Chapter 5: Forgiveness

With Celestia

Celestia was in the Canterlot library with her sister Luna; looking through every book in the library to try to find an answer to her nightmares. Every book she looked through had no answer she needed. She looked over to her sister, which also was having a hard time finding the right book they need.

“I’m guessing you haven’t found what were looking for right Luna?” she asked. Luna turned to her sister and shook her head.

“Nothing. I’ve looked through every book in the library and can’t find the answer to your nightmare problem.” Celestia sadly sighed and looked to the ground with disappointment. Her mind spun around as the nightmare resurfaced in her mind. Everything burning, her home destroyed, ponies she knew and loved killed. Celestia thought she was going crazy with this, but what does the nightmare mean? Is it a vision of the future? Her mind playing tricks on her? She couldn’t handle this any longer. Anger, sadness and fear took hold. She stomped her hoof to the floor which caused Luna to jump a little. Celestia gritted her teeth as tears ran down her eyes.

“I can’t take this anymore sister! This is too much for me to handle! I don’t know why this is happening! I just want this all to stop! I-I-I-“ Luna knows Celestia is taking this in hard. Celestia was afraid of everything that just happened for the past few days. Luna too, was afraid of this. Thinking quickly, she walked over to Celestia and embraced her with the most caring hug she can offer to her. She felt Celestia body shaking while she tried to comfort her best she can.

“Shhh. It’s alright Tia. I’m here. I promise, I will do everything in my power to help you. I will not rest until this problem is solved.” Celestias body slowly stopped shaking and her tears started to weakened. She looked down to her younger sister and smiled; happy she was there for her whenever she’s afraid or alone. She lifted one of her hooves and returned her own embrace to her sister. “Thank you LuLu.” She whispered. The two Alicorns broke up their embrace and smiled at one another.

“I needed that, and I’m glad to have you as my sister.” Luna smiled and nuzzled her sister.

“How about we take a break? We’ve been in the library all morning.” Celestia nodded in agreement as the two left the library. “I hope Twilight and her friends found something about this.” Celestia said.

“I hope as well. As soon as they come to Canterlot, I’m sure our research will-“Her sentence was cut off when a tied up scroll appeared in front of the two Alicorns. Celestia knew it was from Twilight. She took the scroll by using her magic, surrounding it with a yellow, sparkling aura and opened the scroll and started reading it. Luna looked at her sister with confusion as she saw her eyes widened every second as she continued reading the scroll. After she finished reading the letter, Celestia lowered the scroll and started to space out. The silence was then broken by Luna.

“What is Tia?” She asked. Celestia looked at her sister.

“I believe we’ve found the answers we need.” She said.

“What do you mean by that?” Luna asked. Celestia held the letter up Luna and Luna read the scroll. After a minute or so, she had the same look as her sister.

“I…I don’t know what to say.” Luna said with shock.

“Neither does I Luna. But if Twilight says that this Spyro character has the answers we need, then it’s crucial that we find him and get him and this Cynder to give us the answers we need.”

“I’m afraid that won’t happen my dear.” Said a dark voice. Luna and Celestia jolted their heads up and looked around the hallways of the catsle to find the trace of the voice. They saw nothing.

“Where are you!? Come out where we can see you!” shouted Luna.

“As you wish my dear.” Said the voice. Shadows around Luna and Celestia began to gather into one area of the hallways and created one huge shadow blob. After the shadows disappeared, a large, purple dragon stood in front of them with a grin. Overwhelming fear took hold of Celestia as she looked upon the dragon. He had the same features and looks that Celestia saw in her nightmares. Luna looked at her sister knowing that they might have found the answer to her nightmares. Luna then turned her attention back at the purple dragon, which still had the evil grin on his face.

“Identify yourself right now! Who are you!?” She asked glaring down at the large dragon. The dragon then gave out an evil chuckle.

“Oh how rude of me to not telling you two my name. Allow me to introduce myself. I am the Dark lord of my homeland known as Avalar. My name is Malefor.

With Spyro

Spyro was back in the Everfree Forest laying quietly in the nest he and Cynder made when the two came to Equestria. Fresh tears went down his purple scaly cheeks as his mind continued to replay the process of what happened back at the castle. He nearly killed an innocent creature out of anger and hatred. He let his dark form take hold and tried to kill the young mare. If it wasn’t for Cynder, he would’ve ended her life for good. He felt very guilty for his actions. Spyro wished he can go back in time and fix his mistake, but Ignitus once told him he cannot change the past, but can change the future. Spyro sadly sighed as he closed his eyes.

/How can I ever apologize to the mares for what I did? Will they forgive me? What if they attack me if they find me, or if I find them/?

Spyro couldn’t take it anymore. He curled up tighter and more tears ran down his face. He wanted to throw away all his sorrow and pain. Then, an image of Cynder popped into his head. Could she be mad at him for his actions? What if she doesn’t want to be with him anymore? Spyro finally started to sob quietly as he clenched his thoughts hard.

“Cynder. I’m so sorry.” He whispered.

“Why are you being sorry?” said a familiar voice. He put up his head and saw Cynder looking at him with tears in her eyes. That was then Spyro lost control over his sadness; he got up and ran toward her and gave her the most loving, passionate hug he could give her. Cynder returned the embrace as more tears ran down her cheek.

“I’m so sorry for what I’ve done.” He whimpered.

“Shh…It’s alright. Just let it out…Shh.” Cynder and Spyro held their embrace for a good 5 minutes until Spyro finally calmed down as the two broke their embrace.

“Why did you storm off? I was worried that something bad would happen to you.” Cynder said. Spyro sadly looked at the ground with new fresh tears running down his eyes.

“I…I was afraid what you were going to be mad at me for my actions. I was afraid that you weren’t going to love me anymore; that you would leave me forever.” Cynders heart broke from those words.

“Ooooh Spyro.” She lifted his head with her hand and looked into his violet eyes with tears still running.

Cynder then spoke in her most calming, loving voice. “I would never leave you for what you’ve done. I love you no matter what; not even a small error like that will ever change. I wouldn’t even know what I would do without you. You’re everything to me Spyro. You’re my whole world. I will never leave you because I love you from the bottom of my heart.”

More tears ran down his face again, but these were tears of joy. He was truly happy to have such a loving companion and mate such as Cynder. He then wrapped his claws and wings around Cynder and gave her a loving hug. Cynder returned the hug with happiness. Finally, the two broke up and looked into their eyes.

“I love you Spyro.” Cynder whispered.

“I love you to Cynder.” Spyro replied.

Cynder smiled and leaned close to him and her lips connected to his into a loving kiss. As Spyro gladly returned the kiss, all his pain, sorrow and sadness were then washed away. Spyro then pulled Cynder closer and deepened the kiss, which Cynder did as well. All Spyro wanted here and now was to be with Cynder and to be loved. After a while, the two dragons broke the kiss and looked into their eyes which were filled with tears of joy. They then heard a small whimper behind the bushes. They knew exactly who was behind the bushes.

“We know your back there. Come on out.” Spyro called out.

The bush rustled as Twilight and her friends (except Rainbow Dash) came out with tears running down their eyes.

Earlier with Twilight and her friends

Twilight, Nyx, Spike and the rest of her friend continued their search for Cynder and Spyro in the Everfree forest. Twilight was still mad at Rainbow Dash for her actions against the two dragons. But, at the same time, she felt a little guilty for yelling at her. She understood that she was just trying to protect her friend and her home, but she still had no right for saying those awful things about them and how she hurt them.

“Mommy, are you okay?” Nyx asked.

Twilight looked at her daughter and gave her a soft smile.

“Yes, I’m fine Nyx.” Twilight said in a calm voice. Nyx knew Twilight was still angry from the events at the castle this morning.

“You’re still mad at Auntie Rainbow Dash right?” Nyx asked. Twilight gave out a deep sigh and spoke.

“Yeah, I’m still mad at her for her actions and for what she did to Spyro and Cynder.”

“Don’t worry Twilight, once we find them, we’ll try to convince them that we mean no harm to them. Hopefully they’ll forgive us, especially Rainbow.” Nyx said. Twilight gave Nyx another smile. She also hopes the two will forgive them for their actions against them. The ponies continued their search for a while. Twilight suddenly heard voices in the distance.

“I’m so sorry for what I’ve done.” Said the first voice.

“Shh…It’s alright. Just let it out…Shh.” Said another voice. Twilight knew whose voices they were.

“Everypony, this way.” Twilight called out to her friends. The ponies and dragon followed Twilight. They then hid behind a bush and peeked through. They saw Spyro and Cynder hugging each other and saw tears running down Spyros face. They couldn’t help but shed a few tears for what they were seeing.

“Oh the poor dear. He must feel very bad for what he did.” Rarity whispered. The ponies nodded in agreement. After a while, Spyro and Cynder broke their hug and looked into their eyes. The seven ducked down to prevent being spotted, but were still able to look through the bush.

“Why did you storm off? I was worried that something bad would happen to you.” Cynder said. Spyro sadly looked at the ground with new fresh tears running down his eyes. Twilight knew exactly why Spyro left.

“I…I was afraid what you were going to be mad at me for my actions. I was afraid that you weren’t going to love me anymore; that you would leave me forever.” Spyro said. The ponies hearts broke from what he said.

“Man. He’s taking this seriously. Ah hope Cynder doesn’t hate him fer what he did.” Applejack protested. The ponies continued to look at Cynder and Spyro waiting for an answer from Cynder.

“Ooooh Spyro.” She lifted his head with her hand and looked into his eyes with tears still running.

Cynder then spoke in her most calming, loving voice. “I would never leave you for what you’ve done. I love you no matter what; not even a small error like that will ever change. I wouldn’t even know what I would do without you. You’re everything to me Spyro. You’re my whole world. I will never leave you because I love you from the bottom of my heart.”

The ponies hearts melted and smiled from Cynders words. Soon Spyro hugged Cynder again, which she also hugged him in return. After they broke up the hug, Cynder then whispered to Spyro.

“I love you Spyro.” Cynder whispered.

“I love you to Cynder.” Spyro replied.

The ponies hearts melted again as they saw Cynder leaning in toward Spyro and giving him a loving kiss. Spyro then pulled her closer, wrapping his arms and wings around her, which she did as well. As the two continued their kiss, the ponies watched them with tears running down their eyes; seeing the love and care the two dragons share. Twilight smiled and closed her eyes and whimpered softly.

“Those two have such a strong, loving bond.” She whimpered. The others heard what she said and happily nodded with agreement. But, it was short lived when they heard Spyros voice.

“We know your back there. Come on out.” Spyro called out.

Twilight gave a soft sigh as she and her friends emerged from the bush with tears still in their eyes. Cynder glared at the ponies with disgust.

“What are you doing here? I thought I made it clear for you and your friends to stay away from me and Spyro.” Cynder said coldly.

Before she could say anything else, Spyro gently put his claws on her shoulder to calm her down. Cynder turned and looked into his eyes.

“It’s okay Cynder. They have the right to be here. And I also owe them some answers.” Spyro said gently.

Much to her discomfort, Cynder knows she and Spyro owe then answers for what has happened. She sighed and nodded. Spyro smiled and took his claw off her shoulder; he then walked up to Twilight and her friends. Twilight still had a few tears running down her face. She then finally spoke.

“Spyro, I-“ She was cut off with Spyro putting his claws up in front of her.

“Before you anything, I want to apologize for what you all saw from before. After I realize what I’ve done, I felt very guilty and ashamed for my actions. Because of me, your friend got hurt, and almost got killed.” Tears soon ran down his face, but still continued speaking. “ I’m so SO sorry for what I did. I hope you and your friends can forgive me for my actions.”

Spyro finally lowered his head with more tears running down his face, waiting for a response from Twilight or her friends. He suddenly felt something soft, furry and warm against his scales. He opened his eyes and saw Twilight giving him a caring hug. He was confused by what was happening. How could she forgive him so easily? He thought she would be furious with him. After a few more seconds, Twilight broke the hug and looked into Spyros eyes.

“Even though I’m disappointed for your actions back at the castle and for attacking my friend, but I understand you were only trying to protect yourself and Cynder. And, I also want to apologize for what Rainbow did. I knew she was uneasy with dragons, but I didn’t know she would become that violent between you and Cynder. And for that, I’m sorry.” Twilight said with a sad frown.

“Were sorry as well.” Rarity said as she and the other ponies walked up to them.

“We all felt bad that we were being so harsh to the two of you when we all saw the two of you, and ah hope you can forgive us.” Applejack stated.

Spyro gave out a relaxing sigh and smiled to the ponies.

“Of course I forgive you all.” Spyro said.

“I forgive you all as well.” Cynder also added. The ponies looked at the two with surprise.

“How…how can you two forgive us so easily? If…you don’t mind me asking.” Fluttershy asked softly.

Spyro gave a soft smile and spoke. “A wise old friend once taught me to forgive those you have hurt, or if they hurt you. Forgiveness always fixes a broken heart and helps others smile again.”

The ponies and young dragon smile and embraced the two dragons with a caring hug, which the dragons returned. After the broke the hug, a small frown grew on Spyros face.

“I hope your friend Rainbow forgives me as well.” Spyro said sadly.

“I already have.” Said a familiar voice. The dragons and ponies looked in the direction of the voice and saw Rainbow Dash a few meters away from them. She still had bruises and cuts from this morning, but they were slowly healing in due time. She sadly looked at the ground as she started walking toward her friends and the dragons. She then stopped in front of Twilight and lifted her head to meet her eyes.

“I’m so sorry for what I’ve done Twilight.” Rainbow said quietly. Twilight sadly looked at Rainbow Dash, and spoke.

“I’m sorry to Rainbow Dash. I never should’ve raised my voice at you like that. I was just angry for your actions against Spyro and Cynder.”

“I know, and you had every right to be angry with me, and I’m sorry.”

Twilight smiled and gave Rainbow a loving hug. She carefully hugged her to make sure she wasn’t hurting her from her wounds.

“I forgive you.” Twilight said. Rainbow smiled and returned a hug of her own. The two broke the hug and Rainbow walked up to Spyro.

“I’m really sorry for what I did to you Spyro. It wasn’t cool of me to attack you like that. I…I was just scared.”

Spyro smiled and gently placed a claw over her shoulder. “I understand Rainbow. You were only trying to protect your friends and your home. And, I’m also sorry for nearly killing you out of anger. It wasn’t right for me to do that. I hope you can forgive me for that.”

Rainbow smiled and nuzzled his cheek, which caused him to blush a little.

“It’s alright. I won’t make the same mistake again.”

Rainbow stepped back and smiled. Spyro smiled as well. Rainbow finally walked up to Cynder and felt extreme guilt in her heart. She frowned and looked at the floor.

“I’m especially sorry to you Cynder. I never should’ve attacked you and Spyro like that. I hope you can forgive me for my actions.” Cynder looked back at Spyro, which he gave her small nod to accept her forgiveness. She looked back at Rainbow who was still looking at the floor with guilt. She closed her eyes for a second and finally opened them with a smile. She gently pulled Rainbow Forward into a gentle hug. Rainbow was first shocked by this, but soon relaxed and returned a hug to her as well.

“I forgive you Rainbow. I know you were trying to protect your friends.” She slowly pulled her away and continued speaking. “But remember this, ‘never judge a dragon by his or her scales.’”

Rainbow smiled and sighed with relief that Spyro and Cynder forgave her for what she did. What happened this morning was all now water under the bridge. Twilight and her friends walked up to her and smiled.

“I’m proud of you Rainbow.” Twilight said with a smile.

“Thanks Twi.” Rainbow said happily.

Spyro walked up and stood next to Cynder and smiled.

“I’m proud of you Cynder.” Spyro said while nuzzling her cheek. Cynder blushed, but happily nuzzled her back.

“Thank you Spyro.” She softly said.

While everyone was starting to calm down after the events of what happened, Rainbow then realized something. Was the egg okay? Cynder then looked at Rainbow and she saw fear in her eyes. She smiled and walked up to her; putting her claw on her shoulder. Rainbow then looked up at Cynder.

“It’s okay Rainbow. The egg is not harmed.” She claimed.

Rainbows eyes widened with shock and relief. How was the egg able to withstand such force she gave her? Cynder saw the confusion in her eyes, and gladly explained.

“You see, dragon eggs born from female dragons in Avalar have a very strong, and thick shell. They are able to withstand a good amount of force. Only other dragons, extreme force, or dark magic can destroy a dragon egg from Avalar. The force you put in was only a walk in the park for the egg.”

“But…but why did scream when I hurt you in that area?” Rainbow asked.

Cynder softly frowned.

“Well, Female dragons don’t experience pain when an egg inside their body grows, because the egg has room to grow when female dragons are at their full adult state. Apparently when a female starts a family at the time they’re able to reproduce, the egg will use up a lot of space in the body. As the egg continues to grow, the lower part of the body expands, causing pain to occur. When you landed the hit where the egg was being developed, my body felt the force of your strike, causing extreme pain to me.”

Rainbow felt guilty for her actions, and the way she hurt Cynder, but Cynder comforted her by rubbing her shoulder; which made her calm down and smile.

“It’s been bothering me for a while ever since me and Spyro mated, but the time for the egg to be laid will come very soon.” Cynder said.
“Well, with all that disaster behind us, I would think we should all properly introduce ourselves.” Rarity said. They all nodded in agreement.

“My name is Rarity. It is a pleasure to meet you two. I also want to congratulate you two for starting a family together.” Rarity said.

“Thank you Rarity and it’s a pleasure to meet you as well.” Spyro said. Rarity gave them a warm smile. Then the orange pony walked up to them.

“Howdy. Names Applejack. It’s nice to meet you two. Am the owner of a farm called ‘Sweet Apple Archers’. It would be a pleasure fer you and Cynder to come visit sometime.”

“Nice to meet you as well Applejack. We would love to come visit your farm sometime.” Cynder said with a smile. Applejack gave them a warm smile in return. Suddenly, the pink pony appeared in front of their faces; speaking without taking in one sentence.

“HellomynameisPinkiePieilovemeetingnewponiesorinyourcasedragonsiwouldlovetothrowyouandcynderapartydoyoulovepartiesilovepartiesheckwhodoentlovepatiesandialsowopuldwanttocongratulateyoutwoforstartingafamilytimustbeexitingiforonelovetomeetthenewdragon.” She said without taking one breath.

The dragons had their eyes widen and blinked a few times from the sudden shock of her appearance and speech. The girls giggled. Spyro glanced over Twilight and raised his scaly brow in confusion.

“That’s just Pinkie being Pinkie. You’ll get used to it.” Twilight giggled. Spyro and Cynder then giggled from the event. Finally, the yellow mare walked up with her face being covered by her mane.

“Umm..Hi. M-my name is…F…FlutterShy.” She said weakly.

“I’m sorry, we couldn’t hear you.” Cynder said.

“My name is…Fluttershy” she said a little more louder for them to hear.

“Fluttershy. That’s a perfect beautiful name for you. It suits you well.” Spyro said.

Fluttershy blushed a little by his calm, kind words.

“Umm…thank you…Spyro.” Fluttershy said with a small smile. Spyro and Cynder smiled back.

“And I’m sure you two are acquainted With Rainbow Dash.” Twilight said.

Rainbow flew up to the dragons. “Not only that, I’m also the fastest flyer in all of Eque- AAh!” A sharp pain caught up to her wing and she landed.

“Rainbow?” Twilight was a little nervous.

“It’s okay Twi. I guess the recovery is going slower than I expected.” Rainbow said while she rubbed her sore wing.

Spyro and Cynder looked at each other and nodded.

“I think me and Cynder can help you speed up your recovery.” Spyro said gaining the ponies attention.

“What do you mean darling?” Rarity asked.

“Stand back and we’ll show you what we mean.” Cynder said.
The ponies arched a brow with confusion, but stepped back. The dragons closed their eyes and silence fell through the forest. Then, the crystals around their necks began to glow. Suddenly, the ground below them started to shake; making the ponies a little scared. Their fear was suddenly replaced with shock and awe as a red crystal began to slowly grow out of the ground.

“Sweet Celestia.” Rarity said with her mouth a gap.

“Oh ma stars.” Applejack siad with shock.

“Coooool.” Rainbow said with amazement.

“Oh my.” Fluttershy said surprised and a little scared.

“OOOOO! Sparkley!” Pinkie said with a huge smile on her face.

“Amazing.” Twilight said with a loss of words.

“I…that’s…wow.” Nyx said unable to form her words.

Spike on the other hand was drooling uncontrollably at the sight of the red crystal. His eyes widened, licking his lips.

After the crystal stopped growing, Spyro and Cynder opened their eyes and saw the ponies with shocked faces. The two simply chuckled at the sight of their faces.

“What’s the matter? Never seen a crystal grow out of the ground before?” Spyro chuckled.

“How-how did you do that?” Twilight asked.

“I’ll explain later. First things first.” Spyro said.

Spyro walked up to the crystal and placed his claws on it. Out of the bloom, the crystal began to glow. Bit by bit, the crystal began to disappear; leaving a trail of red energy behind. Spyro then started to absorb the energy into his body. The ponies watched what Spyro was doing and their eyes and mouths widened more. Finally, the crystal disappeared. Spyro stood before then with red aura swirling around him.

“Rainbow. Can you come here please?” Spyro asked. Rainbow was a little scared. “Don’t worry, nothing bad will happen to you. I’m just going to heal your wounds.”

Rainbow slowly made her way to Spyro and sat. He gently placed his claw on her shoulder and closed his eyes again. The red aura around him left and entered Rainbows body. The sudden energy made Rainbow jump a little, but then relaxed while the red aura began to do something to her. To her and the pony’s surprise, her wounds and bruises began to heal at an instant. Waves and relief and relaxation flowed through her body as the energy continued to heal her.

/So this must be how Spyro and Cynder heal their wounds. Incredible./ Twilight thought.

Finally, the red aura faded away; Rainbow was now healed up. All her wounds, cuts and bruises were gone like they were never there in the first place.

“Better?” Spyro asked.

Rainbow was at a loss of words over what Spyro did, but was grateful to him for healing her.

“Yes. Thank you.” Rainbow said with a smile. Spyro smiled back.

“How did you do that? What was that all about? What kind of crystal was that? I’ve never seen a crystal like that ever in my life.” Twilight said getting up into Spyros face.

“Woah, woah, woah calm down Twilight. I can explain what just happened.” Spyro said calmly. Twilight finally calmed down and moved away from Spyro a little.

Spyro then started to explain. “You see, what that Crystal you and your friends saw was called a-“

Spyro was then immediately cut off by the sight of a bright light. It was so bright, everyone had to cover their eyes. After the light finally dimmed, the ponies saw a fearing sight. A blue Pony with wings and horn, with sparkling mane flowing and with a crescent moon on her flank was lying on the ground unconscious with many bruises and cuts all over her body. The ponies and young dragon immediately knew who it was.

“PRINCESS LUNA!” they all gasped. They all ran over to her to check to see if she was okay. Spyro and Cynder followed behind as well. Twilight didn’t know why she was like this.

/Who could’ve done this?/ she thought while she looked at the unconscious night princess.

To be continued…
