Grey Star ambled along tiredly, his hooves catching on what seemed like every stray rock in the path, causing him to stumble whenever he did so. His grey coat and black mane were both filled the red dust of the road. Around his shoulders was a dark brown and tattered cloak, the edges of which were almost completely falling apart, a sign that it had seen plenty of travel travel and wear. His eyelids seemed almost too heavy to keep open. His pace was slow but determined, one weary hoof after another. He felt as if he could drop right there on the spot, lay down and pass out. Sleep sounded heavenly at this point, as he had been deprived of it for days. But he had to keep going, had to get his message to the princess.

The DarknessYour're dreaming. Somehow you know you're dreaming because this can't be real. All around you there is nothing but darkness, black and unyielding.

You know the darkness and, somehow, the darkness knows you.
