Lunarstar scurried across the bridge to the tree. She ran
up the tree and onto a roof of one of the huts, the one with
two soldiers at the door. She scurried to the door and into the
hut walking on the ceiling. Inside were rows of spears and on
the wall hung knives. She ran to the knives and tried to pick
it up but it was too heavy for her. Suddenly a monkey walked
in and looked at the spears. Lunarstar had an idea, she hid behind
the row of spears and changed herself into a monkey. She stood
up and grabbed a knife on the wall then walked out unnoticed
by the guards. She walked across the bridges till she came to
the hut that Stardust was in.
"Where do you think your going?" one of the soldiers
asked pointing his spear at her.
"Around to the other hut of course?" Lunarstar answered.
"Oh, ok then," The soldiers retrieved his spear and
held it in one hand. Lunarstar walked by the door taking a glance
Stardust still hung from the ceiling with his head resting on
the net below him. Lunarstar walked around the hut to the side
out of sight from the soldiers. She looked around to see if anyone
was looking, they were to far to see her. She changed into a
squirrel then shoved the knife through the hut wall, then she
made a small hole to craw through. Once she was inside she turned
into a monkey and picked up the knife. Stardust opened his eyes
and looked at her not sure if it was Lunarstar or another monkey.
She walked over to the poll and climbed it, then she went to
the rope that held Stardust's feet. She held the rope in one
hand and cut it with the other hand. Then she crawled to the
other rope and cut it freeing his back feet. Stardust fell in
the net, he pointed to where he wanted her to cute, she crawled
over to the net and began cutting the net making a large hole.
Stardust slid out of the net backwards, he stood on his feet
and stretched. It felt good to stand, his legs had rope burns
from hanging so long.
Lunarstar climbed down the net and onto the floor, then she turned
back into a winged unicorn.
"We have to get out of here but those soldiers are in the
way," he whispered in her ear.
Lunarstar smiled, she knew how to get out. Stardust stared at
her wondering why she was smiling. Then he was her horn glow,
she reached over and touch him on the shoulder, suddenly they
The two soldier looked in the hut after they kept hearing whisperings.
To their surprised Lunarstar was gone and Stardust ropes and
net was cut. They ran out of the hut and across the bridge towards
Lunarstar winked Stardust and herself to the ground.
"I didn't know you could do that," Stardust exclaimed.
Lunarstar didn't know how to reply, she just smiled instead.
"We better not stand here to long. I'm sure they must had
noticed we're missing," Stardust exclaimed.
They ran through the forest, not caring which why to go as long
as they were out of Sky Wood Forest. Lunarstar ran as fast as
she could trying to catch up with Stardust.
The sun was setting and the forest got darker. It was getting
hard for them to see where they were going.
Lunarstar tripped over a tree root.
Stardust stopped and turned towards Lunarstar, she looked up
at him with tears in her eyes, "I'm so tired."
He knew she couldn't last much longer as tired as he looked and
the forest was getting darker by the minute.
"Ok, we'll sleep here but lets find a place to hide first,"
Stardust turned and walked searching for anything that could
hide him and Lunarstar. On the left was a large bush, it looked
big enough for them to sleep under it.
He walked over to the bush with Lunarstar behind him, he crawled
under the bush and laid far from the entrance. Lunarstar crawling
under the bush and laid not to far from Stardust.
Lunarstar yawned and laid her head down as she fell asleep. Stardust
laid on his side and fell fast asleep.
During the night Stardust was woken up by Lunarstar's sobbing.
She did her best to be quiet, she hid her face from Stardust
and buried her face between her legs.
Stardust looked at her but couldn't see her face.
"I wonder if she's been crying every night?" Stardust
thought. He knew she was still crying about missing her family
Stardust covered his head with his hoof trying to get some sleep
and letting her cry.
The next morning the sun had rose, giving light to the forest.
Stardust reached over to Lunarstar and shook her with his hoof.
Lunarstar opened her eyes and yawned.
"Lets hurry out of these forest," Stardust whispered.
He crawled out from under the bush with Lunarstar behind her.
He was in such a hurry to leave that he didn't even stretch nor
did he give Lunarstar time to stretch either.
"Come," Stardust whispered.
He and Lunarstar ran as fast as they could through the forest.
The sun light bounce around near the top of the tees leaving
the forest floor nothing but shadows.
As they ran a net fell from the trees catching Stardust and Lunarstar.
Stardust reared but also watching his back this time. Lunarstar
struggled in the net.
Suddenly another net fell on them just as Stardust tore a hole
in the first one. Then the Apetons dropped from the trees and
landed around the net.
Lunarstar looked at them, she didn't want to get could again.
King Furlong walked up behind him and around the front to face
"So you thought you could get away did you?" King Furlong
asked as he laughed, "You have managed to come to the center
of our Kingdom."
Stardust looked up, he could barley make out what on the top
of the trees.
King furlong smiled, "Get them!"
The monkeys ran at them, Stardust kicked and reared wildly. Lunarstar
did the same but it didn't seem to work for her. The monkeys
covered her and soon knocked her to the ground.
"Stardust!" Lunarstar cried.
Stardust was so busy throwing monkeys off of him that he hadn't
noticed the monkeys on Lunarstar. Stardust struggled over to
Lunarstar and managed to throw the monkeys off of her.
Suddenly the monkeys scattered as another net dropped on him.
Then more monkeys attacked Stardust.
"Don't hurt the white one. She will be my pet!" King
The monkeys attacked her but didn't hurt her.
"No," Lunarstar cried, "I will not be your pet!"
"You will be my pet and there's nothing you can do about
it!" Kind furlong replied as he laughed.
Lunarstar glared at him, she hated the Apetons, their trees and
their huts, she deeply wanted to blow them all away but her unicorn
powers were no strong enough for that.
"No!" Lunarstar yelled as she stood up. Stardust stopped
and looked at Lunarstar thinking she was scared but to his surprise
she wasn't scared, she was mad.
"No! I will not. I'm no one's pet!" Lunarstar yelled.
"I will keep you weather King Star Cluster wants you or
not," King Furlong exclaimed angrily.
Lunarstar stared hard at him, "NO!"
For a second Stardust saw her eyes turn green and then changed
back to normal.
"So Starfire was right, her eyes did turn green," Stardust
thought gasping at what happened next.
Suddenly Lunarstar horn began to glow and the Monkeys flew away
out of their sight. King Furlong was also gone but his crown
was embedded in the trunk of a tree. The net on them broke to pieces
and flew away. Lunarstar's hair blew slightly only Stardust felt
nothing not even the wind.
The huts in the trees blew off and the trees bent back, some
broke or became uprooted.
The leaves on the trees blew away and the trees became bare. By the time Lunarstar was
done it looked like a clearing. The Monkeys were gone, trees
and the huts that sat in them were gone even the King's Castle
was completely destroys.
Lunarstar cried loudly and ran off. Stardust stood for a few
minutes shocker at what happened. How can a Unicorn be so powerful?
He bolted into a run chasing after Lunarstar. She ran and ran
till her legs hurt. Eventually she found her way out of the forest
and into a meadow. Her legs gave out and she fell to the ground.
Stardust ran into the meadow and found her on the ground among
the tall grass crying.
"It's ok now," Stardust said, "They're gone."
Lunarstar looked up at him, "That king..."
"He certainly was mean," Stardust smiled at the thought
of seeing his crown in the tree, "you certainly took care
of him too. Their houses are gone and most of the trees in the
area are no longer standing. It'll be along time till they can
rebuild their kingdom," Stardust laughed, "I don't
think King Furlong will be picking on little ponies either."
Lunarstar couldn't help but laugh too.
"Cheer up, Lunarstar. let's get going," Stardust smiled.
Lunarstar stood up and followed him into the forest with normal
Stardust looked at her and thought, "Maybe there is something
special about her but those eyes, that's not normal for a pony.
They looked more like Green Cat's eyes.
Stardust knew there was something strange about Lunarstar and
he was determined to find out what it was.
