"Morningleaf, come here!" Brackentail whinnied. It was dusk, and in just a few more minutes Brackentail would announce that he and Morningleaf were mates. He was excited, but first he had to convinve the mare to follow him. Morningleaf looked at Brackentail, pinned her ears, and turned around, her tail facing Brackentail. She slapped his face with her tail. He snorted and backed away. Brackentail walked in front on Morningleaf and pinned his ears. "Follow me, or I will tell Riversun to kill Star." Morningleaf opened her wings and reared. She landed, turned around, and flew off, away from Brackentail, to Star. She made up her mind. She was going to find Star, no matter what happened. She flew higher, and heard Brackentail's voice behind her: "Morningleaf! I need to talk to you!" Instead of stopping, Morningleaf flew faster. She quickly spotted the herd, and looked down, hoping to find Star. Suddenly she heard an excited neigh come from a stallion. Morningleaf perked her ears and flew even faster. Soon she saw Star, and didnt believe what she was seeing. The black stallion was devored in golden starfire. Morningleaf's eyes widened and in front of Star was Riversun, their enemy. Morningleaf landed next to Star, and looked at Riversun. The yearling's hooves were gold, just like Star's used to be. Once Riversun closed her mouth, she noticed Morningleaf's shocked expression. The yearling nickered to Star. "Well, half of our plan is already finished." Star nickered and nodded. Morningleaf looked at him. He was healed perfectly, and was beaming. "Wha-" "Shh.." Star nickered. He nuzzled Morningleaf and whispered. "I missed you." The mare relaxed and nickered. "I missed you too." Riversun was pleased. Morningleaf didnt like Brackentail. Now it should be easier to get him. Morningleaf looked at Riversun. "I dont understand.." The yearling nickered. "I have something to tell you.."
Brackentail gasped. Riversun.. loved him? No wonder she had said that there were other mares out there.. she loved him! Brackentail watched as Riversun was explaining her plan to Morningleaf. He hoped they didnt know he was there. When Morningleaf flew off Brackentail followed, but lost her. But he quickly saw her with Riversun and Star. He hid in some bushes, and heard their conversation.
Morningleaf snorted. "Hopefully Brackentail will stay away from me and Star if he is with you." Riversun shrugged. "Maybe." "But how are we going to get him to like you?" Morningleaf asked. Star answered. "We will explain to him that you will never love him, and that Riversun loves him. If he doesnt give in.." "Then I'll force him." Riversun finished. Wow.. Riversun really loves him.. Morningleaf thought. The yearling must have read her mind. "Yes.. I do.. and even if im disobeying my parent's orders to be cruel and evil to Star and you, I've decided to make my own decision." "And what is that?" Morningleaf asked. "I want to be good."
