4. Perfect Point

"As you can see, the first competition is archery," announced Vice Principal Luna, excited. Principal Celestia nudged her, as if she wanted Luna to say more.

"Th-the goal is to shoot as many arrows as you can into the bullseye. Whoever gets the most in five minutes wins!"

Everyone who was doing the archery competition was lined up at the back of the arena, including a certain group of people...

"Okay, Sour. Remember what our gym teacher always says? Be precise and quick!" That was Twilight speaking, who was playing with her ponytail.

Sour Sweet clicked her tongue. "Yeah, yeah. I've got this. Piece of cake!"

The two girls did their secret handshake and waited for the horn.

"Applejack, I'm-um... so nervous!" Fluttershy squeaked as she hid behind Applejack.

Applejack sighed lightly. "It's okay, Sugarcube. Just pretend that the audience is a bunch of apples. That's what I always do."

Fluttershy's eyes widened as she heard the crowd stomping and clapping.

"That doesn't help me one bit. Apples don't stomp, clap... and sing!"

All of a sudden, the sound of a microphone was heard. It was Principal Celestia, who was standing a platform in the middle of the arena, ready to announce the first round.

"Alright, students! Representing Canterlot High, Applejack! Representing Cloudsdale Hgh will be... Flitter! Representing Appleloosa High, Honey Crisp! And representing Crystal Prep will be... Sour Sweet!"

The crowd cheered wildly.

"You rock! Whoo-hoo." Whispered Fluttershy, lost in the moment.

Principal Celestia spoke again. "On your marks! Get set! Go!"

The sound of the horn was heard.

Bwoooo!

Techno music blasted from the large speakers in the arena.

Applejack, Sour Sweet, and the other girls were already standing on the X marks and had their bows readied.

Then they started aiming and shooting was much as they possibly could.

Fluttershy, who was sitting and watching the competition on a bench in the back, suddenly flinched.

"Eep!" She shrieked.

"Oops! Sorry about that," said a girl who was sitting beside her.

Wait a second... Fluttershy recognized that voice. It was Twilight Sparkle's! Or was it?

"Twilight?" Asked Fluttershy hopefully as she turned her head.

But this Twilight had pointy, orange glasses and her was up in a sharp ponytail. Maybe she wanted to dress different, Fluttershy thought nervously.

"Yep, it's me!" She said with a fake smile.

"Oh, um... I don't mean to ask this, but... why are you here representing the Shadowbolts? Oh, and how is Ponyville?" She asked that last question with hope and a tinge of anticipation.

Twilight assumed that Ponyville was the place where the other her came from.

"Oh, you know! Great! And what am I doing here? Well, uh... hey, look! That girl totally missed the target!"

Fluttershy looked at where Twilight pointed, forgetting about the fact that she didn't even finished her sentence.

Meanwhile, Applejack was getting fed up with Sour Sweet and the fact that she was totally beating her single-handedly. Applejack thought she was one of the best archers in this town! She thought she had good precision and was very careful and took some time.

Applejack scowled. "Are 'ya just good at this, or are 'ya cheatin'?"

Sour Sweet smiled sickly. "I'm not cheating... I'm winning."

Suddenly, the sound of the horn was heard again.

"Alright, everyone! Representing Canterlot High, Fluttershy! Representing Cloudsdale High, Cloud Kicker! Representing Appleloosa High, Apple Cobbler! And representing Crystal Prep, Twilight Sparkle!"

Fluttershy and Twilight both stood up and walked towards the Xs.

"Good luck, Fluttershy," mumbled Applejack. "I didn't have it." As she was walking back to the bench, she saw the back of Twilight's head.

"That can't be..." She murmured.
