Author's Note: For any of my viewers who didn't already know, at the request of Zephyr himself, I wrote a clop chapter about him and Octavia. If you want to see it, send me a PM saying so. Also, no, I'm not gonna be doing anything trolly today just because it's April first. Can't stand that. Now, on with the story.
The next morning, at the hotel
After coming up with a plan for today yesterday, not much really happened except introducing Fern to everypony and getting her get caught with all the crazy that had been going on. She took it pretty well, probably due to the fact that she had already read about us. Very convenient really.
I wake up and hop out of bed to stretch, popping all my joints as I do so. you ever hear the sound of wings popping? It sounds more painful than it is.
Dash gets up and yawns. "Eager this morning, huh, Blue?"
"You bet. Sooner we get Ice and Dark out, the sooner we can focus all our attention on finding Drax and Spitfire."
I walk over to the bathroom and open the door. "I think I'm going to take a shower."
Dash hops out of the bed and walks over. "Mind if I join you?"
"I thought you'd never ask."
I'll let your minds play with that. I'm not writing anymore of that stuff.
After some fun time in the shower, we dry off and exit the bathroom to find Twilight and Vinyl had woken up.
"Isn't it a bit early for you two to be having fun times?" Vinyl asks jokingly.
"You kidding? Any time is fun time."
Twilight rolls her eyes. "Well, if you're done, I think we should get the others. I want to get Dark and Ice out of there as soon as possible."
We go out of the room and go knock on the next door over, Zeph, Vine, and their marefriends' room, which Fern had also stayed during the night.
Zeph opens the door. "Woah, you sure up early, Blue." he says with a chuckle.
"Yeah, yeah, joke away. I'll be the one laughing when you have to give up a tenth of your winnings to get those idiots out of jail."
"Ugh, don't remind me. For once I get lucky only to have to lose so much because of those two. Tavi is still pretty upset too."
Just then, the mares and mares turned stallions walk up behind him. "Hey, Blue. So, you ready?" Vine says.
"Am I ready? I've got the easy job. You guys just make sure to keep your ears peeled in there."
"Don't worry, it should be easy. The guys who come through that club are such idiots. You can practically hear them from a mile away." Fern says.
The third room door opens with the rest of the girls coming out to greet us. "Morning, guys." Hail says. "So, Blue, Zeph, Twilight, and Vinyl are going to the jail, and Vine, Fern, and Fleur are going to the club, what do the rest of us do?"
"That's easy. You guys will just look around the city and cover around it. We need to keep looking as much as possible. We'll meet out in front of the hotel as usual after a bit."
"Got it." they say.
"Okay, my little ponies(I couldn't resist)! Let's move out!"
Skipping right ahead to the prison because describing everything that happens before that would be boring.
The four of us reach the prison and go inside the front entrance to see a guard manning a window. "State your business." he says. Somepony has a stick up his rump.
"Yes, is this where we can pay bail?" Twilight asks.
"Then we would like to bail out Ice and Dark Lightning."
"Sure thing. Let me go get them."
The guard leaves and goes down the rows of cells. "Well that sure was easy."
The guard returns a few minutes later. "I regret to say we can't really find them. They're nowhere to be found."
I facehoof. "Me and my big mouth." I look at the guard. "What kind of prison is this where you can't even keep watch over your prisoners?"
"Anyway..." Twilight says, stopping the arguement from going on. "Can we at least pay their bail even though they're not here?"
"Sure thing. That'll be twenty thousand bits."
Zephyr takes out a large sack of bits and sighs before setting it on the counter. "Good bye, my sweets."
The guard opens the bag to inspect it. "This'll do. Thanks."
We nod and start trotting out. "If they're not here, then where could they be?"
That morning, Dark and Ice
"All prisoners wake up! It's shower time!" a guard shouts.
An alarm goes off that wakes up all the prisoners and opens the cells. Dark and Ice get out of their bed and make their way through the crowd of inmates to the showers.
Once at the showers, they turn the knobs and hot water starts coming out of the shower heads.
As he washes himself, Dark gets an idea. He nudges Ice. "Hey, watch this."
Dark takes his soap and purposely drops it. "Oops. Looks like I dropped my soap." he says out loud. He looks back to see other stallions looking at him. "I guess I better lean over and pick it up." as he leans over, he glances at the stallions as they turn away in fear. He picks up his soap and goes back to washing. "Heh, that's what I thought."
"Oh man. That was awesome." Ice says.
"Very ballsy, bro."
"Ballsy's my middle name."
They continue to wash before a guard blows a whistle. "Alright, shower's over."
They exit the shower and dry off before going back to their cell to relax, having their cellmates now being afraid them making it all the easier.
"Ah, now we can just lie down and rela-" Dark starts to say.
Before he continues, the two yard guards from yesterday come by and open their cell. "Ice and Dark Lightning, you're coming with us."
They get up and follow the guards out. "Have fun!" Bubba and Zeke yell.
Ice and Dark turn back to glare at them, scaring them back inside.
They go to the outside of a prison to see a carriage there. "Hop in." a guard says.
They do as they are told and get in the back. "Where are you taking us?" Ice asks.
"Oh, we're taking you two to win us a bunch of money."
I don't like the sound of that.
That same morning, Drax and Spitfire
Drax wakes up and smacks his lips together. he gets up to go use the disgusting bathroom yet again. Hopefully he doesn't get a disease from that place.
He comes out to see Spitfire. "So, ready for another fight, champ?" she asks.
He gets a determined look on his face. "You bet! Nopony is getting in my way no matter what!"
"That's the spirit!"
The door opens to reveal the same opony from yesterday. "Next match is coming up."
"Fine. I'll be down in a minute."
He nods and leaves the room.
Drax and Spitfire follow suit and leave the room themselves. They go down to find another large crowd of ponies are eagerly waiting to see more bloodshed.
Drax exhales and walks over to the ring to start his next fight. 'No matter who this is, you've gotta win. Not just for you, but for Fire too.' he thinks to himself.
Outside the building, the police carriage with Dark and Ice arrives. They get out and go over to the alleyway and knock on the door to open it.
"Brought some new talent for ya." a guard says.
"Really? Let's see how they do then." the door guard says.
A guard pushes Dark. "You're going first." Dark turns and glares at him. "Move your flank!"
Dark growls before going inside the ring. "Of all the lousy-" Dark starts saying to himself.
Drax blinks as he looks at his new opponent. "Dark?!"
Dark looks at him in shock. "Drax?!"
Things just keep getting better and better.
Author's Note: Congratulations to Rhino for actually figuring this out before it happened... bastard. Nah, you know I'm just kidding, bro.
