Lunarstar left her room and walked downstairs to the kitchen
hoping her mother had fixed breakfast.
"Did you make any pan cakes?" Lunarstar asked as she
entered the kitchen.
"It's in the Dinning room, honey," Rosebud answered
while drying the dishes.
Lunarstar left the kitchen and walked in the Dinning room, on
the table was a plate full of pan cakes and a glass of orange
juice. Lunarstar sat down and began eating, she wondered what
her friends had planned today. She hoped it was something she
would be able to do with them for a change.
Buster walked in the Kitchen to the living room to sit on the
couch and relax, "Good morning, Lunarstar."
Lunarstar had finished her pan cakes and stood up with the plate,
She walked to the Kitchen and set the plate in the sink.
Suddenly the Phone rang, Lunarstar rushed to the Living room
and picked up the pink phone from the table.
"Lunarstar?" a voice asked.
"This is Melody. Me, Starlight and Patch were wondering
if you want to go Roller skating."
Rosebud walked in the living to find out who was on the phone.
"Roller Skating? But I never skated before."
"We'll teach you."
"I don't have skates."
"Patch has an extra pare she said you can have."
"Really?" Lunarstar asked, she couldn't believe someone
was giving her something.
"Yeah, so meet us in the park."
Lunarstar hung up the phone and turned around to find, Buster
and her mother listening.
"Your going Skating?" Rosebud asked.
"Just Roller Skating."
"At the Skating Rink?"
"No, in the park."
"You can't even Roller Skate, though."
"My friends are going to teach me." Lunarstar didn't
like the way her mother was asking questions. She started to
worry if her mother was going to let her go to the park.
"Well, you be very careful. What ever you do don't bump
into anyone," Rosebud ordered.
"Ponies may not see your wings and horn but they can feel
it," Rosebud stated.
"Yeah, like the time you first bumped into me. I can still
feel your horn on my shoulders," Buster remarked.
"Oh...I'm sorry about that. I was almost late for school
that day and I was in a hurry."
"Well, Lunarstar. it's very important that you don't bump
into ponies or have them touch you," Rosebud said again.
"I know, mom."
"Well, have fun," Rosebud said.
"I will, bye!" Lunarstar ran out of the house, changing
into an earth pony. She couldn't believe her mother was letting
her Roller Skate. She was actually going to have fun. It was
even a perfect day to Roller Skate.
The Sun was shining, the wind was blowing and the birds were
chirping. Ponies were out walking the sidewalks and around town.
Lunarstar rushed into the park and looked around for her friends
but there was no sign of them.
"Lunarstar!" yelled a voice.
Lunarstar looked to her left and saw her friends wearing Roller
Skates on their feet. Patch was carrying an extra pare in her
mouth and set them in front of Lunarstar.
The skates were blue with purple moon and stars. Lunarstar sat
down on the sidewalk, putting the Roller Skates on. When she
was done she slowly got on her feet. Her front leg rolled out
from under her and the other front leg followed putting Lunarstar
in an odd pose.
Her two friend just stood and laughed.
Lunarstar stood up again but then her back legs wouldn't stay
still and suddenly she fell on her butt.
The girls laughed even harder.
"Are you going to help me?" Lunarstar asked glaring
"I'm sorry...Lunarstar," Melody continued to laugh.
The two girls tried hard to control themselves, just long enough
to help Lunarstar stand on her feet.
"Let me get on my feet first," Lunarstar tried again
but her feet wouldn't stay still.
"Don't move, hold your feet still," Patch exclaimed.
Patch and Melody went behind Lunarstar and took of their front
"We'll push you," Melody Proposed.
Lunarstar had never aloud anyone to touch her but she didn't
see any harm in having her friends push her from behind.
"Ok but not to hard."
"You can't learn to skate if your moving so slow,"
They gave her a push and Lunarstar rolled down the sidewalk with
her friends behind her.
"Now what?" Lunarstar asked.
"Keep moving your feet!" Melody answered.
Lunarstar tried moving her feet forwards and back but she kept
slowing down and then her front legs rolled out in front of her.
She stopped on the grass with her butt and tail in the air.
Melody and Patch couldn't stop laughing. Starlight rolled up
to Lunarstar, giggling.
"Are you ok?" Starlight asked.
"I just can't skate," Lunarstar replied sadly.
"It'll take a while to learn."
Lunarstar stood which was easier to do on the grass. When she
walked to the sidewalk her feet began to roll out from under
her. Patch quickly pushed her towards the thick forest. Lunarstar
flew down the sidewalk almost running over other ponies.
"Sorry!" Lunarstar yelled back.
Lunarstar couldn't stop, then she noticed she was gaining speed
as she was going down a slight hill.
"I can't stop!" Lunarstar yelled.
The girls skated as fast as they could after her.
As Lunarstar skated down the sidewalk, she noticed the lake to
her left just pass the trees.
"Watch out!" Patch yelled.
Lunarstar turned and looked ahead, a pony was coming across the
four way crosswalk. Lunarstar couldn't stop and the pony braced
himself for the impact.
Lunarstar bumped into the pony on the side, losing her footing
and sliding under him. Lunarstar looked up to see who she bumped
into and to her surprise it was Stardust who couldn't believe
what just happened.
Lunarstar stared up at him, for a split second she forgot she
was in her earth pony form.
"Lunarstar," Starlight called, "Are you alright?"
Stardust was surprised when he heard the name but tried not to
show any expressions, "Watch where your going."
"Sorry, mister. We were trying to teach her to skate,"
"I'm...sorry..." Lunarstar finally was able to say,
"This is my first time skating."
Stardust stepped a side so Lunarstar could stand up. Her friends
were going to help when Lunarstar stopped them, fearing they
might touch her wings, "No, that's ok. I can do it."
"Well, ok," Patch replied.
Lunarstar stood on her feet but then her back feet rolled under
her and she fell on her butt.
The girls tried hard not to laugh, even Stardust found it funny
who couldn't stop giggling to himself. Lunarstar stood on her
feet again but this time she was able to keep from falling.
"See? your learning," Melody exclaimed.
Patch pushed Lunarstar and the three girls skated after her.
Stardust stood and watched till the girls had disappeared behind
the trees and bushes.
"Lunarstar. Same name as the Princess. I guess it must be
a popular name." Stardust shrugged it off and walked away.
The girls continued to teach Lunarstar to Skate throughout most
of the day. After a while Lunarstar noticed the Sun setting,
"I have to go home."
"Now?" Patch asked.
"You always have to be home before dark," Melody exclaimed.
"My parents wants me to." Lunarstar felt sad, she couldn't
tell them it had something to do with the Full moon.
"It's ok. I have to be going home anyways," Starlight
Lunarstar took the skates off her feet, "So, I can keep
"Sure, Those are my extra pare which I rarely war anyway,"
"Thank you!" Lunarstar exclaimed happily.
"Bye, see you tomorrow!" The girls said as the left.
Lunarstar said her good byes and carried the skates in her
mouth. As she walked around the lake, she hadn't realized til
now how sore she felt. Her butt was hurting and her legs hurt
from falling on them, her mussels felt tight and sore. Lunarstar
stopped and looked around there were a few ponies walking on
the other side of the lake, "It'll be better if I wink home,"
she hurried behind a bush and disappeared leaving twinkling star
She reappeared in her house at the front door scaring her mother
to death. Lunarstar changed into a winged Unicorn, looking up
at her mother.
"Lunarstar!" Rosebud exclaimed.
Lunarstar dropped the skates on the floor, "I'm sorry, mom."
The others came to the door when they heard Rosebud yell.
"Why didn't you walk home?" Rosebud asked.
"I'm too sore to walk."
Booster laughed, he knew why Lunarstar was so sore.
"My friends tried to teach me to skate but..."
"You fell down one too many times," Booster laughed.
Lunarstar blushed and the others began to laugh.
"My butt hurts and so does my legs."
"Lunarstar," Rosebud giggled, "Why don't you eat
dinner and take a long bath afterwards?"
The bath sounded good to Lunarstar, she couldn't wait to soak
her sore legs in the water.
"Well, lets eat dinner," Booster proposed after laughing
After dinner Lunarstar winked to the bathroom and filled the
tub with warm water. She felt the worm steam coming off the water,
"that feels so good."
She put one foot in the water and then the other 3. Her legs
was feeling better, then she laid down with her head and wings
sticking out of the water. she could feel her aching body feeling
better, her mussels began to relax and the legs tingles from
the soreness. After she felt better laying in the water she got
out and dried her soaking coat with a towel sitting on the floor,
with another towel she died her mane which took awhile since
it was so long. Then she dried her tail which was also long.
She put the towels in the basket by the door and went to her
"Goodnight!" Lunarstar yelled.
"Goodnight!" her parents responded. Buster and Charades
wasn't there, they had left after dinner.
Lunarstar still felt wet but dry enough to go to bed. She climbed
in bed and quickly fell asleep.
