*Nighttime has came around, and from five hours straight, Mochal Frappe has not taken a break. He sweated a bit, which he carefully climbed the tree the best he could. Since Mochal Frappe wasn't able to lift things with his magic, he had to go retrieve it. Locking his limbs against the side, he was aiming to get Twilight's 990th addition of 'Exquisit Talents of Mythical Beasts'. The reason he didn't have a latter because Spike broke that and he had to clean it up with other scraps before doing this chore. However, right when he managed to grab it, his leg slipped against the book self so it made him fall seven feet onto the floor with a flop. He gasped for air, his back aching with sheer pain.*
".. ..Ooooowwww.." *Unable to move for a moment, he leaned his head back to see what Twilight was doing. She wasn't even concerned, but rather fully putting her concentration on writing letters to Princess Celestia. This offended Mochal Frappe, but decided it would be best to leave it be. Getting onto his 4's, he limped to do the next task. After placing the book on Twilight's table, Mochal Frappe looked at the chart to see that he had to repaint the whole house. His jaw almost opened from seeing such a task. After doing 21 chores of hard physical labor and much mental work with organizing, to where it became a really painful thing to do- he was now ordered to repaint the whole house along with more chores over that. His arm shook and closing his eyes, he felt this was going to far.*
"..Twilight, may I speak with you please?" *He asked, as nicely as he could regardless that we was enraged by this unfair quality of work she placed on him. Twilight looked back, her eyes half closed like she had better things to do, but looked back to her letter and slowly dropped the feather. She turned and a yard away as it would seem, she said.* "..I'm pretty busy Mochal Frappe. But, sure what it is then?" *Twilight's tone seemed clueless on how irritated Mochal Frappe was but probably because he hid it well.* "..You see, I have been under the influence to complete all these chores for you because I am being noble.. but.."
"..Oh Mochal Frappe. Don't tell me you're just going to quit now. You need to finish these chores."
"..Repaint your whole entire house with all these opened space rooms? Plus there's more chores on here.. you expect me to finish all the chores? *She gave him a cold look, but her tone didn't change. She started talking to him as she walked toward Mochal Frappe.*
"...As a true friend, you would help me through all I ask Mochal Frappe. You still owe me, and I thought you would understand how much the chores are needed to be done. I'm disappointed in you for how you're treating me and our friendship." *Hearing this, Mochal Frappe twitched and snarled through his nostrils. He couldn't take it, he was to upset by this. What's worse is that he felt people walked over him. Losing his job, a pony stealing from him, a dragon burning his well made cupcakes, and now Twilight doesn't appreciate all he has done for her. He had enough.*
"OKAY. First of all, you're a hypocriate saying that when you actually treated me so poorly this whole time! Who makes a friend or any friend do ALL these chores Huh? Clean the bathroom, refresh Aloysious's food and water, scrub all the stains from the kitchen all underneath the stove and counters, buy more supplies for my studies, rearrange the books again, you misplaced the thirteen carts of bread with the toast- ENOUGH!! Twilight Sparkle, I am disappointed in you for making me go through all this." *While he was saying that, he was walking towards Twilight who was standing still. He was the one talking while heading towards her.*
"What type of friend are you to hold grudges? It was an accident! I said sorry, I made up for it, killing myself over which you don't even care about the cuts and bruises I gained from ripping the weeds off your TREE, outside in the cold!! Even strangers treat me with decency while you're taking advantage of our friendship. You're not the one to talk, you aren't a true friend and most importantly- you're the most horrible friend I ever HAD!!" *He was right up to her, panting from letting out all the steam. She just looked at him, with an expression of utter surprise.*
*He knew what was coming. She was going to flip out and hate him forever for saying such things. It was against his nature to even speak like that, but he really was angry with Twilight. He looked at her, a mad expression on his face expecting her to snap. But.. something happened. Her lips slightly shook, eyes getting watery as she made little noises of short pouting cries.* ".. I..I'm ..a terrible friend? .. ....I- I.. .uha.. yua..." *Mochal Frappe's mad expression quickly dropped. He stood there, speechless on seeing how Twilight was reacting.*
".. ..Twilight..?" *Getting a bit nervous. He didn't even see this coming. She looked at him, tears strolled down her cheeks which suddenly hurt Mochal Frappe, seeing her like this. She kept repeating the short pouts, cries ready to burst out. Drops hit the floor, her face changing to a depression and voice rising higher with sadness.*
"..Tw-Twilight.. I..do-" *Before he could finish, Twilight had an outburst of crying. It wasn't even the humorous crying with a silly 'wah' noise most ponies make. She made shrills of cries, burring her face into her arms, sounding like she was breaking down. Mochal Frappe was speechless now. He didn't even mean to hurt her at all, but do so this badly?. She wailed and sunk deeper, her hair spread out as she started to lie on the ground, sobbing harshly.*
Holy crap.. what did I do? She's crying.. cause of what I said? There's no way this should be happening.. oh man.. OH this is bad. What do I do?! She may be faking it but.. *Not wanting to stand around anymore, he had to kneel to her spite that his was aching in order to talk over her cries. He said in a kind manner.* "..Hey, Twilight.. I am so.. so sorry. That was so wrong of me to do, I am sorry.. I'm sorry. Please, don't cry.. I am here. I am not leaving. Twilight.. please, don't cry.." *She wouldn't stop, but she lifted her face up to look at his. Her expression made Mochal's heart sink. Her eyes were sore red, tears making her cheeks pale with wet tears, lips vibrating madly. She was devastated beyond reason. Her hair was even getting a bit messy and her voice trailing off to pitches of crying wails but faint at most.*
"..I ..uhy.. .. .." *sniffs a few times, unable to speak at first* "-don't deserve to... .be Princess Celestia's..student.. ... I.. .hate myself.. I . yuhh. can't.. .ever.. m-me..mean ..anything t-to.. .. .friends.."
*Mochal Frappe closed his eyes, feeling more guilt then he ever had in his entire life. This wasn't like her.. but somehow he got to her then probably even Princess Celestia could if she was mad at Twilight. He didn't understand, but he couldn't leave her like this. He'd die of such guilt to of left her this way, being the cause of her depression.* "..No. I am a horrible friend to make you cry so much. I'm sorry... You're worth it more then any other pony could to Princess Celestia. She chose you.. to be her #1 student for a reason.. No- personal student. You're incredible.. beautiful.. everything a pony would envy. You're powerful with magic, you.. impress everyone with how brilliant you are and.. overall- you're my closest best friend who helped me learn magic. ..I.. am sorry for hurting you."
*Twilight looked up again, sniffing one more time and really meant to ask him.* "..Yo-you.. mean that? Am I that worth it? ..Could I actually be something to Princess Celestia? ..I don't want to let my friends down.. and be a horrible, horrible friend.. .I-I.. I uuaah.." *She wanted to cry more, but felt arms hold her up gently as Mochal Frappe hugged her. He closed his eyes, putting one hoof behind her head while the other was on her back. His legs were supporting his body while she had no effort put into the hug. Her eyes were open, tears dripping against his shoulders but he did not care. He had his face right next to hers and spoke once more.*
"..You're worth everything to me Twilight.. why do you think I went through making it up to you? I care about you.. and I promise, to never hurt you again. I'm sorry with all my heart. Can you forgive me..?" *She breathed softly, then closed her eyes and fully hugged him. She kept crying, but she didn't make the noise anymore but instead answered him.* "..Oh yes.. yes I will. I couldn't stay mad of you.. ..I need you Mochal Frappe. Just like this.. I don't want you to let go.. Don't let go of me.. .I just want to.. have you close and not lose you as a dear good friend.." *Brushing his cheek against hers, he kept on hugging even though it was really hard to be on his two legs. They just hugged there, Twilight silently crying but her heart was healing when Mochal Frappe'sslowly becoming at ease.*
*mark had woken up from..."...what happen...my head hurts...."he did not remember what had happen he was flying then..."this would be a lot easier if i could remember what happened...where am i?"he made a quick look around he was outside of town and...."i fell asleep in a ditch!?!" he also noticed it was nighttime and he saw a crater OK....whatever DID happen...it involved me crashing...that explains the pain... he staggered into town it was pretty quiet there was a few other ponies outside what he also noticed was that his flight helmet was broken revealing one green eye but that wasn't his biggest concern at the moment at this rate he had no idea what he needed to do but what he wanted to do was figure out what happened...*he staggered around a bit more and then collapsed on the side of the road*
Hurley stood in the middle of the field looking for his ball. "I don't get it. It should've landed somewhere around here" he said to himself. He looked up towards the sky. Maybe it was still up there? No, it wasn't there. So where was it? Had it changed direction? "But the ball was coming down. I've never seen the ball change direction on it's way down." Could it change direction on the way down? Hurley didn't think so.
What Hurley didn't know was that a sudden gust of wind had changed the direction of the ball on it's way down and sent it straight towards Ponyville. He didn't even think of it as a possibility. He was certain that the ball had to be around here somewhere.
He decided to keep looking for it for a while. He looked towards the sun and figured that it would start to get dark in about an hour. He figured he would find it eventually, hopefully before it got dark.
"Alright." *Vitera said, surprised that the dragon wanted to come with her. She had been traveling alone, for several years now.
Miara had died of old age, in what seemed like a happier time. She missed her friend and mentor.* "I don't know where I'm going. I want to talk to Fluttershy. And I have to get to Canterlot sometime." *She thought about telling him what she was going to do there, but decided not to.* "You're welcome to come with me, Sulfur."
*They left the house, after they had written a note to Mochal, thanking him for his kindness, but explaining that they were leaving. Vitera pinned the note to Mochal's front door.*"Let's get going then."
*She took the lead, since the dragon seemed to want to walk behind her. They reached the house next to Mochal's. Vitera knocked on the door and waited for someone to open. No one opened it.*
"Hello? Are you home, Fluttershy?" *Vitera said and knocked again. She had seen the pegasus, at her house, not that long ago. No one opened it, this time either. Vitera decided to look in through the window, to see if she could see someone. She could see the bunny from before, but no Fluttershy.*
"Hello, bunny.." Vitera said and wondered if he could understand her. "Is Fluttershy home?"
*The bunny responded, by pointing at one of the other rooms. Vitera was surprised that they understood each other and a little irritated at Fluttershy, for not opening the door.*
"Fluttershy?" Vitera knocked again. "I know you're in there. I just want to talk with you."
*Fluttershy didn't respond this time either. Vitera turned to Selphurian.*
"What do you think we should do?" *Vitera didn't want to leave, without at least talking to Fluttershy.* "Maybe, we should just leave.." *She said disappointedly.*
*Icy Rain had been sitting with her read legs lay down at the edge of the tall build as if she is mimicking a stone gargoyle. She is contemplating at the ordeal she just had from the football.*
"Ok just relax, you almost had an accident but its ok your fine, you didn't get hurt."
*She lean over to see the ponies below but as she look down her vision got blurry. She quickly got up and walk back against the building wall as she panic. She started to breath heavily.*
"Oh no! I am NOT having that fear all over again! I had flown plenty of time and sometime do some free fall and I've turn out alright.
*She close her eyes as she start picturing her mind on the waterfall she love to visit. She visualise the exciting feeling and experiences when she jump off at the top of the waterfall and splashing down to the water below. These wonderful feeling had cause her to calm down and breath at a normal rate.*
*As she opens her eyes, she is back to normal. She looks across the clock tower and saw that she was on her break for too long.*
*She leap off at the building as she hurry to all the places that Rainbow Dash would or should have finish.*
Michaela held back a chuckle as she watched her nervous friend.
"Seems like you found what you needed! Where do you need to go next?"
Michaela suddenly remembered something
"Oh that's right, you haven't been in Ponyville that long, have you? I mean, being as I found you on that hill, and-" She shook her own nervousness off, what did she have to get nervous about?
"Anyway, do you know if you have a place to stay here?"
"If you don't, there's plenty of room in my house, along with an unused bedroom" Michaela asked and offered along with a weak smile
Meanwhile Mutipi was having two voices screaming at him in his head. One was trying to get him to say something while the other was freaking out over the fact a girl (And a pretty one at that) asked him to stay with her.
Say something you dolt! She is staring at you!!
Oh my god oh my god oh my god!!! she is inviting us to her house! WHAT DO WE DO!?
"I um... Um... I..."
He finished that "Not-even-a-sentence" Sentence with a small squeak.
Both voices in his head said at once.
Yeah. We're boned.
Feeling she made him feel uncomfortable with her question, she tried to "patch" it up a bit and said:
"It's alright, you don't have to decide right away! There's still plenty of daytime left, so you can just make your decision later!" She said with a smile.
"Anyway, is there anywhere else that you want to see, or anything you might need? Today I don't really have any place to be.
Or rather I hope not."
She chuckled as she finished her last sentence
*As if time stood still for awhile, they kept hugging. Mochal Frappe leaned back after his legs were nearly about to drop and he sat down to look at Twilight. With his hoof, he wiped the tears away from her eyes in a swift yet gentle motion which made Twilight smile in a way that shows appreciation since Mochal Frappe cared about her. She closed her eyes, having one last tear stroll down her cheek and she mentioned.* "..I think I learned an important lesson today. Care to share the moment with me, Mochal Frappe..?"
*The way she asked in such a sweet tone made Mochal Frappe feel weird inside. But, without thinking he replied to her.* "..How could I miss out on such an opportunity?" *Feeling better, Twilight waited for Mochal Frappe to get up and then both came to her stand where the letter remained unfinished. She used her magic to put that letter aside and have a new one. She then lifted the feather out of thin air and begun to write with Mochal Frappe at her side.*
Dear Princess Celestia,
Today was different then most days. I met up with a very good friend of mine that you may of remembered back then. His name is Mochal Frappe, who came to help me today.
I admit that I overdid it by requesting him to complete an unsettled set of chores, which I also scolded him on my behalf of being wrong. He told me how he felt, and it really did something to me. I realize now that there is an important lesson in every friendship: To always respect your friends and never take advantage of them. To always forgive and make anew with much promise to treat your friends better then you would treat yourself.
Not only that, but there's something else too. I value our friendship so much, and know that he does just as much. When you make a mistake, you should always resolve it and show just how much you cherish that friend.
Even though I was wrong and don't deserve Mochal Frappe.. he was there for me, cared about me more then I ever realized it. He's a true friend and I won't ever overlook that again.
Your Faithful Student,
*As soon as she was done, Twilight sealed the letter and had placed it in Spike's 'To Send' inbox, which she recently set up in case she was gone or when she was busy doing something else. She turned to Mochal Frappe, which he was able to read the letter before she was done sealing it* "..Thank you. If it wasn't for you, I think I may of done worse toward my other friends. I'm glad we can share our time together like this, it means so much to me that we're still good friends."
*Nodding, Mochal Frappe had a warm smile expressing.* "..I agree. You'll never lose me as a friend Twilight and how could I lose such a legacy like yourself anyways?" *That made Twilight look at him with dazzling eyes. She blushed a bit and looked the other way, not helping but to smile with joy. Mochal Frappe blushed a bit too, because he was starting to feel something he never did before toward any pony.*
*Nothing lasts forever though, because then Spike came up and saw the two ponies. He also noticed how everything was much cleaner, and the atmosphere seemed really tidy. Twilight heard him so she turned with a cheerful expression.* "Ooohh Spike! I'm so glad you're here. Mind if you send the letter in your inbox to Princess Celestia? I need her to see it right away! No delays!" *Spike really didn't see how she was so happy, speaking like she was a child on sugar. But, doing what she asked he grabbed the scroll, took a breath and breathed fire on it. The letter vanished and was on it's way to Princess Celestia.*
*Twilight looked at Mochal Frappe, for a moment before speaking.* "It's getting late.. maybe, you should go back home. I don't want to keep you here any longer, you've done a lot for me. So-" *Before she could finish, Mochal Frappe placed his forehead against hers, avoding his horn from poking here. Their horns were side by side, but the foreheads were together, Twilight suprirsed by it. But, Mochal Frappe notified her.* "It's perfectly ok. I actually am grateful I had the day with you. I would like to see you again soon.. if that would be ok with you Twilight." *Acting shy, she looked down with only her eyes, but then half closed with a smile like she really meant to say this* "Yes.. of course. I wouldn't ever want to miss that." *Smiling with a loving expression, Mochal Frappe slowly departed from her and walked toward the door, opened it, and looked back. She was smiling, not leaving her eyes off of him. His last words were before going out.* "Please take care.. you deserve your beauty sleep Twilight. You already are the shining image of what Princess Celestia wants you to be after all." *She looked at him, touched deeply by it. Without much else to say, he shut the door behind him and walked him just thinking about her. Twilight couldn't help but lean back against the wall closest to her window, and slide down it saying.* "Aaaaaaaawwwwweeeehhhhh~" *Which was the result of a relieful sigh.*
Grateful for being allowed to tag along with this image of a unicorn, Selphurian forgot about how we hadn't actually gotten to sleep for a few hours. Interest drove his body now, and kept him awake as long as it was maintained. So, upon Fluttershy not answering the door, and his attention still focused on Vitera, Selphurian noticed the disappointment in her words. He wouldn't stand for that!
"No way! If it's important that you talk to Fluttershy, then I'll get you talking to Fluttershy."
*Not knowing who Fluttershy was or why Vitera wanted to meet her, Selphurian beast-languaged (sign language for creatures) the bunny and asked him if there was a back door. The bunny friend put a finger across his mouth, and signaled with a thumb back towards the kitchen, moving slowly himself*
*Selphurian moved around back quickly to find that the bunny was unlocking the door, and giving a thumbs up, ran back around to lead Vitera inside*
"Here you are milady."
*Several minutes later she had found that Rainbow Dash was true to her words as each of today works had already been completed. She hurries to the last work for today to find Rainbow Dash is about to start moving a mass of clouds. She call her out as she gasp for air*
I can't believe I'm saying this but sorry for arriving late! I'm even more sorry for ever doubting you Rainbow Dash! When the work is getting late you really do pull your weight about!
Ah don't sweat it Icy. Ha I get my chilling out is starting of on you!
*She let out a laugh*
"What? I wouldn't let your influences get the better of me!"
*Despite how annoy she is from her comment but she couldn't help but to laugh back seeing how she was only just joking.*
"Anyway let finish this last work for today Icy as together"
"I couldn't agree with you more."
The both of them got to work as they both start pushing a big cloud with their hooves.
*Vitera smiled at the dragon. She thought he was cool, since he had just gotten help from the inside, to break into Fluttershy's house.*
"Thank you, Sulfur. You're cool." She said and thought that he could probably prove very useful, especially in the future, when he would be a full grown dragon. Vitera laughed maniacally, when she remembered her childhood dream of conquering the world. It was a dream she had given up on, long ago, but maybe, just maybe it would be possible with a dragon at her side.*
*Vitera snuck into the kitchen. Afraid that Fluttershy, might make a run for it, if she heard them.They moved silently through the house and found their way to the room, which the source on the inside, the bunny, had pointed to.*
"Here we are." She whispered and poked her head into the room. It was the bedroom. She couldn't see Fluttershy inside the room though, but the window was open. She walked over to the window and looked out. She could see Fluttershy in the sky, flying away from them. "Damn! I just wanted to learn how to talk with small animals." She said and sat down on the bed.*
*Vitera remembered how Selphurian had gotten them into the house. "Wait... Can you teach me how to speak with animals, Sulfur? I'm on a quest to learn everything I can about the world." She said and made a book fly out of her satchel. She opened it. On some of the pages there was words, but it was a big book and most of it was empty. Miara had given her this book, after her death. "I'm supposed to write it down in this book. My mentor, Miara, was the one who started it, but she passed it onto me after her death. There's just too much learn for one pony, during it's lifetime. I may need to pass it on myself, to a student. When my time to leave this world has come." *She hadn't told anyone this before. It was one of her many secrets.*
Indigo was amazed that she managed to introduce herself to Heron, she looked at her mother who was smiling proudly at her. Indigo's shy form slowly melted into a young, and happy one.
"Yeah, my favorite is the Buckwheat Blueberry pancakes." replied the young filly to the peagasus
"Which seems to be ready!" said the mother as she went to go get the food tray and bringing it over to the table. "I do believe that this is yours." nudge the tray over to Indigo, 3 blueberry buckwheat pancakes. "Enjoy dearie, you earned it.."
A bright beaming smile spread across the young one's face, and, without hesitation, dug in.
*The both of them had fly back to the weather control centre of Ponyville which is located high above the sky. They both got their work cards as their supervisor had stamped it for their job well done. Afterward they both fly toward Sweet Apple Acres as Icy Rain still remembers Applejack words*
*As they arrive, Applejack is somewhat still cross with Rainbow Dash but Icy Rain step in that everything is fine now. Applejack is glad by the turn of event as she got out Apple Pies for the two to chow down. There was no surprise that Icy Rain had found her pies to be delicious.*
*After they ate they soon began to talk about today activity while helping Applejack clean the plates. She heard about what Applejack and Rainbow Dash today while she mention about the whole football flying and the moving clouds.*
*As soon as she notice that it is night time already as she gasp that the conversation had made her forgot about the time. She thanks Applejack for the tasty pie and Rainbow Dash for keeping her words as she is the first to leave as she fly back to her home.*
*It was too late for her to visit the waterfall which she is disappointed about but she will make up for it by visiting it tomorrow seeing how she got the day off tomorrow.*
*Soon she is hovering above her home. Unlike Rainbow Dash cloudy house, her house is a penthouse on top of a wooden tower right in one of the shopping street. She landed on the launch pad of her penthouse which had clear marking of hooves so she know the exact location to take off and land.*
*She enters her home as she turn on the lights. She immediacy inspect the six scrolls on the table. She remember the scroll were deliver to her this morning which she place them over there for her to read later. As expected the six scroll each below to her childhood friends who each had written about their days during Winter Wrap Up. She sat comfortable on her sofa as she start reading the letter send from Herbal Tonic first.*
"Oh, I uhh, the way I talk with animals you need... well..."
*Selphurian wiggled all of his fingers simultaneously in front of him*
"I think we should keep trying to find Fluttershy instead of finding a way to grow you apposable thumbs."
*Selphurian snickered at the mental image, but then realized that this pony may not appreciate being laughed at, and so tried to change the subject*
"Oh jeez, I'm sorry... I'm not even sure why you want to learn. Did, umm. Did Miara want you to learn all about the world, before she... hmmm"
Don't upset her now! She thinks I'm cool, I gotta keep up the suave! *He thought nervously*
"Well, that sucks. I don't think we made a very good impression on Fluttershy." Vitera said and remembered that Mochal probably knew Fluttershy. She could ask him or try and grow wings or fingers. She made a pen fly up from her satchel and wrote a quick note in her book.
"You may need fingers to communicate with animals. Though some ponys seems to be able to do it. A little bunny understood me, but he seemed surprisingly intelligent."
"Miara wanted someone to continue her work, since she wasn't done with her book and I happened to be the one she chose for the task." *Vitera said it with pride. She had read the book, it was full of useful information about the world. She didn't know what her mentor had planned on doing with it though, after it was finished.*
"Do you want to hear a secret?" *She asked, but didn't wait for an answer. "I'm on my way to Canterlot, to see if I can learn how Celestia controls the sun." *Vitera was an unicorn. She had heard rumours that Celestia was the one that controlled the sun with magic. If she could learn that, she would be just as powerful as her.* "I have plans." She smiled. "But for some reason, I feel like I have more to learn here in Ponyville. What do you think we should do? I can't fly after Fluttershy. Maybe, we should just go ask Mochal about it? Or take a walk?"
"Woah woah woah woah, slow down there sister. Control the sun!? That's insane! Celestia's had over 1000 years to perfect that magic! Heck, the only ones still alive long enough to remember back then are Princess Luna and the Elder dragons! Plus I doubt she just keeps it written down somewhere!"
Was she insane? Control the sun, her? A young runaway unicorn?
"Hah! Well you sure have the spirit! If it means anything Vitera, I believe you can do it."
He didn't, he didn't know the extent of her magic, and learning a 1000 year old secret would be hard, harder than hard, but it wouldn't benefit anyone by saying that now
"Anyway, I think you're right. Mocha probably knows Fluttershy, living close-by and all, lets go find him so he can calm her down. Come on!" *Sulpherion said excitedly, wondering just what kind of mare he had fallen for*
"Uh... No... I don't got anywhere else to go...
I still can't believe she is inviting me to live with her! I cannot blow this!
Multipi managed to gather up the rest of his courage and said quickly and quietly:
"I-I-I w-would love t-to stay with y-you... If y-you want me t-to of course..."
@Solo-Wing: As soon as he said that, Michaela's face grew bright, she felt... in a sense relieved to finally have found a close friend.
"It's no trouble at all! Plus it would be nice... to finally have some company..."
Michaela didn't know what else to say, but she couldn't just leave the conversation in an awkward position like that.
"Um, it's going to be dark out pretty soon. So I might as well show you where I live so you'll know where to go at the end of the day!"
"Of course you can still get whatever else you need done.... I mean when we arrive you don't have to turn in for the night, although it is pretty late, I mean I'm just showing you where it is and so when you are done- Oh dear, I'm going in circles again aren't I? Sorry."
"Um, it's this way"
She felt foolish after that. She didn't want to creep Multipli out, but she fears she just made the situation worse.
Walking back to her home, she just feared that she had made herself out to be a completely different pony than what she actually was. She did care deeply about Multipli, so much she wanted to make sure that she didn't give off the wrong impression.
*Vitera thought about it for a second. Nothing was impossible, some things just took more time to make possible. She liked his honesty.
There was something special with Selphurian. She had never met someone like him. She liked the idea of having a dragon close by for protection, especially if that dragon grew into a huge firebreathing beast.*
"Yes, I believe I can do it too. I would love to have you accompany me. As a team, I'm sure we could accomplish a lot!" *She said enthusiastically and smiled.* "Let's go talk to Mochal, hopefully he didn't notice that we were gone. Remember to not tell anyone though. I trust you, Sulfur."
*Vitera put the book and her pen back in the satchel. They left the house and went back to Mochal's house.* "Elder dragons, you said?" She said and turned to Selphurian, when they were on the doorstep to Mochal's house.
*Mochal Frappe walked for home in the dark, having his horn using the light spell to help him see where he was going. It was near midnight, and he didn't wish to bump into anything. He smiled the whole way, remembering how much passion he felt between Twilight and him. Probably a feeling he never had with any other pony.*
*Seeing his house up ahead, he dimmed the light in his horn and walked straight for it. He opened the door which was unlocked, and before walking in he saw a shape of a square attached to the front door. He used the light spell again and read the note. It was from Vitera and Sulfur. They were grateful as it seems and were going on their way toward somewhere else.* "..Ah, I took to long. Least I won't have to slave myself over them. Hope they'll be ok though, but I am sure a dragon that lives in the Ever-Green forest will be fine.. why am I talking to myself?"
*Mochal Frappe turned on the lights within his house, which he then noticed something laying on his sofa. It was a pony, chewing on some of his personal snacks that he kept in the drawer. The pony looked toward Mochal Frappe, who slowly had a chip and munched it with a smile. Mochal Frappe sighed and closed the door behind him, for it was Derpy who probably emptied out his fridge too.* "I emptied out your fridge."
"..Dangit Derpy. You always come to my house when you're done mailing letters and you eat my popcorn chips. Why? And you emptied my fridge? You've stayed here for months now Derpy.. I mean- I let guests have a place to stay but it's like you live here now." *His face wasn't mad but concerned for her. He really didn't know what to do, he wouldn't just throw her out.*
*Slowly, she ate another chip while looking at him. He never understood her, but he still appreciated her because since he allows her to stay, she delivers his letters first. Even though she puts it in his mailbox rather then just handing it to him on the way out.* "But, I like it here." *Her way of talking was so simple it even made Mochal Frappe roll his eyes.* "You know..it's fine. You don't bother me and you're good company. What would you like to do tonight?"
".. Count my chips slowly-" "Derpy.. do you count everything you eat? Isn't that annoying..?" *He asked, giving an odd expression towards her. Though, she seemed happy and smiled like a cute school girl.* "Watching my calories! If I get fat, I can't deliver letters. So, got to count."
*Giving a smile for the way she talked, he sat next to her and decided to start counting with her, which he was use to her eyes now. Back then, he felt bad but she didn't even seem sad or upset by her condition. He was just glad she had a place to stay and that she always prefer being at his house every night. It's almost been 7 months so he figured this was like her home now. Though, he'll need a job to replace all the food she wastes. He doesn't even know what she does with all his supplies in the fridge but he didn't want to ask.*
This trip's working out better than expected!
Wait, something about...
"Yeah! Elder dragons. My parents taught me all about dragon culture when I was little. They say those elder dragons ar-"
*Stopping mid-sentence well he opened the door, knowing Mocha probably wouldn't mind, one thought went through Selphurian's head when he looked inside*
*Derpy and Mochal Frappe were on the sofa, her eyes in odd positions as usual while she laid her head on Mochal's neck from behind, looking at his own mail. He noticed the door opening which he realized they probably would get the wrong idea. Derpy had her arms around his chest as her head was next to his, her chin resting on his neck.*
"..Oh? Hey guys.. I thought you left. Uh.. well yea this is-"
"Are you here to read too?" *Mochal glanced at her with only his eyes, unable to even think on how silly she was being. But, he looked back at them and shifted his head as a 'come in' gesture.* "..Well, come on in then. No need to stand there staring please."
*Vitera looked at the grey pony.* "No, I'm not here to read. I've already taken all the interesting books from this place." *She said and thought about it.* "Unless I missed some."
*Vitera turned to Mochal.* "I wanted to talk to Fluttershy, but she ran away. Could you help us with that?" She asked, still a little irritated because of how Fluttershy had acted.*
*Mark woke up from the side of the road his mind was still trying to figure out what happened when it hit him
oh CRAP where is my pack... he had figured he had been robbed...in mid-air ok...there is no way a pony did this... he really didn't want to think a pony did this..or at least one from this town...he still couldn't figure out what did this but whatever did...it took all his money
...well now what am i going to do? it was already late and he was tired looks like another night in the clouds with that he took to the sky thinking what tomorrow will hold.
*Hearing this, Mochal Frappe closed his eyes and took a soft breath before saying anything.* "..Yea, Fluttershy is a very nervous pony. She's even scared of her own shadow, but probably the sweetest pony I ever met. It's to late now to go see her though, so we'll have to wait tomorrow."
*Derpy who was holding onto Mochal Frappe, had a slight smile with nothing in mind but to view the two figures before her. A pony and a dragon, which made her let go and walk up to the dragon. Her eyes shifted to normal, then to the sides at odd angles again before speaking.* "Are you Spike's friend? You're a dragon, dragons look alike and breath fire.. it's really hot so don't touch it, ok."
*Mochal Frappe rubbed his face a bit, a little embarrassed but laughed slightly to himself all as well.*
"O-Okay...L-Lead the w-way..."
*Vitera didn't want to wait until morning, but it seemed like they had no choice. She yawned. "I guess we'll have to get some sleep then. Can we stay here, Mochal?
*Icy Rain had spent the evening reading all of her friend letters and writing back to each of them. As she finishes writing a letter to Silver Midnight she let out a big yawn. She looks at the clock to find that it had now turn midnight.*
"Wow I haven't been up this late since the Summer Sun celebration."
She quickly rolls up her written letters into scrolls as she walks on toward her mailbox by the launch pad for the mail Pegasus to pick up in the morning. She places them inside as she hurries back inside. She brush her teeth turn the lights off and got into bed.
"I can't wait for tomorrow well I mean later, ha I started to sound like Bright Dawn."
*Her mind soon drifted away as she fall asleep."
@Impluse_101: "Well, that's good to know, I'll make sure and have some of them then. I hope you enjoy your meal!"
*So, she seems to have calmed down, way to go Heron. Now how about you go get yourself some food? Maybe if you eat them fast enough, you'll be able to talk with them some more.*
After her mother came back with the pancakes, Heron left to go back to his own seat and ordered some pancakes for himself.
Michaela stopped as they came to her home.
It was almost no different from many other houses seen in Ponyville. She liked to keep it simple, yet sophisticated.
She unlocked the door and the two went inside, pictures of family decorated a section of wall to the left along with a couch, desk, fireplace and a bookcase along with various potted plants.
To the right was the kitchen along with the fridge and way to the basement.
Michaela showed Multipli all these rooms along with the rest in her home.
As they went up the stairs, "Over here is my bedroom, nothing much to be seen here, except for that bed, mirror, and bookcase. And I guess the lamp" she joked. That.... was so stupid.... now what?
Over to the left, she could see the door to her "upper garden" idea she was trying out. Plants of all types sat under a balcony with a glass roof overtop. She read something about things being hotter when placed under glass, and she figured that they were closer to the sun here. She didn't think he'd be interested, and moreover to think that she was some sort of plant freak
Turning to the right "And this is where you will be staying" she said as she showed him a blue room with a large desk and chest of drawers, along with a bookcase.
"I thought about turning it into something different.... since, you know... I live alone and all, but there's always that chance a friend may stop by needing a place to stay!"
Her voice grew a bit higher for a second as she pronounced "friend."
She hoped he didn't notice, and more importantly that he liked the place. She didn't exactly tidy up, although that wasn't too big as a problem, as she always tries to make as little a mess as possible.
"Well, I do hope you enjoy your stay, but I think I'm gonna get some rest. You can help yourself to the fridge if you get hungry, it's perfectly alright." Do not blow it, do not act like a freak!
"Um, I guess I'll see you tomorrow then! Have a good night"
They stopped in front pf her house, which looked a lot like the houses around it.
Hm. Kinda generic looking.
After showing him the lower floors they went up to the second floor.
"Over here is my bedroom, nothing much to be seen here, except for that bed, mirror, and bookcase. And I guess the lamp"
... Was that a joke?
When she showed him her greenhouse.
His thoughts instantly went to the sciences behind a greenhouse.
Greenhouses heat up because incoming visible solar radiation (for which the glass is transparent) from the sun is absorbed by plants, soil, and other things inside the building. Air warmed by the heat from hot interior surfaces is retained in the building by the roof and wall. In addition, the warmed structures and plants inside the greenhouse re-radiate some of their thermal energy in the infra-red, to which glass is partly opaque, so some of this energy is also trapped inside the glass-
He gave his head a quick shake to snap him out of it.
Now is not the time. I should be listening to her
After the rest of the tour he wished her goodnight and went into his room for bed.
*While it was nighttime on that day where Sulfur and Vitera came to sleep over Mochal's house while Derpy was there as well, Derpy was awaiting the dragon to respond to her. Yet, he didn't. Time was up for him as Mochal started to tell. His eyes grew heavy, at first thinking about how to reply to such a pony who informed him obvious answers. Then, suddenly he drowsed off and curled on the floor to sleep. Mochal Frappe got off the sofa and tilted his head to see if the dragon was least aware that he's going to sleep. Nope, he was out like a light.*
"Alright Derpy.. looks like he had used all his will-power to stay up this late. It's past midnight and we got to get some rest now. it's been a long day after all, so off we go." *Derpy didn't smile, but rather stared at Mochal Frappe. Suddenly, she closed her eyes and smiled replying.* "Okay. We'll sleep- wha? Wait.. where will we sleep?" *That actually baffled Mochal Frappe, because that was a good question. He only had a bed to support 1-2 ponies, but obviously this was a tricky situation.*
*He turned to Vitera who also grew very tired, spite that she seemed pretty lively a little while ago ready to head on out.* "..Okay, well you can have my bed then for it's upstairs as you remem-" *She didn't wait for him to finish. She turned and walked tiredly up the stairs heading for his bed. As soon as she laid onto the bed, she was out cold.*
*Mochal Frappe leaned his body and tugged the dragon onto his back, grinding his teeth for it was pretty difficult to do. But, Derpy actually helped by tugging her head into his body to get on and thus Mochal Frappe had the strength to let him slide onto the sofa, which using his teeth he tugged him into a nice 3 layered blanket used to heat things up a bit. The dragon smiled in his sleep, meaning this pleased Sulfur. Now that the two places to normally sleep at were taken up, him and Derpy had no where to sleep.* "..Crap." *As soon as he said that, Derpy had her eyes narrowed and gasped at him. She gave him a soft headbutt, which Mochal rubbed his forehead with his hoof* "Ow.. ah- I said it again huh? I'm sorry.. even after all this time you still get on me about that." *Derpy quickly changed her expression to a normal smile and just looked at him.*
*Mochal Frappe actually realized that the only place to sleep left was the upstairs couch which extends for the feet, but it's also like a flat-sided bed if you lay a sheet for support. He could sleep there, but there's no where else for Derpy to sleep. That's when it hit him- he'll have to share the couch with Derpy. He bit his lip and tried to think on how to tell Derpy this.*
"..Hey, Derpy.. I have a couch upstairs. And.. this may sound weird or odd to you.. but, since all our usual spots of sleeping is taken like your bed and this sofa here- we'll have.. .to.. .share the couch." *Mochal Frappe looked worried, afraid she'll react like he's some weirdo. She just blinked at him, an emotionless expression but then she yelped.* "I call left!" ".. What?"
"Left. I like sleeping on the left. It's comfty and good. Really good if it's the left."
".. ..O..O-kay." *Mochal Frappe was not expecting that. She simply walked up stairs to the room next door where Vitera was sleeping, and extended the couch on her own. She bounced on it, and doing what she usually does - she swoops in the air and slides herself in without arms perfectly, slightly flapping her wings. She held the sheet like a child and smiled with much excitement as she saw Mochal Frappe coming. Her teeth showing, eyes wide, she snuggled and looked very happy. He didn't know why, but he simply lifted the cover and got into the couch's sheet. He turned his face which Derpy was looking right at him, some of her hair covering her forehead. Not knowing what else to do, his eyes drifted to the ceiling.*
".. Ssoo.. yea. Here we are.. together, in bed.. you know. How are you feeling Derpy?" *He asked, looking back at her which his eyes widened a bit. She kept looking, but slightly blushing now. She kept tapping her hooves together, in a shy way but her eyes never leaving sight of Mochal Frappe.* "..."
"..Derpy? Wh-what are you looking at me that way?"
"...." *Her ear twitched, while she lifted her head from the covers.*
*She scooted to Mochal Frappe, which some of her hair was across his shoulder, her face really close to Mochal Frappe's face. He blushed hard, not knowing what was going on. Her pupils grew a few inches bigger, her lips seemed to softly open. Mochal Frappe's heart was beating, because she had both her hands over his chest like a cat would over something soft. She closed her eyes and leaned, Mochal Frappe couldn't help but not move. Her lips where an inch away from his, Mochal Frappe not resisting but could not think at the time. She stopped, and opened her eyes half way blushing. Out of nowhere, she said in a friendly tone.*
"Is this how a cow says 'Moo'? Lips forward, eyes closed and goes 'Mmoooo.'" *His eye twitching, he realized that she was trying to act as a cow. He thought she was doing something else.* "... Yyyeeaah. A cow goes 'Moo'. Is that what you wanted to know?" *She nodded, very happy to know she got it right. She looked at his eyes, and gave him a swift lick against the tip of his nose only then to rest her head under his chin. Mochal Frappe was speechless, just unsure how to react to that. She was sound asleep, snuggling against his body which he seemed to wrap his arms around her and look up. He gave a quick sigh and smiled slightly.* "..And I thought Pinkie Pie was random." *His eyes gave in and he too was well rested for the night.*
