Stormwhisper whipped around at the sound. Her ears were perked up, fearful about what was going to happen to her. She flared her wings, and slowly backed up. Her tear stained face showed she was ready to defend her herd with her life. The slow clomping of hooves got louder every second.
Terrified, she saw purple feathers poke through the bushes. Stormwhisper froze where she was, her back legs at the water's edge. Then, before she could say anything, an auburn horse emerged from the bush. It was Fernpuddle!
The colt rushed over to Stormwhisper. He pushed his face into her shoulder. Stormwhisper looked at her brother. He seemed terrified of something. “Wh-what’s wrong Fernpuddle?” The weanling said, looking at her brother whose face was still buried in her shoulder.
“I-I messed up…” He stuttered. Fernpuddle looked up at his sister's stain covered face. “I messed up bad…” The colt pushed his face back into her shoulder. His hooves dug into the damp floor, wet from the rain of the previous evening.
Stormwhisper looked at her miserable twin, pushing his face into her now damp shoulder. Her eyes softened as he began to pull away. Her shoulder’s fur now matted down. “Fernpuddle, just tell me what it is.” It had to be bad, he did go where there were rumored wolves.
He lowered his head nervously, scared of what his sister would think. Fernpuddle’s eyes pleading for mercy, even though he hadn’t said a word yet. “Y-you’re not going to be mad, are you…?” His hooves were digging into a small clump of grass, which still had water beadlets on it.
“Whatever it is, it surely isn’t that bad.” Stormwhisper said, fibbing. Fernpuddle had gotten into some mischief before, so he probably had gotten in trouble again. Her auburn main curled up with the humidity of the pond. Maybe he will open up if he’s more comfortable… She thought tenderly.
She nodded for him to come sit down at the pond. The water lapped at their hooves. After a moment of silence Fernpuddle finally spoke, but it wasn’t to Stormwhisper. “You can come out now…”
