SilverRain just smiled at her. He couldn't impress upon her enough just how beautiful she was, so he simply nodded. He laughed at her question.

"I suppose it's good having a mother in some ways...and bad in others," he said, rolling his eyes comically. "Like I said, she and my father have taught me everything I know, but then there's also the nagging and over protective behaviour associated with parents to go along with that." He smiled, good naturedly. He gazed at her steadily, trying to read her. The comment about being a good mother had made him smile despite himself. She certainly would...

He rustled his wings when she mentioned them, and spread them wide, the feathers dancing in the breeze. "I've flown before," he said. "I taught myself when I was a foal...I was angry with Chaos then, so I suppose it was anger driven. Flying low is not that bad...you're not that afraid then...closer to the ground I suppose." He had the sudden urge to show off a bit. Crouching low, he ran a short distance and kicked off powerfully with his hind legs, leaping up into the sky. Gliding low for a few moments, he contented himself to simply soar. He proceeded to land with an ease that suprised even him, coming to a trotting halt beside Tinsel.

"See? It's not that bad. You should try. It get's better every time," he said smiling encouragingly.

Tinsel watched with curiously, amazed and yet shy for having been staring at him. "That.. was amazing! You mut be strong to fly like that! You're graceful too..." She silenced herself at last with a blush and nodded to herself. "I don't fly high... I flutter, like the creature which my wings come from." She paced in a graceful motion and twirled slowly into the air as her wings beat rapidly, light flashing off the translucent soft colour and making them glow. She landed gently, barely making a sound. "I feel so weird flying..." She finally realized he had been standing next to her when he landed, and now she was right beside him again! "I.. uhmm..." She hooved the ground nervously and dipped her head, eyes peering shyly out from icy mane at him.

He smiled at her flying and nodded his head encouragingly at her.

"See? It's not that bad. And you do a good job at it!" When she landed she was right beside him. Her presence was intoxicating.. and she was so pretty... He smiled gently at her shy behaviour and decided to take a chance. He lowered his head down to her eye level, and nuzzled her lightly, so nervous about her reaction that he believed he was shaking.

She stepped back immediately and gave him wide, surprised eyes. They weren't angry or hurt, simply shocked. It was like an eternity before her mouth closed and her eyes were just a little less wide. "W...why did you do that? I don't understand..." She was confused, and didn't know why. It had been her who had wanted to be near him, and here he was openly displaying affection yet... she hadn't expected that it would feel so... dizzying. Her head was spinning and her cheeks were on fire. She hadn't been prepared for what taking that bold step in meeting him had meant. She felt drawn to him, and every emotion was unexplainable to her. She felt very much exposed and alone in that moment, and somehow, she just wanted to leap at the amazing stallion in front of her, and have him accept her, confmort her... maybe even... love her?

Shocked and slightly scared himself, SilverRain pulled back quickly, lowering his head extremely aware of her, and her reaction. Eyes to the ground, he stuttered somewhat himself.

"I....I don't know....I guess....." he let the sentence hang, not willing to finish it for fear that she didn't feel the same. His startlingly green eyes raised, and met hers squarely, looking, searching for something, anything... He was desperately afraid, but he tried not to let it show. His emotions rolled, all into one confused jumble of indiscernable feeling.

An inner voice kept telling him to stop being such a coward. He wanted to listen to it. It was the side he was familiar with, not this afraid Serian mess! He regained some of his composure, straightening up slowly, eyes still fixated on Tinsel, never breaking his soul searching gaze. Head raised high and proud, a stance that any Serian would have said was entirely like both of his parents, he quickly switched his gaze to the horizon. He was captivated by her. He hoped that she didn't reject him entirely.... he'd never be the same if she did.

Tinsel's eyes now were curious as well as confused as she met his gaze, unflinching. Now she wanted to know more than she was afraid of anything inside her. She shook her head and took a step forward. "No... tell me why.. I must know..." Her legs threatened to collapse beneath her and her tail shook now and then, twitching with her tight nerves. "P-please..." Her face was tight with confusion and something resembling hurt. It hurt her to know he was hiding something.. she kenw it was important. Her heart raced, he had to have done that for a reason. 'Oh please tell me why!' She screamed but outside she just trembled, watching him like a captive awaiting her death penalty. As he looked to the sky she realized that he had regained his composure and her hopes flickered on indecision. His emotions were well masked, was this new sign of strength indicating he was preparing himself to say what would tear her apart? Or was he finding himself?... much the way she could not...
