Crossfire was forced to leave Moon Herd territory. Once he arrived back home he was confused at what everyone was staring at. He shoved through the crowd and saw Brightriver! She was covered in blood, bruises, and several huge bloody gashes. Chunks of her mane and tail had been pulled out. Her flight feathers were also missing. He galloped up to her and whispered, "What happened to you!?!" She scowled at him and quickly limped away. Crossfire's father walked toward him with a smug expression. "Son, we can now win the war!" Crossfire hated this idea, He shook his head and said "But at what cost?" He angrily walked away.
Sorry it was so short.
