At this year's Friendship Games, the Canterlot Wondercolts are determined to beat the Shadowbolts! However, when a new girl arrives bearing resemblances to an old friend, the Mane 6 are thrown off guard.

5. Roller Madness

The next chapter was held in the same place as the archery one, but it was around the track. Principle Celestia stepped up to the microphone again one the platform.

"The second competition is roller-skating. The goal is to skate around the track ten times before time runs out. Whoever finishes first wins!"

Knowing it was their turn, Pinkie Pie and Rarity both stood up, and so did the other competitors... including Lemon Zest and Sunny Flare.

Not too far away, the girls were having a conversation.

"Okay, so we're going to do this faster than usual, right?" Asked Sunny Flare curiously.

"Uh, yeah! Isn't that obvious? We aren't gonna even try! Since the Wondercolts did so good the previous round, we're going to do even better." Lemon Zest laughed in a manner that made her sound almost evil.

From the top of the bleachers, Sour Sweet was twirling her hair like she always does. Her face looked determined and excited at the same time. Standing next to her was Twilight Sparkle, who looked a little bit nervous.

Principal Celestia then called out the names of the people for the first round.

Pinkie Pie, Sunny Flare, and the other two competitors all skated up to the starting line, waiting for the sound of the horn.


And with that, the girls were off!

Even from the start, Sunny Flare started to skate around the court like she was on fire.

Pinkie, who noticed how fast she was going, suddenly felt super-competitive.

"You wanna go fast? I'm gonna go fast! IT'S ON!!"

Suddenly, Sunny felt a gust of wind go past her, and thought it was too good to be true. She, in turn, skated even faster.

2 laps. 3 laps. 4 laps. 5 laps!

The girls didn't care if they were making a scene. Sunny and Pinkie were in it to win it.

Minutes passed and all everyone could see were blurs of color.

Rarity, who was watching them along with the other girls, suddenly didn't feel too good.

"I-I feel like I'm going to be sick..." She complained.

Lemon Zest, who was sitting right next to her, put her hand on Rarity's shoulder and coaxed her. "It's okay... just don't look at them and look at me. Oh, hey Twilight!"

Rarity looked up to see where Lemon was looking.

"Twilight?" Rarity cried out. But then at that moment, she realized that she didn't look like the one she knew.

"Uh... hi, Rarity!" Twilight said brightly. "Oh, Lemon- here's some water for you. I know you accidentally left yours at home."

Lemon took the water hastily. "Ah, thanks! I bet I'll really need it."

Twilight's eyes brightened when she noticed Rarity staring at her thoughtfully.

"Wow, Rarity! I like your cute ponytail! Can I touch it?"

Rarity, who thought this comment was a little odd, didn't want to offend her friend. "Sure, darling. Just don't mess it up, please

Twilight walked over and touched her hair delicately. While doing this, Rarity felt a slight pain in her head.

"Have a nice day!" Twilight said as politely as she could and walked out of the arena, heading to her school.

Twilight Sparkle's school, Crystal Prep, was far away from Canterlot High, but it didn't take too long to get there, mainly because there wasn't much traffic.

When she arrived there, she was slightly surprised that the doors were still open... she had no idea why.

Clip, clop. Clip, clop. Her boots made heavy noises as she laboriously made her way up the long, swirly stairs. However, each step she took made her more and more excited to see what her new research led her to.

Finally, about five minutes later, she ended up in the top main hallway of her school. Literally shaking in her boots, she made her way to classroom 412... the science lab.

Her hands, shaky and sweaty with excitement, turned the nob to the lab room, which was basically like her home.

As she walked in, she was thinking aloud what she was going to do.

"I should probably look at the DNA in these first."

Twilight promptly got out a microscope from a cupboard labeled 'science tools' and quickly got to work.

She, being careful, put Fluttershy's strand of hair on a slide and put it on the microscope, and zoomed in.

"Woah... that's strange! It looks pretty normal. I should compare it with my hair."

Sure enough, when she compared the two, they were almost exactly alike.

"Hm... now how about comparing it to Rarity's?"

When she did, something strange happened. The both hair strands started to grow! Twilight then had the brilliant idea of separating them again.

The hairs strands shrunk and went back to normal.

"Hmm..." Mumbled Twilight, thinking deeply. "I think I finally found out what's up with these girls..."

Author's Note:

Finally! It took me a while, didn't it? :trollestia:
But anywho, yesterday was fun. Me and my family spent some family time together and went shopping and stuff. I got a new book to read and one of the new Ty pony plushies.
And here I am today! Posting a chapter! A day early! Whoo-hoo! :pinkiehappy: Knowing me, I'll probably post another one tonight. I would like to get them all on here before season 5 begins... what a goal, right? :derpytongue2:
FUN FACT: The last part of the story was inspired by a scene from the show H2O: Just Add Water, or more specifically, the episode "The Denman Affair".
