“Why won’t you submit to me?” Grimhoof demanded. “Why must you always try to come ahead?”

“Because I cannot be owned, Grim,” Flash spat back. “And I do not try to get ahead of you, I just do.”

“You are not better than me,” Grimhoof growled. “You can never be better than me.”

“Why is this so important to you? Why can’t you accept that I’m more skilled than you?”

“Because I won’t lose you. I can’t.” Grimhoof drew himself up, towering over the ever-defiant Flash. “If you’re better than me, then what reason would you have to stay with me? Only the best can have you, and if I’m not the best, then we can’t be together.”

“That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard!” Flash snarled. “This obsession is completely out of hoof.”

“It’s not an obsession, I know I’m better.”

“Yet I fly faster and harder than you. I’m a higher rank now and, at this point, I’m sick of how you act around me. Tell me why I shouldn’t leave right now!”

“Because you’ll never be rid of me,” Grimhoof growled. “I’ll hound you every step of the way until I prove you’re beneath me. Where you belong.”

“Fine, Grim,” Flash replied with a sneer. “Then you can just spend the rest of your life watching my flanks as I speed past you.”
