Midnight sighed. Twilight Sun was waiting for her. Midnight sniffed. Broken Heart is waving a goodbye to her mentor. Midnight tried but Broken did not care. Twilight Sun was calm. Her bookcase has jouarl. Midnighy had dersie to read her jouarl. But she had her own diary inside her bookcase. She asked," It is true if mentors and teachers can write in jounarl or diary... can students read it?" Twilight Sun shakess her head. She took out her jounarl in spell that you cannnot see her. So midnight strained to pratice that spell. But she looked at her teacher instead her mentor. Royal Guards in Crystal kingdom. Candince smiled warmly and little tired from war. Shining Armor was so frazzler. Princesees and Princes had meeting about invastion. So minight went out find somewhere private so she can wrute her entry. Twilight sparkle was teaching abot crystal but filles heard scrbiing nosie. Midnight finshed and she bumped to Twilight and was taken to Twilight Sun. She was kinda cross with her. Midnight started," I just wanted to write. But when Broken wrote somthing about me. Twilight Sparkle being harsh on me." Twilight Sun sighed and said," let go. We had enough. Let go. No dinner for you today. You get bread that all. Your puinshment is stay ur room to reflect what you had done. And diary will taken away." Midnight sat an egleant carriage. Broken planned dinner. Midnight was stting her bed," Lame pynishment." Nightmare moon caclked and took her over.
