Iceclaw sighed as he stood on Ice herd's look out hill. He hated the war that most stallions loved. He saw Riversun playing with their daughter, Nightheart, and smiled. Nightheart was so inocent and un troubled by his own worries.
Nightheart collapsed in a heap on the ground. Worn out but happy.
Riversun lay down next to her and whispered a story of the past to her tired daughter.
Morningstar looked into the distance. "I hope we don't have to fight but we need to began training for battle." She sighed. "Meeting ended." And trotted away to the small pegasus grave yard, she knelt by Star's grave and sobbed till she felt like her heart would break. Then she felt a wing wrap around her and she was being held by her younger brother, Starleaf. "I miss him so.... much!" She sobbed out.
Starleaf held her tightly, he had never been as close to Star. From the day he was born he looked like and acted like his mother, wanting to stay safe and close to the herd not liking danger. Morningstar on the other hand Loved danger and risks. "I know... I miss him too." He whispered to her.
Morningstar soon stopped crying and just let herself be held by her younger brother, "I love you Starleaf. You are my family and I love you." She whispered to him.
Starleaf felt pained at how much she suffered, having to lead the herd, being different, not having parents. He felt that for him it had been easier since he was more a loner and she loved to have suport. Soon her mate came and Starleaf let him hold Morningstar. His head hung low STarleaf walked back to his own mate and lay down to rest.
Morningstar fell asleep in her mate's wings, it was a deep dreamless sleep as the herd settled in for the night
