Chapter 2 - Where the buck am I?
“Ugh...why is it so bright...” I manage to say despite how much pain I am currently in.
“Hey guys. It looks like he is awake” says a creepily familiar voice.
Now where have I heard that voice before. I swear it sounds familiar. My body aches so bad. I must be in a hospital but where...
I succeed in opening my eyes, but what I see makes me shut them again.
“Don’t be scared mister, we ain’t gonna’ hurt ya.”
I knew it, I’m in Equestria. Oh dear celestia... I think as I have no clue what do next, until it hits me...
“WHERE’S MY STUFF!” I yell as I jolt upright catching a full view of the mane six, all of them were staring at me as if I had just drank 10 energy drinks... Concern...
:”It’s over there” as Twilight sparkle points near the window I see all of my stuff the same way I left it.
“Thank Celestia...” I say lazily as I plop right back into the resting position I was previously laying in. Holy crap, I’m in equestria. I guess now I have to make a name for myself otherwise the ponies will get suspicious I think trying to make up a name for myself...
How about Pick Strings...? maybe I don’t know I keep thinking about random stuff when one of the ponies say (in one of the most quiet voice I might add...) “Um mister, what is your name? You know if you don’t mind me asking...”
Well, moment of truth time... Oh no what if they get suspicious, WHAT IF THEY DON’T LIKE ME! I panic as everyone is still staring at me (and when people are staring or paying lots of attention to me I get really shy...) oh no not staring... they might as well call me shy strings.. hmm, Shy Strings...
“My name is Shy strings.” I say as quietly as I can.
“Excuse me darling, but could you say that one more time a bit louder.” Rarity asks
When I’m about to say it the second time I see fluttershy looking at me with the cutest damn smile you will ever see. I try to look away from fluttershy but I just can’t, until she speaks up and says “His name is Shy Strings”
Both Fluttershy and I are smiling at each other.
Everyone, and I mean everyone in that room was now looking at Fluttershy and me with D’awwww faces, this makes me blush up as red as an apple.
I hear footsteps or should I say hoofsteps approaching the door, turns out it’s the doctor. In fact... that’s that same doctor from that episode where rainbow dash reads daring do...
“Alright mister” exclaimed the doctor “You don’t seem to have any records here, or as a matter of fact anywhere. We checked Canterlot medical patient archives and you weren’t in there
Crap Sam think, I can’t lie because then Applejack will get suspicious. Come on! think think! THINK
“ Um, well I am a traveling guitar player and this is kinda’ my first time I have been in more than one spot this long” Nice sam, that sure saved you there hopefully he doesn’t ask more questions like that...
“Alright, but now comes the matter of payment” Says the doctor with a still a smile plastered on his face...
“Don’t worry, Doctor I will take care of it. I mean come on, we find a pony outside the everfree forest burned having no money at all or clear sense of where he is at. The least we could do is pay for his hospital fees and let him sleep in the guest bed at the library for a few days” Says twilight, Wow these ponies really are nice
“Is that ok with you Strings, if I can call you that.”
“Yes Twilight you can call me Strings, I would be very grateful if you would do that.”
“Alright, I guess you are free to go then! oh and about those burn on your back just keep that bandage on for I would say a good 3 weeks” Exclaims the doctor with one of the most genuine doctor smiles.
And that’s when Pinkie Pie happened...
“ OH WOW A NEW PONY I’M GONNA HAVE TO THROW YOU A PARTY, IT’LL BE CALLED THE “ HEY YOU JUST GOT DUMPED IN THE EVERFREE FOREST WITH BURNS ON YOUR BACK AND GOT TO PONYVILLE PARTY”
“ IT’S GONNA BE SO MUCH FUN, YOU AND ME PARTYING ALL NIGHT LONG AND DRINKING HOT SAUCE AND EATING CUPCAKES “
Something struck the wrong chord in my brain when she said "cupcakes"...
“PINKIE!” I shouted as loud as I could physically muster.
“Pinkie you can throw me a party can we just do it later today, I kinda’ want to get all set up at twilight’s tree.”
“How did you know I lived in a tree?” She said maliciously, everypony back to staring at me.
Think brain, you got this AND WHAT’S WITH ALL THE THINKING TODAY! hmm......... I got it!
“Who hasn’t heard of Twilight Sparkle the mare that owns a tree library and saved the world of Equestria twice...” I said with a smirk
smirk... Oh no... what happened to george?!?!
“Oh that’s tru-”
“Was there anypony else that was with me when you found me?" I asked wondering if my best freind was still alive.
“No, why was there someone else with you?” she asked with a worried look on her face.
“Nah, just wondering”
GREAT, THIS IS JUST GREAT! I lose my best friend and go to Equestria PLEASE tell me it doesn’t get worse than this
“Alright we should probably get back to the tree now so you can get situated in ponyville” Said twilight.
Think I gotta’ find a way to call them by their names...
“WAIT!!!!” I exclaim.
“Hmm?” they all say together.
“What are each of your names”? Nice one Sam you have done well.
“I’m Rainbow Dash, best flyer in all of Equestria!”
“I’m fluttershy!” Wow. Did she actually say that loud?
“And I know Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle already. Alright I’ll see you guys around” I say as Twilight and I walk to the tree house.
“Is it just me or is Shy kind of cute?” asked Fluttershy
And that’s when Rarity, Pinkie, Applejack, and RD all dropped their jaws at the same time.
