Michael and Doug had ate and talked for awhile.
Michael was about to say something but then they heard the nay of a horse.
Michael laughed. "Sorry Doug, that's my horse. I guess she's hungry. Wanna come with me to feed her?? She is a great horse, very nice."
Doug sat there for a moment. "Sure, I guess I can."
"Great! Lets go!"
They got up and walked towards the barn after picking some apples from trees.
Michael opened the barn doors. "Good morning, my darling!"
"Doug, Saronia. Saronia, Doug." Michael said.
Saronia looked at Doug and backed up.
"Whats wrong? He's not a bad guy!" Michael said.
"I guess she doesn't like me." Doug chuckled.
Saronia started to jump around a bit and make strange movements.
She would back up then kick, or rear up and hit the wall like she was trying to escape.
Doug's face then changed and he just stood there staring at Saronia.
"You.." He whispered.
"Who??" Michael asked confused.
"I-- uh.. I just remembered someone that uh.. I used to know.. She uh.. Loved horses.." He stuttered.
"Oh, alright. Well, here are your apples girl." Michael put the apples in the stall, but she didn't touch them. She was in a dead stare with Doug.
"Well Mike, we should be heading back." Doug went to put his hand on Michael's shoulder, but Saronia tried to bite him when he did.
He jerked his hand back. "You son of a--!!" Michael cut him off.
"Now my horse does not deserve being talked to like that. Yes, she should have not tried to bite you. But, you will not curse my horse." Michael said sternly.
Saronia nayed like she was laughing.
Doug rolled his eyes.
"Now, Saronia. No. Biting." Michael looked at her smirking.
She leaned over and wrapped her long neck around his shoulders.
"Butt kisser...." Doug mumbled under his breath.
"What was that?" Michael asked.
"Nothing. But I do have one question for your horse."
Michael raised a brow. "And what might that be??"
Doug turned and faced Saronia.
"Is that your boyfriend??" He pointed to Michael. "Do you love him? Hm??"
"What?? Why are you asking my horse this??" Michael asked.
She looked down and back up.
"I am... Like a.. Horse whisperer. I can tell these kind of things by their actions."
He watched her as she walked up to Michael and then turned around, facing the wall.
"Awe... Look at that. She does. She loves you."
"A horse can't love a person like an actual person can though. It's just how horses love." Michael argued.
"No my friend. She is different from most horses. There is more to her than meets the eye."
"Your kidding right?? Well um.. Maybe we should head back then??"
"Yea. We should."
Michael started walking off, but Doug had something else to say to Saronia.
He leaned and whispered to her. "I know who you are. I remember you. I'm sure you remember me." He chuckled evilly. "And I know that you have feelings for Michael. I'll be sure to do some "magic" for him too."
Saronia had fire in her eyes and reared back, hitting the door of her stall.
Doug laughed and ran towards the barn doors, shutting them.
Saronia collapsed on the floor, tears streaming from her eyes.
Michael hadn't a clue of what happened.
Will he ever get the right clue??
