The Story of Us

If you truly love someone with all your heart, they never leave you even though they’re gone. I’ve wanted a horse for as long as I could remember. Every year for my birthday I would ask for a horse. Then a week later Christmas came and I would ask for the same thing, a white Paint horse with brown spots. Then one cold, rainy night everything changed.
            I was sitting in the living room at my dad’s house. We had the fireplace lit and the house smelt of burning oak. I was watching Pirates of the Caribbean on the T.V, when my dad came and sat next to me.
            “Livy” he smiled
            I just looked at him, blinking, tiring to think of what he was going to say. I was always good at reading peoples thoughts, but I never could of guessed was he was about to say.
            “I got you a horse! Her name is Luna, and she’s a white and brown Paint horse. Her owners were just going to let her run free, so I got her with no charge!” my dad explained.
            I was so happy! I didn’t know how to contain myself! I felt my eyes starting to water. Tears of joy, I have just gotten everything I could have ever wanted! I hugged my dad. I couldn’t stop saying “Thank You” for the rest of the night!
            “She will be here next time you come.” my dad said with a fake smile. He hated it when I went over to my moms. (Although, I preferred be with her.) I was just getting something at my dad’s that I would finally enjoy!
            Two days passed and I went back to my dad’s. My dad and I drove down the driveway, I looked in the field, and there she was. My dad stopped the car and I ran to Luna. As I kissed her on the nose for the first time, I felt like everything in the world was right.
            Over the years our relationship grew, we were now inseparateable. I would be out in the field with her for hours! We would lie out in the sun whole time. We would go on four hour long rides every day. Stopping to talk and let Luna eat some grass. When I rode her, it wasn’t me and Luna, we were one. I just love how the wind felt as we rushed passed the trees.
            Then when I had a problem, I would go out to Luna and just talk to her. I knew she was listening to me, because the whole time we talked she would be looking at me with her ears focused. We would talk sometimes for the the whole day. Often we would talk about my dad. He was an alcoholic and it wasn’t safe for me to be there. The only reason I was there was to keep Luna safe. Luna was my world and I wasn’t about to let anything happen to her.
            One day when I was outside brushing her, I made a promise to her. I told her that no matter what was going to happen I would always love her and take care of her. I cried a lot that day. I didn’t want to lose my life in a car accident, but then again Luna also my life.
            The next morning as I was leaving to my moms, I ran to Luna, kissed her on the nose and said “I love you, see you when I come back.” little did I know that would be the last time I would ever see her.
            Later that night I called my dad and told him I didn’t want to see him anymore, he was mean and I wasn’t safe over there. After I told him that, I quickly hung up the phone. I couldn’t talk though my tears. I wasn’t crying because I left my dad, but because I had left Luna.
            Luna wasn’t my pet, she was my friend, no, she was part of me. The world that was once right had come crashing down around me.  I had lost my life, my soul, and friend that never could be replaced. My grandma said that me being a Sagittarius meant that Luna was, in fact, part of me. She told me that I always have loved horses and I truly was half human, half horse. My time spent with Luna has taught me to love something while you can because you might lose it suddenly and a true relationship will last for a lifetime and a lifetime after that.
