His heart skipped a beat as he remembered descending from the cliff, hitting slick stone, hearing Fawnroot's terrified cries and feeling pain for her and in himself.
He closed his eyes for a moment, inhaling slowly. "What could I do? You were forcibly taking her away, against her will." He opened his eyes and the moment he did they flashed with fury and pain. "If you hadn't come, things wouldn't be this way. Your over-protectiveness of the mare is hurting her. You don't care what she thinks, so you do everything in your wretched power to tear her away from her desires! She's not JUST a medicine mare! She's not a tool! No one is. Fawnroot's a living, thinking, intelligent pegasus that has thoughts and feelings of her own. But you're too SELFISH to even care! For once, stop thinking of yourself, Hawkflight! Stop being a fool. You know you can't convert her, so why try?"
Callum rubbed his face. "And if you try to hurt me, you will probably prevail. And also prevail in hurting her as well. Why don't you let it go? It's may injure your ego a little bit. But that's not important. Let go of your pride! It does you no good. How about you start looking around you and see where your deceitful and selfish heart has led you. Look, Hawkflight, I would never try to hurt her. Ever." (BOOM BABEE)
Okay so Hawkflight and Callum are just roasting each other right now. Merrick and Kelly and Aaron (Merrick's father) Raven and Zayne are hanging in the library. Rayla is being told to rest by Ulrani.
She giggled. "I know right? Do you think this might have an owl or two?" She asked excitedly.
"Uhhh... well, she can't... because... she's too hurt," he replied. "You need to come to her." Teirron hoped that the old mare would believe him and follow him back to the pegasus mare he still didn't know the name of. (SOBZ NIGHTMISTTT)
