Aqua followed Pinkie and her brother as they approached Carousel Boutique. “La-la-la. I can’t wait for আপনি to meet rarity! She’s so nice, and makes pretty dresses! Pinkie Pie rambled on to Peak. When they had reached the boutique, Aqua Marine waited outside while Pinkie Pie introduced Peak to Rarity. Surprisingly, he only left three মিনিট later. “Wow, how did আপনি manage to leave so early?” she asked him. “Well, I just simply declined the offer for her to make me something. Simple.” He shrugged. “Next stop, রামধনু Dash!” Pinkie squealed, hopping away. They followed her to a পরাকাষ্ঠা hot air balloon, where Peak hopped in after Pinkie, and Aqua hesitantly climbed in.
They floated up to the মেঘ were রামধনু Dash lived. “Oh রামধনু Dash! There’s another টাট্টু আপনি need to meet! COME OUT AND MEET HIM!!” Pinkie Pie shouted. The rainbow-maned pegasus left her home, and stood out in front of her door. “What is it now, Pinkie?” she ব্যক্ত irritably. “Ooh! Ooh! There’s this টাট্টু আপনি need to meet! He’s Aqua Marine’s brother! He’s only visiting though, so I need to introduce him to everypony in Ponyville!” Pinkie quickly said. Peak started to step out of the balloon to land on the cloud. “No! Only Pegasi can—“ রামধনু Dash started, but stopped and stared confusedly as Peak stepped on the মেঘ without sinking through. “How did আপনি do that? Did Twilight cast the walk on মেঘ spell for you?” she asked him. “Uh, no. I’m actually a pegasus. I was just born without wings. I just have these nubs.” He said, twitching the tiny stumps on his back. “Wow. That’s kinda cool.” রামধনু said, trotting up to him to examine the nubs. “Hey Aqua, why don’t আপনি come here too? I get Pinkie being in the balloon, but not a pegasus with working wings.” She suddenly ব্যক্ত to Aqua Marine. “I… um, I’m scared of heights. I swim, not fly.” He mumbled, sinking down lower in the balloon. রামধনু Dash snorted. “Who’d ever heard of a pegasus that swims? Pegasi are meant to be in the air.” She scoffed. “Anyways, I have some, um, stuff to do. It was nice meeting you.” She said, retreating back into her home. “FLUTTERSHY!” Pinkie Pie suddenly screamed. “C’mon, Peak!” she ব্যক্ত to her brother. Peak trotted up to the balloon and hopped in. “Let’s go!” he said.
They approached the door of Fluttershy’s cottage, where she was outside putting bird feed into a feeder, humming a tune. “Oh, um, hi Pinkie.” She quietly said, noticing them. Peak blinked. “Uh, hello, miss.” He ব্যক্ত shyly. “Um… hi. I’m Fluttershy.” She ব্যক্ত to him. Peak slowly extended his hoof. “I’m Peak. I-I’m Aqua’s brother. Um, hi--erm, hello.” He stammered, starting to blush. Aqua Marine rolled her eyes, and leaned up against a tree. Suddenly, something whizzed past her ear and stuck into the tree. Surprised, she looked at it. It was a knife, with a চেরি with a fuse for the stem engraved on the blade. She looked up where it would’ve come from, narrowing her eyes in suspicion. Who had thrown the knife? Aqua shook her head, feeling paranoid. She turned back to Peak. “Come on, let’s go home.” She said, turning and trotting away.
