The one who waits and comes back. Part 1.The soft sound of hooves against the tile floor echoed throughout the throne room. For many years Canterlot hadn't changed at all, it was just as Twilight remembered it from her fillyhood. There was no one except her as she looked at the stained glass windows; Parts of the throne room were faintly washed in a colorful palette, projected from the stained glass with the aid of the faint moonlight. As she looked up at one of the window panes, the purple unicorn unwittingly fell into reminiscent thought.One window, told the story of six multi-colored ponies that defeated an evil mare whose intention was to curse equestria into an eternal night. The crude depiction of rays of light that emanated from the heroines, lead to the villain and wrap around her in a blanket of multiple colors; sort of like a rainbow. the colorful magic was able to wash away the evil; her bitterness and her resentment clean from her heat. Twilight remembered well how scared she was when she first conjured the power
The Road Left Alone: Chapter Seven."Reggie! Hey Reggie!"Reggie heard the voice behind and turned around. A little white griffon, flew to him from the small forest. His name was Dawn and he was a son of a guard captain in the Yellow Claw clan."Hey there! What you're up too?" he said as his friend approached him."Dad told me not to go in the forest, so... I went there and guess what I found!" white griffon was very happy. He was hiding something behind him and Reggie became very curious. Brown griffon tried to look what was it, but Dawn sneered."No no, that doesn't work like this, you should guess!" Dawn said."It's a... Stone?""Nope!" white griffon laughed."Em... Something really old and cool?" Reggie scratched his head. He had no clues."Bullseye! It is this!" he showed what he had behind him. It was an amulet with a picture of some griffon warrior, perhaps a hero."Just a piece of metal, nothing interesting." Reggie said."No, you don't understa..." Two friends heard a voice from Dawn's father somewhere behind."
The Road Left Alone: Chapter Six.Cold raindrops were falling from the grey sky."I can't believe that..."Six days passed since Dawn and Lightning Reel escaped the Ironclaw massacre. The rainy weather followed them all the way from the southern Wilds till Trottingham. Usually warm and soft, the wind became freezing. Seemed like Equestria itself mourned the loss of a good warrior, kind friend and a brave griffon.Many friends of Dawn died there, but only Reggie's death shocked him so much. When he saw the blade from his companion's body, he dashed through the building, trying to do anything, but there was nothing. A puddle of blood was the only thing that left of a brown griffon.He hadn't seen who did that either. Seeing something in the dark night, looking through the bright purple fire was almost impossible and he ashamed himself because of that. Every night he has nightmares. Faces of his friends, their voices and happy laugh. It was just too hard to bear alone.Lightning Reel was mostly spending his time on the cl
The Road Left Alone: Chapter Five.The sky was tighten up with dark black clouds. The air around was heavy. But there was no rain. Some strange kind of thunderstorm was coming on the little village of Ironclaw. All houses were closed, a weak wooden wall around them was providing a little protection from the bandits, not more and Captain Dawn hoped that it won't break up in the first minutes of the assault.White griffon was standing on the barricade with a group of officers who was still alive after many enemy raids. Below them were soldiers and citizens of the Ironclaw, who took any weapon they found to protect their home and families. None of them had battle experience yet. They were just a bunch of farmers. Few dozen ponies and griffons against the darkness.A nerve-racking silence covered everything around. Everyone was looking at the impenetrable fog ahead. It appeared when the patrol noticed the movement in the hills to the north from the village.Suddenly a blaze of purple fire bursted somewhere deep in the fog.
The Road Left Alone: Chapter Four."Hello, my old friend..."Reggie quickly grabbed his sword and looked around."Whoa whoa whoa, why so unfriendly?" said a mysterious person."Who are you? Show yourself!" Reggie called out.Strange earth pony with black stripes on his body and mane made of fire blazed out infront of the griffon. The light from the mane of mysterious visitor illuminated everything around."Who...What are you?..." Reggie never have seen a creature like this before."Ha ha, I love how you guys react on me!" creature laughed. "But now, I have something to tell you." the expression on it's face changed to serious. "Until this moment, your journey was just like a simple walk in a park. Great dangers are waiting for you ahead. Be careful what you do and what you say, keep your friends close and remember: Once born, the light lives till the darkness." with these words creature disappeared.Reggie didn't move. He was standing and thinking about creature's words when Lightning landed next to him."What happened
The Road Left Alone: Chapter Three."This evening is perfect..." Reggie was sitting on the river coast, watching as the sun hid behind the mountains. It reminded him about his own lands. About the Red Mountains and the red spiky rocks they were made of. When he was a little, he liked to watch them in the evenings. It looked like they were glowing red. When he grew up, he tried to flew ontop of these mountines, but they were just too high for him.The familiar blue pegasus landed next to him."What's up?" he said.He had a funny cowboy hat on his head."Nothing much." Reggie answered. He looked at the blue pegasus. "Where did you get this?""This? Oh, heh, i bought it from the Apple Family, they have many hats like this!" Lightning laughed."You are the one who saved me in the Southern Diamond Marshes, ain't you?" Reggie asked."Well... Yes, but I was not alone. Arh helped me and thanks to Dawn we knew where were you going." Lightning Reel sat on the little stone close to the water."Arh?! Is he alive?" Reggie stood up fro
The Road Left Alone: Chapter Two.'Who is this?""I have never seen him before...""Another griffon? I bet he is rude as Gilda.""Gilda? Oh, yes, i remember. That 'cool' griffon..."Reggie ignored the voices of ponies around. He finally reached his destination and complaints about some other griffon who made not a good impression on the locals couldn't stop him now. Not after everything he made to be here.There was many ponies on the streets. They were walking, playing, talking and having fun in this gorgeous day. "No fights... No lies... A Dream, I'm sure." Reggie thought.He turned around the corner and found himself standing on the village square. Big house was in the middle of it. It looked like this house was sweet itself. Candies on the roof and walls, caramel sticks as the columns, a little tower that was made as a big pink muffin."I found it..." Reggie sighed."Found what?" Wait a second! O-o-o-o-o!" voice from nowhere sounded very funny and happy."A..." he tried to find the source of it, but it s
The Road Left Alone: Chapter One.Equestrian border. Year 1001 by Celestian calendar.It was dark... The rain was not making it easier to see and the wind was trying to prevent his every step. He couldn't see a thing in this darkness."Where the hell am I?" he asked the darkness ahead, but no one seemed to be near. "Damn it, i miss those days in Baltimare..."Moving through the falling water was very hard, his feathers and the coat he bought few days ago were wet. Starving, frozen and lonely he reached the invisible border of his lands."You are selfish!" said the voice from the memories. "You did not deserved to be called a griffon! I don't want to see you anymore!""Screw you... Screw you all. You wanted me to leave? Fine! Satisfied?" he argued. The memories of the bright, shiny village he saw in a dream appeared in his mind. He refused to think about this mirage. It brought too much pain and sadness. "Friends? They called themselves "friends"? They left me once they had a chance...Heh, i guess that's how "fri
