After her parents death, little Adagio thought her life was over, but one day, her life will change for the better.

Prologue: Flashes of the Past

(Flashback #1: Christmas Day):
(Adagio: age 7)

It was a very snowy Christmas day, and little Adagio Dazzle was sitting next to the Christmas tree with parents, Ruby Swirl and Blue Sapphire, as she was opening her presents. "Oh mom, this ruby necklace looks so beautiful. Thank you, thank you so much, mommy," Adagio said happily.

"I'm glad that you like your Christmas present. That necklace has been in our family for generations, I was just as happy as you were when I got this necklace," Ruby Swirl said as she watched her daughter put the necklace around her neck.

"Hey Adagio, I'm getting ready for a picture, smile for the camera," Blue Sapphire said as he was getting his camera.

"Ok, Daddy," Adagio said as she went up to the center of the tree so the picture could be taken. That Christmas was one of the happiest days of her life. But her happiness would not last long.

(Flashback #2: The hospital):

(Adagio, age 8)

"I'm sorry Mr. Sapphire, but your wife's condition is getting worse and worse every day. I'm afraid that she isn't going to make it. It may be best for you to bring your daughter into her room so Ruby can see her for one last time before she passes," Nurse Redheart informed Blue Sapphire. For some reason, Ruby Swirl had to be taken to the hospital when she started coughing up blood. The doctors finally found out that her kidneys were shutting down, and it was causing her to start bleeding internally. The doctors tried everything they could to help, but they just couldn't stop the bleeding.

"Ok, thank you for informing me. I'll go get Adagio," Blue Sapphire said as he was trying to hold back his tears. He didn't know-how Adagio was going to react on hearing that her own mother was going to die soon

(5 minutes later)

"Daddy, where's Mommy, I want to see mommy," Adagio said as her father entered the room.

"We're going to see her right now, so just follow me into her room," Blue Sapphire assured her daughter.

"Ok, Daddy," Adagio said as they both headed towards Ruby Swirls' hospital room.

(Hospital room 247)
Adagio then rushed into her mother's hospital room to find her mother barely clinging to life.

"Mommy, you're going to be ok, aren't you mommy?" Adagio asked her mother.

"Oh, my sweet Adagio, you have always been an angel in my heart. I just wanted to see you one last time before..." Ruby Swirl's thoughts were then interrupted when she started coughing profusely.

Tears started to form in little Adagio's eyes as she went up to her mother and said, "Mommy, I don't want you to die, I want you to be fine. Then we can go back home and eat spaghetti and meatballs together and watch television together."

"Listen to me Adagio, I want you to be a good girl and I want you to take care of your father and to never forget that I will always be with you," Ruby Swirl said.

"Mommy...I love you," Adagio said as she hugged her mother.

Ruby Swirl, in her final breaths, faintly said, "And I love you too, my sweet Adagio," Before finally passing away.

"Mommy! Mommy, please wake up! Don't leave me, mommy! PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ME!" Adagio screamed in sorrow. Making her father start tearing up. Adagio had lost her own mother, but it wouldn't be the only thing she would lose.

(Flashback #3: The Bus-stop, 2 years later):

(Adagio, age 10)

Her mother's death made her life a lot more difficult for Adagio, not only did she have to do all the chores around the house, but her father started becoming depressed and was now resulting in alcohol to soothe his pain. Because of this, Adagio never saw her father a lot and rarely even talked to him since he would always lock himself in his room and start crying for hours at a time. Adagio didn't get a lot of sleep because of this, and as a result, she would always come to school tired and sad every single day she went to school.

In the past, she would always tell the bus driver goodbye every time she got off the bus, but after her mother died, she got off the bus without even saying a word.

Adagio went up to the front door of her house, used her spare key to open the door, and disappeared into her dark and gloomy house.

"Dad, I'm home. How was your day at...," Before she could finish her sentence, she noticed that her father, who she regularly saw passed out on the couch, was nowhere to be seen.

"Hmm, where could dad be?" Adagio said as she looked for her father.

Adagio looks all over her house to see where her dad was, then when she was walking in a hallway, she heard a loud bang come from her dad's bedroom).

"Dad! DAD, ARE YOU OK?! PLEASE OPEN THE DOOR!" Adagio shouted to get her father's attention. She then starts banging on the door, trying everything to get the door open, then she realizes she has a spare key in her pocket. She then opens the door, but what she saw next would finally change Adagio in the worst way possible.

"Dad...DAD!...DAAAAAAAAAD!" Adagio screamed in terror as she saw her father's lifeless body on top of the bed, with the bed soaked in blood and a bullet wound in his head.

(Flashback #4, The Canterlot City Cemetery)

(Adagio: age 10)

Here Lies Ruby Swirl
Born 02/25/1971, Died 07/21/2007

Here Lies Blue Sapphire
Born 10/31/1975, Died 04/19/2009

As the funeral bells rang, Adagio looks over her mother and father's gravestones with eyes, that were once filled with joy and happiness, now her eyes were empty. Aria Blaze was also at the funeral home because her Great Grandmother had died from leukemia. Aria was holding a violet rose in her hands while trying to hold back her tears since violet roses were her Great Grandmother's favorite flowers.

"Great Granny, I-I-I m-miss you. Here, I-I even b-brought your favorite f-f-f-f-flower for you. I-I...I'm sorry, I just need a minute to myself." Said Aria before she finally broke down into tears. Aria loved her Great Grandmother very much, and when she found out that she had died, Aria was absolutely devastated. It took almost a second before she started crying uncontrollably, and it was about an hour before she finally calmed down.

Aria then saw Adagio and went over to comfort her since she was a friend of Adagio's father.

"I'm sorry that your father died, he was a great and kind man, and I knew him very well. I'm sorry for your loss. Are you going back to your home at any point?" Aria said.

"....No," Adagio said in a blank emotionless tone of voice. "There's no point to going back there, it'll only bring back bad memories," Adagio said as she left the Cemetary.

(The present-day):

(Adagio: Age 11)

Adagio woke up as she was in a shelter she made out of garbage bags and cardboard boxes. She always stared with those hazy, blank, emotionless eyes as she stared up into the moonlight. Her hair was a mess, her clothes were ripped and tattered, and she was starving. Bt she didn't care about hunger, she didn't really care about anything. She was just waiting for the Grim Reaper to come and take her, to end her miserable and meaningless existence, so she could be reunited with her family.
