Ch 2:Welcome to Canterlot High!


"Got any eights?” Twilight asked.

Applejack, Rarity, Pinkie, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash and her were all in the school library waiting for Sunset to start a meeting, but she was running late, so the girls decided to play a game of cards while waiting.

"Nope, go fish." said Rainbow Dash. “Urgh!" Twilight grumbled as she pulled out a card.

"Where the hay is Sunset?! We've been playing this game for over an hour now!” Applejack complained.

"I don't know, but it doesn't matter if she does show up. The bell's gonna ring any minute now!” Twilight said.

"I' still want to know why she stood us up "Applejack said, settling down a bit.

"She has been doing this a lot lately…" Rarity said as she pulled out a card from the pile.

"Yeah, she's been late for almost all of our meetings, sometimes she doesn't even show up! Got any fives Dashie?” Pinkie explained to her friends.

"Forget meetings, she's been late for a bazillion classes! I lost count of how many times she was sent to Principal Celestia. I think she even broke my record! Go fish. "Dash said, not looking up from her cards.

"I'm not sure why but I think it has something to do with her trying to find a job." Twilight suggested.

The doors to the library suddenly opened as Sunset Shimmer ran towards her friends.

“I..am... so sorry...that...I'm late….again..."She panted, stopping at each word to catch her breath, "Has the bell rang yet?"

Fluttershy shook her head, "No, not yet."

Sunset sighed in relief. "Thank goodness! I was looking for a job, and it lasted longer then I thought."

"Meanwhile, we were all here waiting for you for over an hour, getting destroyed by Rainbow at cards!” Applejack said raising her voice at Sunset a bit.

"I'm sorry, I didn't mean to, It's just that I found this perfect place and…well….I got carried away…"

"Did you get the job?” Twilight asked curiously.

"Unfortunately, no.." she sighed, "I'm sorry for making all of you wait for me for over an hour...wait...if it's been an hour, how come the bell hasn't rang yet?” she asked them.

"Don't you remember? We have a school meeting with Cloudsdale High for our little competition now, so classes are canceled for the rest of the week, only the competitors are going to stay.” Rainbow explained.

"Oh, yeah! That's why everyone is gone! I thought that they all just went to class and I was just late again.” Sunset told them.

"I am so excited for this!!! I love meeting new people, even if they are our enemy!” Pinkie exclaimed as she started bouncing everywhere.

"Pinkie, they are not our enemy! They are simply our fellow competitors.” Rainbow corrected her.

“Meh, same thing.” Pinkie shrugged.

“Actually, it's no-“ Twilight began explaining to Pinkie but was cut off as the school bell rang.

"And saved by the bell!” Rainbow said getting on her feet and headed towards the doors.

"Come on y’all! Let's see who we’re up against!” Applejack shouted in excitement as everyone headed towards the gym.


"Aright everyone! We’re here!” Principal Shade said as the bus parked in front of Canterlot High.

The doors of the bus opened and the students all started to get out and get some fresh air after the long ride. But some were not paying that much attention.

"What do you think Soarin?” Fleetfoot asked her brother, but she received no response.

"Soarin?” She turned around to face him only to find him with his headphones on and playing something on his phone. She rolled her eyes and quickly pushed his headphones back.

"Hey!” he shouted at her.

"Soarin, this is serious! You know very well what happened last time our school played against Canterlot!”

Soaring sighed. "Yeah yeah I know, we lost. But that was a long time ago! Our team wasn't there when the schools competed, but now that we are, we will defeat them! I know it!” He said confidently.

"I hope you're right,” Fleetfoot said.

"Alright students, you all have 10 minutes to look around before meeting me and the Canterlot High students at the gym, which is at the center of the school.” Principal Shade said to the students before heading towards the Principal's office to met her old friend.

“Well, I might as well make the most of it.” Soarin said walking in the school.


"So what do you think? Will these guys be a challenge or a piece of cake?” Applejack asked the others as they all headed to the gym.

"I don't know, I was never really interested in other schools’ academics.” Sunset said.

"Well I do, and I can assure you that Cloudsdale High is no piece of cake! I used to go there in preschool, and boy are they good! Especially at sports! Every one of them is as good as me, if not better!” said Rainbow Dash.

"Well I guess we'll have to bring everything we've got! But come on now Rainbow! They can't be that good!” Applejack said, assuring Rainbow.

“Trust me, they are.” Rainbow sighed. She suddenly stopped walking. "Oh! I forgot my backpack!” Rainbow shrieked. "Be right back!” She said taking off back to the library.


Soarin was now in the school and so far he liked what he saw. The school looked pretty decent with nice decorations, nice design, and by the looks of it, the students looked pretty friendly too. Usually when he and the rest of his team went to compete against other schools,the students would gave them dirty looks. But these students were different, maybe it was just because they didn't know who he was. Maybe...but he knew one thing for sure, he needs to focus! And this time more than ever! Principal Shade was counting on him, and he wasn't going to let his school down. Now all he needed to do was find those girls Principal Shade showed him.

"Ugh!" he growled as someone bumped into him,knocking them both down.

"Uh, I am so sorry!” A female voice said as she began to get up, Soarin doing the same.

"It was my fault I-“ he stopped at the sight before him.

That's it. He simply couldn't focus anymore. The sight was just..too much! Dash didn't feel any different either! They just stood there, staring at each other. Soarin couldn't stop looking at those beautiful magenta eyes, her sweet face, her sparkling rainbow hair -wait a minute. Rainbow hair? It was her! The girl whom Principal Shade had said was Canterlot's best student! She’s the one he was supposed to keep a close eye on. She already looked amazing in the photo but...to see her in person was definitely something else! She was gorgeous…

"Wait! What am I thinking? She's supposed to be my biggest enemy during my stay at this school!" Soarin thought.

Of course Soarin would never laugh at his fellow competitors and be a jerk to them, but he was not supposed to be crushing on them!

"Come on dude, focus!" he thought.

"Uh, hehe, sorry about that. Are you alright?” He asked her, breaking the awkward silence between them.

"Yeah...I-I'm fine thanks.” She replied, breaking the eye contact as well. "Hey… how come I haven't seen you around here before? Are you new or something?” She questioned.

"Actually I'm here for the competition. I'm from Cloudsdale High.”

Dash took a step back. "You're from Cloudsdale High?! Wow you guys came here fast! Where are the others?” She asked.

"Oh they're just having a look around before the meeting, speaking of which ... I was told it was going to be held at the gym but ... just in case, would you mind showing me the way, please?” He asked her.

"Sure thing! Let me just get my backpack at the library and I'll show you the way! I'm going there myself anyway.” She said, taking off.

“Great!" Soarin replied. He didn't really need any help. He was more then capable of finding the gym himself, but in order to get more information about her, he needed to take every chance he could get to be with her, and besides...when he met her eyes..he felt a little spark. He felt somewhat of a connection with her at that moment. For some reason, he felt that she belonged with him. It just feel so right. He couldn't describe it, but right now, he needed to be with her and find out more about her, and that's what he'll do.


After a few minutes, Soarin and Dash appeared at the gym and everyone was already there.

“Well, here we are!” Dash said to him.

“Nice!” He commented. "Thanks again…” He faced her with a stunning smile on his face.

She slightly blushed, "Like I said, it was nothing." she said, meeting his eyes just like before. They really were breathtaking and looked just like emeralds.

"Attention students!" their eyes widened as wandered away from each other and towards Principal Celestia, who had appeared on the stage.

"I welcome you all to our school, and I assure you that we will have the best time together!” She greeted them happily with a warm smile.

“Haha, how very delightful! But I am afraid that we aren't here to have fun but to win" Principal Shade said, glaring at Principal Celestia.

"Ah yes, I believe that you take these friendly competitions very seriously, but the students should still have a good time. I for one will make sure of it.”

Principal Shade rolled her eyes as Celestia continued "The games begin in two days,and those will be..." she glanced at the clip board she was holding and began reading. The students all leaned forward, excited to know what the activities will be.

"Science, Spelling bee, Baking, Art and Math!” She announced. "In the mean time, I suggest you all spend your time here wisely, good luck everyone!"
