The sun had rose and Amaryllis opened the curtains in the
living room. She walked to the couch and saw Star Cluster moving
his feet in his sleep. Amaryllis smiled, "He's dreaming.
I wonder what he's dreaming about?"
She lightly put her hoof on his shoulder and shook him till he
"I'm sorry but you've over slept. I'm sure you don't want
to miss breakfast," Amaryllis said.
Star Cluster yawned and smiled, "I wouldn't miss it. I love
Amaryllis smiled and blushed, "Hurry up."
She left the couch and went into the kitchen. Star Cluster soon
followed her into the kitchen. Amaryllis handed him his plate
then she picked up her plate and followed him into the dinning
room. Peaches was already sitting down eating. Amaryllis sat
and began to eat as she glanced up at Star Cluster. He was eating
slowly and staring at the table at times.
"Ummm, I saw that you were dreaming," Amaryllis said
trying to brake the silence in the room.
"Yes, I was," Star Cluster replied not saying anything
else about the dream.
"Was it bad or a good dream?" Amaryllis asked curiously.
"I don't know," Star Cluster replied. He stirred the
scrambled eggs staring at his plate as if he was in deep thought.
Amaryllis knew something was wrong. He hadn't been acting right
for a week now, ever since he remembered the name Luna.
"It's going to get cold," Amaryllis remarked.
"Oh, sorry," Star Cluster muttered.
Amaryllis continued to eat her breakfast as she watched Star
Cluster every now and then. He was unusually quiet and stares
at nothing. It worried her every time she saw him staring. What
was he thinking about? What was bothering him? Was it the dream
he had? Has more of his memories returned? Amaryllis wanted to
find out but she knew Star Cluster was obviously not in a talking
After breakfast she took Peaches outside to play with her
ball while Star Cluster sat and watched. Amaryllis sat next to
him and looked at him worriedly. Star Cluster looked at her and
smiled, "I'm fine. I'm just doing a lot of thinking."
Amaryllis smiled, "Try not to think to hard."
Star Cluster chuckled, then he continued watching Peaches kick
her ball. Peaches ran after the ball and kicked it high. The
ball landed and bounced from her. Peaches laughed and ran after
Amaryllis smiled at Peaches, she enjoyed seeing her daughter
laughing. Amaryllis looked at Star Cluster wondering if he was
still thinking hard. She saw he was staring at the meadow but
not paying attention to Peaches. Amaryllis leaned on him and
rested her head on his shoulder which made Star Cluster lose
his thought. He turned his head and smiled at her.
Just then Peaches kicked her ball and it rolled through the tall
grass, stopping in front of Star Cluster. Peaches ran to the
ball and stood holding it.
"Want to play with me?" Peaches asked Star Cluster.
"That sounds like a good idea. It'll get your mind off your
thoughts," Amaryllis told him.
"I'll try it," Star Cluster replied.
"Peaches take your ball and stand back. Star Cluster you
might want to stand back too. We'll pass the ball around,"
Amaryllis told him.
Star Cluster stood up and walked from Peaches. Amaryllis did
the same till they stood in a triangle shape.
"Ok, Peaches throw the ball," Amaryllis told her.
Peaches held the ball high and threw it as hard as she could.
Then Star cluster picked up the ball and threw it to Amaryllis.
Then she threw it to Peaches.
They continued to throw the ball to each other for a while.
Star Cluster looked at Amaryllis holding the pink ball. She smiled
at Peaches and got ready to throw the ball. Suddenly an image
flashed before his eyes. He remembered Luna holding a while flaming
"Star Cluster!" Amaryllis yelled.
Star Cluster blinked a few times and saw the ball sitting at
Amaryllis approached him worriedly, "Star Cluster, I know
your thinking but your getting me worried. What are you thinking
so hard about?"
Star Cluster picked up the ball and looked at it.
"Please tell me," Amaryllis begged. She wanted to find
out what's on his mind.
"I've been remembering bits and pieces of my life and other
ponies. What ever you do or Peaches does it seems to bring back
a piece of my memories. It's gotten so bad that it comes in my
dreams," Star Cluster explained, "Just a minute ago
you reminded me of Luna holding a white flaming ball but...it
wasn't a ball. I don't know what it was." Star Cluster leaned
down towards Peaches and gave her ball back, "I'm sorry
Peaches. I can't play today. I have to much on my mind. I can
play some other time, just not today though."
"Ok," Peaches said sadly.
"I'm going inside. Maybe I'll lay down," Star Cluster
Amaryllis watched as he walked back tot he house. She felt happy
that his memories are returning but she also felt sad that his
memories were coming at a fast rate.
