Blaze meets Zecora

Blaze was walking down the street of Ponyville, wondering what to do next. He had no specific destination in mind and before he knew it, he had ended up at the school. The school building had seen better days, the paint was falling off and the roof looked like it was about to collapse. One thing was coming to his mind, why didn’t anyone do something about it? Well, Blaze had the money and he was going to do something about it, and he knew the mare to help him. He couldn’t help but smile while picturing her holding a paintbrush.

He started to walk again and this time he decided to see how the school children was doing, he knew that they were outside considering he could hear them when he arrived. When he arrived at the back yard, he saw a ball coming towards a thigh speed, which he manged to catch easy. It was red, probably for hoof ball. “Hey mister, can we have our ball back?” He looked at some kids who standing not far from him, he smiled at them and threw it back. a pegasus with black hair managed to catch it. “Thanks mister.” They went back to playing.

Blaze couldn’t help but smile of what he saw, a punch of young ponies having fun. They didn’t care what was happening around them, they were just having fun. He then notices two ponies, one had grey fur with light grey hair, and she was wearing glasses. The other one had light pink fur and her hair had two different colors, white and purple. She was also wearing a tiara on her head. Blaze couldn’t help but question that, was that a trend? Both was earth pony.

They were walking toward three ponies who was sitting by a bench, probably talking. One was an earth pony, she had light yellow fur with red hair and tail, she also had a red bow in her hair which Blaze thought was cut. Then there was a unicorn, she had white fur, purple and pink in her hair and tail. The last one was a Pegasus, she had orange fur with purple hair and tail.

Blaze then looked back the two earth ponies who was walking towards the three others, he didn’t like the smug smile they had on their faces. He decided to find out what they were up to by getting closer. And with that he disappeared.

“What should we do after school? Try and get our cutie marks?” Apple bloom asked her friends.

“I don’t know, we keep doing these pointless things and nothing happens, maybe we should give up.” Said Scootaloo with a sombre voice.

‘So, they want to earn their cutie marks. I have been their myself.’ Blaze thought to himself while watching them. Then the two ponies he saw before approached them, still having that smug smile on their face. ‘What are those two up two?’ He thought while watching them.

“Well, well. Isn’t it the blank flanks?” Said the one with a tiara on its head.

Blaze couldn’t help but question her words. “What do you want Diamond Tiara?” Said the earth pony of the three.

“Oh nothing, I just want to remember you all that you don’t have cutie marks and I do. It’s so pathetic.”

That was all Blaze could take, if there one thing he heats, it’s a bully. “This ends now.” Before Diamond Tiara and the other could react, Blaze stop between her and CMC with his arms crossed. “What the hell do you think you are doing? What gives you the right to look down on other ponies just because they don’t have a cutie mark and you do?” All of them were shock of what happened, they weren’t sure what happened. One minute there were no one there and the next, a pegasus was standing between them.

Diamond Tiara had trouble speaking, she was just in shock. “Who are you and how dare you talk to me like that? Do you know how my father is?”

Blaze took a step forward which made Diamond and her friend to take a step back. “Who I am doesn’t matter right now, what’s matter is that you should not tease does who haven’t a cutie mark, it’s not right. Also, I don’t care who your father is.”

Diamond Tiara was furious, now pony was allowed to talk to her like that. “Why should I care about some blank flank?”

“Every pony starts as a blank flank even you.” She was about answer, but Blaze wouldn’t let her. “You, me and even Celestia herself didn’t have a cutie mark when she was born.” He then moved so fast that he was in her face before she could blink. “I suggest you leave now, before lose my temper.” He then could see fear in her eyes, he looked at her friend with anger in his eyes, that made the pony with glasses to sweat. They both ran away. Blaze stood up. “Brats.” He then looked back the three ponies. “Are you three alright?” They all nodded slowly, not sure what just happened. “Good.” Blaze then spread his wings and took off.

The CMC just watch as the Pegasus flew away, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Bell had no idea who he was. “Who the heck was that and why does he looked like Spitfire?” Apple Bloom asked her friends.

Sweetie Bell wanted to answer her, but she had now idea and her brain had shut down, she had trouble understanding how the pegasus could be that fast. Lucky for them, one of them knew. “Blaze Fury.” They both look at Scootaloo. “That was Blaze Fury, I wrote a paper on him.”

“Blaze Fury? The pegasus who disappeared four hundred years ago? That was him?” Apple Bloom asked her pegasus friend. Scootaloo could just nod. “Wow, he is really fast.”

After confronting the with the bullies. Blaze was now in a bad mood. “Those little brats, I guess Equestria hasn’t chance at all.” He said to himself while walking towards Sugarcube corner. “Maybe some food while calm me down.” When he finally reached the shop, he stop dead in his track. Walking in was someone warning a cloak, Blaze couldn’t see who it was, but he knew what it was. “Zebra.” He said with venom in his voice.

Zecora entered the Sugarcube corner and once inside she could smell all the different flavours, buns, muffins, cake and even more. This was probably her favourite part of Ponyville.

Zecora walked over to counter, where an energetic pinkie was. “Hey Zecora, what can I get for you today?” Pinkie asked the zebra as she approached.

Zecora removed her hood, revealing her white and black mohawk. “Hello Pinkie, I am just her to buy coffee.”

“Sure thing, give me a moment and I give get it for you.” Pinkie said with a smile. She then disappeared in the back to get Zecora’s coffee.

While waiting, Zecora decided to check her bag and see if she remember all she was to buy, she opened the bag and looked into it. “Huh, it looks I forgot to buy carrots, I hope that Carrot top has some left.” She closed her bag and looked up, when she did, she could see a very angry pegasus standing right in front of her with an angry look and before she could react, she was grabbed by the neck, lifted up in the air, she felt her back hitting the wall.

“What the hell are you doing here zebra?” The pegasus asked her with anger.

Zecora tried to answer but it was difficult when he was squeezing to hard. “Blaze, what are you doing.” Zecora looked to her left and saw Pinkie looking at them, she was in utter shock.

“What am I doing? I want to know what a zebra is doing here and why it’s allowed to walk around without supervisor.”

“Her name is Zecora and she lives here, and she’s our friend.”

Blaze couldn’t hear any lies coming from the pink pony, he then looked at Zecora. “I will ask you one question zebra and you better answer right, do you know any time potion?”

Zecora wasn’t sure why he asked the question, she had no idea who this pony was. He then loosen his grip she could talk. ”No, don’t know any time potion, that knowledge was lost over three hundred years ago.”

Blaze looked into her eyes to see if she was lying. “You aren’t lying, that’s for sure.” He then let her go and Zecora fell to the ground, trying to breath.

Pinkie rushed over to her to see if she was alright. “You ok Zecora?”

“Yes, I am fine.” She said between breaths.

Pinkie was relieved when she heard that, then she became angry. “What’s wrong with you Blaze? You could have…” She looked where he was standing but realized that he was gone. “Wow, he is really fast.”

“Pinkie… who was that pony?” The zebra sked the pink pony.

“That was Blaze Fury, the Pegasus that disappeared over four hundred years ago.”

Zecora was shock when she heard that. “That was him?” Pinkie nodded. Zecora just stared at the door, she understand why she could see anger in his eyes.

After the incident at Sugarcube corner, Zecora was walking back to her hut in the Eeverfee forest, still think about what happened. Ever since first day at school, children in Zebra nation had learn about Blaze Fury and the shaman four hundred years ago. It’s has been difficult for her, considering she is a descendant from the shaman that imprison Blaze in the time bubble. The other kids always teased her for it, and she had to live it, it wasn’t easy that’s for sure.

When she finally reached her hut, she was surprised to see who was there. “Blaze Fury.” She whispered to herself. He was sitting not far from her hut and he was meditated, he’s legs was crossed, and he was resting his arms on his knees, what really got her attention was that was hovering, not far from the ground.

She didn’t know what to do, he wasn’t blocking her path to the door, but she was still terrified. She could try and run but something told her that he would catch her really fast, she hadn’t a chance. There was only one option, talk.

“Are you going to hurt me again?” She managed to say.

He opened his eyes, which made her back away a little. Then he did something she never expected he went down on one knee. “I am here to apologize for what I did, I let me hatred for zebra judge my action, I wasn’t think clearly and for that I am truly sorry. Therefore, I am offering my service to you, whatever you ask me to do I will do it, until you forgive me.”

Zecora blinked a few times, not sure what to believe. Not long ago this pony was strangling her, and know he has just pledge his service to her.

She wasn’t sure what to say, eventually she found the words. “That isn’t necessary, you don’t have to do this.”

“As I said before, I let my anger take control and I am sorry. So yes, I have to do this.”

Zecora walked slowly to her door. “No, it’s REALLY not necessary. I am not mad at you or anything.”

“Then I will sit here until you need me.”

She place her hand on the doorknob. “You do that.” She then disappeared into the door as fast as she could. Once inside she leaned against the door and all that she could say was; “What a day.”

For the rest of the day, Zecora was busy fix a potion for the different ponies from Ponyville. Some were for headache, sore stomach and other things. She was preparing the last sup when she notice something. “Damn it, I’m missing some berries.” She look outside and saw that it was getting dark. ‘I hate walking into the forest in the night, but I need mores berries.’ She thought to herself. “Well. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.” She gathers her thing and her staff and headed out.

Once she was outside, she saw that Blaze was still there, meditating. “Are you still here?”

“I told you, I will be here until you need me.”

He was persistent, she give him that. “Tell you what, you help me collect berries and I will forgive you and we can go back to our lives. Deal?”

Blaze opened his eyes to look into her eyes. “Deal.” He stood up and it was then Zecora notice how muscular he was, especially his arms. She also notice how handsome he was, it made her blush. “Is there something wrong considering you are staring at me?” He asked her.

She shook her head. “No, nothing is wrong. Let’s go, I want to get the berries and get home before the sun set.” She decided to hurry it up and started to walk very fast, Blaze couldn’t help stare at her wondering what just happened, he eventually shrugged his shoulders and followed her.

The eventually arrived at the clearing in the forest, where Blaze could see some black berries. He pick one. “You know that these are poison?”

“I am fully aware of that, but they are great for medicine.” Zecora told him.

Blaze had no idea if she was telling the truth or not, but he didn’t know anything about potion or medicine. “If you say so.” He said while looking at the one he picked.

“Here.” She took a plastic pouch out of her bag. “You want to help? Fill this up.” He didn’t say anything, he just took the pouch and started to collect berries. Zecora did the same.

While they were collecting, none of them dear to say anything. One could cut the tension between them with a knife. There was one question that Zecora wanted to ask him, but she didn’t dare. She was afraid to insult him, eventually she ask him.

She stopped and looked over to him. “How was it?”

He looked at her with confusion. “How was what?”

“To get trap in a time bubble, to be awaken four hundred years later?”

“Why? So, you can make a new one?” He said with some anger in his voice.

Zecora started to regret asking the question. “What, no. I am just asking. I don’t know how to make a time potion, if you remember I told you that the knowledge was lost. I am asking because I am curious, nothing more.”

He just stared at her and he then went back to picking berries. “I don’t know what you want me to say, I felt the bottle hit me, I then saw a light and the next thing I knew I was in a forest. I didn’t see princess Celestia or anyone ells. So yes, you can say it was a shock to me realizing that I have been transported four hundred year into the future, for me it was in a matter of a second.”

“Did you fell anything?”

He shook his head. “No.” Zecora didn’t know what to think. She was intrigued about the whole thing but at the same tome she didn’t want to push it, it couldn’t be easy for him.

When they had collected enough, the sun had almost set. “I think it best that we head back now, I don’t want to be in this forest after dark.” Blaze told Zecora while handing her the berries had pick.

“I am not going to argue with that.” She answered while putting away the berries.

They were about to leave when they heard noises in some bushes in front of them. “Get behind me.” Blaze told Zecora and she didn’t hesitate at all. It didn’t take long before two manticore came out of the bushes and they looked hungry. “This is not good.” He took and arm around Zecora. “Hang on.” Before Zecora could react, she saw the world move past her in an incredible speed and before she knew it, she was in front of her hut.

After Blaze let go of her, she had to looked around to see if she really had gotten home. “What just happened? One minute two manticore was about to eat us and now we are back my hut, how?”

“I brought us her.” Blaze told her in a clam voice.

“That’s not possible, no pegasus can move that fast.” She almost shouted it all, trying to comprehend what just happened.

“I can.”

Zecora just started at him not knowing if what just happened was real or not, she rubbed her face. “If you say so, just don’t do that with Twilight, she would probably end up in the hospital.” Blaze believe every word she said about Twilight. “Anyway, thank you for saving me from the those manticores, I can live another day.”

Blaze bowed. “It was nothing.” He got up. “Now, if you will excuse me, I’m going home to get some sleep.” With that said, he spread his wings and flew up in the sky.

Zecora just watch as Blaze disappeared into the sky and somehow, she blush. She shook her head. ‘No, I can’t be attracted to him, I just meet him.’ She decided to think about it the next day, right now she just wanted to go to bed. She opened the door and went in.
