Morning came and Blizzard woke up from his deep sleep. He
stood up and yawned. The morning sun was shining through the
window in the shack forcing him to wake up more.
"I have better go see father," Blizzard thought. He
walked to the corner of the shack, picked up his dark blue cloak
and put it on his back. He left the shack, yawning. The shadows
danced on his ice blue coat as the sun peaked through the tree
He walked to the cliff and stared at the sun rising above the
"Those soldiers will probably be at the gate too,"
Blizzard suddenly remembered.
He put his hood over his head, covering his face in darkness,
then he turned into a cluster of snowflakes and flew from the
He flew over the trees and landed in front of the Gate. He
bolted into a run and ran through the gate surprising the soldiers
on the other side. Before the soldiers could throw nets on him,
he turned into a cluster of snowflake and flew from the mountain.
He flew all morning till he saw Dream Castle in the distance.
Suddenly he remembered Teriney's words, 'I want something beside
your stupid excuses!'
Blizzard landed in the forest, returning to his pony form. He
was far from the castle but close to a village near. The village
was medium size with a row of houses, a sidewalk and a street
that stopped at the last house. A few of the houses had a fence
around their yards.
"I can't go home without some sort of proof," Blizzard
He stood and looked at the village as he thought of something
he could bring to Teriney. As he sat and thought, a couple of
birds flew around the trees chasing each other, one of the birds
dropped a feather. Blizzard watched as it landed next to him.
He reached with his hoof and picked it up.
"Of course. That's what I'll bring...now to find a white
pegasus," Blizzard thought. He dropped the feather and left
the forest. When he was close to the village, suddenly he remembered
what Teriney had told him. He was wanted in ever kingdom. Blizzard
turned into a cluster of snowflake and flew along the grass to
the closest yard. He flew through the cracks of the white fence
and appeared in his pony form behind the fence. He laid in the
grass watching ponies walking along the sidewalk some even played
ball in the street.
He looked across the street and noticed a white pegasus with
red, yellow, green and white hair watering her flowers in her
back yard. Blizzard turned into a cluster of snowflakes and flew
across the street unnoticed. He flew to the back yard and followed
the white pegasus to a patch of flowers. Blizzard returned to
his pony form and reached for her wings. He quickly plucked a
feather from her. The white pegasus yelled and turned just as
Blizzard blew ice in her face, then he turned into a cluster
of snowflakes and flew out of the house. The white pegasus rubbed
her cold icy face and looked around but he was gone.
"W-who or what was that?" the white pegasus thought.
She flapped her wings trying to shake the pain away, "And
why did they only want my feather?"
Blizzard flew from the village and hurried toward the mountains.
He flew fast over trees, lakes and other villages. When he flew
over Paradise Estate he knew he was close to home. A few mountains
away was Volcano of Gloom. He landed on the cliff, returning
to his pony form. He held the large white feather up, "Father
won't know the difference." he put the feather under his
cloak and began walking through the tunnel.
He left the dark tunnel and walked on the stone steps over the
lava. He hurried to the stone house and walked inside.
"I'm home!" Blizzard yelled.
"In here!" Teriney yelled.
Blizzard followed the voice to a wooden double door, to his surprise
it wasn't locked like it usually was. He opened the door to a
medium size room. Around the walls were bookcases filled with
old and dusty books. A torch sat on a tall stand lighting up
the room. It was the first time Blizzard had been in the room.
Teriney sat at a square table looking at an old book.
"I've returned," Blizzard muttered.
Teriney turned and looked at Blizzard with his golden cat like
eyes. He didn't say anything at first which worried Blizzard.
"I've been waiting for you," Teriney replied. He stood
up from his chair and walked towards Blizzard, "I heard
you were caught."
Blizzard stared at him worriedly wondering what Teriney was going
to do to him.
"Just what did I tell you about getting caught!" Teriney
"I-I-I uhhh," Blizzard stuttered trying to answer but
forgot what he was going to say.
"Did you tell King Sea Mist anything?!" Teriney yelled
angrily. Smoke began to blow from his nose. Blizzard stood against
the door in fear.
Suddenly Teriney blew fire at him. Blizzard dropped to the floor
to avoid the fire.
"I taught you how to use your powers and how to keep from
getting caught, how to sneak around unnoticed. Have you learned
nothing?!" Teriney yelled angrily.
Blizzard crawled against the wall covering his face with his
front legs, scared that Teriney will breath fire at him again.
"I have told you never to get yourself caught and you did
anyways. You went against my orders!" Teriney yelled angrily,
"You almost ruined everything."
"S-sorry. Soldiers surprised me at the gate," Blizzard
"King Sea Mist soldiers?" Teriney asked.
"Y-yes," Blizzard replied fearfully.
"No doubt it must be King Stardust's doing as well."
"I got here without them catching me," Blizzard muttered.
"So you did," Teriney replied, then he suddenly noticed
a white feather sticking out of Blizzard's cloak. Teriney grabbed
the feather and held it up, "Where did you get this?"
Blizzard took a peak and saw the feather in Teriney's hooves.
"That's Princess Luna's feather," Blizzard quickly
answered, "I chased her, trying to kill her but she escaped
leaving that feather behind." Blizzard hoped his lie would
save him from Teriney's fiery breath.
"Interesting," Teriney replied, "This is her feather?"
He looked at Blizzard angrily, "I said to bring her horn,
not her feather!"
"I-I tried," Blizzard fearfully replied.
Teriney dropped the feather and put a hoof on Blizzard's chest,
pinning him to the stony floor. Blizzard could feel his weight
on him. He never felt a pony so heavy before, it was almost crushing
him, "I had better not hear you've been captured again or
you'll be severely punished for it."
"No...Fa-Teriney. I've learned my lesson last time,"
"You have better not tell others about me or my name. I
don't want anyone knowing I'm here!" Teriney yelled angrily,
"I'll be furious if that happened."
"N..no," Blizzard whispered trying to breath, "I
Teriney took his hoof off, letting Blizzard stand and cough,
then took a deep breath.
"This is taken to long, Blizzard. You should have killed
Princess Luna by now," Teriney remarked. He turned and sat
back at the table.
"I can't help it. She's a flying unicorn and I haven't..."
Blizzard paused, almost blowing his big lie, "I haven't...seen
her much. She winks out and disappears for a long time. With
Skyview around, it's almost impossible to get to her."
"She could be a bit harder to kill than I thought. Stop
wasting time in the other world. Now get out!"
Blizzard turned and left the room. He ran down the hall and
outside. He hurried over the lava and ran through the tunnel,
collapsing on the cliff.
"That was close," Blizzard thought, "That feather
saved me." Blizzard breathed heavily till he caught his
breath, then he stood up, watching the sun set, "Why does
he want her dead? What did he mean by, 'You almost ruined everything'
"Ruined what?" Blizzard thought.
He could feel something wasn't right about his father and he
had no choice but to follow his orders. He turned into a cluster
of snowflake and flew back to the Gate.
