It was in the afternoon and Luna had felt better over night
and the hot bath had helped her sore shoulder and sides. All
she had was bruises on her sides from her wings. She was able
to stand and walk around as long as no one touched her sides.
Luna stood at a white dresser and was putting her hair up. Her
crown sat on the dresser in front of her along with her collar.
When she was done she placed her silver collar around her neck
and placed her crown on her head. She stood back and looked at
herself in the mirror, wavy long white strands of mane hung over
her wings and shoulder. Her diamond covered crown sparked in
the sunlight shining in the room from the balcony. Her tail had
strands of curls and the rest was just as wavy as her mane. As
she admired herself in the mirror she heard a knock at the door.
Luna opened the door and saw Blizzard standing there with a clean
coat and shinny hair wearing a golden color around his neck.
He just smiled at her. Luna smiled back and closed the door behind
her following him down the hall.
"Feeling well enough for the ball?" Blizzard asked
Luna smiled and giggled, "I'm fine. Trust me, I'm perfectly
able to go to the ball."
"Ok but I'll be with you if you want to return to your room,"
Luna leaned towards him and kissed him.
They walked down the stairs and down another hallway to tall
white doors. There was another set of doors just like it down
the same hall.
"The room must be big," Luna commented.
"Yes, it sure is," Blizzard replied, "Ready?"
Luna smiled, "Lets go."
Blizzard led her into the room and turned left down a set of
stairs and then right where a soldier in shinny spotless armor
stood with a pink pony.
Blizzard nodded at the pink male pony.
The pony cleared his throat, "Announcing Princess Luna
and her fiancee, Blizzard."
Stardust, Skyview, Starfire and Royal Heart turned and smiled
as they watch Luna and Blizzard approach them. Royal Heart was
with Stardust and his brothers talking to a group of royalties
Each was wearing a crown.
"She is so pretty, Stardust," King Fiddler commented.
Stardust smiled, "Yes she sure is."
Luna approached them and stood next to her mother.
"I see your walking around better," Stardust commented.
"Yes I am. I'm fine just bruised," Luna replied.
"Do you think you can walk home?" Royal Heart asked.
"Yes, I think I can," Luna answered.
"Luna, You met the kings well, meet their wives," Stardust
pointed to each Queen as he introduced them to her, "this
is Queen Songbird, Queen Windsor, Queen Pixi Wings and you know
They nodded their heads at Luna and Blizzard.
"Your two make a lovely couple," Queen Songbird commented,
she was a dark blue pegasus.
"It's an honor to meet you," Queen Pixi Wings replied,
she was a dark green pegasus.
"Yes it's an honor to meet you and I'm sorry to hear the...trouble
you had getting here," Queen Windsor replied, she was a
dark pink earth pony.
"Thank you. I'm feeling fine now," Luna lean towards
Blizzard, "Thanks to Blizzard."
Blizzard smiled but didn't say anything, he didn't know what
"Blizzard, we heard a lot about you. You're a very lucky
boy to be engaged to Princess Luna," Queen Pixi Wings commented.
"Thank you," Blizzard replied not smiling at them.
"Blizzard, why don't you talk to the Princes over there."
Royal Heart pointed, "I think it'll be good for you to get
to know them and make some friends."
"Ok," Blizzard replied and left leaving Luna behind.
He would rather stay with Luna but Royal Heart did insisted he
joined the boys by the drink table.
"Luna, the Princesses are at the table waiting for you,"
Royal Heart told her and pointed behind her.
Luna looked at saw many princesses with different hair styals,
some even wore a crown.
"Go on Luna, go talk to them. Make some friends," Royal
Heart urged her.
"Ok," Luna smiled and left.
"Does she have any friends?" King Wispy asked.
"Many friends, they just don't live close by so she rarly
sees them," Stardust explained.
"Stardust, how is the school doing?" King Fiddler asked
"It should be built and Amaryllis should be teaching by
now. I won't know how things are going till I return home. Don't
worry I'll send you all letters the minute I find out about the
school," Stardust replied.
Queen Windsor giggled, "Wispy is just dying to start a school.
It's all he talked about since he got back from Ponyland."
The group laughed.
"I can't help it, the school is a great idea and I'm dying
to try it in my kingdom," King Wispy replied.
"I think it'll work wonderfully for all our kingdoms,"
King Birming commented.
"Stardust, if you don't mind me asking," King Sunrise
began to say, "Who is running Dream Castle while your here?"
"Well, it's not Star Cluster, he refuses to rule a kingdom
now or ever, so I had mom and dad watch the kingdom for me,"
"I can't beleive what my husband told me about Star Cluster,"
Queen Songbird remarked, "Has he really changed?"
"Yes he most curtainly has," Stardust replied.
"I was angry with him and even I didn't beleive he changed
but now...I see he has and he's very sorry for what he's done.
In fact he wouldn't even come with us to the ball knowing how
everyone felt about him," Royal Heart added.
"I'm sorry but It was probably wise if he didn't but of
course he is welcome to come since he is part of your family,"
Queen Starling replied.
"Maybe one of these days I'll drag him to one," Stardust
As they talked King Sea Mist and Queen Snowfall arrived. They
were quickly annouced to everyone as they walked down the steps.
King Sea Mist immeaditly noticed Stardust and Royal Heart with
a group of Royal ponies. As they approched them, the kings nodded.
"It's good of you to come," King Birming said.
"I'm glad we could come," King Sea Mist replied.
"Snowfall, where's Snowmist?" Royal Heart asked noticing
her baby boy wasn't with her.
"He's at home being well taken care of. He's far to young
to be traveling and I wanted to be here so badly," Snowfall
"So did Royal Heart. In her condiction, I didn't want her
to come but she was very presistant," Stardust told her.
"I'm fine and perfectly able to walk," Royal Heart
"Royal Heart, how is your baby doing?" Snowfall asked
Royol Heart lifted her wings from her sides, "the baby is
growing just fine."
The group looked at her and smiled.
"You can see it," King Sunrise muttered.
"Stardust, your must be very proud," King Wispy commented.
"Yes I am," Stardust replied smiling looking at Royal
Heat as she laid her wings back down on her sides.
Royal Heart glared at him, "He's just been a bit to protective."
The group laughed.
"Royal Heart, every father is like that," King Fiddler
"I know," Royal Heart replied nuzzling Stardust's neck.
Stardust smiled happily at her.
"Well, we have a surprise," King Sea Mist suddenly
"A surprise?" another queen asked.
"I'm Pregnant," Snowfall announced.
"Another one?" King fiddler asked.
"Yes, Princess Luna thought awhile back that Snowmist may
want another playmate and I just couldn't stop with just one,"
Snowfall explained smiling.
"Well, congratulations," Royal Heart exclaimed.
"Yes, congratulations," King Sunrise agreed and soon
everyone joined in and congratulated her.
"You know, Royal Heart's baby could marry Snowfall's baby
or Royal Heart's Baby could marry Snowmist or..." Starfire
paused as he noticed the group staring surprisingly at him, "Well,
it was a thought I just had.
"Starfire, that's a wonderful idea," Snowfall exclaimed.
Skyview glared at him, "Yes, another wonderful idea."
Starfire just stood and smiled at him which didn't make Skyview
"Lets just wait till they're born first," Stardust
quickly said before everyone started making plans.
"Oh, that reminds me. King Fiddler, I recall a soldier in
your army that was a twinkle eyed pony," Queen Starling
"Yes, that's right," King Fiddler replied.
"You didn't happen to bring him with you did you?"
Queen Starling asked.
"Yes, I did. Why do you ask?" King fiddler asked.
"Princess Luna has never seen a twinkle eyed pony till yesterday
and she wanted to see a male twinkle eye pony," Queen Starling
King Fiddler smiled, "Just ask one of my soldiers, I'm sure
they can find him for you."
"Thank you," Queen Starling replied and left the group.
She walked to the table Luna was sitting at and told her about
the soldier then she took Luna out of the room.
Blizzard stood on the other side of the room watching and
wondering where Luna was going.
"Blizzard," Prince Skybloom, "You haven't even
Blizzard looked at him, "Sorry."
"Just how is it that you were able to be engaged with Princess
Luna?" another prince asked.
"Your not even a Prince," A white pony Prince asked.
"You'll have to ask Stardust," Blizzard answered
"I hope you don't mind me asking but I heard you have some
sort of ability like the Royal family has. Is that true?"
a yellow pony Prince asked.
"Yes," Blizzard flatly answered.
"What can you do?" Prince skybloom asked, "Run
fast or disappear or something?"
"I can freeze you. Turn you to a solid block of Ice or cause
a snow storm," Blizzard answered.
"Really?" they asked him curiously.
"Turn this glass to ice," another prince said handing
him a glass of water.
"I'd have to blow on it," Blizzard replied taking the
"Can't you simply touch it and turn it to ice?" another
"No...well, I can sort of. I just don't know how,"
"Your kidding," Prince Skybloom exclaimed.
Blizzard glared at him, "I don't kid about anything."
"Sorry," Prince Skybloom replied, he looked at the
other Princes around him, "Well, I heard my parents had
already picked a fiancee for me. I just wished I knew who it
"Mine is the purple unicorn," another prince commented
pointed to the table Luna sat at.
As they talked, Blizzard thought about his icy ability as
he stared at the glass he held in his hooves. No mater how hard
he concentrated it wouldn't turn to ice. He remembered the times
he was mad or was a sleep and turned things to ice. How did he
do it? Was he concentrating then? Blizzard shook his head, that
couldn't have been it. He remembered what Amaryllis had once
told him, 'You done it and you can do it again.' Was she right?
It was then that he remembered what Skyview had told him, something
he didn't understand till now, 'I'm sure you can do it if you
really wanted to.'
Was it really that simple? He thought about how he turned to
snow or blew cold air. He had simply did it. It was like walking,
he didn't think about it, he just did it.
Blizzard looked at the glass and suddenly ice began to form on
the glass. The Princes immediately became quiet and watched with
Skyview and a few of the Kings noticed. Stardust turned to
see what was so fascinating and saw the glass had turned to ice.
Stardust was worried wondering if Blizzard lost control of his
ability. He turned and approached Blizzard, "You turned
that glass to ice on purpose?"
Blizzard looked up at him, "Yes and I think I find know
how to do it too. It was simple, all I had to do is do it."
Stardust smiled, he was relieved that Blizzard had learned how
to turn something to ice by touching it.
"Where's Luna?" Blizzard asked.
"Outside with Queen Starling," Stardust answered.
"Thanks," Blizzard replied, he handed his glass to
one of the Princes, then he turned and left.
"Umm, King Stardust. If you don't mind me asking, if he's
not a Prince then how can he marry a Princess?" Prince Skybloom
"The law is made by the King and the King can change them.
My daughter loves him and she's very happy with him. That's all
that maters to me. That's all I really want for her...to be happy.
Now if you excuse me," Stardust turned and left the Princes
to think about what Stardust had said.
Blizzard left the room, he couldn't stand another minute with
a group of ponies that was only going to ask him a bunch of questions.
He walked down the hall and out the door. At the bottom of the
steps was Luna, Queen Sterling and a white pony soldier with
yellow twinkled eyes.
Luna turned and smiled when she saw Blizzard. When ever Blizzard
saw her smiled he couldn't help but smile back and forget his
"I want you to meet someone," Luna told him.
Blizzard approached them and the three of them spent the evening
talking together. Blizzard was glad to be with Luna and outside
as the sun began to set.
