  1. >You’ve gotten things done early to visit Twilight, and just arrived at Golden Oaks.
  2. >Knocking, you wait around and hope she is up.
  3. >Surely with magic she could help Addie fly, even if it’s only for a little bit, right?
  4. >The door opens and Spike greets you.
  5. >”Morning Anon, what are you doing here this early?”
  6. “Morning Spike, is Twilight up? I got to ask her some questions and possibly a favor.”
  7. >He nods and calls out.
  8. >”Hey Twi, Anon is here to see you!”
  9. >He heads back in with you following him.
  10. >Books in a few stacks nearby, more or less the same as you last saw it.
  11. >Twilight comes out of the kitchen with a smile on her face.
  12. >”Good morning Anon, what can I help you with?”
  13. “Hey there, do you know any flying spells?”
  14. >She blinks and frowns.
  15. >”Anon, I’m not sure what that kinda of spell would do to you, so I’m afraid I can’t help you.”
  16. >You chuckle and shake your head.
  17. “Poorly worded, my bad. What I meant was, do you know of any flying spells for a pony.”
  18. >Her eyebrows raise and she nods.
  19. >”Yes of course, one actually, but unfortunately it’s quite difficult to cast and the wings are very fragile.”
  20. >Well shit.
  21. >”Though I have to ask, who are you asking for about this spell?”
  22. >You’d tell Twilight, but you don’t want to upset Addie.
  23. “A friend of mine, she wants to fly.”
  24. >”A friend of yours? That’s wonderful to hear Anon! Please tell me all about her. I want to write to the princess on how you made your first friend.”
  25. >Her horn lights up and a parchment with quill float in front of her.
  26. >You’d rather not spend all day answering Twilight’s questions, like you tried to do when you mentioned the internet.
  27. “I’ll explain later, is there any other way for a pony to fly?”
  28. >Twilight scrunches, but sighs.
  29. >She floats the parchment and quill back to their previous places.
  30.  
  31. >”Fine, but other than some vehicles, like a balloon, there isn’t much to say. Of course there is a history of ponies trying to fly that aren’t pegasus ponies of course.”
  32. >Now you’ve done it.
  33. >Her horn ignites again, and several books float around her as she beams.
  34. >”One of the earliest recorded cases was the Flight Brothers attempting to fly using a self propelled machine on the Firefly runway. Of course it didn’t work, but that didn’t stop them from attempting-”
  35. >You cut her off.
  36. “Please, no history lessons today.”
  37. >She gives you a small glare and huffs.
  38. >”It’s actually interesting when you give it a chance.”
  39. >Probably is, but that’s not what you’re here for.
  40. “Do you know of any ponies who deal with flight? They might be able to help.”
  41. >Setting the books down, she brings her hoof to her chin and starts to think.
  42. >”Hmm...Actually, there is several in the town. I can give you a list of names, but to be honest, they will likely tell you the same thing I did.”
  43. “Doesn’t matter, I’ll give it a shot.”
  44. >Her smile widens.
  45. >”I haven’t known you for that long Anon, but it’s surprising to see somepony mean this much to you. Is she your marefriend by any chance?”
  46. >Where the fuck did that come from?
  47. “What? No, she’s my friend. I have only known for a little under a week.”
  48. >Twilight giggles and waves her hoof.
  49. >”Sorry, had to tease you a little. Give me just a moment to get the names for you.”
  50. >You know Rarity can be like that, but seeing Twilight do it, is a little worrying.
  51. >As she is writing down the names, you look at the nearby clock to see how much time you have left.
  52. >It’s going to be cutting it close, but you did tell her around noon, so there’s that.
  53. >As soon as Twilight floats you the letter, you dash outside quickly.
  54. “Thanks Twilight, see you later!”
  55. >You hear her call out as you leave.
  56.  
  57. >”You’re welcome, but remember to tell me later for the letter to the princess!”
  58. >You’re borderline running, trying not to run into anypony.
  59. >Along the way you think back to what was said.
  60. >Are you two really friends?
  61. >Probably, she did confide in you about her dreams.
  62. >As for what you’re doing for her, yeah that is a bit much for someone you barely know.
  63. >Why are you doing this?
  64. >It’s not like you two are dating, but you feel some kind of compulsion to help her.
  65. >A need to care for another?
  66. >Yeah, lets go with that.
  67. >You arrive at Addie’s and knock at the door a little winded.
  68. >Got to start working out more.
  69. >The locks get undone and Addie opens the door.
  70. “Hi Addie.”
  71. >Her gold eyes focus on you, and she doesn’t appear to be as frightened as previously.
  72. >”...H-hello Anon...Come inside...”
  73. >You follow her in and walk to the center of the room.
  74. >”...Um Anon…?”
  75. >Looking over to Addie, she is nervously shuffling.
  76. >Probably wants to try something different.
  77. >”...Could you sit by the window…?...I’d like to try a different angle...”
  78. >Called it.
  79. >You bring a chair by the front window and sit.
  80. >”...Also, if it-it’s not too much to ask...But could you look out it…?”
  81. “Yeah, sure.”
  82. >You look out it and eventually you hear her start to sketch away.
  83.  
  84. >Your moving as fast as you can, making sure to make as little mistakes as possible.
  85. >Something inside of you drives you to make this a better drawing.
  86. >Maybe something more than acceptable.
  87. >Doubtful, you never make anything that good.
  88. >As you finish putting on the final touches, you notice a few mistakes.
  89. >You pause, and let out a small sigh.
  90. >How’d you miss those?
  91. >Erasing the mistakes, you start up again.
  92. >Yesterday you confided in Anon, you’re not sure why.
  93. >A part of you screamed no, but the other half said yes.
  94. >You stop sketching and look it over again.
  95.  
  96. “...It’s okay...Could be better...”
  97. >Looking over to Anon, he is still looking out the window.
  98. >You grab the picture and bring it over to him.
  99. >As you try to show it to him, he jumps.
  100. >”Huh? Oh, you’re finished.”
  101. >Strange, this is the first time you actually scared him.
  102. >His eyes study the picture and like the previous times, he smiles.
  103. >”It looks great, almost like you took a picture of me with a camera.”
  104. >Though he says that, you still feel like he is saying that to make you feel better.
  105. “...Thank you...How about this time y-you lean against the chair...”
  106. >He stands up, goes around and rests his hands on the back of the chair.
  107. >”Like this?”
  108. “...Yes...That’s per-perfect...”
  109. >You trot back to the easel to set up again.
  110. >Would be nice if you could stop stuttering around him.
  111. >Makes you look like a stupid filly and you know it.
  112. >Shaking your head, you start to focus.
  113. >Another sheet is ready, and you pick up your pencil to begin.
  114. >Though you pause this time.
  115. >You take the time to truly take the whole scene in.
  116. >Then you begin to sketch.
  117. >Try to focus on how his clothes hug his body, the look of concentration on his face.
  118. >It’s always the little details that matter the most.
  119. >Slowly his form takes shape on the sheet, along with the chair.
  120. >You finish up the sketch, adding a last minute shading to his arm.
  121. >Your eyes dart back and forth from him to the picture again.
  122. >It slowly dawns on you.
  123. >This is probably the best sketch you’ve done thus far.
  124. >The small bit of joy you feel makes your heart flutter.
  125. >You shift from side to side in a little dance.
  126. >Anon must’ve noticed and started to talk.
  127. >”Are you alright? Is the drawing finished.”
  128. >You stop suddenly and your face heats up.
  129. “...Ye-yeah it’s all done...Co-come and see...”
  130. >As he approaches, you turn your head away from him.
  131. >You hear him stand next to you looking at the picture.
  132.  
  133. >What’s gotten into you?
  134. >Before you go too deep into thought, he starts to talk.
  135. >”Seriously Addie, you should consider seeing if a museum will accept your works.”
  136. >You’ve seen plenty of art, this isn’t on the same level.
  137. “...I-I’d rather not...”
  138. >”I’m not trying to push you, it’s just that good.”
  139. “...No, it really isn’t A-Anon...”
  140. >You hear him shift and let out a sigh.
  141. >”I know you don’t see it, but this is really good Addie. I’d like to help you see that.”
  142. >Your feel that feeling from before in your heart again.
  143. “...Why...Why help me..?”
  144. >”Well, I’d like to think we’re friends, and friends help one another.”
  145. >You’ve heard others say that before, but it’s hard to believe it.
  146. >Should you really believe him?
  147. >Are you two really friends?
  148. >…
  149. >While you’re not completely sure, you desperately want it to be true.
  150. >At least one more shot in your life to see if it’s possible.
  151. >You turn your head and look up at him.
  152. >He is looking down at you with that smile he likes to wear.
  153. “...Yeah...G-guess we are friends...”
  154. >Anon’s smile widens.
  155. >”Happy to hear that.”
  156. >His eyes go up to the nearby clock and his smile fades.
  157. >”I’m gonna get going home, take care Addie.”
  158. >As he starts to go, you pick up the drawing from earlier and trot over to him.
  159. “...Wa-wait...I want you to have this one too...”
  160. >He looks at it and gives you a concerned look.
  161. >”Are you sure? You already gave me one before.”
  162. >You nod.
  163. “...Yeah, friends give each other gifts...Right..?”
  164. >Anon beams and accepts the picture.
  165. >”Yes they do.”
  166. “...Goodbye Anon...”
  167. >”Goodbye Addie.”
  168. >You shut the door behind him and let yourself think aloud again.
  169. “...Maybe I can enjoy this for once...Maybe...”
