Luna sat for while crying till she started to get a headache.
Her sobbing became quiet while she looked around.
"What do I do?" Luna asked herself.
She stood up and scanned the forest but all she saw were trees,
bushes, rocks and mountains. She slowly began walking in the
direction the pony was going. Maybe she could still catch up
to her. She walked deeper into the forest while noticing the
forest floor was covered in more large plants, she could hardly
see the ground. She could hear her hoofs crunch on the leafy
plants and twigs on the ground. The trees became shorter and
the leaves looked fuller in the branches. The ground felt as
if it was getting steeper. Luna stopped next to a tree and rested.
She looked around and noticed she was on a hill. Luna looked
ahead of her at a steep rocky cliff and wondered if she could
see where she was from there. She had walked far and had calmed
down a lot since she first saw the pony. She knew she would get
home one way or another, but how was her problem. The forest
didn't look like the forest she had seen. It looked more like
a tropical forest.
"This can't be. This can't be a tropical forest. They're
only on islands," Luna thought but the more she looked around
the more she was convened she was on a tropical island.
Just then she felt something rubbing on her horn. Luna looked
up and gasped. She jumped to her feet and moved away from it.
On a branch above where the spot she sat in was a large and long
snake. Luna stood and stared at it.
"That's huge," Luna thought.
She decided she had rested long enough and began walking. She
looked up in trees as the hill became more steeper. There were
green birds with orange, yellow and blue on them. Some looked
pink or white. Other birds were more red and some were quite
small. Luna stopped and stared at them, they were indeed pretty
to look at. Their feathers fluffed out as they stretched their
After a while of watching the birds she began to hear her stomach
rumble. She was hungry but didn't know what she could eat. She
left the birds and continued walking.
She climbed the hill to the top of the cliff but when she looked
out from the edge, all she saw was another hill in her way but
she could tell the forest was very large. Her stomach growled
turning in knots. She left the cliff and walked through the forest
hoping to find something to eat. The leafy ground became clear
turning into grass and dirt. She looked around the area and suddenly
felt something squishy under her hoofs. She lifted her foot and
saw she had stepped on a banana. Luna looked up in the tree and
saw a cluster of bananas hanging low. Some were green but most
were yellow. Luna saw only a few that were bright yellow. She
stood on her hind legs and pulled the two yellow bananas off.
then she walked from the tree and sat down to eat them.
After she had eaten the bananas, she stood up and began walking.
Now that her stomach was no longer making noises she felt thirsty.
She walked around till she came to a clearing on a hill. She
looked down and saw a small lake surrounded by trees, brushes
and rocks. At the water was the yellow pony she had seen earlier.
Luna wasn't about to run to the lake and risk losing her again.
Luna winked out and winked in behind the pony who was drinking
"Excuse me," Luna said.
The pony lifted her head and swirled around in surprise. Her
light pink eyes stared at her and then she ran down the small
rocky stream. Luna ran after her in the stream.
"Wait please," Luna begged, but the pony continued
to run. Luna followed her between rock walls and short bushy
cliffs. The yellow pony turned from the stream behind the cliff.
Luna turned after her but her back leg slipped. Luna fell in
the water and continued sliding down the stream, going down hill
even faster. Suddenly there was a drop and she fell into a deep
pool, Luna screamed as she hit the water. She held her breath
underwater and tried to swim to the surface. When she finally
surfaced the water, she took a deep breath and quickly swam to
the grass. She climbed out of the water and sat down breathing
"Why do I even bother?" Luna thought. "I'm tired
of chasing her. I'll find someone else. She can't be the only
Luna stood up and rung the water out of her long white tail and
then her long white mane.
She rapidly flapped her wings until they were damp. She shook
her coat until the water no longer dripped. Luna continued walking
towards the hill not even caring if she ever saw that pony again.
After half the day went by Luna began to feel dry. The ground
had leveled out and a sound she kept hearing was getting louder.
She followed the sound through the forest to a clearing and continued
walking till she came upon a river. The water rushed past her,
crashing against rocks as it roared.
Luna sat and watched. It fascinated her to see how wild the river
Suddenly she heard a faint shout. Luna stood up and looked around
but didn't see anything. Was she just imagining it? Luna wasn't
sure. After awhile she heard the shouting again but a little
louder. Luna followed the river as she continued to hear the
shouting get louder. Suddenly Luna saw that same yellow pony
in the river. She was caught, and the water current taking her
down the river fast.
"Help!" the pony cried. She kicked her front hoofs
to try and keep herself above water.
Luna turned and ran after her but the current was too fast. Luna
flapped her wings and flew even faster over the river. When she
had finally caught up to her, she held her front hoofs out. The
pony quickly grabbed Luna's hoofs. The pony was too occupied
by the wild river to even notice a flying unicorn.
Luna tried to stop but the current was too strong. Luna desperately
wanted to help the pony.
"I can do this. Dad said I tore the Apeton Kingdom apart.
This should be easy, " Luna thought. She closed her eyes
and tried to concentrate on the great power she had used several
Suddenly she felt something, a feeling of great power emerging
to her horn. Luna's horn began to glow. The yellow pony looked
up and gasped. She was surprised to see a flying unicorn and
even more surprised to see her horn glowing. Luna concentrated
hard on the yellow pony, trying to lift her only she thought
too hard and the yellow pony flew out of the water with Luna
They landed on the grass by the river. The yellow pony coughed
and breathed heavily. Luna sat up and rung the water out of her
"Sorry," Luna heard the pony say. She looked at the
pony surprisingly. She was actually talking to her.
"W-what?" Luna asked not sure if she heard her right.
"Sorry...for running from you." The pony took several
deep breaths than sat up looking at Luna. "I didn't think
you were...real. I thought you were someone dressed up in a costume
trying to get me to come close to you. I thought you were some
kind of treasure hunter," the pony explained.
"I just want to know where I'm at," Luna replied.
"Oh, well your on Drakon Island."
"What?!" Luna cried. "I am? really?"
The pony looked at her surprisingly. "How did you get here?"
"My uncle. I ran from him and he's still out looking for
me," Luna felt a tear fall down her cheek. She lifted her
hoof and wiped it away. "I just want to go home."
"Well, maybe my father can help but I'm not going to see
him for another week. Your welcome to tag along with me till
then but you must promise me. Anything I find, is mine. Anything
you find is mine."
"You can keep anything you want as long as I can get home,"
Luna told her.
The pony smiled. "Great, Well...my name is Pineapple."
Pineapple stood up and looked at her horn to her feet. "It
fits you perfectly. You pure white like the moon."
Luna stood up and smiled. "That's why my dad named me that."
"Well lets get going. We have a lot of looking to do,"
Pineapple turned and began walking up river.
"What are we looking for?" Luna asked.
"I can't tell you. I'm not allowed to tell anyone. If you
see anything odd let me know."
"Ok," Luna looked at the river. "Ummm, how did
you get in the river?"
"I tried to cross an old log," Pineapple replied. "I
know it was stupid of me."
"Well I can get you across or anywhere else you want to
go," Luna proposed.
Pineapple smiled at her. "Really?"
"Well, this could make my search easier," Pineapple
They continued to follow the river as they talked.
