"Ok Fluttershy I'm leaving now. Thanks for the food."
"Oh its no trouble. I'm glad you liked it."
I left towards Twilight's library house to ask how the meeting with Princess Celestia was coming. It was starting to get dark but it was still nice out. It still surprises me how nice the ponies are to me now, they smile and wave and some stop and talk its a very nice change. I even saw the filly from the park but she couldn't talk, she was playing with some friends, but it was nice seeing her again.
I arrived at Twilight's and knocked on the door and a little dragon opened it.
"AAHH! What....I mean..who are you?"
"You must be Spike." I laughed. "I'm Ezekiel. May I come in?"
"Yeah sure uh...let me get Twilight."
"Not necessary Spike, *Ahem*...TWILIGHT WHERE ARE YOU I HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS!!!!"
"Jeez you sound like Luna did that one Nightmare Night."
"Sorry, too loud?"
"Well this IS a library." Twilight said coming down the stairs. "Do you have to be so loud?!"
"Nope but I chose to."
She sighed. "What did you want to ask me?"
"How are the arrangements for the meeting going?"
"Yeah....remember? I wanted to talk with Celestia."
"Oh that meeting right." She looked around nervously
"You forgot didn't you?"
"No I didn't forget I just don't think its such a good idea anymore."
I thought for a little bit and then it came to me. "Ah I see you heard haven't you."
"Heard what?" Spike asked.
"That I attacked Princess Luna in everfree forest."
"You did what!" Spike exclaimed.
"I explained it all to Luna before I was imprisoned."
Twilight tapped her chin in thought. "Your condition?!"
"Yep I blacked out so I didn't have control over my actions."
"Yeah so when is the meeting?"
"Ok now second question."
"Um...Spike do you mind if we speak in private?" Twilight looked at me with a raised eyebrow.
"Uh....sure I...I guess?"
"Ok thanks Spike." he left the room. "Ok Twilight are uh.....are inter-species relationships accepted in Equestria?" I said kind of red faced.
"Well its not unheard of for a griffin and a pony to fall in love." She was both confused and in deep thought. "Why do you ask? This isn't a question I ever thought I would hear from you."
"So If, say a pony fell in love with me and I accepted those feelings and started to be in a relationship with that pony, it wouldn't be an issue?"
"I don't think so? Wait a minute.....Fluttershy!"
I sighed and stayed the same shade of red. "Yep her and I are now together."
"Oh my gosh I never would have thought you would say yes to her. did she finally tell you?"
"No I accidentally guessed."
"I was joking around and I basically said that I knew she liked me and.....wait you knew about it?!?!"
"Well yeah I'm one of her best friends and she came to me for advice."
"And you told her to just tell me?"
"Yeah...might not have been the best idea."
"I see, so there will be no problems then."
"With you and Fluttershy I don't think so and with the Princess I hope not."
"Alright that's all I think.....I'll be going its getting dark."
"Ok uh...bye I'll send for you when its time to leave."
"Ok Twilight bye."
I left and headed back for Fluttershy's house and I still had no idea what I was doing and now I'm slightly nervous about meeting the princess tomorrow.
By the time I was back at Fluttershy's house it was dark and about time to go to bed. Fluttershy was tending to her animals, getting them ready to go to sleep I told her I was back and headed up to the room, she joined me moments later and curled up next to me.
"Whoa we've only been dating for a couple of hours and you're already sleeping with me? You move fast for such a shy pony don't you?"
I laughed. "Relax I'm just messing with you." And hugged her, she sighed in relief. "Besides we've been sleeping together for awhile so it wouldn't make sense if I had a problem with it now." She just nuzzled me. "Well goodnight Fluttershy."
We woke up to a loud pounding on the front door, I grabbed my revolver and opened the door. It was Twilight looking very stressed.
"Finally! you're awake! we're running late!! Put your weapon and get ready to leave."
"Ok....MOM!....sheesh don't be so bossy Twilight." I put the gun back in the room and put my shirt on and stepped out side. "So we're flying huh?" There were two pegasus ponies with armor on and a carriage behind them .
"Yep quickest way to get to Canterlot is by flight, now come on!"
"Right, bye Fluttershy see later." I said and she waved.
We where up in the air now, I didn't like it to much but if it was quickest way it was for the best.
"So Ezekiel.....did you and Fluttershy do anything last night." Twilight said looking at me suggestively.
"What do you mean Twilight?"
"Oh nothing never mind."
"If you wondering if we had sex last night then no we didn't."
She turned bright red. "Well.....th....that's g..good t...to here. But you could have said it differently."
"Yep I could have but I didn't."
There was a long pause after that until I decided to break it. "I thought this was going to be quick."
"We're almost there, just be patient."
"Alright......Hey are you nervous?"
"A little bit. You?"
"Yeah just a bit."
We stayed silent the rest of the way there.
We landed in front of a set of big doors (I assumed) led into the throne room. The doors opened and this place was huge like a proper castle almost like the ones back in my world. The walls were white as was the floor save for the red carpet and there were guards everywhere, and then suddenly trumpets sounded and a pony a little bit bigger than Luna and instead of being dark blue she was the purest white appeared. Twilight bowed and urged me to as well and I wanted to show respect so I did.
"Greetings Twilight and you are Ezekiel I presume?"
"Yes Princess Celestia you are correct. It is very nice to meet you."
"You may raise Ezekiel. I sense that you're nervous."
"Yes your Highness just a little bit."
"There is nothing to worry about. Please follow me."
I whispered to Twilight. "Hey do you know where shes talking us?"
"Her private quarters I think."
It was about five minutes of walking until we reached Celestia's room.
"Here we are. Now then Ezekiel, Twilight have a seat, there is much to discuss." we both sat down. "First and foremost Ezekiel, you have been forgiven for attacking my sister Luna. I have been informed that you have a medical condition that makes you susceptible to black outs which make you act on your most basic instincts without your consent. We are working on a cure for that now, so do not worry you will not be charged."
"Thank you Princess, tis a great relief."
"I am also aware of your efforts to make the ponies in Ponyville your friend despite you being from a completely different world, in which I am very glad your doing so well."
"Thank you again Princess, I assume you know all of this because of Twilight?"
"Yes I have asked her to give me reports everytime something good or bad happens."
"I see so you also know about mine and rarity's little fight?"
"Yes and how you went out of you way to make her your friend."
"Is there anything you want to report to me yourself?"
"Yes.....but I have a few questions, If you don't mind."
"Go right ahead."
"Thank you. First, is there a way to get my back to my world?" I looked over at twilight who was looking at me very confused.
The princess looked shocked but recovered quickly. "Yes I believe there is but why do you want to go back? From what I understand you very much disliked your own world. Am I correct?"
"Yes princess you are, but there are a few things that I still need to do at home."
"I see well I can have the spell ready in a few minutes. Are you planning returning permanently or temporarily?"
I found myself getting a headache and getting very angry. "I hate it there!" I stood up. "What do you think?!?!" I growled
"I see the spell will be ready soon meanwhile was there something else?"
I collapsed onto the chair I was sitting in and looked at Twilight whose jaw dropped at my sudden out burst. "Ugh yes your highness. I wanted to know if inter-species relationships were acceptable in Equestria."
"Oh and whys that?"
"Princess Celestia I report that the Element of Kindness and I are together."
"I see.....that's wonderful news!"
"So that's a yes?"
"Indeed it is though we never had a human so this will be different but anything can work as long as you to work for it."
"This is good news thank you Princess. Also one more thing."
"What is it?"
I leaned over to Twilight and whispered. "I'm going to ask her." she just looked at me confused. I turned back to Celestia. "Yes um *ahem* h...how would sex work?"
Twilight's jaw dropped and her face turned bright red. "I cant believe you just asked that!"
Celestia even blushed. "Oh my well um...I don't quite know."
I just laughed. This was just to funny.
The princess started the spell and in the mean time I went back to Ponyville to grab my Revolver, holster and a few extra rounds from Fluttershy's and by the time I got back the spell was finished but Twilight saw the gun. "Why in the world do you have that thing here for?!"
"Like I said I have somethings to take care of this is just in case some of those things go wrong ok?"
"I....if you say so."
Celestia stood in front of us behind her was this a portal like thing.
"The spell is ready Ezekiel."
"So just step through?"
"Yes we will re-cast the spell in an hour."
"Ok got it."
"Good luck and don't get hurt."
"Don't worry Twilight I wont." and then I stepped through
One second later I was in my backyard in the same spot I was in before I was going to....well you know. It was night time I peeked in through back door window, and no one was awake. which was good because I had to see an old friend off. I closed my eyes and tried to meditate to see if I could contact Grim Jr. that way. "Hello? Jr.?
"I see that your back on earth Young Ezekiel. Wonderful."
"I am here to return you to the grim reaper."
"And a few other things I'm sure but I'll leave that to you. It seems you have it all figured out." He smiled.
"Yes I do." I smiled back. "Your free but I want the parting gift you promised."
"Oh but of course but you'll need to learn how to use it and we'll start now but only practice. I'll set up different scenarios and tell you what to do ok?"
"Then lets get stated." He summoned a dark shrouded creature with red eyes. "This is a Shadow beast It will take the form of who commands it. I command it so its shrouded and has some of my features." He held out his hand and so did the creature which were both skeletal. "Now watch as its form changes when I relinquish my command over to you." It walk towards me and its form changed and eventually it turned into me. "Now you command either by thinking or actually telling it what to do. Here's a practice dummy I disguised as your dad. The scenario is you're pissed at your dad and you two just had a physical confrontation. What do you do?"
I stared at the target, it wasn't hard to imagine it because it happened so many times. "Kill him." I said coldly and the shadow beast ran up to the target and ripped it to shreds "Whoa!" was all I could say
"Excellent now here's another scenario, you have two targets sleeping lets just say they're your parents what do you do if you don't want to wake one of them?"
"Kill them silently" I thought and it took form of a snake and quickly slithered up to the bed and then took back my form, made its fingers into claw and plunged them into both of the target's necks. "Cool."
"As you can probably tell by now if you tell it what to do by verbally commanding it wont use stealth but if you think about what you want it to do it will, understand?"
"Alright Young Ezekiel. One more thing, you will only be able to use it once here and in the land of ponies you will only be able to use it in the everfree forest. Got it?"
"Ok I'll be leaving now."
He vanished and the I heard an unfamiliar voice "Master, its time."
I came back back from my deeply meditated state to find that the shadow beast was beside me.
"He didn't say you could talk." I said.
"I no like him so I didn't talk to him. You will be nice, he was not."
"I see so you will obey me with no problem?"
"Don't ask for stupid things then yes."
"Master its time for revenge on parents while its still dark."
"I agree but I have a plan it requires that we wait until my dad wakes up." I smiled as I set the whole thing in motion.
Revenge shall be mine!
