"Hey! Come back!" Starbrook neighed at Stormpebble. The two fillies were playing chase, and Stormpebble was faster than a lightning bolt. Starbrook flew up towards her target and yanked Stormpebble's tail gentle, tugging her back. "Got ya!" Starbrook nickered. Without warning, Stormpebble whirled around and slammed her hoof against her friend. "Catch me if ya can!" She yelled playfully and dive-bombed out of the sky. "You little-" Starbrook sighed. Stormpebble won't stop for insults. "What's going on, you guys?" Rainblaze asked. Her, Riverbreeze, Horizonfire, Thundertail Iceblaze, and Echomoon joined the two fillies. This time, to Starbrook's relief, Stormpebble stopped in her tracks. "Playing chase," she nickered. Starbrook sidled up next to Stormpebble. "Tag," she whispered as she bumped wings with the other filly. "Mooncloud says we need to head back," Wispiflower's voice rang out, tickling the other pegasi's ears. Rainblaze's winsg sagged. "Ohhh, WHY?" She neighed sadly. Echomoon nickered and landed, folding her wings. "You're always sad when you can't play, Rainblaze." She nicmered. "Come on, guys, lets go." Horizonfire nodded. "Oookkayyyyyy." Rainblaze reluctantly agreed. The nine friends kicked off and flew towards Mist Herd's grazing territory. They landed in front of the lead mare, Mooncloud. "You wanted us back, mother?" Riverbreeze asked. "Yes. It's getting dark, you nine; graze and sleep."
"Can't we stay up for a LITTLE longer?" Rainblaze whined. Mooncloud sighed. "Rainwing is a little tight tonight. I wish you could, Rainblaze, but my mate would never agree to it." She said. She sighed again. "Come on, we can play a little while after we eat," Wispiflower whispered to her friends. Mooncloud's ears pricked, and she nickered. Somewhere behind Rainblaze, Echomoon facewinged (facepalming but with your wings). "She heard you." Riverbreeze whispered. "She looks really mad. Fly!" She nickered, and the nine flew to a rich grazing pasture. Once they ate their fill, they played a small game of chase. And then they heard the roar.
