It was in the afternoon and the sun remained hidden behind
the clouds. Blizzard, The black ponies and Luna walked in the
snow. It had been snowing on and off at times. There were very
few trees, all they saw were rocks and hills. Blizzard glanced
at Luna and saw she was hugging her body against Stardust from
the cold wind. Even though she was wearing a warmer cloak the
wind still managed to touch her shivering body.
Blizzard knew just how cold she felt, even he felt cold and yet
there was nothing he could do about it. It was just going to
get even colder.
The wind howled and the snow started falling making it hard to
see. Skyview held his head low and Starfire used his wings to
shield his legs from the cold.
"Stardust!" Starfire called to him in the loud roaring
wind, "We need to stop and rest, the wind is picking up
Stardust stopped, "Alright, I think we better." Starfire
took the yellow cloth from Stardust's bag and unfolded it. Then
he unzipped it and climbed inside with Stardust, Skyview, Luna
and Blizzard. The five of them huddled together as the wind began
to blow hard.
Luna hugged her father trying to get warm. Skyview, Starfire
and Blizzard hugged each other for warmth. They sat and listened
to the wind for an hour till it finally stopped. Stardust unzipped
the yellow cloth, letting everyone out. There was more snow than
there was before the wind started blowing. Blizzard stood looking
around at the snow. There was nothing to look at, only miles
and miles of snow everywhere he looked.
"Well the wind stopped, lets keep searching for Teriney,"
Starfire folded the yellow cloth and packed it in Stardust's
They began walking through the snow, passing a bare tree that
looked more dead than alive. The snow was deep at times and very
little snow in some places. Blizzard scanned the area as they
went up a hill. The snow beneath their hooves made them slip
a few times.
The sky was very cloudy and the air was quiet, not even the wind
was blowing. Their breaths pillowed out of their noses as they
breathed the cold air, their hooves made crunching sounds in
They walked up to the top of the hill and continued on through
the snow when Skyview heard a noise.
"Stop," Skyview told them.
Everyone stopped and looked at Skyview.
"I thought I heard something," Skyview muttered. He
listened closely but he couldn't hear it anymore, "I guess
it was nothing."
They began walking when Blizzard spotted him at the corner
of his right eye. He gasped surprisingly, "There he is!"
Everyone stopped and looked at what Blizzard was pointing at.
To their surprise it was Teriney in the distance on a cliff.
Fire appeared from his sides revealing leathery wings. He jumped
off the cliff and flew, diapering over the cliff side. Blizzard
ran up to the cliff with Starfire, Skyview, Luna and Stardust
behind him. Blizzard stood on the edge of the cliff looking around
but didn't see Teriney.
Starfire and Skyview reached the cliff, then Luna and Stardust.
"He was here," Blizzard told them.
"I know. I saw him too," Stardust replied, "There
no doubt about it. Teriney is here."
"So where did he go?" Luna asked looking over the cliff.
They looked around the valley below them and didn't see anything
moving or that was red.
"There," Starfire point north in the sky.
They looked up and saw Teriney flying over the snowy hills heading
"Why is he going that way?" Skyview asked, "There's
nothing out there. Just snow and more snow."
"What ever Teriney's reasons are he's heading that way and
that's where we are going," Stardust replied. He turned
and walked from the cliff heading north with Luna at his side.
His brothers and Blizzard walked beside him.
