    Hardy 3

    I strode into out backyard. We had another sliding glass door that led to our patio. An glass umbrella table sat on the cement with six metal chairs. And we have a stream in our backyard. I stepped out onto what I called the dam. Two one foot wide walkways led out almost halfway to the water, one on each side. There was a small break, where water fell five feet onto the other side of the stream. The thing was, leaves like to catch against the sides of the walkways. This used to be Penny's job, but she fell in too many times, even though the water is barely one foot high. I grabbed the green rake and started pushing rotten leaves and gunk out toward the flowing water. When that was finished, I walked back to the house and into the garage. I grabbed my purple mountain bike and started pedaling down toward Okery Stables. The road was made of sand and pebbles. This was my last chore, and I liked it the most. I had to go take care of our two horses, Sydney and her baby, Cayla. I am not good with horse breeds, so I will just describe them. Sydney has a reddish pelt and dark brown hair. Cayla is tan with black hair. The nose is dark and her feet are too. I rounded on a long pebble driveway. A metal gate had been permanently opened and I continued up the long driveway. I could see a dark barn rise ahead made of dark brown wood. We didn't have the land to care for our horses, so we rented to spots in the Okery Barns. I parked my bike and walked into the dimly lit stable. All it had were two hanging light bulbs to light the way. I heard whinying and turned to one of the larger stables. "Hey Sydney! Cayla," I smiled. They stared at me with their glittering black eyes. I scooped the old hay out and added some fresh. Then I added some food and water to the troughs. "Shhh," I put my finger to my mouth and reached into a nearby barrel. Pulling my hand back, I revealed four sugar cubes. The two horses immediately started toward me. Sydney pushed her nose into me until I gave her and Cayla the sugar cubes. I quickly brushed the dust off of their pelt, patted their sides, and biked back toward my house. "Get dressed before we go down to County creek," mom told me. She was unloading the dishwasher. She had changed into a puff sleeved light pink blouse will frills on the front and a black skirt. County creek was where we had our parties. I started up the stairs. Penny was vaccuming the living room. Dad was upstairs in his room, probably at his desk sorting through papers. I turned left and into the first room, my bedroom. The walls were beige except for the one wall that my parents had let me paint on. I had painted a rainbow snake like the aboriginees, a symbol for rain. I had also painted an orange kangaroo, a koala on a green tree, and the east australian current was light blue in the corner, with little green turtles in it. What, I liked Finding Nemo. I was planning on going to see it in 3D when it came out later this year. In the corner of the room, there was a one bunk bunk bed on a mat of rug covered floor. A soft pink fleece blanket was drawn across the space under the bed. It was my secret space. Underneath was a white desk with a light green bean bag chair for the seat. I had my laptop on the desk.

    A Great Read

    This book was so good i read it in one day but of cousre i didnt go to sleep. Sassy is a women who is looking for the kind of romance that she writes about in her books and when she finds the perfect man theres another side to him but not really i dont know how to explain it without giving away the entire book. All i can really tell you is that if you like a murder mystery with a bit of romance and a really big twist that there is no way you can guess it kind of book then i promise you that you wont be disappointed with SASSY and dont borrow it from a friend this is a buy it yourself book for sure.
