Chapter 7: In Plain Sight
Southern Desert Region
Turning wheels rattled over the straight, metal rails, the Friendship Express rolling through the bone-dry desert. Inside, the school children chattered jovially to each other, the experience of their field trip still giving them a fresh bout of excitement. In one booth, Scootaloo, Sweetie Belle and Apple Bloom all sat together.
“What a great time!” Sweetie Belle chimed. “We finally got to see somewhere cool outside Ponyville!”
“Plus no, Diamond Tiara around to cramp our style.” Scootaloo added, prompting laughter from the other two fillies. Then the trio gave a celebratory triple high hoof.
“An’ best of all, I got a great souvenir!” Apple Bloom beamed, her newly acquired gift from Silver Star perched proudly on her head. That is, until it slipped down, covering her eyes.
