Mortality #2: Chase

2 comments

Star and Brackentail cruised over the Blue Mountains in Mountain Herd's old territory. They were both relaxing to the summer breeze and the sun high in the sky, but Star was mostly thinking about Morningleaf and their unspoken feelings yesterday. Little did Star know that Brackentail was also thinking about Morningleaf, with her amber eyes, luxurious aqua wings, her puffy tail, right down to her wide white blaze. Brackentail mostly admired her for her beauty, but very much liked her can do attitude. This contrasted with Star's feeling for he was in love with her courageous personality, even though he still got the wind knocked out of him whenever he saw her beautiful face. As they crested the ridge of the mountains, the canyons came into view and tension locked between them. Brackentail stared down ashamed and afraid to meet Star's eyes, because this is where Brackentail had tried to kill Star when they were weanlings. Star sucked in a breath and broke the silence.

"Look, that wasn't you. That was just some colt who didn't like another colt. It wasn't the loyal friend I am flying with now. You've changed 100%, and for the better." Star smiled at him and dived toward the canyons. When they landed Brackentail tried to speak but stuttered. Instead he just looked at Star with big sad eyes. Star put his wings on Brackentail's shoulders and exchanged breath with him. Brackentail softened and then lightened the mood.

"Tag, you're it!" Brackentail neighed, galloping into the sky.

They chased each other for hours, both happy to be making good memories at this site. Soon after Shadepebble, Clawfire, and a few others came looking for them.

"There you are!" whinnied Shadepebble in relief, "we were getting worried you got hurt or something. Morningleaf got so frantic she made us come looking for you."

"Morningleaf was worried about us?" Brackentail asked referring to him and Star, even though he wanted her to be specifically worried about him, hoping that showed she cared for him.

"Yah, she kept rambling on about how he may have gotten lost or got whipped away by cross winds." Explained Shadepebble pointing at Star. "I told her there was no way that a stallion as mighty as Star could be whipped away but..." she sighed and shrugged her wings.

Brackentail seemed devastated by the fact Morningleaf hadn't mentioned anything about him. Whereas Star seemed glad that Morningleaf was thinking of him.

"What were you guys doing here anyway?" asked Clawfire.

"Playing chase." Brackentail quickly responded still sad.

Shadepebble's body quivered in excitement at the thought of playing with other pegasi. Her father never let her play any rough games because she was his only foal, besides her sister Petalcloud who had left. She wanted to play so bad.

"Can we play? Pleeeeeeeeeeese?" she neighed in excitement.

"Sure!" Star instantly responded.

They chased each other till the sky turned orange, then headed back. Morningleaf welcomed them with lots of questions. Star and Morningleaf snuggled up together with Brackentail close on the other side. This had become their usual sleeping habit. Star's thoughts drifted to the herd counsel. They had chosen him as the leader for the counsel. He was in charge of hosting meetings about predators and threats. His future mate would be in charge of hosting meeting about foals and health. A little like the role of over stallion and lead mare except he had no say in what to do. The counsel would decide that. He was only responsible for setting up scouts and calling meetings. He had to find a mate soon to become counsel mare, and he had one in mind.

  • His mother, Flameblaze, shook her head. Just always, she knew what he was thinking. He had to save them both. Sunray also caught the gleam in his eye and horror flashed in her eyes. Without another thought, he charged the huge cat, rearing up to stomp his hooves down on it, but it swiped at his stomach, causing both mares to flitch at the damage it made. Nightsky ignored the pain and continued to exchange blows until the cat snarled and stalked away, hissing when Flameblaze kicked it for good measure. Sunray and Flameblaze rushed to Nightsky, each worried and startled at the wounds covering him. "Flameblaze? Sunray?" Nightsky wheezed out before choking on his own blood. "We are here, son," Gently, Flameblaze nudged him to let him know she was there. "Did I won?" With glazed eyes, he looked at them both. "You sure did," Sunray moved towards him. "Rest a bit, okay? You're going to be okay." Nightsky is close to death, Sunray is emotionally exhausted, and Flameblaze is a mess. If Sunray and Flameblaze argue on what to do, comment below "Page 3-Time". If Sunray takes charge, comment below "Page 3-In Charge". If Flameblaze takes charge, comment below "Page 3-Follow the Leader".
  • Brackentail never stopped nagging Morningleaf to love him. He tried everything. Walking with her, giving her gifts, and just spending so much time trying to impress her. He never stopped getting ideas to try and make her see his worth. And it was getting on Morningleaf's nerves. This morning, Star had called a counsel meeting and Brackentail had no choice but to attend. They had finished all matters when Sweetroot, the current counsel mare, called Star aside. "Star," she sighed, "I can't keep doing this." "What do you mean?" "I'm too old. I was a leader of River Herd, but that was almost a year ago. YOU need to find yourself a mate. She can take-over my job. I know you've been waiting to find someone perfect, but she's been in front of you this whole time." She said looking at him with her old eyes. She put her wing on his chest, as if she were his Granddam. "You know she is the perfect leader." Star sighed, knowing he should've taken responsibility and not have put pressure on the old mare in the first place. He had a huge decision to make. And little did he know, Brackentail was listening the whole time. It was time for Brackentail to make his move. He knew Morningleaf would never love him as long as Star was around. He needed to find a way to get rid of Star. But how. Star had always been his best-friend. (Besides for their childhood) He couldn't hurt Star. But he could get to Star's 'special someone' before he did. And that was exactly what he'd do. He puffed his chest and walked up to the most beautiful mare he had ever met. "Morningleaf, can I talk to you." (EW. This was : A; horrible B; Short And I think the last time I wrote one of these was like............. Januaray, so uhh yah its been a hot minute. Which is why im so rusty. :l )
  • ThunderFeather glances around her and spots another pegasus sneaking up behind her. “What is your problem, FlameHeart?!” she whinnies exasperatedly. “I am supposed to get you! Your mom ordered me to!” FlameHeart says in his usual high and mighty way. ”Could you maybe be a little less snooty once I a while!” ThunderFeather snaps angrily, “I will go to my mother...without you!” ”Ugh! You are so annoying! Why can’t you just do as I say! My dad is the over stallion! I am the grandfoal of ShadePebble and ClawFire! I deserve respect!” ”Yeah, well try earning it!” ThunderFeather leaps off the ground and flies to the other yearlings. “Where is MorningDew?” She asks.”She is over there with StarFeather,” ShadePepple says. ShadePebble usually stays and watches over the yearlings. ClawFire died 8 years ago defending SunHerd territory from a MountainHerd raid. ”Hello ThunderFeather!” Her father, StarFeather booms. StarFeather is ThunderFeathers uncle and Star’ and MorningLeaf’s second foal, and her mother, MorningDew, is the first. “Hi!” ThunderFeather runs up and nuzzles him, “What happened? You were gone for days!” ”I was on a mission. And practicing with this,” his eyes twinkle and he breathes a small burst of golden fire. All the descendents of Star had one of the powers of the star fire. Her mother could create a shiel, her uncle could breathe healing fire, and her cousin could breathe silver fire. ThunderFeather couldn’t do anything yet. ”Look, I know you will be able to do something,” her mother says. ”I honestly don’t care. The other yearlings make fun of me enough right now, and powers will make it worse.” ThunderFeather says for the thousandth time, mother! ”why? You will be able to stand up for yourself.” StarFeather ask. ”I can stand up for myself perfectly fine right now. I can fight better than any of them.” As she says this, two sparks fall to the ground, one silver, one gold. ”See!” says her uncle, “I knew you could do it!” As he says that, one of the yearlings playing turns aroun, and promptly bursts into flames. ”Well, little foal, I guess it is time to wake up. i will have so much fun. You...might not,” it ends in a cackle, wich turns into the foals dying scream.
