It was morning and Luna was sound asleep till she felt someone
continually shacking her. She moved a bit hoping they would stop.
"Get up!" a voice cried.
Luna opened her eyes and saw Skyview beside her bed.
"Why do you have to sleep like Starfire. He's bad enough
to get up. now hurry and don't be late for breakfast," Skyview
told her and left the room. Luna laid her head down for a few
more minutes, that's all she wanted.
"Luna!" Skyview called to her.
Luna jumped out of bed, "Alright. I'm up!"
Luna got out of bed and walked to her dresser. She stopped and
glared at Skyview peaking through the door, "I have to fix
my hair first."
"You should get up early and do that," Skyview told
her. Then he closed the door.
"I'm always getting up early," Luna complained. She
didn't like getting up early before the birds, "And I thought
getting up for school was early."
Skyview meet up with Starfire in the hall and the two went
"Is she coming?" Starfire asked.
"When she's done with her hair," Skyview replied.
They hurried down stairs and to another hallway toward the soldiers.
They walked inside and saw Stardust, Royal Heart and Blizzard
"Where is Luna?" Stardust asked.
"She's doing her hair," Skyview answered.
Stardust sighed. As Star Cluster, Amaryllis and Peaches walked
in skyview and Starfire sat down. They waited for a few minutes
till Luna winked to the dinning room.
"I ummm, sorry. I didn't mean to over sleep," Luna
"You should get up early and be ready to come to breakfast
with everyone," Stardust told her.
"Yes dad," Luna replied sadly and walked around the
table to sit next to her mother.
The servants walked in and sat the trays on the table, then another
set of servants walked in with drinks, then they left. As they
eat, Stardust gave orders as to what he wants done around the
castle. Luna looked at Blizzard who was to busy watching Stardust
to see looking his way. Luna sighed, she hardly said anything
to Blizzard since her sixteenth birthday. She looked at Blizzard
and decided she would try and get a chance to talk to him.
"So you two know what to do?" Stardust asked.
"Yes," Skyview and Starfire replied.
"isn't there someone who takes care of that?" Blizzard
"Take care of what?" Luna asked.
"Luna weren't you listening at all?" Stardust asked
Luna sighed sadly, "I'm sorry. I had something on my mind."
"It's important to listen. I was telling Skyview and Starfire
about the trouble makers I've been hearing about and I want them
brought before me. Now to answer Blizzard's question...no, This
is my land and I'll take care of who brakes my laws. I have plenty
of room in the dungeon for them," Stardust answered.
"I never seen the dungeon," Luna replied.
"And you don't need to either. It's not a place you want
to be," Stardust told her.
"Where is the dungeon?" Luna asked curiously.
"I'm not saying. knowing you, your would sneak down there
and check it out," Stardust looked at her with a serious
face, "I have better not find out you've been down there."
"I haven't seen it either, Luna," Royal Heart told
Luna looked at her and smiled. Maybe the dungeon wasn't a place
to see and beside what could be down there to see anyways.
After breakfast Royal Heart and Luna headed to the meeting
room to continued teaching Luna. Royal Heart Led Luna into the
room and sat at the couch. on the table in front of them was
Luna's books and papers that she had previously left.
"Alright Luna, lets do your spelling," Royal Heart
Stardust and Blizzard went to the throne room while Starfire,
Skyview and Star Cluster went to their daily jobs. Amaryllis
and Peaches left the castle to go to town.
Stardust sat on his throne while Blizzard stood in front of him.
"Now, tell me all that you have learned about the six kingdoms,"
Stardust told him.
While Blizzard spent sometime telling him about the six kingdoms,
Luna had finished her spelling and was doing math. Math was one
subject that board her in school but her mother made it interesting
for her which helped Luna. When she had finished math, she was
ready for another subject to work on when her mother stood up
suddenly, "I'll be back. I'm feeling hungry."
"Your always hungry," Luna pointed out.
Royal Heart laughed and smiled at her, "I can't help it
Luna. I'm eating for two." Then she left the room.
Luna stood up and went to the door and watched her walk down
the hall. When her mother had turned the corner, Luna turned
around and was about to go back into the room when she saw Blizzard
going down another hallway.
Luna instantly winked out and appeared in front of a startled
"Blizzard, we hardly say anything to each other now,"
Luna began to say.
"I'm sorry Luna,' Blizzard replied.
"I got a few minutes to talk now," Luna told him.
"I'm sorry but I don't. I got to get Skyview and Starfire.
Stardust is expecting me to return. Perhaps I'll talk to you
later when I have sometime," Blizzard replied. Then he smiled
and kissed her and left.
Luna looked at him sadly. Then she too left and walk back to
the room just in time to meet her mother who was carrying a bowel
"Where did you go?" Royal Heart asked.
"To talk to Blizzard," Luna answered.
"Luna, he's to busy to talk now and so are you. Now lets
finish your lessons," Royal Heart told her.
When it was time for dinner, Luna and Royal Heart left the room
and went to the dinning room. Starfire and Skyview hurried inside
after Royal Heart. Star Cluster, Amaryllis and Peaches went into
the room after his brothers. Stardust and Blizzard was already
waiting at the table.
As soon as everyone sat down, the servants brought in their dinners,
rolls and drinks. Luna felt like it was a Christmas dinner every
night. The table had a lot of hot pots and bowels. It was enough
food for everyone. It was also during that time, Stardust would
give an update to what had went on today but Luna didn't pay
attention. All she thought about was what Blizzard and her mother
had told her. She looked around the table and realized how much
she missed spending time with everyone like she used to before
her 16th birthday.
"So it was hard to decide who was at fault," Stardust
"So who was at fault then?" Starfire asked.
"The white pony. He's sitting in the dungeon now and will
be there for two weeks," Stardust answered.
"Umm, dad?" Luna suddenly said.
"Yes Luna," Stardust replied.
"Are you going to be busy after dinner?" Luna asked.
"Yes, I have a few ponies I'll be busy with," Stardust
"How about tomorrow?" Luna asked.
"Luna, I got a job to do running this kingdom. I'm always
going to be busy and besides you have your lessons to do as well,"
Stardust told her.
"Oh," Luna replied, "Well how about Blizzard?"
"He's got his lessons to do, just like you do," Stardust
Luna kept silent staring at her plate. She realized her father
was just to busy for her and Blizzard would never have time for
her. The thought saddened her as she remembered the good times
she had with her father and uncles.
After her dinner, she and her mother finished her lessons
and then it was time for bed. Luna went to her room and took
off her crown and collar, then she put her hair down. She paused
looking sadly at herself in the mirror as she thought about today
and how everyone was just to busy. She went to her bed and sat
down. She picked up a picture of her friends and adopted parents.
She thought about the time she spent with them, none of them
ever told her they were to busy to be bothered by her. Luna's
eyes began to water as she thought about how much she missed
everyone. Tears started to stream down her cheek. She wiped her
tears away and sat the picture on her night stand.
Just then she heard the door open, Luna gasped hoping who ever
it was wouldn't come into her room. Luna didn't dare look fearing
the pony could see her tears.
"Luna, Goodnight," Skyview muttered.
"Goodnight," Starfire and Star Cluster added.
"Luna?" Starfire asked suspiously.
"Goodnight," Luna answered.
"Are you ok?" Skyview asked.
"I'm....fine. I'm just tired," Luna answered.
Star Cluster stared at her back wondering why she didn't turn
around and look at them.
"Goodnight," Skyview said again and then closed the
Luna laid in her bed trying her best not to think of today.
After the castle got quiet, Luna found herself fast asleep.
