Hello! 🙂 Today I’ll be sharing my AAWC story, along with some news. 😛
Misty, I included a pegasus in my story, and I used the prompt word “bright.” 🙂
It is midnight. The forest is dark and foreboding, with no sound to be heard except the whispering of leaves in the breeze. The moon has slipped behind thick clouds, leaving the sky to become a thick, gloomy blanket of shadows.
In the woods below, a tiny nut-brown mouse peeks timidly out from between the fallen leaves. It’s sensitive whiskers twitch and tremble as it steps cautiously forward to nibble a fallen acorn.
Something moves nearby, and the mouse freezes, it’s body quaking. He vanishes silently back into the brush.
Just as the mouse disappears, something emerges from the trees, a deep aura of power radiating from the creature’s body. Four dark hooves trot softly through the leaves, and the creature’s sleek sides gleam as the moon peeks out from behind the blanket of clouds.
The horse moves quickly through the trees, as if drawn by some invisible force. He stops, ears pricked, at the sight ahead of him. A shimmering pool of water glistens in a small clearing, the water as clear as glass. Bright moonlight reflects off the surface, creating a silvery glow.
The horse trots forward, his ebony wings brushing against the trees as steps towards the pool. He lowers his muzzle to drink, his tongue savoring the cool, sweet water.
His reflection ripples in the water, dark as midnight, smooth as glass. He is a pegasus, the king of all winged creatures. The griffins and harpies obey his word, and even the great dragon will tremble at the mention of his name.
After a while, the horse fulfills his thirst. He turns away from the pool and drops to the ground to roll in the soft grass. After a while, he slowly clambers to his feet and shakes his thick mane with a satisfied snort.
He casts a final glance at the sparkling, rippling water before slipping silently away into the trees.
