Character Encounter: Teresa, Theo

Sidewalking, There is no job quite like it. Some of the volunteers consider it boring since all you do is lay and arm over the riders leg and walk beside the horse. True it can be dull, But to me it is thrilling. Why? Because, well how can I put it. Information. I love to learn. The blessings of knowing that without what I am doing the class can't happen. Seeing the smile on the student's faces as they accomplish the two-point, winged victory, and so much more.

I help dismount the rider, dress the stirrups, then after the horse is out of the arena I untack him and put the tack away.

Rounding the corner I come across one of the instructors giving a tour... And I know the people. I feel my cheeks turning hot as the young man smiles at me. His sister catches sight and begins laughing behind her hand.

"Well Hello Theo." I stutter.

He makes a low bow scooping up my hand and lays a soft kiss on the back. "Hello m'lady. How are you?"

"Fine, what a..." I couldn't think for a moment. "Theo, I had no idea you were in town."

"Figured I'd surprise you."

I prayed inwardly that I would not be asked later if he was my boyfriend. For in fact he wasn't just a.... friend.

"So what brings you to these parts." I stuttered.


"Theo!" A brown haired girl about my age exclaimed.

"I had better get back to work." I stuttered. "Good seeing you."

With that I made a hasty retreat back into the tack room to find something not out there to do. I made myself look busy situating bridles so they lay correctly then went to find a groom box. I sighed. The horses that were needed for the next lessons were already being groomed.. Looking both ways before exiting I slipped around to the back of the barn to get busy on water. That always needed done.

"Well, We just keep running into each other."

I was not looking forward to lunch time. I stood just staring at Theo who I had practically run over... again! "I am... busy." I stuttered. so not looking forward to lunch. Good thing for the no teasing while on property rule. But that did not stop the questions.

"I can see that." He laughed.

"Theo," I whispered glancing over my shoulder. "you lived four thousand years ago, What are you doing here."

He frowned. "VK. "


Teresa started laughing. "VK, You are far too superstitious."

I sighed. "So what do you think."

"I can see why you prefer being here rather than writing our book."

"Udiah's book" I stated. "And I am only translating."

They laughed. I sighed. "I really do have to get back to work."

With that I made myself a hasty exit. I don't like my imagination to interfere with my work, ever.

 Right foot. I have to put My right foot first, then left hand on the green square... then... OH, Hello! I did not see you there. Please excuse my manners. My name is Udiah, and I am afraid I can't give you my last name, for into your language it is untranslatable.
Anyways, I am a Helicra and I am from Queo... But I am giving you too much information.

What should I talk about... VK says my story but then I don't know if I want to. I would quite like to forget it. You see I was kidnapped and held prisoner, I and many others for some time so I just don't like to think about it.

My land. Who we are. Those are good topics. Well Queo is the sixth planet from the sun. It is slightly larger than your earth and is lush in both plants and animals. Unlike your earth, it never rains. We still have our ice layer around our planet so the air is thicker and richer.

The Helicra are a tribe of people from the north. We are known for our pale skin, hair, and eyes. We are highly traditional, Nobody changes the status quo. And what our fathers did, we do. We still drink, eat, sleep, plant, reap, everything the same way our fathers and mothers did hundreds of years ago.

Yezheal made four tribes. I won't go into the other three but to each tribe he gave a duty. The Helicra was animals, and sickness.

My father is a scientest, he, and many others are working on a project called, 'The Kibble Project' And don't ask. All I know is that they 'are trying to find a way to make kibbles less tasty to puppies.' And they are being super secretive with it. My father RUNS the project and still all I know.

Well that is about sums it up. I have work to get on with. I am about a year behind so I have to go. VK says hello and will return soon... maybe. ;D

Beneath the trees, 
Far from the sky, 
Near the ground, 
Here I lie. 

Hear the song, 
Hear it ring, 
The birds in their chorus, 
While critters do swing. 

Close your eyes,
Listen to it, 
Do you hear it tearing? 
The curtain has ripped. 

Away I do stir,
Far from this place. 
Running and racing,
Them keeping pace. 

Oh! to the river
The forest ablaze!
Into it's depths. 
Away from the haze. 

Up from the currents, 
The fire is done. 
Up to the surface, 
Homeward I run.
