It was a place I passed every day. Who would have guessed it was a trap? I fell to the ground and sobbed in the dark enclosed room I was being kept hostage inside. Someone will find me, they have to. I tried so hard to believe it, but I only doubted myself.

My horse and I trotted gracefully along the dirt road, admiring the beautiful trees to both sides. Spirit and I loved to take this trail in our spare time, and I often brought a book with me. We were nearing the large climbing tree, which my older sister and I used to play in when we were younger. I slowed Spirit to a halt, considering if it would be a good time to take a break. Crunch! The jet black stallion reared up. I tumbled down his back hit the ground hard. Another dress, ruined! After brushing off the dirt, I stared ahead at Spirit, who was on high alert.
“What is up with you, pretty boy?” I said in a calming voice. I could see the white in his eyes and he was breathing heavy. “Did you hear something over there, Spirit?” I pointed towards the tree. Something must have spooked him, he isn’t usually like this. I led him over towards the tree to see what might have scared him. In a flash, two men came running towards me and grabbed my arm. I tried hard to loosen his grip and take off on Spirit, but I couldn’t.

I cried even harder. Who knows what they will to my blessed horse? They could beat him, or just go ahead and kill him. I squeezed my eyes shut tight, hoping I would never have to open them again.
Thanks for reading :)
