Chapter 13: Friendship

Dalek Zek was almost there. Only one more element to go. The Element of Magic. He wondered what he would have to do to get it. Pull a bunny from a hat perhaps? Make as pony disappear?” What ever it was he felt like he could handle it.

It was the next morning Applejack was bringing Zek to Twilights house.

“Thank you again for helping with the apple harvest." Said Applejack. "I have no idea how you where able to harvest so many of them apples so fast."

“I was feeling extra motivated.” Said Zek. Seriously that mail pony was an inspiration. Zek was still tingling.

“We’ll thank you kindly anyway. Ok we’re here.” Said Applejack. Zek looked around. He did not see any house.

“Where is the house?” asked Zek.

“Oh she lives in the tree.” Answered Applejack.

“She lives in a… tree?” Questioned Zek in his mechanical voice.

“And a library. I don’t feel like explaining.” Said Applejack.

The two walked thought the door. Four ponies where inside. Pinkie Pie, Twilight, Rainbow Dash, and Rarity. The only one from the mane six that was missing was Fluttershy.

“What are you all doing here?” asked Zek.

“Twilight had us gather here to explain something to you.” Said Pinkie Pie.

“Explain?” Questioned Zek

“That’s right.” said Twilight. “It’s about the element of magic.”

“Continue.” Said Zek interested.

“Well you see Zek ‘Magic’ actually draws upon the power of friendship to work. Therefor the Element of Magic is the Element of Friendship. So in order for you to get beyond the force field of magic you need to have friends...”

“Oh…” Zek was disappointed. He had come all this way for nothing. Zek had no friends.

“So we all have gathered here to tell you that we consider you our friend.”

“What?” Said Zek convinced that he had heard wrong.

“We wanted to say that we have to appreciate your help around here.” Said Rarity.”

“Your voice is super duper funny.” Said Pinkie Pie.

“I your pretty cool.” Said Rainbow Dash. Twilight gave her a look. “Oh and I’m sorry, for not trusting you.”

“And I’m sorry for knocking you out.” Said Applejack.

“The truth is.” Said Twilight. “We all misjudged you based on the fact you where an alien and looked differently then us. So to make up for it we want to formally invite you to be our newest friend.”

Zek was speechless.

“I think we broke him.” said Pinkie Pie. “And we’re going to have to think of a new name for the mane six. Hmmm how bout the mane seven?”

These primitives believed Zek to be a friend. This was unfathomable to Zek. He had been working to take over their world and they had shown him nothing, but kindness. Normal Daleks would find this foolish. Zek found it touching. If Daleks could cry…

“So now that you have friends you can see the element.” Said Twilight. “Go on in.” Twilight pushed Zek though the friendship force field into the room where the element was kept.

“We’ll leave you alone to you studies. Good luck.” said Twilight closing the door.

Fluttershy was flying as fast as she could towards Twilights house.

Fluttershy couldn’t believe she had trusted Zek. Worse she had loved him. Yet he was betraying us as she flew as fast as her wings could carry her. Fluttershy had heard Zek talking about his plans the night before with Derpy; she should have gone to warn eveypony right away. But it had been so late at night that poor Fluttershy who normally had a 9:00 bedtime had fallen asleep in the tree.

He was going to enslave us! And everypony trusted him! It made her mad just thinking about it. She started to cry. What made it worse was that she was still in love with him.

Zek was alone in the element room. This was the moment he had been waiting for. Yet for some reason he couldn’t bring himself to destroy the element. What was wrong with him?

The words of the ponies echoed through his head. “So to make up for it we want to formally invite you to be our newest friend.” “Your pretty cool.” “ If you don’t have any friends I’ll be your friend.” “We’re sorry we misjudged you.” “ Your voice is super duper funny.”

No Zek had to drive these thoughts out of his head. He had to complete the mission for the Daleks. But he had friends. No he could not have friends he was a Dalek. But he did. He must execute the mission. He must not betray his friends. He must not betray the Daleks.

He looked at the Element of Friendship. A tiara shaped like twilights cutie mark. He knew what he had to do.

He crushed the element…

Fluttershy opened the door quietly. The room was full of talking ponies

“Um… girls.” Squeaked Fluttershy.

“…And He’s such a fast flyer” said Rainbow Dash to Rarity.

“An he’s so generous with his time.” said Rarity.

“Girls.” Said Fluttershy trying desperately to get everyone’s attention.

“He helped us gather all them moonlight apples faster then you can say lickty split.”
Fluttershy took a deep breath and said.

“GIRLS!” Yelled Fluttershy as loud as she could.

Everypony stopped what they where doing. To look at Fluttershy.

“What is it Fluttershy? It’s not like you to yell. Is everything alright?”

“No everything is not alright. In fact it’s the opposite of all right. Zek’s planning to invade Equestria and he’s destroying the elements of harmony in order to weaken our defenses.”

The mane six was speechless for a few seconds.

“No way.” said Twilight in disbelief. “There’s has to be a mistake.” Said Twilight.

“No mistake Twilight. Listen to this. Fluttershy pulled out her recording equipment and pressed play.

“We have come to mine the land of Equestria for its resources. The ponies will be made into miner slaves. And when they have outlived their usefulness they will be exterminated. I have been destroying the Elements of Harmony in order to get ready for the Dalek invasion.”

There was silence in the room until finally

“I knew from the start would couldn’t trust that tin can.” said Rainbow Dash.

“Quickly to the element!” said Applejack. Everyone rushed from the room towards the element room. They burst in to see Zek standing there.

“May I help you? Why have you interrupted my research?” Said Zek.

“Don’t play dumb Zek.” Said Rainbow Dash. “We know you’ve been trying to destroy the elements of harmony.”

Zek was silent.

“Looks like we arrived in time.” Said Rarity. “The element is still intact.”

“Please. Zek tell me it isn’t true? You’re just researching the elements right?” Fluttershy started to tear up. “Your our friend right? You wouldn’t do that to us? Please just say we misheard you. Please say it was just a joke.”

Zek stared at Fluttershy in silence for a while. Before yelling

“EMERGENCY TEMPORAL SHIFT!” Zek disappeared into a flash of light. Leaving the mane six feeling mad, sad, foolish, betrayed and heart broken.

“We can’t waist time,” said Twilight. “The invasion will be starting soon. Go home and check on your elements. We’ll meet back here.” The sad group of ponies spread out and headed for home. When Fluttershy was out of sight she started to balling her eyes out. The Dalek she loved had betrayed her

And the Dalek invasion was about to begin.
