Unicorns vs. Zombies

It's supposed to be an age old question.  
Zombies vs. Unicorns
But frankly I haven't heard of it until Amy made us pick a team. So that said. I must be very young. :)

I, being an inspiring romance novel writer (rofl) made up a story for ya. :)

There was a magical land hidden in the depths of an ancient rainforest where no man has set foot on. It was a beautiful place where Unicorns lived.

Whitey was the stallion of the Unicorn herd. Beautiful muscular horse with a long silver horn and a main so magnificent it would radiate all colors of the rainbow when sunrays would beam over it. Must I say he was every Unimares dream?

He would skim through the grounds of his territory every day making sure everyone was safe and happy. Of course he would check out the mares along the way. He always had a thing for a beautiful red head Ruby that would tease him with batting her glamorous eyelashes at him and swinging her ruby red tail in rhythm of his heartbeat. She was a tease but he didn’t mind as he knew that one day she will be his.

One day he woke up with an ominous feeling in his gut. He was cautious all day looking for signs of trouble as he knew his intuition never failed him.

It was at the very North edge of his territory when he heard a ruffling noise. It was the kind he couldn’t contribute to any animal living in the Unicorn land. The noise was somewhat sinister making his muzzle snort and his main stand up in defensive manor. He wasn’t afraid though because it wasn’t in his nature. After all he was a Unicorn.

All of a sudden he heard a frightful scream. The kind only a Unimare in pain could exhale. He never heard it before as the Unicorns were very illusive and very hard to capture but he remembered the myths that were passed on to him from his father and his father before him. They were gruesome stories of capturing Unicorns with fair maidens to steal their magical horns.

He hurried through the forest growth in direction of the horrible screams. The closer he got the louder his heart beat as he recognized the voice of his beloved Ruby. When she came into his vision he was horrified at the sight. She laid there on the emerald moss in a pool of her own silver blood as these nasty rotting creatures took bites out of her beautiful body.

In his mind there was rage building as well as a hint of confusion. How ever are these creatures still standing drinking the Unicorns blood?

It is known for the blood of a Unicorn to be deadly to every thing living for the blood of an innocent and pure creature should never be caused to flow. It hit him then. They might be standing but they are not living. He remembered his father’s words telling him about Zombies.

Another tiny yelp escaped from the battered Ruby. He stormed into the crowd of nasty creatures and horned them one by one until none of them were left standing. He stood triumphantly over their bodies for a second with red streams coming down from his horn then turned to his beloved.

Her body was half eaten but he knew she will be all right because the only way for the Unicorn to die was to remove his or hers horn. Ruby’s horn was splattered with her silver blood mixed with the red of her attackers but still soundly attached to her head.

A couple of days have passed but Ruby wasn’t getting any better from the attack. They figured she caught some sort of infection from the beasts which was turning her into one of them. The whole herd was terrified for her and for themselves. There were even some that were considering killing her to protect their loved ones.

But Whitey wouldn’t hear of it. There was still another chance. He offered a part of his horn to heal her. Unicorn’s horn is said to have magical healing powers. It heals diseases and neutralizes poisons and he being the stallion his horn is ten times more powerful. The magic worked. Ruby recovered almost instantaneously and was given back the red shimmer of her coat.

Needless to say Whitey and Ruby ended up getting married giving life to beautiful Unifoals and living happily ever after. Ever after being a long time since Unicorns live forever.

So it's Amy's birthday today and I'm helping to celebrate. :) I'm also linking to The Butterfly Effect cause there will be Mythical Creatures there all week long. And you don't want to miss my video tutorial so make sure you stop by. :)
