A Rescue Mission

"D-D-Daddy?" Lightning stuttered in fear of the Pegasus Stallion in front of him.

Lightning's father, Cold Wind, gave his son a wicked evil smirk.

"Thought you've seen the last of me did you?" He said cruelly before grabbing Lightning's mane making the small colt yelp in pain. "I've been looking all over the bucking place for you boy!"

Lightning couldn't do anything but cry in pain and fear.

"The royal guard showed up at my house months ago and tried to arrest me. Then they tell me you've been adopted by somepony named Fluttershy!" Cold wind snapped

Lightning still said nothing as he tried as hard as he could to not look into his fathers eyes.

"I've been forced to live in this old piece of junk, and It's all because of you!" Cold Wind Screamed making Lightning cry even harder "You're the reason your mothers dead and You're the reason I'm here now! Ever since then, I swore I would find because If you wanted to ruin my old life, I'm going to ruin you're new one!"

Lightning continued to cry and he was barely able to say, "P-Please D-Daddy, d-don't h-hurt m-me! L-let m-me g-go! I w-wanna g-go h-home!"

"Shut up!" Cold wind screamed as he struck Lightning hard across the face with his hoof "The only place you're going you little mistake is the basement!"

Cold Wind the grabbed Lightning by his mane and dragged him to the basement door. However neither of them were aware of a certain baby dragon running back to Ponyville because he had seen and heard the whole thing.

Cold Wind kicked the basement door open and threw his son inside making him land hard on the cold ground. He quickly flew over to a nearby box and tied Lightning's hooves and wings together before Lightning could even move. He then saw the necklace around Lightning's neck.

"Aww, what's this? Is this from your new Momma?" Cold Wind asked his son as he grabbed the necklace and snapped off of Lightning's neck. "You actually think she loves you? Give me a break I bet she can't even look at your ugly pathetic little face."

Lightning continued to shake and cry as he remembered those exact words coming from Diamond Tiara and from his father months before he ran away. Cold Wind took the necklace and grabbed a hammer from another nearby box.

"It would serve you right if I smashed this piece of junk!" He snapped angrily before dropping the necklace and smashing it to tiny little pieces with the hammer.

Lightning felt his own heart shatter as bits of the beautiful crystal from the necklace scattered in front of him. Cold Wind glared at his son before going up the steps.

"Not a sound, you little runt, not one word or you will be sorry." He snapped before slamming the door Leaving Lightning in the darkness.

Lightning quietly cried over several things, the shattered necklace, the fear of darkness, the fear if his father, but most importantly the fear of never seeing his friends or family again. As his fear of the darkness began to overwhelm him, he began to quietly cry out for the one pony he wished was by his side right now.



At the gala Scootaloo was running frantically through the castle looking for Fluttershy while still crying and screaming her name as loud as she could. She eventually arrived at the ballroom and finally saw the mare she was looking for standing with her friends.

"Fluttershy!" Scootaloo screamed as she ran towards her.

One of the mares remembered her from earlier and began to snap at her rudely.

"Young filly, you had best-"

"Shut Up!" Scootaloo shouted at the mare angrily before looking at Fluttershy.

"Scootaloo why are you crying and what happen-" Fluttershy cut herself off when she noticed someone was missing. Her fears of a couple night's ago began to haunt her once more.

"S-Scootaloo, w-wheres Lightning!?" Fluttershy stammered at her fears began to overwhelm her.

Scootaloo's composure crumbled once more as she fell to the floor and cried at Fluttershy's hooves.

"He's been foalnapped, Fluttershy! This big Pegasus attacked him and put him in a bag before flying off. I tried to stop him but I just couldn't do it!"

Everyone gasped upon Hearing those words and Fluttershy fell silent and Lightheaded. She felt like she was going to faint her son was just foalnapped, but why would anyone want to foalnap a colt as sweet as Lightning? However Fluttershy's began to break down while sobbing and Hyperventilating and Rainbow Dash put her hooves on her friends shoulders.

"Fluttershy, calm down, I'm going to promise you right now, we'll get Lightning back!" She said trying to help Fluttershy calm down a little bit.

"Rainbow's Right," Twilight said as calmly as she could even though she was scared "We just need to find out who took Lightning and where they took him."

Just as those words left her mouth, Princess Celestia called out to Twilight and her friends while running into the room as fast as she could go.

"Twilight, I have an urgent letter for you." The princess said before giving the letter to her student.

Twilight opened the letter and gasped in shock and horror after reading the first sentence.

"Girls. this letters from Spike, He said that Lightning was foalnapped by his father."

The rest of the friends gasped and Fluttershy began to tremble in fear as Twilight continued.

"It says he has Lightning in a house a few miles just outside Ponyville."

Scootaloo and her friends were now to scared to speak as Fluttershy began to hyperventilate once more.

"My baby boy's been foalnapped by that monster!? We have to get him back!" She screamed before crying uncontrollably

Applejack wrapped her forelegs around Fluttershy and hushed her.

"We will Sugarcube," Applejack cooed softly "I promise you we'll get him back."

Twilight looked at the three scared fillies and calmly spoke to them.

"Girls, I'm going to teleport all of you to my Library. I want all of you to stay inside with Spike. I don't want any of you to get hurt if something happens. Lock the door and I'll come see you when we have Lightning back."

The three nodded their heads solemnly as tears began to flow out of Scootaloo's eyes once more.

Twilight put her hoof under the young filly's chin and looked her in the eyes.

"I promise we'll get Lightning back Scootaloo." she said gently before giving the filly a small hug.

Twilight teleported the fillies away before looking at her friends.

"Alright girls lets go get Lightning back!" she said with a determined look on her face.

"That low down varmint that has him is in for a good old fashioned bucking!" Applejack said angrily earning a nod of Agreement from Rainbow Dash.

The main six threw off their dresses and ran from the gala with looks of anger and determination on their faces.

Fluttershy was ready to snap but kept her composure as she said to herself, "Don't worry, Lightning, my precious baby boy, Momma's coming!"
