Mysterious Alicorn

Luna stared up towards the wholesome night sky, sighing at the painful loss of her eldest sister. The night air nipped at her breath creating a visible cloud of smoke, that steamed across her face.

"Sister why did you have to leave us behind?" spoke the sad princess of the night, as she walked back into her room, closing the balcony door with her magic.

Her deep blue translucent mane flowing behind her, as she walks towards her bed to rest. Exhausted with the task of rising the sun and lowering the moon, and vice versa. Luna laid down upon her bed looking up at her dark moonlit ceiling, as she began to wonder.

"Dearest sister…" she thought as tears began to fall. "Twas not fair, we had just began to feel normal once again, and now…now…" tears ran down here face, her voice cracking as she talked to nopony but herself.

A sudden knock on the door caused her to lose her concentration.

"Yes.. who dares bother us?" Luna says partially annoyed demanding an answer in quick haste.

"Princess, my apologies" apologized the Royal Guard as he continued. "Princess Twilight requests your presence at once, word from the Crystal Empire, Princess Twilight has stated it was an emergency."

Luna got up and began to clean her face from any tears that had rested on her cheek.

"Very well, we will be on our way" Luna responded, as she waited for the royal guard to leave the grand hall before she moved to towards the Library, where Princess Twilight would be awaiting.

"Tis probably just some small problem, that can be settled easily." Luna thought to herself as she began her slow walk towards the Castles Library.

~~*~~

Princess Twilight was waiting in the library, rummaging through many letters that her sister in law had kept on sending. Though to her surprise none of the letters made any sense, they were all written in old Equestrian language.

"Uh um" said a voice that stood in front of Twilight making her jump with fright.
"AHH" screamed Twilight, as she fell back against a self full of books, most of them piling around her until one large book slams against her head. Her head pounded with pain from the large book that had hit her, she soon adjusted her vision towards her assailant.

"Princess Luna you scared me" Twilight says with an bit of embarrassment in her voice.

Luna looked confused as this was not the first time she had walked in on Twilight.

"Sorry Princess, I didn't mean to yell" said Twilight picking up the fallen books and placing them back.

"Art thou okay?" Luna asks as she helps Twilight move the books out of her way.

"Yes, sorry for the mess, I had gotten a letter from Princess Cadence and well I can't seem to translate it" says Twilight, moving the letter towards Luna.

In an instant Luna's eyes move from left to right scanning the paper with serious dark eyes, at some point Twilight noticed that Luna's expression was becoming more disturbing as she continued to read.

"Is something wrong Princess?" asked Twilight concerned.

Luna's eyes rapidly calmed at Twilight's worry.

"Yes, everything is as you say, alright", Luna responds as she takes the letter and walks towards the door.


"Princess what does the letter say?" asked Twilight still concerned.

"Tis just a letter requiring me to speak with Princess Cadence, that is all" Luna calmly says as she looks towards Twilight.

"Do not fret Twilight Sparkle, everything is fine" Luna says, giving Twilight her best smile she could muster up. "Tis a lie" Luna thought.

The letter which Cadence had encrypted with old Equestrian language said:

PRINCESS LUNA,
AS OF YESTERDAY MORNING A MYSTERIOUS MARE ENTERED THE ROYAL CRYSTAL CASTLE, AND TOOK THE DEAD ALICORN SCROLLS FROM THE ARCHIVE. THEY HAVE TAKEN CELESTIAS BATTLE ARMOR AS WELL. THE CRYSTAL ROYAL GUARDS WERE TAKEN DOWN WITH THE USE OF TERRIBLE DARK MAGIC. A SURVIVING GUARD HAD STATED THAT THE MARE WAS IN FACT AN ALICORN BEFORE PASSING ON. WE NEED YOUR IMMEDIATE ATTENTION AT THE CRYSTAL EMPIRE.

~PRINCESS CADENCE.

PS. PLEASE DO NOT ALERT PRINCESS TWILIGHT ABOUT THE INCIDENT. MY HUSBAND, HER BROTHER WAS ATTACKED BY THE ALICORN AND WAS INJURED BADLY, AS HE WAS PROTECTING ME FROM THE MYSTERIOUS MARE.

I AM AFRAID WE MIGHT BE EXPECTING MORE ATTACKS VERY SOON.

"Twilight I will be departing for a little while, you're in charge till further notice" says Luna as she goes towards the royal carriage and is escorted to the Crystal Empire.
