Blizzard was sitting on the grass deep in the forest working
on his school work as the sky quickly got dark. He had just finished
before he could no longer see his book. He closed his book, leaving
his paper in the book and put it in his bag. Then he stood up,
took his cloak from under the bush and put it on. He took off
his pouch from his neck leaving his golden charm visible. He
covered his head with his hooded cloak and disappeared in a cluster
of snow flakes. He flew in the wind over the dark forest till
he reached the community of houses. He landed on the street appearing
from the snow flakes. His dark hooded cloak blended in the darkness
except for his hairy ice blue feet and tail. He continued walking
silently looking around, listening to the slightest sound. His
hoofs were silent as he took careful steps. A few of the houses
he past still had their lights on, some ponies had turned their
lights off and went to bed.
Blizzard walked from the houses to town which was just as
quiet. He wondered around town looking for Princess Luna, hoping
he would find her. At times when he heard a noise, he paused
and turned to find it was just a cat chasing a mouse. Blizzard
wondered from town to the edge of town near the ocean. He could
smell the fresh sea blowing in the wind. He continued to follow
the smell and came to a hill. In the distance was the ocean and
several large ships and warehouses. He walked down the grassy
hill towards the docks. He was amazed at the large body of water,
he had never seen an ocean before. He stood at the very edge
of the docks staring and forgetting about time.
"So this must be what an ocean looks like," Blizzard
thought. He could see the stars reflection and crescent moon.
After awhile he turned and continued walking down the docks gasping
at the large ships. The ropes that tied the ships to the docks
were thicker than normal ropes. Blizzard looked at the warehouses
and noticed each one had a letter. He wasn't sure the purpose
for it but knew it had to be important. He walked past a small
dinner and headed towards the forest.
He wondered if the Princess liked to run through the forest
as he remembered the girls telling him stories. He walked up
a slight hill as the forest got darker. The hill suddenly got
steep, when he reached the top, he stopped. In the darkness was
a shack. It was so dark he could hardly tell what it is. He quietly
walked up to it and listened at the door but he heard nothing.
He cracked the door opened and looked around in the darkness
but it was so dark, he couldn't see. He walked in hoping no one
was inside. He walked around expecting to hit something but he
"This place is empty. I wonder if I can stay here for awhile?"
Blizzard thought, "I'll have to come back at day light and
get a better look around."
Blizzard left the shack and continued walking into the forest
while taking carful steps. He wanted to but making sure the princess
wouldn't hear him, he also wanted to listen for any kind of noise.
He wondered far from where he found the shack with the town in
the distance. He was starting to wonder if he would ever see
her. Would she be hard to catch since she's a winged unicorn.
He had seen many different ponies but he never seen or heard
of a flying unicorn. Suddenly he stopped, he remembered a picture
he saw in Princess Luna's room. It was a picture of Luna with
her friends. He only saw the picture for a minute so he couldn't
quite remember what her friends looked like.
He continued walking as he thought hard on the picture but all
he could see was Luna, a pure white winged unicorn with long
white hair. He shook the thought out of his mind and concentrated
on the other ponies. He knew there was more than two. As he roamed
the forest for what seemed like an hour he started to think he
wasn't going to find her tonight.
"It's useless looking tonight. I guess she's not out,"
He turned and walked from the cleaning to the forest and had
just reach the forest edge when he heard a noise. Blizzard stopped
and looked around. It didn't sound like a wild animal. It was
more like someone was running. He ducked low behind a tree and
looked around hoping to see who ever it was. The noise got louder
when suddenly, he saw Princess Luna running through the forest
smiling and laughing. She was chasing a bird like it was a game
to her. Blizzard stared at her, he couldn't believe she was a
real live winged unicorn and she was so close to him. He was
so busy being staring at her that he forgot to go after her.
By the time he snapped out of it, Luna had ran into the clearing
and across to the other forest. Blizzard stood up still surprised.
"What is wrong with me? She was right there!" Blizzard
thought, "next time then. I'll be sure to get her."
Blizzard turned into a cluster of snow flakes and flew back to
the forest where he usually slept.
When morning came, Blizzard woke up and took off his cloak.
He yawned and stretched. Then he stood up remembering what had
happened last night.
"The shack," Blizzard muttered.
He took his bag and cloak, then he disappeared in a cluster of
snow flakes. He flew from the forest, over the houses, town and
the docks. He landed in the forest on a hill in front of the
shack. He appeared from the snowflakes and stared at the shack.
It was quiet and the trees were tall casting a shadow over the
shack. He walked up to the door and opened it. The inside was
a bit dark with one window. The floor was dusty which told him
no one had used it in a long time.
"I'll stay here. This is a perfect place to stay. Now I'll
need some light in here and some blankets and a pillow,"
Blizzard shut the door behind him, "I'll have to get it
from home the next time I return."
Blizzard set his stuff on the floor and left the shack to sit
at the cliff, watching the ocean.
He spent all day there thinking about Princess Luna and his orders
to kill her.
