*Finally to install, Irma settled on his bed by bandaging in his native country.
( Irma): I cannot sleep, I always think in the warm hills of my native country, everything is so different here. " I was so happy, I took care of the herd of dad with my faithful friend, Bashram. "
( Irma): oh not! They take themselves in our cows, it is necessary to save itself Bashram. ( Irma): Bashram attention!!!!!! BAM! Bashram? Oh not! You died, and without the herd, we lost everything that we had. That are going to become us?
( Irma).. In his room.. And now we are here, which strange country. We are safe, it is true but everything is so different here. And Bashram misses me so much.

But we have the central heating and the microwaves at our home ! That she funny idea! ( Irma): and this fence, I suppose that she is there to take away the predators? ( Atreyou): no, here we have no predators Irma. Fences serve, today, to prevent the horses from going away from the domain, not to lose them. ( Irma):... (In his its thoughts)... He is going to need that I learn a heap of things on these strange customs. But I do not want to give up before having understood everything!
( Irma): what she carries this girl? ( Kasandra): you do not know that it is? It is one saddle, that serves to sit down on the back of the horse and we rise on the horse by means of stirrups.

( Manga Sir): which magnificent show you offered us, but I have to say to you one of our rules : in the future, when you will take up a horse, do not forget to carry a bomb. ( Irma): a bomb ? About what speak you? What that still? *The day was testing for Irma. All his new things, all his customs. She had learnt many thing today with the club, but Irma was always homesick...
( Bashram): Irma, Irma, wakes you, it is me! ( Irma): Bashram? Oh Bashram, me took you return I to the country! ( Bashram): it is impossible.

( Bashram) I cannot and you know it. But I shall return when it will be necessary! ( Irma):... (Waking up sweaty)... Do I have to dream or Bashram was really here? Everything seemed to me so real...
( Irma): I have fast learnt to rise to bicycle, it looks like they rise all to bicycle here. Hey, what this cloud of dust? It is a black horse, what he makes here? He is to have been carried away?

*About time later, Atreyou arrives together with two other riders, Kasandra and Delancey.
( Irma): am not afraid my big. They are there to help you. Be cooperative and everything will be well. ( Atreyou): that seems to me serious the girls? It looks like it was time that we arrive, let us see if we can set right again him. ( Atreyou): my daughter go, recovers you! It is for your own good. ( Irma): she seems to understand.

( Irma): here we are again my big. Only this time, it belongs to you to make. We are on the way. I am sure that you know exactly or we go. It belongs to you to play. I feel that you understand him. ( I believe that I what includes what she wants. She wants returned where from she comes and to show me something. What is it? This light cannot be its destination ,that comes furthermore far.) Hey! What do you make now? You have failed me thrown ! There should be something who very frightens you behind these trees. Do not move, I go to see by paying attention. ( It is necessary to admit that it is strange, a truck in the middle of the road But it is not a reason to frighten a horse.)
(Marcel): we should never have taken this truck of the Eastern Europe. He is going to take days before we found rooms. ( Angelo): no problem, the marcellaio will have its command a few days later than planned. Our load is not perishable. ( Irma)... (In a low voice)... What Macellaio ? I am going to ask Bashram. But I have to disappear before they discover me now. *Of return in the domain..
( Irma): I hoped that your secret would be revealed this night but the mystery remains whole. I hope that Bashram is going to find a solution.
*As planned, Irma spent at night in the center. And the good on, Bashram came to see her friend.
( Irma): but what Macellaio ? And why she is afraid of it? ( Bashram): he wants to say "Butcher" in Italian. I you advice to take the mare at dawn and to let it lead you or she wants. You will see what is going to take place.
*Of the very good hour in the morning, Irma approaches of boxing of the black mare.
( (Irma): of calm down my beautiful, of the peace. You feels that something is going to take place, right ? Calm down! we should not discover us. ( Atreyou): Irma or you go like that? Return immediately, it is an order! ( Irma) Even if I wanted him, I could not. It is already rather difficult like that to stay on the back. I cannot stop any more. You takes exactly the same path as yesterday evening, I am on that you know exactly or we go. Here are trees. I wonder if the truck is always there. And what is going to make the black mare? Thin, he is not any more there, it is exciting but at the same time, it is sinister. That are going to find us in front of us? Or she's take me? One see nothing more. Oh my Bashram, child of the savanna, I hope that you can always see me in the forest. It is there that you wanted to show me? It is sinister here. I believe to hear a horse to neigh in the hut. What there is inside? What she wants to show me? Hey, it is dark there inside. Do I dare to enter? One needs. I owe him to Bashram and to this mysterious black mare. Oh not, I can't believe my eyes! How is it possible? It is horrible! Poor animals! How can we be so cruel to neglect you so? That has to make days when you have neither food nor water! Then here is the secret of the black filly. She brought me here to save his friends.
VROOOOOOMMMM! ( Irma): I have promised to make everything that I could to help you to go out from here. But what that? We would say a truck. Oof.... It is the truck of which this mare was so afraid. I have to hide. (Marcel): well our mare returned. I suppose that she could not take place of us. ( Angelo): she arrives just in time for the expensive transport the butcher! ( Irma): I understands everything, now. It is about an east illegal transport towards Italy. (Marcel): you go, shake one can! Forward! ( Angelo): earlier we shall have left and better that will be worth ! ( Irma): what I can make? Ah yes, I have a mobile on me! I am going to send a message to my parents they will inform the police and king Manga and Atreyou. (Isis): Hiiiiii! ( Irma): he my to ask not to leave her(it) alone! But what I can make against two sturdy men as them? Where are you Bashram? You cannot give me a piece of advice? ( Bashram): do not worry, everything goes well end! ( Irma): I hope that you are right friends moment, I do not see how!
(Marcel): shoot! This damned engine does not start! ( Angelo): I had said to you, we should never have taken this old banger! ( Irma): it's now or never. I should not make of stupid things now! Help I Bashram! Come my friends, go my daughter. I am here for you save! Take out horses! The freedom waits for you! Hurry you! You have understood ! It is good! Move maintaining you, hurry you to save yourselves from here! (Marcel): hey, these nasty horses are saving themselves! ( Angelo): who is thus this nasty kid who conduits? You know her ? ( Irma): we made a success! We made a success! You are free!
*Of domain, the stress and the concern is a master on board.
