thrown onto the ground as Leo reared just a few metres away from her injured body, she screamed in agony as a large gash on her leg throbbed with blood.
Alyssa could see Lucinda running towards her, shouting her name and quickly grabbing her phone from her back pocket, she pushes her head back into the ground and grits her teeth as shoots of pain rush through her body, then out of the corner of her eye, Jon grabs Leo, doing up his stirrups.
Richie runs towards her as well as she tries to stand up, she falls back down as streams of puss and blood flow out of her leg.
"Am I dead?" was her only thoughts as Lucinda frantically tried to call the emergency services, the ground was rock hard and she fell on a rather stony path that was now red. Her blood.
Richie could hear the faint cries of a siren and ran towards Alyssa, she was crying out in pure pain and there was nothing that he could do about it. Though, a couple of minutes later a ambulance arrived, paramedics gotten out and put Alyssa on a stretcher as Richie held the two horses, they put her in the ambulance as Jon gotten in with her. Lucinda had to take the horses back with her.
"Come on Leo, lets go home, Richie, drive the truck, follow the road, it's on the right hand side"
She got on Blu, grabbing her reins, taking Leo's as well as she started to walk towards home, Richie slowly followed in the F150, he could see that her eyes were puffy, she sniffled from time-to-time, though he could see she was worried. For Alyssa's sake.
He mumbled a prayer that she would be alright, though he was dreading the news that she would have to have surgery or something. All he could think about was her.
Jon sat in the ambulance as they sped along the highway towards the over-flowing hospital, the paramedics cut away her jodhpurs (they ride English), she was exhausted and just wanted this ride from hell to stop. Jon braced her hand as they performed various checks on her, wrapping a bandage around her gash.
Soon, they arrived at the hospital, doctors and nurses were there waiting patiently, she was taken out of the ambulance as Jon came out with her. He walked along the corridor along to the ward, ready for the doctors to assess her injuries and damage.
The world went black as she closed her eyes, she was taken to Intensive Care as Jon was taken to the waiting room.
Richie finally came toward the riding school at last, Lydia jumped off Blu, doing up her stirrups as she walked along the drive, a horse in each hand. Richie sighed, was this his fault?
He pulled up on the cobblestone yard, getting out with his head hung a little lower than usual, he could only blame himself and felt immensely guilty.
"Come on Rich, you can come and tack off Blu's tack for me, I'll do Leo"
He walked along, took Blu and lead him into the stable, undoing his girth and taking it off his back, he tried to smile as Blu neighed and flung water at his face, Blu continued to gulp down the water as he was very thirsty. He put the saddle on the door, he undone the throat lash, nose band and slipped the bridle over his head. He flung the bridle on his shoulder, picking up the saddle and walked over to the tack room.
He put the bridle onto Blu's hook and placed his saddle on top on a saddle rack. Still, he was still thinking about Alyssa, he just hoped Jon would bother phoning him sometime soon, he was getting impatient. Lucinda sighed, Lyss was her BEST friend, riding buddy and they could joke around the yard as they swept up loose straw. No, she needed to think positively.
