The sun shined brightly through the drifting clouds. The wind
blew a cool breeze on Drakon Island. Star Cluster and Amaryllis
ran along the sandy beach, splashing water and laughing. Star
Cluster was ahead and glanced behind him to find Amaryllis trying
to catch up to him.
Ponies from the village was on the beach watching and smiling.
Everyone had gotten to know Star Cluster during the month he,
Amaryllis and Peaches stayed with them.
Star Cluster and Amaryllis was getting tired. They slowed down
to a walked and went to a shady spot. Star Cluster laid down
in the sand with Amaryllis across from him, laying down. They
breathed heavily trying to catch their breath. Amaryllis smiled
greatly, "I'm having such a wonderful time. I wish it never
Star Cluster smiled at her, "Me too but the month is almost
over the gate will open soon. We'll have to leave tomorrow if
we're going to get there in time."
"Tomorrow?" Amaryllis asked, "that soon?"
"We'll have to," Star Cluster replied.
Just then Peaches and Pineapple ran up to them smiling. Peaches
laid between her mother and her new father.
"Tired?" Star Cluster asked.
Peaches nodded her head catching her breath.
"Pineapple, what's in the bucket?" Amaryllis asked.
"Shells," Pineapple answered. She put the bucket on
the sand and took out a small pearly shell, "We're collecting
them and then I'm going to have it made into a necklace for Peaches."
"Aww, that's so sweet of you," Amaryllis replied.
"Well, you'll have to do it today. We're leaving tomorrow,"
Star cluster told her.
"Ok, Peaches, lets go find a few more shells," Pineapple
Peaches stood up and ran after her down the beach. Amaryllis
inched closer to Star Cluster and rubbed foreheads with his.
Star Cluster sat up, "Come on, we still have today to play
so lets not waste it."
Amaryllis smiled and stood up. Without any warning, she tapped
him, "now your it!" Then she ran down the beach with
Star Cluster behind her.
A day later, after they had traveled through the forest, they
finally arrived in town. Mango was with them to guide them through
"Now, you go to the next town and you can catch a ship to
Ponyland. Do you have the tickets Chief Tahoe gave you?"
"Yes, we have them," Star Cluster answered.
"Thank you so much," Amaryllis exclaimed happily.
"We'll never forget you Star Cluster. I have a feeling this
is the last time you'll be on the island," Mango remarked.
"Yes, I plan to go home and stay there. I'm tired of traveling,"
Star Cluster replied.
"Bye," Amaryllis said. Then she turned and walked closely
with Star Custer. Peaches walked next to Star Cluster. They walked
out of town and across the deserted road while viewing the sparkling
ocean waves. It was in the afternoon when they finally reached
the next town. They continued walking through the crowed and
following the signs to the docks.
"Almost there," Star Cluster told her.
They walked til they came to a three way road. They followed
the sign pointing right and immeaditly saw several large ships
with signs in front of them saying where the ship was going.
Star Cluster, Amaryllis and Peaches hurried to the ship going
to Ponyland and stood in line waiting behind several ponies carrying
bags and wearing hats. When they approached a bright yellow pony
with bright pink and green hair, they quickly handed her their
tickets then they went onto the plank. Peaches walked closely
to her mother fearing that she would fall off.
They walked on to the deck and hurried into the ship. They searched
each floor till they found their rooms. They had a room next
to each other which made them happy. They left and hurried to
the top of the ship where the pool was and stood watching as
the ship left the dock.
"I'm so nervous, Star Cluster. I'm leaving my home for good,"
Amaryllis whisped to him worriedly.
Star Cluster smiled and hugged her tightly, "Your with me
and I promise to take good care of you and peaches."
Amaryllis hugged him back.
