Alongside Keola’s strange behavior, Jolene started to suffer from severe back pain. She was 25 weeks pregnant and there was still a long way to go before giving birth. The pain was so bad she was having a hard time walking. As there was an unborn baby to consider, Rick didn’t think twice and rushed Jolene to the nearest hospital.
Never in his wildest dreams could he imagine that a trip to the hospital would end up in a police station with outrageous outcomes. Let’s go back to the beginning to better understand how a hospital visit turned into a criminal investigation.
Everything by Nature
Unlike humans, who can very often be unpredictable, in the animal kingdom, if there is no pain or nothing abnormal, an animal usually doesn't behave in a very different way. Jolene was familiar with her horse as she had had her for several years now, however, she couldn't understand what was going on.
What was making Keola behave the way she did? Determined to unlock the mystery, Jolene embarked on a journey of discovery, determined to restore Keola's inner peace and restore their unbreakable bond. Both lives were about to change and never be what they were used to.
Was It Horse Jealousy?
At first, Jolene thought Keola was just reacting to her pregnancy as she could feel the fetus inside her and was able to feel the heartbeats and the movement of the fetus, but it wasn't that. There was more to it, and it wouldn't leave Jolene in peace. Keola was rubbing herself against Jolene, which wasn't pleasant.
Being so connected to her horse, Jolene knew something had to be done. It was too tense to ignore and it was too worrying to be oblivious to. Jolene began to pray, knowing that God would guide her and the mystery would soon be solved.
How Did It All Begin?
Jolene and Rick were dating since they were 16 years old. After living together for a few years, they bought a horse together. This horse became their pet, and they both loved her dearly. Like all relationships, Jolene and Rick had their ups and downs, however, there was something bothering Jolene that wouldn't leave her at ease. What started off as a small matter very soon turned into a big deal.
Even though Jolene and Rick had been together for many years, and practically grew up together, Rick was very secretive about his past. Jolene knew nothing about his life before she came into the picture and if he did mention anything about his pre-Jolene life, he was very vague about it. She didn't like the fact that there was something about Rick's life she wasn't aware of and it was troubling her. What dark episode could Rick be hiding from her?
A Hard Nut to Crack
On many occasions Jolene tried to fish out some information, however, Rick always seemed to find a way out of detailing his past. He was so closed within himself as if h had a brick wall within him, separating him, from the rest of the world.
He just kept on saying that he had no close family and it was too hurtful for him to open up. Rick's life seemed to be a hard nut to crack open, and this was, apparently, something Jolene would have to learn to live with. Rick had no intention to dig into the past, and whatever it was, he wanted to leave it all behind.
