That evening mares, warriors, yearlings,stallions elders and leaders, all spoke at once one mare spoke up over all the rest she said
“this journey is across the ocean there is yearlings in our herd we couldn’t do it even if we tried'' it was like my father was waiting for this question because he answered without hesitation
“ we are going to leave here and fly across the ocean. mares and stallions will take head wind and others will drift off.” he continued “but we aren't going to the trap, bad things will happen.”
more chatter “we're we going then” asked a Spiderstorms grandsire.
“The flat lands of Anok'' he told everyone and then left. Icewinds Mother added "we leave in two weeks if we don't leave earlier.” Gasps and chatter broke the silence.
Icewind was unsure she was super happy to try and travel to Anok home of legends but she was scared and sad too because her whole herd her family is just picking up and moving because of one fire that could be a trap.
The Dark herd was once part of Winter herd but then a very young stallion named Fireice was on his way to being over-stallion when the over-stallion at the time went and killed his family. Fireice then murder the over-stallion in his sleep and over one hundred warriors and ran away with his followers to abandoned land just outside of the Spring herd. That is how the Dark herd was formed.
Icewind wasn’t born yet but the elders told her stories about it.
When Icewind went over to the other colts they looked at her as if she killed somebody. “Whats up?” asked Icewind, “what was your father thinking?” asked Grassberry,
who is normally quiet.
“I-I don't know” stumbles Icewind she continues,“I guess you guys aren’t coming”
“my Mother doesn't want us to go” Spiderstorm mumbles,
“so your not coming” Icewind sighs.
“No I was thinking of just coming hopefully she doesn't get too mad” he slips a smile and continues “I would like to go to the flat lands if they even exist but I trust the stories and your father enough to go”
Icewind smiles. Screams and Cries break their silence,
“what is happening here?” booms Hazelwood
“fire” yells peggi that are running from a blackout of smoke.In the distance Icewind could see fire except one was not like any other wildfire she has seen before, it was about fifty wing lengths high and as wide as you could see. Was this the fire Dark herd was talking about?
