I had been dreaming about Winnie almost every night and it was driving me crazy. So, I decided that the best thing for me to do was go ahead and tell her how I felt about her. I only had to figure out how I was going to do that. Then an idea struck me.
I will be in the barn tomorrow before she comes in to take care of the horses. After we have taken care of the I'll see if she will let me ride Nickers. If so I'll see if she will ride with me to the woods at the back of the field. There's a big rock that sits back there and gives you a good view of the neighborhood. Then that's when I will tell her how I feel.
The Next Day
It was just like I had planned, I was waiting in the barn for Winnie to show up. After we had taken care of the horses I asked her if she wanted to go for a ride and she actually agreed!
Sitting on the rock
"Winnie" I said quietly breaking the silence.
"Hmmm." she replied just staring off into space.
"I have something that I want to tell you." I stammered. That's when she looked over at me and I almost lost my nerve. But the look in her eyes made me continue.
"I…I… I ah really like you." I mumbled quickly, but so quite that she almost didn't hear me. Then she looked over at me and said….
" I like you too M!" then she gave me a big hug. I sat there in shock, I couldn't believe that she liked me too!
That's when she asked why I had chosen now to tell her. That's when I decided to tell her the truth.
"I figured that I had nothing to lose, if you didn't like me I could maybe try to move on. But if you did I just couldn't wait." he said in a rush, the whole time blushing.
That's when Winnie looked at him and said with deep heart felt words. "I'm glad you decided you had nothing to lose!" Then she kissed him
I know it was short but it was the best I could come up with.
