The rest of the trip to the place Snow Herd lived during the summer was uneventful, and the patrol didn't find any more signs of Mountain Herd activity. Now Patchfeather waited impatiently for the rest of Snow Herd to arrive, although she was disappointed she wasn't going to see Dragonfrost for a few weeks because the walkers took longer to migrate then then the flying herd.
After two days of waiting, Patchfeather finally spotted Snow Herd flyers in the distance, but it a another half day until the herd arrived.
Patchfeather flew up to meet Smokemoon, who was closely followed by Pebblefrost. The purple winged filly looked like she was ready to collapse at any moment.
"Hi, Patchfeather!" called Smokemoon, as soon as she saw Patchfeather coming towards her.
"Hi, Smokemoon. Hi Pebblefrost." said Patchfeather.
The three landed, that was when Patchfeather noticed Smokemoon and Pebblefrost were being followed by a stallion. He was a palomino pinto, with white and brown wings.
"Oh, Patchfeather," said Smokemoon. "this is Lakefir." Smokemoon pointed to the palomino stallion.
"Smokemoon has told me a lot about you." said Lakefir.
Patchfeather looked at him, then she realized that when she had gone back to Snow Herd, Lakefir had been near where Smokemoon had been sleeping. Patchfeather was about to say something, when Beanwind came over.
"Patchfeather, do you have a minuet?" asked Beanwind.
"Umm... I guess so." said Patchfeather.
Smokemoon looked at Patchfeather skeptically, Patchfeather shrugged.
"Oh, and Lakefir, I need you to." said Beanwind.
Lakefir and Patchfeather followed Beanwind a little ways form Snow Herd, to a small clearing on the side of a hill. The first thing Patchfeather noticed was that all the pegasi form the patrol except Coldfire were there, in addition to six other steeds and Icewing.
"What's going on?" asked Patchfeather.
"Your becoming an official member of 'Legends on the making.'" answered a gray stallion, with orange wings.
"That's Stormender." whispered Beanwind.
Patchfeather glanced at Lakefir, his ears were pinned and he looked confused, "Why is Lakefir here?" whispered Patchfeather.
"He is also becoming a member." answered Beanwind.
"Does he know?" asked Patchfeather.
"No, why?" whispered Beanwind
Stormender was about to speak, when he was interrupted by the sounds of thousands of frightened pegasi.
