Jennifer wished the answer could be different. “Meagan, there are no such things as Great Horses. I like that you are taking an interest in history, but you can’t believe in fantasies.”
“Mrs. Bridgestone said only true owners will believe the legend,” Meagan replied stubbornly. “You are just proving it.”
“I’m sorry, Meagan.” Jennifer glanced down at picture of chariot race with teams of galloping horses. “Horses can make people act very strangely. Now, will you promise me? No talking with Mrs. Bridgestone.”
Meagan shrugged. “Maybe we should bring Promise back home, just in case.”
“I said okay.”
Jennifer went to the doorway. “Tell the books goodnight, Meagan. Rome wasn’t read in a day.” Jennifer closed the door behind her and returned downstairs. She sat beside her husband on the couch. “I’m worried about Meagan, Tom.”
“Of course you are, Jen. It’s how we know you’re her mother.”
Jennifer shrugged. “She spends all her time reading history books. It’s that silly legend. Meagan is absolutely convinced.”
“Yes, she told me. It sounds like this Bridgestone woman is a bit … should I say it?”
“There is nothing wrong with being a little eccentric, Tom.”
“That wasn’t the word I was going to use.”
