Morningstar heard their voices first.
"Roll her over please," A brittle old voice said.
Morningstar could not figure out who that was then she realized it was Sweetroot. The mare was getting old.
With a grunt she felt her body rolled over. "There Sweetroot. Are you going to need more sap for her hooves?" The young colt's voice said gently.
"Who could that be?" She wondered.
Then she felt something gently being rubbed into her feathers and suddenly she jolted awake with a cry. "STAR!"
Sweetroot grabbed Morningstar by her wings and gently held her. "Shhh rest now shh!" She murmured.
Morningstar struggled for a moment then sank to the ground. Her last thought was about who that silver pinto was.
Sweetroot looked on at the sleeping filly. "Bumblebreeze can you get Morningleaf and Starleaf tell them she was awake!" Sweetroot whinnied gently to the silver pinto colt, Bumblebreeze.
Bumblebreeze turned and ran to get the mare.
An hour later Morningleaf stood by Morningstar and gently she stroked her mane with her wings. "Wake up Morningstar please wake up!" She murmured.
Morningstar opened her eyes slowly and smiled to see her mother's face. "Mama I am home!" She whinnied gently.
Morningleaf nodded gently. "Yes my girl yes you are!" Her heart leapt that her daughter wanted to be home.
Starleaf was now as tall as his mother was and every bit as handsome. His blue eyes flashed with worry. His pretty white wings were long and he flew higher than any other pegasus in River herd. He stood next to Sweetroot talking with her. "Will Morningstar make it?" He questioned gently
Sweetroot frowned. "I cant promise but it looks like it could happen."
"Thank you!" He whinnied and turned to his sister. "Hello Morningstar! I hope you are doing well." He said trying to be happy.
Morningstar looked at him sharply. "Who are you?!"
Starleaf was hurt that she did not know him. It had only been 12 months he knew her. Maybe because her black coloring was so rare. "I am Starleaf your twin brother. I missed you!" He whinnied gently.
Morningleaf smiled down on her foals. "I missed you Morningstar darling! I missed having all my foals together!"" She hugged them both
