A wish granted
The black horse struts downhill, groomed sleek and with scarlet ribbons plaited through his mane and tail for the festival. Marc, one of the caixers, rides him like a king, tall and stern-faced. His black hair is trimmed short like a warrior, and his eyes are dark and commanding. Every few metres he makes the horse rear and people scurry beneath to touch its heart for good luck.
I watch how Marc controls the horse, and my heart yearns for him.
The horse rises, and I step forward, reaching for the beast’s heart. I touch it! Perhaps my dream will come true!
I sprint down the street to the town square, and greet Marc when he arrives.
“Alejandro!” he says.
“May I squire for you in the jousting tomorrow?”
“I have my brother…” he says, and then smiles. “I’m sure we can find something for you to do!”
