    Sparkles in the sky- chapter two: the Dust

    ((Narrated by Lightning Dust)) When I haw my sister exiting the room, I shook my head. The sky was still dark. I exited the room and went to the kitchen, where i made breakfast. A few minutes later, i saw Rainbow Dash in the yard, waiting. Sparklework left, and I was singing. "The stars in the sky keep on shining... I will watch fore~ver. Oh the stars in the sky keep on shining!" When I heard a loud yell from a colt. "What the... Hoops? Weight? Punt?" I asked. I heard a taunt. I ran outside and shrieked at the brown pegasus stallion who bopped Sparklework, knocking her out. "You defeated my sister... now how do you handle ME!?!" I ran at them, smacking them as I passed. I bit Hoops's wing. Flame, our pet Chimera, attacked Punt with the lion head, and Weight with the goat. He didnt have snake yet. Hoops threw me away, and I backflipped onto him. "Darn piece of dung!" I snarled. "What do you have for LAST WORDS?" Hoops went limp under me. "I... Lightning Dust? I have a secret..." I stepped back. "What?" He folded his ears over. "I... I love you." Those words; words of truth, knocked me off track. I saw the scar on my chest, and sighed. He deserved better than me... but... maybe the better ponies dont appeal to him? I heard Sparklework get up. Punt was helping her. Wait... Punt? He... no! Daring was chatting with Weight. No... no... no...... my family! Lost to bullies! I remember having Hoops nudge me... and i saw all black. ((Sorry... third in next!))
