Scooby-Doo and the Phantom Stallion

Chapter 1:

Daphne sadly looked out the window.

Fred and Velma were holding hands and it killed her to look toward Fred now that he and Velma were together. It wasn't because they were together. She loved them both and wouldn't never think twice about hurting Velma.

Daphne was just so in love with Fred that just looking at him hurt. She remembered when sometimes when she would be frightened she would clutch his arm and he would tell her it was okay. He'd always protect her, but now he was too caught up in Velma to even talk to her.

Daphne wiped a tear off her face.

She, Fred, Velma, Shaggy, and Scooby Doo were on their way to another mystery. This mystery was different from any that they had ever solved.

Two people named Samantha Forester and Jake Ely called them to come to River Bend Ranch. A mysterious Phantom Stallion had been trying to attack Samantha and she claimed it wasn't her Phantom even though it looked exactly like him.

They had been driving for hours to get to Nevada.

Daphne was in the front passenger seat beside Velma and Fred.

"Daphne you sure are quiet," Shaggy commented.

She looked behind her. He and Scooby were munching on Scooby snacks. "I'm just thinking," Daphne replied.

"Almost here, gang," Fred said, sounding too cheerful.

"I hope we can solve this mystery. It's going to be harder then most," Velma fretted, sounding out of her character.

"There hasn't been one we haven't been able to solve yet, sweetheart. Besides Daphne knows a little about horses, her grandfather owned a ranch," Fred assured her.

"I hope so," Velma sighed.

They pulled into a driveway over a bridge.

"Finally here it looks it," Fred smiled putting his arm around Velma.

Daphne felt tortured. As soon as the mystery machine stopped she jumped out.

"This isn't no horse ranch, it's a cow ranch," Shaggy said, disappointed.

"Cattle ranch," Velma corrected as they got out.

A brown tabby darted toward Scooby then circled him. Scooby growled.

"Cut that out Scoob," Shaggy scolded.

"But Raggy," Scooby pouted with his ears drooping.

The cat ran toward the house as a redheaded girl and an Indian guy came out the house.

"Hey there, I'm Sam and this is Jake," the redhead said to them.

"Glad to meet you. I'm Fred and this is Velma, Shaggy, Scooby Doo, and--," Fred hesitated, not seeing Daphne. "Where's Daphne?" he asked, alarmed.

"Wow Fred, this is like the first time you've noticed Daphne in a long time," Shaggy told him.

Daphne cried behind the barn. She couldn't take much more of this. She'd been crying for a while behind there.

She sat on the ground. "Why did this happen? I love you Freddie. Please……I wish you would just realize I've always loved you!" Daphne sobbed, head in hands. She didn't know it but Fred was right behind her the whole time she said this.

"Daph?" Fred asked, softly.

Daphne shrieked in surprised shock and jerked around. "Freddie, what are you doing sneaking up on me like that?" she wiped her eyes again.

"I was trying to find you," Fred crouched beside her.

"You mean you just figured out I was missing?" Daphne said, sadly, looking straight into his eyes.

Fred couldn't look away. Her eyes were piercing his. He could see every emotion radiating from her. Fear, pain, sadness, love all at once. It was overwhelming. He suddenly realized how much he had hurt her. He knew he didn't love Velma as much as she loved him. He just didn't want to hurt her. They just didn't mix well. Some how inside he felt she knew that too.

"Daph, please I'm sorry sneaked up on you," Fred hugged Daphne.

She flinched at his touch, "I don't mind that you and Velma love each other, it's just before ya'll started dating you treated me almost like a girlfriend and now you pay me no attention at all as if I'm invisible. I miss the old days, Freddie. You don't have to love me back, I just want things to be the way they used to be," Daphne said to him.

"Alright, Daph," Fred smiled, but in his mind his thoughts screamed, 'But I think I've always loved you too. I was just to blind to realize so. I decided to go out with Velma which wasn't smart because we're too much alike.' He knew they would break up soon. Velma was acting strange.
