Shadepebble sobbed. She leaned against Clawthorn her mate. Their newborn colt, Clawpebble, stood on his spindly legs. They were all saying good bye to Star one last time.
"He really was the best of us." Brackentail let out a low deep sob, he leaned against Flamesky who was sobbing louder.
"He welcomed me when no one else would." Shadepebble said tears streaking her face.
"He forgave us no matter what." Flamesky murmured gently touching her slowly swelling stomach.
"Thank you for saying good bye." Morningleaf said her emotions hidden. Then with a soft commotion Echofrost and Hazelwind stepped to the front of the small circle. With them were 2 small foals.
"Echofrost! Hazelwind! Who are these youngsters?" Morningleaf asked tears in her eyes as she ran to hug her brother. Then she hugged Echofrost.
Hazelwind smiled and hugged her back. Then he pointed to the foals. "This," Pointing to the Buckskin filly, "Is our oldest of the twins her name is Silversong." Pointing to the silver pinto. "This is Bumblebreeze."
Morningleaf smiled. "This is my youngest. Starleaf. My oldest, Morningstar, Has taken Star's death very hard. She is not here right now." She looked down sad. "Dont you live across the dark water?"
Echofrost smiled. "We did but we needed to come home. The herd is now being led by Shysong and Graythorn. They are a good Overstallion and Leadmare. they should have their second foal soon." She spoke cheerfully.
Starleaf spoke up. "Who are you? I am Starleaf and I am a big boy!" He whinnied happily.
Hazelwind smiled. "I am your uncle Hazelwind!"
Then without making a sound a tall pretty pinto stepped toward the front of the crowd. "Hello Morningleaf. I have missed you!"
"DEWBERRY!" Morningleaf shouted and ran to the mare embracing her.
"Morningleaf! How are you? I am so so sorry about Star. He really was the best of us!" She shoved her foals forward. "This is Thornblaze and Windheart. My and Bumbleberry's foals."
