My stare at the small yellow pony in front of me continued.
“I know who this pony is... it is Fluttershy!” I thought to myself, as I continued to stare at her. Fluttershy looked to have become extremely uncomfortable, keeping her eyes down on the floor, avoiding my gaze. After a few moments, I realized how truly creepy she must of felt for me to stare at her like this. I decided to test my theory out on her.
“What is your name?” I asked, with sympathy making it sweet.
She slowly lifted her head up to my eyes, and quietly said,
“My... my name is Fluttershy...” She quickly looked back at the floor, her face now a shade of red.
The shock that hit me this time was not as great, as I expected this already. So this is the pony from the show, huh? I reached my hand out to touch her head, as you would to please an animal on earth. She began to shrink under my touch, scared of what I was about to do. Slowly, I began to pet her head, and softly said
“Thank you for taking care of me Fluttershy.”
I felt her body loosen up, and I took my hand away. She looked up at me and smiled, her fear now seemed to disappear. We both smiled at each other, and I sat on my bed. I motioned for her to join me, and she accepted the invitation. She slowly flapped her wings and landed on the bed, her small weight not causing the bed to react. I looked over at her and said,
“Now, can you please tell me why you were taking my clothes off?” I tried to say this in the least awkward way I could think possible. It felt weird coming out of my mouth, as I was saying this to a pony! In reaction to this, Fluttershy once again became embarrassed. This time however, she did not slump onto the bed, and answered with a tiny voice.
“Well... I love to take care of animals. And when I saw you fell down...” Her voice trailed away as she looked down at my bed. I smiled at the small pony, touched by her generoisty. So this pony did not care about her own safety, and cared for someone she did not even know? I reached my hand out to pet her again, as I did not know how to please an animal, or one that could even talk. I began to pet her head, and slowly she began to calm down. I picked up head back up so she was looking at me again. Once I did this however, she began to turn pink.
I let go of her head, and she was still looking up at me. I stared into her eyes for a moment, caught in their beautiful gaze. We stayed like this for a few minutes, and I shook my head, breaking it. I said to her,
“Thank you for taking care of me Fluttershy! I really appreciate it.”
I smiled down at her, and she turned her head away. I could tell by the side of her face that she was very embarrassed, and it made me smile.
“She is rather cute when she is like this... Wait, what am I thinking!?” I said to myself, causing me to shake my head. When I did this, she turned to face me, worrying about what I was doing. I smiled back with a stupid grin, now embarrassed of myself. To break the silence, I said
“My name is Gary, by the way.”
Fluttershy returned with a smile that caused my entire body to melt.
“Welcome to Ponyville... Gary.”
