Star Cluster sat on the golden throne leaning back on the
red velvet seat. He wore the golden crown on his head with the
key around his next. He put his front hooves together thinking
about what Skyview had told him when they had came back from
Suddenly there was hoofs sounds, Star Cluster looked up and saw
Skyview and Starfire approaching him.
You asked for us?" Skyview asked, standing in front of the
"Yes," Star Cluster sat up and leaned forward, "I
want you to get Stardust, I already have someone getting the
"But I tried, he doesn't want to come back," Skyview
"Doesn't want to?" Star Cluster yelled, "I did
not send you two the first time to see if he wanted to return
and yet you came back without him," he stood up and walked
towards them, "Go and get him. I want him here. I don't
care if he doesn't want to come back!"
Skyview and Starfire could see anger in his eyes, for a second
Skyview thought he saw worry in his eyes as well.
"On your way to Moonlight Castle, I want you to stop and
check out a few houses. I've been told they're trying to turn
the ponies in Ponyland against me," Star Cluster said, "Now
Skyview and Starfire tuned and hurried out of the throne room
as quickly as they could. Star Cluster turned and walked back
to the throne, sitting down and stretching his hind legs out.
"I'm telling you it's too late, sooner or later Stardust
"No!" Star Cluster snapped, "No, I will not allow
it to happen!"
"Don't be stupid Star Cluster, use your head. It's too late,
you heard Skyview when they returned from the Gate. I suggest
you start thinking of another plan if those two fail to get him,"
The voice said.
"Yes, your right of course," Star Cluster replied,
"I'm going to need time to think."
Just outside of Ponyland the elves drove the wagon along the
bumpy, grassy path. They could see the top towers of Dream Castle
in the distance over the hills.
Lunarstar woke up, she tried to move but couldn't. Her front
feet were stretched out in front of her and her head was between
her front legs. She couldn't lift her head or move her back legs.
She tried to look around be saw only darkness. She lit her horn
and tilted her head looking around with one eye. She was wrapped
in a blue rug. Lunarstar could hear the elves talking.
"We're almost to Ponyland."
"Those Ponies at Moonlight Castle should know she's gone
One of the elves laughed, "It's far to late for them to
Lunarstar panic when she heard them talking about Dream Castle.
She began to cry as tears fell down her cheeks. She moaned and
yelled as she wiggled her body.
"You hear that?"
"I think she woke up."
"We should let her out for air so we don't suffocate her."
"Good idea, we'll blindfold her too."
Lunarstar felt the wagon stop and a minute later she was lifter
off the wagon.
"Get ready to grab her."
Lunarstar knew that only thing, they were going to let her out.
"If I can make them think I'm someone else, I might have
a chance to escape," Lunarstar thought, as her tears stopped
flowing. While her horn was still glowing, her squished wings
began to disappear then her horn. Her long tangled up white hair
began to change to purple.
She had just changed when she felt herself being unwrapped in
the rug. She fell out of the blue rug and hit the ground.
"What the...!" one of them exclaimed surprisingly.
The elves stood for a second staring at her. Lunarstar stood
up and started to leave, one of the elves grabbed her around
the neck but Lunarstar pushed on and continued running. The elf
held on as he hung from her side. He tried to turn her head by
her mane so she would fall but Lunarstar kept on running with
the rest of the elves chasing after her. She ran by thick trees
and bushes. The elf could barley hold on as she ran, he did
his best not to get stepped on by her feet. Lunarstar ran by
a tree suddenly, hitting the elf in the face. He let go of her
and fell to the ground unconscious.
Lunarstar didn't stop or slow down. When the elf fell off, she
felt lighter and began running faster. The elves had lost sight
of her and stopped to check on the unconscious elf.
"He's fine," one of them said as he rolled over the
"What about that pony?"
"Nothing, we can't catch her...odd, I could have sworn we
put the Princess in there."
"We have to go back and get her."
"What?" They all exclaimed.
"We'll make some excuse but we have to get the Princess."
Two elves picked up the unconscious elf and carried him back
to the wagon. They all climbed in the wagon and had the donkey
turn it around.
Lunarstar was running scared, she wanted to get far away from
the elves as possible. She stayed in her earth form for awhile
till she felt safe to change back.
Trees and bushes quicky flew past her. She jumped over logs,
ran over broken twigs and through a few bushes. She wasn't going
to stop till her legs gave out.
