The forest was still, not a single sound contesting the hooffalls. They echoed deafeningly, even as the undergrowth did its best to muffle them. Applejack led the way, followed by Rainbow Dash, then Fluttershy and Rarity, with Pinkie Pie bringing up the rear of their tangled line.
The pink pony kept an eye on the ground, the smattering of pale light barely giving notice of the odd rock or fallen branch.
The trees broke away, becoming a wide open plateau that ended not far ahead. Applejack skidded to a stop, each pony behind her scattering with growing desperation. Pinkie herself was a mere nose away from Fluttershy's rump as she veered past.
"Where is she?" the farm pony yelled, sweeping her head across the clearing.
"Did we lose her?" Rarity panted.
"No way! We've come too far for that." Dash glowered. "She's gotta be somewhere in there."
Pinkie followed the blue pony's gaze across the rickety rope bridge.
