Chapter - 3 - Tea For Two (Rewritten)

Sitting in her private chambers, Connor was anxiously waiting while Celestia poured herself and her guest cups of tea. Celestia's Doctor arrived a lot earlier than expected and easily mended Connor's cheek bone. The damage wasn't extensive but there was a hairline crack. Connor thanked the Doctor for his help too which the Doctor said it was no problem.

"Tell me more about yourself. Maybe tell me about your family, where you lived, your job and so on," said Celestia to the human whilst passing him his cup of tea in her magic. He'd asked her about this earlier and was quite impressed with it.

"I lived in country called England. I lived in a small town where not much of anything happens, you live there either because you can't afford to live or work elsewhere or because you're retired. If you're a young 20-something adult with their whole life ahead of them, the town will only hold you back. My family aren't perfect but they've always done their best to help. School was different, when I first started writing my writing wasn't the neatest. So the teachers decided shouting at me was the best course of action to help me improve. My school life was shit. The only good thing about was that it ended."

"I'm sorry to hear that. Surely things improved?" queried Celestia.

"Not really. I'm long term unemployed, have been for five years," said Connor with a hint of sadness.

"However," Connor continued, "I can't just give up. Because if I do then I'll never have a job and I'll never achieve anything in life. My parents, whilst they are good people, argued a lot. More often as time's gone by. I have reason to believe that my Dad isn't really my Dad and that my Mum is hiding something but I don't know what."

Connor took another sip of tea followed by a deep sigh, the frustration of not knowing getting to him once more, "But I'd rather not discuss it, there's just too many unanswered questions which they just won't answer. If my Dad isn't my Dad then who is? What is my mother hiding? Why am I here? Why can't I get anywhere in life?"

Sighing once more, he leans back on the cushions and looks into her face, one of sadness and sympathy. Standing up she walks over to the human and nuzzles his cheek. Her soft white fur caressing his skin doing wonders to help him relax. He can feel her warmth and kindness radiating off her.

"I'm sorry to hear about the troubles you have endured. I assure you I will do whatever I can to help you assimilate into our society."

A single tear rolls down his left cheek as he wraps his arms around Celestia's neck and hugs her with all his might. Celestia tightly wraps her wings around the human as he breaks down and sobs into her pristine white fur. She'll stay there as long as she needs to. Her new friend needs to release his emotions like this, she can feel that he's been holding them in too long. She isn't sure how many minutes pass but hearing the human stop sobbing, she looks at him with natural care in her eyes.

"How are you feeling?" she asked with concern.

"Better. I guess I needed that, sorry if I made your fur dirty," replied the human whilst drying his eyes.

"You do not need to apologise. I'm here for you whenever you need me. It is getting late, a good nights rest will help. I assure you that you will be treated well. And do not worry about Blueblood, he will be kept busy cleaning the guards latrines under the watchful eye of Captain Shining Armour. Royal or not I will not tolerate him assaulting another being in the manner he did."

"Thank you ma'am. It's not a painful as before, and your doctors did a good job before considering they've never encountered my kind before."

"I'll be sure to tell them that. Come my friend, I will show you to your room, your belongings are there waiting for you."

His room was a short distance away from Celestia's. She wanted to keep him close by as to be sure he's safe, particularly from certain unicorns. Celestia opened the door allowing the human to look around.

"This is a really nice room, and I've got a balcony to so I can more easily stargaze. The night certainly looks beautiful tonight."

Suddenly the human finds himself on the floor with a dark blue pony hugging him tightly, with all four legs.

"We are elated thee appreciates our night," the dark blue pony said in tears.

"Connor, allow me to introduce my little sister Princess Luna."

"Princess, it's a pleasure to meet you," said Connor, slowly turning purple from the lack of oxygen.

"Lulu, the human needs to breath."

Luna opened her eyes, still with tears in them. She lets go of Connor and composes herself.

"Our apologies Connor the Human. We thank thee truly for your comments regarding our night. It is not often we encounter anypony who truly enjoys our stars."

"No problem at all Princess."

"Lulu we should allow our guest to get some sleep," Celestia said as she nuzzled Luna. Turning back to Connor, Celestia asked him "Would you like a pot of tea sending up?"

"That sounds lovely. I appreciate it," responded Connor.

"We bid thee good night Connor the Human."

"Likewise Princess."

"Please call me Luna, Connor the Human," said Luna with a slight twinkle in her eyes.

"Then just call me Connor, Luna."

Luna and Connor hug each other once more before the two Princesses leave the room, allowing Connor to get his sleep. Luna couldn't be happier, she made a new friend who truly appreciates her night. Her face was beaming, something Celestia did not miss. The two Princesses discussed how to help their new friend.

She then remembered seeing the human with a swollen cheek, she didn't ask then as she didn't want appear rude. Curious she asked Celestia about his cheek. Celestia told her what Blueblood did.


In another part of the castle, a certain Unicorn suddenly has more mess to clean up.

Author's Note:

Connor is English. The English, what I am, like their cups of tea. I drink 4-6 cups a day. I dare not think what the world would be like without tea.
