Lunarstar and her friends where at Sweetheart's house watching
TV. Her mother walked in the Livingroom with a large bowel of
Popcorn, setting it in front of them.
"Thanks, mom," Sweetheart commented.
"Your welcome," her mother replied heading to another
Lunarstar was in her earth form setting on the floor at the end
of the girls.
"Can someone pass the popcorn down?" Lunarstar asked.
"Sure," Starlight replied scooting the bowel across
the floor to the next pony.
"I can't believe Melody and her band are on TV," Bright
"And they're great!" added Patch.
"Didn't she say this is some kind of Contest?" Bon
"Yes and I hope she wins," answered Starlight.
Clover was about to grab the bowel from Lunarstar when she stopped
and stared at her, "Lunarstar, you look...I don't know...umm,
The girls looked at Lunarstar.
"I do?" Lunarstar asked surprisingly. She quickly looked
at her white coat, it was glowing but just barley. Lunarstar
was so used to seeing herself glow she hadn't noticed it till
now. She jumped off the floor and ran to the nearby window. She
spread the curtains and looked out. The sun was setting, half gone
in the horizon. Lunarstar turned around suddenly, "I'm sorry.
I have to go. I'm so late getting home."
Lunarstar rushed out the door without saying goodbye. She could
hear her friends yell, "See you tomorrow!"
Lunarstar shut the door and rushed out of the yard.
Sweetheart's mother walked in the living room after hearing the
girls yell, "What's going one?"
"Lunarstar had to leave, we were just saying goodbye."
"Oh," her mother replied, "It's a shame she couldn't
Lunarstar ran down the sidewalk as fast as her legs could
move. She scanned the houses and yards as she ran pass them making
sure no one was outside. She ran a few blocks till she was able
to see the town.
The Sun had disappeared and all was left of it was an orange
Lunarstar stopped, breathing heavily and trying to catch her
breath. Her legs were worn out. From a distance she could see
a few ponies walking through town. She knew she couldn't walk
through town glowing.
"I wished I could just wink home but my parents said not
to," Lunarstar sighed sadly.
She turned around and saw the forest, it was the only way around
The sky had gotten darker and the full moon was shining brighter
as did her white coat.
She ran pass the houses and into the forest. Once she was sure
she couldn't be seen from the nearby houses, she changed back
into a winged unicorn.
She ran pass the trees, bushes and rocks while staying close
to the houses. Her legs began to ache, she had to stop and rest.
Suddenly she heard a twig snap from the darkness. As she stared
nervously, she began to see three glowing figures. Lunarstar's
eyes widen in fear when she saw who it was.
"Starfire, could you make more noise?" Skyview asked
sarcastically as the three black ponies appeared from the darkness.
"I'm not light footed like you and Stardust," Starfire
"That is obvious," Skyview muttered.
Lunarstar's heart raced as she stared at the Black ponies. Their
coats were glowing but they weren't as bright as she was.
"Well, well. If it isn't Princess Lunarstar," Stardust
said coldly as he looked down at her.
Their blue eyes stared coldly at Lunarstar who was to afraid
"This can't be happening!" Lunarstar thought, "This
just can't be."
She didn't know what to do at first but she did know she felt
like running. She jumped to her feet as quickly as possible and
ran through the bushes towards town. Her legs moving as fast
as she could, her heart racing from fright. She could hear the
thundering hooves of the Black ponies running after her. Lunarstar
glanced back, Skyview and Starfire were getting closer but Stardust
was even closer to her than they were. Stardust would run in
high speed if Lunarstar hadn't been zig zagging through the forest.
Ahead of her, she could see the lights from town which meant
the forest would end soon. Stardust was getting closer, Lunarstar
tried to run faster but she was to worn out to run faster, her
legs was still aching. Lunarstar ran out of the forest and look
a flying leap in the air, flapping her wings as fast as she could.
Stardust tried to jump and grab her tail but missed.
Lunarstar felt relieved and thought she had gotten away but when
she glanced back she knew she was wrong. Starfire was flying
and getting closer, behind him was a gray cloud. Lunarstar knew
who the gray cloud was.
Suddenly Starfire flew faster and faster till he was like a blur,
passing Lunarstar. The sudden gust of strong wind blew her out
of the sky. She fell toward the ground twisting and twirling
not knowing which was the ground and the sky.
She landed in a tree braking the branches as she fell through.
She landed hard on the ground, her coat was full of scratches
and blood matted her fur from the broken branches.
She opened her eyes and saw Starfire standing not far from her
and then the gray cloud appeared next to him. The cloud formed
two ponies, Skyview and Stardust.
Lunarstar tried to jump to her feet and run but a cloud like
net appeared over her. It fell on top of her, covering her whole
body. It was light weight but solid, the cloud felt like cotton
that couldn't be torn apart. Lunarstar struggled in the net trying
to get to her feet, the more she tried the more she got tangled
The black ponies stood and laughed.
"You can try all you want, no one has ever been able to
brake free," Skyview stated with his horn still glowing.
Lunarstar looked up at them, her heart was racing so fast she
felt like fainting. She breathed heavily, not sure if she was
tired from running or scared to death. She didn't dare blink
or turn her eyes away from them. As they came closer, she struggled
in the net scooting herself away from them. Her eyes watered
to the point that she could hardly see them. Tears pored from
her eyes, soaking her cheeks.
"She's so scared, she's shaking," Starfire noticed
as he looked down at her.
Lunarstar hadn't realized she was so scared that her body was
shaking like a cold chill in the air. Starfire lifted his leg
and touched her hoof, curious to see what she would do.
Lunarstar jerked her hoof away from him and continued to shake.
She did her best not to cry loudly, scared of what the Black
ponies might do to her if she did, so she laid in the grass crying
"See? told you we could catch her if you listened to me,"
"I can't believe after all this time we finally caught her,"
Skyview said, glaring at her.
"Now Star Cluster can stop yelling at us about her,"
Lunarstar shook and cried, tears continued to pored from her
eyes, she stared at them wondering if she would ever see her
parents and friends again.
