Kall couldn't believe that he was at the end of his time at Blue Ridge. He'd done his last cheer competition and passed on the spirit stick of being captain, and he was so ready to be a part of the Redhawks!
His room was cleared out, and the only things he was bringing with him were the things he needed, and they were all waiting out the front of the barn, beside where all of Jett's gear was waiting, and he was finishing off clearing out the gelding's stall. Sure, he could have left this last little bit for the workers to do, but he had the time, and he wasn't quite ready to say goodbye, not just yet anyway.
Kall was a mixture of emotions, he was thrilled that his moms would soon be here to collect him and his mule-headed Hanoverian, while at the same time, he was sad to be saying bye to all the friends he'd made here, and he couldn't thank Andie enough, as while he had a mother who was a cheerleader, the cheer coach here had pushed him that extra bit harder when he needed it, and for that he would always be thankful.

Sina still had a few days before her mom made it to campus with the trailer, and didn't mind using the extra days to spend time out on the trails of Blue Ridge. She didn't expect much from Vaxi, since her own mind was elsewhere, but the trail rides were doing them well. As she was walking down the aisle to his stall, she spotted Kall cleaning out Jett's stall, and paused, leaning against the open door, trying to find the right words.
Finally, she settled on humor, and spoke up, "You do know they'll have shavings where you're going, right? You don't need to pack those."

Kall had cleared most of the floor, and was working on sweeping what was left to the edges when he heard a familiar voice and he looked from from his task with arched eyebrows. "But Jett might feel homesick, and if I filled my tack-trunk with this, then his new stall will still smell like home." He replied, without missing a beat, and then grinned as he leaned on his broom. "When are you heading home, love?"

Sina chuckled at Kall's response, "And all of your tack would, too!" She was glad to see that Kall apparently wasn't too crunched for time, since he had the time to stop and chat. It was sad to think that this would be the last time for a while that they'd get that chance - Although she hoped that they would keep in touch. "My mom will be here on Wednesday, and we'll probably start the trip back on Thursday." She glanced at the shavings, guessing the answer but asking anyway, "What about you?"

Kall smacked his forehead with his hand. "I knew there was a reason i needed that trunk, I need to put the tack in it!" He sighed as he looked around. "I'm sure I can store the tack somewhere else!"
He nodded as she answered his question. I hope you have a good trip home. Hoping to convince your mom to go on a trail ride with you while you're here? He asked with a grin. He glanced at his watch. "My moms should be here in about half an hour, if they got up and left the hotel they stayed at last night when they said they were going to." He was pleased that he'd asked them both to come to pick him up, when Enya had been sure that Saibh should come alone.

Sina chuckled, "Just toss it onto Jett and ride him back, it'll be fine!" She grinned at the idea of her mom on a trail ride, "We'll see, but probably not. She was just planning on getting to Bowling Green in the afternoon, so there's no point in loading up and leaving for an hour or two of driving. We might walk around the campus or something that evening, but she honestly prefers dogs to horses."
She nodded at Kall's plan, "And then the journey forward begins?" She smiled, forcing away any hint of sadness. Being a cheerleader had its perks, including learning to smile brightly no matter what, "I should stick around and tell them all the things you got up to while you were here."

Kall laughed at the idea of riding Jett home. While it would have been something that Cue would have taken in his stride, he was sure that the spirited Hanoverian he now rode would take it as an insult, ditch his rider at the first option to do so and find himself a home that suited him. "Yeah, I don't see that being an viable option. You have met Jett, right?" He laughed again and shook his head.
He could understand the reason for Sina's mother staying the night, as it was pointless using fuel if you didn't have to. "You never know, she could try and convince Ms Hart into adding dog training to the curriculum." He was sure that some of the dogs-in-training would get a lot out of being on the campus, and they'd get used to working around horses pretty quickly.
His smile vanished as he thought of the future that lay ahead of him, though quickly brought it back. "Onward and upwards." He said with a nod. He drew in a shocked breath at her suggestion and shook his head in horror, before laughing. "I'd love for you to meet the women who raised me. I'm sure there's nothing you could tell them that they haven't already imagined I'd done anyway." No, he was sure that anything Sina could tell them, they had imagined he'd done worse.

Sina laughed, "I have! It'll be quite the adventure, if nothing else."
She grinned at Kall's idea, "That'd be fun, but we're heading back to Cali. Bit far away to give training advice!" Although she was sure the school could find a puppy raising program, if they were so inclined. But it no longer mattered to her as much, since she was leaving the school behind. It wasn't necessarily easy to attend school with a young dog, although at least Der had been fully trained by the time they came to campus.
As he said she was welcome to meet his moms, she smiled, "I would imagine so. Parents, huh?"
