Smile Wings Reign

This is a story wrote while I was bored. It may not be good at all. Tell me what you think, should I continue?


My heart was pounding in my chest. The sensation was running through my veins as if it were my own blood. I was doing what I loved, running! We were heading down the final stretch; this was when it kicked into gear. The other horses were fighting for the stake. Puffs were rapid and feet were flying yet we were all synchronized. Now was my cue, I dreamed I had wings. What I didn’t know was that this would be the final time. From the outside I past the other horses they were running out of steam however I was just burning mine. I was on my final stride to victory when I heard the snap I tried to save myself and my jockey however I failed in the getaway. My weight went limp and I could no longer hold myself up. The pain shot through me like a thousand bee stings in my muscles, I felt the hooves pound against me as I slipped underneath there glorious bodies. How could it be that this was over?

This is not a story of a legend or even a race horse’s miracle recovery. This is a story of a horse, an athlete loosing what he lived for. My name is Wings Rein, and I was a racehorse.

Chapter 1:

The crowds roar went silent. That was how I knew this would most likely be my final memory. Why did it have to be so bitter? There were people in that crowd that had just won millions of dollars and now they were silently contemplating my fate, the fate was in there hands. The small palm frightened me, but it was so soothing I could feel her tears falling on my cheek somehow this gave me comfort. A whole lot of people rushed over and I could hear their shouts, wondering what to do with me. They managed to get me on my feet 3 men were holding the weight of my left leg. It was agonizing. I knew I would never race again, but worse I didn’t know if I would get to live another day. That night I was taken to a damp stall. I was frightened of the storm. I wanted to go home. Although a part of me somehow knew that it could never be. For what is a racing stables going to use a racehorse that can’t race for? I was empty. They lowered me into the stable and gave me injections to help the pain and left me there for the night. I dreamed I had wings, and my heart was pounding in my chest and the crowed was thunderous, I could feel the sensation of racing for the last time. I woke at the feel of the comforting palm on my cheek however this time it was bigger. I looked into a face of a girl with grey eyes and pale hair. She was kind. At that moment I knew she would protect me. The girl sat with me the whole night. "Be strong Wing" she whispered into my ear. We wondered what unknown outcome the morning would bring.

Chapter 2
The morning bought a cold gust with it. Beads of ice attached to the window panes. Fog had set by the ground creating silhouettes of the various gum trees. It was early in the morning, the sun was just rising at the base of the horizon. The girl was asleep. Her pale hair was golden against my brown coat. I could hear other horses breathing and shifting their weight from one hoof to another. The girl had stayed with me all night. She calmed me, I felt safe with her around. I wanted to stay with her. Footsteps were approaching and husky voices choked by the cold were carried by the wind. The voices were familiar. They opened my stable their faces grim and had empty eyes. They hastily propelled needles in me. What were they doing to me! My girl was taken out of my stable, Why did they take her away! A rush of the drugs was sent flying through my blood pinching at my muscles and nerves that it hit. The rush died and I was confused. I no longer had control of my body. The shaking was taking over. My muscles are screaming, trying to rip out of my body. There rough hands puling through my fine brown coat. Their hands were attaching a sling, however they were battling with my sprawling body. My three legs were airborne flinging and bashing against the walls of the damp stable. My sight was staring to fail. I can hear chains that are struggling with a heavy weight. The men were lifting me so my 4 feet were off the ground. By now they had backed a trailer into the stables and the winch managed to load me on. My trainer was waiting in the float. His hands were rubbing through my sweaty coat. I had stop shaking but I was hot, I was burning. The heat was trapped in my body I wanted to scream I wanted scramble but I could no longer move. The float was loud along the roads as the trucks past. The smells were so strange.

We had been on the road for a while when we pulled into a place filled with smells I recognized. Horse’s neighs and whinny’s were fighting with the wind. I could hear their hearts pounding as they flew around there paddocks. They unloaded me into a grand stable, it was home. My stable was waiting ready for me along with all the other grand stallions that had earned their right to stand among these stables. Instead of placing me in my stable they gave me another needle. This time it was a slow ache a numbing feel. The black was closing in. Rushes of warm and cold, It felt I was suffocating I didn’t know how to fight the darkness. I was scared.
