  • As they tacked back up, Lilian thought she heard the knocking stop. They were silent for a few seconds then the knocking started back up. Carla was so relieved when Lilian said they could keep tacking up. Carla tightened the saddle's girth and hopped on ShadowHeart at the same time Lilian crawled on HotPepper. Carla rode ShadowHeart to the back exit and told Lilian that they would have to take a path through the woods. Lilian said they could do anything to not be seen. Then the knocking stopped and they heard RockShadow stumble around near the main entrance. Carla whispered they should leave. Now. They practically flew out the stable and Lilian yelled after about twenty minutes of flat out running, they should stop to let the horses rest. As they slowed down Lilian was all flustered up about Melanie returning to the barn. Carla said that Melanie was most likely seeing if the horses had run off because they hadn't been tied up or in a stall. Lilian threw a fit about Carla sticking up for Melanie, but Carla was just trying to change the negative mood. It didn't work. As they dismounted, Lilian said that they would sow up for the competition and not speak to anyone. Melanie for the most. So they would have to go to Lilians' house for the night. Carla wasn't to happy about that but it was the only chance they had for not being caught. As they rode to Lilian's house Carla was so deep in thought that she didn't hear Lilian's question. "Hello? Are you deaf kid? Answer me!....................... CARLA!". "AHH!". Carla asked what Lilian wanted and Lilian said they would have to take a back path so they wouldn't be seen while they walked through town. Carla questioned why people would be outside at this time of night but then she remembered. Tonight was the mayor's birthday and everyone was supposed to go. Especially if you wanted to race in the competition.
