Hmm...I wonder what the place looks like? Something dark and mysterious? Or maybe it can all sunshine and rainbows, *sigh* I highly doubt that. Last time when Twilight came to our place, I heard multiple voices, I guess I'll meet the rest of her rest of friends. Still, I have to finish with Old Chica and Freddy so I Can't stay for that long. Oh well, enjoy the chapter anyway.
So this is what the outside world looks like? I thought it would be brighter than this. I guess I'm pretty used to the darkness due to me being in that restaurant this whole time. I looked at Twilight and Spike noticed them shivering. I raised my eybrow and looked at them.
"What, you guys cold are something?" I asked. They looked at me astonished.
"And your not?" Twilight asked. I tried to feel the cold breeze, but don't feel a thing.
"Not one bit. Why? Should I be?" Curiosity eventually took over as I looked at them. Twilight was a pony and Spike was a dragon, they had fur and I didn't, yet there looked like they were freezing their buts off. Something is definitely wrong here.
"It's...nevermind." Twilight just gave up on the explanation on why I wasn't cold. As they were walking I gave a short glance at the back and expected the "Toys" to signify their appearance. Thankfully they all gave a thumbs up in the bushes. I gave a sigh of relief as our prank was set in motion. I tried to stop the smile from forming, but it was hard as hell. After a few more mintues of walking and chatting about random things, we finally made it to Ponyville, or at least that's what Twilight told me.
"Ugh...Thank Celestia, I thought I would've never leave that forest." Spike said in relief. I wasn't sure why the forest was so scary to Spike, it can't be that bad, right? After walking to this Ponyville place I looked to my right and saw this nice looking cottage, I saw a bunch of flowers on the ground, so I assumed it was just the back of the house.
"What's that over there?" I pointed to the building, which Twilight smiled.
"Oh that? That's where my friend Fluttershy lives." She simply said. "Would you like to meet her?" I looked at the cottage agian and looked at the animatronics, which they nodded "yes". In shrugged my shoulders.
"Sure why not." I said. I walked to the place until Twilight stopped me with her hand.
"You might want me to go knock on the door."
"She's a tad timid when it comes to new ponies...or humans in this case." Twilight looked sheepish as I gave a big sigh.
"Ok, go ahead." Twilight nodded and went to knock on the door.
"Who is it?" I heard a response. The sound of the voice sounded so majestic to me, It felt weird.
"Fluttershy it's me, Twilight." She answered. I heard and "Oh" and slowly opened the door. What I saw just made my heart race. Fluttershy had a flowing light pink mane that made me stare at it. She wore on her feet were those cute little bunny slippers for walking. What was visible on her legs were dark yellow stockings and dark green sweat pants. And finally, a green sweater with a butterfly on it to complete her outfit.
"B-Beauty." Was all I said as my cheeks began to heat up. I closed my mouth before they heard me but it was too late. Fluttershy let out an 'eep' of fear and tried to slam the door.
"Fluttershy Wait!" Yelled Twilight as she held on to the door. "Do you remember when I said that I saw this weird shadow in that Freddy Fazbear place?" She asked.
"Yeah, why?" Soon Fluttershy's face had a look of curosity.
"Well...Anthony right here, is that shadow I saw." Twilight gestured to me. Fluttershy looked at me while I took off my hat so that she could see my face perfectly. I blushed a bit since I still used to a girl staring at me.
"H-Hi." I had a sheepish smile and backed away a bit. I never felt so meek and flustered at the same in my entire life. Why am I feeling this way? She walked towards me as I backed away even more.
"There there, you have nothing to worry about." She gently caressed her hand on mine. The only it did for me was my face heat even more. Just her hand itself felt so warm and comforting.
"I-I-I-I." For the first time, I couldn't think of anything to say. Thank goodness she asked me something.
"Would you like to come to my cottage for a snack?" I swallowed hard due to the lump on my throat. I didn't want to say anything dumb so I just nodded. She gave me a warm smile and motioned to come inside. As I was walking inside, I noticed Spike smug grin on his face. I glared at him intensely as if I was saying "If you saying one word, I will kill you in you sleep". Thankfully he got the message and nodded fearly. Little did I know that the same black liquid dripped on my face. Once I went inside and sat on the couch, I looked everywhere that there were animals everywhere. From squirrels, to mice, to birds, beavers, rabbits, you name it, it was all there. The animals all looked at me with curiosity as I looked at Twilight.
"Hey Twilight?" She looked at me. "Why are there so many animals here?" I felt something climb on my shoulder, which was a squirrel sniffing me.
"Fluttershy takes care of all the animals in Ponyville." she said. I raised my eyebrow.
"So she's like a veterinarian?"
"She doesn't do it just for the bits, she just the sake of society, she's kind that way." Twilight and Spike looked at each other with a grin. I just sat there confused a the signal those two were sending. I finally saw Fluttershy walked out of the what I assumed was the kitchen with a plate of crackers. I looked at Fluttershy for approval.
"M-May I?" I asked. She just giggled and nodded "yes". I'm not gonna lie, these crackers were pretty good. I took another piece when I saw a little rabbit take a cracker and eat.
'Mmm...she certainly know how to make a cracker.' It said. Let me repeat that, IT SAID!!!!! Like words and everything. How did I understand it? I scratched my ears to see if there was anything in them.
'Nope, it's pretty clean.' I thought. I forgot about it as Fluttershy sat beside me.
"So...what kind of creature are you? I haven't seen anything like you before." She asked. I tried my hardest not to turn my face into a cherry again. It look all the courage I had to speak.
"W-Well...Um...Well, I'm from a species known as a human. In a nutshell, a human is a super advanced ape or monkey that can walk on our feet and talk, as I'm doing right now." I gave an awkward chuckle. I saw Twilight take out a notepad and with...a...quill, she wrote down the facts. Fluttershy looked at me as I face turn red again.
"I saw you eating the crackers just fine, is there anything else that you can digest?" Oh damn I forgot they were ponies. They eat plants don't they? I shuffled nervously and looked back a Fluttershy.
"Hey Fluttershy? Do you mind if we talk in private? In the kitchen?" I asked. My question seemed to caught off guard, having a surprised reaction.
"Oh...Um...sure." Fluttershy went to the kitchen and I followed. Once we got the I sat on a chair and so did she.
"Why does it have to be private?" she asked. I gave a sigh and stood up.
"I-I think it's best that I show since you seem to be an expert on animals." I sat down next to her so she could see. I lifted up my mouth and showed her my meat eaters.
"*gasp* T-Those are..." She didn't want to finish the sentence, so I did it for her.
"Canines I know, meaning that I eat meat." I felt ashamed of saying that to a pony, and to Fluttershy no less. I didn't even want to look at her at this point. The only thing I heard was Fluttershy's voice.
"Is that all you eat?" She asked. YES!!! HERE'S MY CHANCE!!
"N-No, not at all! We also have incisors and molars, which means we could also eat fruits and vegetables." I said happily. She seemed happy the statement, but then looked confused.
"But...if you can eat fruits and vegetables, then why do you need meat?" My smiled seemed to fallen, but just gave her the straight answer.
"Due to the fact that meat has so much protein and amino acids, we eat it because it's associated in building muscle mass. It's the reason I'm so...muscular, along with exercise of course. Without it, I would be really sick to a point where I'm near death." Ok I lied about the last part, but I didn't really talk about my body, because it's sometimes all the girls look at. They never see me for my personality. I looked at Fluttershy with the most pleading eyes I could muster. Eventually she sighed and answered.
"It's ok, I understand. Bears eat meat as well, so I'll see what I can do." I felt so happy I couldn't help but hug her.
"Thank you Fluttershy! You have no idea how much this means to me!" She was surprised of my course of action but soon hugged me back. I couldn't care less if my face was heating up, because I think her face was red as well. After realization struck us, we both glanced at each other trying to avoid eye contact. Fluttershy was twirling her hair (or is it mane because she's a pony) with her finger with a blush on her cheeks while I was covering my face with my hat. I cleared my throat and began to speak.
"So...you wanna go back to the living room?" I simply asked. She nodded as a "yes" probably because she was embarrassed to say anything. We went back and saw Twilight and Spike talking amongst themselves. They looked at us and smiled.
"So, what were you two talking about?" Fluttershy was about to speak but stopped her with my hand as if I was saying "let me handle this".
"It was about my digestive habits and I told her I eat meat." They both gasped in horror. "Let me finish, I told Fluttershy that without meat, there would be no protien for me to have, thus, will have a chance of sickness." They seemed to calm down when I told them that, so that was good.
"Why don't we take our leave? We still got many sights to see." I suggested. Twilight nodded as she got up and stretched the sore muscles as did Spike. Looked at Fluttershy and smiled.
"Thank you Fluttershy, I thank you enough for this wonderful privilege." I almost teared up, seeing how happy I was.
"It's no problem, I will always help a creature in need." That's it. I'm going to have a heart attack because of how adorable that sounded. I finally waved goodbye as she waved back. I jogged to catch up with Twilight.
"Well, you two seemed to have hit it off." She said with a smile.
"Oh you have no idea." I said as I gave a dreamy smile. Spike seemed to snicker at the idea while I just glared at him.
"So where to next?" I asked. Spike had an idea that made him smile so hard.
"OH OH! Can we go visit Rarity? It's not that far from here, please?" Spike gave Twilight the puppy eyes, which I found pretty funny. Twilight just rolled her eyes and chuckled.
"Sure, why not?" Spike pumped his fist in the air and gave a "yes" in victory. I looked at the bushes and saw some bunny ears and yellow fur. Oh yeah I forgot those animatronics were here. So with that, I followed them to out set destination.
We finally made it threw minutes of walking and looked at the building in front of us. The size of the building just made me whistle. Now that I look at it, the roof of it reminds me of a Carousel, like those door top things on the merry-go-round.
"Wow, this place is huge." I said astonished. Twilight shrugged her shoulders.
"It's not as bad when you get to see it." Twilight knocked on the door only to heard a reply.
"Welcome to the Carousel Boutique, where everything is chique, unique, and magnifique. So what can I do for you today?" She turned around and saw Twilight and Spike with her.
"Oh Twilight dear, fancy seeing you here. What can you for you?" She asked. Twilight gestured to me and spoke.
"Rarity, this is Anthony. He was the one snooping around us when we were searching for clues." Twilight said. Rarity looked at me as I stratched my head.
"Well I wouldn't call it snooping around. I'd say that I was wondering what you girls were doing." I realized what said and looked at Twilight. "That doesn't really help my case does it?" Twilight mouthed a "not really" as I turned red in the face.
"Anyway, I'm Anthony." I gave a small chuckle as I raised my hand for her to shake.
"Pleasure to meet your acquaintance." She said with a smile. I took a good look at her and was surprised what she looked like. She had a white marshmallow coat with a curly dark purple hair (or is it mane?). She wore black heels and spandex on her legs. Going up, she wore a black skirt showing off her curves and thighs. She was also wearing a white plain shirt on the inside and a black buttoned-up shirt on the outside. Whoever this girl was, she was not afraid to show off her body, which made my face darken. Everytime she would talk, I noticed she had this somewhat british accent like Toy Bonnie had, it wasn't as heavy, but you can still heard it, kind of like that Blanche girl in Street Car Named Desire. Eventually she let us in to the house as I took a look around the house.
"So Rarity, what do you like to do for a living?" I gently asked. Rarity looked at me.
"If you would like to know, I am a fashion designer, I can make an outfit that's bland and make it into something spectacular." She said. I scratched my head again.
"I guess the boutique thing and the dresses kind of gave it away huh?" I asked. Rarity put a finger on her chin.
"Yes, I do see how that would make sense." She said. Twilight put her hand on Rarity's shoulder and spoke.
"We brought Anthony here because we wanted to show him around Ponyville, and Spike wanted to see you." Rarity looked at Spike and smiled.
"Aww! Spikey-Wikey came to visit me, how sweet of you." Rarity went to hug Spike and had a huge blush on his cheeks. I looked at him and gave him an evil smirk and he just glared at me. I clear throat and spoke to Rarity.
"So...is there anything were going to be doing or what? I don't mean to sound impatient but..." I kind of just stopped there, fearing what I would say something silly and hurtful. Rarity gave a thoughtful look.
"Well we could always take of that fashion crisis you're wearing." She said. I was surprised at her suggestion. I looked at what I was wearing a looked back at Rarity.
"I-It's not that bad!" Being the fashion expert she was, I seemed doubtful. "Is it?" I asked her. She giggled at the question and walked towards me.
"Come now, I can help you put on something more appropriate if you like. I just need you to take off your clothes." I just stood there, trying to comprehend what Rarity had said.
"What?" Spike was snickering at what I said.
"Oh don't be so meek, I just need to take your measurements." My face turned red for a bit, but soon agree to it.
"Ok, but I'm keeping my underwear on."
"But of course dear." I soon started to take off my clothes but felt uncomfortable doing it. For one thing I'm taking off my clothing in front of a completely different species, and 2: I'm doing it in front of two girls nonetheless. I don't have a choice do I? Oh well. As I was done taking off my shirt I noticed Twilight accidentally dropped her notepad and quill. She covered her face with her hands and had a noticeable blush on her face as Spike had a look of jealousy. I rolled my eyes in the inside.
'Ugh...here we go again.' I thought. I never liked when girls only see me for my body and not my personality, it always bites me the wrong way. Anyway, I saw Rarity walking back with the measuring tape, only to walk on me bare chested.
"Oh...m-my." Her face started to heat up as did I. "I-I never knew you could be so...muscular." I've never so flushed in my entire life, well except when I first met Fluttershy.
"C-Can you just take my measurements please?" I squeaked out. Rarity snapped out of her trance only to blush more darkly.
"Oh yes, um sure." Twilight seemed to calm down as did we. I was still trying to distracted myself from Rarity being so up close to me. Thankfully something did make we wonder about something, which were the floating objects flying above.
"Who's doing that?" I couldn't help but ask. Rarity seemed to raise an eyebrow.
"Doing what?" She asked.
"That thing with the floating objects?" I asked.
"That would be me darling."
"How are you doing it?"
"With magic of course." The answer seemed to catch me of guard. Twilight saw my puzzled look as she was picking up her notepad and quill.
"Do you have magic in your world?" Twilight asked. I shrugged my shoulders, which made me accidentally break Rarity's "no movement" rule.
"It's not that we don't have magic in our world, it's the fact that the only magic I've seen is just illusionary." I've never been to a magic act before, but the evidence on the Internet says that it's fake. "How do you guys use magic around here?" I looked at Twilight.
"Well, because of the horns on our heads, we are able to do many magical things. For instance, what you see Rarity doing is levitation, our basic everyday spell everypony uses, the more advance spells such as teleportation and transformation, ponies learn on their own accord." Huh. You learn something everyday, but another question seemed tom pop up in my head.
"So...if I were to encounter a horned pony, what are they called?"
"Oh, me and Rarity are unicorns." Unicorns?
"Are there more of unicorns here?"
"Why of course dear."
"But me and Twilight were at Fluttershy's cottage before we got here, and saw her with wings on her back. So...does that make her a pegasus?" I asked. Twilight and Rarity looked at me with complete awe.
"Yes...how did you know?" Twilight asked.
"Well...just like dragons, unicorns and pegasuses-"
"Pegasi." Twilight corrected.
"...What?" Was all I asked.
"The correct term for multiple winged ponies is pegasi." She said again.
"Sorry. Again, much like dragons, unicorns and...pegasi are known as a myth in our world. The only difference is that a pegasus is described as a winged horse, not a pony." Wow, I never really thought I needed that type of knowledge, but I needed to get rid of it anyway.
"Fascinating." Twilight said as she was scribbling in her notepad. When I looked down I saw Rarity rolling up the measuring tape.
"There you go sweetie, you can move again." Rarity said. I took a big sigh of relief.
"Ugh..finally, I can't feel my arms." Rarity giggled at my attempt of humor as tried to stretch it.
"Since I have your measurements, I think it would take about a few days to get the clothes ready." Rarity said. I gave a "thank you" and started to put on my clothes on again.
"Well, I think that will pretty much covers up our visit, thanks Rarity." Twilight said as Rarity nodded in understanding.
"Thank you so much for the clothes, how much do you want for it?" I asked her, but Rarity just waved her hand.
"Nonsense! Think of it as a welcoming gift." I widened my eyes.
"Really?! No I shouldn't really." I said sheepishly.
"Don't be so modest, trust me, it's on me." Rarity smiled which made me blush a bit.
"Thanks, your too generous." I said.
"I get the alot." She smiled. I walked out the door before I padded Spike on the shoulder.
"I can see why she's a keeper." I smirked while Spike just turned red. I pushed him out of the door as Twilight followed us out. I looked all around the town of Ponyville and mumbled to myself.
"I wonder where I'll go next."
