When Darkness Sets In

Next thing I knew I was back on my bed. My head throbbed with a hundred needles as blood pulsed faster into my now active brain. I sat up and rubbed my temples gently, How did I end up here? I wondered. Felt around my bed, no one was there. What time was it? I slid off my soft bed and headed in the direction of my door with my hands outreached. There! I opened the door, feeling some satisfaction and started to head downstairs. But I stopped when I began to hear the voices.

“Do you think she would agree to that? You know he means so much to her,” came the soft, worried voice of my mother.

“She will have to, she won’t ever be able to ride again. She has too at least see that,” came the harder voice of my dad.

Pain cut though my heart. They were talking about Midnight, they were talking about taking him away from me! I spun around and went as fast as I could back to my room. My shoulder hit the door frame with a resounding smack, just adding to my fuel of frustration. I grabbed the door and slammed it shut. Everything was silent. How could prove to my parents that I could keep Midnight? They wouldn’t even let me go to the barn!

Multiple footsteps clattered down the hallway. I stood in the middle of my room, dreading what was about to come. They came in my room, quietly surrounding me and making me feel like I was in danger.

“Anna, we can talk about this,” came my dad’s voice to my left.

“You want to sell him!” I sobbed, “How could you?”

“Look at this with our perspective, you are blind and will never be able to jump again. Why would you need a horse, especially as one as nice as Midnight?” he told me, slowly getting frustrated.

“Because he is the only thing worth living for,” There, it was about time that my parents knew how much Midnight meant to me.

“He’s only a horse, honey,” came my mom’s voice from my right.

“You will never understand! Never! I will ride again and there is nothing you can do about it!” I screamed at them, burning just a bit of the frustration I was feeling.

My dad got up quickly off my bed and I flinched back, I didn’t know what he was doing. The atmosphere relaxed around me as my dad stalked off. My mom looked at me, “It will be ok, Anna,” she said nervously and walked out after my dad.

“Like heck it will,” I snapped after her retreating back.
