by Gabrielle | A hurricane was coming! I ran towards the paddock to get Lavish. I had to get him and My Shine to safety. When I got there, my blue roan gelding had disappeared. I whirled around. “Lavish!” No answer. I ran into the barn. From the darkness, My Shine nickered worriedly. I grabbed her halter and pulled her out of her stall. We both ran outside into the rain…

by Jeanna Briggs | I shifted position, wincing as blood rushed into my foot after I had been sitting on it for two hours straight. I loved my job, but I didn’t love the sitting and staring at the computer screen for hours.

The Unicorn Dare

by Angelica | No. I shouldn’t. I really shouldn’t. Why am I doing this? All these thoughts were running through my head as I did what possibly was the stupidest thing I had ever done.

by Libby | Smoke rose into the starry sky as Native Americans danced around the blazing fire, their black hair swinging back and forth in broad braids. Their faces turned up to the sky as their hands reached up into the stars. They sung mystical words as they pleaded to the gods…



Tiger Lily
