"It's a side-saddle, Anya. Here, I can help you up," he offered, moving around to her horse. "See, you sit on it sideways so that... well. You sit on it sideways."

"It's because you have a skirt, rather than trousers," Jake informed her, absent-mindedly. He was still studying the horse.

"How the hell am I supposed to stay on? Plus, I don't see what a skirt's gotta do with anything..." Maybe she was looking for excuses not to ride, but really, sitting sideways on a horse with your feet just dangling didn't seem very safe.

"You'll be fine," Thackeray reassured her. He bent down and cupped his hands together. "C'mon."

He turned to make sure Anya was handling it alright. Jake still wasn't sure how much he was willing to trust Thackeray with.

Anya looked down at his cupped hands then back up at him, then up at Jake. He seemed to be doing just fine up on his horse. Almost like he was an expert. Anya, on the other hand, was not and probably would not be. Sighing, she reached up and grabbed the sattle, putting her foot in Thackeray's hand. "Why can't I just wear riding trousers?"

"Because--" He brought his hands up, lifting her into the saddle, and remained by the horse in case she needed steadying. "You're a girl, and for this week you are being a proper girl, and that means dresses and sidesaddles."

His arms were cuddled on the horse's neck as he sat on his saddle, watching them. Almost bored.

"That's not a good enough reas-ahh!" She let out a yelp, leaning forward and grabbing on to the horse's neck, but not tightly. She had a feeling that if it was tighter, she wouldn't hurt the beast at all.

"Eating our words, Wilder?" he teased, still lounging on his horse, smiling slightly. She'd said she wasn't afraid, hadn't she?

"Fuck off, Filster!" She had orginally thought that maybe Jake would have chickened out and she wouldn't have to do it. The bastard. Anya sat up slowly, looking down at the ground. "I'm not afraid of heights. I climbed trees taller then your house."

"...and shrieked like a girl when branches cracked under you," he continued, his voice gentle, but his smile sharp.

"I can't wait to see you on Biscuit when she's actually in motion," Thackeray said. Reassured that she wasn't going to fall off, he moved to his own horse and pulled himself into the saddle. "Alright, let's hit it. Just take your reigns like this, Anya --" He demonstrated, tapping them against Spots' shoulder. The horse lurched forward.

"I did not!" She felt the horse shift its weight slightly under her and she quickly grabbed on to the sattle. "Okay... so... I'm not particularly fond of the idea of going faster then I can walk on something more then twice my size..." She grabbed the reigns, and held tightly to them.

He bid his horse forward, sitting up straight. "C'mon, Wilder. You can do it," Jake called, encouragingly. Believe it or not, he didn't want to see her fall and break her neck, funnily enough.

Thackeray circled his horse around, drawing up beside her. "It's easy," he said. He held up the reigns and gave her a bit of a tutorial on how to direct the horse. "Now, get the horse moving before I slap its behind and get it moving for you," he threatened, sticking out his tongue as he led Spots into a trot around her and towards the door.

She breathed in deeply, counted to three, and gave the horse the cue to move forward. With a bit of a lurch, and a bit of a yelp from Anya, the horse moved forward. "Don't go fast, don't go fast," she chanted, mostly to the horse.

"That's it!" he congratulated her, triumphantly. Goading her on was the only way of making her do something.

Thackeray whooped, and then cantered out of the stables into the snow.

Anya gave a small smile at Jake, but it disappeared quickly. She kept her slow pace, not wanting to go faster then a walk.

He lingered with them for a moment, then the urge completely overcame him. And he let the horse go, first into an English trot, then a canter, then a surging gallop. Only once did Jake wonder about what he was doing.

Oh, not fair. Thackeray wanted to go, but he couldn't leave Anya to her own devices. "Showy bastard!" he yelled after Jake, raising a fist and shaking it.

Anya watched Jake with her mouth open slightly. When the hell did he learn how to do that? Unless... Unless one of his dups had learned how somewhere and there for, the original knew how? Now she just felt stupid. Anya wanted to get off the horse and go back to her room and stay there. She was embarrassed and she hated the idea of the two boys seeing it.

He had no such concerns. In fact, he completely forgot he belonged to a party of three.

Eventually, it happened.

It started with a headache. Not just a headache - a migraine.

It almost blinded him.

Tuck slowed under Jake's bidding - a good, well-trained horse - but it was getting worse. Then he nearly jumped off in full-motion. When finally with his feet planted on the ground, he found the ground was too heavy to bear.

He remembered a woman with long blond hair and brown eyes. She was his mother.

No.

He staggered to the left, unseeing, then tripped over a stone and fell into a snowy bush.

Snow. He loved snow. His father took him riding in the snow every Christmas, after all presents were unwrapped. That last Christmas, he'd received a new horse, so the ride had been a test-ride. He'd loved that animal so much. What was its name? Chester.

What was his name?

Why didn't he know?

Thackeray glanced ahead, and his smile dimmed. Eyes widening slightly, he said, eloquently, "Oh, shit." Then, he urged Spots into a gallop and took off for the boy.
