AN: I forgot to add this scene to the previous chapter. So here it is. This scene is not told in first person because Wisp is not actually present. Please don't hate because of the perspective change. Thank you!
Princess Celestia sat in her throne, looking upon the mayors of the Equestrian towns. They bowed to her before beginning their emergency meeting. The rampaging dragon in Fillydelphia was identified as Ragnarok, King of the Western Dragons.
"They've generated mass hysteria, causing thousands of bits worth of damage and possibly accountable for casualties!" shouted the mayor of Coltifornia, "We must declare war against the wretched beasts!"
"Causing more bloodshed will not avenge the dead. Besides, damage is repairable. While I do agree the dragons owe us something, we cannot stir up hate. We are on the brink of war!" replied the mayor of Manehatten.
The mayor of Ponyville merely sat by and listened to the conversation. Princess Celestia listened in anxiety and shame. The bickering of the two mayors increased in volume, until they were screaming their throats raw.
Everypony except the guards cringed at the sound of the Royal Canterlot Voice. They all turned to face a frustrated Princess Celestia.
"We must act and think together, as a nation! So please, be silent. And let us solve this problem." she said with rare tears in her eyes.
She blinked them out of her eyes as she continued.
"It seems that we must extract some sort of cost from the dragons with out angering them..." she paused in thought, "Aha! I have an idea."
The mayors looked at her hopefully.
"I will consult with Ragnarok himself and negotiate an agreement. If all goes well, the dragons will help reconstruct Fillydelphia."
The mayors all nodded in approval, except the one from Ponyville.
"Isn't that risky? What if the king dragon attacks and injures you?" she said with worry.
"Do not worry. I have plans if that situation arises."
Celestia was about to teleport to Vulcan, the home of the Western Dragons, when a guard stopped her.
"Your Highness, this mare claims to have valuable information."
A white mare with a bright orange mane stepped out from behind the guard. Upon seeing the Princess, the unicorn mare ran towards her with tears in her eyes.
"Please! Please, you have to save my daughter!"
The mare collapsed onto the Princess and began sobbing heavily. The alicorn shushed her and tried to calm her down.
"Sshhhhh... Be calm, my little pony. You must be calm so you can tell me of this information you claim to have."
"A-ah. Yes. Just...just give me a moment. There's so much that I need to find out where to start." she said, settling down because of the alicorn magic.
"Then don't speak." spoke Princess Celestia.
She placed her horn onto the mare's forehead. All of the mare's memories poured into the Princess. As to not disturb anything private, the Princess sorted through the memories. In a matter of minutes, she knew everything.
"I understand. I will do anything in my power to return your daughter to you."
The Princess, once again, turned to teleport away but was stopped by the mare, Blaiz.
"Princess. If...if you somehow don't succeed, please give this to her." She handed her a duffel bag.
Princess Celestia smiled kindly, "I promise."
And with that, she teleported away in a glowing ball of gold magic.
