The sun had just started to peek over the horizon and the first sounds of birdsong fluttered through the wind.  Radek had found a nice tree to sleep under for a few hours before continuing his journey.  Typically the stallion did not travel alone but the companions he'd had with him the last few days had other arrangements.  It had been tough to part ways the night before; Radek was so rarely on his own he didn't know who would get to hear his angelic voice.  The world would be deprived until he found another traveling companion.

He had no particular destination.  He had been home just a few days previously and had seen his father and mother well.  His sister was off doing her thing and hadn't been home in many weeks.  He was thinking perhaps of heading to the Dawn Court but figured he would just let his hooves travel where the stories were and see what and who he could find.  

As he stretched his neck and flipped his head, he blinked the sleep from his eyes.  Watching the sunrise was always his favorite part of the day and he greeted Solis with a whinny.  A few birds chimed in to herald the new day.  It took a few steps to shake out the drowsiness but within minutes he was trotting along at a leisurely pace, watching out for the world around him.  The planes stretched out far, meaning food was in good supply and he should be able to see anyone coming from a long way off.

Willfur



A call sounds from startlingly nearby, just off to his left, and raises the big stallions head. He'd been napping, lying flat out beneath the warm glow of the rising sun and cushioned by a patch of dense wheat, their tall stalks acting like a natural privacy screen. Even after rolling onto his sternum only the tips of his massive ears clear the tops of the stems around him, their russet edges blending in with the deep, earthy colors of Fall.

It's probably about time he got up anyway.

With a groan, he unfolds his legs, stretching and shaking any loose hair from his coat as he straightens. He might have yawned or blinked away the weight of unconsciousness too, but immediately a pop of color draws his attention, something decidedly not the muted browns or reds of Autumn. "Oh! Hello!"

He can't help but stare - a little, at least - at the strangers brightly fringed, iridescent feathers, so similar to a type of exotic pheasant he'd once seen described in a text on Asiatic birds. "You're very well dressed today, aren't you?" Smiling, he hopes to mitigate with jovial humor any offense his sudden appearance and lack of propriety might have caused. "I've never been much of a looker myself, but I feel especially outclassed in comparison to you. All I've got are big ears and a bell!"

With a chuckle, he wags his short tail back and forth, making the silver bell tied there ring out a sweet, tinkling melody.

Don't apologize! I like your writing. <3

Radek was what one might call a high-stepper.  His hooves made it almost to chest level when he walked, a prance, if you will.  One would assume he only did it when someone was watching but in his eyes, anyone could be watching at any moment.  And he must always be ready to impress.

"Oh! Hello!"  Radek's head turned around on a swivel, looking for the body that accompanied the voice.  What he found was a rather...unimpressive horse.  If it could even be called that.  Basic browns, large ears, a short tail.  Of course, he was used to nearly every creature he came across being less extravagant and flaunting as he was but this was...hard to look at.  And yet, he found it hard to tear his eyes away.  "You're very well dressed today, aren't you?"  Luckily the other's voice brought him back down to Novus.  "I've never been much of a looker myself, but I feel especially outclassed in comparison to you. All I've got are big ears and a bell!"

He chuckled slightly and flashed a toothy grin, bringing forth the drama he was known for.  "Why yes, I am quite happy you noticed."  He tossed his head, causing his mane and feathers to fall to the other side of his neck, gracefully and as if his hair was enchanted never to fall out of place.  "I believe all creatures have beauty in their own way.  Yours might not be...external" he blinked quickly a few times as he paused ever so briefly "...but I am sure your heart is full of beauty.  And I quite like your bell.  Perhaps a nice musical piece would help announce my entrances more audibly.  Of course, once you see me there is no mistaking who I am, but It might be nice for those poor souls who cannot see or for whom I am too far away to know when I am near."

He had verbally stumbled for only a moment but as a storyteller, it was his job to think on his hooves and speak without hesitation, even in the face of uncertainty. He had been bested today by this stranger and he chided himself mentally, vowing to learn from this moment and not be caught off guard by such a plain type of creature again.
