Rescue

Rock found himself standing near the small, isolated house. He noticed that he was near a pretty big forest, and that there seemed to be small areas dedicated to housing critters. He wondered who would be willing to care for so many animals. Continuing on, Rock decided to peek through the window, hoping to see whoever lived there. He slowly walked to the only window that was not covered in curtains. He ducked slightly, hoping that whoever was inside wasn't able to see him and the robot scouch walked to the window.

He peeked upward, getting a closer look. The inside was kept tidy, a small sofa sat near the opposite window and a stair case led to an upstairs room he could not see. 'Huh. Pretty small place.' he noticed, seeing that for the most part the house could only shelter one, maybe two people inside it. He turned his head, seeing a table standing nearby the couch and holding a lamp. Rock was hoping that he could see if the person that occupied the house was even inside at all.

When Rock heard the faint sound of footsteps from inside, he ducked out of sight from the window for a second, making sure that he wasn't seen. Rock knelt down, keeping himself quiet. A few seconds passed, and Rock took a risk, slowly rising up to see through the window, praying that the occupant didn't see him.

What he saw surprised him greatly.

A yellow horse with wings and a flowing pink mane hovered around the small house, humming as she was feeding creatures like mice, a rabbit, and a bear. 'Am I sure my sensors are working?' he wondered, 'That is a yellow horse. My data doesn't have any record of neon colored equines. Either they are with humans or they are the dominant species of this dimension.' Rock wondered, watching the horse continue her nurture the animals inside her tiny house.

Standing up, Rock realized that he needed to speak to her, even though she might not know what he was. 'Well, I look human... But there is a good chance that humans do not exist here. I should be wary until I learn more of this dimension.'

Rock stood up, staying out of sight of the horse for now. He paced to the door. The robot knocked. A creaking sound was heard and the door began to open slowly, "Um... Hello?" the horse asked, Rock noticing that it was female. She peeked through the hole, her pupils shrinking upon the sight of Rock.

"Hi there!" he greeted in a friendly manner.

The door slammed immediately, and Rock could hear a whimpering sound through the door, 'I don't blame her for being scared. Heck seeing something like me in what appears to be a peaceful world like this.' he thought, the boy knocked once more, "I'm not gonna hurt you, believe me, I'll never hurt anyone." Rock assured, 'My programming will make sure of that.' he mused.

He saw the door open once again, this time the winged horse was standing behind it, "O-okay... Are you sure?" she asked, quietly doubting the robot.

"I promise you, that I will not hurt you. I'm only here to ask a couple questions. Then after that I'll be on my way." Rock comforted, smiling all the while. The horse nodded upon hearing his words, opening the door enough to allow the robot inside. Rock had to duck a little in order to fit through the entrance, but the house was large enough to fit in.

The horse sat down on her couch. Animals of all kinds began to surround Rock in curiousity and awe. The robot moved his arms slowly as to get his bearings and avoid hurting the critters with his metal body. The winged horse smiled lightly, "It looks like they like you." she noticed, watching Rock pet a bear, which to the young helper robot, was very unusual for him. Then again, for him, meeting a talking winged horse was strange enough for him.

"Uh, good. Anyway, I don't think I got your name. My name is Rock." the robot introduced, pointing at himself while attending to the squirrels on his lap.

"M-My name is... Fluttershy," the pony, named Fluttershy, responded quietly. Luckily, Rock's hearing sensors heard her, so that way ahe wouldn't have to repeat herself. Fluttershy bent down slightly, rubbing the top of a mouse's head. The mouse squeaked in delight, as the pegasus grabbed a tiny piece of cheese in her hoof, to which the rodent grabbed in no time. "It's a pleasure to meet you, Rock, but... I've never seen an animal like you before..." she said, turning her attention back to the robot sitting in her house.

"Ah... Well you don't have to worry about me. I just have a few questions to ask you. If you don't mind." Rock responded.

"Sure..." the yellow pegasus nodded.

"Alright. I guess the first question I should ask is, where am I?"

"Equestria. I live not too far away from Ponyville." Fluttershy answered.

'Equestria? Hm... Doctor Wily sent me to a strange world. Maybe I'll look into Ponyville later...' Rock mused.

Rock put a hand under his chin, "I see... Do you know anybody there? You seem really nice, so you must have some friends."

"Oh..." Fluttershy was caught off-guard by his comment, "Um... Yes. If you want... I-I can take you to meet them. It you don't that is..." she muttered in response.

"Of course. I have a feeling I'm gonna be here a while, anyhow. I might as well get to know somebody to help me find my way around here. At least, until I find my friends..." Rock muttered, recalling that Rush and Proto-Man were sent to Equestria with him.

"You lost your friends? How?"

Rock raised a hand, "I think it'll be best if I don't say for now... Do you mind if you can lead me to Ponyville?" he asked.

"Sure..."

A loud howling sound was heard as Rock and Fluttershy walked out of the house. The robot immediately stopped, "Wait... Do you hear that?" he asked. They were silent until the howl was heard once again. Fluttershy's eyes widened at the noise.

"Oh no... That poor dog... All alone in there..." she gasped, horrified by the dog's situation.

"C'mon. Let's go!"

Rock started to run, but noticed Fluttershy trembling in place. "Are you alright, Fluttershy?"

"Th-That's the Everfree Forest! It's full of monsters and chaotic creatures! Nopony w-wants to go in there!" thr shy pegasus revealed, still shaking in her spot.

Rock nodded in understanding, "Alright. I guess I'm going in alone." he deduced.

"What!? Y-You can't!"

Rock smirked, clearly Fluttershy doesn't know him well enough yet. He started to run once again and said, "I'm more than capable of handling myself! I'll be back soon!"

"W-Wait!" the pegasus pleaded.


Once out of Fluttershy's sight, Rock transformed into Mega Man, allowing him to combat whatever threats lie in this seemingly damgerous forest, 'She may have a point. All the forests I've been too have been dangerous... Then again that was probably because of Wily's Robot Masters making it a chore for me to reach their hideout for me to blow up the anti-teleportation signal.'

Mega Man hopped over a small pond, landing back on the ground right after doing so. The robot moved some branches out of his way. Another howl was heard, guiding Mega Man to the right location, 'Rush can't teleport because we're in a strange land... So that means no signal, and that will make searching for Proto-Man harder than I thought.' he processed.

He found himself in an open field, where a red dog lied on the grass in fear. "Rush!" he called. The dog perked up and immediately tackled his owner. "Ha ha! It's alright, boy!" he assured, petting Rush on the top of his head.

A rustling sound was heard, getting Mega Man's attention. A strange lion-like creature hopped out of a bush, nearly tackling the robot and dog, had Mega Man not slid out of the way. He held out his Mega Buster, ready to shoot, 'Wait... My scanners say this... Manticore is an organic creature... I can't hurt him...' the manticore swiped at the robot boy, nearly scratching his armor in the process.

Mega Man grabbed Rush and hopped off the base of a tree, leaping over the wild manticore that was attacking him. The robot hero landed on the ground, with his dog still in his grip. The monster turned around, finding Mega Man right where he wanted him. The Blue Bomber slid underneath the creature's legs, 'How am I going to get out of here?' he thought, 'Wait... Why didn't I think of it earlier?' he wondered.

Rush barked as Mega Man spoke, "Hey, Rush. Turn into jet mode. We gotta get outta here!" he said, avoiding a swipe from the manticore's claws. Rush turned into a jet, allowing Mega Man to step on. The robot ascended, leaving the manticore to roar at him from the ground, "Nice work, boy. Now there's someone you have to meet!" he said with enthusiasm.
