Chapter 61: Winter Wrap Up

CHAPTER 61

After a whole days rest, and some emotional conversations with my friends and family, everything was finally back to normal. I hadn't seen hide nor hair of Omnius or Torrentican, but I knew one thing: I was going to hunt Torrentican down, and make him sorry the only way I know how. By very gruesome acts of violence.


"... And then we bring back the southern birds... Are you even listening?"


I snapped out of my deep thought, and shook my head to recover. "Erm... Sorry, I was thinking, and lost track of what you were saying..."


She giggled, and gave me a warm smile. "It's alright. It wasn't important. All you need to know about Winter Wrap Up is it's a lot of fun, and I know you'll love the singing."


I had completely forgotten about that. A look of worry shot across my face, and Dashie immediately picked up on it. She nuzzled my cheek and leaned on my side. "You'll do fine, love."


I sighed, and decided to worry about that obstacle when it presented itself.


I looked out the window, and saw Scoots running around outside. It still felt strange living in a cloud home, but I had somewhat adjusted. I let out a stressed sigh. Dashie gave me a seductive look.


"You know Kyle, if Winter Wrap Up stresses you out too much, I can help you relax when we get home with a nice massage..."


"I LOVE MY LIFE."

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Me and Dashie eventually took Scoots down to ground level to play with the rest of the Crusaders (After hearing about their recent plan, I warned them that gasoline and matches were not a good mixture) and headed off to start helping with the clean up.


"So... What am I going to have to do?" I asked.


"Well... You can help me and the rest of the pegasi with all the sky stuff, you can help with the animals, you can break the ice off of the water..."


"Wow. Lots of stuff to do."


"Yeah, I know. So, what do you want to do?"


"Well, it seems only right that I help you lot out, so I'll be with the pegasi."


Then, Twilight approached us, and she was wearing a multicolored vest.


"Oh, hello there you two! So, I assume you are both on the sky team?"


"Yep. So, the vests show who's doing what, right?" I looked around, seeing all sorts of ponies in different vests.


"Exactly. Here's yours, Rainbow Dash. And here you go Kyle."


I took off my jacket for a moment, throwing it on the ground. I saw the patch on the back of it where Rarity had fixed it after I was impaled. I cringed at the memory, and looked away. After putting on the vest, I slid the jacket back on, and adjusted my hat.


"Alright... So, what happens n-"


I heard somepony blow on a harmonica, to start the musical number.


"Omnius, I'm going to hurt you... SO BADLY."


I quickly tried to remember the lyrics Omnius had jotted down and had me memorize, and they slowly came back to me. Then, the music really started.


RAINBOW DASH:
Three months of winter coolness, and awesome holidays~

PINKIE PIE:
We've kept our hoovesies warm at home, time off from work to play~

APPLEJACK:
But the food we've stored is running out, and we can't grow in this cold

RARITY:
And even though I love my boots, this fashion's getting old~

KYLE:
Now it's time to welcome spring,
and all things fresh and green,
But it's also time to say goodbye,
It's winter we must clean

What do I do? I'm a man you see,
What do all the ponies do?
How can I fit in like this?
There's just too much to do!


PONIES:
Winter Wrap-Up, Winter Wrap-Up!
Let's finish our holiday cheer
Winter Wrap-Up, Winter Wrap-Up!
'Cause tomorrow Spring is here,
'Cause tomorrow Spring is here!

RAINBOW DASH:
Bringing home the southern birds,
A pegasus' job begins
And clearing all the gloomy skies
And let the sun shine in!
We move the clouds and we melt the white snow;
When the sun comes up, it's warmth and beauty will glow!

PONIES:
Winter Wrap-Up, Winter Wrap-Up!
Let's finish our holiday cheer
Winter Wrap-Up, Winter Wrap-Up!
'Cause tomorrow Spring is here
Winter Wrap-Up Winter Wrap-Up!

RARITY:
Little critters hibernate
Under the snow and ice.

FLUTTERSHY:
We wake up all the sleepyheads
So quietly and nice!

RARITY:
We help them gather up their food,
Fix their homes below;

FLUTTERSHY:
We welcome back the Southern birds

So their families can grow!

PONIES:

APPLEJACK:
No easy task to clear the ground,
Plant our tiny seeds.
With proper care and sunshine,
Everyone it feeds.
Apples, carrots, celery stalks
Colorful flowers, too!
We must work so very hard,
It's just so much to do!

PONIES:
Winter Wrap-Up, Winter Wrap-Up!
Let's finish our holiday cheer
Winter Wrap-Up, Winter Wrap-Up!
'Cause tomorrow Spring is here

KYLE:
This world is still strange and new but,
I'll try to earn my place,
And help the ones who've claimed my heart,
This challenge I will face.

How can I do this as a man,
and still help the pony way?
This is my home, so I must-
Do what I can today...
What I can today~


PONIES:
Winter Wrap-Up, Winter Wrap-Up!

'Cause tomorrow Spring is here~
Winter Wrap-Up, Winter Wrap-Up!

TWILIGHT SPARKLE:
'Cause tomorrow Spring is here~
'Cause tomorrow Spring is here~
'Cause tomorrow Spring is here!

When the music was over, some of the work had already been done. Omnius was sitting nearby, and I glared at him. He just put on his best troll face and waved. I sighed, and flew off with Dashie. We had to get the southern birds, and get them all into their respective nests.


"Well that was... Awkward."


Dashie gave me a peck on the cheek. "You did great." I felt my face heat up.


We flew quickly, to get done, and get home soon.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After we came back and got the birds sorted, I was exhausted. I also had marks all over my head from when a flock of birds attacked me. Right when I sat down, Pinkie was... Hanging in front of me? She was upside down... But how?


"She's Pinkie..."


"Now you can get that massage from Dashie when you two get home!" She grinned wildly.


My face burned red, as did Dashie's.


"HOW THE BLOODY HAY DID YOU KNOW THAT?" I glared at her. She just giggled.


AJ just broke out into laughter, and everypony else tried to hold it back. Twilight failed.


"Come on Dashie, before we're embarrassed anymore... Although I am looking forward to our 'personal time.'"


"What about Scoots?"


"She's staying with the Crusaders at AJ's tonight."


"Does she know that?"


I tried my best to stretch out my neck and imitate Engineer. "Nope."


Dashie snickered, then nuzzled my side. "I love you."


"Right back at'cha."


We flew off, but not before I heard a crash come from AJ's house, and the orange cow-pony just glared at me.


"Me: 1. AJ: 0."


What? Just because I'm a hero doesn't mean I don't like to poke fun at my friends every once in a while!
