Who would've thought that being at the wrong place at the wrong time would bring something so surreal.

C.A.M.A: Day Fifteen

C.A.M.A: Day Fifteen
December 21st, 2012

Not much has happened of the day, but things have been going good. I got my flash cards all finished for this unit, me and Night Hunter hang out in the rec room at night, play pool, ping-pong and i've begun doing some calisthenics to keep myself in shape since you don't get much exercise here. In my opinion, they should add a daily exercise unit to this program, but who knows, maybe one of the upcoming units will be exercise.

Aside from all of these upbringings, I'll admit that I still miss Twilight and Spike. Sure, I miss the other five, but i've only bonded with Twilight and Spike the most, so i've kinda got a bit of a strong attachment to them than the other five.

While I read up on the history of Equestria, I came across the whole story on how Equestria became a nation of earth, pegasi and unicorn ponies: Hearth's Warming. Ironically, Hearth's Warming lands on the same day as Christmas as well as the eve. Since I can't give Twilight and Spike a present, I thought it would be nice to write them a letter. It may seem like a long shot for Night Hunter, but if I keep the whole 'going to learn Equestrian history BS story' I told Spike, I could pull it off. After thinking about it, I headed to the classroom where Night Hunter sat at his desk.

"Hey, Hunter." I said.

"How are you, Caleb?" he replied.

"I'm doing great." I said.

"Glad to hear that. So what is it you wanted to say?" he asked.

"I've been thinking about it and I thought it would be nice to send a letter to certain somepony's I know." I said.

"Sssss, I don't know about that, Caleb." Night Hunter disagreed.

"Look, I told the most trustworthy pony and close friend that I was going up to do the C.A.M.A program." I admitted.

"YOU WHAT!?" Night Hunter boomed.

"Wait! Wait! This pony's name was Twilight Sparkle and she is a pupil of Princess Celestia. I know Twilight and she keeps her word on what she says." I claimed.

"I have heard of this Twilight Sparkle and what she did for Equestria.... okay fine, you can write a letter to her. But you were lucky to tell her only." Night Hunter said in a calmer tone.

"Night Hunter, I wouldn't tell anypony else except Twilight. I'm not that dumb." I said.

"Good. Now go, i'm busy at the moment." Night Hunter said.

"You got it." I said as I closed the door.

After heading back the bunks, I opened up to the back page of my notebook, folded it and began to write a letter

Dear Twilight Sparkle and Spike,

Since the holiday, Hearth's Warming is approaching, I thought it would be nice to send you this letter and tell you how i'm doing. Firstly, i've been doing great. Recently, i'm studying about the the whole story about the Crystal Empire and the evil unicorn that caused it to disappear, but I really don't want to bore you with a history lesson. Yes, Spike, i'm talking about you. Aside from studying, I really just wanted to let you guys know that I miss you dearly and that I can't wait to see you guys, Applejack, Fluttershy, Rarity, Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash again in March. And I also wish you guys a very happy Hearth's Warming, or as they say in my world, Merry Christmas. Please respond to this letter as soon as you can. And again, Happy Hearth's Warming, Twilight and Spike.

Sincerely, your dear simian friend, Caleb Barlow.

After finishing the letter, I tore it out of the notebook and folded it. I than walked back down to the classroom and knocked on the door.

"Yes?" Night Hunter replied from the other side.

"You got any envelopes in there I could use?" I asked.

"I do. Come in and I'll give you one." Night Hunter said.

I opened the door and Night Hunter levitated a letter into my hands.

"How am I going to mail this? Should I walk all the way to Canterlot?" I asked.

"No need for that. Just give it to one of the pegasus guards out front and they'll send it to the post office in Canterlot." Night Hunter said.

"Thanks." I said.

"Yep." he replied.

After writing the return address, destination address and all of that on the envelope, I walked out of the building and passed through the wall to the outside. It was now nighttime and some guards were watching the perimeter.

"Are any of you stallions a pegasus?" I asked.

A pegasus guard then flew down from the top of the wall barrier and landed behind me. I turned around quickly to the sudden thud.

"I would be, Sir Barlow." the guard replied.

"I need you to send this letter to postoffice in Canterlot city." I ordered.

"Yes, sir." he replied.

The guard grabbed the letter with his teeth and flew away towards Canterlot. I have to admit, Canterlot is a pretty nice looking city when it's all lit up for the holiday. After that, I headed back inside, poured myself a bowl of potato chips from the rec room, went back to the rec room and read the Equestrian history book. Y'know.... Equestria's history is pretty interesting and a little dark. I shit you not when I mentioned that the Crystal Empire vanished into thin air. That unicorn named Sombra somehow made it vanish somewhere up north where it's always snowy. But anyways, I pretty much read the book until it was time for bed.
