Jakob slowed as he came up to the tree, and picked it off the branch.

Ophelia waited for Jakob where he had left her.

A sizable crowd had gathered, giving bets to Thaddeus. The decision was hovering around 50-50, with a slight crowd edge to Thaddeus.

Thaddeus smiled at his friend, counting the money quickly.

After the five minutes had elapsed, Isaiah nudged Artemis towards the area he'd designated as the start and finish line. He and Thaddeus would race around the entire park for a single lap, and he'd asked two men to place a marker of some sorts when they were off and away around the large park.

Thaddeus finished counting the money before he looked at his friend, "Who will be keeping this?"

Isaiah pondered this for a moment.

"Well now, that's a good question. I would suggest saddlebags, but I don't have them, so unless you do, we're going to need to be a little inventive."

8/23/2010 #67

Jakob returned, holding it out to her.

Thaddeus shook his head, "Saddle bags aren't good for racing."


Ophelia smiled softly, taking the ribbon from him, "Thank you," she said before moving to tie it back into her hair before nudging Victory into an easy trot.

Isaiah grimaced. "Didn't think so. Any chance there's anyone we trust to hang on to this in the park?"

Thaddeus shrugged as he looked around before catching a glimpse of a jaunty green riding hat. "It depends, do you trust your future sister-in-law?"

Isaiah said, "I don't exactly trust her, but she won't run off with it if we give it to her."

8/23/2010 #72

"You're welcome" Jakob replied, following her.

Ophelia smiled at Jakob before she heard her name. "Ophelia!" Thaddeus called for her, waving as he stood up in his saddle. Ophelia smiled as she motioned for Jakob to follow her as pulled Victory up between the two boys.

"Good morning," she said with a grin. "I wasn't expecting to see you two out here this early."

Thaddeus smiled, "Neither was I. We're racing and were wondering if you could watch the bets for us."

Ophelia nodded, "Sure," she motioned for Jakob to come over and take the money from Thaddeus.

8/23/2010 #74

Jakob trotted over to Thaddeus, and held his hands out for the money.

8/23/2010 #75

Thaddeus handed it over to Jakob as Ophelia smiled at him before turning her attention to the two boys again. "See?" she asked, "What's the track?"

8/23/2010 #76

"Whole park," Isaiah replied. "We're doing one lap, whole way 'round."

Ophelia grinned, "Good luck." she said.

"Thanks," he said. "Well then, we ready to go, Thaddeus?"

Thaddeus nodded, "Ready,"

8/23/2010 #80

Jakob trotted so he was alongside Ophelia.

Isaiah began, saying, "3...2...1...GO!"

He kicked Artemis into a gallop, taking off at a gallop.

While Artemis wasn't the fastest horse in the city, she was pretty high up there, and was definitely one of the best for endurance.

That was what he was counting beating Thaddeus with.

Thaddeus kicked Suri into a sharp gallop, keeping pace with Artimis easily.

8/23/2010 #83
Iron's Grasp

Isaiah kept a quick pace up, making sure he always kept a nose behind Suri.

8/23/2010 #84

Thaddeus glanced back at his friend with a grin before a chestnut horse burst past them. Thaddeus looked up in time to see Ophelia give both boys a mocking salute as her stallion burst past them.

8/23/2010 #85
Iron's Grasp

Isaiah took a look at Thaddeus, before urging Artemis forward to try to pass Ophelia.

8/23/2010 #86

Thaddeus sighed, shaking his head as he kicked Suri to catch up with the two, although Ophelia's stallion was built for speed and stayed ahead of them.

Isaiah risked a grin, knowing that Ophelia's steed might beat out Artemis in a sprint, but in the long lap around the park, his mare had the advantage in long-distance runs.

8/23/2010 #88
Secret Vesper

Ophelia glanced back, "Come on, boys!" she called with a laughing grin, "I've been racing him in the back country all his life. How'd you think he got the name Victory?" she taunted.

8/23/2010 #89
Iron's Grasp

Isaiah said, "Oh, just you wait. While she's not slow, Artemis is steady, and that'll win the race."
