"I'll go and find out what happened," whispered Stormwind to the three fillies and Summerglade. He took off and swooped over to where the warriors had just landed with the captured weanlings.

Ravensong was in no condition to talk to, so her four remaining friends spoke in whispers to each other. They also kept glancing toward Stormwind where he was speaking with a stallion that had been a part of the raiding party.

Soon, he turned and flew back to his friends. First, he kneeled down beside Ravensong. "Ravensong," he said softly, gently nudging her with his muzzle. "Ravensong," he started again with relief audible in his voice. "Your brother and the other pegasus are fine. They just went straight back to their patrols."

She heaved herself to her hooves quickly looking much calmer. "Who told you?" she questioned.

"The white stallion with the dark green wings over there," he replied pointing in the direction of the stallion with his wing.

"Oh, good!" Ravensong replied.

"Summerglade and I probably need to go because it's almost time for flight school to start. See you later!" Stormwind told them. Both colts flew off, but Stormwind kept glancing over his shoulder at the four fillies.

"Let's go meet the new weanlings!" exclaimed Thunderstone, who was always eager to make a new friend.

"Alright," answered Lakesky. The four fillies lifted off over the grass to where the two new weanlings were standing talking to Riverwing. They landed a little ways from them and waited for Riverwing to finish.

When he turned away they were able to get their first good look at the weanlings. One was a dark silver filly. Her coat was so dark that it looked almost brown. The other was a dapple gray colt who seemed a little cocky and had a playful but challenging glint in his eye. On the other hand, the filly seemed very quiet and shy. But what pegasus wouldn't be that way after they had just been captured by an enemy herd.

None of the fillies wanted to make the first move. Not even always-ready-to-make-a-friend Thunderstone. Luckily, Lakesky's dam, Echodance, landed next to them and prodded the fillies forward knowing that these foreign weanlings would want a friend or two in a strange herd because she had been captured from Mountain Herd when she was young.

"Hello," she said as she stepped forward. " I am Echodance. This is my filly Lakesky, and her friends Thunderstone, Moonstone and, Ravensong," she continued, gesturing to each one of them in turn.

"Hello," the fillies mumbled shyly. Thunderstone even ventured, "What are your names?"

"The colt answered,"I'm Sagefrost, and this is my twin sister Skydance."

Seeing that they were uncomfortable to get to know each other, Echodance offered to show the twins around. They kicked off and flew toward Big Sky Lake.

The fillies lifted off to retreat to the fallen log at the far end of the field, which was their favorite hangout.

When they were in the air, moonstone nudged Ravensong and whispered,"They did bring back a cute colt.

Ravensong just rolled her eyes and smiled to herself. "Who but Moonstone," she wondered,"Would care about a thing like that?

Wait how is that a love triangle? AWESOME JOB THOUGH!

Jan 19, 2018

Thanks! But how is it a love triangle?

Jan 19, 2018

it's an expression and there are no shapes with only 2 sides, so triangle has 3 and it's the closest

But what does that have to do with love?

It looks like Moonstone has a crush on the Mountain Herd colt

  • His mother, Flameblaze, shook her head. Like always, she knew what he was thinking. He had to save them both. Sunray also caught the gleam in his eye and horror flashed across her face. Without another thought, he charged the huge cat, rearing up to stomp his hooves down on it, but it swiped at his stomach, causing both mares to flitch at the damage it made. Nightsky ignored the pain and continued to exchange blows until the cat snarled and stalked away, hissing when Flameblaze kicked it for good measure. Sunray and Flameblaze rushed to Nightsky, each worried and cautious at the wounds covering him. "Flameblaze? Sunray?" Nightsky wheezed out before choking on his own blood. "We are here, son," Gently, Flameblaze nudged him, letting him know it was her. "Did I win?" With glazed eyes, he looked at them both. "You sure did," Sunray moved towards him. "Rest a bit, alright? You're going to be okay." Nightsky is close to death, Sunray is emotionally exhausted, and Flameblaze is a mess. If Sunray and Flameblaze argue on what to do, comment below "Page 3-Time". If Sunray takes charge, comment below "Page 3-In Charge". If Flameblaze takes charge, comment below "Page 3-Follow the Leader". (This peticular post is pretty short, since this one kind of determines the whole story.)
  • Brackentail never stopped nagging Morningleaf to love him. He tried everything. Walking with her, giving her gifts, and just spending so much time trying to impress her. He never stopped getting ideas to try and make her see his worth. And it was getting on Morningleaf's nerves. This morning, Star had called a counsel meeting and Brackentail had no choice but to attend. They had finished all matters when Sweetroot, the current counsel mare, called Star aside. "Star," she sighed, "I can't keep doing this." "What do you mean?" "I'm too old. I was a leader of River Herd, but that was almost a year ago. YOU need to find yourself a mate. She can take-over my job. I know you've been waiting to find someone perfect, but she's been in front of you this whole time." She said looking at him with her old eyes. She put her wing on his chest, as if she were his Granddam. "You know she is the perfect leader." Star sighed, knowing he should've taken responsibility and not have put pressure on the old mare in the first place. He had a huge decision to make. And little did he know, Brackentail was listening the whole time. It was time for Brackentail to make his move. He knew Morningleaf would never love him as long as Star was around. He needed to find a way to get rid of Star. But how. Star had always been his best-friend. (Besides for their childhood) He couldn't hurt Star. But he could get to Star's 'special someone' before he did. And that was exactly what he'd do. He puffed his chest and walked up to the most beautiful mare he had ever met. "Morningleaf, can I talk to you." (EW. This was : A; horrible B; Short And I think the last time I wrote one of these was like............. Januaray, so uhh yah its been a hot minute. Which is why im so rusty. :l )
  • ThunderFeather glances around her and spots another pegasus sneaking up behind her. “What is your problem, FlameHeart?!” she whinnies exasperatedly. “I am supposed to get you! Your mom ordered me to!” FlameHeart says in his usual high and mighty way. ”Could you maybe be a little less snooty once I a while!” ThunderFeather snaps angrily, “I will go to my mother...without you!” ”Ugh! You are so annoying! Why can’t you just do as I say! My dad is the over stallion! I am the grandfoal of ShadePebble and ClawFire! I deserve respect!” ”Yeah, well try earning it!” ThunderFeather leaps off the ground and flies to the other yearlings. “Where is MorningDew?” She asks.”She is over there with StarFeather,” ShadePepple says. ShadePebble usually stays and watches over the yearlings. ClawFire died 8 years ago defending SunHerd territory from a MountainHerd raid. ”Hello ThunderFeather!” Her father, StarFeather booms. StarFeather is ThunderFeathers uncle and Star’ and MorningLeaf’s second foal, and her mother, MorningDew, is the first. “Hi!” ThunderFeather runs up and nuzzles him, “What happened? You were gone for days!” ”I was on a mission. And practicing with this,” his eyes twinkle and he breathes a small burst of golden fire. All the descendents of Star had one of the powers of the star fire. Her mother could create a shiel, her uncle could breathe healing fire, and her cousin could breathe silver fire. ThunderFeather couldn’t do anything yet. ”Look, I know you will be able to do something,” her mother says. ”I honestly don’t care. The other yearlings make fun of me enough right now, and powers will make it worse.” ThunderFeather says for the thousandth time, mother! ”why? You will be able to stand up for yourself.” StarFeather ask. ”I can stand up for myself perfectly fine right now. I can fight better than any of them.” As she says this, two sparks fall to the ground, one silver, one gold. ”See!” says her uncle, “I knew you could do it!” As he says that, one of the yearlings playing turns aroun, and promptly bursts into flames. ”Well, little foal, I guess it is time to wake up. i will have so much fun. You...might not,” it ends in a cackle, wich turns into the foals dying scream.
