PostSubject: Now Im lying on the cold hard ground   Sat 10 Nov 2012 - 21:09

Layka stamped her hooves hard on the ground, breathing heavily.

This wouldn't have happened If I hadn't wanted something I didn't need.

She walked over to the water and fixed up her mane and tail, her daily routine begging, this time she was taking more time on herself. She was going to have her foal soon, and all she could do was nonstop worry. Walking over to the freezing water, gazing up at the sky she remembered. Winter.
Her happiness and joyful memories couldn't break her stress and frustration though.

"GOOD FOR NOTHING!" she screamed in the distance, Her anger swelling up.

Why is this happening to me! It THOUGHT it would be perfect, but clearly, I was WAY off. First all this happens, then my mother dies!

"IDIOT!" she shouted, to the same distance as before. Any horse with a good mind would know to stay away from her.

She paced around in stiff circles, cornering quickly, dragging her hooves through the ground, puffs of smoke coming from her nose.
She stopped and looked up,
snow.

"Finally something GOOD comes in my direction" Layka settled down and was laying in the snow. She glanced up at the snow filled sky.

Like little stars falling everywhere, mine, all for me, for all the bad things that have happened, taking some weight off of me for once.

Bapoto stomped through the area, looking around. His steps elegant yet powerful, the bells on his herbs pouch tinkling as he walked. His ears pricked up when he heard another horse screaming, it sounded like a mare, and a very angry one too. He walked on to the sound of the voice, his piercing eyes searching. Then he saw her, she was gorgeous, twirly hair that shimmered so perfectly and her coat was so pretty with it's pink hues. He noticed she was bearing a foal and wondered who the lucky stallion was. He walked over to her, curios as to why she was mad.

Layka glanced over to see another horse approaching her.
"what do you need" she called over gloomily.
Layka layed down in the snow, and glanced at all the individual snowflakes.
"No two are alike" she whispered to herself, and her unborn foal.
"Just like all the horses over here"

She started breathing slower and softer, almost drifting into a deep sleep, until she realized that she had tasks and work to do.
she got up, and shook the snow off of herself, and stood there looking at the other horse who had fully approached her.

Rex lied upon the hard autumn ground, nursing his wounds from the fight with Thunder. "Good for nothing scoundrel," he grumbled. Rex had lost track of his mate but the sound of a distressed mare tickled his ears. Layka, he thought happily. Although she was in obvious pain from being pregnant, Rex couldn't help delighting in the warmness that spread through his body at the thought of raising a foal with her. His legs rose shakily and Rex was pleased that they were pretty much okay. Except for some bruises and a couple of blood-stained areas in his coat, he was healthy. Nothing that a crisp wade into the lake couldn't fix!

He cantered a few hundred yards to the beautiful, wide bellied mare. Rex's ears flattened against his purple mane in reaction to her shrieks. "Baby, what's wrong?" he said smoothly to her. His nose nudged her neck comfortingly. When Layka lowered herself upon the ground, Rex did the same. He settled his head on her back, content. "Is there anything I can do for you?"

Rex's gaze lifted to a strange stallion. He didn't remember interrogating the newcomer; perhaps he was from a region two herd. The stallion's markings intrigued Rex, they reminded him of a tiger from distant lands. "Hello, who are you?" he asked curiously.

[Crap. You replied before I could lol.]

Layka moved over, closer to Rex.
"look at the snow" she said quietly, distracted from the rest of the world.

She got up and raised her head in the air, letting out a white puff of air. Layka kicked some snow onto Rex and laughed. She dropped her head down to his and nuzzled him.

"Rex, you know I'm going to have my foal in a few weeks, right?" she sighed. "A winter baby" she looked up at the snow.

"We should start thinking, of a name, for her, or him, whatever the gender." then she paused.
"wait, what If we have twins? I know Im sounding insane, but just think, its a possibility"

She then again nuzzled him, and resumed kicking snow at him, chasing him around and laughing.

He looked around and indeed it was snowing; albeit lightly. Rex chuckled at how excited Layka was by the frosty flakes. Clumps of the white snow were kicked into his face by the mare and he laughed again. "You're so silly! And yes, I suppose it would be wise to start planning.. But let's cross that bridge when we come to it." Rex sort of wanted to drive the conversation off of him and Layka, for Bapoto was still right there. He didn't want to ignore or offend him. "So where did you say you were from?" Rex asked the stallion.

Bapoto was surprised the pregnant mare could be so playful, he would have thought it would be hard with a foal in her to weigh her down. "My name is Bapoto, I come from Africa in search of a new home, I have just relocated to the region recently." His voice was smooth like silk but deep with a slight drawl that sounded much like a tiger's growl. He seemed gentle yet dangerous, his piercing orange eyes staring at them with curiosity. "Is this your mate? She sounded quite angry a few moments ago."

thilo sat on an above hill watching the horses mingle. they looked like a nice herd, maybe a herd someday he could join. he wouldn't want to be rude, juts barging it. so he just sat. and watched. he was getting old, and his vision was going dull. he was about 300 feet away from the horses. he noticed layka. and by his best judgement he thought he saw two stallions as well. he ran to the herd. he cleared his throat and grumbled 'hello?'

[guys i am horrible at rpg, dont judge! and also i hope i didn't like barge into your conversation :p]

Bapoto's head whipped back quickly to the sound. "Why hello there." He said, looking the stallion up and down. He didn't seem dangerous, in fact this stallion seemed old, he wondered if he was an old herd member in these parts. He walked towards the stallion, the bells on his pouch shaking with each step.

Layka stopped chasing Rex around in the snow
"Hello" she greeted the older stallion.
And then resumed to kicking snow onto Rex and laughing playfully.
"Who are you?" she stopped once again, and asked the stallion who had just arrived.

Diamond stayed hidden behind tree, not wanting to barge in. Do I? Then maybe have a herd? Or stay a loner? She was tired of waiting and decided to introduce herself. Hey, I dont mean to intrude, but I'm Diamond. Your Rex, right? I met you not long ago. She approached the other horses, kicking up snow.
{Sorry its so suckish. In lil bit of a hurry so quick intro =]}

Stellaerk was just wandering around the region, as he didn't know where Stella had disappeared to when he came across the large group of horses. Layka, Rex, who are these other horses? He thought excitedly. He loved meeting new people. He wasn't sure if he should approach the herd, as he wasn't sure if they were having a important conversation or not. He decided to risk it. He slowly wandered up the the group, making sure to let them know that he was there. "Hey guys" he said, aiming it more towards Rex and Layka. He looked at the other horses that he had never seen before but did not say anything. He wanted to make sure that it was okay for him to be there before he said anything else. He felt the snow landing in the tip of his nose, making him shake his head. He hated the snow, it was always so annoying and wet. He let out a grumble as he thought of the fact that winter was fast approaching and that he was going to be freezing cold for the next 3 or so months.

Diamond was excited to see so many horses. She looked the stallion up and down. Hello! I'm Diamond. You are? Just as she finished speaking, snow fell in a big clump from a limb hanging above her. She had to keep her cool around a new herd even though it was hard having a bunch of icey snow on her back.

{Sorry its not that great. Still getting the hang of RPing =)}

Rex nodded, impressed. "Yes, Layka is my mate. I suppose the effects of the pregnancy are making her a bit.. Different." He smirked in a laughing way and looked in the mare's direction. "And Africa, huh? That's pretty far away. I'd like to hear more of your story sometime. It sounds fascinating." The alpha gave Bapoto a smile. The way the Morgon's eyes sparked and voice rumbled unnerved Rex, but only slightly. He'd been around much more daunting horses before. He decided to treat Bapoto with respect, and hopefully would receive some in return.

The entrance of a newcomer turned Rex's head away from the tall Morgon. It was a fellow Arabian, albeit an aged one. Rexist did not recall interrogating this stallion for admission into his beloved territory, so he assumed that he was from an old herd in Myst. "Hello," Rex greeted rather boredly. The presence of this new horse did not excite or overly induce him. But then again, the purple haired stallion often wrongly judged books by their covers. He made a mental note to try to quit that habit, of jumping the gun and evaluating others.

Before Rexist could say anything more, two more equines joined the herd. He recognized them both as Diamond and Stellaerk. "Hey guys. No, you're not interrupting anything, Diamond. How have you two been?" Rex's gaze flitted over the mare, taking in her appearance. Big teal eyes stuck out against her appaloosa coat, and he could swear he spied an imprint of a.. crystal? on her lower body. Very elegant, Rex admired. Then he glanced at Stellaerk, the youngest horse of the group. He still thought that the youthful Trakhener looked exactly like the night sky. When Stellaerk twitched in reaction to the fierce cold of the snow, Rex related. Winter wasn't his favorite season either. It was too chilly and dismal, but for the sake of Layka he tried to pretend otherwise. The corners of the stallion's mouth lifted upward in a mischievous smile.

Stellaerk approached Diamond cautiously, pushing the snow off her back with his nose, getting it up his nose. He took a step back and stomped , then rearing up slightly and the snow froze his nose. He grumbled again. "I'm Stellaerk, nice to meet you." he said blandly, although feeling bad afterwards. Snow just put him in a terrible mood. "I must admit, winter is not my favourite season, I prefer summer, can always see the night sky." he said to Rex.
"And I'm alright, thank you for asking Rex, although I can't seem to find Stella. But it doesn't matter, how are you guys?" he asked, looking around at Layka.

He stood there and shivered as a cool wind began to pick up. He released a low grumble from the back of his throat, his mood getting worse by the snowflakes landing on his head and nose. He was not looking forward to the Winter. "I'm cold" he mumbled, all happiness leaving his body. He hoped that the herd would move somewhere where it wasn't as cold and there was no snow, but he doubted that they would, with Layka being so happy around the snow. Rex would want her to be happy and he respected that, but he hoped that he would do what is best for the other herd members too.

His mind had wondered back to Stella, he wondered where she was, whether she was enjoying to snow or whether she hated it just as much as he did. He wanted to go find her, but he didn't want to seem creepy, although he had already made that impression on her. He was really trying to patch up what he had so quickly ruined and he didn't want to jeopardize it.

Bapoto started to tense up, he wasn't a big fan of crowd's. He sighed, turning his head to the sky and letting the snow fall on his snout. This 'snow' was new to him, he didn't have such a thing in Africa. He turned to Rex. "I'd be happy to tell my story later on, and possibly help with your moody mare." His thunderous voice boomed as he chuckled, taking out some herbs from his puch and setting them next to Layka. "Those should help you cheer up." He smiled, although he seemed dark and powerful, his smile was warming and he seemed to not be harmful. ((Gah I can't keep up with ya guys. x.x))

Diamond carefully slid away from the tree so she wouldn't get dumped on again. "It's nice to meet you, Stellark. Thanks for getting the snow off my back," she gave the young stallion a cheerful smile. "I hate winter as well; it's too cold for me." she stomped her foot to display her anguish. "Hello Lyka, Thilio and Bapototo, nice to meet y'all!" She glanced over at Rex and Layka, "And congratulations on your foal!" Diamond examined the rest of the horses horses from left to right, learning her new surroundings. She was intrigued by them. All had outstanding markings, she had no idea if she would fit in- a basic dappled grey appaloosa cross with teal braids and an artificial diamond brand. Not too exciting compared to them. It didn't take her long to notice Stellark shivering. In an act of kindness, she gently walked over next to him, keeping the wind from hitting his body. It didn't phase her through her thick winter coat. "There you go! Still cold?" Diamond grinned.

(sorry for not replying and sorry for this bad reply, in computer banned and I'm writing this from my phone -.-)
all the talk about hating the snow was making Layka a bit sad, but she tried her best to ignore it, and instead pranced around as though nobody else was there, and she knew she was going to get some weird looks but ignored it anyways.

There were so many horses here, that they had cancelled out all the cold, and Layka stepped away from all of them and just layed down in the snow again.
"I love the cold" she said admittingly to those who hadn't already known.
"I love the snow even more," she let out a puff of smoke.
"I also love the cold hard ground, the icy winds, awakening me and sending me back to reality...from summer and spring and all in between" she glanced up at Rex and smiled.
"we still need a name for the foal, anyone care to help?" Layka asked eagerly.

Diamond watched Lyka frolic in the snow. It looked like fun to her, if only it wasn't cold. Snow brought back horrible memories. Flashbacks of wandering a large range of snow, seeming to go on forever when she was alone as a foal. She recalled thinking she would die from hypothermia or be attacked by other wild animals. All the thoughts sent chills down her spine. It was during a blizzard when her parents left her, almost as if they wanted her to die. Diamond awakened from her thoughts when Lyka asked for foal names. I have many ideas! What would you like? Something fancy, simple, sweet? she plopped down in the soft, icy, snow to engage in the conversation.

"I was thinking of Soley, but I'd like to hear other names" she admit.
"I want her to have a different name, unique and special, a name that hasn't been heard"

"Oh, what a wonderful name!" Soley... Diamond marvels in her mind. "I may come up with a couple ideas even though they aren't nearly as great as Soley. Acacia was a mare i once met. I always adored her name." She pondered for a few moments. "Elusive is one that comes to mind."
{OOC-Ill probably come up with some more =] }
