Buster and Charades left the girls and ran out of the park
heading towards the docks. Ponies nearby stared at them wondering
what was going on. Buster and Charades didn't care how many
ponies stopped and looked, they were too worried about Lunarstar
"Who could have wrote that note?" Buster asked.
"It wasn't her friends, it had to be someone who knows us
and..." Charades stopped, he had a scared look on his face.
"What?" Buster asked almost yelling.
"Who ever wrote that note knows about Lunarstar changing,"
Charades finally answered.
"Are you serious?" Buster asked surprisingly.
"They had to know about Lunarstar in order to know about
the full moon."
Buster just looked at him felling lost at what he was talking
about, "What did the letter say?"
"Oh, I forgot you didn't read the letter...um it said....Dear
Lunarstar, since it's a full moon we thought we would spend the
night on the docks. Meet us at Warehouse C. Sincerely, Buster
"Lets hurry!" Buster exclaimed.
They continued to run through town till the Sun was almost gone.
"You don't think," Buster hated to even mention it,
"one of the Black ponies found out, do you?"
Charades didn't answer he didn't want to believe the Black ponies
had discovered her big secret.
When they arrived at the docks the sky had turned dark, leaving
a faint orange color in the horizon. The Docks were deserted
and quiet, not a pony in sight. They stood trying to catch their
breaths, their coats glowed giving light to the area around them.
"I don't see her," Buster said worriedly as he looked
"Lets find C, hopefully she's there waiting," Charades
They ran down the docks passing the warehouses. Their legs were
worn out and they breathed heavily. "There...it is,"
Charades said breathlessly.
They ran to a warehouse with a large C above the large door.
Buster and Charades saw a door next to the large door that was
wide open. The lights were still on inside.
"She has to be in there," Buster exclaimed.
They hurried inside calling for Lunarstar but there was no answer,
only the echos of their voices. They walked around the boxes
through the pathways. Buster and Charades went in different direction
each calling for Lunarstar till they came upon some fallen boxes.
Charades looked around the boxes, he wasn't sure what he expected
to find, maybe evidence that Lunarstar was there or what caused
the boxes to fall.
Suddenly his eyes caught something under a small box. He moved
the box aside to reveal a white feather.
Buster pushed a box towards Charades, "Look at this box."
Charades looked and noticed the corner of the box had blood on
it, Charades touched the blood with his hoof, "It's fresh.
I wouldn't be surprise if that's Lunarstar's blood," Charades
picked up the white feather, "And there's only one pony
in this world with white wings."
"Lunarstar," Buster muttered.
"It looks to me someone made those boxes to fall on her,"
"The Black ponies," Buster muttered knowing he was
"We better get to the Gate quickly while we still have time.
Tell Lunarstar's Parents what's going on and meet me at the Gate,"
They hurried out of the warehouse and ran through the forest.
The sky had turned pitch black and the moon shined brightly by
the time they could see Lunarstar's house. They stood felling
the pain in their legs from running so far.
Rosebud passed in the living room, watching the window every
now and then. Booster stood at the window watching the sidewalk
hoping to see Buster and Charades with Lunarstar.
"Where is she? Buster and Charades should have been back
by now," Rosebud said worriedly, "You don't think they
got themselves in trouble with those Black ponies, do you?"
Booster didn't want to answer, it would only make Rosebud worry
even more. Booster walked up to Rosebud and rubbed his head against
her cheeks hoping it would calm her down a bit. Rosebud put her
head under his, leaning against the warmth of his coat.
Tears began to fall down her cheeks as she began to think the
Suddenly Buster walked in out of breath.
"Where's Lunarstar?" Rosebud asked noticing he was
the only one in the doorway.
"And Charades isn't with you?" Booster asked.
"No...He's at the Gate," Buster breathed heavily trying
his best to catch his breath, "We can't find...Lunarstar....her
friends got a note from us only we didn't write it," Buster
stopped and took a deep breath which helped quite a bit, "We
think the Black ponies took her so we are going through the Gate
to find her."
"Oh, please..." Rosebud began to cry.
"Hurry and find her," Booster added.
Buster rushed out of the door and ran into the forest. Rosebud
and Booster stood outside watching till they could no longer
see his glowing coat.
"Lunarstar..." Rosebud sobbed.
Booster walked Rosebud in the house and sat on the couch with
her wrapped around his arms.
"I'm sure Buster and Charades will find her," Booster
whispered in her ear.
"My little Lunastar...she must be so scared," Rosebud
Buster ran through the forest, running pass trees and bushes.
He quickly found the cobble stone trail and continued to run
up the hill but quickly slowed down to a walk. When he reached
the top, he stopped and rested for a few minutes.
Once he had caught his breath he ran through the forest and to
the meadow. It wasn't to hard to find Charades waiting, his coat
glowed, lighting up his surrounding.
