"Twilight are you sure about this Sir velric? we hardly even know the pony and hes trying to drag us all the way across equestria."Rarity complained as she and sweetie belle gathered the last of their things.
"No.I'm not.In fact I hate everything about Velric.He killed fluttershy for helping the sick."
Rarity paused and pushed Sweetie belle out the room with her magic before slamming the door."He didn't!"
"Oh but he did Rarity.He said that thoes ponies we're dead but they seemed perfectly fine...From a distance anyway."
Twilight tapped her hooves on the ground."So are you sure about taking your sister? I mean,wouldn't be safer with your parents?
Oh no.If what you say is true Then me and Sweetie belle need to get as far away from Equestria as possible.No telling what would happen if I we're to leave her."
Twilight nodded opening the door to Rarity's boutique. "We need to leave in ten minutes.I guess she shut the door and Rarity sighed.
"Sweetie belle. come on lets get moving." The filly didn't answer instead there where Thud."Sweetie belle?" Rarity approached the door.
"CUTIE MARK CRUSADERS ZOMBIE SLAYERS!" Sweetie belle, busted the door open.She cutie mark crusader talent show outfit.
"Sweetie belle!" Rarity fell on her flank and Sweetie belle started running around the boutique.Rarity shook out her mane pulling a brush from her saddle "Sweetie belle just cause were in a crisis dosn't mean that you can wear your mane any type of way"
"But, Rarity." Sweetie belle whined.
There was a snicker from the corner of the room and they turned to see Sir novel."Sorry.You said buts, that's hilarious."
Rarity stomped her hoof down, "And just who are you?"
He bowed "My apologies, Madam Rarity. That was no way to act in front of any mare let me start over.Ahem, My name is Sir Novel of The queens archers.Pleasure to meet you miss Rarity." he lifted his head back up, as well as you Sweetie belle."
"How did you get in here anyway" Rarity asked easing up a bit.
"I came in when miss sparkle left sorry if I didn't make myself known sooner.But." He snickered slightly, "We really should get moving the others would be waiting for us by now.Are you ready?"
"Opal?" Novel asked scraching his mane with his hoof."If Opal is a white cat Then you needn't to worry about her."
"And why not!?" Rarity shouted.
Novel forced a smile on his face "I kinda...ate, your cat."
"You what!" Rarity exploded and started to throw random things at Novel, "You ate Opal. How could anypony be capible of such a thing!"
Sir Novel held his bleeding nose something, had hit it. "Simple, I'm no pony."
Rarity stopped, "whats that supposed to mean"
"It means I'm not a pony.I'm the Ultapony indisputably the the most powerful being in all of existence." He put his hooves to his side and looked to the ceiling.
"Get out!" Rarity shouted throwing another book at his into his face.
"My apologies!" he became a blur as he walked toward the door. It never opened but it was clear he had left out of the room.
Alright fillies and foals are you ready to get going? any last minute pleasantries that need to be taken care of?"
"Yea!" Rainbow dash said angrily "If you don't tell me everything about you I'm not going."
"But you must come. Loyalty is hard to come by well never find anyone to take your place." His voiced cracked slightly and he covered his mouth.
"Did his voice just crack?" Rainbow dash almost started laughing when Velric, Stomped his hoof.
"Enough of this charade Velric, I am Sir novel of the queens archers. This is my feather brained apprentice who has lost his use to me. Not to mention critically njuring the element of kindness." his voice was disembodied but boomed all around the ponies
"But she was infected." Velric pleaded '
"Feather brain!" Novel snapped, Harmony cant be infected and it's because of that it can't cure"
All the ponies eyes snapped to velric.He shrugged, "accident."
"If you wish to punish him for harming your friend then go ahead and kill him." Novel grabbed hold of Velrics cloak and pulled it off. With it went the small amount of facial hair and the sense that he was vanishing.
"But hes no bigger than applebloom." Applejack said eyeing the small pony in front of them.
"Recite it, Velric!" Novel's voice boomed once more Velric had tears filling his eyes as he motioned his nouth to the words he was supposed to e saying. "Now!" Novel shouted
"I Pledge my allegiance to the queen, she is the ruler, the protector of the land.I am her protecter and happily give my life to serve her.If the queen commands it I will happily lay my head in on a chopping block for her to.." He paused looking to Novel with pleading eyes
"Get on with it!" He snapped
"For her to behead" he bowed to the five ponies, "you are my queens please do with me as you wish. I give you my blade."
He pulled a small dagger from the holster at his flank presenting it to Rainbow dash.
"Here is your chance. You can kill him now and no punishment will ever come to you, any of you."Novel replaced the hood over his head.
Sweat and tears poured down Velric's face but he never once looked up at any of the ponies."I.." None of the ponies knew what to say here was a small pony who was ready to give his life.
"Stop." A very faint voice came to the ponies ears.It was Fluttershy all wounds gone from her body only sign that she had been through anything was the dot on her forehead."I forgive him."
"Fluttershy!" everyone looked at the pony who was said to be dead."What happened to you?"
"I saved her." Sir Novel said cutting her off.
"Yes he took the injuries onto himself.?" Velric's eyes widened as her turned to Novel.
twilight walked up to Novel and removed the hood from his face. A large hole spread across his forehead it was only slightly bandaged."Doesn't that mean your infected?"
Novel nodded, "I didn't turn into a zombie if that's what you want to know.but I carry the virus."
There was a sharp crying noise and they all turned to rainbow dash who now held Velrics dagger blood fell from the edgeof the blade but Velric stayed in a bowing position."I'm sorry my queen!" he screamed out in pain.Rainbow dash, had sliced open the bottom of his hooves.
"I dismiss his oath." Velric carefully put his hooves down.then snatched his blade back from rainbow dash and his cloak off the ground.
"I'm going for a walk" Velric pulled his hood over his head and disappeared into the thin air.
"How does he do that?" Twilight asked curiously
"It's the cloak.."Novels voice had dropped to one lower than fluttershy's.
Novel backed up away from twilight in an attempt to get away "are cloaks were made from fabric enchanted by star swirl the bearded himself their one of a kind.They make us look older also give us, well me, a scary voice."
He disappeared for a moment then reappeared with Velric
"Apparently hes scared of you girls and needs me to talk to you for him again." he glared daggers at rainbow dash, then snorted "I apologize for my brash behavior .Is their anything else you all need before we leave?
They shook their heads.
