A few days later, late in the evening, the girls went to their
club house and began yelling angrily at each other. Clover was
no longer purple and pink, she was now all green. Sweetheart
and Starlight had blue spots on her fur.
"Hold it!" Starlight shouted.
The girls suddenly became quiet.
"Candy has done some awful things to us and it's about time
we pay her back but sitting here and yelling isn't going to help,"
Starlight told them.
"Did you know what she did yesterday?" Patch asked
angrily, "I was playing soccer with the boys in the park..."
The girls sat and listened as Patch told her story.
Patch brought her ball to the park over the hill where Ace,
Teddy, Blueberry and Lancer waited.
"Sign up is almost here. We need to practice if we're going
to be the best!" Ace exclaimed.
Patch took out her soccer ball and gave it to Lancer who was
to be goalie. They went to the field and started playing. Lancer
kicked the ball and they all started chasing it. Patch kicked
the ball to Blueberry who did his best to keep it from Ace, but
he didn't see Teddy until it was too late.
"Got it!" Teddy yelled. He kicked it to Ace who quickly
kicked it past Lancer.
"Yeah! that's one for us," Ace cried happily.
Lancer took the ball and kicked it. Blueberry caught the ball
and kicked around Teddy while trying to avoid Ace.
"Over here!" Patch yelled.
Blueberry kicked the ball only he kicked too hard and sent the
ball down the hill into the bushes.
"I'll get it!" Patch yelled.
She hurried down the hill and stared searching through the bushes.
"Patch, here's your ball," Candy said coming out from
behind the bushes.
"Thank you, Candy." Patch took the ball but noticed
she was trying hard not to laugh.
"Got it!" Patch yelled.
She stood from the bushes and kicked it. The ball popped and
vanilla cream splattered all over her. Just then she heard a
laugh, he turned to see Candy laughing and running.
"Candy!" Patch yelled angrily.
The girls sat and listened till Patch was done with her story.
"Well that was nothing. Try having your ears busted!"
Melody exclaimed. "I had to have band practice at home before
our concert that's coming up soon."
The girls listened as Melody told her story.
Melody was in the living room when she heard a knock at the
door. She stood up and left the living room. She walked to the
door and opened it.
"Melody, we're ready," the green pony said.
"Great," Melody turned. "Mom I'm going in the
garage to practice."
Melody shut the door and walked to her garage in back. She picked
up her Mic. The girls took their guitars and studio keyboard
and began playing but there was no sound coming from the speakers.
Melody went to the speakers and turned it up. "Ok try it
They played but still there was no sound. Melody turned it up.
"Ok, try it again."
Again they played but still no sound. Melody turned it up high.
"Ok, this has to work. It's set high."
"I don't know, Melody. Your speakers probably blew,"
one of her friends said.
"Lets try it one more time," Melody proposed.
They started playing and suddenly the sounds coming from the
speakers were so loud that the girls fell to the ground holding
their ears tightly. When the sounds was gone, they started asking
each other if they were ok but neither one of them could hear.
Candy walked out from behind the speakers and laughed. Melody
and the girls noticed he was wearing ear plugs. Candy ran out
of the garage laughing.
The girls around the table gasped.
"Oh, Melody, that was awful!" Sweetheart muttered.
"How's your hearing?" Patch asked.
"It's better than it was yesterday, at least I can hear.
The doctor said we won't have our full hearing back for a few
"I can't believe how mean she is. Does she really think
it's funny what she did to us?" Starlight asked.
"Oh I can promise you she does," Clover exclaimed angrily,
"Thanks to her I'll be green for a week."
"What happened?" Bright Eyes asked.
"It started when Mom went to the store and got some shampoo
since I was out."
The girls listened and stared at her who was now green.
"Mom, did you get it?" Clover asked.
"Yes I did," their mother answered as she entered the
living room. "It's in the kitchen on the counter."
Clover walked to the kitchen and saw a white bottle of shampoo
on the counter by the open window. Clover picked it up and walked
out of the kitchen to the stairs in the hall. She went upstairs,
"I'm going to take a bath."
Clover went to the bathroom and filled the tub with warm water.
Bubbles in all sizes fizzed from the water and stuck to the rim
of the tub. Clover set the bottle of shampoo on the tub rim and
soaked her coat. Once she was soaked, she stood up, took the
shampoo and poured in on the sponge. Then she began rubbing all
over. When she was done she laid in the water soaking herself,
then she stood up, left the tub. She rung out her hair and rubbed
the towel on her coat not realizing her coat was slowly changing
colors. When she was dry, she left the bathroom and went to the
kitchen. He mother turned and saw her, she stood and gasped,
then screamed. Clover was scared and didn't know what was going
on. Her father rushed in from the garage and gasped at her.
"What?" Clover asked who was at the point of crying.
"Your...green" her father answered.
"What?" Clover asked.
"Let me get a mirror," her mother said.
"I'll get a towel and see if I can scrub it off," her
father ran up stairs.
Just then Clover heard laugher. She went to the counter and poked
her head outside.
Candy was leaning on the fence laughing as hard as she could.
"Hey Clover!" Candy yelled, "Did you know Clovers
are green and not purple and pink?" Candy quickly left still
"Clover, your father couldn't get it off?" Bon Bon
"No, it's dye and won't come off for a while," Clover
"You should have seen what she did to my cake!" Bon
Bon cried angrily.
Bon Bon had just finished her dirt cake and set it on the
counter by the window when her mother called to her.
"Bon Bon, would you get your little brother? I'm a bit too
busy and our sisters aren't here to help."
"Sure, Mom," Bon Bon left the kitchen and went up stairs.
She walked into her little brother's room and picked him up from
his crib. Then she went downstairs and into the living room.
"Here he is, mom."
Her mother looked up from cleaning under the table and took the
baby boy from her, "Thank you Bon Bon."
Bon Bon went to the kitchen, she was anxious to eat her cake.
She took out a plate and scooped some cake out of the bowl. Then
she took a spoon and started eating it. Suddenly she ran to the
trash and spit it out. Then she took out a glass, filled it with
water and rinsed her mouth.
Just then she heard laughing. Bon Bon went to the window and
saw Candy by an apple tree laughing. Next to her saw her cake.
"Bon Bon, how did you like my dirt cake?" Candy asked
still laughing. She turned and ran. Bon Bon looked in the bowl
and saw it was filled with cream and real dirt.
"Gross!" the girls exclaimed.
"How awful," Luna remarked.
"Dirt tasted awful. Candy had taken my cake and threw it
out then filled it with dirt. I'm still mad about it."
"Ooo...That..that...rotten stinker!" Sweetheart cried.
"Speaking of stinkers, what she did to me was stinky!"
"Lunarstar!" Rosebud called from the kitchen.
Luna hurried downstairs in her winged unicorn form and into the
"Luna could you run to the store and get me some seeds?"
"Sure, mom," Luna replied. She took a piece of paper
from her and left the kitchen. as she walked through the living
room, her horn started to glow, her hair turned purple, then
her horn and wings disappeared.
She hurried outside and ran to town. She went into the store,
bought a bag of flower seeds then she left carrying a yellow
bag. As she walked by a fenced alley, garbage suddenly fell on
her. Luna was covered in banana peals, half eaten food and other
unrecognizable things. She shook it off of her before anyone
saw the garbage floating in the air on her wings but she was
still dirty. Luna heard laughing. She peeked over the fence and
saw Raspberry running but Candy stood there laughing. "Oh,
Lunarstar. You stink, did you even take a bath?" Candy turned
and ran still laughing.
Luna was mad, but when she noticed everyone staring at her, she
ran and began to cry.
When she got home her mother came out of the kitchen and gasped.
Luna hurried up to the bathroom with her mother as she told her
"Oh, what an awful thing to do!" Melody cried.
"Mom was pretty mad about it. I did get her seeds home but
"You should have seen what she did to me, it was just as
gross!" Bright Eyes exclaimed.
Bright Eyes went to the park carrying her bag full of books.
"I can't wait to get home and read these books I got from
the library. Maybe it won't hurt to sit and read for a bit."
Bright Eyes went to the lake and sat under a tree. She emptied
her bag and set her three books next to her, then she took a
book and began reading. Half the day went by till she reached
the end of the book. Bright Eyes set the book down and went to
pick another one up and she screamed and jumped to her feet.
On her two books were nasty, slimy worms with a note. Bright
Eyes picked up the note and read it 'Book Worm'
Just then she heard laughing. She turned and saw Candy in the
"Candy!" Bright Eyes yelled angrily.
Candy turned and ran.
"Ewww, that is gross!" Clover exclaimed.
"That must have been shortly after she left the ice cream
shop," Starlight replied.
"I'm so mad about it. Thanks to her I got blue spots all
over me," Sweetheart exclaimed.
"Me and Sweetheart got the worst of it," Starlight
said as she started to tell her story.
Sweetheart walked across the street and was about to go inside
the ice cream shop when Candy and Raspberry walked out of the
Sweetheart wondered what was so funny. She walked in and saw
Starlight running from table to table handing out their drinks
and ice cream but that didn't seem to funny to Sweetheart.
Sweetheart went to the counter and sat down. Starlight hurried
behind the counter and took Sweetheart's order.
"Just a strawberry sprinkled blueberry shake," Sweetheart
"Coming right up," Starlight turned and went to get
a cup, filled it with strawberry and blueberry ice cream, then
she went to the shake machine. A few waitresses did the same
and turned on the shake machine. Suddenly the shake and ice cream
splattered all over. The ponies in the store screamed and ran.
Sweetheart and the waiters were covered in ice cream and whipped
cream. Starlight tried to turn it off but it would turn off.
One of the girls ducked under the counter and unplugged all the
Starlights mother walked in after hearing the screams. She stood
and gasped at the sight of them.
"Mom something went wrong with the shake machines!"
"I can see that. Well clean this up and then you girls she
clean yourselves up. I'll get a towel for you," Starlight's
mother turned and left heading in the back kitchen.
Just then Starlight and the girls heard laughter. They looked
at the door and saw Candy laughing.
"You should see yourselves!" Candy laughed. Then she
ran out of their sight.
"She needs a lesson or something!" Melody cried.
"I agree but what?" Starlight asked.
As the girls talked, Candy and Raspberry quietly walked up to
the club house and listened. Candy did her best not to laugh
Luna was just as mad as they were and was so caught up in what
they were talking about that she almost forgot the time. She
looked at the curtains on the window and saw it was getting dark.
"I have to go," Luna told them suddenly.
"But we have to plan," Melody replied.
"It's getting late and I have to go," Luna changed
back into an earth pony and stood at the door, "Bye, talk
to you tomorrow."
Luna opened the door and left.
Once Luna was far from the club house, Candy and Raspberry left
and stood on the sidewalk.
"I'm not completely finished with them yet," Candy
"I think you went too far," Raspberry told her.
"Come on, Raspberry. This is fun. Showing off is not what
I call fun," Candy replied.
"I rather show off than do what you do," Raspberry
turned and left.
"Wait a minute. Let's repaint their club house tonight?"
"Tonight? You mean at night?" Raspberry asked as she
thought about the ghost and the black unicorn. "No, forget
it. I don't go out at night anymore."
"Why? Are you chicken?" Candy teased her.
"You wouldn't believe me if I told you. No one believes
me," Raspberry turned from Candy and left. Candy was mad
and slowly trailed behind her.
"Tell me anyway."
Raspberry stopped and looked at her. "There's a ghost that
comes out at night."
"A ghost?" Candy laughed.
"Go ahead and go out at night but remember, I warned you,"
Raspberry turned and continued for home with Candy still laughing.
Later that night it was after midnight and everyone in Ponyland
was sound asleep except for Luna. Since it was a weekend her
parents allowed her to roam around outside. Luna was running
through the forest close to the forest edge when she saw something
moving on the street. All she saw was a flashlight and something
dragging behind it. Luna winked close to it and hid on the side
of a house.
"Candy?" Luna thought. "What is she up to?"
Candy was walking on the sidewalk with a flashlight and a pink
wagon with a few paint cans. Luna followed her down the street
while she was careful someone didn't see her. She crossed the
street and followed her to a large house on the corner. Luna
recognized the large house. It had bushes and trees all around
"The club house?" Luna thought worriedly. "She
can't...possibly going to repaint our club house!"
Luna followed her through the bushes and hid behind a tree as
Candy walked up to the side of the club house and parked the
wagon next to her. Then she opened the paint cans and took a
brush from the wagon.
"The looks on their faces tomorrow will be priceless,"
Candy giggled to herself.
"Oh, well see about that," Luna thought.
As Candy began to paint the club house bright yellow, Luna's
horn began to glow. She concentrated on the wagon making it move.
Candy turn and stopped the wagon thinking it was on a slight
hill. She set the yellow brush on the can and picked up another
brush and began painting the side bright orange. Luna concentrated
on the wagon and moved it. Candy turned and chased it. When the
wagon turned Candy began to start worrying. Was her cousin right?
By the time she caught the wagon drops of paint had spilled on
"This is just great. I'll have to wash the wagon or get
rid of it," Candy muttered.
She picked up the paint cans and set them next to the club house.
"You can't scare me ghost!" Candy yelled, feeling rather
stupid talking to something that wasn't real. Then she turned
and continued to paint.
Luna stood feeling mad.
I should have known that wouldn't scare her. I'll have to do
something drastic," Luna thought.
Luna's horn started to glow as she concentrated on the yellow
brush that sat on the can.
"Lets give her a new look," Luna thought smiling.
The yellow brush floated and then it started painting a yellow
line down her back. Candy jumped and swirled around. When she
saw the brush, she gasped and dropped the orange brush. Luna
used her horn and lifted he other brush. Candy stood with her
back against the wet wall forgetting she had just painted it.
The two brush flew at her and started painting her two different
colors. Candy tried to hit the brushes but it did no good so
she grabbed them and held them tightly. Luna had no choice but
to let them go since Candy wasn't about to let go.
Candy laughed, "I told you ghost you can't scare me."
Luna was angry, "Oh we'll see about that."
Candy turned and began painting again, "I'll have to take
a good bath when I get back."
Raspberry's mother had gotten out of bed to get a drink of
water. on her way back to get she decided to check on the little
ponies. She peeked in Blueberry's room and saw that he was sound
asleep. She smiled and closed the door, then she opened Raspberry's
door and saw that she too was sound asleep but Candy's sleeping
bag was empty. Her mother hurried in the room and woke up Raspberry.
"Mom?" Raspberry asked sleepily.
"Where is Candy?"
Raspberry look on the floor next to her bed and saw Candy wasn't
there. Suddenly she remembered what Candy had said.
"I think she went to a club house."
"Club house?" her mother asked.
"There's a group of girls at school who has a club house.
Candy wanted to go out at night and repaint it. I told her not
"Raspberry, you should have told me this sooner. What else
has she done?"
Raspberry sighed sadly knowing she too was going to get in trouble.
"Lots of things."
"Well...she...let a mouse loose at the ice cream shop and
dumped garbage on a pony and..."
"I see, she's out having fun again. She will not get away
with it this time and Raspberry, don't think I've forgotten about
you. I will inform my sister in the morning. This has to stop.
Get out of bed. You, me, and your father are going to get Candy
Candy continued painting till she heard the bushes rustling.
Candy turned and looked but saw nothing. "The wind, I guess."
Then she continued painting. Then she heard it again, she turned
and stared at the bushes, "Who is there?"
A minute later, a tiger slowly crawled out from behind the bushes,
growling and baring it's long fangs. Candy gasped. She froze
unable to move. Was she just seeing things? Was there a real
tiger if front of her?
"Oh wait a minute, you can't be real. There's no tigers
around here, nor a zoo or circus," Candy realized. "You're
not real." She walked up to the tiger and was about to touch
it when the tiger roared. Candy jumped back. "But you sound
Candy turned and ran around the club house. When she realized
the tiger wasn't following her. She stopped and looked around.
"It...must have been a ghost," Candy muttered. She
was breathing heavily.
She walked around the other side and saw her paint cans were
untouched. She was about to grab her brush when she saw lion.
It stood as tall as her looking as her as if it was hungry. Candy
turned and started to run when the lion grabbed her tail in it's
mouth. Candy began to cry from fear, She believe the ghost was
"You're not real...you're not real," Candy kept repeating
hoping the ghost would go away.
The lion let go and Candy fell flat on her stomach. He turned
and gasped frighteningly at a white winged unicorn who stood
where the lion was. She stared at Candy angrily.
"Y-y-your..r-r-real," Candy shuddered.
Luna turned, picked up the bright yellow paint can and threw
it on Candy soaking her in paint. Candy gasped from the wet paint.
She rubbed the paint from her face and then stood up but when
she looked the ghost was gone and so was the orange paint can.
Candy looked around but didn't see her. Suddenly a bright orange
paint was thrown on her from behind. Candy stood on her hind
legs and looked at her back. She was dripping with paint from
front to back. She looked up and saw the ghost laughing hard
and suddenly she was gone.
Candy stood frozen with fear. The ghost had disappeared before
her eyes. How was that possible?
"S-she was right," Candy mumbled as she remembered
Raspberry and her parents walked through the bushes and saw
the mess on the side of the club house. Then they saw Candy in
front of the club house only she was covered in paint.
"Candy!" yelled Raspberry's father angrily.
Candy turned and stood. She knew she was in trouble.
"What happened to you?" Raspberry's father asked gasping
at the paint all over her.
"The ghost, she was real...really real!" Candy exclaimed
shockingly. "She did this to me and animals chased me and..."
"Stop it. You're not lying your way out of this!" the
mother yelled. "I'm calling your mother in the morning.
I promise, you will pay for all the things you've done."
Luna hid on the side of the large house watching and laughing
The next day, Starlight and the girls were on their way to
the club house when they saw Raspberry and her parents on the
sidewalk washing the club house. The girls was confused at first
till they saw Candy repainting the club house with a policeman
watching her closely.
The female pony walked up to the girls. "Is that your club
"Yes it is but what is Candy doing to it?" Starlight
"I'm afraid Candy had repainted your clubhouse yellow and
orange. She is now repainting over it with the original club
house color," she answered. "I'm sorry, I'm Raspberry's
mother and I think Raspberry has something to say to you girls."
Raspberry walked up to them sadly., "I'm sorry for what
The father walked up next to her. "Candy's parents are always
on business trips and can't watch her so they always have someone
"Unfortunately, no one told her parents what she's been
doing," the mother explained.
"Candy's parents are coming to get her today and she will
be traveling with them for now on and she will be watched closely,"
Raspberry's father added.
Luna rushed down the street and saw her friends on the sidewalk,
she was hoping to tell her friends before they got to the club
house but it was to late.
"Luna, did you see what happened?" Clover asked pointing
to the club house. Luna looked and smiled.
Just then Blueberry walked from around the corner with two adult
ponies behind him. One was pink with orange hair, the other was
white with yellow and pink hair. The girls could see Blueberry
was carrying a medium sized box in his mouth. They walked up
to the girls and stopped.
"We are Candy's parents. We were told what had happened
and we are very sorry. I heard she also did some things to you,"
the mother quickly said.
"She dyed me green because my name is Clover."
"Oh my, I'm so sorry," the mother replied.
"As soon as Candy is done we are talking her with us and
I promise you, if she ever comes back to visit, she will be a
different pony," Candy's father assured them. The father
took the box from Blueberry, "We bought this for you girls
before we came here. It's for the trouble Candy has caused you.
Starlight took the box. "Thank you so much."
Melody opened the box and inside was a white, silver and gold
tea set with little ponies and roses all over it.
"Oh, it's so pretty!" Patch exclaimed.
"I was hoping you girls liked it and could possibly use
it," Candy's mother replied.
"We will, thank you," Starlight replied.
They stood for the rest of the day on the grass watching Candy
painting the club house and having their tea. Luna whispered
to them what had happened.
Candy looked and saw them laughing.
"Never mind them, Candy. Just finish painting," her
father told her.
Candy turned and continued painting.
