Chapter 2

It was morning in Ponyville as Fluttershy was flying down the streets with Lightning on her back. Fluttershy was taking her son to school. He had had asked her if she could take him because he was too tired to fly after his nightmare last night. Fluttershy tried to convince to stay home and rest for the day, but Lightning refused the offer. Fluttershy decided not to try and force her son to stay home. However, she did decide that after she took Lightning to school, she would go and meet with her friends so she could talk about Lightning.

When they arrived at the school, Lightning floated off of his mothers back and landed beside before looking her in the eyes. Fluttershy wrapped a foreleg around her son and pulled into a loving embrace.

"Have a good day at school, sweetie." She said sweetly before giving her son a kiss on the forehead.

"I will, Momma, I'll see you when I come home." Lightning responded in his usual soft tone of voice. He kissed his mother on the cheek and ran inside the school.

Fluttershy stayed where she was and watched Lightning leave until he was completely out of sight. She then took to the sky and made her way to Twilight's house where she and her friends were having a get together. When she arrived she knocked on the door and waited patiently for someone to answer. The door soon opened and revealed Twilight who had a happy smile on her face.

"Hi there, Fluttershy, please come in." Twilight said happily before stepping aside to let her friend in.

Fluttershy entered the library and saw that all of her friends were already there and they were eating some cookies. They all waved at the pegasus and she went over to join them with Twilight following her. The two sat down with their circle of friends as the all continued to talk and laugh except for Fluttershy. She nibbled a little bit on a cookie but she was too worried about Lightning to talk much . Rarity notice the distracted Fluttershy and looked at her with concern.

"Fluttershy, darling, is something wrong?" She asked.

Fluttershy jumped a little when she heard her name but then looked at Rarity and the rest her friends before letting out a long sigh.

"Girls, I'm worried about Lightning." Fluttershy said with worry in her voice.

The everyone in the room looked at her in concern when she mentioned her sons name.

"Why are you worried about him, sugarcube?" Applejack asked

Fluttershy let out another sigh before saying, "He's been having a lot of nightmares lately."

Everyone looked at one another for a second before nodding their heads to tell Fluttershy to continue.

"Almost every night I hear him screaming and crying in the middle of the night. When I go to his room I either find him asleep and kicking around in his bed screaming or I find him awake and very afraid. I asked him about his nightmares but he won't tell me what their about. He just says that each one is more scary than the one before. He hasn't gotten a good nights sleep all week and it's starting to worry me."

Fluttershy looked down and sadness as the girls looked around with worry on their face not only for Fluttershy, but for Lightning as well. Twilight got up and began writing something down on a scroll.

"What are you doing, Twilight?" asked Rainbow Dash.

"I'm writing a letter to the princess. I think we should ask her if we could talk with Princess Luna."

Everyone looked confused for a moment before Twilight began talking once more.

"Remember girls, Princess Luna is the princess of the night and has the power to enter our dreams. Maybe we can talk to her and see if she can help us find a way to stop Lightning's nightmares."

The group nodded their heads in understanding as Fluttershy spoke up.

"That's a great idea Twilight. Hopefully Princess Luna can help us, I don't want to see my precious little colt be in any more pain than what he's already been through in his young life."

Everyone frowned in sadness as they remembered Lightning painful past, from when he told them about his real mother's death to when he was foalnapped by his own father. But they also remembered the good times like Lightning's birthday, the Hearths Warming Eve party, and most importantly the day Fluttershy adopted Lightning.

Twilight finished the letter before putting it on a table.

"I'll have spike send it later, right now he's sleeping and I don't want to wake him."

Everyone nodded there heads in understanding as Twilight put a smile on her face.

"Come on girls let's just enjoy the rest of our get together. Aren't we here to have a good time for a while?"

Everyone smile and giggled a little bit before each mare took a cookie and began talking happily.

In Canterlot castle, Princess Celestia entered the throne room and saw Princess Luna standing by the window looking down to the busy streets of Canterlot. She noticed a worried look on her younger sisters face which made her concerned.

She went up to her and places a gentle wing on her shoulder before asking, "Luna, is something wrong?"

The younger Alicorn looked up to her older sister and said, "I'm very worried Celestia. Last night I entered the dream of our young friend Lightning Twister."

Celestia had look of curiosity on her face.

"Fluttershy's son? Why did you enter his dream?" she asked

Luna sighed before saying, "He's been having several horrible nightmares for the past week. I began to become worried about him so I entered his dream last night. However when I entered the dream ended so I couldn't see what the nightmare was about."

Celestia gave her younger sister a sympathetic smile. She knew her job as princess of the night wasn't easy.

"However sister," Luna began once more "I did notice one thing that brings me great worry not for only you and I but the rest of Equestria."

Celestia now had a look of worry on her face.

"When I was in the dream I heard a very familiar laughter and I saw a pair of red and green eyes for only a second."

Luna's face began to turn into a look of worry as well as she looked into her sisters eyes.

"Celestia, you don't possibly think those eyes could have belonged to 'him' do you?"

Celestia let out a sigh and said, "Let's hope not my sister."

Celestia then left the room with more worry than when she entered. Luna left the room feeling the same way as well. She headed upstairs to her bedroom to get some rest so she could raise the moon and do her duties of the night later.

The throne room was now silent and empty until an evil chuckle echoed throughout the room as well as a dark and menacing voice.

"I'm not strong enough to return yet, but I will be soon enough. And when I do return I will have my revenge and Equestria will be mine. Hahahahahaha!"
