The Sky was pitch-black, only the full moon and the twinkling
of the stars could be seen through an occasional drifting cloud.
The forest was silent except for the sound of hooves thundering
the ground. A white glowing pony wearing a purple hooded cape;
ran through the forest. Her sky blue tail blew in the wind with
strains of her mane showing from under her hood. She carried
a basket in her mouth, a pink silk cloth laid tucked inside.
her breathing became heavy from her long run. She glanced behind
her worriedly. She knew someone was following her, she could
hear the sounds of thundering hoofs. She knew they were close
behind even though she didn't know who they were.
looked down at the basket she carried in her mouth. What would
she do with the basket? She couldn't go back and she didn't know
where she was or where to go. Fear and worriey slowly began to
creep up inside her. She stopped in the valley at the edge of
the forest; in the valley below were lots of houses but only
one house still had their lights on; everyone else was asleep.
She closed her eyes letting a single tear trickle down her cheek;
she knew what she had to do. She looked back to see if her followers
were in sight, the forest was to dark to see anything. She rushed
out of the forest and ran down the street, through several yards
and jumping over fences. When she reached the house she put the
basket on the door step and smiled but she felt to sad for smiled
for long. She lowered her head and lightly nuzzled the silk cloth.
A tear fell from her cheek to the blanket. Knowing she didn't
have time to waste, she stood on her hind legs and knocked on
the door. She looked at the basket one last time and then ran.
She quickly left the valley and ran into the forest.
she heard how quiet the forest was she got worried, the thundering
hoof beats were gone. At first she thought she had lost her followers
but when she saw them to the side of her staring at her she gasped
fearfully. There stood three black male ponies with black and
dark blue hair. One was a pegasus and the other was a unicorn.
The third appeared to be a normal earth pony. All three of them
had hairy feet.
She stopped suddenly knowing
they had found her. She knew there wasn't anyway of escaping
"Did you really think you could get
away?" The Pegasus asked.
hide from us no mater where you go," added the Earth pony.
The Unicorn Disappears in a misty cloud and reappeared
behind her, surprising her. She new she couldn't get away but
she had to try. She dash through the forest while revealing her
white wings from under her Cloak. The Unicorn's horn began to
glow and a cloud appeared above her as she began to fly from
a hill top. To her surprise the cloud took the shape of a net
and wrapped itself around her. She couldn't run or fly so she
tumbled down the hill, rolling to the bottom. The three black
ponies stood on the hill glaring at her.
At the house, a green male pony answered the door but he saw
no one except for a Basket at his feet.
at the door?" a female pony asked from inside the house.
"You might want to look at this," the
male Pony suggested.
A purple female pony walked
to the door and saw a Basket. The Male pony slowly took off the
pink silk cloth from the Basket as a white glow peeked out from
under the cloth. To their great surprise it was a pure white
baby pony with a tiny horn and wings.
baby winged unicorn but I thought they didn't exist," said
the Male Pony who still couldn't believe what he was seeing.
The two ponies looked at each other wondering what
to do with her. The Female wanted to keep the baby pony and smiled
at the Male pony. He saw her smile and knew what she was thinking,
"I don't know..."
"We could adopt
her," the female suggested.
not going to be easy hiding her horn and wings," the Male
Pony answered back.
"I'm sure you'll think
of something," replied the Female. She grabbed the Basket
in her mouth and walked inside with him.
12 years later. School was about to start and the little ponies
hurried to their seats before the bell rang. Miss Hakney stood
in front of the class with a new pony next to her. She took a
small step forward, "Attention class, this is Lunarstar.
She just moved here so make her feel welcome."
was a white pony with light purple hair, her tail dragged on
the ground and her mane barley touched the ground, she had a
crescent moon symbol with four stars around the moon. The boys
didn't take their eyes off of her, Lunarstar noticed them and
smiled which made the boys happy.
you can have a seat behind Bon Bon," Miss Hakney told her.
Bon Bon raised one hoof so Lunarstar could find her. She walked
to her seat and took out her books from her bag.
After school Patch, Starlight, Clover, Bon Bon, Melody, Sweetheart
and Bright Eyes, rushed to catch up to Lunarstar who was walking
through the Park.
Lunarstar stopped and turned around,
wondering who called her.
The girls introduced
themselves and asked if she would like to join them at the Ice
"We'd like to be your friend,"
added Bright Eyes.
"Well, ok but just let
me drop my books off at home," replied Lunarstar.
"We'll be at the Ice Cream Shop," Starlight
Lunarstar watched the girls leave,
"It looks like I made some new friends."
When Lunarstar got home, she told her Parents about her friends.
Her father Booster, was a green with blue hair
and a symbol of building blocks. Her Mother Rosebud, was light
purple with red hair and a symbol of a basket of flowers.
"Your first day of School and you've already
got some new friends," exclaimed Booster, happily.
"So, can I go with them to the Ice cream shop?"
Lunarstar asked excitedly.
"I don't see
way not," Booster answered.
happy and couldn't wait to join her new friends.

Lunarstar ran out
of the house and through the yard towards the sidewalk. Her Parents
watched from a window as she ran down the sidewalk.
At the Ice Cream Shop, Starlight, Melody, Bon Bon, Clover,
Sweetheart sat at a booth waiting for Patch and Lunarstar.
"Where's Patch?" Melody asked as she
Just then Patch walked in and
set a newspaper down on the table to show them a picture, "Have

Just then Ace and Teddy
walked in the shop and over hear the girls talking about a Circus.
"Hay, Girls," cried Teddy.

"There's a Circus in town," Bon Bon answered.
"I haven't heard anything about,"said
"That's because they just came into
town," replied Bright Eyes.
an Uncle who works as a clown at the Circus," Patch exclaimed
"Cool," Melody exclaimed.
"Wow Patch, a Circus Clown in the family,"
It wasn't long til Lunarstar
came into the shop. It was easy to find the girls since they
were the only ones who had a large group.
she walked up to the table Teddy and Ace moved to the side, out
of her way. It was obvious that the boys liked her.

"And Patch has an
Uncle there," Clover added.
It must be great to have an uncle for a clown. Are you all going?"
"I am," Patch replied.
"So am I," added Melody.
don't we all go together?" suggested Bright Eyes.
"What about you Lunarstar?" Patch asked.
"I'll go. Perhaps my Parents will want to

"It could be fun,"
"Why don't we go and see them

"I've never seen them put up a Circus
Tent before," Sweetheart remarked.

and Ace decided to stay at the shop, they thought it would be
boring to watch the Circus Tent go up.
rushed out of the Ice Cream Shop and ran down the street towards
the edge of town.
The Circus sat in an open field at the edge of town. To the
girls disappointment they discover the tent was already up.
"The tent is already up," Melody announced.
"I guess they put it up early this morning,"
Bright Eyes guessed sadly.

of big red clown's feet.
the orange pony smiled.

"I just saw your Parents," the Uncle

"Patch tells us you're a Clown,"
The uncle smiled, "Yes,
I am. There are a lot of Clowns besides me."
there any animals?" Clover asked curiously.
there are. Let me show all of you around," the uncle proposed.
The girls were excited and couldn't wait to look
around. They followed the Uncle across the field, looking left
and right at the tents. The grass in the field was tall except
for the circus area which had been flattened by the large animals,
wagons and trucks. The concession stands sat next to the Big
Tent, the animals sat in their cages behind the Big Tent next
to the large trucks. Other smaller tents which had costumes and
make-ups sat on one side of the Big Tent. Patch and her friends
saw the animals and meet the workers who were very nice, they
even meet the Ringmaster who gave them all a free ticket. The
girls were thrilled and couldn't wait to get home to show their
Lunarstar looked at the sky and noticed
it was getting dark, "I should go, it's getting late."
"I think we all better go," Bright Eyes
Patch's Uncle agreed and escorted them
back to the sidewalk.
"Thanks for the tour,"
"Thank you," added
"It was great to look around,"
"See you tomorrow,"
Patch yelled as she ran to catch up to her friends.

"I loved looking at the animals," Sweetheart
"The Animals were great but

"My house isn't to far from here, so I'll
see you guys tomorrow," Clover told them, the she left.
"I see you tomorrow too," added Sweetheart.
When night fell and the stars shined brightly, the girls meet
at the Circus in front of the Big Tent. Lights lit the tents
and the surrounding area. Lunarstar arrived with her Parents
and introduced them.
"It's nice to meet
you," Starlight smiled.
"It nice to
see Lunarstar has made some friends," replied Rosebud.
"Lunarstar, are you going with them or do
you want to sit with us?" Booster asked.
looked at her Parents and then at her friends, wondering who
to sit with? After a minute she finally decided, "I'll sit
with my Friends."
"Ok, see you after
the show," replied Rosebud.
The girls watched
as her Parents walked into the tent with a gathering of ponies,
some had popcorn others had peanuts.

"I do," answered Bon Bon.

then she headed into the tent with her friends.
they were inside, they realize it's wasn't going to be easy to
find a seat.
"Every Pony in Ponyland must
be here," exclaimed Patch.
seen so many ponies," Sweetheart said in amazement.
"There are certainly a lot of ponies but where
are we going to sit?" Melody asked while looking around
"Up there," Lunarstar pointed
to Teddy, Ace and her Parents above them, who had saved some
seats for them. The girls each took a rail and walked up the
stairs, then they sat next to the boys and her Parents.
"Look who we found, two more of your friends,"
Rosebud muttered to Lunarstar.
said Lunarstar looking at the boys .

By the time Lunarstar got the box it was almost
empty, "Maybe we should have gotten two boxes of popcorn?
This one is about empty."
Starlight asked surprisingly.
a lot of us sharing the box," Bright Eyes pointed out, looking
in the box.
"Who's going to get another
box?" Clover asked.
"I will since
I'm sitting at the end," answered Lunarstar.
Just outside the tent, a Baby Pony and her Parents were looking
at the tent attraction near the Concession Stand. The Baby Pony
kept looking around and wasn't watching her Parents.

was a yellow pony with orange hair and a symbol of a skeleton
key on a chain. She walked a long side with her Parents until
she heard the animals and followed the sound. She walked around
the back of the Tent and stopped. She smiled greatly after seeing
the animals but a bit sad to see them in cages. The first cage
she went to had a wolf. She approached the cage, "poor doggie."
The wolf paced the cage until she reached up and unlatched the

The Uncle turned slowly around fearing what kind
of dog might be standing behind him. To his surprise it was a

She suddenly got scared and ran, the Uncle went after her with
the wolf chasing close behind them.
know where to run, she just kept running. Her little leg were
just to small to out run the Wolf. The Uncle was right on top
of her so he grabbed her in his mouth and ran between the Trucks.
He realized there was a large truck ahead but it was to late
to go around it. He stopped next to the truck and put Keeper
under him while not taking his eye off the Wolf. The Wolf growled
with every step he took. Keeper was to scared to say anything
or move and the Uncle was too afraid to make any loud noises
fearing it would anger the wolf even more.
without any warning, a white winged unicorn ran to the wolf with
her head down and hit the Wolf towards a pile of hay, then she
quickly touched the wolf with her horn, making the wolf disappeared
in swirl of falling stars. She then turned around to see if the
Uncle and Keeper was all right, once she saw they were fine she
quickly disappeared in a swirl of falling stars from her glowing

Father looked at Keeper noticing that she had tears falling down
her cheeks, "What's wrong?"
pointed towards the cage, "Doggy."
Parents looked and saw the Wolf in it's cage who was still growling.
"She let the wolf out-"the Uncle began
to say but he never got a chance to tell the rest of the story.
"You saved her?" the Mother asked.
"Thank you so much," the Father sad smiling
and left with his wife and daughter. The uncle stood wondering
if what he saw was real. Was the Winged Unicorn real?
one of the workers came up to him, "I wouldn't tell anyone
if I were you."
"You saw it?"
The Uncle asked who was sure no one was around at the time.
"I think I did but I'm not sure. I saw the
wolf appear in the cage and found you, but for a second I thought
I saw something else. I don't think anyone will believe you if
you told them what you saw but just out of curiosity, what did

minutes, "You won't believe me."

The uncle paused, "a Winged Unicorn."
Winged Unicorn?" the pony asked surprisingly.
she had wings, a horn on the head and was white all over,"
the uncle explained but it was obvious that the pony didn't believe
"I was right about not telling anyone,
I mean, who would believe me. A wolf appeared in it's cage,"
and then he walked off not sure if he believes the Uncle's story.
"I know what I saw?" the Uncle yelled.
Lunarstar had gotten the Popcorn and joined her friends in
"You missed some of the animal
acts," Melody told her.
the popcorn," Lunarstar handed the popcorn down to her friends.
The next day the girls went to see Patch's Uncle who was cleaning
out the animal cages.
"Your in the newspaper!"
shouted Patch excitedly.
"So it's true,
you really saved her from the wolf?" Starlight asked curiously.
"Not really," the Uncle replied.
"You didn't?" Clover asked who was just
as confused as everyone else.
"If I you
tell you, promise you won't tell anyone?" the uncle asked.
"Sure," replied Patch.
the uncle paused, he hoped they too would laugh at him,
it wasn't me who saved her. It was a Winged Unicorn
who saved her from the wolf and then she disappeared."
"Are you serious?" Bright Eyes asked.
"Yes, I'm very Serious," the uncle replied.
"A Winged Unicorn?" Lunarstar asked.
"Yes, she had wings, a horn on her head and
was white all over," the uncle explained.

Uncle shook his head, "yes."

forgot why she came, "We came to thank you for the good
time we had last night."

everyone I hope to see you all next year," replied the Uncle
and waved as they left.
