Chapter 10: Town and Parks

It took 30 minutes.

30 stinkin' minutes to teach these three former villains the way of human life.

But it worked.

When the trio got it down, I went inside with my two other friends to ask mom if we could walk around in town and maybe take a pit-stop by the park or a minor resteraunt.

Mom seemed fine with it, as long as I had my own cash. I did. I grabbed everything I could get and then left the house with my friends to inform the trio that we were good to go.

Although we knew how to get around the house without detection, we still had to figure out how to make it seem less weird that a random family was following us. We just settled on the fact that 'Angel' was a friend of ours, and we just happened to run into her family.

The park wasn't far, but it took longer than five minutes due to the directions we took. Josh had to remind Chrysalis, Tirek, and Cozy to hold off from crossing the street until the cars stopped for them.

Finally though, we arrived at the park. Luckily, there was nobody else there, so that cancels out the 'weird looks' bit. Sort of. There are still cars around, but I doubt anyone would walk or drive by. Chrysalis and Tirek took a bench while Cozy went out to play. My friends and I sat on another bench, but I settled on sitting in between them for good reason.

We all watched Cozy play a little bit and enjoy her freedom before Sam asked me a question.

"Why was Cozy evil?"

"Why are you asking me?" I said.

"Come on," Josh began. "You watch the show, you should know."

"Guys, listen... NOBODY in the MLP fandom knows her story!" I said. "She just suddenly showed up, and at some point, started committing evil deeds! No reason at all!"

"Then ask Chrysalis and Tirek," Sam said.

"Why me?" I asked.

"WE are NOT affiliated with YOUR fandom! We were basically brought into your issue when we came over today!" Sam said.

The dude had a point.

"Fine..." I muttered. "I don't want any of you to argue though."

"Bruh. You're RIGHT there!!!" Sam said.

"Just wanna be safe," I said. I got off the bench and went to the one Chrysalis and Tirek were at. Tirek was at the left s and Chrysalis was in the middle. Meaning the spot I sat in was on the right side of the bench.

"One question-" I began.

"Don't," Chrysalis interrupted. "Whether we know her backtstory or not, we can't tell you."

"Oh," I said.

We watched Cozy on the chair swing.

"She seems happy," I started. "Happy to be free. Not from stone or anything, but free from... herself."

"She is living like a normal filly," Tirek said. "And she seems happy that she saw the light when we got the chance."

I looked down.

"I need to be honest with you..." I started.

"What?" asked Chrysalis.

"Remember telling me the story of how you reformed? And I seemed very suspicious?"

"Yes..." Tirek said, unsure of where I was going.

"Well... I never thought that was how you changed. You see, for most of the people that love your show, they write these stories called 'fanfictions'. They center around many citizens of Equestria, but they never actually happened. When I saw you turn to stone, I wanted to find a fanfiction about you all reforming that I was satisfied with. I couldn't find much, so I did the most sensible thing I could: take matters into my own hands. So I wrote a fanfiction about Luster Dawn getting sent to reform you. I wrote another one too, but I can't remember it. I don't bother checking anyway, since I haven't checked on my stories for so long. Anyway, when you told me your story, every detail you said was incorporated into my writing. I thought an official COMIC or show would reform you. But no. My STORY showcased it instead. Anyway, I apologize for not telling you sooner."

I looked at Chrysalis and Tirek, who looked at each other. They then looked at me.

"You know... for telling us a DAY after we came here instead of a WEEK, we are less disappointed that some would make us out to be," Chrysalis said.

"Yeah. And think about it. You could have the ability to predict our future!" Tirek chimed in.

I chuckled.

"Yeah... it sounds sensible, but I don't know. Let me just get one thing straight: I LOVE to draw. A LOT! Sometimes, I would make myself out to be a HERO, someone who was assigned by JESUS HIMSELF to save the world! But even though I KNOW it won't happen, the fact that you are here makes me feel SLIGHTLY special and lucky. No. Not JUST me. My friends. The people who either find your show cringe or have never seen it. They seem to be warming up. For all I know, the three of you could change THEIR lives."

Tirek opened his mouth to speak, but then the sound of footsteps distracted him. Everyone that was on a bence looked forward as Cozy Glow advanced toward us.

"That little merry-go-round... are any of you willing to push me on it?" she asked.

Chrysalis, my two other friends, and I all looked at Tirek.

"Don't look at me!!" Tirek said. "I feel so strong and muscular, she could FLY off the dang thing. No, not just her. The WHOLE merry-go-round!"

I sighed.

"I guess I could do it..." I volunteered.

"Really?" Cozy asked.

"Sure, come on."

I got of the bench and went to the merry-go-round. Cozy got on the thing and gripped the handles. She looked at me.

"Just try to hang on, ok?"

Cozy nodded.

I grabbed another handle with all of my might and then started running as fast as I was able to.

I felt the merry-go-round increase speed as my own speed increased.

And despite the spinning, I could see the smile on Cozy Glow's face.

Not that fake one she made when manipulating others.

A real one.

And it warmed my heart.

Then, I let go of the merry-go-round.
