A Fallen Dream

Horse Racing'Hush, Dream!' I whispered as I finished brushing down Dream, my beautiful silver mare. Checking the gear was all on, I stepped out of the stables and onto the track.

I was blown away by the noise - people cheering and waving their bets. Somewhere amongst it all a commentator yelled, And finally, here's young Kat, with her horse Dream! I don't think anyone expected to see such a young rider in the final of the Derby.'

As we approached the gate Dream seemed calm, trotting smoothly and hardly flinching. But I felt like I was going to be sick. 'You'll do great.' I heard my mum's voice echo in my mind.

I mounted Dream, slightly comforted by her calmness. But as we stepped into the gate I felt a wave of panic. My blood was pounding in my ears so loud I couldn't here, time seemed to slow. Suddenly the gate swung open! Startled, I dug my heels in and Dream was racing, faster than I could have hoped for. Every moment I thought I was going to be sick. What was I doing?

Then I heard the commentator scream, 'and Kat's in first place! She could actually win!' Suddenly I realized that me and Dream were winning! It was all going so great. We were so far ahead...Then there was a yell, and suddenly there was a girl chasing her dog. Right in front of me. How they even got there I don't know, but I screamed and Dream swerved. I tried slowing her down, but she was going so fast.

We were going straight into the barrier. There was a loud crunch, and I was flung off of Dream as she stumbled and fell, the barrier piercing into her. I could here yells, and Dream let out a piercing scream. Blood and dirt sprayed my face as I crashed to the ground, skidding along. Dream must have skidded a bit too, but all I could see were red circles appearing before my eyes as I slipped out of consciousness.

'Kat?? Kat?' a voice came to me through the darkness. I opened my eyes, and relaxed as I saw my mum. 'What is it?' I croaked, sitting up before yelling in shock.

I was in hospital. My injuries resulted in fractured ribs and a broken arm.

1 week later...
My mum wheeled me into the stable. 'She's in there.' She pointed at Dream's stable, leaving me there. She left while I wheeled myself gently in.
'Oh, Dream!' I whispered. She lay there, eyes dull, coat ungroomed and dried blood splatted on her leg. Or, what had been her leg. Now, in place of her right front leg was a large, swollen stump.

Seeing her like that, I wanted to cry. Easing myself out of my wheelchair, I sat next to her and buried my face into her's. 'We're gonna get each other through this.' I whispered, as I started to cry.
