Wakfu:A Pony’s Tale

Chapter 4

Yugo watched as the mares excused themselves, all three shuffling out of the hospital room in a hasty fashion, closing the door behind them, after some time he saw Doctor Stable leave as well, a concerned look on his face.

The colt, after releasing a heavy sigh, let his head fall back onto the semi-soft pillow. Az, his feathery friend, landed gently upon his furry chest, snuggling into the warmth of his soft fur. He raised both of his hooves to gently cup around Az’s back, allowing the odd little bird to get a bit more comfortable as it settled into him.

“You know Az…” He said, looking up towards the ceiling. “I wonder if they realize how easy it is to tell they left to talk about me?” Az, for his part, chirped and fluffed up his feathers in response, an act that caused Yugo to chuckle.

That action had proved to be a mistake on his part, a stab of pain hitting him hard in his chest causing the foal to cringe up in pain, toppling Az off his chest and in between his covered legs. The bird chirped angrily at being forced off its perch but soon grew a look of concern as he watched his master suffer. Az flew up towards Yugo’s cheek, and gave him a gentle nuzzle with its beak, doing its best to comfort the colt.

Yugo smiled weakly as at his partner’s affection, the pain slowly subsiding all the while. “Don’t worry Az. I’ll be okay in a bit. Guess I haven’t recovered as well as I thought I have.” His eyes closed as he looked down to the covers. “What happened to me? Why can’t I remember anything?” He watched as the bird shrugged its wings, conveying the universal sign of ‘Beats me’.

Yugo sighed, once again, before looking over to his side out the window. He could see the grounds outside and many other ponies going about their day. He could even see a few selling food and other items out in street side stands. He let his hoof gently press into the glass, staring at the many ponies that littered the roads before looking down at the bandages wrapped around his own hooves. “Its weird. I remember you alright, and I remember fighting...something. I don’t know who I am though?” He sighed before closing his eyes. “Just, who am I?”

“Aw! Turn that frown upside down! Cause I’m going to throw you a party!!”

The sound of the voice caused Yugo to quickly sit up (Albeit with a bit of pain) some deep instinct kicking up inside him to raise his hooves to his defence, ready to do what was needed to protect their owner.

“Who’s there!?” He asked, doing his best to pull off a threatening tone for one that seemed barely old enough to look after himself. “If you're a ghost, I’m not afraid of you!”

“Oh thank goodness!” The voice said, relief evident in its tone. “Thought for sure you would have been mad if I told you I accidentally ordered a ghost pinata for you party.”

“A...Pinata? Wait, what?” A headache was beginning to throb in his brain, making the little colt cringe ever so slightly. “I...Ugh...Headache…”

“GASP! Well thats no good. If your head hurts then you can’t enjoy the fundivious party I’m planing, cause everypony gets one free ‘Welcome to Ponyville’ party from the party marre of Ponyville. Thats me!!”

“Mare? So...You're a pony?” He asked opening his eyes again.

“Of course! GASP! Oh my gosh! You never told me your name did you?!”

Yugo near jumped out of his fur at the overly pink mare sudden appearance beside him, yelping as only a colt could yelp when scared out of his mind. The pink mare with the deep pink only giggled in response, hopping onto the bed with him. “So whats your name? Huh? Huh?! HUH?! Tellmetellmetellme!”

“Its Y-Yugo…” The colt responded as best he could, placing a hoof over his rapidly beating heart.

“Yugo, huh?” The pink mare mused. “Hehehe! Thats a funny name! Its nice to meet you Yugo! My names Pinkie pie, and were gonna be super special awesome friends!!”

The door had been flown open just before Pinkie announced herself, the three previous mares from before rushing into to aid the young colt who had just yelled not too long ago, only to stare in bewilderment at the scene before them.

Twilight was the first to recover, her left eye twitching sporadically as her thought process began to quickly reboot itself. Of course she only had one word for the pink pony, one that Pinkie had heard all her life.

“PIIIINKIIIIEEEE!”

The party mare was quickly wrapped within a purple aura, the tell, tell sign of Twilight using her magic on her. She was tossed quite easily off the colt, landing on a bed on the other side of the room. Pinkie took it all in stirred though, giggling madly as she bounced upon the bed happily. “WHOOO! That was fun! Do it again Twilight!”

“Yugo!” Rarity cried as she ran to the colts bed. She went from fretting over the boy to children Pinkie every second. “Are you ok?! Pinke what were you doing?! She didn’t hurt you did she? You have to be more considerate of others Pinkie! Just tell me is anything hurts ok?”

“Aww Rarity, I only wanted to meet our new friend.” Pinke said jumping off the bed with happy flip. “My Pinkie since told me that a new friend was here in this room so I had to meet him.”

“Be that as it may Pinkie,” Rarity child. “You still must be considerate of Yugo’s condition. He still his hurt after all darling.”

“Oh…” Pinkie said looking away, her mane (To Yugo’s surprise) actually deflating a bit and her fur losing a bit of its luster. “I’m sorry guys. I didn’t mean to hurt anypony…” Tear began to well up within the mares eyes, her iris’s actually shimmering with heavy regret.

“Ah...No its ok.” Yugo said, rubbing the back of his head with a hoof. “Actually, I was feeling a little down a while ago,” He said before smiling brightly at her. “I feel a whole lot better now. So thanks Pinkie.”

Pinkie instantly brighten as she rushed to the colts side hugging him happily. “Thanks Yugo! I can already tell you're going to be the best friend ever!” She let go of him and began to bouch her way out of the room. “I’ve gotta prepare for the party everypony. Its getting late so the party will definitely be tomorrow at noon. I’ll see ya later.” She mused.

Rarity sighed before looking to the colt, ready to apologize for Pinkie Pie but was cut short as a bright smile was upon the colts face. She couldn’t help but smile herself. “Well...I guess we can excuse her this once…” She mused to herself.

Twilight sighed as she made her way inside her library, placing her saddlebags full of equipment down as she did so. She slowly made her way to her desk, a pile of notes being held within her confines of her magic. I didn’t get a lot of information from him...but at least he was more opened now. I do wonder though, where did he come from?

“Twilight?”

“WAAAA!!”

Twilight jumped at the voice, her held notes flying everywhere in a burst of purple magic. She growled as her eye twitched, turning around to give the pony who snuck up on her a piece of her mind, only to have her words catch in her throat. She looked upon two pure white legs just a few feet away from her, trailing up them to find herself looking into the magenta eyes of the tall pony before her, her every flowing rainbow like hair bellowing gently around her frame. a pair of unblemished wings folded in and out from her body, creating a slight gust to blow the papers into the air. The pony’s elongated horn began to glow with a gentle yellow light, catching each and every last one of them with ease. She smiled as she tilted her head towards the lavender unicorn, closing Twilight’s agape.

“It is good to see you to, my most faithful student.”

Twilight quickly bowed herself low, her mind once again at full working order. “Princess Celestia! I’m so sorry! I didn’t know you were here?!”

Celestia smiled as she shook her head. “It is quite alright Twilight. I came at the last minunt. Please forgive me for the interruption.”

“No! its quite alright Princess. Um...Would you like some tea? I can put some on for you.”

“NO!” Celestia’s yelp, her eyes widened for only a second before she shook her head side to side and lowered her tone. “I mean No. That is quite alright Twilight. This is just a quick visit after all. I came to see about the little colt who came in from the magical storm.”

Twilight looked away, biting her lower lip. “W-Well...the thing is Princess, it seems that he’s suffering from retrograde amnesia. He can’t remember anything past him waking up except for his name and the name of his little bird.”

Celestia closed her eyes before looking away. “I see…”

“I did however,” Twilight began, gaining her Teacher’s attention again. “Find, first hoof mind you, that the magic used to bring him here can be felt inside him, and there is a lot of it.”

“Twilight,”Celestia said as she looked away, though there was a certain tone that Twilight couldn’t quite figure out. “All ponies have magic inside of them. You know this.”

“But his was different.” Twilight responded. “Not just different but...well...it felt strange. I can’t explain it.”

“I see…” Celestia turned away from Twilight before speaking again. “Twilight, I want you to keep an eye on the colt.”

“Yes! Of course Princess!” Twilight answered. “Do you think that he is dangerous?”

“Time will tell, my most faithful student.”

Celestia disappeared in a flash of light, leaving Twilight both stunned and worried, her mind racing. “Celestia…”

Celestia returned back to her castle’s study sighing deeply. “That time last night...That magic...It felt just like…” A sudden noise sounded behind her, causing her to quickly look behind her, her breath caught in her throat when she beheld the last stallion she wanted to see right now.

A cream furred pony in color, almost heavenly so, stood at the door frame. Cloaked in a soft flowing white robe and a beard braided in an intricate web. His brown eyes, while welcoming held an air of calculation about them. He seemed surprised that Celestia was there, his eyes widening before giving her a gentle smile.

“I see I get the royal welcome this time. It is good to see you Tia.”

“And you to Qilby.” She seemed to purr. “I take it by that smile of yours, your expadition to the Fallen Lands was a success.”

“Oh...Hehehe. The opposite actually.” He laughed, setting the cane he was holding down. “Seems that what I thought was there was never there to begin with.”

“I see. I am sorry to hear that.”

“On the contrary my dear. We found a lot of ancient artifacts so intact that Daring Do herself would be jealous me.” He joked.

“Don’t let her hear you say that Qilby. She has quite the temper when she wants to.” Celestia shifted before looking away from him. “Is there, something you needed old friend?”

“Oh...No just thought I might get some reading in before resting.” He said making his way to the bookcase.

“Well, then I best get to my quarters then. Maybe we can get a bite to eat tomorrow. It has been months since we had some time together.” She said, making her way to the door.

“I would love to Tia…”

She nodded before making it to the edge of the door.

“Oh...by the way.”

She paused, her breath catching in her throat.

“I felt a rather powerful magical burst on the train last night, southeast of here. Do you happen to know what the cause was?”

Celestia was silent for a moment before giggling lightly. “That was just my student Twilight in Ponyville. You remember her do you not? She had quite the magical mishap this time around.”

“I see…” Qilby said before chuckling. “She is quite the troublemaker isn’t she. Reminds me of you actually. Still, she is the best at what she does, is she not? I take it nothing too drastic happened.”

“Everything was fine by the end of the day.” Celestia reassured him.

“Good...Tomorrow then? At noon?”

“Tomorrow at noon…”

The door closed behind her, leaving Qilby within the study alone. He replaced the book upon the shelf before smiling. “Reminds me of you indeed…” He mused softly.
