My definition Of Perfect
Chapter 17; Part two:
I got up from the table, and went straight out
the front door. I sat on the porch trying to comprehend everything.
The guys were still in the shed, so I figured that it would be the
perfect time to go for a walk. Uncle Bill had a lot of farm land,
so I just walked a little path to a meadow. I kicked off my heels,
and walked through the path to the meadow. It was so peaceful.
There were cows and deer all over.
I saw something across the meadow, and
couldn't figure out what it was. I was debating on whether to
go over to it. What if it's a bear? I walk a bit closer to get
a better view to see if I can make out what it is. It's the
most beautiful baby horse I've ever seen. It was white with
brown spots. I don't know if I should approach it or not since
it's a stray. I'm feeling a little risky, but I do it
As I get over to it I try not to startle it, but
it seems fine. I got close enough to pet it, so I did. It was such
a sweet horse. The moment was so serene that it completely made me
so calm. The baby horse loved the attention.
"Where's your mommy?" I whisper to
the horse, petting it softly. I dropped my heels in the meadow
beside me, and gave the horse my full attention. This would be a
moment that I'll never forget. I turned around to see the guys
approaching me. Uncle Bill had a stunned look on his
"Ya know Jess, that
horse has been coming around here for months, but everytime I try
to get her, she would run away." Uncle Bill said as he pet the

"Really? She's so
precious." I replied kissing the horse on the nose genty, and
beautiful." I giggled.
"I'm gonna go grab a
reigns and a saddle so I can put her in my stable." He left
with all the guys, but Austin stayed with me.
"How did you get her to
come up to you?" He wondered.
"I don't really
know, I went up to her, and she just stayed there. It's like
she craved the attention." I said petting her.
"Here we go!" Uncle
Bill closed the stable door with the horse in it.
"What should we name
her? He asked me.
"Dalia because it means
gentle." I responded.
"I like it!" He
I walked over to Austin, and
we went inside. His mom looked at both of us and smiled. I smiled
back, and he looked at us both with a confused
"Girl talk Austin, you
wouldn't get it." She giggled. I laughed a little and
looked down at the floor because I didn't really wanna see the
expression on his face. We all sat down at the table, had lunch,
"So Jess, Austin's
mom was telling me how you guys were really close as kids? She told
me how she thought you guys would fall in love again like you guys
did as kids." Everyone laughed and could feel myself blushing,
and I could see Austin's face turn bright red.
Austin said trying to catch the expression on my
