"Hey Ciara, can you and Maya go and meet the new staff member, he's bringing his horse in today and he doesn't know where to put her." Gwen called. "Selena and I are meeting the vet for a pregnancy check on the mares." Ciara sighed and put down the mug she was about to fill, instead pouring her coffee into a thermos. "Yea, sure, just give me a minute to layer up."
Maya was waiting outside the rescue barn after finishing the moring chorses. She accepted a gulp of coffee from Ciara just as a trailer rumbled into the yard, cutting a path through last night's layer of snow. The engine shuddered to a halt and the driver's side door cracked open. Maya could hear hoofbeats stomping an impatient rhythm inside the trailer. She handed the thermos back to Ciara and the two of them stepped up to the open door of the truck while a pair of booted feet stepped out. The door of the truck slammed shut, revealing the face of Talisman Equestrian's newest recruit. "Hey, I'm Wesley Leavitt," the man said, "You must be the welcoming committee." He glanced at Ciara, then Maya, then back at Ciara, a smile turning up the corners of his mouth. Ciara smiled an awkward greeting before wandering towards the trailer window to peer in at its occupant. "Yeah, hi, I'm Maya," Maya said, extending a hand. Wesley's hand clasped hers, but his eyes followed Ciara. He approached the back of the trailer, unslinging a lead rope from his shoulder. "And you are?" "Oh, um, I'm Ciara" she said, stumbling a little over her words. "Nice to meet you" Wesley remarked as he lowered the ramp to the trailer. "I've heard about your Newfoundland Ponies, quite a special breed if you ask me." Ciara felt her cheeks flush nodded, rubbing the back of her neck, "A lot of people say that," she replied, hoping the redness in her cheeks could be mistaken for an effect of the cold, biting air as Wesley disappeared into the trailer. Moments later, he came out leading a gorgeous bay mare who immediately whinnied into the cold winter air. Maya exhaled at the sight of her. She could tell Ciara was impressed as well. "This is Henna. She is a beast, but I love her anyways" Wesley announced, a small laugh shaking his shoulders. "She's something," Ciara remarked, "what breed?" "Anglo Arab. her show name is Bulletproof Heart, you know, the My Chemical Romance song?" Wesley replied, pulling shipping boots off the mare's legs, "I assume you're here to show me where to unleash her?" Maya nodded, "Yep, she has a paddock behind the barn here, last one in the middle row, but if you don't mind, Ciara and I have some work to do."
As the two women trudged back to the barn, Ciara could feel Maya's eyes boring into her. "What?" she demanded. Maya glanced back at Wesley then raised an eyebrow at her friend. "Girl, he's so into you. Like, he literally could not take his damn eyes off of you!" Ciara rolled her eyes. "Ugh, why am I attracted to him? He probably has a girlfriend or something. You know, you can't stay single for long in this world with that kind of face. Although, I'd gladly date his horse if beastiality wasn't a big no no in the world."
OK, I'm sorry that was really long, but whatever, besides I'M SO READY FOR A CIARA/WESLEY ROMANCE YOU DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND. Also, I'm really bad at male sims, but hey, I tried. (I ALSO NEED TO GET SOME GOOD MALE CLOTHING BECAUSE EA CLOTHES ARE SHITE)
ANYWAYS, welcome to Wesley Leavitt and his Anglo Arab mare, Bulletproof Heart (Henna) to the Talisman Team! Wesley is going to help with the Canadians as well as event his own mare and probably help with the resues as well.
