I wake up the next morning and stretch myself out. 'I slept way better than I did the night before.' I think. 'Guess I'm just used to the bandages by now. I just hope I'm not stuch wearing them for too long. I'm not getting paid vacation!' I walk and down stairs to be greeted by Fluttershy making breakfast. I could get used to this.
"Good morning, Blue." says Fluttershy. She places some toast infront me. If this is what it's like to be married, then sign me up!
"Did you sleep well?"
"Better than I did the other night, yeah."
"That's good. So, any plans for the day? If you don't mind me asking that is." she says meekly. D'aw.
"Nah, I don't mind. I was thinking to head over to Pinkie's and seeing if she's got got anything to do."
"Oh, that should be fun." she says with a giggle. "Never a dull moment with Pinkie around."
"Hehe, I could tell." I finish my breakfast and Fluttershy starts replacing my bandages again. "Hey, Fluttershy?"
"How much longer do you think I'll need to wear these bandages?"
"Well, you're scratches have been healing quickly, so you shouldn't need bandages anymore after today."
"Sounds good." when she's done, he I go head out the front door. "See ya later!"
"Bye." Fluttershy replies
I fly over to Ponyville and make my way towards Sugarcube Corner. I shortly arrive and the giant gingerbread-looking house and head inside to be greeted by the Cakes. "Morning, Mr. and Mrs. Cake."
"Good morning, dear." Mrs. Cake says. "Pinkie told us about your injuries, so Mr. Cake and I decided to make you a batch of cookies to make you feel better." she pulls out a plate full of cookies.
"Really?" I walk up to the plate and examine the cookies. Chocolate chip. Awesome! I pick one up and eat it. "Wow, these are great. Thanks."
"You're welcome. Now, why'd you come down here?"
"I actually came to see Pinkie."
"Let me call her. Pinkie, Blue Breeze is here to see you!"
Pinkie pops her out from the door near the front counter. "Hey, Breezey. What's up?"
"Not much. I just came by to see if you had anything going on."
"Well, I'm baking some cupcakes to be sold here at the store." Pinkie's eyes and mouth widen in excitement. "Mr. and Mrs. Cake, is it ok if Blue helps make the cupcakes?" Pinkie asks the couple.
They both look at each other. "Well, do you have any experience baking?" Mr. Cake asks me.
"I used to help my mom bake a lot when I was little."
They both look at each other again and nod. "Alright, you can help."
"YAY!" Pinkie shouts. I know I'm going to regret this. Pinkie pulls me into the kitchen and slaps a chef's hat and apron on me. I'm already regretting this.
"So, how go aout baking the cupcakes, Pinkie?"
"Well..." Pinkie starts bobing and down and music starts playing.
"Pinkie, what are you doing?" I look around the room. "And where's that music coming from?"
"All you have to do is take a cup of flour
Add it to the mix
Now just take a little something sweet, not sour
A bit of salt, just a pinch"
"Please stop." I say dejectedly.
"Baking these treats is such a cinch
Add a teaspoon of vanilla
Add a little more, and you count to four
And you never get your filla"
"Celestia, why me?" I say looking upwards.
"Cupcakes, so sweet and tasty
Cupcakes, don't be too hasty
Cupcakes, cupcakes, cupcakes, CUPCAKES!"
The music that was coming from Celestia knows where stops playing. I facehoof. "Can we just get to the baking, please?"
"Okie Dokie Lokie!" Pinkie chimes. I'm never going to understand this mare.
Half an hour later
The timer dings and Pinkie takes the cupcakes out of the oven. "These look great." she says.
She brings them over and I sniff them. "They smell great, too. So, anything else?"
"Well, I was thinking since you helped make them, that we could top them in swirly, blue icing."
"Really? For me?"
"Sure, you've earned it." she says with a smile. She may be crazy, but I wouldn't want Pinkie to change for anything. But I could do without the singing.
After all that's done, I head out into Ponyville and try to find something to do. I come across a drinking bar called 'The Sleepy Stallion'. Strange name.
'Hmm, I could go for a drink.' I think to myself. I head inside. Now I get the name. More than half the guys in here are out cold from drinking too much. Dang drunks.
I walk up and take a seat at the front counter. "What'll you have?" the bartender asks me.
"I'll take an apple cider."
"Coming right up." he takes a wooden mug, puts it under a tap, and fills it to the brim with cider.
"Thanks." I tell him. He nods and walks off. I hear a hiccup from my left and look over to see a purple earth pony mare with a strawberry and some grapes for a cutie mark. She also has about a dozen empty glasses infront of her and a blush on her face. Oh great, a boozer.
She notices me and leans over. "Hey, what's up with *hic* those bandages on you?"
"Oh, these? It's nothing. I'll be fine."
"Oooh, a tough guy. I like that in a stallion." she says with a grin. This is getting weird. "I haven't seen you *hic* around Ponyville before. What's your name *hic*, handsome?"
"U-um, m-my name is Blue Breeze." I say nervously. She's creeping me out more than when I first met Pinkie.
"I'm Berry *hic* Punch. What do you say you and I *hic* go back to my place and we have some *hic* fun?"
My eyes widen in fear. No bucking way is that happening. I quickly finish my cider and leave some bits on the counter. "Here, keep the change." I tell the bartender.
"Thanks." he replies.
I trot out the bar, only to look back and see that erry is still following me. I start trotting fast. Berry matches my pace. I star going faster and faster until i break off into a full blown gallop, Berry galloping behind me. She sure is good at running for being drunk. Somepony's obviously had some practive. I jump and hide in a nearby bush. I peak out of the bush. 'I think I lost her.' I turn around and see Berry.
"Kiss me!" she shouts, sticking out her lips.
I shriek and take off again. I head into a dark alleyway and hide behind a dumpster. I don't recommend it. I peek out to see if I lost Berry. She pops out.
"Don't be shy!"
I take off again. I notice the library and take cover in the branches. Right when I think it's safe, I feel something push me up.
"I know a great make out spot!" Berry yells.
I take off once more, Berry still following me with her tongue hanging out. hen it seems like I'll never lose her, I make the most obvious realization ever. 'I have wings! DUH! I can just fly away!' I think. 'Man, I'm stupid sometimes.' I start flying away.
"Hey! No fair!" Berry shouts.
"Sorry! Maybe we can see each other again when you're not drunk off your flank!" I yell back.
I start flying back towards Fluttershy's, thinking to myself. 'Man, this town has got the strangest Ponies ever.'
