Seeking a Rider

Highly embellished original painting of a white unicorn with gold mane and tail wearing a saddle and bridle.

Story: I'm seeking a rider. Oh, I sound like a personal ad! I don't mean to. But I am looking for someone a bit special. And the saddle and bridle are supposed to send out a message that I'm serious about it. I mean, because sometimes unicorns aren't taken all that seriously. Oh, are you interested? Well, the role isn't for just anyone. Not that you're just anyone. Obviously not. But are you the sort who'd be ready to jump over a star from time to time? You would? Really? And what about hiding behind clouds? How do you feel about that? Okay? Truly okay? I must say that I'm a little surprised. Forgive me, but you do have a charming ordinariness about you. Although perhaps that makes you absolutely perfect! With you as my rider, who'd even suspect the existence of magic in my horn? Why, your mere presence would serve to grant me my freedom! With an ordinary rider, I would surely be taken for an ordinary horse, my horn assumed to be some sort of silly decoration. Never again would I have to remain elusive! I have always wished for liberty, and you, I think, are the key! So, tell me, would you like to join me for a great adventure? I'm trying to ask if you might be seeking a unicorn. Oh, and do you know how to ride?
