Author's Note: Nothing to do with the story here, but I did want to announce I started doing a movie review series on my blog, starting with the review I did of the recent Three Stooges movie right here. Now, on with the story.
As the game of dodgeball ends, the rest of the class cheers for our victory. I think sending Dumb-bell flying and this right here does a good job of making up for all the hay I went through today. Oh, and making friends with Zeph, Blaze, and Drax is awesome too.
Off in the distance, the coach blows his whistle. "Okay okay, that's enough. Everypony head to the locker rooms and hit the showers."
"How do we pick out lockers?" Drax asks.
"I don't really care. It'll just be first come first serve."
Hearing that, everypony hurries over to the locker rooms to pick out their lockers(no, really?). Upon entering the locker room, we each pull out our combination locks and grab some lockers next to each other.
"Hey, Blue?" Zeph says.
"What is it?"
"What was with that throw earlier?"
"Yeah, I literally saw the wing coming off of that ball." Drax adds.
"Um, well..." I look around the room. Too many ponies here right now. "I'll tell you later."
They eye me suspiciously for a minute before going back to putting away their things. "Well, okay then."
The coach barges through the doors. "Okay, ladies. Time for showering!"
"Showering? As in, infront of everypony else?" Zephyr asks worriedly.
"Well, no duh, Sherclop. Of course everypony is showering together."
Zephyr starts to sweat, not from working out, but a nervous sweat.
"What's up, Zeph?" Drax asks him.
"I can't shower infront of everypony!"
"Why not? It's not like we wear clothes anyway? Everypony can see each other naked already." I say.
"I know. It just feels weird to wash myself in public."
I put a hoof around him. "Don't worry. Zeph. We'll be going in with you. It'll be fine. Right, Drax?"
"Yeah, no need to worry."
He looks at the showers for a minute before turning back to us. "Well, okay."
"That's the spirit."
We finish putting our stuff away and head on into the showers, a thick layer of steam already inside from all the showers already on.
We each turn on some shower heads next to each other and let the warm water enevelope us as it washes away our sweat.
"Hmm, I guess this isn't so bad after all." Zeph says.
"See? What'd we tell ya? Just remember to not drop the soap." I say.
I wink at Drax, him smiling at me in response. "It happens in prison all the time." Drax starts. "You drop the soap, which on its own isn't a big deal."
As he continues, I stand behind Zeph. This is gonna be good.
"But as you bend down to pick it up, do you know what the other inmates do?"
"They rape ya!" I shout as I grab Zeph by the flanks.
"AAAAHHHHH!" he screams. He rears back and bucks me, sending me right out of the showers. Dang, he's got some power in those hindlegs.
I groan as I lay on the floor outside of the showers. Vein smirks at seeing me fly out and hit the ground with a hud.
"I think that's the cue for showers to end." he blows his whistle, signalling for everypony to exit the showers.
I get up on my legs as the others come out of the shower. "Sorry about that, Blue. But that was seriously not cool." Zeph says.
"No, you're right. I deserved that."
"Then we're in agreement."
We grab some towels off of a nearby stand and dry ourselves off with them, discarding them into a bin as we finish drying. After drying, we grab our things out of our lockers.
"So, you guys got anything planned after school?" Drax asks us.
"Nah, I was just gonna head on home." Zeph says.
"Me too. I could use a nap with the day I had."
"Oh, okay. Guess I'll be seeing you guys around then."
"Well, see ya, guys." I say as I walk off with a bit of a wave.
"See ya, Blue." Zeph says.
"Yeah, see ya later."
I walk out of the gym and back into the halls, now filled with students trying to leave. Man, I hate traffic. As I walk through the halls, I have to push my way passed groups upon groups of students.
Just then, a speeding cyan pegasus mare with a rainbow mane and tail runs into me and knocks me down.
She stops for a second to help pick me up. "Sorry about that. Gotta dash!" she says before speeding off again.
I dust myself off in annoyance. "I'll be glad if I never see her again." I say to myself.
(For those who have read my other story: OH THE ANVIL OF IRONY!)
I continue to walk before I eventually reach the school's front entrance and leave. About time.
Before I leave, I see Mr. Charge standing outside and carrying a book. Oh no.
The book hits me right in the face, knocking me to the ground for a moment before I get up. "What the buck?!"
"I'm just properly making sure every student has received a Cloudsdale High welcome." he says smugly. "Good day, Mr. Breeze."
Wait, how did he know my name? Buck it. I'm too tired to care right now.
I sigh as I walk off and back to my house. Yes, walk. Why? Because I want to rest, do you mind? As I walk, I come across a soda machine. I could use a can right about now. I put in a bit and hit a button for Ponsi. The can falls out the bottom and I grab it, quickly cracking it open and talking a swig.
"Ah, that hit the spot."
"There he is, bro!" I hear a voice yell from behind me.
I turn around to see Dumb-bell with a green pegasus colt with a lighter green mane and tail and a cutie mark of a treadmill. He looks to be about Drax's size, only a little older.
"You sure?" he asks Dumb-bell.
"Yeah, he's the one who beat me up during P.E., Treadmill."
Oh buck me.
Treadmill grabs me by the scruff of my chest and hoists me up to his level. "You pickin' on my brother?"
"Me? No no no. Of course not."
"I think you're lying."
I take a look down at the soda can still in my hooves. "Well, how's this for lying?" I pour the soda out over his head.
"AH! My eyes!" he wales. He releases his grip from me to wipe his eyes of the sugary drink.
I try to use this moment to escape, but Dumb-bell body checks me against a wall. "You're not going anywhere."
"No he's not." Treadmill says, now able to see again. He throws a hoof at me, hitting me right across the face.
There's no way I can fight these guys on my own. Somepony help!
Just then, as if he could hear me, Drax comes down and throws Treadmill back away from me by his tail.
"How about fighting somepony your own size?"
Treadmill snorts at him and smirks. "Sure, why not?"
While Dumb-bell stands there looking confused, I sneak up behind him and buck him in back, making his body shoot forward and hit Treadmill. Drax uses this chance to rear back a foreleg and hit Treadmill right between the eyes.
The two brothers fall on top of each other as Drax and I stand over them. "So, you want some more?" Drax asks in an intimidating voice.
The two of them get up as they snear at us. "This isn't over." the two then fly off in defeat. Wow. That was easier than I thought it'd be.
Drax looks over at me. "You all right, Blue?"
"Yeah, I'm fine."
"Good to hear."
"Yeah, it's a good thing you showed up when you did. Second time you've helped me out today."
"Don't sweat. I just hope that bruise on your cheek clears up."
"I have a bruise?"
"Yeah, it's pretty noticeable through your blue fur."
"Aw man. Now my parents are gonna worry over it."
"Well, good luck with that. I'll be seeing ya."
"Yeah, see ya."
The two of us share a brohoof before departing.
School may be over, but the day's not over yet.
Author's Note: Treadmill, believe it or not, is an OC I borrowed from KillJoy. Anyone who's read his story will have to think pretty far back to remember him.
