Chapter 5

Twilight blinked as Ms. Heartstrings went through basic anatomy of the human body. What seemed odd was how Ms. Heartstrings was using the horse skeleton for her lecture of the human body. Twilight groaned as the human skeleton was going to waste right next to the teacher. She looked around the classroom and noticed most of her classmates didn't even bother paying attention to a word that Ms. Heartstrings said. She looked beside her and noticed Rarity was filing her nails and fixing her makeup. Ms. Heartstrings continued on with her ramblings of the evils of talking horses and how society would be with the possible future of the Equine Rebellion.

How was this person able to become a Teacher for this school?

“That was just my first encounter with the evil talking horses,” warned Ms. Heartstrings, her lesson having transitioned to her stories. “The very same thing could happen to you, so be careful!”

The class only groaned in response as she went back to her lesson.Twilight glanced over as a hand slowly raised, and she looked over to see who it was. Ms. Heartstrings pointed to the hand, and a shaky voice began to speak. Twilight looked closer and saw the hand belonged to the blonde girl that spilled the punch bowl on her.

“Ms. Heartstrings, wouldn't it be better if we used a human skeleton? I mean... this is AP Biology, after all.”

Ms. Heartstrings only laughed as she resumed to pointing at several bones in the horse's body. “Why use a human skeleton to explain things when the horses will soon take over?”

“W-Why would the horses take over?” she asked very nervously. She looked around the classroom looking for her peers to support her argument, but sighed when she realized nobody was paying attention.

“Why wouldn't they take over? I mean us humans have it pretty good,” explained Lyra as she laid the skeleton on her desk. “The horses stand around plotting their takeover, and what do we humans do about it? Nothing, that’s what!

“But... why would they take over the world?”

“Why wouldn't they?” responded Lyra. “We humans have destroyed this world. It would easy for the horses to take over it.”

“But, my question is why?”

“Ms. Ditzy Doo, the horses are going to rise up! You may call me crazy, but when that day comes, I will be the one that will say that I told you.” she announced, pointing to the several newspaper clippings hanging on her door, “When the horses come and take over, it’ll be better to know the anatomy of our future equine overlords.”

The class groaned at the response of their teacher. Lyra ignored the groaning of her class and resumed with her insane horse overlord ramblings. Twilight looked at the clock of the classroom and sighed when she realized there was still half an hour left of class. She yawned as she slumped down in her seat. Rarity looked over and gave her a concerned look.

“Twilight, dear, are you alright?”

Twilight rose from her seat and nodded to Rarity in response. “Yeah, I'm just tired.”


“Yeah, I had the strangest dream,” Twilight yawned in response.

“What was the dream about? If you don’t mind me asking,” Rarity said, still concerned for her friend.

“Some voice talking to me in my sleep,” she recalled. “It was pretty strange. It was talking to me… it was almost like I knew the voice.”

“Well, did you?”

Twilight shook her head and sighed. “No. I had no idea who it was. They just kept on saying the same thing over and over in my dream.”

“That's strange,” Rarity murmured.

“The strangest part is that the voice knew my name.”

“Girls!” Lyra shouted, glaring at the pair. “If what you're talking about doesn't have anything to do with the horse rebellion, I don't want to hear anything about it!”

“Yes, Ms. Heartstrings,” Rarity and Twilight said in unison. Their attention was now moved towards the whiteboard where the teacher was standing.

Ms. Heartstrings then went to the board and started writing down several words on it. Most of it was a survival guide on what to do if horses ever rebelled. A guide on how to survive an apocalypse, how to dodge a horse running straight at you, and other nonsense. Twilight sighed in annoyance as she wondered if a teacher like Ms. Heartstrings could possibly exist. Part of her wondered if this was a really bad dream she could never wake up from.

Twilight pinched herself and yelped quietly in pain. Rarity shot an inquisitive glance at her, but soon her eyes drifted back to the front. She yawned and looked at the clock, sighing at the lack of time passing.

Not a dream. This is very real.

As her head was resting on her hand, Twilight slowly drifted off to sleep. She wasn’t able to sleep for long, as an alarm started ringing. She soon covered her ears, shielding them from the loud noise the alarm caused. She stood up from her desk and noticed that the students were making their way to the exit. She looked in the front and noticed that Lyra was frantically erasing the whiteboard.

“Thank Celestia we’re out of this dreadful class.” Rarity mumbled as she followed the crowd of students making their way towards the exit. “I don’t think I would be able to survive another minute.”

“It's beginning!” Lyra shouted as her loud booming voice could be heard over the loud alarm. “The rebellion is starting and this is their war alarm!”

“I don't think that's the reason,” Twilight shouted over the bell. “I'm pretty sure that's the fire alarm.”

“Are you sure?!”

“Yes. I am positive that was the fire alarm.”

“I see.” responded Lyra as she went to the door. “One of these days the rebellion will start, and I will welcome it with open arms. I will gladly bow to our future equine overlords with a happy smile and an open mind.”

It’s official. Everyone in this school is CRAZY!

“Money’s on the Food and Nutrition class setting off the fire alarm to go off. Again,” muttered a student in the hall.

“Mine’s on the freshmen not knowing how the bunsen burners work,” another snickered beside him.
As Twilight was walking through the hallway, she was stopped by Apple Bloom as she was handing all who passed her a flyer. She was handed the flyer as well, and Twilight looked at the purple piece of paper and read it. The paper had two people drawn of them, one was a female wearing a dress and the other was a male wearing a suit. The two figures were dancing, and on the bottom there was text that read, “Don't miss the Spring Fling.” On the top some more text read, “You have a chance to be voted the Spring Queen and the Spring King.”

As Twilight was examining the flyer, she bumped into someone. She looked up from the flyer and saw Braeburn smiling, before he tipped his hat to her. She gave the Apple a sheepish smile as an apology.

“Okay, new rule, no more reading and walking.”

“You say something there?” Braeburn chuckled, reading the purple piece of paper. “Well, ah’ll be. Spring Fling is in three weeks!”

“I'm sorry, I need to pay more attention,” Twilight quickly said.

I need to get rid of this bad habit of running into people in the hallway of this school.

“No need to worry there, little lady,” Braeburn smiled, handing the piece of paper back to her. “Ah don't think ah got yer name before. Ah’m Braeburn.”

“Oh,” Twilight giggled as she took the paper from Braeburn. “I’m Twilight.”

“A pleasure, Twilight.” smiled Braeburn as he walked pass her. He soon stopped and turned towards her, a grin plastered on his face. “Hope that kiss was good for you.”

Twilight only responded with a blush as she began to run towards her next period class. When she rushed in, she saw an empty seat beside Fluttershy and sat beside her, giving her a small smile. Fluttershy smiled back and soon the period bell rang. A woman with orange hair and simple yellow blouse rose from her desk and smiled to the class.

“Well hello there, students,” Carrot Top greeted warmly. “Now as we reach the end of Hamlet, I remind you the essay is do six days from now.”

Twilight sighed softly and remembered she was excused from this assignment, since she just transferred. Even if she had to, it didn't really matter. Twilight loved to read, and at some point she had read Hamlet on her own, just for fun. She made a mental note to stop by the library after school to get a head start on the essay.

“Remember everyone, I want you to explore the themes of betrayal as shown in Hamlet. Was Hamlet's insanity all an act, or did he actually go insane?”

Twilight yawned again and rested her head on her hand. Fluttershy gave her a nervous look and quietly and in a hushed voice said.

“Twilight, are you okay?”

“Its nothing to worry about,” Twilight assured her. “I just had some trouble sleeping.”

“Oh, okay,” the meek girl said as her eyes faced the front. “Did you have a bad dream?” she whispered back.

Twilight yawned again. “Yeah, something like that.”

“A bad dream?” eavesdropped Carrot Top as a smile began to appear on her face. “Like the one Hamlet had?”

Twilight only muttered in response. “I hope nothing like Hamlet.”
As Twilight stared blankly at the computer screen in front of her, a faint voice could be heard in the distance. Twilight rose from the seat and followed the voice. She followed the voice to the back of the school's library, to a shelf with a single book on it. She looked at the book and saw five gemstones on each corner of the book. Blue, orange, pink, yellow, red, and in the middle of it a purple one. As Twilight stared at the book, she swore she could a hear a faint voice.

When she ran her hand across its hard surface, the voices went silent. Twilight rushed back to her seat and grabbed her bag. She went towards the front desk of the library and asked the student librarian if she could check it out.

Girls!” shouted a pink haired teenager as she looked towards the group of freshmen listening to the now blasting music. She sighed as she spoke in a much more soft tone. “The library is a place for reading, not for listening to music.”

“Ah’m mighty sorry there, Ms. Cheerilee,” Apple Bloom said guiltily as she rose from her seat. “We were just listening to a new music video we made during TV Production class.”

“Just do it quietly,” Cheerilee warned softly.

“Okay,” the three girls said in unison.

Cheerilee only sighed as she made her way back towards the front desk. Her look of annoyance quickly changed to a cheery smile as she faced Twilight. “Elements of Harmony?” asked the pink haired teenager as she scanned the book. “I take it you're a history buff?”

Twilight shrugged as she took the book back. “Something like that,” she murmured.

“Well, I hope you enjoy this book and the rest of your day,” beamed Cheerilee as she gave a bright smile.

“Thanks.” She put the book in her purple messenger bag and made her way out.

She went back towards her locker and saw two figures standing in front it. A groan escaped as she recognized the two, her brother Shining Armor and his girlfriend of well... forever, Cadence. Twilight never would've thought that her brother would be dating her former babysitter, and she would never have thought of the two being lost without one another. As Shinning had put his hand on the girl with pink hair with purple and yellow streaks running through it. She was leaning against the locker and laughed as Shining had put his arm on her. Shining Armor laughed too as he ran his hand on her arm.

As the couple was about to kiss, Twilight groaned quietly at their lovey dovey antics. She cleared her throat loudly and shot a glare at the two. “If you two are going to make out, I would appreciate it if it wasn't in front of my locker.”

Cadence withdrew herself from Shining and looked behind and saw Twilight. A bright red shade appeared on Cadence's face as she gave Twilight a sheepish smile. She had stopped leaning on the locker and gave Shining a peck on the cheek. She turned herself towards Twilight. “I'm so sorry. I didn't know that this was your locker.”

I didn't know, either,” muttered Shining Armor, his face just as crimson.

Twilight smiled and ignored the glare that her brother was giving. She walked towards her locker, opened it, and nodded softly to her old babysitter. “It's fine, Cadence. Don't worry about."

Cadence gave a nod in return and walked away from the two siblings. Shining Armor frowned, crossed his arms, and shot a glare at his younger sister. Twilight just smiled as she put some of her belongings in her locker. She closed it and gave her brother a mischievous grin.

“Consider that payback for embarrassing me in lunch.” Twilight smirked as she closed her locker and looked at her brother's glare.

Shinning had stopped his frowning and softly laughed as he shook his head. “Okay, I kinda deserved that one.”

Twilight had laughed too, but stopped as she grinned at her brother again. “And consider this another one if I tell mom the real reason why you been staying after school lately.”

Shinning had stopped his laughing and sighed. “Are you blackmailing me?”

His question made her smirk that much more evil. “Maybe.”

“Okay, fine. What I did to to you in lunch was pretty bad.”

Twilight just sighed and gave a mock glare at her brother. “What you did to me that day was completely horrible!”

Shining nodded and ruffled his sister's hair. “Oh come on, Twiley. You’re overreacting a bit.”

Twilight pushed his hand away with some effort. “I told you over and over again, Shining. We aren't children anymore, so stop calling me that. And stop messing up my hair!”
She now sat in her bedroom, the book on her desk with her hands on the hard leather. Twilight gulped and opened it. She was shocked to see all pages of it blank, but soon black text on pages of the book soon appeared.

“Don't believe what you see,” The book said, and soon the text faded to be replaced. “Everything you know, is not the truth.”

Twilight sat at her desk completely dumbfounded. She sat there just looking at the blank pages of the book. Soon more text appeared on the book.

“What is your name?”

Twilight pushed her chair back a little as she stared in disbelief. Moments passed and the text was still there. Twilight grabbed a pen as fast she could and wrote down her name. The text soon vanished and more appeared.

“We have met before, Twilight Sparkle.”

Twilight dropped her pen and rose from her seat. She grabbed the book and started flipping through every page. She gave a sigh in frustration as she saw that the pages in the book were blank. She sat down in the chair opened the book back up and gave a sigh in defeat. More text in the book then appeared.

“We met once as enemies, and then as friends.”

Twilight looked to see the text, but instead was a picture. Two figures were drawn on the page. On the top was a woman dressed in white with a yellow sun it. Her hair was a long flowing pink with sparkles in it. On the bottom stood a woman wearing a dark blue dress with a white moon it. Her hair was a dark flowing blue with white sparkles in it. Twilight knew this picture well, a picture of the Sun Princess Celestia and the Moon Princess Luna. Thoughts soon began to race towards her mind.

“Why did the book stop here? I only know Princess Celestia because I was tutored by her. Princess Luna is still banished on the moon. There is no way that she would be able to talk to me through this book.”

Twilight sighed as she looked at her clock. She gasped at the time and rushed into her pajamas and quickly went to her bed. Twilight yawned and again more and more thoughts began racing through in her mind.

“Princess Celestia told me to write to her everyday, yet she hasn't responded to the first letter that I sent to her. What is going on?”

Twilight tossed and turned trying to get herself comfortable. That didn't stop her eager mind from thinking still.

“Something doesn't feel right and I'm going to figure this mess out.”

Twilight yawned as she stared at the ceiling of her bedroom. She stretched her arms and soon felt her eyes grow heavier. She closed her eyes and soon drifted off to sleep.
