Emera looked at her with distaste finally noticing Fajer standing on the sand dune. She watched his black physique with love in her eyes and for him she would make one last attempt for their herd and for the life that grew in her belly.
Emera replied," Actually I have no wish to fight only for you to stay. I may have been a bit forward earlier but I was making my position as lead mare known and I was making sure you and the other would respect that instead you challenged me. I'm not sure what you think of me but I'm sure its the wrong idea. I do not want you as my slave only as a companion and fellow mare. I seem the way I am for a reason and you would be doing yourself a favor and others if you stay put with us. The stallion you run to is injured and well if you go to him now he is surely going to be dead as I'm positive Fajer will follow you. If you stay he may not be as likely to chase after the other mare. Therefore saving your bay from death"
She spoke in a calming voice trying to soothe not only herself but the other mare. She snorted and hoped these words would calm her into reason. She tossed her head sending a slight pain up her neck where the bite mark Ella had given her earlier. If she refused her she would return the favor
Fajer listened to Emera's words and slid down the sand dune by her side.
Ella, I am sorry for my words, I was full of myself. If you stay you and Emera will be the most important things in my life. I'd sacrifice my life for you two, even if that means handing you to another stallion. I just don't want either of you hating each other. Ella, Emera is not your master, she is a fellow mare and I'm glad she admitted it. You both mean a lot to me, if you go back to Ace, I understand, I have been a jerk, but please remember that I will give you the best security that he cannot give you. He spoke gently, stretching out his head to her, to show he would not harm her.
Then why were you and Ebony sneaking off at night? He nickered curiously.
He really didn't want to harm any of his mares. He feels like such a jerk for threatening her like she was a stallion. Poor Ella, all she wanted was some respect from his lead mare, and he threatened to kill her.

Emera snorted in reply.
"Well you must give it to get it my dear", she said. " We were both wrong but I don't recall you making any kind gestures of course I didn't because I am the lead mare in my last herd the new mares showed respect to the Lead mare by exchanging scents to show they excepted her you clearly do not know this custom but it will all be forgiven in time. "
She wasn't sure if Ella liked her but she just didn't understand the way she acted. She felt the safest close to Fajer. She still dreamed of Flame and it comforted her to know Fajer was there to make it ok again. She looked at Ella again waiting to see if she would throw her pride in the mud and exchange scents. She certainly expected her to after she had done the same. No matter how much Fajer wanted her to stay she wouldn't be the one to step forward first. It was not in her customs or beliefs.
Well you didn't exactly kindly great me ether ,she said angerly. Do you recall saying this?" hurry up! You better not try to run or you won't fare as well as your bay did."and then you smirked at us! she said even angrier.

She snorted "well I'm sure you would feel the same way if you were in heat and the actuallity of other mares coming into the herd possibly threatening your position. Fajer is the only one who has showed me such kindness since... " she trailed off at her words not sure wether she could trust ella.

Emera was losing patience with this mare but she replied, " do you wish the truth? Do you want to know why I act the way I do? Well let me explain it to you. I live in fear of a red stallion whom chases me. My father was the infamous black stallion and the Stud whom chases me battled my father for me alone. I was the heir to my father's herd and he sacrificed everything for me yet to have me stolen away. The stallion defeated my father and the last words with my parents i got was from my mother who watched my father battle not caring what happened to him or me. She told me she didn't care what I did to do with the stallion what I wish and to good riddance to me. My father's last words were mumbled because he was injured so badly. He told me to runaway and I fought Flame being as lucky as I am I escaped and found Fajer while I was in the desert. All of the other herds have shunned me. My past haunts me wherever I go. Even Fajer has heard of me but the other story apparently has not reached this part of the land about the crazed red stallion called Flame who haunts my shadow. I act this way because I know no other way to act. I live in fear of my life and now Fajer's. Do you wish to run off in the desert to find the crazed stallion who chases me? I know he is here I feel his presence in every step I take until I can't bare it anymore. She finished her last words nearly screaming.
She turned away from Ella and began to shiver uncontrollably." What do you think of me now?" she asked. " Am I so awful now that you know who I am? "
Fajer pushed hiz muzzle into Emera's neck. She had just recited her horrible past that should not be told to another soul for the sake of her sanity. When Fajer herd the words that Emera feels his presence, he stood closer to her, draping his head over her back. He hoped Ella would take it easy so Emera doesn't fall on the earth in salty tears. He pulled his neck away to face Ella.
