Battle of the Bulge II: Fit to be Fat (25)
[At Melody’s house…]
“Morning twins,” said Melody.
“Hello Mewody,” answered JAL and TAL together.
“Hey, you not so fat anymore, Mewody,” remarked JAL.
“Now twins what I have I told you about mentioning a pony being fat?” scolded Melody’s mom.
“It’s alright, mom, I appreciate it actually and they’re right after all,” said Melody. *her mom turns to have a look*
“Why you have lost weight dear, that’s wonderful. Now you’re just about back to your old self again,” stated Melody’s mom.
“Guess this means I’ll have to start going to school again,” said Melody.
“What do you mean, dear?” asked her mother.
“Well our weight gain made the bus break down so we got Ms Hackney’s lessons from her website,” explained Melody.
“At least you still got the lectures and education,” replied her mother. [Later that day…]
“I think we’re truly nearing our original weights,” said Sweetheart.
“You’re right, Sweetheart. It’s much easier to walk around now,” said Starlight.
“We can show off our weight proudly again and boy am I glad to experience that again because I missed my tolerable plump belly that I had before,” said Melody.
“Well I’ll be, you’re all basically back to normal, stupendous!” remarked Eduardo.
“So are we, dahlings,” replied Rainbow Dash.
“Yes, yes, yes, Pudgyville’s glorious waistlines have been restored to their natural beauty,” said Razzaroo.
“We have tons of ponies to thank for this like Eduardo, whom has never once given up on us and shows his appreciation for unfit ponies,” said Bright Eyes.
“Those policemares also were a big help for we probably would’ve lost that case if they hadn’t stepped in to provide the necessary evidence and to lock up the Calorie Stealers once and for all, or at least for a little while,” said Bon Bon.
“Very true, Bon Bon,” said Pinkie Pie.
“All the while, this has got to be our best adventure yet,” said Patch.
“Well technically it isn’t over yet, Patch. After all, now we should be able to return to school, provided the bus is fixed,” said Bright Eyes.
“It has been fixed, Bright Eyes. In fact, it was fixed this morning but that doesn’t mean I won’t be posting lectures online, just in case you miss class for whatever reason or perhaps you forgot what I said and need a reminder for homework,” said Hackney overhearing.
“Wow for the time it took it must’ve had severe problems,” said Melody.
“Yes it was a pretty big problem that had many steps to ensure the bus was running again. The cause was that the total weight snapped the bus axles and therefore prevented the bus from moving forward. My my, you ponies have lost weight,” replied Hackney.
“We weren’t happy at the weight we were at and it wasn’t all that healthy for us either,” said Bright Eyes.
“I’m glad you all at least took my advice and speaking of advice, it’d be wise if you’d return to class on Monday,” answered Hackney.
“Yes Ms Hackney,” replied the others as Ms Hackney walks away.
“One thing’s for sure, now we’ll definitely be watching our weights but in terms of keeping the weight where it is,” said Bright Eyes.
“I totally agree, especially now that my belly’s painting is back to its normal shape,” said Star Swirl.
“What a wild couple of weeks this turned out to be,” remarked Melody.
“Even though I wasn’t there for all of it I agree anyway. I can’t believe those other ponies tried to get us to believe some phony lie about a law forbidding ponies to be overweight,” said Lickety Split.
“Though like most adventures, it always turns out well in the end and this worked out well for everyone here. I’ll stand proud to be this town’s mayor for years to come,” thought Eduardo.
