Freezing Rainbows- Chapter One- Decent to Ponyville
As I fly through the high cirrus clouds, I cannot help but notice how the ice crystals cling to my coat. It is like super fine snow, so pristine that it floats on air. They are too wispy to even stand on properly, so I am used to hovering for hours at a time, but today was different. I am moving to Ponyville, for Cloudsdale is just too competitive in the field of jobs. In an earth pony city, however, the pegasus jobs should be more available. My wings and coat are turning steadily whiter with ice crystals as I spot the bustling borough. Time to land.
“Who are you and why are you on my house?” said a purple unicorn with a pink streak in her hair.
“I am Ice Bolt, and why do YOU live in a tree?” I wittily responded.
“This tree is hollow, my library is inside and you were outside my bedroom window mister Bolt! By the way, my name is Twilight Sparkle.”
“Nice to meet you Miss Sparkle, is there a hotel nearby?”
“Please just call me Twilight, and there is no formal hotel, but Rarity is renting a room at her boutique.”
“Please, lead the way.” I said.
We were passing through town and I saw alarge house made of candy called Sugarcube Corner. Whatever it sold I sure as hay wanted it. Badly.
“Let’s go there.”
As I walk through the door, I couldn’t help but notice a brief rainbow flash exiting beside me. I don’t quite know why, but I wanted to follow. Resisting the urge with the help of some wicked bad hunger, I walked up to the poofy pink cashier.
“GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” the pink mare, well... gasped and ran full speed out the back door.
“Well what the bucking hay kind of service is that?” I exclaimed.
Oh dear Celestia that was one good cupcake. So were the other nine. As I approached the Carousel Boutique, I could have sworn that I had seen a rainbow blur. It was somehow familiar.
“Hello there! Care to buy a suit, mister...” asked who I presume is Rarity.
“Bolt, Ice Bolt. I heard you are renting a spare room out?” I questioned,
“Why, yes! Only 100 bits a night!”
After suffering from a near heart attack I shakily replied,
”That won’t be necessary.”
“So Twilight, any other options?”
“Well there’s Fluttershy, Applejack, and I wouldn’t consider Pinkie Pie or Rainbow Dash.”
“Wait a minute, did you say Rainbow Dash?”
“Yes I did, do you know her?” Twilight said quizzically.
“She won the Best Young Fliers competition!”
“You sound stressed Ice, what’s the problem?”
“I placed second Twilight! She beat me!”
“Well sugarcube, Ih’m sorry, but another stallion is rentin the spare room at the barn.”
“I understand, I guess I’ll have to ask Fluttershy. See ya Applejack!” I replied. As I walked away from the barn, I was suddenly jumped by three extremely hyperactive fillies.
“How did you get your cutie mark? Huh huh huh!” yelled the orange one.
“You girls really want to know?”
“Yeah!” said the white one loudly.
“Sure do!” said a third, yellowish one.
Well, here goes.
Yes it is a cliffhanger but I am tired as it is 11:00PM so expect Ch2 soon!
