  18. >And now even as you gauge your *competition* you can see that you have them absolutely outclassed.

  41. >Dumb trap horses are so fucking popular nowadays
  42. >Maybe you should have been a trap horse?

  61. >You are a good little mare and you are the best and you will of course be the one Master takes home.
  62. >You feel a shiver crawl over your coat, and you curl up against one of the walls of your cage. It does little to provide you with warmth, but it grounds you
  63. >When you are standing around for too long it feels like a pit is going to open up right behind you at any moment
  64. >and you will helplessly fall backwards into a bottomless pit
  65. >getting some kind of solid purchase for your rest puts your mind at ease

  74. >big fucking extensions have been added over the last couple of decades, extending it's misshapen visage into a hulking mansion
  75. >White plaster pillars lines the front deck
  76. >You scurry inside after a hard day of school
  77. >A few bruises and some homework
  78. >Nothing you can't handle
  79. >The front door is unlocked obviously, and you let yourself into the main foyer
  80. >You can hear mom toiling away in the kitchen far away
  81. >Her echoes are almost undetectable
  82. >But you know she is always very angry around the time you get back from school, so you silently creep from the foyer to the main staircase that leads into the basement.
  83. >You don't turn on the lights since that would alert mom to your presence and you don't want to bother her
  84. >you aren't worth a hassle and having her worry about those bruises
  85. >She would probably just yell at you anyways
  86. >so you do your best and you fade away into the darkness of the basement
  87. >You know your steps well and even in complete darkness you are able to find your way back to your safe little heaven
  88. >A crawl space on the second basement of what used to be a food pantry half a century ago, back when this was an actual farmhouse.
