Blizzard was sleeping peacefully in the yellow cloth. He could
feel the heat from Skyview's body next to him. Blizzard opened
his eyes and saw some light. It was hard to tell what time of
day it was now that the sun reminded hidden behind the clouds.
Blizzard knew they may not even see the sun till they return
to Ponyland and yet he felt at home here in the snowy north.
Stardust woke up and shook everyone awake, "Wake up!"
Starfire yawned and tried to stretch but end up kicking Skyview.
"Watch your big feet!" Skyview exclaimed.
"Sorry grouch," Starfire replied.
"You are the reason why I'm such a grouch," skyview
Starfire smiled, "So you finally admit you're a grouch."
Skyview glared angrily at Starfire.
"Ok, stop it you two. Lets eat and be on our way,"
Stardust told them. He took out the food from his yellow bag
and past them around. They sat quietly and ate.
When they were done, Stardust unzipped the yellow cloth and
stood outside in the snow. Blizzard was next to step outside,
then Luna, Starfire and Skyview. Starfire folded the yellow cloth
and packed it in Stardust's bag.
They had been traveling for a few days since they last saw Teriney.
It had been snowing most of the time. The snow covering the ground
reached to their knees at times and other times it wasn't possible
to walk through.
Blizzard followed Stardust as he watched Luna hugging his side
again. He knew Luna was cold and he was sure she wished she was
back home where it was warmer. He too felt cold, his legs felt
They walked for hours as Blizzard watched Luna trip in the
snow. She fell face down in the snow several times. He wondered
if she was simply getting tired of walking or she had trouble
walking through deep snow.
"Luna are you alright?" Stardust asked worriedly aft
she fell for the fifth time.
"I'm cold, tired and hungry," Luna replied feeling
miserable from the cold.
Stardust nuzzled her cold face, "I'm sorry Luna. Just a
little bit further, then we can rest."
Luna reluctantly followed him through the deep snow.
Blizzard approached her from behind and nuzzled her face. There
wasn't anything he could say that would make her feel better
but at lest he could let her know he was there for her.
Luna looked at him and smiled.
The wind began to blow slightly stinging their faces. The
snow dust wavered along the ground. Blizzard was starting to
feel colder. He looked around at the hills covered in snow and
snowy mountains in the distance. It had been awhile since they
saw a tree, rock or bush. There was nothing but snow and hills
everywhere he looked. It was quiet except for the wind blowing
every now and then.
Blizzard thought about what Teriney had said a year ago. He said
it was during a bad blizzard when he found the tents. He had
set them on fire killing everyone inside but Blizzard wasn't
touched by the fire. He had somehow made his body cold.
As he walked he began to wonder if the fire couldn't touch his
cold body, would the cold snow touch his body as well? Would
he still feel the cold? How could he make his body cold? He was
little at the time, how did he do it? Blizzard pondered on it
and soon he forgot how cold his legs were feeling. He remembered
turning the glass at the Ball to ice, he remembered he wanted
to do it and it happened. Could he do the same thing? He thought
about his cold body and how cold the snow felt. He thought about
wanting his body cold like when he was little during the tent
fire. His legs soon felt numb or at lest he thought they were.
He could no longer feel the cold snow. His body soon felt warm
on the inside.
"Blizzard!" Starfire exclaimed surprisingly.
Everyone stopped and looked at him.
"What?" Blizzard asked worriedly.
"You're..smoking," Starfire replied.
"I'm what?" Blizzard asked worriedly.
"It more like steam, Starfire," Skyview pointed out.
Blizzard looked at his legs and body and saw steam raising from
"I did it," Blizzard replied smiling.
"Did what?" Starfire asked.
"Are you alright?" Luna asked worriedly and yet curious
about the steam coming from his body.
"I feel fine, actually," Blizzard replied, "I
remember Teriney saying that the tent fire didn't touch me and
that I was too cold to touch. So I thought I'd try it again and...it
worked. I don't feel cold now."
Luna approached him and touched his steaming coat. She quickly
pulled her hoof away and shivered, "Oh...you're so cold!"
"Really?" Blizzard asked curiously.
Skyview approached him and looked closely at his coat, "How
interesting. Your body even looks cold as ice and yet you feel
fine. I wonder if you had insulated the warmth in your body and
yet your outer body made some kind of shield to hold the heat."
"That's quite interesting," Stardust muttered, "It's
probably best not to try and touch Blizzard when he's like that.
I don't want to be braking ice if he accidently touches us."
Stardust looked at Luna's hoof which had a little bit of ice
"I see your point," Starfire muttered looking at Luna's
"I'm sorry Luna," Blizzard told her.
"It's alright, Blizzard," Luna smiled, "Just be
very careful when your like that."
Blizzard smiled at her, "Believe me I will. "
"Well, now that we stopped lets rest and eat," Stardust
proposed, "Skyview could you make a blanket for us to sit
"Sure," Skyview replied. His horn began to glow. A
cloud appeared flattening itself. Stardust was the first to step
on it then everyone else followed. They sat on the cloud waiting
for Stardust to take out the food. Blizzard dropped the icy shell
on his body and soon he felt the cold wind stinging his face
and legs. He only dropped the icy shell long enough to finish
Once they were done, they continued on their journey through
the deep snow.
