It was morning and Skyview got out of his bed, yawing and
stretching. A pink pegasus walked in with a silver tray. She
was a bit nervous around Skyview and wanted to hurry and leave.
She set the tray on the table and then she quickly left. Skyview
walked to the table and picked up the silver lid, reveling three
large pan cakes. He sat on the floor and quickly ate them. He
then finished off his orange juice and left his room. He turned
left and walked to the next door. Just then, Starfire walked
out of his room and joined Skyview at the door.
Stardust was still eating when he heard a knock at his door.
"Come in," Stardust said, taking a sip of his orange
"Your still eating?" Starfire asked surprisingly.
"I got up late," Stardust replied.
"Still having those nightmares?" Skyview asked.
"Yes and it takes me a while to get to sleep afterwards."
He took a bite of his pancakes and looked at his brothers, "How
did you two sleep?"
"Pretty good," Skyview replied.
"I slept great," Starfire replied.
"You always do," Skyview replied, "weather you're
in a bed or on the grass."
"It's amazing you slept at all," Starfire remarked.
"Don't you two start in my room!" Stardust exclaimed.
He finished the last pancake and then stood up, "I'm going
downstairs to help the King and Banner make plans. I want you
two to make friends with Lunarstar."
"The Princess will be scared of us so it won't be easy,"
"Well for starters, just call her Lunarstar all her friends
do. She's not allowed to leave the castle walls so she won't
go far. You'll find her outside or in the Library or in her room.
You guys can get me if you have any trouble," Stardust said,
then he left his room.
"So where should we look?" Starfire asked.
"I don't know, let's just walk around until we find her,"
They left the room and headed down stairs. They reached the
bottom steps when Lunarstar almost bumped into them.
"I'm sorry Stard-," Lunarstar looked up, gasped and
she instantly winked out.
"Well, there she goes!" Starfire exclaimed.
"Lets split up. You looked around the castle while I check
outside," Skyview suggested.
Lunarstar winked outside in front of Buster, surprising him.
Charades was leaning on the wall and looking at the forest when
he heard Buster call her name.
"What's wrong?" Buster asked.
"N-nothing. I just wanted to see you guys," Lunarstar
"Oh," Buster replied with a smile.
"So Lunarstar, how are you doing living under the same roof
as the black ponies?" Charades asked.
"Oh, I...uh...fine I guess," Lunarstar replied.
"Fine?" Buster asked, he had a feeling things weren't
going fine like she said it was.
Suddenly Skyview appeared behind her, "Lunarstar I..."
Lunarstar gasped and instantly winked out.
"What's going on?" Charades asked.
"I just want to talk to her and make friends with her but
she won't stay long enough for me to say hardly anything,"
"Oh, we had that problem too a while back," Buster
"Keep trying," Charades suggested.
Skyview turned and looked at the castle then he winked out.
He appeared in the Library and looked around but didn't see
her. Just then, he heard the door above him open. He looked up
just in time to see Lunarstar wink out and Starfire walk in.
"I didn't know she was at the door," Starfire replied
after seeing the odd look on Skyview's face.
"Now where did she go?" Skyview replied.
"We could try her room," Starfire suggested. "Only
we don't know where that's at."
Skyview winked in front of Starfire. "Lets ask one of the
They left the library on the second floor and wondered through
the halls until they found a pony leaving a room with a pile
"Do you know where Lunarstar's room is?" Skyview asked.
The servant looked at them nervously. "She's...down the
hall on your left. Her room is the last door on the right."
"Thanks," Skyview replied.
They turned around and walked down the hall. Then they turned
the corner on to their left and stopped at the last door on the
right. They knocked on the door but there was no answer. Skyview
cracked the door open and saw Lunarstar on her bed curled in
a ball. It was obvious she was scared.
Skyview opened the door and was about to say something when she
suddenly winked out.
"I'm getting tired of chasing her," Skyview complained.
"It's no wonder she's so scared. She probably hasn't forgotten
when we caught her. She was scared to death of us," Starfire
"She certainly was. We came close to taking her to Dream
Castle..."Skyview paused. "when we were thrown back
knocking us out."
"That's when I saw her eyes turn green," Starfire added.
Skyview gave him a questionable look.
"I'm serious. Her eyes really did turn green," Starfire
"Well it doesn't matter now, that's all in the past. At
the moment, we have to get her to trust us."
"How?" Starfire asked.
"I'll go talk to Stardust. Wait here," Skyview winked
King Sea Mist, Banner and Stardust were in the throne room
on one end of the room at a table talking.
"There's a few I might know who would be willing to join
us," Banner replied.
"We can't get other Kingdoms to join us," King Sea
"Let me try and..." Stardust was interrupted when Skyview
"I'm sorry, Stardust but I can't get close enough to talk
"I'm sorry, but I have to go help my brothers," Stardust
said to Banner and the King.
"It's alright. We can talk more after dinner," King
Sea Mist replied.
"So what's happening?" Stardust asked skyview.
"We went all over the castle and outside chasing her, but
she just winks out."
Stardust was silent for a minute, thinking about something, "I
got it. Take me to her room."
Skyview's horn light up, he lowered his head to touch Stardust,
then suddenly they winked out, reappeared in Lunarstar's room.
Starfire was still in her room waiting. Stardust looked around
the room, he looked on her dresser then under her bed.
"She's not in here," Starfire commented.
"I know, I'm looking for something else," Stardust
turned around and saw what he was looking for. "There it
is." On the table on the other side of her room was the
rope. "Skyview, take that rope and I want you and Starfire
to meet me outside by the water fountain."
"Ok," Skyview replied.
"What are you going to do?" Starfire asked.
Stardust turned around, leaving the room. "I'm going to
