|It's about a young unicorn that's born in the forest of Avalon, who has powerful magic. With her magic, Silverwing must try and save the kingdom and her new found friends.
The winds raced, ripping trees from the ground. Lightening flashed around, thunder cracked in the night sky. No tree nor plant nor animal or human was safe from the storm that threatened the night-sky. Except for one miracle was about to happen, a rare event. For in that storm, a magical unicorn was born to Lightening. For an ancient prophecy had come true that night. For it is written in the great books of Avalon, that if a unicorn is born on such a stormy night, then it will have strenghts and power beyond anything that has ever existed in Avalon. The foal’s coat shone like the purest and brightest silvers, its eyes were that of true sapphires and it’s horn was bright gold. The mother named her foal Silverwing meaning honour, spirit. Though she had no idea how important her young foal was too become. It soon became apparent that Silverwing had great and good spirit. She was stronger than any other was, kinder, more caring. She also became very bold and adventurous. As the years passed Silverwing listened to her mother, Lightening, she told Silverwing all about humans and their world, and how some human’s will hunt to kill animals for sport. Silverwing did not like this. Lightening taught Silverwing her most precious and valuable lesson of all, the lesson of magic. Lightening taught Silverwing, how to use the magic of her horn, to heal all living things, how to bring lightening from the horn. “Mother, why must I continue with all these lesson’s, I know the why of life, I know how to heal or harm, I know how to be kind and compassionate towards other’s,” Silverwing asked bored from the lesson’s. “Silverwing, my child you are a very special unicorn, you were born to do great thing’s. For are like no other unicorn. For they do not have a coat that shines like pure silver or have sparkling blue for their eyes. You my child were born for some great mission of the world. Though do not ask me what I just know you were born, and your destiny leads you to great adventures,” was the reply from Lightning. Silverwing did not know how to reply to this, though Lightening soon discovered that her young foal was now happier to do the tasks and lesson which Lightening taught her. One day Lightening heard a noise in the distant, she became alert and warned Silverwing to stay close. Time passed slowly, nothing came except for a loud cry and smell of smoke in the distant; Lightening began to pace for she knew smoke meant fire. The wind was strong and blowing in their direction. Though Lightening turned to Silverwing, she was unusually calm, her eyes where just starring in the direction of smoke. Though Lightening though that this was the first time Silverwing saw smoke that she was amaze, but Lightening turn to Silverwing again, something in her eyes got her attention it was people, running with bales of water. Lightening saw that they were fighting the flames and were winning. All of sudden Silverwing s startled herself back. Lightening did not know what to say she was amazed at what she saw. “Silverwing, how did you do that,” asked Lightening. “Do what?” asked a rather dazzled Silverwing. “Your eyes I saw what was happening in the village,” Lightening asked bewildered. “I don’t know, I just had this urgency to see what was happening, the next thing I know. I was seeing it like I was there, in the middle of it, but I weren’t,” Silverwing tried to explain, but she didn’t understand it herself. “You my child have an exceptional gift, you are truly born to do great things,” Lightening responded. “Like what mother,” Silverwing asked. “I don’t know, child. I simply don’t know,” came Lightning’s response. Over the next few days, Silverwing’s exceptal talent grew stronger, and more powerful. Soon Silverwing could run faster than any other forest creature, Jump higher than the antelope. Though Lightning didn’t know how to handle Silverwing’s new gift’s, she never treated her any different, unfortunately Silverwing’s forest friends, once her gift’s came apparent. They soon drifted away for the reason they were afraid of Silverwing’s power. Silverwing grew more and more lonely, as the days went passed, and more of her friends deserted her. Though she knew her mother would always be there, she wanted more than her mother did for company. So one day Silverwing decided to travel the world, to see for her, and to try and make new friends along the way. Also to look for her true purpose in life, than just a unique one of a kind unicorn. Though Lightning tried to talk her high-spirited daughter out of going, Silverwing was determined to find her true self and reason for being. On the following dawn Silverwing awoke, full of energy and high spirit’s she was ready to go. “Becarefull my brave daughter, the world is a dangerous place, men and human’s will stop at nothing to capture a Click here to read the rest of this story (466 more lines)
