I hopped out of my parents car headphones plugged into my ears I was listening to Toy Soldiers by Mariana's Trench they were my new favorite band. I stretched and let out a long yawn before walking around to the back of my Parents pick up truck where my parents where waiting with my 16 hand chestnut arabian gelding Splashing Mountain's otherwise known as Splash or Splashy. I patted his shoulder and gave my mom a huge hug.
A huge lump formed in my throat as I remembered once again that my father was serving in Eastern Afghanistan at the moment fighting for his country and wouldn't know that he'd been accepted by Canterwood Crest until his deployment was over.
I shook my head to clear it and started leading Splash away from the trailer and to the stables. We walked side by side down the cobbled walk way down towards the large black and white stables. I slowed as the stables, paddocks and arenas came into view as well as parts of some of the schools riding trails.
I kept leading Splash and once we were inside the stables I headed straight for where i'd been told that Splash's stall was to be and let him in I hugged him and took his bright lime green lead line that attached to a lime green halter. I hung up his lead line and turned around to find someone watching me from across the aisle. I waved to them and looked away suddenly very uncomfortable.
'hey, girlie!' i said, standing on my tippy-toes and hugging my gorgeous arab mare's neck. we were the perfect match. her dappled grey coat gleamed from the sun that streamed through the tiny window in the back of her stall. deciding to groom her, i slipped easily out of her stall and strutted down the aisle to the hot pink compartment reserved for all of moxy's stuff. i had five adorable pink and purple saddle pads, all with 'moxy and kimber' stitched onto the lining. so what if they were over a thousand dollars each? they were perf for us. i also had two bridles, one for practice and one for showing, hanging in the back. they both had pretty colored diamonds lining the nosebands and also had 'moxy' stitched onto the headpieces. my saddles were on saddle racks nearby, both shiny, gleaming black. i grinned, tossing my perfect blond hair and going onto my toes again to try and reach the grooming kit. i felt a presence behind me, and grinned, turning around. an adorable blond boy grabbed the kit for me and passed it to me, winking. i raised an eyebrow and walked past him, waving flirtatiously. i bumped into someone and smirked, turning to them. 'watch it.' i said, hand on hip and perfectly waxed eyebrow raised.
I hurried to help my mother who'd chosen that moment to enter with my saddles one was dark brown and other was a black saddle for showing I took one and helped her carry them into the stables tack room I bumped into someone I heard a girl's voice say, "Watch it" I blushed and said, "Sorry! I didn't see you coming around the corner there..." I blushed even deeper as I squeezed past the girl into the spacious tack room and put one of my two Saddles up on it's respective rack.
I then turned to my mom and put my second one up on the rack took my bridles from her and hung them up then I went and grabbed all of my saddle pads that were resting on top of tac box and put those away with my saddles and bridles. I then put my tack box underneath the racks were my saddles were. I nodded to the girl as I passed by her again on my way to hang up my three extra lead lines and halters in case I lost one or if Splash broke them.
I patted Splash as I stopped in front of him I smiled and said, "Boy oh Boy buddy look at this you've got a brand new halters and lead lines your gonna have loads of fun with these" I rubbed his white blaze that stood out against his bright golden copper chestnut coat. I was glad i'd taken the time to give him an extra long grooming and bathing then usually his coat was still a stunning shade golden copper.
I tapped my fingers on Splash's stall dorr before turning around walking back towards the girl I tapped her on the shoulder and said, "uh...i'm...um..uh... really sorry I uh...bumped into you earlier...is...is there any way I can um...uh..um.. make it up to you?" I blushed at my horribly inability to talk straight around girls.

after grooming moxy daintily until he shone like a silver dollar, i redid my makeup and fixed my hair before starting to leave. just then, the same guy who'd bumped me came up to me and started stammering. something about making it up to me. i smirked and snorted, cocking my hip and tipping my head back to look up at him. ' carry my stuff.' i told him, shoving my prada bag at him and turning on my heel to strut out of the stables, him trailing behind.
I blinked and jerked head back surprised before I stammered, "Oh..uh..ok..." I held her bag carefully that from it's looks probably cost a few thousand dollars. I shook my head a followed her out of the stables I had a suddenly feeling that I shouldn't have said what i'd said because she'd start using to do all of her stuff for her. I wondered where we were going as we walked up the dark grey and light grey cobbled walk way that lead to and from the stables, arenas and paddocks.
I kept my gaze fixed on the girl and where we were going so I didn't try and make even more of a fool of myself then I already was.
when we arrived in front of orchard, i turned and snatched my bag, tossing it over my shoulder and smiling my gorgeous movie star smile. 'thanks so much.' i said fake-sweetly, and tilted my head. 'i didn't catch your name.'
I let my gaze wander around us as we head up a pathway that lead to dorms I realized then that we were probably heading to her dorm hall. I stopped when shed did let her take her bag from me I looked around at the building before my gaze snapped back to the girl as she started talking. I said, "uh..Your welcome...and um... i'm Fennmore and I um...uh... didn't catch your name either" I blushed and ran my hands through my slightly blonde hair as I waited for her to respond to me.
