It was in the afternoon and Amaryllis and Star Cluster sat
on the couch in the living room reading a book to each other.
The sun light from the window light the room. Bird chirped happily
on the trees outside the window. Peaches ran into the living
room from the kitchen.
"Mommy!" Peaches shouted excitedly, "Butterflies!"
Then she turned and ran back into the kitchen.
"She really gets excited about butterflies," Star Cluster
"She's talking about millions of butterflies. They come
to out meadow this time of year. Peaches and I love to chase
them and see them fly. It's so pretty. Come on, you got to see
this," Amaryllis exclaimed happily. She sat her book down
and left the living room. Star Cluster followed her into the
kitchen to the door. Star cluster gasped at the large groups
of butterflies gathering in the meadow. When they have all settled
in the tall grass, Amaryllis quietly opened the door, "Come
on Star Cluster, this is fun."
She opened the door and Peaches ran across the grass with her
mother behind her. Star Cluster stood and watched. He loved to
see her laugh and smile like a little pony. As Star Cluster watched
he began to imagine Amaryllis as Luna running along the beach,
smiling and laughing. Star Cluster blinked a few times and lost
the image. He had seen the white winged unicorn before when the
snow was melting but who was she?
"Star Cluster!" Amaryllis cried laughing.
Star Cluster smiled and ran to join Amaryllis in the butterfly
chase. Millions of butterflies flew from the grass and gathered
in the air as the three ponies chased them.
After awhile the butterflies began to leave, flying higher.
"Aww, they're leaving," Amaryllis complained.
"I'll try and catch some," Star Cluster lowered himself
to the ground and got ready for a mighty jump. Suddenly he jumped
high, right into a group of butterflies. Then he came down to
the ground and landed on his four feet.
Amaryllis looked at him and laughed.
"What?" Star Cluster asked suspiously.
"The butterflies..."Amaryllis laughed, "They're
caught in your hair."
Star Cluster looked and saw several butterflies stuck in his
"I'll get them off for you," Amaryllis told him. She
approached him and carefully began to set one butterfly free,
then another and another. Soon she had set all the butterflies
free from his hair. She stood back and laughed, "You looked
so cute with them in your hair."
Star Cluster smiled, "at least I caught some."
"You certainly did," Amaryllis replied.
She walked up to him and nuzzled his neck.
Peaches laughed and ran still chasing a few butterflies that
was left behind.
"We're like on happy family," Amaryllis whispered.
Star Cluster thought about what she said. He deeply wanted a
family, and was very happy with Amaryllis but he had to know
his past first. As he watched Peaches he thought about the winged
unicorn he had seen. She was so white and yet young looking.
Who was she? Was she some how related to him?
Star Cluster sat down and leaned his head on her's. She leaned
her body next to his warm purple coat. Star Cluster smiled, he
was indeed a very happy pony. He felt as if he had never been
so happy like he was living in a dream, a dream that he hoped
would never end.
