Meet Zephyr, High school student in his Freshman year moves and transfers from Appleloosa high school to Canterlot High school. The reason? His parents had to transfer him to live at his own apartment because they're working everyday, only to have the weekend off. Feeling relieved that he moved away from his problems, he immediately meets up with Pinkie and the others making him feel more accepted. Though something is eating him up when he meets up with Sunset Shimmer.

(This is set in Equestria Girls and Rainbow Rocks. So all of them are human.)

My parents did what?!

You know living in Appleloosa isn't so bad. I mean sure it is a dried up place, but the apples, and cherries are to die for in this town. Even though these are the only type of food to eat to where everything is turned to a pie, pastry or even a drink. The school is nice and the teachers are decent to where I can understand what they're saying in calculus and other subjects. The classmates, when they want to be, are wonderful people. Even the bullies give me a fighting chance once a week, because I am considered as a geek in my whole class. With spring break here I can finally relax at my parents house away from the academic semester and annoying people. Though all of this relaxation was interrupted with one phone call from my parents that would of blew me out to the moon.

"Hello?" I asked.

"Hi! Zephyr it's mom, I have some great news!" She said with excitement in her tone.

I groaned, 'This can't be good.' I thought. I didn't like my parents so called 'news' because it would end up a disaster for me. This happened once a month and there are several example of how their 'news' can make my life miserable. On my tenth birthday, my dad got some news that there was a discount on the cake to serve in the party, but little did he know that the cake was a hallow cardboard box with icing on it. This made me lose some of my gained friends and I was angry with them for the rest of the day. First semester as a 6th grader in middle school; I was in my first class and forgot to bring my packed lunch. Though I had money to get lunch on that period, my mom decides to enter the class room in the middle of a lesson. Calls out my name, gives me my lunch and pecks my cheek making me the embarrassment of the whole class. Those were alright in the past and I forgave them overall because my mom and dad are busy people. Dad is part of the military, who is sent to many cities to do certain jobs and my mother is a business women working to advance technology for the world.

"What's wrong Zephyr? Got a stomach ache?" Mom asked.

I am a Freshman in High school, third best in my class when it came to grades and not very popular with anybody. I was considered a joke because of my parents and don't get me wrong their nice people, but when I make a mistake they go 'baby parenting' on me. You know, the ones who basically just treat you like a child and I HATE it. I was nicknamed the 'Parent Baby' in my school which I never liked. I sigh inwardly and continued the conversation with mom.

"No it's nothing, what's the big news?" I said air quoting with my hands.

"I just got a call from Dr. OcSid, who is the main company up in the Crystal Empire that makes up-to-date technology, just hired me because of my achievement of making the first 16 Gigabyte memory card and Ram for a computer." She explains.

"Wow!" My face is in awe, "That is great Mom!"

"They also offered an apartment at Canterlot for you to stay at and already filled out the transfer papers for you to move!" Mom said.

I nearly had a heart attack, "W-What?!" I grabbed the available counter to support myself on what I was hearing.

Mom thought the 'what' was me getting excited about the situation and continued, "I know! It is exciting to see you moving from Appleloosa and Apple High to Canterlot and their high school! Most of all their giving you the apartment!"

I stood there silent; I am moving to Canterlot and there is nothing I can do until I graduate high school to get out of it. What can I do? Last time I said no to their news I got punished in a weird way; it was weird punishment of writing on a piece of paper and filling it with the same sentence: 'I will never say no to my parents again.' This was when I was fourteen and now I was wondering if I should risk saying no to mom over the phone.

"Zephyr?" Mom asked.

I sighed, "Sorry just a little tired is all. Anything else you want to mention?"

"You leave to Canterlot tomorrow." She said.

I lightly fell to my knees without much noise so my mom couldn't hear me over the phone, "Alright I guess I will start packing my belongings then?" I stated.

"Oh! This is so exciting! I'll meet you at the Canterlot station tomorrow afternoon, your ticket should be on it's way through priority mail. I need to go, my previous boos wants to throw me a celebration. Bye Honey!" She said hanging up.

I put the phone up back on it's stand and my rage was building up from the inside. My spring break is going to be cut short because I was moving to a different city and a major one at that. I clench both of my hands into fists and threw them in the air as I yelled a tremendous roar, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!" I didn't care who heard my yell, I just wanted to make sure that my feelings of the situation I was going through can somehow reach my parents.

-The next morning-

My internal alarm clock woke me up ten minutes before my real alarm clock goes off at 6:30 am. I gained this double edge sword from my Dad because he wanted me to go to the military in case I didn't have any other career. It's a double edge sword because one it works for me when I sleep around eight to nine at night, but works against me when I get to sleep around eleven or midnight, then I wouldn't have enough sleep. Though with yesterday getting me down, I finally got over what my parents said and looked at the positives. One, it would be a new fresh slate of people in a school; two, I wouldn't see anybody in my old school, especially the bullies, to show up at Canterlot anytime soon and three, I can finally look for that destined girl to become my girlfriend.

After I had my breakfast; I got dressed, grabbed my packed suit case and carry on, and headed out to the train station. It was still early in the morning around seven and the ticket says that the train will leave at eight. I still had time, but I lived close to the orchard and sometimes it took me awhile to get into town. I decided to pick up the pace towards town so I can have a quick rest at the station bench. 'Hopefully I won't run into anybody... Why did I just jinx myself?' I thought.

Alright I guess I didn't jinx myself because I have to say it out loud in order to happen, because I made it to the station without any fuss. I whip out the ticket that was given to me by the mailman and held it close to my torso. Then I heard the train whistle from the distance that made me jump a bit. I don't have a fear of trains, but anything that just pops up in front of me just scares the living hell out of me. Let's hope I can get that fear out or at least tame it to where I don't get scared every time.

"All aboard!" Shouted the conductor.

I sigh as I went inside the train that didn't get a repaint. It still looked like a little girls toy, but one that can fit humans and I wonder if this was a joke that became permanent or that the makers lost some sort of bet. I really don't know, but what really surprised me is that the whole country accepted this contraption as it is. I try not to think about it and I took my assigned seat which was my lucky number in a set of three, 777. I set aside my suit case in the shelf above, and put my bag on the empty seat. I see the people get into their seats and I look at my empty seat in dissatisfied look. 'Looks like they reserved the ticket for two seats than one... Again.' I thought. This happened last time when my Dad invited me to Las Vegas because he was tied to his work. the trip was pretty good and I had no complaints except there was no one to talk to while I was sitting there doing nothing. I sigh and put on my ear phones on and listen to some music as the train slowly headed out the station. 'Shadows fill an empty heart, As love is fading, From all the things that we are, But are not saying. Can we see beyond the stars, And make it to the dawn?' The Ticket Master asked for my ticket and I handed it to him. After a quick scan, he left my area and the song continued. 'Change the colors of the sky. And open up to, The ways you made me feel alive, The ways I loved you. For all the things that never died, To make it through the night, Love will find you.'

I scoff at that and turned off my music player to only lay back to catch up on some sleep I lost from last night. 'Let's hope this school is at least decent.' I thought.

-Sunset Shimmer's Point of view-

I put my book, that I contact Twilight with, into my backpack to get ready for Pinkie's slumber party. She did multiple slumber parties before, but this one was weird. Well if you look at it this way, she is 'sensing' something is going to happen. I look at the mirror for a moment and my looks haven't changed, but my personality has changed drastically. I was a she demon bent on getting Twilight's crown, but I learned from my mistakes and now I am with my new friends. Applejack, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Pinkie and even Twilight became my true friends. After a the dazzlings incident, the students were now accepting me for who I was and now I feel I have been reborn. Like a phoenix somehow, but it made sense because I didn't care about the past only the future. I snap out of my trance and felt my phone buzzing instead of the book.

I answered it, "Hey Pinkie, whats up?"

"Sunset! Where are you?! The slumber party is going to start soon!" Pinkie said.

I chuckled, "I am just packing up my pajama's and getting a few snacks. Are the others there?"

"We're here sugarcube just get here soon, Pinkie's getting twitchy." Applejack shouted over Pinkie.

"Twitchy?" I asked.

"REALLY TWITCHY!!!!" Pinkie shouted.

"Um... Alright I'll be there soon." I said.

Rainbow spoke up, "You better hurry soon, she is trying to get to the cider!"

"Cider!-" The phone cut off when Pinkie said that making me raise an eyebrow.

I sigh as I put my phone away and look at my personal features. I have definitely grew a few inches in tallness and in cleavage, but my hips were still slim. I definitely need to get a different bra because this one I am wearing right now is digging into my skin. I definitely didn't have this kind of problem in Equestria, but at least I didn't have to go through heat cycles. Again I shook my head to not think about Equestria and tried to focus on what was happening now. I put my pajamas in my pack with a few snacks a side and headed out the door, locking it behind me. I walk down the flight of stairs away from the apartment complex and headed towards Pinkie's.

I knock on Pinkie's door and Rainbow answers it. Before I could say anything, she pulls me in and drags me towards Pinkie's room. Inside her room, she was tied onto a chair twitching like crazy. Fluttershy was against the corner unsure about the situation, Applejack just finished tying Pinkie, Rainbow was lying on the couch reading Daring Do, Rarity was looking at the mirror adjusting her hair until she saw me.

"Oh! I am so glad you can make it darling." Rarity said to me, but looked at Pinkie and continued, "Pinkie has been like this all day since she invited us to the slumber party."

"She just won't tell us what is wrong unti-" Applejack was interrupted.

"You show up." Rainbow said as she was lying on Pinkie's bed.

"What does Pinkie want with me?" I asked.

"I AM SO GLAD YOU CAME!!!" Pinkie shouted nearly breaking her own chair. Her hair, eyebrows, eyes, arms, legs and even her clothes were twitching. Twilight did say that Pinkie was really related to the one in Equestria. Though Applejack and the others heeded on her twitching predictions.

"What did you want to tell her sugarcube?" Applejack says putting her hand on my shoulder.

Pinkie takes in a deep breath and says it really fast, "Somebody is going to show up to transfer at Canterlot high when spring break is over and we're going to become friends with him!"

Her bodily twitches sudden stopped and she sighed in relief, "Oh wow... That was a strange twitch." Fluttershy said.

"You said it. I never heard of that one before." Rainbow says.

"Whew!" Pinkie said untying herself and getting up, "For some reason, my lips were sealed until Sunset shows up."

"Maybe it was meant for her?" Rarity said.

"I don't know, but listen ya'll." Everyone was looking at Applejack, "If Pinkie says it is going to happen then probably at the end of spring break we will welcome this so called transfer student."

"How much do you want to bet that there won't be any transfer student?" Rainbow asked.

"Pinkie has been correct every single time, besides I don't mind having another friend." Fluttershy said.

"If I am right you get no cider for the season." Applejack said.

"What?!" Rainbow said, but calmed down, "I am not betting that all I am just saying, we technically don't have a friend who is a guy."

"Uh... We have Flash as a friend." I said.

"Enough!" Pinkie shouted, "Let's not argue and let's have another round of Card Against Humanity!"

The rest of just groan in disbelief because the last game ended terribly, but I smiled, "Alright I'm game."

"If Sunset is going then I am too." Rainbow stated.

"Hang on, I ain't letting you get off that easily Dash." Applejack commented.

Rarity sighed, "Fine, but only one round."

"I'll join in too." Fluttershy said.

We all gathered up around the carpet and got ourselves ready for another round of the horrible game. Though one thing did still linger in my mind, who was this mysterious transfer student and why did Pinkie have to wait to tell me, but no her friends?

"Zephyr!" Mom says hugging me tightly, "It's been so long since I saw you."

"M-Mom... I need to breathe!" I try to say under my breath.

"Oh." she said releasing me, "Sorry."

I took a deep breath, "Anyway, I have to ask you something."

"What is it sweetie?"

I mentally flinched at what she said and thought, 'Go ahead, tell her that she ruined your life by moving to another school between semesters. Tell her and make her feel miserable.' I shook my head inwardly and sighed.

"What are we going to do about the stuff at Appleloosa?" I asked feeling glum about not telling my mom what I felt.

Mom thought I was glum about the furniture and items I couldn't take with me and said, "Your dad is going to take care of it. He is going to get rid of some stuff that we don't need and send the ones to your apartment."

I nodded, "Could we get going? I am pretty tired." I stretched.

The two of us begin walking towards the parking lot where there was a limo waiting at the pick up area. My jaw dropped, as my mother enters the limo without any consent.

"Come on in sweetie." Mom said waving her hand in.

I gulped and entered the limo very cautiously, "Who hired you again?"

"Dr. OcSid hired me, do you know who he is?" She asked.

"Refresh my memory in case I meet him?" I asked sheepishly.

The limo started to move and I looked out the window when Mom explained who Dr. OcSid was. He is a billionaire who invented the very first operating system for a computer, invented wireless and invented many products that got this world to accelerate to the future. He currently owns OcSid Industries where the best minds, or geeks, improve the performance of their product. Mom made a memory card and Ram to 16 Gigabytes, which is a big deal. A 16 Gig memory unit that we have now is the size of a hard disk drive, so this is what my mother achieved hence why were both in a limo heading towards my new apartment.

When Mom finished her eyes perk up, "Oh! There's the school!"

I look to my right and saw Canterlot High School, it was bigger than my old school and it certainly had a huge campus. There was a statue of a horse on it's hind legs and below it was mirrors reflecting the limo as we passed by.

"It looks nice." I said.

"I hope this doesn't make you feel bad about you leaving Appleloosa." Mom said putting her hand on my shoulder.

I sigh, "It's fine." 'I couldn't make any friends anyway.' I thought.

The limo stops and I was surprised that the 'apartment' was a complex apartment. It had eight total apartments at three stories tall, I stepped out when I heard my Mom getting something from the driver. I get my bags out the limo and look up at the apartment. It was around 3:00 pm and mother handed out the keys.

"Your room is 304, keep this key on your person at all times." She said placing the key in my hands.

I clenched the key in a fist, "Alright let's check it out an have some dinner."

-Sunset's point of view-

"Pinkie, please no more rounds." Applejack pleaded.

"Darling, I am mentally exhausted." Rarity commented.

"I am all laughed out." Rainbow said.

"Alright you heard them, time to put them away and let's eat some dinner." I said.

Pinkie crossed her arms, "Fine. What can we have to eat?"

"Pizza." We said in unison.

We all chuckled away, but Fluttershy interrupted, "Um... Isn't the pizza delivery guy's car broken down?"

"Oh that is right, somebody has to get the pizza by foot." Pinkie said.

"I'll go as long as I am not paying." I said.

Pinkie grabbed a wad of cash out of her hair which made me raise an eyebrow, "Is the exact change here?"

She shook her head furiously and coins flew out of her hair landing into her palm, "Here you go. Two Cheese and vegetable special pizza!"

Again I try not to question it, "I'll be back soon."

Before I could leave I heard Pinkie say something I made me glad I didn't want to go through the experience, "Let's play Monopoly!" I quickly head out the door as I hear a collective number of groans. I grab my phone and open the pizzeria's app to order the specific pizzas as I head towards the pizzeria.

-Zephyr's point of view-

I told mom that I was in the mood for pizza and she said it would be alright because we haven't had it in awhile. We decide to leave the apartment, which was slightly bigger than the the house I was in before, and head to the pizza place here in the city. The limo was causing heads to turn towards the limo which made me really uncomfortable. The limo parked in the lot and I quickly stepped out of it to get into the building fast. I didn't know what my mom said before I headed inside, but I did not want to get embarrassed.

Once I was inside, the aroma of warm pizza filled the air, which made my stomach growl. If I wanted, I could buy my own pizza, but I spent my allowance already on my 'last supper' in Appleloosa. I hear the door open and mother grabbed my shoulder.

"Zephyr, why did you leave the limo so fast?" She said.

"Um... I needed to use the bathroom fast?" I said sheepishly.

She nodded and looks at the menu, "What kind of pizza do you want?"

I looked at the menu that peaked my interest, "I think the vegetable special is in order."

"Alright, my little vegetarian." She pinches my cheek.

I flinch and stepped back as she giggles; luckily there wasn't anyone sitting on the tables, and the employees were oblivious of what happened. Though I still felt my face get hot as my mother orders the pizza's, but I hear the door open behind me. When my eyes set upon this person, my heart melted. This girl, who has red hair with yellow highlights, wearing a leather jacket under a red shirt, to compliment the shirt was a skirt with a sun pattern and to top it off she was wearing black boots. My heart was beating continuously and I couldn't pinpoint what it was. I noticed that she was looking at me and heading my direction. I didn't know what to say, but she passed me to wait in line to order pizza.

"I ordered two cheese and one vegetable pizza under the name The Rainbooms." She said.

Her voice made my ears quiver in delight. She looks beautiful and her voice makes my ear drums want to explode. Though it was cut short when the pizzas were handed to her and she made her way out the door. I tried to say something to her, but nothing could come out of my stunned vocal cords. When the door closed, she was gone. I felt my bodily state return to normal and I sigh, but someone tapped my shoulder.

"GAH!" I jumped away who tapped me.

Mom giggled, "Zephyr? You feeling alright? You seem out of it."

I shook my head, "I think I am getting a little tired from all the excitement." I lied.

Mom and I head to the nearest booth, by the window, to have our pizza. As I ate my pizza I look out the window and thinking through my head. 'Who was that girl and why did I act that way?' I thought. Then another question popped in my head, 'Who are The Rainbooms?'

-Sunset's point of view-

I finally made it back to Pinkie's when I hear some bickering. I put the pizza's on the counter in the kitchen and head to the argument. In the living room, Rainbow was arguing with Applejack about how Pinkie is cheating in monopoly. Rarity and Fluttershy were talking amongst themselves while their waiting for the argument to cool over it seems.

"Pinkie has to be cheating! She got both Board walk and Park Place in the second round. She even has hotels on them in the third round!" She exclaims.

"I am telling you that she isn't cheating because we all saw her that she played fair. Besides, you're just angry because you got bankrupt at the end of your turn." She smirked.

I sigh, "Pizza's here." I said.

"PIZZA!" Pinkie shouted.

In a quick succession, she neatly packs up all the monopoly items into the box and runs to the kitchen. Rarity, Fluttershy, Rainbow and Applejack rush after Pinkie so they can get their slice. I follow them and grabbed my slice of vegetarian pizza.

"Was there anything interesting at the pizzeria?" Rarity asked.

I shrugged, "Nobody was inside the restaurant and it was the same." I lied.

Applejack glimpses at me, but doesn't say anything.

"I tell you that pizzeria is going to shut down because it is only surviving on deliveries." Rainbow said stuffing her face.

Rarity scoffs at her display of eating while I took a bite of the vegetable pizza. The taste is delightful, but something else filled my head... That boy who was staring at me at the pizza place; I haven't seen him before in this town and he... Looked handsome. He had glasses, slightly shorter than me, brown hair with light brown highlights, slightly muscle toned, red shirt, and blue jeans. My heart was in ecstasy when my mind was thinking about him. I felt my face getting hot and everybody was silent.

"Um... Sunset? Are you feeling alright?" Fluttershy asked.

I shook my head, "Yes, it has been a long day for me it seems."

Applejack raised an eyebrow, but continued to eat her slice.

Rarity sighed, "I know the feeling darling, but tonight is the night to relax and let the worry's flow away."

I nodded, "I guess you're right. Anyone up for a game of Super Smash Brothers?"

Everyone in unison said, "Count me in."

I smiled, but my mind still lingered about the boy who was in the pizzeria. 'Who was that boy and why did I felt like I was in heat when I was around him?' I thought.

-Zephyr's point of view-

I hated when I had to move away from Appleloosa, but I think something changed my mind. This is something that turned into a somebody and this person happens to be a girl. A gorgeous teen who looks my age, has features that stole my heart and most of all, I don't even know her name. This pondered my mind for some time, the whole 'love at first sight' subject wasn't real, but how can I explain why I felt this way? Though I know this, my English teachers would be eating their hearts out if I said this to them. They were Shakespeare enthusiasts rather than a hard core fan when the subject about one of his stories came into question. Hence why I am trying to think this 'love at first sight' through my mind and heart.

All of this thinking led my head to turn a few gears and overall, I got a headache. Mom dropped me off at my apartment and told me that she will be here with Dad in about half a month. Which kind of surprised my beliefs because they never really have any time to spend with me when they were at work. This lead to me to believe that they were never going to meet up and spend time with me because their work time schedules will clash. Another example is when my twelfth birthday party came and I was all alone; Mom and Dad did promise me that they will show up to set up the party so I could just send invitations to my.... Friends. Which I didn't have any and when my party came, I silently wept on the table. No friends, no siblings (I was the only child), and most of all no family came to my party. Being a preteen at the time, I still had a hard time understanding why my parents were so busy. It was that day that I had learned how hard life was and there was nothing I could do to stop it.

"Zephyr?" Mom asked.

I internally slapped myself out of memory lane and spoke, "Y-Yeah?" I choked.

"You're crying... Are you sure you're alright?" She asked.

I was so deep into my memories that it made me stream tears down my cheeks. 'You knuckle head, you're letting your feelings get into this!' I shouted internally. Not wanting to make Mom concerned I wiped the tears off with my forearm, "I am fine, Mom, I am just so happy that we'll be together again." I lied.

She smiled, "Oh! Now that I think about it; it has been awhile since we have been together as a family."

"Yeah, it has been awhile. Definitely awhile." I said.

Mom looks at the time on her watch and clicks her tongue, "I need to go honey. I have to catch this train."

I waved at her while I turned to face the apartment complex, "Don't let me wait you up on your time schedule. You're a important person working with Dr. OcSid. I'll see you next time."

I didn't hear what Mom said, but all I heard was the limo driving away as I headed to the flight of stairs. The Apartment Complex is three stories tall with four apartments on each floor; bottom floor was 100-104, second floor was 200-204 and repeat for the third floor. I grabbed my key from my pocket when I approached the room 304 and saw my neighbors name next to 303, it was a last name saying 'Shimmer'. It was either a women or a big muscle man is next to me which didn't bother me, just as long as they're friendly. I unlock the door, enter the Apartment that I was going to live in when I became a legal adult.

The Apartment itself is an open concept type of home, the living room was to my right and across from the front door was a kitchen with an Island/breakfast bar, and to the left was the hallway leading to the bathroom and one bedroom. The whole entire place is bigger than the last house I was at. The Living room had installed thirty inch Television, with a black leather four seat couch waiting to be sat on, the Kitchen has white granite counter tops with the finest appliances installed (Microwave, Fridge, Dishwasher, Sink, installed coffee maker and others), and most of all the floors were hard wood.

In my mind, I thought this place was great, it was better than the other house altogether, but there was a small issue. Me. I felt small in this apartment and the counter tops were standing at my belly button. Other than that issue, I had no other problems. I lock the door behind me then head to the kitchen and tried to reach for the glass cup, but no dice. I opened one of the drawers, stood on top of it and quickly grabbed what I desired, a glass of water.

-Sunset's point of view-

It was the middle of the night and I felt cold sweat sliding on my face. It wasn't hot or too cold, it was something else... For some reason I just can't stop thinking about that boy at the Pizzeria. Every time I closed my eyes, I could see him and it bothered me. Not in an annoying way, but I just wanted to get some sleep. I sigh in defeat as I slowly slid out of the sleeping bag and crept over my sleeping friends thinking, 'I need a drink of water.'

I closed Pinkie's door behind me and made my way to the familiar kitchen. The light above the island reminded me about that conversation I had with Twilight when she was trying to figure out a counter-spell against the Dazzlings. I reached up into the cabinet for a cup, but got a confetti cannon fire upon my face. The familiar squeaking noise startled me, making my body go backwards, but someone caught me before I fell to the ground.

"Whoa there sugarcube!" A familiar farmer voice said pulling me back to my feet.

"Thanks Applejack." I said grabbing the plastic cup in the shelf. Though when I turned around she had her arms crossed and looked a bit serious. I didn't think of anything about the situation as I filled up my cup at the sink.

Then she spoke, "Sunset, I know we're friends, but you're hiding something aren't you?" I froze. I knew she was the Element of Honesty, but I never thought it would work here. My heart quickens for several reasons: thinking about the boy I have a crush on, and getting to be honest with one of my friends who caught me when lying.

Despite all of it, I sigh in defeat, "I can't hide from the Element of Honesty, can I?"

She nods, "Eeyup."

"What would you like to know?"

"What really happened at the Pizzeria."

I bit my lip, "I wasn't the only one in the Pizzeria and I have found a boy who is very..." I took a deep breath, "Who is very handsome... I don't even know his name, and every time I think about him, my heart tightens... I just don't know what is wrong with me." I stated leaning against the island while taking a drink of water.

"Sugarcube, why didn't you say so? We're your friends and if you have any issues you can talk to us." She stated, but continued, "Anyway, who is the lucky guy? Does he attend Canterlot High?"

I shook my head, "I haven't talked to him, though he looks like my age, but he looked like he was new in town.... I did see a limo outside the Pizzeria."

Applejack slightly put her hand on her temple and rubbed it, "It's that bad isn't it... Wait! He must be the new Transfer-!"

I covered Applejack's mouth, "Shh! You'll wake up everybody."

She nodded and I released her mouth, "Sorry, I overreacted back there."

I landed my hand on her shoulder, "It's alright. I feel a lot better talking about my problems and I think it's time for me to get back to sleep." Applejack yawned and nodded at the same time as she headed back to Pinkie's room, but I continued, "Just make sure you keep this to yourself until I figure out things."

"You can count on me sugarcube." She said heading out the kitchen.

I finish my water and cleared my mind from today. 'I need to know more about this boy in order to come to a solution.' I thought, but the images of him catching me into his arms and about to kiss my lips... I shook my head. "I need to know... Soon."

-Zephyr's point of view-

For the next three days, I did some planning, and reviewing of what my classes had gone through the past quarter before transferring to the new School. Mom talked to the Principal of the school, named Celestia, got all of the course work I needed to get finished and it was pretty simple. The majority of the assignments were worksheets of the chapters and some extra credit on the side. After those were finished, I did some research about the school and it's mascot. It was a wondercolt which reminded me about the soccer match we had against my old school, Dusty Buffaloes I believe they were called. The more I forget about Appeloosa, I will benefit from hinting to my new classmates that I miss my old place, but in reality I don't.

I finished the homework, researched and reviewed the school as I day dreamed throughout the afternoon. Majority of those dreams were about that girl that I saw at the Pizzeria and they were so dirty that I think I should go to dream jail for a day. It is the typical kind of sexual content that I was imagining and I had some shame about it. For one, I don't even know this girl and second it made me feel guilty. What is the one thing that will get me out of this guilt? Get out of the house... Er... Apartment to get some fresh air and to get groceries for the kitchen.

I got myself ready and was mentally checking what I needed to do for today when I get out. One, go to the bank; two, go to the grocery store; three, go to the clothing store for some new attire; and four, head back home to get ready for the weekend. I slip on my sneakers, put on my windbreaker, and locked the door behind me as I headed out. Something caught my eye, it was the neighbor, I didn't see him/her, but I did see the door closed. I looked at the time and it was around ten in the morning, maybe I'll get the neighbor some of fresh baked pie as a gift of friendship? 'Now I am starting to think like mom.' I mentally face palmed, but continued, 'Though it wouldn't be a bad idea.' I walked down the flight of stairs and headed to the bank which was very close to the school.

I withdrew around one hundred fifty dollars which I put into my wallet and headed towards the grocery store. To my amazement, I found out this big city had everything close by and it was fantastic. The bank and grocery store were on the same street, the clothing store was close to the cafe and the clothing store led to a park that leads all the way back to the apartment complex. 'A very convenient town with simple ways of getting around.' I thought.

I enter the grocery store and took it all in. The lights were very bright, there was barely anybody inside which made me comfortable, and the sounds of items being scanned echoed in the air. I picked up my basket as I headed towards the fruit and vegetable aisle. There were barely any more fruits or vegetables other than Apples or cherries at Appleloosa, and it was a huge relief that there was at least a dedicated fruit and vegetable aisle. I picked up celery, mangoes, carrots, peaches, and oranges without a care in the world. Though I had a hunch that someone was watching me.

"Hi!" Said a loud pitch voice.

"GAH!" I jumped out of my skin and turned around to see who was right behind me. I saw a pink haired girl who wore a blue jacket and a purplish skirt, which had three different color balloons, complimenting her white shirt.

She giggled when I got my feet back on the ground, "GAH! Yourself!"

"Who are you?" I asked catching my breath, but I blinked and she was in front of my face.

"I'm Pinkie Pie!" She said, but continued, "Are you new here? What's your name? Where are you from? Most of all, how are you doing today?!" I realized that her talking was echoing through the entire empty aisles.

I recollect my thoughts, "I'm Zephyr, I just moved in yesterday and I'm doing fine... Just getting groceries." I lifted the basket to show Pinkie.

She gasped, "You're the Transfer Student!!!!" Without a word she just sprints away leaving me with a permanent raised eyebrow.

"Weird...." I said aloud, but I shrug it off and continued to get the essentials that will last me for the whole month.

After purchasing the items, I glance at my receipt:

6 pound mangoes $0.13 $0.78

Subtotal $6.62
Tax 5.00% $0.33
Total $6.95

'Taxes seem to be going up these days.' I thought, stuffing the receipt in my pocket. The news has been telling the people lately that the military in Crystal City is increasing, which is causing some taxes to be raised. There is no reaction to society... Yet... Also, this didn't matter to me because my parents are being paid the maximum wage and I am just enjoying the allowances that they're giving to me. Now that I think about it, my bank account did increase by one hundred dollars. Must be Mom's new job.

I walked out the Grocery store and took in the fresh air. The sky was getting a little cloudy and in the far distance, to my right, is this cluster of dark clouds. I sighed, 'Need to go to the clothing department, get myself clothing and an umbrella.' I mentally put into my list of things to do. I walked across the street, but my nose caught the scent of sugary pastries.

Looking to my left, I saw a store named Sugarcube corner and it reminded me to get the greetings gift to my neighbor. The store itself was just connected to a building, where the people who bought the place would live in the second floor of it. I decided to get inside to get what I wanted and to get to the clothing store, with the storm heading this way.

Inside, there were people that filled the booths and were talking amongst one another. I got to the counter and behind the cash register was a woman with pink hair, that looked like frosting, wearing a yellow shirt and white apron. I looked at the name tag and it said 'Mrs. Cake'

"What would you like dear?" She asked.

I looked at the display case to my left. It was full of pastries that would make me go to the gym for a day to burn it off. Though I decided to get the Apple pie that caught my eye. "One apple pie, please." I said.

The women opens the case, grabs the pie, and puts it away in a pastry box, "That will be 50 cents."

I complied and gave her a five dollar bill, but replied with, "Keep the change."

I grabbed the bag, but was stopped by a light pink haired girl. I didn't get scared, but I did back up for her to get some air. She had a white shirt, a green skirt, a pair of green boots, and had a butterfly pin to hold her hair up.

I spoke, "Oh, I'm sorry about that. Are you alright?"

She only nods, "I'm fine..." She mumbles.

I couldn't hear what she was saying, "I'm sorry, what was that?"

She didn't respond, but took a deep breath, "Yes I am fine." She said more clearly.

"Oh that's good. I'm Zephyr, what's your name?"

"I'm Fluttershy..." She said almost whispering.

I glanced at the window and the storm was getting closer, "Well Fluttershy, lets meet again soon, alright?" She only nodded in response, but was slightly smiling.

"Good bye." That was all I heard from her as I powered walked out the door.

I made it to the clothing... er 'Carousel Boutique', but at what cost? The storm was getting very close and I am running out of time, but while I'm here, I will get my clothing and get an umbrella. I scan my surroundings and saw two women bickering about something.

"Applejack, what I'm telling you is that this dress will make you fabulous!" Said a purple haired girl. She was wearing a blue skirt, a white shirt and had a black belt around her waist. I could tell that this girl was all about fashion, because she was trying to convince the other girl to wear it.

"Like I said Rarity, I ain't a girl full of fashion! I just want a simple dress for the next Prom; none of these sparkling doohickeys!" Applejack said.

'Looks like they're in a heated argument. I'll just mind my own business.' I thought as I browsed through the men's clothing. One sweater, a pair of shorts, five pairs of socks, and one Umbrella. When I picked those out, the two women were through with their argument and I decided to cough to get their attention.

"Um... Where do I purchase these?" I asked.

"Why through me of course; my name is Rarity and my 'lovely' friend back there is Applejack." She said. I handed her the selected clothing and she gave me the price of the items.

Items Unit Price Total Price

1 Sweater $0.95 $0.95
5 pairs of socks $0.35 $1.75
2 shorts $1.48 $2.96
1 Umbrella $3.00 $3.00

Subtotal $8.66
Tax 5.00% $0.43
Total $9.09

"Keep the change." I said giving her ten dollars.

She smiles, "Thank you."

"Are you happy now?" Applejack spoke making our heads turn. She was wearing a dress that had apples surrounding the edge which made me blush a bit.

"You look fantastic my dear," She said, but caught my blushing and continued, "And I believe that you've attracted one of my customers." She puts my clothing into a plastic bag to which I carried.

She puts her hands on her hips, "Is that so?" She looks towards me and smirked, "The name's Applejack, what's your name partner?" She asked.

I mentally slapped myself and spoke, "My name is Zephyr; it's nice to meet you both."

"Oh dear, the wind is picking up quite a bit out there." Rarity said, which I panned my head to the window. It was true, the wind was tossing around the pieces of garbage in the air, which made me dash for the door. "SorrystormgettingheresoonerthanIthought! NeedtogethomeBye!" I said really quickly as I ran out the door heading towards the park for a short cut.

I decided to cut through the park instead of walking the path, because it would be a faster route. The one thing I didn't notice was that I was cutting through a soccer field. The wind wasn't helping at all, it was pushing against me, away from my home. I look up as the storm clouds were heading right towards my direction. 'Mother of all things that are holy.' I thought. I didn't curse because it wasn't my cup of tea and I thought that it was just plain rude to use.

"HEADS UP!" I heard a girl shout.

I turned my head and saw a soccer ball heading towards my face. My perception saw a goal to my left and I decided to headbutt the ball into the goal. When the ball impacted my head, all the memories of when I was eight passed through me. I used to be in the soccer league, but slowly lost interest at the age of fourteen because my parents were neglecting me for their work. A gust of wind snapped me back to reality, making me look to my left to see that I made the goal.

I felt a slap on my back, "Dude! That was amazing! How did you do that? I was way off by ten feet and you made the goal while the wind was against you."

I felt my head was pounding, plus my back was hurting as well, "It has been a while, but I was in the soccer league when I was younger." I said.

"That's cool man; The name's Rainbow Dash, What's yours?" Rainbow asked. She had rainbow hair, wore a shirt with a Rainbow lightning bolt in the center, while she wore a skirt over spats and had sneakers on. I felt a raindrop land on my nose which made me look up and across the horizon was the Apartment Complex.

"I love to chat, Dash, but the storm is here and I need to head home." I said.

She looks at the storm and smirks, "Fine by me, but promise me that you'll show me some moves you learned in your league." She said.

I nodded and started to walk away, "I promise!" I said picking up the pace. I didn't look back to see Rainbow when I passed through a group of trees and bushes because I needed to get back home without getting drenched. I saw the apartment complex was several yards away as I put my hood over my head. I sprinted as fast as I could; I passed the park, crossed the street, didn't feel my feet while going up the stairs, grabbed my key out of my pocket, and unlocked the lock when I slowed down. I opened the door, I slammed it behind myself and calmed my panting.

When I recovered from my sprint, I heard the rain and hail coming down on the roof. I sighed in relief, 'I am finally safe.' I thought. It was literally minutes before all hell broke loose and I just hoped that the girls I met made it out alright.

-Sunset's point of view-

Staying inside the apartment alone was enjoyable, I was able to get a lot of the homework finished I'd been given for spring break. Though when I looked out the window, a storm was brewing outside. I sighed at the sight, the wind was pushing against the trees, rain and hail causing noise on the ceiling, and most of all it was dark as night, but it was only 4:00 pm at the time. I was currently sitting at the dining table, putting away the final assignment and got out of my seat. I stretched my limbs out because I was trying to complete all the work in one day. I heard a knock on the door and I wondered who would be here at such a time during a storm.

I turned on the light in the living room and walked towards the door when there was a set of banging on the door. "I'm coming!" I shouted. The apartment complex hallway is open to the outside which is a big bummer because the floor can be affected by the weather. I unlock the latch, opened the door to find Rainbow Dash, Applejack and Fluttershy drenched in rain water.

"Come in before you get a cold!" I said as they flooded into the living room. I went to the bathroom, grabbed some towels, gave them one each and had an extra to put on the floor.

"The S-Storm got us good." Fluttershy stuttered getting the towel to dry her hair.

"I was heading back from Rarity's, but the storm got here so fast that I couldn't make it to the barn. I ran into Rainbow and we headed straight for your house." Applejack said taking off her boots and hat.

"Yeah, then we ran into Fluttershy who was heading to your place and we decided to have one more sleepover at your house for the second last day of Spring break." Rainbow said as she finished drying her hair with her towel.

"I suppose it wouldn't be too much trouble and besides I wouldn't let you guys head back out there while its storming." I said, but continued, "Let's get you guys changed into my extra set of clothing and I'll throw the wet clothes in the dryer, OK?"

They all agreed on changing clothes and I got my spare clothes from the closet of my room.

After a few hours, the girls and I were having girl talk in the living room. Applejack and Rainbow were sharing a couch, Fluttershy was sitting on a bean bag, while I was sitting on the recliner. Applejack said something that peaked my interest.

"Anyway, I was at Rarity's when one of her customers came into the area to buy some clothing. He did like the way that I was dressed." She said.

"What's the guys name by the way?" I asked.

"His name is Zephyr, I believe." She replied to which Rainbow and Fluttershy's eyes widen.

"Applejack, I also met a guy named Zephyr holding a grocery bag at Sugarcube corner. He seemed like a nice, friendly guy to me." Fluttershy spoke up which made Rainbow cross her arms.

"Well, I also ran into him at the soccer field as he headbutted my ball into the goal because I missed the shot." Rainbow said smirking at Applejack.

"He seemed new around here." Fluttershy said.

Then there was a knock on the door, "I wonder who that could be." I said getting up.

I walk to the door, opened it to see a dark figure standing there and it said, "He has come..." Then there was a flash of lightning to reveal Pinkie in a brown coat that touched the ground.

This made me jump, "GAH!" I shouted.

Applejack walked up to the door, where I was leaning on the frame to recover myself, and spoke, "Pinkie, what in tarnation are you doing here at this time of night?"

Pinkie stepped inside as I closed the door behind her, "I met this guy at the grocery store and I found out that he is transferring to Canterlot High." We headed back to the living room area while Rainbow and Fluttershy listened to what she said.

"Are you sure? I'm not even sure what this guy looks like." I said.

Fluttershy spoke, "He had glasses, he was about my height, has brown hair with light brown highlights, slightly muscle toned, wearing a blue shirt, and blue jeans." When she finished, I realized that that was the guy who I have been crushing on since I saw him at the Pizzeria.

"Look's like we're not the only one who saw this guy." Rainbow said smirking and everybody was looking at me. The reason was obvious, I felt my cheeks burning in response of Fluttershy's description.

I recomposed myself and tried to change the subject, "Are we still going to perform at the stage near the park?"

Rainbow was still grinning, "As far as I know, unless Rarity has planned something else."

She looks at Applejack, which she spoke, "Nope, Rarity is free tomorrow to play with us in the band."

"Well that's good." I glanced at the clock and it was 8:00 pm, "Oh, would you look at the time; how time flies, I need to get some rest so I can focus for tomorrow. You girls can sleep where you want. I am going to my room. Good night." I said escaping from the curious glances from the four of them.

"Good night." Fluttershy said.

"Sleep tight." Applejack commented.

"Dream of handsome guys tonight." Rainbow added.

"Don't forget to have some warm milk before you sleep!" Pinkie said.

I was already in my room when I heard Pinkie's comment and closed the door behind me. I needed to calm down my feelings about this boy because this was getting ridiculous. I was getting a crush on this guy because of love at first sight. I don't even know about this person, all I know is his name and looks. Sweet Celestia! I was never like this in Equestria! I never talked to guys that were my age because I wasn't interested, but now I...

I fell to my knees, "I need to know soon... What is my heart trying to say?" I whispered out loud. I decided to try to shake the subject out, but my heart still held onto the feeling. I took off my clothes and got myself covered with the blanket. 'Just sleep it off and you'll be fine... Besides I need to rest for the Rainboom's performance for tomorrow.' I thought as I drifted away into a deep sleep with the boy's face in my memories.

Beautiful sound of music

-Zephyr's point of view-

I awoke ten minutes before my alarm goes off at 6:00 a.m. I pulled my covers off of me and walked to the bathroom. The shower itself, which is a glass box, was huge and I felt significantly small inside it. As the hot water hit my skin, it refreshed me. After a quick scrub of soap and shampoo, I turned off the shower and dried myself. I wiped the mirror off to see a blurry face. Without my glasses I was blind as a mole. I picked up my spare glasses by the sink and was finally able to focus on my current body. It was slowly losing muscle, but I wasn't getting chubby. I just needed to go to the gym.

I got dressed and had myself some cereal, an egg sandwich and some celery for breakfast. My attention turned to the bag that said 'Sugarcube corner' and it hit me like a ton of bricks. I was caught off guard by the storm, so I forgot to give the apple pie to my neighbor. I opened the bag, pulled out the box and opened it; the pie itself was still intact, even though I sprinted like a mother trucker to get back to the house. I was debating whether I should give the pie to the neighbor or... I shook my head and put the apple pie in the fridge, 'I need to do this now in order to be the new me.' I decided to review my course work again because it was still early. Around 8:00 a.m. I heard a commotion next door. It was all muffled through the wall, but I heard familiar voices. I heard that it was something to do with practicing near the park.

"I need to head to my house to get my instruments and I suppose you'll be doing the same?" A familiar country voice said.

I heard a collected yeps and yes's. The sounds of steps were heard as the group of four to five people went down the stairs. Then I heard a knock on the door and made my way to the entrance. When I opened the door, I saw a cross-eyed mail girl with blond hair and in a uniform with a bag that had seven bubbles stitched on the flap.

"Hello, my name it Ditzy Doo and I'm here to deliver your packages from Appleloosa, Mr. Zephyr Night." She said as two big guys brought some packages from the stairs.

"Where would you like these boxes?" He asked.

"How many do you have?" I wondered.

"Only four small boxes." Ditzy replied.

"I would like the boxes to be at the center of the room please." I said.

Ditzy handed me a clipboard, "Please sign here on the dotted line." She said.

I got the pen from my pocket, signed it and handed back the board to her, "Alright, bring them in." I said.

The two big guys brought in the packages and set them in the middle of the floor, then left by saying farewell and have a nice day. When the door closed, I grabbed a knife from the kitchen and cut the tape off the boxes. I found all of my personal belongings were inside all the boxes with a letter inside the first one. I opened the letter and read the contents:


I know I could be using the phone, but I had to go on another mission in Saddle Arabia. You know how this works, I go on a mission, try to get back to spend time with you, but in reality it will EVENTUALLY happen. I spoke with your mother by an expensive cell phone call and told her about this. She demanded to know why I could of called you, but your apartment doesn't have a phone, but overall, she got angry and I really can't do anything about that. I might be rambling on, but I just want you to know that I love you sincerely and good luck on your transfer to the school. I hope you make a lot of friends and maybe a girlfriend.

From your loving father,


P.S. Tell your mother that I am sorry about the call that dropped due to signal issues. I believe she thinks I hung up on her.

It is just as I said, my parents are very busy people and won't have enough time to spend with me, but when they try to attempt to get off of their work schedule, only one of them shows up. For example, like yesterday, Mother was able to show up to give me the key to my apartment. Another one is when Dad came to my birthday party, but had to leave in the evening because he was on call. This letter proves that my parents won't show up at the same time and this shut down my belief about the whole subject. I sighed, it usually gets me down when I think about this, but I decided to plop myself to the couch to watch the news program.

'Now here's your weather for today, Bob?' The screen turns to the weather man Bob who was wearing a bowler hat and spoke, 'The storm last night may have cause a little flooding down at Appleloosa, but over in Canterlot it was some wind damage overall. Today however, there will be clear skies and the temperature will be in the high 70's in the mid-afternoon, but the night however will be a nice 65 degrees for the low. It seems, for the rest of the week, the weather is going to be like this and it is not going to stop anytime soon. Back to you Tom.'

I immediately turn off the TV because all I wanted to know was the weather, not the current news. If the news is anything important like a disaster or an attack on our state capital, like it would even happen, I would watch it. Other than that, I really don't like the current news that they're putting out. I went to the kitchen, made myself some lunch, got out of my apartment and locked it behind me, and made my way towards the park for an afternoon stroll.

-Sunsets point of view-

The girls and I were waiting on Rarity, who was cleaning up after the storm, and we decided to clear up the stage because it was all messy. Fallen stereo systems, trash and recyclable items, lie across the floor. Before Pinkie was able to use her hair as a broom, I gave her an actual broom before she could mess it up. I saw that there were some twigs that had stabbed through the drum; I went to the provided closet, where Trixie trapped us, and got some duck tape. After I repaired the drums so they can at least last for the practice, I decided to hang out on the side of the stage and got the book out to write to Twilight. It has been a about a week since the Dazzling's incident and I personally haven't seen them at all after their failed attempt to take over the school. I grabbed out my pen, opened the book and began to write the letter.

Dear Princess Twilight,

Missing you already, hope you'll be back soon. Things are definitely looking up for me in Canterlot High. I know I still have a lot to learn about friendship. Hope you don't mind if I write for advice when I need it.

Your friend,

Sunset Shimmer

I didn't want to write about my crush on the Zephyr boy because it's personal and I didn't want to write about him at all. Though thinking about Zephyr made me think of the future. Such as giving him a tour of the school while he holds my hand and.... I closed the book, put it back into my pack and I heard Rainbow say something.

"You ready or what?" She asked.

I got to my feet as I put my guitar around my chest and walked towards the group. Rarity finally made it to the concert area and was already dressed with her keyboard in her hands.

"I'm ready." I said.

"Not dreaming about any boys while writing in the book are we?" Rarity smiled.

I shook my head, "No, I was writing to Twilight for when I need advice and no it wasn't about Zephyr." I stated as I crossed my arms.

She giggled and the girls did too, "Oh Sunset, we're only joking." Rarity said.

I sighed, "I know, but please don't make a habit of it."

"So, what are we going to play today for practice?" Pinkie asked.

"Um.. How about my song?" Fluttershy asked.

"Alright Flutter's, what's it called?" Applejack wondered.

"It's Rainbow Rocks." She said turning to the page in her book.

"Let me see!" Rainbow said snatching the book off of her hands and read the contents, "I like it! Everybody, let's review and play this."

She passed around the book and there were compliments to Fluttershy about the song. We memorized the song as we tuned our instruments for it. Finally, I gave a nod to Rainbow as well as everyone else. This was a signal that we're ready to start the song and we all looked at Pinkie as she smiled.

"One, two, three, four!" She shouted tapping her drum sticks.


We used to fight with each other
(Oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh)
That was before we discovered
(Oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh)
That when your friendship is real
(Oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh)
Yeah, you just say what ya feel
And the music, yeah, the music
Gets us to the top
As we learn how the rainbow...
Rainbow Rocks!

You can pick up the bass

[The Rainbooms]
(Oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh)

[Rainbow Dash]
And you can play the guitar

[The Rainbooms]
(Oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh)

[Pinkie Pie]
You can bang on the drums

[The Rainbooms]
(Oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh)

[Sunset Shimmer]
Or you can sing like a star

[The Rainbooms]
And the music, yeah, the music
Gets us to the top
As we learn how the rainbow...
Rainbow Rocks!

As we learn how the rainbow...
Rainbow Rocks!

When the last instrument did it's last tune, I stretched as I took off the guitar and looked at my fingers, that were slightly hardened. I had this problem before, but when I put on some skin moisturizer, they were back to normal and it lasted for the rest of the day. Going to my pack, I felt around in the inside of it and the lotion wasn't there. I clicked my tongue, zipped my pack as I leaned my guitar against the stereo and walked to Rarity.

"Rarity, do you happen to have that skin moisturizer in your purse? I forgot to bring some from my apartment." I said.

She put aside her keyboard and walked to her purse, which was on another stereo to the other end of the stage. Rarity looked through her purse, grabbed the lotion and tossed it towards my direction. I caught it, but nearly dropped it because the lotion dripped on top of the bottle.

"You can keep it, because I have a whole bunch at home and I've already used it." She said.

I smiled, "Thanks Rarity." I said squirting the lotion on my palm. The soothing moisture against my hands as they mixed into my skin felt amazing. I rubbed the lotion against my hands and it was dry after the lotion was applied. Now my hands, specifically my fingers, weren't hardened and now I can play several more rounds of songs. I wish we had this kind of lotion in Equestria; it would of probably work on my hooves or even my fur because when I was there last, I would always chip my hoof and only magic could cure it. This lotion can prevent harden fingers and when there is a broken nail it prevents it from getting infected. It saved Rarity on a few occasions when she suddenly broke a nail, for different reasons and the lotion really does work. I believe this product is from Dr. OrSid Industries, I haven't heard of them before, but my friends told me that their a business that sells different items from Technology to house hold items. They even have a store several blocks away from the school. After admiring my hands for a while, my ears picked up the conversation of what song to play next.

"What's next?" Applejack asked.

"Shine like Rainbows?" Rarity asked.

"Oh! I like that one." Fluttershy commented.

"Yeah! Let's do that!" Rainbow said.

"Let's get a move on then!" Pinkie said tapping her drum sticks.

"Alright, just wait for me to get ready." I said putting my guitar around my chest and grabbed the microphone, "I'm ready." I nodded. Everyone else gave the nod of approval to Pinkie to start her thing.

"One, two, three, four!" Pinkie shouted.

-Zephyr's point of view-

When I got to the park, that was across the street, I took in all the scenery that was in front of me. Even though the storm passed through yesterday, the plants, trees, bushes and land weren't littered by any trash that was thrown around by the wind. I noticed a sign that said 'No Littering or get fined to a minimum of $500'. 'I guess that everybody follows the rules, which is fine.' I thought. It was true, Appleloosa was the same at the cherry orchard and apple orchard because they're litter free and if anybody tried to drop trash, they would have to do unpaid labor work for 24 hours as punishment.

'Maybe I could go to that concert where the neighbors are going.' I thought. I stopped at a fork in the road and there was a sign in the middle pointing to different directions. 'Open-air Concert' is to the right, 'Park Exit' is to the left and I turned to the right to head towards the concert. As I walked, I looked at the sky and wondered what was going to happen to me when I get to the school. I've already went through this when I was doing homework. As I was doing that my dreams were mostly about me hooking up with that girl.


The front of my body crashed into a wall. "Ow." I said through the wall. I stepped back and rubbed my nose to make sure I wasn't bleeding. My eyes focus on the sign, that was above me and it said 'Open-air Concert: Open for anyone.' 'Well that was a short trip.' I thought. I look to my left and the entrance was there. I walked through the entrance, poked my head out the other side to see if there was anybody around. There was no audience to see as I panned my head towards the stage to see six girls with their instruments. It would seem that they were about to play a song. To what amazed me is that I met these girls yesterday: Pinkie, Fluttershy, Rainbow, Applejack and Rarity. My eyes then lay upon another girl and it was the same girl that I saw at the Pizzeria with a guitar over her shoulder and microphone in her hand. I felt my heart quicken when I got a second look at her. Her beauty and cuteness should be illegal around this area. The realization of her being friends with the other girls almost made me faint. I made acquaintances to girls whom are friends with the girl I am crushing on.

"I'm ready." She said.

The beautiful voice broke my ears and I swear to the stars that they were bleeding hearts of pure joy. I think I may have a disease that I don't want to cure. I saw them nod towards Pinkie and she smiled.

"One, two, three, four!" She shouted.


Once upon a time
You came into my world and made the stars align

Now I can see the signs
You pick me up when I get down so I can shine

[The Rainbooms]
Shine like rainbows
Shine like rainbows
Shine like rainbows
Shine like rainbows

[Rainbow Dash]
Friends, you are in my life
And you can count on me to be there by your side

[Sunset Shimmer]
And when the music comes alive
We sing our songs to lift us up so we can shine

[The Rainbooms]
And the sound that we hear in our hearts
Makes a crescendo
And the light that ignites in the dark
It makes us all glow
And shine like rainbows
We shine like rainbows
Shine like rainbows
We shine like rainbows
Together we stand
As the rain begins to fall
And holdin' our heads up high
As the sun shines through it all

[The cast]
And the sound that we hear in our hearts
Makes a crescendo
And the light that ignites in the dark
It makes us all glow
And shine like rainbows
We shine like rainbows
Shine like rainbows
We shine like rainbows

[The Rainbooms]
We shine like rainbows

During the song, I felt my brain, heart and soul were one. The originality of the song, the way it sound, it was somehow harmonious. I know it sounds cheesy, but it was so true though. The only time I felt that my body were one was when I had discovered heavy metal music at the beginning of Middle School. By the stars, has it been that long since I had that feeling? I really wouldn't know, but what I do know is that I found my new band that I can become a fan in. I just need to ask what band they're called. Now that I'm thinking about it, I was still hidden away and my mind process didn't let me duck back behind the wall. I didn't think about it ahead of time as I stepped out passed the bleachers, trying to mind my own business and walked towards the stage.

I felt my heart was beating ten times faster when I took a step forward and when I approached the stage I noticed that the girl was looking at me. 'To late to turn back now.' I thought.

I tried to start a conversation, "H-Hello." I choked.

The girls stopped their conversation, turned their headed to me and to my surprise, they smiled. Maybe it was because I met them individually? I didn't know, but I saw Rarity step forward.

"Why hello darling? Did you happen to listen to our main performance?" She asked.

I nodded, "Yes, it was unlike anything I've ever heard of. It sounds harmonic for some reason."

I saw several of them turning their eyes to another direction and Applejack in particular coughed, "Sorry, swallowed an' air bubble." She said..

"No problem, I ran into those myself." I said, but turn my attention to the girl.

'Alright, don't get embarrassed and try to be cool... Easier said than done.' I thought. "H-Hi, my name is Zephyr. I've met your friends, Pinkie, Fluttershy, Applejack, Rarity, and Rainbow. What's your name?" I asked.

I saw her cheeks blush as she put her hand to grab her left arm, "Um..."

Then I saw Rarity walk up to her and she looks at me, "Sorry about that darling, she didn't get enough to drink before our practice and is a bit parched at the moment. She'll get talking after I'm finished with her." She said pulling the girl by the hand and walking to the nearest water fountain.

Pinkie just then popped right in front of me, "Hi!"

I jumped so high that I was already on the stage, which was a 4-5 feet high from the bleachers and I got a giggle from the pinked hair girl. I calm myself down as I took a deep breath, "I think I'm going to have a heart attack if you keep that up Pinkie." I mean seriously, I don't even know what this girl is thinking and yet we're talking like were old friends.

"Sorry about that, it's just Pinkie being Pinkie." Rainbow said.

"Eeyup." Applejack nodded, "You can't explain it either, it's just Pinkie Pie."

I continued the conversation, "So, are you guys in a band or something?"

"Um... We're called the Rainbooms." Fluttershy said.

'So that's why the girl named the 'Rainbooms' order in the Pizzeria.' I thought. It kind of made sense because if they were a band, they would of had parties and the ordered pizza was evident.

"How long ago since the band was put together?" I asked.

"Well, if you need to know, it started when a friend pulled back our broken friendship back together and had to leave due to moving issues. I decided to form the band after that and the rest is musical history." Rainbow explained.

The rest of us decided to continue the conversation to keep my mind wondering about the girl, to whom I don't know the name of. I kind of wondered what kind of person she is, but that question faded when I talked to her friends.

-Sunset's point of view-

Rarity took me away from Zephyr as we made our way towards the back of the concert. She let go of my hand as she crossed her arms and wasn't too impressed of what I've done.

"What was that back there?" She asked.

"Uh... A boy trying to ask who I was?" I asked sheepishly.

"More like you nearly fainted and choked on your own day dreaming." Rarity exclaimed.

"What do you mean?" I asked. Did I really almost faint? Or was I day dreaming about him right in front of me? I really don't know what to think, my mind is scattered due to Zephyr.

She lightly puts her hand on her forehead, "By the stars, it's worse than I thought." She puts her body against the wall, trying to fan herself dramatically and this made me rise an eyebrow.

"I'm confused Rarity... what is going on?" I asked.

"You're in love with a boy you barely know and you already have love sickness." She explained.

"Love sickness?"

"You're in love with Zephyr so much that you can't function properly. Did this happen a lot in Equestria?" She asked.

I shook my head, "It has never happened to me and besides I don't know what it was like to love in Equestria." I crossed my arms.

"Sunset, I am going to help you out with your problem."

"I don't want to be a burden on your part Rarity." I said.

"Are we friends, Sunset?" She questioned.

"Yes, of course." I said.

"Then let me help you in your need because that is what friends do." She smiled.

"I don't even know what to even say, but thanks Rarity."

"It's no problem at all, now don't worry about anything. You will start with the basic's, just introduce yourself and try not to freeze or day dream." She points her finger towards me.

"Alright, but it I have to ask: have you been through this situation before?" I asked.

She blushed, "Well, a lady has done her reading on novels and this situation is on par with it."

I smiled, "Alright Rarity, what do I do?"

It's only been less than thirty minutes, but I was able to understand what Rarity was trying to say to me. 'Just take a deep breath an tell yourself to be confident. No one is judging you when you're talking to another person that you like in particular. Most of all be passionate.' Her teachings repeated in my head, which were great to remind myself if I was in a pickle. Rarity told me the basics of how a person that they're interested in would talk to them. I really don't get the term of 'hard to get'. Equestria kind of had that feature, but it was considered rude for anypony. I decided to follow her teachings, but I was going to act myself so that I could show that I was in control. When Rarity and I got back to the group, they were currently chatting with Zephyr.

"... Yeah, I am going to transfer to Canterlot High for the next quarter of the semester." He nodded his head towards Applejack.

"I believe you'll need a tour around the school." Her eyes glance at me as she points towards me, "This girl will be able to do that for you." She said.

Zephyr turns his attention to me and I almost freeze into position, but was elbowed by Rarity, "Uh... Yes, I am the tour guide for new students that transfer from overseas for a while or for permanent student transfers. My name is Sunset Shimmer and it is a pleasure to meet you Zephyr." I reached out my hand.

I saw his cheeks blush a little when he glanced at my hand, but smiled and gladly shook my hand. 'Ohmygosh, ohmygosh, ohmygosh! It's working!!' I cheered internally. Rainbow coughed and it made me realize that we were shaking our hands for a little while longer, we then let go of our hands and smiled at one another.

"So, I guess school starts tomorrow?" He asked trying to ease the awkwardness.

"Y-Yeah, in about 14 hours school will be in session." I answered.

He looked at his watch and click his tongue, "Sunset, Rarity, Rainbow, Applejack, Fluttershy, and Pinkie: it's been fun, but I have to head back home for today. See you at school I guess." He said getting up and taking his leave.

"It's nice to see you Zephyr." Applejack said.

"It was fun talking!" Pinkie cheered.

"Talking about soccer made me want to practice a lot more, thanks for the tips man." Rainbow thanked.

"Talking about the animals in Appleloosa was nice to hear from you." She said.

"Sorry for not joining on the conversation, darling, but I'll see you at school tomorrow." Rarity waved.

"I guess I'll catch to tomorrow, Zephyr." I said patting his shoulder.

He nods with a smile, "Catch you all tomorrow." He said walking out of the stage and out to the park.

When he was out of sight, I sighed in relief and felt my cheeks burning because my imagination was running wild of scenarios of Zephyr and I in dates. Though I heard some snickering in the background and I turned to see that all of my friends were smirking except for Pinkie and Fluttershy. I cross my arms and sighed again.

"OK, so I might have taken a liking to Zephyr." I admitted.

"Oh! So she admits it, eh?" Rainbow comments.

"Well shoot, it's great for you to admit that sugarcube." Applejack said knowing that she kept my promise a secret until I said anything.

I blush, but I felt Rarity's hand on my shoulder, "You did well, Sunset. Will you be fine touring Zephyr tomorrow?" She asked.

I nod, "I'll use your teachings to get me through this, besides, I never felt this way before in my entire life. It is something really special." I said.

"That must be so romantic." Fluttershy commented.

"Must be because I don't understand any of it!" Pinkie said while playing the drums on a random tune.

Applejack shook her head, "It doesn't matter what we do or don't understand, its that Sunset is falling in love." She smirked.

I blushed and got my both hands to cover my cheeks, 'L-L-L-Love? Oh by the stars!!! That must be!' I thought. Calm down Sunset, just take a deep breath and head home for the night. It has been a long exhausting night, but it will be exciting tomorrow to say the least. I felt my cheeks turn to normal as I grab my stuff to get ready to go.

"I think I'm going to head out as well. I need to think on a few things." I said.

"You have a nice rest, darling. You deserve it." Rarity said.

"Yeah, like she said, but in a-" Rainbow got a thunk on the head by Applejack's bass, "Hey!"

"Careful what you say, you varmint!" Applejack hissed, but continued, "Have a nice day sugarcube." She said.

"Goodnight Sunset." Pinkie and Fluttershy say at the same time.

I waved and walked back to my apartment, hoping to sleep fast so I can meet up with Zephyr tomorrow.

Tour and sudden first date

View Online

-Zephyr's point of view-

Last night I had a dream, a dream that made me see the future. These kind of dreams would happen to certain people and would give them a deja vu experience. This particular dream was specifically about Sunset Shimmer and I going for our first date. It was a dream date mind you, but again it felt so real that I would love to experience it. This date was just a walk around the park, hanging out in the local arcade and having dinner before heading home.... When I awoke from this dream, I immediately look at the clock and it was 6:29 am before my alarm goes off. I took off the covers to get up to turn off the alarm clock, I went to the bathroom to brush my teeth and sprayed on deodorant before getting dressed. I decided to wear a nice plain blue polo, that I got from my dad, and the pair of shorts that I bought the day before. Once dressed, I went to the kitchen to have some breakfast, but to be interrupted by a knock on the door. I decided to walk towards the door and upon opening it, was a newspaper nicely rolled up with a letter next to it. I picked up the letter and proceed to reading it:

Dear Sir/Madam,

Your arrival to Canterlot brings us to introduce our Canterlot Daily newspapers. There is no money involved in subscribing to our services to give the best of the best news articles that are up-to-date. We are happy to announce your first newspaper that will be coming to your door (and our other customers) every Monday morning. Our staff will deliver your newspaper with a knock or door bell and will leave the newspaper, no questions asked and no interaction so you can go on with your morning as you see fit.


The President of Canterlot Daily,

Velvet Column

For more information call...

'Well that was a good thing to start the morning.' I thought. Appleloosa didn't have a lot news in the area, but did have a magazine to keep up with the current events. This will actually give me a reason to read the newspaper every Monday and most of all it's free because I live in Canterlot now. I picked up the Newspaper and unrolled to see the title as well as the date.

Canterlot Daily Newspaper

Date: April 20th 1910


Criminal still on the run... Pg. 1

School Starts Once Again For Canterlot High Pg. 2

Mysterious Unicorn with Wings Appears and Disappears in the Open-air Concert Pg. 3

I took my eyes off the paper and proceed to have my breakfast, which was an egg sandwich, cereal, orange juice and an apple. As I ate my breakfast, I read the contents of the Newspaper: The criminal that caused a bank robbery, heist at a local grocery store (apparently by himself), assault on women, was still at large and he was last seen at Van-hoover; Canterlot High is starting school again with some new staff to help out the students for their needs; the economy was doing great in a sense that some of it was being put into the military; though I skimmed the weird 'Unicorn with wings' article and eventually made it to the comics.

I glance at the clock, it was 7:00 am. I sighed as I put away my dishes in the dishwasher and packed my backpack with my school supplies for my new classes. I put on my windbreaker, shoes, hat and sunglasses as I opened the door to head out to School. 'School should start around 8:30.' I thought. I liked to head to school early because I didn't want to deal with people until I was in class. As I headed out, I saw the neighbors door and it just donned on me: Shimmer... Sunset Shimmer. It could be a coincidence that a different family might be living in the apartment right next to me, but I just wanted to see if I was wrong for once. I walk up to the door as I knocked it three times. I waited for a little while, but the door opened and I saw Sunset Shimmer, in her pajamas, and her hair all ruffled up.

"How may I help, you..." She looked at me and dragged out the last word.

"Uh, hi Sunset." I put my hand behind my head trying to act cool, but in reality my heart was going to bounce out of my chest. Her morning 'look' was so cute and so irresistible that I might die from it.

I saw some blush coming from her cheeks, "H-How did you know I lived here?" She asked.

'Try not to make this awkward.' I thought. I cleared my throat, "I-I happen to be your n-neighbor."

Her eyes widened, "You mean you live in 304?" She stated.

I nodded, "Uh, yeah."

Our eyes stayed glued to one another, due to the fact that the girl that I liked lives right next to me. I think I might have broke her mental state because I saw that she was blushing, and she was silent for most of the time. I finally was able to speak after our long 'stare' session.

"Uh, Sunset?" I asked.

She shook her head, "Yes?"

"Uh..." 'Think of something you bimbo!' I shouted in my head. "How long until you head to school? I would like to take a walk with you while we chat." I said.

Good! That's good to ask a girl if she wants to take a walk with you to the school. Its the first steps of having a relationship from Friends to an intimate one. The thought of me having an intimate relationship made me blushed and might of shown that I was slightly embarrassed, which I was not.

"That sounds nice." Sunset said. "Would you like to wait inside?" She offered.

Time seemed to stop at that moment, my heart was now beating so fast that it could run a marathon without a sweat. I nod without thinking as she walked inside and I followed to close the door behind me. When I was inside the apartment, I was nervous. Even though I was her neighbor and our apartments are similar, I still can't believe that this is happening to me. The girl who I like, love, crush on, whatever, has invited me into her house. In her pajamas no less!

"Y-You can hang out in the living room, while I get ready alright?" She said grabbing her left elbow.

I nodded as I sat into the couch that was available to me, "Um... Did you have breakfast yet?"

Sunset shook her head, "Not yet, but I think I'll get it on the way." She stated.

"Oh, OK." I said smiling a bit. I was currently getting myself an idea to impress her.

"I'll be right back." She said walking down the hallway and closing the door when she got into her bedroom.

I got up and browsed her kitchen. I don't think it's rude for a guest to do this sort of thing, but I was getting cold feet while I was doing it. I opened the fridge to find eggs, an assortment of fruits and vegetables. I smirked at this, 'Omelet's would be perfect for her.' I thought. I examine her stove, it was the same as mine, and I started cracking when I heard the shower turn on. The movie cliche where the Protagonist is in this embarrassing situation when the Heroine is in the shower while he's currently alone in the house. I try to shrug it off, but I couldn't help it when I imagine her in the nude while hot water hits her chest, belly and...

I sigh and grabbed a pepper bell, an already cut onion, and cheese. I was trying to get into the cooking mood because the fact remained that Sunset is taking a shower while I'm here. I found the cutting board, cut the pepper and onion into nice pieces. I grabbed a bowl from the shelf and proceed to crack the eggs into it. I pulled some drawers to find the whisk to mix the three eggs to a fine liquid. I found the pan and set it on the hot area as I poured the eggs into the pan. Once the egg was on the pan, I grabbed a spatula to move the omelet when it's ready. After a few minutes, I put the peppers, onions, and cheese on top the omelet. I turned off the stove and found a plate in the shelf. I got the spatula as I moved the finished omelet and put it on the plate.

As soon as I was done with making her breakfast, the shower stopped and it calmed my perverted nerves. I put the omelet in the microwave and I hear the door open. I looked at Sunset and she was wearing the same outfit when I first saw her. I'm pretty sure she has other outfits, but I'm really not complaining.

"Um... Why do I smell cooked eggs?" She asked.

I pulled the plate that had her breakfast and placed it on the counter, "I made breakfast for you, if you don't mind." I said.

She was unsure of what to say, but Sunset smiled as she happily grabbed a fork from the drawer. She grabbed a seat and proceeded to eat, but stopped and frowned a bit.

"Didn't you make yourself some?" She wondered.

"Um... I already had breakfast, but I would like a carrot." I said.

She waved her arm towards the fridge, "Help yourself and thank you for making this. I really appreciate it."

"Y-Your welcome." I stuttered as I opened the fridge to grab a carrot. She and I ate our provided food, but she happened to finished first and sighed with satisfaction.

"That was delicious, I didn't know you could cook." She said.

"It was something that I picked up when my parents were away because of their work." I said scratching my head.

"I never knew that your parents are at work. Are they important?" She asked.

I sighed as I finished my carrot, "Mom now works for Dr. OcSid because of a new technological break through and my Dad still works for the military on many different mission across the world."

I noticed her hands her slightly clenched, "That must have been hard on you, with your parents not spending time with you."

'I wonder why I'm having this conversation.... Oh, that's right I mentioned it.' I thought. "It's no big deal, besides, it gives me enough freedom to do many things I couldn't."

"Such as?" She wondered.

"Traveling to many places by bus when school is out for the summer. I went to Las Pegasus, Van-hoover, and so many places from here that I want to visit as well that I can't think of the names." I explained.

She nodded, "Well you may have someone to take with you..." She blushed, "If you want."

I scratched my chin, "That could be arranged." I feel my cheeks turn red.

She suddenly gets up, puts her plate away and grabs her bag from the living room, "Shall we get to school?"

I smiled, "Yes, let's go."

-Sunset's point of view-

Zephyr and I talked about traveling while we headed to Canterlot High. It was actually quite convenient that he and I were neighbors. Since I was going to give him the tour of the school, I minus well tell him some pointers about the town in general. I knew that I would have to tell him about who I really was, but that would have to wait. Why couldn't I tell him now? My heart was having too much fun at beating at a trotting's pace.

"I suppose you know where things are around town?" I asked.

He nodded, "Yes, I been to the grocery store, Sugarcube Corner, the Pizzeria, and the bank. Though I haven't been to the Dr. OcSid's store before, there wasn't any over in Appleloosa."

"So your from Appleloosa?" I asked.

He sort of winced when I said it, "Uh, no... I was born in Manehatten, but I moved before I could call it my home town, now it's my birthplace." He chuckled, "You could say that every town became my home town."

I giggled, "Yeah, your home town is the whole country."

We laughed as we entered the Canterlot High Campus. There weren't many students around as we got close to the entrance. He opened the door for me and smiled.

"Here you go Sunset." He said.

I giggled and played along, "Why thank you, Zephyr."

We made our way toward the Principles office and I opened the door, but stopped Zephyr in his tracks. "Sorry, I need to get some things done. I hope you'll understand." I said.

He put his hands behind his head, "No worries. I'll wait." He replied.

"I won't be too long. I still got to give you the tour." I said as he nodded. I closed the door behind me as I happily sighed.

"Look's like someone had a good Spring Break." Said a familiar voice.

"Yeah, I had a great time with my friends." I stretched the truth.

I look to my right to see Vice Principle Luna with Principle Celestia having coffee at their own desks. I smiled and hummed as I headed to the filing cabinet that has the maps, brochures, and menus for future meals in the cafeteria. For some reason, there were some blueprints on buildings that haven't been built yet. I pulled out the Canterlot brochure and the Campus map of Canterlot High.

"Anything interesting happened? Other than that storm that nearly tore the school's roof off?" Celestia asked.

"N-No." I lied.

"Really? You seem happier when we last met you." Luna said.

"I... Made a new friend and he happens to be out here for me to give him the tour." I explained.

"Ah, you're talking about Zephyr?" Celestia asked.

"Yes, and if you would excuse me, I need to give him the tour before school starts in twenty minutes." I informed them walking out the door.

"Make sure you properly introduce us after your done. Oh! Don't forget his locker number is 216." Celestia said quickly.

"I'll make sure I do that." I said closing the door.

"... Sunset will you go out with me?" Zephyr said.

I felt my face heat up and I took a deep breath, but the tactic that Rarity taught me was fading really fast. I took another deep breath and said what was the truth. "Yes." I said closing my eyes.

"Wait... You said yes?" He asked.

I opened my eyes to see he was blushing, "Uh... Yes. Yes I did." I confirmed.

"So your OK with that?" He asked.

I grabbed my chest through my shirt, "I'm pretty sure."

He scratched his chin, "Should we go on our date after school?"

"That's perfectly fine." I said as I recovered my composure and cleared my throat, "Let's give you the tour. Here, have these." I handed him the map and brochure.

He smiled, "Thanks."

After that, I gave Zephyr the tour. I showed him where his classes were, I guided him to the gym, cafeteria, park, soccer field, and the tornado room. As soon as the tour was done, the first bell rang and I guided him to his assigned locker which is next to mine. Huh, that is weird. Were neighbors and locker mates. Also, the classes that were on his schedule were similar to mine, but we had different math teachers. So we have the same classes, even though I'm a sophomore and he's a freshman. Was there something going on in the background? Or is this a huge coincidence? I really don't know, but I don't think my heart can take it.

"Wow, we're even locker neighbors." Zephyr smiled.

"Y-Yeah." I said opening my locker to get my books for the first few classes.

"So, I'll see you at lunch?" He asked.

"More like, I'll see you in class." I smirked.

"Wait, we have the same class?" He asked.

I winked at him, "Yep." I cheered.

"Let's get seats so that were next to each other." He said.

I blushed, "That's fine."

We dodged many students on the way to our first class and it was still early when we got to the classroom. We picked our seats that were next to each other and once we sat on the seat, everybody started to flow into the classroom. Then the bell finally rang for the first day of class and Miss Cheerliee came into the room to begin her lecture.

Eventually, lunch happened and before we headed to the Cafeteria, I stopped Zephyr. I needed to talk to him before we meet up with our friends.

"What's up?" He asked.

"We need to keep the dating thing a secret, so we can understand each other better." I said.

He was first bewildered, but nodded, "Ah, I get it, you want it to be a secret until we know where this is going."

I nodded, "Pretty much."

"Though, Applejack might be a problem." He commented.

"Horse apples. You're right. Though, Applejack doesn't flat our yell out that you're lying." I smiled to reassure him and myself.

He chuckled, "I suppose you're right."

We made our way to the cafeteria to get our lunch and to sit with our friends. Though I heard some students talking about me behind my back about when I was a demon of the school. By the Maker, I will never let that down. At least it wasn't as bad before the Dazzlings tried to take over. Everyone still hated me when I repaired the entrance of the school. After my friends and I saved the school district from the Dazzlings, I gained more respect around school, but some people still hold a grudge and that's their problem. I've already moved on from that and I'm focusing more on the future.

In any case, lunch went perfectly, my friends, Zephyr and I stayed on the safe side about us dating. Even though we haven't been through our first date. We talked about The Rainbooms are going to the OcSid Industry mall for the weekend and Zephyr was all for it.

"So, Zephyr, you never told us why you moved here in the first place." Rarity asked.

"Yeah I was wondering the same thing. Why did you transfer on the last quarter of the school year?" Applejack wondered.

It was never my place to ask that sort of thing, but I really wanted to know and since I was sitting right next to him, I looked at his face for him to response.

He sighed, "My mom made a break through on making the first 16 Gigabyte hard drive and ram for the computer." Everybody, including myself, gasped when we first heard of this and he continued, "When that happened, she got hired to work for Dr. OcSid Industries to improve their technology and since I lived in Appleloosa, I moved here to Canterlot so that way my parents can meet me when they're not traveling. They said it would be easier for them."

Pinkie stood up, "So your saying that our current 16 Gigabyte, which is the size of a head, is small to the size of a hand?" He nodded and she gasped again, "WHAT SORCERY IS THIS!?" She shouted.

"Um... Pinkie it's not sorcery, it's computer science." Fluttershy said.

"Correct Fluttershy." Zephyr chuckled, "So yeah that's why I'm here for the last quarter of the semester."

"Alright, so your mother's an egghead, but what about your dad?" Rainbow asked.

"He works for the military and works on missions around the world." He said.

"That's cool man." Rainbow said taking a bite of her apple.

I glance at the clock, "It's almost time for class again."

"Oh!" Fluttershy said, "One more question: Are you a vegetarian?"

Zephyr smiled, "Yes, but with some exceptions such as eggs, and a bit of sea food."

'Oh thank the Maker he's not a meat eater.' I thought. "I happen to be a vegetarian myself actually."

Rainbow smirked, "Yeah, it was like you guys were made for each other." She teased.

My cheeks burned with embarrassment and I glance at Zephyr to see that he was the same way. Just then the bell rang and we said our good-byes to only scatter to our final classes. Zephyr was still following me until he made a different turn towards his math class.

"See you next class." He waved.

I waved back, "Definitely!"

-Zephyr's point of view-

After some boring math, my final class of the day was Physical Education or P.E. for short. As I made my way to the gym, I couldn't believe what was going to happen after school. I'm going on a date with Sunset Shimmer. It was a complete accident as well because I was practicing to ask her out after school, but I said it out loud when she came back. I saw Sunset and waved at her. She noticed me and waved back as she walked into the Girls locker room. I sighed as I entered the Boy's locker room and I found my locker that had my P.E. kit inside. I got changed around the other guys who were talking about sports, but that all changed when I got a tap on the shoulder. I got a shiver up my spine and looked behind me. Two boys: one had orange skin with green hair and one with green skin with orange hair. They were slightly shorter than me as they stared at me and looked a bit worried.

I sighed as I put on my shirt to finally speak to them, "Can I help you?"

The look at each other then back to me, "You're not mind controlled are you?"

I looked at them like they're some sort of alien, "What do you mean 'mind controlled?'" I air quoted.

Before they could say anything the gym teacher whistled his bell and everybody left the room immediately. I was left alone with the gym teacher, he was big muscle guy, had yellow hair buzz cut and a hat with tiny wings on the side. I felt tiny when I was in front of him and in fact he was taller than me, leaving me to be intimidated.

"You're new here aren't you?" He asked in a gruff voice.

I gulped, "Y-Yes sir... I just transferred here." I stuttered.

"Hmm." He hummed, but smiled, "Well, I'll give you a pass for looking top fit." He said.

D-Did he just approve me? "Uh... Thanks, you can thank my Dad for that." I said scratching my head.

"Ah, now I remember you! Your Derick's kid!" He laughed slapping my back like my dad does which didn't surprise me.

"Wait... You know my dad?" I asked.

"Yeah!" He shouted proudly, "He and I were on a mission, but due to an accident-" He lifted his left pants leg and showed that he had a prosthetic leg leading up to his knee, "-I wasn't able to continue on the military, but I have to tell ya, your dad is some guy."

I smiled, "Yeah, he sure is."

He suddenly put his arm on my shoulder, "I like you already kid, the names Snowflake and don't let that name fool you." He chuckled as we headed out the locker room and into the Gym, "ALRIGHT YOU LADIES AND GENTS! LADIES RUN A MILE AROUND THE GYM!" The females, including Sunset, bee lined to run around the gym because of the intimidation, "GENTLEMEN!" He shouted and it got their attention, "YOU'RE GOING TO CONTINUED THE EXERCISING VIDEO WE DID BEFORE WE LEFT FOR SPRING BREAK!" They groaned and I slightly sighed. I looked up at him and he smiled as well, "Don't worry, you'll join them for the next day, for now you need to fill out some paper work."

'Well at least I'm not exercising right off the bat.' I thought. I felt some eyes going my way and Snowflake spoke up, "GENTLEMEN!! HUSTLE!!!" They got to the center of the gym, where the TV was and one of the students pressed play on the DVD player to get started.

I sort of smiled at their misfortune, but it faded away because I was going to be with them very soon. Snowflake handed me a small stack of papers and a pen. He smiled and told me to fill it out as best as I could. I agreed as I wrote down all my information, parents information, etc... Once that was finished, I handed the papers to Snowflake and he told me to relax for the rest of the class or join up with the guys. I nodded and stayed put for the rest of the hour, I didn't want to exercise on the first day. The other reason, however, was that I stared at Sunset as she ran around the gym.

I blushed when I saw Sunset, running in her P.E. kit (a white shirt with the High school Logo and a pair of shorts), and she looked amazing. Not only was she ahead of all the girls while running, but she was trying to keep it elegant. When she came around towards the bleachers, where I was sitting, something happened. I don't know who did it, but someone tripped her and she fell on her side on the ground.

I immediately stood up and jumped to the ground after I pushed myself over three bleacher seats. I jogged towards Sunset as she was trying to get up and when I stopped, I knelt down to offer my hand.

"You alright?" I asked.

She nodded slightly, "Yeah, though I kind of twisted my ankle a bit." She takes my hand and I lift her up to her feet.

I looked across to see the girls, who were still minding their own business as they ran around the gym. I took Sunset's hand and we made our way towards Snowflake who saw the whole ordeal.

"Taking Sunset to the nurses?" I nodded, "Go ahead then, I don't want to see my students get injured." He said.

We walked away from the gym as I held Sunset's hand. Luckily the nurses office was close to the locker rooms. Since it was almost time to go anyway, we went our separate ways to change. I got my P.E. kit into my backpack and once I was changed, I walked out of the door to see she was right next to the entrance.

"Hey." She said.

"Hey... How's your ankle?" I asked.

"A little sore, but moleskin should be able to take care of it." She blushed, "Um... Thanks for getting me up back there." She said.

I scratched the back of my head, "I-It's nothing, I just did what was natural."

"To help girls and take them to the nurses office is natural?" She smirked.

I blushed, "Um.. Uh... What I meant was." She put a finger over my mouth.

"I'm just teasing, what you did was noble." She smiled.

My heart was beating really fast, not only did she complement me about what I did for her, but the she touched my lips with her finger. I felt my world coming to a stop, this is actually happening. I took a deep breath, trying to recompose myself, and walked with Sunset to the nurses office.

Sunset got her ankle patched up and the nurses told her that it would heal after a week. It was after school and we decided to go for a walk around the park for our first date. I wanted this relationship to be nice and slow since I asked her suddenly. We had a nice conversation about our favorite subjects, such as we like to read books, we like about astrology, and most of all we loved music, specifically our genre's of music.

"So did you know that I used to play the saxophone?" I told her.

Her eyes lightened up, "What? You played the saxophone?" I nodded, "That's awesome! What made you stop?"

I sighed, "Well I kept on moving to different places and I never got to practice much."

"Oh, so do you want to practice now that you're here? I wouldn't mind to listen to you play." She said.

"Really? I never thought you like jazz music." I wondered.

She blushed, "I like all sorts of music, as long as they're played right." She stated.

"I-I see." I stuttered and saw a restaurant towards the exit of the park. "Why don't we go to that restaurant over there to end the day?" I asked.

"Uh... Sure." She confirmed.

"You don't want to go anywhere different?" I asked, making sure she is comfortable with going to the restaurant.

"N-No, it's fine, just next time let's go to Sugarcube Corner for our next date." She said trying to hide the fact that she didn't want to go.

I sighed, "Alright, lets go to Sugarcube Corner."

"I-I..." She sighed in defeat, "Fine, let's go to Sugarcube Corner."

We walked back into the park and headed to Sugarcube Corner for dinner. Once we got inside, there was no one inside, but the employee's of business were still here. Sunset asked the women, Mrs. Cake, where everybody was.

"There is a homecoming football game going on at the school. If you hurry along with your meal, you can dodge the crowd of people when the game ends." Mrs. Cake said.

"When does the game end?" Sunset asked.

"The game ends around 6:30 pm." Mr. Cake said picking up some empty boxes.

"Thank's for the heads up." I thanked her.

Sunset and I ordered an oven cooked cheese pizza and a small pie for dessert. As we ate, we talked some more about our lives and how Sunset is fascinated with fantasy. It was like she was there herself, of course I played along and shared a bit of my Science Fiction fascination to her. She liked that subject and when I asked her what she was like growing up, she got silent.

"Sunset?" I asked for her attention.

"Huh?" She snapped out of her daze.

"Are you feeling alright?" I wondered.

"Uh... Yeah, just going through memory lane." She slightly smiled.

"Oh..." I said. "Do you want to talk about it?"

She waved her hands, "N-No, I'm not really comfortable to talk about it."

"Alright." I said finishing my slice of pie.

After that, we looked at the clock and it was already six when we finished our meal. I paid the meal for both of us, which was around $10.00, and headed back to our apartments. The sun was setting in the distance as the street and park lamps lit up, illuminating the pathway. Sunset held my hand as we walked through the park.

"Did you have a great time?" I asked her.

"Yes, it was a good first date." She replied.

My mind mentally fist pumped in a victorious manner which I smiled in response. It was my first attempt to have a date for my first girlfriend since I've never had any to begin with. The walk through the park was reasonably fast and we walked up the flight of stairs quickly towards our apartments. Once we got to our apartments, we stood between our doors to say good-bye to one another.

"I had a great time." I said.

"Me too. " She replied as she suddenly hugs me.

At first I was surprised about this, but I put my arms around her and we hugged for a few minutes. It really didn't matter who was watching or not, the warmth that radiated over her body was sensational. Then she let go and smiled a bit. I noticed that she was blushing and my cheeks were flaring up as well.

Finally I spoke, "Do you want to go on another date tomorrow?" I asked.

She smiled and nodded, "I would like that very much actually."

"After school then?" I asked.

"We could do that or you can get up early so we can have breakfast together?" She wondered.

"That sounds great actually. What time do you want me to show up?" I asked.

She and I got to our doors and unlocked them with our keys, "Around the same time when you first surprised me."

"So, 6:30-7:00 in the morning?"

She nodded, "Sounds like a plan."

We opened our doors as we said our good nights and closed the door behind us to end our first successful date. 'Am I dreaming? Did I die or get in a coma because if it is, I don't want to wake up.' I thought. This is perhaps the greatest experience I've ever had and I'm not going to waste it.

Events Leading To Prom part I

View Online

-Zephyr's point of view-

Time seemed to fly by when I was with Sunset, from the first day of class to final exam week, we went on dates after school. It may have been forever since we've been together, but it had only been about 3-4 months. By the end of the second month, Sunset got more cuddly with me and I didn't mind it at all. At first we were embarrassed that our bodies touched one another, but slowly got used to it. By the end of the week, she pecked my cheek and napped right next to me. That made me the most happiest man alive when she did that and I returned it by kissing her forehead as she slept.

When the finals passed by, Sunset and I were invited to the beach with her friends. It would be kind of weird for all these women and one guy going to the beach, but they didn't mind it at all. I agreed to go and so did Sunset. Apparently, Sunset invited another girl name Twilight to come with us. I asked her where Twilight was from and she told me that she was from far north. I didn't know any town that was from up north, but I knew that some farmers and families live up there. Though that didn't stop me from being suspicious.

Before we went to the beach, Rainbow and Applejack took us to Dr. OcSid's Mall. Fluttershy, Rarity and Pinkie were going to meet us there, while Big Macintosh, who is Applejack's brother, drove us there in his pick up truck. We all had a chat about random stuff until Rainbow said something.

"So, I guess you guys are going to the Prom?" She asked Sunset.

"Yes, I'm taking Zephyr with me as my date." She said holding my hand.

I nodded as I remembered that day, which was before finals, when she asked me, "I wouldn't miss it for the world." I chuckled.

"Have you guys kissed yet?" Rainbow asked to get more juicy details.

I nodded, "Just a peck on the cheek." I slightly blushed.

"WHAT?!" Rainbow and Applejack shouted to which Sunset and I flinch in response.

"You're telling us, that you guys been together for three in a half months long and you haven't kiss on the lips!" Rainbow stated.

"Uh..." Sunset blushed, "Pretty much."

"I know that you're together and I know you guys wanted this to be a slow relationship, but is it a bit too slow?" Applejack wondered.

Now that I think about it, yeah we have been taking this a bit too slow. Heck, I haven't even thought of kissing Sunset on the lips. Or getting to the next base which was... Oh by the Maker, I need to get my moves straightened up to get closer to Sunset. There was one other thing that bothered me the most, it was about that first date. When I asked her about the past, she went into a daze. I asked her once in a while when the time was right, but she refused to tell me. I asked her when she would tell me and she said when we go to the beach with Twilight. I didn't know what that mean't, but if it mean it would give me an answer, so be it.

"We're here." Big Mac grunted as he stopped the truck at the drop off area.

"Thanks, bro." Applejack responded by patting his shoulder.

We all hopped out of the truck to see that Pinkie and the others were there too. They greeted us as Big Mac drove off into the distance. I looked to my right to see the Mall in it's full glory. It was like five warehouses combined into one to make this huge monstrosity. It took my breath away as well as for Sunset. It was a good thing I went to the bank and withdrew around $250.00.

"Well, are you going to gawk or come with us?" Pinkie asked.

"Y-Yeah." I gulped as I held Sunset's hand.

"Oh no! You're not doing that, darling. We're taking Sunset to one place in particular that you can't come." Rarity said snatching Sunset's hand away from me.

"Where are we going?" She asked as she was being dragged with her friends across the parking lot.

"Don't worry about me, Sunset, I'll meet you guys at the food court." I said walking beside them.

"Sounds like a plan. See you soon." Sunset said pecking my cheek.

"Stop that this instant!" Rarity grunted, but I refused and pecked her back to which Rarity groaned.

I felt Applejack's hand pushing me away, "Alright you love birds, you need to go, go on get!" Applejack winked.

"Alright, alright." I laughed as I made my way towards the entrance and detached from the group.

I walked around the mall until I came across the electronic store. This one in particular had mom's 16 Gigabyte hard drive and Ram were displayed at the front window. It reminded me that my parents, after all this time, didn't make their promise, but I didn't care anymore because Sunset was in my life. I decided to walk inside to browse and once I was inside confetti cannons popped into the air. A banner came down saying 'One millionth costumer!'

"Congratulations!" A women in a staff uniform cheered, "You're our one millionth costumer of our store. You get this brand new computer with the new 16 Gigabyte hard drive and ram!" She presented the computer with her hand.

"Also, you get to meet up with Dr. OcSid himself at the Reuben's Restaurant today around noon! You can invite up to seven people, including yourself to meet up with him!" She said, handing me the ticket.

"Uh... Thanks." It was all I could say because I never had won anything in my life.

"Would you like to send this computer to your house or apartment?" She asked.

"Yeah, that would be great." I smiled.

"My name is Janet, and here is the paperwork to fill out." Janet gave me the clipboard and a pen.

I filled out the paperwork and handed it back to her, "Thank you, and have a nice day."

I looked at my watch and it was 10:30 am, I had an hour or so to kill, but first I needed to find Sunset and the others. I was really happy that I mysteriously won this prize and I wanted to share the wealth. I happily walked around the mall, searching for my beloved and her friends.

-Sunset's point of view-

Zephyr went away to browse around the mall, while Rarity took us to a shop that held all sorts of women's clothing. There was several reasons why we went to this store in particular: to find a bikini for the beach, get more underwear and to find a dress for the prom. When I told Rarity that I didn't have any dress for the prom, she immediately thought of this store. The girls scattered to find what they needed as Rarity took me to the bikini section first.

"Rarity, I know we have to go to the beach soon, but why did you make Zephyr leave?" I wondered.

She browsed through different bikini's and sighed, "I didn't want to spoil the surprise that your going to give him."

"What? The surprise is going to be me in a bikini? I really don't get it." I told her.

She gasped, "You need to keep his eyes on you at all times while were at the beach because there is going to be competition."

"Competition?" I scratched my head.

"He's going to be drooling, figuratively speaking, all over other women."

"I'm pretty sure that won't happen."

She raised an eyebrow, "Sunset, all men do this and you need to do your part to distract him as much as you can."

I sighed, "Fine, what did you have in mind?" I gave in.

"Ah ha!" Rarity responded, "This will go great with your figure!"

I looked at the bikini and it was orange with a yellow and purplish color strips on the left side. I smiled as I saw it. It had my favorite colors and the purple was a bonus, signifying that I was under the influence of Twilight.

"Don't just stare at it darling, go ahead and get dressed." She said handing it to me. "I'll go and search for the dress for your prom."

Rarity headed to the dress area, while I got to the changing room to try out the new bikini. I locked the door behind me as I took off my jacket to then stripping off my top and pants. When I took it off, I glance at myself on the mirror, again my bra was a little tight on the shoulders, but my panties were a nice fit and my figure was still slim. 'Just to Zephyr's liking.' I thought taking off my bra.

"Sunset?" Rarity asked for my attention.


"I got a dress for you and I need to know your bra size, because you were complaining about your shoulders." She explained.

Glancing at the tag of my bra, I told her my new size and she happily passed the dress under the door.

"I'll be right back~!" Rarity sung.

I put on the bikini top and proceed to put on the bikini bottom. I look at the mirror and it I felt like I was going to steal Zephyr's eyes because of how I looked. I took off the bikini and hung it back up on it's hanger. Rarity came back to pass on the new bra and when I put it on, my shoulders felt immediate relief. 'Now I need to buy around five or six of these.' I thought as I took off the bra and put on my old one. I put on the dress, it was just one piece dress, but when I fest my eyes on myself, I looked amazing. I put on my black jacket and the dress is fantastic with it. I decided to throw my arms out and made a pose.

"Satisfied with my picking?" Rarity asked.

I smirked, "Yes, it's better than expected." I continued to take off the dress to put on my original outfit. Then I opened the door to ask Rarity where she found the bra size. She pointed to the general direction and I picked up what I need. I walked to the check out desk to purchase the items and the cashier gave me the receipt.

Item Total Price
1 Dress $12.75
5 Bra $2.00

Subtotal $14.75
Tax 5.00% $0.74
Total $15.49

It took a chunk off of the money I saved because of the concerts the Rainbooms and I have earned. 'I hope Zephyr will like the dress.' I thought. Then speak of Tartarus, Zephyr was at the entrance of the store just as the last bra was put into the paper bag.

"Zephyr! Why in the Makers name are you here?" Rainbow asked.

Apparently, Rainbow and the others were done with their shopping, they were carrying their purchased items in bags. I took my bag, closed it tightly and joined up the slightly heated argument. I saw Zephyr with a huge smile on his face to which I raised an eyebrow of why he was so happy.

"What's got you so happy?" I asked.

"I went to the store and turns out I was the one millionth customer to show up. They gave me seven VIP tickets at the restaurant called Reuben's Restaurant here at the mall." He beamed.

"Did you say, Reuben's Restaurant?" Rarity wondered, "THE Reuben's Restaurant?!"

He nodded, but was suddenly scooped up by Rarity that repeatedly saying, "Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!"

She released him and was slapped on the back by Rainbow and Applejack, "That's great to hear." They said in unison.

"I'm so nervouscited I am!" Pinkie jumped repeatedly.

"Pinkie, that's not a word." Fluttershy commented.

"That's not all though." Zephyr said.

I raised an eyebrow, "What else did they give you?"

He smiled, "Were meeting Dr. OcSid for lunch."

-Zephyr's point of view-

Women can be scary when excited. Especially when I told them they'll be meeting Dr. OcSid for lunch. After my ears have been ringing from the screams of Rarity, Pinkie and Fluttershy, we made our way to Reuben's Restaurant. Sunset and I were currently leading the group to the establishment while we held hands. I noticed when we walked through the mall, the floor, walls and glass somehow got fancier. Maybe it's the golden tints that made the building pop out.

"Did we enter the noble part of the mall?" I asked.

"Why yes, darling. The mall has three classes installed in this mall. We're in first class, but before we were in second class and I don't want to even mention the third class." She explained.

"What's wrong with the third class?" Sunset wondered.

"They have bad fashion tastes is all." She confessed.

"Uh, huh." Applejack responded, "Did we have to dress up in fancy clothes?"

I shook my head, "It was really sudden, but I believe that Dr. OcSid is a very busy man."

"Well, I don't mind. It's free food anyway." Rainbow pointed out.

"Oh! I love that kind of food!!!" Pinkie cheered.

"I wonder if Dr. OcSid like animals." Fluttershy squeaked.

I look to Sunset, who was silent and held her bag tightly. 'I wondered if that's her prom dress.' I thought. I slowly tightened my grip to get her attention and when she looked at me, I released my grip.

"Are you feeling alright?" I asked.

She shook her head, "Y-Yes, I feel fine. It's just that I wonder if my friend will approve of you."

"You mean Twilight?" I asked.

She nodded, "It might be silly, but I can't get it out of my mind."

I pecked her on the cheek and she blushed, "Worry about what's going on now instead of the future."

She smiled, "Thanks, that's what I wanted to hear."

I looked in front of me and saw the restaurant was just few feet from us. Just one look at the restaurant screamed out 'I'M FANCY!!!' and it blew me out of the water because I never expected for this place to be so close to nobility. We stopped at the booth and I handed the butler, yes a butler, the ticket I won at the store and he guided us to the table without a word. The hairs on the back of my neck stood up as I saw Dr. OcSid sitting at the end of the table, waiting patiently. We stood there as Dr. OcSid was staring in the air as if he's having an idea that will make the company better.

Finally he sighed and stood up. He had a brown suit with a yellow shirt inside and a red tie, making the suit pop out. I heard Rarity whimper in excitement. It seems that she likes the suit that he was wearing. He took his cane, that had a small clay skull of some sort of goat on top and made his way towards our direction. His hair was white, probably due to age, the facial features didn't show any wrinkles and his eyes were a rare amber color.

"Good afternoon, Zephyr Night, it's a pleasure to be an acquaintance of you." He said holding out his right hand, which was covered by a glove.

"Likewise." I replied by shaking his hand.

He looks to the back, "What do we have here?" He wondered. "More of your friends wanted to join as well?"

We all nodded, "Splendid!" He cheered, "The more the merrier, I'd say." He picked up his cane and carried it to his original seat. "Well don't just stand there ladies and gent, have a seat." He smiled.

'Something tells me that this is going to be an interesting time.' I thought. We all took our seats, I sat next to Dr. OcSid, then it was Sunset, Applejack, Rainbow, Pinkie, Rarity, Fluttershy, and back to Dr. OcSid. We all ordered our drinks, which was Apple Cider from a different city, and food. We were all silent because we're unsure what to say at that moment.

I cleared my throat, "Have you heard of my mother that is working in your company?" I asked.

He raised an eyebrow, "You mean Debra Night?" He wondered.

I nodded, "Yes, she made the 16 Gig Hard drive and Ram."

He snaps his fingers, "Ah! Now I remember, she is a very important asset to the company. I heard that she had a son, but I would of never imagine meeting his son that is the one millionth customer of the electronic store." He boomed.

"Yeah, what a coincidence." I smirked.

"So, who are these fine ladies you have here today?" He questioned.

"Sorry, about that." Sunset said, "My name is Sunset Shimmer and I'm currently his girlfriend."

"Name's Applejack." She said.

"My name is Rainbow Dash, nice to meet you." She greeted.

"Hi! I'm Pinkie Pie!" She cheered.

"H-Hello, m-my name is Rarity." She stuttered.

"I'm Fluttershy." She almost whispered.

"Nice to meet all of you." He acknowledged.

Then the food and drinks came in, which was pretty fast compared to other restaurants, I got a fried vegetable bowl, while everybody else got something else. I didn't make out the details of what they had because I was enjoying the tasty food that was melting into my mouth. This food was the best thing I have ever tasted. It took me back into when I was a kid, when my mother was serving her own... Cooked vegetable stew and other meals.

"Are you alright Zephyr?" Dr. OcSid asked.

I opened my eyes and realized that I was tearing up. I grabbed the napkin and wiped off the tears, "Y-Yeah, I'm fine, this food is delicious."

I eventually finished the meal and Dr. OcSid stood up, "I would like to have a word with you Zephyr."

I gulped the last of my water and followed him towards the restroom. I looked back to the girls, especially Sunset when we both went into the kitchen of the restaurant. We walked passed the staff and saw a Chief who had a patch that looked like a rat with a chief's hat holding a spoon. I didn't want to question the chief's taste about style, but why a rat patch? I internally shook it off when Dr. OcSid spoke.

"Ah, Chief Remy." Dr. OcSid told the man cooking the next meal.

"Yes?" He acknowledged our presence.

"This boy hear saw a vision when he ate your fried vegetable bowl." He explained as he tapped my shoulder with his cane.

"Did he?" Chief Remy stopped the stove and turned his attention to us, "What did you see?" He asked.

I sighed, "I saw my mother bringing me cooked vegetable items for lunch when I was a kid."

"You miss your mother don't you?" Dr. OcSid asked.

"If you haven't noticed, my father is off on missions and my mother is advancing her techniques to make a better future." I explained.

"So you miss your parent, that's the problem." Remy said taking off his hat. "Sometimes I have that feeling as well, advancing my cooking from Prance to Canterlot for my career, I had to go away from my family. So, young boy, I know what you're going through and I believe Dr. OcSid can help you with that." He smiled.

"What do you mean?" I asked and looked at Dr. OcSid.

Dr. OcSid looked at his watch, "Oh! Would you look at the time! I need to go on a business meeting."

"Wait! What did you mean you're going to help me?" I asked.

"Now, that's a surprise my friend." He smirked.

Dr. OcSid led me out of the kitchen and back to the table, where everybody was ready to go. I looked at Sunset and she looked concerned as I shrugged my shoulders.

"Now, you'll be taken home in a Limo. I hope you all had a nice time." He told everyone.

Rarity bowed, "Thank you for having us."

"Yeah the lunch was delicious." Rainbow commented.

"The Apple Cider was decent, but wasn't too bland." Applejack chirped.

"Love to talk to you more, sir." Fluttershy said.

"I would like to throw you a party next time!" Pinkie squealed.

"It was nice to meet you, sir." Sunset smiled.

Dr. OcSid faces me, "You got a keeper, Zephyr. Treat her nice."

I nodded, "I will." I grabbed Sunset's hand.

Dr. OcSid makes his leave while a butler leads us to the exit of the mall. Though some of the girls, including Sunset, were wondering what Dr. OcSid talked about with me. When Sunset asked me what happened back there and I told her that he led me to the Chief to have a nice conversation. It was basically the truth and I'm not worried about it. The only thing I'm worried for is the beach and the prom.

All of us saw the limo come in from the exit to pick us up. To my surprise, it was the same limo that I got in with mom. Everybody flooded into the limo and took our seats to get comfortable. I sat with Sunset and I leaned in to kiss her cheek, but she turned her head and our lips touched one another. We stayed like that for a while as our cheeks burned with embarrassment.

I pulled back and everyone went, "Ohhhhh!"

"I was trying to peck your cheek..." I chuckled nervously.

She lowered her head, "T-That's fine... I really don't mind the kiss... Thank you..."

"Y-Your welcome..." I said.

"Aw!! So romantic!!!" Rarity exclaimed.

"Hold your horses Rarity, I think they're getting it o-" Rainbow was cut off by a smack by Applejacks hat, "Ow!!"

"Like I said, you're not saying anything embarrassing than what is already happening." Applejack explained.

"She's right, you know." Fluttershy commented.

"Look at the cupcakes in the mini fridge!!" Pinkie cheered randomly.

As the group argued, Sunset and I look at one another, smiled and held hands as the limo driver closed the window so that he couldn't hear the arguing of our friends and took us home.

After that event in the mall, Sunset and I got ready to go to the beach. We were currently waiting in her house until Pinkie, yes Pinkie, picked us up in her new vehicle. We were currently cuddling and there was a knock on the door. Sunset, who was in my arms, slipped out and walked towards the entrance.

"Pinkie's early." I whimpered as Sunset's heat slowly seeped away.

She opened the door to find a girl who had purple hair with a pink strip highlight. She wore a skirt that matched her hair and a light blue shirt to make herself stand out. I wonder who this girl was, I've never seen her at Canterlot High before.

"Twilight!" Sunset cheered to hug her.

'So this is Twilight.' It thought.

"Hi Sunset, I was just surprised that I had time to spend with you, given my time schedule." She reminded.

I didn't make out what Twilight and Sunset were talking about, probably girl talk. They went inside and sat on the couch across from me. Twilight sat nervously and was fiddling with her thumbs, while Sunset happily sat next to her.

"Zephyr, this is Twilight and were going to talk about my particular past." Sunset stated.

My brow furrowed, 'She is going to help explain it? Was it too scaring that she couldn't explain it herself... Or is she secretly a lesbian...' I thought, but immediately shook off the thought of girl on girl action.

"Hello Zephyr, I've heard nothing but good things about you." Twilight beamed.

I sat up to give my full attention to them, "Same here, it's great to meet one of Sunset's friends."

Twilight's smile turned into a neutral expression, "Are you ready for the truth? What were about to reveal, better not break Sunset's heart. Do you Pinkie Promise to not break her heart."

"Twilight..." Sunset tried to protest.

"I promise." I replied quickly.

Twilight sighed and looked to Sunset and whispered something then faced me. She slightly smiled and took a deep breath, "We're not from this world at all."

".... What?" I was bewildered.

She sighed, "We are ponies from a world called Equestria, where there are mythical creatures, Pegasi, Unicorns, Earth Ponies and most of all, magic exists. I am a Princess of Friendship in Ponyville and my rulers are Princess Celestia and Princess Luna. They, including myself, are Alicorns, that have wings and horns."

I tried to take it in, but this information was being blocked by mere logic. I took a deep breath and breathed out as Sunset continued.

"I was a Unicorn student under the teachings of Princess Celestia, ruler of Equestria, but I became too ambitious for my own good. I abandoned Celestia's teachings and stole Twilight's Crown that was holding the element of magic. I went through to this world and took over the school as a... Bitch as they call it. Twilight and her friends were able to stop me with the power of friendship and even if I was down, Twilight brought me back up to reform myself. It worked, but the school still hated me for what I did. Another event happened where three Sirens, mythical creatures that can hypnotize anyone, tried to take over the school, but we stopped them and I earned more respect from the school. Though even to this day, some people still treat me like trash, but you came along to change that." Sunset explained.

I couldn't believe it... Is my girlfriend some kind of lunatic? Did Sunset's friend put her up for this? Was this a sick joke? I could tell if it was a joke, this was coming out of someone who held her past to herself. There is one thing I would like to do in order to believe in Twilight and Sunset.

I sighed as I stood up, "I am willing to believe this, when there is hard proof. I am not saying that I don't believe you, it's just a tough pill to swallow. The other thing though where Sunset wasn't likable, I can get past that because you are you and your past doesn't define who you are."

Sunset smiled, "Thank you Zephyr." She sniffed and glanced at Twilight.

She nodded, "We'll be happy to give you proof."

I nod as I got up to grab the bags for the trip for the beach. Though a lot of questions kept on popping into my head. 'If what Sunset is saying is true, then she is a Unicorn... In all honesty, I don't care who she is. She is still the same Sunset that I fell in love with at the Pizzeria.' I thought. I don't care what society says that it's wrong to date a pony. Sunset is smart, funny, beautiful and most of all she stole my heart. I do care about her past though, I have an understanding why she had to go through such an event.

"You ready to go?" Sunset asked getting me out of my train of thought.

I shook my head inwardly and nodded, "Do you have everything for the beach?"

She smiled, "Yep!"

"I forgot mine at Equestria, so it would be a good opportunity to show you hard evidence." Twilight pointed out.

I smirk, "Alright, let's go." I opened the door and we set off to Canterlot high.

Events Leading To Prom part II (Final)

View Online

-Sunset's point of view-

"Is the portal still opened?" I whispered.

"Positive." Twilight confirmed.

Twilight, Zephyr and I were walking towards Canterlot High. We called Pinkie to pick us up over there when we texted her again and she agreed with it. I don't know what Pinkie is going to do with our friends, but I hope it will preoccupy them. It might be a short visit, but I really wanted to show off my curves to Zephyr, once he believes me. During the whole time we were walking, he stayed silent, maybe to think about what Twilight and I had said.

We finally showed up to the statue with the mirrors and Zephyr didn't looked pleased. Though I gave him a smile and he sighed.

"What are you going to show me at the school yards?" He asked.

Twilight didn't say anything, but to only walk through the mirror to Equestria. I looked at Zephyr to see his face was expressionless and his jaw was wide open. I just giggled and held out my hand towards him, he was first hesitant, but he firmly grabbed it and we went through the mirror together.

When we got to the other side, all the feelings of fingers, toes and walking on two feet have disappeared. Naturally I stepped down on all fours to walk as a Unicorn again. Zephyr, however, walked on his two back hooves, like the human he was and I giggled in response. Then he fell forward on his face and grunted.

"I feel weird." He addressed.

My ear twitched when Twilight chuckled, "Well you're the first of your kind to show up in Equestria."

Zephyr tried to get up, but his legs went wobbly and fell again, but to be caught in my aura. I lifted him up into the air and turned him to where I could see him face to face. Zephyr's brown hair was now his coat and a nice really dark blue mane and tail. He was still my age, given his growth appearance, but still he was very handsome, whether or not he was stallion or human.

"This is so weird, but I kind of like it." He said.

I smiled and peck him on the cheek, "I'm glad you like it."

"So you're using magic?" He asked.

I nodded, "Yes, it's unicorn magic and you my love are an Earth Pony."

"Is that good?" He wondered.

I nuzzled his neck, "It doesn't matter who you are, as long as you are yourself, I will always love you."

I realized what I just said and got embarrassed immediately. My cheeks felt like they turned crimson red and I dropped Zephyr by accident because I lost my concentration. I didn't want to confess like that way, but I don't regret saying it at all.

He blushed, "I love you too Sunset."

'Oh my gosh!' I screamed internally. I wanted to say what I felt about him for so long and now since he believed my past, he admitted it. I levitate him into the air as I turned around to take him back to Canterlot High. He didn't say anything, however, Twilight tried to say something, but it was too late.

Once we got to the other side, Zephyr and I flew into the air to only land on top of each other. I felt pain subside because I landed on Zephyr. At first, my vision was blurry, but when I blinked, I was staring right at Zephyr's pants. To be accurate, my face was against his crotch. I felt a breeze, that coming from the ground and went in-between my legs. I blush immediately. Zephyr and I were doing the position sixty-nine while we have our clothes on. I roll off of Zephyr, to my right, proceed to get up and he did the same.

"So... That happened..." Zephyr babbled.

"Yeah... It did." I smiled and looked at his direction.

We giggled and eventually we laughed the situation off of our shoulders. I look at the mirror as Twilight emerges from Equestria. She didn't look too happy, she had her bag with her and a few scrolls on her person. Now that I thought about it, she was trying to say something to me before I carried Zephyr back to Canterlot High.

"Why did you go back all of a sudden?" She asked.

"Love works in mysterious ways." Zephyr answered.

I giggled, "So what did you want to talk about Twilight?"

"I have a new song we can play while were in the car." She said revealing a scroll.

I got a hold of the scroll, opened it to read the contents, "That's great!"

"I thought Pinkie is going to drive." He broke in.

"YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THAT!!!" Pinkie shouted from behind.

"GAH!!" Twilight, Zephyr and I jumped in the air while the color of our white faces slowly return to normal.

"P-Pinkie!" Twilight shouted, "You almost gave us a heart attack."

Pinkie laughed, "Sorry, I couldn't resist."

I sighed, "So if you're not driving, then who is?"

Pinkie smiled, "Maud is driving! She got her drivers licence about a month ago!"

Since we've brought our bags to the mirror, we immediately set out for the beach. It was slightly a far trip, but we had a song to pass the time. The vehicle that we were in was an RV, surprisingly. I asked Maud about how she got an RV and told me that she won it in a contest. Very weird, but I shrug it off so I could hang out with my friends.

I glance at Rainbow, who was looking at the lyrics of Twilight's song and she smiled, "I'm actually impressed that you made this... Did the other me help you?" She started to tune her guitar while she was staring at her.

Twilight shook her head, "No, I know all of you so well that I just knew how to write it out so perfectly." She looks to Applejack who was tuning her bass.

"I actually like the song that allows us to sing our parts, kind of like our personalities." She stated.

"Yep!" Pinkie chirped as she was tapping her drums, "I like it a lot!"

Fluttershy nodded, "I agree, Twilight's song is pretty good."

"I think it's divine." Rarity chips in as she was finishing her nails.

"I would like to hear it too, if you guys don't mine." Zephyr called from the front seat of the RV.

I smiled, "I just hope that Maud won't be annoyed by our music."

Maud respond, "I never get annoyed, only when someone steals boulder." She pet her 'boulder' on the dashboard of the RV.

"So, I guess were all set?" I asked everybody.

We all nodded and Twilight started to play on Rarity's keyboard.


[Twilight Sparkle]
Nothin' stays the same for long
But when it changes doesn't mean it's gone
Time will always get away
As it leaves behind another day

Things may come and things may go
Some go fast and some go slow
Few things last, that's all I know
But friendship carries on through the ages

[Rarity and Fluttershy]
Things may come and things may go
Some go fast and some go slow
Few things last, that's all I know
But friendship carries on through the ages

[Rainbow Dash]
Been around for a long time
Rockin' out hard 'cause I'm in my prime
Maybe it'll change further down the line
But my friendship carries on through the ages

Every single style has somethin'
Different it can say
There's nothin' wrong with being unique
And special in your own way

[Pinkie Pie]
Maybe you wanna be a pop star
Get your fifteen minutes of fame, wha, ah! Ah, oh!
That won't last forever
But friendship remains the same, ah-oh, oh!

[The Rainbooms sans Sunset Shimmer]
Things may come and things may go
Some go fast and some go slow
Few things last, that's all I know
But friendship carries on through the ages

[The Rainbooms]
Things may come and things may go
Some go fast and some go slow
Few things last, that's all I know
But friendship carries on through the ages
Ooohhh, oh, carries on......

Once the music stopped, Zephyr was clapping and I could of sworn that I saw Maud smile just a bit. We all looked to our right and the ocean was seen right next to us.

"We're here." Maud observed.

"Bet you can't wait to see your girlfriend in her bikini?" Rainbow smirked.

"Rainbow..." I whined.

"You hush now, Dash." Applejack demanded.

"Fine." She grumbled.

-Zephyr's point of view-

The girls went to get changed while I got into my trunks in the male changing room. It wasn't anything special, it was just the same pair of swim trunks that I got when I was in Appleloosa. After I got changed, I went back to the RV to get three umbrella's, cooler and towels of everybody's symbols. I walked to the beach and picked a spot that was empty. I set up the umbrella's, towels were laid down, and suntan lotion was on the cooler. I proceed to spray myself with suntan as I saw the group of women in their bikini/bathing suit.

From the right, Maud, Rarity, and Fluttershy were wearing one piece bathing suit that had their favorite colors, grey, white and pink. Rainbow, Applejack, and Twilight were wearing a two piece bikini, with their favorite colors as well, rainbow, orange and purple. Pinkie for some reason has disappeared, but that didn't worry me one bit. When the group dispersed, Sunset was right behind them and my heart was beating at the speed of Pinkie's drums playing a song. She had an orange bikini with two different color stripes that made her stand out.

"Wow." I was starstruck to say anything else.

I saw her lie down on her own towel, that was right next to mine, and she untied her bikini to expose her curvaceous back. I felt my face burn up when she handed me the liquid suntan lotion. She looks at me with an unsure look. I gulped, 'Man up, this is your moment with her.' I thought.

She slightly blushed, "You going to stare or are you going to apply suntan lotion for me?"

I nodded, "Alright." I squirted the lotion onto my hand and rubbed my palms together.

I took a deep breath and touched her back. She slightly moaned out because of how cold the lotion was. This didn't help my member to slowly get aroused. Thankfully, I was wearing slightly baggy trousers so it wouldn't be noticeable, but I was still embarrassed. I continuously rub the lotion onto her back and watched myself to not get any lower to her butt and sides.

"Could you do the sides for me as well?" She asked.

I gulped, "L-let me get more lotion."

Luckily the girls already left to play in the water and didn't notice us. I put more lotion on my hands and did her sides, but slipped my hands on her side breast's. She yelped as bit, but I continued from the top of her neck, back and lower back.

"Lower..." She cooed.

Now my hands are getting shaky because of how she said 'lower.' I breathing harder and slowly complied. The only thing I did was I went to the border of the bikini and applied the lotion there. After that I wiped my hands with an extra towel and tie her bikini back into place. Just to make sure there isn't any 'mishaps', I double knot the tie.

"T-There, how are you feeling?" I stuttered.

"You should massage my back often." She informed.

I scratch the back on my head, "You think so?"

She nods, "Yes, we should have a session at my house or yours, depending." She winked.

My heart is taking a beating of how cute her hints are about the 'session'. I sighed, "L-Lets have some fun shall we?" I stagger.

She grabs my hand and I take her to the shore.

It was getting late and we were all pretty tired from the fun times we had. Volley ball on the shore, grilled vegetables for lunch, a nice stroll with Sunset as the sun sets in the horizon.... Did I just make a pun? Anyway, we packed our stuff and headed back to Canterlot in about an hour or two. I really didn't have the time to think about the time because I was in a deep conversation with Sunset and the Rainbooms.

Maud dropped us off at our apartments, we said goodbye to one another and they drove off to end their day. Twilight walked back to Canterlot High so that she can return to Equestria and we waved good-bye. I stretched my body to pick up the bags that we had and we headed to my apartment.

"I just need to drop off my stuff real quick." Sunset announced.

"Alright, I'll leave the door unlocked for you." I said.

I went inside to set my clothes into the washer and started the machine. I got into the bathroom, turned on the shower, took off my sandy clothes and stepped inside. As I washed myself, I hear a knock on the bathroom door.

"Zephyr?" It was Sunset.

At first I was silent, but spoke, "Yeah?" I croaked.

I hear her come into the bathroom and closed the door. Thankfully the curtain wasn't see through. "I accidentally locked myself out of the house. The landlord doesn't come back until the morning." She explained.

"T-That's unfortunate." I stated, "Do you want to stay here for tonight?" I offered.

Then I hear a zipper being unzipped and my breathing got heavier as my heart began to beat faster than before. I hear the ruffle of clothing coming from the other side of the curtain.

"I would like that a lot." She said.

"G-Great... I'll take the couch and you can take the bed." I stuttered, trying not to think what is going on.

I swear my hearing was getting better because I hear something unhooking and I just imagine Sunset's breasts. 'Stupid brain!' I shouted internally. I looked at my crotch and it was already aroused. 'You're not helping either!' I internally complained to my organ.

"I don't think, I would allow that. I think we can share." She whispered.

"W-What do you mean?" I asked knowing what will happen.

I saw her hand grab the curtain and slowly reveals herself in front of me. My eyes went wide when I saw Sunset nude. I gulped as my cheeks were burning hot and Sunset was no exception. She covered her breasts with her right arm and her private area with her left. Her eyes go down and her eyes widen at my aroused member.

"P-Please don't make this harder than it has to be." She pouted.

She steps in to let the water soak her hair, I just stand there to memorize all of her curves. She wore a bikini when we were at the beach, but this is taking it to a whole new level. She suddenly grabbed my hand to grab the soap. I look at her eyes and she nods. 'Holy shit... She wants me to wash her!' I thought. Even though I was already done cleaning myself, I couldn't miss the opportunity to wash my own girlfriend. This was the first time that this was happening and I couldn't help, but smile.

I rubbed the soap into my hands and massaged Sunset's delicate skin. First was the shoulders, down the back, to the hips and to her legs. I glanced up to catch a glimpse of her nethers, she turned around to face me and I stared at her full naked glory. Her breasts showed her erect nipples, her slim stomach let the water drip down to her other lips were winking at me. 'She's horny.' I thought. I got back to my feet and stared at her aqua eyes.

"You look beautiful." I blurted.

She look to the side, "N-No... I'm not."

I place my hand on her chin and moved her head to me, "You are. No matter what they say, you are amazing. I love you Sunset." I explained.

I saw tears streaming down her cheek, "I love you too Zephyr." She sniffed.

I leaned in as Sunset did the same and our lips touched one another. She prod her tongue to get access into my mouth and I allowed her to. She moaned as our tongue intertwine with one another. Sunset puts her hand around my torso and squeezed my body with hers. Her skin rubbed against my erection, her breast and nipples rubbed against my chest. My hands go towards her butt and my palms gently squeezed her cheeks. She squeaked, and moaned in pleasure. I felt her right hand touch my staff and I grunted through her mouth. We released our tongues to look at one another. I saw her eyes were half way closed as she reached to turn off the shower with her other hand.

Sunset leaned in to my ear, "I want you..." She moaned.

I smiled and bend down to only pick her up bridal style. She yelped, but giggled as I carried her to my room. I opened the door and walked to my room. I toss Sunset to the bed, closed and locked the door. I turned to see Sunset exposing her wet body to me.

"Warm me up before I get cold." She motioned.

I jump towards my bed and all the festivities were a blur. Sunset and I made pure love as we pleasured one another. I didn't know how long the night would last, but I didn't want to end.

I awoke on my bed to feel another source of warmth right next to me. The realization got to me, Sunset and I made out in the shower while naked, we made love in my room and now she was sleeping next to me. The best thing is that later tonight is the prom. I got up from the bed, covered Sunset with another blanket and got dressed. I open my closet to look at my dress shirt that dad got me at Las Pegasus. I went out of my bedroom and went to the kitchen to cook Sunset breakfast. Once it was finished, I carried her plate, a TV table under my arm and her orange juice into my room. I place the drink on the night stand and set up the table to set the plate and drink on top.

I leaned in towards Sunset to peck on her lips. She mumbled something, but I put my hand under the sheets to touch her hip and slowly go up the side of her body. Her eyes opened and once she saw me, Sunset gasped when she laid her eyes upon her breakfast. Scrambled eggs, sliced pairs, a granola bar and orange juice.

"Good morning." I said.

"Good morning." She purred.

She sat up and the blankets exposed her body. Immediately my staff stood in attention and Sunset noticed. She smiled as she ate her breakfast.

"I see someone is ready to scramble me this morning." She said as she ate the eggs.

Then I hear a knock on the door, "Who could that be at 7:00? It's not even Monday for the newspaper." I said.

"You go ahead and answer that. I'll get dressed." She said finishing her breakfast.

I smirked, "Your clothes are in the bathroom."

She blushed, "Right... C-can you carry me?" She asked.

I smiled and moved the table out of the way to pick her up like I did last night. She wrapped her arm around my shoulder and kissed me on the lips.

"Do you know I love you?" I asked.

"Yes, yes I do." She smiled, "I love you too."

I carried her to the bathroom and set her down onto her feet. She got to the pile of mixed clothes and grabbed her own clothing. I grabbed the door knob and closed it behind me.

"Lock it in case it's a guest." I explained.

"Alright." She said from the other side and locked the door.

I sighed as I when to the front door to open it. When I opened it, I saw a women in a suit and had a name tag that said 'Landlord.'

"Hi, my name is Miss Narval. I'm the Landlord of this apartment complex." She introduced herself, holding out her hand.

"My name is Zephyr." I said shaking her hand.

"I suppose that Sunset Shimmer is here with you?" She asked.

"She's in the bathroom right now." I told her.

"Ah, then give this to her when she is finished." Narval informed me by giving Sunset's keys.

"She gave me a letter at my door step that told me that her keys were on the kitchen table and would be at Zephyr Nights apartment. So I did what she asked for and I shall excuse myself." She explains and leaves.

"Thank you." I told her as she made her way towards the stairs.

I look to my left, where the mail box was, to find a letter inside. I grab the letter, close the door behind me and proceed to open the letter to read the contents.

Dear Zephyr,

Tonight, when you get back home from your prom, you'll get to see my gift at your door step. I pulled some strings here and there to make your day perfect.

From your new buddy,

Dr. OcSid

All that Sunset and I did the rest of the morning/afternoon was naked cuddling and making love to one another. Though it had to end because the Prom was just in the matter of hours. We got dressed into our outfits and looked at each other. Sunset was wearing a light blue dress with a red veil under it. She wore blue leggings as well that complimented the dress. It was a simple dress and I liked how it was. I was wearing just a collar buttoned up shirt with dress pants, dress shoes and a belt.

We were currently outside the apartments and I offered my arm, "May we walk to the Prom, my love?" I asked.

She smiled, "Why of course." She pecked my cheek and wrapped her arm with mine.

The walk to the school was short and the Prom already started. We saw several people flowing into the gym. When we went inside the gym, the music was roaring through the interior as everyone was dancing their butts off. I scanned the tables and finally saw Sunset's friend gathered at one table with two chairs available. I saw Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, and Rarity wearing an assortment of dresses that were simple just like Sunset's.

"Well would you look at that." Applejack announced us.

"You look so romantic." Rarity commented.

"Thanks." Sunset said.

"I-I like your suit, Zephyr." Fluttershy complemented.

"Hey, you stealing Zephyr away from Sunset?" Rainbow claimed.

"W-W-What??!!" Fluttershy stammered.

Sunset chuckled, "It's fine Fluttershy, Rainbow's just pulling your leg."

She sighed in relief, "Rainbow, honestly..." She huffed.

Rainbow was silent, but Pinkie spoke up, "I brought Vinyl Scratch to be our DJ for the Prom. Principle Celestia said it would be a great idea for her to be DJ for tonight!" She explained.

I glance around the gym, I spotted the punch table and some pastries. Though when I saw the punch, I saw several people were staring at us, particularly Sunset. Several of the people were signalling me to walk to them. 'Alright I need to talk to them, this needs to stop.' I thought.

"Hey Sunset, I'm going to get some punch and pastries." I told her.

She took a seat and smiled, "That's fine, a little bit of sugar never hurts, especially since we went to the beach yesterday."

I nodded and walked towards the punch table, trying to keep an open mind. There was the two boys that are in the same gym class as I , but there were three girls that were familiar, but weren't in my class. One girl was wearing a wizard's hat and a light blue dress that had stars all over, she had white hair with light blue highlights. The second girl and the third girl were wearing the same dress, but their hair color was different, blonde and purplish pink to be exact.

"So you're the guy who's dating Sunset?" The wizard hat girl asked.

"That's right. What of it?" I wondered.

"The name is Trixie and these are my... friends. Snips, Snails, Fuchsia and Lavender." She introduced them to me.

I nod as I grab two plates and two cups, "What did you want?"

The blond one, Lavender, spoke, "We heard that you're being mind controlled by Sunset, but our boys here have confirmed that this isn't true."

Trixie cleared her throat, "We now know that you are dating her because you actually love that... Demon."

I stopped when she said that and stared at her with the look saying 'What did you say, bitch?' I saw her smile at my reaction and the group just snickered.

I calm myself down just a bit, "What do you mean, demon?" I grit my teeth.

Fuchsia laughed, "You mean you don't know?"

"I guess he doesn't know." Snips commented.

"Sunset destroyed the entrance of the school, tried to mind control us to take over another world. She is a different being from another world." Trixie explained.

"She isn't like that. I don't care about her past, what I care about is that she is being herself and I love her for that." I said.

"So you love her because you pity her?" Lavender asked.

I was about to say something , but I heard something behind me, "It's not because he pity's me." Said a voice. I look behind me to see Sunset unhappy.

"Oh look, its the demon bitch." Trixie commented.

"Look's like she is here to defend her clueless boyfriend." Lavender claimed.

My hands turn into a fist and I prevented myself to punch one of them, but when I saw to Sunset, she was getting upset. Oh, hell no!

"Why can't you just let this go?" I asked them all.

They all laughed, "We here to just to tell the truth about what happened."

"She saved you when the Dazzlings mind controlled everyone!" I shouted.

"What if that was a cover up to make her evil again?!" Trixie accused.

I look to where Sunset was and I saw her running away into the school. I glance at Sunset's friend and they went towards my direction.

"Go get her, Zephyr!" Applejack yelled.

I nodded, "Right!" I ran out of the gym to look for Sunset.

I looked everywhere, the nurses office, the classrooms... The girls locker room and bathroom, and where our lockers are. I look at the clock and it was around ten minutes till midnight. 'Where else has she gone?' I asked myself internally. Then it came to me, Sunset has access to the office and an assortment of keys. Then it came to me: the roof. Why didn't I think of it before? It was probably the only secluded area that she would be at.

I found the stairs leading to the roof, that was hidden behind the janitors closet. I found the door by accident when I was getting a mop from here to clean the gym. Though I didn't know that it led to the roof of the school. I ran up the stairs, but the tip of my foot didn't catch the stair and I fell onto my shins. The stinging sensation didn't stop when I slowly slid down the stairs on my shins. I may have scratched them, but despite the pain, I got up to my feet and continued to hobble towards the roof.

I lightly opened the door, but the wind blew to where I almost fell back down the stairs. I fully opened the door and closed it softly, I hid myself behind the door and I saw Sunset standing there. I didn't know what was going to happen, but when I heard her sing all of a sudden, I kept my eye on her.


[Sunset Shimmer]

Was all I desired (I desired, I desired)
But all that grew inside me
Was the darkness I acquired

When I began to fall
And I lost the path ahead
That's when your friendship found me
And it lifted me instead

Like a phoenix burning bright
In the sky
I'll show there's another side to me
You can't deny

I may not know what the future holds
But hear me when I say
That my past does not define me
'Cause my past is not today

Is what I believed
Would be the only way
To set me free

But when it disappeared
And I found myself alone
That's when you came and got me
And it felt like I was home

Like a phoenix burning bright
In the sky
I'll show there's another side to me
You can't deny

I may not know what the future holds
But hear me when I say
That my past does not define me
'Cause my past is not today

When Sunset stopped singing, her transformation ended and she slowly started to fall down to the ground. I sprint towards her and caught her in my arms to give her a big hug. At first she was surprised that I came out of nowhere, but I felt her head resting against my shoulder and she was squeezing me.

"I know that your past is not today. Sunset, no matter who you are, I will always love you." I whispered in her ear.

I felt water landing on my cheek and I felt my shoulder being soaked, but I didn't care about that. I got my right hand and stroked her hair.

"I-I'm so glad I met you..." She sobbed.

"I'm glad that I met you too." I said.

Sunset moves her head to face mine and I smile. She was crying because she is happy, not because she was upset. With my left hand, I wiped off Sunset's tears away gently.

"I love you Sunset." I told her.

"I love you too, Zephyr." She sniffed.

We stare at each others eyes, passionate about one another, Sunset closes her eyes and leans in. I lean in and our lips meet once my eyes were closed. My heart beat fluttered happily when our tongues intertwined and our saliva mixing was addicting. We pulled out to breathe fresh air and Sunset was smiling.

"Let's make our future a reality." She smiled.

I nodded, "Yes, let's."

Epilogue: After the Prom

View Online

-Zephyr's point of view-

After the Prom, Sunset and I went back to our apartments to only find two new vehicles parked in front. One was a military jeep and the other was a limo. Sunset and I were confused on what was going on, we tried to ignore it, but someone got out of the military vehicle. It was night time, around 1:30 in the morning and the street lights illuminated the person. This person was none other than my father. He was in his uniform and was standing there waving at me in particular. Another person came out of the limo, it was my mother, she came out and stood next to Dad. She was in her suit that she wore for work, she smiled at Dad, looked at me and waved.

"Is that your parents?" Sunset asked.

It just donned on me: 'I pulled some strings here and there to make your day perfect.' I thought about that sentence of the letter that Dr. OcSid sent me. Then I remembered what Chief Remy said before we parted ways, 'I believe Dr. OcSid can help you with that.' Dr. OcSid, you son of a gun! You got my parents to get back together to meet me! It has been ten years since I saw them together and I couldn't hold back my tears and whimpering.

"D-Dad... Mom..." I gasped.

I felt Sunset's hand on my shoulder and I turn my head, "Go ahead, Zephyr. I'll catch up."

I nodded and without any other words, I sprint towards them and they opened their arms as I shouted, "Mom! Dad!" I got hugged by both of them, their warm bodies were proof enough that they were here and this wasn't a dream.

-Twilight's point of view-

I was reorganizing my library in the castle catacombs when I heard a similar vibration coming from the shelf.

"Oops, I put you there again." Thought out loud.

I levitated the book and proceed to open it. I found a new entry that Sunset has wrote. Before I could read it though, a familiar prankster suddenly pops in.

"Discord, why are you here?" I asked.

"Aw, does one not have a day off? I just wanted to see what caused my hair to tinkle all over." He said snatching the book, "I found out that it was this book that you use to communicate to Sunset Shimmer."

"Give that back!" I demanded. I really didn't have time for his antics.

He got his paw to shut my lips, "Hush now, I just wanted to see the new entry. Something has been getting my chaos magic in a fritz because of it."

"Really? Something that has bothered THE Discord?" I asked.

He nodded as he read the contents that I haven't read. He suddenly gasps, but smirks and starts to chuckle.

"What?" I wondered as he laughed like I've never seen before.

He was bouncing around the walls, rolling and melting into the crystal floor.... Ew... I could hear the echos of his laughter filling the castle that shook a little. I was about to say something, but I could see that he was laughing because it's funny. What was is that entry that would make him laugh so hard? Finally he wipes off the tears into a tea cup and drinks it.

I sighed, "What is so funny Discord?"

He handed me the book, "Go ahead and read it for yourself."

I sighed at his antics and proceed to read the entry out loud:

Dear Twilight,

After an eventful Prom, Zephyr and I walked back to our apartment to find that his parents have come back from their work thanks to Dr. OcSid. He pulled the strings to bring Zephyr's mother and father together to meet up with him after so long. I am really happy for him and now that I think about it, I'll have to visit Equestria to talk to my folks as well.

Your friend,

Sunset Shimmer

"What's so funny about that? Zephyr got to meet up with his parents, so what made you laugh about this whole mess?" I asked.

"Oh Twilight. I know that your friend got to meet up with his parents is touching, but did you see who did it?" He said.

I raise an eyebrow, "Dr. OcSid?"

"Yes, him. Do you know who he is?"

"He is the main executive of his Industry." I stated.

"Wow! How can you be this dense?! He really has everyone under his thumb." He exclaimed.

"What do you mean?" I wondered.

He snaps his fingers and a white board appears in behind him. He gets a marker and writes the following word.

Dr. OcSid

"Do you see it yet?" He asked.

I shook my head, "I don't know."

He sighs, "Hold on to your flanks." He gets the marker and proceeds to write his name under it, but then it hits me. 'How did I not notice it before?' I thought. I read the board again to make sure I wasn't hallucinating.

Dr. OcSid


diScO .rD

Finally Discord spoke, "I believe we've found the other me in that world you visit. I know that he isn't evil, but just by the look on the book that has his name printed on that page gives me goosebumps." He stated as he melted in a green like ooze, but was thicker than the Smooze.

"What do we do now?" I asked him.

"I'd say leave it be, but that's my opinion. What will you do with this information?" He wondered.

What should I do for this information? It is information that everypony needs to know. Though it isn't like Dr. OcSid's evil right? I can't even ponder how he owns an industry that is so popular. I wonder is Sunset know about it.

Despite my internal war, I sighed, "We'll keep it our secret until somepony asks." I advised.

Discord was currently smoking a bubble out of a pipe and he held out this paw, "Call it a Pinkie Promise?" He smirked.

I raised my hoof up to his paw and we shook, "I Pinkie Promise, Cross My Heart, Hope to Fly, Stick a Cupcake in my Eye."
