Welcome back! I am always open to feedback and drawings (which can be put in the post “Morningleaf’s Filly: Fan Art”)! I would be really grateful if you used your time to make me a picture of Morningmist and/or her friends. You can even use Doll Divine. In this chapter I have a drawing that @Stormfrost sent me. Please enjoy!
Morningmist slowly opened her eyes. She was in a giant cave. Suddenly remembering the events of last night, Morningmist looked around the cave for her friends.
Starfrost was waking up beside her, but Riversun was not where to be found. A few guards were at the front of the cave.
“Are you alright?” Starfrost asked Morningmist. She peered at her back and nodded. The wound had stopped bleeding.
“Any idea of where we are?” Morningmist neighed and continued to look around the cave. There was no other exit in sight. Starfrost shook his head.
Starfrost was pretty badly battered. His ear was torn, there were bruises all over his body, and a particularly nasty looking bite on his rear leg.
“We might as well wait for Pebblewind to come here.” Starfrost nickered and sat down.
After a few rounds of prodding the cave walls and looking for an exit, Morningmist crept over to Starfrost and sat down as well.
Pebblewind laughed. His plan had succeeded. Riversun was in his hooves now and she would never escape. By threatening Riversun with her friends, he could force her to use the starfire for the things he wanted.
Leadership of the United Herds! No one, not even Icefeather, can stand in his way again!
Riversun coughed and stood up. She was in a ditch. Rocks blocked the exits, and the only way out was up. Her legs wobbled as she looked up at the tiny dot of sky far above her.
Riversun stretched out her wings and noticed something was off. Her flight feathers were missing!
She tried to take off without them, but only succeeded in earning more bruises. Riversun sat down and tried to think of other ways to get out.
Riversun tried blasting starfire at the rocks, but only managed to make a dent. She was just to tired.
After some time, a few of the steeds that had captured her, flew down and picked up her wings. Riversun tried to blast starfire at them, but the steeds dodged and pummeled her with their hooves.
This went on for a while until Riversun finally gave in and let them carry her away...
The steeds that had been guarding Morningmist and Starfrost brought the pair to a clearing with little struggles. Morningmist noticed that Starfrost had been limping even though he tried to hide it.
Riversun was in the clearing as well, and looked exhausted as she was brought up to Pebblewind. It seemed like Riversun could not even stand! Pebblewind addressed the trio.
“The tables have turned! I am now in charge, and Riversun, if you do not follow our instructions, these two,” Pebblewind pointed at Morningmist and Starfrost, “will die!” Riversun glared at Pebblewind.
“And kill innocent pegasi! Never!” Riversun growled. Pebblewind looked surprised.
“You would really let me kill your friends?” Pebblewind neighed. Morningmist and Starfrost shared a worried glance.
“No!” Riversun neighed and blasted starfire at Pebblewind’s wings. The wings burned and Pebblewind screamed in anger.
“Kill them all!” He screamed.
“Fly!” Riversun yelled as she blasted the guard’s wings with starfire. Morningmist and Starfrost took to the sky and flew.
“Riversun!” Morningmist neighed and looked at her friend.
“I can’t join you! They pulled my flight feathers out!” Riversun yelled back as more steeds advanced.
“Come on!” Starfrost neighed. Morningmist followed him but took one last look at Riversun.
“I will catch up!” Riversun whinnied. With much regret, Morningmist and Starfrost flew away into the sky...
