The sun was setting and the Royal family headed to bed. Stardust
left walked with Royal Heart to his room. Luna went to her room
saying goodnight to Blizzard. She took her crown off, then her
collar and put her hair down. She walked to her bed and climbed
under the covers.
Everyone in the castle was in bed sleeping while the soldiers
outside pase the castle walls.
It was after midnight and the wind began to blow, the cold
air howled on the balcony. Luna laid in bed shivering. She opened
her eyes and felt the cold air blowing in her room. She sat up
and looked around for a blanket but there wasn't any. Luna guessed
that the maid took her blanket to clean it. Luna climbed out
of bed feeling her fur stand up from the cold chill. She left
her room and walked down the halls to her parents room. She cracked
the door opened and saw her parents huddled together for warmth.
Luna walked in and shook her father.
"Leave. Go to bed," Stardust muttered quietly.
"Dad," Luna whispered.
Stardust opened his eyes and saw Luna standing beside his bed.
"Luna, what is it?" Stardust asked.
"I'm cold," Luna replied.
"Stardust," Royal Heart barely muttered.
"It's Luna, she's cold," Stardust explained, "Luna
there's some blankets in the box over there," Stardust pointed
to the corner of his room.
"Stardust, it's getting colder at night now," Royal
"Perhaps I should start having the doors installed on the
balconies," Stardust replied.
Luna took a blanket and left, "Goodnight."
Stardust yawned, "Goodnight." then he went back to
The next day after breakfast Stardust had several ponies brought
to the throne room who stood before Stardust.
"Have you got the doors prepared?" Stardust asked.
"Almost ready. It takes time to make glass and gold framed
doors," the white pony replied.
"The nights are getting cold and those doors must be installed
before winter. Can you install the doors you already have done?"
"Yes we can," the pony answered, "But it'll be
awhile till we can get the rest of the door finished."
"I want doors on our balcony and my daughters then if you
get any doors done, put them on my brother's balconies then the
rest of the castle."
"Yes your majesty," the white pony replied.
"Blizzard can show you the rooms where the doors will be
installed," Stardust told them, he looked at Blizzard and
nodded his head. Blizzard stood up from the Queen's chair and
took the ponies out of the throne room.
Blizzard took them to the stairs and up to the forth floor.
"I forgot about the stairs. How can we carry the doors to
the forth floor?" a green pony asked.
"Slowly and carefully," the white pony answered.
Blizzard stopped and faced them, "I can get them up the
stairs for you."
"You?" the white pony asked, "Your smaller than
us and those doors are very heavy."
"I never said I'd carry them up the stairs. I'll help you
when you bring the doors if you like," Blizzard proposed.
"Sure if it'll make our job easier," the white pony
Blizzard turned and continued walking down the hall to Stardust's
room. The ponies entered the room and examine the doorway of
"It'll take all day to do one room," the white pony
"Come, I'll show you Luna's room," Blizzard said and
led them out of the room. They walked down several hallways to
Luna's room where the ponies examined her balcony.
"Are all the balconies the same size and width?" the
white pony asked.
"No but I think Skyview, Starfire and Star Cluster, mine
and Amaryllis's rooms are the same as this one," Blizzard
"Ok, we'll return here in a few days," the white pony
Blizzard led them out of the room and down the stairs to the
door, then he returned to the throne room. He was anxious to
have doors in his room. Last night was quite cold, it made him
wish he could stay in bed all day.
