The Gnome had entered Dream Castle as the soldiers opened
the doors for him. The soldiers behind him refused to enter,
they knew Star Cluster would not be happy to see them.
"Are you guys coming?" The Gnome asked them.
"No, we are returning to our duties. You can tell King Star
Cluster that you failed," the blue soldier replied. He turned
around and left with the soldiers behind him. The Gnome continued
into the castle and walked through the halls till he came to
the throne room. The soldiers at the throne room doors stepped
in front of the doors.
"I'm here to report to King Star Cluster," the Gnome
The soldiers stepped aside and opened the door, letting the gnome
in. He walked pass the soldiers and into the room. He jumped
down the stairs skipping a few steps. He followed the red rug
passing the large water fountain. Star Cluster sat on the throne
with the staff in his hooves.
"Where are they?" Star Cluster asked calmly.
"I couldn't bring them-"
"You had the pouch of sparkle dust," Star Cluster pointed
"You Majesty, I had the Princess in a spell, she did everything
I told her to. I had her catch the black ponies after the soldiers
"So where is she?" Star Cluster exclaimed, feeling
impatient, he knew the Gnome was hiding something.
"She...broke out of my spell...She-"
"What?!" Star Cluster cried Feeling angry about the
Gnome's failure, "You lost her and the black ponies?"
"Your Majesty, it wasn't my fault. She...changed..."
"Changed? What do you mean?" Star Cluster asked curiously.
"Her eyes...changed to green...like a cats eyes. Her voice
had changed as well. It was like she was a different pony,"
the Gnome explained.
"Green Cats eyes?" The voice asked.
The Gnome looked around where the voice came from, he knew there
was no one else in the room.
"Return him to your collection," the voice ordered.
Star Cluster stood up and pointed the staff at the Gnome. Lighting
Shot out and hit the shocked Gnome. He froze and shrunk, then
a crystal ball formed around him, trapping him inside.
"What a waste. That story about the eyes and voice was the
stupidest excuse if I ever heard one," Star Cluster walked
to the crystal ball and picked it up.
"Green Cat eyes..." the voice mumbled as he continued
to repeat the words, "Green cat...eyes."
"Don't tell me you believe him?" Star Cluster asked.
"Green...cat eyes...It sounds very familiar," The voice
replied, a few minutes later the voice gasped, "No it can't
"Can't be what?" Star Cluster asked.
"It's not possible," The voice added still surprised,
"All white with green cat eyes....it can't be...her."
"Who?" Star Cluster asked.
The voice became silent for a few minutes pondering on what the
Gnome had said.
"Well?" Star Cluster asked.
"Bring the Princess to me, alive and unharmed," the
"I thought you wanted her dead earlier," Star Cluster
"I did and now I don't," The voice replied.
Just then a soldier walked in the room and bowed at Star Cluster,
"Your Majesty, Stardust has gathered a large army at the
base of Mooney Mountain."
"Humm, so Stardust plans to attack," Star Cluster muttered,
"Gather the other Kingdoms here. Send the Pegasus with a
note and get the soldiers ready for battle. I want to know the
minute Stardust and his army leaves Mooney Mountain."
"Yes, your Majesty," the soldier stood up and left
"I will not loose Dream Castle!" Star Cluster exclaimed.
"Bring the Princess to me. I will turn her against Stardust.
I guarantee you, with her on your side, you will never have to
worry about Losing dream Castle," the voice replied.
"What can she possibly do to win the battle?" Star
"If she is who I think she is, you'll be surprised what
she would do," the voice replied.
The staff turned into a key and appeared around Star Cluster's
neck. He continued on the red rug and left the throne room with
the crystal ball in his hoof.
