An excerpt from Gypsy Magic:
Lost and alone in the woods, I never expected him to find me…
When a twig snapped behind me, I turned but saw nothing. A gust of wind whipped my curls across my face. As I reached up to push them aside, hushed voices whispered in the breeze and I looked up to see hundreds of black birds circling overhead. They cried out, some of them flying into each other.
Panic ripped through me as another stick broke. I scanned the surrounding woods, but all I could see was white. The birds’ squawking grew louder, sounding like they were closing in on me. When I shifted my gaze up to them, they scattered as if threatened.
Quiet followed, but only for a moment before the sound of galloping hooves erupted in the distance. The thundering grew louder, coming closer as the land trembled beneath my feet. I couldn’t tell if it was one horse or several. All I knew was that it or they were closing in on me, roaring behind me like a freight train about to hit.
Then the pounding stopped. Silence surrounded me, and I swallowed nervously, not trusting it. Holding my breath, I spun around to come face to face with the muzzle of a black horse less than an inch away. Nostrils flaring, its breath blew against my cheek.
I stood still, paralyzed as my fear of horses returned with a vengeance. I had nowhere to go. I was at the mercy of this beast. Closing my eyes, I did the only thing I could think of. I prayed.
