It was after midnight and everyone was sound asleep. The crickets
made their sounds in the high grass. An owl blinked his eyes
and made noises. Other night time animals roamed the forest.
The wind blew slightly through trees and tall grass.
The curtains in the living room was closed giving very little
light in the room as Star Cluster slept.
He groaned and kicked his feet as he dreamt.
He, Amaryllis and Peaches ran in the meadow laughing and playing.
Amaryllis slowed down and turned towards him, She leaned forward
and kissed him. Star Cluster nuzzled her neck, "Now we can
go home and live as a real family."
Peaches ran up to him smiling, "Daddy, race you home!"
Star Cluster and Amaryllis looked at each other.
"You know I'll win though," Star Cluster replied.
"You think you will," Amaryllis replied.
The three of them ran back to the house, laughing and smiling.
As Star Cluster ran he felt the earth shake and heard it rumble.
He slowed down and glanced back. To his surprised he saw two
great big dragons. One was red, the other was white. They were
fighting in his meadow. Amaryllis and Peaches didn't seem to
Just then three black ponies ran off the forest. He was shocked
to see them. They were black as the dark sky. One was a unicorn,
the other was a pegasus and the third looked normal. He knew
the three black ponies, they felt so familiar. Just then a group
of brightly colored ponies ran out of the forest and surrounded
the red dragon. They pointed spears and bows& arrows at the
"Star Cluster," Amaryllis shouted.
Star Cluster turned and saw her standing at the doorway.
"Come on!" Amaryllis shouted.
Star Cluster looked at the two fighting dragons and then at Amaryllis.
He wanted to go to her but he feared he would lose the three
black ponies and the dragons. If he went towards the black ponies,
he feared he would lose Amaryllis. Star Cluster stood not sure
which way to turn to.
Suddenly, the red dragon came close to him and cast a shadow
over him. Star Cluster looked up and stared in fear, not daring
Suddenly, Star Cluster gasped and jump up from the couch.
He quickly looked around and took a deep breath of relief seeing
that he was only dreaming. He took the blanket off and sat on
the couch rubbing his face. The dream was so clear to him. He
saw everything in great details.
He stood up and walked to the kitchen. He took a glass from the
cupboard and filled it with water from the faucet. He took a
sip and looked out the window. The meadow was dark except from
the half moon lighting up the forest. As he stared he began to
imagine the two dragons fighting and the Black ponies standing
there watching. They were ghostly images in the meadow fighting
under the moon.
Star Cluster rubbed his eyes and looked but there was nothing
there. He continued drinking his water till the glass was empty,
then he sat it in the sink. He looked out the window again and
realized not only was he thirsty, he was also hot. He felt his
fur on his front leg, feeling the heat coming from his damp skin.
"That dream was so...intense that I was sweating,"
Star Cluster whispered.
He walked to the door and opened it, then he quietly closed it.
He walked a little further from the house. He stood and looked
at the stars and feeling the genital breeze blowing through his
coat and hair. He thought of the three black ponies again, he
couldn't get them out of his mind. They were important to him.
It annoyed him that he couldn't remember who they are or even
their names. He thought of the two dragons and knew they too
looked familiar. He thought of the white winged unicorn and knew
she looked familiar. He thought of the castle he had seen last
year and knew that too looked familiar and his dream of strange
Star Cluster sat in the grass and rubbed his face.
"Who are they!" Star Cluster exclaimed, "I know
them and yet I don't. Just who are they?"
No mater how many times he asked himself that question he never
got an answer...at least for tonight. He promised himself he
would find out who they are. The answers are in his head, it
was only a mater of time till he found it.
Star Cluster stood up and turned from the forest. He walked
towards the house and walked inside, closing the door behind
