Star Cluster was in the kitchen staring out the window and
watching the sun setting. Amaryllis was on the couch reading
when Peaches sat on the couch next to her and leaned against
"It's time for you to go to bed," Amaryllis told her.
"Mommy," Peaches exclaimed and yawned.
"You're tired, Peaches," Amaryllis sat her book on
the couch and stood up with Peaches at her side.
"Can you read me a story?" Peaches asked.
"Sure. Would you like me to read from your favorite book?"
"Yeah!" Peaches cried excitedly and hurried to her
Amaryllis followed her.
Star Cluster walked to the living room and saw Amaryllis taking
Peaches to bed. He continued into the living room and looked
around. He noticed several pictures, some sat on tables and above
the fireplace. In one of the pictures he noticed three ponies,
Amaryllis and Peaches but the other he had never seen before.
Star Cluster walked up to the picture and held it in his hoof.
The other pony was light blue with pink, green and white hair.
Star Cluster stood wondering who the pony could be. He looked
at the other pictures and noticed the same pony. He set the picture
down and walked to the fireplace looking at the pictures. As
he stood and looked he noticed the room looked brighter with
a purple tent to it. He looked at the lamp next to the couch
but it wasn't bright enough to light up the room. Star Cluster
left the fire place and looked around for the light source. As
he walked past the couch he caught a glimpse of him reflection
on the window. Star Cluster stopped and looked at the window.
His eyes were fixated on his glowing image. Star Cluster looked
at his legs and body, to his great surprise, he was glowing.
His fur coat was giving off a light purple glow, lighting up
the room around him.
Star Cluster walked to the window to get a better look at himself.
He couldn't get over his glowing appearance. Through his reflection
he noticed the full moon shining brightly. Could his glowing
body be connected to the moon? He wasn't sure but somehow he
felt he was right.
Suddenly he heard Amaryllis gasping in shock. Star Cluster turned
and saw Amaryllis looking shocked.
"You're-you're...glowing," Amaryllis managed to say.
"I noticed," Star Cluster replied.
Amaryllis walked up to him and looked closely at his fur, then
she touched his coat and hair. Every strand of fur and hair was
glowing. Amaryllis found it very fascinating.
"How...I mean why are you glowing?" Amaryllis asked.
"I'm not completely sure but I think it has something to
do with the moon. I hadn't glowed during the time I spent here
till tonight and the moon is full," Star Cluster answered.
Amaryllis looked out the window and saw the full moon, "You
don't remember glowing before?"
"I don't know," Star Cluster replied as he went back
to staring at his reflection.
Amaryllis lightly touched his fur again still fascinated by the
glow. Star Cluster turned his head and looked at her curiously.
Amaryllis looked at him feeling embarrassed. "I..ummm...Sorry,
I guess I should be going to bed too. Goodnight Star Cluster,"
She turned and began walking out of the room when she head Star
Cluster reply, "Goodnight, Amaryllis." She smiled at
him and left the room. She was happy to hear him say her name.
He hadn't said it before till now."
She walked into her room and laid on her bed thinking about Star
Cluster glowing. She remembered his fur growing back and the
first time she saw his hairy feet and now he's glowing.
"He's not normal. I wonder where he's from?" Amaryllis
Star Cluster went to the couch and laid down. For some reason
the glow didn't really bother him, it was as if he was used to
it and yet he was still a bit surprised. He closed his eyes and
fell into a deep dreamless sleep.
