Hi! I am always open for pictures and comments and if I like your photo, it might become my profile picture! I also want to clarify the ages of my characters. Riversun and Starfrost are yearlings and Morningmist is a weanling. Enjoy!
Remembering a story that Morningleaf used to tell her, Morningmist decided to search for an aquifer. The currents were confusing, and Morningmist had to pick one to follow at random.
As Morningmist followed the current, it grew stronger until she didn’t have to swim. Morningmist’s lungs were burning and darkness creeped into the corners of her vision.
Finally, air! Morningmist gulped in the air as she wizzed along. Morningmist looked around. She swam to the shore and realized where she was. Crabwing’s Bay! The aquifer had swept her to Bumblewind’s Memorial!
She gazed at the memorial until the recent events came flooding back to her. Morningleaf was probably captured, and Riversun and Starfrost might be as well. Morningmist felt shame as she realized that she had left them all alone.
Morningmist decided to fly back the way she came.
As she flew closer to Big Sky Lake the signs of a battle became more prominent. Bits of mane here, blood there, and several hoof prints.
Morningmist cautiously flew forward. Suddenly, someone grabbed her. Morningmist turned around and saw Starfrost. He pulled her into a bush.
“What happened?” Morningmist asked. Starfrost’s face grew somber.
“Your mother and Riversun are captured. Riversun pushed me into a bush and I escaped from our attackers.” Starfrost neighed.
Morningmist turned and flew towards the camp.
“Wait up!” Starfrost cried.
Morningmist and Starfrost hid in the hollow in the Grandmother tree and watched the camp. Morningleaf and Riversun were tied against another tree. Morningleaf looked resigned to any fate while Riversun looked angry.
Icefeather walked over with Pebblewind and a few other guards.
“Why did you hide Morningmist’s father from us?” Icefeather asked.
“I did not want Morningmist to be captured and used by you!” Morningleaf responded angrily.
“Where is Star!” Icefeather whinnied.
“I do not know.” Morningleaf said truthfully.
“Liar!!!” Icefeather screamed, “if you do not tell me, we will kill Riversun!”
Morningmist gasped in fear. Morningleaf was telling the truth but Icefeather did not believe her...
