  1. Heart Shield folded a ear at Sombra's constant remarks, as he heard him chuckling to himself. Heart stood standing still upright Staring off into the room, His grey coat and the golden armor only seemed to highlight the annoyed look in his eyes. "Yes it can be a pretty enjoyable job at times....." He remarked with a pause as he could see Sombra's wide grin from the corner of his eye to his annoyance. Heart sighed as Sombra seemed to carry on forever "You could call me a servant if you want i guess, But i can still think for myself." Heart Shield replied in a huffy voice. "What i was trying to imply is that whether you would submit yourself to a job such as mine or not is your own decision, and is not of a concern to me." He said in a bit of a sharp response. He was trying so hard to not let Sombra bother him. Heart Shield wasn't one to easily get angered or agitated, and it usually took a lot to get him there, But it seemed Sombra was getting him there. Heart Shield relaxed a little when he heard him ask him what his name was. Perhaps a momentary reprieve to have a actual conversation. "My names Heart Shield, and I already heard lots about you Sombra." He replied in a calmer voice as he stared straight ahead, still standing in his place
  2. Heart Shield stood listening to Sombra's remarks as he increasingly grew more and more agitated. Heart looked down with narrow eyes, a annoyed expression on his face, as he stood still, Looking at Sombra out of the corner of his eye as He sat relaxed on a cushion near a table. Heart Shield wanted so much to make a sarcastic remark in response to Sombra's prods, He knew this would only add fuel to the fire tho, He had to remain calm about this, even if he was deeply annoyed. Heart Shield took a deep breath in and sighed out Imagining himself in literally any other place he would rather be right now, and taking a moment to collect his thoughts and calm himself. "Yes indeed the Princesses are powerful enough to protect themselves, but it's more of a formality for use to go along when ever she takes her carriage anywhere." Heart said glancing back up again in a calmer voice. "I can be a good job, and whether you submit yourself to somepony else or not is merely one's personal preference" He remarked with a little bit of a regret knowing that Sombra would probably use that against him in some way or fashion. Heart Shield dreaded at the thought of having to listen to Sombra, but he tried not to show it outwardly. "If the princess orders me to listen to you, Then so be it, But as of now I don't have such a command" He remarked back, Maybe He was letting Sombra get the better of him.
  3. Heart stood as still as he could as he watched Sombra give him a little snort before walking over and seating himself on a chair in the room, just off to his side Before asking him more antagonistic questions. He stood where he was listening to him. "We do all sorts of others things too like guarding other parts of the castle, Patrolling the streets of Canterlot assisting citizens, Personally guarding the princess when she is doing duties outside of the castle, or getting sent to assist in other towns." Heart Shield explained to Sombra, his face of embarrassment fading now to a slightly annoyed look. "I can assure you this armor serves me well" Heart Shield remarked with a calm tone. He could tell Sombra was enjoying this, He tried so ever hard to not let him get the satisfaction of it, even if he did seem a little annoyed. "Yes, We do training exercises on a regular basis to keep our skills sharp. Me i am trained on the sword, and i do enjoy fencing from time to time." He said trying to answer His every question in a serious manner as he could. Sombra went on to remark that the princess would never give them any commands, and if only to throw a troublemaker out. Heart Shield snorted quietly to himself when he remarked troublemakers. "The princess's orders are indeed few between sometimes, but it is my duty to follow them when she does" He said as a bit of smile grew on his face as he glanced down chuckling to himself. " Trouble maker eh? We do get ordered to escort some ponies out of the castle on rare occasions." Heart Shield remarked with a smirk trying to subtly poke back at Sombra.
  4. Heart Shield never realized just how tall Sombra was, as he stood looking up at him. His mind quickly raced trying to think of what to say. Heart Shield had heard all about Sombra, but to this point had never meet him before, and here he was standing over him staring at him with a most serious face. Sombra for a moment broke his steely gaze on Heart Shield as he surveyed the room, before returning back to him. "Yes indeed, It is my duty to guard any important documents or knowledge, and to serve any commands that the princess might give." Heart Shield tried to respond in a serious manner as Sombra shadowed over him, The feathers on his wings fluttering a little before settling back against his side, A nervous little smile on his face. Heart Shield remained standing straight up, as much as he wanted to shrink down and disappear from the embarrassment, and the nervousness of having Sombra staring him down. Heart Shield had a little bit of a surprised and a bit nerved look on him when Sombra had said that the castle didn't need guards like him, But he tried to not let it him bother him. "No... Not all the time.... We do get to do other things from time to time." He quickly blurted out trying to defend himself, as he thought about what Sombra had said. "...Well...It does get a little boring sometimes..." Heart Shield had replied in a soft voice as he tried to break Sombra's glare, glancing downwards a moment before looking back up.
  5. Heart Shield had stood in the large meeting room for a few minutes, His smile disappearing into a straight face as he glanced around the room with his eyes. It had been awfully quiet in the room, but he wasn't allowed to go anywhere until his shift was up or another guard relieved him. Heart Shield took the opportunity of the peace and quiet to think to himself. His blue eyes glanced downward slightly as his mind wandered. He had perhaps gotten a little too much into self thought, as he didn't notice sombra wander in from the hallway on the far side of the room to his left. Suddenly there was a voice near him, Taking him by surprise. His eyes narrowed as they snapped back up to see where this voice was coming from, His body tensed for a moment as his wings flinched a little. His cheeks filling quickly to a rose red as if he had been caught doing something he shouldn't. It didn't really help the matter much as he glanced over to see that it was Sombra himself! Heart Shield took a moment to think, What was he guarding anyway? "Oh, I'm here to make sure that no ponies come up to these parts of the castle that shouldn't be." He said with a little bit of a smile trying to regain his composure again. It was rather intimidating to him tho, Not only did he have the embarrassment in the guard of not noticing some pony approaching him, But that some pony just happened to be Sombra!
  6. Heart Shield began his day at his little home along the streets in Canterlot. It was his first day back to the guard after some time off. The days had gone to fast he thought to himself as he got ready for the day and headed out the door, Making his way up to the castle. Greeting the guards out front he made his way in. Making his way down a hallway, He entered a room where there was lockers for all the guards to keep their armor. Walking down the line of lockers along the wall he glanced at all the numbers looking for his. Finally finding his, He stopped to pull the door open, and took his armor out. Putting each piece on, He adjusted them to his liking. Heart shield wasn't really enthusiastic about starting this week, Things had been mostly quiet and it was rather quite boring. Having put his armor on, Heart shield closed the door to his locker and trotted out the room. His post today was upstairs in the castle, In a place where not many ponies besides the princesses went. Climbing the stairs he glanced around and tried to smile a little. It was going to be a boring day, but at least he would have some peace and quiet for the day, Or at least he hoped. Finding his place in the room he was to be at, He adjusted his ponytail sticking out the side of his helmet before straightening up his legs and stood looking like he should. Heart Shield gave out a little sigh, He seemed to be the only one in the room, and it mostly seemed quiet upstairs. It was going to be a long day, but he had hoped There would be at least something to keep him busy for awhile....
  7. Sliding off the booth and standing back up on his hooves Heart Shield adjusted the scarf around his neck as the mare slid the bits into her bag. "You're welcome Ms Yuna, its yours to enjoy" He said softly as he stretched his legs after have been sitting for awhile. He had planned on spending the rest of his day wandering around Canterlot on his day off. Hearing her speak how Canterlot can not be so friendly he had to agree with her on that. "Yeh i can see what you mean about some ponies around, some are not so talkative are they?" He said with a smile. Glancing out the window he looked at the street outside. What else could he get in to today? "Forgive me for running off on you, I have just been aimlessly wandering about today. Today's my last day off before i go back to guarding. I figured i would take my time off to explore around Canterlot at my leisure." He said as he picked his empty cup off the table.
  8. After pushing over the bits to Yuna, Heart Shield observed the sort of bashful response she had given to taking the bits. "Oh its alright, Take it i insist, you have earned it" He said with a soft smile as he looked down to see there wasn't much of his Hot Chocolate left in the bottom of the cup. Drinking the rest of it down in one last swallow. He wasn't sure if he wanted to get something else or finally let this pony have some time to herself "Not sure if i should get myself another drink, or let you be. Sorry if i had been any bit of a bother to you. Its certainly been nice chatting to you Ms Yuna, and thank you for letting me sit here for awhile." He said as he prepared to get up from the booth, Reaching down and pickup his scarf to wrap it back around his neck. "I'll make sure to remember what you told me, And please if you have any trouble with anypony here in Canterlot just let me know, I'm always around somewhere". Heart Shield said in a soft tone of voice as he slid himself to the end of the booth to go get rid of the cup.
  9. Heart Shield sat and listened to Yuna's predictions about him as he lightly held on to his cup. He was relieved that she said he would do well, but a threat? at the castle!? The thought of that made him a little anxious. Having finished her fortune telling he reached down for his bag of bits. "Thanks so much, I do believe I promised some bits for you" He said as he dug out some bits and slid them across the table. "Here, how does 20 bits sound to you?" He asked as he returned to sipping on his hot chocolate. Sitting there in silence for a moment he thought about the things that she had said some more. "Well I'm certainly happy that you said i will do well. You also said that I will come face to face with a threat?" He asked in curiosity as he thought about it. "Well what ever it is, I will do my best to be prepared for it, and i will do what i must." He added as he remembered her saying it would take place at the castle. "This Threat will be at the castle? That will certainly make me a little jumpy until it happens." He chuckled a little bit to himself. "I should let you get back to your coffee now." He said relaxing back in his seat to sip at his drink again.
  10. Heart Shield sat as he listened to Yuna talk about the ponies she has met, sipping at his hot chocolate. When he first approached this pony she seemed a bit shy. She seemed nice enough now, He thought to himself as he sat in a relaxed position on the booth, slightly glancing across the booth out the window while also paying attention to her. He heard how most ponies view fortunetelling as a joke or entertainment, and how some might actually do that. "It's a shame that some ponies view your work as a joke, without knowing your true intentions." He said trying to word it without it sounding like he was trying to be unkind or anything. "Actually out of interest if you don't mind, perhaps maybe you could tell my fortune sometime? I never seen a fortune teller before. I would be willing to throw some bits your way." He asked out of curiosity realizing he has never been to a fortune teller before. Shortly after asking the question, The mare asked him if you was with the Royal Guard. "Ahh yes, I'm with the Royal Guard. I joined a few years back. As a foal I always kind of had a fascination with them. When i got old enough to join i moved from my parents home in ponyville to join up, and now here i am." Heart Shield replied as he thought about it only being a few years back. He was still a rather young stallion. "I don't blame you for not trying the big cities, They seem like such a rush all the time. I prefer more quite towns myself, Canterlot is probably as big of a town as i would want to live in, But i wouldn't mind visiting a larger city for a day." He thought to himself as he glanced back down at his drink again.
  11. (I'm sure this one has been done before, but here it goes) You awake from a strange dream to find yourself in a random place in equestria. You seem to be a pony version of yourself. You look around to see that you have nothing at all on you. Picking yourself up off the ground. Looking around it seems you are stuck in the world of Equestria. You realize your going to be here for quite awhile, and need to get your self established to living in this world. What do you do and where do you go? How are you going to live your life on Equestria?
  12. Ugh, Spent most of my weekend being sick :(. Wish i could have posted more, but i just can't think of anything. 

  13. Having sat down, Heart Shield felt a little easier knowing this pony didn't mind him being here. Relaxing back in his seat holding his drink, he glanced out the window, then back to the pony on the other side as she introduced herself. "Well, Its nice to you Yuna." He replied. The pony had also remarked that she was fortuneteller, "Fortuneteller eh? I bet you see all kinds of ponies" Heart Shield replied as he sipped on his drink "Never met one before until now" He added as the pony went on to explain where she was from. "Ah your from Baltimare, Its a big old city isn't it? One of these days i might get out to visit it." He said as he sat and thought about what it might be like there. "Oh, yeh I live just up the street a little ways. I'm from Ponyville originally, But i moved here when i joined the guard" Despite living in Canterlot for awhile now, Heart Shield was still a little new to Canterlot himself, There was always something new to see. There was a bit of a silence as He sat kind of blankly staring out the window at the street outside as he thought of something else to say. "You must have seen quite a bit of Equestria in your travels!" He said as wondered what it must be like to be constantly traveling around.
  14. Asking permission to sit in the booth the mare gestured to the seat across from her, "Why thank you". He said Sliding in across from her, and sitting just on the end of the booth. Sorry if bother you ms, I figured i would sit here since all the seats are taken. I'd gladly move if I'm bother you tho." Heart Shield said trying to explain himself. He thought it would be rude to get to close to her and invade her personal space. Setting his cup down he glanced out the window than back down at his cup taking a sip from it. The pony still seemed to be lost in thought, before she broke her silence once again to comment on the weather. "It sure is a little cold out there indeed' He replied in sort of a shy response, not knowing what to say himself. It was rather warm inside from the fireplace over on the other side of the shop, Looking down at his scarf around his neck, He slid it off and placed on the seat next to him. "Sorry for not introducing myself earlier, my names Heart Shield." He said realizing he hadn't introduced himself to this pony, What was her name anyway? "I think I have seen you in Canterlot before, You from around here?" He asked trying to strike up conversation as he sat sipping at his hot chocolate.
  15. Entering the cafe Heart Shield felt the rush of warm air surround him, The cold morning air retreating back out into the street as the door closed. walking over to the counter and having a look at the menu, He gazed over the list looking for something that sounds good. Heart Shield wasn't a coffee pony but he did like Hot Chocolate. After a few minutes he decided on having a Caramel hot chocolate with a fancy swirl of peanut butter and dark chocolate on a topping of whipped cream. Upon placing his order he hoofed over some bits, and the mare behind the counter went to work on his order. Waiting for his order Heart Shield glanced around the room looking for a place to sit. There was stools at the counter, but they where all taken, tables and chairs also where placed around the fireplace, and there was booths along the window. Both which seemed rather packed. Looking around Heart Shield contemplated where to sit, There was seating outside too, but it was far to cold for that. Glancing over his shoulder to the booths on his left he saw one booth in which sat a striped pastel colored pegasus with dark magenta eyes. She looked familiar He thought to himself, He had seen Her around Canterlot every once in awhile. He searched his memory to remember where he has seen her before. Just then the mare behind the counter brought up his order. "Thank, you so much." He politely said as the mare returned to her duties. Looking around there where still no seats empty, Looking to the nearly empty booth Heart Shield figured he would at least try to be social. He hated to intrude upon someponies privacy, but it didn't look like he had much choice, That is unless he wanted to stand all the time. Picking up his cup he trotted over towards the booth occupied by the one pony. She seemed to having something on her mind as she sat and stared out the window next to the booth. "Good morning Ms. Seems a little busy in here isn't it? Would you mind if i shared this booth with you?" He asked in soft voice a smile on his face, Trying to be polite as possible.

  17. Upon Greeting the two stallions standing out front. He noticed ponies starting to stream in now. The first after him was a griffon which flew in over him, Then Applejack and Taira. Heart Shield could smell something delicious coming from within the farm. Trotting down the path and to the farm itself. Looking around Heart Shield was surprised at the amount of work that went into this party. Inside where barrels of cider, tables full of all kinds of food, and decorations hung about, Even a dance floor was being built!. He felt kind of bad not contributing anything. Perhaps maybe he could help in some sort of way if he wasn't to late? He thought to himself gazing about. Heart Shield still felt a little awkward being there, It just felt strange to him being at somepony else place with ponies he didn't really know well. He deiced he could at least try to change that. "Oh hello Applejack, and Taira!" Heart shield said with a smile, then noticing they where carry large containers on there back. "Is there any way i could help?" Heart Shield asked softly. He wasn't accustomed to party going, But he knew he didn't want to show up to a party ponies have worked so hard to make and not give anything in return. It just wouldn't feel right
  18. Finishing the race Heart Shield was invited to attend a party at Boulder dashes place by applejack and Taria. Getting direction from them he set off towards the outskirts in search of His farm. Parties weren't really Heart Shield things, but he decided to give it a try. Coming over a hill the Farm came into view. It was a rather large farm, Tomato plants stretched out for ever. Searching for the Entrance Heart Shield continued along the path. Passing row after row of plants Heart Shield looked to see what seemed to be the entrance to the farm ahead. Approaching the entrance at a slow trot, He noticed two ponies standing outside the entrance, possibly to greet guests. Approaching the two as casually as you could he greeted the two ponies out front "Good Evening gentle-stallions, I'm Heart Shield, This would appear to be where the parties at i presume?" He asked the two standing out front. Heart Shield wasn't really new to being around ponyville, But he had never been on a farm before. Maybe being away from the rush of Canterlot even for a little could do him some good He thought. He didn't really know anyone here to well or at all, It seemed a little awkward to him, But Heart Shield decided to try to at least get to know these new ponies.
  19. Heart Shield smiled upon Taira's response. The large wolf lowered his head to his level, He still seemed like such a huge wolf. Heart Shield had never encountered a Okami before. Heart Shield never imagined he would be talking to one this very moment, He couldn't say that now tho. He was actually rather interested in learning more about his kind now. "this is something I'm going to have to tell my parents about" He thought to himself "They probably won't believe me anyway" Heart shield chuckled to himself. In the middle of his thought Taira had voiced a question to the pony. "Ohh, ummm, A party? I didn't think i would be invited." Heart Shield replied shyly. He realized he didn't really know anyone here real well. "I mean i will go if you want me to, I just wasn't sure..." He stopped his sentence kind of awkwardly. He was getting a little more comfortable around him now, But it just seemed a little awkward going to a party with people he didn't know. Maybe he could get to know this Okami named Taira more. After all it might be a chance to make new friends Heart Shield convinced himself.
  20. So I am pretty new to writing (probably as you can tell ). I have been interested in writing my own stories outside of Rping here. I figured i could practice sharpening my writing skills up here before i try anything else. On a day to day basis, I am constantly coming up with ideas and daydreams in my mind, and I would love to get them out of my head and onto a piece of paper, or screen. That's the problem tho, I have tried to articulate my ideas several times, But what i write or draw on the paper, and what i am imagining in my head doesn't always match up to my expectations , And it really frustrates me sometimes. Or sometimes I'll get that "good enough" attitude and leave everything lacking detail. Maybe I am expecting to much out of myself. Would anyone have any suggestions on who to overcome this, and able to write in a way that it goes into detail smoothly without lulling over the details? Sorry if this is hard to understand.
  21. Heart Shield eased up a little, a smile returned to his face. It seemed every pony had kept calm, and this version of the kirin wasn't harmful but rather his true form. He had never seen a Okami or heard of one before, and was rather intrigued by it. He couldn't wrap his head around it, This pony he had raced with was actually a wolf, and he mentioned something about the last dance party he was to was a millennia ago. Heart Shield had a hard time making sense of it, Admittedly he did look rather cool looking in his wolf form, "wish i could do that" Heart Shield thought to him self. The large wolf responded to his earlier question "Oh um, tissues, uhh i don't think i have any on hoof, but I'm glad your alright." Heart Shield had said with a little bit of a nervous smile. He knew Taira wouldn't do anything to him, but he was rather intimidating looking tho. The large wolf overshadowed the now seemingly small guard pony. Turning His thoughts to other things now, He wondered now that the race was over, what other festivities would take place? How would he spend the rest of his time in ponyville?
  22. Roleplay Type: Main RpName: CaoimheSex: MaleAge: StallionSpecies: Earth ponyEye colour: GoldenCoat: Chocolate brown with white on his belly, in his ears, and at the bottom of his hoovesMane/Tail: his mane is in medium length, and has black, and light blonde color mixed in, with a medium length matching tailPhysique: Caoimhe is a tall pony with a stocky build and moderate muscles Residence: Fet LochOccupation: Farmer/ sheep herder Cutie Mark: Mountain with a dirt trail winding around it down to the base and out and a compass in the middle of the mountain. As a young colt Caoimhe loved hiking in the mountains, and taking in the sights from way up high. as a young colt he often wandered the harsh terrain alone, either for his free time or looking for a lost sheep, and learned to know his way around the steep mountains and wilderness. As a young colt, one day a sheep had gotten loose from the pasture and wandered off. He was given responsibility from his parents to watch over the flock for the day, and he feared he would be in trouble for letting one wander off. Taking it upon himself Caoimhe took off looking for this sheep. Wandering the mountain sides up and down for several hours in search of this sheep. Wandering down into the woods below he eventually found the sheep in the thick woods. By this time night was falling, and he realized he to was lost and far from home. Using landmarks and natural features he was able to find his way back home and return the sheep and himself to safety once more. Unique Traits: Caoimhe is a hard working stallion, and over the years of herding sheep through the rough mountainside has given him a rather high stamina, and can run or do labor intensive work for long periods of times. It has also proven to give him a knack for navigating the wilderness and finding his way without a map or compass using nothing but landmarks and natural features. He is also really good at herding sheep, even doing so alone at times. He has a rather calm demeanor and is good at keeping ponies calm and avoiding conflicts. History: Caoimhe was born in the highlands of Fet Loch in a small stone cottage on the mountain side with his parents Allaway and brèagha. From a foal He grew up on his families pasture and helped tend to the farm. Work was hard herding sheep on the mountain but the view was always worth it. His parents Allaway his father inherited the farm from his line of ancestors who had settled the land on the harsh mountain side, and his mother brèagha lived down in the lower lands of Fet Loch. Both his parents brought up Caoimhe to always be respectful and hardworking. They always treated him with fairness and love. Caoimhe still lives on his families farm to this day, and looks after his parents and the farm. In his stallion years His parents let him take over the farm so they could retire from farming, but they don't mind pitching in to help. His life can be very labor intensive, but he deems it as humble work. Caoimhe has rather simplistic goals and hopes to establish his own farm and live in a small stone cottage just like his parents someday. Character Personality: Caoimhe may be a tall stocky pony but don't let that intimidate you. He is generally a very easy going pony, and just likes to have fun. Caoimhe is a bit of a wanderer and like to travel around taking in the beautiful sights of nature. When he is in town he likes getting to meet knew ponies and making new friends. He isn't really fond of fancy or formal gathering and prefers to live a simple life. For the most part he always has a laid back attitude and easy to get along with, He is really slow to anger but if you manage to get him there he can get quite confrontational. Character Summary: Caoimhe is is a hearty stallion with a stocky build and a soft personality. He always like to find new friends and fun where ever it can be found. He is a stallion of simple tastes and dislikes the formalities of more sophisticated life styles. He is mostly a s peaceful pony and is slow to anger but can be rather aggressive if you manage to get him all worked up. All in all he is pretty relaxed pony to be around and has a sort of bubbly attitude most of the time.
  23. Crossing the finish line Heart shield finally was able to take a breather. 10th place was far behind, but he thought it was pretty good for joining in the race way late. The main thing was he had fun, and that was all that mattered to him. He did manage to miss the sap in the whitetail woods, and recovered from a spill near the end of the race. Heart Shield convinced himself he could do better next year. He thought about what he was going to do now that the race was over. As he looked around there where celebrations everywhere, ponies where cheering in the stands. Watching as the top racers where put on a podium and handed out rewards, When out of nowhere there was a loud boom and sudden burst of mist and air! Panicking Heart Shield looked to see that the source was from a kirin which had been standing on one of the podiums. It was hard to see because of the mist surrounding the kirin, but he seemed to be a bit taller than he was before. Finally managing to catch a glimpse there was a large wolf standing in his place! Heart Shields mind raced 100 miles a minute trying to figure out what was happening. As a Royal guard it was his duty to resolve all problems that may arise. Heart shield started to trot cautiously towards the wolf that stood among the mist, but froze before going more that a few steps. What was he going to do!? So many things raced through his mind that he could not comprehend it all. Knowing this wolf was one the ponies that took part in the race, he didn't want to have a confrontation with him. "Ar... Are you okay there buddy?" Heart shield asked keeping himself ready for anything, what ever that may be. Standing frozen like a statue Heart Shield was conflicted on what to do. Should he try to help him, should he stay right where he was? His mind overwhelmed him, standing there with a confused and worried look on his face. He knew he wanted to help this kirin, and didn't want anything bad to fall upon him. "What should i do!?" Heart Shield asked in a bit of a panic looking around at the ponies who stood around him
  24. Recovering from his little trip Heart Shield resumed galloping along at a fast pace, He couldn't let it end this way He had to catch up! Funny how its so much harder to do something again than for the first time. Luckily for him he managed to get on his hooves again fairly quickly after the fall. Had he been any slower he feared the race would be over for him, but it wasn't quite over yet so there was no time to ponder on this thought! Galloping as hard as he could Heart Shields hooves pounded the dust as he whizzed along, and when he had reached his top speed he pushed himself even harder! Closing the gap by a little he pressed on. He could see up ahead the pack of ponies neared the finish line. He had to catch up before they crossed the line! In a panic he rushed along closing in a little bit more now, he could hear the ponies talking to each other again now. He was inching ever closer. It would be a close finish for him. Keeping all thoughts of what to do after the race at bay, he focused in on his prize inching ever closer to the group again. Pulling along side the back of the group again he fixed his gaze ahead of him. A determined look on his face. Nothing would distract him this time. He wasn't quite back where was before, but it was close enough for now.
  25. Heart Shield galloped along at a fast clip as he tried to keep pace with the quickly moving pack of ponies. He had made a terrible mistake tho, he let his guard down and took his eyes off his path to talk to other ponies and sight see a little. He didn't see the rock in the path as he rapidly approached it. He was traveling along at an amazingly fast pace when his front hoof caught the rock sticking out of the ground, causing him to lose his hooving and go stumbling forward. "Wooah!" He shouted in a gasp as he tumbled over coming to halt after making a few tumbles kicking up dust everywhere. Trying to regain his bearings again Heart Shield got himself back up on his hooves as quickly as possible. The group was now off in the distance again. Annoyed at himself for not paying attention, Heart Shield shook himself off and took off as quickly as possible trying to salvage what little lost ground he could. He was a little sore from the spill, But he was determined to close the distance on the pack of ponies again. Trying to squeeze every last ounce of energy from himself he sped along trying to catch up again. It was late in the race now. He wasn't sure he could pass anypony now, but he didn't want to be the pony who crossed the finish line long after everypony else did. That would just be embarrassing.
