Morning had came and Star Cluster had just finished breakfast.
He stood up from the table and took his plate to the kitchen
counter, "Well I'll be going then."
"You know how to get to town?" Amaryllis asked as she
picked up her plate and then Peaches.
"Yes I do. I just go straight and follow the path."
"Ok. Make sure your back in time for dinner," Amaryllis
He stood at the door and smiled at her, "I wouldn't miss
your cooking," Then he turned and left the house. Amaryllis
stood surprised at what he said. She smiled greatly to herself.
Star Cluster walked across the meadow to the forest and followed
the dirt path to town. He walked over hills, past bushes, rocks
and fallen trees till he saw the black pathed road ahead of him.
He left the forest and followed the road to town. Star Cluster
saw adult ponies walking around some stared at his hairy feet.
He looked around and noticed there were no little ponies.
"I wonder where they went?" Star Cluster thought.
He continued to walk looking at signs that would say, library.
Just then he saw little ponies playing by a medium size yellow
building. Non of the ponies strayed to far from the building.
He turned and continued walking till he saw the library not to
far from the little ponies. It was a one story building a little
bigger than the store he and Amaryllis went to in town. He walked
inside and saw a light blue pony with white, pink and yellow
hair writing something at the desk front of him. He walked up
to the pony, "Um, excuse me."
The pony looked up from her desk and smiled great when she saw
who it was, "Your Star Cluster."
Star Cluster was surprised a stranger would know his name, "How
did you know my name?"
"This is a small town, everyone knows everyone here. I'm
May, if there's anything you need just ask me."
"Yes there is. I need books on unicorns, pegasus and other
strange ponies," Star Cluster replied.
"Oh, the fairy tale ponies. We got a few. If you like, you
can sit at a table and I'll bring some to you," May replied.
"Oh, one more thing," Star Cluster turned and pointed
to a yellow building through the window, "What building
"That's the school," May replied.
"Oh," Star Cluster replied. He remembered what Amaryllis
told him about school, "So that's a school."
When May left him, he turned and walked around the desk. There
were long rectangled tables with bookcases on each side. There
were a few ponies in the library but he was the only one sitting
at the table. After a few minute, May returned with a small stack
of books. Some were thick, some were thin. Others were big. May
sat the books in front if him.
"Some of these are little pony books but this is all we
have," May told him.
"This will do, thanks," Star Cluster told her.
May smiled and went back to her desk while Star Cluster took
the first book and began to read it. It had lots of pictures
of unicorns and Pegasus but is wasn't what he had hopped for.
Star Cluster closed the book and pushed it aside, then he grabbed
the next thick book and opened it. There were very little pictures
but there was lots of reading. He quickly skimmed through the
pages till something caught his eye. He sat for hours reading
the book. As he read ponies came in the library and left non
of them stayed as ling as Star Cluster. When he realized what
time it was, he close the book and quickly skimmed through the
other books. He had learned a lot by reading them but he only
found more questions and very few answers. He gave up and decided
to go back to Amaryllis's house. He stood up and left the library.
As he walk he saw lot of ponies in town and little ponies in
the allies playing. He hurried out of town and into the forest.
He could feel his stomach began to rumble and twist. He knew
it was close to dinner time and he didn't want to miss it. As
he walked he thought about what he read in the books and the
pictures he saw. He wondered if there were real unicorns and
Pegasus around, if so then where did they go? Where are they
hiding? He didn't find anything about his hairy feet or fur growing
back or glowing on a full moon but one thing he noticed was that
all the unicorns and Pegasus were females.
He continued walking through the thick forest till he saw the
meadow. The house sat far on the other side.
Peaches was outside with her mother when Star Cluster appeared
from the forest. Peaches dropped her ball and ran towards him.
When she reached him she stood on her hind legs and gave him
a hung which surprised Star Cluster. He looked down at her and
smiled, "Missed me?"
"Don't leave," Peaches exclaimed sadly.
Amaryllis walked up to him smiling, "Peaches thought you
weren't coming back. She very attached to you."
"I noticed," Star Cluster replied looking down at her.
"Well I was about to have dinner. I'm guessing your starving,"
"Yes, I am."
"Did you learn anything at the library?" Amaryllis
asked as she, Star Cluster and Peaches walked back to the house.
"Some but I only have more questions," Star Cluster
"Why are you so interested in fairy tales?" Amaryllis
"I don't know. Something about it just draw me to it,"
Star Cluster replied.
They continued into the house and talked as they eat dinner.
