Luna had remained silent during dinner while Skyview and Starfire
talked about Star Cluster and his new life. After breakfast Luna
roamed the halls alone. It didn't feel the same when Blizzard
was with her, even when he was in a quiet mood. She continued
to peak next to her knowing he wasn't there. She climbed the
stairs to the fourth floor and walked around, then she climbed
the stairs higher into the castle. She roam the long hallway
that had long glass windows. At the end of the hallway she reached
a thick wooden door. She opened it and walked outside on the
long balcony. It stretched to the other end of the castle. The
railing was one solid wall. Luna stood looking in the distance
as the wind blew her wavy mane. Her crown stayed sturdy on her
She thought about Blizzard and wondered where he was. What
was he doing? Had he found Teriney yet? So many questions raced
through her mind that she didn't notice her father approaching
"Luna," Stardust called to her.
Luna was startled at the sound of a voice, she looked up at him
surprisingly, she had not expected to see him till tomorrow morning.
"Luna, I wanted to talk to you," Stardust said.
Luna looked away and stared at Dream Valley. She didn't want
to talk, she just wanted to be left alone.
"I'm sorry I got mad," Stardust apologized.
"Blizzard left to get his necklace. It was important to
him," Luna told him not looking at him.
"I know that now but you should have told me sooner,"
"You were mad at the time...most of the time in fact,"
Luna looked at him sadly.
Stardust took his crown off and sat it on the ground, then he
nuzzled Luna's cheeks, "I'm sorry Luna." He stood back
and looked at her sadly, "I was very concerned for Blizzard
and this Kingdom," Stardust looked in the distance, "Look
as far as you can see. This is all Ponyland. Someday Blizzard
will rule it all. I have plans for this Kingdoms, plans that
I hoped Blizzard would someday continue. I was worried about
him. I had no idea where he went, why he left or if he was ever
coming back. He simply got up and left without a word."
Luna looked at the ground sadly, "I'm sorry dad, that necklace
could be very important. I...couldn't get him to change his mind.
He said he was just going to take the necklace back, that's it
and that Teriney wouldn't know he was there."
"Luna, Teriney is a dragon, a very old and smart dragon.
He raised Blizzard, he knows him. I wouldn't be surprised if
Teriney is expecting Blizzard to go after him," Stardust
told her, "Did he tell you anything else?"
Luna stared at the ground. Stardust nuzzled her to assure
her he's not mad.
"Blizzard told me other reasons why he's going after the
necklace," Luna looked up at her father again, "When
Teriney had let me go and was holding Blizzard's necklace he
said 'now for the others' then he flew off heading north which
is where Blizzard is going. Blizzard thought there could be more
than one necklace. Remember when you meet Teriney for the first
time at the volcano? He said he was after something better than
the Pearl. The Pearl can give you anything you want and yet he
only wanted Blizzard's necklace. He searched for centuries for
the necklace and even killed Blizzard's parents for it. Blizzard
thinks that Teriney knows something about the key, something
non of us knows about." Luna didn't tell him about the other
key that was found, she knew Skyview and Starfire wanted to tell
Stardust stared silently in the distance as the sun set. He was
trouble and pondered on what she had said.
"I remember Teriney saying those words. Blizzard could very
well be right," Stardust looked at Luna, "I should
had realized it sooner." He stood on his hind legs and hugged
her, "Lets go see your mother and Silverstar."
"What about Blizzard?" Luna asked.
"Don't worry Luna, I'll think of something. Maybe I'll send
someone to help him search for Teriney. It's late, Luna. The
sun is almost gone. We'll talk about it tomorrow," Stardust
answered. He picked up his crown and placed it on his head.
"Can...we go after him?" Luna asked hopefully.
"I don't know Luna. What you had told me is very troublesome.
I must talk about it to Skyview and Starfire tomorrow. I'll let
you know what I have decided," Stardust answered, then he
turned and smiled at her, "Stop worrying for tonight. Lets
go see the new baby. Your mother should be feeding him now."
Luna smiled and followed him into the castle.
