My Little Ponies Forever: First FightChapter 1: The Extra Shift "Do you have to work so late, Daddy?" said a young girl's voice. "We really want you to stay here today." "I'm sorry April," I explained, "but I have no choice. My boss needs me to help take the shift badly." It was early in the morning on a clear September day. The sun hasn't arisen from the east yet, but I had to get to the city university in time for school. Usually my two little ponies, Red Hoofsketch and April Bloom, wake up around this time before I leave for school and work. Every day I tell them I'd be back at our apartment, usually between six and six-thirty every weekday evening, and I always have the weekends and holidays off. They're pretty smart for ponies their age and know that I'll always be back, and while I'm away, they’d stay out of trouble. Today, though, I was assigned to take an extra shift because one of my fellow employees was very sick. If I didn't do it,
Daring DoDaring Doand theSEARCH FOR THE FORGOTTEN AMULETSR. HoofsketchChapter 1A Scholar and Two Forgotten Trinkets The sound of a loud whistle wailed and filled the soundless air as the long express train accelerated down the open fields and hills of Equestria. A certain pony decided to take a ride on the Pony Express after the recent events that took place near the border of the Crystal Empire. She wasn’t just on it for a change in pace, but there was somepony on the train she needed to talk to. The train was packed with tourists, however, and made it difficult for the mare to locate her target. “A.B. said he would be on this train,” she mumbled to herself, “but where is he?” When it came to ancient relics and treasure that needed finding, Daring Do was always in a hurry to find out more about them. She had searched high and low for hidden relics thr
My Little Ponies Forever (Chapter 7)Chapter 7Tonight, I've been so lost in thought. The cutie mark event was quite a shock to me, even though I half expected it to happen. I felt so glad that Red and April had finally gotten their own cutie marks. Though that was their big moment of the day, mine was just hours ago.I had just tucked them into their bed after reading a story to them. "Good night, you two," was what I told them.Then, the inevitable happened: they said as they yawned, "Good night, Daddy. We love you." They smiled as they slowly closed their eyes and went to sleep.Once again, I felt like my heart would explode in shock, but seeing them smile as they slept made me feel so happy to know they meant it. So as any good parent would, I kissed them on their foreheads and said, "I love you too, my little ponies." I then slowly made my way to the door, turned off the lights as I looked back at them, and quietly closed the door.For the first time in a long, long time, they said those three words: "I love you."I'
My Little Ponies Forever (Part Three)Chapter 5A few months after I graduated from high school, I decided to attend college to earn a degree in art. I found an apartment in the city that was cheaper than others and in very good condition. Plus, it had a back yard with a fence running around it. It was the perfect home for me and the ponies, at least until I graduate from college.Since I have to go to school and my new job, I started worrying about the ponies, wondering whether they would get spotted by any of my new neighbors. Leaving them by themselves is the most of my worries. If something happens to either me or them... well, let's just say that's something I don't want to think about. I do have the weekends, weeknights, holidays, and summers off from my studies and work, so that gives me a lot of time to play around with them. We would spend most of them playing, laughing, and telling stories to each other. However, I still had to keep up with my studying in school, so at other times, I would have to study a lot whi
My Little Ponies Forever (Part Two)Chapter 3It’s only been three months since the day I first met the two ponies, but things have seemed to have changed a lot for me. I tried to do some 'research' on how to take care of ponies from the show, but I had very little success. I still don’t know how they got here, but right now, I don’t care anymore. During these few months with them, I’ve come to have enjoyed spending so much time with them. They even like doing some of the same stuff I do. They've really opened me up to hope, joy, and true friendship.Right now, they’re sitting next to me on one of the living room couches watching The Land Before Time. They've seemed to enjoy that as much as I ever did. They even like watching Pokémon, which I thought was a surprise.They act like little kids a lot, but they still had their caring, fun-loving, and adventurous personalities, despite the fact of me taking care of them. What I found amazing is that they started learning to talk. I am still
My Little Ponies Forever (Part One)Chapter 1Today, I had gone to school as usual. I did the same things I've done for the last few months: learning, eating lunch, working on homework, and saying "Hello" to all the nice teachers. After school, I just felt very tired and wanted to go home right away. It's almost summer vacation, so I guess that's something to look forward to. Still, who can I spend it with?I stay in my room on most days. When I’m bored, upset, hear my parents fighting, or see my brothers watch something I honestly didn’t care about watching, that’s where I’ll go. I guess that’s partially the reason why I don’t talk to anyone anymore, but that’s also where I have more concentration on my homework or art work for that matter.Today, however, I felt like taking a walk to a creek about half a mile west of my house. I go down there sometimes when I feel like getting away from my problems. My mom said it was okay for me to go alone, so that’s what I did. Today s
My Little Ponies Forever: Bath TimeWhat happens when you forget to bathe your own ponies for weeks?You get two smelly little ponies that really need a long, warm bath. This is my first side-story to the original My Little Ponies Forever...."Come here you two. It's time to play in the water."Two young, cheerful ponies suddenly dashed right up to me from on top of my bed and looked up with bright smiles on their faces. They were waiting to have some fun with me all day, and now they didn't want to waste any minute. I laughed as they trotted by my side into the bathroom.If you guessed it, you're right: I was going to give them a bath; their first ever, in fact.It was on a warm Wednesday evening in June. My parents have already left the house to spend some quality time by themselves. While they were gone, my older brother was left in charge of me and my younger brother. They do this every Wednesday evening, so I figured it was the best time to let the ponies run around outside my room.My older brother doesn't m
