The sun was just starting to rise and Blizzard was sound asleep
dreaming. He dreamt of Lunarstar and being with her, making her
laugh and nuzzling her cheeks. Then suddenly fire rose everywhere.
In the center was him as a baby pony sitting in the snow crying
and wearing his golden necklace that looked to big on him. Fire
waved wildly all around him, sparks flew and crackled. He could
do nothing but cry. The heat of the fire didn't touch him, the
ground was burnt except for the ground he sat on. He cried loudly,
then suddenly Blizzard woke up from his dream. He was relieved
it was just a dream and yet puzzled as to why he was having that
dream again. He sat up and rubbed his face trying to wake up.
Then he noticed his hooves were very cold. He looked at his bed
and saw it was completely ice. He stood up and sighed, "Not
again. It'll take all day to melt. I can't let this continue
He turned and walked to the corner. He sat down and took the
white cloth and wrapped his feet. Then he stood up and left the
shack. He remembered what Raspberry had told him the other day.
Today he was determine to find out what love is.
He left his shack and walked through the thick forest. He
came to the houses and walked past them as he pondered on who
to ask. He didn't want to ask Raspberry, she annoyed him to much.
He certainly wasn't going to ask Blueberry or any of his friends.
He couldn't ask the teacher, there was no school today. He wasn't
going to ask Lunarstar's friends he didn't know them nor did
he trust them. He entered the park and walked through it.
"There's only one pony I can ask," Blizzard thought.
He left the park, walked across the street and entered the ice
cream shop. He stopped suddenly, "Lunarstar."
At the counter was Lunarstar sitting on a stool and sipping the
last bit of her shake.
He took a deep breath and walked up to her. He sat on a stool
next to her, feeling a bit nervous.
Lunarstar looked at him and smiled, "I hardly get to talk
to you. I missed talking to you."
"You have?" Blizzard asked.
"Yes, I have," Lunarstar replied.
"Can I ask you something?" Blizzard nervously asked.
Just then Lunarstar's friend hurried inside and gathered around
her. Lunarstar was to occupied to notice Blizzard leaving.
He stopped at the door and looked at her.
"Her friends sure has perfect timing. They couldn't wait
a few minutes longer," Blizzard thought. Then he turned
and left. He walked back to the park and sat under a tree where
he can watch if Lunarstar runs by.
The sun was setting soon and Blizzard was beginning to think
he missed her when suddenly, she ran past him.
"Lunarstar!" Blizzard cried standing up but she was
to far to hear him.
He turned into a cluster of snowflakes and flew through the air,
over Lunarstar and a few yards. He landed on Lunarstar's street
just around the corner and returned to his pony form.
"She can't possibly miss me here," Blizzard thought.
It was several minutes till Lunarstar came running around the
corner and almost bumping into him. She looked up at him surprisingly,
"Umm..hi. What are you doing here?"
"I wanted to talk to you," Blizzard replied.
Lunarstar smiled at him, well you can walk me home then."
"Ok," Blizzard replied. He turned around and walked
next to Lunarstar silently, thinking about how to ask her.
"Well?" Lunarstar asked, "I thought you wanted
"Yes, I umm. I want to ask you something," Blizzard
"Ok, ask away," Lunarstar smiled at him.
"Umm...what is...love?" Blizzard nervously asked.
Lunarstar stopped suddenly and looked at him surprisingly, "Are
you joking? You don't know?"
"No I don't," Blizzard replied.
"I thought everyone knew. It's just so obvious," Lunarstar
"I don't have a clue what it is. Please tell me. What is
love?" Blizzard asked again.
Lunarstar continued walking with Blizzard at her side staring
at the ground, "It's umm...well. It's kind of hard to explain.
Doesn't your father love you?"
"How would I know?" Blizzard asked, "I don't know
what love is."
"Oh," Lunarstar replied, "It's umm. It's not something
you can't catch like a cold. It's something you feel for someone
else. It's when your always thinking about them. Wanting to be
with them. It's being more than a best friend....then you find
yourself in love. It's also an action word, something you do
to show you love that special someone."
Lunarstar stopped at her house and turned to face Blizzard, "you
"Yes I understand perfectly," Blizzard replied.
"May I ask why you wanted to know?" Lunarstar curiously
Blizzard stared at the ground blushing and making Luna smile
"Because I...I love you," Blizzard finally said, then
he turned and ran.
Lunarstar looked at him surprisingly, she couldn't believe what
she heard. She turned from Blizzard and stared at the ground,
"So do I, Blizzard." Then she continued into the house.
