It was morning and Luna in her winged unicorn form, left her
room and walked down stairs. She went to the dinning room and
sat at the table as he mother brought her pan cakes.
"Mom, where's Blizzard?" Luna asked.
"He's still asleep," Rosebud answered.
"Where's Skyview and Starfire?" Luna asked.
"Outside in the back yard," Rosebud answered, walking
back into the kitchen.
"Oh," Luna replied.
There was no one in the house except for her, Rosebud and Blizzard
who was still sleeping. She had hoped Blizzard was awake. She
wanted to see him and talk to him.
"Mom, I'm going to ask my friends to come over," Luna
"I don't know Luna. Blizzard just got here, he may not be
ready to see anyone," Rosebud replied.
"He needs friends," Luna replied. She stood up and
walked to the phone. She called each of her friends and asked
them to come over. Starfire walked in just as Luna had called
her last friend.
"Starfire!" Luna exclaimed happily. She rushed across
the living room and hugged him, "I'm so glad your staying."
Starfire smiled, "So am I Luna. Now I must check on Blizzard."
Rosebud walked into the living room, "Lunarstar. Hurry and
eat your breakfast before your friends gets here."
"Friends?" Starfire asked, "They're coming over?"
"I invited them and I hope Blizzard wakes up in time to
see them," Luna replied.
Luna turned and went to the dinning room and ate her breakfast.
Just as Luna had finished, there was a knock at the door.
Rosebud walked to the door and answered it.
"Hello girls...Blueberry," Rosebud smiled, "Come
Luna walked into the Kitchen and sat her plate on the counter,
then she went to the living room where her friends sat on the
couches and floor waiting.
"Hi, Lunarstar," Patch exclaimed happily.
"So where is Blizzard?" Starlight asked.
"He's a sleep," Luna answered.
"He said he wasn't coming back," Blueberry exclaimed.
"Well, he came back last night and looked awful," Luna
Just then Skyview walked in the house from the kitchen and entered
the living room, surprising, Raspberry and Blueberry.
Skyview stopped and smiled, "Hi, girls," Then he noticed
two familiar ponies, "Hello. It's...nice to see you two."
"Umm. Hi," Blueberry replied.
"It's been a long time since you saw me. You must be Blueberry,"
"Yes," Blueberry replied.
"I remember you. You got lost in the forest," Skyview
"Well, thank you for helping me," Raspberry replied
"Lost in the forest?" Blueberry asked curiously.
"That was a while ago, Blueberry. Oh, How is Little Flitter?"
"Just fine, She's always curious and tends to get in trouble
because of it," Skyview replied.
"Who?" Blueberry asked.
"She was my friend," Raspberry explained.
"She's a summer wing pony," Skyview answered, "She's
very small with large butterfly wings."
Just then Starfire walked downstairs and approached Skyview.
"What took you so long?" Skyview asked him.
"He woke up and doesn't want to get out of bed because he
felt sore," Starfire answered, "It took me all this
time to talk him into coming downstairs." Starfire looked
at Raspberry and Blueberry, "Hello."
"Hi," Raspberry muttered not wanting to say more to
him. She remembered that last few times she met him.
"I guess you haven't forgotten about me. I scared you off
last time. I couldn't have you following me," Starfire explained.
"What did you do to her?" Skyview asked.
"I just told her we would get rid of her," Starfire
answered, then he glared at him, "You scared her too not
so long ago either. When we were visiting here and you left to
scare her off from the house."
Skyview glared at him, "You would have to remember that."
Starfire looked at Raspberry and smiled, "I'm sorry about
scaring you. I'm really a fun loving pony."
Raspberry smiled feeling relieved he was really nice.
"Yeah, fun loving. That pretty much fits you," Skyview
"A super ear grouch fits you," Starfire replied.
Luna couldn't hold it, she began to laugh as the two argued
Just then Blizzard walked downstairs carefully to the bottom
step. He turned and stopped suddenly staring at the girls in
the living room.
"Blizzard come and join us," Starfire suggested.
As Blizzard approached them, the girls noticed his hairy feet
and couldn't believe he kept it hidden from them. He sat on the
floor but making sure he wasn't to close to everyone.
"I see you could finally join us downstairs," Skyview
Blizzard looked up at Starfire annoyingly, "I didn't have
much choice. I got pushed off the bed."
Skyview chuckled, "He's persistent, isn't he?"
"Blizzard I thought you wasn't coming back," Raspberry
"I had no choice. I didn't know where else to go,"
Blizzard answered sadly.
"What happened to you?" Blueberry asked, "Where
did you go after the fight?"
Blizzard sighed sadly staring at the floor, "Well it started
when I thought Princess Luna was dead. I ran back through the
gate and flew home."
"Where do you live?" Skyview asked.
Blizzard hesitated, wondering if he should tell them. He thought
about what his father had did to him and knew his father never
"At the Volcano of Gloom," Blizzard answered.
"The witches mountain?" Skyview exclaimed.
Blizzard looked at him curiously, not sure what he's was talking
"The what?" Luna asked not sure she heard him right.
"Centuries ago there used to be three witches living in
the volcano. They caused a lot of trouble but the mother was
the one you had to watch out for. After awhile they just disappeared,
no one had ever seen them again," Skyview explained.
"There's paintings of them in the hall. I don't know anything
else about them. Father refuse to tell me," Blizzard replied,
"Well, anyways. I returned home upset over the fact Luna
was dead. Father saw me upset and asked what happened. So I told
him Princess Luna was dead. He stared at me silently. He had
guessed I had feelings for her. He asked for proof and I told
him I forgot it. He was furious with me. He said I was useless.
He said raising me was a waste of time. He said I should never
have fallen in love and because of that he called me a traitor.
He repeated me the rules and that I had broken everyone of them
and lied to his face. He threw a fireball at me which caught
me by surprise. I ran and he was doing his best not to miss me.
When he couldn't hit me with fire, he suddenly spit at me."
"Eww," the girls exclaimed.
"Well, it was slimy and it ate my fur. The green slime stung
my skin. It hurt so bad but I had to keep running. Father chased
me out the door and as far as he could. I flew from the volcano
and went to a lake. I walked in it but the slime wouldn't come
off. It hurt to even try and pull it off. I left the lake and
came here. The soldiers at the gate gave me a hard time but I
managed to get through them."
"What do you mean by throwing fireballs?" Starfire
"He can breath fire," Blizzard answered.
"A pony that can breath fire?" Patch asked.
"That's not possible," Bright Eyes exclaimed.
"It's true. He breaths fire," Blizzard calmly said.
"If you needed proof that she was dead, why didn't you get
a fake one and lie about it?" Raspberry asked.
"I was to bring Princess Luna's horn back with me as proof,"
"Why didn't you get another horn and say it was hers?"
Bon Bon asked.
Blizzard looked at Luna standing next to him, "Her horn
is pearly. I can not find another horn like it."
The girls looked as if they just noticed it for the first time.
Luna looked away, not liking the stares.
"So what are you going to do now?" Raspberry asked.
Blizzard looked at the floor sadly, "I don't know. I can't
return home either."
Rosebud walked in the living room after hearing everything he
said, "You are welcome to stay here with us."
Blizzard looked at her and the black ponies then at a very excited
Luna, "For now."
"Blizzard, who is your father?" Skyview asked, "What's
his name? Where did he come from?"
Blizzard sighed at the thought of his father, "his name
is Teriney. He even forbids me to call him father. I don't know
anything else about him."
"Are you serious?" Raspberry asked, "He's your
father. That's what your suppose to call him."
"Try and tell him that," Blizzard replied.
"I had never heard of the name Teriney before," Starfire
exclaimed, "What does he look like?"
"He's dark green with red and white hair. He's got golden
yellow eyes and can be very mean," Blizzard answered.
"I know I have never heard or seen a pony like that,"
"You wouldn't either. He never shows himself to anyone other
than me," Blizzard told him.
"That's awful, I mean to think what he's done to you all
this time and you had to live with him," Luna muttered sadly.
Blizzard sighed sadly at the thought of Teriney.
"I'm sorry Blizzard I didn't mean to bring back memories,"
Luna quickly said.
"I'll always have them," Blizzard told her.
"But it'll get easier over the years," Skyview told
Rosebud walked up to Blizzard and smiled, "Lets celebrate."
"Why" Luna asked looking up at her.
"He is here and is staying with us. We're all together.
I just feel like celebrating," Rosebud paused for a minute,
"how about a picnic?"
"Sure," The girls exclaimed.
"You can count me out," Skyview said, "I'm not
going out in public."
"Well we could have a picnic else where, far from other
ponies," Rosebud proposed.
"Oh, how about the gate?" Luna asked, "It's quiet,
no one goes there and it's pretty at this time of year."
Rosebud smiled, "That's perfect."
"I'll go then," Skyview remarked.
"Great, I just have to pack the food," Rosebud replied.
"I'll go home and pack some food too," Bon Bon said.
She stood up and left the house, hurrying home as fast as she
"Luna, go tell your father where we're going," Rosebud
Luna stood up and left the living room. She hurried outside towards
the shed. Blizzard watched her leave, then he stood up and followed
her. Everyone watched wondering what he was up to. Skyview stood
up and watched through the kitchen.
Blizzard left the kitchen and walked outside waiting on the
porch. Luna told her father about the picnic and the gate, then
she turned and left. She was surprised to see Blizzard on the
porch and wondered why he was outside. She stepped on the porch
and looked at him curiously, "What is it?"
Blizzard looked at her sadly, "I'm so sorry, Princess Luna.
I really am."
Luna smiled, "Please call me Luna or Lunarstar," She
leaned towards him and lightly kissed him on the cheek, "I'll
give you a proper kiss when your feeling better."
Blizzard smiled at her, "I still love you."
"So do I Blizzard," Luna replied.
Skyview watched suspiously, "Does Luna love Blizzard?"
"Yes," everyone replied.
"We'll have to tell Stardust this when we see him again,"
"Well, don't say anything today," Rosebud told him,
"I want Blizzard to enjoy himself and forget about his father.
He's had a rough few nights."
Skyview looked at her surprisingly at her tone of voice. She
sounded determine not to let anything ruin today's picnic.
"Ok, I suppose I can let Stardust do all the talking,"
"Great, now to start packing food," Rosebud exclaimed
She turned and went into the kitchen.
Luna, her mother, friends and uncles spent the day by the
Gate, eating and laughing, trying their best to get Blizzard
to enjoy himself. Blizzard remained the calm clueless pony who
didn't want to try and have fun, he would rather sit and relax
his sore skin.
