They talked a bit more until the train had finally arrived in Ponyville. As Twilight trotted out of the cart, she saw Charcoal carrying his bags on his back.
"You know you can use your magic instead of carrying all that weight" she said. Charcoal's relapse of his past made him snap
"I'm not using my magic!" he yelled. Twilight was a bit surprised by his remark, and Charcoal shuts his eye a bit before apologizing. "I'm not going to use my magic. I don't care what anypony says...” he says, trotting past Twilight and making his way into town. He makes it to the square, where there is a large abundance of ponies surrounding the area. He never thought that a small town like this would be so occupied. His thoughts were cut short as he is tackled by a pink blur.
"Oh wow, are you a new pony coming to ponyville? My name is Pinkie pie! We have to throw you a party!" Pinkie rambles on. Charcoal is still collecting his thoughts on what just happened to him and he quickly gets on his hooves. She bounces around him and still talks to him to what he thinks is rapid, incoherent gibberish.
"Geez, this pony is in one hell of a sugar rush..." he mumbled.
“That’s Pinkie pie for ya" Twilight said smiling.
"You know her?!" he said, a bit surprised.
"Of course" she said "She's one of the main friends that I spend time with." A white mare approached them and turned towards Pinkie
"Now now Pinkie, no need to be over energetic towards a new pony" Charcoal doesn't know why, but the accent of the mare's voice made him very uneasy. "My, you came from Canterlot? You look very different than most ponies that live up there darling" the mare said. He didn't know whether to take that as a compliment, or an insult.
"Rarity..." Twilight whispered to her "Canterlot is a very sensitive topic for him... Don't bring it up"
"Oh, Sorry darling" Rarity said, keeping herself poised "My name is Rarity, as you already know thanks to Twilight. Who might you be?”
Pinkie pie bounced next to Rarity "OH YEAH I forgot to ask that! So what is your name?” Charcoal looks at the two of them quite awkwardly
"Charcoal..." Rarity says, inspecting his very being "Rough around the edges, yet with a heart of diamond. I like it"
Pinkie's eyes sparkle at the thought "Your heart is made of diamonds?!”
"Uh..." Charcoal has a hard time thinking of what to say.
"Ooook girls" Said Twilight, pushing Charcoal a bit forward "Let's leave him to explore the rest of the town"
Pinkie giggles "Ok! I'll give him the tour!" and drags him along for the ride. A few hours pass and Charcoal is run down by the long tour of Ponyville thanks to Pinkie. Twilight left halfway through, and Charcoal now has to look for his home that was given to him by Celestia. He finally finds his new home; about the same size as his old one, but refurbished and more organized. It was a simple one room, and kitchen house, with an obvious bathroom. It somewhat made him feel like home. He looks out the window, which gives a view of sugarcube corner and the path to Apple Acres further down. His first assignment is down there. Charcoal wonders if he could pull this off on his own.
