Hannah got a late call one very cool october night. The caller sounded like a older woman with a high pitched crackly voice.Describing to Hannah that she saw a devil or some kind of beast in the local graveyard. Hannah wasnt too sure about this,but she changed her mind when the woman said it even resembled a horse.After thanking the woman,she went and woke Derick,her foreman,and away they drove off with the trailer into the dark night. Upon comming up to the graveyard,Hannah saw no sight of whatever the woman told her about. Derick grabbed her hand,knowing she wasnt too fond of spooks and buggers,giving her a gentle smile and letting her know he would look after her.
After about an hour of looking for the creature,they decided to call it quits.The woman apparently had seen things or if there was something,it was no longer here.When they reached the middle of the graveyard,Hannah felt a weird,tugging sensation come over her.Giving her the urge to turn around and look one last time.She stopped,then looked over her shoulder,gasping at the beautiful creature she saw.
A Equ stallion was standing there,peeking out behind a tombstone.Looking at them with teal blue eyes. He was beautiful! How did he get here? Did he belong to anyone?..... Hannah walked towards to the stallion as derick watched from afar. As she neared,the stallion reared and let out a violent ear splitting scream.A scream that would give you goose bumps.Hannah didnt miss the warning as she saw him bare his teeth at her. Standing a bit closer to a tombstone for a cover in case he charged her,she gave the stallion a glare.Also adjusting her body stance.Showing him she wasnt all that afraid of him,but she wasnt gonna run from either. But that didnt stop him...
Slowly he inched closer,rearing up each time,walking on his back legs till he was right up on her.Then finally he came down on her,his muscular forlegs went over her shoulders,connecting with the tombstone,planting himself over her in a dominant way. In all this hannah had shut her eyes,but she hadnt moved. Slowly she opened her eyes to see his chest,craning her neck back to see him looking down at her.She pushed against him to move,but to her surprise she heard this beast say with recognition in his eyes''I have missed you my Hannah...''
Hannah froze and stared at him and stuttered''W-what?''
Again the deep voice spoke '' A long time ago,way before you can remember as a young child. You tamed me.But to your parents dismay they got rid of me.They claimed I was too beastly,too devilish and too wicked for a pure innocent mind such as yourself. Malcom is older than Iam,but he knows of me.I belong to Malcoms herd,or use too.But now that you have found me,I belong to you once again.Your old friend is back at last...''
Again Hannah stood there..not knowing what to do or say. The first equ she had,or remembered having was Malcom,but apparently that was not so.
After a minute or so,the stallion backed off her and stood there obediently.She led him to the trailer,loaded him up with no problems,then walked to the truck and sat in the drivers seat. She had forgotten derick,but he was still there with her.
''Hannah?...'' Derick spoke softly with a hint of worry.
She looked at him and spoke'' Derick..this means my childhood is a lie...half my life is a lie.Those dreams of being abused are real. Those dreams of seeing my parents take horses from me and have them killed or sold are real. How in the world did they change my memories? Did I forget things due to grief?...''She stopped and looked out the window.
Derick broke the silence again''Maybe that old woman...has something to do with all this...''
Hannah wondered that too,but right now,she needed to go home and get this stallion taken care of,then try to sleep.
''Derick? Will you share the couch with me? I think I need someone to hold me tonight..'' Derick smiled and nodded''Sure Hannah,anything for my boss lady'' He winked at her,causing her to chuckle. But before he looked away,she saw the happiness in his eyes. Derick loved her,but he was too shy to admit it...
A slow blush crept into her face,but she pushed it away as she slowly drove them all home...wondering what to do now...with her past...
Then a name shot into her mind...Beastly...
Memories of her childhood flooded back into her mind,images of her as a young girl with her first horse beastly..her beast..was home
