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

Ponyville With a Rainbow

Ponyville With a Rainbow
November 7th, 2012

After that little visit, I continued my walk to Ponyville. The temperature has definitely increased over the time of the visit, so that's a plus. However, there was a minus as well. Along the path, I found more paw prints from the Timberwolves and there must've been a pack because the prints scattered all over the place.

"At least I only encountered one of them." I said to myself.

Now I was getting on edge again because it was still pretty early in the morning and the wolves may still be out. Therefore, I didn't stick around long and continued onwards to Ponyville. For a while, I kept on walking and the forest seemed to clear up more until eventually there was nothing but a few trees and open grass. That's when I spotted several buildings in the distance. I had found Ponyville.

I started to proceed quicker over towards the village and discovered a sign that read: 'Welcome to Ponyville. A village of harmony.' Man, it took two days, but i'm finally here. I came across a purple stone bridge that went over a river and the sunlight glistened in the clear water in small wavy motions.

At this point, the dirt paths have been replaced with grassy roads. When I mean by roads, I mean grass that is finely cut to form the characteristics of what a road would look like. Another thing I noticed is that no one was outside. Everybody else was probably still sleeping since it's still early in the morning, but hey, maybe i'll meet an early bird along the way.

I explored the area a little more and entered an open space that contained a red three story building. I checked around the building to see if anyone was there, but to no prevail. But I did find a banner attached to the railing of the second floor balcony than read: "Ponyville Town Hall."

"Where is everybody?" I asked, rhetorically.

As I searched the area for any ponies, I found all of these flags that were scattered throughout the area and a statue of a mare on the southside of the town square. I began to feel like I was going on a scavenger hunt for ponies rather than meeting them. Just when I felt like giving up, I heard a woosh sound above me. I looked up and saw something that was no damn eagle or hawk, it was a pony! I tried to get a better look, but it was too far up in the sky. I cupped my hands around my mouth and shouted: "HEY YOU!"

The pony stopped for a moment and looked around in the sky, trying to figure out where my voice came from. I decided to give it a little hint.

"DOWN HERE!" I shouted again.

The pony looked downwards and immediately caught sight of me. It took a moment, but it eventually started to slowly descend. As it got closer to me, I made out some very distinguishable features to it. It had a cyan coat and was just a tiny bit smaller than Applejack and Fluttershy. I guess that would make sense because of the whole wing to body ratio thing. But the most eye catching feature was its mane and tail; the pony had a rainbow mane and tail complete with red, yellow, orange, green, blue, and violet.

When the pony got to about 20 ft and was able to better look at me, its facial expression was the true definition of confusion. It had wide eyes and one eyebrow raised. The winged pony remained a distance away from me before she spoke.

"Did you just talk?" she asked in a raspy, guy-like voice, but still retaining femininity.

"Surprised?" I responded.

"Woah!" she exclaimed.

"The name's Caleb. What's yours?" I asked.

"Now wait a minute. What are you doing here in Ponyville? You causing trouble? If you are, you're gonna be sorry!" she said in a raised tone.

"What? No! Of course I wouldn't. What makes you think that?" I questioned.

"Maybe it's the fact that I haven't seen anything like you before." she responded. "What are you supposed to be?" she asked.

"Oh, so if you see something you've never seen before, you consider it bad? I wonder what you thought when you first saw your reflection." I insulted.

"Don't change the subject! Just answer the question." she demanded.

"Okay, okay, let's just start over and i'll explain myself before this escalates further." I proposed.

"Fine. Go ahead." she said.

"My name is Caleb and i'm a human. Basically a highly evolved ape for a scientific standpoint. I arrived here in this land about a day ago and I came here to look for others. That's all." I explained.

Rainbow brought her hoof up to her mouth and began to think.

"If you don't believe me, just ask Applejack and Fluttershy, they'll vouch for me." I provided.

"Hmmmm. Seems a bit fishy. Alright, I'll believe your story." she said.

"Good. Now what's your name?" I asked.

"Names Rainbow Dash. Fastest flier in Equestria." she introduced in a much more calmer tone.

"Nice to meet you, Rainbow Dash." I said back.

"Likewise." Rainbow said.

"So you claim to be the fastest flier, huh?" I asked.

"I don't claim, I am the fastest flier." Rainbow boasted.

"Let me see some proof. It would be pretty cool to see what you got." I said.

"Okay then, watch this." Rainbow accepted.

Rainbow Dash jerked the right side of her body back as if she was about to run and then....*ZOOM!*. Within half a second, Rainbow Dash had turned from a full figure to nothing but a tiny dot in the sky.

"How? That's impossible!" I exclaimed out loud.

Rainbow repeated the same action and came to a complete halt right in front of me like a bullet stopped in mid-air.

"I gotta admit, that was pretty impressive and awesome!" I complimented.

"Maybe it's because i'm so awesome myself." she said, slyly.

I slightly laughed to the self praise.

"I'm guessing you're into athletics. You have to be since you move as fast as a bullet." I said.

"You got that right! I've been training all my life to be accepted into the Wonderbolts." Rainbow informed.

"Wonderbolts? Is that supposed to be an advanced flying team or something?" I asked.

"Elite flying team to be exact. Only the best of the best can join and I plan on being one of those ponies." Rainbow said.

"Well, I wish you luck on becoming one of them." I said.

"Thanks. Y'know, you may not be as bad as I thought you were." Rainbow confessed.

"You see? All you needed to do was to know me better." I said.

"Sorry. It's a personality trait of mine." Rainbow said.

"It's all good." I said.

Rainbow then took a glance to the sky and looked at me again.

"Hey, it was nice talking to you, but I gotta finish busting clouds for the day before everyone gets up. Otherwise, the Cloudsdale Weather Center will be on my flank." Rainbow said.

"How exactly do you bust clouds?" I asked.

"It's simple. All you have to do is just give the cloud a good buck and it poofs away into thin air." Rainbow said.

"Huh. Never thought you could get rid of clouds like that. Looks like I have much to learn." I said.

"Heh, heh. Maybe you do." Rainbow teased.

"Yeah, yeah, yeah. But anyways, I better let you get back to your cloud busting." I said.

"Before you go, you said you met Fluttershy and Applejack, right?" Rainbow asked.

"Yes I did." I replied.

"Well what if I said that I have three other ponies you can meet." Rainbow suggested.

"I'm up for it." I said.

"Awesome. Alright, if you turn around and turn left a little and go that way continuously, you should see a building that looks like a miniature castle called Carousel Boutique. There you should find one of my friends, Rarity." Rainbow instructed.

"Got it." I said.

"Yeah, you might aswell face the drama queen herself now and just get it over with." Rainbow said.

"Ah, she's that kind of pony, huh?" I asked.

"Well, she's not a drama queen all the time, but just consider what I said a warning." Rainbow said.

"I'll keep it in mind." I said.

"So just to recap, you know where you're going?" Rainbow asked.

"Yep. I know." I replied.

"Awesome. Maybe i'll see you later and we can chill together." Rainbow said.

"Yeah, I'd like that." I said, happily.

"Cool beans. See ya later." Rainbow said.

"See ya." I replied as I walked away to Carousel Boutique.

"I wonder what Rainbow would say if I called her Skittles?" I thought to myself.
