Chapter 9. Foalsitting, Poker, Dream.

Chapter 9. Foalsitting, Poker, Dream.
Matt couldn't believe it, Here he was in the living room with a baby Applejack babysitting or as Honey told him, Foal sitting.

It was strange for Matt watching over his future girlfriend.

He held Applejack in his arms as he looked down at her, She was wide awake and was just staring at him.

Matt notice a strange and awful smell "Oh, That smell is coming from you."

She giggled "You think this is funny do you?" Matt placed her on the changing table "Won't this be a funny story to tell you when i finally get back to my right time line."

He pulled out a diaper and placed it on the side of Applejack and looked at her "I'll never understand how ponies change a diaper's with out magic." Matt was dreading changing her and having to use his mouth to remove the diaper "Why couldn't i have been a unicorn?"

Again this made Applejack giggle "Your enjoying my misery aren't you?" Matt said as he began to change her.

After he changed her he placed her in her play pen and made his way into the kitchen to go make something to eat.

Applejack played with her toy's as Matt was making a daisy sandwich.

He came back out and sat next to the play pen as he took a bite of his sandwich.

She giggled as she played with a teddy bear. Matt looked down at her and his hat fell off his head and landed on her little head.

She giggled as she looked up at Matt. Matt chuckled "You look so cute."

Matt took the hat off Aj's head and placed it back onto his head.

She started to cry "Don't cry." Matt placed his sandwich down and picked her up "I know you want to have this hat but i can't let ya keep it." He said a she held her in his arms.

She slowly calmed down as he held her in his arms "Alright, Can i put you back in your play pen so i can finish eating?"

He slowly lowered her back inside and she went back to playing with her teddy bear.

"Thank you." Matt picked back up his sandwich.

Matt finished his sandwich.

Matt took his plate into the kitchen and placed it in the sink and made his way back out into the living room. He made sure Aj had what she needed as he got his book and began to read.

"Just as the Dragon was about to strike the brave knight a bright light shinned from the sky just as a beautiful mar-." Matt heard a knock at the door "And it was getting to the good part!" He placed his book mark on his chapter as he placed his book down and made his way towards the door.

When he opened it he wished he hadn't "Hey Matt! I heard you got stuck foalsitting! So i figured i would stop by and help!" Cindy said as she walked passed Matt.

"Note to self, Remember to tell Honey not to tell CINDY! i'm foalsitting." Matt thought as he went to close the door when he saw Cheerilee standing in front of him "Before you get angry at me, I didn't tell her and i tried to keep her way." Cheerilee said trying not to get on his bad side.

"I thought you two would be at the school play?" Matt asked letting Cheerilee in.

"I didn't feel like watching a bunch of kid's act." Cindy said looking around the home "So, What were you doing before we showed up?"

"I was reading a book Cheerilee gave me." Matt said walking over to Aj who was sound asleep in her play pen.

"You were just reading? That's not fun! How about we do something fun?" Cindy said walking up to Matt.

"And what kind of fun are we talking about?" Matt asked taking a seat on the couch.

Cindy gave Matt a wicked smiled that made Matt wish Applejack would start crying so he could get out of whatever fun Cindy had in mind.

"I was thinking, Poker! Been awhile since I've played that game." She said as she pulled out some cards out of her bag.

"Don't you need five more pe-ponies to play?" Matt asked.

"Yes, But we don't need to play by the rules." Cindy said as she shuffled the cards.

"What's the harm in playing Poker. It's not like we're going to play strip poker... We're already naked." Matt thought as he took a seat.

"So, Have you played poker before Cheerilee?" Matt asked as Cindy dealt the cards out.

"Yeah, Cindy is training me for Las Pegasus." Cheerilee said as she held her cards "Have you played poker before?"

"Once, Lost to a mare with green eyes." Matt said as he remember the time Applejack made him play poker and he lost eighty bucks to her.

"She must have made some kind of impression on you since you remember her eyes." Cindy said with a sly smile.

"She did." Matt said as he looked at his cards.

"I bet 1 bit." Cindy said tossing a bit into the middle of the table.

"I see your bit and raise you two." Matt said as he put down two bit's.

"And i fold." Cheerilee said folding her cards.

"Already?" Cindy asked.

"Yes, I have a crappy hoof any ways." She said sitting back on the couch as she watched Matt and Cindy play.

An hour went by and Matt and Cindy were still locked in battle. Matt placed a bit into the pile "I raise you three bit's."

"How about we make a little wager" Cindy said with a smile.

"Alright." Matt said figured she wouldn't do anything stupid with her sister in the room.

Cindy smiled "Who ever wins, He or she will have to do what the other want's for one week." Matt looked at his cards.

"Alright. You have yourself a deal." He lowered his cards "Straight."

"Looks like i won." She lowered her cards.

Matt's eyes went wide as he saw that Cindy had a Royal Flush "I-I lost."

"Cheerilee, He's yours for a week." Cindy said as she took the bit's on the table and placed them in to her bag "Well, I've gotta go, I've got a date with this very hot stallion and i don't want to be late." Cindy made her way towards the door "You two have fun now." She closed the door.

"I'm going to kill her." Cheerilee said as a blush came across her face "I'm sorry about her."

"It's cool." Matt said as he looked at her "Well, When do i start?"

"W-What do you mean?" Cheerilee asked.

"Well, Your sister won the bet and my bit's so, I'm yours for a whole week." He said taking a seat next to her "Now before you say that i don't owe you a week of my time, Yes i do, If you don't your sister will take it and make me her slave."

"You have a point." Cheerilee said "You don't have to go through it, I'll just say you did stuff for me with out you really did anything for me."

"No, If you did that i wouldn't feel right." He said "I lost, Might as well take it like a stallion."

"Well, You can start tomorrow. I need help moving old boxes from the attic."

"Sound's like a plan. What time tomorrow?"

"By eight."

They sat there for a moment both feeling the awkwardness in the air "W-Well... I better get going." She said grabbing her bag "I'll see you tomorrow."

"See you tomorrow." Matt watched as Cheerilee left. He looked back at the play pen to see Applejack still sound asleep "Good, She's still asleep."

Matt grabbed his book and went back to reading.
Yellow opened the door to his home.

He froze when he saw Matt sound asleep on the couch with a book covering his face as a sleeping Aj was in his arm's sound asleep.

"Awe, He must have read her a bed time story and he must have fallen asleep." Yellow said as Honey smiled.

"I'm goin' ta bed." Big Mac said walking passed his parents as Granny Smith chuckled.

"I'll take her, And you can wake Matt up." Honey said as she took her foal and Yellow gave Matt a little shake.

Matt's eyes slowly opened and he saw words "I either turned into a book or i feel asleep while reading." Matt removed the book and saw Yellow looking down at him "Hey, You guys are back. How was the play?"

"It was good. Big Mac had fun."

"He did not, They made him be the tree." Granny said as she made her way up the stairs.

"I thought he was the lead role?"

"They changed it at the last minute. So, Was Applejack good while we were gone?" Yellow asked.

"She was just fine." Matt said sitting up.

"Well, I've gotta go get some sleep." Yellow said walking towards the stairs "Night Matt."

"Night Yellow." Matt said grabbing his book as he made his way up the stairs and to his room.
Smoke filled the air as fired burned through buildings as ponies ran screaming.

Matt stood in the middle of the town as he watched a giant creature covered in black roared as fire flew out if it's mouth.

Just as quick as the creature had came it was gone within minutes. Matt saw nothing but ashes as the land was charred.

"Hello." Matt jumped as he saw this pure white mare standing next to him.

"W-Who are you?" Matt asked backing up.

"I'm a ghost from the past." She said as the landscape changed to a beautiful field of flower's.

"A-A ghost from the past? Why are you here?"

"To give you a warning, The creature you just saw will be awaken again." She said as she walked up to Matt "An element is about to die, It is up to you to protect them and make sure no harm comes to them."

"Does this mean i had to come and protect Applejack?"

"No, Somepony else. When the time is right call upon your elements and use them to protect her from the evil minion known as DarkFire." She slowly started to fade "I must go, Be safe Matthew."

"WAIT! Who is it!? Please tell me!" Matt asked scared.

She plucked a pink blossom and looked at Matt "Blossom." Was all she said as she disappeared.
Matt eyes popped open as he looked out the window to see the sun slowly raising.

"That had to be a dream." Matt thought as he looked at the mirror to see a pink blossom sitting on the dresser "Maybe it wasn't a dream."
Just outside the farm in the woods there stood a dark figure.

"Soon, I will kill the mother of the Element of Light." His red eyes glowing in the dark as green eyes started to pop up around the dark figure "Don't worry my pets. You'll soon be fed."
Honey Blossom sat in her kitchen with a cup of coffee as she read through the morning paper as she enjoyed this beautiful morning.
To Be Continued.
