Iceblaze stood, thinking and then said "Hold it, since when were we talking about the prophecy here. It's already over Thundertail." Thundertail shook his head. "You don't get it, I saw it in my dream." His expression was excited, expecting her to believe. Iceblaze nickered loudly. "Ok. Bro, Dude, Pal, Amigo, you really should get some rest. You're getting under the weather here." She laid her shimmering golden white tipped wings on his shoulder, but he shoved her off. "I'm serious Iceblaze, we have a chance here!" "Only the prophecy pegasi have a chance!" She whinnied over his voice. He quieted, leaving her voice echoing through his brain. Then that deep, scorched pit flashed in his mind. In that split second he studied where that could be. He noticed where it was, at the heart of Anok. And that was at Canyon Meadow. He looked at her and saw what she thought in her eyes. He was crazy. He glared at her. "Fine. I'll do it then." He kicked off heading to Canyon Meadow. "Thundertail.." She moaned. But he didn't listen. If her sister was to ignorant to take him seriously he wouldn't take her seriously either. He knew his destination laid Northeast, but if he were to travel there alone he would have to fend off predators himself. He heard Iceblaze's anxious whinny. He flew on. After hours of flying he settled to rest. Once his hooves touched the ground he felt a wave a nausea pass through him. Maybe I am going crazy. Wait why am I traveling alone in the first place? He rolled his eyes. Yes, yes he was going crazy. He could barely remember yesterday. He didn't even know why he was doing this. Was it instinct. Or was it stupidity. He didn't know. But something drew him on to do this. And he had to follow that feeling, it wouldn't be there for no reason. Maybe I can rest just for a while... just a few hours after he shut his eyes, he awoken to the snarling face of a wolf. He staggered to his hooves and then noticed that there were more wolves, circling him. He threw out his wings to fly away but they lurched onto them, pinning them down. He reared and bared his teeth, trying to scare them away, but there eyes showed no fear of him. The rest of unoccupied wolves crouched about to pounce on him. He shut his eyes. This was the end. Suddenly, he heard a rustling of leaves. The wolves heard it to and twitched there ears sniffing the air. As sudden and they heard it, the short whine of a wolf made then let go of him. Then another whine of a wolf echoed across Sky Meadow, and then he saw who was downing the huge dogs. A hoof clubbed another wolf, he gasped. It was a pegasus!
