A Wet Journey

Carefully, the young man climbed onto the big white horse and it took off as fast as lighting. The horse galloped through the green country side until it came to a deep river and stopped suddenly. ”Giddy up!” the man said. The horse attempted to jump across the river bank. Unfortunately, it got stuck in the marshy swamp and the man fell off into the cold water. The horse quickly ran into the fields, leaving the man behind. Shaken, the man swam to safety and sat down to dry  off. He reached inside his jacket and pulled out a tin box with his pipe inside. He thought that he would have a smoke and wait patiently for the horse to come back to him.
