Dawn Bright hung her head low as she entered the house. She didn't even look up when her little brother, Sky Shot, and dad, Quick Wing, asked her how it went. She stumbled up the stairs to her room. Inside, Pyro, the silver/ 金牌 dragon she had found as a baby, was dusting her bookshelves.
"So how'd it go," Pyro asked.
Dawn just groaned and leapt into bed. With that response the sarcastic little dragon replied, "Oh so it went amazing this 年 and 你 did not get grounded for a 月 from 图书 like last time?"
"No, worse," Dawn grunted.
Pyro answered, not able to keep the surprise from his voice, "Huh? What could be worse for 你 than not reading? I mean, it's all 你 do."
"How about being forced on a voyage with the six ponies 你 despise the most?" Dawn Bright answered in a rant.
"WHAT? what voyage? How come I'm never told these things?" Pyro asked as he off his ladder.
Dawn sighed and answered, "You see, the Unknown is a mysterious land beyond Equestria boundaries. No 小马 knows what's out there because the only way in is through a dense forest 或者 the Great River. It is thought that the Great River runs through a large part of the Unknown. So Princess Celsetia and Princess Luna decided that it was high time to explore this foreign land. So using their magic they created a 船, 小船 to do this called the Voyager. They apparently have been collecting ponies from around Equestria to go on this voyage, even the prince, Moonrunner. Apparently my mom thought it would be a good experience and signed me and 你 up, along with Applebuck, Hummingbird, Swirly Works, Creativity, Sonic, Rainboom, and Flashbolt."
"Wait let me get this straight, your going on a voyage into a strange land with six ponies 你 hate? And I have to go! Since when has Twilight decided to punish me!" Pyro replied.
"Exactly- PYRO WHAT DO 你 MEAN THIS IS YOUR PUNISHMENT!!!!!" Dawn Bright exclaimed as she came to realize the meaning of the baby dragon's words.
Pyro answered, "Weeell 你 have to admit being in a room with 你 seven is like, well suicide."
Dawn Bright sighed, and curled up in her 床, 床上 as she mumbled about waking her up in the morning. She closed her eyes, exhausted from the day.
"RISE AND SHINE SLEEPY HEAD," Pyro yelled in the sleeping Dawn Bright's ear. She jumped up and landed on the floor.
"Pyro!" the half asleep Dawn Bright groaned
Dawn trudged down the stair. Her family and Pyro were down stairs eating breakfast.
"Rise and shine sleepy head, don't forget about the tour of the 船, 小船 we have with Princess Celestia and the others."
Dawn Bright groaned. She had completely forgotten about the tour she had of the Voyager with the hateful others. She ate hear scrambled eggs as she pretended to listen to her parents. Pyro had all ready eaten his gemstones and was practically bouncing off the walls.
Twilight finished her breakfast and motioned Dawn and Pyro out the door. The two followed. Dawn looked around Ponyville. This is going to be one of the last times I see my home, Dawn Bright thought glumly. Before she knew it, Dawn was bowing to the Princess. She eyed the others with disapproval.
"Let's begin the tour," 彩虹 Dash prompted seeing the tension between the kids. They all walked onto the brown boat. They were lead down the stairs.
The site took Dawn Bright's breath away. Under the seemenly ordinary deck, was a town square. Instead of shops being in the open, there were many doors along the walls that led inside. Dawn peeked into a room and saw a fully furnished bakery. Princess Celestia smiled at her wowwed subjects.
"Now I'll 显示 你 your accomadations," Princess Celestia 说 as she walked towards one of the many hallways leading from the square.
They walked for a while until they reached a gate. With in the gate their was a large 苹果 field covered in well 苹果 trees. At the 墙 there was a door.
"This is where you'l stay, along with 螃蟹 Apple, 糖果 Apple, and 苹果 Seed," 苹果 jack told her son.
"Wow really, ma? It's terrific!" 苹果 Buck told his mom while he hugged her.
The group moves on.
"We want the ponies here to collect new species to bring back to Equestria so we created this caretaker house," Princess Celestia 说 as the group reached a small wood door covered in ivy.
"Oh my! Who gets that job Princess?" 蜂鸟 inquired.
"Why 你 do, Hummingbird. I've heard that your as good with 动物 as your mother," Princess Celsetia answered.
They continued on. Dawn Bright would live above a bookshop (but she still brought her own collection a.k.a. every book ever written), Swirly Works had her own room. Thankfully there was a window so she wouldn't test her creations inside. Cre was 给 what she had always dreamed of, an art studio. And finally,Sonic and Flashbolt would be in the 天文台 tower. As the group departed the sunset in the west. Dawn Bright yawned as they headed back home.
"Wow that's pretty cool," the tired Pyro 说 from Dawn's back.
"Yeah," she agreed.
The two climbed up to her room. Dawn Bright tucked Pyro in and then got into 床, 床上 herself. She closed her eyes, all the worries from the 日 melting away. And in the shadows something grinned with malice.
