He's a shadow in the darkness, a silver streak in the sky. His name is bandit, a black furred, black maned Pegasus with silver tipped wings and a silver line of fur around his eyes giving him a masked look. His hoof falls were silent as he entered the house that belongs to Derpy Hooves. He glanced around waiting to few moments making sure he hadn’t disturbed the sleeping occupant. Satisfied, he crept on silently searching the house till he found Derpy’s bedroom. Opening the door quietly he snuck inside, seeing the pony still asleep he grinned. He had seen her around in his short time in Ponyville. He had a bit of a crush on her, and he felt a bit guilty for what he was about to do. But he couldn’t let his feeling get in the way. He crept closer and closer to her bed. She turned in her sleep and he paused, pressing himself against the ground, he waited till she settled before moving again to her nightstand where a bag of coins sat. gripping
the bag with his teeth he carefully, slowly lifted the bag keeping the noise low. He glanced at the filly again before making his way out of the bedroom and out of the house as quietly as he had entered. Letting out a sigh of relief he flew off heading home.
The black colt landed in front of his small shack and went inside. Setting the bag of bits on the table next to three others, He had already paid a visit to Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, and Pinkie Pie. He needed three more hits before he could send the money back to the poor ponies back in the village he once lived in. Noting there wasn’t enough time tonight for another hit, he decided to sleep.
It was a bright and sunny day, a little after noon as Bandit watched the energetic ponies around him go about their day. He heard a group talking about how the Bit Thief had stolen twenty bits from Derpy’s house while she slept. They wondered who could have done it and the young colt grinned to himself, he found it exciting, feeling like Robin Hood. From across the street Twilight Sparkle glanced at Bandit shaking her head before turning to Spike. “How can he not realize that we all know it’s him, we know why he's been taking the money and that we’re setting it out for him to take?” The young dragon just gave a shrug as they continued on their way.
