Chapter 10, Hair Clip, Feather, Granny Smith.

Chapter 10, Hair Clip, Feather, Granny.
Celestia's sun was beginning to set as Matt waved goodbye to Cheerilee as he made his way through the market place. As he walked through he notice somepony selling hair clips.

Matt walked over and looked at each one of the hair clips that had a red apple "How much do you want for these?"

"Two bits." The mare said. Matt pulled the bits out of his bag and paid the mare and took the clips.

Matt walked into the home of the Apple family as he looked around to see the lights were out.

"They must be asleep." Matt made his way up the stairs as he figured he would take a shower in the morning. He pulled the blankets down off his bed as he climbed in to get some sleep.
The Next Day.

Matt followed Honey Blossom out into the apple orchard. Honey Blossom had Applejack on her side as they were picking apple's for an apple pie Honey Blossom wanted to make for everypony.

"Oh, Before i forget." Matt placed his saddle bag down and went through it till he found the hair clips "I saw these and thought they would look cute on her."

Blossom looked at them and smiled "Ya have good taste."

"Thanks." Honey took the clips and placed little Applejack down as she placed them in her hair "Don't you look cute." Matt smiled as she placed her back in her side pouch and they both continued to pick apples.

Matt took notice green eyes moving along the tree lines.

Before Matt knew it they came running out of the woods.

"RUN!" Honey yelled as she took off running making Applejack start crying.

Matt took off running along side Honey Blossom. Matt looked behind them to see wood chasing after them "W-What are these things!?"

"They are Timber Wolves!" Hone Blossom said as she notice them getting closer to them.

Timber wolves cut them off surrounding them.

"We're trapped!" Blossom yelled as she stopped in the tracks.

Matt stopped in his tracks as he watched the Timber wolves surround them.

"What do we do?" Blossom asked scared.

Matt looked around and notice the cliff side. He spread his wings as he flapped them and began to hover, He picked up Blossom and used all of his strength to pick her up and get to the top of the cliff.

Matt lowered her as they took off running.

The Timber wolves manged to get up the cliff side and continued to chase after them.

"They must really want pony meat!" Matt said as he could see the house just up ahead.

Before both of their eyes a trail of fire flew high in front of them making them quickly slam there hoofs to the ground to stop.

Matt looked at the wall of fire "W-Where did this come from!?"

"From me!" Matt looked to see a black dragon standing there as the timber wolves came up to his side.

"What do you want from us!?" Blossom asked.

"I want you dead!" He roared making Applejack cry even harder.

Matt stepped in front of Honey Blossom and Applejack as he spread his wings "You'll have to go through me!" Matt glared at the black dragon making him laugh.

"You think you'll be able to stop me?" He said as he brought out his hand and showed off his razor sharp claws "One swipe from these and your dead."

Matt flapped his wings as hard as he could making a whole in the fire allow Blossom to jump through it as she took off running.

"You'll pay for that!" The dragon yelled as he sent his timber wolves towards Matt.

Matt kicked and bucked each one that came near him. One manged to bite down onto his wing making Matt yelled in pain as he slammed his hoofs onto it's head breaking it into thousands of twigs.

"I didn't travel back in time to be stopped by a pegasus!" The dragon yelled as he sent more Timber wolves towards Matt.

Matt continued to fight off each one as they tried to bite him.

Matt bucked them right and left, He could feel his strength running low as he felt the pain in his wing get even worst.

The dragon let out a roar as he rushed towards Matt grabbing him by the throat and slamming him into the ground "I WILL END THIS!"

Matt couldn't breath as the claws around his throat got tighter and tighter "Don't give up Matt, If you wish to see Applejack again, You must fight." Matt heard the female voice from his dream speak to him "Use your elements. Allow them to help you."

Matt closed his eyes as he tried to focus on his elements. The dragon began to laugh as he saw his eyes close.

There came a light from around Matt's two front hoofs.

The dragon notice the lights as his hand began to burn. He roared in pain as he grabbed his hand as he saw the glowing light around Matt's neck.

"I-It can't be! The elements of Love, Courage, Hope!"

Matt got back onto his hoofs as he looked at the dragon, His eyes glowing pure white "Let's end this!" Matt rushed towards the dragon as the dragon's hand began to glow.

"Not today!" He sliced his hand in the air as a portal opened "If i can't kill her in this time! I'll kill a different one!" He jumped through. Matt grabbed his tail as the Timber wolves be sucked in as well.

The dragon tried to kick Matt off his tail but it was no use as he felt Matt's elements stinging his scales.

"LET GO OF ME!" He yelled.

"NEVER!" Matt yelled as he climb the dragon's tail.

The dragon kicked Matt right in the face making him hit a few Timber wolves as they fell out of the time vortex.

"With him out of the picture i shall kill two birds with one stone!" He laughed as he flew through time.
Honey Blossom, Yellow Gala and Granny Smith stood where the fire once was as they looked at the battle ground.

Hone Blossom notice a few of Matt's feather's on the ground.

"He's gone." Blossom said as she held the feather in her hoof.

"He died protecting you." Yellow said "We'll give him a apple send off."
That night Cheerilee and Cindy stood at the edge of the apple orchard.

Cheerilee couldn't believe it, The stallion she had a crush on was dead.

Cindy looked at her little sister as she gave her a tissue "I know he meant a lot to you." Cindy said as she pulled her sister into a hug.

Honey watched as he husband buried two of the three feather's they found into the ground.

"Goodbye Matt, May you rest." Yellow said as he shoveled the last of the dirt onto the box.

Honey walked up to Cheerilee "Here." Cheerilee looked at Honey as she notice her holding a brown feather.

Cheerilee took the feather in her hoof as she looked at Honey "T-Thanks."
Matt slowly felt himself waking up as he felt the pain of his body. He slowly opened his eyes to see he was in a room he has never seen before. He slowly went to move when he felt a jolt of pain run through his body "Don't ya try ta move." Matt looked to see a cute mare next to him as she placed a hoof on his chest "Now relax and just rest."

"W-Where am i?" He asked.

"Ya on our farm." The mare said as she removed the old rag off his forehead and placed a new one wet rag onto his "Ya don't need ta worry, We're friendly."

"Wait... She looks familiar." Matt thought as he tried to figure out who she was.

"My name is Granny Smith. What's yours."

"Granny! No way! I've traveled back even farther back in time! I need to come up with a fake name! and fast!" Matt mind was rushing as he tried to figure out a good fake pony name.

"N-Names Star, Star Lander." Matt said "That's a good name... Right?"

"Nice ta meet ya Star Lander, Mind if ah call ya Star?"


"Well, Ah'll let ya get some sleep, If ya need anything i'll be right over there." Granny Smith pointed to a small coat that was sitting off near a wall "If ya need anything just call for me."

"Will do." Matt watched as Granny made her way over to the coat and got ready for bed.


"Night." Matt closed his eyes as his mind was racing.
Matt found himself standing back in the field of pink blossoms again as he saw the white mare.

"Hello Matt, Or should i say Star Lander." She said while chuckling at the last part.

"I didn't want to use my real name since later one she'll meet me again." Matt said as he watched her sit down next to him "Mind telling me why i'm further in the past?"

"Darkfire opened a rift in time, And you were sent back here." She said.

"Did Honey and Applejack make it okay?"

"They are safe and sound, For now." She said looking down at Matt "Granny Smith is now in danger."

"You mean... He'll come after her?"

"Yes, And it's up to you to protect her."

"Last time i tried to protect somepony i nearly died!" Matt yelled.

"Yet, Here you are alive."

"How am i suppose to protect her if i don't know how to use my elements?"

"Easy, I will train you, Every night you go to sleep, I shall show you what you need to learn in order to use them." She said with a smile "Then, When the time is right you'll know how to use them."

"And you didn't want to show me how to use them before i fought Darkfire?" Matt asked a little mad.

"You were needed to come here." She said as she stood "I better be off, Your waking up, Remember to keep an eye on Granny Smith."

"I will." Matt said as he felt his body pull him out of his dream world.
Matt slowly opened his eyes as he saw the morning sun shine through the window.

"I hope Applejack is alright." Matt thought as he looked over to see Granny Smith still sleeping.
