The first part of the story Collaboration with my dear *Dark1lady
The earth under his hooves seams to shake like an earthquake as he run from the deep woods to the open plaine. He still hear the voice of his mother into his ears. <<Find him. Find Coldalo'naj. Run Izcariord, run as fast as you can and find him.>> His dear mother he left all alone at that cruel place. He knows that they will hurt her because she helpt him to escape, to run away and seek help to free her and all the other Icogans at the stable. Coldalo'naj, his uncle he's never seen before. His mother told him that her brother get sold very fast because they don't like him. And now he has to find him. He didn't know where he shall go, he just run. <<Don't think Izcariord.>>, he said to himself, <Run! Just run and your hooves will guide you to the right place.>> Only the stars are shining that night. It was newmoon so all the world was covered by darkness. The same darkness that covered his whole life since he was a foal. He has seen how the humans treated his mother. How they hurt her and tried to break her down. She struggled so hard but the shattered her heart into pieces. The killed his father to punish her because she tried to escape. He knows how much she loved that stallion. The killed him in a very brutal way and she had to look at it. All the blood that dyed the ground crimson when his father died. He still remeber every tear his mother cried and the more his mother get hurt the more he started to hate the humans there. He wanted to kill everybody who hurted his mother. To rip them into pieces and dye the ground with their blood. His heart was beating like a war drum but he can't stop running. <<I need to find him.>>, he said to himself.
Not far away at USV Cerberos was grazing together with his sisters. His father was gone with Nathalie and that dragon. <<Keep an eye on your siblings and protect them.>>, said Cold before he went away and Cerberos promised him that he wouldn't leave them alone until he will come back. For a moment he looked up and trew an eye to the other pasture where Phrionsa, Azi'ssa and Shandros where standing. Two small human shaped shadows by there sides. He knew who the are. He could smell it. Vincent and Louis, his master and his masters best friend. He was sure that they were talking to the mares and try to comfort Azi'ssa, who has lost her foal because of his blood thirst. He felt somehow sorry for her but he knows that it was to late to apologize. He just watched them for a while before he started to graze again.
Louis stand on the pasture, his back to the fence where Vincent was sitting on and his hands are holding Azi'ssa's head very gentle. The mare was crying again. She missed her foal so much. <<Shh.>>, he hushed into the mare's ear. <<Please don't cry. I'm sure your foal will be at the land of the dragons now. It had found his peace there and wouldn't suffer anymore.>> The mare looked up at the brown haired boy with her pupiless eyes full of sadness. Louis stroked her forehead very gentley. Vincent was sitting on the fence and observe them silently. Sometimes he wished he could understand what Louis was saying to the horses. He can't understand them. The only horses he can talk to are Abyssus, her six siblings and there offsprings. But that's nothing special because they are able to talk like humans. He isn't connected to the horses like Louis is. He's just a normal and boring boy like a million others are. Sometimes he wish to be special too. Louis looked up to his friend who's sitting on the fence. "Can you comfort her too? She's so sad.", he said to Vincent. The blond boy jumped off the fence and stroke the neck of the mare. "Can you tell her that I'm very sorry for all the things that Cer and the others did to her?"", he asked his friend. Louis just nodded his head and translated Vincent’s words to the mare. The mare snorrted softly. "She said that you don't need to apologize for the demon horse that belongs to you. You didn't order him to kill her foal, you tried to stop him and the others so it wasn't your fault.", Louis repated her words in human language. Vincent felt so sad for the mare who lost her foal because of his demon. So sad that he started to cry too. It was Phira who came over now to comfort the blond boy. She rubbed her head gently on Vincent's arm and snorted tenderly as he nestled his head up to her mane. <<Hush boy.>>, she whispered, <<It wasn't your fault.>>
Izcariord left the forest behind him. He followed the small river that seamed to guide him. Far away at the horizon he saw a stable. He didn't know why but he felt that he may find Coldalo'naj there. His steps became faster and he dashed trough the water like storm.
Cerberos lifted his head. He could feel that a stranger arrived at the stable grounds. He saw the stallion who ran along the road to the main house and reared ready to protect his siblings. The stallion came nearer but suddenly he stopped. Cerberos could see how the stallion looked over to the boys at the other pasture before he change direction and run over to them. Cer could feel that he want to attack them. Scared that Vincent will get hurt he left his sisters alone to protect the boy. He didn’t jump over the fence ,he just lower his head and shattered the wood with his horns. Even if he promised his father to protect his siblings, protecting Vincent will always be his first duty. He run along the road following the stallion in front of him.
Izcariord saw two boys near an Icogan mare who’s crying. He know that mare. It was Azi’ssa. One year older than him but they played together when they were foals. Did they hurt her? Izcariord could feel the anger in his viens. He run over to that pasture to protect his friend from them. He jumped over the fence and dash to them. Suddenly the boy who’s holding Azi’ssa’s turned his head and his eyes meet Izcariord’s. The stallion stopped so fast that he slided over the ground like the grass was made of ice. He looked at the boy in front of him. That dark brown hair and those violet eyes. He had seen them before. A few nights ago when took a rest near a small pond he dreamed of a boy with dark hair and violet eyes. He could still remember that dream. The boy was standing there right in front of him and smiled. With a tender voice he said, <<Find me. I’m waiting for you.>> and now he was really there. It wasn’t a dream this time. It was real. An old mare told him a story when he was a foal. He always thought it was only a fairytale. A story about the human you can meet in your dreams and who will be your soulmate for all eternity. He slowly came nearer, very carful and redy to run away if it became to dangerous. The boy leave Azi’ssa’s head and turned to him. Izcariord could see that they didn’t hurt her but tried to comfort her. He could also see Shandros behind them. He seamed to be very quiet and grazed just like there where nobody on the pasture with him and the mares. Izcariord was unsure what he shall do now. He still wanted to find Coldalo’naj but he couldn’t leave that boy. He was bonded to him in a special way that he can’t describe. Like the where connected with their souls. It wasn’t like the bond that Icogans have to their riders. Not like the magical bond or the immortal bond, it was something else but it was so strong. <<Who are you?>>, the boy suddenly asked him. Izcariord was afraid for a moment. That boy talked to him in his own language! Shyly he answered: <<I’m Izcariord of the Frozen Tears. Son of Naseaya. >> <<I’m pleased to meet you Izcariord of the Frozen Tears.>>, answered the boy friendly, <<I never thought that we meet each other so soon.>> The stallion looked at the boy and asked him: <<And you? Who are you?>> <<I’m Louis, a child blessed by the sea who may talk to the horses.>>,said the boy friendly. A child blessed by the sea. The stallion already heard about those children. The were known as the whisperers. Maybe that boy could help him. Help him to free his mother. He didn’t know why but he just said: <<I need your help. I need your help to free my mother. She’s imprisoned at the dark stable and I’m seeking for help to free her.>> << The dark stable?>>, Louis asked a bit confoused but suddenly Azi’ssa’s voice, wich came out of nowhere answered his silent question: <<Icogan Warmblood Stables. The place where I came from. I know his mother Naseaya. She’s a sister of Coldalo’naj.>> Louis listened to the mare. “Ehm…Louis?”, said Vincent a bit shyly like he was scared to interrupt them. “What are they saying?” “To much to translate it.”, Louis just answered. “But in very short. That’s Izcariord a nephew to Cold and he needs our help to free his mother form Icogan Warmblood stables. Oh and he’s the horse I saw in my dreams a few nights ago.” “Ah ok. Help him to free his mother? And how shall we do that? We are only teenagers and have no idea where we shall go and how we shall help them.”, said Vincent an lifted up his glasses. Louis closed his eyes for a moment. He always did that when he need to think about something. They need somebody how know more about that place and who will help them to help the horses. He suddenly hear a voice from not far away. “Oh no not the fence again…”, said a young man with long blond hair when he saw the hole that Cerberos left in the fence. “Why can’t they just jump over it?”, he sighed. Cerberos stands near to him. “Could you please jump over it next time?”, he asked the stallion. “I’m sorry. I need to hurry.” The demon answered. He stopped his attack when he saw that the stallion wouldn't hurt the boys and rest near the hole he made in the fence.
Louis and Vincent looked at each other, than to Izcariord and back to the guy near Cerberos. “Isn’t he from that stable?”, Vincent asked Louis. “I think I heard Madame Nathalie talking about him with my mother. Yes I think it’s he.”, the brown haired answered. “Than we need to ask him.”, said the blond boy and both boys climbed over the fence and walk over to the man and Cerberos. “Excuse me Sir.”, said Louis friendly and polite. The man looked up to both boys. “I think we need your help.”
