Finally. He could land. Under normal circumstances the Nightmare would be able to continue flying for some time but he was a fair way away from his usual power source as well. But it had seemed like a good idea to come to this place in order to try and find more sources of power. If he managed that then he would be praised by his Master and he himself would get stronger. Strength was good. Strength meant that it would be easier to defeat the Guardians with fear.
With a snort, Onyx landed on the ground and shook his mane. Although he was made of Nightmare sand he was still traditionally a horse. There was nothing wrong with him having the mannerisms of a horse. At least he hadn't been told off for it yet.
First off, the Nightmare sniffed the air to see if there was anything worthwhile nearby and by that he meant any sleeping children (to create more Nightmares) or fear (as a power source). There was a slight sense of fear in the air, but it was nothing worth chasing up. Especially where he was. Onyx was unfamiliar with this land so it would be disastrous if he encountered a creature or Guardian who's weakness he didn't know. Or one he was unable to fight. It could easily lead to his downfall and his Master picking a new head Nightmare - which sent a shiver down his spine.
Once again, he looked around the area. It seemed that he was in a clearing with no real sense of humanity nearby. From where the scent of fear was, the nearest human town was a fair while away - too far for anyone to bother coming to try and find him. But that didn't eliminate the threat of a Guardian.
Onyx moved closer towards a small flower on the grass and bent down to get a better look. It was weird. Human valued flowers highly and used them as a way of communication (from what he could remember) and even some Guardians drew their power from them. All they meant to him was something in the way - they could represent the children of this world. In the way but a source of power for the Guardians. Snorting again, he crushed the flower and looked at his surroundings again. Hopefully no one would come near him and complicate things.
