The bay paces anxiously, his hooves beginning to wear a circular track close to the main entry point of his home. Caught up in his worry over Morraine's departure to the Foaling Quarry, Caradoc fails to notice that Blaine, who had been keeping vigil with him, had gotten bored and dozed off, napping in the shade of an elm tree. The stallion was glad to be back in Border Springs, gladder still that Morraine had forgiven him for leaving her alone, so abruptly. And quite surprised that she still trusted him enough to bear another child and increase their family's size. He knew that the Gypsy Vanner was strong, sturdy, and that he shouldn't worry about birthing problems, especially since she had not had any with their firstborn. But she is dear to him, and Caradoc can't help but fret. What would he do if fate turned the tables on him, and it was now the mare who never came back? He shakes his head, refusing to allow such a thought. Morraine would come back soon, healthy and with a new foal in tow. He was sure of it. He decides to shift from his pacing activity to just standing in one place at the borderland, eyes and ears alertly forward to catch any sign of her arrival.

Morraine and Oskar

The pale Gypsy mare picked her way along the lush grass of the Border Spring lands north border. She normally would not be choosy as to wear she wandered in these lands. She was claimed by Caradoc and therefore was in no danger by treading upon his lands. No it was not that, but she was unsure if these were still his lands. She had a feeling deep down in her soul that the Border Springs was still theirs. Theirs? Morraine stopped when the thought of theirs sprang into her mind. She considered this land hers. This was a new feeling to the Gyspy mare who had one point considered leaving Caradoc. But that was before she bore him two beautiful baby boys. One of which he did not know existed. He was still an idea that happens when two equines whom have missed each other very much express their love.

Morraine turned her large draft head to watch her youngest son trot along beside her. Her chocolate colored forelock dancing in the wind as it hung over her blind eye. She was very happy that neither of her children were born with any sort of problems. Especially little Oskar. He did look so much like her. With the pale white cream looking coat and the dark mare and tail. He had dark tones that she did not seemingly inherit from her own parents, but he did. She smiled knowing that this one would be a heartbreaker in his future.

"Come little one, we still have a distance to go."

Mother and child traveled a distance more before they found the bay stallion. She slowed to a walk as she approached the stallion whom had still not noticed her presence nor his new son. She nickered to Caradoc gently hoping to pull his attention. Oskar scampered behind Morraine at the sight of the huge bay equine, he hid behind his mother obviously nervous about the situation. He nuzzled his mother's back left leg for comfort.

His head jerks as he hears her voice, jolting him out of the half-trance he had fallen into. She'd come back from a direction he hadn't expected, and Caradoc hastily turns himself about to face her. All the shuffling about reaches Blaine's ears, and the colt stirs, reluctantly until he spots his mother and the foal hiding behind her. He knew, of course, that his mother had gone away to give birth to a new addition of their tiny herd, but the idea of it hadn't really sunk in until now, when he sees Oskar in the flesh. He'd just been newborn himself when his two half-sisters were born, so really this is the first time he's seen a new foal be brought home.

Was it a brother, or yet another sister? He ambles forward, moving in Caradoc's wake, to find out. The bay stallion whickers in response before lipping at Morraine's mane affectionately, so glad that she had returned. And with another son! His thoughts turned speculative. She was the only mare to have borne him a son, much less two. Perhaps it was time to appoint a lead mare, though at the present she would be the only candidate for it. He starts to move carefully towards the little colt, so alike his mother in form, but pauses as Blaine steps past him, intent on doing the exact same thing. Instead, he watches, keeping his position at the Vanner mare's side, to see how the meeting of their sons will play out. Blaine tilts his head as he stops close to Oskar's location. "Hello, little brother. My name's Blaine, what's yours? "

Morraine and Oskar

The Gyspy mare smiles softly as Caradoc nips at her mane affectionately, welcoming her back. It was nice to have the bay stallion back in her life. She had missed him and their first born child who had taken off after his father, but was also safely back where he belonged. She reaches over and gently nuzzles Caradoc's shoulder in a light affection as she watches her two son's interact. Her good eye to them.

Oskar follows behind his pale mother gently. He makes sure to keep an eye on where his mother is walking as he glances around his new home, wide eyed and a bit intimidated. He felt shy. He stood next to his mother's wide haunches on her non blind eye's side so she could watch him. He notices two equines approach them after the pair came to a halt. He was still nervous as the large bay equine approached his mother and nipped at her mane. He felt his small colt ears tip back but quickly went forward when a much smaller bay equine approached him. Oskar feels shy, but responds to his older brother's question gently.

"Oskar."

The meeting of their sons seems to be going well, no sign of jealousy on Blaine's part that he was no longer the only choice for heir. Caradoc hadn't really expected that there would be, for dark emotions didn't tend to run in his family line. Well, except for his mother's endless ambition, but he had never seen her harm another mare in her ultimately fruitless quest. He had been her leverage, but even as the mother of Judgment's only son, her dream had not been achieved. He'd have liked to seen it happen for her, because Roanoke had always been good to him and it would have made her so happy.

But musing over a past that hadn't occurred was pointless. It was within his own power, however, to offer the same to another mare, his own Morraine. His bay muzzle stretches to tickle her ear, and words escape him, phrasing an offer that his father had never made when he had been the one holding this very land. Oblivious to this, Blaine smiles at Oskar, hoping to help him feel less shy. "Well, I don't suppose Mother has had the time to teach you any games yet, has she?"

Morraine

The pale Vanner watched her sons interact. It brought a soft smile to her face to watch her two boys positively interact in a nice manner. She was pulled away from her content musings by the boys very own father. She felt the bay gently nudge her ear in a playful tickling gesture before whispering something into the pale appendage that made her mismatched eyes widen. She turned her pale draft head to look at the bay stallion. Her eyes asking if he was being serious. Words failed the pale mare and she smiled and gently nuzzled his shoulder and chest. It was her way of accepting his offer.

Oskar


Oskar's pale ears tip even more forward in excitement and his dark hued eyes widen. He nicker's to his brother excitedly.

"No, please teach me!"

He sees her gaze turn questioning, she is unsure if she heard him correctly, and Caradoc nods in confirmation, smiling warmly at her. With the way Morraine had remained in Border Springs for a time after even he was gone, she seemed to the bay stallion to be the most loyal member of the herd, and he is confidant that she will make quite the co-lead in the days to come. Now all he need do is find new mares, increase the size of their herd. He will do that soon, after things have settled down a bit. But for now, he just wants to watch their boys play together, a scene of tranquility before his dark eyes.

Blaine tilts his head after Oskar's reply, wondering what would be the easiest game for his much younger brother to learn. His legs were longer than those of the little pale colt, so tag probably wasn't a good idea. Hide and seek? There was an idea. He explains the rules of the game to his new sibling, then takes the first turn, trotting off to find himself a hiding spot that would be good, but not too impossible for Oskar to figure out.
