Brackentail paced back and forth. Riversun loved him? And Morningleaf hated him.. maybe he should just give Morningleaf to.. No. Brackentail would never give his mare to Star. Never. He loved Morningleaf, and he will fight Star to get her. He and Morningleaf will become mates. He and Morningleaf will have foals. He and Morningleaf will live and love together till the day they die. Brackentail made up his mind. He would not let Morningleaf go.
Star and Morningleaf layed together in the grass. Now their captivity wasnt much of a captivity anymore. They were together, healthy, and happy. Riversun said that she would let them go, but not until she and Brackentail were together. Star and Morningleaf agreed. With Brackentail and Riversun together, Morningleaf and Star would never be bothered. They planned on letting the herd know that they were mates when Star and Morningleaf returned. They werent yet though. But they were going to be soon.
Morningleaf laid her head on the grass. She still had a bad feeling. And so did Star. They knew something wasnt right. Riversun was gone, trying to find Brackentail. She was going to tell him the truth. But Morningleaf believed that she was going to fail. Star told Morningleaf that he was afraid that Brackentail wouldnt give Morningleaf up. But soon, they got their answer.
Brackentail reared and flew off, searching for Morningleaf and Star. Behind him were four stallions, who all hated Star and wished for him to be killed. Brackentail's plan was in action. Soon he would find Morningleaf, kidnap her, and make her his mate. Two stallions would beat Star and possibly kill him until Morningleaf gave in and would agree to become Brackentail's mate. But Brackentail now knew that Riversun was on Star's side, and would stop Brackentail. So first, the four stallions would carry Star and Morningleaf far away from Riversun. Then the rest of Brackentail's plan would take place. This was Brackentail's second attempt, but he will make sure he succeeds this time.
