My hooves were aching and they had lost their beautiful, glitzy sparkle. My small crown atop of my head was lopsided and I only had a small amount of luggage in a bag on my back. I sat down and sighed. Is this what I really wanted? To be alone in the Everfree Forest with no food, no water and no company whatsoever? Truthfully, I wanted my sister. She was the only kind of family I actually had. And I took that for granted.
"CELESTIA!!!" I cried into the air.
I have never felt so solemn and selfish in my entire life. The thing was that I knew no one was coming for me. No one could hear me. Only I could hear myself. Tears were falling from my eyes and I didn't even know it.
"Who is out there disturbing my concentration?" Somepony zei in the distance.
I couldn't see anything since the forest was so full of pine trees.
"I can sense u are going through some complication."
"Who's there?!" I exclaimed. My high pitched voice squeaked.
I stood my ground and I was determined to defend myself from anyone who wanted to hurt me.
A white and gray striped zebra walked toward me and my small body was shaking.
I-I'm not a-afraid. I am a Princess.
"Do not be scared, little one. u may trust in me, for u will be done."
I couldn't understand she was saying. I just could not trust her. Just as I was about to scream because there was a creepy zebra trying to kidnap me, I felt little droplets of rain coming from the sky. I decided to follow Ms. zebra Stripes.
The female zebra with an unfamiliar accent closed the door to her hut with her back legs as we entered.
"I am so sorry if I had frightened you. I was just looking at something for my brew. As I saw u there in front of me, I could not let be alone and free."
Ms. zebra Stripes poured some kind of potion into a giant iron kettle.
"Excuse me miss-" I started but I was cut off door the zebra.
"Alright then, Miss Zecora. May I ask why u wanted to help me?"
Zecora kept grabbing and looking for potions in the wooden shelves that were all around us. It's like she wasn't listening to me!
"Princess, I know of your name. But, your patience must be tamed." Zecora chants.
"How did u know I was the princess?!?" It was until I saw the expression on Zecora's face that I realized I was yelling.
I gave Zecora a sad look. I'm sorry. I was trying to say but the words could not come out.
"Of course I know who u are. Your reputation is like a star. It is so quiet and kind. But still u have an absent mind."
Her rhymes were starting to get a little confusing.
"Zecora, I just want to go back home. In Canterlot!"
Zecora stares at the scenery out the window.
"I am afraid not, the rain is booming and u must not get caught."
I still could not comprehend but I knew one thing. I had to stay here for the night.
