Missing ~ *

Post  Shiori on Thu Dec 15, 2011 8:47 pm

Hachiro snorted, his heartsong slipping past his lips quietly. His head was lowered, and his mane was falling into his eyes. His eyes sparkled in a timid way, and his hoofbeats were nearly inaudible. His tail swished back and forth gently, and he lifted his head, the words of his song coming from his mouth, right from his heart, evoking the emotional reaction he got whenever he sang this song.
"Are you searching for me? Why did you go; I have to stay. Now I'm reaching for you... Will you wait, will you wait? Will I see you again?" The words became louder as he put his heart into his song, wondering where the other mares had gone. He hadn't smelled a mare in a while. His voice silenced slightly before he began singing again: "Why did you go? I have to stay. Now I'm reaching for you..." When his heartsong stopped, he suddenly asked himself, "Where are you?" He wasn't talking merely to his to-be soulmate, but to himself. He'd been lost ever since the... accident, as he referred to it.
His mother had been killed by a cougar, trying to protect him. And ever since then, his bipolar nature took over his senses. He became easily angered, then easily offended, easily hurt. Hachiro stared in front of him. All he wanted now was another mare to love; another mare who would love him in turn, just like his mother had. He wanted to fill the void in his heart his mother had left. He wanted to feel the wonderful love his mother had given him: he wanted a mare who would accept him no matter how he acted sometimes.
He knew finding his soulmate would be harder than he would want. Not many horses--stallion or mare--stayed around him very long. He wanted a mare who would accept him for who he was, and suddenly, as he opened his muzzle, lifting his head and singing seemingly up to the heavens, his heartsong spilling from his lips.

Stardust wandered through the hills. She had heard once, that these were the singing hills, where creatures came to sing and find their soulmates. Still, each time she had come, they had seemed empty and silent. Lonely, in a way-but it really made no difference to her. She had been alone quite a while, wandering on her on own. Her home, where she had been born, had suffered a terrible drought. Many stayed, hoping the rain would return, along with the food, but she had gone, though she was still quite young. But since then, she had remained alone, wandering, seeking a place to call home.

Walking on through the hills, she was surprised to hear the sound of voice-a male voice, singing out. She paused, her ears swiveling as she listened, before she began to move toward it, her own voice carrying through the hills as she began to sing, willing to take a chance, even if didn't end up working out.


All those days watching from the windows
All those years outside looking in
All that time never even knowing
Just how blind I've been
Now I'm here, blinking in the starlight
Now I'm here, suddenly I see
Standing here, it's all so clear
I'm where I am meant to be

Hachiro's ears pricked forward, his head coming up and his neck-bone going rigid. His ears swiveled around in every direction, trying to put a pinpoint location on wherever the heavenly sound was coming from. His dun coat shone brightly under the sunrays, completely betraying the stallion he really was. His mood immediately bounced from down to up, as a result of his bipolar nature. He hoped that whoever this mare was would be willing to put up with his mood swings. Then again, it was unlikely she'd want to be around him. His heartsong wasn't the cheeriest of heartsongs, for sure.

He snorted and trotted towards the noise, coming over a hill and looking down, his stance being held regally as if he were a king. He shook out his mane and stomped his hoof, his muscles rippling under his dun coat. Looking down on the momentary dip in the landscape, he spotted a mare. She was a beautiful mare: a shining bay color. Her coat gleamed very much like his; or perhaps that was simply his perception of her. He opened his maw once more, letting out a single line of his song, "Where are you?"

The tune was short, sweet, and to the point. He pranced down, his legs lifted high with each step, as he brought himself down towards the mare. It was an uneasy tension of possible rejection that caused his stride to lose some of its pep, and by the time he reached the mare he'd slowed himself to a dull and easy-swinging walk. His head was lowered considerably than from what it'd been atop the hill, but he raised it to look her in the eyes. She had beautiful eyes, as well.

"I'm Hachiro," he said, tossing his mane and letting out an indifferent snort. "And who may you be to give me the honor of your presence?"

Stardust spotted the stallion approaching as he sang out one line of his song. He stood proudly at the crest of the hill, but as he approached her, moving down the hill, his gait became more uneasy, his head held lower. She looked him over-He was quite handsome, really, his dun hide shining in the sun as he approached. Of course, looks were far from everything-she'd hate to be stuck with someone she couldn't stand.

"My name is Stardust," She told him, dipping her head politely, "It is a pleasure to meet you, Hachiro."

Hachiro positioned himself in a more confident manner; she was the first mare who hadn't turned and left him at first sight. Most mares judged him by his heart song, which really didn't fit his bipolar mood swings. A wave of apprehension hit him and he shifted on one hoof nervously, listening to her with ears pricked forward and tail flagged.

"That's a lovely name," Hachiro said, smiling brightly. Of course, he was trying to flatter her, or impress her, or something, but his attempts weren't wholehearted. He hadn't met a mare yet that could put up with him, so what would make her any different? Ignoring the thoughts that he had in his mind, he tried to come up with a good conversation starter that wouldn't make him sound like a complete idiot, like 'why are you here?' It was quite obvious as to why, so he'd have to think up another question.

Hachiro lifted his head and looked elsewhere for a moment before staring back at her coating with a look of obvious admiration in his eyes. "Your coat looks quite well-kept," Hachiro commented, bringing his muzzle to her shoulder, but only for a moment. It was well-kept indeed: shiny, soft-looking, and it just gave off an air of rippling health. It was nice, he thought. He smiled at her, hoping his compliment made any sense at all, because the more he thought about it, the more stupid it sounded.
