What happens in Equestria when I buy a new Birdbath for my flower garden?

“I’ve been in the land of Equestria for a few months now, and I have seen some of the most mind-boggling things one can ever imagine seeing. When I’d managed to finish that birdbath a few days ago, I have never, not even in my wildest dreams—not in a million lifetimes—would I ever seen an alicorn floating around inside of it.”

The human pondered this as he sat on a small wooden swing on his back porch, looking out over his flower garden. He stared, with a hot mug of coffee in his hands as the morning sun peeks up over the mountains.

“Good morning, Twilight,” I spoke with mild amusement, causing the little purple pony to jerk slightly. Her wings fluttered lightly with the instinctual reflex of being caught. Her head slowly turned to me and she smiled broadly, giving a half-hearted chuckle.

“O-oh, hey! I didn't think you would be up.”

I watched Twilight; after three months here in this very strange land I’ve learned a bit of pony body language. It was weird at first, being rubbed on and nuzzled at very awkward times, but I got used to it. After some research (pestering some friends), I figured out what friendly and unfriendly gestures were when they appeared.

“Not to worry, Twilight, I normally get up around this time of day anyway. It’s when the morning pegasi come in. I find it relaxing to just sit and watch,” I said simply before taking a sip of my morning coffee.

Twilight gives me a quizzical look before making her question known. “Morning pegasi?” Twilight asked just as she heard the flapping of wings.

“Oh, here they come now,” I spoke as we looked up to see two ponies coming down and landing within the overly large birdbath.

You know, when I ordered a birdbath for the flower garden and it said ‘pegasi bath’ instead, I should have figured something was up, but noooo. Then when the mail mare delivered it to my house in a box larger than she was by three extra feet, I should have figured something was odd about it. No, it took two days and catching pegasi sitting in the middle of it singing with flowers in her mane to figure it out.

I walked out to the back porch and found a pegasus in my birdbath…. She stared at me, and I stared back at her, this went on for several minutes until the shock wore off for me.

“Fluttershy, why are you in my birdbath?” I asked

She had a deep blush before finally speaking in a whisper I barely heard, I would not have heard it at all, if not for it being so early in the morning. “I-It’s a pegasi bath,” she squeaked out.

************

And that was when everything fell into place. I didn't order a birdbath at all…. I ordered a pony bath, more specify a bath for the avian variety known as pegasi.

“Oh hey Twilight, it’s nice to see you out; how's the water?” A cyan pegasus says in a gruff voice as she landed upon the edge of the bath and dips a hoof in. “Ooo nice temperature,” she said before looking up at me. “Hey, dude!” I lifted my coffee up to her in greeting while a grey mare landed on the ground nearby stumbling slightly but catching herself before she crashed into the flower bed. She came over and gently placed her hooves on the edge before giving a little hop and slipping into the bath with a sigh.

The grey pegasus looked over to me and gave a very energetic wave causing me to smile as her eyes shift around within their sockets. They all chat for a while as I watch them, Twilight seemed quite embarrassed until Rainbow mentioned it was instinct and that she should just enjoy it. I also told her I didn't mind and she could come by and swim or whatever anytime, that seemed to relax the small alicorn greatly.

It was about thirty minutes later that they all left the small bath, having to get to work and Twilight, I figured, was still a little embarrassed about the ordeal. After some splashing and diving under and coming up fluttering their wings Dash got out and shook kinda like a dog before taking her leave. It was, and still is, quite a sight.

To this day I’m still not sure if I should be watching this, but I find it relaxing and nopony seemed to mind; after all, it is my bath they are using…

After they all left and no more pegasus showed up, I took my leave and got ready for the day; I had to get to work.

I stood upon the back porch looking out into a beautiful sunset, a light covering of stars, a darkening sky with small pinpricks of light starting to shine in the encroaching darkness, the beautiful mix of flowers gently shifting with the wind. A large white pony stared at me with a very wide grin on its face; I thought I’d seen everything this world had to offer, shame on me for ever thinking such things. “Enjoying your evening bath, Celestia?” I said with a slight smile as I take a sip from the mug of freshly brewed coffee I held within my hand.

She gives a nervous chuckle before clearing her throat. “Um, yes, it’s quite nice.”

Author's Note:

I had this thought on and off for a while now and thought I'd sit down and write it, it probley took me little under an hour to write but I wanted to get it out there, I have not wrote anything in so long so I decided to just do a little oneshot because I was in the mood. I hope you all enjoyed it!!!!
