It was in the afternoon and Luna was in her earth pony form.
She walked upstairs to Blizzard's room. Since the door was closed,
she knocked, "Blizzard!"
Blizzard was on his bed leaning against his pillow and reading
his book when he heard Luna, "What?"
"Want to go outside and play in the park with my friends?"
"No, I'm busy reading," Blizzard replied.
Luna felt disappointed and signed sadly. She turned and left
walking downstairs. Starfire was in the dinning room coloring
when he noticed the sad look on Luna's face.
"Is something wrong, Luna?" Starfire asked.
"No not really. I'm going out and play with my friends.
Bye," Luna exclaimed putting on a fake smile. Luna left
the house and ran down the street. Skyview walked out of the
family room and stood at the steps.
"Was there something wrong with her?" Skyview asked.
Starfire stood up from the table and walked across the living
room to the steps.
"I don't know. She came downstairs looking a bit sad so
I asked her if there was something wrong and she said not really,"
Skyview looked at him suspiously.
Just then there was a knock at the door. Starfire flattened
his wings and cracked the door opened while Skyview remained
hidden behind the door. Starfire smiled and was relieved to see
it was only Blueberry, "I'm afraid you missed Luna."
"I know. I didn't come here to see her. I wanted to talk
to Blizzard. I was hoping he could play with me and my friends
at the park," Blueberry replied.
"Come on in," Starfire told him and opened the door
for him. Blueberry walked into the house and stood in front of
"He's up stairs in the second room on the right," Starfire
Blueberry went upstairs and found the room but the door was close.
He knocked on the door, "Blizzard?"
Blizzard sighed, he was getting tired of interruptions, "What?"
"Can I come in for a minute?" Blueberry asked.
Blueberry opened the door and walked in, surprised to see Blizzard
reading in bed.
"I was wondering if you want to come to the park and play
with me and the my friends?" Blueberry asked.
"No," Blizzard replied.
"We need one more pony on the team to play soccer,' Blueberry
"No, I'd rather read this book," Blizzard replied.
"Oh," Blueberry replied, "Go ahead and keep your
nose in the book then," Then he turned and left.
Blizzard didn't know what he meant and didn't care, he was too
interested in the book to leave it.
Blueberry went down stairs feeling disappointed.
"What's wrong?" Starfire asked, "Don't say nothing.
I can see it written all over your face."
"Blizzard doesn't want to come. He's busy reading,"
Blueberry replied, "Well, I shouldn't be to surprised, he
never wanted to play with us before." Then he opened the
door and was about to leave when Skyview stopped him.
"Wait, Blueberry," Skyview exclaimed and shut the front
door, "Starfire, he's been reading since he got up this
morning. I think it's time he left the house for awhile."
Starfire smiled, "What are you waiting for then?" The
two black ponies went upstairs and into Blizzard's room interrupting
"What?" Blizzard asked.
"Your going out with Blueberry," Skyview replied sternly.
"No," Blizzard replied.
"Yes you are," Skyview exclaimed.
"I'm not going outside, especially to the park," Blizzard
Starfire snatched his book from his hooves while Skyview picked
"Your going out," Skyview boldly told him.
Blizzard wiggled, "No, I don't want to go out!"
Skyview walked downstairs, "Blueberry opened the door."
Blueberry quickly opened the door and Skyview went outside and
dropped him to the ground, "now go and play with Blueberry."
Blizzard stood up and glared at him, "fine but I need to
wrap my feet first."
"Why?" Starfire asked peaking his head out of the house.
"I can't walk around and have ponies stare at my hairy feet,"
Blueberry walked outside and stood next to him, "It doesn't
"Your used to it and you know our secret," Blizzard
"Buster, Charades and Starfire walk around showing their
feet all the time. You can do the same. Now leave and have fun.
Blueberry, make sure he plays with you," Skyview told him.
Blueberry smiled, "I sure will."
Skyview hurried into the house before anyone saw him.
Blueberry turned and left with Blizzard at his side.
"Starfire, I'm going to follow Blizzard to the park and
watch him. Don't tell Luna and Blizzard," Skyview told him.
"Ok but why are you spying on him?" Starfire asked
"I'm just going to keep an eye on him. When I returned Stardust
to the gate, he asked me to keep an eye on Blizzard," Skyview
Starfire glared at him, "And you didn't tell me? Thanks
"He asked me," Skyview told him.
"It would still have been nice if I knew about it,"
Starfire told him.
"I'm sorry, perhaps I should have told you sooner. I'll
see you later," Skyview replied and then he turned into
a clouds and flew out of the house.
Skyview flew along the grass following the boys to the park.
When the boys came to a cleaning on a hill, Skyview hid at the
edge of the clearing. He ducked low to the grass and watched
from behind a bush.
Ace, lancer and Teddy were surprised to see Blueberry had managed
to bring Blizzard and was even more surprised to see his feet
"Your feet," Ace exclaimed surprisingly.
"What about my feet?" Blizzard exclaimed.
"I was just surprised to see you have hairy feet,"
Ace replied, "I mean there's no one around with feet like
"I've seen two ponies like that. Blizzard are you related
to them?" Lancer asked.
"Who?" Blizzard asked knowing who lancer was talking
"Those two ponies that walk around with feet like yours,"
"No," Blizzard flatly answered.
"So is that why you keep your feet wrapped?" Teddy
"That's one of my reasons," Blizzard answered, "I
didn't come here to talk about my feet. What it is that you want
me to play?"
"Well, It's soccer," Blueberry replied.
"How do you play it?" Blizzard asked.
"Are you serious? Teddy asked, "You don't know how
to play soccer?"
"If I did I wouldn't ask," Blizzard replied. He was
still upset that he was kicked out of the house to go and play.
"We have to team up. It's me and Teddy, against you and
Blueberry. Lancer is goalie. What you have to do is get the ball
in the net past Lancer. The one with the most points wins. Now
remember, we play as a team," Ace explained.
"You are to kick the ball, don't pick it up. Only the goalie
can pick it up. The rest is pretty much learn as you play,"
The two boys went to the center of the clearing while Lancer
stood at the goal post watching the ball. Ace kicked the ball.
Teddy ran for it but Blueberry managed to get it from him. Blizzard
ran and stood in front of Lancer. Blueberry kicked the ball to
Blizzard, "Kick it past him!"
Blizzard kicked the ball but Lancer managed to catch the ball.
"This isn't as easy as I thought it would be," Blizzard
Blizzard spent the rest of the afternoon playing and learning
to play as a team. As the sun began to set, he and Blueberry
Blueberry stood next to Blizzard trying to catch his breath,
"Now are you glad you stopped reading and came with me to
Blizzard smiled at him, "Yes, this game is actually fun,"
Then his smiled faded, "I think I just got to deep into
my book. I guess it's a bit hard to tear me away from book now
that I can read as many as I want."
Blueberry smiled, "It's fun to read but there are other
things to do than just reading."
Blizzard looked at the sun and saw it was starting to set, "I
got to get back to the house. Rosebud should be having dinner
"Bye," Blueberry told him.
Ace, Teddy and Lance waved at Blizzard ran through the park heading
back to the house. As he ran he thought about Luna and how she
asked to play but he said no. Blizzard sighed sadly, he felt
bad for not going out with Luna when she had asked.
