New chapter, new shenanigans.
"Oh come on Fluffy! Don't be shy, we just saved you!" The pink pony energetically chimed.
'What is this creature? A talking horse? No no, much to small. Perhaps a pony?'
Before your logic could kick in, another feminine voice came from the doorway.
"Pinkie get away from him! You don't know how dangerous he is! We don't even know if he can talk."
"Oh Twilight, calm down, he's just a scared hurt pussy cat."
'A pussy cat? Can't talk? How dare she! J'lae is a renown warrior of skyrim who has defeated Alduin himself! But does the purple one have a horn? A unicorn... Well, J'lae has seen manly outlandish things but this....'
During your deep thought, the room has been occupied by three more creatures. All of them with unnatural looking colors and emblems on their flanks.
'Hmm... At least they are not Thalmor, but J'lae must get out of here.'
Once again the pink one seemed to appear out of nowhere and invade your personal bubble.
"Why are you so quiet Fluffy? Cat have your tongue?" You couldn't help but chuckle at the ponies joke. Well at least you tried to considering all that came out of your mouth was a cough and even more blood. From your display of "health" it has seemed to put a look of worry on your saviors faces. However another one seemed to have appeared from a hiding spot and rushed to your side.
"Please don't strain yourself sir, you were very hurt when we found you and we almost weren't able to save you."
Though you were skeptical that their motives were pure, you can't help but feel at ease when you stare into the yellow winged creatures eyes.
'Strange, J'lae has never felt this calm and safe. It is almost as if J'lae was a cub again with my mother happily watching over me. But how do they know as to address me as male unless...'
Looking under the covers once again, you saw that the bandages on your torso and leg were the only thing covering you. With your suspicions confirmed you felt your cheeks redden and ignored the building pain in your throat to ask, "Did you remove my loincloth?"
Like that the room was silent, whether it was for the fact that a wild animal could talk or because of your sudden question. Either way, all six creatures looked down at the ground with red cheeks. The orange one was the first to speak up.
"D-don't get the wrong idea mister, you were just covered with blood and we had to clean it off." The cyan one was next to defend herself.
"Yea it's not like we meant to see y-you know..." You can't help but feel bad for the flustered creatures. However there was one nagging question that you had to have answered."
"J'lae apologizes for asking that, but may J'lae ask you something else?" The purple ones ears seemed to perk up at your question.
"Yes what is it?"
"Who and what are you?" Having the chance to answer your question, the unicorn changed her demeanor from embarrassed to ecstatic.
"Oh, well my name is Twilight Sparkle and I'm a unicorn." Having her introduction out of the way she pointed a hoof to each of her friends you presume and introduced them all.
"This is AppleJack, she's an earth pony."
"This is Rainbow Dash, she's a pegasus." All you received from Rainbow Dash was a cold glare.
"That's Rarity, she's a unicorn like me"
'Great another pompous brat...'
"And I think you've already met Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy."
"Oh, umm hello..."
With the introductions out of the way, you now have a new problem at hand.
'How will I get out of here...'
Before formulating a plan that involved using that trusty lock pick and a tomato, Twilight Sparkle spoke up.
"If you don't mind, may I ask what you are and how can you talk??"
'Hmm... J'lae can not let them know how he got here but he can't keep everything from them either. They may turn hostile without answers, and J'lae is in no condition to fight. My name would probably be a good start though...'
"Hey Fluffy you still there?"
Noticing you spaced out, you cleared your throat of any obstructions and spoke.
"Ah forgive me, my name is J'lae who hails from a far away land called Elsweyr. My people are named Khajiit and as you can see, are part feline."
Hearing you'r last statement, Pinkie once again invaded your space.
"Oh does that mean if I scratch behind your ear will you purr?"
"What? No of course not that's ridiculous... What are you doing? WAIT DON'T TOUCH ME THER-[Puuuurrrrrrrr.]"
"Aww who's a cute little kitty cat?"
"STOP. [Puurrrr] SCRATCHING. [Puurrrr] THERE! [Puurrrr.]"
"Pinkie, please stop harming mister J'lae"
"Come on Fluttershy, I'm not hurting him. Look, he's purring right?"
Recovering from the attack, you muttered a thank you to Fluttershy who only hid behind her hair.
"Before J'lae was so graciously interrupted," you threw a glare at Pinkie who only giggled in response, "May J'lae ask a few more questions?" Having another chance to answer more questions, Twilight spoke up.
"Yes, what is it?"
"Where exactly is J'lae?"
"Oh, well we're in the outskirts of Ponyville which is in the Kingdom of Equistria."
'Even their town names are ridiculous. But J'lae is conversing with a talking pony, so things could be worse...'
"As for where we are right now, we're in Fluttershy's cottage." Twilight gave a small wave of her hoof to Fluttershy who only nodded in response.
"Just one more thing." This time Rainbow Dash arrogantly retorted with an annoyed what. Ignoring her outburst, you continued.
Seeing the confused looks on the ponies faces, you rephrased your question.
"J'lae means why did you save me? You have already seen my fangs and claws, indicating me as a predator who could easily kill you with them. J'lae a threat, it would have been much easier to just have left me for dead, yet you still saved me. So, again. Why?"
With your change of demeanor, the ponies started to reel back in fear at the fact they already knew yet chose to ignore. What caught you off guard however was the faint sobbing of Flutershy who slowly walked to your side.
"H-how could we not save you? You needed h-help and there was so much blood! What kind of p-ponies would we be if we didn't try to save you?"
Seeing how your question has only saddened your rescuers, you couldn't help but experience a feeling that you would have preferred to be left in your past. Guilt. Slowly raising your hand, you went to comfort the crying pegasus who tensed at your touch but soon relaxed. "J'lae apologizes for making you cry Fluttershy, it's just that J'lae is not accustomed to this kind of hospitality."
Hearing your excuse, everyone relaxed and became quiet once more.
"Well if that is all, J'lae will burden you no longer and be on his way." Before you could get up, everyone restrained you to the bed.
"What is the meaning of this!?", you shouted in confusion. AppleJack was the first to scold you.
"Are you crazy!? Its only been a few hours since we found you!" Rainbow was up next.
"And what do you mean that's all? You were in a pool of your own blood with a bone sticking out of your body!"
Realizing the only reason you were stopped from leaving was your condition, you only let out a laugh,"Ha! Is that all? Well to reassure you that J'lae fine, watch this." Raising both hands, a yellow light began to emit from them. Slowly the warm illumination enveloped your entire body.
'Sands of time, mother of Nirn. Heal my wounds and mend my bones. Let me feel the fire of life!'
Once completing the spell, you jumped out of bed and ripped the bandages off as if no injury or pain infected your body. Turning around, you saw the ponies mouths agape with widened eyes before they quickly looked down with reddened cheeks.
'Why are their cheeks red? Oh...'
Feeling your own cheeks redden, you grabbed the curtain from a nearby window and wrapped it around your body.
"Twilight, please teleport J'lae to my boutique so I can make him proper clothing."
"Yea, sure thing Rarity." With that you felt Twilight's magic grab you as a flash of light blinded you. Regaining your senses, you noticed that you were no longer in Fluttershy's cottage, but rather in a strange clothing shop.
"Hold still darling while I take your measurements." That was all the warning you got before you felt various parts of your body be choked by a string like substance.
"Now please wait in that room while I finish up some proper attire for you." Doing as you were told, you waited in the room that Rarity pointed out. That is when you noticed a white cat staring at you.
"Hello young one, are you Rarity's companion?"
"WHAT? HOW DARE YOU INSULT MY MOTHER!"
"MY FATHER DID NOT SMELL OF ELDER BERRIES! Wait what are you doi- WHAT, HOW DARE YOU DO THE LITTERBOX AT ME!"
"YOU ASKED FOR IT!" Before you could pounce the arrogant cat, Rarity came through the door carrying a white tunic and black pants.
"Here you are J'lae, consider this my one and only gift for you."
'So that's where this cat gets its nerves from...'
"Yes thank you Rarity." As you put on your new clothes, they embraced your body warmly. The pants even had a hole for your tail.
"Now I think it's best if you head to Twilight's house, its just east of here."
"Thank you much again Rarity." With that you took your leave of the unicorn and stepped out into town... Only to be greeted by screams of terror.
"IT'S A PREDATOR! EVERYPONY RUN!"
