65w, 6dHuman in Equestria
Twilight walked towards the kitchen followed by Ashley, she looked back to see him examining the environment.
"You sure do keep a lot of books don't ya?" Ashley asked as he turnded his head to look at some books on a shelf. He felt as though he knows this place from somewhere. He used his finger to wipe across one of the shelves "Doing a fine job in the cleaning department" turning his head to give Twilight a smile
She returned the smile "Thank you for the compliment" she gestured her hoof towards the door infront of her "This way to the kitchen" before walking into there herself followed by Ashley
The kitchen was spotless, well organised and smelled like cirtus fruits, Ashley took a long breath through his nose, inhaling the scent. He looked around and noticed a table with a couple of chairs next to it. The counters were reflecting the suns rays from the window which blinded Ashley until he moved out of the way, he looked at Twilight who already took a seat and was watching him
"You may begin" Twilight said proudly, levitating the quill, ink bottle and paper infront of her
"Begin what?" Ashley asked, giving the pony a look of confusion
"Making something to eat? I want to take notes on what you eat" giving off an unamused expression
"Oh, that makes sense" scratching his cheek while putting on an awkward smile, he began by walking over to the sink and turning on the tap to wash his hands. Only to stop to ask for something to dry them with which Twilight used her magic to open a drawer next to him which revealed dish towels. He picked one up and closed the drawer, drying his hands before placing the cloth over his shoulder.
"Right...where is the bread, butter and hamthe cheese?"
"Ham?" Twilight tilted her head in confusion "Whats that?"
Ashley facepalmed, realising that ponies here are vegetarian like they are on earth "Pig meat"
"Sorry to disappoint you but we ponies don't eat meat"
"Great...no chicken, no sausages, no beef..." he thought to himself, his eyes widened "Oh god no bacon!"
"Is something wrong?" Asked Twilight raising her eyebrow.
"huh? oh yeah...everything is...fine...I dont really feel in the mood to eat right now" he replied, walking to a wall near Twilight and leaning his back against it "you mentioned that 2 of your friends found me"
"Yes I recall saying something like that. Why? would you like to meet them?" she gave him a smile
"At some point but for now I want to adjust being here" his stomach growled "do you have any fruit?"
"Fruit? which fruit do you like to eat?" her eyes were glistening as she was ready to take down notes
"Well let's see...I eat grapes, apples, bananas, lemons, melon, watermelon, oranges and different types of berries but i dont like them much"
"Well we do have apples, the best in fact as my friend Applejack works at Sweet Apple Acres which isn't far from here. We should visit her sometime"
Ashley stood in silence "Why do those names sound so familiar to me?" asking himself in his head
"Is something wrong?" Twilight asked, she was starting to worry about Ashley more and more
"Nothing is wrong so don't worry. I was just thinking about something that doesn't concern you in the slightest" giving her a grin "So...where are those apples?"
Twilight pointed a hoof towards a small cabinet above the sink. Ashley walked over and opened the cabinet door to be greeted with a pile of apples falling on him. Twilight couldn't help but giggle as she levitated the apples off him. Ashley stood back up, giving and awkward smile to cover the loss of some of his dignity. Twilight moved the apples onto the table and kept on floating one infront of her to take a bite. Ashley took one of the apples and took a bite as well, the apple was bursting with a sweet juice, the flesh was delicious, he started to take several bites before chewing.
"Looks like somepony likes there apples? pointing her hoof to her cheek to signal that Ashley had some juice running on his. He grabbed the cloth on his shoulder and wiped off the excess juice before putting his attention back to the apples
"The correct term is some-ONE since I'm not a pony and second of all these apples are so DARN GOOD!" he exclaimed before stuffing his mouth with more apple goodness
Twilight's quill was taking notes of the situation, on the paper "Loves apples" was circled.
a few minutes later and a slaughter of apples at the hands of Ashley. Both human and unicorn sat in the front room. Ashley's eyes kept being drawn to the large amount of books "you could run a library with all these books y'know?"
"this is the ponyville library and I live here" answered the lavender unicorn who's hoof pointed to Ashley's arm "how is your...your..."
"Arm" said Ashley before pointing to the things on the ends on them "and these are my hands which help me hold objects" he wriggled the things on his hands "and these are my fingers"
Twilight took notes of what the human just said with her floating writting equipment "your arm was injured when we found you, when we got you here and I tied you up downstairs. I tried to perform a healing spell on you" she didnt want to discuss about the voice she heard as it could cause problems
"You tried?" said Ashley who was examining his arm, poking it in several spots where he remember were the wound was "Because from as I can see you done a fantastic job"
Twilight was flattered from the compliment and a small blush made its way onto her face which Ashley decided to ignore "I'm still a bit freaked out by the whole magic thing by the way since when it comes to injuries, my body cells repair the damage done slowly most of the time" He could go into more detail about his cells needing protein but then it would bring up meat and he doubted that a vegetarian creature will want to discuss killing animals"
"The way your body works sounds fascinating" Twilights eyes started to glisten and opened wider "You must tell me more!"
Ashley moved himself away from the unicorn slightly and gave her an awkward smile "Another time, an saying on my planet was I only know this stuff because I studied physical eduaction in school"
Twilight's mind was filled with questions about the educational system from where the human came from but she thought that she asked enough questions for one day "don't want to overwhelm him" she thought to herself
Ashley stood up and made his way to the basement "going to check on Callum" all he heard was "Okay" from Twilight
Twilight made her way over to her desk. There were a small pile of books on the desk, some were opened. She opened a drawer via magic and put her writing equipment and notes in there. She was about to make her way down to the basement when she heard a knock at the door, she opened the door with her magic slowly only for it burst wide open due to a certain cyan pegasus bursting through it, Twilight turned back round to see Fluttershy standing infront of her
"Oh...h.hello Twilight, do you mind if we come in?" asked Fluttershy who tried to hide behind her mane mid-question
"Of course Fluttershy, at least you have the decency to ask" replied Twilight who gave a frown towards Rainbow Dash who was giving her a unamused look
Twilight moved out the way to allow Fluttershy access to her home, closing the door after letting in the pegasus
"Sooo...anything happen at all when we left you with that thing?" Asked the rainbow maned mare
"Um...I think we should dicuss this somewhere else" replied Twilight as she made her way upstairs "follow me"
They followed her into her bedroom, Twilight closed the door when were all in "Well...let's start off with once you two left, I tied it up to a table in my basement, which I spent hours trying to find information about it in my books but that came up inconclusive. I tried to use a healing spell on it's injured arm which worked in the end but something strange happened..." Twilight's tone start to become quiet at the end
"What happened?" Asked Fluttershy
"That's the thing...I still need to discuss that with it and I wish we do not discuss that particular event until then"
Both pegasi nodded before Twilight continued her story "Promise you wont freak out about this but" both pegasi leaned forward slightly and gave a nod, eager to hear what she had to say next "Well, I was hit with something and then I was unconcious bu-"
"WHAT!?" Yelled Rainbow Dash "IM GOING TO BEAT THAT THING SENSELESS!" she opened the door and charged down the stairs
