Something lightly touched Starflower's side. She buried her head in her wings, trying to return to her dreams. The thing touched her side again, but this time more urgently.
"Starflower, please get up."
The voice, who ever it was, sounded familiar.
"Starflower, I need to talk to you about something. And nobody should hear us talking about it." The thing touched her side again, but Starflower was already in dream world.
She was racing her sister, Copperwind, and to her surprise, Starflower was actually in the lead. She galloped across the soft grass and whinnied in delight. "I'm winning!"
"Not for long!" Copperwind's voice was small behind her.
Starflower turned her head to look at Copperwind, just to see how far she was in the lead, but when she faced forwards again, the familiar landscape has disappeared. She was falling, over a cliff.
A fierce wind shook her and sent her straight into the cliff side.
She woke up.
"Finally!" Aquastorm cried. "I've been shaking you for a really long time."
"Is there something wrong?" Starflower glanced around worriedly, before staring at her friend. "Should I get help?"
"Nothing's wrong. Well, nothing happening now." Aquastorm gazed into the distance, as if she was seeing a horrible future.
"Storm, you're scaring me. What's going on?"
"Follow me. I need to tell someone. The secret is eating me up."
Starflower jumped to her hooves. "Aquastorm, what are you talking about?"
Aquastorm looked back at her friend. Her amber eyes were round with fear. "Star believes the black foal will be-" She closed her eyes and shuddered.
Starflower rested a wing tip on her friend's shoulder. "It's ok, Storm. It's going to be fine."
"No, it won't be. Star believes that the black foal will become bad. And he has told me about what the silver starfire can do."
Starflower gasped. "You're joking right?"
"I don't know."
