The Legends Of Skyherd: 5: The Black Foal.

Digging roots was harder than Wintertail expected that afternoon. The ground was more frozen than usual, even with spring just around the corner. She had been working on the same root all afternoon.

Wintertail heard a whiny from the sky, a whiny sounding much like Thunderflight’s. She gazed up into the darkening sky. There he was, with his battle stallions behind him carrying what seemed like a limp animal.

Thunderflight flew there like a hero awaiting a prize.

Snowwing climbed into the sky, the noble stallion was growing older and more fragile. His Son would soon take his place.

Snowwing greeted Thunderflight with a nod of a head.

They exchanged words, but Wintertail was too far away to tune in. Snowwing and his son both made they’re way to the stallions carrying the limp creature. Tealfire, a captain with dark teal wings nudged the animal. As Snowwing approached the animal, he took one glance and jumped back in surprise and

shock.

Wintertail had to figure out what was going on! Snowwing and Thunderflight led the group to the ravine where Pebbleroot kept her supples.

The sun had fully set now and all Wintertail could see was the silhouette of the leader and the steeds.

Wintertail took this chance to secretly sneak to the ravine. She lifted her wings off of her glossy coat and quietly glided to the ravine. Making sure she was being as quiet as possible, she crept up behind the muscular warriors.

In the quiet valley, it was easy to listen in on the conversation between Snowwing and the medicine mare. All around her, she was sure the rest of the herd was secretly listening and edging closer to the shady ravine.

 

————————

 

“What happened!?” Pebbleroot asked, worry seeping through her.

”We found a colt.” Snowwing started. ”and he’s in bad condition. He was born only hours before the partol got there.”

”alright, we can find him a foster dam and-” she was interupted by Thunderflight.

”It’s the black foal!” He said it so fast for a second Pebbleroot didn’t understand him. It was so dark outside she couldn’t even see the light color of a white marking. but the next bit of news shocked her even more. ”and his mother was a horse. when we found him his mother was dead. Probably died from giving birth. The foal fell unconscious as we lifted him back to the herd.” he finished, his eyes looking panicked.

Pebbleroot stood, surprisingly calm. Sure she was shocked and nervous, but the main goal was to find the colt a mother, black foal or not. Even from the darkness, she could tell he was thin, unnaturally thin. The colt started bleating halfway through the conversation. They needed to act fast.

  • 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.
