Daddy surprised me on my 10th birthday with a beautiful horse and I named her Lucky. She is so sweet and we bonded immediately. After many riding lessons we became inseparable and I knew one day we would be exploring the country together.
My 15th birthday is tomorrow and I asked daddy if we could take Lucky out for a ride, he said yes.
Buzz buzz. I shut off my alarm.
“Dad! Come to my room!”
I heard Daddy’s footsteps and as I looked up to see him all I saw was pitch black.
“What’s wrong Rosie?”
“I don’t know dad. I’m scare. When I looked at my alarm my vision became blurry. Now all I see is black and a bit of light.”
We rushed to the emergency room and the doctor told us I have become partially sighted.
When we arrived home I told Daddy to take a photo of Lucky. I have that photo on my nightstand so I can see her up close and imagine our adventures together.
