Winter's chilly grasp was loosening its hold over the environment it seemed. Clumps of dirty white clung in sparse locations shielded with shade. The air possessed a manageable chill but the sun's uninterrupted glare easily balanced it with its warmth. The young mare, much like the clumps of remnant snow, clung to the shadows beneath the trees and watched the strange equines with a moody stare. She was a foreigner. She knew nothing of where she was or how to navigate these lands. Despite her preference toward solitude, she followed an unsuspecting group of mares similar in her age to these lands. Here, they seemed to gather. Small groups of others loitered and socialized while others more singular like herself, hung around in silence. Every once in awhile someone was approached by another and they were taken from these grounds with excitement beaming from their faces. Why? What did these other strangers offer that were different from those gathered? Why were they all hanging around this place? Was it a common place of just... hanging out? She wanted to build the motivation to approach someone and ask, but each inward attempt to push herself was met with chilly resilience. The thoughts of conversing and the possible consequence of being pulled into a group disgusted her; anchoring her to her moody little patch of shade.
"Hello there!" The mare about leapt from her skin when a masculine voice called out toward her. Her attention snapped toward his friendly expressed face and approaching form. Her cold stare must've caused some form of doubt to twist his initial intentions as the stallion proceeded to walk past her awkwardly in an attempt to appear as if speaking to someone else. An awkward apologetic smile was tossed to the side toward her, but she said nothing and offered nothing consoling. Was this all to be expected? If so, what was her purpose? How did she go about settling here in these foreign lands?
