Lunarstar, her friends, Buster, Charades, Booster and Rosebud
sat in the living room as they continued to talk about Lunarstar.
"So that's why you never wanted to play with us," Patch
"You hung out with us a lot though," Starlight added.
"Yes," Lunarstar looked at her friends shyly, "well,
I have to be careful when I play. Ponies can't see my horns or
"Tell me about it," Buster suddenly said, "I'll
never forget the day she bumped into me...I can still feel you
"I'm sorry about that."
"No need to be sorry, I have a feeling it was meant to happen,"
"Oh..Lunarstar. Can you get the little green box from my
room?" Rosebud asked suddenly.
"Green box?" Lunarstar asked, it sounded familiar but
she just couldn't remember a green box.
"You know...the one with your pictures in them?"
"Oh!" Lunarstar suddenly remembered.
"Go on, Lunarstar. Hurry and get them," said Rosebud.
Suddenly Lunarstar winked out, catching the girls totally by
surprise. It was the last thing they had expected her to do,
disappear in front of them.
A second later Lunarstar appeared in the same spot she had been
in. Lunarstar held a Green rectangle box between her hoofs. Rosebud
took the box from Lunarstar and set it on the table in front
of her. She took the lid off and began taking out little pictures.
"I've been wanting to show these pictures for a long time,"
The girls each took a picture and looked at it, even Buster and
Charades took a picture.
"That's Lunarstar when she was a baby," Rosebud added.
"She's just as I remembered her," Charades commented.
"She's so cute," Starlight commented.
"She was the cutest baby I've seen," Rosebud remarked,
"and those tiny wings and horn...those small little feet...she
was so cute."
"Mom," Lunarstar exclaimed, blushing from her mother's
reaction to the pictures.
"Sorry honey but you were so adorable," Rosebud replied.
"What's this she's in?" Sweetheart asked handing the
picture to Rosebud.
Rosebud took the picture, "Why that's her little basket
we found her in."
Booster took the picture and stared at it, "I remember.
We had a hard time with her that night."
Rosebud laughed, "Yeah, I remember. She didn't take to us
right away. It took us a while to get her to trust us."
Buster and Charades laughed.
"I almost forgot about that," Charades remarked.
"She cried when she saw all of us. I guess so many soldiers
and servants staring at her scared her," Buster added.
"Would you girls like to hear the story?" Rosebud asked
Lunarstar had heard her baby story many times from her mother
but one more time would prove interesting just to see her friends
"Yeah!" the girls exclaimed.
"Well, it started the night we heard someone knocking at
the door. We opened it and found Lunarstar in that little basket.
We knew we had to take her and adopt her as our own," Rosebud
continued to tell the story and the girls sat quietly listening.
Rosebud carried the basket to the couch, Booster was right
She took the blanket off and stood looking lovingly at the glowing
Baby winged Unicorn, "Honey, she's so cute."
Booster lightly touched that baby's wings and tiny horn just
to be sure they were real and not some sort of trick, "They're
Rosebud couldn't resist it any longer. She reached in the basket
and pickup the baby. She held the her carefully in her arms.
Booster looked in the basket taking out the blankets, "I
don't see a note."
"Nothing?" Rosebud whispered, so the baby wouldn't
"Nothing, just a bunch of blankets," Booster put the
blankets back in the basket, "So I guess we have to name
"But what?" Rosebud asked.
They both looked at the baby who lit the living room area with
"Well..how about Glow or Starglow or Moonglow?" Booster
"I don't know about Glow, I mean it's...just to obvious,"
Rosebud whispered looking at the baby.
"Well, she does glow like the Moon and Stars so....how about
Starbright or Moon Star or..." Booster still couldn't think
of any more names.
"Oh...Moon Star..." Rosebud muttered.
"I'm not crazy about that name."
"I mean Lunarstar," Rosebud quickly said.
"Yes, I like that name...fits her perfectly," Booster
Lunarstar was stretched out in her arms with her front feet curled
under her chin and her head leaning agents Rosebud's coat.
"Lunarstar," Rosebud whispered.
Then a suddenly, Lunarstar began to move her feet then her head.
She slowly opened her eyes and stared at Rosebud and Booster.
"It just accrued to me...what do we feed her?" Booster
Lunarstar looked at Booster and then tears started to fill her
eyes, She looked up at Rosebud trying not to cry.
"Oh, she's going to cry," Rosebud muttered.
Then as they had expected, she started to cry softly, sounding
louder by the minute.
"Think she's hungry?" Rosebud asked.
"I don't know."
Rosebud walked over to Booster and gave him Lunarstar. Rosebud
went to the kitchen while Booster sat down on the couch trying
to calm Lunarstar down. As he sat on the couch listening to
her cry, he could her Rosebud in the kitchen warming something
up. A minute later she came out with a small bowel and sat next
Lunarstar held her front feet close to her stomach and cried
louder. Rosebud took a spoon and tried to feed Lunarstar but
she refused to eat.
"I don't think she's hungry," Rosebud remarked as she
continued to try and feed her.
"Ummm..."Booster muttered, "She could just be
scared of us."
Rosebud put the bowel on the table, "I guess your right
but how do we get her to stop crying?"
Booster handed Lunarstar back to Rosebud and stood up, "Well,
we find something to calm her down."
Booster looked around but all he saw were flowers in the vase
on the table. He took one of the flowers and held it up to Lunarstar.
She seem interested at first but then she went back to crying.
Tears fell down Lunarstar's tinny checks, her eyes continued
"It's getting late, lets take her to our room and try to
get her to sleep," Booster proposed, he took the basket
in his mouth and carried it to his room setting it by the bed
on the floor. Rosebud followed him and sat down on the green
sheets that was spread out on her bed.
Booster sat next to Rosebud, petting Lunarstar on the head to
get her to calm down.
Rosebud even tried to rock Lunarstar to sleep but it didn't work.
Rosebud stood up and put Lunarstar over her shoulder, patting
her on the back, hopping it would get her to sleep. Lunarstar
calmed down a bit but when she saw Booster on the bed, she cried
"I'm getting tired," Rosebud muttered.
Booster stood up and took Lunarstar in his arms, he walk around
the room to get her to sleep but it didn't work.
Rosebud took out the blankets in the basket while she glanced
outside. She noticed how dark it was and wondered if who ever
dropped off Lunarstar was still out there?
Booster had tried everything, just when he thought he got her
to quiet down, she'd look at him and start crying again.
"You try for a little bit," Booster said tiredly. He
handed her Lunarstar and took the Blankets from Rosebud.
He was so tied, he sat on the floor, setting the blankets near
Rosebud walked around the room a bit, sing a song in Lunarstar's
ear. Slowly Lunarstar began to fall asleep. Her eyes felt heavy
and her body began to feel relax. it wasn't to long till Lunarstar
was sound asleep.
Rosebud was about to say something to Booster when she noticed
he too was a sleep, curled up in a ball on the floor. Rosebud
set Lunarstar down on the blanket next to the basket.
She yawned and curled up next to Booster with her face right
up next to his. They slept soundly next to each other, Booster
on the left and Rosebud on the right with Lunarstar sleeping
it was well after midnight when Lunarstar stirred in her sleep.
She woke up feeling cold, she didn't have a blanket on, Rosebud
was so tired she forgot to cover her.
Lunarstar looked at Booster and Rosebud, they were huddling together
to keep each other warm. Lunarstar could feel the warmth coming
from their bodies. She slowly stood on her wobbly feet. She took
a few steps out of her blanket only to loose her balance and
fall down on her side.
She stood up and took a few steps. When she felt she was about
to loose her balance, she stopped and stood on her wobbly legs
til she felt ready to continue walking.
She slowly and carefully walked to Booster, suddenly she lost
her balance and fell bumping into his face.
Booster opened his eyes and was surprised to see Lunarstar struggling
to her feet. Once she was on her feet, she climbed up on his
nose and over to Rosebud's nose.
Rosebud woke up and gasped at Lunarstar stretched out across
"Don't move," Booster whispered.
Lunarstar fell off their face and carefully walked to a small
empty spot between them. She laid down next to their stomachs
and curled up in a ball, falling back to sleep again.
"Awwww, I guess she got cold," Rosebud said in a sweet
"I don't think she's scared of us anymore," Booster
Rosebud smiled agreeing to what he said. She looked next to the
basket and saw Lunarstar pink Blanket. She grabbed the blanket
in her mouth and covered Lunarstar with it. Then she nuzzled
her on her tinny checks, "Goodnight, Lunarstar."
Booster and Rosebud fell back to sleep feeling happy to have
Lunarstar, their special little baby girl.
