I was sitting with my friend, Pistol on one of the bucking shoots watching the barrel race.
Two more events before bull riding. I thought.
I was itching to get a shot at "Dooms Day" he was the rankest bull in the pen. Pistol had rode him a few weeks ago for 89 points. At most rodeos the barrel race was right before bull riding.Here it's in between calf roping and saddle bronc riding.
The announcer called barrel racer after barrel racer......Pistol elbowed me in the side and looked over at a barrel racer waiting outside the arena. She was gorgeous, she was tall around 5"10. Her light brown hair came half way down her back in lively waves. She had blue eyes that were absolutely stunning, ...view middle of the document...
He dated the poor girl for a month and then he moved on. Guys like him are the reason bull riders get stereotyped.
After the barrel racing awards were over, I walked to turn in some paperwork at the check-in desk. The check-in desk is located on the backside of the concession stands. I walked around the corner and someone ran into me knocking the papers from my hands.Whoever I ran into fell on the ground. I looked down to see Aurora looking up at me......Oh $h!t.
She's even more beautiful in person, I said to myself, momentarily forgetting I knocked her to the ground. I'm usually fluent in the language of girls so to speak but now....nothing. Say something, Issac. I thought to myself. Before I could say anything she spoke....
"I'm so sorry....... I wasn't watching were I watching where I was going." she said dropping her gaze. She quickly began picking up the papers scattered on the ground.
I laughed softly as I helped her pick up the remaining papers up off the ground , " It's okay, it wasn't your fault."
There was a silence and I didn't want want to make her feel uncomfortable.
"Your Aurora Lamar, right?" I said to spark a conversation.
"Yeah, I am." She said while dusting herself off.
"You were awesome out there." I told her to keep the conversation going.
"Thanks, Are you competing?" She asked.
" Yeah, I'm bull riding....My names Isaac by the way."I smiled.
"Would you like to get something to drink with me."I added looking into her blue eyes.
She nodded her head and we walked together to the concession stands. We talked for over an hour and then I looked up at the clock, Oh shoot....I have to get these papers turned in!
I sighed and said, "It's almost time for bull riding, so I really need to go get these papers taken care of. Then, go get warmed up."
" Yeah, I should probably hit the road."She nodded and started to walk away.
I took a hold of her hand before she could get far.
"Ain't you going to stay to watch me ride?"I asked, letting go of her hand and looking hopeful,
" I really need to get going." She replied sadly smiling.
I shook my head understandingly. Then, she turned and walked away. I watched her make her way to her truck & trailer.
Maybe I should have stopped her again and asked her which rodeo was she headed to next. I really didn't want to sound like a stalker. Which I would've sound like if I asked her, considering we just met. I watched as she drove down through the rodeo grounds
I drove out of the rodeo grounds...
