Bucephalus wasn't in the mood to wait for the flirting to be over. The second he spotted Abigail in the stables, his huffing grew louder. [b "Better see to him before he breaks the door again,"] Henry stepped back to get back to work.
Henry waited until Pops was out of sight before dropping his handful of straw. [b "Good morning,"] he tilted her chin up a bit to kiss her. [b "Your horse is a menace and has already had twice his normal breakfast. I left the wheelbarrow in front of his stall and he got a hold of the goods."]

He was a little late waking up the next morning, but the scolding he got from the hungry horses was well worth it. [b "You don't have to be so grabby,"] he booped Mowgli on the nose while distributing breakfast in the pasture.
