Okay guys! Here is Chapter 2! Thank you for all the positive comments I have been getting, and I hope to update at least every second day! I am sorry if this chapter is a bit short, after chapter 1, I wanted to increase my length. However, due to school I could only get this much and I didn't want to take forever to update. So, here you are!
R&R, and F&F everyone! Also I am taking OC and appearance requests. As well as I want to know if anyone wants Starfire to fall in love! No smut though^_^ I am NOT that kind of writer! Anyway, onto the story!
The purple mare smiled at his question, and tapped her hoof against the dark hardwood floor. "I am the event organizer for the Summer Sun Celebration!" she began cheerfully, practically beaming in pride. "And you're the head of security?"
He returned her exuberant smile, "that would be me ma'am. Everything has been completed, and there is next to no work left to be done. Guards have been put into their places, the weapons have been distributed, and only the princess herself could break in."
Twilight looked relieved, "that's good" she replied, letting out a sigh and suddenly looking exhausted, her posture slumping slightly. "Now I all I have to check up on is the music." She gave him a small smile and waved her hoof goodbye. She turned around and was about to leave, however, right before she exited she called over her shoulder, "keep up the good work Starfire!"
Starfire grinned slightly, feeling happier than he had all day. In his tough profession compliments were hard to come by, and one from a stranger was extremely uncommon. "Many thanks Ms. Twilight" he responded courteously, "I really appreciate you saying that." Starfire looked away from the retreating mare, and back at his work. He frowned at the papers he had splayed over the desktop, disliking the mess.
He hit the desk with his hoof in frustration, causing the paper's to scatter. With a sigh of annoyance, he got up and began to put them on his desk.
"Don't be a frowny-wownie!" said a disapproving voice. Starfire smiled, he would recognize that speech anywhere.
"Hello Pinky Pie" said Starfire, placing the last piece of paper down and shaking his head in pure disdain.
"Hi Starry!" she said laughing. Suddenly Pinky popped out behind him. "What-cha doing?" she asked, surprising him.
Starfire sighed, "I was just trying to organize my desk out and file the paperwork, but I don't think I can focus on that right now." He sighed again and plopped his head down on the polished, dark pine desk. "Ugh!" he yelled, suddenly sitting upright, "I can't focus on anything!"
Noticing Pinky was giving him a strange look he smiled slightly and gave a nervous chuckle, "Sorry, it's been a long day."
"That's okay silly!" said the bright pink pony, rolling her eyes, "I have the perfect thing to cure your boredom...an invitation! But you don't get it unless you guess what it's for." She smiled, willing him to take a chance.
"Let me guess, a party?" he offered, trying not to laugh at Pinky's shocked reaction.
Pinky let out her famed gasp and pointed at Starfire like he was a ghost. "H...h...how did you kn...know?" she said, shaking and talking like she was extremely frightened.
"Umm Pinky, that's what your invitations are always for." Starfire rolled his eyes and stared back down at the random pieces of printed and blank paper strewn across his workspace.
"Oh! Silly me" Pinky said giggling to herself. "Here, take an invitation." Pinky passed a small white envelope onto his desk, and nudged it towards him with her nose. "Oh!" she suddenly yelled, "I have to go and hand out more, so everypony can come! Bye Starfire!"
Suddenly Starfire was completely alone in his office, with a pinky shaped cloud of dust beside him. As the dust cloud evaporated, he rolled his eyes again and looked back down at his work. After a few minutes of just staring, Starfire decided he had worked hard enough that day. It would probably be best to quit while his brain was still functioning. Besides, he had to be energetic enough to handle the party and take charge of security at the Summer Sun Celebration.
Walking out of his small office, he closed the large oak door displaying his name and position, and trotted back down the hallway. Taking a right he walked back to the reception office, where he said goodbye to Derpy, took his things off the coat rack, and headed outside the large, imposing building.
Starfire walked back down the long tree lined road, and stared at the tops of the surrounding cherry trees, wondering what it must feel like to fly. The leaves of the trees seemed almost in as full of bloom as their fragrant flowers, and their pink undersides looked like they were glimmering against the blue sky.
Shaking himself out of his elusive daydreaming, Starfire pranced up the steps to his inviting home. Opening the double front doors he was shocked to see his parents sitting on his couch, engaged in what looked like a serious, tearful discussion.
His fathers was shouting and waving his hooves above his head, his dark blue mane and tail with light blue streaks that were short and spiky at the ends waving about as he shook his head. His light blue fur that matched his streaks was on end, showing that his father was extremely angry. Despite his upset, his electric green eyes still had their kind glow, but the twinkle in them had diminished, and his cutie mark, an electric blue lightning bolt, was glowing.
He was always shocked at how different his mother looked, with her lilac mane, and a very light pink coat. She styled her mane straight with bangs, and always was wearing a small black beret. Her cutie mark was a paintbrush with a dab of red paint at the end, and she had once been one of the best oil painters in all of Ponyville before they had moved.
His mother jumped at the sound of the door closing and looked at him apologetically. "Sorry honey-" she began but Starfire cut her off.
"It's fine mom, you own the house don't you. Now do I get a hug or not?" Starfire said, opening his forelegs wide enough for both parents.
They got off the couch and came over to hug him tightly.
Starfire chuckled, "Gentler mom!" he commanded as she squeezed him like a teddy bear, "I'm not going anywhere."
His mother slightly let up her hold and gave him a small apologetic glance. "Sorry my sweet little star" she said, ruffling his mane with her hoof, "I just missed you so much." Starfire's mother hugged him extra hard to emphasize her last few words.
Starfire grunted at the squeezing, his lungs crying for oxygen. "Okay mom, I get it, I missed you too, but you'll miss me a whole lot more if I die of suffocation" he retorted. Starfire struggled so much to get out of his mother's iron grip, that when she let go he fell, letting out a loud thud as he hit the floor.
"Sorry honey" said his mother looking at the ground sheepishly.
"That's fine" said Starfire again, trying to comfort her as he slowly stood up, his behind still smarting from the fall.
"Come and sit son, please" his father said from the leather couch, politer than usual.
Starfire was surprised, he hadn't even noticed his dad leave the hug, and his father rarely said please too him. That was generally reserved for his mother. "Okay" he responded walking over and plopping down right next to his father.
His mother sat on his other side, and exchanged a frightened glance with her husband.
"What? What's going on? Is it something dangerous?" Starfire looked at his parents worried.
"Well, your mother and I...well we have something important we'd like to tell you" his father began.
"And we want you to know that we love you very, very much" added his mother, giving what she probably considered a reassuring smile.
"Why! What's happening?" asked Starfire, starting to panic, "did someone die?" His mind raced wondering who it could be, he hadn't heard from his uncle for a while, maybe it could be…
"No, nothing like that, it's just you're, well you're..." his father began, interrupting his thoughts.
"You're adopted Starfire" his mother said simply.
:O Suspense! Anyway, Chapter 2 everyone! This wasn't beta read, as I wanted it out as soon as possible. Thanks for reading, Princess Luna out!
