Hello, Im finally back and ready to update this story. I know ive been gone for a while and thats because of all the schoolwork suspending me from updating. Also, the NJ ASK is coming up soon, so for that week, there won't be any updates. But until then, enjoy the new chapter.
Chapter 2 – Friend or Foe?
Third Person POV
As Rainbow Dash spotted the old oak tree in the distance known as the local town library, she soon began to descent slowly while still having the robot in her very own grasp. Once nearing the building, she then realized that what used to be a healthy, happy tree was now a burnt-up, crumpled old pile wood. Although a majority of the tree itself was severely damaged, It was still able to hold ponies within it.
When Rainbow Dash safely landed on the ground, she placed the robotic pony right next to her. Soon, the metallic pony turned his head towards Rainbow, then towards the badly burned wooden door that was the only thing blocking them from the inside of the library.
Rainbow Dash quickly and fiercely began to knock on the door of the library before any of the outside enemies luring around the city could find them and obliterate them. Suddenly, the door opened to reveal a purple unicorn with a messed up mane and tail.
“RAINBOW DASH, WHAT ARE YOU DOING OUT HERE?! QUICK, GET INSIDE BEFORE THEY FIND YOU!“With that said, Twilight pulled Rainbow Dash inside the library as well as the metallic pony too. She then quickly turned around and kicked the door behind her closed and making sure it was fully locked. She wanted to insure that no intruders could break into her own home.
Going over to the table over at the side, Twilight reached her mouth over to the candle-holder after lighting it with a match. The candlelight wasn't that big, but it was bright enough for Twilight an the others to see the environment around them.
When the darkness covering Rainbow Dash's eyes was distinguished by the bright light of the candle, she began to look around the library. Books were all on the floor and hanging off the shelves. Papers carrying all sorts of data were scattered all around. Even some of the windows had slights cracks or gaps in them. Before Rainbow Dash could even ask why the library was in a frenzied state, Twilight bursted out with questions.
“Why are you here Rainbow, and not at your own home in Cloudsdale with your parents?” Once Twilight had said this, a vision appeared in Rainbows head as she remembered the brutal scene of her families fatal death. All of a sudden, Rainbow Dash burst out crying, hot tears streaming down her warm face.
For being one of the smartest and most talented unicorns in Equestria, Twilight knew what was wrong and felt sympathy for her rainbow mane friend.
“Oh, I’m so sorry Rainbow Dash. I didn't mean for you to get upset. “Twilight said in her most calm voice, trying to comfort her.
This whole time, the metallic pony had just been standing there as if he was glued in place, with his eyes fixed onto the two mares.
Twilight soon noticed the robot starring at her and her friend and, trying to change the subject to prevent Rainbow Dash from crying anymore, asked her another question.
“Umm,” Twilight questioned. “Who is that?” She asked while pointing one of her front hooves toward the robotic pony while having the other front hoof over Rainbow's shoulder.
Rainbow Dash soon wiped the tears away from her eyes before responding to twilights question. “Oh, he’s the whole reason why I came over here.” Rainbow Dash replied, with a hint of sadness and sorrow in her voice. “I don’t exactly know who he is, but I thought you might know what to do with him.”
All of a sudden, a large explosion outside went off, causing the ground beneath the ponies and robot to shake violently from the impact.
“QUICK!” Twilight yelled. “GET TO THE BASEMENT, Its safer and more stable down there” She shouted out towards Rainbow Dash and her friend. With that said, The two mares made a beeline for the door leading to Twilight’s basement right before Dash turned around and noticed that the metallic pony behind her wasn’t following them at all. He just stood there, looking at the ground, continuously showing no emotion. Because of this, Rainbow grabbed the robot by the arm and began to drag him across the already burnt wooden floor of the library.
It was a very hectic experience for Dash when she had to pull a few hundred pound piece of bolts and scrap metal down the inclined stairs. When she made it to the bottom, Rainbow Dash quickly hit the floor, breathing heavily. Just because she was a fast flier, didn’t mean that necessarily she was strong. Regaining her energy and conscious again, she stood up on all four hooves and then noticed that she, Twilight, and the robotic pony weren’t the only ones in the basement. Eyes of all different shapes and colors stared at Rainbow Dash and her metallic friend. She soon noticed that Rarity, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, and Applejack were also concealed in the same room as she was. Some hid in the dark corner away from any of the monsters dwelling on the surface, while others just sat there and waited for the nightmare to be over. Shockingly, they were not the only ponies in the room. There were also different kinds of colts and stallions in the room as well, yet Dash had never met them and had no clue who they were. There was a silence between the group of ponies, and having the silent robotic pony in the room made it no better.
Twilight realized that nopony was getting along or even communicating, so she was the first to start up a conversation.
“Rainbow Dash, allow me to introduce you to some survivors I found a while ago.” With that, she extended her hoof towards a green Pegasus with a messed up dark green mane. “This is Evergreen.” After introducing the two, Evergreen got up from his sitting place across the wall of the library and began trotting over to Rainbow Dash.
“Please, call me Snake.” He exclaimed. Once Rainbow Dash had taken a closer look at him, she realized that he had some battle scars around his face and back. Rainbow Dash then understood that he was probably one of the ponies engaged in the war outside who was lucky enough to survive and find refuge.
“Moving on, we also have Seamus.” Twilight mentioned as he pointed to a dark black pony with a black mane. “When he got up to introduce himself to Rainbow Dash, Rainbow was taken aback that he not only had the horn of a unicorn, but also the wings of a Pegasus. Rainbow Dash knew that alicorns were extremely rare and were born only once very thousand years, but she could not believe her own eyes that standing right in front of her was an alicorn, the rarest of the ponies species. Rainbow Dash also realized that he was the only colt in the room, with everypony else being a stallion or a mare. Rainbow Dash also could tell that he was somewhat shy since he refused to introduce himself to Rainbow Dash.
“Seamus isn’t really known to communicate that much.” Twilight exclaimed. Standing by Twilight soon approached a dark blue stallion with a dark brown mane. With the horn he had, Rainbow Dash could tell he was obviously a unicorn.
“The names Thunder Ice.” He said. He seemed like a nice stallion, but Rainbow Dash noticed out of the corner of her own eye that Twilight was slightly blushing when he had passed by her. Rainbow could soon tell the future between them.
“Finally.” Twilight said in a somewhat low voice, “There’s Ramond.” She said pointing with her hoof to a tan Pegasus with a red mane and tail. Rainbow Dash could see he was leaning against one of the walls of the library, standing on only his back two hooves. Rainbow Dash knew that he would come in handy for the future, so she accepted him as one of her own friends.
After everypony in the room was introduced, everypony in the room had the same exact question on their mind. Who is the robotic pony?
Yay, suspense. In the next chapter, they will be finding out who the metallic pony really is and why he didn’t plan on killing all of Ponyvilles civilization. Also, I am still looking for new OC and song requests too. Until then, please review my story. The more reviews, the more effort I put into my story, the better it becomes.
