Chapter 16: Snow storm

It was after midnight and the wind howeld loudly blowing snow across the land. The living room was cold and dark except for the christmas tree behind him in the corner. The windows rattled waking up Star Cluster. He sat up and looked at the window. The curtains were closed but the window continued to rattle. He stood up and walked to the window. He parted the curtains and gaspbed at the sight. There was so much snow that is whited out everything, finding it impossible to see out. Just then he heard a door open then another door. Suddenly something grabbed his leg. Star Cluster looked down and saw peaches hugging his leg and hiding her face. Star Cluster picked her up, "What's the matter?"
Amaryllis walked up to him from the darkness, "It's the sound the wind makes." She stood next to Star Cluster and stroked Peaches.
Amaryllis shook her coat, "It's cold in here. Let me start the fire." She turned and took a few logs from the side of the fireplace and placed them in the fireplace. Then she set the logs on fire. Star Cluster sat on the couch and wrapped him and Peaches in his blanket. Amaryllis left the fireplace and took the another blanket from the other couch and sat next to Star Custer.
Peaches curled in a ball in his arms, clenching at his purple coat.
"Peaches, don't be scared, it's just the wind," Amaryllis told her.
"You sure mommy?" Peaches asked, "It's not the doggies?"
"No, it's not wolves," Amaryllis replied smiling at her, "Would you like me to read a story for you?"
Peaches knodded her head still looking scared. Amaryllis stood up and left the room. She walked to Peaches room and took a yellow book from the dresser and hurried back to Star Cluster. She sat down and began reading.
"This book is about a unicorn who thought she was the only one in the world," Amaryllis explained and began reading.
Star Cluster listened and began to feel as though the unicorn sounded famiar, like someone he once knew had thought the same thing.

As Amaryllis read the book, Peaches slowly fell sleep in Star Cluster's arms. Amaryllis stopped reading and sat the book down then she noticed Star Cluster staring as if he was in deep thought.
"Star Cluster?" Amaryllis whispered.
Star Cluster looked at her and smiled, "I was just thinking."
"Remember anything?" Amaryllis curiously asked.
"No, not really," Star Cluster replied. He looked down at Peaches and smiled, "She fell asleep."
"Reading to her always puts her to sleep," Amaryllis replied, "It's still cold in here. I wish it would hurry and warm up," She took her blanket and hugged it tightly.
"You'll be warmer with me," Star Cluster commented smiling at her. He took his blanket and wrapped it around Peaches, only her face could be seen. He stood up, walked over Amaryllis and laid Peaches on the couch next to Amaryllis. Then he sat down and took half the blanket.
"There, now we'll be warm," Star Cluster told her.
Amaryllis smiled and inched closer to him. She leaned next to his side and laid her head on his shoulder, "you are warm."
Star Cluster smiled and rubbed his head on hers. They sat staring at the fire for hours listening to the storm howling and the windows rattle.
"Is the storm always this bad this time of year?" Star CLuster asked.
"Yes it is. That's why I go to town and get supplies before it really begins to snow," Amaryllis replied.
Star Cluster continued to rub her head as he closed his eyes. Amaryllis closed her eyes enjoying the rubbing she's getting.
"I love you, Amaryllis. I'm so glad you found me and took me into your home," Star Cluster whispered to her. He opened his eyes and looked at her. Amaryllis looked up at him and the two kissed eash other for the longest time. Amaryllis let go and rested her head on his shoulders.
"Are you going to leave when you get your memmory back?" Amaryllis asked.
"Lets not think about it now," Star Cluster replied.
"You'll have to think about it sometime, StarCluster," Amaryllis replied.
Star Cluster knew she was right. If he had a family he would have to leave and search for them. He looked down at Amaryllis who had fallen fast asleep. Would it be possible to take her with him? Would she be willing to go?
As he stared at the fire and continued to have deep thoughts, he slowly fell asleep.

The next morning, Peaches took the blanket off of Star Cluster and her mother.
"Mommy!" Peaches cried excitedly, "Look," she pointed at the window. Amaryllis and Star Cluster woke up and turned to see the window. The sun was shinning brightly through the window. Star Cluster and Amaryllis stood up and walked to the window. They blinked a few times. The sun was so bright it was almost to blinding to see the snow.
"The storm is over," Amaryllis exclaimed happily.
"Spring will soon be here," Star Cluster replied staring out the window.
Amaryllis leaned her head on his shoulder and smiled.
