It was morning and the sun hadn't rose from the mountains.
There were no birds chirping, not a single sound could be heard
outside, only the soft whistling in the wind rattled the windows.
Luna was soon woken up by Stardust which seemed a bit to early.
"Get up," Stardust whispered.
Luna turned over ignoring his constant calls.
"Look outside," Stardust told her.
Luna yawned, she was much to tired to climb out of bed.
Stardust took her warm covers off her bed sending a cold chilled
through her white coat.
"Dad," Luna muttered looking up at him. To her surprise
he didn't even have his crown on.
"I thought you'd like to see it snowing," Stardust
Luna sat up in bed, "Snow?"
Stardust smiled and watched as Luna jumped out of bed and hurried
to the doors on her balcony. She moved the curtains to the side
and gasped. Her balcony was covered in snow and it was still
snowing. There was so much snow falling that she could barley
see the town in the distance.
During the month they had arrived home, it started to get colder
and not just at night, even the wind was icy cold. Her father
had expected it to snow any day.
"Well?" Stardust asked.
Luna turned and looked at him smiling, "It's snowing."
Stardust chuckled, "It snowed over night. I just thought
you want to get up early and see it. Oh, don't open the doors,
it's quite windy from this high up in the castle. Now to wake
the others up and then get Royal Heart up." Stardust left
the room leaving Luna alone to stare at the falling snow.
After watching the snow for several minutes, she hurried to
her dresser and brushed her long white hair. Then she put her
mane up and her crown on her head. Then she put her silver color
around her neck and left the room. She was quickly joined by
"Did you see what's outside?" Luna asked him excitedly.
"Yes I did," Blizzard answered.
"I'd love to go out and play in the snow," Luna commented.
They walked down the stairs to the first floor and down another
hallway where two soldiers stood by a set of double doors. Luna
and Blizzard walked past the soldiers and into the dinning room.
Stardust and Royal Heart had just walked in and was getting ready
to sit down. Starfire, Skyview, Star Cluster and Amaryllis was
already seated and waiting.
"Morning Luna," Royal Heart said to her.
"Morning," Luna replied as she sat in her chair.
The servants walked in and set trays on the table, then they
left the room. The royal family began eating, Luna continued
to think about the snow.
"Since it's snowing outside, we should go out and play,"
"You always want to play," Skyview commented.
"Don't tell me you don't like playing in the snow. I know
you do," Starfire replied.
"Sounds like fun," Luna remarked.
"I'll just watch," Royal Heart muttered.
Stardust smiled, "All of you want to spend the day playing
in the snow?"
"Sure, Stardust," Star Cluster answered, "We could
use a brake."
Luna smiled greatly, she was excited about playing. It had been
awhile since she played.
After breakfast they went outside and stood at the top of
the steps watching the snow fall. The ground was covered in snow,
even the bare branches of the tree. Not a single steam of grass
could be seen. The castle walls was hazy in the thickness of
the falling snow. It was quiet, not a sound could be heard, not
even the wind. Luna noticed the wind blew slightly and not as
hard as it was outside her room. Starfire smiled at Skyview
who was busy looking at the snow falling. Starfire scooped up
a large hoof full of snow and threw it at Skyview's face then
he ran down the steps. Royal Heart, Stardust, Star Cluster, Amaryllis
and Luna laughed as Skyview wiped the snow from his face. He
stood and glared at him.
"Are you going to stand there and frown at me all day?"
Starfire asked smiling.
Skyview ran town the steps and chased Starfire.
"Snowball fight," Amaryllis muttered, "looks like
fun." then she picked up some snow and threw it in Star
Cluster's face and then she ran down the steps.
Star Cluster shook his head from the snow and ran after her.
Stardust stood and laughed watching Skyview trying to hit Starfire.
Skyview was getting frustrated in missing him. He picked up a
hoof full of snow and winked next to Starfire hitting him straight
in the face with the snowball.
Starfire gasped, "That's not fair."
Skyview laughed, "You never said anything about it being
fair." Then he turned and ran with Starfire chasing him.
Skyview winked from place to place as Starfire continue to miss
him with snowballs.
Luna looked at Stardust, "dad what do I do with my crown?
I can't play with it on."
"Have one of those soldiers hold it for you," Stardust
Luna walked up to a tan soldier by the door and took off her
crown, "Hold this for me."
"Yes, Princess Luna," The soldier replied and stood
up on his hind legs to hold the crown with both of his front
Luna walked approached Blizzard and smiled, "Lets play."
"Play what?" Blizzard asked.
"Snowballs of course," Luna answered.
"Snowballs?" Blizzard asked.
"Blizzard," Royal Heart called to him, "Haven't
you ever played snowball fight?"
"No," Blizzard answered, "I've ice-skated though."
"Snowball fights are fun, you just hit each other with snowballs,"
"And you think that's fun?" Blizzard asked curiously.
Luna giggled, "Yes." Then she picked up a snowball
and hit him in the face. She raced down the steps and turned
only to find Blizzard wiping the snow off his face and looking
at her with a blank look. Luna picked up another snowball and
threw it at him but Blizzard moved and the snowball hit the door
behind him. Luna picked up another snowball and threw it at him
but missed again. She threw several snowballs but never got close
to hitting him.
Luna got annoyed, "Ok, try and duck this one!" her
horn glowed and ten snowballs formed from the steps and flew
right at Blizzard's face.
Royal Heart and Stardust laughed.
Blizzard shook the snow off his face, then he picked up a snowball
and threw it at her but she just winked out.
Stardust laughed, "You'll have to try harder if you want
to get her."
Blizzard ran down the steps and chased Luna as he tried his best
to hit her with a snowball.
Royal Heart laughed, "I think he found out how much fun
Stardust laughed, "Well, I'm sure he'll hit her eventually
but at the moment Starfire doesn't seem to have any luck hitting
Just then Skyview winged to the stairs and waited, Starfire quickly
threw the snowball but Skyview winked out instead. The snowball
missed and hit Stardust in the face.
Skyview stood by the tree and laughed.
"I'm sorry, Stardust," Starfire quickly said and then
he ran after Skyview. Royal Heart stood laughing and couldn't
stop, "He didn't miss you though."
"That is obvious," Stardust replied and began wiping
the snow from his face and crown, "I think it's time I help
him." Stardust turned and walked to the other soldiers,
"Hold this and be careful with it," Stardust handed
him his crown.
The soldier nodded, "Yes your majesty."
Stardust turned and hurried down the steps, then ran after Skyview.
Royal Heart stood on the steps watching and laughing. She
found it more enjoyable watching than playing but a small part
of her wished that she could play.
