Truths Revealed and Reunions

The next late afternoon, on the train Spike and his new friends were on, they opened the door to their cart and looked outside. Glenn yawned a little. "So, guys," said Glenn. "Where are we?"

"I'm not sure," said Al.

The colts all looked and saw where they were. "Canterlot!" said the colts.

"Hey, Spike!" said Al. "Wake up!"

Spike woke up. "Huh?" said Spike. "What is it?"

"Look where we are!" Spike looked and his eyes widened. They were in Canterlot?! If Princess Celestia found out Spike was out here! She was gonna take him back to Twilight and take him away from the only love and attention he ever truly had.

"Come on, guys!" said Howard. "Let's check this place out!"

"Wait a minute, guys!" said Spike. "I can't go there!"

"Why?" said Al.

"I-I just have bad experiences there." said Spike.

"Oh, come now." said Stephen. "You can give this place another chance."

Spike thought for a second. "Well, as long as no one sees me." He said. "Do you guys have something so no one can recognize me?"

"I got the perfect thing, buddy!" said Glenn.

The colts were walking around with Spike who was wearing a dark cloak so know one would recognize him. "Are you guys sure this will work?" said Spike.

"Of course." said Glenn. "No one would ever know that you're-"

"A DRAGON!" Screamed a nearby pony. "Everypony run!"

Everypony started running away, as Spike, Al, Howard, Stephen and Tim all glared at Glenn. "He-he, oops." said Glenn.

Then, they all felt something loom over them. Spike and the colts' eyes widened. They all turned around and saw an enormous, ferocious, black dragon floating over Canterlot.

"Uh, guys?" said Glenn. "D-d-do you think that was the dragon they were afraid of?"

"Maybe." said the other colts and Spike.

They all screamed as the dragon tried to flame them. They all ran and hid in a nearby dumpster. But the colts noticed Spike wasn't in the dumpster but looking up at the dragon.

"Run, friend, run!" Howard called.

"Don't worry, guys!" said Spike. "I got this!"

The colts all nervously watched Spike going up to the dragon. "Hey!" Spike said to the dragon. The dragon then floated down to Spike. "May I calmly ask why you're attacking Canterlot?"

The dragon looked at Spike and began to snarl angrily. Then the dragon grabbed Spike by his neck.

The colts all gasped as the dragon started squeezing Spike's neck.

"He's going to kill Spike!" said Stephen.

Glenn then flew out of the dumpster and started punching the dragon's head. "You leave our friend alone!" Glenn yelled as started punching the dragon's eyes. The dragon, being distracted by Glenn dropped Spike. Glenn flew over to Spike letting Spike climb on his back and fly him away from the monster.

"We gotta do something about this dragon, guys!" said Glenn.

"We'll go get help, you guys find a way to stop the dragon!" said Howard.

The colts all ran to go find help as Glenn then flew in the clouds with Spike on his back. They were also being followed close behind by the huge dragon.

"Why is he trying to kill you?" said Glenn.

"I don't know, but I'm pretty sure right now, he wants me." said Spike.

"Maybe you owe him money?" said Glenn.

Spike and Glenn then yelped as they saw the dragon getting closer. Spike and Glenn then flew over and through many clouds until they noticed the dragon disappear.

"He's gone!" said Spike.

"Where'd he go?" said Glenn.

Spike then looked down and saw a shadow starting to emerge from the clouds.

"LOOK OUT!" said Spike as he and Glenn flew out of the way from the dragon's gaping jaws. They saw the dragon fly upward but then start to come down towards them.

"He's coming back!" said Spike.

"What are we gonna do?" said Glenn.

They then both eyed a boulder down below, and below the boulder was a river. Spike and Glenn both smirked at each other as they flew down towards it. The dragon saw them and flew in their direction. Spike and Glenn stopped at the boulder and saw the dragon coming.

They then flew out of the way causing the dragon to bump headfirst into the boulder and then tumble all the way down towards the river. The dragon fell in the river, followed by the boulder which fell on him, causing him to drown.

Spike and Glenn saw what happened. "We did it!" said Glenn.

"Spike?" said a female voice. Spike turned around and saw Princess Celestia, besides her were Al, Howard, Stephen and Tim. Spike gulped.

Spike along with the five colts were now in Celestia's room. "Are you alright, Spike?" asked Celestia.

"I'm fine." said Spike. "But why was that dragon trying to kill me. What did I do to it?"

Celestia looked down. "Spike," said Celestia. "There's something I need to tell you. Many years ago, the black dragons, who looked like the one who attacked you, were in war many years with dragons who looked just like you. And then, eventually the black dragons killed all the purple dragons, the only one who survived all the attacks...was you."

Spike was wide-eyed when he heard that. Spike then sat down in sadness. "So," said Spike. "I really am alone." Spike looked down as tears streamed from his eyes. The colts looked at Spike at sadness, as Tim sniffed a little.

"I'm very sorry, Spike." said Celestia, putting a wing around him. "Put you shouldn't worry, you have Twilight Sparkle."

"But Twilight always treats me like a slave." Spike said. "She never treats me like a friend. It's like she never wanted me as a friend to begin with."

"Need I remind you that Twilight was the one who wanted to keep you after I made her my student. The guards were unsure about it, but I let her keep you. And do remember when Twilight took care of your when you were an infant?"

Spike started to think until heard Tim playing his trumpet out on the balcony in the moonlight. "What's Tim doing?" asked Spike.

"He's playing the lullaby his mother used to sing to him," said Al. "Everytime he sees the moonlight, he always plays that song."

Spike listened to Tim's music and recognized it. "That sounds like the same lullaby Twilight used to sing to me." said Spike. He listened to the song more. "It IS that same...beautiful song!" Spike said, as tears flowed from his eyes.

A young filly Twilight was holding a sleeping baby Spike in her fore-legs, cradling him as she sung.

Twilight then kissed Spike's forehead.

Spike then looked down. "Twilight is like my family." said Spike. "The only family I ever had."

"And when she found out you ran away, she was so worried, she couldn't sleep, she couldn't eat, she stopped reading books. She loves you, Spike. Like a mother loves her son."

Spike smiled, realizing it was true. But then he looked at his new friends. "But what about my new friends?" said Spike. "What will happen to them?"

"Well, I guess I have room in my castle for one more...or two...or three...four...and even five." said Celestia, smiling at the colts.

The colts all smiled wildly at that as they jumped up in the air with joy. "We've got a home guys!" said Al. "We get to stay in the castle! We-" The colts then looked at Spike, sadly. Spike smiled at the colts. "Guys," said Spike. "I-i'm gonna miss ya."

"Hey, don't worry, Spike." said Al, trying not to shed tears.. "Your Twilight friend is close with Celestia, we'll see each other more. But no matter what anypony says, you'll always be part of our group." The colts and Spike all shared a tearful hug as Celestia smiled. But nopony noticed that through the window, a hooded figure was watching them.

The next morning, Twilight was looking at her pictures of Spike. She looked even more miserable then before. "What am I gonna do with myself?" said Twilight. She looked at one of Spike's pictures.

"I blew it," Twilight blubbered. "I really blew it! I took my own best friend for granted! I'd give anything to have Spike back! I'd give anything to get another hug from him. A nice warm hug, that makes me feel absolutely warm inside whenever he's around!"

She then felt something hug her. She recognized how that hug felt, her eyes widened as she looked down and saw a certain dragon cuddled next to her.

"SPIKE!" Twilight said, happily. "OH, SPIKE!" Twilight gave Spike the biggest hug she could ever give her little dragon. "Thank Celestia you're safe!"

"You're welcome." said a female voice. Twilight looked over and saw Celestia peeking through the window. Twilight smiled at Celestia, and then looked back at Spike.

"Twilight," said Spike. "I'm really sorry I ran awa-"

Spike didn't finish as Twilight put her hoof to his mouth.

"No, Spike." said Twilight. "I'm the one who's sorry. I'm more sorry then I've ever been. You're more then my number one assistant, you're my best friend, you're my family. You've always been there for me and I've never appreciated it. But I promise things will change between us. I love you very much, Spike Can you...ever forgive me?"

Spike smiled as tears welled up in his eyes. "Of course, Twilight." said Spike as he and Twilight shared another embrace. "Thank you very much!"

"You're welcome, Spike." said Twilight. "I'm just so glad you're back now."

"Did we just hear Spike's back?!" said the voice of Pinkie Pie. Pinkie Pie poked her head through the door and grinned wildly.

"SPIKEY!" said Pinkie Pie. "You're back!" All of Twilight's friends all rushed over and pulled Spike into a big hug along with Twilight. Even the Cutie Mark Crusaders along with their newest member Babs Seed hugged Spike, happy to see him.

Everypony was more then happy to have their little dragon back.
