  1. Continuing the adventures of Cricket Chryssie from https://ponepaste.org/3561
  2.  
  3. >Another day, another morning chirp
  4. >Cricket has been opening up to you recently
  5. >It must have been the chocolate you got her
  6. >But how does she eat?
  7. >...
  8. >CRASH!
  9. >You run out to the kitchen and there she is, on the floor, covered in heartios, her favorite cerial
  10. >Her wings buzz against the floor franticly, trying to get up to no avail
  11. >You watch her from afar for a breif minute, not wanting to startle her too much
  12. >Finally you approach her
  13. >She starts screaming bloody murder and flailing about, kicking her hooves out wildly, her eyes locked on you
  14. >As you come closer you stand there, just out of rane of her frantic kicks as to protect your shins
  15. >You cant help but feel sorry for the little gal, she's must be terrified of your touch
  16. >You wonder what happened to her before you got her, poor thing
  17. >You muster up the most calming voice you can, even though its not much
  18. "Hey hey hey there, calm down little Miss, its okay"
  19. >Her eyes widen and she screeches louder
  20. >myears.jpg
  21. >You use your epic gamer skills to manuever around her while she has her eyes closed, careful to avoid her flying numchucks
  22. >In one swift movement she's in your arms, your hand holding her scruff
  23. >Surprisingly that worked, you didnt think a scruff grab would illicit the same reaction as it does in cats
  24. >You look down at the plastic pone
  25. >Shes shaking hard with her eyes closed, a small sad wimplering escaping her voicebox
  26. >Unsure of what to do, you hold her close to your chest
  27. >...
  28. >She reacts...
  29. >Calmly
  30. >Driving her muzzle into your chest, she burrows in and melts in your arms, no longer the scared and shivering little bug of a few minutes ago
  31. >Up until this point you havent even been able to see her very much
  32. >You'd walk by, and she'd run the moment she saw you thundering her way
  33. >Occasionally you were able to get her to come close, like when you gave her Heartios for the first time
  34. >And when you gave her chocolates, the heart shaped ones
  35. >You still wonder where all of that goes...
  36. >Either way, outside of scratching on the glass door to get out and chirp on the balcony, and occasionally seeing her eating the bowls of food you leave in the mornings and nights, you havent seen her much at all
  37. >Not even when her batteries ran out that one time
  38. >But now
  39. "What....?"
  40. >Shes.... purring?
  41. >No. Not purring, its a soft rythmic chirping, but low, like the coo of a dove
  42. >She certainly is a love bug isnt she...
  43. >Not knowing what to do, you stand there for a few minutes, until finally she seems to have fallen asleep
  44. >That all must have been quite a scare for her to sap all that power
  45. >Speaking of power, how does she even work?
  46. >At first she had to charge, it seemed, but now she can sleep?
  47. >You dont even remember ever seeing her sleep
  48. >You did reskin her and fix some parts, and you know she has logic boards, but outside of that you dont quite know how she gets her energy
  49. >You originally had to plug her into your computer when she died
  50. >She was too skiddish to catch when she was awake
  51. >If you were to take a guess, you'd say she can somehow get energy from digesting food like a human, but that must mean she has to sleep to conserve it when energy is low?
  52. >Who knows.jpg
  53. >After you confirmed she was in fact "sleeping" as far as you could tell, you set her down on the couch and tucked her in
  54. >...
  55. >She sleeps for a good while
  56. >A good little sleeper
  57. >After cleaning the fallen heartios and solumly picking up the pieces of a broken plate that had come down with the storm, you grab your phone and take a seat across the couch from the little ponycom
  58. >You want to watch some youtube videos, but to be honest your curiosity and want to understand overpowers your routine figner taps
  59. >When you got her at first you were mad
  60. >Dissapointed, depressed
  61. >You needed a friend, a real friend, but she was just a dumb cricket
  62. >It got to you so bad that you let her battery die at one point
  63. >...dissassembled her, put her in a box in your closet
  64. >And though at first it was liberating, it tore at you like a black disgusting stomach-bug
  65. >You had brought her back out and looked up where you bought her
  66. >Sure enough you were totally ripped off, and you seriously considered rebuilding her to get what you paid for, but...
  67. >that wouldn't be right
  68. >You knew it wouldn't
  69. >After a second you remember what you were doing as a duck stares at you from your phone screen
  70. >You've moved on from that, and after she started being a bit more responsive to your advances you became more okay with it
  71. >Heh, you act like it has been months
  72. >Anyway, after doing a little research you find that the model you thought she was has absolutely no kind digestive capabilities, and the only other results that seemed to have anything promising turned out to be shadows of info
  73. >You look at her laying there
  74. "Whatever she is, she is certainly not a normal ponycom"
  75. >You sigh
  76. >It's whatever
  77. >After about 3 hours the lump in the blanket stirs and grogy bug and bird like sounds come from under the blanket
  78. >Her head pops up and swivels around, eyelids droopy
  79. >You guess she doesnt notice you, it has gotten a little dark since the Fall of the Heartios
  80. >Her hears flick spaztically like little radar dishes as her eyes start to brighten up with full awakeness
  81. >Her wings twitch just a tad
  82. >You wonder if she can fly with those
  83. >A little tongue escapes her mouth and licks her lips
  84. >Right, she was hungry wasnt she?
  85. >As you watch her in stillness your foot starts to turn into TV static
  86. >You try your hardest to move your newly adopted glob of ░░ attatched to your leg, but Chrys notices
  87. >In an instant she flinches and scurries away behind the arm of the couch
  88. >But...
  89. >She comes back
  90. >As you settle down she peeks her shiny emeralds over her cover and watches you, her twitchy eyes taking in all the info they can
  91. >But then she looks at (you)
  92. >Right then you can tell she's thinking about something
  93. >Not just merely reacting as a simple mind, but much more
  94. >All you can do is stare back into her green orbs and feel something... different, for once
  95. >Something unique
  96. >Finally you muster up some words to release the breath you have been holding
  97. "Hey Chryssie"
  98. >She ducks down a little bit, her servos weering, but doesnt run away
  99. >She looks around the room, to the TV and the blanket, and over to the cabinate in the kitchen, then back to you
  100. >You look over at the kitchen
  101. >The box of heartios, now partially depleted, still sits atop the counter
  102. >Back to her
  103. "Are you hungry?"
  104. >She flinches a little less this time, but says nothing, her eyes locked to yours
  105. >You dont know what she's thinking.
  106. >It could be anything
  107. >A part of your brain wants to say "it could be nothing", but that doesnt seem right at all
  108. >Those eyes
  109. >They're too... alive
  110. >Alive...
  111. "≋≋≋"
  112. >You look down at your stomach, and so does Chrys
  113. "I see... It is that time, isnt it"
  114. >A look at your watch confirms it
