The Girl Calm and Fair

My name is John; I was once just a simple guy who lived in a small city. There wasn't much to do around there so no one could ever get into anything good or bad. I guess I was ordinary; as was my friends and girlfriend. Yet there this one girl I once knew. She was fair and beautiful, yet she always seemed distance and tired. I never knew why she was such a way, but I fancied her in a way. I never told my girlfriend this, but I was pretty sure she had gotten the clue anyway from things I learned later.

Other than that, this one girl was strange; whilst everything else seemed so normal and ordinary, she stood out. She stayed alone and quite; her only friend seemed to be a horse she owned. It was strange, such a beautiful young woman all alone.

My curiosity with her would continue for a couple of years even as they days passed and nothing changed. Then one day, after I had a fight with my girlfriend, I finally had the nerve to talk to her. So, I gathered myself and went to the Equestrian park where she often went.

I remember calling her name and her turning to me and smiling slightly before asking, "Would you care to ride him?" she asked me.

She was so open to talking to me so soon. Perhaps she had seen me watching her for we ended up carrying on a conversation as it was not the first time we had talked. We ended up talking for hours; she was unique just as I thought. She seemed kind and so caring. Then came time for me to leave and the calmness from her presence changed.

Instead of saying goodbye she looked at me, laughed, and said, "She is a poison." And just like that she left with her horse, to return him to his stall; and that was that.

It was bizarre; I never would have expected such a dark turn to the conversation, but never did I really know just how true those words she spoke were. Later that night, once I returned home, I was hoping to resolve the fight with my girlfriend but instead… I caught her in the arms of another man.

How did she know? How did the woman who never spoke with anyone and hardly wandered far from the Equestrian Center know such a thing was going on?

My girlfriend and I broke up that very night not to anyone's surprise. It seemed that change had begun for me…but apparently, changed had already been festering everywhere…

abstractact09: Like all of this author's stories, the plot and characters are always surprising you. I have never been interested in reading a story about mermaids, but I love this story and the world the author has created.

Pille: I was enchanted by the characters from the beginning and they have gotten even more interesting as the story goes on. I found the plot onteresting and I can't wait to read more.

Bensarchive: The female character is a hot damn strong! I love it when female rules the story. I mean , instead of being a burden, Antiope became the spine of the pack. I love it! Million thumbs up.

SaraJoey Djojohadikusumo: Probably the best written story I have read so far on Inkitt and I have read a few. It isn’t overly dramatic (except maybe the guy is way too open emotionally), and is well written. Can imagine this being expanded into a real published paperback novel.
