The second mind

"Hmmm. So Celestia took her to the castle...all the more to go and spy. Let's give her a day of rest...what am I saying? Let's give her some minor disturbances. Let's see how much more she can take. When she breaks, heheh, but, I'm not in the mood today. How about more dancing?"


The princesses had placed Silver in a rather cramped room. Just enough for three ponies the size of Big Mac to stretch around in. Nothing significant. Silver had a sleeping soup forced down her throat. She was sleeping like a rock held on a planet with the gravitational pull of Jupiter. Cyclon was watching over her, lying down on the floor next to her small bed. He had a very worried look on his face. He didn't feel right next to her.

*moan* And to think, it was probably that thing that turned me violent. Hmm, but why is she like this now? When I attacked her, she apparently fought back and didn't care. Strange.

Strange voices were coming from the other side of the large metallic door. It had runes carved on it. In fact, the entire room had runes and symbols all over it. Cyclon got up and opened the door. He was surprised to see two mares with an opposite color scheme of each other, accompanied by the element of generosity.

"Who are you and what do you want?" asked Cyclon. Rarity stepped forward.

"The princess asked that I find somepony that would be great at helping Silver. I don't know what state she's in right now, but I do now she needs help, and the Spa sisters here are perfect for it."

"And we are here to give her our "special" treatment." said Lotus.

"She gave such promising results, it'd be such a shame to let her stay stressed." follow Aloe.

Cyclon spun his eyes and looked at the ground as he scratched his head.

"Uhhh...she's a bit more than stressed right now. Go ahead inside. A certain something should happen if you are lying about who you really are." Cyclon gave them a very compelling smile.

The three mares hesitated to walk inside the room, but they forced themselves inside. Nothing happened. They sighed in relief.

"There you go. I'm her personal bodyguard right now, so you'll have to deal with me."

The ponies walked inside, and Rarity sat next to Cyclon's spot. The two spa sisters tossed the blanket off of Silver. The second the blanket touched the floor, Silver's eyes opened up quickly, and she stared down the sisters despite still lying down on the bed. She just followed them with her eyes in a very creepy manner. It was impossible to tell what she was going to do in her state. Rarity had gasped and tried to avert her eyes at the horrid appearance of Silver now.

Her once perfect silky coat was now all roughed up and tangled. Her and tail looked tarnished and flung itself in all possible directions. Under her eyes were now what looked like black silk. Her coat may be tarnished, but it still shone in some areas. Nopony would tell her what was going on, but it wasn't good.

"Oh my. Aloe, this is quite the test."

"Yes. I believe we'll have to go directly to her soul this time."

The two spa ponies cracked their front hooves and placed them on Silver's spine and her head. A bright blue light started to shine from Silver's mark, launching the spa ponies against the wall and causing the tow who were sitting to jump five feet into the air.

"What happened?" moaned Lotus.

Silver just kept staring at them.

"I don't know. Her cutie mark just started to flash blue, and you were ejected into the air." said Rarity.

"Well, we won't let ourselves get beat that easily!"

The sisters jumped back onto Silver and pushed hard, expecting another flash, but nothing happened. They assumed it was the massive amounts of negative energy that expelled themselves directly from Silver at a random point, and started their massage. It was extremely hard for them. Half an hour had passed and no progress was made. The two sisters stopped and layed down to rest a bit.

"Wow. We have never seen anything like it." said Aloe.

"It's like deep scars that were etched into her soul and mind have suddenly reopened and are bleeding out."

"That would explain why she's just staring at us." said Rarity.

Indeed. Although this was noticed before, Silver had been breathing calmly and peacefully as if sleeping, but her eyes were wide open and had been watching the movements of everypony. They seemed to have a very faint glow in them. The two sisters realized that what Rarity had said was the truth. They went closer to inspect her eyes, and noticed something very strange.

"Lotus, this seems to be her sub-consciousness that is looking at us."

"Intriguing. The events she has been going through must have separated her from her sub-consciousness."

"What does that mean?" asked Cyclon.

"It means that she might have developed a second personality to help her defend against whatever is attacking her mentally. It doesn't seem to be able to interact with us though." answered Aloe.

"I'm not sure if that is a good thing or a bad." wondered Rarity.

"Well, if it can't interact with the outside world, than it can be considered as a type of "mental guardian". This sort of thing has happened before, but only on very rare occasions when a pony was extremely stressed. Usually, these ponies had become crazy and started to do...strange things to others. Not deadly, but just strange."

"Does that mean she might become like that?" asked Cyclon.

Cyclon was ready to tie Silver up at any moment.

"No. It would have already attacked us by now. Perhaps we should wake her up and take her outside?"

Cyclon pondered this. Silver was taken to the castle to be protected, and this room was made to house her, but, she was also taken here for rest and to "resanitize" her and allow her to destress. If she stayed cooped up here, she would certainly become crazy. But, if she was taken outside under the careful surveillance of him and the other guards, then he would be yelled at by Celestia and Luna. Hmmm...it was a lose/lose situation, but, Silver's well being seemed more important. It would keep those strange creatures far away and would help her deal with whatever "mental" attacks they were dealing to her.

"Well?" asked Rarity.

She was eager to get Silver back to herself. This "second mind" was creeping her out. It kept it's gaze on her now, and seemed to be trying to tell her something.

"Okay, but I'll have to tell this to one of the big chiefs."

"And who would that be?" asked Rarity.

"Bullseye. One of the most vicious of trainers, but very efficient nonetheless. Now please excuse me as I ask one of the soldiers there to get him."

"You mean, you can just CALL a general?" said Rarity.
She was shocked at this statement.

"No, but Bullseye is different in that he likes to walk around and see who is slacking."

"Oh."

"Yeah...I know."

Cyclon exited the room and closed the door. Rarity took this time to try and stare down the thing, but Silver's eyes had closed.

"Uhhh, girls, what happens when the second personality closes it's eyes?"

The spa sisters were stretching and limbering up when Rarity asked the question. Aloe was the one to answer:

"It just means that she's waking up."

"WHAT?!"

A few mumblings were heard, and Silver opened her eyes and stretched thoroughly.

"*SUPER LOUD YAWN* That was one of the best naps I've ever had. Wait...where am I?"

"Silver!" yelled Rarity.

She jumped on top of me and started to squeeze me tightly between her legs. I tried to move her away, but I remembered what I had told her awhile back. Not that she was here, I could apologize.

"Rarity. I have to tell you something." she finally let go.

"What is it dear?"

"You remember what I told you at the store on Nightmare Night?"

"Yes, unfortunately."

"Well...I wanted to apologize about that. I was...angry. Two months of that was too much for me."

"You don't have to apologize. I understand what happened. It was my fault for not listening to you."

"I'm glad we could come to an understanding."

"As am I...but..."

"But what?"

"I think that Cyclon likes you."

I gave a chuckle.

"What? You mean the guard that beat me up? Isn't he the one who said he felt possessed?"

"Yes."

"*sigh* Where am I anyways?"

"You're in the castle."

"Canterlot castle?"

"Yes."

"Why am I here?"

"It's...um...for your protection."

"Oh. Well, I haven't been feeling like myself lately, so I guess this makes sense."

Rarity seemed to look at me strangely. Like she was thinking deeply about something.

"Do you remember anything that happened at Twilight's house?"

"I...oh...I see."

"Yes. Well, I brought the spa sisters here to help with your health."

They looked at me and waved.

"Okay...I guess it's for the best, as long as I don't have to be in a crowd."

"Of course not. This will just be us four." said Lotus.

"And your bodyguard." interjected Aloe.

"What? I have a bodyguard? Who is it?"

Rarity kind of gulped and looked around quickly.

"It's...uh...Cyclon."

"Greeeaaat! I suppose somepony worse than him is going to be appearing right about now to get me out then?"

*BAM* An olive green stallion had kicked the door open, much to the protests and complaints of Cyclon. He wore a golden armor just like the rest of the guards, but didn't wear a helmet. He was a unicorn, and he seemed very well fit for soldier duty. His mane was of a very dark jungle green, and only a shaved top could be seen of it. He apparently liked to have that 'US marines' haircut. If I saw correctly, his cutie mark was a bullseye with some type of smile on it.

"So, what's this 'bout gettin' 'er out?"

Great. Another idiotic brute.


Some of you might recognize a certain character I put in here that is from one of my other stories. It is the same physically, but it's origins are much, much different.
