"That was a lot of fun," I breathed, lying back on Twilight Sparkle's bed.
"I have some questions for you, if you're able to answer them," Twilight said.
"Okay, I can do that. Ask away."
"Are there aliens or time-travelers or anything on that in your world? Have they ever visited your world? Are you a person of reason? How did that open? Why did it open? Why did it open in that exact spot and not on the opposite side of your planet? What does the void between the two dimensions look like? Can you get between the two dimensions? What caused the portal to open? Why did you come through?"
"Is that all?"
"Yes. I'm sorry if they all just poured out of my mouth. I didn't want to risk forgetting them."
"It's okay. I've always been a girl of reason, yes. I've always openly believed in aliens, espers, time-travelers, other dimensions, and stuff like that while the other half of me knew they didn't exist. I found the rift and wholeheartedly believed in all that stuff and am still a girl of reason. Not to other people, though. They haven't ever visited, as far as anyone knows.
"The rift between the two dimensions opened up because of an imbalance of positive and negative energy. The cause of the imbalance is usually never found out. The gap between the two dimensions isn't any wider than Dash's wingspan, but it goes on forever in each direction. I's pretty difficult to get in, but it's full of voidstone, a rare and undiscovered mineral that is only found in between two dimensions. If you go venturing in, be very careful not to go too far out or you could get stuck in the void forever.And if it opened up in the Burmuta Triangle, a place all the way on the opposite side of the planet, it wouldn't drop down here, but instead in a whole different world.
"I ventured off because I could prove, at least to myself, that all these things I've been believing all these years are actually true. And now I know they are."
"Fascinating. Where did you learn all this?"
"I really love science-fiction. Anyone else have any questions?"
"Me!" Rainbow dash called out. "How does...how does reproduction work on your planet?"
My cheeks turned red, and I was suddenly very quiet.
"I don't think she's comfortable answering that question, Rainbow," Fluttershy commented. "Maybe it's best if you ask a different one."
"I know, I know. I did that on purpose. But I don't have any questions."
"Why did you make an outfit tomorrow and for tonight and what are those peculiar garments for?" Rarity asked.
I wasn't wholly comfortable answering this question either, but it least it wasn't the same one Rainbow Dash asked. "Well, on my planet, humans have...certain places...they need to cover up. Guys and girls are plenty different, so that we can...reproduce. And this," I held up one of the "peculiar" garments, "is called a bra. It goes over me breast. And the other the others are panties. Does that answer your question?"
"Yes. I guess I shouldn't have asked that, sorry..."
"Don't worry, it's okay."
"Do you have many different animals?" Fluttershy asked.
"Cats, dogs, birds, rabbits, elephants, wombats, koalas, alligators, crocodiles, and lots and lots others."
"Do you have lots of fun there where you live? Are there many parties?" Pinkie Pie asked.
"I love parties, but don't attend very many. And I have lots of fun where--"
A shrill "MEOW" and the voices of children interrupted her. Applejack raced down the stairs and opened the door.
"Hi, Applejack," a white little pony with a lalac and pink mane said. "We found this cat and we don't know who she belongs to."
"That's mine," I said, walking down the stairs.
"Who's that?" a yellow pony with a red mane wondered.
"What's that?" an orange pony with a magenta mane squeaked.
"I'm what you'd call a human," I replied. "My name is Isis."
"This is my sister, Apple Bloom, this is Rarity's sister, Sweetie Belle, and this is Scootaloo," Applejack explained.
"We form the group called the Cutie Mark Crusaders," Apple Bloom said.
"Cutie Mark Crusaders? What's a cutie mark?"
"It's a special mark that represents our special ability. The thing that makes us unique."
I yawned. "Don't you guys think you should be getting to bed?"
"But we're not tired!" Scootaloo protested.
Fluttershy flew down. "You guys need to get your rest or else you aren't going into the Everfree Forest with Isis tomorrow."
"Okay, Fluttershy." Sweetie Belle nodded. "Can we have a sleepover?"
"I don't think Twilight has enough extra beds for that."
"I could always sleep on the floor," I stated.
"Are you sure?" Fluttershy asked. "The floor is made of wood."
"I sleep and a dirt floor every night, so yes, I'm sure."
The Cutie Mark Crusaders and the six ponies and I had a sleepover.
What adventures will tomorrows bring? I wondered as I drifted off to sleep.
