Melody laughed, kicking up her heels gleefully. Her father was taking her out for a picnic, something they rarely got to do together. They rarely got to do anything together. Tenor was always busy with his special work with the Princess’. But today, he’d came home especially to be with her. As young as she was, Little Mel hadn’t yet realized that his coming home for a day like this meant that her father would be leaving for a long time. “Hurry up Daddy!” Mel yelled happily, pausing on the top of the hillock and looking back towards him, wiggling her tail gleefully. The young blue stallion smiled at his small daughter and scooped her up onto her back as she shrieked with glee. “You wanna fly, Mel? Huh? You wanna fly?” “I wanna fly, daddy!” She shrieked. “Hold on tight!” Tenor pressed a small button on the band if metal on his back and a pair of small, thin, streamlined wings shot out of his back. Small rocket propellers poked out the back of his wings. Tenor ran a few steps forward and took off into the air, speeding at a pace Script would have panicked to see. Listening to his little girl shriek with excitement and glee, Tenor gave a bittersweet sigh. This would be the last time he saw his little girl, his wife and his friends for a year, at the least. Celestia’s orders, he had to go undercover Ina. Compound south of Saudi Arabia. He was working in connection with the Arabian government, and he couldn’t squirm out of this, no matter how hard he tried. He was the perfect stallion for the job, due to his mechanic wings, a wedding gift from Echour, that allowed him to be fast, silent, stealthy and many, many other things. They were an amazing gifts, and they’d melded into his body and become part of his DNA. It was unremoveable. Unchangeable. Like real wings, they were as much a part of him as his green eyes and his whirlwind cutie mark. The only difference was, this part of him was tearing him away from his family.
