One of Those Days

I woke to the sun shining through the small crack between the curtains and straight onto my eyes. AsI lean up again the headrest I rub my eyes to clear then and let out a yawn.
“Oh man, I haven’t slept that well in a while” As I stretched I flinched in pain as my stomach cried out. I looked at the damage and saw it was bandaged completely.
‘How could I not of noticed that?’ I slowly poked around the area flinching at every touch.
‘I must have crashed into something hard!’ I then began to look for any further damage. Myarms were lightly bruised and had one or two cuts on them which healed by themself, my bag seems to have taken the brunt of the attack with a massive bruise running the whole length of my back.
‘How could my spine not be broken? It looks like it was attacked with baseball bats for a night!’ I then remembered seeing blood before I died, or blacked out, I've still got to ask about that. I raised my hand to the back of my head, instantly regretting doing so as a sudden headache washed through my head causing me to cry out in pain.
“Damn it! I take it back, my head is the worst!”
The door then shot open as...’Oh what was her name….Cadence wasn’t it?’ galloped in, thinking I was in trouble. Seeing as I wasn’t, I apologized for spooking her.
“Sorry about me screaming, I was checking out the damage.”

“Oh, thank Celestia; I thought you were in trouble!”

“Well, thank you for your concern, Princess.”

She chuckled, “please, Cadence is just fine.”

I let a small smirk appear across my face. “Ok, Cadence, now if you don’t mind me asking…where and I and erm…what exactly are you?”

She looked at me with confusion. “What do you mean, what am I? I’m an Alicorn. Haven’t you ever heard of them before?”

“Not really, where I am from, ponies don’t exactly have wings or a horn…or talk, for that matter.”

Her eyes shot open upon hearing this. “Really? Where in Equestria are you from?”

‘Equestria? Where on earth is that?’ “I currently live in Bolton, but….” I caught her expression, staring at me with the most confused face I have ever seen. I let another smirk go across my face.

“You know, make faces like that and it will be stuck like that…” before I could finish that, another pony shot out of from the door shouting “FOREVEEEEEEEEEER!!!” I jumped on my bed.

“HOLY MOTHER OF JEBUS!” I screamed as I caught my breathing. Cadence was in the same state as me, probably a bit more controlled then my reaction, but still shocked no less. She then disappeared from sight.

“Erm…w…who was that?”

“That was one of my sister-in-laws friends.” She said calmly recovered from the shock.

“Should I be worried?”

“As long as you don’t try to figure out what she does, you should be fine,” said a mysterious voice from out of nowhere. I looked at Cadence with an expression saying ‘Who said that’?

“Come on in, Twilight.” After that I looked at the door as a new pony trotted in.Thisone had a purple coat and mane with a pink line going through both. She looked at me with fascinated eyes.

“Hi, my name is Twilight Sparkle,” she said as she stuck her hoof out to me. "What's your name?”
I took her hoof in my hand and shook it.

“Simon, nice to meet you Miss Sparkle.”

She smiled and I think I noticed a small blush appear as well. “Please, just Twilight is fine.”

I smiled. “Twilight it is then.”

I then noticed other voices coming from behind the door.

“I take it Twilight here isn’t the only friend you’ve brought with you?”

Twilight rubbed the back of her neck.

“Yeah, once I got word of somepony new who isn’t a pony, they kind of decided to come. Besides, I think you’d like one of them.”

I raised an eyebrow at her. “What do you mean?”

Covering her mouth to prevent laughing, she said, “you’ll see…” She then turned around and looked at the door which opened on its own. No kidding…it just opened. I stared blankly at the door with my mouth agape.

“H…how’d you do that?!” She turned to look at me.

“What, I just opened the door with my magic…you do know what magic is, don’t you?”

“…We’ll get to that, first you have people waiting.”

She nodded and called out to her friends. They walked in single file and stood in a line side by side. Twilight then introduced each of them. First was a white pony, who also had a horn, with a purple mane all styled like she was rich and glamorous. I also noticed she had 3 diamonds on her rear end. I took a mental note to ask about them.

“This is Rarity, she is the local fashion designer in Ponyville.”

“Nice to meet you Miss Rarity. My name is Simon.”

“Nice too meet you too. It's good to finally meet somepony with manners.”

I smiled at the compliment. Next was an orange pony who hard neither a horn or wings. 'Must be an ordinary pony. About time I met something ordinary’. Well, when I say ordinary, she was wearing a cowboy hat…’or would it be cowgirl?…I don’t know.’ with blonde mane done up in…hang on, a pony wearing her mane and tail in a ponytail….’PONYTAILCEPTION!’ She also had three apples on her rear. ‘Seriously what’s up with that?’

“This is Applejack. She is the owner of Sweet Apple Acres in Ponyville.”

“Howdy! Nice ta meet ‘cha,” she said in a southern tone and tilted her hat to me. I was shocked to learn that this place had accents...I really shouldn’t be, I’m lying in a bed surrounded by ponies.

“Nice too meet you too. Again, Simon,” I nodded back to her.

Next was a cyan pony with wings. Shelooked at me suspiciously, narrowing her eyes and staring at me. Shehad a multi-coloured mane and tail, which looked like bed hair. She had a cloud with a rainbow lightning bolt coming out of it…‘okay, that’s the weirdest one I’ve seen.’

“This is Rainbow Dash. She is the local weather pony in Ponyville.” She didn’t say anything, just kept staring daggers into me, so I spoke up to seize the awkwardness.

“Hey, is everything alright?” She then flew up to my face, her nose touching mine.

“…erm, hello?” she continued to stare daggers into me. I looked towards the others with a ‘Help me’ face on. This was the cue for Applejack to pull Rainbow’s tail, causing her to crash to the ground.

“Stop it, Rainbow! He ain’t done nothing wrong!” Rainbow simply looked at me again and flew out of the window.

“Did I say anything bad?”

Twilight spoke up. “Rainbow Dash is a very loyal pony, she doesn’t trust people that easily. Anyway, let's continue!” I looked around in confusion.

“ no-one else is he...” But before I could finish I heard something that made me turn straight to the door
with a smile plastered on my face.

“Ruby?” As soon as I said that, Ruby came running into the room and jumped onto the bed and began licking me all over my face. I was so happy I didn’t notice another pony walk in; I was too busy hugging and stroking my dog.

After about five to ten minutes of hugging, Ruby settled down and slept across my stomach, causing slight pain, but it didn’t matter. I then looked at the new pony that entered just after Ruby did. She had a colour that very much resembled butter, and her mane and tail were pink and she had 3 butterflies on her rear. She too had wings. I presumed she brought my dog here.

“I take it you're the one I have to thank for taking care of Ruby?” she smiled at me.

“Yes, when I got told that a dog was found and injured I rushed to help her…I hope that was okay?” I was confused to why she asked this but didn’t pursue it seeing as she looked after Ruby.

“It was, and thank you…sorry, I don’t think we’ve been introduced each other yet, my name’s
Simon. What's yours?"

“Erm…it’s…it’s Fluttershy.”

Everybody looked at her in shock which confused me until Twilight spoke up. “Now that you’ve met everypony…well apart from Pinkie Pie, but knowing her you’ll meet her soon. We'll be going now, but is it ok if I see you tomorrow to ask some questions about you?”

“Don’t see why not, just pop round whenever and I’ll happily answer any questions you have."

Twilight smiled. "Great, I’ll see you then.”
She waved good bye as the other ponies walked with her. Something tells me that tomorrow is going to be a long day of explaining things.
