"Hopefully no one is outside." Moonwind snorted while looking outside the cave. "The silver lightning might be here soon." Ashriver nodded. "Its getting dangerous." Suddenly the mare perked her ears and turned around, noticing Springblaze and Darkstone staring at Cloudflame. Springblaze walked over to Ashriver and whispered. "Who is this?" Ashriver nickered. "Cloudflame, meet my sister Springblaze and her friend, Darkstone." Cloudflame perked his ears. "Darkstone? That sounds familiar." Windstorm's eyes widened, and he spoke in a worried voice. "I think you two have met each other before..." Darkstone looked at Cloudflame and suddenly reared. "I know you! You threw me into a lake near a bear and left me to die!" Cloudflame's eyes widened and he reared too. "That's only because you fled when you heard something in the bushes, leaving me to fend for myself! I threw you into the lake as your payback!" The two stallions reared again and charged at each other. "Whoa! Cloudflame! Darkstone! Calm down!" Ashriver whinnied. She looked at her sister. "Get Darkstone." Springblaze nodded and flew in front of Darkstone and started to calm him down. Ashriver bolted into a gallop and charged Cloudflame. Since the 3 year old stallion was so large, Ashriver knew she couldnt fly in front of him or he could crush her on impact. The mare ran as fast as possible and rammed into Cloudflame's shoulder, making him fall. Ashriver went head first, which was a mistake. Her head spun and she lost her balance, falling next to Cloudflame. The large stallion stood up and shook the dirt off his coat. "Ashriver! What was that for?" The mare snorted and stood. "To stop you. There's no need to have fighting stallions in a small cave." Cloudflame snorted and turned to Darkstone, ears pinned. "The flat hills by the ocean. We'll finish this." Darkstone turned away from Springblaze and pinned his ears. "Agreed. Meet tomorrow at dawn." Both stallions turned away from each other and snorted. Ashriver walked over to Windstorm and whispered. "Why do these guys hate each other?" Windstorm snorted. "When they were foals, Darkstone really liked this filly. But so did Cloudflame. Once they realized they both wanted the filly for themselves, they started to fight a lot." "Sounds like you and Moonwind.." Ashriver mumbled. Windstorm ignored her. "One time they were fighting by a lake and a bear came. Like Cloudflame said, Darkstone fled, then Cloudflame threw him into the lake. The only way Darkstone survived was because patrol's saw him and attacked the bear." Ashriver nodded. "How do you know this?" Windstorm looked at her. "I watched them. But when i noticed the bear going for Darkstone I told the patrol's." "Ohhhhh.." Ashriver said. "Yeah, it wasnt very cool. They both got in a lot of trouble. They never saw each other again, until now." Ashriver nodded again, then looked outside the cave. "Do you think more pegasi will come here?" "No.. why?" Windstorm asked. "Because there are two mares walking inside now."
