here's an update. This bit is more descriptive and all. I feel it is anyway
“What aren’t you telling me Lucas?” Leah accused, staring at him with cold eyes. “Don’t worry ‘bout it.” Lucas shrugged, giving Patience a stroke, who was now tense as well. Leah took a deep breath and sighed. It would do no good to make Patience stress. But she would find out what Lucas was keeping to himself. “So, what are you…” Lucas was cut off as Matt started jogging towards them. He slowed down when he noticed Patience, his breathing coming in heavily. “I found your Aunt, and I rang Robert. Robert should be here in the hour.” Matt’s appearance seemed messier than usual. He had purple bruises forming underneath his eyes; strands of hay were stuck out everywhere all over his thick brown hair and his clothes had some type of substance on them, which looked a lot like oil to Leah. “Are you alright Matt?” Lucas asked, frowning as he also took in Matt’s appearance. Matt sighed. “Yeah, sure, I’m just a little bit tired. I haven’t been sleeping well lately.” “Why isn’t Robert coming now?” Leah asked, glancing from Lucas to Matt. “Because he has other clients to go see first, Flye isn’t in pain or hurt so he doesn’t need immediate vet care.” Matt said, crossing his long arms across his chest. “But what about the lump? It could be causing him pain.” Leah frowned. What if Flye was distressed about the pain but hiding it? Robert should come to their stables first, not the others. “If he was in pain he would be showing it…You know that already Leah.” Matt looked at her annoyingly. “If you are worried about him, go groom him or something until Robert get’s here.” Lucas said gently, glaring at Matt. “Well, I have to go exercise Storm so I can’t groom him. But can you tell me when Robert gets here?” She looked hesitantly at Matt. “Why don’t you go have a break, you look awful.” The tension left Matt’s eyes and a smile lit up his face. “Thanks. I really need one.”
“Well…err…it would…not be so stressful for him.” Lucas picked at the lead ropes’ loose strings, his face blushing.
