Chapter 3. Letter's. A Talk With Big Mac.

Chapter 3. Letter's. A Talk With Big Mac.
Matt placed his saddle bag on his back "Alright, That should be everything." Matt said out loud as he made his way out of the room and downstairs.

He came to a halt to see Granny Smith standing there. "And where do ya think your goin'?" She asked.

"I'm going to Canterlot for a few days. I've told Honey Blossom and Yellow Gala about this." Matt said to the old mare.

"Well ya should at least say goodbye." She said as she got close to Matt "A kiss would be nice."

"WHAT! Wait... SHE HAS BEEN HITTING ON ME SINCE I'VE BEEN HERE! I KNEW IT!" Matt yelled inside his head. "Listen, I have a mare i love very much."

"Oh ah know, I heard the story from Yellow." She said getting closer.

"Well... You can see i'm not one to chea-" He was cut off my the old mares lips.

"Ewwwwwww, I can feel her fake teeth!" Matt thought feeling sick. She pulled away and slowly made her way towards her chair "See ya when ya get back."

Matt had a face full of horror as he took off running.

"MOM! You are down right cruel!" Honey said to her mother as she walked down the stairs.

"Ah was only messing with him. He knows it was a joke." Granny said with a chuckled.

Honey rolled her eyes as she made her way into the kitchen.
Matt sat at the train station.

"Okay, I need to do some research. I'll need to visit the royal library then see if i can find this mirror Aj told me about and see if it could be used to open a door way to my world." He saw the train coming into view. "Then i need to write a letter to Princess Luna. I know she won't be here so i'll need to pull a back to the future letter. Now i just need to figure out when to send it."

He boarded the train and got ready for a long train ride.

As he sat there his mind wondered to Applejack. "I wonder how she's holding up?" He saw the rain come down hitting the train as he closed his eyes to take a nap.

Matt felt somepony give him a light shake "Wake up sir. Your in Canterlot now."

Matt eyes shot open and he looked to to see a mare "T-Thanks."

"No problem." He notice something odd. The mare turned and on her side was a little foal. She was light gray and her eyes were... Crossed "Awe, She's so cute." Matt thought as she saw the mare walked away.

He grabbed his bag and made his way off the train. He was in awe as he saw the buildings and all the castle all in view "Wow, This place looks amazing." He walked the streets of Canterlot looking for a hotel to stay at. "If i was a hotel where would i be?" He wasn't watching where he was going and slammed hard into somepony. Matt fell back "Watch where you are going!" The mare yelled.

"Sorry, It won't happen again." He watched as the mare got up off the ground as she brushed off her mane.

He notice a stroll next to her and he notice the little foal inside. Her mane was light pink and her coat was a pure white "Are you okay Fleur Dis Lee?" The little foal just smiled "You are lucky you didn't hurt my baby." She glared at Matt as Matt rubbed his neck.

"I'm sorry... I was trying to find and hotel and i didn't see where i was going." Matt said scared for his life.

"Your forgiven for now, There is hotel called The Sleepy Pony INN just up the road here." She said as she started to walked pass him "Be more careful in the future." She said to Matt as she left him.

"Well, Off i go!" Matt made his way down the street and he found the INN "Nice looking place."

He watched as all the mares and stallions walked in and out "I wonder how many bits it's going to cost for me to stay here?" He thought to himself as he walked into the INN.

"Hello, Welcome to The Sleepy Pony INN, How may i help you?" The mare asked with a bright smile.

"Hello, I would like one room for two nights?" He asked.

"Okay..." She dug through her paper's and found a room "Here we are, I have a one bedroom if you want it, The total cost for two nights will be... 100 Bits." She said.

Matt dug into his bag and pulled out the bits and placed them on the counter. She took the bits and gave him his key "Room 203 is your room, Its on the third floor. If you need anything come down here and one of us will help you with anything you need, Enjoy your stay." She said.

Matt thanked her for the room and made his way to his room.

He opened the door to his room to see the one bed in the room. "Well, This place looks a lot cleaner then the hotels in my world." He walked over to the window and pulled them open to see the castle behind the hotel "Talk about a great view." He walked away from the window and placed his bag on the bed as he walked into the bathroom to get a quick shower and to get the smell of train off his fur.

After his shower he made his way over to the bag to get his bag when he notice a letter sitting neatly on the bed. "Okay... That's just freaky." Matt thought as he picked up the letter. It fell back onto the bed "I'm never going to understand how they pick things up with there hoofs!" Matt yelled in his head as he manged to open the letter.

"Dear Matthew.

It is I, Princess Luna. Before you asked how i manged to give you a letter when i am clearly not here in this time period, I used a spell that allowed me to send you a letter through time. I'm here to give you what you need as in instructed in your letter you have sent me, And thanks for the date and time to send you this letter. The book you seek is in the north wing. Look under portal spells. And as for where the mirror is, It's located in the west wings. I hope this helps you return to your time line and i will wait for you to return so i may met such a brave stallion.

Sign Princess Luna.

P.S. Oh, And remember to remain hidden at all times while in the west wing, My sister likes to take walked through there through the day. Oh and one last thing, The doors will have a sun on the front of them. Be safe my friend in time."

Matt blinked a few times. "Okay, That was weird." Matt placed the letter on the night stand for later as he made his way out of the room and to the castle.

Matt sat in the north wing looking through books that said 'Portals' "Okay, This is boring! How do i know what spell i'm loo- Oh here it is!" Matt looked at the spell "This spell allows the user to pull out somepony who has been lost or sent to another world. This spell only works when the user knows the pony that is missing, If he/she doesn't know the pony, The pony might be sent through time. Please use carefully." Matt ripped out the spell and placed it inside his bag as he closed the book "Alright, Now i know how i got here in this time line, So i have to make sure this happens." Matt made his way out of the North wing and snuck through the castle and found himself in the west wing looking for a door with a sun on it.

He found the door he was looking for as he snuck inside. What he saw put him in awe.

Inside the room was a whole room with mirrors all standing in rows accept one, This one mirror stood in the middle of the room.

He walked up to the mirror and looked at his reflection "I still can't believe i look like a pony." His pony form changed and there stood his human self, Matt took a step back in shock "I-I think i found the mirror!"

"This room is off limits to the public." Said a female voice. Matt turned his head to see none other then the Princess herself "Explain yourself."

Matt mind was racing "I-I was looking for the bathroom and got lost." Matt said trying to make it sound believable.

She stood there looking at him "The bathroom would be down the hall to the right." She said to him.

"T-Thank you Princess Celestia!" Matt bowed and made his way pass her and towards the door.

"Wait." Matt froze, His mind racing as she walked up next to him "You must be wondering what this room is." She said.

Matt turned her and looked at her "This is where you keep the spare mirror's... Right?"

Celestia was kind surprise that he was going with her lie "Y-yes, That's what this room is."

"I figured as much." Matt said "Well, I better be off before i make a mess in here." He raced out of the room and down the hall.

Celestia stood there for a moment before she looked at the mirror in the middle of the room "He must have saw himself as a human." She saw herself in the mirror as a human. "If only ponies knew about these world." She walked out of the room.
Matt got back to his hotel room as he began his work writing his letter's to Princess Luna and Princess Twilight Sparkle.

After awhile of trying to write with his mouth he manged to write readable letter's "I can read that, Now to figure out a way to send them." Matt placed the letter's in his bag as he notice the sun slowly going down and the moon being to raise. He notice the face on the moon "The mare in the moon, Sounds kinda like the man on the moon." Matt chuckled to himself as he got ready for bed. "Tomorrow i'll find a way to mail these letter's and then i'll explore Canterlot some more."
Applejack rushed home.

She found Big Mac out in the fields doing his apple bucking.

"BIG MAC!" Applejack yelled as she ran up towards him.

She stopped in front of him huffing and puffing trying to catch her breath.

"Ya okay sis?" Mac asked.

She went to speak but couldn't. "Take it easy sis, Take deep and slow breaths." Mac said.

Applejack began to breath normally as she looked at her brother "Did ya know a Matt before ya heard about my Matt?"

Big Mac brought a hoof to his chin as he went through his memory's "Yeah, I did." He said looking at his sister "But it was a long time ago. I was just a colt then."

"What do ya remember about him?" She asked.

"Well." He search through his memory's "Ah remember Ma and Pa bring him home because he fell asleep while flyin', Mom would always talk with him after he got done working and they would talk about random things. I remember he came home once with cuts and bruises on his body and something about taking on three stallions. And ma kept going on about how ya kicked when he was around and it made him blush for some strange reason." Mac said trying to go over some of the memory's for his child hood.

"Was there anything else?"

"Well, Ah don't really remember much about him." Mac said. He notice the sad look on her face. "What's wrong?"

"Ah don't know, Ah can't make heads or tails of what's going on." Applejack said to her brother "Matt's missing and all of a sudden this Matt from the past is hunting me." She said "Ah don't know if this Matt in the past is my Matt or just some random pony."

"Granny Smith should have know more then me. After all, She did kiss him." Mac said with a chuckled.

Applejack's eyes went wide. "What do ya mean she kissed him!?"

"He was leavin' for Canterlot for a few days and Granny cornered him and kissed him. The look on his face was hilarious!" Mac said recalling the memory.

"Thank you Big Mac." She said giving her brother a hug then running back towards the house.

"Ah swear i'm missing something important... But i can't place my hoof on it. Maybe it will come ta me later." Mac thought as he went back to work.
Matt sat in the post office as he placed the letter's into a big envelope. "Okay, I have placed the dates and times and i have made sure i addressed it to Princess Luna. Now to play the waiting game." Matt thought as he sat in line.

"Next!" Shouted the stallion as he let whoever was next to walk up. "How can i help you?"

Matt placed the envelope onto the counter "I need this sent out" Matt pulled out a piece of paper "On this day at this time." He then dug into his bag and pull out a small bag and placed it on the counter "This should cover the cost of holding it."

The stallion use his magic to pick up the piece of paper and read the date and time then he looked at Matt, Then he opened the bag and saw the bits inside "Alright, We can do that, Your mail will be sent on." He said putting the envelope into a box and putting do not open till and the date "Have a nice day sir."

Matt walked away and outside as he looked around. "Now, What can a stallion do for fun around here?" He asked out loud to know pony as he walked down the streets of Canterlot.

There was a screeching noise as the ponies around didn't notice as a brown earth pony wearing a blue suit stepped out from the ally way "Here we are Twilight! Canterlot! Told you the TRADIS could get us to Canterlot faster then the train." He said with a smile.

"You were right, You did get us to Canterlot a lot faster then the train." The young unicorn said with a smile "Let's go get those books i ordered!" She said as she trotted along the road.
