Layka stepped out into the cold, and looked at the rainbow of leaves on the ground.
She trotted up to Rex, "Hey sweetie" she said softly, and nuzzled him.
"What would you like me to help with today?" Her eyes were glowing with happiness.
She stared into the sky, they were in a little forest, this one had no Lydes though, it was a small quiet one. She looked at the cracks of light, seeping through the trees.
She stood quiet, awaiting Rex's verdict on the situation.
"Oh, Rex" she added in.
"I love you"

He put his head down to the lake for a drink, straggling water bugs skimming the surface. Soon there wouldn't be any insects; it'd be too cold in the winter. Winter. Layka's favorite season, Rex mused. He thought back to when she had her mood swings. All of the hurtful words. All of the hateful glares. Her looks could freeze anyone..

"Hey sweet-heart," a mare spoke into Rex's ear. She gave him a kiss, her lips lingering faintly on his cheek.
"Oh hi, Layka. I was just thinking about you," he said.
Layka smiled. "So what do you need to do today?" she asked, referring to his Alpha duties.
"Well, I have to visit each of the herds in Lake Territory. I need to catch up and see if there've been any lyde attacks. That might take a while; some of the groups are pretty high up in the mountains. So I'm guessing it'll be a few days. If you want, you could join me."
Layka's eyes glowed excitedly at the thought. "Of course! ..And, Rex? I love you."

Rex looked at Layka under the morning's rays. "I love you too." He moved forward and nuzzled her, putting as many words into it as possible.

Layka nuzzled him back, they must have been just standing there for like 5 minutes before she replied.
"I'd love to!" she said.
She thought about her and Rex's future.
"Rex," she started.
Don't ask, but, Its too late now, you already got his attention.
"Haven't you always wanted a foal?" she finally asked.
She walked around in circles and took a sip of water from the tiny creek, beside the lake filled with bugs.
"I mean-It's just, It would be so amazing to have a little one of our own" she was looking up at him, eagerly waiting for his approval, or declination.
It would be so amazing, our own little foal. Our own little world.

Rex's heart raced, he never wanted the moment to end. But alas, all good things must come to a halt.
"Hey.. Rex? Um. Have you ever thought about having a foal?" Layka spoke slowly and carefully.
Feeling a lurch in his stomach, Rex uttered out a reply, "A.. a baby?" His words stuttered.
"Don't you think that it would just be perfect? A little one to run around and chase after.." Layka gave a dreamy sigh. She watched Rex earnestly, awaiting his answer.
"Um. I suppose?"
He hadn't given it much thought; having a child with Layka. It seemed like such a crazy thing. Dutchess was the motherly one. Layka was the fashionista. It just.. wasn't right.
"I really don't know. I mean, if it's something you want, then of course. But don't you think that this is a little, um, fast?"
Rex shuffled his hooves, not liking the subject they were on.

Layka looked down quickly, and kept her eyes to the ground.
"yes, It is.. I'm sorry, I was just being foolish." She said sadly.
"I know, I guess I don't strike you as one to care for a foal," she started.
"Maybe your right" Layka stopped.
"Anyway, when shall we head off?" she said, quickly changing the topic.
Stupid Layka, Stupid stupid stupid...I know he still thinks of Dutchess, not me.
Layka stood there, still looking down at the ground.
Whatever Rex says, Goes.
I just, why did I ask that?! I guess..Maybe I just, don't strike people as a motherly horse...And they definitely don't think I care about them either.

She stood there, her gaze getting sadder and sadder upon the ground.
"I don't know why I am so offended," she confessed.
"People just always saw me as a monster."
"A beast"

"No, no! There's nothing wrong with it. I'm just.. nervous. There. I said it."
Rex nudged Layka, tilting her beautifully sad head up.
"I do, I really do want a kid. I'm just scared that I won't be enough for it. For you. What if something bad happens?" Rex's tone became worried.
He was terrified. Terrified of responsibility? Not really. Rex knew how to handle himself. He just didn't know how to be a father since he hadn't had one himself.

"And Layka, you're not a monster! Don't ever, ever, ever think that. You're amazing and gorgeous and sweet and caring. And I love you just the way you are, even if you're somewhat a diva." Rex added a little teasing laugh on the latter.
His voice then dropped to a whisper, "Anyway, you're perfect. Don't doubt yourself."
Rex looked encouragingly into her eyes.

"I love you too." she whispered, looking into his eyes.
"Maybe we should wait some time, I guess your right." Layka admit.
"Shall we go to the other herds?" she asked.
Rex nodded, and they went on towards another herd.
Layka slowed to a trot as soon as Rex did, awaiting his next order.

As they neared the first group of equines, Rex immediately knew disaster had struck only days before. Members were lying- blood covered- on the hard ground, wincing with every movement. Other, horses, albeit healthy, had a sorrow aura hanging around them. It was obvious that a lyde attack had taken place.

Rex galloped up to the leader of the injured herd and asked tersely what exactly had happened. The other stallion spoke, wary of the alpha stallion. This would be the first time Rex had interacted with the longtime residents of Region 2, and he wanted to make a good and responsible impression.

As the other leader explained the events, Rex glanced over the rest of the scene. Mares hurried, attempting to aid the injured. Stallions gathered together, discussing helpless tactics to override the unbeatable lydes. Children lie solemnly together, no flicker of fun in their faces. Rex thought fleetingly of his and Layka's conversations about foals. Let's see how she reacts..
He wasn't sure how she would respond to the colts and fillies, nor her fellow mares. They all had a weather-beaten, tough look. Wouldn't this be the first time Layka's seen the effects of the lydes? Rex wondered.

Layka stopped almost immediately when she saw the scene.
"Oh my god!" she she said quietly to Rex.
"How on earth did this happen!?" she was panicking, whatever It was, she didn't want it to attack anymore horses.
She saw injured horses, gloomy horses, guarding horses, and sad little foals, some of which were seriously injured.
"what happened-b-but what.." she was shaking
"Who did this?!" she screamed quietly to Rex, so nobody else would be alarmed
"And why?!" she was freaking out in her mind.
GET CONTROL OF YOURSELF LAYKA
"Rex, what would you like me to do" she was very serious, and knew there wasn't much she could do..but she was willing to do anything Rex needed her help of, anything to help these poor horses.

"Lydes," Rex said simply to Layka. "They're horrible creatures. I'll tell you about them when we go home."
Layka shook, horrified at what the animals Rex had deemed 'lydes' could do. "What can I do??" she asked, wanting to help wherever she could.
His eyes drifted back over the sad, pitiful foals. "Help them.." he said quietly. It pained Rex to see the young, innocent children hurt. But his attention was sucked back to the leader of the herd. "See you in a bit, Layka." The two stallions walked away to discuss further plans.

Layka nodded as Rex walked away, she walked up to the foals.
The poor foals looked so scared, But Layka was determined to make them feel better.
"hello!" she said cheerfully, The foals just stared at her.
"Look at the beautiful sun today!" she exclaimed, trying to make conversation.
She layed down beside the foals, trying to protect them from 'Lydes'
"You know," she started
"You guys are a lot braver then I could ever be!" she was trying to catch their attention, and make them feel better. The foals were glancing up at her now. "Would you like to hear a story?" she asked. The foals nodded. She told them a story, about princes and princess', about the brave knight fighting off the dragons, she told them about all her favorite fairytales she heard, while growing up.
After she finished, the other foals took turns, telling their own fairytales, Layka smiled.
I'm glad they're happy now, It's so sweet seeing them all cheery.

"..And contact Makivis," Rex finished. He breathed a sigh of relief, finally done speaking to the heavily scarred stallion. His eyes ranged over to Layka; she was lying on the ground, crowded by giggly foals. Rex smiled. Maybe I jumped the gun, thinking she wasn't motherly.. She wants a filly or colt. I should at least give it a try.
He trotted over to her, grinning down at the talkative children. "Hey guys! So we're bringing the big tough horses down here to guard your herd from the lydes, so you guys will be safe," Rex said to the cluster. "Layka and I need to go now though, but we'll visit again soon." He winked and then nudged his other half, signaling to leave.

Rex looked sideways at Layka as they walked away. "You sure got those foals in a good mood.. It's like you have a magic touch" he said laughingly. But then his tone turned more serious. "So it seems I was kind of close-minded earlier, when we were talking about maybe having.. um. Kids. Together." Timidly, Rex's eyes dropped to the ground. "I thought it about it some more, and if it's what you want then I want it to."

He paused and turned to look at her. How did I get so fortunate to get a girl as amazing as Layka? In a rush of affection he stepped closer to her and kissed her, nuzzling her passionately in the afternoon sun.

As Rex approached, saying it was time to leave, Layka said her final goodbyes to the foals and smiled "See you all again!"
Rex started talking as they got further. He brought up the foal topic and Layka thought it was going to be something she didn't want to hear. But she was wrong, Rex said If she wanted a foal, then he wanted one too.
Suddenly he kissed her, she looked up at him dazed.
"what would we name the foal?" she asked him after just standing there like an idiot for a while.
"Oh, and Rex," she added in, knowing he would know the answer to her question
"I love you"
A foal, our own little family..I just can't get the thought out of my mind, It would be so amazing, and we could teach our foal all the best, not to make the mistakes that I did for sure. The foal would grow up in a safe environment, and It would be just PERFECT

He fondled Layka, breathing in the lovely scent of her coat. Like roses.. Rexist thought absentmindedly.
Crisp grass swayed in the breeze. They had finally made it back to the little field that had been considered as home. Rex looked towards Layka once again. "I really, really love you," he whispered. They started caressing each other sweetly, but then began to get more passionate. The two horses nuzzled their way into a more secluded area of trees..

[OOC: K. They be makin' a baby. Woop-dee-doo~]

Morning had risen, and Rex found himself sprawled across the ground, Layka to his right. Memories of the previous night came flooding back; things had gotten intense with her. Did I make the right decision? Doubts started creeping into his mind. We're not even official mates! What if we're shunned? Rex leaped up.

His head lowered to the lake he'd trotted to. I hope Layka responds positively.. Rex aspired, thinking about what he was going to ask.

[Bad post is bad. Sorry ._. ]

Layka woke up, memories of last night left her feeling guilty, but she was also excited to have a foal.
She looked at Rex, dazed from what had happened.
Layka got up and walked over to him. "Morning" she said sweetly
"How are you?" she asked him
Layka thought about things for a minute, she still wanted to be friends with Dutchess, and remembered their last horrid experience together.
She shook the thought away, and just thought about Rex.

She took a sip from the river, and the water was getting colder and colder each day, It was fall now, she looked up into the bright blue sky above thinking of what she would do in the future, what would happen...

Layka walked over toward the old wilted tree, full of dandelions from her previous days, full of hate. She took off the dead dandelions, and remembered everything that had happened in those few crazy days, all the insane things, but she had Rex now, and that was all that mattered.

Rex stared at the water, looking at his reflection. I wonder what a little me would look like.. The thought gave Rex an odd feeling. Happy? Maybe. Excited? For sure. But there was still the silent nag.. I'm gonna do it, he decided.

"Good morning," a lovely voice spoke into Rex's palomino ears.
"Layka, hey."
"How are you feeling?" Layka asked.
Any concern Rex had felt melted away at her words. His heart did a flip-flop as the beautiful mare walked over to him. "I'm okay, Layka. Actually no. I'm more than okay. I feel on top of the world. Want to know why? Because I'm with you."
The stallion lowered his head to his pale pink hooves. Rex picked up a shimmering cord in his mouth and brought it up to their eye levels.

A mauve bead and a gold one stuck together on the string, light shining off of them. "The gold is for you, to match your beautiful eyes. And the purple is supposed to be me. The cord represents our family. Maybe we'll add to it, maybe not. I just know that I will never ever let this," Rex looked down at the hair piece. "..Slip away. I want to spend the rest of my life with you, Layka. I want to be the one that you look to for comfort, for love. For everything."

Rex gently slipped the bead adorned string into her forelock. He stepped back and looked at Layka, adoration gleaming in his eyes.

Layka looked at the hairpiece, happiness filled her eyes, and Rex's sweet works covered her mind. Every worry was gone.
"My god Rex!" she started
"This is beautiful! Its the absolute sweetest thing anyone has done for me" she smiled and nuzzled him.
She just stood there admiring Rex, and the necklace.
"I love you" she whispered.

Dutchess watched the two horses from a distance. She could see Rex putting something around Layka's neck. It glistened in the sunlight, making her heart sink. This should have been me, Rex should be putting that around my neck she thought, letting a tear slip from her eye. She quickly regained herself before she started bawling again. That was all she had done after Rex had left her.

She slowly wandered over to the two. Her hooves dragged along the ground miserably. She approached them, putting a fake smile on her face. "Hi guys" he muttered. She was lonely, she had no friends here. She spent most of her time crying in a concealed place where no one could find her.
"How is everything?" she asked them, noticing the beads around Layka's neck. That must have been what Rex had given her, what should have been mine. She looked down at the ground, embarrassed.

She let her eyes briefly drift upwards. She looked at the two horses, more towards Layka. Her body was larger than it used to be. No, no, no! I can't be! NO! She felt like she was going to explode, like her head was going to detach from her body and go haywire. "Uhm, uh" she stammered, lost for words. She wanted them both to leave this place, forever, she never wanted to see them again.
"Uhm" she stammered again, her voice breaking.

She looked up, tears dripping down her face now, she couldn't hold them back. She was furious. She pinned her ears against her skull and directed her eye contact to Rex. "I hope you're happy Rex! Good luck with your family, because you sure as hell are gonna need it!" she yelled at him, fuming.
"I never thought that you could be this god damned low! And as for you..." she screamed, now directing her fury at Layka.
"...I sure as hell hope that you are never going to go back to your horrid ways, and I hope that your foal doesn't end up as horrible as you were." Tears were falling from her eyes at a constant speed, no way of holding them back.
"I NEVER WANT TO SEE ANY OF YOU AGAIN! I HATE YOU BOTH!" she screamed at the top of her lungs before galloping off towards the other side of the region. She wanted to get as far away from them as she possible could.

Layka and Rex's lips met. When they broke apart, he stared into her shining gold eyes. Rex was so, so excited to live his whole life with Layka, and maybe even have many children.
Movement entered the corner of his iris and he turned his head. Dutchess was standing a few feet away, looking extremely uncomfortable. "Hey there," she greeted. "How have you guys been?" Her eyes were red and puffy. When they found Layka's forelock, in which resided Rex's gift, Dutchess lowered her head in sadness.

The stallion had not noticed and replied bouncily, "Everything's great, Dutch! Layka is, well.. expecting. Isn't that awesome?" Rex glanced over at the ringlet-ed mare and gave her a flirty smile.
But to his horror, Dutchess did not respond well at all. She let loose a torrent of hateful words and curses, screaming the whole time. Rex's ears pinned against his head. He'd hadn't heard something so loud since his days in the car-filled city of Hollywood.

"DUTCHESS!!" Rex managed to get out over her shrieks. Why did she have to go crazy all the time?! he thought angrily. "You need to shut up and chill. It's not my fault I felt so tethered when I was with you. A guy needs to breathe. And I've seen you around with that Sagitta. I'll bet he's just jumping in excitment to hear your bawl every other night. God knows what he thinks of me now, since he's only heard your side of the fucking story!"

Not to Rex's surprise, Dutch began to cry. He rolled his eyes, but then annoyance turned to outrage. She began to attack Layka verbally, cursing her soon-to-come foal. "You leave her alone," Rex growled. His voice turned quiet and slow. An obvious danger point. The setting sun shone on the alpha's hooves as the moved in front of Layka, as if protecting her from Dutchess' harsh dialogue.

What happened to her? Rex thought in contemplation of Dutch's vicious behavior. You used to be so sweet and caring and vulnerable. But now you've turned into a.. monster.

Layka stared at Dutchess.
She thought of how horrible everything must be for her.
Letting the words Dutchess screamed at them linger in her mind, she couldn't help but feel everything that had happened here, was her fault, she couldn't help but feel like a monster.
"Dutchess..." she started
"I'm really sorry, I never knew you would get this upset" she looked down, then back up at Rex.
