Heart and his close friend Winter wandered the riverbank, the breeze flowing in their mane and the sweet grass along the banks filling their bellies.
It was a very content evening until a stallion and his herd of mares came, and Winter had caught his eye...
The stallion approached Winter with luster in his eyes, hardly noticing Heart was standing there. This stallion circled Winter, showering her with compliments about her beauty. This made Heart’s eye twitch with rage. He appeared before the stallion when he said “Come and join us.” “Excuse me,” Heart spat, standing in between them with narrowed eyes, “But she isn’t really yours to take.” The stallion tilted his head, “Says who?” He asked. Heart bared his teeth, “Says me, moron.” Heart noticed the stallions muscles tense, his expression turning hostile. He snorted, “Is she your mate?”. “Well....no,” Heart stuttered, “But she’s-“
“Free then?” The stallion smirked, going to walk past Heart. Heart pinned his ears and shoved the stallion away, “No, she is not!”
The stallion recovered and glared up at Heart, one of his mates running to him and checking if he was okay. He reassured her before looking back at Heart, “What is you’re name?”
“It’s Heart.” Heart replied, swishing his tail with anger.
The stallion chuckled, as if making fun of his name, “Tell me then ‘Heart’,” The stallion drug his hooves in the dirt, “are you willing to fight for her, since you don’t want me to have her?” Heart glanced back at Winter, her eyes telling him no, “It’s not worth it.” She mouthed. But Heart ignored her, turning back to the steed. Winter was his friend, and if he had to take a few blows and broken bones to keep stallions like ‘him’ away from her, he was willing to.
Heart nodded his head, “Yes.”
