The gentle singing of a nearby bird awoken Thundertail, along with his little sister, Iceblaze. "Where are we?" She moaned. "I'm clueless." He got up and helped his sister up. "Do you think... were here?" She asked. Thundertail just noticed they were in the middle of a huge herd of pegasi. "I think so." "Within this very herd... the prophecy pegasi could be here." She said in awe. "Breath-taking eh?" "The fact?" "No, look around you." She gasped. They grass was lush and untouched, not covered in tasteless ash. The trees were full of leaves, not scorched by an angry over-stallion over-stallion. In the distance he noticed a piebald mare. She probably had the starfire. The only things he heard around him was the whinnying of pegasi, the singing of birds, the rustling of leaves, it was paradise. For a second he thought he was in the golden meadow. "Hello there." White stallion with a light gray mane and tail called. "AH!" Iceblaze almost fell off her hooves! Thundertail bit back the urge to correct her. "H- Hello, there. Sir." The stallion snorted. "No need to be hasty. Are you new here?" Thundertail stammered. "N- New?" The unknown pegasus nuzzled him. "Come on, we don't bite." He nickered. Thundertail corrected his words. "I'm new." "From which herd have you abandoned?" The stallion studied his build. Thundertail bumped Iceblaze with his hip. They did have a part of there history they knew! Could this be at Star's time but with no Star? Iceblaze, who had been quiet said. "We've come from Desert Herd, Sir." "Ah." He said. "Well, come along in. We'll show you how to fit in." He said with a smile. 30 pegasi emerged from the bushes. The prophecy pegasi? A piebald filly emerged from the bushes. "Hey you two!" The siblings exchanged glances. A chestnut filly with golden feathers tipped in black nickered. "I know this is kinda sudden to take in. But you'll get used to it!" She pointed at all 30 pegasi. "For now, let's all get to know you two eh?" Thundertail tensed for a bit then relaxed. "Okay." The two said.
The Storm Herd left Rahkki and the 5th clan and went to the place Redfire found. Echofrost felt like a half without Rahkki but she knew this day had to come. It has been a year since the Storm Herd left the landwalkers and started a new life. One night Echofrost felt sad because she had a flash back of Rahkki and how he saved her and how she saved him. " Are you thinking about him again?" asked Hazelwind. " Yeah but were free now. Free together." She nuzzeled him and went to go talk with Dewberry and her foals. I want to make her happy but we cant go to the landwalkers. The next morning, Hazelwind went up to Echofrost and said "maybe we can pay your boy a visit. Soon because of the foal coming." " Yeah. What should the name be" " We cant discuss it right now but maybe after the baby is born." " Your right Hazelwind." Dewberry trotted up with Shysong and told Echofrost to join them. " Coming. Sorry Hazelwind. I have to go." Echofrost trotted to Dewberry and Shysong and they started talking about the upcoming foal. Dewberry went up and put her wing up to Echofrost stomach and felt where the foal is. " Its getting closer. It should be due by next month by the most." " This is exciting that you and Hazelwind are going to be parents." said Shysong. " Yeah but im nervous." " Why are you nervous Echofrost. You should be happy that you are starting your own family. You should be happier that you still have Hazelwind. Your stallion didn't die on you when you first got pregnant." " Your right. Thanks Dewberry." "Anytime Echofrost. Here eat these. IT should help with the pains." Dewberry handed Echofrost some roots to handle the pains she was getting. " Hazelwind said that i can visit Rahkki and Feylah soon. After the foal has come and grown to be a weanling." " Thats great! Maybe I can visit I'Lenna some day. I miss her a little bit." said Shysong. The mares trotted happily back to the Storm herd and Echofrost went to talk to Hazelwind. " Arn't they cute together?" asked Shysong looking at Echofrost and Hazelwind. " Yeah they are. Both strong so their foal could be a spy or a battle mare." said Dewberry. " How do you know its a mare?" asked Shysong. " Echofrost is in her last month with her and her belly isnt as large as a mare with a boy inside. Mares are facing the right side of the stomach and males are facing the left side. I didn't want to tell her about it yet because their still picking out names for her." " Thats sweet that is is going to be a girl. No one in the herd knows what names they are picking. I can't wait to see what names they have chosen." A few weeks later, Echofrost was three days from due date and she was having pains ever so often. The day the baby is due, The Stallions are with Hazelwind by the lake and telling him its going to be ok. With Echofrost and Dewberry, they successfully delivered the foal. " Hazelwind. You can come now." Said Dewberry. Hazelwind trotted to Dewberry and entered the woods where Echofrost layed.The foal was awake and Echofrost was cleaning it off. " Hazelwind. Come here and meet her." Hazelwind hope rose and he touched the fillies nose with his. She played with his mane and they were both filled with joy. A minute later, they left the woods with the baby and they made the announcement. " The foal is a girl and we are naming her........."
