Dreams ~Chapter 1, Part 4~ "I see..." Blue replied, accepting his responsibility of the situation. "Can I ask you something...? Err...how much did you see?"
"I saw the whole thing while I was patrolling the border," Rubescent explained. "You two came out of nowhere, and I was all the way at the edge when it happened. The first thing I did when I got back was tell Wildfire." He gestured to the horse with long black mane who was scolding Scarlet.
"Then...where were their guards...?"
The amber-eyed pegasus tensed. While Blue hadn't spotted any on the other side, he also never noticed Rubescent in the distance. Seeking either of them out was the last of his worries at the time. If his uncle had been as attentive as he claimed, surely he would've seen the guards if they were there.
Before the other stallion could answer, Scarlet raised her voice with frustration. "If they wanted us dead,
Dreams ~Chapter 1, Part 3~ Blue left his cousin and walked to the southeastern side of the prairie where he lowered his head to graze, even though he wasn't hungry. The cause may be stress, boredom, or a combination thereof. All he knew for sure was that, while eating, he would be left alone out of respect.
He closed his reddish-brown eyes and tried to clear his head. The sound of his own chewing started to grate on his nerves. With a growl of frustration, he pulled away from the grass.
"I told you, it was an accident!" Scarlet's shout carried over from a fair distance away. Blue turned to see that her mother--a black horse--was giving her an earful. Did she decide to tell her parents after all? "I can't go back and change it, so what do you want me to do?"
"I'm just telling you to be more careful in the future," the dark mare shouted back.
Blue faced away again, not wanting to eavesdrop.
The Crimson River *Chapter 17, Part 3* Eclipse managed to sniff out another rat colony. His stomach growled from the smell... Then it churned. He tensed, a small sense of panic taking hold of him.
Someone dangerous was hunting there.
More options weighed against each other in his mind. If Eclipse waited for whoever-was-there to leave, they might catch him on their way out. But if he abandoned the newly-found colony, he may not be able to find another one... And time was of the essence.
Time? Well, it was better late than never, which would result from his death if precautions weren't taken. He'd come back to this colony after the threatening wolf was gone. In the meantime, he'd search for another one.
His thoughts wandered back to the one they had heard skulking around, and he wondered if that was the identity of the hunting canid. Eclipse hadn't sensed danger from them before, however the
Dreams ~Chapter 1, Part 2~ Blue and Scarlet landed at the edge of a prairie. It was small, but large enough for the few families who lived there.
A light red mare with white wings and mane cantered over to them. "Welcome back, you two!"
"Thanks, Aunt Cerise," replied Scarlet.
"You were gone longer than I thought you'd be. Did something happen?"
"One of us crossed the border today, by accident," Blue answered.
His mother frowned. "Did anyone try to hurt you? Are you okay?"
"We're fine... Nobody was there."
Cerise let out a relieved sigh. "That's good. Please, promise me you won't cross it again... I don't know what I'd do if either of you got hurt."
"Are you going to tell my parents?" Scarlet asked worriedly.
"So it was you who crossed the border?" The older mare grinned as her neice's eyes widened when
Dreams ~Chapter 1, Part 1~ Two pegasi soared through the clouds. They flew above the grasslands and over mountain peaks in a matter of seconds. Below them now was a forest with a trail leading to a field.
One, a stallion the same color as the morning sky whose white mane and wings were tipped with gold, immediately began to hover in place. "Scarlet, stop!" he cried when the other shot past him.
"Haha, I win!" Scarlet, a mare whose coat was accentuated by two shades of red, cheered from a fair distance ahead of him. Her cousin seemed to become more panicked by the second. "Blue? What's the matter?"
"Come back," he gasped. "We're not allowed past this point, remember?"
The other pegasus looked down, realizing he was right. She shrugged it off. "Alright, I'm coming. Hold on."
"Hurry!" Blue ushered. The speed of his wing-fl
Dreams ~Chapter 0, Part 2~ That afternoon, Flower casually trotted over to the waste den. It was between the Twisted Woods where her father was, and the Alicorn Trail which connected the unicorns to the pegasi's share of the land. She had practiced the spell on Aquamarine beforehand, and thanks to practice, she managed to make it last ten seconds at the most. That would be just long enough to dash from there to either one.
"Are you ready, Flower?" a greenish-blue unicorn asked, approaching from within the depths of the den.
"Did you start the rumor yet?"
"Yes. I've warned one of the day guards that you were planning on getting help from the pegasi to save your father, like you asked."
"Well, it won't work if you're hiding in here when you use it."
Aquamarine shook her head. "Illusions are a trick of the eyes. Your targets have to s
