Royal Heart was laying in bed as she watched Stardust sleeping.
It was morning and she had woken up early. She was warm laying
next to Stardust's warm black coat not wanting to get out of
bed. She looked outside and saw the light as the sun was just
over the horizon. She yawned and climbed out of bed, then she
went to her dresser and took her brush. She stood looking at
the mirror brushing her hair and curling it, then she sat her
hair up on her head. She turned around to get her crown when
she noticed Stardust was awake and was watching her with a smile
on his face.
"What?" Royal Heart asked. Seeing him smile in bed
for no reason was unusual.
Stardust climbed out of bed, "I just happen to notice your
stomach while you were doing your hair."
Royal Heart looked at her stomach and smiled, "Well the
baby didn't just grow over night. I'm surprised you didn't notice
Stardust approached her and nuzzled her, "I guess I've been
a bit busy." Then he rubbed the side of her stomach. Royal
heart laughed, "What are you doing?"
"Just saying good morning to the baby," Stardust replied.
Royal Heart laughed, "Well we should be going downstairs."
Stardust turned and picked up his crown, then he carefully sat
it on his head, "I can help you with yours,"
"No, I'm perfectly capable of doing it myself. I have been
for years now and I haven't had any trouble doing it," Royal
Heart annoyingly answered.
"Stardust, don't help me with anything," Royal Heart
"I can't help it," Stardust told her smiling.
Royal Heart put her crown on and kissed Stardust, "I know."
They left their room and walked to the stairs where Blizzard,
Starfire and Skyview stood waiting. Luna was just approaching
Royal Heart smiled at her then she followed Stardust down the
"You might want to be careful walking the steps," Stardust
"Stardust, please. I'm fine. I'm not going to fall and hurt
myself. Stop being such a fussy daddy," Royal Heart told
Skyview and Starfire couldn't help but laughed.
They walked down the steps and down a long hallway till they
reached the dinning room. They entered the room and quickly took
their seats. Star Cluster, Amaryllis and Peaches was a few minutes
behind them. Once they were all seated, the servants walked in
and sat the trays and drinks down, then they left.
Stardust began eating trying to think about what he has to do
today but he couldn't stop glancing at Royal Heart and her plate.
"You should try and eat a little more," Stardust commented.
Royal Heart gave him an annoying look, "I eat just fine,
Stardust. Shouldn't you think about what your going to do today?"
Luna watched her parents with fascination. What has gotten into
her father? As she sat listening to Stardust give the order for
today, she glanced at her mother, she didn't see anything special
other being a little fat.
Royal Heart smiled at her, "Are you going to eat?"
Luna smiled and continued eating.
After breakfast, Royal Heart took Luna to the meeting room.
They sat on the couch and began Luna's studies. As her mother
taught, Luna continued to look at her curiously.
Royal Heart stopped and sighed, "What is it Luna? You've
been staring strangely at me."
"Well, I don't see why dad is being so...Umm," Luna
couldn't think of the right word to describe Stardust's unusual
Royal Heart smiled, "Fussy?"
"Yes," Luna replied.
"He's just a concerned father, he'll get worse the bigger
I get, just wait and see. He was pretty bad when I carried you.
Now lets finish your lesson before I have to run to the kitchen,"
Royal Heart replied.
Luna giggled and went back to studying.
When dinner came, Luna was in the dinning room at the table
glancing at Blizzard who finally noticed that she was looking.
He smiled which made Luna smile back.
The servants walked in setting plates, bowels and drinks on the
table. As everyone began eating, Star Cluster watched Luna, she
stared at her plate sadly glancing at Blizzard every now and
then but she never said a word. Starfire noticed Star Cluster
staring and looked to see what he was looking at, the Skyview
noticed Star Cluster and Starfire, the he too looked.
"We should say something," Starfire whispered.
"No," Skyview answered in a whispering voice
"Not yet anyways," Star Cluster answered whispering,
"This isn't a good time to say something."
"It'll have to be soon. I can't stand to watch," Starfire
Stardust sighed, "Just what are you two whispering about?"
"Nothing," the three of them answered.
"That doesn't sound like nothing," Stardust remarked.
"We'll, tell you later," Skyview told him.
Luna looked at them suspiously wondering what they were up to.
The three of them smiled at her which made Amaryllis giggle.
"What?" Star Cluster asked.
"Oh, just now. I found it finny, that's all," Amaryllis
Star Cluster continued eating while watching Luna, it took him
a few minutes to realize Blizzard was looking at her suspiously.
Did he know? did he suspect Luna's problem?
