a second before folding my arms gently over my chest
and moving away from Mac's stall. I leaned against an empty one and picked
up a hat that was resting on the tack trunk and placed it on my head.
'Maybe so.But I'll never be an astronomer.'
With a quick smile, I dashed from the barn, leaving Frank in the midst of
replying and headed towards the house. No, I wasn't going to study. I was
going to my room though, to do something else. When I slid inside my room,
which was right next to Jesse's. I sat down at my desk and dug into the
drawer. After a second of fumbling, I tugged out a leather bound diary and
set it on my desk. Ever since the events that happened only four years
ago.I'd been keeping a journal of life. I wrote about Ma, about my many
life/death experiences, and of course, I wrote about Lincoln. I also wrote
about my feelings, about my wishes and well.about my brothers. I decided to
keep this entry short as I was going to go find Jesse.
Today is the twenty second of the eight month and I'm not studying. Frank
told me I should.but it doesn't do me much good. Hell, I know more about
the sky then anyone will ever know. I'm not sure where Jesse is.I think
he's in the back, working on a new wagon. He and I accidentally broke the
old one.like I told you before. Anyway, I'm going to see Jesse and maybe
lend him a hand since I did help in the destruction. I'll stop talking now.
When I was finished, I stashed it back in my drawer and slid downstairs. I
decided to steer clear of Frank and just go see Jesse and so I did. When I
came around the side of the house, I smiled a bit and decided against
