Stormtail looked down at her. "Your brother is a dud, and as such is useless. In addition, he is weak and seems to be unable to kill. He only eats dead grass for goodness sake." Stormtail's black eyes glittered. "I want you to stay away from him."
Riversun was galloping across the grass. Memory after memory was raging through her. Her gut seemed to be burning. She knew why. It was her first birthday.
And then her gut seemed to fill with embers of starfire, and she let a huge burst of gold starfire into the air. But then a burst of silver followed. Riversun didn't care. She turned around and started to run back to Petal Herd.
Riversun reared. Windstorm screamed. "Stop! Stop!" he pleaded. Riversun couldn't help it. Silver starfire escaped amd touched him. He was burned.
Shadowblaze raced into the clearing, followed by Amberstone. "Riversun!" he cried. "Stop!"
Riversun turned. "I can't!" She flung her head around and sent a burst of starfire in his direction. "Shadowblaze!" Her heart thudded a tempo of fright. "Stop me! I can't take control of my emotions and starfire!"
Shadowblaze sent a burst of gold starfire to block the silver. There was a burst of bright light. Riversun tried to stop her starfire, but it couldn't be quenched. Riversun fled.
