A gray pegasus mare was carrying a purple unicorn filly on her back. The filly’s eyes were slowly drifting downwards. The mare opened a door and slowly walked into the room.
“But Mama,” the filly said. “I’m not…” A yawn left the filly’s mouth.
The mare giggled. “Tired? I’d say that that contradicts what you say.” The two of them reached a bed with a nightstand beside it. The covers of the bed were pulled back and the filly was placed on the mattress. “You need your rest, dear. You have a big day tomorrow and you need to be well rested. Otherwise what happens?”
“I become grouchy like Aunt Carrot Top?” the filly asked.
“Oi!” a voice screamed between the walls. “I’m not grouchy!” The two of them giggled at the other’s expense.
“Point proven,” the mare brought the covers over the filly. “It’s time to sleep.”
Again, the filly yawned. “Can you sing me a song first? It helps me sleep.” The mare reached for a music box on top of the night stand. She turned the crank a few times before setting it back down. A soothing melody flowed from the box.
“You are my sunshine, my only sunshine,” the filly’s eyes slowly drifted down. “You make me happy, when skies are gray.” Her eyes closed completely.
“You’ll never know dear, how much I love you,” gentle snoring came from the filly. “So please, don’t take my sunshine away.” The filly’s chest moved up and down in a steady rhythm. The mare kissed the sleeping pony’s forehead. She tiptoed out of the room and stood at the doorway. A loving smile was on her face as she watched her child sleep.
Aw. This was really sweet. I liked the relationship between Dinky and Ditzy here, and Auntie Carrot Top was fun too. Good work!
