Early the next morning Stardust woke up in bed, stretching
and yawning. He threw the covers off of him and got out of bed.
Next to the bed on each side were Skyview and Starfire sleeping
soundly under their covers. Stardust shook Skyview. "Get
up and wake up Starfire."
Skyview woke up yawning. "Ok"
Stardust left the room feeling a bit odd without his crown and
collar. He walked down stairs with his brothers and saw Booster
in the living room.
Booster smiled when he saw the black ponies coming downstairs.
"Rosebud prepared breakfast for you."
"Great," Starfire yawned.
They walked into the dining room and sat down. Starfire couldn't
wait to start eating. He quickly ate and finished before his
"What's the hurry?" Skyview asked noticing how fast
"I'm just hungry."
"So am I but I don't pig out though," Skyview replied.
"I didn't pigging out!" Starfire exclaimed.
"Sure you did."
"No I didn't!"
Stardust cleared his throat to get their attention.
The two sat quietly, stared hard at each other
When breakfast was done, Buster stood in the living room waiting
"Ready?" Buster asked.
"Yes, lets go," Stardust answered.
They left the house leaving Skyview and Starfire in the house.
"Let's check Luna's usual places and then the rest of the
town. You can show me the spot where she was taken on the way
back," Stardust told him.
They walked to the ice cream shop, then to the lake in the park,
then to the docks by the ocean and all over town for the rest
of the day but Stardust didn't see Luna nor did he sense her
"She...really isn't here," Stardust muttered. "Show
me the spot."
Buster took him to the park where her locket was seen. Just then
a soccer ball rolled from over the hill and stopped at Stardust's
feet. Patch ran towards Stardust and stopped when she realized
who he was.
"Hi," Patch smiled but then her smile faded away. "I
guess you heard about Lunarstar."
"Yes I have," Stardust replied. "and you're one
of her friends?"
"Did she happen to tell you anything?" Stardust asked.
"Well," Patch thought hard. "Other than her dreams,
no she didn't."
"Dreams?" Stardust asked.
"Yeah, something about...dragons."
"I remember that!" Buster exclaimed. "Shortly
after she returned here to this world, she had a nightmare about
dragons. It was also a stormy night and she didn't sleep that
"What about the dream?" Stardust asked.
"I don't remember. Let me get the others, maybe they'll
remember," Patch suggested.
"Yes, please do that and meet me at Luna's house,"
Stardust told her.
"Ok," Patch took the ball and ran up the hill, then
she kicked it. "I can't play. I got to go!"
Stardust turned to Buster. "Let's hurry back."
They walked out of the park heading back to the house.
When they arrived at the house, Starfire and Skyview were
sitting on the couch waiting. Skyview was reading a book.
"Well?" Starfire asked.
"Nothing but I did talk to Luna's friend. She's going to
bring the rest of her friends here to talk."
"Do they know anything?" Skyview asked setting the
book on the table.
"Something about dreaming of dragons."
"Oh," Rosebud walked in from the kitchen. "Luna
had a dream of dragons one night."
"Buster was just telling me that," Stardust replied.
"Luna dreamt of dragons when she first got to Dream Castle,"
"What did she say about it?" Stardust asked.
"Nothing only that she was dreaming about dragons. I don't
think she really wanted to talk about it," Starfire replied.
After awhile the girls arrived at the house and knocked on
the door. Booster answered the door and let the girls in. The
gathered in the living room staring at the black ponies. It was
easy to see them in daylight that it was a night.
"Girls, did Luna say anything about her dreams?" Stardust
"She did say she dreams about a white dragon and another
dragon fighting," Starlight replied.
"A white dragon?" Starfire asked.
"The same white dragon that was at Dream Castle?" Stardust
"How can she even dream of that? She doesn't remember turning
into a large white dragon," Skyview pointed out.
"What else did she say, girls?" Stardust asked.
"Well she did dream about an island shaped like a dragon,"
Bright Eyes replied.
"Island?" the black ponies asked.
"Yes. I looked it up too. It's real. It's called Drakon
Island," Bright Eyes answered.
"The well known vacation spot?" Booster asked.
Stardust looked at him. "You know it?"
"Yes, it's just vacation spot. A place to get away and enjoy
yourself," Booster replied.
"We went there long before we found Lunarstar. It's a pretty
place to go and it's in a shape of a sleeping dragon. the natives
also has a tale about a dragon but it's been so long I can hardly
remember it," Rosebud added.
"Where is Drakon Island?" Stardust asked.
"Far across the ocean," Booster answered.
"What about Star Cluster?" Starfire asked. "He's
"The other Kingdoms are on the look out for him. Right now,
I want to find Luna then get Star Cluster," Stardust replied.
"Who?" Melody asked.
"Star Cluster is our little brother who had taken over my
kingdom," Stardust explained.
"Is he black like you?" Sweetheart asked.
"No he is purple with blue, yellow, orange and green hair,"
"Dark purple?" Bon Bon asked.
"Yes," Skyview answered.
"With...ummm, gold key or gold something around his neck?"
Bon Bon asked.
The black ponies looked at her surprisingly.
"It's a golden key," Stardust replied.
"H-how did you know that?" Skyview asked.
"He had hairy feet too," Bon Bon added.
"Bon Bon!" the girls shouted.
"I saw him," Bon Bon added.
"When?" Rosebud asked.
"Not to long ago. We were on our way here to watch a concert
and had popcorn that I brought. We passed him going up the street,"
Bon Bon replied.
"How can you remember that?" Melody asked.
"I had my favorite bag of popcorn with me," Bon Bon
"Star Cluster?...Here?" Stardust asked shockingly.
"It's not even possible. How could he have gotten through
the gate?" Skyview asked.
"He must have taken Luna," Starfire guessed.
"Yes but where?" Skyview asked.
"Drakon island," Stardust answered, "Fallon is
a dragon and Rosebud did say something about a tale of a dragon
on the island."
"So he took her there?" Starfire asked, "But why?"
"We must go there as soon as possible," Stardust told
"How?" Skyview asked, "Me and Starfire can't just
"I'll think of something," Stardust told him.
"Girls would you like something to eat before you go?"
"Sure," They replied.
Rosebud took them to the kitchen while the boys stood and continued
talking and planning for the rest of the day.
