Prologue: Goodbye Earth

View Online

Somewhere in The United Kingdom was a town called Romsey, in this town was a family of six. There were Diana and John the Parents, their oldest son Scott, their two daughters Rebecca and Kerry, and their youngest son Sam. Scott was the oldest at the age of 22, Rebecca and Kerry where born at the same time so they were both 16 and Sam was the youngest at the age of 10.

Diana and John met during their final year of college. It was love at first sight and they got married a few years later. On their honeymoon, they decided to do it and have kids. They loved their children very dearly and always spent time with them. Until Scott went off to university and Rebecca and Kerry off to college leaving them with Sam.

Then one day, when Sam was nine years old, John passed away after he had grown sick. Before he passed away he told his youngest son to fight on and be strong. After that, it was only Sam and Diana in their house.

Over the months, Sam promised to stay by his mother’s side until the day she would join John. Diana could only hug her son for that statement. However, that day would come sooner than they thought. Then one day, Diana read on the news that a new disease was spreading around the world turning people into animals, it was hard to believe but it was true. The news reporter even had fox ears to prove it.

Then one day when Sam was ten years old, it happened.

Sam came downstairs ready for breakfast. He greeted his mother in the kitchen who had placed a plate of pancakes on the table. Sam hugged his mother and sat at the table and started to eat the pancakes. As he ate, Diana suddenly felt dizzy, she went upstairs to the bathroom, and a few minutes later, screamed.

Sam jumped at her scream, he quickly finished his breakfast, and ran upstairs to check on his mother.

“Mum?!” he asked, only to go silent when Diana turned to look at him with a patch of grey fur on the top of her breasts. The transformation from human to animal happened over a week, and Sam and Diana dreaded the final day that Diana would be a donkey.

Monday, her ears started to become pointy as fur slowly grew over her body and a beginning of a tail started to grow. Tuesday, her ears had grown into donkey ears as her nose swollen and her tail grew longer. Wednesday, her hands became stiff and morph into hooves and her teeth became blockier. Thursday, fur had covered her body about from her feet and face. Friday, Diana had grown, and she couldn’t get into any of her clothes, as her feet started to morph into hooves too. Saturday, Diana was almost a donkey, she still had her human head left. Sam had been comforting her the whole time she’s been changing, but he was the one who need comfort too. It felt weird to be nuzzled by his mother, but she couldn’t hug him or anything otherwise she would.

Diana made Sam look into her eyes, “Sweetheart, no matter what happens to me, please do me a favour and don’t feel sad, be strong and I’ll always love you no matter what,” she said, as Sam broke down into tears and hugged his mother’s thick furry neck.

Sunday, the dreaded day had come. Sam didn’t sleep at all last night. He went downstairs and saw his mother standing in the middle of the living room. However, she had a donkey face, she had completely changed.

“Mum?” Sam asked to see if she was still herself, but Diana didn’t respond. She was no one, and in her place was a full-grown jenny.

Sam sighed, as tear leaked from his eyes, he then decided to let the jenny out. He made her follow him with some carrots and opened the front door, the Jenny wondered out once he placed the carrots on the ground.

Sam just sat on his couch in the living room, thinking of what to do now. He had no phone to call his family, but he assumed that they were turned into animals as well. After sitting there for about thirty minutes, Sam made a decision.

He packed up his things in his backpack and headed out of town and into the forest that was near his hometown.

“I’ve seen Bear Grills,” he said to his little chameleon plush, “even though it’s fake.” This was a thing Sam would often did, he would talk to himself out loud to make sure he would wouldn’t go insane. Sometimes he would have a plush toy with him, or he would talk to his imaginary friend, when his others weren’t around.

Sam soon entered the forest, as the time was nearly lunchtime by the time he had gotten into the forest, he found a tree to lay against and stopped to have a lunch break. Waking for so long made his feet hurt so after lunch, he had a little nap. By the time he woke up, he noticed that he had slept for a long time, as the sun was starting to set.

Sam assumed that it was maybe four or five o’clock, so he had to find somewhere to sleep for the night. After walking for about an hours or so, he found a cave.

“I hope it’s empty,” he remarked nervously. But he was wrong.

In the cave, snoring could be heard. Sam quietly crept in, he knew that this cave used to be empty, as he saw two bears sleeping, and there where no bears in this forest. Sam thought that the bears where a couple that were turned into bears. Judging by the bags, and tore up clothes, these two were college students recently turned into bears.

He noticed that the cave went onward, so he snuck around the bears as quietly as he could. Once getting pass the bears, he breathed a silent sigh of relief. And then accidently kicked a rock. He heard movement from behind him, Sam slowly looked behind himself as saw the two bears slowly move to face him.

Sam sighed, “Son of a…”

The bears growl as Sam made a run for it, running deeper into the cave. Sam wasn’t a good runner and the bears caught up with him. But like a dog in water, if Sam saw something he would keep running. And something he did see, the cave seemed to get lighter.

Soon Sam came to an opening, were light came from a hole in the ceiling, and there was a giant pool of water. He came to the edge of the pool and looked into the water. Then heard the bears from behind him, he wanted to run, but the bears blocked him.

Sam felt scared, as the bears came closer. One stood up on it’s back paws, this caused Sam to walked back and fall into the pool. Now Sam wasn’t the best swimmer but have a rucksack that was clipped to him, dragged him down to the seem to be bottomless lake. Sam was running out of oxygen, as he tried to unclip himself. But he couldn’t. His vision started to fade as he struggled to hold his breathe any longer. But just he was about to drown, he floated down into a giant hand. Sam gave look up before everything turned to black.

Sam suddenly gasped for air, breathing heavily as he spat out water that had entered his lungs. He then looked around, he saw that he was in the opening, but it looked different. For one thing, the pool was bluer, and the was greenery around the pool. Sam was a little confused.

“What happened?” he asked himself.

“I saved you,” said a voice, Sam jumped as he wasn’t expecting a reply.

Sam looked around but he couldn’t see who the voice belonged to. “Is anyone there?” Sam asked. Then suddenly, a holographic projection appeared in front of Sam. The hologram showed a figure that was silver and red, and looked a little like Iron man.

“I am a technorganic being known as Ultraman,” he said, “I come for a far away planet that has higher technology than you earthlings, and we used our technology to upgrade us to robotic forms possessed by the light from our Plasma Spark. And I was the one that save you before you drowned.”

Sam was taking aback, “Urm… thanks,” was all he could say.

“But unfortunately, I wasn’t appeal to save you fully,” Ultraman said, “so I have given you my light to live once more.”

“Say what now?” Sam said as he then followed where the projection was coming from, he looked down at his chest, and pulled down his shirt to see a light on his chest. “Ok, now I’m iron man.”

“Because I have given you my light, you can dawn my suit,” Ultraman said as the holographic projection faded. All of a sudden, Sam felt his body get covered by the suit. “You can call upon the Ultrasuit by said ‘Ultrasuit on’.”

Sam was so shocked he didn’t what to do, so he called out, “Ultrasuit off,” and the suit retracted into the colour timer on his chest.

“As I have mentally bonded to you, you can hear me in your head,” Ultraman said.

“Now, I need to know where I am,” Sam said out loud. He saw an exit, grabbed his things, and made his way out. He walked through a tunnel until he came out into a forest under the light of the moon. “Wow,” Sam said, as he made his way through the forest and came to a little cottage on the outside to the forest, the cottage led all the way to a small town. Sam walked up the path to the little cottage and saw that the lights were still on. He was about to knock when his hand stopped just before the hitting the door.

“Why did you halt?” Ultraman asked.

“I have Asperger’s,” Sam replied, and he told him what he can’t and can do, “I can’t ask for help or anything like that.”

“Well, I won’t press you on to do something you don’t want to do,” Ultraman said, “so I won’t bother you.”

Sam then decided to sleep on the doorstep that night, and hopefully inside would see him in the morning. Before Sam closed his eyes to sleep, he looked to the sky. “Goodnight mum,” he said as a tear falls from his eye. Just as he closed his eyes a went to sleep, the door opened, and a calm smoothing voice spoke.

“What is this at my door? Oh the poor thing must be cold.” Then the one to voice belong to picked up Sam and took him inside.

In the cottage above the small town, lived a yellow pegasus, named Fluttershy. Fluttershy had cream fur, light pink mane, and tails, three butterflies on each of the side of her flanks, and tear eyes. She had just put all her animal friends asleep and was happy that her animals were sound asleep and having sweet dreams. She was about to turn in for the night, when she heard a thud on her door.

“I wonder who that can be as this time of night,” she said to herself as she opened the door, “Hello?” she asked, no one was there.

She looked around, thinking it might have been a bat hitting her door. She shrugged and was about to shut the door, until she looked down to see Sam curled up on her doorstep.

“What is this at my door? Oh the poor thing must be cold.” Then she picked up Sam and took him inside. Fluttershy flew over to her couch and lay Sam down gently on it. She then felt his skin, and it felt cold.

“Poor little creature,” she remarked as she made a hot water bottle and put it on his head, “how did you get here? I’ve never seen a creature like you before.”

Fluttershy continued to watch him for as long as she could, she shortly realized the time. “Oh my, it’s getting rather late,” she said. She was about to trot to her room, but then thought about Sam. “If he wakes up and I’m not their to greet him, he might get confused and scared,” she thought, “I’ll take him with me to bed, my fur and body warmth might help him in warming up.”

She picked him up and wrapped him in her wings, as she walked to her room. She carefully place him on her bed, then climbed in on the other side. She pulled the covers up and wrapped him in a hug. She kissed his forehead and whispered, “Goodnight little one.”

Sam, who had heard Fluttershy said goodnight, thought it was his mother, and replied, “Goodnight mum.” Fluttershy was shocked by this but then just smiled as she snuggled him closer.

Sam found himself in a dark landscape, that seemed to go on forever. He felt a little uneasy, then his saw his mother, just standing there. He ran to her.

“Mum!” She said as he cried into her chest, “I thought I’d lost you.” Sam waited for her to wrap her arms around him and hug him.

But Diana didn’t move. She didn’t say anything. Sam looked up to her face, as was horrified that her left half of her face was black with a red eye, and her ‘corrupted’ side of her mouth was also red and dripping blood from it.

Sam backed up slowly, but Diana grabbed him and held him still, as her left arm turned black and corrupted as her nails turned neo red and sharpened into claws. “What’s wrong Honey?” she said, her voice was a mixture of her own and a twisted and deepened version of her voices.

Tears streamed down Sam’s face, he was too scared. Then a three-clawed hand shot out her stomach and grabbed his face.

The next morning, Sam awoke screaming and painting. He looked around, due to not wearing his glasses, he couldn’t see very well, but he thought he was back in his bedroom as he got his breath under control, he breathed a sigh of relief, thinking that it was all a dream. He managed to see his classes, he put them on, but then his smile faded as he now saw that the room wasn’t his.

Fluttershy had woke up before him and was downstairs making breakfast from her animal friends. Once she was done, she smiled, “I wonder if that little one is awake yet?” she said to herself, when she heard a scream come from her room, she started to make her way up the stairs to check on Sam.

Sam heard someone coming upstairs and began to panic, in reflex, he dove up the covers and didn’t dare make a sound. Fluttershy saw that Sam was under the covers, she slowly removed them, and Sam, didn’t know what to do, just froze. Fluttershy looked as Sam and saw that he froze, she felt worried that she might of scared him, or worse. She nuzzled him gently, her fur on her muzzled felt really soft on Sam’s cheek and he relaxed and giggled a bit as it tickled him.

Fluttershy started to smile upon seeing Sam happy. “Are you ok, little one?” She asked.

Sam was a little taken aback, not excepting her to speak, “Y-Yes miss,” Sam spoke up politely.

“What nice manners,” Fluttershy responded, “But there’s no need to be formal little one. My name is Fluttershy.”

“M-my name is Sam,” He replied.

“Aww, what a cute name,” Fluttershy said, making Sam blush, “Are you hungry Sam?”

“I am a little,” Sam replied rubbing his stomach.

“Come on then,” Fluttershy said as she allowed Sam to get on her back. Sam climbed on and she took him downstairs. Sam was surprised by all the animals. Fluttershy took Sam into the kitchen and placed him on a stool, while she went to fix him something to eat. She prepared a bowl of porridge for Sam and added some fruit to make it taste sweeter.

“Enjoy little one,” she said as she placed the bowl in front of Sam. Now Sam wasn’t a big fan of porridge, but he hated to say no to something that took time to make.

Sam picked up a spoon and took a bite of the porridge. His eyes shot open, “AHHH! This is the best porridge I’ve ever eaten,” Sam squealed. It took another bite, it seem to taste sweeter that the last bite. Fluttershy was glad he liked it. Soon Sam finished his breakfast, letting of a little burp which seemed to warm Fluttershy’s heart even more.

“Thank you Fluttershy,” Sam said as he licked his lips.

“Your very welcome Sam,” she replied with a smile, before having a question on her mind, “Sam, if I may ask, can you tell me where you came from?”

The moment she asked the question, Sam went quiet, he’s smile fell, he was happy anymore, he was sad. Fluttershy grew concerned, “Sam? What’s wrong?”

“I have no more home?” Sam said softly, as tears started to leak from his eyes.

Fluttershy was a little confused by that, “what do you mean, ‘you have no more home’?” she asked.

“I-I came from another world, and everyone in that world were turned into common animals, including my mother,” Sam whimpered as he started to cry. Fluttershy’s mother instincts kicked in, as she rushed to Sam’s side and gave him a hug.

“Oh you poor, poor little dear,” Fluttershy comforted him, she rubbed his side and kissed his forehead. Sam embraced the hug, and returned him, rubbing his face into her soft fur. “I’m so sorry for your lose. How would like to help me with tending to my animal friends?”

"I think that could help me feel better," Sam replied. Sam calmed down enough to thank Fluttershy for comforting him. Later, Sam was helping Fluttershy taking care of her animals, Sam was very surprise, when he saw a mouse or bird back on earth, they would run away, but the birds and rodents here were really friendly. Birds landed on his arms and fingers, mice and bunny hopped up on his legs and nuzzled him, and he even got a bear hug from a bear. 'Now I've seen everything,' he thought to himself.

Fluttershy was happy that Sam was much happier that before, but she didn't know what to do with him. 'He probably doesn't have a place to stay,' she thought, 'I could let him stay but my home is full enough with all these animals, what should I do?' Then she remembered that her friend was coming round for bird food.

“Sam," she called out to him, "I have a friend coming over shortly that I think she can look after you.”

“Who?” Sam asked, "can't I stay with you?"

“Her name is Twilight Sparkle, I wish I could stay here with me, but my house is full enough as it is with all my animals,” Fluttershy said as she nuzzled him, "don't worry Twilight is kind and friendly and generally a great friend and pony to be with," as if it was planned, a knock came from the door, “and that should be her.”

“Wow, talk about timing,” Sam said. Fluttershy went to answer the door. When she opened it, she was greeted by Twilight Sparkle. She was a lavender unicorn, with pink eyes, purple tail and mane with pink streaks running through and a six-pointed star with five smaller stars surrounding it on her flanks.

“Good morning Fluttershy,” she greeted her yellow friend.

“Good Morning Twilight,” Fluttershy returned, “here to pick up Owlowiscious’ food?”

“Yes,” Twilight replied.

“Ok, come on in,” Fluttershy said, “I have someone I want you to meet.”

“Oh? Who’s that?” Twilight asked.

Fluttershy brought Twilight in and showed her Sam, who stood in the middle of the room. “Twilight, I like you to meet, Sam,” Fluttershy said as Sam gave a little wave.

“Oh my,” Twilight said shocked at Sam, “Fluttershy, do you know what that is?”

“No?” Fluttershy replied slowly before Twilight quickly answered, “this is a human, I thought they all went extinct after Nightmare Moon was defeated and was trapped in the moon.”

“I do have a name you know,” Sam spoke bluntly.

“Sorry, I was geeking out again,” Twilight said before calming down, “I’m Twilight Sparkle, nice to meet you Sam.” She out stretched her hoof for a shake. Sam reached out his arm and grabbed her hoof and shook it.

“Sam, if you don’t mind me asking, I was told that all humans in Equestria went extinct, so where did you come from?” Twilight asked.

Sam’s faces dropped again, his colour seemed to drain from his face. “Twilight,” Fluttershy spoke up, “Sam came from another world, and that all the human’s were turned to animals, including his mother.”

“Sweet Celestia,” Twilight remarked shocked, feeling sorry for asking the question. Twilight walked up to Sam and embraced him, “I’m sorry for asking you.”

“It’s-it’s ok, you didn’t know,” Sam responded.

“Say, how would you like to meet my other friends?” Twilight asked.

“Are they nice like you and Fluttershy?” Sam asked back.

“Yes, very nice and friendly,” Twilight giggled at his question. Using her magic, she levitated Sam onto her back, as well as the bird food for her pet. “Goodbye Fluttershy,” Twilight called as she waved to her friend.

“Bye Twilight,” Fluttershy waved back, “bye Sam.”

“Bye-Bye Fluttershy,” Sam replied as he waved bye to Fluttershy.

Twilight closed the door as she, with Sam on her back walked down to the little town.

“Who are we going to meet first Twilight,” Sam asked.

“Well one of them is coming up right now,” Twilight said, Sam looked up to see a bright pink pony, with light blue eyes, brighter pink puffy mane, and tail, with three balloons on her flank.

“Heya Twi,” the pony greeted happily.

“Hello Pinkie Pie,” Twilight replied, Pinkie then noticed Sam’s leg of Twilight’s back.

“Hey Twilight? What’s that on your back?” she asked.

“Pinkie, I like you too meet Sam,” Twilight said, Sam waved to Pinkie excepting a wave back. But Pinkie didn’t wave. Her eyes shrank, she did a massive gasp as she jumped in the air and ran away.

“Was it something I said?” Sam asked thinking he did something wrong.

“No, don’t worry,” Twilight assured him, “That was Pinkie being Pinkie.”

Twilight continued to walk into town, Sam looked around, ponies looked at him, Sam felt uneasy. Twilight looked around too, ponies seem to look away when she looked at them. Twilight then felt the wing suddenly push from behind her, she looked up and saw one of her friends. She was a light blue pegasus, with a rainbow mane, and tail, purple eyes, and rainbow lightning bolt on her flank. “HEY RAINBOW!” she called out. Rainbow heard her and looked down.

“HEY TWILIGHT!” she called back as she flew down. But she came down too fast and couldn’t stop herself. Twilight threw Sam off her back just as Rainbow crashed into Twilight.

Sam landed in a barrel of apples, so he had a sort of soft landing. But his feet was sticking out. “Help!” he called out. He then felt something slowly pull him out, it was a magic aura, but it felt different to Twilight’s. He was placed back on the ground, in front of a white unicorn with a gorgeous purple styled mane and tail, blue eyes and three diamonds on her flank. Standing next to her was an orange pony with freckles, green eyes, blonde mane, and tail, three apples on her flank, and a Stetson hat. Standing next to her, was a little olive pony, with a red mane, and tail, and a big pink bow.

“You ok little fella?” the orange pony asked, “that was a nasty throw Twilight did.

“Don’t blame me,” Twilight said as she and Rainbow walked to them, “Rainbow was the one that crashed into me.”

“I said I was sorry,” Rainbow replied, “anyway, I was distracted by this little thing here.”

“Rainbow Dash, don’t insult the poor darling,” the white unicorn said, “Sorry darling about Rainbow, she can be a bit hard-headed sometimes.”

“Hey!” Rainbow yelled, “anyway, Rainbow Dash’s the name.”

“I’m Applejack,” the orange pony said.

“I’m Apple Bloom,” the little pony spoke up.

“And I’m Rarity,” the white unicorn responded, “what’s your name darling?”

“I’m Sam,” Sam replied.

“Where did you come from little guy?” Rainbow asked. Once again, Sam’s face dropped as tears slowly leaked out his eyes.

“Rainbow! Look what you have done!” Rarity shouted as she wrapped Sam in a hug, “you’ve upset the poor darling.”

“Girls, Sam is from a different universe, where all the humans in his world were turned into animals, including his mother,” Twilight told them. They all gasped and Apple Bloom went to hug Sam, she was roughly the same height as him.

“Twilight? Is it ok if I take Sam to meet my friends?” Apple Bloom asked.

Twilight thought about it, then replied, “that’s fine with me.”

Apple Bloom was happy, “come on Sam,” she said, Sam, who had stopped crying, followed her.

Once they were out of ears shot and sight, Applejack asked, “was that a good idea Twilight?”

“Yeah, it gives us time to get ready for his surprise party Pinkie’s planning.”

Sam followed Apple Bloom around the town, and to a tree house on a farm that Apple Bloom explained that was her home, called Sweet Apple Acres.

“Welcome to the Cutie Mark Crusaders Clubhouse Sam!” Apple Bloom declared.

“Not bad,” Sam remarked looking around, “so what do you do here?”

“Me and my friends look for ways to get our Cutie Marks,” she explained.

“What’s a Cutie Mark?” Sam asked.

“It’s these marks that we get on our flanks,” Apple Bloom told him.

“Like what Twilight and Fluttershy have?” Sam asked again.

“Yeah,” Apple Bloom answered, “we could help you find one!”

“I don’t think human’s have cutie marks,” Sam said before waking over to a board with drawings of ponies on it, “who are they?”

“Those are me and my friends,” Apple Bloom answered, “the white one is Sweetie Belle and the orange one is Scootaloo.” Before Apple Bloom could say anything else to reply, she heard voices. “Hey, my friends are here!” she said happily.

“What is up with the time,” Sam said to no one in particular.

Apple Bloom opened the door to greet her friends. Sam saw and white filly unicorn with a pink and purple mane and tail, and green eyes, and an orange filly pegasus with a purple mane and tail and purple eyes. Like Apple Bloom, neither of them had cutie marks.

“Hey Apple Bloom,” Sweetie Belle greeted giving her friend a hug.

“We got lunch,” Scootaloo said holding three pizza boxes, then she notice Sam standing nervously, “Oh, we have company.”

“Sweetie Belle, Scootaloo, this my new friend, Sam,” Apple Bloom introduced Sam. Sam was too nervous to do anything, so he just waved and gave a small smile.

“Oh my Celestia! He’s so cute!” Sweetie Belle squealed as she ran up and gave Sam a hug. Sam felt his muscle get squeezed and struggled to breathe and he then hear his Colour Timer flashing.

“Sweetie you don’t want to strangle our new friend to death,” Scootaloo joked, “he’s already turning blue in the face.

“Oops,” Sweetie Belle said as she let go of Sam, “sorry.” Sam gasped for air as his Colour Timer stop flashing.

“Hey bud, don’t worry about Sweetie Belle,” Scootaloo walked up to him and patted his back, “she had a strong grip when it comes to hugs, but she’s really nice. You good?”

“Yep,” Sam panted getting his breath back, “I’m good.” Then his nose caught the smell of the pizzas. “Is that pizza?”

“Yeah,” Sweetie Belle replied, “we had two plain cheese pizzas and one pineapple and ham.”

Sam perked up when he heard ham and pineapple, “did you say pineapple and ham?”

“Yeah,” Scootaloo said, “that’s mine but you can share with me if you would like.” Sam nodded.

While the four had lunch, the girls told Sam about themselves. How they met and what adventures and trouble they would get themselves into. Sam laughed how they made Apple Bloom’s older brother and their teacher fall in love with each other. Sam then told them about him and his life back on earth and how he ended up in Equestria. And how he lost his mother. Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo felt sorry for Sam and gave him a softer hug.

After that, the girls decided to show Sam around the town. Apple Bloom showed him her home Sweet Apple Acers, Sweetie Belle showed him her home the Carousel Boutique and Scootaloo showed him their school house. Sam was really impressed. The four where just waking through town, when Sam had the feeling of being watched and followed. He turned around and saw too earth pony fillies following them.

One was pink with a violet mane and tail with white streaks, blue eyes, and a tiara as her cutie mark, as well as one on her head. The second was grey, was a lighter grey mane and tail, violet eyes, pearl opal glasses and necklace, and a spoon for a cutie mark. Sam turned back around as asked Apple Bloom.

“Apple Bloom, who are those two following us?” he asked.

Apple Bloom turned around as saw the two fillies and sighed. “What do you two want now?” Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo turned around and saw them too and sighed as well.

“We want nothing to do with you blank flanks,” the pink one said, “we’re more interested in your new pet.”

‘Ouch that hurt,’ Sam thought.

“He is not a pet, he’s a human and our friend,” Sweetie Belle stood up for Sam.

“Really, he looks like a hairless ape,” the grey one responded.

“Who are these two?” Sam asked quietly to Sweetie Belle who was standing close to him to get him safe.

“Those are the school bullies, Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon,” Sweetie Belle told him.

“Oh, so the snubby rich kids who think their better than everyone, but probably have a hard time at home so they make themselves seem tough by bulling others,” Sam said.

“How do you know that?” Apple Bloom asked.

“Hey, I was bullied before, so I know how it feels,” Sam replied, “how did these two get their cutie marks, Diamond being ‘daddy’s little princess’ and Silver collecting a lot of spoon.”

Silver Spoon and Diamond Tiara growled, “Watch what you said ape,” Diamond snarled at him.

“Or what, I’ve been called worse by a parrot,” Sam retorted, “what makes me you think you can scare me?”

“This,” before anyone could say anything, Diamond jumped and punched Sam in the face. This caused Sam to fall to the ground, luckily his glasses didn’t crack or break, but his nose was bleeding. “Could a parrot punch you in the face?” Diamond said with an evil grin on her face.

Sweetie Belle, Apple Bloom, and Scootaloo went to his aid. “What was that for?!” shouted Apple Bloom.

“What, he asked for it,” Diamond said as she came closer and got in Sam’s face, “now you listen here, if you get in my way again, I do something much worse.”

Sam gulped as Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon walked away chuckling to themselves, though Silver Spoon seemed quieter than usual. When the two where far enough, they helped Sam up and helped him clean up. Soon his nose stopped bleeding.

“Are you ok Sam?” Apple Bloom said, worried.

“Yeah, I’m ok now,” he said rubbing his face.

“Are you sure?” Sweetie Belle asked, “she hit you pretty hard.”

“Yeah, I’ve been through worse pain,” Sam told them.

“What do you mean?” Scootaloo asked.

Sam knew that he would have to tell them. “Like I said, I was bullied, but when my old bullies hurt me, the damage was more… permanent,” Sam then lifted his t-shirt and the girls gasped in horror. Under Sam’s shirt, his body was marked with scars, on his torso, back and shoulders. “Each mark is every time they bullied me and lost the fight.” A tear sneaked out from his eyes.

The girls felt even more sorry for him and hugged him again. Scootaloo then noticed the sun was going down, “looks like we need to get back home, it’s getting late.”

“Do you have a place to stay Sam?” Sweetie Belle asked.

“I think Twilight’s is going to look after me,” Sam replied, “do you know where she lives?”

“I’ll show you,” Sweetie said, “I need to walk place Twilight’s to get home.”

“Ok,” Apple Bloom said before she and Scootaloo gave Sam one more hug. “Bye Sam.”

“See ya Bud,” Scootaloo said as the two walked their ways home. Sam and Sweetie walked their way to Twilight’s house.

Soon Sam and Sweetie Belle came to a big tree, that was hollowed out into a library, all the lights where off inside so Sam couldn’t see inside. “Thanks for taking me to Twilight’s Sweetie Belle,” Sam responded.

“That’s ok,” Sweetie replied, “I’m just glad your ok, from that punch from Diamond.”

“Well I guess I will see you tomorrow,” Sam said as he stood on the doorstep.

“Not guess, you will see me tomorrow,” Sweetie said, “we need to make you a member of the Cutie Mark Crusaders.” Before leaving, she gave Sam a nuzzle on the cheek, and waved goodbye.

Sam turned around and let himself in. After today he was a little more confident and went inside, but it was so dark, he couldn’t see a thing.

“Twilight, are you here?” he called out, no response came back, “where’s that light switch?” Just as he said that, the lights came on and Sam was greeted by a lot of ponies looking at him with happy faces.

“Surprise!” they all shouted, this scared Sam so much he actually screamed in fright, then he started to laugh.

“Wow, holy cow, who planned this?” Sam asked chuckling still.

“I DID!” cried a familiar voice, Sam look forward as saw Pinkie hopping up to him with the rest of her friends. “Hi, we didn’t meet properly, I’m Pinkie Pie,” she said.

“Hi, I’m Sam,” he said but then Pinkie grabbed him and gave him a massive hug, surprisingly she wasn’t crushing him like Sweetie Belle did. Probably cause she was softer and fluffier.

“Pinkie,” Twilight said with a defeated smile, “you trying to suffocate him in your mane.”

Pinkie let go of Sam and apologised for that. “Hope you enjoy your party,” she said.

“What’s the party for,” Sam asked, “my birthday isn’t until September.”

“It’s your ‘welcome to Ponyville party’,” Pinkie exclaimed, before hopping for some food.

“It’s a Pinkie thing,” Twilight assured Sam.

“Couple of months ago she celebrated my half birthday,” Rainbow said.

“And before that she wanted to celebrate Gummy’s after birthday party,” Rarity said, “but we had plans for her birthday party.”

They all laughed, “You go and have some fun Sugarcube,” Applejack told him. Sam then went off.

Sam really enjoyed his party, he met a lot of ponies, like Lyra and Bon-Bon, Lyra was really happy to see Sam and Bon-Bon explained that Lyra had an obsession with hands and humans. Then he met a wall-eyed pony named Derpy, and the pony who was applying the music for the party, Vinyl Scratch, or her DJ name DJ Pon3. Sam was taking a little snack break when he felt a hoof tap his shoulder. He turned around too looked at the pony who had tapped his shoulder, she was dark grey, with a black mane and tail, she had a pink bowtie and a cutie mark of a pink musical note.

“Hello, dear,” she introduced herself while clearing her throat, “I’m Octavia Melody.”

“I’m Sam, nice to meet you,” he said, hold in out his hand.

“It’s very nice to meet you too,” Octavia replied.

“If I may ask,” Sam said, “what do you do here in Ponyville?”

“I run a music shop here in Ponyville with my housemate, Vinyl Scratch,” Octavia stated, “she the pony over there creating the music.”

“Yeah I met her earlier,” Sam responded.

“I’m just curious,” Octavia said, “but do you play any instruments?”

“Well, I don’t mean to brag but,” he chuckled to himself, “I can play, Keyboard, Saxophone, Key-tar, Drums, but my favourites are electric and normal guitar.”

“Oh wow,” Octavia was a little surprise that a 10-year-old could be that talented.

“But I didn’t bring any of them with me,” Sam said looking at the floor.

“Aww, don’t be sad dear,” Octavia said, “tell you what, when you come by my music shop, I’ll give you your own guitar, keyboard, etc. on the house.”

“Really?” Sam asked, receiving a nod form Octavia, “oh thank you, Miss. Octavia.” Hugging her leg.

“Your very welcome,” she replied, “And please, there no need to be formal, just Octavia is fine.”

“Ok, Octavia,” Sam said, as Octavia broke the hug.

“Well, enjoy your party,” she said, “and I’ll see you whenever you come over.” As she starts walking off.

“Ok, bye,” Sam waved.

“Goodbye dear,” Octavia replied.

Sam hear his stomach growl, “Ok, ok settle down,” he said as ate a chocolate cupcake.

Later Sam was drinking some Lemonade when Pinkie came up to him with five other ponies. “Hey Sam, I want you to meet your new aunts,” she said enthusiastically.

“I’m not even your son, but ok,” Sam said.

The first was a turquoise unicorn, with a mulberry mane and tail with raspberry streaks, cerise eyes, and her cutie mark was a purple sun with pink rays and blue cloud with purple raindrops. The second was pale, light gold pegasus, with a rose mane and tail, with lighter rose and aquamarine streaks, indigo eyes, and her cutie mark was a purple heart inside a blue concentric heart with a blue diamond outline in front. The third was light, pale amaranth earth pony, with a light pistachio mane and tail with greyish, light, pale and lime green streaks, brilliant amber eyes, and her cutie mark were yellow fireworks and a lemon slice. The forth was a light, amberish grey pegasus, with a dark blue mane and tail with cerulean and arctic blue streaks, gamboge eyes and her cutie mark was a purple cloud with a magenta star inside giving a blue lightning bolt. And the last pony was a blueish grey earth pony with a light grey mane and tail with light blueish grey streaks, orchid eyes and her cutie mark was a yellow and purple stick of dynamite.

“These are the secondary Elements of Harmony,” Pinkie said, “Sunny Flare, element of Nobility, Sour Sweet, element of Love, Lemon Zest, element of Joy, Indigo Zap, element of Bravery and Sugarcoat, element of Patience.”

“Nice to meet you all,” Sam greeted them.

“Wow, so polite,” Sunny Flare said.

“Nice to meet you kiddo,” Indigo Zap, responded.

“what a cutie,” Lemon Zest remarked.

“I’ll say,” Sour Sweet retorted.

“I thought he would be a pony,” Sugarcoat said a little harshly.

“Don’t worry about her Sammy, she can come across as a little harsh with how she words things,” Pinkie assured him.

“Well, I do appreciate you all wanting to be my aunts,” Sam replied.

“Aww, come here,” Lemon Zest said as she, Sour Sweet and Sunny Flare all hugged Sam. Sam thought he had enough hugs for one day. Then everypony heard a cloak chime, it was 10 o’clock. Ponies said goodbye to Sam and started to leave. The Elements bid farewell to Sam and gave him hugs and kisses on the cheeks. Soon the only ones left was Sam and Twilight.

“Fluttershy has asked me if I would like to take of you and dropped off your stuff,” Twilight told him, “and I agreed, so come on, time for bed, I bet you’re really tired.”

Sam nodded and yawned as he hugged her leg. “Thank you for taking me in,” Sam muttered loud enough for Twilight to hear. Twilight smiled and patted his head.

“I get Spike to clean this up in the morning,” Twilight said, “we got a busy day tomorrow.”

“Who’s Spike?” Sam asked.

“He’s my baby dragon assistant,” Twilight replied, “he’s probably asleep now.”

As Twilight and Sam with upstairs to the bedroom, Sam had a question on mind, “Twilight? Pinkie said that Sunny Flare, Sour Sweet and the others where the secondary elements of Harmony,” he asked, “Who’s the primary elements of Harmony?”

“The Primary Elements of Harmony are me and my friends,” Twilight answered, “Fluttershy is the element of Kindness, Rainbow is loyalty, Rarity is Generosity, Applejack is Honesty, Pinkie is Laughter, and I’m Magic.”

“Oh ok,” Sam responded, “So are you like the leader?”

“I guess I am,” Twilight replied, “but there are still six element left, Justice, Empathy, Forgiveness, Dependability, Leadership, and Encouragement.”

They soon came into the bedroom, there was a giant window near the bed and a little basket with a sleeping baby dragon in it. Sam went to the bathroom and got ready for bed. When he came back Twilight was in her bed all ready. Sam came closer and Twilight opened the covers to allow him to sleep with her. Sam climbed in and smiled at Twilight.

“Goodnight Sam,” Twilight said as she kissed his forehead.

“Goodnight Twilight,” Sam replied and his snuggled closer.

Sam felt that he would get a goodnight sleep, with someone as kind and caring as Twilight sleeping with him.

Chapter 2: An encounter with the Princesses

View Online

Sam woke up to the sound and smell of breakfast being made. He noticed that he was still wrapped in Twilight’s arms. He gently wormed out and got changed. He then went downstairs to see who was cooking Breakfast. He saw that Spike was cooking what looked like pancakes, Sam thought it would be best to introduce himself properly.

“Good Morning,” he greeted, Spike turned around and saw Sam, he hopped off his stool, and went to greet him.

“Good morning, you must be Sam,” Spike replied, shaking his hand, “I’m Spike.”

“Yes, I’m Sam, but how did you know,” Sam asked.

“I helped Pinkie with her party for you, and when Twilight came back she told me about you,” Spike replied.

“How much has she told you?” Sam asked a bit worried.

“Everything,” Spike replied, “but don’t worry, If you ever get upset about something in your past again, just talk to me ok buddy?”

“Ok, thanks Spike,” Sam said with a smile and a tear falling out as he hugged Spike.

“You hungry?” Spike asked, as Sam’s stomach rumbled, “take that as a yes.”

Sam gave a small chuckle, as he took a seat at the table. Soon Spike laid three plates, and a giant stack of pancakes in the middle. Spike then went to go wake Twilight up.

“Help yourself,” Spike said as he went to get Twilight. Sam counted how many pancakes there were. There were 15 pancakes so that meant 5 pancakes each. Sam took his 5 pancakes and put them on his plate. As he took a bite of the top pancake, no words could describe how much he loved it.

Twilight and Spike returned, Twilight smiled upon seeing Sam’s happy face eating his pancakes.

“Good Morning Sam,” Twilight greeted Sam.

Sam looked up from his breakfast, swallowed and smiled back at Twilight, “Morning Twilight,” he said as she shoved another pancake into his mouth.

“I guess you like Spike’s cooking?” she giggled, Sam nodded, “Well save some for us!”

She and Spike hopped up at the table and eat their pancakes. Soon all the pancakes were eaten, Sam then burped. “Pardon me,” he remarked slightly blushed.

Then Twilight let off a small burp, “excuse me,” she replied.

Then Spike let off a louder burp, he also burped fire, “pardon me,” he said, as the green flames turned into a scroll. He picked it up, “Oh a messaged from the Princess.”

The message said:

Dear Twilight,

Last night, Luna told me before I went to sleep that she felt a new presence in enter Equestria a couple of nights ago. She would of told me early, but she was tired, and I was busy. I would like you to investigate into this with your friends, and report back to me.

Kind Regards,

Princess Celestia.

“Oh I guess she means Sam,” Spike said as he rolled up the scroll.

“Yeah, Princess Luna must up sense him coming into this world,” Twilight remarked.

“Who’s the Princesses?” Sam asked.

“They’re the rulers of all Equestria,” Twilight told him, “They have very important jobs, Princess Celestia raises and lowers the sun, and looks over Equestria, Princess Luna raises and lowers the moon, and looks over ponies in their sleep.”

“That’s sounds very creepy,” Sam responded.

“I don’t mean it like that,” Twilight assured him, “She goes to the realm of dreams and watches over ponies in their dreams and stops nightmares from corrupting the ponies.”

‘If she’s meant to stop nightmares, that why didn’t she appeared to stop my nightmare when I first arrived?’ Sam thought to himself, before responding to Twilight, “Oh ok that makes… some sense.”

“I think you should meet the Princesses,” Twilight said.

“She did same report back to her when you find Sam,” Spike said.

“Yeah,” Twilight remarked, “well it’s settled, we’re going to meet the Princesses!”

“Oh, joy,” Sam said, feeling nervous while putting on a fake smile.

Later, Pinkie, Rainbow, Applejack, Rarity and Fluttershy had met Twilight and Sam at the train station ready to go to Canterlot to meet the Princesses.

“Ooh! I’m so nervicited!” exclaimed Pinkie, bouncing up and down.

“You’re what?” asked Rainbow.

“Nervicited,” Pinkie replied, “I’m nervous that the Princesses may not like Sam and I’m excited that Sam is meeting the Princesses.”

“Riiiiight,” Rainbow said as she turned back around.

“Do you think Princess Celestia and Luna will welcome Sam into Equestria?” Fluttershy asked softly.

“Of course they will darling,” Rarity assured her, “I don’t see why they won’t.”

“He’s kind, sweet and a grant kid,” Applejack responded. Sam overheard what Applejack said and blushed a bit. Though he was dreadfully nervous. Twilight saw that he was nervous and nuzzled his cheek to calm him down.

“Don’t worry, the Princesses will love you,” Twilight assured him. Sam smiled as he heard the train coming.

The train stopped at the platform and the doors of the coaches opened. Out stepped the Conducer. “This stop is Ponyville, next stop, Canterlot!” he called out.

The Girls showed him their tickets and Twilight showed him hers and Sam’s tickets. He nodded and Twilight got on with Sam hold her tail and following her. They found their seats and the train started to move. As Sam wasn’t so big, he sat in between Twilight and Fluttershy, with Applejack and Rarity sitting across and Rainbow and Pinkie sitting behind him.

“It’s going to be a long ride,” Twilight told Sam.

“Ok,” he replied, he felt his eyes getting heavy, he yawned and laid on Twilight’s side.

“Aww,” Rarity said, “someone’s tired.”

Twilight looked down at Sam and nuzzled him while smiling. “I wonder what he’s dreaming,” she commented.

“Probably some nice,” said Fluttershy.

But it wasn’t.

All around Sam was darkness, he couldn’t see anything. He walked around calling out his friends names.

“Hello!” Sam called out, “Twilight! Fluttershy! Rainbow!”

“No one can hear you,” said a spin chilling voice, from behind him.

Sam turned around and looked up and the scariest monster he had ever seen. The Monster's right side of his head and neck were cyan, while his head is split in two, with the left half being corrupted. His body is navy blue with neon blue stripes around the arms, while his fingers and toes glow neon pink. The left half of his body is also corrupted, resulting in exposed ribs, and the back of his legbone being exposed.

Sam backed up in fear. He wanted to scream.

“Go ahead and scream,” the monster said, “no one is going to heard you as I said.”

“What do you want with me?” Sam said as he back up more.

“Calm down…” the monster said slowly, “there's nothing to worry about little child...”

“I don’t trust you,” Sam said as the monster walked closer, “shouldn’t Princess Luna be here to fight you off.”

“Because your not of Equestria origin, you’re not connected to this world,” he replied, “as long as I’m here in the back of your mind, Princess Luna cannot enter your dreams. Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha!”

“Please stay back,” Sam cried out as the monster went for him, “NO!!!!”

“Sam wake up!!!!” Twilight shouted shaking Sam awake. Sam’s eyes shot wide open with tears streaming down his face. He looked around and saw he was still on the train, with Twilight and the rest looking at him with worry and concern.

“Are you ok little bud?” Rainbow asked. Sam immediately wrapped his arms around Twilight’s neck and started to cry. Twilight placed a hoof around his back and tried to calm him down.

“Did you have a bad dream?” Twilight asked. Sam only nodded in reply, “Can you tell us what happen when you’re ready.”

Sam calmed down and told them about the monster as well as his nightmare when he first came to Equestria. The ponies felt very sorry for Sam and comfort him the rest of the way to Canterlot.

After Sam had calmed down, the train soon arrived in Canterlot, the girls got off with Sam holding Twilight’s tail. They soon enter the streets of Canterlot and already, Sam felt nervous. He looked around at all the ponies, they looked really posh and stuck-up. Back on earth he had heard that rich, posh, and stuck-up people didn’t care for those lower than themselves. He stayed close to Twilight. Rarity notice that Sam was feeling nervous around these posh ponies.

“Sam darling,” she said, Sam looked over to her, “not all of these ponies are snooty and stuck-up.”

“Really?” he asked.

“Oh yes, there are two friends of mine that live here,” Rarity replied, “and they’re really not like these higher ups. Hopefully you get to meet them soon.”

After walking for a bit, the reached the castle, Sam was amazed by it. All the castle he had seen where old and in ruins, but this was beautiful. The came to the entrance where some guards where standing in front of the door.

“Good day, Miss Sparkle,” one of the said.

“Good morning,” Twilight replied, “we have a meeting with the Princesses.”

“Of course go right on in,” the second said. Twilight and the rest thanked them as the walked in, Sam tried to stay hidden within the group.

After walking through the halls and they soon came to the throne room. Sam grew even more nervous. There were guards at the throne room doors as well.

“We have a meeting with the Princesses,” Twilight told the guards.

“Of course wait here,” one of the guards said as he went into the throne to tell the Princesses. A few minutes later, he came back, “Ok you can go in.”

He opened the door and Twilight and the rest walked in. The door closed behind them as Sam looked from behind Twilight and saw two tail ponies with horns and wings. The taller one had white fur with a light pink tone to it with a multi coloured mane and tail a sun for a cutie mark and purple eyes. The second was slightly smaller, with dark blue fur, and midnight blue mane and tail, a crescent moon for a cutie mark and blue eyes. Also, their manes and tail where flowing like they were getting blown in an invisible breeze. The taller one smiled as the ponies came closer.

“Good morning, Princesses,” Twilight said to them.

“Good morning Twilight and everyone,” Celestia spoke back, her voice was soothing, “did you found the new presence that had enter Equestria?”

“More like he found us,” Rainbow commented.

“What do you mean by ‘he’, Miss Rainbow,” Luna asked.

“Well basically, he told us he came from another world called earth, and when he arrived he ended up in the Everfree Forest,” Fluttershy said, “and I found him on my doorstep, he looked so cold and sad, I couldn’t leave him outside in the cold.”

“And out of the kindness in your heart Fluttershy, you took him in,” Celestia said.

“Where is this ‘he’ we are speaking of,” Luna asked. Everyone made room for Sam to come out, but he stayed behind Twilight. Twilight nuzzled his cheek.

“Don’t worry, the Princesses are really kind, there’s nothing to be afraid of,” she said softly.

“Ok,” Sam replied as he came out from behind Twilight. He told in front of the girls. Celestia and Luna where amazed.

“He’s a child,” Luna whispered to her sister.

“Yes,” Celestia whispered back.

“Hello, your highnesses,” Sam exclaimed with a nervous tone as he bowed to them.

Celestia and Luna got up from their thrones and walked down to Sam. Celestia placed a golden slipper hoof on his shoulder. Sam looked up into Celestia’s beautiful eyes.

“There’s no need to be so formal around us little one,” Celestia spoke softly, “you may raise.”

Sam nodded and stood up, as he did, he could smell the sweet aroma of cake coming from Celestia. Celestia and Luna smiled upon Sam.

“What is your name little one?” Luna asked kindly.

“Sam,” he told them, “Sam Metters.”

“Well Sam, can you tell us how you got here?” Celestia asked.

Upon her saying that, Sam’s mood soon dropped. His smile fell into a frown as he looked down in sadness. Celestia and Luna grew concerned.

“What’s wrong sweetie?” Celestia asked.

“I can tell you where he came from and what happened to him,” Twilight said. She told the Princesses about Sam, about where he came from, where he lived and what happened to make him come here, after Twilight finished, both Princesses were completely speechless and felt sorry for Sam. Celestia knelt down and nuzzled Sam’s cheek.

“Please don’t upset, sweetheart,” Celestia said softly and motherly, “with us, you’ll never be alone or abandoned again.”

Sam wrapped his arms around Celestia neck. He fur was equally as soft and Twilight’s and the rest. Celestia placed a hoof around his back. And spoke softly and calmly to him. Sam soon started to calm down, Celestia reminded him of his mother a lot. But just as he started to smile, a female guard burst in the throne room.

“Your Highnesses!” She sound panicked, “a monster has appeared in town!”

“WHAT!” Celestia shouted, “Go help to ponies to get to cover.”

“Roger,” and the guard flew to the streets.

“Come on let’s go see what we can do,” Twilight said, her friends agreed and ran off. Sam was going to follow but Celestia put a hoof in front of him.

“Sam you stay here were it’s safe,” Celestia told him.

“I want to help,” Sam said.

“No its too dangerous,” Celestia replied.

“She’s right,” Luna responded, “this monster could be dangerous.”

“Ok,” Sam said sounding defeated.

“Good, let’s go,” Celestia declared as they all ran off to the monster.

However, Sam may have sounded defeated, but once everyone had left and the throne doors shut behind them, He smirked, and went to a window.

The monster in question was about 10 meters tall, was green, had a horn on its head, and had tuffs of fur on it’s head. No one knew its name, but they were calling it Gomess after an ancient that looked like it. Gomess was rampaging through the streets, roaring at the screaming ponies it was barely missing with its large feet.

Celestia had lined up her unicorn guards to fire at Gomess. “Ready, aim, fire,” she shouted. The unicorn started to fire blast of magic at Gomess, but this only annoyed it. Luna then tried her pegasus guards to try and lead the monster out of the streets. But Gomess just swotted at them away or to the ground. Celestia and Luna were running out of idea.

“I don’t know what else to do,” Celestia said.

“Neither do I,” Luna responded.

“If only some superhero could just show up and take care of the monster,” Pinkie commented.

“Yeah but what are the chances that’s going to happen,” Rainbow Remarked. As if by magic, a bolt of energy shot at Gomess that made it cry out and fall to the ground. Everyone looked to the sky and saw a red and silver suit of armour land on the ground and pull a battle stance. Of course this was Sam in the Ultraman Suit, but no one knew.

Rainbow’s jaw dropped, not believing that Pinkie was right. Pinkie was shocked too and wanted to test her luck again. “I wish I had some cupcakes in all my favourite flavour,” she said, but nothing happened, “aww, what a shame.”

Meanwhile, Gomess had gotten back up and then swiped at Sam, but his claws did nothing to the suit’s armour. Sam punch Gomess in the stomach, then kicked it in the head, then grabbed its head and threw it to the side. Gomess was thrown around, then Sam grabbed it’s tail and yanked it then started to spin around and around then when at a good speed, let go of Gomess and the monster went flying. It flew so far, that it flew of the edge of Canterlot and fell all the way to the ground where it exploded.

Sam smiled from inside the suit as he shrank back down to a more suitable size. He was about to fly back to the throne room. But he notice everyone was looking at him, he just saluted and took to the skies. The ponies watched him fly around the castle and disappear.

Sam quickly called off the armour once he go back in the Throne room. He didn’t have to wait long until the rest came back. They were talking about the strange being in the armour.

“What happened?” Sam asked, pretending to not know what happened, “I couldn’t see much from up here, all I saw was this cool looking superhero fly away.”

“That superhero beat up the monster then threw it of the side of Canterlot,” Rainbow exclaimed, “it was awesome!”

“Are you ok though, Sam?” Celestia asked, “the being didn’t hurt you when it flew round?”

“Of course not,” Sam assured them.

“That’s good,” Twilight said as she hugged him.

Soon, after having lunch with the Princesses where Rainbow tried to scare Sam about how scare Gomess was in which she was slapped around the head by Applejack and being showed around the castle while riding on Celestia’s back, Twilight and everyone thought it was time to go home. They bid farewell to the Princesses and after Sam gave one last hug to Celestia and Luna they left the castle.

Sam felt really tired again, so he rested on Twilight side. He hoped that he wouldn’t get the monster in his nightmares again. He really wished that Luna could fine a way into his dream.

Later that night, Luna was in her dreamscape, and was walking down a long hall with doors on each side that led to ponies dreams, but she wasn’t minding about these doors. She had one door on her mind. She soon came it a lone door on her right, it was chained up and bolted shut and had a sort of shield around it.

“Well, I now know this is Sam’s dream door,” she said to herself, “I just need to find a way to open it.” She put a note of the door that said, Sam’s dreams. She tried blasting the door, but it did nothing. She sighed and then went to the do her duty.

Chapter 3: Enrolment

View Online

It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining, birds were singing, and Sam was snoring. Twilight shock him awake gently, hoping to not startle him. Sam slowly opened his eyes to see the smile on Twilight’s face. She kisses him on the forehead.

“Good morning sleepy head,” she giggled, “you snore almost as loud as Spike.”

“Good morning Twilight,” Sam replied, “sorry about that.”

“Don’t worry Sam,” Twilight assured him, “I’m used to it. Come on we got something important to do today.”

“What’s happening?” Sam asked as he got out of bed.

“I’m going to enrol you at the Cheerilee’s schoolhouse,” Twilight said.

“School,” Sam muttered, his face seemed to freeze in fear.

“Yeah, as you’re ten years old, you haven’t finished school,” Twilight said, she had her back turned to Sam so she didn’t see his face, “so I thought it would be best if you went to school. Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo go there so you’ll have some friends.”

Hearing the CMC’s names made Sam less nervous. “Come on then, get ready,” Twilight told him.

Sam soon got dressed and had breakfast provided by Spike. Then he and Twilight made their way to the Schoolhouse, as it was a Sunday the schoolhouse wasn’t open, but Cheerilee was still there as she had stuff to do to get ready for the next day. As Sam and Twilight walked through town, ponies would give Sam a friendly wave, which he returned it. Soon they arrived at the Schoolhouse, Sam noticed that Fluttershy’s cottage was close by.

“If I’m too busy when school finishes, I’ll get one of my friends to take you home ok?” Twilight asked, as she knocked on the door.

“Ok,” Sam replied.

Not long after Twilight knocked, the door opened to reveal and moderate cerise earth pony, with a pale rose and greyish rose mane and tail, she had greyish green eyes and her cutie mark was three smiling faced flowers.

“Oh Good morning Twilight,” Cheerilee greeted her, “I wasn’t expecting you today.”

“Good morning Cheerilee,” Twilight returned the greeting, “I was hoping that you could enrol Sam here into your school.” She nudged Sam closer.

“Oh my goodness,” Cheerilee said, rubbing his cheek with a hoof, “he’s a cute one. Of course he can be enrolled here.”

“That was quick,” Sam thought to himself, “what’s going to get this chapter to over 1,000 words long? The script so far only goes on two pages.”

“You’ll just need to sign some papers,” Cheerilee told her.

“Of course,” Twilight replied, “Sam you wait out here.”

Cheerilee led Twilight into schoolhouse as Sam waited outside. This gave Sam some time to think about something. His school life. He thought back to his friends.

Chloe, the sweet and kind one. Reece, the fancy talking and gay one. Erin, the cheeky prankster. James the over-confident hot head. Oscar, the lone-wolf. Kelly, the artist, hippie, and nudist. Sophia, the Miss Bossy Boots. Sommer, the hard-working New Zealander. Millie, the shy, quite one. Phoebe, the Queen of Kisses. Thomas, the short-tempered one. Tyler, the big, strong one, that scares the bullies away. Joe, the team leader before Sam came along. And Elena, In Sam’s option, the most beautiful, the most caring and the most lovable girl in his life.

He thought about his teacher, Anna Dickson. He viewed her as a sort of second mother, she would help support him when he got bullied, and would help him a lot in class. He thought about the schoolwork and how English was one of his favourite as most of the time, it would be learning about a book he’s read or how to write a story.

But then he thought about his bullies. He remembered what the did to him. He looked around to make sure no one was around and took his shirt off. His eyes widening in horror as he screamed.

Twilight and Cheerilee were just finishing up Sam’s enrolment papers, when they heard him scream. Twilight and Cheerilee ran out to see Sam with his shirt off, and scars on his back.

“Sam!” Twilight ran to him, worried about him, “What happened?”

Sam slowly turned around, to reveal more scars on his torso, and tears in his eyes. He ran to Twilight and wrapped his arms around her neck. He cried into her fur as she rubbed his back. She could feel his scars on his back.

“Shhh, Shhh, Shhh,” Twilight hushed him. Sam still had tears falling out of his eyes, as he started to slowly calm down. Twilight used a hoof to wipe his tears away, “Can you tell me how you got these scars.”

Sam took a deep breath and told her and Cheerilee what happened. “It was when I was five,” Sam began, “When I first joined my primary school, I was a lonely boy, but I was also a target for bullies. They bullied me for a really long time, and they force me to do their schoolwork and when I talked back to them, the give me one of these. I called them Terror-Scars, because whenever I have nightmares, the scars would give me unbearable pain.”

Twilight and Cheerilee was silent, they had never heard such a sad story. “Did anyone not help sweetheart?” Cheerilee asked, breaking the silence.

“When I got my first scar,” he said, “two kids came to me and felt bad for me. So they became my first friends. But the problem is, that their bigger than before.”

“So are you saying that they somehow grew,” Twilight asked.

“I don’t know,” Sam said as he cried some more.

“You poor, poor child,” Twilight stated as she wrapped her arms around him, she started to tear up herself, “I’m so, so sorry you went through those terrible time. But don’t worry Sam, I would let anything like that happen to you again.”

“Thank you,” he said as she snuggled up into Twilight’s fur.

“You’re all signed up Sam,” Cheerilee said nuzzling his cheek, “so you’re all ready for tomorrow.”

“Thank you Miss Cheerilee,” Sam said hugging her neck. He then turned to put his shirt back on.

Twilight then had an idea, “Sam, how about we pop over to Fluttershy’s to get you a companion,” she said.

“Do you mean like a pet?” Sam asked.

“Yeah, but I’ll help you in taking care of it,” Twilight replied.

“Ok, sure,” Sam said, “I always wanted a pet of my own.”

“Come on then,” Twilight said, “Thank you for your time Cheerilee.”

“Thank you Miss Cheerilee,” Sam called to her as he waved her goodbye.

“See you later in class, Sam!” Cheerilee called back as Twilight and Sam made their way to Fluttershy’s cottage.

Sam was still a little shaken up from finding out that his scars had grown bigger. Twilight noticed he was still a bit sad and shaken about his scars, she placed a hoof on his shoulder.

“Are you feeling any better Sweetie?” Twilight asked with a worried look on her face.

“Better, but I’m still a bit shaken”, Sam replied, “I just don’t understand how they started to grow.”

“Maybe because you said that when you have a nightmare, they gave you pain,” Twilight said, “maybe the magic of you being teleported here affected them to grow when you have nightmares as well.”

Sam thought that that could be a good reason. Soon Fluttershy’s cottage came into view and the two could see she was attending to her birds. When they got nearer, Fluttershy noticed them.

“Hello Twilight, Hello Sam,” she greeted sweetly, “what brings you all up to my cottage?”

“Hello Fluttershy,” Twilight began, “Sam has been having nightmares and has been in real pain from his uh… Terror-Scars.”

“Oh my,” Fluttershy gasped as she wrapped a hoof around Sam letting him in one of her ‘Flutter-Hugs’, “What’s a Terror-Scar?”

Sam lifted her t-shirt and showed Fluttershy his scars. “Oh my goodness!” Fluttershy exclaimed, “How did you get those?” Sam then Told Fluttershy his story, when he was finished, Fluttershy had tears in her eyes. “You poor baby,” she muttered while hugging him.

“We don’t even know how they got bigger though,” Twilight said, “but I thought it’s due to the magic of how he arrived here.”

“It’s very possible,” Fluttershy replied.

“So Sam said that he would like a pet”, Twilight finished.

“Well come in and choose one,” Fluttershy said as she calmed down and broke the embrace, she went back inside followed by Twilight and Sam

Inside her cottage, Fluttershy started to show Sam her animals.

“Would you like a dog?” Fluttershy asked.

“No thank you,” Sam replied, “Although I do love dogs, they’re just too full of energy.”

“Ok, than maybe a cat,” Fluttershy said.

“No thanks,” Sam responded, “They’re too lazy and demanding.”

“A bunny.”

“Too cute.”

“A mouse.”

“Too small.”

“A bear.”

“To big.”

“A parrot.”

“Too loud.”

“A snake.”

“Too long.”

“A squirrel.”

“Too hyper.”

“A spider.”

“Too scary.”

“Well I’m afraid that’s it,” Fluttershy said.

Sam felt defeated, as he walked to Twilight, something caught his attention at the corner of his eye. There, in a cage, was a middle-sized chameleon. It was grey, with a pink underbelly, and blue spots.

“Fluttershy, who’s this?” Sam asked.

“Oh, that’s Camillia,” she answered, “I found her in the each of the Everfree forest just last week.”

“Can… I have her please?” Sam asked hopefully.

“Of course,” Fluttershy replied smiling, “I bet she make a wonderful pet.”

Camillia seemed to nod. “She is quite cute,” Twilight stated.

“Thank you Fluttershy,” Sam said giving her a hug around the neck, “I take good care of her”.

“Your very welcome sweetie,” Fluttershy responded, as he left smiling with his new pet.

“It’s nice to see him smile”, Fluttershy remarked as Sam walked down the path to Ponyville.

Twilight could only agree.

“Twilight, are you coming?” Sam called to her.

“Just coming!” Twilight called back, “thanks you Fluttershy.”

“No problem, Twilight,” Fluttershy said as she hugged her friend, and Twilight left to catch up to Sam.

Chapter 4: First day at school

View Online

Sam woke up the next morning, happy but nervous at the same time. Luckily that night, he didn’t have a nightmare with Camillia sleeping next to him to keep him safe. But even so, he barely spoke that morning, only speaking when spoking to. Twilight understood this.

“You ok honey?” she asked as she walked Sam to the schoolhouse.

“I’m a little nervous,” he replied.

“Don’t worry honey,” Twilight assured him, “like I said yesterday, Apple Bloom, Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle go there so they can help you fit in.”

“I know, but will the other students don’t like me?” Sam asked.

“Now don’t think like that,” Twilight replied, “sure there’s a couple that like to make a few jokes, but they all mean well. Well most of them.”

“Do you mean…?” Sam asked again.

“Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon,” Twilight replied, “The CMC talk about them all the time.”

Soon the schoolhouse came into view, with Cheerilee starting out greeting the foals and fillies. She turned to see Twilight walking up.

“Good morning Twilight,” Cheerilee spoke happily.

“Good morning Cheerilee,” Twilight greeted. Cheerilee then looked down at Sam.

“Good morning Sam,” she said with a smile, “Are you feeling better?”

“Morning Miss Cheerilee,” Sam replied, “Yes I am, thank you for asking.”

Sam smiled at her, then hugged Twilight. She nuzzled his head, and Sam walked into the schoolhouse. “Have a good day sweetie,” Twilight called out.

Sam waved back at her. Once he got inside, Sam saw the foals and fillies talking amongst themselves. He could see Sweetie Belle, Apple Bloom and Scootaloo talking to each other. Cheerilee walked around him and stood at her desk. “Good morning Class,” Cheerilee called out.

“Good morning Miss Cheerilee,” the students replied.

“Before we get started with the day, I like you all to meet a new student that will be joining us,” Cheerilee said as she motion Sam to come forward.

Sam slowly walked to the front of the class with a brave expression on his face. Even though he was dreadfully nervous. Sam waved at everyone; the students could help but find Sam interesting.

“I know Sam seems a bit… different, but he’s just like all of you,” Cheerilee assured them, “a boy that wants to learn. Now Sam you can go take a seat.”

Sam nodded as he made his way to an empty seat. As he made his way to the back, some of the students stared at him, and when he wasn’t expecting it, a student stuck a leg out and tripped Sam up. He fell to the ground with a thud. The students gasped as Sweetie Belle went to help him.

“Ouch,” Sam remarked as he struggled to get up.

“Oh my,” Cheerilee said, “Are you ok Sam?”

“A little,” Sam replied, Sam looked at the one that tripped him up, and wasn’t surprised to see it was Diamond Tiara.

Diamond gave innocent looks as if it was an accident. Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo just stared at her with angry looks.

Sweetie Belle help Sam to a seat, and comfort him as he sat down. Sweetie stared at the Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon as she went back to her seat. Cheerilee then became the lesson.

“Who does he think he is, he just shows up out of nowhere, and tries to steal my spotlight away,” Diamond whispered to her friend.

“He’s a fool to think if he has a chance,” Silver chuckled.

“I’ll show him who rules the school,” the Diamond said, “and it’s me.”

Breaktime soon came around. Sam was sitting on a bench, looking at his Colour timer, when he heard a voice call him. He looked up to see Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon coming towards him.

“Hey, twerp!” she called out to him, Sam didn’t reply, “are you deaf? I’m talking to you.”

Sam still didn’t respond, he just ignored her. Annoyed with being ignored, Diamond picked up a rock and threw it at Sam.

“Ouch,” Sam responded, rubbing his head where the rock had hit him.

“Now that I have your attention,” Diamond Tiara said, “Do you think, you can just walk in here, and steel my spotlight?”

“What spotlight?” Sam spoke back, “now one here likes you.”

“Quiet, Shrimp!” Silver Spoon said as she smacked him.

“Well let me tell you this,” Diamond said before stepping on his foot, “I run this school, and I don't like anypony that is new to try, and show me up, understand?"

“But I…” Sam tried to speak up.

“"Be quiet!" She stomped a hoof down on Sam’s other foot making him wince in pain, "Now, if you just stay out of my way there won't be a problem. You can do whatever you want outside School," She looked at him with a mean smirk, “but within school, I can do what I want with you. Understand?”

“Yes,” Sam squeaked, “can you get off my feet now?”

Diamond got of his feet, but then Silver Spoon kicked the back of his legs, causing him to fall forward, and then with his hands on the ground, Diamond slammed her front hooves on his hands. Sam screamed in pain, now he know how Tom from Tom and Jerry must of felt have the time.

“Oh, one more thing twerp,” she said getting his face, speaking in a whiny mocking tone, “you really think that Ms. Cheerilee, those Blank Flanks, and everypony else really cares for you, and loves you? No they don’t.”

“Your… Lying,” Sam winced he could feel his hands.

“Oh please, why would they?” Diamond said, “you aren't even a pony. You’re just a dumb, hairless, ape."

She finally got off Sam’s hands and walked away smiling to herself. Sam tried moving his hands, but he could barely lift a finger. He heard voices coming towards him, he looked up to see Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo running to him.

“Sam!” Sweetie called out to him as she helped pick him up.

“Are you ok bud?” Scootaloo asked.

“I can’t move my hands,” Sam cried softly, tears were begin to form.

“Come on, let’s get you to Miss Cheerilee,” Apple Bloom said.

The CMC told Sam to Miss Cheerilee, who was getting the next lesson ready.

“Miss Cheerilee!” called out Sweetie Belle, “we need medical help!”

“Girls? What happened?” Cheerilee asked as she turned around.

“Diamond Tiara…” Sam tried to speak by flashback to his old school, showed what happened the last time he told his old bullies off on.

“Diamond Tiara did what?” Cheerilee asked, sounding worried, “What did she do?”

“Go on Sam, you can tell her,” Apple Bloom said. But Sam couldn’t, he feared that Diamond and Silver would do the same as his old bullies.

“Sam I can’t help you if you don’t tell me,” Cheerilee told Sam in a motherly tone.

“Excuse me, Miss Cheerilee,” said a voice from the door, everyone turned to see a little unicorn filly with and yellow mane and tail, and pinkish grey fur coat, “I know what happened to Sam.

“Dinky?” Scootaloo said.

“I saw Diamond Tiara stomp her hooves on to his hands, after Silver Spoon kick his legs making them collapse and him falling to the ground,” Dinky said as she walked over to Sam. Sam looked at her, as she rubbed his back and kissed his hands.

“Is that true Sam?” Cheerilee asked, Sam just nodded, “Well she’s going to have a stern talking to after school. But for now, let me help you with your hands.”

Cheerilee got out her medical bag, and covered Sam’s hands in a special healing cream then wrapped them in bandages.

“Try not to move your fingers so much,” Cheerilee told him.

“Ok, thank you,” Sam said while hugging Cheerilee’s neck.

“You’re very welcome,” Cheerilee replied, “Sam if Diamond Tiara does anything else to you, please tell me.”

“I will,” Sam replied, as Cheerilee called the fillies and colts back in for the next lesson.

When then next lesson started, Sam learnt a bit about of Pony history and found it was pretty similar to human history back on earth. Well, save for the evil magical ponies and other mythical creatures. Next, they did a little art, and Sam put his art skills to the test. When Cheerilee came over to see how he was doing, she was amazed to see Sam’s drawings. He did six drawings of monsters based of a crocodile, a monkey, a rat, a mammoth, an aardvark and a armadillo mixed with a pangolin.

Lunchtime soon came around. Sam was sitting on the same bench, looking at his hands. He looked up to see Scootaloo coming towards him.

“Hey Sam,” she said, “are you ok, how are your hands?”

“Hey Scootaloo,” he said while rubbing his arm, “yeah, they still sting both Cheerilee said I can take them off once I get home? But I didn’t do anything to Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon,” Sam said, “Why are they picking on me?”

“They pick on the new students because they think that they’re stealing their spotlight,” Scootaloo responded, “It’s not just the new kids they bully, they also bully those that they think are lower than them. Ones with no cutie marks like us, or those that are sort of special.”

“Special? In what way?” Sam asked.

“You see Lily Longsocks over there?” Scootaloo said pointing to a little pink earth filly with a two-toned magenta mane and tail, blue eyes, and a hedgehog for a cutie mark. She was standing near a broken tree branch with some other students who were trying to move it from the playground.

“She seems normal,” Sam remarked, but he quickly ate his words once a colt called her over to help and she lifted the heavy branch with ease and move it completely off the playground.

“As I said, special,” Scootaloo responded.

“Wow is all I can say,” Sam said.

“Anyway, I came over to you see how you’re doing after this morning,” Scootaloo said.

“thanks for your concern, Scootaloo,” Sam told her, “but I’m ok.”

“Do you want to come and play with us?” Scootaloo asked, “we can keep you sae from Diamond Tiara.”

“thanks, but I think I stay here and watch,” Sam told her.

“Well if you’re sure,” Scootaloo said as she patted his shoulder and went to go and play with her friends. Sam just sighed as he lay back and ate his lunch, and waited for the day to continue.

Once the day was over, Twilight came to pick Sam from the school. As the school fillies and colt came running out, came out with the CMC, his hands still in the bandages.

“Hey Twilight,” he called out to her.

“Hey Sam,” Twilight called back as she hugged him, “did you enjoy your first day of school?”

“Well… almost,” Sam said as he showed her his hands.

“Sweet Celestia!” Twilight exclaimed, “what happened?”

As she said that, Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon walked out the schoolhouse and stared daggers and Sam. “This isn’t over,” she whispered loud enough for Sam to hear.

“Twilight,” Cheerilee called out from the doorway, “Can I have a word with you. It’s about Sam day today!”

“Ok,” Twilight said, “Sam can you wait here for me?”

Sam nodded as she went to talk with Cheerilee. As Twilight spoke with Cheerilee, Diamond Tiara’s words echoed around his head. Twilight came back out and gave Sam a big hug.

“Cheerilee told me everything,” Twilight said, “come on let’s go home, I bet you’re hungry.”

“I am actually,” Sam replied as both Twilight and Sam started to make their way back to the library. As they did, Sam wanted to ask Twilight what Diamond said.

“Twilight?” Sam asked, “do you and the others really love me, even though I’m not a pony?”

Twilight was taken aback by the question, “Or course we all still love you. I don’t care if you’re not a pony, I think you one of the cutest creatures to ever come into Equestria. What in Equestria make you think that?”

“It was something Diamond Tiara said,” Sam replied, saddened, “she said that you and the rest don’t really care and lover me because I’m not a pony. I’m a dumb, hairless ape.”

Twilight stopped walking when Sam finished. “Sam, listen to me, you’re not a dumb, hairless ape,” she said as she looked into Sam’s eyes with her hooves on his shoulders, “you’re a human being, and… I was going to tell you this later, but… I’ve been talking to the girls today and we’ve considered in making you my son.”

“R…R…Really?” Sam stuttered, tears on the each of his eyes, “you really want me as your son?”

“Yes, Sam,” Twilight replied with tears of her own starting to build up, “I would like you to be my son. I don’t want you to feel like you have no mother so I was hoping that I would be your new mother. And don’t worry, I don’t want to replace your old mother, but she’ll still be your old mother within your heart.”

Sam couldn’t hold it anymore, he bursts tears as he hugged Twilight, crying into her neck fur. “Yes! I would love you to be my new mother,” he cried happily.

“And I would love you to be my very own children,” Twilight started to happily cry too, “I love you my baby.”

“I love you too mum,” Sam replied sobbing. The sight was adorable to anypony walking by. Twilight stopped crying as she pulled away from Sam, kissed his forehead, and whipped away his tears.

“Come on sweetie,” she said sniffling, “Let’s go home for some dinner. We can sort out the adoption papers with the mayor tomorrow.”

“Ok, mum,” Sam replied, as he held Twilight’s tail in his hand and they made their way back home.

That night, it had started to rain as a hooded mare gallops into an empty marketplace and enters a darkened curio shop. She begins to rummage around the shop until a small candle is lit.

“May I help you, traveller?” said the Shopkeeper as he examined the cloaked mare, “Hmm, something drew you to my shop... something powerful.”

The cloaked mare points to an amulet inlaid with a crimson gem kept under glass on the shelf behind him.

“Ah, you have a keen eye,” the Shopkeeper responded, “the Alicorn Amulet is one of the most mysterious and powerful of all the known magical charms.”

The cloaked mare indicates that this is what she's looking for.

“Uh, ah— I'm afraid this is... far too dangerous,” the shopkeeper warned her, “they say that the magic in it corrupts the user, turning them into a monsters. On the inside and outside.”

The cloaked mare then threw a large bag of bits on the counter. “Would you like that gift-wrapped?” the Shopkeeper quickly said, changing his mind once seeing all the bits.

The mare walks slowly to the amulet and an evil smile is reflected onto the glass dome.

Chapter 5: Magic Dual

The next morning, Twilight and Sam, when to see Mayor Mare about Sam’s adoption. The process was quick and after signing some papers, Sam was Twilight’s son, The new mother and son hugged each other and thanked Mayor Mare for her help. Later that day, Sam and Twilight were at Fluttershy’s Cottage where Fluttershy was telling her animal friends not to be scared of what Twilight was going to do to them.

“Don't be scared, little friends. Twilight is wonderful with magic,” Fluttershy said before turning around to glare at Twilight, “Anything happens to them, Twilight, so help me...”

“Aww don’t worry Fluttershy”, Sam said, giving her a smile.

“Of course she's good with magic. Twilight's great with magic. I guess I just don't want my little friends to be scared. Oh, oh, look how scared they are!” the yellow pegasus commented with fear while pointing at her animal friends.

However, the animals appear to be excited about helping Twilight with her trick.

“I promise, Fluttershy. Nothing bad will happen to them,” Twilight assured her shy friend.

“I know”, Fluttershy said calming down a bit. Twilight then walked closer to the animals. “Stop, stop!” Fluttershy cried out, “They can't take it!” But Twilight hadn’t even picked the little critters up.

The animal’s glow with Twilight's magic and started to fly in the air while Fluttershy starts biting her hooves. The animals happily flew around in the air in the shape of an infinity symbol, and safely land on the ground.

“Mum, that looked amazing!” Sam called out.

“Phew!” Twilight sighed, “That's all for now, little ones. Maybe we can practice again later, if Fluttershy says it's alright.”

The animals chittered as they all ran up to a still very scared Fluttershy.

Twilight thanked her child, “I have to be at my best when she arrives with the delegates from Saddle Arabia. I can't believe she's trusting me with the entertainment.”

Sam snorted at the name, “Saddle Arabia,” he chuckled.

Suddenly, Rainbow Dash zooms in and crashes into Twilight. She looks frantic about something. “Twilight! Come quick! It's an emergency!” She told her.

“What?!” Sam asked a little worried.

“Somepony is causing havoc in town”, Rainbow said before taking flight, “hurry, quickly”.

When Twilight, Rainbow, Sam and Fluttershy ran into Ponyville they spotted a hooded mare, who just zapped Rarity spawning a brown dress on her.

“You beast!” Rarity pouts, “this shade of brown should only be used for accents!” She faints as Applejack catches her on her back and walks away with Pinkie Pie.

“Come on, Applejack,” Pinkie said, “we've got to get her in a nice, soothing pink, stat!”

“What's going on here?” Twilight asked in confusion.

“Well, well, well,” the hooded mare said before revealing who she was, “If it isn't... Twilight Sparkle.”

Everypony gasps to see who she was. Her fur colour was light blue while her mane was silver, she was also a unicorn. Or was she. She was three times bigger than a normal pony, she had long dragon like horns on her head, razor sharp fangs and claws coming from her hooves

“Trixie?” Twilight gasped in shock, “What happened to you?”

“Who’s Trixie?” Sam asked in confusion.

“You call that great and powerful?” Rainbow mocked her magic skills. but Trixie casts a spell on Rainbow, causing one of her wings to enlarge and making her lose balance.

“Oh! She's Rainbow Wobble, now!” Snips told Snails.

“Yeah! Ha ha ha ha!” Snails laughed. Snips and Snails still remained loyal to Trixie. “Good spell, oh Great and Powerful Trixie!”

But that does not move her. “You two! Quiet!” She zapped both of them, fusing the two colts by the tips of their horns.

“Stop picking on my friends, Trixie!” Twilight called out but Trixie didn’t listen.

“You and I have some unfinished business,” Trixie smirked, “my magic's gotten better since I was here last. And I'm going to prove it! Me and you, a magic duel. Winner stays, loser leaves Ponyville forever!”

“Forget it!” Twilight said angrily, “I'd never make a deal like that!”

“Hm, suit yourself”, Trixie said, before she went back to causing havoc, she notice Sam hiding behind Twilight. She used her magic to levitate Sam closer to her. “Oh and what do we have here, a hairless ape”.

“Please put me down”, Sam said nervously. He was shaking in Trixie’s grasp.

“Put my son down now Trixie!” Twilight shouted in anger.

“This freak is your child, Twilight?” Trixie asked evilly.

“MUM HELP ME!” Sam cried out helplessly.

“Duel with me Twilight, or you freak of a son will be turned into a copy of the Great and Powerful Trixie!” She threatened already turning Sam’s hair silver. Judging by how painful expression on Sam’s face, Trixie was doing a number on his scars.

“Trixie please stop!” Twilight pleaded. She didn’t want to see her own son be in so much pain.

“So what will you answer be?” Trixie taunted.

“Alright, Trixie,” Twilight sighed, “let's duel!”

“Excellent,” Trixie explained. She then removes all the spells she made. Sam ran over to Fluttershy and Rarity for comfort, as they wrap him up in a warm embrace. “If I lose, I won't set hoof in Ponyville again,” she said, “but if you lose, you're the one banished from this one-horse town and you son become my servant!”

Everypony gasped at that statement, Trixie makes the first move and blasts a heavy cart loaded with two barrels of apples into the air. Ponies scramble out of the way from where it's going to crash, but Shoeshine trips and is in danger of being crushed.

Twilight takes control of the cart in time and sets it and its contents right again, just as Trixie hurls six large pies at her. Thinking quickly, Twilight conjures a parasprite, which immediately gobbles up the incoming pies.

The creature burps up another parasprite, but Twilight removes both of them before they can reproduce again. She has barely recovered from the magical exertion when Trixie drops a large sheet of snow on Twilight and the vicinity. Twilight easily melts the snow and shoots a beam of magic at her opponent, causing a long moustache to grow on her face. Twilight's friends laugh and Trixie haughtily snips her facial hair off with conjured scissors.

Trixie then summons Snips and Snails, who fearfully bow to her. She suddenly zaps them with a helical ribbon of red magic that lifts them into the air. When they fall back to earth, Snips has become a wailing foal and Snails has become a withered elderly pony.

“An age spell?” Twilight gasped, “but... how could you do an age spell? That's only for the highest-level unicorns!”

“Well, Twilight? Give up?” Trixie mocked. Twilight determinedly tries to reverse the age spell, but the power required is beyond her capabilities. “Trixie is the highest-level unicorn!” she laughed, “And now it's time for you to leave Ponyville! FOREVER!”

“That's enough, Trixie!” Applejack said, as she and her friends protected Twilight.

“You proved your point,” Rarity said, “but you can't possibly expect Twilight to leave Ponyville!”

“You fools,” Trixie chuckled, “She’s already…”

But before she could finish, a buzzsaw of light fires towards Trixie from the side. Twilight and everyone look to their left.

“Who dares?!” Trixie roared, looking to her right. She was a little shocked to see it was the superhero from Canterlot.

“Back down unicorn,” Sam spoke in a different voice to try and disguise it.

“Who are you?” Trixie snarled.

“I. Am. Ultraman,” Sam replied.

“Whoever you are, you won’t stand in my way,” Trixie shouted and fired a blast of magic, but Sam grabbed it, and crushed it in his hand. Trixie was shock then fired some more blasts. Sam just smacked them away. Trixie then tried to fire a beam of magic, but Sam defected it with a pair of arm mounted energy blades on his arms.

Trixie started to panic as Sam started to walk towards her. She used her magic to lift chunks of earth out the ground, and threw them at Sam. But he just caught them and threw them the ground. Trixie then summoned barrel then place it over Sam, but he just merely busted out of it. Trixie even tried to summon a wall to crush him. But Sam just fired a beam by crossing his arms and destroyed it. Trixie had started to back up in fear, no one had been that skilled to block her every attack.

Applejack and Rainbow stood behind her to stop her from running away, she noticed this and just teleported behind them and ran away. She looked behind to see if Sam was still there, but then he suddenly landed in front of her. She screamed and just before she could ran away, Sam grabbed her by the amulet on her neck and lifted her up. Trixie could do nothing as Sam grabbed her horn and drained the alicorn amulet dry by absorbing the energy through the horn. As he did Trixie reverted back to normal, normal hooves, normal teeth, no horns. Just a normal unicorn.

The now weak and powerless Trixie weakly look at the Ultraman mask, as he then suddenly threw her into the air and into the lake. She tried to swim to keep her head above the water, but she couldn’t swim, and she started to sink, she tried to call out for help, but no one heard her. As Trixie sank to the bottom, she realised all the horrible things she did when she had the power of the amulet, and now she’ll die a sad mare in the bottom of the lake. But as her started to lose consciousness, she just got a glimpse out somepony dive in to save her, it was Sam back in human form.

Sam had jumped in as with his ultra-hearing heard Trixie needed his help and had to change back to human as the water would her short circuit the Ultrasuit. He was in pain due to his scars being expose to the water, but he push onward, determined to save her. He grabbed Trixie’s unconscious body and swam back to the surface. Ponies gathered round the lake to watch Sam swim to the edge with Trixie.

Twilight and her friends helped Sam out with Trixie still in his arms. Sam then gave Trixie CPR to help breath again. It worked as Trixie started to cough up water.

“Oh thank god,” Sam said, as Trixie sat up, a bit confused about why Sam just save her.

“Why did you save me?” she asked, “After I called you a freak”.

“Trust me I’ve been called worse”, Sam told her, before his face turned to one of concern, “Trixie why did you do this to yourself? Turning yourself into a monster.”

Trixie gave up it was no use hiding her past anymore. “A long time ago, after my mother passed, my father grew angry and blamed everything that went wrong on me. I wasn’t troublesome, I meant well, but he didn’t think so. He treated me poorly and anything I would do; he would call me a failure.”

Everyone listened to Trixie with sadness in their heart for her. “So I ran away from him hoping to be a good mare, however his attitude rubbed on me and I started to boast that I was the Great and Powerful Trixie. And all the while, I was trying to make my father proud of me, but he never even smiled at me let alone care.”

Trixie had tears stinging her eyes, as Twilight and her friends listen. Trixie felt something wrapped around her necks, she looked down to see Sam hugging her.

“I forgive you”, Sam said, with tears of his own running down his cheeks. Trixie was taking aback by this, not expecting it at all. But she for the first time in a long time, she felt loved. She then wrapped her hooves around Sam’s back returning the hug.

“Thank you,” she said quietly, as she sobbed happily, Twilight, Pinkie and the rest joined in.

That night, under the starry night sky, Princess Celestia and the two delegates from Saddle Arabia are watching Twilight's magic performance, in which she once again levitates Fluttershy's animal friends in an infinity symbol. Fluttershy finds it nerve-wracking, and Spike tries to comfort her as Twilight puts on her show for the delegates. The delegates where very impress, but as she places the animals down, some fancy fireworks went off in the background.

“Huh?” she said in confusion, but then Sam who was standing beside her noticed that Trixie had set them off.

“Trixie?” Twilight said now noticing that Trixie was getting ready to leave.

“It's the least I could do,” She said as she put her hat and coat on, “I treated you and your friends so horribly when I was wearing that Alicorn Amulet. I just couldn't control myself. You can forgive me, can't you?”

“Of course,” Twilight replied, “If Sam forgave you, then so can I.”

“Oh thank you,” Trixie said as she then turned around and started to walk away.

“Hey!” Sam called out as he ran to her, “where are you going?”

“I’m leaving Ponyville to continue my magic show,” Trixie replied, “and to hope I can find somewhere to call home.”

“You, don’t have home?” Sam asked.

“I have my cart,” Trixie replied, “but that’s just a place where I can sleep, I haven’t had a place where I can settle down and call home.” She looked to the ground sadly.

Sam looked to Twilight with a sad expression. “Well why don’t you live here,” Twilight told her, “you’ll have ponies to talk to, fresh food, have a proper bath, everything.”

“Y-you really mean it?” Trixie asked with a shocked expression, “after everything I did today and last time?”

“The past is in the past Trixie, and you can’t change it,” Twilight said, placing a hoof on her shoulder, “but you can change the future. So what do you say?”

“Oh thank you so much Twilight,” Trixie cried as she hugged Twilight.

“And I can help you get better at magic,” Twilight told her.

“You can be part of our team,” Sam said, stroking Trixie’s neck.

“Thank you, both of you, thank you so much,” Trixie said.

As the night went on, Sam and Twilight helped Trixie settle down in Ponyville, they chose an empty spot in town for Trixie’s cart to stay until they could get her a proper house. Trixie is very grateful for Twilight to let her stay in Ponyville, she would even get a job as a babysitter, and she was amazing at it. She would even babysit Sam a few times and both she and him cherish the moments they spent together. But that’s a story from another day.

Chapter 6: An Eventful Day with Spike

View Online

It had been about three weeks since Sam came to Equestria, and he felt like he finally belongs in Equestria. Everypony treated him fair and kindly. a two weeks, Applejack, Rarity and Rainbow took Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo on a camping trip, and from Scootaloo told Sam, she was scared of an old, creepy pony and headless horse. But she calmed down thanks to Sam and her friends. And last week, Rainbow had been recruited into the Wonderbolts Academy, and made a new rival in Lightning Dust.

But after he defeated Gomess and Trixie, more monsters had been discovered roaming around Equestria. One monster even rose up in Sweet Apple Acres during Applejack’s Apple Family reunion a few days ago. The monster was named Zambolar which was brown with glowing, orange spikes and horn on his back and face.

Zambolar was hungry and had risen up to find food. It ate the apples, but what was scary about it was that Zumbolar's presence is able to create a sort of heat cyclone. The temperatures around his body can become even hotter than six hundred degrees Celsius, enough to create massive forest fires and burn steel. So it set the surrounding trees on fire. Zambolar was killed thanks to Sam in his Ultraman Suit, but during the battle, Twilight tried to help, but she got injured, and had to go to the hospital. Fortunately, Trixie was more than happy to look after Sam while Twilight was in hospital.

Spike, and Sam went to sleep that night, but we were worried about Twilight.


“S... m.”


Sam felt somepony shaking his shoulder to wake him up. He opened his eyes and saw Trixie standing there looking at him.

“Good morning, Sam,” she said.

“Good morning, Trixie,” he said, “Is Twilight back from the hospital yet?”

“No, not yet,” she replied, “But I just got word from the Hospital that Twilight should be out by the end of the week.”

“Oh,” Sam said, “that’s good then.”

“yeah,” Trixie said, “Come on, I made some breakfast.”

Sam climbed out of bed and gave Trixie a good morning hug. She then went downstairs while Sam went to the bathroom to change clothes. After he did that, he walked downstairs and was about to go to the kitchen when he felt something touch his head. Sam looked out and saw Owlowiscious had sat on his head.

“Oh Owlowiscious,” Sam said as he grabbed Owlowiscious, “What are you doing on my head?”

“Who.” Called Owlowiscious.

“You,” Sam replied, “what were you doing on my head?”


“Stop while you’re ahead, Sam,” Spike laughed, “He doesn’t say anything else. Anyway, Trixie made pancakes.”

“I love pancakes!” Sam said happily.

Sam went into the kitchen, where Trixie placed a plate of pancakes in front of him. Sam took a bite, the moment he swallowed his bite, his eyes lit up and he began to devour his pancakes.

“I’m guessing you like them,” Trixie said with a grin.

“Yes, I do,” Sam replied, with a pancake in his mouth, “I’d say she makes better pancakes than Spike.”

“Hey!” Spike remarked.

Trixie laughed, but then she remembered something. “Hey Sam,” she said, “Pinkie said she wanted my help with something today, so you’ll be with Spike today, alright?”

“Okay,” Sam said.

After they finished breakfast, Trixie left to go see Pinkie, leaving Spike and Sam alone in the library.

“Hey Sam,” Spike called.

“Yes?” he said walking over to him. Sam saw Spike had train tickets in his claws, "what are those for?"

“We're going to Canterlot,” he told him, "It's time for Celestia and Luna's personal rub down.”

Sam just stared blankly at him.

Spike smacked his forehead, 'of course you don't know what I'm talking about.' "We are going to give Celestia and Luna a message."

“Oh, now I got ya,” Sam said. Spike first put a piece of paper in case Trixie and or Twilight came back to let them know where they all were. Spike and Sam soon where walking through Ponyville, ponies waved at them as they strolled along the path. So the reach the Ponyville train station and waited for the train.

“Do you like trains Sam?” asked Spike.

“Oh I loved them,” Sam replied happily, “In fact, I brought with me when I came to Equestria, the whole collection of Thomas the Tank Engine books. Also known as The Railway Series.”

“What are they about?” Spike asked again, he wanted to know what this ‘Railway Series’ was.

“They’re about talking steam engines that have lots of adventures,” Sam answered, “I’ll you once we get home.”

“Ok,” Spike stated, as the train started to come into view, “look here comes the train.”

Once the train stopped, and Sam and Spike were on board, the train started to move and headed towards Canterlot.

Sam was still amazing by the size of Canterlot once he got off the train. He had been to Canterlot before, when he came to see the princesses, but he still couldn’t believe it. Sam felt like he was six again.

“Sam, If I were you,” Spike remarked, “I’ll keep myself hidden but enough to see where I was going.”

“Why?” Sam asked curious to he might need to hide himself, “I was alright last time I was here.”

“hey,” Spike warned, “but you were with Twilight and the girls, and probably didn’t see you. As it’s just me, you’ll be noticed and the ponies here are of a higher class and stuck up. They can be very judgemental around other ponies appearances.”

“Oh,” Sam said as he got behind Spike.

“Just stay close ok,” Spike responded, with a nod from Sam, Spike and Sam walked off through the streets of Canterlot.

Spike was right, Canterlot was of a higher class, and the ponies, mostly unicorns, held their noses in the air and looked very stuck up.

Most of the ponies didn’t pay much attention to the baby dragon and human child, but a few did remark how strange Sam looked. Soon, Spike and Sam reached the castle, two guards stood outside the entrance wearing golden armour. One was a pegasus stallion with a grey coat and lighter grey mane and tail and blue eyes, his cutie mark was of a shield made of pure steel. The second was a unicorn mare with a rose red coat and bright red mane and tail with a green streak running through them and her eye with green with red eyeliner, her cutie mark was a bloody rose.

“Morning Steel Wing, Morning Blood Rose,” Spike greeted them.

“Morning Spike,” Steel Wing replied with a smile, “Ready for that time of the mouth again?”

“Yep and I brought a friend to help me,” Spike said as he stood aside for Sam to come forth, “Blood Rose, Steel Wing, I like you to meet Samuel Metters.” The two guards were amazed.

“Oh this must be the human child Celestia told us about,” Blood Rose commented but lowering herself to not seem so scary. “Hello little guy, I’m Blood Rose, but you can call me Rosy.”

“And I’m Steel Wing,” he announced proudly, “but you can call me Steel.”

“It’s nice to meet you two,” Sam replied, he thought these two were very nice, and possible saw them together in the future.

“The Princess’ are ready and waiting in their salon,” Blood Rose stated, as she and Steel Wing led Spike and Sam into the castle.

The two guards led Sam and Spike through the castle and into the Salon room, Celestia and Luna where just taking off their crowns, slippers, and chest armour.

“Ah Spike you’re here, I was worried we would have to message ourselves,” Luna joked, before seeing Sam by Spike’s side, “Oh, and Young Samuel is with you as well, nice to see you again little one.”

“Nice to see you again as well, Princess Luna,” Sam smiled.

“So shall we start,” Celestia stated.

“We shall, sister,” Luna replied as walked to two massage beds. Spike handled Celestia while Sam handled Luna. “Samuel, honey do you know what you need to do?”

“Yeah I’ve done this many times with my family in the past,” Sam stated as he began to rub his fingers into Luna’s fur.

“Oh yes, oh, oh yes, that’s feels so nice,” Luna breathed, clearly enjoying it.

“You’re fur is really soft, Princess Luna,” Sam said to her.

“Thank you little one,” Luna replied.

“Is Sam treating you well over there, Lulu?” giggled Celestia.

“Yes he is, Tia,” Luna wheezed. Sam made his way up and down Luna’s back. “So how was you feeling today Samuel?”

“I’m ok,” Sam replied, “except I ‘m worried about Twilight.”

“Yes,” Luna said, “Spike wrote us a letter expanding was happened with Twilight and the monster in Ponyville.”

“it’s a good thing that that Ultraman came in to save everyone,” Celestia declared. Everyone agreed.

Suddenly the earth started to shake. Everyone was very confused until they looked out the window and saw a two monsters rise from the ground. One was blue and looked like a mutated sea ray. The other was red and crawled on all fours.

The monsters stood about fifty meters tall and where fighting in the middle of the city. Sam knew what he had to do. When no one was looking, he snuck out of the room, and ran out of the castle. He active his Ultrasuit and grew to fifty meters tall before landing on top of the monsters while the fought each other. Sam’s impact down onto them blasted the monster back.

Ultraman stood proud as the lava monster Grangon and the Freezing monster Lagoras roared and started to charge towards Ultraman. Ultraman decided to attack Lagoras first. Ultraman kicked Lagoras in the chest then roundhouse kicked it in the face. Lagoras roared in pain as it fell back. Ultraman the grabbed Grangon’s head as the monster charged towards him, Ultraman held it back.

The ponies on the ground watched as Ultraman pushed Grangon back, then preformed an uppercut to the jaw, making Grangon’s chest exposed before Ultraman kicked it. Grangon stumbled back as Lagoras came charging up behind Ultraman. Ultraman turned around to see Lagoras coming. Celestia, Luna, Spike and the ponies watched as Ultraman flew into the sky dodging Lagoras’ tackled, the drop-kicked Lagoras on the head.

Ultraman landed next to Grangon then kicked it’s side, causing the monster to roll over. Ultraman stood in a fighting pose, before hearing Lagoras coming up from behind him. Ultraman punched Lagoras in the chest then elbowed it in the jaw causing it to fall back onto the ground. Ultraman turned around to see Grangon coming towards him. Ultraman dashed behind it with speed that Rainbow would be jealous of, grabbed its tail and then started to lift and swing the lava monster around in the air. After spinning around for a bit, Ultraman threw Grangon into Lagoras.

Ultraman started to pant as his colour timer started to flash. He was running out of energy. Grangon and Lagoras got off each other, then fired a fire ball and Freezing beam at Ultraman. Thinking fast, Ultraman diploid his Specium Blades on his arms, he slashed at the fireball, destroying it, and blocked the freezing beam. He was about to fire his Specium Beam at them, Grangon ran forward, Ultraman was going to dodge but he was running out of energy and Grangon bit down on his leg. The bite was so powerful, and Grangon’s teeth was so sharp, they went through the metal armour and into Sam’s skin. Sam cried out in pain as Lagoras ran forward and punched Ultraman in the face, causing him to fall back, and releasing Grangon’s grip on his leg. Ultraman tried to crawl away as blood poured out his wound and as the monsters closed in.

But suddenly out of nowhere, Missiles rained down on Grangon, the lave monster roared in pain then exploded. Ultraman and Lagoras was surprised until Lagoras was blown up by the same missiles. When the smoke cleared, Ultraman saw a robotic dragon-like beast standing behind where Lagoras once stood.

The robot stared down Ultraman as he shrunk and reverted back to Sam. The robot watched Sam stared at it when he finished changing. The Robot looked to the sky and took off. Sam followed it fly in the side of the mountain and out of sight.

‘O…K… then,’ Sam thought, then he turned to the castle, ‘I got to get back to the castle, but I’m too tired to walk back.’ He started to limp back to the castle, but he felt so weak and tired and thanks to his leg injury, he could barely walk. His colour timer was still flashing. If it stopped Sam will completely shut down and fall unconscious until the colour timer had absorbed enough solar energy.

Then he just felt to the ground, “Oh mum’s is never going to hear the end of this,” he thought out loud. Then he hear a voice.

“Oh you poor thing,” it cried, Sam turned to see a tall unicorn mare with a white coat, pale pink mane and tail, light purple eyes, and a cutie mark of three fleurs-de-lis, “Are you Ok?”

“Nope,” Sam grunted in pain, as he grabbed his leg were Grangon’s bite mark was.

The mare got closer to Sam, “May I?” she said, Sam allowed her to. The mare lifted the trouser leg, and saw the bite mark, blood was seeping from the wound. “Oh dear,” she said, “That’s going to need to be patched up.” She levitated Sam on to her back and race off the Canterlot Hospital.

“Where are you taking me?” Sam asked.

“To the Hospital,” the mare replied.

“No,” Sam muttered weakly, “Take me to Princess Celestia.”

The mare stop and looked at him, “Are you sure?” she asked.

“Yes,” Sam breathed, he was getting weaker his colour timer on his chest was flashing faster.

They knew she had to hurry, so she galloped off to the castle. Steel wing and Blood Rose were standing outside when then saw the mare galloping fast up to them.

“Fleur!” Steel yelled as said pony came to a stop, “What’s the matter?”

“It’s this child,” Fleur said, “he must have gotten hurt in the monster fight.”

“Sam! How did he get out the castle!” Rose yelled, “Are you alright?”

“Blood… Rose…” Sam spoke weakly.

“Don’t worry champ,” Steel assured him, “you’ll be all right.”

Rose, Steel and Fleur ran inside the castle to the throne room were Princess Celestia, Luna and Spike were pacing around.

“Princess!” Steel called as they burst into the door.

“Did you find him?!” Celestia asked.

“Miss. Fleur Dis Lee did,” Steel stated as Fleur walked forward and levitated Sam in front of Celestia.

“Sam!” she cried, she went into full mother mode, she found the wound and started to heal it. But as she did, his Colour Timer started to malfunction, and a pulse of energy shot out from Sam’s chest sending everyone back.

“Tia! Stop!” Luna cried, as Celestia was about to heal Sam again. When she stopped, his colour timer was still blinking but it was flashing slower. Luna went to Sam and pulled down his shirt, to show his colour timer, then it clicked. For Celestia too.

“Sam,” Luna asked, “are you… Ultraman?”

Sam just nodded slowly as his strength started to come back slowly.

Celestia wrapped Sam in her arms, “Oh Sam,” Celestia muttered as tears started to build up in her eyes, “Why didn’t you tell us?”

“I didn’t want to put you all in danger,” Sam said with more energy in his voice his colour timer started to flash even slowly, “I didn’t want anyone to find out.” He lifted his arms up and wrapped them around Celestia’s neck.

“Thanks to my Ultra powers, I can self-regenerate,” Sam said.

“Were you like that the whole time?” Spike asked, think that Sam was acting weak from the start.

“No, I literally fell outside,” Sam told him, “Thank you Grangon for biting my leg.”

Luna teleported in some bandages and wrapped around Sam’s leg, until the bite mark was completely covered. “There you go,” she said.

“Thank you, Princess Luna,” Sam thanked, “And thank you, Fleur was it? For bring me here.”

“Your very welcome, little one,” Fleur replied with a smile.

“So… Care to explain your superhero persona?” asked Spike.

“Ok, so it goes like this,” Sam said, and he explained what happened to him.

“So before you came to Equestria, you almost drowned, but Ultraman saved you,” Luna said.

“And now you can become Ultraman to fight and protect Equestria,” Celestia said.

“Yeah,” Sam replied, “but can you not tell Twilight or anyone else please.”

“Pinkie Promise,” Spike said, “Cross my heart and hope to fly, stick a cupcake in my eye.”

“And you have our word,” Celestia said as she a Luna gave Sam a soft smile.

“So how are we going to explain this to Twilight,” Spike said point at Sam’s broken leg.

“Don’t worry, Spike,” Celestia assured him, “I’ll take you two back home myself.” She Levitated Sam and Spike on her back.

“Twilight’s not good to let me out her sights again,” Sam chuckled.

Celestia open her wings and took off, she was just flying out the castle when Sam remember the robotic dragon that took out Grangon and Lagoras in one blast.

“Celestia, do you have something to do with that metal dragon?” Sam asked.

“Oh that was Kiryu,” she replied, “I tell you about him and the other next time you visit. But I’ll say this. He’s not the only Mecha we have.”

A few minutes later, they landed outside the Library, “it’s a good thing Twilight is still hospital,” Spike said as he opened the door, “it gives Sam time to recover.”

“What’s that about giving Sam time to recover?” said a voice behind Spike. Spike turned around to see Twilight. Her arm in a sling, and a raised eyebrow.

“Uh oh,” Sam said from Behind Celestia’s mane. He knew this was going to be a long evening.

Chapter 7: The Uncontrollable Rage of Fury

View Online

As time went on, Sam became more and more aggressive violent in his battle with the monsters. He would bet the monsters to death with is pare hands, through up-rooted trees and wagons at them, and even growl and roar at them. What made this worse for him, was that Sam could see all of this, but he couldn’t do anything. Like he wasn’t in control of his body.

Sam couldn’t tell anyone about this, because no one knew he was Ultraman. But Sam had also noticed that his Terror-Scars where getting even-so-bigger night he had nightmares. Which was nearly twice or third times a week.

One night, Sam was having another nightmare. He found himself in a dark void of nothingness, but he knew he wasn’t alone. He swung around to see the Corrupted Monster standing behind him.

“What do you want now?!” Sam yelled at him, trying to sound brave but he knew he wasn’t, “why are you torturing me?!”

“Why?” the monster answered with a chuckled, “because it’s fun, child. You might be wondering what’s being happening to you these past few weeks.”

“What?” Sam stuttered.

“You, losing control over yourself in your battles,” the monster said.

“You… you haven’t…” Sam spluttered.

“Yes,” the monster replied, “I’ve been slowly taking control of your body. And soon, I’ll be completely in control.”

“No, no,” Sam sobbed as he broke down into tears.

“Don’t believe me?” the monster said, “look at yourself.”

A mirror suddenly appeared, and Sam saw what he meant, his Terror-Scars were getting bigger. Sam cried harder as the monster laughed behind him. The monster started to sink into the ground as his shadow started to absorb Sam. His skin turned inky black, as his scars turned a glowing pink. Sam looked into the mirror again, only to see that he was nearly completely corrupted by the monster, expect for a patch on his face with one of his eyes. Sam helplessly watch as the corruption slowly finished as a single tear dropped.

“Sam! Sam! Wake up!” cried Spike, as he shook Sam awake. Sam’s eyes shot opened as his sat up quickly, panting and crying.

“Wha…? Where…?” he faltered in between each pant.

“Calm down, sweetie,” came Twilight calm, and caring voice as she wrapped Sam in a hug, “it’s ok. You’re safe with me.”

Sam just cried into her soft fur, soon he calmed down.

“What happened? Another Nightmare?” Twilight asked, Sam just nodded.

“It wasn’t just that,” remarked Spike, “your scars were glowing pink. That’s what woke us up.”

“What?!” Sam said, his eyes widening in fear. He lifted up his pyjama top as his scars were much bigger. ‘He’s getting stronger.’ He thought to himself. Sam just cried a bit more into Twilight’s chest, while she soothed him to sleep. She place him in her bed to keep him close as safe.

The next day, Twilight was thinking about Sam. She was worried about him, and his now glowing scars. She was worrying about him so much she didn’t notice Indigo Zap crash into her.

“Ow!” Twilight said, underneath Indigo’s body.

“Oh sorry Twi,” she said as she got up. She helped Twilight back on her hooves. “You ok Twilight?”

“Not really,” Twilight replied.

“Did Indigo crush into you too hard, Twi?” came Sugarcoat’s sarcastic replied, she, Lemon Zest, Sunny Flare and Sour Sweet galloped up.

“No, I’m don’t mean Indigo’s stunt,” Twilight assured them, “I’m just worried about Sam."

“What’s the matter with him?” Lemon Zest asked.

“His nightmares are getting worse,” Twilight replied, “And his Terror-Scars are getting much bigger and now glow pink.”

“Jeez,” Indigo Zap said wincing a little bit.

“Aww, poor deary,” Sunny cooed.

“Have you spoke to Princess Celestia or Luna about it?” Sour Sweet asked.

“I have,” Twilight replied, “and Luna says that in the dreamscape, there’s a door chained shut, that must be Sam’s dreams then.”

“Sweet Celestia I hope so,” Sour said.

“Well, best wishes from five of his best aunts,” Indigo said taking off again, her friends ran after her to make sure she didn’t crash into anyone else. Twilight then continued her walk through town. Eventually she found herself in front of Sugarcube Corner. When she walked in, they saw her friends talking at one of the tables.

“Hey Twilight!” Pinkie yelled waving at them.

“Hey girls,” Twilight said to them.

“How are you today?” Rarity asked.

“Not the best,” Twilight replied, “I’m worried about Sam.”

“Why? what’s wrong with the little fellow?” Applejack asked.

Twilight looked around, making sure nopony would be listening in. “His nightmares are getting worse, his Terror-Scars are getting bigger, and they’re started to glow pink when he’s in pain,” she told them.

“Oh goodness!” Fluttershy said surprised, “Is he alright?”

“He said he’s fine,” Twilight replied, “but I don’t think he is. I think he’s hiding something from me.”

“Like what?” Rainbow asked.

“Some sort of deep secret he really doesn’t want to tell anyone,” Twilight answered, “but I can’t help him unless he tell me what’s wrong.”

“Maybe he thinks we’ll judge him,” Applejack said.

“Where is Sam anyway?” Fluttershy asked.

“He’s with Trixie,” Twilight replied, “I don’t know if they’re at the library or Trixie’s wagons.”

“Oh ok,” Pinkie said as she ate a cupcake.

“I’m just really worried about him,” Twilight said sighing.

“Cheer up Sugarcube,” Applejack comfited her friend, “you’re his new mother, and I dought he would want to see her upset.”

“AJ’s right,” Rarity chimed in, “he probably had to watch his old mother worry as she became a donkey. He probably feels scared that you’ll change too.”

“yeah, I guess you girls are right,” Twilight said.

“Of course we are,” Pinkie replied, “we’re best friends!” all the girls started to chat more happily.

Sam was currently on his own while Trixie was getting some things. He was alright on his own, he could be alone with his thoughts. He didn’t know what was happening to him. Why this corrupted monster was trying to control him. He had also noticed that morning that a one of his scars was starting to poke up from his shirt on his neck. He was worried about what would the ponies do if they saw him with it. It was pretty quiet where he was save for Trixie’s voice not too far from him, but he then heard more voices. And the sounded angry, they sounded like Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon.

“You told us off didn’t you?!” shouted Diamond Tiara. “What did I say would happen if you tattled on us!”

“I...I... I...” Stuttered another voice. It was Dinky! Sam guess Diamond Tiara found out who told Cheerilee was she did to Sam.

‘God that took a while,’ Sam thought.

“Quiet blank flank!” Diamond shouted, striking Dinky across the face, “You’ll pay for this!”

“Stop that!” Sam sounded as he ran over. Dinky was cried on the ground, as Sam petted her mane gently to try and calm her down.

When Sam saw them, Diamond Tiara eyes flared up in anger. Silver Spoon eyes did the same.

“Leave her alone!” Sam yelled at Diamond Tiara, trying to sound more confident.

“Well, well, well,” Diamond Tiara said as Sam stood between her and Dinky, “The monkey wants to get tough. Beat it you ape. This has nothing to do with you.”

“Yes it does!” Sam snapped back at her, “Dinky told Miss Cheerilee what you did to me. About how you hurt my hands. I’m not scared of you Diamond, I’ve pigeons make better insults than you ever can you dirtbag!”

“How dare you!” Diamond Tiara said crossly. Sam didn’t back up though, he kept standing there, weirdly his emotions won’t building up which was a good thing too. “So, it’s not this Blank Flank’s fault for getting us into trouble, it’s your fault for showing up here.”

“No, it’s your fault for being a bully in the first place,” Sam said back.

“I knew you’d give me trouble the minute the moment I saw you,” Diamond said, “You’re gonna pay for having this Blank Flank getting us in trouble.” She then pushed him back.

Dinky was still behind him, and Sam tripped backwards over her, and he then felt a cold breeze blow on his stomach. Sam realized his suit had revealed his chest. Sam quickly pulled it back down, but it was too late. Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon had seen his scarred chest. Diamond Tiara had a mean grin on her face, but Silver Spoon looked as if she had just seen a ghost. Diamond grabbed Sam’s top and pulled it off. Sam’s fear was out, everyone could see his scars.

“Well, well, well,” Diamond Tiara said trotting over, “looks like I was right, huh? You’re even more of a freak than I thought.”

Sam didn’t say anything because his eyes started filling up this time. Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon had found out his secret, and they were going to tease him for it. By now some ponies were gathering.

Trixie came back and squeezed through the crowd to see what was happening.

“Sam!” she called out. But Sam couldn’t hear her from Diamond Tiara’s words echoing around his head.

“You’ll never fit in with us, weirdo,” she said, “You know why? Because you don’t belong here. I freak like you should be put into a cage and kept in a zoo. Maybe if you stay long enough, that will happen. Jeez you’re mother must’ve been blinded to have loved someone as gross and as freakish as you.”

Then something snapped, Sam stood up slowly, his eyes a blazing red, as Diamond Tiara was laughing Sam dawned his Ultrasuit and suddenly shot forward, grabbing her by the throat and choking her.

“You don’t know what I’ve been through,” Sam said but it didn’t sound like him, “every day I would wake up to see my scars still there, all the bullying and abuse I went through. LEFT MY MOTHER OUT OF THIS!! AT LEAST MINE WAS CARING AND LOVING UNLIKE YOUR STUCK-UP STRUMPET OF A MOTHER!!! YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT HELL I WENT THROUGH YOU LITTLE PINK BITCH!!!!”

“SAM PLEASE STOP!!!” called a voice, Sam turned his head and saw Trixie, his eyes widening behind his mask, “please calm down and put her down.”

Sam snapped out of his fit of rage, he looked around to see a crowd had gathered around. Sam looked at what he was doing, his Ultrasuit deactivated and unwrapped from Sam’s body, he put Diamond back on the ground and as tears started to build again.

“I’m sorry,” he sobbed quietly, “I’m so sorry.”

Then it happened. Sam kneeled down in pain as he clutched his stomach. Everypony watched as his scars glowed pink and grew larger, the scars crawled down his arms and up his neck. Sam cried in pain and the scars stopped growing. Everyone had seen this and now he just wanted to get out of here.

“Sam, come to me,” Trixie said calmly, as she slowly came closer to Sam.

But Sam dawned his Ultrasuit again and then flew away. He didn’t care where he was going, he just wanted to get away from everyone.

“Sam!” Trixie called out, “come back!!! Sam!!!” It was no use; Sam was already too far away to hear. Trixie turned to Diamond who had stopped coughing and was looking the direction Sam had flew away.

“So long you demon”, Diamond cried out.

“Sam…” Dinky whimpered, as she stood up and hugged Trixie.

Twilight was getting nervous, Sam had said he’ll be back in a few minutes, a few hours ago and it was getting late. She hoped that maybe Sam lose track of time, but that was a two hours ago. She then thought that Sam was hanging out with his friends but when she got no word from anyone about Sam she grew every more nervous.

“Twilight calm down,” Spike tried to assure her, “he’s properly at a friend’s house or something.”

“But wouldn’t their parents contact me and say Sam is sending time at theirs”, Twilight said as she paced back and forth, “It’s getting really late”.

Just then there was a knock at the door. Spike went over to it and opened the door. On the other side was Trixie with a very worried expression and out of breath.

“Trixie?” Twilight said a little shocked, “what are you two doing here? And where’s Sam?”

“Twilight, he’s the reason I’m out of breath,” Trixie breathed worriedly.

“Why what happened?” Twilight asked.

“Sam’s Ultraman and has ran away,” Trixie told her, the colour seemed to drain from Twilight’s face.

“WHAT?!” Twilight yelled.

“Sam was being bullied by Diamond Tiara and she revealed his scars, which then mad him really angry and he turned into Ultraman to strangle her,” Trixie told her, “then after his dropped Dimond, his scars started to glow and grow bigger, then his suit came back, and he flew off. I tried to find him, but I couldn’t find him.” Twilight was worried and frightened for Sam’s safety. She couldn’t believe it, the thought that Sam was Ultraman and that he ran away was all too much for her and she broke down into tears.

“Spike”, she sobbed, “s-send a l-letter to P-Princess Celestia”.

“Right”, Spike said as he start to write down a letter to Princess Celestia and Luna. Once he was done writing, he sent it away to the princesses.

“What do we do now?” Trixie asked her.

“Now… we wait for… the Princesses response,” Twilight answered through sobs. No sooner she said that, Spike burped as a scroll appear. He opened it and began to read it.

“Dear Twilight Sparkle,

This is terrible news; it appears Sam’s anger has becoming stronger from the description you told me. I would say to you to go looking you him right away but due to this late hour and the fog that’s due tonight, I’m afraid that it’s going to have wait until morning. Luna’s nightguards are too busy tonight to even send one out. In the meantime, try to calm down and get some sleep.

Your Mentor,

Princess Celestia.”

Twilight was even more worried now, knowing that Sam was out there all alone and cold. But she trusted her mentor, so she made a decision.

“Okay we’ll go to sleep and find Sam in the morning”, She said. Everyone agreed as they had their dinner and got ready for bed. Trixie decided to stay with Twilight tonight to make sure she’ll be all right. As Twilight was brushing her teeth, she thought to herself, “Oh Sam, where are you?”

Sam was making his way through the Everfree Forest, he didn’t know where he was going but he thought care, he just wanted to get away from everyone. Ponies had watched him trying to commit a murder and seen him dawn his Ultrasuit. Soon a thick fog rolled in, what’s worse Sam hadn’t eaten anything all day. He saw a tree in the distends so he went to it and sat at the bottom of it.

“Well I had a good run,” he said weakly as his colour timer started flashing, “I’m doing this for your safety mum, brother and aunties.” He closed his eyes and waited for the day to come out.

But before he closed his eyes completely, he saw two figures walk up to him through the fog. Sam couldn’t make out who it was through the thick fog but hear the creatures speak to each other before passing out.

“Oh look at this. Oh it looks cold and hungry.”

“Ooh, we should take it back to our hut.”

“Good idea.”

“Come help me get it on my back.”

Chapter 8: The search for Sam

View Online

All night Twilight was tossing and turning in her sleep. She was thinking about Sam. From what Trixie told her, his eyes were red, and his voice was much deeper than before. And she couldn’t get her head around the fact that Sam was Ultraman. Twilight was very worried about him. She couldn’t stop thinking about him, soon she decided to a drink of water to try and help her sleep. She got one and was just about to go back upstairs but stopped when she saw Trixie standing at the bottom of the stairs. She seemed to have been crying.

“Trixie?” Twilight asked she seemed confused to why Trixie was up.

“I couldn’t sleep”, she answered sadly, “I couldn’t stop thinking about Sam.”

“Me too,” Twilight said walking over to her to give her a hug, “me too.”

They then heard sad chittering, Twilight and Trixie saw it was Camillia who was looking up at her with a look of sadness and worry.

“I hope he’s okay too,” Twilight said as she picked up the chameleon and patted her head, “I really do.”

“I’m so sorry, Twilight,” Trixie said, “I should of tried to stop him from flying away.”

“It’s not your fault Trixie,” Twilight assured her, “Diamond shouldn’t had pushed him too far.” The two continued to hug for a little longer.

Early next morning, Celestia’s sun was just coming over the mountains, as Twilight gathered together her friends in front of her home. Twilight and Trixie told them what had happened to Sam, and they were shocked, worried, and sad for Sam’s safety. Rainbow and Applejack were determined to find him and bring him home safely.

“Rainbow and Fluttershy look for him from above,” Twilight asked.

“Right Twilight,” Rainbow said as she flew away.

“Don’t worry Twi,” Fluttershy assured her, “We’ll find him.” Before taking off after Rainbow.

“Pinkie and Applejack search the north and west side of Ponyville,” Twilight asked. The two earth ponies nodded and ran off. Pinkie taking the north and Applejack taking the west.

“Trixie and Rarity, you two are with me in checking the Everfree forest”, Twilight said told her remaining friends. So the trio went into the Everfree forest.

Sam woke up in a room unfamiliar to him, the wall seemed to be made out of wood, he also noticed he was in a bed.

“How did I get here?” Sam thought out loud, “I was at the bottom of a tree, last thing I remember.”

Just then he heard two voices coming from the other side of the door.

“You reckon that kid is awake yet,” one said.

“I don’t know,” said the other, “let’s go check.”

Sam watched in fear at the door leading to the out the room, only to feel less scared when two Alpacas walked in. One was white and the other was brown.

“Oh look,” the white one said, “he’s awake.”

“I can see that,” the brown was replied.

“Llamas?” Sam questioned, a little nervous.

“Llama?!” the alpacas cried, they seemed offended.

“We are not llamas,” said the brown one, “we are alpacas.”

“Ok, but who are you two?” Sam asked.

“He doesn’t know who we are Scratch,” said the white one, “why don’t we tell him.”

“Hmm, yes Nuzzle,” said the brown one, “but instead of tell, we shall sing.”

“Please don’t,” Sam said but the two alpacas sung anyway.

“Here we are! Nuzzle and Scratch!"

"Best by far! Nuzzle and Scratch!”

“We’re alpacas from the Andes.”

“With hooves instead of handies.”

“No two other’s can match Nuzzle and Scratch."

"Nuzzle and Scratch!”

When the two stopped their little song, Sam was just staring at them.

“So you’re Nuzzle, and you’re Scratch,” Sam said pointing at the white one then the brown one.

“Yes that us,” Nuzzle replied.

“Now answer our question,” Scratch said, “what’s a little kid doing here in the Everfree Forest?”

Sam then began to tell Nuzzle and Scratch everything since he got to Equestria, while the two alpacas listened with interested.

“So I ran away, so I won’t hurt anyone else,” Sam finished, his eyes were tearing up again, “I did it to protect mum and everyone close to me.”

“Aww you poor thing,” Nuzzle said, patting Sam on the head.

“You can stay here as long as you would like,” Scratch replied, “but I think you should go back to your mother. She must be so worried about you.”

“I know,” Sam sighed as the tears started to fall down his face.

“Come here,” Nuzzle said as he and Scratch wrapped their arms around Sam.

“Will take you back to your mother,” Scratch declared.

Once the broke the embrace, Sam’s stomach became to rumble.

“I guess I’m pretty hungry,” he retorted.

“Nuzzle, prepare the breakfast,” Scratch told him.

“Ok Scratch,” and Nuzzle went off to the kitchen.

Meanwhile, Twilight, Rarity and Trixie had been searching for Sam almost all day and it was almost noon. The Everfree Forest was very big.

“Oh Sam where are you?” Twilight sighed, she was getting worried again.

“Rarity, Twilight,” Trixie spoke up, “maybe we should look near Zecora’s house.”

“I agree,” Rarity said, “maybe Zecora has seen Sam.”

Twilight nodded and they made their way to Zecora’s. Little did they know that something was following them, or rather hunting them. Twilight stopped after sensing something.

“Twilight what’s wrong?” Rarity asked.

“I sense something following us,” she said, looking around.

“Is it the others?” Trixie asked, looking around as well.

“No…” Twilight paused as she noticed Rarity and Trixie were staring at something right behind her, “It’s behind me, isn’t it.”

Rarity and Trixie nodded slowly as Twilight turned around to look at the follower. It was a big green dragon. It stared down at them with hunger in its eyes.

After Sam had eaten, Nuzzle and Scratch gave him a ride back to Ponyville. They were just walking, down a path, when they a rumbling sound.

“What was that?” Sam asked.

“Well it wasn’t me,” Nuzzle remarked, “was that you Scratch?”

“No it wasn’t Nuzzle,” Scratch replied. Then came a roar.

“Ok that definitely wasn’t me,” Nuzzle said.
“Look!” Sam yelled, point at the dragon that seemed to be chasing something.

“Dragon!” Called Nuzzle.

“And look it must be hunting,” Scratch said, point at Twilight, Rarity and Trixie running from the monster.

“MUM!” cried Sam so loud, Twilight heard him.

Sam?” she called out to Sam hoping she wasn’t hearing things. She looked to her left as saw Sam on top of Nuzzle’s back. Without thinking properly. She turned left and ran towards Sam, Rarity and Trixie followed her and the dragon followed them.

When Twilight, Trixie and Rarity came closer to Sam, Nuzzle and Scratch, the dragon fired a fire ball at them, it exploded upon hitting the ground, sending everyone flight.

Sam was thrown a good distances away. He rolled on the ground and stopped, he looked up to see Twilight and everyone were knocked out from the fire blast. Trixie had broken a leg, Rarity’s mane and tail where messed up as well as some cuts and grazes, Nuzzle and Scratch where laying on top of each other up against a tree and Twilight had blood pouring from a wound on her head.

Sam ran to Twilight to try and shake her awake, by she didn’t wake up. The dragon chuckled and licked his lips. Sam felt his anger rising as he stood up and dawned his Ultrasuit.

Ultraman flew to the dragon and punched it, the dragon fell back and breathed fire at Ultraman. Ultraman dodged it and punched the dragon in the stomach, the dragon grabbed Sam and then threw him to the ground. The impacted made his suit retract as he rolled on the floor.

The dragon swooped down and grabbed Twilight, and everyone in his claws. Then flew back to his cave. Sam slowly stood up, but he couldn’t walk. He had broken his leg upon the impact on the ground.

Within his mind, Sam was feeling weak as the corrupted monster chuckled.

“You’re too weak,” he mocked as he slowly started to take control. Sam’s body started to turn black and his scars glowed pink. The monster laughed, but just before he could completely corrupt Sam, the corruption stopped.

“No,” Sam muttered.

“What?” the monster said as he looked at Sam.

“The one thing that makes me more angry that Diamond Tiara telling my I’m a freak…” Sam said as he slowly stood up, “is you trying to control me!”

Suddenly the Corruption was blown off Sam as he screamed. Ultra-energy surrounded him in a ring of blue fire with grew brighter and pushed the monster back. Sam turned to face him with his eyes blazing blue.

“NO!” cried the monster, “I’m supposed to stay here until the second act.”

“Plans change,” Sam said as his raged became too much for the corrupted monster, and he was incinerated from Sam’s mind.

Sam was at last freed from his anger, his scars were gone, and his eyes were blazing blue. He dawned his Ultrasuit again and flew after the dragon.

The Dragon wasn’t too far from his cave, when suddenly Ultraman flew pass it. The Dragon, now getting annoyed, shot a powerful fire ball at Ultraman, but he just grabbed it and threw it back. The fire ball struck the dragon in the face, making it far out the sky. Ultraman created a saw-like dice of light and used it to slice off the dragon’s claw holding Twilight and the rest. The Dragon crashed onto the ground, as Ultraman caught the claws and gently dropped it on the ground. The Dragon got up as Ultraman flew high into the sky. Twilight slowly opened her eyes to see the dragon breathe a powerful breath of Fire as Ultraman. The flames engulfed Sam, as Twilight slowly got up and cried out to him.

“SAM!” she yelled fearing she may have lost her son again. But when the dragon stopped breathing fire, Ultraman was still there, completely unharmed.

Ultraman placed his arms on a plus sign on his right side, and with a swipe of his left arm down to his elbow, fired a powerful Specium Beam that sliced the dragon clean in half. The dragon’s sliced body fell to the ground, as Ultraman slowly calmed down and lowered to the ground in front of Twilight and everyone, who where now starting to wake up. He retracted his Ultrasuit and collapsed to the exhausted.

“Oh I was so worried about you Sam,” Twilight cried, tears rolling down her cheeks as she slowly made her way to Sam and gave him a tight motherly hug.

“I’m sorry mum,” Sam replied petting her mane, “I’m sorry for running away, I was afraid that I could hurt you in the same way I did to Diamond.”

“Please don’t blame yourself or scare me like that again,” Twilight cried more, “I don’t want to lose you again.”

“Can we go home now mum?” Sam asked.

“Yes,” Twilight sniffed, “yes we can.”

“But first, we need to go to the hospital,” remarked Trixie as she limped over.

When everyone walked out the Everfree Forest, the other Elements where waiting and started cheering when they saw Sam on Twilight’s back. They then saw them limping and helped them to the hospital. After getting checked up, Twilight and everyone sat in the lobby as Celestia, and Luna came in.

“We’re so glad you’re safe Sam,” Celestia said, as she nuzzled Sam’s cheek, making him giggle a bit.

“Yes indeed,” Luna retorted.

Sam then explained the battle in the forest, when Sam finished, Celestia and Luna were interested and scanned Sam to see if he was still the same. But they didn’t detected anything wrong.

“Sam?” Celestia asked, “Could you please lift up your shirt.”

Sam did so and was gobsmacked to see that his chest was clean, no scar to been seen.

“What the?” Sam expressed, “HOW!?”

“Do you not remember how they’re gone?” Luna asked.

“No,” Sam replied, “I fact I can’t remember much I was knocked out of my Ultrasuit.”

“Maybe you’re anger got so powerful, that you burned the scars right off,” Pinkie suggested.

“I guess that makes sense,” Sam said while shrugging his shoulder.

The rest of the day was celebrating Sam’s return and finally letting go of his anger. Night came and Sam was more tired than ever as Twilight tucked him into her bed with her next to him she wanted to make sure Sam was safe and hopefully got no nightmare.

“I’m so happy that you finally back to normal, and home safe and sound sweetheart,” she said giving him a kiss on the forehead.

“Thanks mum,” Sam replied, “and again, I’m sorry for running away I didn’t know what else to do after I attacked Diamond Tiara.”

“Just next time she is annoying you tell me or anyone else or just to control your anger,” Twilight responded, “now have a good night sleep honey, sweet dreams.”

“Good night mum, I love you,” Sam said before closing his eyes.

“Mummy loves you too,” Twilight replied as she into bed and turned off the light.

Sam felt safe snuggled next to Twilight, and he knew tonight he wasn’t going to get any nightmares as he had incinerated the corrupted monster from his mind. He snuggled in closer, kissed Twilight on the forehead and fell asleep. Knowing that this was going to be the first best night he has had in a long time.

Chapter 9: Luna Therapy

Sam found himself in his mind once again but seemed different. I wasn’t pitch black like time. It was a deep blue, and the atmosphere felt warm and comfiting.

“Is this my mind?” Sam asked out loud to no one in particular.

“This is your dreams young one,” said a familiar voice. Sam turned at saw Luna standing behind him, “greetings young Sam.”

“Princess Luna!” Sam said as she came close and hugged him.

“It’s good to see you too,” Luna replied.

“But how did you get here?” Sam asked.

“through the door,” Luna said pointing to an open door with Sam’s dreams on the front, “but for the past weeks since you’ve been here, it’s been locked shut.”

“Oh,” Sam commented, “I think I know why.”

“What do you mean?” asked Luna.

“It was this demonic corrupted monster with a head like a lemon but completely slipping down the middle,” Sam said, “he must have been the have been the one that was making me go berserk and making my scars grow.”

“About that,” Luna said, “do you mind telling me about you scars?”

“No, I don’t mind,” Sam replied, “but do could we talk somewhere else?”

“Like a therapy room?” Luna asked as a door suddenly appeared, It opened to reveal a room with red carpeting, large windows, a desk with a swivel chair, a coffee table with a turquoise coach behind it.

“Woah,” Sam remarked.

“Right should we get started,” Luna said, Sam turned to look at her, and she had changed forms. She was human but with her normal fur, her hair was done up in a bun and she had glasses on. On her shirt, she had a nametag that said, Dr lunabel.

“Woah!” Sam replied again.

“What? Is my bust too big,” Luna asked.

Sam didn’t reply as he walked in and sat down on the couch. Luna went over to the chair as sat down, she then got out a black notebook with a crescent moon on the front.

“Now, throughout these sessions, should there be more, I would like you to call me Lunabel,” Luna said, “understood.”

“Yes Lunabel,” replied Sam.

“Now, please tell me about how you got your scars,” Lunabel told him.

“Ok, it all started back in primary school,” Sam begun.

And this was the story he told.

(From his point of view.)

I joined my primary school at the age of five. I was a little late in joining after not being able to cope with how difficult the last primary school was. I was quiet and sat at the back of the class, so I felt like no one knew I was there, and I felt lonely. At break and lunch I would find a bench and be on my own eating my snack or lunch. I think because I was so quiet and that no one knew me, that’s how I was an easy target for bullying.

The first time was just name calling, but as time went on, they became more physical. They would punch me, kick me, slam my head against walls if I tried taking back, the lot. I couldn’t talk back to them or tell my family because I was scared and nervous of what they could do or say. One day, after having my homework tore up in front of me, I was crying in the halls but then I heard the sweetest voice ever.

“Hey, are you all right?” I looked up to see a girl that was in my class she was named Ellena, “why are you crying?”

“My homework was torn up,” I replied with sobbing of course.

The girl got out a tissue and wiped my tears away, she then helped me up and took me to the teacher. She explained that the reason I didn’t have my home was that the bullies had tore it up and insulted me that I wasn’t smart. I expected the teacher to be angry with me, because, like I say, I was scared of what she could of say or done. But she just smiled at me and told it was alright and that she would like to see me after class.

After the class, I waited for everyone to leave and went to the teacher. She told me that she wasn’t mad, she just wanted to know if I was ok. I broke down and told her everything, she comfit me and told me it was ok, and if I had any problems to tell her straight away. From that day on, I sort of saw her as a second mother.

The next day, I everything went fine, I wasn’t bullied, I spoke up a bit more and I was even smiling at the end of the day. But the day after, was the beginning of the torture. The bullies confronted me again, but they took me to an are far from everyone else, then with two holding me back, the leader pulled out a switch-blade and cut me deeply. Then they dropped my and left, but not with beating the hell out of me. I felt too weak to stand up, and they had timed it so they would get back to class on time while I get told off for being late.

I tried to crawl to the doors that would get me back in the building, but I felt like I wouldn’t get there, but then just before I could give up, I noticed Ellena, running up to me, with two other boys, who were named Joe and Thomas. The three of them had come to help me. Thomas and Joe helped me up and Ellena looked at my stomach, they took me to the medical office where the nurses patched me up. When my mother heard the news, she rushed to school to make sure I was ok.

I went home for the rest of the day and came back the next day to fine out the bullies have been ordered to stay at home for a week. I was happy and made the most of that week without them. I made friends with an overconfident hothead named James, another loner named Oscar, a nudist Kelly, and some others. But this wasn’t all just happiness, because with one lot of bullies out, there’s always more.

Now these weren’t as bad at the others that cut me, these where more of the queen of the school like girls, they were rude to everyone, not just me. I remember there being three, but I could only remember one, her name was Tazmin or Taz for short. I think she was the leader of the trio, but yeah she was rude to me, saying that I was ugly and a loser. They never got physical because they didn’t want to ruin their makeup and nails. But other than them it was a good week. But it was just that week.

The next the bullies came back and were worse than ever, they started to cut me more, every day at lunch, they would take me to the spot were I was cut and do it again and again. They would also keep cutting the scars that were already there, which then became permanent, and I started getting nightmares which made me gasp in pain as the scars with would hurt me so much. I barely slept, barely ate, the scars really did a number on me. The years passed, my siblings moved out the house, my father passed away, and then came the day the TF-Virus hit my town. And you know the rest.

“Yeah, that was my school life and how I got my scars,” Sam finished his story. He was laying on the coach now.

Lunabel just listened, asking questions at times, but mostly listened with sorrow in her heart for the child.

“I’m so sorry, to hear that, little one,” she said as she lend down and kissed his forehead.

“Thanks for that,” Sam replied.

“Your friends must of supported you through those years right?” Lunabel asked.

“Yes they did,” Sam answered, “they were like a second family to me.”

“Do you might tell me about them?” she asked.

“Sure,” Sam said.

First, there’s Ellena, she was the kindest, sweetest girl in the class. Like I told you earlier, she helped me tell the teacher about my homework. She was always by my side, she would sometimes tell the bullies to back off from me and sometimes it worked. And I… may have a crush on her.

Thomas was a great friend too, but he did have some bad anger issues. This was due to him being the smallest in our friend group and would often rage quit when playing games. But he would try to hold them back, sometimes by breaking something he brought to school that was easier fixable something by going outside and screaming his head off.

Joe was an amazing friend. He was very prideful with his work and would take charge as team leader if I wasn’t around. He was like an older brother, always looking after us and jokingly telling us off if we got out of line.

Sommer was a hard working girl. She lived in new Zealand on a farm for about 3-4 years so she had a bit of a New Zealand accent. She was the second smallest in our group of friends, but just like Thomas she was tough, she stood up to a bully and to prove that she was someone not to be messed with, she grabbed his arms and flipped him over her shoulder. She was epic and I’m glad she was my friend.

If Sommer was strong enough to flip someone over her shoulder, then Tyler could break someone in half. He was the tank of our group, he was bigger than the bullies, so they didn’t mess with him. Tyler was our bodyguard if you will, big, brave, and bold.

Millie was the quietest our group, I was the quietest but then I became the team leader, so Millie became the quietest. She wouldn’t say much, in fact we guess she was mute, as no one had never properly hear her speak, but she confirmed us wrong and she does have a voice, she would talk when trying to point out the obvious or to scream in terror.

Reece is a weird one to talk about. He’s a great guy but he’s on the gay side. We could tell in how he spoke and would often hold a rose. At first we considered him to be fancy, but then he started to tell us how much he had a thing for men and then we just went yeah he’s gay.

Erin wasn’t a bully, but she wasn’t the nicest to me, she would harass me and pull pranks on me, finally my friends stood up for me and told her to back off. I later find out that she had never had a friend, so I decided to befriend her. and it worked. She would still pull a prank or two on me, but it wasn't as bad as her previous ones.

Chloe was a nice girl too. She would help me with homework, personal problems, and other problems. Although she was nice to me, you wouldn’t want to get her on her bad side, because, like with Tyler and Sommer she would beat up those who would hurt me.

Oscar is another funny case, me and him weren’t really that close to begin with. Before, he didn't really wanted to have friends, he said he was perfectly fine being on his own, but he found out that playing on your own was really boring. So, seeing how many friends I had, he asked me if he could play with us. And the two of us became good friends.

James, as I said earlier, was an overconfident hothead. He was my most over confident friend, thinking he was very brave and often jumps to conclusion first. Me and my friends often had to get him out of trouble, but he would still help out, though he would often annoy everyone with his bosting.

Kelly is the strangest case of them all, she was a three in one type of girl. She was a nudist, an artist, and a hippie. she would often be the voice of reason when an argument was happening between us. She would wear clothes, when she was at school, and parties but at her home, and in her private life she would be in the nude.

Sophia was a bit of a bossy boots. When in a team, she would boss everyone in a way that she thinks would work. But it never did. I had enough and told her off and put her in her place, now she holds off on her bossy side. But it still would come out when trying to argue about something.

And Lastly, I think, is Phoebe. She is another strange case. She was known as the Queen of Kisses. She was giving this nickname, due to how she kisses, she could literary, kiss off your face, which came in handy if someone fainted and she would giving you the kiss of life. Or rather the vacuum kiss. She would always act like a dumb bimbo, but we knew she wasn’t, she just did that to get attention.

“Yeah, those are my friends,” Sam finished. He was laying on the other side of the coach now. Lunabel listen carefully, nodding and adding a comment every once in a while.

“Do you miss your friends?” Lunabel asked.

“Yeah, I really do,” Sam replied, “I just want to see them again, but they’re probably turned into animals by now.”

“Well, as much as I want to continue talking,” Lunabel said looking at the time, “our time is up.”

Sam looked to the time, it was getting close to morning. He got up and gave Lunabel a hug.

“Thank you so much Lunabel,” he said.

“you’re very welcome,” she replied hugging him tighter, “and remember, you don’t need to be afraid to tell us what’s wrong. If something is bothering you, please tell me, Tia, or your mother and aunts. Ok?”

“Yes Lunabel,” Sam remarked as Lunabel led him to the door.

With one more hug and kiss on the forehead, Sam opened the door and a bright light shone from the open door. And Sam was gone. Lunabel grin, as she reverted back to Luna, and opened Sam’s dream door back to the dreamscape and went to check on the other ponies.
