Excerpt

Home By Sunset
By Rie Sheridan

The church bell tolled solemnly, warning the citizenry to hurry behind stout doors and barred windows. A sense of urgency permeated the air as flying hooves beat a tattoo on the hard-packed surface of the lonely road leading into the secluded hamlet.

Home by sunset…must be home by sunset.

"Come on. Come on!" urged the rider, leaning low in the saddle and willing the stallion to go faster. Steel shoes struck sparks from flakes of flint scattered in the roadbed. The sun sank inexorably toward the horizon and the road seemed to stretch on forever.

Home by sunset….

The door of the barn gaped open invitingly as the rider turned into the final length of the journey. "That’s it, Firemane. We’re almost home. Just a little farther." Glancing over one hunched shoulder, the rider saw the disk of the sun was three-quarters below the horizon. "Come on!"

The stallion skittered to a stop inside the safety of the barn, hooves dancing as it came to a halt just as the rim of the sun disk slipped from sight. Sliding from the stallion’s back, the slim rider dashed to bolt the heavy door, and leaned against its shield with a gusty sigh of relief. The rider reached for the bill of a dust-covered cap.
