"We knew Elmwing would eventually come here.. we were waiting for him to discover an object.
"We're looking for something to help Anok to." Starfrost pointed out, nudging Lightray so he would take the metallic necklace out. Lightray did so, lifting it high in the air so all could see.
"When you left, Anok became enslaved again. This dapple grey pale-winged stallion found a way to control starfire that isn't his. This stallion found a way to take starfire. This stallion has control over all of us. This stallion is allying with landwalkers and teaching them the super-natural powers of the hundred-year star. This stallion has a whole army of "Kihlari" and landwalkers. This stallion has the world on there knees. This stallion is planning on bringing threats and animals we hardly know about to our land! This can be the end of us. The end of freedom. This golden necklace as hard as it is to believe was made by Elmwing when he used it against my best friend. I know your powers were taken away by Elmwing and his followers but this." Rainfeather took a breath. "This can be a weapon against him."
Star snorted. "That isn't what that's for. That is what we've been looking for. Only Elmwing can produce it; being the only pegasus with starfire until the next hundred years. We've been spying on him, waiting when he would do so when he arrived at Mavelyn. That is what can contain the hundred year star's power. You were right about one thing, it can be used as a weapon, but only if you can reach the Thermosphere. We've been practicing, but the farthest we've gone was just above the jet streams. Morningleaf just about got to the mesosphere." Star scanned the pegasi's builds. Hazelblaze was short and stubby (Mountain Herd). Redwind looked agile, and his coat was seal brown, he had green feathers. Perfect for blending in the lush jungle (Jungle Herd) . Lightray was tall and lean, he had a deep chest perfect for riding jet streams, huge wings and a shining cremello coat (Desert herd). Rainfeather was small, very small, but she held her head high, her eyes feisty. As tiny as the mare was she had a wide deep chest just like her friend Lightray, a smooth thin coat, and also small, but flexible wings, her coloration was odd, but Star guessed she was from Desert herd to.
"One of you will be able to reach heights no one on Anok had reached before. You might be confused, but here's the plan." Star, Morningleaf, Riversun, Flamewind, Brackentail, Moonheart, Rainfeather, Redwind, Lightray and Hazelblaze gathered around to hear better. Rainfeather's heart jumped and she remembered. I'm with the legends of Anok!
