Battle of the Bulge II: Fit to be Fat (11)
[At Patch’s house…] *Patch’s phone rings*
“Hello?” questioned Patch after picking up the phone.
“Patch dahling, how wonderful. Have you gotten your mail yet? There should be an invitation waiting,” said Rainbow Dash on the other end of the phone line.
“Invitation? To what?” asked Patch.
“A very special pony has invited the entire Pudgyville town to a pool party at his house today,” explained Rainbow Dash.
“Wow, a pool party from a special pony. I’d better check now. *she runs to the mailbox* Aha, found it!” said Patch.
“You there, Patch dahling?” asked Rainbow Dash.
“Yes, I’m still here and with my invite,” answered Patch.
“Splendid, hope to see you there. I’ve already called the others. Bye-bye, dear,” said Rainbow Dash. *she hangs up the phone, followed quickly by Patch at her end*
“Mom, look what the mailpony brought me, an invite to a pool party!” said Patch excitedly.
“Well let’s see here, dear. Dear Pudgyville’er, you are cordially invited to a special pool party this afternoon at 3PM. Sounds like fun. Anyone else going?” replied Patch’s mother.
“According to Rainbow Dash, everyone in this town is invited,” recalled Patch.
“I see well I’m too busy here to go so why don’t you have fun?” suggested Patch’s mom.
“YES, thanks mom,” said Patch jumping up and down excitedly and heading off.
“Be back before your father comes back at 8PM,” called her mother.
“I will,” called Patch back. [Just outside the house of the pool party…]
“Guess this is it,” said Melody. *They head inside*
“Wonderful, you all made it. Please come in and have a dip in the pool, just don’t get the suit wet,” said Eduardo, the pool party host.
“So, if you don’t mind my asking, what’s the occasion for this pool party?” asked Starlight getting into the pool with the others.
“Why your newspaper ad of course. In more ways than one you all look like a fine group,” answered Eduardo.
“Thanks but aren’t you coming in too?” asked Melody.
“Oh no, no, this your party and besides it keeps my suit clean,” replied Eduardo.
“So what exactly do you plan to do as mayor of our town?” asked Bon Bon.
“Attending to any and all problems in this town. Your records have shown that you’ve had a couple of naysayers about your weight. As an admirer of ponies your weight, I cannot allow that. If they can’t be nice to you all as you are, then they shouldn’t be in the town at all,” replied Eduardo.
“You really admire our weights?” questioned Sweetheart.
“Absolutely, I say there’s nothing better than a pony with a soft belly over the waistline,” said Eduardo. *Sweetheart blushes*
“We completely agree,” said Star Catcher.
“That’s what this town is for, with the ponies and being overweight and oh you know what I mean,” said Skywishes.
“I think you’ll see that I’ll make a fine mayor for this town,” said Eduardo.
“All for allowing this pony to be our mayor, say ‘I’,” said Starlight.
“I” said everyone else together.
“Great, great. So is there any other problems going in this town, seeing as how your mayor problem is now solved?” replied Eduardo.
“We’ve got some kind of group that is spreading lies about us and use our pictures as shown from this newspaper article,” said Bright Eyes handing over the said newspaper article.
“This is an outrage! How dare they think you all act this way! I will not stand for this one bit! Tomorrow, I will find this organization and give them a run for their money,” declared Eduardo.
“We’ll help too, Mr uh….,” started Starlight.
“Please, call me Eduardo. You ponies have a right to be overweight and those who oppose have to deal with me!,” said Eduardo.
