Silence filled this dark sea. The various brightly lit gases were spread across this barely stuffed space. A number of asteroids brushed against my face. My enhanced vision could make out a dim green sphere in the distance. I knew what it was and I wanted it. So I slithered through the nothingness till it sat in front of my presence. This rock contained life, ripe for the taking.
I opened my massive jaws and slowly fitted the planet into my mouth. Sensing danger, the life forms before me released their defense force. Numerous battle cruisers of isosceles triangular shapes, followed by minuscule metallic objects ascended from the celestial body. All those little souls began firing barely noticeable crimson laser. Their attempt to assault only tickles my gargantuan skin. Insignificant creatures; if you wish to meet thy death first; then I shall oblige. I shall play with you inept beings.
Without any effort, I created a singularity inside that cloud of attack ships; it was entertaining watching them struggle for freedom. Those that did escape; I exhaled an ice blue beam in between them and dragged the destruction to the left. My strike lead the beautiful orchestra in the music of explosions. The soothing sound of death, it pleases me. I turned my attention to the carriers and battle cruisers. I think I need a little iron in my diet right now, and these ones are bite size.
Lunging forward, I captured about twenty pieces of my appetizer. With a quick crunch, I could taste the inner juices of my organic meal. The explosions created by their hard shells only flambé and made the taste perfect. In the corner of my peripheral, I spotted the largest of the planet’s guardians focusing energy into a particle cannon located on top of the ships’ hull. They beamed their flashlights against my neck and one of my scaled wings. Little nuisances; I wrapped part of my serpentine body around their flag ship and constricted it until that metal tube became space junk. Now that their leader is gone, the rest of these worthless entities are in a disoriented turmoil. I readied myself than swung Apocalypto which lay attached to the end of my bohemian tail. The massive appendage swatted those nugatory machines like the inferior flies they are. If they weren’t destroyed by my deadly weapon, then the impact with their moon surely killed them. And if there were any survivors; I exhaled the burning intensity of a super nova on them. I averted my gaze back to the prize that was rightfully mine.
“Kaozu torei madadei! Fu’n kokoru’j reiku noytu zwe na kaza’poreq! (You should feel lucky creatures! I hunger and this deity has chosen you to be my feast!)” I so viciously grinned. I eclipsed this planet of their sun; shadowing this world from the darkness of my mouth. I latched my fangs and sealed my food in an eternity of pain. For a lesser planet, it does have some size to its shape. The rock and its life cracked under the force exhibited by my jaws. Their deaths taste so delicious! With a final push, my meal crumbled inside and I began chewing. When the last ember of life burned out, I swallowed the remnants into the endless void that is my stomach. DEATH! I WANT TO TASTE MORE DEATH! I shifted my gaze to the next solar system and headed towards that galaxy to spread more of my wrath and chaos.
I threw myself forward gasping for as many breaths I could capture. I haven’t had a dream like that in a long time. No…that was no dream…that was a memory, a memory of my first life.
“That’s not me. I’m human now….I’m human now!” I shuttered. I could still taste the flesh and blood I consumed. I hated it!
The new day’s sunlight shined through the circular window that was placed ten feet above the ground, on the wall facing me. The light gave a relaxing warmth, one that said it was going to be a good day. I decided to take that as the sign projected from the sun; so I cleared my mind. It was so no negative thoughts could influence the outcome I may experience while I’m out and about.
I lifted my jacket off my chest, which Dash had so carefully placed on me during my nap. She probably did it like that so she wouldn’t wake me from my deep slumber. Before I slipped the overcoat back on, I noticed two things. The first thing was a strand of multicolored hair that took refuge along the inside lining. I pluck the little thing out with no idea on what I should do with it. I felt like if I just tossed it aside, that I would reject part of that cyan pegasus. But I also felt a bit stalkerish if I were to keep it. During my time here and the time I’ve spent with Dash; I can feel Rainbow taking a place in my heart. I…I want to be with her…if that makes sense. An idea hit me; instead of throwing it away or keeping it, I’ll give it to nature. That so a bird may use it as part of its nest or so the world may use it however it pleases.
I proceeded towards that window frame which still shimmers the pleasing heat of today and unlatched it. I waited for a quick breath of the sylph and released the strand into the wild. Now that the first noticeable thing was gone, I lead myself back to the second one. Still on my overcoat was Rainbow’s scent. It’s not the smell of the kind of equines from the universe I came from. In fact none of the ponies smell like those horses; these ponies actually smell like normal humans. But Dash….hers is different. Dash’s aroma smells like a fresh spring field. I’m not sure if it’s in her personality to wear perfume or something similar, but it was pleasant.
What sounded like scratching steps, drawn me back to reality. Turning to the noise, I discovered a small purple lizard with green spikes, walking down the spiral staircase. Something about this reptile seems somewhat familiar. Wait, I know what it is. This thing is actually a dragon. The dragon finished rubbing its eyes and finally took notice of me. The expression it wore made it seem like the dragon’s mentality was processing something.
With the sudden snapping of the reptile’s clawed fingers, it began. “Hey, you’re that thing Twilight and the others rescued.” His voice sounded like that of a young boy’s; a really young one.
“Yeah, the name’s Inrei.” I replied. I wasn’t sure where to take this conversation; I’m not sure how to talk with kids.
“And I’m Spike.” His name is Spike and he has very noticeable spikes……..I’m not going to bother explaining the creative thought process to myself. But hey, it is his name and it’s not my place to question that. And now that I think about it, everyponies name that I’ve heard, closely resembles something about them. An awkward silence followed afterwards. I decided to be the one to break this silence with some small talk.
“So Spike, what are you doing here?” At least it’s something to start with.
“Well I live here.” He answered. If he lives here, then would that mean that he owns the place? If that’s true, then how old is he? My original thought was that Twilight Sparkle was the librarian.
“Then are you actually the curator? What about Twilight? What does she do?”
“That’s actually Twilight’s job, and she also lives here.”
“Then what is it that you do?”
“I’m her assistant, but aside from that, I’ve been her friend ever since she hatched me.”
“Hatched you?” What?
“When Twilight was a filly, she had to hatch me using only magic for a test.” Okay, that answered a lot of questions I was about to ask. Since she hatched him, then I wonder; would Twilight consider their relationship as motherly or childhood friends?
“Say, Twilight said you could perform magic; is that true? Because she seems pretty ecstatic about it.” Spike asked. The tone in his voice made it appear he was also slightly interested. I confirmed that I did have powers to him. “Ha, I bet it’s nothing compared to Twilight’s.” He boasted.
“Such a big statement to say to someone you don’t even know.” If he wants to challenge my abilities like that, then I’d be happy to prove him wrong. Not sure how Twilight would feel about it though.
“Well do you know that Twilight is Princess Celestia’s prized apprentice? And that she managed to stop a rampaging Ursa Minor. That has to say something.” An Ursa Minor? The star formation? Well I must say that is impressive, but still…
“Just because one can perform such feats, doesn’t mean that they are the best.” I going to go ahead and put this on the record; I find this argument amusing. It’s the fact that he assumed I wasn’t as magical is what I find funny. Going back and forth between a child who has faith in his friend; that’s not a bad thing, it just shows the two are really close.
“You shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but knowing you Spike, you wouldn’t end up reading the book at all.” A female voice teased from above.
Descending down the stairs this time is Twilight. The unicorn’s protruding horn is currently encased with the pink glow of her magic. If it wasn’t for the light around her mane as well, it would have seemingly appeared that her hair was fixing itself. I wonder, could ponies get bed head?
“Come on Twilight, you have to admit that your skills extraordinary.” The little dragon begged his friend to admit he is right.
“You know it’s not good to boast Spike. And besides, I can sense a tremendous amount of magic within him; maybe even far more suppressing than Princess Celestia’s. He also has full control this power.” Twilight stated while defeating Spike’s chance of winning the argument. It was probably for the best; wouldn’t have wanted an unneeded confrontation of that breed.
Since I know the correct route to Applejack’s farm now, I plan to make an earlier start. “Twilight, if it’s okay with you, I’m going to depart-“I stopped myself when I heard and saw Spike belch out an emerald green flame that materialized into a scroll……What did I just witness?
Using her telekinetic magic, the mare unraveled the document with this galvanized glint in her eyes. From the way she scanned this piece of paper, it had to be important which only raised my curiosity about it. So I planned to sneak a peek.
I leaned back into a corner of the wall that is partially enwrapped by shadows. When I felt contact with the surface, I literally merged into the darkness. Soon afterwards, I leaned forward this time and found myself behind Twilight and in a decent view of the wording. In the corner of my eye, I could make out the shocked expression of Spike’s face as he perceived a portion of my abilities. It gave me a mental chuckle, but that was interrupted by Twilight. Unintentional revenge for the moments in the hospital.
“We’ve been invited to Princess Luna’s birthday to which Princess Celestia is hosting in Canterlot. I haven’t spoken to either of the princesses or my brother in a while; we’ll be able to catch up.” Twilight announced gleefully. “I could also introduce you…to…the Princess…Inrei?” The unicorn said looking around in front of her; guess she never noticed. Thanks to Spike pointing at me, Twilight found me; his face changed to an expression that stated he was still contemplating on what I just did. I greeted her confused look with a quick wave.
“I didn’t see you walk by…another one of your powers?” She asked as she levitated a notebook and quill over. I confirmed it to her, but I also told her that I planned on heading to Sweet Apple Acres now.
“If it wouldn’t be too much trouble to ask; may I tag along? I want to ask you some questions.” The lavender pony asked with a pleading and yet pleasing smile.
“Sure, shouldn’t be a bother.” There was no humanly way possible I could have said no to that smile. It was so sweet that I think I may have contracted diabetes.
“While you two do that, I’m going back to bed.” Spike added while ascending to the second floor.
As revealed by the window frame, today is as pleasant as yesterday. The sun bathed the land in its graceful warmth. Wind gently shifts in between the various buildings and trees; making today really enjoyable. I wonder how Rainbow and her team do the day’s forecast. I’m pretty sure Equestria doesn’t have the equipment that the advanced worlds use to predict weather formations. I should ask next time I see her.
“So tell me Inrei, when you said you could perform just about anything with your magic; just how extensive are your abilities?” The horn equine began.
“Well, it’s as I said. As long as I put my mind to it, I can accomplish that feat. Give me a few examples and I’ll tell you if I can carry out the task.”
“Could you using growing magic?”
“Like increasing in size? Not entirely; I could create an outer shell made from any substance and augment it however I please.”
“No that wasn’t what I meant, but that is note worthy. What I meant was; could you accelerate the growth rate of organic matter?” Twilight said correcting her question.
“Something like that? Yeah I can; there are actually a few ways I could increase the growth of natural materials.” Our little walk continued with the ever learning mare asking me more about my capabilities. I answered them all while also elucidating how I can perform it. I managed to reply each question as knowledgeable as I could. For me these were easy questions since it’s just discussing experience. However that simplicity soon left when Twilight asked that one question.
“Tell me, since you have this incredible power; are you capable of creating life?” She asked with much curiosity.
“Through procreation, yes I can.” I jokingly answered. Twilight’s face let out a slight blush as she went silent. I had a hunch she wasn’t expecting a response like that.
“You know that’s not what I meant.” The lavender unicorn said dispelling my playful side. She was still blushing from the thought.
“I know…I know…To tell you the truth, there is only one person who can create life and resurrect the dead using only his powers. I know because I’ve seen him do it.” The activity died down in my voice a bit.
“That’s amazing; I suppose with that type of magic, he’s a great healer. I bet you wish you had that kind of capability as well.” Twilight said with some enthusiasm. I stopped in my tracks. I did wish I had that power; maybe then I would have been able to save the ones I lost. But that’s not possible now, and the one who does have that ability is my enemy.
Twilight noticed my lack of presence and saw she left me behind. She returned and began. “You do wish you had that power…so that you could revive all those humans you killed. Is that correct?” Her belief is wrong, but it did make me think. If I did have that ability then, then maybe I could have redeemed myself during that dark historical moment. But that is too late. I remained silent.
“Inrei, I know you already explained why your joined your world’s army, but with your powers, why didn’t you just choose a different career?”
“Well back when I joined the military, I couldn’t even use my powers nor was even aware about it. It laid dormant within me until I was selected to be part of a project to create super soldiers. What we didn’t know was that the experiment actually awoken my powers. I didn’t even learn that fact till I began my travels. In the end, even though it was my powers that ended the war; so much was lost in the process.” Like last night, I could sense Rainbow eavesdropping again. I turned to the sky where I felt her presence and when I spotted her, she flew off, leaving behind a rainbow contrail. I could make out the expression on her face before she fled; it looked worry and like she didn’t know how to proceed. I’m not sure if I can tell everypony the full truth yet.
Eventually taking a break and settling down from our journey to Applejack’s place, Twilight and I made a quick stop at café. The customers’ area is situated outside the building leaving me to guess that inside the structure is mostly made up of the kitchen. The tables were designed in such a fashion that at first I mistook them for toadstools. The seats weren’t actual chairs, but bales of hay and flatten out tree stumps. And lastly, because this is an equine society, the food is arranged for their tastes. Twilight got herself a daffodil and daisy sandwich while I was fortunate enough to find baked apples on the menu.
“Sorry if there isn’t much to appease your appetite, Inrei.” The purple mare started.
“It’s alright; this snack is pretty good by itself.” I replied. It truly is scrumptious; the taste of cinnamon and fruit didn’t overpower each other, and its taste was about even with Pinkie’s and Dash’s prank cupcake.
“Tell me Inrei; do you like of Rainbow?” Twilight asked suddenly. She had to ask when I took a bite of my meal. She probably planned that. Because of the unexpected question, I felt a slight blush pop up and experienced a coughing fit due to slightly choking on the portion I bit.
“I guess that answers my question.” She smirked.
“Why did you ask that?” I said clearing my throat.
“Ever since you came here and regained consciousness, the two of you have gotten really close. Especially considering what you two did to each other yesterday.” The pony added.
“Yeah…I guess we have.”
“Why is that? You know she can be a bit rambunctious at times.”
“I guess it’s because she reminds me a lot of someone I use to know.”
“Really? What happen to this human?”
“She…..She died a while ago…” My voice sound empty when I mention this. It became silent for while after Twilight heard that. Her ears dropped and she tilted her face down. And I could see the regret in her eyes.
“Sorry, I didn’t mean to bring up a subject like that.” She declared.
“It’s alright. You didn’t know about it.” I gave the equine a pat on the shoulder to give her some ease. But her expression still seemed worrisome.
“Inrei…have you had a hard life?” Her words hit me deep, so deep that I couldn’t say a single thing. Instead…I simply nodded.
The rest of time spent eating was quiet until we finished our orders. Luckily enough, our moods lightened up during our last bites. The two of us, studied each other’s gestural movements and facial expressions carefully to confirm that we felt better mentally and emotionally. It was awkward when we realized what we were doing to each other. But at least it made for a quick laugh.
“My, my; Twilight and Inrei. What a pleasant afternoon to find you two.” A familiar and regal sounding voice stated. Turning our attention to the source, we discovered the pure white unicorn before us.
“Hey Rarity; how are you?” Twilight happily asked. It was good to see some serenity returned.
“I’m absolutely fine, darling.” She graciously replied.
“So what are you doing currently?” I added. I’m not fully sure what Rarity does, so it would be nice to find out.
“I’m heading to the market to purchase more fabrics and threads.” Fabrics and threads? Thinking back when we met in the hospital, she did stitch my clothes back together. In fact she even made them as good as new. So I wonder; is Rarity a seamstress?
“Hey Rarity, what is it you do for a living?”
“Why I am a fashion designer at the Carousel Boutique.”
“Really? That explains why you were able to expertly mend my clothes. Speaking of which, I forgot to thank you for that while in the hospital. So thank you Rarity, I really appreciate it.” I really did, especially consider what I currently wear is a hand-me down from the man that took care of me during my time in the orphanage.
The snow white unicorn gave me a hearty smile. “It was the least I could do. Oh that reminds me! Could you visit me at the Boutique later this week?” She stated. That reminded me as well; Rainbow did say that Rarity wanted to talk to me about something. I guess this would be it, but what?
“Sure, no problem. But may I ask why?” I didn’t have a problem with making the arrangement; I just preferred to know what is planned.
“You most certainly can. The reason why I ask for your presence is because I wanted to discuss your ‘attire’ situation.” Her tone seemed to have directed itself towards my clothes; almost like she was literally pointing at them right now, but she wasn’t.
“What?” I declared quizzically.
“Don’t get me wrong. It’s just that even though the design and material is absolutely marvelous; you cannot simply go about wearing the same thing every day.” She did have a point. To tell the truth, I’ve been wearing this same set up ever since I began my quest for Reiku. Of course when the time came, I did wash it even though it was the least of my worries.
“And your color tone doesn’t evenly appease each other. Your neon green hair can’t seem to complement your black suit.” Okay, that was a bit insulting. I have had my current appeal for so long now, that it has become normal for me.
“To let you know, my red eyes and green hair aren’t my natural colors.” I informed the two unicorns. If one were to pay close attention to the tone of my voice, you could tell that I’m slightly ticked from her statement.
“They’re not your natural colors? Then what was the original?” Twilight asked with much curiosity.
“Originally my hair and eyes were a dark brown.” I responded.
“Something of that hue would complement the black better. Why did you change the natural color?” Rarity added.
“I didn’t do it willingly. When I came into my powers years ago, the change was so great that it mutated my DNA and created the genetic alteration you see now.” I explained. Twilight looked shocked at the news while Rarity had an expression that looked determined.
“If that’s the case, then I apologize for my earlier statement. However, I think-No; I know I can create and embroider something to match your body’s style. Your anatomy will be challenging, but nothing to raise too much trouble.” The radiant mare declared. Rarity just took on the duty of sewing together her greatest product while I just received a free pair of exquisite clothes. From that, I think she just amended herself, but the question now is…Who shall thank who?
An hour has past and the three of us said our goodbyes for the day. This time I didn’t get lost as I traveled to Applejack’s farm. Sweet Apple Acres is vast in its land with very little structures that stand. In the center of the farm land is what appears to be a red barn that was converted into a house. Surrounding that building were chicken coops, pigpens, and vegetable gardens. And what flooded the area was a sea of apple trees; there had to be every type of apple here. And past this ocean of fruit, sat another barn; this one looked as it has seen some history for the wood is worn and the paint is chipped.
“Well howdy Inrei.” A farm girl’s accent said.
“Hey Applejack. Impressive apple orchard.”
“Thank ya for the kind words. So wha can I do for ya?”
“I was hoping to find some employment. Do you require some assistance?”
“Now that you mention it, it is Cider Season tomorrow. We could use the extra help.” The tan mare lead me straight into fruited forest. At the base of each tree sat numerous wooden buckets; there were more empty ones than filled. I noticed a deep red muscular earth pony carrying and dragging containers that were stuffed to the brim with apples to a cart. From the amount of ease he was putting into his work; this colt must be powerful.
“Big Mac, c’mere for a sec.” Applejack ordered the worker pony. “Big Mac, this is Inrei. Inrei, Big Macintosh. Inrei here is gonna be assistin’ us by collectin’ apples.” Big Macintosh inspected my stature and probably mentally processed the data, determining wither or not I’m cut out for the job. While he was this close, I noticed two things about him. The first thing is the colt’s cutie mark, which is a green apple. And the other thing is Big Mac’s size. Unlike the other ponies I’ve seen, this colt seems to be a foot taller, roughly bring his head slightly past my chest; and I’m 6’3. He finished examining me and nodded his head in approval.
The farm girl set me up with a tree, but seeing how that this is an equine population, raised the question. “How do you pick the apples anyways?” From what I learned in that history book Twilight gave me, aside from the princesses, unicorns are the only ponies that can use magic.
“That’s easy.” Applejack gave a quick buck to the tree and within a second, all the apples fell into the strategically placed buckets sitting at the base; not a single apple missed. I found it impressive enough, that I actually gave the mare a quick applause. I didn’t even realize that was possible.
“Now you give it a go.” The tan pony stepped to the side and watched me. Shouldn’t be a problem; I stood in front of the plant and decided I would try the same feat with a kick. Now taking in consideration of the amount of force admitted followed by velocity…If I just calculate it by……No one said math would be involved! Just do what Applejack did.
I positioned my right leg and brought my foot to the center of the tree. When I made contact, the curve of my foot hooked around the neck of the wood and I threw myself to the next tree. In an instance, I used the palms of my hands to push myself off this plant and to the next. From there and landed on my feet and kicked off to the ones on my left and preformed a cross strike on the two nearest to me. There I flipped to the apple tree that stared right across from the starting one. I slammed into that plant and wrapped my arms around the neck so I could spin my mass to create enough speed to throw me to the next topiary. When I made contact with the next set of stock, I greeted them each with a single punch. I continued this for the next fourteen apple trees, making a total of twenty-three trees. 1.53 seconds; I would say that is good production time. I landed on the soft blades of grass which was soon followed by the raining of apples and the sound of wooden buckets thumping underneath the hard food.
I turned to find Applejack scanning the area as she searched for me and is still currently mesmerized by the falling of numerous fruit.
“Inrei…How in tarnation did you do that?” Her expression seemed a mix of both shock and amazement.
“I can move really fast. In fact I can reach speeds of 186,000 miles per second.”
“That’s…fast! That’ll be good business!” I think I just found a permanent job.
“It should be sufficient for that Cider Season…Speaking of which, what is Cider Season?”
“Well once every year, the Apple family picks out the best of the bunches and turns it into cider for the whole town to enjoy. It’s hoof lickin’ good!” She said with a quick swing of her front right foreleg.
“Wait, if it’s an Apple family tradition, then why did you let me help? Usually such traditions don’t allow outsiders.”
“You’ve become a good friend of Rainbow’s. Any friend of hers is a friend of mine; that goes true with the other ponies.” When she said that, I smiled. “And I mighty appreciate the help Inrei.”
“Sure, not a problem.” I replied. I felt content…maybe I’ll consider this more than just reimbursing the ponies; I should consider it a family experience with my new friends.
Time flew by and dusk finally began creeping in. While I worked, I felt the watchful eyes of three fillies. One is an earth pony with a golden blonde coat and red mane that had a pink ribbon tied to it. The second one is a unicorn with a very light gray coat and a split of a mulberry and grayish rose hue for her mane. And the third one is an orange pegasus that had a fuchsia mane. One other notable thing about these three equines is that their flanks are baron of a cutie mark.
Occasionally while I collected the apples, I would see the three sitting in a roughly refurbished tree house. They weren’t too shy of my presence since they would wave back with their hooves when I waved. However they didn’t seem interested in talking to me…..yet. From what it appeared like, the three fillies were observing me.
“Should this be enough?” I asked while loading the last bale of apples on the cart.
Big Macintosh circled the little wagon, counting all the buckets. “Eeyup.” Big Mac simply answered.
“This has been a rather productive outcome.” Applejack declared while harnessing herself to one of the carts using her mouth. As on cue, the red colt and I got on the other carts and started pulling them into a barn that had an old treadmill juicer stored inside. As we transported the fruit for processing, I averted my gaze towards the twilight sky. Just as beautiful as very. It looks like fire, not one of destruction, but a controlled flame; one you would use at a campsite. As I painted the scenery into my memory, I spotted something unusual with one of the clouds above. As the clouds were turning into a darken fog, the odd one looked like it had something blue on top of it. In fact with my eagle like vision, I could see multicolored strands on the cyan figure.
“Is that…..Rainbow Dash?” My comment caught the attention of both ponies who in turn also noticed the object.
“That’s Rainbow alright. It’s a good thing she’s slackin’ off today; the weather ponies had scheduled a light drizzle this afternoon, and that could a made things a little annoying.” Applejack said with some relief. Wait a minute; the weather ponies scheduled rain today?
“Don’t you mean the weather team predicted rain?” I said with some confusion.
“Nope.” The red colt replied.
I’m confuddled now. “How is the weather formed in Equestria?”
“Why the pegasus ponies always schedule the day’s weather. They do their weather sciency stuff and push the cloud formations together to create rain, storms, snow, or sunshine. If ya really wanna know how it works, I suggest askin’ Twi or Rainbow.” The mare answered. So if this is true, then it means that there is no natural weather here. I wonder how well that works in the end.
As I lifted the containers into the barn, I witnessed a lime green pony rummaging through the buckets, separating all the seemingly perfect apples from the bruised and worn out ones. What really caught my attention about this equine is that she seemed really decrepit as aged winkles swarmed her body like an incest colony. Her light stone gray hair is set up in a bun with a few random strands sticking out of it. And her cutie mark looked like a pie….That made me hungry now. Her words, even though sounding slightly confusing; seemed to made positive and intelligible intent towards her work of the apples. Wise knowledge behind a senile citizen; that must make for interesting conversations.
“If it wouldn’t be too much a bother Inrei, but would you be kind enough to assist tomorrow in the sales as well?” Applejack asked, breaking my inner thought.
“Not a problem boss.” The pony let out a sly, but appreciative smile for my comment.
In order to assure myself in being on time for Cider Season, I decided to turn one of the apple trees into a temporary pillow. It wasn’t too bad. In fact it was rather soothing. Reminds me of survival training. Nothing, but my hard cushion and the gentle wind being my blanket. I closed my lids due to the relaxing sensation and fell into the darkness. Suddenly, the gentle ringing of a bell chimed through the air. That euphoric feeling left as an empty sensation entered my being. I recognize that sound……This is bad!
