Amaryllis laid in bed restless. She looked out her window
and saw the sun had not yet rose, it was still very early in
the morning. She couldn't stop thinking about Star Cluster. What
was he remembering? She had watched him for the last few days
and observed his silence. She knew it was important that he got
his memories back but she never thought it would be so bothersome.
She threw the covers off of her and sat up in bed. She yawned
and stretched. She was still tired but she knew she wouldn't
be able to sleep.
"Maybe hot chocolate will help me sleep," Amaryllis
She got out of bed and left her room. She walked to the living
room and stopped. She looked at the couch in the darkness expecting
Star Cluster to be sound asleep but he wasn't there. She wondered
if he was outside walking through the forest or sitting in the
meadow. She looked at the fireplace looking for a note but there
wasn't any. She looked around the tables and still there was
She walked into the kitchen looking for a note but there wasn't
any. She was sure he would leave her a note. She looked out her
window and didn't see him.
"Is something wrong?" she heard a whispering voice
She looked at the dinning room and saw Star Cluster sitting at
the table drinking hot chocolate. She walked into the dinning
room and sat down.
"I was looking for you. What are you doing up so early?"
"I could ask you the same thing," Star Cluster replied.
"I...was worried about you so I got up to get something
to drink before going back to bed," Amaryllis replied.
"I had a dream," Star Cluster looked at his hot chocolate
and watched the steam rise from the cup, "I see more familiar
ponies. I couldn't sleep, I'm afraid to go back to sleep. I just
want to sleep without dreaming something for a change."
Amaryllis looked at him sadly, she felt sorry for him but she
knew there was nothing she could do.
"Maybe it'll help you if you could tell me what you have
been remembering so far," Amaryllis suggested.
"I remember the three black ponies when they were little.
I remember playing with them. I don't know who they are. I remember
seeing unicorns, Pegasus and ponies that live in water. I remember
seeing a very large castle. I...I remember seeing two dragons
fighting, the black ponies were older and they were there watching,"
Star Cluster paused, "I remember being alone. I was mad
and sad at the same time. I don't know why. I remember traveling
through the forest alone. Most of my memories so far are me being
alone. It bothers me, I don't know why I was alone so much."
Amaryllis stood up and approached him. She nuzzled his cheeks,
"Your not alone now and you'll never will be."
Star Cluster tiredly smiled, "I know. I'm glad you found
"You can thank Peaches for that," Amaryllis replied
"But why was I always alone?" Star Cluster asked himself.
"Why don't you give your thoughts a brake and go back to
bed?" Amaryllis suggested.
"I can't sleep and I don't want to dream more memories,"
Star Cluster replied.
"I'll sit with you till you fall asleep," Amaryllis
Star Cluster sat quietly thinking. He felt very tired and need
to sleep badly but he wouldn't be able to fall asleep.
"I'll be with you, Star Cluster," Amaryllis told him,
then she kissed him.
"Ok," Star Cluster replied.
He took his hot chuckled and sat it in the sink, then he went
to the living room and laid on the couch. Amaryllis sat next
to him smiling, "Close your eyes and don't open them."
"That won't help me sleep," Star Cluster told her.
"Try it anyways," Amaryllis replied.
Star Cluster closed his eyes and laid there for a while. He felt
Amaryllis laying her head on his pillow. He opened his eyes and
saw her still sitting next to him, resting her head against him.
"I'm still here," Amaryllis told him.
"I know," Star Cluster replied smiling. He closed his
eyes trying hard to sleep but t wasn't working. Then suddenly
he heard Amaryllis humming a tune, then he heard her soft whispering
words. She was singing softly and quietly to him.
He listened forgetting his worries and thoughts. He was more
interested in her singing. He soon felt his body relaxing, his
eyes no long wanted to open. His mind was still on Amaryllis
When she finished singing, she saw he was sound asleep. She leaned
forward and lightly kissed him, "Sleep well...my dear Star
Cluster." Then she stood up and quietly went bad in her
room no longer feeling worried for him.
