"Dad..." I croaked. There in front of me lay a canine creature. "It's a canine...?" He nodded. "Why do I need to see this?" It was white and long and small and had patches of beigy brown on its body. It was sniffing the area. It had an orange face and a star and a snip. "Because," he said. "It's domesticated. Which means... it belings to the Landwalkers. They've tamed it. Look at that weird purple thing around its neck," he said. I sighed. He had a point. If it wasn't domesticated, why would it have a weird leathery purple ring around it's neck? Then I saw it had a bone-shaped golden tag around the weird leathery ring that read: "Lilly?" I asked my father. He nodded. Then he looked at the sky. It was getting dark. He looked at me and I gasped. I needed to get into position! "What do we do with it?" Pepeleaf asked my father. "We take it back, now, Starsong," my father lowered his voice, "GO." he whispered. I nodded. I dropped Pepeleaf off at his place and raced toward my place in the bushes. It was nearly midnight. Brackentail was already there, wating for his arrivals. I turned invisible and jumped up onto a tree silently and motionlessly. I had gotten a good spot and I could see everything around me. Finally, Riversun and Stormtail glided in and landed gracefully-well, Riversun more than Stormtail. As soon as the meeting began, Riversun pranced. "I can't take it any longer!!! I NEED STARSONG!!" She brayed. "SHUT UP!" Brackentail winnied in terror. Their cries echoed off the walls. Riversun snorted. "Your fault for picking the worst meeting place in history. Tomorrow, we go some place better. The falls." She said. "Whatever. You'll have Starsong in no time. In fact, you can have her right now. And her sire; they'll never expect an attack so quickly." Brackentail said. Riversun considered this for a while, then snorted. "Yes! Let's do it!" She said. "Okay, but we have to wait. In a thicket, until EVERYONE is asleep." Stormtail suggested. Riversun snorted. "Okay. Fine. We attack at midnight." I quickly checked the moon. Not midnight yet. Then i recited a quick prayer to the Ancestors... and to Waterwing, the legendary OverStallion of Lake Herd. "Okay," Brackentail said as they galloped toward the thicket with me buzzing behind them. "Let's do it." I threw my head to the skies. "Please, Ancestors, Waterwing, help me."
