Duchess finally finds a little bit of happiness since her mother Melay died. When she joined Amaleki's herd, she felt safe, peaceful like in the past. She is still shy and aggressive sometimes but calm. She doesn't really show her feelings and stay introverted and cold with the other mares.
Amaleki is kind with her and they walk together sometimes, under a sunset between the mountains. It is hard for her to open her heart. She tried and failed many times. But he is comprehensive and let her taking the time.
One day, a night under the Aurora borealis, Duchess smiles, for the first time since she met him, a shy smile. And a tear runs. Amaleki sees it but says nothing and they watches the night sky until dawn.
The saddest people smile the brightest.
