Some of the old timer members remember this but it's time for an improovement! Omg I'm so excited! =D Here goes c:
Star basked in the morning sun, finally at peace. It's been 2 years since the death of the mighty stallion Nightwing, and everything was normal. Normal, not only was Anok normal, he was to. That alone made him feel like part of the herd. As he observed the birds fluttering about in the trees, next to him he felt Morningleaf wake up followed by Brackentail. Morningleaf yawned and stretched a bit.
"Good Morning!" Morningleaf whinnied.
"Morning." Brackentail answered back.
Morningleaf looked at him with a clueless expression, he meant good morning to star, but she quickly got it.
"Morning!" Star said back with a smile.
"Wow, look at all the birds!" Morningleaf exclaimed, it was spring, and the meadow was bursting with life.
"Yeah, we see them all day." Brackentail nickered. He thought only Star enjoyed sight-seeing.
"Your right.. but it just feels... special today you know?" Brackentail couldn't fight there. Star blinked, finally taking his eyes off of the sky.
"Alrighty, I'm going to check on the herd real quick." Brackentail perked his ears, and smiled.
It was silent for a moment, it was Morningleaf who broke the silence.
"I'm gonna grab a drink." She was about to trot off when Brackentail placed a wing over her chest and another over her back. Morningleaf stopped and tensed. She didn't dare move though.
"Um... what are you doing?"
"I was going to ask, can I talk to you for a second?"
Morningleaf sighed but followed, they went deeper into Dawn Meadow, where they used to play when they were foals. Brackentail didn't waste any time sweet talking.
"So I was wondering... do you have a mate?" Brackentail knew the answer was no but asked anyway.
"No. Of course not."
"Good." Brackentail nuzzled her and Morningleaf reverted her eyes from him. What on earth is he doing? Morningleaf didn't mind her friend invading her space, but this was to much!
"So, will you be my mate?"
Morningleaf gasped. it all became clear. Brackentail was acting nice to her all spring just to win her heart. Brackentail loved her, since they were foals. Brackentail tried killing Star, for her. Brackentail was here with her and earned her trust and her friendship, but was he a true friend? Did he just do all of this to become her mate? Morningleaf stammered.
"I- um- er- you- uh- sorry... no."
Brackentail eyes turned bitter.
"YES! YES YOU WILL BE MY MATE!" He struck her with his front hooves on the head, and before she could dodge, the world disapeared before her, and her conscience faded.
