There was a spring in the newest mother of the lands. Ceelena finally had her wish, a love, a life, a daughter. Someone to take over the land in future lands. Only one thing brought her back down now. Sympathy. He had gone...searching the world for answers. Questions that were impossible to answer, unless a god themselves answered.
The day old filly walked gracefully by her mothers side, the little chest puffed out proudly as she walked. A little spiral already starting to appear upon her nobel head. "Mother?" the filly asked, coming to a pause and looking around the the beautiful lands. "Yes my beautiful baby?" she asked, stopping by her side and peering around as if searching for something.

A gray stallion walked towards the two. His head was bowed and a bay filly with mysterious purple eyes walked towards them. The stallion stopped metres away, his eyes stared at the two. Ceelena...! He thought. He was happy, and then he saw the foal beside her, a unicorn. He smiled.
Yet he lowered his head in shame, as the filly trotted forwards. She stood beside him, her head held high, her purple eyes glaring. "Is that them, Sympathy?" He nodded, wondering what her opinion would be, but she said nothing else.
He walked forwards, she followed. "Ceelena.." He nuzzled her and smiled, looking down at the filly, their foal. "T-this is Quiet Whisper.. A orphan.. I was thinking of taking her in.. She has no one, and is.. Attached to me." He sighed. "I.. Have not found my answers... Even after asking The Grim Reaper. Perhaps, I wasn't destined to know."
He bent and nuzzled his child and walked off, looking for somewhere he could drink. Quiet Whisper stayed behind, smirking. "Hello mare." It was already obvious she thought she was better than Ceelena and her filly. She flicked her tail and trotted off after him. She would never leave Sympathy.. Even if she had to brake those in her way to get to him.
"Who is that?" the newborn foal asked, nodding at the approaching stallion and foal. "That...is your father," she whispered, her heart leaping at the mere sight of him. But something made her pause, was it the foal by his side? He hadn't been that long anyway...had he? She counted the months, and sighed no. "Sympathy," she said with delight, nuzzling her mate's silver coat and listened to his words. "Then, of course, she is welcome, anyone in need can seek a home here...you know that,", she said gently and studied the filly. The intelligent spark of her mind connected with hers, and the white queen sighed lightly. The filly saw them as a threat, in some ways. She hoped it would end well, she would of course treat them both the same...but would the filly let her? "The answers with seek you, once you are allowed to learn there meaning," she said and followed his movements as he sought the water. "Oh," the young foal by her side said finally, and Ceelena blinked at her. "What dear?" the young fae asked her daughter. "I don't think she likes me..." "Nonsense...you'll be great friends," Ceelena snorted, pushing her to go and play.

Quiet Whisper stood by Sympathy, nudging his front right leg. She smiled up at him, like a perfect angel. She felt safe with him, more safe then she would with anyone else. She saw Sympathy stop by a stream and drink, she joined him, but drank little. She turned her purple eyes, watching Ceelena and the foal.
She trotted towards them and looked at the filly. "What's your name? I'm Quiet Whisper.. If you didn't hear before." She smiled softly, and looked up at Ceelena. "You're Ceelena, aren't you? Sympathy always talked about you, as if you were his spark, the thing that kept him going after everything he had endured in his life."
Sympathy could hear Quiet Whisper chatting to the others. He laughed softly, swishing his tail. He turned around and nudged her. "Be nice, Whisper.." He knew he had not spoken to his child yet, he had only spoken to Ceelena and Whisper. He smiled at the filly and walked to the other side of Ceelena, away from the fillies.
"How about, we have some bonding time? It's been so long, since I've seen you.." He nuzzled her, happy he was here, home for good, or atleast for now. He figured he should have some bonding time with Illusion as well, he had had enough time with Quiet.. For a while now.
Illusion looked to her mother, who gave her a encouranging nod before she spoke. "My name is Hidden Illusion...but call me Illusion..." she said shyly, stepping out towards the filly with strange eyes. "It is nice to meet you..Quiet Whisper..." she said polietly. "Yes dear, I am Ceelena, and it is a pleasure to meet you.." The pallid fae said warmly. She turned her nobel head, nipping Sympathy's neck gently. "Yes, that would be lovely," she murmered, watching there daughter speak shyly. "She couldn't wait to meet you, you know? She was always asking questions about you..."

He smiled softly, when Ceelena talked to him. He nuzzled her, lovingly. "I'm so happy to be back here.. With you, with our filly.." He looked over at Quiet Whisper, as he led Ceelena off a few metres to talk. "Ceelena.. There's.. There's something wrong with Whisper.. She.." He bowed his head. "The Grim Reaper did something to her.. She was sweet before.. But now.."
A tear almost slid down his cheek as he thought of what had happened to her. He knew he had done something, but what exactly? He knew it just wasn't a personality change.. But something.. Something bad.
Quiet Whisper cocked her head at the little filly. "Is.. Sympathy your father?" She said softly, lowering her head. She wanted Sympathy to be her father by blood so much. She wanted so badly that it would be just them forever.. She shot a dirty look at Illusion for a split second, knowing she hadn't seen she turned her head towards the adults.
"Sympathy likes me better than you, I know he does. We've been together for so long.. He doesn't even know you, and I bet he doesn't even want too. If he had, then why hasn't he talked to you yet? Hes spoken to me and Ceelena." She smiled deviously at her, making a effort to twist her mind. She wanted Illusion and Ceelena to disappear, so it would only be them.
"Yes...my mother told me so," she said proudly, looking at both mare and stag. "Is he your father?" She asked innocently and flicked her little fluffy tail.
Ceelena nodded slightly and sighed. "There is something wrong..in her mind...she sees me and Illusion as a threat...and wants us out of the picture..." she murmered softly to him. She sighed, unsure what to do.
The young fae listen, trusting every word from the other fillies maw, knowing everything was true. "Mummy!" she cried, dashing and hiding between her dam's legs.

"No. He isn't." Quiet Whisper snorted almost angrily. As she heard Illusion cry out, she slunk away, in to the shadows. She watched from the darkness, her purple eyes staring hideously at them, glaring. You will leave.. So me and Sympathy can always be together.
Sympathy nodded as Ceelena talked. "She.. Scares me sometimes Ceelena. She used to be a angel, but now.. Since.." He shivered, and his head shot up as he heard Illusion cry out. "W-Where is she?" He said rather loudly. He knew she was corrupted, but he still had to look out for her...
She nodded in understanding, thinking hard about what could be done. The pallid head shot up at her daughter's cry and nodded to the trees for her mate. "In those trees...watching us..." she said quietly, hearing the dark thoughts from the mind. "Dear Illusion, what is the matter?" she asked, trying to calm her filly as she hide between her legs. "Shesaidfatherdoesn'tlikeme...andlikesherbetterthanme,Iknowhedoes. Shesaidhedoesn'tevenwanttoknowme!" she cried, barely able to be understood. "Shh...it is not true love, he was just busy, of course he loves you. He loves you both the same," she consoled quietly until the sobs stopped.

Sympathy sighed and shook his head. "It's all right, Illusion.. How about me and you go and find some nice flowers to show to your mother? Quiet Whisper can stay with Ceelena while we go.." He gave Ceelena a look that said 'Be careful of her'.
Quiet Whisper snorted as she heard their words. She walked through the bushes, aware of their rustling as she walked closer towards them. "I dont want to stay with her.. I want to go with you, Sympathy!" She shot Ceelena a dirty look.
"That...that would be nice," the shy filly said quietly, stepping slowly out towards her father. Ceelena smiled at her daughter and turned to Quiet. "Come dear," she commanded the young fae. Ceelena was a pactient one, but sometimes things had to be taken roughly.
Once her own daughter was out of sight, Ceelena span and faced the foal. "Now listen," she said slowly, locking her eyes with the odd purple ones. "Why are you so cruel to a newborn foal? She only met her father today, and yet you are already creating up stories..." Ceelena said. "Every. Single. Thought. You have ever thought, I can hear. Every memory, feeling, emotion I can share. I am powerful Quiet Whisper, and can help you."

Sympathy smiled, he leaned and nuzzled the small filly. "I think theres a bunch of them over here." He said, nodding towards a clearing. "Of all sorts and kinds, they're all very beautiful. I wonder what kind Ceelena would like.." He smiled and watched the openings to the clearing, in case anything unwanted came.
Her voice started out soft, but it went louder and louder as she spoke each word, til she was screaming. "Why.. Cant you just leave me and Sympathy.. ALONE?!" Her voice returned to normal and she spoke again, fury in her eyes. "You.. Cant help me. If you cant read my thoughts and know my history, tell me it now! Tell me.. Tell what it did to me?!"
"Calm down dear.." Ceelena said softly, trying to calm her. But she guessed it wasn't her own thoughts, feelings, at least not on whole. "An Angel, that is what you were...The Grim Reaper came, with a old..." she paused unable to describe Hades. "Friend....and he changed you." "Sweet one, you are stronger, fight it.." she said, stepping slightly towards the filly, maybe her horn could help her.
"You can...everyone can fight there darkness," she said quietly, watching the filly with her eyes until she disappeared from sight before keeping tabs on her mind. With a sigh, she turned and trotted towards her mate and daughter.
"Ohh, I think she would like that one Daddy," Illusion said, her little fluffly tail wagging slighty and she looked up as her mother entered the clearing. "Hello Mummy, this is for you," she said, nibbling at the purple flower beside her.
