Hey y'all! Hehe no I'm not southern. This takes place in Massie's horse riding place, Galwaugh. I hope you like it! And don't get mad at me if I don't have all the details right – I'm not really obsessed with the clique so I don't have every single detail memorized. PLEASE READ & REVIEW!
DISCLAIMER: I don't own the clique books because I am not Lisi Harrison. I'd rather own twilight, though.
As I stepped out into the bright sunlight, a wave of excitement rushed over me. I was going horseback riding for the first time in three weeks! Yes! I tried to remember why I hadn't gone for that long, and I remembered that it was because I was with Derrington practically every day. Ever since he'd asked me out, we'd been seeing each other constantly.
I was sitting in my room, at my desk, IMing, when all of a sudden, my phone rang. Who could be calling so late at night? I thought. It's practically twelve o'clock! At any rate, I swung my spinning chair across the room to the pink phone on my vanity table.
"Hello?" I said, sweetness dripping off every word. I had a feeling this was important.
"Mass?" said a familiar raspy voice.
"Speaking. And you are?"
"Hey, it's Derrick… you know, from school? I hope I didn't wake anyone."
"Oh, hey, Derrick. No, don't worry, I'm the only one home tonight." I remembered vaguely not being supposed to tell anyone if I was home alone or not, but whatever. What could Derrington do to hurt me? That thought made me laugh, and I had to stifle back a giggle so Derrick wouldn't think I had lost my marbles.
"Um, I was wondering if you wanted to go out with me. Sorry for calling so late."
"Um, okay. Sure. When?"
"Um, how about tomorrow night?"
"Sounds good!" I tried to contain my squeals of joy, with little success. "So, tomorrow it is."
"Yup. See ya." When I was sure he had hung up, I screamed so loud I was sure I would wake up everybody who was in my hearing zone, or whatever. Fortunately, I was home alone tonight so there was no one to get me in trouble. Bouncing with delight, I pulled on my pj's, brushed my teeth, and pulled myself under my blanket, fantasizing about the night to come.
The next day, I had my date with Derrington. It was totally awesome, and we really got along well. We continued the trend, and pretty soon everyone new about us. We were a new item. You know the rest.
*End of Flashback! *
Anyway, today I was finally seeing my horse, Brownie. Derrington was coming too, shocker. I sighed. We really were inseparable these days.
Finally, for what seemed like hours, I got to Derrington's house. His house was near mine, so I had just walked over. He was going to drive me to the club.
"Hey, babe." He greeted me with a smile and a hug.
I grinned back. "Are you ready to go horseback riding?"
"Whoa, whoa, whoa. I'm riding?"
"That's what I said. Scared?"
"No way! You and your little horse better watch out!"
"Uh-huh." I giggled. "C'mon, let's go!"
After a few minutes of driving, we were finally there. I nearly flew out of the car and ran to the barns. Looking for a specific horse, I finally found Brownie.
"Oh, Brownie!" I cried, and held my horse in a tight hug. "I missed you!"
"Hey, Mass, which horse should I use?"
"Hmm… you can have… Junior! He goes pretty easy, you might need that."
He snorted. "Right. Don't under estimate." He flexed his muscles. "Shall we, then?"
I nodded wickedly. I let Brownie out of her barn, then Junior. He whinnied.
"Easy, girl!" I laughed, petting Junior's fuzzy mane. It felt so good to be back.
