Royal Heart slept soundly after a tiring night from giving
birth. She wouldn't have woken up if it wasn't for the knock
on the door.
"Enter!" Stardust answered.
He was sitting on the bed next to Royal Heart holding the sleeping
baby in his arms.
A white unicorn maid entered the room and sat a bottle of milk
on the night stand next to the bed.
"Tell Luna I want to see her," Stardust told her.
The maid bowed, "Yes your majesty." then she turned
and left the room.
Royal Heart opened her eyes and watched him as she smiled. It
was several minutes before he saw her staring at him.
"I was going to let you sleep," Stardust told her smiling.
Royal heart smiled, "I would have missed this cute moment
Stardust looked at Silverstar and lightly stroked his mane, "I
couldn't help myself. I wanted to hold him before I leave."
Royal Heart yawned, she was still tired and didn't want to move
from her comfortable position.
"Just rest for the day. I'll have Luna help care for the
baby. After all she's going to have to learn how to care for
a baby someday, now is te perfect time," Stardust told her.
"I feel to tired to want to get up anyways," Royal
Heart told him, she giggled slightly, "This reminds me of
how you used to hold Luna in the mornings. I don't think you
ever put her down unless it was time for bed."
"I couldn't help it. She's my pretty baby girl and so cute
as a baby," Stardust looked at the baby in his arms, "And
now I have a baby boy."
"Stardust, what are we going to do for inheritance?"
Royal Heart asked as she suddenly remembered.
"We have plenty of time to think of something," Stardust
Luna suddenly walked in the room and was surprised to see
her father still in bed and he was holding her baby brother.
"Dad, you sent for me?" Luna asked.
Stardust stood up from the bed, "Yes, I want you to take
care for Silverstar and your mother." Stardust carefully
handed Luna the baby, "Now he will wake up soon, when he
does you feed him with that bottle. Your mother is to tired to
do it today. I got to be going." Stardust walked to the
table and brushed his hair then he put on his crown and quickly
left, "Bye, I'll check back later."
"Bye," Royal Heart muttered.
Luna sat on the bed and leaned on her father's pillow, "He
looks so different during the day."
Royal Heart smiled, "Yes he sure does. You have more light
to see him with."
Just then Silverstar's eye's opened. He smiled when he saw Luna
but his smile slowly faded away as he felt the hunger pain in
his stomach. Soon he began to cry, it started out soft and then
it got louder.
"Luna, the bottle," Royal Heart reminded her.
Luna looked on the night stand and saw the bottle full of milk.
She picked it up and held it to his mouth to begin feeding him.
Royal Heart smiled greatly but she found it was getting to hard
to keep her eyes open, "Luna, put him in his bed when he
falls asleep." Royal Heart closed her eyes and began sleeping
as she listened to the sounds of her baby feeding from the bottle.
Luna looked at Silverstar, she still found it hard to believe
he was her brother. She had always been an only child and now
she wasn't. She wondered what he would be like when he was older.
What abilities would he have? What kind of trouble would he get
into? Questions raced through her mind about her baby brother's
As she sat and watched him for an hour. It wasn't long till he
stopped drinking out of the bottle and closed his eyes, resting
peacefully against her white coat. Luna quietly sat the bottle
down and stood up from the bed with Silverstar in her arms. She
walked around the bed and sat him in the basinet. She put a blanket
over his small body and then she left. Luna saw her mother was
still asleep, she wasn't about to wake up anytime soon.
What was she going to do now? She went to the door of the balcony
and stood looking outside. The sun was shining and the wind was
blowing. The air had warmed up and spring had came. Luna loved
winter but it was nice to have spring return too.
Just then a servant walked into the room with a tray and sat
it on the table.
"Princess Luna, a letter came for you," The pegasus
pointed to the tray where a pink envelope sat.
"Thank you," Luna told her.
The servant bowed and left the room. Luna walked to the table
and quickly picked up the pink envelope. On the front was her
name and on the back was Charades name.
Luna smiled greatly. So much had happened that she completely
forgot about Charades. Luna sat down forgetting about how hungry
she was getting. She quickly opened the letter and saw his fancy
'Dear Princess Luna, I'm sorry I hadn't written in so long.
So much has happened since I left Dream Castle. I started a business
as a carpenter and I've gotten well known for my wood carvings.
I did meet my old girlfriend and we decided to get married. It
was only a few weeks ago that I got married. It has been wonderful,
I can't believe I would have missed this one in a life time chance
of having a family if I stayed as a soldier. Luna, it was well
worth leaving for. Well anyways, Things are going great for me
and my new wife, she's a Pegasus. I have told her amazing stories
about you, not to worry I didn't tell her about the gate or anything
like that. She is looking forward to meeting you someday. Well,
I got to be getting back to work. I hope to hear from you soon.
Your friend, Charades.'
Luna smiled greatly as a tear came out of her eye. She had
missed him greatly and wished he was with her. Luna saw a stack
of blank papers and a ink pen. She look the paper and began writing.
She wrote about the school, Star Cluster and when she had been
caught by Teriney. She wrote about the golden necklace that Blizzard
was forced to trade and how sad he was about it. She told him
about the new baby and his name. She told him everything that
had happened since he left. There was so much to write she had
to use another paper.
"There, now to put it in something," Luna whispered.
She looked around the table and found yellow envelopes by the
light yellow and golden edged papers. Luna folded her letter
and carefully placed it in the envelope.
"Now where do I send it?" Luna whispered, "hummm...Buster
Luna stood up and left the room. She quickly found a maid walking
by, "Can you send for Buster to come to my parent's room?"
"Yes, Princess Luna," the maid bowed and hurried down
Luna turned and walked to her mother's room. She sat at the table
and began eating her pan cakes. They were warm but not hot like
they usually was. She realized she should have eaten first but
at least they weren't cold. After Luna had finished her breakfast,
she head a knock. She stood up and went to the door. She opened
it and smiled, "Buster." he was wearing his silver
"I assume you got Charade's letter," Buster quickly
"You knew?" Luna asked.
"I got a letter along with yours," Buster answered,
"So I sent yours to you."
"Oh, well I wrote a letter and was wondering if you could
send it to him?" Luna asked.
"Of course. I'll be happy to," Buster answered.
Luna left Buster at the door and picked up her letter, then she
returned to the door, handing the letter to him. Buster took
"If I may ask, "how is your mother?" Buster asked.
"She's tired," Luna answered.
"We heard she had a baby. Was it a boy or girl?" Buster
"You don't know?" Luna asked.
"She had the baby last night. We soldiers haven't gotten
the news yet," Buster answered.
"Well, it was a boy. Dad named him Silverstar," Luna
"That's a nice name. I'm looking forward to seeing him.
I must return to my post. I'll see you later," Buster nodded
his head and left. Luna closed the door. He acted so polite towards
her, not like he used to act around her. Being second in command
had changed him, it gave him more responsibilities and Luna could
tell he was happy being second in command.
For the rest of the day, Luna watched and fed Silverstar till
Royal Heart was awake and could feed him herself. Luna noticed
he seemed to act differently when she held him. Luna could only
guess that Silverstar knew his mother by sight and touch.
Luna was sitting in bed next to her mother watching her baby
brother asleep in her arms, till she too fell fast asleep. Royal
Heart smiled seeing the two sound asleep.
