Junetree: -at his side immediately- What hurts?!
Junetree: -shakes Mapleglade’s shoulders- -sobs- Tell me what hurts!
Mapleglade: -can’t reply and feels sick-
Junetree: -thinks the roots are killing him- No. No no no. -sobbing the whole time-
Whitefrost: -takes the opportunity to sneak away but runs into a filly-
Emeraldblaze: -blinks- Who are you? (Is Whitefrost paired up with Hollylight or Emeraldblaze?)
Rainblaze: -speaks with a shaky voice- Whats wrong with him, Junetree?
Hollylight: We’ve never seen you before.
Junetree: -continues to sob uncontrollably- I don’t know. I think he’s- -voice catches- -gulps down the lump in her throat- he’s dying.
Whitefrost: -stares at the two pretty fillys, but with pinned ears- Get out of my way.
Rainblaze: Don’t give up yet, maybe he just needs rest, like a normal cold.
Hollylight: Waaaait, aren’t you Windwing’s colt?!
Junetree: -stops sobbing- -sniffles- Maybe.
Whitefrost: Don’t say my father’s name!
Hollylight: -blinks- Sorry. We’re Coperpool’s fillies.
Rainblaze: -glances at the twins and whispers- Whitefrost ate that plant, so he’s mad too.
Hollylight: -nods, understanding washing over her- Got it. Think we can snap him out of it with our adorable charms? -blinks sparkly little puppy eyes to demonstrate-
Emeraldblaze: -nickers- So Whitefrost, what do you like to do?
Hollylight: -whispers to her sister,- Do you think he’ll answer?
Whitefrost: Don’t speak of me!
Hollylight: You said that already Whitefrost.
Whitefrost: -rears- Knock it off and leave me alone!!
Hollylight: Geez, you could handle this civilly and I would stop gladly you know.
Whitefrost: -snorts and shoves past them-
Hollylight: Oh well, so much for adorable charms.
Whitefrost: -rolls eyes and breaks into a trot, searching for his sire-
Wispiflower: -pales- -looks around- Wait, where is Whitefrost?
Crimsonwind: -perks ears- He was just with Coperpool’s fillies
Rainblaze: -looks at the twins- Where did Whitefrost go?
Hollylight: Who knows. He just stomped of like an old grump. -pouts-
Rainblaze: Which direction did he go in?
Hollylight: Uhhhhhh.... THAT WAY! -points in the direction where Windwing was waiting to get out of the valley/prison-
Rainblaze: -nods and turns to Wispiflower- He must be going to Windwing.
Emeraldblaze: -looks back in the direction Whitefrost when and starts to follow him-
Hollylight: WHERE ARE YOU GOING?!?! -doesn’t want her sister associating with a grump-
Emeraldblaze: -stops and puts wing on her sister’s muzzle- Shh.. I wanna to see what he’s going to do.
Hollylight: -goes into spy mode- In that case, I’m in. -whispers super quietly and creeps after her sis-
Emeraldblaze: -smiles and trots gracefully and quietly to Whitefrost-
Hollylight: -creeps along behind her sister- Do you still see him? -whispers softly-
Emeraldblaze: -nods and points to him with wing-
Whitefrost: -trots up to his sire- Father, everyone keeps bothering me!
Hollylight: -smothers a loud laugh-
Emeraldblaze: -nickers softly-
Hollylight: -listens super hard to try to hear Windwing’s response to what his colt said-
Windwing: -snorts- I know how you feel.
Emeraldblaze: -huffs- I really wish they weren’t so cranky.
Hollylight: Shhhhh!!! I’m trying to listen! -whisper/hisses-
Hollylight: -listens very hard to the conversation-
Whitefrost: -perks ears and turns, glaring at the fillies- Get outta here!
Emeraldblaze: -perks ears too- How did he know we were here?
Hollylight: -gapes- No idea! Let’s pretend to leave and then spy on them from better cover. -she whispered super quiet-
Emeraldblaze: -nods and starts to walk away-
Whitefrost: -flies in front of them and stops, ears pinned- Where do you think your going?
Hollylight: You told us to get out of here! -blinks eyes with innocence and confusion-
Whitefrost: -snorts- Well, now I want an explanation on why you were spying on me.
Emeraldblaze: Spying? Pffft.. no, we we’re just- uh- passing by!
Hollylight: Yeah! Also, there’s an awesome Mountain View right behind you in case you haven’t noticed since we’re stuck in this canyon and all.
Emeraldblaze: -smiles and nods-
Whitefrost: -rolls eyes- Yeah right.
Hollylight: No really! Look! -points-
Whitefrost: -snorts and looks above them, spotting the mountains- Whatever.
Hollylight: -smiles sweetly- Well, we’ll be going now. Goodbye. -walks into the woods casually, indicating that her sister follow-
Emeraldblaze: -turns and flicks Whitefrost with her tail and follows her sister-
Whitefrost: -spits and wipes muzzle with wing, ears pinned but deep down feels a teensy-bit flattered-
Hollylight: What was that? -asks with a suspicious smile but feels a tad threatened-
Emeraldblaze: -smiles/smirks- An attempt to cheer him up and give him a taste of my charm. (Should we have these two fight over Whitefrost when their older? Creates even more drama xD)
(MILLION TIMES, YES!!!!)
Hollylight: Oh... okay. -changes subject- C’mon! Time’s a waistin’! We need to get up there to spy! -points to trees-
Emeraldblaze: Okay, race ya to the top!
Hollylight: -giggles- -wins easily- I won! -she whispered- Let’s listen very carefully this time.
Emeraldblaze: Hey! Cheater!
-nickers and shoves her sister off the tree-
Whitefrost: -perks ears and looks up into the trees, searching for the fillys but fails to see them from the thick branches-
Hollylight: AAAAH! -falls onto Whitefrost’s back and they both crash-
Emeraldblaze: -gasps and flies down to both- -pulls Hollylight off him-
Whitefrost: -grunts from the impact and collapses-
Whitefrost: -lands on a plant full of some liquid/gel that splats into his mouth and instantly gets dizzy and faints-
Emeraldblaze: -gasps- Hollylight?! Are you okay?
Hollylight: -rushes to inspect him for any obvious injuries- I am so, so sorry. Are you okay?
Hollylight: I’m fine, but what about him? Oh, it’s all my fault. AGAIN.
Hollylight: -kneels down next to him- Seriously, are you okay? Did you just choke? Was that my fault too?
Emeraldblaze: It’s not your fault, its mine. I pushed you off the tree
Hollylight: -gasps in shock- That was YOU?! I thought it was the wind!
Emeraldblaze: -lowers head and sniffs the deflated plant- -perks ears- Its milkweed! That’s the cure Junetree gave to Mapleglade. -sniffs Whitefrost next- I think he fainted. And yes, that was me. Didn’t you feel me shove you?
Hollylight: I thought it was a brach pushed by the wind! -perks ears, hearing the milkweed part and deciphers it- But didn’t Mapleglade just get worse?
Emeraldblaze: I actually think thats just the way the medicine is working through his system. Maybe its different on everybody?
Hollylight: But auntie Junetree was yelling “he’s gonna die!” or something like that, wasn’t she?
Windwing: -trots up to the group of adults and spots his brother on the ground- -pins ears- What did you do to him?!
Emeraldblaze: She’s just scared, but I’m sure Mapleglade will be fine. He’s tough like his brother.
Junetree: -bursts into fresh tears- I didn’t do anything! I was trying to help him!
Hollylight: If ya say so...
Windwing: -rears as if about to give a death blow- You killed him!!!
Rainblaze: -gasps and runs in front of him- -rears also- Leave them alone! -brings down front hooves onto his head-
Windwing: -neighs in shock and collapses onto the ground-
Rainblaze: -snorts and turns to Junetree- He’s sick too, I know he would never mean to snap at you like that.
Junetree: -cannot make eyes go back to normal size- U-um, I don’t know if I can help him. He’s right, I killed his brother. -sobs into wings-
Rainblaze: -puts wing on her shoulder- Junetree, if anyone can help Mapleglade its you. You know that.
Junetree: -sniffles and shakes head- No. It’s not like I’m some sort of superhero.
Rainblaze: But you’re a healer.
Mapleglade: -legs kick out and body is drowned in cold sweat-
-stretches out neck, nostrils flared, and closes eyes, falling asleep-
Whitefrost: -body also breaks into a shallow, cold sweat-
-breathes lightly, and starts to wake up-
Junetree: -eyes widen at Mapleglade who’s head has been resting motionless on the ground in front of her until now- -looks at Rainblaze, temporarily unable to speak- -gains voice- I guess maybe that just proved that you’re right... -tiny smile of huge relief-
