( I thought Id do something a Lil more creative this time around, this takes place in the future of my own pictures of which I have recently done where apple bloom is tormented and survives her sister Apple-jacks death)
It's been years since we first met. i remember that night well, while me and my sis had escaped our prison. i remember the warmth of the tears pouring down my face as my sister lay dead beside me, murdered by a Human weapon. i was next, i had never been so scared in my entire life.
Then, out of nowhere it seemed. a dark stallion-like monster with a giant claw ran right to the human about to reunite with my sister, my brother, my grannie and all my friends in Pony-ville... I hear the sound of bones cracking, flesh tearing, screaming.....
the dark one had with one swoop swung his claw knocking the human several hooves away. when it landed, it stopped moving, making any nose. just like my sister.........
It turned its attention to me and all i could do was try my best to wake up my sister so that she could protect me from this, this, MONSTER... i begged and pleaded to Celestia to wake my sister up, i cant see well now, the tears keep coming, i'm panicking. my legs wont move, sooooo cold.........
i close my eyes thinking "this is it, can this really be how it ends?" able to do nothing i just wait for him to take me. he takes a step closer, i get so scared, i cannot speak or yell or scream.
And then the most unlikely thing happened. the monster said "i'm sorry, i wasnt fast enough to save her..." i was in shock and awe, i still couldn't move just cry with a frozen disbelieving face.
He was just a pony, my fear had totally obscured my view of him , and the claw was an ordinary garden rake. he said he will help me get away, i told him to help applejack but he says "Apple bloom, listen to me, shes not coming back, i wish she could, but we have to leave her..." I saw tears in his eyes, he continued. "Because if we don't, me, and you, are gonna end up JUST LIKE HER UNDERSTAND!?" Then he put on a kind face something i thought impossible for a monster like him.
"Okay." I wimpered. "ill follow you, where are we going?" he said, "i have no idea, away from here" i was goign to introduce myself. "I'm Apple-" He inturrupted me. "I Know who you are, i knew your sister applejack too." confused and a little scared i asked him. "Well then whats your name Mr?" he said. "just call me Derpsickle, that-ll do for now,"
From then on Derpsickle protected Me as if I were his family. protecting, providing sustenance and shelter. helping other ponies when we could,
As the years went by I got older and had started resembling My sister as so much. Very beautiful and strong . one day, he told me he had a confession. he said that he had began to have strong feelings towards me stronger than just friendship and a sense of guardianship. I wasn't surprised, i was happy. being with him the past few years i shared the same feelings. he wasn't a monster, but a kind hearted stallion.
a few weeks later i'm with child, i was so happy, but being on the run is no place for a foal. it finally happened we were attacked by humans again and this time he dispatched so many with his rake and they'd all ran scared even though they had guns, i remember the end of the scuffle, i was barely conscious and my left eye was pain almighty!. it had been grazed by a human bullet. it was so so painful.....
one day, Derpsickle was scouting out an area ahead so we could forage for food, we needed things for the foal on the way, it would not be long before it was time. we were desperate. until we realized it was a trap.
this is hard to remember, so hard... Derp stepped onto a what he called a land mine...... an infernal trap designed by humans to kill other creatures. We didn't even have a moment to say goodbye. i fell to my knees and could not move my body for what seemed like eternity. after i came too i reluctantly took his hat and rake weapon as mementos.
i had buried his remains under a baby apple tree. we had marked it earlier as a sign of our love... I tied my mothers red bow i had word since i was a filly around a one of the branches.
I had to keep moving, he taught me that. I had to leave the past behind, he taught me so much about How to survive in the ruined world. the baby will come any day now and nothing is more important than living now.
as i approach his burial site i try to stay strong but the tears still come, it has been years since i visited this place, my mother's bow still fluttering on the branch, our hoof prints on the tree,
My savior, my guardian, my teacher, my lover, my friend....... hes been gone for 8 years now........he may no longer be here, but he has left me the greatest gift a stallion can give a mare..............and every time i look back at my little colt, it makes me so happy and sad at the same time, he resembles his father so much...........
"Mom? where are we going?" "you going to visit your father today son. " WHAT REALLY!!!!"
"yaaaaaaaaaay" "i'm so excited mom"
There is still hope for happiness, in the future. for friendship, and family is still magic even in this destroyed thing of which we call a world.
