The Voices of "hey' - Cromegas_Flare



Some ponies hear voices, voices that do not belong to the natural world. This 'Gift' is the bane of many Ponies lives, and things are not much different for Green Grass.

"hey"

Walking along the path, leaving Sugar Cube Corner, that Is what I was doing, when it all started.

hey

Every turn I can hear them calling me out, sometimes even using my name.

listen

Sometimes I can hear the words they are saying the other times I can barely hear the audible recognition. Life has been like a stroll through a rose bush since the accident and now I can’t even think to myself without interruption. On that fateful night, my life changed forever.

can you see us?

NO! I won't do what you say!


Green Grass sat down at his table sipping his milk shake, or at least he was trying to devour his treat. He could only laugh at the site in front of him, two young ponies: An earth pony colt who had a striking brown coat and a cute little propeller beanie, the other a sweet little white unicorn with striking green eyes. Grass like green eyes, and was pleased to see the trate still living on in the genes of pony kind. The sight in front of him was entertaining to watch, for the young colt had attempted to start a competition on who could finish their shake first.

It soon became apparent that the unicorn would win because, as soon as the colt started-- he gave himself a massive brain freeze. Though the filly was annoyed, she still gracefully started to down her refreshment, even while the colt was on the ground screaming in agony as his brain cried for mercy to the ruthless cold cream.

Green Grass’s days were going rather mundane for the past few weeks but this ounce of joy before him made up for all of that ‘gray time.’ If there was one thing in this world that could bring joy, it was the little ones who ran out and about the town. There was just something about them that allowed fun to spring forward to anypony watching.

As much as he wanted to stay, his break time was nearly over and he needed to go back to work. Green then quickly finished his Vanilla shake, so he could make way to his business. That action alone made him feel for what the small colt was feeling. Placing two bits on the table, he got up and made his way to the shops exit, Just as the unicorn was about to beat the record on the colts Joyboy. However the colt did not mind because his suffering was cut short being rewarded by finding a lost bit. With a slight jingle, the doorbell rang as Grass left the shop with a smile on his face.

Some ponies wondered how the Everfree just stayed to it borders, keeping its rugged nature out of the inhabited circle. Green Grass never wondered this, simply because the task had run in his family for generations. He made his way over to near where Fluttershy's cottage was. Another mare he liked in the town, but he never really talked to her, only on those occasions when he found a injured or sick animal near the brush head. He liked that bout her.

"hey"

Barely audible, yes but he still heard it. True, he should of been used to their interruptions by this point because they have never been to intrusive. That however did not stop his blood from freezing on the spot, or at least that is what it felt like to him. He, however kept on walking to his destination pulling out his seeds from his saddle bag.

The seeds were the very thing protecting pony ville, for they had magic in them, put there by Celestia herself. The magic would stop any growth from entering Ponyville as well as any beast. The only problem was that the grass would die one month after being planted, so somepony had to go and replant them before time expired.

"Green Grass"

I was just in the proses of planting when I heard this, the earth broken beneath my feet.

"Green Grass"

My name was said twice, that has never happened to me, not once not ever!

"Listen!"

I tried in all my power to ignore such words, but nothing could actually become the wrath of what was said next.

"You will get her for us!"

I did my best to ignore, yes but the words kept beating into my head. There was nothing in my power I could do! Not one Pony could blame me for what I had to do.

With a shudder in my voice, I asked, "Who?"

I heard the answer, the terrible whisper which put more fear into my empty carcase than anything before.

"NO! I will never!" I shouted in my rage as I ran deep into the forest.



It had been two weeks since I had disappeared, the voices ringing in my head. Asking me to do the unthinkable.

hey

Every turn I can hear them calling me out, sometimes even using my name.

listen

Sometimes I can hear the words they are saying the other times I can barely hear the audible recognition. Life has been like a stroll through a rose bush since the accident and now I can’t even think to myself without interruption. On that fateful night, my life changed forever.

can you see us?

NO! I won't do what you say!

"Hey!"

That was the expected response, they always answered that way when I said no. Not once did they ever reply in another form, hell, I never heard them say anything more then six words. I shuddered as I remembered the task they wanted me to do, even as I rested against the old tree it shook with my shudder. Why me, why am I the one who has to deal with this? A question that had run through my head on many of occasions. It was the one question that would never be answered, simply because there was not one.

"you will get her for us"

My eyes twitched, "No! Shut up! Shut the..."

"You get her for us!"

This was not a whisper, no the shout was to loud, causing me to jump from where I sat. This had been going on for days, and never before had they shouted at me.

"You get her for us!"

"But.."

"You get her for us!"

"I will..."

"You get her for us!"

I don't...

"You get her for us!"

"Shut up"

"You get her for us!"

and again,

"You get her for us!"

"Fine! I'll do it" It was then when the voices stopped shouting at me.

"hey"

Just enough to let me know they are still there, so I know I have not escaped them. I finally noticed that I was curled into a ball on the ground. I was not surprised by this, but I needed to go and get her. I had to, there was not much time.

I got up and started with my long journey back to Ponyville.




I don't know why, but I must have been not to far from Ponyville, however that did not stop my hooves from getting sore. When I did arrive to my home town, being rewarded to finding out that the seeds had not yet been planted. Of course my mind was always wondering if my lack of work would send Ponyville into disaster. That did not however ease my guilt on what I had to do next. I had to search I had to look, and then I had to do. All of which I would rather not accomplish.

It was day, becoming dusk soon. My mind was racing, wondering if I had a choice.

"You get her for us!"

No, I did not have a choice.

I went along my way to start my search.

I never, want to do this again!

"Hey"

Author's Note:

This has been in my to do list for a long time, and I finally finished it. Yes the seen at the beginning is based of the clip in JanAnimations' Buttons Adventures.

This was a bit of a struggle because I no longer have this problem so I really had to think back to a darker time to make sure I wrote it down correctly, none the less though I hope you enjoy it.
