Oakbrook: -rears and backs away from the white mare- RAINBLAZE!
Wispiflower: -to surprised to get what’s going on- Ummmmm... Rainblaze?
Rainblaze: -bolts into Oakbrook’s opened wings and throws wings around his back, not answering-
Oakbrook: -nuzzles Rainblaze and drinks in her scent-
Wispiflower: -thinks in brain- Coperpool is not going to like this.
Rainblaze: -nickers happily and turns to Wispiflower- Wispi, meet Oakbrook! Oakbrook, meet Wispiflower or Wispicloud, our lead mare
Wispiflower: Ummm, hi
Wispiflower: -gives Rainblaze a questioning look-
Oakbrook: -nickers- Hey -turns to Rainblaze- Your.. beautiful
Rainblaze: -blushes and looks at the ground- Thanks, you look good too
Wispiflower: H-how do you two know each other? Bye
Rainblaze: Oakbrook And I spent time together as foals, so we know each other well
Wispiflower: Oh okay. Oh, and I didn’t mean to say bye, that- I had a moment.
Wispiflower: Sooo, can we get back to the mission at hand now?
Oakbrook: What mission?
Wispiflower: What? Oh no mission. -turns to Rainblaze-Rainblaze, if you tell him my life will be over.
Rainblaze: -bites lower lip- Ok
Oakbrook: -perks ears- What are you two talking about?
Rainblaze: Nothing you need to know. -nuzzles him- I’m glad you’re here..
-sighs- If you want he can come along for a little while so you guys can catch up.
Rainblaze: Oakbrook come with us, but, you listen to us. Please.
Wispiflower: -gestures into the secret tunnel/cave- I found it, let’s go. I want this to be over as quick as it possibly can. -takes Rainblaze’s wing who is holding Oakbrook’s wing and leads them in and doesn’t stop until she can hear muffled voices that she can decipher- Can you hear okay Rain?
Rainblaze: -perks ears- Ya I hear them
Mintbreeze: -looks at the entrance of the cave and perks ears- I think someone is coming
Windwing: -walks up towards entrance and whinnies in shock- Who are you?
Ashfrost: -perks ears- Who are YOU?
Mintbreeze: -nickers in excitement- Ashfrost!!
Wispiflower: -accidentally says out loud- Who are YOU? Ashfrost I assume? And don’t you remember me AT ALL Windwing? Do you even remember yourself?
Mintbreeze: -stops suddenly and rears, noticing Wispiflower, Rainblaze, and some stallion- Ashfrost! Windwing! Attack!!!!
Rainblaze: -rears and whinnies- Wispiflower, get Windwing! I’ll get Mintbreeze! Oakbrook, get that chestnut mare!
Oakbrook: -stares at the mare but nods and charges-
Wispiflower: -gets an idea, grabs Windwing by the mane with her mouth and flies him down into the woods- You’ll thank me later.
-notices the sun had just set and it was dark-
Windwing: -opens wings and kicks at the mare- What are you doing?!?
Wispiflower: -sun totally gone now so she’s getting a hopeful feeling that the spell broke- Wake up Windwing, it’s me, Wispiflower.
Windwing: -manages to get mane free and bolts into the dark sky, and looks up at the moon-
-feels a strange shock go through him and falls to the ground-
Wispiflower: -tears forward and let’s him land on top of her so he doesn’t get hurt-
-rolls him off her back and sees his eyes open- Are you okay? Are you back to normal?
Windwing: -blinks and looks at Wispiflower- What are we doing here?
Rainblaze: -brays loudly in anger and drops hooves onto Mintbreeze’s Back making her fall down- -looks at Oakbrook- Let’s go!!!
Oakbrook: -stops in front of the chestnut mare and stares- Who are you? -ignores Rainblaze-
Wispiflower: -wing palm- You loose your memory easily... Do you remember our.. disagreement?
Windwing: What disagreement?
-tells him the whole thing while crying a little-
Wispiflower: I’m sorry, I was so dumb. You were right when you asked me if I was sick.
Windwing: -shrugs- I don’t remember it. It’s fine
Windwing: That doesn’t answer my question though. Why are we here??
Wispiflower: Mintbreeze. Again.
Windwing: -falls back and fake dies-
Wispiflower: I feel the same way. -sighs- She’s still up there with her friend.
Oakbrook: -charges the mare then stops, staring at her- -widens eyes- Hey
Mintbreeze: -gets up quickly and rams Rainblaze-
Rainblaze: -spreads our legs and keeps neck low, not falling over-
-watches Mintbreeze, and waits till she’s off guard, then fears and about tramples her-
Windwing: -snorts- What friend?
Mintbreeze: -falls to the ground with a shriek-
Wispiflower: Mintbreeze called her Ashfrost I think.
Rainblaze: -rears, and brays loudly- -comes down and lands hooves on the mare’s front legs, immediately breaking them-
Mintbreeze: -shrieks loudly and tries to stand, then falls over and faints-
Ashfrost: -pins ears and turns, kicking Oakbrook in the chest and bolts to Mintbreeze-
Rainblaze: -whinnies to Oakbrook- Go! -bolts to the front of the cave and dives towards the ground-
Oakbrook: -stumbles backgrounds but stays balanced and follows Rainblaze-
Windwing: -rolls eyes- Ashfrost. I remember her. She left the herd when she was a a two-year old with Mintbreeze.
Windwing: Both of them wanted to be my mare. It was ridiculous
Racewind: -glides down to the cave, hearing the ruckus-
-sees Mintbreeze lying on the ground with her legs smashed and dashed to her side- What happened?!
Wispiflower: -groans- Sounds like it.
-pauses- Can I tell you what I was going to say the day we had that disagreement?
Mintbreeze: -groans- Rainblaze.
Ashfrost: -gently strokes Mintbreeze’s legs- It’s a minor break. You’ll be able to walk well in a moon-and a- half or so.
Racewind: Oh, you must be Ashfrost. I’m Mintbreeze’s mate Racewind.
Wispiflower: Well, first I want to know how much you forgot.
Rainblaze: -lands on the ground breathing hard and sweat trickling down her forehead-
Oakbrook: -lays wing on her back- Good job
Rainblaze: -pins ears and glares at him-Why didn’t you fight that mare like I told you too?!
Ashfrost: -nods- Nice to meet you. -looks at Mintbreeze and watches her fade into a deep, almost faint-like sleep- -whispers- I don’t understand why she became your mate then she pregnant with your foal and leaves to claim it as Windwing’s.
Windwing: -paws ground- I have memory problems...
Wispiflower: Then what do you remember?
Racewind: -shocked but pretended he knew all along- I don’t understand it either.
Windwing: -shrugs- Not much. Last thing I remember was playing tag
Windwing: With you, Rainblaze, Coperpool, Mapleglade, And Junetree
Ashfrost: -shakes head- Mintbreeze is.. very desperate
Wispiflower: Okay, that’s just enough.
-breathes in deeply before continuing- Umm, I think you’re gonna be a sire of two.
Windwing: -widens eyes- ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?
Windwing: -rears and whinnies happily-
Wispiflower: -laughs- Yeah!
Wispiflower: Now come back down here!
Windwing: -nickers and glides down to her-
Wispiflower: -leans against him- Can we please go home?
Oakbrook: -eyes widen- You never said to fight that mare (This is exactly what Ray would say)
Rainblaze: -bares teeth- Yeah right! You said “Ok!” Right after I gave you your orders. This is exactly what it was like when we were foals! You are too lazy and too distracted to accomplish ANYTHING! -jumps into the sky and flies back to the herd-
Wispiflower: -sighs in relief- Thank you.
-wraps her wings around her stomach and moans quietly-
Windwing: -doesn’t hear her moan and flies into the sky, then stops waiting for her-
Wispiflower: -shakes it off and flies up quickly catching up to him-
Junetree: Coperpool, give us a second.
Coperpool: -shrugs wings- Okay. -turns to Mapleglade- You better get back down there and do what she says. You know the landwalker saying: happy wife happy life.
Mapleglade: -stomps hoof- Fine
Mapleglade: -turns to Junetree- What do you want to talk about that’s so important it had to delay my time for fun?
Junetree: -points with her wing to the ground- get down here!
Coperpool: -leaves as fast as he can-
Mapleglade: -snorts- Ok mom.
Junetree: -waits till he comes down then starts talking again- I just wanted to know if... You were okay about being a sire? You just didn’t seem that excited....
Mapleglade: -narrows eyes- I would be proud to be one. If I knew the foal was for surely mine.
Wispiflower: -as they are flying home- I feel a little achey tonight, it’s really weird.
Rainblaze: -lands in the woods next to the herd- -perks ears and says aloud- Where’s Coperpool?
Windwing: -stops- Is something wrong?
Junetree: -wing palm- You don’t still think it’s someone else’s do you? How can I prove to you that it’s not?!
Coperpool: -hears her from below and glides down to join her- I’m right here!
Oakbrook: Uhh.. who’s Coperpool?
Rainblaze: -suddenly realizes that Oakbrook liked her and wanted to be with her, that’s why he found her- -wing palms- He’s a stallion.. I care for very much
Wispiflower: I don’t know.. It’s just really weird. -foal kicks her hard and she groaned-
Rainblaze: -nickers excitedly and nuzzles Coperpool- Where have you been?
Junetree: Can I do anything?
Windwing: -bites lip- Let’s go quickly to the herd and find Pineberry
Mapleglade: -shrugs again-
Coperpool: I’ve been here! Where have you been? -notices Oakbrook and pins ears- Who is this?
Mapleglade: -paws ground, eyes droopy- Let’s go to bed, it’s dark
Junetree: -shrugs- Fine. -plops, instantly falling asleep-
Rainblaze: -remembers that he didn’t know about Mintbreeze- Oh, Wispiflower and I went to find Windwing. He was with Mintbreeze.. again. But don’t worry, I took care of her. -glares at Oakbrook-
Oakbrook: -throws up wings- Hey! I didn’t hear you!
Rainblaze: -rolls eyes-
Wispiflower: No, it’s okay. I’m okay. -starts flying at a regular pace toward the herd-
Mapleglade: -falls over asleep-
Windwing: -snorts- Ok..
Coperpool: What am I missing here?
Rainblaze: Oh, this is Oakbrook, my-
Oakbrook: Stallion. We agreed to become mates as foals. That’s what I came here for, to find her and fulfill my promise
Coperpool: -chokes- What? -growls as he says it-
Coperpool: -rears- Get out of here, Rainblaze is my mate and no one else’s!!
Rainblaze: -wing palms but stays calm- -says casually- Oakbrook, meet my mate Coperpool. Coperpool, meet my friend Oakbrook.
Oakbrook: -takes a step back and looks at Rainblaze- You never said you had a mate!
Rainblaze: -shrugs- I never said I didn’t
Coperpool: -goes back to four legs and sputters- Why didn’t you mention him sooner?
Rainblaze: He interrupted me. And I didn’t need too, once he left the herd I went to follow my own path.
Oakbrook: -mouth flys open- I asked you to come with me! But I’m here now! For you!
Rainblaze: I didn’t want to go with you, I belong in Prairie Herd with Coperpool. And if you wanted me sooner, you should’ve come sooner than 8 years!
Coperpool: -just standing there, mouth gaping, listening to the conversation-
Wispiflower: -almost back to the Herd with Windwing- -suddenly understands the aches- Windwing, I think it’s time.
Oakbrook: -stomps hoof- Fine then. Go with your mate and break your promise that you promised me 9 years ago.
Rainblaze: -pins ears- If you stayed, that promise would’ve been fulfilled. But it was your own mistake that left me hanging and wanting to find some other stallion. We can be friends, but that’s the farthest I’m gonna go with you.
Oakbrook: -narrows eyes- Fine. -turns around and jumps into the sky, flying away-
Windwing: -widens eyes- But it’s to early!
Windwing: Can you fly a bit farther? I’ll go get Pineberry
Wispiflower: I know I can.
Windwing: -doesn’t wait for an answer and races to the mare- -quickly finds her treating a stallion- -stops, breathing hard- Wispicloud is in labor!
Coperpool: Well, that was unexpected. -hears Windwing shout- Did you just hear that?
Pineberry: What? But this is much to early!
Rainblaze: -perks ears- Was that him?
Pineberry: -straitened- Show me where she is.
Windwing: I know!
Pineberry: Is she coming? Where is she? And need to see her at once!
Windwing: Over here! At the edge of the woods
Pineberry: -instantly flying that way, finding Wispiflower just landing- Lay down.
Wispiflower: -obeys And lays on her side-
Pineberry: -turns back to Windwing- This is very rare. Normally I would have you leave, but with chances so slim would you like to stay with her?
Windwing: -nods without hesitation-
-turns attention back to Wispiflower- Breath. Everything will be alright.
Wispiflower: -nods, stress lines etched across her face and breathing as calmly as possible- -turns head to Windwing- Come closer, just in case I- You know, I want you right here.
Pineberry: Okay Wispicloud, you ready? This is gonna be a wild ride.
Wispiflower: -turns head back and nods with a hint of fear-
Windwing: -glares at Wispiflower- Don’t talk like that
Wispiflower: -starts crying- Just do it, please.
Pineberry: Shhh. Calm down. With all due respect Windwing, you might want to do it because stressing her just slims her chances even more than now.
Windwing: Do what?
Pineberry: Go sit next to her.
Windwing: -nods and sits on rump right next to her-
Pineberry: Okay, here we go.
-prepares for the jolt that happened every few minutes- It’s starting.
Pineberry: Okay, the key to this is staying calm. Remember to breath quick slowly, and not all fast.
-nodded- -feels the jolt and grimaces as she tries to stay calm and breath-
Pineberry: You’re doing good. Here, eat these. -puts a pile of herbs next to Wispiflower’s mouth-
Wispiflower: -nods and eats the herbs-
-whispers in Windwing’s ear-
P-please. P-put your forehead against mine.
Windwing: -thinks she’s just being dramatic but does it anyways-
Pineberry: Close your eyes, both of you.
Windwing: -closes eyes and covers them and ears with wings-
Pineberry: -one hour later- Windwing, keep your eyes closed please. Wispicloud you can open them for a moment.
Wispiflower: -opens her eyes and stifles a gasp- It-
Pineberry: You can close your eyes again now. One down one to go!
Windwing: -has already fallen asleep-
Windwing: -snorts softly in sleep, like a snore-
Pineberry: -a couple minutes later-
-shakes Windwing frantically- Wake up!
Windwing: -snorts and head shots up- What? What’s wrong?
Pineberry: It’s Wispicloud! She- she’s...
Windwing: She’s.... What?
Pineberry: She’s.. dying. Or at least... I don’t know what else it could be.
Junetree: -wakes up on cue- Wispiflower needs me.
Junetree: -flies right to Pineberry’s glade- I know what’s wrong with her and how to treat it. Let me help her.
Junetree: -immediately starts working- Pineberry can you get Rosemary dust and crushed Nutmeg?
Pineberry: Of coarse!
-zips to go get the herbs and zips back within two seconds- Got them!
Junetree: Thanks. Now let’s hope and pray this works.
-frowns- PRAY PEGASI AND I MEAN IT!!
Windwing: -paws ground- What does she have? What sickness is it?
Mapleglade: -walks into the grove and sees Wispiflower on the ground surrounded by Windwing, Pineberry and Junetree- -jaw drops- -says in a croaked voice- Wha-what happened?!
Junetree: It’s the illness I warned her about. The one Coperpool told you about Windwing.
Windwing: I don’t remember that
Junetree: Well he told you.
Junetree: I need a volunteer to help me.
Rainblaze: -bursts into the grove- What’s wrong?! -looks at Junetree- I’ll be your helper
Junetree: Okay. All you need to do is hold her mouth open. I need to rub the herbs in her mouth and then help her swallow them. I know, it’s weird.
Rainblaze: -rushes over to Wispiflower and opens her mouth with wings-
