Buster and Charades walked through the park towards town.
The sidewalk began to look crowded. They could see more buildings
ahead of them. As the walked into town, they slowed down and
"It was sure nice of Booster to give us the rest of the
day off," Buster commented.
Charades laughed, "I think he needed it more than we did."
"Well, we are soldiers and that's a life time job,"
Buster pointed out.
"We used to be soldiers, now we're guards for.." but
before Charades could finish Blizzard appeared from a dead end
alley and bumped into them.
Blizzard looked up at them wondering who he bumped into. Buster
and Charades stood looking at him.
"It is best to watch where your walking, this town is crowded,"
Charades told him.
"I--I uh...sorry," Blizzard took stood and watched
as they walked by, then he gasped and noticed their hairy feet.
"They're from the other world," Blizzard thought, "Why
are they here and who are they?" he had never seen them
before. Curious as to who they are he decided to follow them.
He walked from the alley shoving his way through the crowd.
"Lets split up. I'm going to look around for something
to get Prince Starfire," Charades told him.
"Why?" Buster asked.
"He's board and he needs something to do. I'll see you later,"
Charades turned and continued walking.
Buster turned and walked a different direction. Blizzard was
stuck in the center deciding who to follow. He looked at both
of them and had to decided quickly before he lost sight of them.
In the end he decided to follow Buster.
Buster walked past several stores till he noticed a small
pegasus statue in a window. He stopped and looked. Just then
he heard a bell ring, he turned to see where it was coming from
and saw a door with a bell above it. The sign above the store
read 'Antique Shop'
He walked in the store and looked around. He noticed a chess
piece that had a pegasus on it and a few creatures he didn't
"That is a very old chess set," a pony suddenly said.
Buster turned and saw a light blue pony with light pink and mint
hair, "It has fairy tale creatures as the chess pieces."
"It's...interesting," Buster replied. He looked around
and spotted another statue of a pegasus.
"Oh, that's a book end set, the other one is in the window,"
the pony told him, "Are you interested in anything?"
"No, I was just looking," Buster turned and left the
store. Then he continued walking through the crowd. He glanced
at the windows till he came upon a book store. He walked inside
and saw bookcases in four rows and all around the wall. He walked
slowly past the books taking a quick look till he saw a book
on royal ponies. He took the book out and began looking at it.
The castles, soldiers and how things ran fascinated him.
"Very similar back home," Buster whispered to himself.
After he finished the book he sat it back in the bookcase and
left the store.
Blizzard followed him all over town as he kept his distance.
He was carful not to get to close or get to far and yet he knew
following him all over town won't give him answers. How was he
going to find out who they were? He continued to follow Buster
till the sun began to set. Ponies on the side walk slowly began
to leave although there was still enough ponies to give him some
cover. Buster walked around the corner and suddenly stopped almost
bumping into Charades. Blizzard had to get closer to hear, so
he hurried to the shop close to Buster and stood at the door,
hiding himself as he listened.
"I was just heading back to the house," Buster told
him and then he noticed a green bag around his neck, "So
you got something for Prince Starfire?"
"It's a coloring book. It's the only thing I could think
of," Charades replied.
Buster smiled, "I haven't colored in a coloring book since
I was very small."
"Everyone loves to color. I thought this would give him
something to do for awhile or til Prince Skyview shows up,"
"Lets go. I'm starving," Buster exclaimed.
Blizzard followed them around the corner, down the long sidewalk.
The farther they went from town the less ponies Blizzard saw.
"I'm finally going to find the Princess," Blizzard
thought feeling anxious to get back home. He followed them to
the corner when suddenly Raspberry ran into him, knocking him
to the ground. As Charades turned the corner ahead, he noticed
Blizzard with Raspberry laying on him and her bags fallen to
"Come on!" Buster exclaimed.
Charades quickly joined Buster, "Do you remember the pony
that ran into me earlier?"
"What about him?"
"I just saw him. Apparently he didn't take my suggestion.
He ran into another pony," Charades replied.
"Looks like some ponies will have to learn the hard way,"
Blizzard was mad, he shoved Raspberry off of him and quickly
looked ahead but Buster and Charades were gone.
"Watch where your going!" Blizzard yelled.
"Shut up!" Raspberry yelled back, "And look what
you made me do. My bags got wholes in them!" Raspberry picked
up her bags and held them in both arms.
"I'll do more than put wholes in your stupid bags if I see
you again!" Blizzard warned her and then he walked away.
He walked into an alley and disappeared in a cluster of snowflakes.
He flew from town to his shack, landing on the ground and returned
to his pony form.
"That...annoying...Pony!" cried angrily.
Blizzard sat on the ground feeling mad that Raspberry had made
him loose sight of them.
"I came so close to finding her too," Blizzard yelled
angrily. He thought about who the two ponies were and eventually
calmed down, "They knew Starfire and Skyview. Those two
must be important ponies...but...What a minute. Starfire and
the Princess is here, they wouldn't come unguarded. those two
have to be royal guards or something." Blizzard stood up
and walked into the shack, "She's close by. I'll have to
search every night till I find her."
