  4.  
  5. Deep into that darkness, peering,
  6. Long I stood there,
  7. Wondering,
  8. Fearing,
  9. Doubting.
  10.  
  11. >The shadows coalesced into twisted shapes, each a reflection of the fears prominent in your mind's eye.
  12. >They danced, mocking you for your foolishness as you stared out the window.
  13. >You didn't stand a chance at spotting anything at night, but you could not tear yourself away from the window.
  14. >It was your only possibility of foresight before your fears materialised themselves before your very eyes.
  15. >The shadows danced and frolicked under the waxing moon, celebrating its dying light and yearning for the day twixt old and new moons, when darkness reigned supreme.
  16. >The candle burned with silent disdain at them, dutifully lighting the room with its meagre light in protest of their festivities.
  17. >It wasn't enough to repel the darkness outside, but it made your house a bastion of light and warmth against the encroaching gloom.
  18. >The moon hid itself behind a cloud.
  19. >The candle sputtered.
  20. >You stared into the murky blackness, straining your eyes to make out even the faintest of shapes in the night.
  21. >A flutter of movement?
  22. >No, surely that was the branch of some tree.
  23. >A shape darting across the grass.
  24. >Undoubtedly your imagination.
  25. >You kept your futile vigil all the same, your eyes staring out into nothingness.
  26. >The moon regained its courage and peeked out from behind its cloud.
  27. >Moonbeams bathed the nocturnal scene weakly, almost enough for your searching eyes to make out something...
  28. >The light.
  29. >It's throwing you off.
  30. >Licking your fingers, you poise over your candle, your only ally tonight.
  31. >It sputters at you accusingly.
  32. >You douse the flame.
  33. >Slowly, without the interference of the candle, your eyes adjust to the nocturnal landscape.
  34. >Trees and the horizon reveal themselves to you, and slowly, ever so slowly, you finally make out the dancing figures in the night.
  35.  
  36. >Nothing.
  37.  
  38. >Your lawn lays itself bare before you, as placid and serene as ever in the cool night air.
  39. >Your fears should have been alleviated, but you feel cold without you candle.
  40. >You turn to it longingly, yearning for its companionship and warmth once more.
  41. >Reaching out towards the box of matches lying next to it, you seek to once again rekindle its flame.
  42. >"Anon, what are you doing here?" A soft female voice calls from behind you.
  43. >You startle at the sudden reintroduction to conventional companionship.
  44. "I... I couldn't sleep." A line well rehearsed these past few nights, and yet you still stumble on the words.
  45. >"Aww... There there, mister,"
  46. >You feel a pair of hooves, still carrying the lingering warmth of bed, wrap around your waist.
  47. >"Come to bed. Momma will make you feel all better."
  48. >Reassured by the soothing tone of her voice, your stress-addled mind acquiesces to her alluring proposition.
  49. "O-okay. You're right. I'll try again."
  50. >She leads you effortlessly through the darkness back to your bed.
  51. >As you lie in the comfort of a warm duvet, you feel her searching hooves start to grab at your body.
  52. >You shift in protest, your libido euthanised with a potent mixture of fear, stress and anxiety.
  53. >"Shh... Momma's got just the thing to help you sleep."
  54. >Her hooves continue their quest southwards.
  55. >Your discomfort sparks your brain into gear.
  56. >You had a very good reason for being on edge these past few days, but you only just remembered.
  57.  
  58. "T-twilight, aren't you supposed to be in Canterlot?"
