Ditzy doesn't like bullies. They make Ditzy sad, they call her things like "Clutz" and "Derpy Hooves" and though sometimes it's hard for Ditzy to understand the bullies' words, they still hurt Ditzy's feelings.
But Ditzy likes muffins, very much. She likes muffins very much. Especially with sprinkles, but even without the sprinkles the muffins taste pretty good. After a day of working as the mail mare, or a moving mare, or in fact doing whatever she'd like to that day, Ditzy finds it nice to sit and eat her muffins.
Sometimes Ditzy doesn't have time, or maybe she'd too tired to make them, so she goes to sugar cube corner. They have the best muffins! When she goes there, a pink pony is always happy to see her! Her name is Pinkie and she is nice to Ditzy, so Ditzy likes Pinkie. She gives Ditzy muffins! Fat muffins, skinny muffins, tall muffins, short muffins, big muffins and small muffins! All the muffins she wants!
Ditzy likes to sit down in her chair in the corner, she likes to watch the ponies as they eat their own muffins, she's glad they don't eat her muffins, but when they eat their own, Ditzy likes to watch. A lot of the time they talk about things that confuse Ditzy, things like money, Ditzy knew that money was what you gave to get muffins, and even other stuff! And sometimes, the nice ponies you give the money, give some of it back! It's never as much as Ditzy gives them, but maybe it's just because they like Ditzy!
Ditzy likes people who like her, so when they don't look, Ditzy puts some of the money the nice pony gave back, back again. She puts it on the counter, and waits in her chair and watches. She likes what they do when they see the money, they smile, Ditzy likes it when ponies smile, it means that Ditzy did good!
Ditzy walks a lot. She likes to walk. When she's in the sky, Ditzy can get confused, she forgets which way is south and which way is east. So Ditzy likes the ground plenty. When she walks she goes to the farm, she likes the smell of apples, but she doesn't stay long, the orange pony that lives there scares Ditzy a little. She's really loud and Ditzy doesn't like loud noises much.
Ditzy likes to walk by the school, little Dinky goes there. Dinky is Ditzy's daughter. and Ditzy loves her very much. So Ditzy likes to visit the school to see how her Dinky is. Dinky is very smart! Ditzy thinks she is the smartest pony there is, she can do maths, and spell, and do all the things Ditzy can't do! Ditzy likes watching Dinky, because Dinky is smart.
When Ditzy visits, Dinky smiles and runs to her. Ditzy likes to hug Dinky, it makes her feel warm inside, like the feeling from muffins, warm and toasty, Ditzy likes that feeling. But soon Dinky needs to go back inside for class, and Ditzy would like to follow her, but she can't because she doesn't go to school anymore. So Ditzy waits for school to end, to walk Dinky home.
Other mares come and wait along with Ditzy, they laugh and smile, but not with Ditzy, they frown at her, stare at her, but when Ditzy looks back at them they look away. Ditzy doesn't mind, they're just curious is all! So still Ditzy waits. Soon, school's over and the little ones come out. They go and give their mommies hugs, which makes Ditzy smile, she sees that those mommies also get that warm feeling inside, she can tell by their smile. That makes Ditzy happy.
All the little ones leave, but Ditzy still stays, she stays because Dinky isn't out yet. Ditzy wonders where Dinky is, but she waits, Dinky will be there soon. After a while Ditzy begins to worry. Dinky never stays in school. Ditzy begins to worry something might be wrong, might be wrong with Dinky. So Ditzy begins to walk around the school building.
Soon, Ditzy finds Dinky. The makes Dinky happy, she thought Dinky was hurt but she'd just with friends. Ditzy watches as Dinky stands against a wall and talks to her friends. They both look funny to Ditzy, one has big funny green glasses, and the other one has a funny mane and wears a little crown. Ditzy smiles, she thinks they look funny.
After a minute, Ditzy notices that Dinky isn't smiling. She doesn't look happy, she looks sad. This worries Ditzy, so she decides to get closer. She wants Dinky to be happy not sad. Ditzy hears the other two, they call Dinky "Blank flank" they point and laugh at Dinky. Dinky looks like she might cry. Ditzy doesn't want that! Ditzy jumps in and stands in front of Dinky, she wants to protect her little muffin!
Ditzy hears Dinky sounding surprised. "Mommy?" but Ditzy stares back at the other two little mares, which is hard for Ditzy with her eyes. But she works hard, and she gives them the look she sees other adults use on little mares. Ditzy is being an adult, Ditzy is making sure these two are punished!
The two laugh. Ditzy doesn't understand, this look is meant to punish bad foals, not be funny, if it was funny, Ditzy would use it on Dinky. Ditzy frowns, she wants to make these two know they've done wrong. Today she wasn't Ditzy the mail mare, or Ditzy the mover mare, she was Ditzy the hero mare!
The pink crown wearing filly begins to speak. she speaks simply, and Ditzy can understand, but she doesn't like the words.
"Oh look Donkey, you mommy Derpy's come to rescue you." Donkey? Ditzy looks to Dinky, her name is Dinky, not Donkey, why does this filly call Dinky that? It's not nice, Ditzy can tell by the way Dinky looks sad. Ditzy didn't like names, at least the wrong ones that were mean! They hurt ponies feelings and that was wrong. The little filly had called her Derpy too, and that wasn't nice, it hurt Ditzy's feelings and she didn't like that!
Ditzy tries to speak, but she is interrupted by the filly with the glasses.
"It looks like she's looking at her nose!"
"And the floor at the same time! What a freak!" Adds the little pink crowned filly. Ditzy really doesn't like that! She takes a step back confused. What had she done? She had only come to see if Dinky was safe and she wasn't so Ditzy tried to help. Why were these fillies so mean?
"Well are you gonna say anything?!?" they ask Ditzy, who tries to speak, but she's all nervous so her words come out all wrong, she doesn't mean to make them wrong, they just are, and that makes the fillies laugh even more.
"Duuuuhhhhh... Deerrrr, stop daht now! You're so stupid!" the one with glasses says in a horrible voice. Ditzy knows that voice, it's the voice a lot of ponies used to use when they made fun of Ditzy when she was little like Dinky. They also like to make Ditzy feel sad and unhappy. They liked being mean, so they made the voice that made fun of Ditzy.
Ditzy backs into the wall and looks around. Why aren't any of the other parents here? These two should have parents who should be giving them the punishing look and it would work on them! They should feel bad about what they're saying! So why are they still laughing at Ditzy.
"Leave my mom alone!" Ditzy hears next to her. She looks and sees Dinky stood up. She still looks sad, but she also looks angry. Ditzy still doesn't like that, she wants Dinky to smile. The two fillies stop laughing at Ditzy and look at Dinky. Before they try and speak, Dinky shouts at them. "She's not stupid! She's just special! At least she knows how to be a normal pony and show caring for somepony else instead of just spouting a bunch of rubbish to make her feel god like you two!"
Ditzy struggles to keep up with what Dinky is saying, she says it quick, and Ditzy isn't too good with quick words, but she keeps up, and understands. Dinky is helping, just how Ditzy wanted to help Dinky! Dinky talks like Ditzy's own mommy, she says nice things that make Ditzy feel better.
"How about you calm down 'Donkey!'"
"How about you back off!"
"Pfft! Hmph, whatever! Come on Silver Spoon, let's leave these LOSERS to wallow in their stupidity!"
And then they were gone. Ditzy wasn't sure where they had gone, but she was glad they had gone, they were mean. Dinky turns and smiles at Ditzy, Ditzy is happy because Dinky is happy, she's smiling so that makes everything ok!
Dinky comes up to Ditzy and rubs her head against Ditzy's, like the hugs, this feels good to Ditzy, it makes her feel warm and happy. They stay there for a long time, or maybe a short time, Ditzy can't quite tell, she isn't too good with time.
Dinky then pulls away, she's smiling, but still has tears in her eyes. Ditzy doesn't understand, what was wrong.
"I love you mommy!" Dinky says, and Ditzy takes and her and hugs her and tells her she loves Dinky too, because she does. "Come on mom, let's get something to eat?" Ditzy likes that, she likes that a lot.
"Muffins?" Ditzy asks, and Dinky smiles.
"Sure mom, muffins, all the muffins we can eat!"
Dinky and Ditzy head off for home to bake, Ditzy loves baking with Dinky. She loves her life in Ponyville, and she knows someponies aren't happy with her, but she can't be bothered with them when they can't explain to Ditzy why they find her so bad!
Ditzy doesn't like those ponies who are mean for no reason, she doesn't like bullies.
But she loves Dinky very much!
