Heres more sorry for the insane wait...it's due to insane homework and horses... :p

"This sucks, I hate it here. I wish I were riding." I mumbled to myself, the quiet of the room driving nails into my skull. The crazy need to compete in my brain wanted me to just prove them all wrong and show them that I could, in fact, make it all the way home...Airports and all. "Challenge accepted." I muttered. "Alright now to just convince them." A thought, an idea came to my mind a brilliant one. One of the ideas that only I would do to myself no matter how much it hurt. I decided that I would walk out to where ever they all were and show them that I could do it and they couldn't say anything if they see me walking. Painfully I got up and slowly stood to my weakened legs. I wondered how long it would take me to get back into competitive riding shape after all this time off.
The first step I took actually didn't hurt as much as I thought it would. Actually it didn't hurt that bad at all. So I continued my journey. One foot in front of the other I took my first steps since the accident all that really hurt were my muscles from laying down for so long. When I got to the doorway I hesitantly looked down either side of the hallway. I couldn't see them but I could here my dad's loud booming voice somewhere around the corner. My bare feet were cold on the blue linoleum floor. It was quiet all except the patter of my feet and the distant sound of my father's voice. I followed the noise and eventually came around a corner and all three of them were seated in cozy looking chairs with coffee in their hands.
"Hey guys!" I said cheerfully.
"Ty! What in gods name are you doing up out of bed?" My mother yelled.
"I wanted to prove to you that I could walk just fine...I doesn't even hurt that much mom."
"Ty, you are to stubborn and you need to stop this crazy competitiveness thing you've always had. Just because I made a decision in your best interest doesn't mean I said you failed. You need to adjust your ears so when someone says something you don't hear that you failed."
Well I wasn't expecting a rant on that level, but at least I proved my point.

"You know that I hate not being able to do what I think I can. It bothers me to no end and I wish you guys would realise that already and let me make my own decisions! I am fifteen and I deserve the chance to make my own choices with my own self. The pain that I'm in and the things I'm going through, you can't feel it, so why should it matter if I do something that hurts me or not, it's my pain, and it shouldn't have two things to do with you!" My voice raised to a higher level. With the throbbing in my back getting worse as my voice got higher I decided to leave it at that so I couldn't get more angry.
"Ty, it's because you are my child and what you go through does affect me. You don't feel Shadow's pain, correct?"
"No." I knew where this was going.
"But when she is hurt you do everything in your power to make sure that she is as comfortable as possible, correct?"
"Yes."
"And you feel like you have been an irresponsible horse owner if you don't do this right?"
"Yes, but..." She cut me off.
"Well when you are hurt and you don't let me do anything about it I feel as though I failed as a mother and it makes me feel irresponsible. So that is why I am not letting you make your own decision when you are hurt. Because when Shadow is hurt I'm sure she would rather be running and bucking in her paddock, but she goes on stall rest."
I had no words to say, so I hobbled away back to the quiet of my room and cried.

I had no words to say, so I hobbled away back to the quiet of my room and cried.
My tears flowed from my eyes harder than they had in a long time. Not since the day that I found out that my favourite school horse, before I had Shadow, had been put down. My mom was right and I knew it at heart, but she just didn't understand. I was a long way from home, and everything was new and unfamiliar. I was afraid, of what happened, I was afraid that I would never...No I couldn't have those thought running through my head. I would ride again no matter how bad the consequences and the side effects were. If it were the last thing I did I would get on a horse once more. I was also afraid that my life would never be the same again. I broke my back. I broke my back. The thought finally sunk into my brain. "I broke my back." I finally said aloud. "Wow. What am I going to do?" I whined and my face became warm with the river of flowing tears once more.
I curled up onto my side and brought my knees up to my chest, curling into the fetal position. I had just had my pain killers and I felt virtually no pain at all. At this point, the three week mark I had done all the old people activities that I possibly could. I learned how to do cross words and word searches, I was the Suduko master and all the nurses and doctors had a run down of all the shows and circuits I had been on. They we all just enthralled with the fact that I rode horses.

Sorry I couldn't write more...I have a lesson!

They we all just enthralled with the fact that I rode horses. They had all said that they had never known anything about horses and they thought that it was easy. By the time I was done with them they had changed their minds.
"Well Tyllore, I think that you will be able to make your trip home, in lets say about a week or so. The fracture is almost healed enough that it will no longer grind against each other and cause as much pain to you."
"Are you serious? I can go home soon? Oh my god this is such good news! When can I ride again?"
"Well that may be the problem, the fracture has to be fully healed, which can take another month, or even more depending on how easy you take it. But I'm sure
