It was an extremely dangerous scene!
In the distance, Jeremy-who was riding on a horse while preparing for a race with Zeke and the others-turned around when he heard the neigh and laid eyes on the heart-stopping
His pupils shrank, and he immediately rode his black, pure-
breed horse over.
After Moonshine raised its head and neighed excitedly, it placed its front feet firmly on the ground as it galloped happily across the racecourse with Corinne on its back. It was neither
averse to having her ride on it, nor did it show any sign of kicking her off.
Sunny-who was about to go over and save her was
dumbfounded by that scene and halted his horse immediately. ‘Is this really happening? How is Corinne riding Moonshine so safely and steadily?’
‘How is that possible?’ Rosie had a look of disbelief on her face, too. She had been looking forward to seeing Corinne fall off the horse and make a fool of herself, and when neither of that happened, she felt disappointed and angry.
‘How is Corinne able to control that stubborn horse when it won’t even let Anya ride it?’ Annie was in awe as she looked at Corinne with even more admiration. ‘Whoa! That’s Corinne for
you! If she’s able to tame such a fierce horse so quickly, then Uncle Jeremy won’t be a problem for her!’
After the brief scare had passed and Corinne was confirmed
safe as well as in control of the situation, Jeremy’s tight-knit frown relaxed gradually and he pulled his reins to slow his
He narrowed his eyes slightly, and there was a hint of admiration as he gazed at the girl riding a galloping horse in
the distance. ‘I wonder, is there nothing she can’t handle in
“Moonshine! Halt…” After a few laps on the track, Corinne pulled the reins to slow Moonshine down so she could rest.
Moonshine slowed down obediently as well and began to trot
Corinne stroked its mane. “Do you miss your owner a lot?”
Horses could not speak, of course, but Moonshine made some grunts that seemed to give Corinne a positive response.
“Corinne ! Corinne !” Annie chased after Corinne so that her
horse could walk side-by-side at the same speed.
“You’re amazing, Corinne! I didn’t think you could tame such a stubborn horse! I’m admiring you more by the second!”
Corinne’s lips twitched, and she shook her head. “It has a good
personality, though it is fiercely loyal.”
“That’s because you’re awesome! No one else can ride it!”
Corinne was speechless.
Rosie and Sunny had finally come over too.
Sunny looked at Corinne with a bright-eyed yet haughty expression. “I didn’t expect you to be so capable, Corinne. Tell me, how did you get my sister’s horse to listen to you?”
Corinne replied, “I didn’t do anything special. I just rode it because I felt connected to it by fate.”
Rosie could not stand Corinne’s self-praise. ‘Tch. Where did she get the cheek to say that she’s ‘connected’ to it ‘by fate’? What kind of fate could a poor girl who grew up in the countryside have with such a noble pure-bred horse? If Jeremy hadn’t brought her along to the ranch, she might’ve never had
the chance to come in contact with such an expensive pure –
bred horse in her entire life!’
Rosie snorted. “How about we race then, since you can tame
Moonshine so well?”
Corinne cocked an eyebrow and looked at Rosie. She then
glanced mockingly at Rosie’s injured foot and said, “Is your foot alright? Will you blame me if something untoward happens?”
Rosie curled her lips stiffly and forced an awkward smile. ”
Everything that happened in the past was a misunderstanding,
and I’ve already apologized to you, too. Is it that hard for you not to hold a grudge?”
Rosie made no secret of her dislike for Corinne when no one was around, but she pretended to be kind to her whenever she
and Corinne were in front of others.
Corinne almost felt bad to expose her charade in light of the effort that Rosie had put into the acting.
Corinne shrugged and smiled slightly. “Just kidding! We can race if you want. I have no objection.”
