They stood up and left the beach. They walked through town
to the docks where a medium size ship sat waiting, it was the
same boat as before. They walked up to the ship and went up to
the ticket collector.
"Your Tahoe's friend?" the male pony asked.
"Yes we are Chief Tahoe's friend," Stardust answered.
The pony looked at Luna.
"She's my daughter," Stardust answered as if he knew
what the pony was going to asked.
"Where's the third one?" the pony asked.
"He's around," Starfire answered, "Somewhere."
"Oh well, welcome and enjoy your stay. You'll be in the
same room as before."
Stardust, Starfire and Luna walked up the plank and went into
the boat to their room. There was a bed and a bed cot folded.
"You can come out," Stardust said as he shut the door.
A cloud came out from under Starfire's cloak and returned to
his pony form. Luna laid on the bed, she was to sad to do anything.
"Luna, I don't want you in this room the whole time sulking.
Walk around the decks or something," Stardust told her.
"I just want to lay here," Luna replied.
"Luna!" Stardust exclaimed.
Luna climbed out of bed.
"Go on, we will join you in a minute," Stardust told
Luna left the room and walked to the deck. She stood and watched
at the ship leaving the docks. She wondered around the dock passing
ponies her age. She looked over the railing and watched the water
hit the ship. It fascinated her and for a while she not longer
felt sad. She looked up at Drakon island feeling sad again. She
turned from the railing and walked to the next deck and looked
at the island. She stood and stared before Stardust and Starfire
"There you are," Starfire exclaimed.
"Are you enjoying the view?" Stardust asked.
Luna looked at him and gave a weak smile, "I guess so."
Stardust smiled then he and Starfire walked around her, standing
on each side of her. enjoying the breeze. They watched the island
got smaller and smaller.
"I wish Star Cluster was here," Luna muttered.
"So do we," Stardust replied.
Meanwhile, far from Drakon Island deep in the forest cleaning
sat a blue and white house. Flowers grew around the house. The
trees rustled their leaves in the wind. A light sea green baby
pony with white hair, ran as she kicked her pink ball.
"Be careful, Peaches. Stay close!" the light green
pony with yellow and white hair, shouted.
Peaches kicked her ball hard in the tall grass. The ball bounced
into the forest, Peaches looked at her mother who sat reading
a book. It was obvious her mother wasn't looking so Peaches hurried
into the forest looking for her ball. She had just stepped to
the forests edge and stopped next to a tree. She didn't find
her ball but what she saw shocked her. She turned and ran to
her mother calling for her. Her mother dropped the book and hurried
over to her.
"What's wrong?" the mother asked.
"Mommy!" Peaches cried, "A...pony...I think it's
a pony. It has no hair!"
Peaches ran to the forest edge where her ball was last seen.
She stopped at the large tree and pointed to the pony laying
amount the leaves and broken twigs. The pony's body had no hair
or fur. it's skin was dark purple and covered in scratches.
The mother gasped, she had never seen a pony so hairless in her
"That poor pony. what an awful thing to see," the mother
"Mommy look," Peaches exclaimed pointing to the body.
The mother looked closely and couldn't believe what she was seeing.
The purple pony began to rapidly grew fur and hair.
"Why, it's...a boy," the mother gasped, then she noticed
his feet was hairy. She had never seen ponies with hair feet
before. What kind of pony grows his fur back?
Peaches was just as shocked as her mother.
The pony slowly opened his eyes. He saw only blurry images
at first. He blinked several times before his vision was clear.
"Um," the mother began to say getting close to the
pony, "What's your name?"
The pony laid on the ground silently as if he didn't hear her.
"Mommy, maybe he can't hear?" Peaches suggested.
The mother began to wonder if her daughter was right.
The mother smiled, she was relieved he wasn't deaf.
"Where are you from?" she asked him.
He laid silently, thinking, "I..I...um...I-I don't know."
The mother stood surprised, "you must have Amnesia."
"Someone who temporary lost their memories. It'll take some
time before he can remember anything," The mother looked
at Star Cluster, "Are you sure that's your name?"
"I think so. It...feels familiar."
The mother smiled, "Looks like you can only remember you
name. Can you stand? I can clean your cuts and them you should
Star Cluster slowly got to his feet, feeling tired and worn out.
He slowly followed the pony out of the forest and across the
clearing to a house.
Star Cluster stopped suddenly and looked back.
"What's wrong?" the mother asked.
"I...just feel I left something important behind,"
Star Cluster replied. It was a deep sad feeling he had but he
didn't know what it was.
"Come, you must rest after I clean your cuts."
Star Cluster turned and continued into the house.
