The sky was dark, the moon was almost full. Luna sat on her
bed in her winged unicorn form trying to do her school work but
all she could think about was seeing her real parents again.
It had been a month and she was anxious to hear everything that
happened in Ponyland. She was also excited to tell them what
she had been doing.
She put her school work in her bag after realizing she'll never
be able to concentrate enough to finish it. She got off her bed
and left her room, then she hurried downstairs. Her parents were
watching TV when she walked in.
"Mom, Dad, can I go out?"
Her parents turned from the TV and looked at her.
"Ok but do not let anyone see you," Booster answered.
"Be careful. We don't want anything to happened to you,"
Rosebud told her.
"Mom, I'll be fine. No one is after me now. I can explore
the forest freely now," Luna told her.
"You never know Lunarstar but if something strange happens
or you see anything out of the ordinary, you come home as quickly
as possible," Rosebud told her.
"I will mom. Bye, see you later," Lunarstar exclaimed
and suddenly she winked out.
Luna appeared in the forest with her horn glowing so she could
see where she's going. She smiled greatly feeling free. She ran
past trees and through bushes. She ran till she was out of breath
and then she slowed down to a walk. Soon she found herself in
a meadow with grass so tall it reached her knees. Luna laid down
and looked up at the stars. The sky was covered with bright twinkling
stars, some looked bigger than others. She stared, gazing at
the star in the dark sky, it felt like an hour had gone by since
she had laid down. She love to see the beauty of the sky at night.
She sat up and looked around, the forest was peaceful and quiet
except for the sounds of crickets. She knew she was alone free
to run and not worry about someone seeing her. It was beginning
to feel like old times again.
After she had rested, Luna ran through the tall grass and jumping
at time as she laughed. Suddenly she felt a cold wind. She stopped
and wondered if she should head home. Just then the wind got
stronger, snowflakes appeared and surrounded her. The wind howled
in her ear as It swirled around her turning her white coat to
tinny icicles. Her horn began to turn to ice. Luna felt scared,
she had never felt the cold winter wind in the summer time. She
knew something was wrong.
Luna remembered what her mother said.
"I got to go home," Luna thought. She suddenly winked
out and appeared in the living room scaring her mother.
Rosebud was about to yell at Luna when she noticed Luna's
coat and hair was covered in icicles.
"Oh Lunarstar. What happened?" Rosebud asked.
Booster walked up to Luna and touched her coat, "You feel
"I-I'm..c-c-cold," Luna studdered as she shook.
Rosebud ran up to stairs and grabbed a blanket, then she hurried
downstair and wrapped Luna in it. She and Booster began to rubbed
"I'll make you some hot chocolate," Rosebud said and
she hurried to the kitchen.
Luna was too cold to sit but her father talked her into it. After
awhile, Luna sat on the couch shaking and feeling sore from all
the shaking she was doing.
Rosebud gave her a mug with steaming hot chocolate. Luna took
it and sipped on it, when she had finished she was still shaking.
Her insides felt warm but her coat was still very cold.
"That should have warmed her up," Rosebud exclaimed.
Booster touched her forehead, "She still feels cold. Lunarstar
"I-I was out playing when a strong...winter wind blew around
me. It...was turning me to ice. It...was so c-cold. so I winked
home," Luna explained.
"How is that possible. This is summer, even the breeze is
warm," Rosebud exclaimed.
"Lunarstar why don't you take a hot bath?" Booster
"O-ok," Luna replied.
She stood up leaving the blanket on the couch and went upstairs.
She walked into the bathroom and quickly ran the warm water into
the tub. Once it was full Luna climbed into the tub. Her legs
were warming up. She smiled knowing a hot bath was just was she
needed. She turned and sat down leaning back to relaxing in the
tub. She could feel her coat and skin begin to warm up. She closed
her eyes as she relaxed.
"Lunarstar," Rosebud called from the door, "Feeling
Luna opened her eyes and smiled greatly, "Yes, I am. I'm
not cold anymore."
"That's good. You should stay home tomorrow just incase
you develop a cold."
"Mom!" Luna began to complain in a disappointment ton
"Just till tomorrow night," Rosebud told her.
"Ok," Luna replied still feeling disappointed.
"You can always have you friends over," Rosebud added.
Luna smiled, "Yeah and we could party or something."
"Maybe," Rosebud laughed, "hurry up so you can
get to bed."
"Ok!" Luna replied.
She leaned back in the tub relaxing till the water began to turn
cold. She stood up and squeezed the water out of her hair, then
she stepped out of the tub. She grabbed a towel from the rack
and began to dry herself off.
When she was done she left the bathroom and went to the living
"Goodnight!" her parents replied.
Luna turned around and went to her room. She laid in bed under
the covers thinking about the strange winter wind. She couldn't
help feel that was no ordinary winter wind, she felt like it
was after her.
Luna giggle to herself, "That sound ridiculous."
After awhile she closed her eyes and quickly feel into a deep
