45. Out & About

Normally at the first sight of rain, people would run inside and close their windows and such. Well, to hell with that! I've been locked up for nearly three weeks and I am not going inside just because of a few drops of rain in the air...alright, maybe it's more than that but it doesn't matter. To feel the fresh air on my face once again, it was invigorating and calming.

"Come along, we shall take cover from this weather!" Luna shouted at me over the sound of the rain hitting the cobblestones.

"Are you kidding?! The rain isn't gonna stop me! I've waited three weeks for this and some stupid weather isn't going to ruin my day!" I ran forward and jumped in a large puddle, soaking my feet. "Come on, enjoy the rain!" I said with a smile.

Luna caught up to me - mane becoming slightly limp from the downpour. "We might catch a cold." I chuckled and threw my arms around her. "Although this will keep me warm."

I planted a kiss on her lips and breathed heavily. "And keep you warm I shall." I looked up and let the rain coat my face. I sighed a sigh of relief. Finally I was outside to enjoy my life as it used to be. "Come on. We'll take a walk back to the castle."

We began our trek through the empty streets of Canterlot, marvelling at the various knick-knacks of the shop displays. One particular shop took both mine and Luna's interest. It was closed but it didn't stop us from observing what lay in the shop window. I put an arm around her shoulder and pulled her close. "Just think...8 months from now and that'll be us."

She leant into me and sighed. "Our special day."

"It's gonna be awesome." I kissed her forehead slightly. "Although Shining's wedding is going to be great as well. Speaking of that, have they announced it yet?"

"A few ponies know but they're still keeping it lowkey. Captain Armor still doesn't want his sister to know about it. You can probably guess why."

I held back a laugh and thought about what would happen if Twilight tried to organise a wedding. "It'd be too perfect. Everything would have to be perfect for her or she'd stress out. I mean...just think if something were a minute off schedule she'd--"

My right hand spasmed for a second before I felt a tingling sensation. I looked at Luna who placed her hoof on my hand. "It's just the magic. The majority of it is gone but it there are still remnants of it. It'll stop soon." My hand stopped twitching and I smiled. "See? You'll be fine tomorrow."

I flexed my fingers rotated my wrist a few times to stop the tingling, which it did. "Hopefully that's the last of that." I brushed the water that had collected in my hair and shook my head.

"Are you alright? I know this magic situation isn't exactly good for you." Luna said with concern.

I knew it wasn't good but I wasn't upset at all. To be honest, I was happy. "I know but right now, I feel amazing and nothing can spoil that. You know, I never thought I'd do this but...I actually feel like doing something spontaneous." I walked to the middle of the street and readied myself. "I feel so good I might actually..."

"What are you doing?" Luna asked with a curious smile.

I looked up at the sky, breathed in and started doing something I'd never thought I'd do.

"I'm singing in the rain.
Just singing in the rain.
What a glorious feeling."

I jumped up onto a lampost and leant off it.

"I'm happy aga--"


"OW OW OW! Fucking...owwww...."

It just had to happen. The point where I gripped the lampost, my hand spasmed again...stupid gravity. Clutching my side, Luna rushed to me. "Owen! Are you alright?"

She helped me up and placed one of her soaking wings around me. "Yeah...I'm OK...maybe that's the last of it..." We carried on our walk and continued to the castle.

Luna pulled me close with her wing and grinned. "For what it's worth, your singing was lovely." I blushed at her statement and cleared my throat. "I'm serious. Maybe I should enroll you in the Canterlot Musical Group."

"You wouldn't dare." I said with a stare.

"Wouldn't I?" She tried to remain emotionless but ended up laughing. "But please my love, do consider it. Your voice would do wonders within that group." She gave me a look which would have given me a heart attack. I couldn't resist it.

"Alright, alright, just stop the look, please." I kissed her softly. "I'll think about it alright?" She nodded as a response. Soon enough, we arrived at the castle gates, soaked to the bone and looking rather cold. It was worth it. A couple of guards were stationed outside and they looked the same. "Evening fellas. How you doing?"

"Very cold Sir." one of them answered.

"My fellow guards." Luna said, stepping in front of them, earning a bow. "Please make yourselves comfortable inside the castle. There is no need for you to be stationed outside in this ghastly weather."

"Thank you Your Highness." they both replied.

Luna walked past them and into the castle. "Coming Owen?" she said with a smile.

I ascended the stairs and nodded to the guards. "Have a good evening--"


"OH MY GOD! I AM SO SORRY!" I couldn't believe it. My hand spasmed again and decided to swat the guard across the face. "Are you alright?!"

"What's going on here?" Luna asked as she walked back.

"Your consort hit me!" the stricken guard shouted.

"It was my spasm! Luna, help me here!" I pleaded to the night princess. Luna took the time to explain my situation and after many apologies, the guard accepted it and returned to the castle to seek some pain medication.

"I can't believe I just did that." I said under my breath.

"Do you know what the penalty is for attacking a member of the royal guard?" I shook my head. "Can be a maximum of life imprisonment."

"Seriously?!" I replied.

"Bet you're lucky to have me as a partner." she said with a smirk, walking off.

"Like you wouldn't fucking believe."

Author's Note:

Well, here it is. Kind of a joke chapter here but I needed to put something up. A couple of you wanted to see 'Singing in the Rain' and well...I delivered.

On another note, thank you to all of you who helped me last night - you seriously gave me the lift to get me out of my slump :pinkiehappy:
