As I shakily climbed onto Minas's back, he snorted, I sighed. "We've got this buddy," I murmured. He didn't reply, not even a grunt! I stroked his soft fur. "Let's go!" I shouted, squeezing my legs on his stomach. He grunted and began galloping to the Ballator. "He's got to be here!" I groaned, getting frustrated. "Where did he run off to? I could've sworn I saw him here!"
Minas perked his ears and trotted to the left. I stared where my Ballator was staring at, until I saw him. I reached out to touch him, but I knew I was too far to even feel his soft fur. "I need to get him." I gasped. "He's more beautiful than I thought." I stared, astonished for a few moments. Minas travelled after the wild stallion. The stallion stared at me. ME! Wow, his eyes are so gorgeous! I blinked a few times to focus on capturing him. I dismounted my ballator and carried an extra lead.
I slowly walked up to the large horse. He snorted and bucked around a few times. I reached out my hand to stroke his muzzle. To my surprise, he calmed down and sniffed me. He sneezed and stared at Minas for a few moments. "Will you come home with me?" I murmured. The stallion stared right into my eyes. I smiled a little.
The Ballator let out a yowl and bolted off. I instantly scrambled onto Minas and charged after him. I veered my horse over until we and the wild Ballator were side by side. The stallion eventually grew tired and stopped running. Minas stopped and sounded like he let out a relieved sigh. I got off and slowly put out my hand. The stallion stared at me but didn't move. I began to stroke his neck. It was so soft. As I stared into his eyes, Minas began snorting. I smiled at him, and began putting my spare lead around the Ballator's neck. He bucked around and bolted again. I screamed with frustration, getting on Minas. He didn't move a muscle. I kicked his stomach hard. "Go on, move you big spas!" I yelled. He flattened his ears and chased after him. The stallion soon stopped and lay down. I got off my Ballator and stroked the wild horse. "Please, come home with me." He flattened his ears. I didn't want to scare him off. As he got up, I backed up. The large beast didn't move, though. He eventually stared at Minas. He stared back. They both stared for a long time. I got a little nervous. Minas walked in front of me and snorted at the wild Ballator. The stallion didn't reply for a moment. He neighed and trotted off. I sighed with frustration and defeat. "This is going to be harder than I thought." I got on Minas and slowly followed after the Ballator. We did this for quite some time until I decided to go home.
The next day, I woke up early and excitedly got out of my bed. I felt that I was going to get that Ballator! I ran out my house and over to Minas's stable. I tacked him up and quickly got on him. "Today's the day bud!" I yelled happily. "Go on, lets go!" I said impatiently. Minas started trotting, and soon broke into a gallop. I looked everywhere for that wild beast, but I couldn't find him. "Come on, find him Minas!" I whispered. Minas perked his ears and galloped quickly. It felt like hours of running until we found the large horse, laying down. He perked his ears and got up when he realized Minas and I returned. He flattened his ears and neighed. I slowly got off my horse and walked over to him. "It's just me," I murmured. "Don't be afraid!" The large animal bucked around for a moment until he calmed down and sniffed my face. I backed up slightly. He stared at me. I felt a connection. I smiled and tickled his snout. He snorted. I laughed a little. As I tried once again to put a lead around him, the large horse galloped off. I rolled my eyes and walked over to Minas. I climbed onto his back and squeezed as hard as I could on his stomach. He grunted and ran after the Ballator. We walked with the wild animal until the sun began to set and Minas and I returned home. I was exhausted and felt defeated. I knew I couldn't give up, however. I hadn't failed. . . yet.
The next morning I got up at 6:30am. I was tired, but I knew I wouldn't be able to sleep without waking up two minutes later thinking about that darn horse. I rubbed my eyes and got onto my feet, walking down the stairs, out the door, basically walking like a zombie to Minas. I eventually forced myself to wake up. I tacked up my horse, got onto his back, and got him to just take a slow run to the wild Ballator. I wanted to take my time. I knew I'd be successful catching him. I could feel it! Minas walked about until he finally caught scent of the horse. He trotted over to him. The Ballator was munching on grass. "Hey buddy, I brought a carrot." I murmured, jumping down from Minas. As I reached in my pockets to grab the carrot, it was gone. I widened my eyes. I turned to face Minas. He was eating the carrot. "Hey! That wasn't for you!" I cried. I rolled my eyes and smiled. "Oh well. I can't stay mad at you." I walked up to the wild animal and stroked his snout. He stared at me for a long while. It was silent. I smiled at him. "Please, come home with me." I whispered. I felt a connection between this horse and I. I liked him a lot. "Be a part of my family. . ." I murmured. I slowly took the lead out. We both stared at it.
