It was a few moments of silence before one of us had the bravery to speak. It was me of course, Pinkie had to much of a shock in her to be the first.
"Is everything alright Zecora? Did you really need to push me?"
She just simply looked at me with a serious face and then she started speaking.
"Curiosity killed the cat, and turns the most sweetest of people into rats"
It took me a few seconds to understand what she meant by that but then it hit me. It was to do with the mask, but I still didn't understand why. In fear I ran off. Zecora can be a nice person but when she takes things seriously you didn't want to end up on her bad side. I remember once when someone attempted to set her house on fire just so someone could sound like a hero for saving her, she simply placed a opposite onto him and he was in the hospital for two week from burn marks.
I had become day light by now with Celestia's sun shining brightly. Funny how when you are ever in the Everfree forest it always looks as if it is night time, sounds like Princess Luna's form of heaven, I giggled a little bit at that moment. That was until I realised that Pinkie Pie wasn't with me.
I ran off in such fear that I forgot to drag her along with me, but she'll be alright, I mean she can nearly define the laws of Physics. No wonder she wasn't hit by the spirit push which Zecora casted on us. I'm sure she will be alright.
The next few days were once again very quiet. I helped out Applejack in selling some apples from a book I read about salesmanship, yeah it has been that quiet. I helped Fluttershy the day after study a new druid spell to help animals eat when they needed to and I finally helped Rarity with some new cloths she was designing for her next fashion show.
Yeah. Everything was very chilled these past few months.
Then, half way through helping Rarity I received a letter, Spike always helped out Rarity whenever he could.
"A latter, from the Princess Twilight?" said Rarity while concentrating on placing in the final gen onto her new dress.
"certainly looks like it." I removed the red ribbon from the scroll and began reading. "My most Faithful Student, Twilight Sparkle. I request your immediate attention at the Royal palace in Canterlot. Meet me at the Royal Opera house on 27th Helm Street. Bring along all of your friends as well for they might be able to help. Princess Celestia." I didn't really know what to say but it sounded very serious. This is the first time ever the Princess has ever called for me or my friends not in the Royal Throne Room. What could have been the incident.
Me and Rarity started to panic and we both ran out the "carousel Boutique" and headed to "Sugar Cube Corner" to get Pinkie Pie.
As soon as we went into the building we saw Mr. and Mrs. Cake Preparing their daily batch of Muffins. At this point, a Blonde girl with yellow, lazy eyes smashed through the roof of the building. She was also carrying a hand bag with letters. It was Derpy Hooves, the only person I knew besides Pinkie to be a little bit crazy, but just like Pinkie, it was inner cent crazy. We all knew that she was different but was not her fault, so we treated her just like anybody else.
"Morning Mr. and Mrs. Cake. Here are yours and Pinkie letter for today" She said with a smile on her face.
"Thank you Derpy, you arrived just in time, we just finished your muffins, I hope they taste just as nice as they were last time?" Mrs. Cake said al if she had not seen Derpy for a few weeks, so sightly shocked and slight happy as well. But the shock must have mostly come from the fact she had just broke their roof. At this point Derpy worked her magic. One muffin just magically disappeared and started a reverse spelled. The roof pieces started floating and assembled back onto the roof. That was Derpy's magical ability, she was a muffin mancer. It's kind of funny really, she can only ever perform a spell by sacrificing a muffin. These spells can be anything from fixing a roof, to putting out a huge forest fire. After this she simply walked out of the door, took out a bubble bottle and started blowing on it. oh, that's another thing, she likes bubbles.
"Pardon me Mrs. Cake, sorry to bother you but have seen Pinkie Pie any where?" I asked slightly confused as to what I just saw.
"I'm sorry Twilight, I haven't seen Pinkie in the last couple of days." She said with a slight worry on her face.
I would have said "thank you for your time" but I was in such a hurry that I just ran out of Sugar Cube Corner and went off to get the others.
I few hours later me, Rarity, Applejack, Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy were in The Royal Opera house waiting for the Princess to arrive.
"What do ya'll think the problem is?" said Applejack worryingly.
"I... I... Don't know." Fluttershy was clearly scared as to what she was going to see.
At this point Princess Celestia walked in with a panic on her face.
"Ah Twilight, your here." I could tell she was panicked about something. "I'm sorry you have to see this but I couldn't trust anyone else but the elements of harmony, especially Pinki... Wait where is Pinkie Pie?" She looked around hesitantly.
"Sorry Princess, but we couldn't find her in time and we thought that you needed use urgently."
"I understand, Fluttershy if you want to, you can not come in. What you will see might scar you for life."
"Oh... okay." She clearly didn't want to go in, especially after what Princess Celestia just said. In fact, even I was scared.
Celestia opened the curtains to reveal in stall section of the theatre. But the theatre wasn't what was worrying. it was what was on the stage.
A Pale Women with grey hair. She had a Cello lying next to her and was lying in a pool of blood. The other thing laying next to her on the other side must have been to symbol of the killing.
