    She slipped into Raven's stall. He had earned it a few weeks ago. She fed him the apple and patted his neck. "Don't get too attached," her father's voice said behind her. Tania turned around and glared at him. "Why?" she demanded. "'Cause with nobody working him but me, there isin't much use for him," he said and walked away. Tania gaped after him in disbelief. Wasn't he her horse?

    Tania's mom dropped her off at the dance. She had put on clothes that Jesse had recommended. A Red block T-Shirt, a blue denim and cowboy boots. "Hey. You look pretty," Jesse said. "Thank you, you look handsome yourself!" she said and smiled. "So I was wondering, if you might want to go out sometime?" Jesse asked. Tania smiled. "I would love to!" she said and they walked inside. Tania had a great night. Line dancing, chating, slow dancing with Jesse. But at the end of the night the last slow song played. Tania went inside to find Jesse. Well she found him alright. With his arms tightly wound around Mandy"s waist. And they were kissing. Tania marched over to Jesse. "You jerk!" she yelled. Jesse stuttered at first, then he just shrugged. "Seriously? You think you can just shrug it off? Forget it. It's over!" Tania said and stormed out. Then she ran. She had no idea where she was going, and she didn't care either. Finally her legs collapsed. Then it started raining. Tears and raindropes streamed down her face. No, it wasn"t raining, it was soaking. She had no idea where she was, and where home was. She looked around. There bofere her stood the black horse she had seen with Raven. Head hanging low, soaking wet. "Hi boy,'' Tania crooned. The horse looked up and walked towards her. It stood sideways so she could get on. Thanks to her strong legs, Tania managed to leap onto the wet horse. It slowly started walking towards home.

    Sorry for spelling and gramar, the computer doesn't fix it :(

    Tania slowly opened her eyes. Her curtains were wide open and she felt better rested than she had ever been before. She gazed at the barn through her window. A black horse with four white socks lazily walked out of the big double doors. He wandered to the fountain and drank water alongside Raven. Then it hit Tania. That was the horse that carried her home the night of the dance. Why did she run away? Oh yes, Jesse. She lazily got up and pulled on riding jeans and a yellow to. She slipped into her boots and grabbed her hat from the hanger behind her door. She went downstairs. In the kitchen her grandmother was busy making a huge breakfast. "Morning sunshine. Had a nice nap," her grandma laughed. "How long was I asleep?" Tania asked. "Two days," her grandma said. Tania almost fainted. "Two days?" She shrieked. "Well, you were pretty exhausted," her grandma smiled. "Why don't you head outside? Your papa has a surprise for you," she prodded. Tania grunted. As if her dad wanted anything to do with her. But, she was obedient and walked over to her dad who now had slipped a halter onto Raven. "So, I've got work to do. Turns out this horse is broke," he said gesturing to the other black horse. "And when he carried you home, I put him in a stall with feed and everything. But he kicked the door down and galloped off onto the plains. Next morning he's in the stall, eating as if nothing happened. So, I leave his stall door open and he comes and goes as he pleases. But nobody can handle him," her dad finished his speech. He handed her a halter and led Raven away. The horse gazed after Raven, but didn't follow. Tania looked down at the halter in her hand. She knew what it meant. It was code for: here, see if you've got the guts to try. Tania took a deep breath and looked at the horse. She looked at him, but instead of telling him to come closer, she asked. He looked at her as if saying: "good, you respect me, I obey you". She slipped the halter onto his head and led him away to show her dad.

    Her dad wasn't sure how to react. How come his daughter was able to handle a horse that he couldn't? "Good," he said and nodded. That was code for: "huh, you can go now". Tania hesitated a moment, then spoke up. "What do I have to do with him?" She asked. "Give him a name. You can't go on calling the horse 'him' forever. Then you can try riding him tomorrow, since he seems broke," her dad said. "A name? So does that mean we're keeping him?" Tania asked excited. Her dad turned back to Raven. "I don't see why not. As long as you ride him and make sure he earns his keep," her dad said. Tania glanced at Raven. "And what about Raven? Are you still selling him?" Tania asked. "Naw. He's a good ranch horse, and I like him," her dad said as he tightened the girth and patted Raven's neck. Tania was happy. Even though her dad took, no, tore Raven away from her, she was happy to see him stay. She liked him. She looked at the horse dosing off next to her. "I think I'll take him for a walk and try to think of a name," tania said. Without waiting for an answer, she led the horse away. They walked out behind the barn, over a few small hills to the woods beyond.


    Any name suggestions for this horse? :)

    Tania gazed out the window. She was in her last period, Spanish. She really didn't want to be sitting here. She started daydreaming about her new horse, whom she named Black Magic. "Tania!" The teacher's voice snapped her out of her daydream. "Yes madam?" She asked. "Can you tell me what the spanish word for love is?" The teacher asked. Tania fumbled with her hands. She knew this one! "Amor?" She asked uncertainly. "That is correct" the teacher said. Just then the bell rang. Tania was first out the door. She hurried across the football field to the parking lot. She spotted her grandma's white truck where it usually stood. She rushed to the truck and jumped in. "Hi baby, how was your day?" Her grandmother asked. Tania shrugged. "It was ok. Boring, as usual," she said with a smile to her grandmother.

    Tania was just heading to the barn when her dad called from the fountain. She dragged her feet over to him. "Get on Magic and ride out to the far pastures. Gather all the horses and bring them up to the barn, the doors will be open. There's a storm coming," her dad said. Tania gazed up to the sky, and sure enough, the sky was filled with dark clouds. How come she hasn't noticed them yet? "Ok," she said. She jogged to the barn. Her dad had told her the other day to never ride with tack in storms because the lightning will strike the metal pieces. She threw a soft blanket over Magic's back and slipped on a halter. Luckily he was good with guidance from legs, and not with the mouth. She vaulted onto his back and trotted past the barn to the woods' direction.
    *
    Tania was riding back to the far pasture for what seemed like the hundredth time. She only had the stallion left to find, and he'd head to the barn on his own. "Warrior!" She called. Suddenly it started dripping. "Warrior! Come here!" She called with more determination now. Suddenly the chestnut stallion came galloping past her and ran through the gate to the barn. It started pouring now. Magic wasn't in a hurry, so Tania decided to take her time. She lifted her face to the skies and sighed. The rain felt so good. She dismounted and lead Magic to the gate. She skipped and twirled and giggled all the way. "Tania!" She heard her father's voice far down. Tania gave another happy sigh. "Well Magic," she said to the excited horse. "I guess we'll be forever dancing in the rain".
    THE END
