Bloom & Sky - Ep725
Bloom and Sky are a couple featured in Winx Club. They are formally introduced to each other by Stella in Season 1, with Sky being introduced under the name "Brandon" due to assuming his squire's name for security purposes.

Overview

Bloom and Sky are a close couple whose relationship has endured many ups and downs throughout the course of the series. Though there are times where their wills can waver, they have both been incredibly loyal to one another and their relationship has still managed to survive all of the trials they have faced. This leads to Sky asking Bloom to be his princess at the end of the first movie, The Secret of the Lost Kingdom and formally asking Bloom to marry him towards the end of Magical Adventure. In both instances, Bloom accepted happily, and the two have been engaged ever since.

Series

Seasons

Bloom and Sky first meet in the latter half of the first episode, as the Specialists had arrived to help aid Bloom and Stella in their fight against Knut and his ghouls. Stella formally introduces Bloom to all of them, but Bloom seems to quickly develop an interest in Sky who was under the alias "Brandon" at the time (which is also reciprocated on his end).

Throughout Bloom's time at Alfea, she and "Brandon" grow quite close as friends; dancing at the end of "Alfea College for Fairies" and so on.

Bloom and Sky's imaginary first kiss.

However, their relationship hits multiple bumps on the road, with the major bump happening in the episode "Secrets within Secrets," where Bloom finds out that Sky had switched identities with Brandon and was engaged to Princess Diaspro. This revelation even causes Bloom to leave Magix, believing that she was never meant to be a magical being.

Luckily, the two of them later reconcile during the war against the Trix and restore their friendship. The two even imagine sharing a kiss once the war has passed but they hug each other instead.

Bloom and Sky have become closer this season but the two of them still seem insecure of their relationship. Initially, this is more apparent on Bloom's end which can be seen specifically when she, Stella, Sky and Brandon accompany their new friend, Aisha, in a mission to rescue her Pixie friends from Lord Darkar. Throughout the course of the mission, both Sky and Aisha openly express how impressed they are with the other's survival skills. These comments were made purely out of a mutual respect, but it still created tension between the group as Bloom quickly became jealous of how much attention Aisha was getting, causing Bloom to behave slightly antagonistic towards her. This can be seen during a scene in the episode "Princess Amentia," where Bloom expresses her jealousy much more obviously at the sight of Aisha embracing Sky after rescuing her (which was not shown in the 4Kidz dub).

Through the course of the season, Bloom and a majority of the Alfea Fairies develop an interest in their newest professor, a mysterious paladin named Avalon. Bloom seemed to have developed an especially strong crush on her new professor which can be first seen in "Party Crasher." There, she left the Winx to look for Professor Avalon and she was so caught up in finding him that she left Sky in the dust to continue her search. Sky gradually became jealous of Avalon thanks to Bloom focusing all of her attention on him, making Avalon the only thing she would talk about when they were together. Even after Avalon revealed that he could help Bloom uncover her past, Sky remained jealous of how eager Bloom was to be with Avalon over him.

2x10-Bloom and Sky

Bloom embracing Sky after reviving him.

A notable strain in their relationship happened in "Crypt of the Codex," where the two got into an argument over the phone in the beginning of the episode. Bloom even told Sky to go talk to Diaspro as an insult after crashing into a pillar. This leaves both parties frustrated for the remainder of the day and, at night, Bloom confesses to Flora that she does not know why Sky would be jealous of Avalon. Things soon took a turn for the worse as the Trix attack Red Fountain for its piece of the Codex and, during their attack, Icy lands a fatal hit on Sky, leaving him unconscious and slowly dying. Bloom desperately tried waking Sky up but he remained unresponsive and Flora confirmed that he no longer had a pulse. Afraid of losing Sky, Bloom's trauma managed to awaken the healing aspect of the Dragon's Flame as she confessed her love for him, and the healing flames managed to revive Sky. Relieved and overjoyed, Bloom embraced Sky and the two of them made up. Despite all of this though, Bloom remained insecure in their relationship.

In "Battle on Planet Eraklyon," she and Flora accompanied Sky and Brandon to Eraklyon to rescue Diaspro. There, she met Sky's parents, the king and queen of Eraklyon and it did not go smoothly as her being unaware of royal mannerisms caused her to embarrass herself in front of them; furthering their already negative opinion of her in the process. Luckily, Bloom makes quite an impression on Erendor and Samara at the end of the episode after she played a major role in rescuing Diaspro and convincing the techno-ninjas to work elsewhere.

Further into the season, the Winx and the Specialists were sent off on a vacation to the Wildlands by Faragonda in order to repair their strained relationships. There, the group gets trapped inside a cable car but, thanks to Bloom's quick-thinking, they all managed to escape safely. Upon landing in the snow, Bloom confessed to everyone that she really was beginning to doubt her relationship with all of her friends and earned her Charmix in doing so.

Though their relationship had begun to mend itself, things took a turn for the worse when Bloom is kidnapped by Professor Avalon's imposter under Lord Darkar's orders. The remaining Winx girls, Specialists and Pixies orchestrated a rescue mission with help from Faragonda, Griffin, Codatorta and the Codex Guardian Pixies, with Sky having led most of the mission, being especially frantic over the possibility of losing Bloom forever to Darkar's influence.

Bloom . Sky

Sky reaching out to Bloom.

In the season finale, everyone managed to enter the Relix Realm but were unable to put a stop to the ritual. Darkar had paralyzed everyone to stop them from trying to interfere but Sky was able to overcome his paralysis and approach Dark Bloom. Believing that the real Bloom was still there, Sky confessed his true feelings for Bloom with the hopes of bringing her out. He quickly faints after making his confession but, to everyone's surprise, Bloom was able to recall all of her memories with Sky and his love for her breaks her free of Darkar's grasp. Using the Ultimate Power, Bloom reverted back to her original state and healed every one of her friends and allies in Relix. Everyone then escaped as Relix and Darkar's Fortress crumbled after Darkar's defeat.

Afterwards, everyone celebrated Darkar's defeat with another end-of-the-year party at Alfea. At the party, Sky looked for Bloom and, after finding her, the two talked about what happened inside Darkar's Fortress—more specifically, about Sky's confession. Bloom admitted to also being in love with Sky and the two share a kiss before being called over by their friends to take pictures.

Bloom and Sky's relationship seemed to have hit a bump sometime after Darkar's defeat, as it is revealed that they got into a fight. Bloom is noticeably upset by this even to the point of not wanting to go on break until she could talk with Sky. It does not help that they cannot find time to talk any time soon as Sky was already on his way back to Eraklyon by the time she told the girls. Fortunately, Sky was able to turn around to reunite with Bloom thanks to having received an invite to Stella's Princess Ball. He then accompanied Bloom to the Princess Ball as her date.

Later on, in the episode "The Company of Light," Sky visited Bloom at Alfea and revealed that Eraklyon's 1,000th Year Anniversary celebration was coming up. There, he planned to profess his undying love for Bloom, announcing their engagement in the process. Though nervous, Bloom happily accepted and spent most of her detention with the Winx being taught how to act like a princess.

Things soon entered a downward spiral, however, when during the celebration, Sky is placed under Valtor's influence thanks to a love potion Diaspro had gotten from the evil wizard. When the time came for Sky to profess his love for Bloom, he did so but for Diaspro, breaking Bloom's heart and shocking his friends. When the Winx tried to approach Sky for answers as to why he was stringing Bloom along, Sky immediately sent his guards on them under the accusation of them being witches and Bloom being a servant of Valtor's. His blind rage even tore apart his friendship with Brandon and, despite Bloom trying to reach out to Sky, Sky pushed her farther back at every turn; calling her a witch more and more and showing no hesitation when it came to harming her.

Naturally, Bloom was devastated by Sky's sudden shift, as seen in "The Heart and the Sword" and, with the added pressure of being seen as a threat to the safety of Alfea's students by some of their parents, Bloom left Alfea to calm down in Gardenia. While there, Vanessa convinced Bloom into at least getting an answer from Sky and Stella soon arrived at Bloom's home with news of Sky and Diaspro's engagement. This furthered Bloom's resolve in getting an answer.

Valotors Mark

Bloom finding Valtor's Mark on Sky's shoulder.

With Riven and Tecna's help, Bloom returned to Eraklyon with Stella, Flora and Musa by her side to confront Sky, however, all of her questions were met with nothing but animosity. He then pursued the Winx along with his guards and managed to corner the four fairies in a room full of armor. During their scuffle, Sky was knocked to the ground and the right shoulder of his suit was cut, revealing that Valtor's Mark had been placed on him. Stella then used her Fairy Dust on Sky and though it was able to remove the Mark, the Winx were unable to see it happen, so Bloom worried that the spell may not have been broken.

In "Fury!," it is revealed that Valtor's Mark was indeed lifted from Sky and, after regaining his senses, Sky had Diaspro banished from Eraklyon under an act of treason. He also freed Brandon from imprisonment and came to Alfea to make amends with Bloom, but he had arrived too late as Bloom had left to train on Pyros: The Island of Dragons.

The two were reunited in "In the Snake's Lair" once Bloom returned from Pyros with her incomplete Enchantix powers. After reconciling with Sky, the two of them head for the Omega Dimension to meet up with their friends on their search for Tecna and throughout their search, Bloom assured both herself and Sky that she would never risk losing him ever again.

With the Winx Club reunited, the six fairies were more determined than ever to defeat Valtor. After having learned about the Water Stars—the only things that could snuff out the Dragon's Flame—the Winx, Pixies and Specialists (excluding Riven and Helia) headed for the Red Tower. Since Bloom's Enchantix was still incomplete, she was unable to enter the Red Tower with the rest of the Winx so, to pass the time, she played a ball game with Sky, Timmy, Riven and Ophir in "The Crystal Labyrinth."

Towards the end of the season, Bloom and Sky embraced as they celebrated Valtor's defeat in "Wizard's Anger." However, their happiness did not last as Bloom could not shake the feeling that Valtor had survived their bout. Bloom's unease was later confirmed to be true in the following episode, as all of the Specialists except Helia were kidnapped by Valtor in a last-ditch effort to exact revenge.

In response to Valtor's message, the Winx, Helia and Nabu headed for Andros' Omega Portal to combat Valtor. They each entered a different pathway and Bloom found herself in a room where Sky was suffering just behind a wall of fire. Bloom braved the wall, only to be faced with a Sky imposter created by the fiery part of Valtor's Spell of the Elements. Luckily, Bloom figured out that she needed to strike Valtor down to defeat the Fire Monster and successfully did so through her Dragon Fury spell.

Further into the season finale, Bloom used the essence of her Dragon's Flame to seek out Valtor's spark of the Flame, which caused her body to fall lifeless as her spirit fought Valtor from the inside. Sky kept Bloom's body close by and feared that she had sacrificed herself to destroy Valtor for good. Fortunately, the essence of Bloom's Dragon's Flame returned to her body and Sky embraced her, relieved that she was alive.

As Season 4 opens it is revealed that with Sky now being the King of Eraklyon, Bloom rarely has time to see him. When the Specialists arrive at Alfea to meet their girlfriends, Bloom feels sad that Sky is not there. Her attitude quickly changes as Sky is revealed to be hiding in the Specialists' ship. Their reunion is cut short as the Winx prepare to depart for Earth to find the last terrestrial fairy of Earth.

After the Winx set up their Love & Pet shop in Gardenia, Bloom's ex-boyfriend Andy shows up. He invites Bloom and the Winx to see his band perform at the Frutti Music Bar. Around the same time, Sky and the Specialists arrive in Gardenia under secret orders by Faragonda to help the Winx. Bloom, not knowing that Sky is in Gardenia spying on her, is seen hanging around with Andy. After seeing Bloom kiss Andy on the cheek out of thanks, Sky assumes that Bloom still has really strong feelings for him and gets jealous. After fighting the Wizards of the Black Circle, Sky mentions to Bloom the Specialists' orders to help the Winx but also says he saw her with Andy. Bloom gets angry at him that he did not trust her and for spying on her. She storms off with the rest of the Winx.

When the Winx fix up their apartment, Andy and his band stop by to see how its going. Stella mentions to Bloom that Andy is still into her which Bloom is surprised about. Sky and the Specialists (taking advice from Mitzi) appear sometime later to find the Winx with Andy and his group. Andy wanting to relieve the tension between everyone leaves but invites the Winx and Specialists to see his band play at the Frutti Music Bar. Sky then confronts Bloom about how close she and Andy are and storms off with the rest of the Specialists.

The two are seemingly at odds with each other at times, but they later reconcile after Bloom gets her Believix form and abilities.

Bloom and Sky in Season 5

In "The Spill", Sky shows up with a new changed hairstyle. Bloom appreciates the change. However, he plans to give her the Pendant of Eraklyon two times before he finally lost it in a rescue action at oil rig. In that case, an old omen says if the crowned prince of Eraklyon loses the pendant, it means that he will never be happy with the girl he loves. From that time, Sky starts to avoid Bloom. Ultimately with his sacrifice for Bloom, he gets amnesia. From that moment, he treats Bloom like a stranger. In "The Sirenix Book", he still cannot remember anything and eventually dismiss her during their walk.

In "The Shimmering Shells", Sky accompanied Bloom, Musa and Tecna in their mission in saving Gardenia's Ocean. Later on, Bloom tells her to fight the sea monsters but does not know how to use a sword but later, he regained a bit of memory and uses that sword to save Bloom.

Later, he accompanies Bloom as well as Stella, Flora, and Aisha to Domino to attend a ceremony of Domino's revival (see Secret of the Lost Kingdom). Bloom tries to remind Sky that it was his courage that helped revived Domino from its icy prison, but he cannot remember that. When the Trix attacks the castle and iced over Oritel and Marion, Sky managed to defend them from getting shattered. He and the Winx quickly fought off the Trix, then he and Bloom restored Oritel and Marion back to their real selves. It was also at that time Flora returned the Heart of Eraklyon back to Sky, who then instantly regained his memories. He finally presents the heart to Bloom.

Later, Diaspro abuses her new position as Erendor's liaison to drive a wedge between Bloom and Sky. Working around the royal politics, Sky and Bloom were able to get in touch with each other at times, refusing to let anything or anyone get between them. Bloom gets a vision of herself and Sky holding each other tenderly when she was dancing before the magical mirror, thus opening her heart and earning her ballet shoes.

Movies

Bloom was watching the girls become the Guardian Fairies of the Magic Dimension when

Bloom and Sky SLK
Sky came there to comfort her. Bloom and Sky were later seen dancing in the fields of Alfea. Sky was telling Bloom something but he was disturbed by a ship from Eraklyon.

Later on, after Bloom dreamed about Daphne telling her about admission to Domino, she later wakes up and goes into the living room and saw the Winx and the Specialists (minus Sky but came in as a surprise).

Bloom was still disturbed by the Eraklyon ship that picked Sky up earlier, fearing for the worst. Sky tries to explain what it was all about, but she tells him to explain after the mission since she did not want to risk getting distracted emotionally. During the battle with Mandragora and the Ancestral Witches, after Stella, Flora, Tecna, and Aisha get defeated, Sky entered the dimension and pulled out the Sword of Domino despite Bloom's protests that doing so would kill him since he is only a prince. He apparently died from the sword's curse, devastating Bloom, but was taken by surprise when he suddenly got up to save her in time from a possessed Mandragora. Bloom then learned from Sky that the transport from earlier that picked him up was to get him to his coronation as King of Eraklyon, making him the "crownless king" in the legend, thus allowing him to use the Sword of Domino without hassle.

At the end of the movie when they have saved Domino Bloom has a princess ball, she dances with Sky. While dancing they pass by Stella and Brandon, Brandon passes a box to Sky which contains a ring. Sky whispers into Bloom's ear saying "will you be my princess?". Bloom says yes in the form of a loving kiss.

Things were going great for Sky and Bloom as they are now engaged. However, when Sky's father, King Erendor, found out that Sky's intention is the Princess of Domino, he tells his son to cancel the engagement, much to his confusion and shock. He demanded to know why his father would ask him of such a thing, where he revealed a dark truth about his kingdom and its relation to Domino...

Bloom became devastated when her engagement to Sky was just cancelled, which her father, Oritel, took as an insult. As a result, Bloom was met with several possible suitors, none who could hold her interest. Finally, she was met by a disguised Sky whom she recognized and was in the midst of explaining what happened, but was caught by Oritel. Not giving Sky a chance to speak in his defense, he banishes him from Domino. Bloom is angered at her father's actions and leaves for Earth in retaliation as she did not want to be near him for the moment.

On Earth, after Oritel finally managed to listen to reason thanks to Marion, tries to apologize to Bloom for what he did to Sky, but like he did with him, Bloom refuses to give him the time of day and bluntly states that she is going to meet up with Sky whether he approves or not.

The Winx and the Specialists took an airship to find the tree of magic, before it was overrun by doppelgangers. Bloom and Sky managed to successfully fight off their and each other's fakes. Even while kissing, they took down two doppelgangers trying to blindside them.

After the final battle once the Ancestral Witches and the Trix defeated, Oritel and Erendor make up, and give their children their blessings for their engagement.

Comics

Much like the animated series, Bloom and Sky first meet on the day Bloom first met Stella and learned that she was truly a fairy.

Dangerous Mistake (I4)

Bloom attacking Sky after mistaking him for being a monster.

Retold in Issue 4 (which follows the first episode), Bloom and Stella fought against Knut, his ghouls and a Hunting Troll that had broken into Bloom's home in Gardenia to steal Stella's sceptre. During the fight, Bloom was able to channel her magic and give Knut and his gang a run for their money with the sheer power behind her attacks. Just as the two of them were going to do away with Knut and his gang, a portal opened up just behind the pair and Bloom instinctively attacked the person who stepped out of the portal believing that they yet another monster. Stella then explains to Bloom that the boy she just attacked was not a monster but a member of a squad of Specialists from Red Fountain that she is friends with.

The sight of the Specialists causes Knut to flee with his ghouls through the use of another portal and, with all threats out of the way, Stella formally introduces Bloom to the Specialists.

Awkward Apology

Bloom apologizing shyly.

Sky, who has assumed the name "Brandon" at the time, is the first to take off his helmet and greet Bloom. He jokes over hoping that Bloom has a memory as good as her powers so that she will be able to remember him and not blast him in the face the next time they meet. Bloom sheepishly apologizes, hoping that there are no hard feelings between them, and Brandon confirms this as he helps his friends apprehend the Hunting Troll. He is also the last of the Specialists to leave as he sees both Bloom and Stella off before going back through the portal he originally came out of.

The Secrets of Alfea (5)

Bloom and Brandon's budding relationship.

Bloom and Brandon do not see each other again until the Traditional Meeting Dance between the Alfea Fairies and the Specialists of Red Fountain that had occurred in Issue 2.

After the Winx execute their first counterspell and turned the contents of the magical eggs that the Specialists brought as presents back to normal, Stella pulls Bloom and the girls out onto the dance floor to celebrate and enjoy the party. As they hang out, Brandon and Bloom spot each other from across the room and Brandon approaches Bloom to give her a magical egg. Rainbow butterflies swirl around the pair as Brandon invites Bloom to dance with him and the Winx watch on as the two of them dance.

Bloom & Sky's Initial Meeting

Bloom and Brandon's initial meeting at the Dance.

The day after the dance, Bloom recounts what happened during the rest of the dance to the Winx in Issue 3. Bloom sheepishly admits to being so shy that she did not know what to do but she was able to approach Brandon out by the balcony where the two chatted. Somehow their conversation became awkward as Brandon basically shook her hand before walking off somewhere else while they were talking about Bloom being from Earth. This causes the girls to joke around over how Bloom may have "overwhelmed" Brandon into making him speechless while Stella thinks that he just a strange one.

The next day, Brandon and Prince Sky are tasked with transporting the Hunting Troll they caught back to a protected territory where they can set him free but, unbeknownst to them, the forcefield cage that the Troll is contained in had been tampered with. The two boys take off to complete their mission while, at the same time, the girls are going through their physical exercises, during which they officially establish the Winx Club and the club oath.

Prince Sky catches sight of the girls from overhead just as the girls notice their shuttle and go running to where the boys end up having it land. While Prince Sky thinks that greeting the girls could not do any harm, Brandon insists that they need to prioritize their mission and only leaves the shuttle reluctantly since Prince Sky landed it already.

Furious Sky

Brandon being left behind as Sky takes Stella out for a joyride.

While outside, Brandon and Bloom have a rather unexpected reunion where Brandon even tells Bloom that Sky should not have landed the shuttle because of the risks that could come with it. Brandon's patience quickly wears thin when Sky decides to take Stella out on a joyride, directly going against their mission, as Bloom and the Winx remain clueless to the gravity of the situation. This causes him to shout over how Sky is practically a goner since the only one he has with him is "just a girl" who would not be able to lend much of a hand at defeating beasts like Hunting Trolls, and his comments offend Bloom as she thinks that Brandon is underestimating them. This causes the first major argument between the budding couple as the two practically butt heads as they search for their friends, despite Brandon acting like he was ready to compromise.

Eventually, the pair stop to rest on a log somewhere in the woods, where Brandon finally apologizes for offending Bloom when he did not mean to. The two of them begin to bond with Bloom expressing how happy she is at Alfea being able to depend on such wonderful friends and Brandon revealing the true nature of his relationship with Sky as his squire. Their conversation is interrupted by Brandon picking up an emergency signal from Sky's transmitter and the two of them rush back to the training grounds to get Brandon's hoverbike to answer the distress signal, especially after Brandon explains that he cannot call for backup because of Sky directly disobeying orders earlier.

Bloom rushing to Brandon's aid.

Luckily, the two arrive just in time to rescue Stella and help Sky fend off the Hunting Trolls but the boys are quickly overwhelmed by the beasts' brute strength. Brandon ends up being punched to the ground by one of these Trolls and seeing this causes Bloom to become so overcome by her rage that she transforms and blows the Trolls away with her powers. Afterwards, she falls out of her fairy form and rushes to Brandon's aid, assuring him that everything is alright thankfully when he regains consciousness.

By sunset, the Winx are back at their dorm while Brandon and Sky were able to get back to Red Fountain without anyone suspecting them of going against their mission. However, the boys learn that the forcefield cage holding the Hunting Troll was sabotaged which completely frees Prince Sky of the blame. Brandon realizes that one of the king's many enemies had made their way to Red Fountain to kill them and the instructor advises that the both of them, mainly Prince Sky, be more careful from now on.

Unfounded Jealousy

Brandon being skeptical over Bloom working as a waitress.

Though the two are adamant about being seen as just friends despite their obviously budding feelings for one another, the two still go out of their way to help one another, with one notable case being in Issue 5, where Brandon shows concern for Bloom when he sees that she is not with the Winx and is quick to join their search (along with his friends) for her after being told of her sudden disappearance. However, Bloom and Brandon still have their fair share of petty squabbles as, in the beginning of Issue 6, Brandon shows clear signs of jealousy after seeing how popular Bloom seems to be becoming as a waitress for the White Horse Café. Luckily for them, Timmy tries to change the subject which allows for Bloom to talk about all the incredible stories she gets to hear from explorers that come by to rest, like with how Musa is already doing with some other girls. Unfortunately, the two still seem to be sour with each other as they do not even face each other when Bloom has to get back to work and Brandon is still very visibly pouting.

The two do not see each other again until the next day as the Specialists had been tasked with searching the Black Mud Swamp for nightmare monsters messing with the ecosystem. At the same time, the Winx are also on an assignment to collect medicinal herbs for their potionology homework. The two groups find each other in the middle of the Swamp but they cannot afford to hang around, especially not after the Specialists had discovered the presence of a ferocious being lurking somewhere under the Swamp's murky depths.

The boys (excluding Riven) try to warn the girls of the monster's presence, but it is too late as the monster leaps out from the river separating the two groups to attack the Winx. The two groups quickly try to combat the monster but the fight is made even harder when a sudden storm covers the Swamp, which gives them no other option but to flee.

Putting Bloom First (2)

Brandon giving Bloom his cloak to keep warm.

During their escape, Brandon pulls Bloom aside to keep her from being swallowed up by a wave of swamp-water and the two end up on an island in the middle of a large river separated from their friends. Brandon gives Bloom his cloak so that she can keep warm and decides to build a shelter for the two of them to wait out the storm since it will take far too long for Prince Sky and the others to get help.

After getting the shelter and a fire up, Brandon and Bloom sit by the fire for warmth. It is then where Bloom tells Brandon to come under the cloak with her and as the two snuggle up, Brandon proposes that they make up from their little squabble the day before. Bloom agrees and Brandon kisses her on the top of her head as she holds him close. Hours later, the two are found and rescued by Codatorta.

Once night falls and everyone is back at their respective schools, Stella tries to get Bloom to talk about what happened between her and Brandon on the small island since they were alone for such a long time. Bloom insists that nothing happened and changes the subject by asking Musa how everything went for her.

Brandon and Bloom continue to be on good terms with each other and learn little things about the other as they hang out more, like in Issue 8, where Bloom learns that Brandon is not so skillful when it comes to hard labor despite being a squire. Unfortunately, this period in their friendship does not last long as Bloom finds out the shocking truth about Brandon in Issue 10.

Devastation (I10)

Bloom devastated by the truth.

Bloom has been devastated for the past few days after learning that the boy whom she thought was Brandon actually turned out to be the real Crown Prince Sky of Eraklyon. To make matters worse, Sky already had a prior engagement to Diaspro, the Princess of Gems and the girl Bloom had attacked believing her to be another one of the Trix's malicious tricks. Since Sky never told her anything about being engaged, Bloom feels like she was being tricked and used and sadly, one of her friends is also suffering from what was revealed that day, as the boy Stella had been eying turned out to be the real Brandon, Sky's squire.

Bloom and Stella try to stay cooped up indoors but the rest of the Winx are able to get them to join them on a walk by Lake Roccaluce for some fresh air but the girls end up coming across the Specialists near a submarine as they have been testing it out under Codatorta's watch.

When the Winx approach the boys to greet them, Sky tries to talk to Bloom only to end up on the receiving end of her fury when she lashes out at him, refusing to talk to him unless it is under the condition that he cannot tell anymore lies. She then storms off away from the lake, causing Sky to run after her as he tries to explain himself.

Bloom's Disbelief

Bloom refusing to place her trust in Sky again.

Eventually, Sky is able to get Bloom to stop and explains to her that he and Brandon assumed each other's identities as a security measure due to the numerous enemies his dad, King Erendor, has made over the years. Fearing that his enemies would use his son for blackmail or worse, Erendor sent Sky to Red Fountain under Brandon's name and sent Brandon as his personal bodyguard. Sky further reveals how he could not risk getting Bloom caught up in all of this, how he was never in love with Diaspro and how their engagement was made purely for political reasons.

He then confesses to Bloom that things are different with her around as he actually feels happy and he insists that his father will just have to accept that he loves someone else. However, Bloom does not believe that they can truly be together as they are now because Sky is not as free as he thinks he is since his father was the one who made him come to Red Fountain under a false identity. Due to the numerous duties that a prince like Sky would have to deal with, Bloom just cannot bring herself to believe that Sky will be able to decide things for his own happiness, which includes their potential relationship. This begins to form a rift between the two as their relationship is still on the rocks when Stella and Brandon return having made up already.

At the very end of the issue, after Bloom's magic allows for all the Alfea Fairies to defeat a mysterious monster, Bloom decides that she needs to return back to her home in Gardenia as she feels out of place in the Magix. Stella suspects that she may be leaving because of what happened with Sky and the Winx promise to always be there for Bloom before she packs her things and leaves.

Moonlight2

The couple's first kiss.

However, with what happens after Bloom leaves, the two of them do not have the luxury of worrying about the complications of their romance. During the war against the Trix in Issues 11 and 12, the two being each other's well-being and safety above all else. After the events of the war, the two actually share a kiss which ended up being recorded amongst the rest of the Winx's memories in the beginning of Issue 13. Even after having kissed Sky, Bloom still adamantly denies being in an official relationship with him, possibly out of embarrassment. This does not stop her from being more affectionate with Sky when given the chance though, as the two even share a heartfelt moment by a fire during their mission in the mountains to collect moonlight.

The couple cuddling together as they discuss their future potential.

After being separated from Brandon, Stella, Musa and Riven and being taken in by an abrasive woodcutter named Karel who helped them rescue Timmy and Tecna from falling into a river, the group accepts Karel offer to stay at his cottage for the night. It is there that Bloom and Sky cuddle in front of Karel's fireplace and Sky eventually tells Bloom that he believes she is meant to do great things with her power over the Dragon's Flame. Bloom also believes the same for Sky since he will eventually succeed his father and become King of Erakylon, but this causes Sky to worry over whether their destinies may cause their paths to part from each other one day. All Bloom can tell Sky is that she is not sure as even fairies cannot see into the future.

Though, now that their feelings have basically been displayed out in the open, the new couple still has to address one glaring problem: Sky's engagement to Princess Diaspro and, in Issue 15, they are forced to finally confront it when Red Fountain holds a party to commemorate the reconstruction of its new campus.

When the Winx catch wind of the party, Bloom reveals that Sky has been in a strange mood the past few days and fears that she knows why. Her fears are quickly realized when King Erendor and Queen Samara make their arrival as Samara had brought along Diaspro and her parents as a surprise for her son. Diaspro herself also hints that she came with Sky's parents to pick up an old conversation that she could not afford to leave be. This naturally makes Sky uncomfortable and, later, he confronts his mother about bringing Diaspro given what he had told her: that he does not love her.

Samara suspects that this is due to his mind still being focused on Bloom but Sky finds that he is actually unsure as to where his heart lies and he expresses his frustration over always being told what to do. After being reminded of the importance of his engagement with Diaspro and the duties that he owes his people that come with being the crown prince, Sky reluctantly agrees to talk with Diaspro at the Inauguration Party.

Once the Party commences, Sky does as he promised his mother and invites Diaspro to dance as they talk about their current situation. Unbeknownst to them, the Winx had snuck into the Party and Sky uses this as a chance to break away from Diaspro to "honor" Bloom for being the hero who defeated the infamous Trix, leaving Diaspro to feel bitter at being thrown away.

Though Bloom is a tad jealous over Sky being to close with Diaspro, she is still aware of Sky's situation with his parents and happily takes his invite to dance. While they did so, Diaspro tricks her old friend Doradil into helping her "win a bet" by kissing her "friend," Bloom, under a two-hour timeframe.

Eventually, Bloom becomes curious and asks Sky why his parents are more lenient on him being around her, to which Sky reveals that her being the famed fairy who took down the rebel witches made it easier for him to be with her. Hearing this causes Bloom to think that she and Sky can only become a couple now that she is famous and though Sky tries to clarify what he meant, Bloom becomes enraged with him believing that she would never be good enough for him if she stayed as a "common person." Diaspro uses this as an opportunity to cut in between the two and continue her dance with Sky which he reluctantly accepts after seeing how Bloom will not be so quick to forgive him.

I15 Sad Bloom

Bloom moves to a more secluded part of the ballroom to wipe her frustrated tears until she is approached by Doradil and humors him as he flirts with her. Once Doradil offers to take her to another part of the school to see the dragon they captured earlier, Bloom initially tries to refuse his offer but reconsiders at the thought of making Sky jealous.

Once the two make it to the dragon's cage, Bloom immediately starts fawning over the beast as Doradil makes his move. Bloom tries to get him to take her back inside upon realizing what Doradil may be up to but he does not stop until she slaps him. Soon enough, Diaspro emerges from her hiding place to dismiss Doradil and demand that Bloom give up on Sky as a prince would never marry a commoner like how she views Bloom to be. Bloom tries to get Diaspro to challenge her world-view by telling her that "commonfolk" do not exist because everyone is special and that Diaspro should let Sky be free to choose who he loves, even if it is not her, if she truly loves him.

Enraged and frustrated, Diaspro attacks Bloom and accidentally sets the dragon free in the process. Bloom then chases down the dragon as it flies off with Diaspro in its claws, eventually arriving in the land of dragons. Meanwhile, the Specialists and the rest of the Winx hear the dragon's roars, learn from Doradil that he took off with both Bloom and Diaspro, and take a shuttle to pursue it.
