The crowd fell silent, holding their breaths as they came closer to the jump. It was a big, wide triple bar, painted blue and yellow and decorated with birch leaves. Every equipage before them had failed when they had faced it, all of them in a different way. A tense feeling imbued the arena; would they make it? Or would they fail like all the others before them? Nea counted the strides in their head.
“9..” The crowd still silent, still motionless as if frozen in time. One more and they’d take off, taking on the impossible jump.
So this Friday was midsummers eve and we went to my step uncle to celebrate. We ate a really good barbeque dinner and some newly smoked fish (since my step uncle wanted to show off his new smoking locker, or whatever it’s called). I did like my outfit for the day however, I borrowed a flower crown from my sister. According to tradition you’re supposed to make a flower crown out of different flowers and plants but since I possess neither the time, energy or skill to make one I just borrowed one of my sisters plastic ones (it fitted my style better anyways). Also my shoes are awesom, though last time I wore them was at my graduation 4 years ago so to say I’m a but unused to them are somewhat of an understatement.
Yesterday (Sunday) me, my sister and my mum went to the movie theatre to watch Wonder Woman and it was truly an awesome movie and I would love to see it again.
So both Monday and Tuesday I had to walk Reynir instead of going for a ride since one of his shoes were loose. It was quite nice though except for that on Monday we were chased (read followed) by a wasp and on Tuesday we met a thunderstorm and got completely soaked.
And then today my friend came over and dyed my hair. Our goal was Spaceunicorn (so dark blue in the roots and a few centimeters down, pink in the ends and then purple inbetween), however it didn’t turn out exactly how we imagined it so now I’m going to buy some other colours and then in about 2 weeks we’re gonna try again and see if we maybe can get it a bit closer to the desired result. In the mean time this is definitely acceptable and I’m actually liking it more and more.
