Sorry this took so long and ended up being quite short. XD
Dustwing landed gracefully next to his mate Wispcloud and looked toward their filly in the meadow. He smiled to himself then turned his attention to the red roan steed, Vaporfire. He had just returned from a hopeful allegiance and was about to reveal the verdict.
Vaporfire appeared upset as he landed infront of his Over-stallion “Dustwing,” he greeted with a bow of his head.
Dustwing bowed back to the Captain, “So. What has Windwing decided?”
Vaporfire folded his silver wings and stood tall, “It seems that he isn’t interested in an alliance with us. He said that mountain herd can offer them more protection than we can,”
Dustwing turned his gaze to the herd he called his own. Their numbers were the lowest of the herd, but it was steadily increasing, and his steeds were some of the best warriors out of all of the herds. But he guessed that they must want numbers over strength. “Alright. If he has decided to team up with mountain herd, then so be it. We will be fine on our own,”
Wispcloud looked towards the yearlings and weanling, the dams and Sires out in the meadow grazing with their young, “We need to come up with a plan. Especially for the young ones. Our future lies with the youth after all,”
Dustwing looked towards his mate a twinkle in his eyes, “Exactly right.” He turned to Vaporfire, “I want you and your patrol to find a shelter of sorts or a good spot to make one. We wouldn’t want to be surprised and have nowhere to take them.”
Vaporfire took off sending out a sharp neigh to his squad telling them to follow.
Dustwing watched them leave before he turned to his mate, “I am going to go look as well. I love you and I will be back.” He took off into the air. A lone blood red feather floating down.
Wispcloud smiled at her Mate and she whispered under her breath as she watched the feather float to the ground, “Blood stains what it touches and you, my love, have left your mark.”
