I didn’t know what to do, what to think, other than the fact that I apparently had screwed up the best thing I’d ever had happen in my life. With a heavy heart and tears streaming down my cheeks I slid out of the saddle and crumbled against the trunk of a tree. I buried my head in my arms and cried.
