Last chapter: “They’re going to jump, right next to us.”
A shockwave of energy hits the ‘Righteous Path’ causing it to erupt into large fires.
“I can’t get a scan of the planet due to the interference”
The dropship’s engines tilt forward and a large burst from them quickly propels it forwards.
“Now, let’s discover a new planet.”
The dropship approaches the planet at an increasing speed, as it enters the atmosphere the engines retract into the hull to prevent damage, a flame forms round the front of the dropship as it starts to burn up. Inside, the Talons and the Overseer are not even phased by the rough ride. The dropship then approaches an altitude of 8500m, the engines fold back out and the dropship levels out.
The pilot informs the Overseer that there is a village and a castle in view, the Overseer then commands that three Talons are to drop on the edge of the village and that he and the others will drop in the centre of the village.
Celestia is sat in her study reading a book on ‘Creatures of the Everfree forest’. She uses her magic to lift a cup to her mouth to take a sip but as she does a guard bursts into her room causing her to drop her cup and stand to his attention. The guard then informs her, “Apologies princess but we have something you need to see. It is a rather urgent matter”.
She rushes out of the room with the guard to head towards the observatory. Once they get there Dr Atom can be seen vigorously righting down notes as he looks through the eyepiece of the telescope. He moves to the side as ‘Tia moves towards the eyepiece, she looks at him as he knods in approval. When she looks through she sees the SKULL ship floating in orbit with the dropship growing larger as it closes in on Equestria.
As the dropship got closer and closer ‘Tia studied it more and more, soon the ship started to burn in the atmosphere. Dr Atom was looking at a screen showing what the telescope could see, he then perked up, “it looks as though as it’s heading for Ponyville, Princess” ‘Tia lifted her head up and turns to the guard and tells him to meet them there, the guard then rushes out. ‘Tia then makes her way back to her sister’s room. Dr Atom staring at the screen, trying to figure out what it could be.
“We’re over the first drop-zone, sir” the pilot calls out to the Overseer, the three Talons sat in their chairs and are tipped back, a door covers the hole and they are launched out of the dropship. The dropship makes its way to the next drop-off point whilst the three Talons dive towards the ground at over 500 MPH, as they approach the ground (about 1000m) an alarm beeps indicating that they need to slow down. They then deploy flaps on their back, raise their arms and bend their legs, this flips them from head first to feet first, they then activate boosters in their boots slowing them down to a stop just as they reach the ground. By the time they had landed the Overseer and the other Talons are already diving down to the surface, the Talons taking the lead with the Overseer not far behind.
Soon they reach the diving limit where they need to slow down, the Talons immediately deploy flaps and slow down, the Overseer rushes past, now coming to a speed of 700MPH, his alarm blaring louder and more rapidly as he nears the ground, “FASTER!” he shouts.
100m left......he deploys his flaps and flips over only to hit the ground at the same speed as before, creating a large crater and dust ploom, the noise alone must have woken all of Ponyville instead some ponies that were in the club ‘Melody’s Midnight Mares’ came charging out to see what the racket was.
The three ponies were Colgate, Carrot Top and Berry Punch, when they exited the club they were greeted by a cloud of dust. As they searched around Colgate trips over the edge of the crater almost falling into it. The dust soon disappeared revealing a figure stood at the bottom with glowing red eyes. They all duck down hoping that it didn’t see them. Carrot Top peeks over and watches as the figure runs up the side of the crater and jumps out landing on the other side where the Talons were stood. They salute, one looks over in the pony’s direction and points, the Talons and Overseer walk over to the trio, “Stay where you are!” one of them shouts.
They reach the ponies; the Talons keep guard whilst the Overseer approaches them, “Can you understand me?” he questions slowly. ‘I am talking to a horse’ he thinks to himself. The trio just stare at him in fear. He realises he must look scary to them, reaches over his shoulder and presses a button on the side of his neck, his armour quickly folds up into a small backpack causing the three to jump, “I’ll ask again. Can you understand me?” he repeats in a more clear voice, Colgate knods slowly, then the others. He kneels down and offers a hand out to help them up, “Please. Don’t be scared.” He reassures them as they stand up, coming to a height roughly up to his chest.
After a few minutes of conversation some royal guards approach, “Hay, you there!” one shouts out as the Talons turn and aim their guns and the Overseer’s armour automatically deploying round him.
He pulls out a pistol and aims it at Colgate, “Stop there! Or else there will be one less pony on this planet.” He orders, the guards stop as he raises the gun to them.
He then questions, “Now.....what to do with you lot?”
Author's comments: Sorry about these being rather short. I did while revising for exams and got bored so I wrote them down first not realising how short they would be. Apart from that I hope you enjoy.
