Celestia lounged on her large pillow and looked at her little foal Lumina for the hundredth time, its been a week since she was born and the press went into a frenzy over who the father might be. She leaned over and touched her little hooves and smiles when she gurgled in her sleep. Celestia draped a wing over her and looked to the door to see a maid bringing in more color coordinated presents from the unicorn upperclass, illegitimate or not the birth of a princess is still big news.
She turned her head to catalog the gifts in her head before she let the upperclass ponies and a few hoof picked reporters in to celebrate Lumina's birth.
A plush of a popular franchise about a princess
A teddy bear
several parcels big and small all wrapper similarly if not the same and…
She turned to look into the regular pony sized mirror, her own reflection stared back but she couldn't help but wonder who would giver a newborn foal a mirror. It could be for her new room once Lumina could move into her own room but still curious, but knowing the arrogance of nobles she knew one of them would brag about they're gift to the new princess
Lifting her wing she kissed Lumina's cheek when Luna walked through.
"Celly." Luna laid down next to Celestia on her own color coordinated pillow, "Your sure about this, about exposing Lumina to the press?"
"Luna every pony knows i have a foal, i haven't been hiding my pregnancy at all. If any pony tries anything to hurt her they'll have to contend with me." She draped a wing over her little princess again.
"Thats not what I'm worried about, you know that bad press is worse then being ignored…" Luna's face set into a worried frown looking around at the extravagant gifts around them.
"…" Celestia looked to Lumina and studied her features, she mostly like her with the exception of her jet black hair. As far as the press went she was glad she didn't much resemblance to her father the Good King Sombra, but it broker her heart that her daughter would have to grow up with even less of a clue of how her father looks like and how his presence will be sorely missed.
"I can't stop her from the cruel words ponies will say, but it would be even worse of me to lock her away form every pony. For her to grow up so lonely."
Luna quickly nuzzled Celestia and looked to the door as the guests made themselves heard, Celestia motioned to the guard to allow the chosen guests in.
