Tainted Memories pt 5What a morning… Is it normal to have woken up feeling like you spent the entire night pacing back and forth for hours? I practically rolled out of bed and hit the wooden floor of my room with a thud.“Are you feeling OK, Twilight?” Those were the first words I heard. I looked down over the floor’s edge and saw Spike looking up at me with a concerned expression. He was carrying a tray lined with pancakes and a glass of milk. It seemed he also remembered to include a cup of maple syrup.“Ugh… Kind of…” I grumbled while slowly getting myself up onto my feet. I slowly made my way down the stairs to the rest of my living room. I felt so weak. As if my legs could give out from under me at any time.“Did you have a nightmare?” Spike asked while he set the tray on the closest table.I sighed as I tried to recall what I had dreamed about. “I… I don’t know… All I remember is…a strong sense of sorrow.
Tainted Memories pt 4Well, today got off to a slow start for me. I just felt so lazy getting out of bed. So heavy… Almost as if I had gorged myself on ten dozen chocolate-covered roses. Thank the stars I know better than to do that. A lady must mind her figure!I crawled out of bed and carefully removed the curlers from my gorgeous mane and tail. What, you think my perfectly kempt hair is all natural? As much as I wish it was, I am sorry to say some curls require a little help to maintain their shape. But enough about that. I made certain to touchup my eye shadow with my favorite baby blue hue. You would be surprised by how many stallions are drawn to eyes topped off with a light blue cover. I struck a delightful pose in the mirror, raising my right hoof slightly while batting my eyes, even though they still seemed as if I had gotten hardly any sleep.. “Mmm, yes. Perfect as always… Hm?”My right hoof? What was that on it? Ah, yes. My bracelet. I have been wearing that for as long
Tainted Memories pt 3Well, today has gotten really weird. I find Applejack and Fluttershy just spazzing out on the ground in front of Pinkie Pie and then I find out my good buddy James is still missing without a trace! We even went right over to Fluttershy’s house and turned the place upside-down to find any proof of what happened. But we all turned up empty-hooved. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t worried by now. All I could do was try to focus on my weather patrol duties to keep my mind off the bad. Fluttershy had asked to tag along with me, probably for the same reason. I guess being with friends helps keep you distracted from bad thoughts.“So… You know what it’s like doing weather patrol work, Fluttershy?” I asked while looking over my shoulder at Fluttershy. For whatever reason, she didn’t seem to notice me. She was just flapping along with her head tilted down. Her eyes seemed kind of…well…empty. Almost like she was asleep but awak
Tainted Memories pt 2Hello again. This is Fluttershy writing. Um… I know I already wrote a journal today, but I think I should add to it. If that’s OK, I mean… You don’t have to read if you don’t want to.I stayed around in Sugarcube Corner for a while after I finished breakfast. I just wanted somepony to be with at the time. I felt so lonely with worry without seeing my boyfriend this morning, so I had to beat it back any way I could. And Pinkie Pie was more than happy to keep me happy.“So, my dog had spilled cherry all over himself. I mean, really! Cherry juice! Do you have any idea how bad that stuff stains?!” Pinkie Pie shouted from a makeshift stage she had set up in her loft above the storefront. She insisted on doing some standup for me. And it was working pretty well.“What did you do to get the stains out?” I asked, wondering where this joke was going.Pinkie Pie gave a big grin while she spoke her reply. “Oh, that’s easy! I just
Tainted Memories pt 1Um… Hello. This is Fluttershy again. I think you might have read a journal I wrote earlier, but it’s OK if you never did. I mean, I’m not much of a writer, so I don’t think it was very interesting… But anyway… I feel like I should write this. Something bad happened today.I woke in bed, feeling all rested. I looked to my side to see if my boyfriend was awake. He’s almost never up before I am. But today, he was. His side of the sheets had nothing under them. But the strangest thing is that even tho9ugh they were all wrinkled from use, they had not been pulled down. Almost as if he might have used a teleportation spell to get out of bed. But James doesn’t know how to use magic… Right?Oh, I guess I should explain. James is my boyfriend. He’s a human, even though I never even knew what a human is. I have known him for exactly three weeks so far. And…well, we’re lovers now. He’s been very sweet to me and I l
