When Fluttershy opened the door of my room to the outside, I had to squint my eyes. The sun was blaring down onto the land, causing it to be extremely hot. She put her front left hoof out, as to beckon me outside. I took slow steps, but I eventually walked outside. It took my eyes some time to adjust to the world outside. It was like someone took a can of bright paint and covered the dreary world he lived on. Everything out here was brighter and seemed more colorful than the Earth he was used to. I stood still for a moment, taking in the land. I jumped up when I saw Fluttershy fly over my head, and she turned around. She was smiling down at me, hovering in the air.
“Are you coming, or are you going to stand there?” She said with a joking voice.
I smiled back at her and started to follow her as she flew. I noticed how fast her wings flew, yet how graceful she was. I continued to stare at her until I had to blink my eyes. I was happy that she did not notice how much of a creep I was really being. I was staring at a pony... this place must be really screwing me up. I laughed at myself, and continued to walk. Soon, the terrain under us changed from hills to just a vast Greenland. I was happy that the hills were gone, as I could easily keep up with Fluttershy. I noticed that she seemed to be turning her head towards me every few minutes, but I did not pay much attention to it. The thought on my mind was that she knew someone who would be able to help me out of here. I repeated that thought through my mind, my smile growing each time it was said.
Fluttershy turned her head towards me again, and saw that my grin was now spread across my face. She must have thought she was the cause of it, as she smiled even wider than I was. She quickly turned her head back around, and I laughed at myself again. I really am becoming weird, aren’t I?
After what seemed like an endless jogging session, I began to see a town rise over the distance. I felt my heart jump as I looked at the massive town. Maybe I was not the only human out here after all! Fluttershy continued to fly in front of me, going slow enough for me to keep up. We kept our pace until we reached the city. She dropped to the ground in front of me and turned around. I looked down at her and smiled, and she smiled back. We kept like this for a moment, my eyes not leaving hers. I quickly shook my head and said,
“So... where is this friend of yours?”
For a second, I could have sworn she looked sad that I broke our gaze, but I did not think much of it. She looked back up at me again and said,
“We are almost there. Just a little further from here.”
She was now walking beside me, while my eyes were scanning the town. They had everything that human’s had in their towns, but so much more colorful! There were ponies walking around everywhere, and they all seemed to know each other. However when they saw me beside Fluttershy, their happy faces soon turned to complete fear and confusion. One of the ponies that ran away when they saw me yelling, “It is Zecora all over again!”
I looked back down at Fluttershy, who was frowning back at me. I asked her,
‘’who is Zecora?”
Fluttershy’s frown soon faded away, and she softly laughed.
“It is a long story.” She said with a small hint of joy.
We continued to walk like this for a little while more, while I continued to look at the stores. They had stores for just about everything I could imagine. On one side there is a sofa and quill store, and on the other, a muffin store!
“You ponies have weird taste in stores...” I said out loud on accident. I quickly turned red as I felt Fluttershy turn her eyes to me. I could not feel any stupider if I would have fallen flat on my face. I would even enjoy that now if it got her to stop staring at me. Once I felt her gaze move off of me, I sighed in relief. My eyes started to scan the town again, and out on the distance I saw the biggest tree in history. I stared in complete awe of it, curious on how I had not seen it earlier. Fluttershy and I walked up to the massive tree, and at the front of it, there was a door. I grew very confused as I watched Fluttershy walk up to it and knock.
“Who would live in a tree?” I said out loud.
From behind the door, a purple unicorn answered me while opening the door.
“I would.” She said.
Fluttershy smiled at Twilight and quietly said,
“Twilight, this is my new... friend, Gary.”
Twilight’s face soon turned to the biggest smile I have seen in ages.
“A human! I have read about them, but never thought I would ever see one. Come in you two!” The pony seemed to of been jumping around in joy, and I felt a little embarrassed. Fluttershy turned her head to look back at me, and she smiled. I returned the smile, and walked in with her. Twilight gleefully let both of us inside, and closed the door.
“Now, let’s see. How did you find yourself in Equestria Gary?”
