Sorrel's First Day

Sorrel rose early, early enough to be out the door with time to spare. Truthfully, sleeping was difficult the night before. Though he would be shy to admit it, he was rather nervous and excited for his first day of school. With a piece of toast in hand, buttered and jammed, he began the short walk to school, escorted by his mother and sister. He adjusted the straps of his large backpack as he took steady strides forward. "No fair!" His sister suddenly extorted, tail whipping in agitation, "I want to go to school and meet all the new people too!"

:iconprincesscelestiaplz::iconsaysplz:A very good day to you, human. I come to you on your day of birth with greetings... and thanks.
:iconcelestia-plz::iconsaysplz:My good subject Pinkie Pie told me she had taken to congratulating some humans on their birthdays, but even she has her limits. So she asked us for a bit of assistance... and for such friends of ponykind, we feel it right to provide it.
:iconhappycelestiaplz::iconsaysplz:It is thanks to people like you that our land of Equestria, our very world, exists like it does. It is your friendship with us that gave us life. For that, we will forever be grateful and cherish you.
:iconcelestiapleasedplz::iconsaysplz:And so, allow me to wish you happiness, peace, prosperity and fulfillment! My hope goes with you that you suffer no hardship in the year ahead, but should a challenge befall you, I am certain your courage and skill will see you rise to conquer it!
:iconcelestiaorlyplz::iconsaysplz:Now... where is she...
:iconlunawaveplz::iconsaysplz:Here, sister!
:iconcelestiahappyplz::iconsaysplz:Fashionably late, I see! But just in time for the greetings to be given.
