A Horse Story
Posted October 26, 2007 by galatia9 and beamlette
Fenchurch: Oh, he's beautiful! Thanks for bringing Thunder out to see us, Mercedez!
Mercedez: Sure, Fenchurch! You'd be surprised, horses love to go out and have fun as much as any of US do! They really look forward to changes in their daily routine.
Mercedez: I think Thunder likes you! Would you like to ride him?
Fenchurch: Really? Do you think he would mind?
Mercedez: Not at all, he loves it! He's very adventurous.
Hiro: Fenchurch, what are you doing?
Fenchurch: Mercedez and Thunder agreed that I could have a little ride! It's been ages since I've ridden. You like horses, don't you, Hiro?
Hiro: Well... I never saw one up close until we had that one visiting us a couple weeks back... and I have to say he didn't exactly endear himself to me.
Fenchurch: Did you ride him while he was there?
Hiro: What?? Of course not! I was trying to make sure he didn't take a bite out of the seat of my PANTS.
Fenchurch: *snicker* I'm sure he wouldn't have done that!
Hiro: I dunno, the way he was eyeing me...
Fenchurch: Well, Mercedez says that Thunder has carried two riders lots of times. Why don't you hop on up here?
Hiro: *dubious* He looks awfully tall...
Fenchurch: Do you need a leg up?
Hiro: No! But...
Mercedez: Go ahead, Hiro, I've got a hold of him. Plus, he's really patient with new riders.
Hiro: I was right... he IS awfully tall! And slippery!
Fenchurch: *giggles* To hang on, you have to grip with your thighs. But you seem to have a pretty good hold on ME already!
Hiro: Yeah, and I'm not letting go!
Fenchurch: I wish we could really go somewhere! Wouldn't you just LOVE to take him for a gallop!
Hiro: How about a nice pleasant stroll?
Fenchurch: *giggles again* Horses don't stroll!
Hiro: I imagine Thunder is smart enough to LEARN how.
Hiro: I guess... this isn't so bad. It's kinda nice.
Fenchurch: You know, Winston Churchill said, "There's something about the outside of a horse..."
Hiro: "...that's good for the inside of a man." Yeah, I've heard that one. Maybe he was right... but that doesn't mean I'm ready to "jine the cavalry" just yet.
Hiro: Still... anything that gets me closer to you has to be a good thing...
Fenchurch: Mmhmmm... why do you think I asked you to hop up here?
Special thanks to Frank, Mercedez and Thunder!
