I stand on the cliffs looking over the sea and the sand. 3 years ago I would have been thinking about Gabe moving away and if Dove would go straight and the Capaill Uisce would go towards the sea. Of course I wouldn't have known that I was going to be the first female victor.
Only a few females have entered the race – 5 over the last two years. Of course there had been a small commotion, but by the second year everyone had learned to accept the fact that only a few women – Not the entire population of the island would enter.
Since my first time in the races I have won all of the races. (Of course on dove) Sean won't ride with another Uisce because he thought it would seem like replacing Corr; which we both couldn't bear to do.
I hear footsteps and immediately know who it is as his arms wrap around my shoulders. "Sit" he says after placing a kiss on my left cheek. I sit down close to him, resting my head on his shoulder. "What are you thinking about?" he asks. I have heard this question many times before and most of the time I'd tried to answer truthfully. "Three years ago" I reply.
He puts his arm round me and holds me tight as we watch Thisby at night - something that I was now familiar with after being in the races for 2 years. "Promise me" he whispers into my ear, his hot breath against my cold skin; voice low and calming. "Promise me you will never leave me. I can't bear to lose something precious again"
"I promise" I whisper back. Of course I would. He has only got Corr and I left. Only things precious left in life.
Suddenly I realise that Finn would be wondering where I was, I had only come to talk to Dory Maud about Finns clothes. Ruining the moment I stood up and wiped the dirt off my mothers' trousers. Even though I can afford new ones I sill wear my mothers clothes. They were comforting.
"I'm sorry Sean but I've got to go, Finn will be worrying about me." He looked up. In the darkness I could just make out the outline of his face. "Isn't Finn old enough to look after himself?" It was true, I have noticed that he has turned into a proper man now and a few of the girls in Thisby like him.
"I know but-"
"I understand" He says to me before leaving a kiss on my forehead "Now go Finn is waiting" After exchanging one last goodbye I got onto Dove and rode into the lights and music.
