EXEPT FOR STEVEN
Hello Reader! And welcome to my first fanfic of all so let's get started!
(I am a die hard brony...)
ATTENTION! MAJOR STORY CHANGE
THE MANE 6 ARE LOOKING FOR THE ELEMENT OF LOYALTY, WE DON'T RUN INTO RAINBOW TILL LATER ON IN THE STORY (CHAPTER 2 TO BE EXACT) AND SHE IS ALSO 14 JUST SO YOU KNOW! :D!
Chapter 1: My Little Parkour Accident
My life was miserable, having fallen WAY behind in school and in danger of losing all electronics for all summer, I decide to resort to something a little bit out of the ordinary; while playing Team Fortress 2 for the last time I knew I noticed some 'sprays' of cartoon ponies almost on every server I went to. One spray had a cyan pegasus and a rainbow colored mane in scout's apparel (I.E. Hat /w headset, backpack, a aluminum bat, and a kick-butt face) with the name: Rainbow Dash in fitting letters. Googling up the name I found a children's T.V. show called 'My Little Pony; Friendship is Magic'. Curious I watched a couple of episodes and I was hooked, seeing hyper-energetic ponies fly past the screen in a nearly disorderly fashion was comforting for me, for many odd reasons which I won't put in here.
"Hey! It's Steven Foils!"
"Shut up" I simply said. My last name Floycles was made fun of VERY often.
"Whacha gonna do bout it? Cry to your Little Pony friends?" This made me stop, take a deep breath and bolt down the hallway at speeds I never thought possible, how did that jerk Billy know that I was watching the show? My only strength in school was Phy. Ed. And that was 6th hour, I sighed. It was only 3rd hour
"Half way through" I muttered to myself. I love running. It gave me a sense of freedom, like I was limitless, a sense of going where I wanted to go, whenever I want. I was the school's fastest sprinter and longest endurance runner, so I was heaved with expectations by the Phy. Ed. Teacher; Mr. Browning like Parkour; a 'dance' of movements to quickly bypass obstacles and gaps to take your skills to the next level all while losing little or no speed at all, and I have to admit it was fun and I aced the test with flying colors.
Today was the national championship of Parkour education and I was selected to represent Rockford Middle School: Center for Environmental Studies and Minnesota itself. I scanned the course studying every turn, jump, wall, and obstacle. Everything had to be accounted for. And soon it was my turn to tame the course. Ducking, Weaving, Wall running and jumping, I flew with passion for this new sport and something went wrong at the last turn.
"Whoa, this is pretty high up and they want me to go higher?" I looked up and saw another platform 20 feet higher than the current platform I was on, 30 feet of the ground. Then I looked down and saw a measly little spring board calibrated to send a person of 185 to 250 pounds up 25 feet into the air. I knew the spring board was replaced. It used to look futuristic (Think about the Ariel Faith Plates on Portal).
"Well here goes!" I wasn't sure if the spring board would react to my weight or not, I weighed 125 pounds, not enough to send me 25 feet into the air but more like 10. I sprinted down the platform and jumped onto the board which propelled me...50 feet into the air then straight down, the officials haven't placed a water bed below me because the other spring board was very accurate with sending people up and out, not up and down. I was now screaming for my life as I plummeted down 80 feet of air, seeing green grass flying towards me at 55 miles a hour. I heard a sickening crack some gasps and everything went black.
Everything felt comfortable. And I figured I was laying on a bed. I opened my eyes and saw a bright light blinding my sensitive sense of sight. I figured that that must be the sun.. But I felt like I took a pretty hard hit and tried to remember how I got here...nothing. I figured I might have to get up so when I started to move I heard a voice
"I wouldn't do that if I were you" it sounded very familiar..
"Pssh, fine, how did I get here then?" I asked.
"Well I don't know exactly. I thought I saw a shooting star during the day, but I guess it was you who fell. What happened? Teleportation spell gone wrong?" I opened my eyes to come face to face with a purple pony who was staring at me
"Well what injuries did I get?" I asked wondering if I will ever be able to get up again.
"you currently have several broken ribs, 3 of 4 legs broken and your horn is damaged quite a bit
"Huh.." I said. "I don't remember how I got here or what is going on but all I can pull out is my name and that's Steven."
"Well don't scare me like that okay, Steven?"
"FLASHBACK IN NEWCOMER'S POINT OF VIEW"
I was reading a book on healing magic for a exam coming up a couple days ahead to show that I've been keeping up with my studying to Princess Celestia when all of a sudden I saw a little speck of fire coming down, on closer examination it was a unicorn and it was headed straight for the library.
"OH MY GOSH, SPIKE! TAKE COVER!" I yelled to my assistant dragon who was sorting books out. On this warning the Spike immediately took cover under a table as the falling unicorn crashed through the window and slam against the floor in front of my hiding spot which was also a table.
I now began to recognize some features that weren't still scorched up; a colt of around 14 years of age with a light blue coat almost like Rainbow Dash and a grey mane, his horn was severely damaged as the top quarter was missing and it wasn't really a surprise when I didn't see a cutie mark on his flank, the Cutie Mark Crusaders were around his age
"END OF FLASHBACK"
"I won't try to at least" I said as she revealed her story. Then a knock on the door sounded and this Purple pony who looked also very familiar ran or trotted to get the door.
"Ah you all right Twilight?"
"Yea, I'm fine thanks though"
"So, what exactly happened"
"I'll tell you later, but follow me, I have somepony to show you" Twilight came back into the room with a friend, that friend had a yellowish-orangeish coat with a creme mane with a hat on her head
"Oh my gosh! What happened to you?" she gaped in awe
"He doesn't know either Applejack" Twilight said
"I'm darn sure that Rarity is going to give you a big smooch" Applejack said. I could feel blood running into my checks
"Um okay.." I said nervously wondering who this 'Rarity' is.
"Well I don't blame her, you do have some charming looks left" Twilight said with a faint blush that I didn't see.
"Oh my gosh!" I heard from behind the two, who turned around.
"Are you hurt?" A winged pony rushed to my side in a blink of an eye.
"Um Twilight said that I had many broken ribs, 3 broken legs, and a cracked horn" I said. The pegasus' jaw hit the floor
"She's Fluttershy" Twilight ID'ed the advanced biological being "She get's all crazy when someone is hurt but she's normally just what her name is"
"So I've knowticed." I smiled. After meeting Pinkie and Rarity, it was getting dark.
"Erm, Didn't you say you were studying healing magic?" I asked Twilight
"Yea why?" She asked
"Well I'm wondering if you could... you know... uh patch me up?"
"Oh! I totally forgot about that! Give me a second" she told me. Her horn started to glow and just like that I felt my body reorganizing itself.
"Thanks Twilight!" I exclaimed hoping to my feet. Twilight on the other hand was just about to collapse in exhaustion
"yeaa.. nooo probleeemmm" Her words slurred and eyes half shut
"whoa whoa, here, go to sleep while I try to figure myself out okay?" Twilight was already asleep in the bed before I finished. I walked out into the library to find no hole from impact what so ever. Twilight must of used magic to clean the place up. except for the black dent on the floor where I crash landed and fell asleep there.
