'Grandpa can he be ridden yet?' Eryss asked gazing at Aspen ' No sweetheart he's just getting broken in to the saddle, now I want you to put a saddlecloth on his back every morning and evening okay' he answered her.
Eryss nodded her head and walked over to Aspen who was chewing his lead rope.
'Hey boy what do you think of your saddle ?'Eryss asked almost expecting him to answer her.Aspen just looked at her and then went back to chewing the lead rope.

Eryss was shaking as she picked up the phone.

She couldn't do it. She'd never had a job. She didn't know one end of a job from the other. What was she supposed to do?

This is silly, she thought, staring down at her trembling hands. She began to sweat. It's just a job.

I can't work a job! I've never worked an honest day in my life! She reached out to return the phone to its holder but it slipped from her grasp and fell with a crash to the floor.

Eryss dived after it, her heart dropping. Scooping it off the ground, she turned it over. When it had hit the wooden planks, the first number in the address book had dialed. It must have hit talk on impact.

Who is this? Eryss thought, listening to the ringtone.

"Hey, this is Clare. Who's speaking, please?"

It was full steam ahead now.

"hello?" Clare called from the other end.
"Oh, uh h-hey Clare! It's Eryss" Eryss stumbled on her words "um...Is your Mom there please?" She asked
"You okay Eryss?" Clare asked concern lacing her voice. Shoot. Eryss wasn't hiding her nervousness as well as she thought, it wasn't like Clare to ask such questions. Clare was caring and not at all indifferent as some thought her to be, she'd just been raised not to react to every slightly off syllable of a person's voice.
"Yeah, just kinda nervous." Eryss explained "I've never had a job before"
"No" Clare agreed "But you've met my mom before and she loves you."
"your Mom loves everyone, Clare" Eryss pointed out
"She does." Clare agreed "But she really likes you, she asks after you more than anyone else."
"Really?" Eryss breathed.
"yup" Clare assured her "and I talked to her about you working her, she thinks it's a great idea but she does want to do a mini interview so you have the experience. You have the job though."

'Oh okay, what time does she want to do it?' Eryss asked trying not to let her voice tremble.

'Just come at about 2:00 pm and that will give you enough time' Clare replied not noticing her friends voice.

'Okay I've got to go now'. Eryss said looking out the window at her Grandpa who was lunging Aspen.

'Bye see you tomorrow then' Clare said.

Eryss hung up the phone and walked to her room, your a complete idiot, what's wrong with you, she said to herself.

Eryss switched off her alarm and stared at the ceiling, today was Saturday and she was starting her new job and she was excited and nervous mixed into one.
Slowly she fumbled around trying to switch on the lamp,Get over yourself,it's just a job She thought to herself finally finding the switch.

" Here Aspen enjoy your breakfast, you deserve it. " Eryss told her horse.
She been putting the saddle cloth on him for almost a week now and Aspen didn't like it at first but he now didn't even flinch when Eryss laid it on his back.
She felt proud of herself, knowing she actually accomplished something without it going wrong!

"Now lightly squeeze him with your calf muscle".Grandpa called out.
"Okay" Eryss yelled back, she was having another riding lesson and she was trotting around the arena on her Grandpas horse.

" Okay now lope ", she whispered to the horse as she squeezed lightly, and Captain the horse she was riding went from trotting to a nice lope.
"Good boy, good boy " she said gently to the horse.

"Well done Eryss " Grandpa called out,"now drop one rein and hold the horn on your saddle".

Holding onto the horn she dropped one rein and Captain swung left.
"YIKES" Eryss shrieked as she gripped on to the saddle as if her life depended on it.
Then remembering how to stop the horse she lightly pulled the reins back and obediently Captain slowed to a halt.

"What did you think?" Grandpa asked walking up to them.

"I nearly came off when he swung left but it was fantastic".She laughed trying to think what she would have looked like.

"You'll get use to it but that's enough for today, now go cool him off and put him away" he said rubbing Captains ears.

"Okay and thanks for the lesson" Eryss said giving her Grandpa a hug.
"Come on Cap let's go cool down a bit" leading him toward the arena gate.

The front door of the ranch home blasted open and a blur flew through it. When it slowed to a manageable speed, Eryss was standing over the couch.

"What time is it?" she demanded.

Grandmother lay down her knitting needles on the cushion beside her. "There's a clock on the wall, dear. Go and have a look."

"Don't you have a watch?"

"What do I want one of them for when I have a clock, child? Heavens, you look agitated. Are you all right?"


Eryss was not in a good mood. Captain had bitten her on the arm when she had undone his girth and her toe was still throbbing from his heavy hoof when she lead him to the stable. She marched over to the wall and spent a minute puzzling out the time from the clock.

"Quarter to TWO?" The wail wound its way through the house. "I needed to be gone FIFTEEN MINUTES AGO!"

Grandmother turned and looked at the clock as well. "Why, dear, I do believe you're right."

Eryss reached for the phone and dialed Clare's number as quick as she could.
"Hurry up and answer the phone"Eyrss grumbled to herself.

"Hello this is Clare" the voice on the other end said.

"Hello Clare it's me Eryss, um.. I'm going to be about fifteen or twenty minutes late ".
Eryss said looking at her watch.

" That's fine thanks for letting me know, Mums a bit late anyway" Clare replied.

" Thankyou bye". Eryss hung up the phone and ran into her room.

Can't belielve I'm going to be late on my first day to.she pulled on a t-shirt and grabbed her shoes.
Ten minutes later she was seated in her Grandpas pickup truck heading over to Clare's house.

"Thanks Grandpa, I'll ring when I need to be picked up " Eryss called out as she jumped out of the truck.

" Okay sweetheart, and have a good time" he called back.

"Eryss over here" Clare called from the door.

" Coming " she yelled back trying to stop her voice from shaking.
Eryss jogged over to her friend so her voice would sound puffed rather then shaky.

"What's that mark on your arm"? Clare asked pointing to her arm.

"Oh that.. that was my Grandpas horse who decided he didn't like me" Eryss said in a sarcastic voice.

"Ouch that must of hurt, anyway come this way over to the Cafe" Clare said taking Eryss by the arm leading her over to a footpath that led to the Cafe.

Calm your self down its only an interview Eryss thought to herself as she waited with Clare in the office for her Mum to come.

I actually don't know to ask a horse to lope so just said how I ask my horse to canter I think (hope) it's the same thing!.
