Okay. Here is part 8. meant to post yesterday but had an emergency with my friend so didn't have time to write it so i'm posting today and shall hopefully post on Monday next. Probably full of spelling and grammatical errors but it's posted at least :)
We stood there in shocked silence for a few minutes before turning away from the door and walking outside, not looking at each other. Surely Sam didn’t believe what Nuru had said about me, did he? I took the diary with me. Something told me I would need it. When we got outside Sam stopped and turned to me. I longed for his cheeky smile but did not receive one.
‘I think we need to give Nuru some time to calm down before coming back.’ He said curtly, and turned toward the stables.
‘Where exactly are we going?’ I asked a little hurt by his coldness towards me. His shoulders slumped and he sighed. When he turned back towards me his face had softened.
‘I’m sorry. It’s just everything Nuru just said made me doubt my judgement. Like I said before, I went through a lot when I ran away so it’s harder for me to trust, and I will tell someday. It’s just gonna take some time for me to trust fully again.’ He said
Some of the words came out a little choked and I just wanted to go over there and embrace him to and kiss him chase the pain away but wasn’t sure how he would respond. Before I could decide how to respond he took a deep breath and straightened up.
‘Anyway, in answer to your question, I’m taking you home. You need to get some supplies and belongings and we need to speak to your parents about you coming with us.’ He explained.
He was obviously determined that what had just happened would not change that I was part of the group. I began to hyperventilate and a sinking feeling entered my stomach at what he just said. He was going to speak to my mum? Was he going to tell her about us, or our powers?
‘Don’t worry. I won’t tell them anything you think we shouldn’t.’ he assured me with his hands on my shoulders.
I calmed down at his words and felt his hands move to my face which reddened at his touch and he gave me a quick kiss on the lips before scurrying off toward the stable to fetch Percy. He needn’t too though; I simply accessed the thread between the two of us and projected my thoughts to him. It was easy I thought now, like an unconscious effort, it was like the thread was always there, waiting, and I simply thought of Percy and it became an active link again.
Percy I called. Instantly his presence filled me and he answered.
Looks like we’re going back to see my mother I told him.
Sam had just disappeared into the doorway when I heard a yelp and saw him running out with a mask of fear fixed to his face. Percy followed him with a determined trot. I laughed at the image in front of me. Sam tried to grab my arm to get me to run with him but I stood my ground.
Percy stopped with his face a mere inches from mine and snuffed in amusement at Sam. Even though Percy had stopped Sam was still unsettled and remained behind me.
‘What’s so scary?’ I asked, feeling a little bad I was still giggling.
‘I can normally understand land animals, even communicate with some of them, but I can’t feel anything from horses and I don’t know why. And this one feels…strange…powerful.’ He replied
It is because we do not come from the land but are made from the ocean to but to travel on land. Percy’s voice answered in my head.
Interesting to know, I though.
‘Percy says it’s because they’re not land animals but sea creatures on the land so I wouldn’t worry about it. Percy means no harm. He’s just a little… proactive.’ I said putting my hands on his arms to comfort him this time and repeated his gesture of a kiss but this time when I felt him relax I deepened the kiss, showing him my need for him. Percy nickered in annoyance.
I am here you know. Just because I’m a horse… he complained
If you two are quite finished I believe we have a journey to begin.
He already had his saddle on and strapped so I climbed up and held out my hand to Sam. He looked horrified for a moment but then then composed himself.
‘That’s ok. I have my own mode of transportation.’ He said a little mysteriously and there was his mischievous glint in his eye again. I smiled at the return of my Sam- funny how I already thought of him as mine and me his.
He rapped on the ground and I felt a shake in the ground as Tawny appeared, only this time he was even bigger, big enough for Sam to straddle, which he proceeded to do. He gave me a wink as he disappeared under ground and within a few seconds appeared several yards down the road.
‘You better hurry up if you want to reach you parents before lunchtime, I’m fancying some of you mums stew and famous finger cakes personally!’ he shouted down the road to me.
I told Percy to go full speed ahead, Sam was going to eat my dust for lunch. Percy’s markings glowed as he took off into his wave gait and we soon whizzed past Sam’s confused face. He soon recovered and they took off underground.
I watched in amazement as I saw the dirt trail appearing as they moved forward and then disappear after a few metres appearing undisturbed so they left no evidence. A few times along the way Sam would disappear deep into the ground for a while before jumping out and doing flips, scaring the hell out of me the first time he did it.
It wasn’t long before the flat roofs of the simple dwellings in Yerin were visible and we turned toward Business Road, where all the shops we’re and my mother’s house and stables.
As we neared the familiar walls and green door of my house and slowed down so we travelled side by side I began to shake with nerves again. I wondered if she’d had time to calm down about me funning off mid work and taking a horse with me. I still hadn’t decided how much to tell her as well.
‘What’s wrong James?’ Sam asked as he jumped off and Tawny shrunk into the ground.
‘There’s something you should know before we go in, that is if you still wanna go in after I tell you.’ I said.
‘What is it?’ he asked worry creasing his forehead.
‘Well. My father ran away when he found out about me and you, and my mother… she’s still adamant she’s coming back. It’s better you just you agree with her on that.’ I told him.
‘I’m so sorry James. That truly sucks.’ He said caringly, pulling me into his arms.
‘It’s ok’ I said ‘it’s nothing compared to what you must have gone through.’ I said but felt bad for bringing it up. Sam winced a little but didn’t pull away until Percy whinnied to get things moving.
As I opened the door I heard my Mum making lots of noise in the kitchen with pots and pans but she wasn’t singing. As me and Sam moved into the room she saw us and dropped a pan.
‘James!’ she shouted at us.
