The sky was dark and the crescent moon shined brightly through
the passing clouds. Stars twinkled like diamonds. The wind blew
slightly, rustling the leaves on the trees.
Luna in her winged unicorn form sitting in her room working on
her school work. She listened to the wind when she finally finished.
She closed her book and placed it in her school bag. Then she
put her school bag next to her bed on the floor and left her
room. She hurried downstairs and found her parents watching TV
but Buster and Charades wasn't there. She could only guessed
they had left but where was Starfire?
Rosebud turned around on the couch and smiled at Luna, "Finished
"I didn't have much to do," Luna replied, then she
looked around, "umm, where's Starfire?"
"He on the back porch," Rosebud answered.
Luna left the living room and walked through the kitchen to the
back door. She walked outside and saw Starfire sitting on the
parch to the far right staring at the stars.
"Starfire!" Luna exclaimed.
"Hi, Luna. Finished?" Starfire asked.
"Yes I did," Luna walked up to him and sat next to
him, "What are you doing out here?"
"Just enjoying the view," Starfire replied.
Luna leaned her head on Starfire's shoulder, feeling his soft
black fur. Starfire turned his head and stared at her.
"What?" Luna asked looking up at him.
"I just noticed, you've grown a little bit since I first
saw you," Starfire replied.
"I have?" Luna asked, "Won't I stop growing at
"No," Starfire laughed, "You'll slow down growing.
By the time you're an adult, You'll age very slowly."
"Oh I forgot. So how old are you?"
Starfire laughed, "I'm still young, Luna."
Luna smiled but then it faded away, "But what about the
one I marry?"
"Unfortunately, you'll out live him," Starfire replied.
"Oh," Luna sighed sadly.
The two sat on the porch silently listening to the owls and the
Luna suddenly looked up at Starfire, "Want to play?"
"Play?" Starfire asked.
"Yeah, it's a perfect time to play. We could play rope toss
in the forest," Luna suggested.
"Ok then," Starfire stood up smiling.
"Let me ask my parents first," Luna turned and went
into the house with Starfire behind her.
They walked into the living room where her parents was still
"Mom, dad, can I go out with Starfire?" Luna asked.
"I don't see why not," Rosebud answered.
"As long as you stay with him," Booster added.
"I will," Luna replied smiling, "um, do you have
"Rope? Why do you want that for?" Rosebud asked.
"We're going to play Rope Toss," Luna replied.
"It's a game she loves to play and it requires a short rope,"
Booster stood up, "Let me go look." He left the living
room and walked to the garage through the dinning room. A few
minutes later he returned with a long rope.
"I'll get a knife," Luna exclaimed and hurried to the
kitchen, a minute later she returned and handed it to her father.
He cut a short rope and handed it to Starfire.
"This is perfect. Now lets go," Starfire said.
"I'll wink us to the forest," Luna proposed excitedly.
"You can do that?" Starfire asked surprisingly.
"Sure, I can," Luna replied. She lit her horn. As soon
as she touched him, they winked out.
Luna and Starfire appeared in the forest not to far for the
house. Starfire looked around and recognized the forest.
"Are we close to the gate?" Starfire asked.
"Is this the spot where you almost turned to an icicle?"
"Not here but close by."
Starfire didn't feel safe in that part of the forest. He knew
that's where the winter wind had came. He felt it would come
again if they played here.
"Lets go to another part of the forest," Starfire suggested.
"Why?" Luna asked.
"I don't feel safe here," Starfire answered. He held
the rope in his mouth and flew from the ground with Luna behind
They flew around the forest looking for a nice clearing.
Blizzard walked around the forest with his hooded cloak on
and his feet unwrapped, searching. He walking as quiet as he
could hoping to see the Princess again.
"I searched every night and I haven't seen her yet. Teriney
will be angry if I don't kill her," Blizzard whispered to
himself. He suddenly stopped and noticed something in sky in
the distance. Something was flying. One of them looked lighter
than the other. Blizzard decided to check it out knowing it had
to be a pegasus or a very large bird. Blizzard watched till they
disappeared in the forest far from town.
Blizzard turned into a cluster of snowflakes and flew towards
the sky. He flew over the town and into the forest where he thought
they had landed in. He returned to his pony form and quietly
walked through the forest without making a sound. He avoided
brushing past bushes and stepping on sticks. Since the forest
was so dark he had to walk slowly. He walked through the forest
and up a hill when suddenly he heard laughing. He paused and
quickly hid behind a tree. The laughing and snapping of twigs
Suddenly Luna ran out of the forest to the clearing with a rope
in her mouth, giggling to herself. Blizzard was curious as to
why she had a rope.
"Now is my chance," Blizzard thought. As he took a
step forward, Starfire suddenly jump over a bush and ran after
Luna. Blizzard ducked low to the grass and watched.
"I'll never get her with him around," Blizzard thought.
He laid on the grass and continued watching with interests.
Luna ran with Starfire quickly catching up to her. When she
glanced back he suddenly grabbed the rope in his mouth and tugged
on it but she wouldn't let go. Starfire and Luna stopped each
trying to tug on the rope. Luna tried hard to get the rope from
him but he just stood there smiling at her. When Starfire tugged
she felt she was about to loose the rope.
"Stubborn uh?" Starfire mumbled, he smiled and walked
around her hoping she'd loose her footing. When Luna tripped
over her own feet, she suddenly fell but refused to let go.
"I still have it," Luna mumbled.
"Oh, we'll see about that," Starfire replied.
He lifted his hoof and began to tickle her on the stomach. Luna
giggled trying to hold the rope but she couldn't hold back any
longer. Suddenly She burst out laughing. Starfire was having
to much fun to stop.
Blizzard watched curiously as she rolled around the grass. Suddenly
an image of him as a baby smiling, flashed before his eyes. Blizzard
blinked and rubbed his eyes.
"Was that...me?" Blizzard thought, "It must have
been my imagination."
Blizzard yawned quietly, "It's getting late. It's no use
staying here." He turned and left, "Sooner or later
she will be alone."
