nts five tickets. I thought the event was going to be quite casual and boring but I was wrong. The place was separated in two. One side where the huge stadium and the horse tracks were. There were many obstacle courses the horses had to part take in and different tracks with mud and sand. Over the other side, there was a mini amusement park with bouncy houses, merry go around, swings, slides, see-saws and lots more. Many food and drink shops were in between the two segments. You could get your face painted by a clown as well or you could even purchase balloons. Since we already had our snacks and beverages, we didn need to buy any food from the stalls.

My father and grandpa both carried the igloos with snacks and juice over to the stadium entrance waiting for the security to let us in. Since we arrived early, the population was scanty and we could get the front row seats of our choice. Whilst my father and grandfather were reserving our seats, mommy took me and Lucy-Ann to get our faces painted. The clown asked Lucy-Ann what she wanted her face to be painted as and she chose the horse painting and bought a horse balloon. When it was my chance, the clown didn ask me what I wanted my face to be painted as. Instead he carried on and gave me the same paint and balloon just as he gave me sister. I was not pleased as I sometimes liked to be different from my sister. I wanted to be painted as a unicorn but, maybe it was fine.

The clown: ” There now you both look the same apart from the outfits anyways, that will be six dollars please ”

I couldn believe him. Soon, a crowd of people started walking in and thats when we walked speedily to take our seats. While waiting for the show to begin, I felt hungry so I grabbed a snack and a drink. Before I knew it, the stadium became crowded with thousands of people surrounding me. It was nosier and it got hotter by the second. A few sellers came and asked if we wanted to buy snacks or juice and we had to say no every minute. It got so annoying, are they blind? Don they see we have two igloos before us? I wondered.


I was alarmed by the sounds of huge drums knocking and trumpets blowing. The entire crowd was quiet and all attention was given to the host of the show.

The host: ” Good morning all, Welcome to our annual horse racing competition! ”

The host greeted the crowd and after some talking, he announced that the race will be ready soon. He then called and put fourteen horses on the tracks. The jockeys and their horses lined up side by side right behind the bar and when the signal was given to begin was shouted, the first horse bolted from the starting line and was ahead of the others. The jockeys whip their horses on the butt inorder for them to go faster. Dust was kicking up and horses were jumping up and down all around.

Lightning! Lightning!

The crowd shouts as the horse with number five labelled on it was near the finishing line.


The number five horse and jockey ended up winning the race as expected. It seemed as if lightning and his rider were the best players of all time. Round after round, lightning was the champion of every event and at the end, they were awarded first place, gaining many medals and trophies. Lightnings jockey was sponsored money as well. By the end of the competition the time was already noon. Before we left, our parents allowed us to go on the rides and it was so much fun. My sister and I went to the bouncy house, the see-saw, the slides and the swings. Before it had gone dark, mommy told us to stop playing and head out because the sky was overcast and it seemed as if rain could fall any minute. I was sad because I wanted to play more.

I sat in the car and looked through the window. As the car drove off, my eyes were pinned onto the horse stadium not wanting it to leave from my sight. My eyes felt watery and I somehow felt hurt. I blinked my eyes continuously just as tears ran down from my eyes. i could
t believe I would have loved this place I did
t wanted to go to show much. I held Zolene into my arms tightly and patted her head.

Me: ” You were right Zo- Zo-, I did have fun and now I am missing it ”

Zolene: ” I will miss it too lacey ”

Me: ” What! ”

Zolene: ”Woof! ”

I was for sure that this time Zolene did respond.

Me: ”Zolene, you can talk? ”

My parents, sister and my grandpa all turned around looking at me in confusion.

Me: ” Mom, Dad, Zolene can talk I heard it, she even spoked to me yester evening in my bedroom ”

Lucy-Ann: ” Yeah, like we would believe you! your so crazy! ”

My mother: ” Stop it Lucy! cant you be nice for once! ”

Lucy-Ann: ”What ! why does
t anyone like it when I am honest? ”

My father: ” Maybe your just hearing things, you know it happens to me sometimes.

Me: ” I am telling the truth, I heard Zolene talking. Did
t you? ”

My father: ” Am afriad no, we have
t ”

A moment of silence was in the car after th econversations. I was considering on whether I was losing my mind or what. When I got home, Zolene and I went upstairs. I locked my door whilst crying. Zolene jumped into my arms as if she was trying to hug me. After a while, I stopped sobbing and decided t go get some pet snack for Zolene, while I was on my way, I over heard my parents and grandpa speaking.

My parents: ” Dad, do you think our little girl is going coconuts? ”

My grandpa: ” Maybe not, well am not sure. Most kids have imaginary friends and stuff ”

My father: ” Well if she continues to hear Zolene talking, maybe we should take her to a rehab for the mental or get her a child therapist ”

I was astonished by hearing that. My own parents want to send me to a rehab. I started to panic and I got scared. I was trembling in terror and fear. Zolenes Glass bowl fell from my hand and broke into pieces. My parents and grandpa were alarmed. They asked me what I was doing there but, I had no breath left to answer.
