"Time to wake up, Vinyl." Octavia said to the half-asleep with unicorn.
"Wh....wha?" Vinyl mumbled, groggy from her bad night’s sleep. "Oh, right. Time to get ready for our first day!" Vinyl exclaimed. She hoped out of bed, excited. She then walked over to her slightly larger bed, and opened her bag. She retrieved soap, a brush, shampoo, her toothbrush, her glasses, and her toothpaste. "Ready, Octavia?" asked Vinyl.
"Almost, but not quite. You go on ahead." said Octavia.
"Alright, see ya later." Vinyl said. She began to walk towards the door, using her horn to open the knob. She walked down the hall, taking a left through the orange and white tiled halls. She trotted up towards the bathroom doors, but stopped when she heard a familiar voice.
"Hey! Can you believe we got that filly of a stallion’s trumpet! What was his name again?" Said the pony she realized was Greengun.
"It was that weak one, Noteworthy I think." Said the one she believed to be Ravenfeet. Suddenly, she heard them coming closer, and ducked behind a locker.
"Aye, what class do we have next? Let’s get it over with." said Greengun.
"Wait, Greengun. What’s that over there?" said the one named Crowcut, as he pointed in Vinyl’s direction.
"Oh no, oh no, oh no!" Vinyl whispered to herself, going into panic. Suddenly, Greengun walked up to Vinyl.
"What do we have here, eh?" Greengun asked his two goons.
"Looks like someone was spying on us, Green." said Ravenfeet.
"Aww, do you have a crush on us, girl?" Vinyl's expression turned from feared to angry.
"Excuse me?" said Vinyl.
"Don't worry, everyone has a crush on me." He said, pointing to himself, a smile of pride on his face. Vinyl stood up, her stuff on the ground.
"Aww, look. She is even showing off." Said Greengun. This sent Vinyl into a rage. Vinyl turned around, and sent her legs strait into the stallion’s face, sending him flying back.
"I'd never have a crush on such a monster of a horse!" Vinyl screamed.
"Why you little!" said Greengun.
"You little what?" said Octavia with a smile.
"Oh, now you have your friends come save you, kid?" Greengun spat the words at Vinyl.
"Yes, she does. Nothing wrong with having friends." Said Lyra, on the other side of Greengun. "You wouldn't know." Greengun looked around at the three mares.
"Come on Crow and Raven, let’s get outta here." Said Greengun. The leader and his two goons pushed by Lyra, and walked down the hall.
"Hey, um...Is that yours Lyra?" Said Octavia, pointing to the trumpet the trio left behind.
"No, you Vinyl?" Said Lyra.
"Me? Play the trumpet?" Vinyl said. "Please." she exclaimed sarcastically. "I heard them say they took it from someone named Noteworthy." said Vinyl.
"Noteworthy?" Said Lyra, her face lit up.
"Do you know Noteworthy, Lyra?" asked Octavia.
"Of course I do! I may have a . . . small . . . crush on him." Her face turned a bright shade of red. "We should return this to him after school. I'll take it back to my room." Said Lyra.
"I think we should start getting ready . . . school starts in a half hour." said Octavia, pointing to an analog clock on the wall.
"Oh my gosh!" said Vinyl, as she picked up her things, and ran out of Lyra’s room.
Vinyl walked in and trotted into the nearest shower. She closed the curtains, and turned the water on. The white unicorn let the water run down her body, soothing and warm. She stood there, for a few minutes then began to put the shampoo into her bright, electric-blue mane and tail. She lathered the thick liquid onto her mane, using the brush to get in between the thick hairs of her mane. She then took out the soap, and lathered her body, flank, back and front legs with the help of her horn. She let the water run down her body for a few more minutes, before stepping out of the shower. Vinyl took a towel from the rack, and dried herself off. She then walked over to the sink and layered toothpaste onto her brush and began to brush her teeth. Vinyl finished and spat the rest of the toothpaste into the sink and took a large gulp from the running sink water, shlushed it around in her mouth, and spat out. Time for class, she thought to herself as she walked out the door and down the hall. She returned to her room, and took a small pack from her bag. She filled it with a paper with her classes and time's on it. She added pencils, and a pen, and then strapped the small pack around her leg, slightly above her hoof. She walked out the door, and took the paper with her class times on it and began to read. All of a sudden she heard a voice from behind asking what her first class was She spun around and relized the mare was her own roommate.
"Don't scare me like that, Octavia!” Said Vinyl, frowning at Octavia "Looks like I have Computer Composition first." Replied Vinyl. "How about you?"
"Oh, I have Classical Cello first." Replied Octavia.
“Alrighty then. I’ll see you tonight when we go and take back you know what from you know who." Said Vinyl.
"Right. I will see you then!" replied Octavia. The two roomies went their separate ways, down the halls to their respective classes.
Octavia walked down the hall towards her first class when she noticed two mares following her. She suddenly recocnized Lyra. "Hello Lyra, who is your friend?" asked Octavia.
"This is Viola. She was my room mate in the school I use to go to." Said Lyra.
"Oh, you both came to the school? Isn’t that a stroke of luck!" Octavia exclaimed. "I assume since you both were following me, you must have Classical Cello first as well." The two mares nodded and walked down the hall with Octavia.
Vinyl walked down the hall towards her first class. She was looking at all the cabinets containing lots of trophies. She took a right turn and bumped into another pony. "Oh, I’m sorry!" said Vinyl. She looked up to see who it was, and she was amazed to see the face of Crowcut.
"Oh, I'm sorry! I didn't mean to . . . oh, wait!" Crowcut said, stuttering as he saw who it was. " I’m so sorry about what we did before . . . I truly am." Crowcut said. Vinyl felt like bucking him sky high, but decided not to as she saw a look in his eye. He was being sincere.
"Why would you do something so mean to someone then?" Asked Vinyl. Crowcut had a tear running down his cheek now.
"Greengun and Ravenfeet use to bully me every day until I had enough . . . I started doing it too and after awhile . . . I found myself caught up with them . . . it’s not what I wanted at all." Said Crowcut. "I really am sorry though. I guess I’ll see you around." he said, holding back tears. He began to trot down the hall.
"Wait!" Vinyl said, but it was too late. He was already to far down the hall to hear, and before she knew it, he was gone.
