Chapter 47: Family Life


Scootaloo was jumping around like she was on fire from sheer joy.


"Yeah. Now can ya' calm down, squirt?" Dashie was acting completely calm. I was freaking out.

"I'm a DAD... Holy frijoles... What have I gotten myself into?"

"DADDY!" Scootaloo jumped at me.

"Ah!" I caught her. We both started laughing. "Calm yourself, kiddo. Me and Da- Mommy need to talk." Dashie turned red when I said that. I put Scootaloo down, and she waited patiently.

Me and Dashie lowered our tones to a whisper.

"So... What do you suggest we do? I dunno about us living apart..."

"Then why don't you move in with me, Kyle? I have plenty of room, and I can get Derpy to lend me her shipment crew for all of your larger things."

"Oh... Ummm... I-I... But what about my recording equipment?"

"I've got an attic." She looked at me with a gleam in her eye. I wasn't winning this one.

"Alright... Yeah. I can make a good bit of money selling my house too. I'd better get home and start packing... Hey, Scoots, wanna help?"

"Sure, Dad!"

I felt my heart jump when she said that... Dad... I like it.


Me and Scoots walked all around my house, packing everything into boxes. I only had about three boxes of things so far. I never was one for decoration. Or furniture.

"Wow... I can't believe I'm going to get to live with you and Rainbow Dash..."

"Yeah, well... Be thankful, Scoots. Everything has value, and family is priceless."


We packed up the last box, and hauled it outside to the crew that Dashie had Derpy bring.

"Here's the last one. Be careful with it."

The strong looking pegasus nodded, and he flew off with the rest of the team. Now we just needed to move my recording equipment.

"Hey, Dad?" That was going to take some getting used to...


"Can we go home now?"

I smiled and nodded. I kneeled down, and she climbed onto my shoulders. I would have to have Dashie teach her to fly.



"Onwards and upwards, allons-y!"


I landed at Dashie's doorstep, and Scoots jumped down to the "Ground" of the cloud.

"Wow... I've never been up on the clouds before!"

"Really? Well, here you go then."

Scoots ran inside, and Dashie walked out the door, and leaned on me.

"So... We're really doing this, aren't we?"

I put my hand on top of her head. "Yeah. We need to. It's the right thing to do... And besides, it'll be fun."

"Well, I'm glad we're raising her together."

"Me too."

Then, we heard a crashing noise, followed by a gasp.

"Oops..." Scoots stepped out of the door, and smiled sheepishly.

"What was that...?"

"I knocked over a mirror."

"Kyle...?" Dashie looked to me, seeming a bit angry.

"I'll get the glue..."
