"H-huh... waz that?" I awoke with a pounding in my head, but to my delight there was a sweet aroma in the air.
"O-oh my! You're awake, I-I'm so glad." I barely hear what she said, and I could barely tell it was a she, with me being, you know, half awake right now.
"W-what? Who's there?!" To my luck, my vision was a tad blurry.
"I-It's me, Fluttershy.." After the statement left her tongue I instantly picked it up, but I became a bit confused from it.. Did she say she was Fluttershy? I must be dreaming.
"Fluttershy? What? Am I dreaming?"
"Oh I hope not, b-but if you are I-I'm sorry if I disturbed you.." She could barely stammer it out, but by that anxious voice and soft yellow and pink blur in my vision I worked out she was indeed Fluttershy.
"I'm still not sure if it is a..Where am I anyway?" If I'm dreaming, I might as well know what's going on in this dream.
"You don't remember? I'm sorry.. I was just so happy to see you were awake I forgot to tell you! I-I found you.. in the Everfree Forest while I was on my way to Zecora's to get some medicine for Angel Bunny, and you were out cold, you poor thing!"
As I processed what she said I came to a thought.. This dream is strange, it's not too far off as almost to be a lucid dream.
"Okay.. Go on." I motioned for her to move on in her story with my.. HOOVES?!
"So I carried you back to my cottage and let you sleep up here, so far it's been about.. Six hours." My ears picked up the words cottage, sleep, six, and hours. That information was nothing in comparison to learning I now had new appendages that replaced my hands.
Fluttershy stood by the bed I currently occupied as I took in my surroundings, I was indeed in her cottage, and in her bed by the looks. I moved to get up. falling out of the bed only to be land on top of Fluttershy.. So I tried my.. Hooves, at standing up, on top of that I noticed how considerably larger she is than me.
*Moan* "Sorry Fluttershy.." She broke my fall a bit, but it still hurt.
"Oh no! Scootaloo, are you alright?!" She got up and gave me a concerned look, over looking the fact that she could of gotten hurt as well.
My brain was still processing that there is indeed a pegasus pony occupying the space in front of me, then went into shock at the mentioning that she referred to me as Scootaloo.
She called me Scootaloo! My dream came true! But whoa, the pain was almost all too real to be a part of this dream.. Maybe something fell on my head in the real world? No.. This probably is a genuine lucid dream, I can't seem to gain control though..
"Ugh.. I'm okay, but wow, this dream is pretty real, I can smell fresh greenery, and I definitely felt that landing back there too." This is pretty cool, and hey, I'm hanging with Fluttershy!
"D-dream? What do mean?" She seemed a little nervous about her words, then again she is basically the embodiment of shyness.
"This dream, the one I'm having right now! I mean, I do feel a little bruised from the fall, but that's fine." I was still enthused with my current state, it DOES worry me a little about how confused she is.
"S-scootaloo, um.. You're not dreaming, I just saw you wake up, you can't be dreaming!" I blinked and twitched my eyes a little, damn logic.
Wait, if I'm not dreaming.. Oh sweet Celestia, did my wish come true?! No.. It couldn't have, right?
"Oh dear, you must be feeling sick.. here let me help back into bed." To my surprise she lifted me with her fore-hooves and with a slight flap of her wings lifted me up into the bed with ease.
"I don't actually feel well now that you mention it.. And a little confused too, as to why I was in the Everfree forest." This was true, I mean, doesn't Scootaloo have a home?
"Oh, you poor thing.. Are you hungry too?" Definitely the Element of Kindness, she has a sort of motherly feel and aura to her as well.
Now that she mentions it, I feel like I haven't eaten in AGES! Well.. Rusty ate before bed, Scootaloo, it seems, hasn't eaten in a while.
"I'm really hungry.. Could I have something to eat?" Well duh, she just asked if you were hungry genius..
"O-OH! Of course! I'll fetch you something to eat, and I'll get a little medicine while I'm down stairs, okay?" I wonder what kind of food ponies eat? Apples and carrots? Surely there's more than that, and medicine? Oh boy..
"Okay.. Th-thank you Fluttershy." Heavens to Betsy, she's so nice to bring in a filly she found in the woods.. I wonder if she has a shed.. *gulp*
"Alrighty then, sit tight, I'll be right back." And with that she walked out the door and it shut with click.
"Hmm.. So, I'm a pony.. It's a little confusing.. But I'm in the care of the nicest pony in Equestria, so it's not that bad."
"Come to think of it, you know how many people would KILL to be here in my position? They'd probably freak out with joy, or maybe they'd keep their calm as to not startle one of their favorite ponies."
I took a moment to further examine my new body, I had a purple mane with a matching tail, an orange coat, and little Pegasus wings. I was indeed Scootaloo, if only I knew why.
"I'm back!" Fluttershy was at my bed side once again in no time, on her back a tray with a multitude of things, she proceeded to place the tray on the near by nightstand using her mouth.
"I brought you a daisy sandwich, a glass of water, we were out of apple juice and a little filly like you can't drink cider, and some cold medicine for when you finish eating." For the medicine she had a decent sized spoon which I guess I won't be able to hold, and the medicine itself was in a large white bottle labeled "Ponytussin" Great, Robitussin in Equestrian form.
"Thank you Fluttershy!" I said this whole heartily, I really did.
"Oh it's no problem at all! Okay so you go ahead and eat, I'll be downstairs if you need me, and yell for me when you're done eating okay?" Eating.. Oh yes, this will be a challenge.
"Okay." With my simple reply she smiled and proceeded to walk downstairs, leaving the door open a crack as she did.
I went for the sandwich, I suppose daisies are like a substitute Salami.. Only way to find out is by eating it I suppose, and I'm starved! I scooped up the food stuff with my hooves, I knew trying to grip it would just end up with me getting covered in food, followed by a very awkward bubble bath... I could feel my cheeks burning at the thought of that.
"Oh my god this is delicious!" My first bite proved my pony taste buds make things like this taste like.. Stuff I find delicious back on Earth!
I quickly scarfed it down, cautious not to lick my hooves however seeing how I walk on them. I drank only half of my water, I might need it after the medicine..
"I guess I should call her now.. *inhale* FLUTTERSHY!!" In a matter of seconds the Pegasus was once again, at my side, this time floating above the floor in fright as if we were playing "The floor is lava".
"WHAT?! WHAT'S WRONG?! ARE YOU OKAY?!" I was a little startled at first, then I realized that I must of startled HER with my sudden cry for assistance.
"Sorry if I scared you Fluttershy, but.. I'm done, see?" A small grin found it's way onto my face, I wonder how adorable I must look, puppy eyes activate!
"O-oh, it's okay, but since you're done, it's time for your medicine." She then picked up the white bottle next to my now half empty glass of water and also grabbed the spoon that also occupied the same tray as the two former's.
I could feel myself growing with fear of how it would taste, I watched as she poured the pink ooze into the spoon, and she was generous with it at that.
"Alright, open wide Scootaloo." She held the spoon mere inches from my face, I reluctantly opened my mouth and received a spoonful of the stuff. I wasn't very surprised at this next part, I gagged a little as the "Ponytussin" slid down my throat, but I held it down seeing as I should probably listen to what my new caretaker tells me.
"There, feel better?" Her voice was warm and soothing, so of course I felt better.
"Yes, thank you." Short and sweet.
"Now you get some rest, there's a bathroom through that door over there if you need it, but right now it's about 9:30, and little fillies like you need their rest, if you need me I'll be downstairs, goodnight Scootaloo." It's almost like she's a second mom.. Well, I wouldn't really know.. So I guess she's like a first mom, to me at least.
"Goodnight Fluttershy" She flashed me a warm smile, one that matched her voice, and shut the light, and the door.
"Hey.. This bed is even softer than mine! Score!"
