45w, 1dMy Little Dashie
*Continuation of the same day*
They weren't there! My pictures! My memories! What happened? I started flipping through the pages of my old photo album faster and faster, like a madman, hoping that i missed something. I didn't. They weren't there. My sobs could be heard by the neighbors, if there ever were any. I needed urgent help. These pictures were the only thing that kept me alive, after 15 long years with Dashie. Her sudden disappearance already broke my heart, now this? I can't believe it. I slowly crept up to her old room, the album still in my hands. As i reached the top of the staircase, a sudden thought passed through my head. "What if it never happened? What if it was all my imagination?". That's impossible. It was way too real for it to be "just a fragment of my imagination". I sat down onto the floor, still sobbing. I slowly opened the album again, hoping to find something there. I was right. I did find something. Not a note, not a picture, but a small piece of paper crammed into the cover of the album itself. How could i have missed that? The album was the only thing that kept me alive for the past few days, i knew every detail of every picture! Where'd they go? I don't understand...

CRACK! went the thunder. It is raining now. It reminds me of the day i found Dashie after she flew way from me. The rain, the storm. Everything. I sat in her room, looking out the window and thinking about all our happy times together. No. This can't go on! I'm tearing myself apart with my own emotions. I have a feeling i won't have the strength to live through these next few years without her. I already visited a doctor in the melancholy town. He said my heart is weak, and i can't do anything drastic. The risk of a heart attack is too high! The town. I remember when it was an empty ghost town! Of course all of that changed. Dashie and i had the entire town to ourselves... STOP! i can't think about her! I must not think about her! every time i remember our happiness, her smile, her big, beautiful eyes, my heart gets weaker!

Today, something very strange happened... Not only did the storm suddenly stop, but i actually think i saw a PONY in the clouds! Haha! i must be going crazy! It seemed way too real to be a hallucination. i can't believe i actually saw a PONY or a HORSE in the clouds! This is getting weirder and weirder... First my pictures are gone, now i'm seeing things. Christ! I forgot about my pictures! Not only did i see a HORSE in the clouds, but my pictures are gone! Who took them?! I live in the middle of nowhere! I ran to the dining room table, only to find my album already open on the last page. There they were, the pictures. I don't get it. My life is starting to turn into a game of hide and go seek. Things disappearing and reappearing! I grabbed that tiny piece of paper which was stuffed in the album cover and jerked it out. It had a strange picture on it. It looked like a sun! A big, Beautiful sun...
Later that same day
I knew that marking looks familiar, but i just can't find out why. I saw it somewhere, I think...
A few hours later
I can't believe it! I remember where i saw it! It's Princess Celestia's cutie mark! But why? Who stuffed it into the photo album? Not only did i notice that strange piece of paper in the album itself, but i actually can't find the note which Dashie left me! My life is turning into a mystery... I think someone is trying to tell me something.

Something happened last night. I found my front door unlocked and my window broken. Someone made a junkyard out of my dining room. The only thing gone? You guessed it. My pictures. Gone. Again.
Who would do this to me? Who COULD have done this to me? Not only am i on the brink of a heart attack, but someone is breaking into my house too? This is too much for me.
I found most of my pictures strewn all across the floor. The pictures with Dashie in them, all gone. My mothers painting on the floor, the frame in pieces. That's the last straw. I'm going to catch this monster, no matter what it takes. Why would anyone, or any "THING" break into my house looking for pictures of Dashie, my only daughter, the only joy i ever had in my life? That's when a thought struck me. "If someone stole pictures of Dashie and me, that means they know she exists!". A strange mix of happiness and sadness drifted into my heart. Someone knows of her existence, yet my only pictures of her are gone...

I saw him. I saw the thief. Guess who it was? A horse. A God damned horse, a small one too. How in God's name did a horse get into my house? Why in the world did it steal pictures of Dashie and me? I didn't actually catch him, but I saw him. The horse wasn't from a cartoon, he was real. As real as the hair on my head. As he galloped down the path from my house, i yelled: "Wait!". Then the unexpected happened. He actually stopped. He actually understood the words that crept out of my mouth. He slowly turned around, and i saw something. Something in his eyes. Were those tears? I don't get it! A horse that understands English? A horse that has emotions? This is getting weirder and weirder by the second. I completely forgot all about the mess in my house. I started slowly making my way towards the crying horse. It didn't move, it just stood there, on my lawn. The same lawn that Dashie mowed for her special little job. Many thoughts were racing through my head. Who is this horse? Why is he here? Is he actually the thief? As i got even closer, i could see the reflection of the moon in his big, wet eyes. He still stood there, looking at me. When i got so close, too close for comfort, i heard some sounds coming out of his mouth. You guessed it. He started to talk. When i heard the first word come out of his mouth, my heart leaped up into my throat! "A talking horse! Hah! I really must be crazy!". It said:
Do not fear me my friend
You see, everything must always come to and end
All friendships, love and care
All must end with a prayer.
For when these words fly from your lips
in rhythm with the solar eclipse
with the longest passing of noon
make use of the magical rune
and you will be whizzed to a wonderful world
A world of the sun and the moon
After the horse said those words, only then did i notice it had a pair of wings neatly tucked into it's side. A PEGASUS? WHAT? A real Pegsus? This must have been the horse i saw on the clouds a while ago... It galloped away into the dark, lonely forest, which surrounds my house. That style of speaking...I swear to God i heard it somewhere. Where? What Rune? Did he mean princess Celestia's cutie mark? What words? What's the world of the sun and the moon? And how in the world is there a Pegasus here? On Earth? All these thoughts tortured me as i slowly dragged myself through the doorway. I felt the shattered glass crunch under my feet. I MUST find out what those words mean, or what those words ARE. Maybe they can help answer all my questions. Maybe they can help me get over the loss of my beloved daughter...
to be continued.
