A Pony Tale Pt. 4
The next morning Dan met up with Derpy and the 2 headed to the hospital. When they got there Fluttershy was outside talking to Spike, Angel was there as well her fur apparently cleaned. The groups exchanged greeting and Dan spoke up.
"Why did you attack us yesterday?" Dan demanded.
Dan was not happy about being attack by the pony he set out to save. Fluttershy backed off, frightened she began to mutter.
"I can't hear you." said Dan.
"Stop it Dan." said Spike.
"Look I want to know what happened to make her attack." said Dan.
"She was cursed." said Spike.
"Cursed?" asked Dan.
"Yes." answered Fluttershy.
"Can you explain?" asked Dan.
Fluttershy took a deep breath.
"You see, a dark force is cursing ponys, when cursed the pony loses control over themselves." answered Fluttershy.
"So they become unwilling slaves?" asked Dan.
"Yes." answered Fluttershy.
"Can you tell us anything else about the curse?" asked Dan.
"Yes, the cursed ponys have their manes and eyes turn blood red so the others know who to attack. The cursed ponys also have their abilities enhanced beyond their normal capabilities making them difficult to defeat. The only way to reverse this is to defeat them in a fight and have them look at somepony they care about. Once the pony is cured he or she can never be cursed again." answered Fluttershy.
"I see, so when we beat you you turned back to normal because you care for Pinkie?" asked Dan.
"Yes." answered Fluttershy.
"That dark pony must have a lot of power to do this." said Dan.
"The dark pony is not responsible she is just another victim, only one pony can curse ponys like this." said Fluttershy.
"Who?" asked Dan.
Fluttershy began to whimper, after a few moments she cries.
"I can't say it, I'm sorry, just thinking about that name just makes me *sniff*." said Fluttershy.
Dan puts his hoof on Fluttershys back.
"There there now, it's ok." said Dan.
"What's our next move?" asked Derpy.
Dan realized he forgot to ask Spike about the new around town.
"Any news Spike?" asked Dan.
"Nope, sorry." answered Spike.
Suddenly a voice calls out.
"Are you the one whose saving ponys?" asked the voice.
Dan turned around, in front of him is a blue unicorn, she is wearing a purple pointed hat decorated with blue and yellow stars and a matching cape with a button shaped like a gemstone.
"Yes." answered Dan.
"Well The Great and Powerful Trixie knows where one of your friends is." said the unicorn.
"Cool, where is she?" asked Dan.
"What are you up to Trixie?" asked Spike.
"The Great and Powerful Trixie is not up to anything, I just want to help, that`s all." answered Trixie.
"And maybe restore you image after the incident with the ursa minor while you're at it?" asked Spike.
Trixie begins to get nervous.
"Enough." said Dan.
Trixie breaths a sigh of relief.
"You said you know where one of the kidnapped ponys are, where is this pony?" asked Dan.
Trixie points to a mountain in the distance.
"See that mountain with the cave near the top? I saw a pony carrying another pony up there." answered Trixie.
"Rainbow Dash and Pinkie. Alright, let's go." said Dan.
"The Great and Powerful Trixie would like to accompany you to the mountain." said Trixie.
"Dan, Trixie is a fraud, her magic is just one big show. She would only get in the way." said Spike.
"That's not true. The Great and Powerful Trixie is the best magician in all of Equestria." said Trixie.
Dan was confused, he could sense that Trixie had powerful magic but what if Spike was right.
"Show me." said Dan.
"Very well." said Trixie.
Trixie starts doing a bunch of flashy magic tricks. Dan was not convinced though.
"I can see you're talented at putting on a show but I need to know how much damage you can do." said Dan.
Trixie paused for a moment. She charges up for a moment and hits a nearby tree with a burst of magic, knocking it down.
"See, The Great and Powerful Trixie can do damage with her magic." said Trixie.
"It also helped that the tree you knocked down was dead and beginning to rot." said Dan.
"See Dan, Trixie is a fraud." said Spike.
"However, your magic can do some damage it seems. Lat's go." said Dan.
"The Great and Powerful Trixie complements you on your wise decision." said Trixie.
"You in Fluttershy?" asked Dan.
"Ok, I'll help." said Fluttershy.
Dan can tell Fluttershy is really nervous.
"Are you sure?" asked Dan.
"Yes." said Fluttershy.
The group set out for the mountain. Meanwhile at the base of another mountain.
"You sure there is a pony in this mountain?" asked Apple Bloom.
"Absolutely." said Scootaloo.
"Why are we here again?" asked Sweetie Belle.
"That guy won't let us help so we're finding a pony to save ourselves." answered Scootaloo.
They looked up at the mountain, the mountain has a cavern inside.
"Come on, lets go in." said Apple Bloom.
"What makes you think a pony needs saving in here anyway?: asked Sweetie Belle.
"What better place to hide somepony?" said Scootaloo.
"oooh..." said Sweetie Belle.
The CMC went into the cave in the mountainside.
"I wonder what a hero cutie mark would look like." said Apple Bloom.
"Maybe it'll be a pony in a cape." said Sweetie Belle.
The CMC continued into the cavern, after walking for hours the reach a large room. Suddenly a voice calls out.
"So you have come to save your friend?" called the voice.

"Did you really think it would be that easy?" asked the voice.
"Hows this possible? We just kicked your flank." said Scootaloo.
"The only flank you kicked was that of a weakling of a minion." said the voice.
"If you're so tough, show yourself and prove it." demanded Sweetie Belle.
"Very well." said the voice.
A large shadow looms over the CMC.
"No, but how, why?" asks Apple Bloom.
Meanwhile back with Dans group.
"And then I pounced on the thief and held him down, when the authorities arrived they took him away, and then my cutie mark appeared." said
"Wow." said Derpy.
"The Great and Powerful Trixie wants to know how much farther it is." said Trixie.
"We're here." said Dan.
