It was morning and the birds chirped loudly among the trees
as the sun was rose higher in the sky. Luna ran out of the house
in her earth form with her school bag around her neck. She ran
as fast as she could down the street. When she reached the park
she her legs were worn out.
"I should do my homework sooner next time," Luna thought.
Just then she saw Clover and who was also late, "Clover!"
Clover was out of breath and gave a weak smile when she saw Luna.
They meet up and ran together towards school.
"I...got to bed late," Clover muttered.
Suddenly they ran into a pony and fell, dropping their books
and papers all over the grass along with the other pony's stuff.
Luna and Clover sat up and gasped at the slate gray colored pony.
His mane was turquoise and his tail was spring green color.
"We're very sorry and so very late for school," Luna
The two girls grabbed their books and papers, then stuffed it
in their bags while the other pony gathered his stuff and put
it in his dark brown bag.
"It's alright," the pony replied smiling.
"Sorry we can't stay and help," Clover told him.
Just then the bell rang.
The girls gasped.
"Oh no. Clover hurry lets go!" Luna cried and began
running towards the school with Clover behind her.
The gray pony had gathered his stuff and then began checking
to see if he had every thing but then he noticed something was
"Where is it?" He muttered. He began walked around
the area and still there was nothing, "All that trouble
I went through to get it and it's gone," He exclaimed. Then
he paused, "One of those ponies must have it."
He turned and watched as they ran into the school.
After school Luna hurried home to drop her school bag off
then she quickly left and hurried to the ice cream shop. She
ran across the park and found Blizzard walking ahead of her.
She slowed down and walked next to him, "Hi!"
"Hi," Blizzard replied.
"Are you heading to the ice cream shop?" Luna asked.
"Yes I am."
Blizzard looked at her curiously, "Where's Blueberry?"
"Gone for practice," Luna replied.
Blizzard was glad Blueberry wasn't around. This was his chance
to be with her.
"Are you going to the shop for ice cream?" Blizzard
"Yes I am while I'm waiting for my friends," Luna replied.
"Would you mind if I sat with you?" Blizzard asked.
Luna looked at him surprisingly.
"Well since we're both going there. I don't see why not,"
Blizzard quickly explained.
Luna smiled at him, "Sure, I would love to have company
till my friends shows up." She still couldn't get over the
fact he had asked that question. Was her friends right about
him? Did he really like her more than just a friend? Luna shook
the thought out of her head.
"He's just being friendly," Luna thought. She glanced
at him and smiled, she was glad she had him for company.
They left the park and walked into the ice cream shop. They walked
to the counter and sat on the stools.
A golden pony with dark pink and red hair walked up to them from
behind the counter, "May I take your order?"
"vanilla cookie blizzard," Luna replied.
"Vanilla shake," Blizzard replied.
"Coming right up." The pony turned around and quickly
began making their orders. A few minutes later she handed their
order to them.
Luna took her long red spoon and scooped up a bit of ice cream
and ate it. Blizzard sipped on his shake and watched her enjoying
"Blizzard, have you tried a blizzard before?" Luna
"A few times. I was told they have a Blueberry blizzard
Luna laughed, "Are you serious? I'll have to try that sometime."
She looked at Blizzard and smiled as his icy blue eyes stared
"Lunarstar!" A familiar voice cried.
Luna turned and smiled, "Patch!"
Patch walked up to Luna and sat next to her on a stool. She was
carrying a rolled up newspaper, she was about to say something
when Melody and Sweetheart walked in, then Clover and Starlight.
Soon all of Luna's friends had walked in the shop and sat around
her and Blizzard.
"Did you see the newspaper?" Starlight asked excitedly.
"I brought one with me," Patch quickly said as she
unrolled the paper.
"What about it?" Luna asked curiously.
"Well, there's a Princess coming to town," Patch answered.
The word 'Princess' caught Blizzard's attention, he continued
sipping on his shake as he listened with great interest.
"A Princess?" Bon Bon asked.
"Yes, It's Princess Rosy. Remember her?" Starlight
"Who?" Luna asked. It was the first time she had heard
of the pony.
"She was our friend long before you moved here. She was
a lost Princess living at the orphanage. Her parents came to
find her. Every pony in town tried on the crown hoping they would
be the Princess but Patch match her description better than any
of us," Bright Eyes explained.
"I almost believed I was the Princess because I had red
paint on me that we thought was a birthmark," Patch added.
"And she was adopted," Sweetheart added.
"Oh, So she's a friend? But why is she coming here?"
"To find her missing jewel," Starlight answered.
Blizzard couldn't stand the wait any longer, he just had to read
the paper. He turned in his seat, "Let me see that paper."
The girls were surprised he even spoke to them. It wasn't to
often they heard him say something.
"Sure," Patch replied, then she handed the paper to
Blizzard who wasted no time reading it.
"Umm...What jewel?" Melody asked.
Patch and Starlight paused and thought about it.
"I can't remember," Starlight replied.
"I can't either. I don't think I read that far," Patch
"It's a sapphire," Blizzard answered as he continued
to explain, "The royal family is coming to Ponyland in search
for their family jewel which was stolen from their home. They
heard rumors that the sapphire was seen in Ponyland and they
have come to retrieve it."
"Stolen?" The girls asked.
"What's a sapphire?" Sweetheart asked.
"It's a blue crystal called a sapphire and they are very
valuable," Bright Eyes exclaimed.
Blizzard handed the paper back and got off his stool then he
began to walk away.
"Where are you going?" Starlight asked him.
"The Royal Family is arriving today. I want to see them,"
"Oh, lets all go and see them," Bon Bon suggested.
"Sound good to me," Starlight replied, "Lets go."
The girls got off their stools and followed Blizzard.
They walked together to the Hotel only to find a group of
ponies there. They squeezed through the ponies and managed to
get close to the front. Luna was between her friends so other
ponies wouldn't feel her invisible wings. Blizzard stood in front
watching as a carriage arrived. A dark purple pony with light
blue and orange hair stood by the carriage and opened the door.
A white pony with green sparkling hair walked out of the carriage
first then a yellow pony with pink hair, then a smaller pony
that looked like her mother only in lighter colors. They all
wore golden crowns with a large diamond on top of the red velvet
from the crown. The Princess wore a plain golden crown with red
jewels on it. As they walked ponies began to cheer. Luna quickly
left when she saw the cameras getting ready to flash. The royal
ponies walked through the crowed and into the inn.
"She didn't even see us," Melody exclaimed.
"There's so many ponies around and cameras all over the
place it's no wonder she didn't see us," Bright Eyes explained.
Sweetheart was the first to suddenly noticed Luna missing, "Where's
The girls looked around and couldn't find her. When the crowed
slowly began to leave the girls were able to find her. She stood
on the side of the Inn watching. The girls walked up to her worriedly.
"What's wrong?" Sweetheart asked.
"I forgot they would have cameras," Luna replied.
"Oh," The girls exclaimed as they remembered what Luna
had told them about her and cameras.
"Sorry, Lunarstar. I hope no one got a picture of you,"
"No, I left before they took the first shot," Luna
walked out from the side of the building, "But I did see
the royal family. I'm glad it's not like that back home."
"It's not?" Melody asked.
"You don't have a crowed of ponies all around you when you
walk out in public?" Patch asked.
"Not really. I have soldiers around me. The ponies in town
leave the streets when me or my family walks through," Luna
"Oh wow. I'd love to see that," Melody exclaimed.
Luna smiled, "Maybe I can get a picture of it sometime if
my parents let me."
"That'll be great," Patch replied.
Luna looked at the sky and noticed the sun was beginning to set,
"I have to go. I'll see you tomorrow!" She ran from
her friends and hurried home.
"I guess we all better get home," Bright Eyes suggested,
"Bye." Then she left the group. Slowly one by one they
all scattered and went home.
Clover walked through town with Sweetheart as they talked
about Luna and their friend Princess Rosy. Suddenly, they heard
a noise and turned to find a slate gray pony with turquoise and
spring green hair, he had bumped into a trash can from an alley.
"He should watch where he's going," Clover muttered
then they continued walking.
After awhile they split and continued home. Clover continued
to hear hoof steps, when she turned to see who it was the noise
stopped. When she saw no one she continued walking, this time
there was no noise. She ran home and quickly closed the door,
Then she a deep breath.
Later that night Clover was sound asleep on her bed when she
heard a slight noise in her room. She rolled over and quickly
fell asleep. A few minutes later she heard another noise, she
woke up and listened but there was nothing to hear. She was about
to go back to sleep when she heard it again. It sounded like
something fell on the floor. Clover slowly climbed out of bed
and walked to her door. She cracked the door opened and peeked
in the hall. She noticed her parents also peeked out their door.
They stood and listened, a minute later they heard another noise.
Clover's father left his room and walked to the livingroom. Clover's
mother was right behind him with Clover trailing behind.
"Hay!" her father cried startling the dark pony figure.
The pony quickly ran out the door with Clover's father right
behind him. The father stopped at the edge of his yard when he
couldn't see in the dark to follow him.
Clover's father turned and hurried inside the house just as Clover's
mother turned on the lights. To their shock, the room was a mess.
Everything was scattered on the floor. Drawers from under the
tables were opens, books were scattered on the floor, flowers
were taken from their vases and thrown to the floor. Clover's
parents walked around the house and found that every room was
like that even Clover's room.
"Oh what are we going to do?" Clover's mother cried
"We can check and see if anything is missing before calling
the police," The father replied.
