Mossfire tore out of the Trap with more speed than he had ever shown before. It was exhilarating. The wind on his face, and the clouds in his mossy mane. He flew over the trap and Snow Herd territory, with his herdmates trailing behind him, grasping his tail to keep up. He landed in the Vein, calling out to his relatives. A dozen pegasi leaped out of the trees. Some had plants growing instead of a coat, and others had tree branches sticking out of their mane, like antlers. Still more carried wooden legs, and some more had branches curling around themselves. They all saw Mossfire's mossy mane and his wooden wings. They followed him into the air without a word. He looked back, saying to his herdmates, "Isn't this great?" but he didn't see them anywhere. Just then, they passed over Snow Herd territory, and he saw three small figures the colors of his friends cornered by Snow Herd steeds. Mossfire dropped down, leaving his kin to finish the journey alone. "I'm coming!" he called and used his hard wings to knock the warriors back. He took his friends into the sky with him, and this time, they kept pace. The four steeds landed in a clearing, where the other tree-pegasi were grazing. Mossfire looked around him, at the wooden pegasi, at the Snow Herd fillies, and he realized. He had a herd. "We are Forest Herd," he announced, and no one objected.
Aquasun was scared to death. Her parents wanted her to start flight school. She couldn't even see! How did they expect her to FLY? "It'll be alright" Said Lightflame's comforting voice. She nodded and continued on. Their flight instructor was a mare named Shadepebble. Aquasun had heard amazing stories about how she helped Starwing and Morningcloud, she was a legend! "Ok, maybe I'll go to flight school today" Aquasun said. Lightflame already knew and had spoken to Shadepebble before, because his parents were very close friends with Shadepebble. His parents were Starwing and Morningcloud. He chuckled at her comment. "What! I want to meet Shadepebble!" She exclaimed. "Alright, who knows the basics of flying. Raise your wing if you do" Said Shadepebble. Aquasun didn't raise her wing, and she also knew that she was the only one with it down. "What's your name?" Asked Shaepebble's voice. Lightflame nudged her. "She's talking to you" He whispered in her ear. "Oh, my n-name is A-A-Aquasun" She said nervously. She heard a few quiet giggles escaping the other weanling's mouths. "Hey!" She heard Lightflame yell. But still, she heard whispers from them, like "Isn't she that blind filly I've heard about?" Or, "What's wrong with her?" Aquasun lowered her head. "Maybe this wasn't such a good idea" She whispered to Lightflame. After flight lessons she still hadn't learned a thing! She was walking with Lightflame to Feather Lake. Aquasun felt a pain in the back of her head, then she was gone, unconscious. Sorry it was so long. Hope you enjoyed!))
