Tumbleweed walked the streets watching the stars fall. it was truly magnificent spectacle to watch. And he knew exactly who started this and right now he couldn’t find him to save his life.
From what he knew North was a very powerful unicorn and a descendant of royalty but celestia forbid if you called him prince. Tumble looked up the side of canterlot mountain to see a familiar shadowy figure scaling the mountain. Tumble reached the foot of the mountain leading into canterlot. He didn’t want to go any further near the heavily guarded city but never the less he had questions that needed answering.
“Hey Tumble come on up here.” a voice spoke further up the mountain. Tumble looked but didn’t see anything but nevertheless he followed. As he approached the source of the voice he spotted north at near a cliff edge.
“Hey North” He called out to the lone stallion. North didn’t respond. Tumble took this extremely well. North however waited patiently for the stallion to come closer.
“Dont ignore me North we gotta talk about this here plan of yours.” Tumble basically snarled at the white unicorn.
“Did you really come to talk about the plan or is there something more thats bothering you?”
“Yeah i wanna know more about you. you always told us you connected to royalty. But how, are you just part of the elite or is there something more to that?” he said pacing
North cocked his eyebrow before answering “Basically both.”
Tumble stop and stared at North. “Why are you avoiding this. Listen I know you're not being truthful with me and it making me mad.”
“So what make you so damn special that I have to tell you everything” North said anger creeping into his voice.
“Thats not… Look Im just saying that we all come from dark backgrounds and here you come this canterlot noble who offers us a second chance out of all the ponies in equestria.” Tumble said with all honesty.
“Well if you knew what I was planning you wouldn’t help me.”
“How would you know that?”
“Because if this does go right I'm gonna have to give my life that how i know!!!”
“Ohhh Kay, I reckon that a good enough. What are you planning then”
“I'm gonna try and save luna”
“Save luna? Ok now you talking like a madpony. Why would…”
“because what happen to her was my fault. If i was only stronger...”Tear rolled down his face. “ you think you all had dark past what about me e-everyone that I-I loved betrayed me or was k-killed trying to save me.” His eyes starting to glow
“Woah calm down North” Tumble knew he needed to calm the unicorn and fast. the wind around them began to pick up speed. He rushed over to him and embrace North holding him tight. Listen I know how you can get but you need to take a deep breath and calm down.” He felt the North chest expand and contract. “I’m not gonna push it any further”
“I hate you” north said sliding from the stallion grip
“come on, you know you love me” Tumble said smiling
“Yeah and you love stallions, so were talking about two different loves here. ” North said looking towards the stars. “hey sit beside me, I wanna talk to you about that ”
“Umm… Ok” Tumble said nervously sitting beside North.
“Do you remember the day I saved you.” north said still watching the star.
“Yeah How can I forget. I was up to my neck in royal guards” tumble said chuckling but visually shivering from the memory. It didn’t go unnoticed. you came in covered in your own blood and limping badly.”
“Yeah lets not talk about that shall wwe.” North said before looking at him. “Do you remember the promise I made you”
“Yeah you said ‘you would give another chance’ and I never truly thank you for that.”
North blinked at the stallion clearly confused before replying. “I haven't done anything yet. well I have but… oh you understand in a minute.” north said shaking his head.
“What do you mean! Not only you save my life and help me find away the help ponies but you also gave me family that loves me and you say you done nothing!”
“I guess you didn't understand what I meant when I said another chance.” North said smiling know what was to come so.
“Ok, So what didn't I understand and what does this have to do with me being gay.”
“Oh nothing, immediately important” North said looking
“North, what are you going on about now.”
Just then Tumble heard a rustle in the bushes. Tumble got ready to run till he saw North wasn’t moving and he heard a voice speak.
“Um... Hello? Northern, you said to meet you here when.. the.. stars… began... falling…”
Tumble look toward the the new guest and froze. He lock eyes with the pony. He was slender light blue stallion with a white mane. This stallion had a sliver saxophone for a cutie mark. Time stood still as they stared at each other.
“Jazz” Tumble voice shaking slightly.
“Tumble” The new stallion yelled running towards tumble as they crash and roll on the ground. The two stallion embraced each other. slightly crying in each other arms. Tumble had completely forgotten about north presences.
“I-I t-thought that you were dead” Jazz said with so much pain.
“What ever gave you that idea?”
“Because when you told me your parents found out, you went missing. I tried to find you but when I did you were surrounded by royal guards in a burning house.” jazz Said with honest hurt in his eyes.
“I was there but North... here…”
Tumble looked up to see north was gone
“Least I got to see you cry Tumble” North said walking toward the bottom of the mountains.
North stop a the foot of the mountain and looked back up at the couple. It was a nice setting with the shooting stars and the mare in the moon in the background. But he couldn’t enjoy the view, he had to plan to finish. North focused his magic in the tip of his horn as he stop the star from falling. “Soon” said exhausted unicorn from the feat he a preformed.
Celestia Stared at the falling stars Confused as to what was causing this to occur. Then the star came to a halt and a blinding blue light affixed itself in the moons glow.
Celestia watched this light add itself to the sky and only one pony came to mind as see saw this.
“Princess” a lone guard spoke startling the white alicorn. “Forgive me for my interruption, but the canterlot elite are in uproar, they wish to know what's going on.”
“Stonewall I will only speak to the captain on the matter at hand” Celestia said regaining her composure.
“Yes your majesty I will fetch her right away.”
“No need Stonewall. You are dismissed”
A mare wearing sliver armour step into the room. She was young captain but her skill couldn’t be matched by many.
“hello captain I guess you know what this means.”
“Yes ma’am we have to stop him.”
“what do you plan on doing”
“meeting him at the gate.”
