Moonheart dived after him, using her starfire to go faster. "MOONHEART NO!" Riversun called. A small streak of silver fire clicked to her chest. She perked her ears. Elmglade wasn't killing the pegasi. She barely felt the thin silver ray invading her, she felt weak but not in pain. She fluttered to the ground feeling the urge to sleep and collapsed in place not aware of what was happening. A huge seed of golden fire was consumed by the stallion. Firewind bleated, sparks bouncing out of his mouth. At that moment another ray clipped to his chest and he fell asleep at Riversun's side. The seed was consumed. Star reared, teeth bared and Riversun shut her eyes, gritting her teeth. Not as fast but as subtle, the ray clipped to there chest to. Taking small proportions of golden light out of them to. When Elmglade was finished he closed his mouth and the meadow went dark. Riversun and Star were unharmed, but Flamewind was asleep and Moonheart was on the ground but still conscious. She look around her heart pounding. She attempted to draw her starfire to heal herself but she felt empty of the warm fire than gave her warmth. She blinked and gave up.
Moonheart gasped awake. "Stay down." Brackentail demanded. A tear fell on her tender wing. "I failed..." Morningleaf looked up. "Don't put so much pressure on yourself. We didn't fail. Not yet." "How? We can't do anything else. It's over." Riversun perked her ears. "Our job was never to defeat him remember." Moonheart jumped to her feet with all the energy she had left. "So? So what was our mission here? To give ourselves to Elmglade and let the pegasi part of the prophecy fail to?" Star finally spoke. "You don't get it. This helped them. Yes it will make the pegasi of Anok miserable until the prophecy takes place but they will survive. I have a plan."
