Chapter 2: Nightfall

She walked with the other two mares, hiding in the shadows. She hated her new thirst for blood, and she hated the mare leading them even more for killing him. She kept her mouth shut while the other two led; she didn't want to anger the leader. As much as she hated her, she was still afraid of her. Especially after knowing what she did.

She flexed her wings a little, trying to distract herself. She still wasn't used to having bat wings or fangs, and the fact that she could hear he other two mares' heartbeats was something else entirely. She ran her tongue along her teeth very gently, not wanting to accidentally slice it open, and looked around the area. They were deep in the Everfree by now, and the trees surrounded them. She thought she heard Timberwolves howling far away, and with her new hearing it wouldn't surprise her if she did.

"So," the yellow one said in a soft but commanding voice, "how do you feel, Night?"

"I wouldn't know," she replied.

"Apologies for your friend, but I was very hungry," the leader replied, shaking her pink mane out of her eyes.

I'm sure you're sorry, she thought. "Shit happens," she said instead.

"Fair enough," the leader replied.

"I don't think it was necessary..." The white mare said, looking at Night apologetically, "not only was it a waste, but she clearly loved him. When I woke I saw her trying to bring him back."

Night couldn't ignore the slight posh accent the white and purple mare spoke with. She also couldn't deny that she enjoyed the mare's presence, even if she was clearly more interested in the yellow and pink mare beside her. Night looked up, and saw the half-moon above them. She hated leaving the town she had grown to love, but she had no choice. If she tried to run, it was likely the leader would kill her.

"I do hope there are no hard feelings," Flutterbat said, a slight smirk on her face.

"No hard feelings?" Night was disgusted by the question. "Of course there are hard feelings. You killed my fiancée, I don't think I'm about to forgive that."

"What a pity... You're so beautiful, too..." The leader looked back at her, and before she knew it she had Night pinned to the ground, struggling against the stronger vampire. "I think you need to be reminded that for us, it's kill or be killed. You may think that you can go home, but that's a very far stretch from the truth."

"And how would you know?" Night protested. "Have you even tried to?"

"I, myself, have no home. My home is the night," the yellow one stated with a low growl.

"Fluttershy, stop this," Night heard the unicorn say. "It won't do us any good if you kill her."

"I don't think you have any say in the matter. Now step aside before I kill you, too," she hissed.


Flutterbat whirled her head around. "Who said that?"

Hurt the other one if you must, but leave Rarity alone.

She was at a loss for words. The voice was coming from everywhere at once.


Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Twilight and Pinkie Pie walked through the town, the moon low in the sky in the west, the first hints of dawn in the east. They didn't know how bad the sunlight might affect them, so Twilight made a mental note to get them inside before sunlight. The four entered the library, somewhat cautiously. Twi was still shaken up about what she had accidentally done to Pinkie Pie, but she was forgiven as soon as the party pony was awake and bouncing around as usual. That, and getting used to her newfound wings. Twilight and Applejack had no idea how Pinkie wasn't complaining about the pain in her sides, but they dismissed it simply because it's Pinkie Pie. The mare had proven more resilient than they had previously assumed, and so the others just let her deal with it.

Currently, Applejack and Rainbow Dash lay together on the couch while Twilight made certain that the windows were covered. Pinkie Pie inspected her new, bright pink, bat-like wings; getting giddy over the thought of actually flying like Rainbow Dash. The latter seemed too tired to start lessons, so Pinkie let her be, instead thinking about all the new and exciting opportunities that the wings granted them. Twilight, once finished with the windows, walked towards the party pony and gave her a friendly smile.

"How are you feeling, Pinkie?" she asked, sounding as tired as she felt.

"I'm super duper!" the pink earth pony replied.

"That's good, we need everyone at the top of their game if we're gonna pull this off," Twilight said, smiling a little.

"And what exactly are we gonna pull off, Twilight? " Applejack spoke up from the couch.

Twilight looked at each of her three remaining friends with a half determined stare. "We're gonna get our friends back and make things like they were. No matter what, we have to fix this."

Rainbow nodded in agreement, as did Applejack and Pinkie Pie.

"Well, count me in," Dash said.

"Me too," came Applejack's voice.

"Me three!" Pinkie chimed in.

All three voices gave Twilight hope. Hope that they would be able to fix things before they got too out of hand. Of course, it already seemed like they had. And that was the biggest challenge of all.
