66w, 20hHuman in Equestria
Ashley turned round to see a lion-like creature land right a meters in front of him, he became motionless. The creature how ever opened its wings and charged right past Ashley and towards Callum. The impact of the charge sent Ashley into a nearby tree, luckily, he still had is bag on otherwise his spine would of been shattered by the blow, rendering him unable to do anything. the impact of hitting the tree with his head however, that was was alot. blood started to form on the back of his head. his sight went into darkness, his mind went blank...
He was unconscious.
Callum on the otherhand was capable of dodging the incoming creature. Barely. on closer inspection, Callum saw the creature had a scorpion-like tail and tried his best to keep away from it. The creature noticed Callum was behind it and focused its attention on him. It roared in the efforts of trying to intimidate Callum but this only made him angrier.
Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash proceeded through the forest, trying to stay in open areas in case they were to be ambushed then they could easily escape.
A roar broke the silence. both of their hearts skipped a beat...
it sounded close...
Taking out his pistol, Callum stared at the creatures eyes with a mischievious grin on his face "you want me? come and get me"
The creature didnt take this very well, it broke out into full sprint, stopping in front of Callum. It bared its claws and swung its paw at Callum,
Bending down, the claws just missed the top of his head, Callum got back up, looked at Ashley's body and thought to himself "im so sorry...". before running into some nearby bushes. the creature stood its ground for around a minute in case Callum returned.
The creature turned to Ashley, licking its lips, baring its razor sharp teeth. it slowly creeped up to his body as if it was going to play with its food. it opened its wings. it could smell the aroma of fresh blood from Ashley's wounds. The creature took a long sniff of Ashley's blood soaken bandage causing saliva to drip out of its mouth.
Callum was watching the creature closing in on Ashley from the bushes. he slowly got up from the bush with his pistol in his hands and shot 3 times. 2 of the bullets tore through the creatures wings, making it roar in pain while the other bullet just missed the creatures back.
The creature looked at its blood soaked wings and saw Callum in the bushes. it decided to flee as fast as it could but Callum didn't let up. he decided to chase the beast down and kill it with his bare hands if he had to.
Walking deeper into the forest, Fluttershy was thinking that going into the forest was a bad idea but this thought was pushed aside by ones which filled her with worry. She could tell Rainbow that they should go back and forget about what she saw but then she would imagine 2 animals, writhing in pain with nopony to take care of them.
The more she thought about this, the faster her heart beat.
She could here the sounds of a large creature running through the bushes, followed by "GET THE FUCK BACK HERE!!"
She looked at Dash with concern, only to see Dash shaking from fear "maybe we should go back to ponyville, you know, where its safe.." said the frightenened cycan pegasus
"But we haven't found the things that fell from the sky yet..." Fluttershy decided to continue the search for the things that fell "Why don't you fly up and try to see where they landed?"
Rainbow replied with a nod and a salute before taking to the skies.
10 minutes of full sprint without stopping would cause someone to be out of breathe, but everytime his body started to grow weak, the image of the creature hitting Ashley played through his mind. Anger started to fuel his movements, he wasn't going to give up so easily...
Callum tried to keep the creature in his sight but with small branches smacking him the face and trying to watch where he was running not to mention that he was in a place he had no idea about, he soon lost visual of the creature.
"Just fucking perfect" running his hand through his hair, he decided to look back the way he came "looks like this will take a while to get back, lets just hope Ashley is fine". He started to walk back due to his muscles aching from the fall and from sprinting for so long.
5 minutes of flying above the forest, Rainbow was getting bored not to mention hungry. She decided to fly back to Fluttershy but something caught her eye. She could see a couple of tree's that were missing some of their branches. She flew over to the area to see blood splatter on the floor "This does not look good" she thought to herself before deciding to fly back to Fluttershy.
About 20 seconds of her discovery, she found Fluttershy "Hey! I found something!"
Fluttershy looked up to see her cyan companion and took to the skies
Callum decided to keep his pistol ready in case the creature returned or something worse came out of nowhere. His muscles started to ache less but not by much, he was now capable of walking at a slightly faster speed. "If Ashley is seriously injured, i swear to god that im going to hunt down that motherfucking thing and gauge out its eyes with my bare hands. Then im going to shoot it in its legs--" He was started to have mental images of what he was describing to himself.
2 minutes passed of these thoughts being created in his mind and the joy he would have when performing them. he stopped and shook his head fast to try and get the images out of his head. He swears that he was becoming more like Ashley the more he watched him kill...
Rainbow Dash returned to her discovery with Fluttershy.
Fluttershy turned slightly pale when she saw the blood splatter on the floor. They both landed and looked around before they noticed a creature laying against a nearby tree
Fluttershy slowly started to walk up to it only to be stopped by Rainbow pulling on her tail with her mouth
"What the hay do you think you're doing!? what if that...thing is just pretending and will attack you if you get too close!?" whispered the cyan pegasus. Fluttershy decided to sit and stared at the creature.
It looked like a hairless ape, but its only hair was on the top of its head. it had wierd things on the ends of its arms. She noticed that on one of the arms, there was a cloth wrapped around it which appeared to bandage a wound.
Fluttershy stood back up and walked to the side of the creature (keeping a couple of meters distance in case it was to wake up) and noticed blood on the back of its head. The creature appeared to be knocked out.
"Maybe we should get Twi here, maybe she knows what this thing is" said Rainbow Dash
"Well, since you're much faster at flying than i am, you should go to Twilights while i keep an eye on this thing in case it wakes up. I will hide until you get back" Replied Fluttershy as she made her way back to Rainbow before getting ready to hide in a bush
"Well, okay...try to stay safe until we return okay?"
Fluttershy was silent, she simply nodded her head before hiding behind several bushes. Rainbow took to the skies.
The wind was flowing past her face, flapping her wings as fast as she could, this would be the perfect speed to do perform some awesome tricks but now was not the time. about 1 minute later, she glided towards Twilight's house, using her wings as brakes, she landed at Twi's front door.
She knocked on the door with one of her front hooves...No answer
She decided to do the same again but with more force...Again no answer
Impatience bubbled inside Rainbow, she repeated the action a third time with even more force...the door opened.
A lavender unicorn stood in the doorway, looking displeased "What do you want Rainbow Dash? im very busy with my studies and i--"
"sounds great Twi, sorry to interupt but me and Fluttershy need you in the forest. NOW. we dont have much time so if you could just do one of your teleport spells then that would save us A LOT of time" Said Rainbow Dash
"wait...what?...what is going on Rainbow? Is Fluttershy hurt or something!?"
"NO TIME! JUST DO THE DAMN SPELL!"
