It was in the afternoon and Little Flitter laid asleep in
her cage on a soft small blankets. Raspberry walked in and sat
on the beg disturbing her sleep.
"Little Flitter, wake up," Raspberry exclaimed.
Little Flitter woke up and climbed out of her bed. She walked
over to the bars looking sleepy.
Raspberry reached in her bag and pulled out a chocolate bar.
Little Flitter smiled greatly.
"I know how much you love chocolate bars," Raspberry
told her. She opened the bar and broke it in half then she put
half of the bar through the cage bars.
Little Flitter took the bar and began eating it when she was
done, her hooves and face was covered in chocolate. Raspberry
couldn't help but giggled.
Little Flitter hurried to her water bowl and quickly began
cleaning herself, "why is it always so messy?"
"Good things are messy I guess," Raspberry replied.
When Little Flitter was done she went to the cage bars smiling,
"So what happened today?"
Raspberry finished her bar and laid on her bed sadly, "Terrible
as usual. I tried making friends but everyone thinks I'm after
their big secret. I can thank my big mouth brother for telling
the whole school. I asked my so called friends to stay at my
house for the night or watch movies but they made up some story
and left. I noticed Lunarstar today with her group of friends."
"You should talk to her," Little Flitter suggested.
"No, I don't want to be friends with her," Raspberry
"Why?" Little Flitter asked.
"I just don't."
"Is it because she's got more friends than you do?"
Little Flitter asked.
Raspberry let a tear fall, "All I ever wanted was lots of
"I'm your friend," Little Flitter quickly said.
Raspberry sat up and smiled but then it quickly faded, "Yes
Raspberry suddenly stood up and looked through her bag, then
she took out a jar. Little Flitter was nervous and walked from
the cage door. Raspberry walked to the cage and opened it, then
she reached in and grabbed Little Flitter.
"Wait..what are you going to do with me?" Little Flitter
Raspberry dropped her in the jar and closed the lid, then she
held the jar up, "I'm such a terrible friend. I don't deserve
it." She put the jar in her bag, "I'll let you go but
far from town where no one else can get you."
Little Flitter smiled greatly, "Thank you!"
Raspberry left her room and went downstairs, "I'm going
out!" Then she left the house.
She walked through the community of houses towards the forest.
When she entered the forest she stopped and looked, no one saw
her which was how she wanted it. She continued walking into the
forest going further and further from town till she could no
longer see any buildings.
She stopped and rested on a hill top, over looking a small stream
that ran through the shaded forest. Raspberry reachwed in her
bag and took out the jar.
"I think this is the place," Raspberry muttered. She
unscrewed the lid and let Little Flitter go who flew wildly around
her. Little Flitter was so happy to see trees and the grass,
she had forgotten how much she liked the forest. she flew up
to Raspberry's face and landed on her nose, "Thank you so
much. The forest smells so good."
Raspberry smiled, "You can go home now."
Little Flitter didn't know where home was but she figured she
could find Luna, "Bye and thanks." She flew from the
tree tops and continued flying higher till she saw the town,
"Oh, I'm quite far from town."
She flapped her wings and flew towards town. She was so small
and the forest was so big it seem hours till she reached the
edge of the forest, by then her wings were tired. She flew to
the roof of a house and rested on it while looking around for
"She's got to be around...Wait a minute. She goes to school...but
I don't know where that's at," She sighed sadly wondering
how long will she be roaming around to find Luna?
Once she was rested she continued to fly around the community
of houses looking at every pony. When the sun began to set she
knew she had to find a place to rest for the night and yet keep
herself hidden from other ponies. She flew far till she saw a
familiar park. She instantly knew where she was. She flew to
a fairly large tree ahead and landed in it, resting at the higher
branches. She sat down and yawned, then she laid down watching
the sun quickly setting. She had spent most of her morning waiting
for Raspberry to come home from school and then searching for
Luna. The day had worn her out.
As the night came and the stars shined brightly, Little Flitter
was half asleep when she heard two familiar voices. Little Flitter
opened her eyes and saw Buster and Charades. She quickly stood
up smiling greatly. She left the tree and flew towards them,
then she landed on Charades head and held his hair tightly not
wanting to let go as she cried.
Charades stopped walking once he felt something on his head.
Buster looked at him and smiled, "It's Little Flitter!"
"Little Flitter?" Charades asked, "Where have
"I was caught and put in a cage then I was let out and then
I couldn't find you or Luna or anyone," Little Flitter replied.
"Well I better take you to Luna'rstars house then,"
Charades proposed, "Buster you head back to the apartment.
I'll see you in the morning."
"Ok," Buster continued walking while Charades walked
towards the park.
"Who caught you?" Charades asked.
"Raspberry," Little Flitter replied.
"Her...why am I not surprised?" Charades replied.
Charades began walking through the park as fast as he could.
When he reached Luna's house he noticed Blueberry leaving
Luna's yard in a hurry. Little Flitter noticed Luna in her earth
form at the door and quickly flew towards her but when she reached
the house, Luna had closed the door.
Charades approached the door and knocked. Luna opened it and
was surprised to see Little Flitter and Charades.
Little Flitter smiled greatly and flew to her face, hugging her.
Luna let Charades in and took him to the living room.
"Little Flitter," Rosebud called to her, "I'm
sorry for throwing you out to the trash. I didn't see you."
Little Flitter flew from Luna to Rosebud smiling, "I'm just
glad to be back."
"Charades how did you find her?" Skyview asked.
"Me and Buster were on our way back to the apartment when
She flew towards us."
"Raspberry caught me and put me in a cage. I was set free
and I found my way to the park," Little Flitter explained.
"Her?" Luna exclaimed," Did you tell her about
"No, I told her nothing," Little Flitter replied.
"Good," Skyview replied.
"Was that Blueberry, her brother that was just here?"
Charades asked curiously.
"Yes, it seems that Raspberry is lost," Booster answered.
"Lost?" Little Flitter exclaimed surprisingly, "I
just left her in the forest."
"Then she is lost in the forest," Skyview remarked.
"Can we go look for her?" Little Flitter asked.
"I'll go too," Luna added.
"No Luna, you stay here. Little Flitter, you stay with me,"
Skyview told her.
Little Flitter smiled and flew to his horn to hold on to it.
Skyview suddenly winked out leaving a cloudy mist in the living
When Skyview appeared in the forest Little Flitter looked
around but it was to dark to see.
"I can't see anything," Little Flitter complained.
"Fly to the top of the trees and take me where you last
saw her," Skyview told her.
Little Flitter flew from his horn to the top of the trees while
Skyview turned into a cloud. She hovered in the air and looked
around, she saw the town and the houses she had seen earlier.
She smiled as she remembered where she was. She flapped her wings
and flew over the tree tops with Skyview behind her.
She flew for a long time till she felt she was the same distance
she was this morning. She flew into the trees and hovered above
the ground, Skyview landed and returned to his pony form.
"Is this the place?" Skyview asked.
"Yes...or close to it," little Flitter answered.
Skyview lit his horn, giving light to the area. He stood quietly
listening but all he heard was animals. He continued walking
with Little Flitter next to him as they looked around. The trees
grew close together making it hard to find Raspberry. Everywhere
they looked they saw hills, cliffs, bushes and rocks. Animals
would startle them at time. Little Flitter landed on Skyview's
head when she was glowing yellow eyes watching her every move.
"That's just an owl," Skyview told her.
"And do you know what they eat?" Little Flitter asked.
"Yes, snakes, rats and other small crawling animals."
"I'm small so it wouldn't notice the difference," Little
Flitter pointed out.
Skyview smiled at her comment. After their long walk he suddenly
heard a noise. Skyview stopped and listened quietly. He heard
faint sounds of a pony crying. He followed the sound for sometime
till he saw her in a ditch huddled next to a tree.
Raspberry turned when she noticed the arena lighting up. She
gasped and began to run but she fell over a rock and into a bush.
"Don't be scared of me. I mean you no harm," Skyview
Raspberry stood up and looked at him with fear in her eyes. When
he took a skep towards her, she took a step backwards.
Little Flitter flew from his head to Raspberry, "Raspberry!"
Raspberry looked at her surprisingly and smiled. Without warning
she suddenly grabed Little Flitter and rubbed her cheeks on her,
"I'm so glad you came back."
"W-what are f-friends for?" Little Flitter replied
trying to breath. Raspberry let go of Little Flitter and smiled.
"This is my friend," Little Flitter pointed to Skyview.
"Are you sure?" Raspberry asked without taking her
eyes off of him.
"I promise, I mean no harm. I only want to take you home,"
Skyview told her.
"Are you sure?" Raspberry asked, "Your not here
to get rid of me?"
To her surprised, Skyview laughed, "No, I'm just taking
Raspberry gave a weak smile but she still didn't trust him.
"Sorry about scaring you before. I wasn't...myself when
you first saw me," Skyview explained, "But I must ask
that you tell no one about me."
"Who in the world would beleive me anyways?" Raspberry
asked, "They'll think I'm crazy if I told them a black unicorn
took me home."
Skyview smiled, "lets go." He turned and began walking
with Raspberry trailing behind him. They walked for a long time
in silence till Raspberry said something.
"Where did you come from?" She asked curiously.
"I'm sorry, I can not tell you that," Skyview replied.
"Oh, well how about the ghost of ponyland. Do you know her?"
Skyview remained silent wondering if it would be alright to answer
Raspberry looked at the ground figuring he wasn't going to answer.
"Yes, I do," Skyview replied, "Please don't ask
anything else about her."
Raspberry smiled when she finally got an answer from him. Skyview
looked back at her, "How did you get lost in this forest?"
"I came here to let Little Flitter go but when I went to
go home I forgot how I got here. Everything looked the same after
"I heard Little Flitter call you friend. Is that true?"
Skyview asked curiously.
"Yes, she's the first true friend I ever had."
"First friend?" Skyview asked, "You don't have
any other friends?"
"No," Raspberry reaplied sadly.
"You seem so nice, though."
"To you I do but others thinks I'm mean."
"Well from what I hear I don't blaim them. Just be yourself,
a nice and caring pony and you'll find ponies will want to be
"No they won't. They'll ignore me or say hi and leave. No
one wants to be my friend if they knew the real me. I tried it
before and no one cares."
"Then those ponies wouldn't have made very good friends.
You've been trying to make friends with the wrong ponies. That's
all," Skyview smiled at her, "give it another try sometime."
Well, we won't make it to town on foot at this rate. Now hold
still and don't be scared." He lowed his horn and touched
her. Suddenly they turned into a cloud and flew over the tree
They flew for a short time flying over the trees like a blur.
When they reached the comunity of houses they landed on the sidewalk
returning to their pony form.
"Oh that was awsome!" Raspberry exclaimed, "It
was like flying without wings and I could see everything at once."
Skyview smiled, "so do I."
"Well I guess I better get home. Thanks for your help and
don't worry I won't tell anyone. They'll think it's just another
big lie to get attention."
Little Flitter flew to her and hugged her face, "Bye.
"Thanks for helping me. Goodbye," Raspberry ran down
the street towards home.
"She's a very different pony when she's just herself,"
"She's just afraid to show other what she's really like."
"Yes, I kind of figured that. Maybe there's hope for her
yet," Skyview replied, "Lets get back to the house."
Little Flitter held onto his horn and the two winked out.
