Wings - Chapter 3That afternoon, Spike, Twilight, and Rainbow were standing in the middle of a wide field.“Alright, the first thing you should learn is how to stay airborne,” Rainbow began, “Because nobody can become a great flier if they can’t stay off the ground. Now, show me what you’ve got!”Spike took off and struggled to stay airborne, flapping his wings like crazy. Even the slightest breeze could’ve thrown him off, but luckily, there was no wind at the moment.Even so, he flopped to the ground, exhausted. “Good first try, little dude! I think I know what the problem is: You’re trying too hard, and exhausting yourself in the process!”“I’m just afraid of falling and hurting myself!”“I know the feeling. When I first learned to fly, I didn’t want to hurt myself, so I kept exhausting myself from flapping my wings too hard. But with the help of my teacher, I learned to stop worrying about it and just trust my
Wings - Chapter 2About half an hour of hiding the wings later, Spike went to the Map room, where the Council of Friendship was discussing the day's schedule."...then at 9:45, I'll be presenting my newest dress line, and I'll want all of you to be there!"
