Months passed and the foals learned to fly and talk. But little did they know that in less than a month their happiness would end.
"Mama mama!" Starleaf called. He was hungry and wanted his dam. She could always find the best grazing spots.
Morningleaf walked over to her son and nuzzled him. "Follow me dear lets get some food." She said gently and leading him to a patch of clover.
Star whinnied gently as he walked with Morningstar. "Want to try a jet stream?"
Morningstar shook her head. "No papa I don't want to. Not yet. I am hungry can we eat now?" She asked lowering her head. She gently ripped up some of the grass and her eyes glowed bright golden.
Star winced when her eyes flashed. He wondered if some of his starfire was still in his blood and if he had passed some through his blood to her. He started to eat the sweet grass.
Soon they were done and they needed some water. "Morningstar can you scout out water for us?" Star asked.
After 15 minutes Morningstar found a small creek. She and Star took deep long drinks. Then they started home. Out of no where came a roar and then Star shouted. "Morningstar run home now! Get Brackentail!" He turned just in time for the tiger to spring onto his back.
"PAPA!" Morningstar shrieked as he buckled trying to get the cat off his back.
"Go Morningstar!" He called.
Morningstar turned and ran. But she never made it to her herd. Soon the cat left and her sire was left in shreds. "Papa!" She sobbed as she ran to his side.
Star groaned. "I love you my dear Morningstar!" His heart beat slowed down. Soon his eyes closed for the last time.
"PAPA!" She screamed at the top of her lungs.
Morningleaf came to look for Star and Morningstar but when she found her daughter she let out a cry when at her daughter's side was Star's still body. "Star! No!" She knelt at his side sobbing.
Starleaf cried. "Mama what happened?!" He begged nosing her.
"Papa is dead." Morningstar said her heart numb.
2 days later they rejoined the herd. They had buried Star on the first day.
Brackentail was crying. Flamesky stood haunted eyed. Shadepebble was leaning on Clawthorn sobbing loudly.
Morningleaf's face was like stone. The tears she had shed in those 2 days where gone. Starleaf whimpered. "Mama what's wrong?"
Morningleaf shushed him. "Dont worry everything is ok."
Morningstar shook her head. "Nothing is ok!" She jumped into the sky and flew away
