my princess chapter 2- tea with a princess ( part one- a little busy right now)
A dark deep frown set itself on Twilight's lips as Luna answered her, her pristine blue hair shimmering in the light of the mid morning sun. Twilight had only recently met princess Luna, at one of pinkie's classic parties, celebrating her reformation from Nightmare moon to princess Luna. At the party, twilight ( along with the rest of the mane six) had been quite courteous to the princess, yet at the same time had avoided her completely. Nobody recovers from a night like that so easily. " Good morning miss Sparkle, how unexpected. I was just having my morning tea, would you care to join me?" asked Luna, a cheery grin plastered onto her muzzle as she welcomed in the unicorn " th-thank you, you're too kind" said a shy and cautious Twilight, wanting to be prepared should Luna suffer another " episode". Twilight took quick glances across the bed chamber as she stepped in, there were telescopes, starry paintings, globes, and even the occasional star chart, heavily noted in Luna's own penmanship . Luna clearly loved her night time, and Twilight couldn't blame her, stargazing appeared to be a hobby they shared, however Twilight had grown out of needing a nightlight, a trait Luna still seemed to posses. " Please miss Sparkle, do sit down" said a happy Luna, pointing her hoof to a cushion laying besides a small table, upon which rested the most elegant tea set Twilight had ever laid eyes upon.
Twilight sat there in silence, running her hooves over the soft carpetted floors of the royal bed chamber, sipping softly at the chamomile tea hung magically before her. She let out a small cough to try and ease the tension, but nothing worked, she could not feel at ease where she was. Her deep purple eyes glanced over at the alicorn sat in front of her, she seemed to be feeling the complete opposite of Twilight right now, a bright grin was streaked across her face, it was heartwarming and genuine, but it only served to put Twilight less at ease. She gulped down another helping of tea and started to speak to the pony " so..... princess Luna....How have you been since we last saw each other?" she asked awkwardly, barely able to make eye contact with the pony. She was scared. Like every pony in Equestria she still retained some fear for Luna, or rather, for her nightmare moon persona, and nobody would think it was unjustified. The being that had once threatened to cloak the world in eternal night, now sat before her as nothing but an innocent young pony. In her heart she knew that princess Luna was no harm whatsoever, but something about the events that she went through when she first came to ponyville made her want to drink her tea, excuse herself, and run out of the castle like there was no tomorrow.
Luna blushed a little from Twilight's question,as a princess she was forced to remain indoors at almost all times, she so rarely got to speak with other ponies. " Well honestly, i've been wonderful. Celly-err....p-princess celestia has been so forgiving since i came back, she's been trying to make the transfer easy for me" her smile beamed for a moment, but then slowly dropped as her thoughts flipped back to her previous life, the solidarity of the moon, the loss of her sister. " Um....princess Luna? is something the matter?" Twilight tilted her face at Luna, every braincell trying to work her out " its about the moon isnt it? do..do you miss it? is equestria not what you expected?" Twilight was never the most empathic of ponies, she too had spent her life mostly alone, however even she could tell when another pony was depressed.
Twilight realised just then how many traits she really did have in common with princess Luna, they were both young fillies, greatly skilled in magic, had a great admiration for Celestia, and were both still learning so much about the world. But there was another thing that linked the pair. Loneliness. Both of them had been alone for most of their life, which had left them both inexperienced in truly living. yet twilight had chosen her life of solitude, Luna's had hers forced upon her, Twilight felt that perhaps she should stay for a little longer, if only to try and help the princess in her own growth.
" Oh not at all! ive been great Ms. Sparkle!its just you have no idea how terrible the moon is! the new pony ways, and technology are so strange to me, but they're also so exciting!" A wild blush suddenly spread over the princess' cheeks,and she forced her eyes down to her hooves, in a hope that Twilight wouldnt notice. " F-forgive me, speaking like that befits a little schoolfilly, not a princess". Twilight couldnt help but sincerely giggle at this, she so rarely got to see celestia acting so true to herself, so it was nice to see a princess, being who she really was. " Oh don't worry about it" she said in a soft voice, the faintest trickle of a smile appearing on her lips " if that's how you feel then i want to know" Twilight thought for a moment, and then set down her teacup, laying herself down on the plush floor "so what are these 'new pony ways and technology' that interest you so much?" Luna's head immediately sprung back up and she locked onto Twilight " what! are you actually asking me how i feel?!" she asked her voice showing no emotion other than complete and utter surprise, as though some pony had offered her a plate of pine cones for food. Twilight looked back at the princess with a grimace, thinking she had ticked her off " umm..yes?" she asked weakly. Twilight's entire body tensed up and her eyes locked shut, preparing for what she thought was an oncoming barrage of magic, instead all she received was a pair of warm hooves wrapped around her, and the sound of a pony sniffling.
Her eyes shot open the moment skin and fur touched her " princess?" she asked, dumbfounded. Of all the reactions she expected from the princess this was not one of them. She felt a small warmth spreading through her emanating from their points of contact, it was a feeling she hadn't ever had before, it was strange, yet nice. Her mind was lost for only a second, lost in a whirlwind of bliss, but soon her rational mind set back in and she became horrified to realise what was happening to her. " Luna get off of me!" she shouted, her hooves pressing against Luna's shoulders hard. In one fluid motion she had thrown her back and into her wardrobe, a sickening bang resonating in Twilight's ears and mind. Tears streaked down Luna's face, and a dark blue bruise was appearing on her back " T-twilight?" she squeaked, her eyes looking up at twilight in fear and misery. Twilight couldn't bare to look at the princess, she had hurt her, she needed to leave.
Her hooves sprang off in the direction of the exit, she didn't know where she was headed, she only knew that it was as far away from here as possible. She had assaulted a princess, and for what reason? Fear of a dead entity? her own personal trepidations about contact with another pony? she made herself sick. The door out of the bedchambers was inches from her nose when it slammed shut, the hinges blowing off with a force that could have crushed even the strongest of ponies. " How dare you hurt luna!!!" screamed the voice behind her, and an ethereal glow flooded over her, pulling her back, and forcing her infront of a pair of deep blue eyes. A pair nobody had seen for nearly a year.
