"I've been waiting a long time for this," the figure said. It kept repeating over and over again in my head as I dreamed while asleep. What am I going to do when I wake up? I have no place to go, no one to look up to, nothing. I lifted my head to see the moon slowly dissapearing as the sun rose. "I should get going," I thought as I stood up.
I prepared my wings for flight as I walked towards the edge of the cave. With a beat of my wings, I flew into the atmosphere of the sky above the clouds. The sun had not risen to it's fullest yet, so the 상단, 맨 위로 of the clouds were a dark purple color, yet to be gone 의해 the light of the sun. As I flew into the distance of the horizon, I started to notice that it was quite peaceful. I would think that everything would be in havoc because of what just happened, but apperently not. Where I thought would be a good spot to land I folded my wings against my body to gain speed down.
I landed in a clearing in a forest. This forest was dense looking and dark too. Looking around me, I started to see eyes in the dark staring at me. The glare made me uneasy then I started to notice the eyes were walking towards me. "Great, 더 많이 action," I thought. As the eyes revealed themself into the light, I saw a huge manticore, and this one seemed to be an alpha. "Think, quick." I said to myself. I used my magic infront of the maticore. It created a 벽 that seemed to distract it. "An illusion?" I thought. I shook my head and made a run for it away from the manticore. I ran into the forest as it seemed my only choice. I didn't exactly have any idea where I was going, but I had to be going somewhere. I stopped in my tracks to find my self infront of some object. I used some of my magic to light the place up a little, to find the entrance, if it did have one. I eventually found a wooden door. I knocked on it to see if anyone was home. Nothing. I opened the door to find myself in a dark room. I closed the door behind me and I heard foot steps.
"Who's there?" I yelled softly.
"Princess Eclipse?" A voice asked.
The lights turned on and I saw a pegasus at the bottom of the stairs.
"Yep. That's definetly her!" Another voice said. I spun around to find a earthpony close up to me. She studied me 의해 circling me, looking at my cutie mark and my mane. Then she stared deeply into my eyes.
"Um... who escatly are you?" I asked, pushing away the earth pony.
I'm Fluttershy and this is Pinkiepie," The pegasus said.
"Oh, I see." I said, looking between them two. They both seem unsuallsy, calm.
"Where am I? I asked, feelign stupid for asking that question.
"You are in the Everfree Forest, a place where dangerous 동물 come out at 일 and night." Said PinkiePie.
"How are 당신 guys so, calm? Aren't 당신 worried about the creatures that might attack your house?"
"Oh no, AppleJack is fighting them off so they don't coem attack us," Said fluttershy.
"AppleJack?" Who's her?"
"She's the protector of the grounds. Keeps 동물 from getting in, and getting out." Said PinkiePie as she sat down on a couch. Suddenly, the door was kicked open, and, I'm guessing AppleJack, pulled in a creature inside the house, then closed the door.
"This one tried to escape, but I didn't let 'em." AppleJack said as she tossed the creature infront of everyone.
"AHH! GET THAT THING OUT OF MY HOUSE!" Fluttershy screeched as she backed up away.
"Relax Fluttershy! Dis creature here won be goin anywhere." 사과, 애플 jack said said as she pulled the rope tighter.
"Wait! 당신 are hurting it!" I exclaimed as I advanced near the creature.
"And who in the 건초 do 당신 think 당신 are?" AppleJack said as she looked at me, then she realized who I was. "OH my, I'm so sorry, I didn't-!"
"It's okay, AppleJack," I said as I lowered my head near the creature. "There there, everything gonna be alright okay?" I used my magic to calm it down a little. I started to sing a lullaby. I don't know how 또는 why I was 노래 it but, I felt that I should. The volume was pretty loud I guess. All the noises from the forest 당신 could hear was completely quiet. The creature started to deform. Soon it was nothing but an egg. I finished my lullaby and all was quiet. I summoned an egg holder with my magic and placed it on a shelf. Then I levitated the egg on to the holder. The other ponies stood there, amazed 의해 the work I had just done. I looked out the window to see that clearing and I saw the maticore lying down, peacefully.
"Princess, I need to show yeh somethin," AppleJack said as she opened the door. "Maybe I can help what yeh need with?" I followed her throughout the door. We started to walk out. I guess she was taking me out of the everfree forest.
"Sweet pea, do ya remember anything?" She asked.
"Nope, not a single thing, except for my name is Princess Eclipse." I said
"Ye got that one right..." Her voice trailed off.
There was silence for a moment until I finally had the urge to ask a 질문 that I knew would ahve a long answer.
"What happened to Equestria?"
AppleJack sighed. "I guess 당신 really don't remember do ya? It all started in the BadLands, where the King had took everything. We were fighting all kinds of creatures. There were thousands of us but millions of them. We 로스트 everything. Everyone, dead on that battlefield. I couldn't belive my eyes. Blood, everywhere. The only ones that I know survived was me, Fluttershy, and PinkiePie. I saw no one else. We had no idea where Twilight, Rarity, 또는 RainbowDash went. We thought they were dead, 또는 imprisoned."
"How did 당신 end up in the forest?"
"No town was 안전한, 안전 anymore, it was either heavily guarded 또는 wiped of the face of equestria, so we found a big 나무, 트리 in the forest and carved our 집 in there, and one 의해 one transferred some stuff from Fluttershy's cottage."
"If the others were still alive, could 당신 guess where they might be?"
"Well, for starters, I would think TwilightSparkle would be somewhere in the 겨울왕국 North, RainbowDash somewhere in the skies down south, and Rarity, I would guess either somehow with the 용 또는 the griffins out south east."
"AppleJack... do 당신 know what happened to your family?" She paused, looking at the ground. I noticed a tear rolled down her cheek.
"Dead, suffered from torture from the King."
I let out a small gasp. How cruel! What type of place is this?
"Well it looks like were out." Said AppleJack.
"Thanks, couldn't done it without you." I said.
"Pleasure, and Princess, if 당신 do happened to see the others, let them know I said hi, and we are all 안전한, 안전 in the forest."
"Wouldn't forget it." I said, and winked at her. She turned around and ran back in the forest. I unfolded my wings and flew into the sky down south.
After reaching south so that I saw the badlands, I flew into the clouds, and I saw pegasi and griffins fighting eachother. I looked around, and there I saw her, RainbowDash.
