A/N Found it!
I wake to the sound of Corr wailing and Puck whispering to him. She must've some in early to help Corr walk. Puck knows that Corr won't gallop again – but it doesn't stop her from trying to make him go faster.
"You're safe Corr" I hear her say gently. "You will always be safe Don't worry" I listen to her talking to Corr while wishing it was me she was talking to instead. Puck Connolly isn't something you can call yours I think. How do I make her part of me? How can I stop her from breaking her promise and drifting away? I silently get out of my bed, get out of the house and watch Puck walk Corr round in circles.
"You've got him to go round in circles." I say (A/N How Erudite! :P Sorry couldn't help it)
"It's not much" She replies with a sigh.
"It's definitely an improvement." She looks up and studies me. – Something that still made me feel uneasy.
Puck looks at the watch on her wrist. "I've got to get to Malvern's yard. There are a few horses I need to take out for a run. Are you coming today?"
I shake my head. "Maybe tomorrow."
"Ok. I'll see you this evening then." She says before turning around and setting off down the hill.
"Wait!" I call out "Why aren't you taking Dove?"
She turns back around again."I can't take Dove today. Malvern's strict orders. You can take her out for a run or something."
"I will. Later."
"Thanks" She calls out while setting off down the hill again.
Half an hour later...
"Mr Kendrick! What are you doing here?"
I look up and find myself face to face with George Holly.
"I think I should be asking you that" I say, happy that he's remembered me.
"Well I couldn't stay away. I should've come two years ago though; I heard you weren't racing anymore."
"It is true" I confirm
"I've also heard that the lovely Miss Connolly has taken you place." Lovely indeed.
"She has, yes. Except she isn't riding for Malvern. Which reminds me have you seen her working at the stables?"
His eyes widen. "She's working at the stables? I haven't seen her yet. I'll remind myself next time I go down there." I'm a bit surprised at this because Malvern has been praising Puck non-stop so I thought that he would display her with the horses.
"Do you have any horses in mind?"
He shakes his head. "No. I have got my eye on a few broodmares though."
We stand in silence until George Holly speaks up again. "I have to say Mr Kendrick I'd never thought I'd see you on the back of a normal horse." It took me a few moments to realise that I was still standing next to Dove.
"Oh it's Pucks." His eyebrows shot up "She left her at my house today."
"I'm stepping over the line here but are you two a par?"
"Yes." I admit
He smiles. "She's a strong girl. She'll never leave anyone; especially you."
I hope he's right.
A/N Yay! It was stored at the bottom of one of my cupboards where my dad chucked it in! Wahey! ~Thepurplecheeta
