The sun had set and the sky got dark. Buster and Charades
finished dinner and was leaving to head to their apartment.
"Bye, see you in the morning," Charades called to them
from the door.
"Bye," Luna replied standing in the living room.
Buster and Charades left, shutting the door behind them. Luna
hurried to the window and peeked outside while making sure no
one was out. She stood and watched as they left the yard.
"Lunarstar, it's getting late. You should get to bed,"
Rosebud told her.
Luna turned from the window and walked up to Rosebud. "Can't
I stay up a little bit?"
"Lunarstar, you have school in the morning," Rosebud
Luna felt a bit disappointed. She was hoping to go outside for
"Go on. Time for bed," Booster urged her.
Rosebud hugged her. "Goodnight."
"Goodnight," Luna hugged her parents then she hurried
upstairs to her room.
Luna climbed in bed and laid down under her blanket. As she rested
her head on her pillow she could hear her parents walk up the
steps heading to their room. Booster peeked in her room and saw
that she was in her bed. "Goodnight, Lunarstar."
"Goodnight, Dad," Luna replied.
Booster closed the door when he saw Luna had closed her eyes.
She felt her body relaxing. Her eyes were getting too heavy to
open and soon she had fallen fast asleep. The house was quiet,
not a sound could be heard except for the clock on her wall ticking
but it didn't bother Luna.
It was after midnight and Luna began to dream. It started
out with a ball in flames, a white hand with claws grabbed the
ball, disintegrating to smoke.
"Kesia," a voice whispered
Suddenly there were two dragon's fighting fiercely in the sky.
There was a dark red dragon and a white dragon. As they fought,
the white dragon blew a rainbow smokey mist. The red dragon gasped
and was soon covered in the rainbow misty cloud. He began to
glow, then turned to a ball of blue flames. Suddenly the white
dragon turned and saw a dark green dragon approach, his mouth
wide open showing his long fangs and sharp teeth.
"Ahhh!" Luna yelled as she jumped up from her pillow.
Her heart was racing and a tear fell from her cheek. Luna rubbed
her face with her hooves. She felt hot and noticed her cheek
was wet. Was she crying? The dream wasn't sad, so why would she
Just then Rosebud and Booster walked in her room looking tired
"Lunarstar, are you alright?" Rosebud asked.
Luna jumped but she quickly noticed it was just her mother. "I'm
"Did you have a dream?" Booster asked.
"Yeah, a...dream," Luna mumbled. She remembered the
first half of her dream but not the second half. The white dragon
was different than other dragons she had seen in book and movies.
Was it really a white dragon?
"Lunarstar, are you sure your ok?" Rosebud asked noticing
her sudden silence.
"I'm fine," Luna replied as she tried to calm herself
"What were you dreaming?" Booster asked.
"Dragons fighting," Luna replied tiredly.
"Dragons?" her parents replied.
"Well, it was just a dream, Lunarstar," Booster told
her. "Try and get some sleep."
"Ok," Luna replied.
Her parents hugged her goodnight and then they left her room.
Luna laid her head on the pillow and tried to sleep but every
time she closed her eyes she could see the green dragon's fangs
coming towards her. She opened her eyes when she heard the faint
sound of the wind blowing. She looked at her window and gasped.
There was a shadow dancing on her curtain. Luna threw the covers
over her ears and head with her face poking out from underneath.
She was starting to feel scared as images of the dragons raced
through her mind. She could see the dragons fighting on her curtains.
She laid in her bed shaking from fear. As she watched, the shadows
danced wildly and the wind started to howl louder. She shook
under the covers thinking about her father Stardust and how much
she wished he was with her. She always felt safer with him. Luna
jumped out of bed and grabbed her locket from her jewelry box,
then she hurried out of the room.
The hall was dark, and the wind sounded quieter in the hall.
She put on her locket and went to her parent's room. Rosebud
and Booster laid sound asleep under the blankets as they cuddled
next to each other. Luna walked to the bed and shook her mother.
Rosebud opened her eyes and saw Luna staring at her, "Lunarstar,
what's the matter?"
"I can't sleep," Luna replied as she looked at the
shadows on the curtains.
"Try and go to sleep. Your going to be so tired in the morning
if you don't," Rosebud whispered.
"But...the..."Luna looked at the windows again.
Rosebud smiled. "There's nothing outside."
"But...the shadows and that noise."
"Lunarstar, that's just the wind. It sounds like it's going
to storm soon. The shadows is from the tree," Rosebud explained.
"Try and get some sleep. There's really nothing to be afraid
"Ok," Luna weakly smiled.
She turned and left the room but she didn't feel like sleeping,
not just yet. She quietly walked down stairs to the living room
then she went to the kitchen. The wind still howled and she could
see strange shadows.
"There's no dragons there," Luna kept telling herself
as she stared at the shadows. She took out a glass and filled
it with water. She quickly drank the water. For awhile she didn't
She put the glass on the counter and started to walk out of the
kitchen when suddenly the screen door outside to the kitchen
flew open and banged loudly. Luna jumped and ran past the living
room and up the stairs. She hurried into her parents room and
climbed in bed next to her mother. Rosebud and Booster woke up
wondering what shook the bed. They turned and looked at the end
of the bed and saw Luna curled in a ball covering her face with
"Lunarstar?" Rosebud whispered.
Luna began to cry she felt so scared.
"I guess it wont hurt for her to stay with us for the night.
That wind would scare any little pony," Booster remarked.
Rosebud got close to Booster and whispered in his ear, "I
don't think it's the wind. I think the dream she had is scaring
Booster looked at Luna and noticed her peeking at the window.
Rosebud took the covers from under her and covered her, "Goodnight
"Goodnight," Booster replied as he and Rosebud went
back to sleep. Luna closed her eyes but all she could hear was
the wind howling like mad dragons. It had been a long time since
a storm had scared her. Why was she scared? It was only a dream
that she had and yet, she felt it was more than just a dream.
She didn't know how long she laid in bed before she finally fell
The next morning Rosebud and Booster was in the dinning room
eating breakfast with Buster and Charades.
"Where's Lunarstar?" Charades asked as he looked around.
"Won't she be late for school?" Buster asked.
"She's not going to school today. She just got to sleep
an hour ago," Rosebud replied.
"What?" Charades and Buster exclaimed almost choking
on their food.
"She had a bad dream and the storm didn't help much either.
She stayed awake through most of the night till morning,"
"It's been a very long time since she's been this scared
on a stormy night," Rosebud added.
"What was she dreaming about?" Charades asked.
"Dragons fighting," Booster replied.
"That is all she told us," Rosebud added.
"Dragons?" Charades asked. "There was two large
dragons at Dream Castle during the battle. Luna was one of them,
a large white dragon but she has no memory of turning into one,"
"Can the dream be connected to her changing into a dragon?"
The four of them sat at the table and wondered. Was Luna dreaming
about the battle she had at Dream Castle, or was it something
