Fashionista, The Future Knight, The Twin Tailed Genius, and The Animal Care Taker hit Canterlot part 4: Mystery solved. Enter Fang the sniper/Nack the weasel
We made our way to the underground and began to search for Nack or Fang. We made sure to stay away from a lot of the ponies here. In Canterlot underground you could find some of the lowest of the low here. Ruffians, thieves, and other unpleasant ones. Of course even I never thought I'd set foot here, but it was the only way to put an end to this case once and for all. I looked around trying to spy our little friend, but it was like trying to find a piece of fabric in a huge draw
Silver turns to shush Rarity by place his finger on her lips. "Rarity I love you, but you seriously need to stop especially when we are trying to stay hidden and in a place like this." Silver said spreading his arms out motioning around the area. The others agreed with Silver this time as they kept moving. Rarity 'hmph' as they kept walking. That's when they turned a corner and Tails spotted Fang and pushed the others back.
"Tails? What's wrong?" Trixie asked him, as she was confused by his action. Tails smirked as he locked his eyes on a purple weisel mercenary, who was walking through the crowd toward a small bar. After Fang entered the bar, Tails turned to the others as his grin became wider.
"Follow me." He said. The others then looked at each other as they approached the bar. Rarity then decided to do her Narration again as they approached the bar.
Apple's jumble. I heard about this place from a good friend of mine. If you wanted to find someone this would be the place to look for them. Tails had gone in with the rest of us following behind him. I entered last to cover their back if it's needed. As we entered, we stopped near the entrance, to take a better look on this place. There were lots of shady characters so we had to act like we were part of the crowd. As we blended in Tails got us all some drinks as we looked for our man of an hour. We spotted him near one of the table as he was sitting alone.
And now I saw him alive. He looks exactly like on Tails's computer, but much older. We decided to play it well.
End of Narration
Rarity had silenced herself as they turned to Fang. Silver, Tails, Trixie and Fluttershy tried to be careful with him, and kept a distance for Fang didn't suspect them. They approached a table that was on a corner of the bar and settled down around it by keeping their eyes on weisel who sat along the bar counter.
"Alright, there he is." Tails said quietly almost in whisper, "Speaking in once, I am not really helpful in exposure, because he knows me." He then glanced at Silver, "I'm afraid that you Silver is out of the game too."
Silver nodded, "I agree. Mobian hedgehog here in Canterlot underground is not an ordinaly thing." He agreed with Tails, before he glanced at Fang, "But what can stop me from attacking this guy right now?"
"We need to be sure, that he took the diamond with him, Silvy darling." Rarity answered Silver's question, "If we grab him too early, and give him to the police, he would hardly say about where the diamond is."
"Trixie agrees." Trixie agreed with her frowning, "Besides we may lose a larger fish if we try to grab him."
"You mean the Client. Exactly." Tails confirmed her words, "We need to proceed carefully." He said before all five turned their eyes at Fang, "Any ideas?"
Five was silent for a moment, when Rarity got an idea, "I can do it." She suggested, "I can go to him, to start a conversation.. I saw that he had already drank a second cup of drink, and he seems to be a talkative person."
"Are you sure?" Fluttershy asked worried, "He has guns. If he understands your intentions, he attacks you."
"I agree with Fluttershy, Rarity." Silver began to become worried for his girl, "Do not go on the rampage."
"Do not worry Darlings. I can handle this ruffian here. Wish me luck." She said, before she got up and turned her eyes on Fang. As she walked over Fang had a sip of his drink. He then turns to her and smirks.
"Hiya toots, you looking for something here?" He said his voice gruff and looking right at Rarity. She desperately thought of something as she didn't want him to get suspicious
"I…..just noticed you here and nothing more, how are you enjoying here in Canterlot?" She asked, trying to sweet talk with him.
"Hehe, this place ain't so bad, a bit snotty in some part but this place is great!" He said as he took another sip of his drink. She liked this as she then tried talking again.
"What do you also think of the museums here in Canterlot?" Rarity asked hoping to get something out of Fang. Fang smirked as he lowered his hat.
"Mmmm kind of dull for my tastes, but they do contain some rare valuables." He said as he lowered his hat and smirked at her. "Why do you ask?" He said to Rarity curiously. Rarity turned worried and a nervous grin flashed on her face as she didn't knew what to answer.
"Oh, I just asked you for no reason." She quickly came up with the answer, "It's Canterlot after all. Our capital is famous for its museums. Anyone who visits Canterlot must visit our museums at first." She said as she shots at him an innocent smile on her face. Fang raised his left eyebrow in question, but then he smirks at her, before he turned to her completely, and leaned his right elbow on the counter.
"Well I don't think you need to worry about that when you traveled here on business." He said. Rarity then smirks at him in response.
"You came here for business?" She asked him with her voice sounded flirtatiously. Fang nodded, before he turned back to his mug, still smirking and made another big sip of his drink.
"Yeah, sorta." He answered. "Though it's highly classified information, sweetie." He smiled as he lowered his hat. Rarity though knew she was gonna have to use her charm to make him talk.
"Mmm, that's very interesting." She went up to Fang and then place her hand on his shoulder and then puts two of her fingers down his cheek. "Are some sort of a secret agent?" She said as she moved her fingers up and booped his nose. Fang smirked at this, before he took another sip of his drink.
"No, girl." He replied, "I'm just doing some work, which is, well ... let's say that it is not entirely legitimate." He then removed her hand from his cheek, "You're not like the kind of girls who are interested in the guys outside the law. What brought you here?"
Rarity sat down on a chair next to the mercenary, still smiling flirtatiously, "Oh, this is the highest community is very boring. The girls like me sometimes lacking the extreme." She said as her voice was soft and very lovingly, "I decided to come here in search of thrills."
Fang could not help but laughed at her words, "Thrills." He said, before he finished his drink, and then he turned to Rarity, as his grin grew wider, "If you decided that I can give you the thrills, you caught me not at the right time." He then paid the bartender, and stood up, by placing his hand on his revolver, "I'm afraid to disappoint you baby, but as I said, I have things that I have to finish right now."
"Are you going? So fast?" Rarity said as her voice sounded plaintively, "And you're ready to leave me alone here?"
Fang shook his head, by being impressed by her perseverance, and then he moved very close to her, and bent over her left ear. Rarity gasped nervously because it was not what she expected. Nervously grinning, she looked at her friends who continued to stare at her. Silver, seeing as the polarity changed, clenched his fists, seeing as Fang moved to the offensive to his girlfriend. He gritted his teeth and frowned, and was about to rise from his chair. But Rarity just shook her head sharply, trying to stop it so it does not spoil the entire job. Tails, Fluttershy and Trixie noticed his behavior and magician put a hand on his shoulder to keep him quiet.
"Silver, don't do that." She asked him in a low voice, "Hold on a little bit. She almost got it."
"I will never stand when some mercenary stick to my girlfriend!" Silver growled through clenched teeth.
"Silver, No!" Tails told him, "He's got guns. If you attack him now, he may hurt her."
Meanwhile, Fang leaned over his left eye Rarity, grinning devilishly, "Don't worry, baby." He said quietly and ominously, "I always have a time for you and your friends who sits around the table in the right corner of the bar." Rarity's eyes got wide with horror when she realized that he understood her intentions. Then she felt like some elongated object rested against her stomach, and gasped softly. She looked down to see how Fang holds a gun at her stomach. She gasped in terror and looked into his eyes to see his menacing eyes and his clenched teeth bared.
"Don't move!" He demanded, "Maybe you know magic, but your magic will not be enough to stop a bullet!", Rarity began to tremble with fear. She had heard stories from Silver about this weapon, and knew what could happen with her.
"Sir, what are you doing?" Rarity asked with a trembling voice.
"So you came here to catch me? Mishandled wolf in sheep's clothing?" Fang said with a fierce and menacing tone in his voice.
"Sir, I don't understand what you are saying." Rarity lied, trying to defend herself, "Please, remove this thing from my stomach. I'm scared."
"Don't you dare lie to me!" Fang barked at her, "I saw you near the museum so I know who you are. You and all your buddies. Do you really thought I am so stupid, that forgot your face?"
Meanwhile, at the table, the guys saw how Fang revealed Rarity's intentions, and became horrified when he put a gun to her stomach. Especially Silver, whose fear increased significantly. He then abruptly stood up from the table, and was ready to rush to save her. He changed his mind when he saw Fang took out another gun and pointed at him, with weisel's head turned in his direction. Fang shook his head thus mentally saying to Silver, that now all the trumps in his hands. Much to Silver glared at him in response. He knew that even the use of his power was dangerous, because the pistol with the hammer cocked can shoot from any superfluous movement, so he froze, and his eyes locked on Fang, who practically took Rarity as a hostage.
Fang grinned, when he managed to turn the situation into in his favor, "So many familiar faces." He said, and then looked at Rarity, "Well, then, Miss Rarity. If you want to remain intact, and IF you don't want your boyfriend to be hurt, you have to do what I say. Don't even try to make any unnecessary movements, or use silly spells. I have a deal that I need to finish, and get a reward for my work, and then you can do whatever you want. I do not care what you do afterwards, I just want to get my money. We both don't need too much violence, right?"
"You won't get off so easily, Fang!" Rarity said sternly, and with a frown, "We will get you sooner or later!"
"I've heard it a thousand times my dear!" Fang said, grinning. That's when Trixie decided to pull a trick of her own and pulled her hat down to cloak her horn as she spoke.
"Alright…..alright calm down. Trixie believes we can make an agreement. So maybe if we let you go you'll let Trixie's friend go?" She asked while under her hat her horn was glowing. Fang had Rarity close and the pistol still pointed at her head.
"You take me for a fool? Lady I'm going to tell you I know that little fox friend of yours back there and I know of his little tricks so don't even try it." He said as the revolver was on Rarity's head. What he wasn't noticing was an aura surrounding Rarity. Trixie then smirked.
"Well you may know his tricks….but…." She looked at Rarity real quick and saw the aura had completely covered her and then smirked. "You don't know TRIXIE'S!" She yelled at him, before pushing Rarity away from Fang's grip, and levitating her back to them. Fang was shocked by this on since Rarity was a guarantee of a successful escape, but now he had to act quickly. He aimed on the company of friends and opened heavy fire from both revolvers, so Tails Trixie and overthrew the tables to create a small cover from the bullets. They ducked under the tables, and there Tails again activated his arm cannon. Silver, meanwhile, embraced Rarity, and looked at her body in search for any damage. Rarity though felt happy that he was worrying for her, but uncomfortable with the fact that it occurs in humans. She took his hand and looked into his eyes, smiling.
"Silvy, darling." She spoke, "It's fine. He did not harm me, but we need to stop him from getting away." Silver nodded as he tried to look up, but ducked to avoid the bullets he then noticed Trixie was behind the counter. Silver looked to her and then at Rarity.
"Rarity go to Trixie and stay hidden okay…." He asked. Rarity was worried and wanted to argue with him, but she then saw that Silver was being serious, "Listen. I know, that you could handle him on your own, but he has guns… and I'd rather not see you get shot by them. Please Rarity." Rarity then looked down for a sec and then pecked her boy on the cheek.
"Alright Silvy go get that ruffian." She said as she left to hide with Trixie. Tails witnessed it and looked to Fluttershy. Fluttershy knew what he wanted her to do.
"Flutters go I can handle this guy, but he has something that could give a really bad wounds." He said as he held her hand, "Go to the girls and keep yourself safe while we dealing with Fang." He then frowned, "And Don't! Come! Out! Please." Fluttershy nodded, before she hugged him tightly, thus wishing him luck. Tails hugged her back and patted her. After they separated, Tails stood up and made several shots at Fang so Fluttershy could run to the others. Fang jumped in the air dodging the shots as he focused his aim on Tails. Fluttershy dove to cover with Rarity and Trixie while Tails and Silver tried to attack him, but they were pinned. Each time he ran out they would launch and attack, but Fang was a quick one to reload so it was a stand off. After another series of shots, Fang jumped over the bar counter and ducked under cover to reload a guns. After he made a reload, he stood up again and aimed at his opponents. He opened a fire.
Tails and Silver ducked again, and glanced at each other by exchanging a hopeless looks on their faces, and then they glanced at the girls who was looking at them worrying.
"It seems that situation is not on their side!" Trixie stated, "They're not even have time to make an attack, when he starts shooting again and again."
"Oh my ..." Fluttershy whimpered, frightened, "But we can not do anything."
"If Twilight was here, we could teleport behind him and help the boys." Rarity suggested also feeling helpless. But Trixie made her eyes wide when she heard about teleportation, and smiled, "Hey, Trixie has a plan." She said, and then looked at the girls, "Gather around me." The girls looked at each other at first and then gathered around Trixie. Trixie then focused her magic on her, Rarity, and Fluttershy. They three then vanished; they then reappeared behind Fang but a little distant so they weren't spotted. When they looked around and saw they were near Fang Rarity then was able to get Silver and Tails attention when Fang was reloading. She motioned that they were gonna subdue him and Tails and Silver knew just what to do to distract Fang as they nodded. After that Tails raised his hands up.
"Alright, you won. Hold your fire!" He shouted.
Fang was surprised by this but he stopped the fire and stood up to see if it wasn't lie. He then saw Tails is standing in his full height and with both hands up, with a look of defeat on his face. Fang then grinned at him and pointed a gun on his side.
"And the second one?" He asked referring to Silver. Silver then stood up too with his hands over his head and glared at the mercenary. Fang laughed wickedly over them as he held them at gunpoint, and his face looked triumphant.
"Well, well, well." He said after he stopped laughing, "Look what we have here. Miles Tails Prower Sonic's lap dog and his hand-dog…" He then raised his right eyebrow at the fact they were surrendering so easily, "And they actually surrendering…. No, it's way too easy." He then turned to where the girls 'were' hiding and spoke. "You three come out right now." He called them out, but there was no answer. Instead, there was silence, that caught Fang into surprise. That's when he heard Rarity yelling at him.
"OVER HERE YOU RUFFIAN!" Her voice boomed behind his back, prompting him to wide his eyes in surprise and looking back over his shoulder. He then gasped and was ready to shoot them down, but before he could make it, Rarity kicked one of his guns out of his hand, and performed a roundhouse kick onto his stomach by knocking Fang on the floor. The gun landed where Fluttershy was, but the handle was pointed in her direction and the barrel at Fang. Fluttershy gasped by fixing her eyes on it and fell into trance not knowing what to do with this thing.
Meanwhile, Fang groaned in pain as he was lying on the floor, and holding his stomach with his left hand, while still having a gun in his right. He then opened his eyes and glanced at Rarity, who was staring at him down with a frown and her teeth bared.
"Don't you ever point a gun to lady! NEVER!" She said with an angry voice, but Fang was not scared of her words, and frowned deeper at herm before he pointed his second gun to her face.
"Try to force me, you bitch!" He snapped, and was ready to made another shot.
"STOP!" Fluttershy's screams sounded nearby, prompting him to turn to her, by being in shock. He saw yellow pony-girl staring at him with wide eyes and sweat rolling down on her face as she pointed a gun on his direction.
"Don't move!" Fluttershy said again, as her hands was trembling with fear. She was shaking with fear, so much that it was obvious to everyone. Silver and Tails saw it and rushed to their girlfriends to help them. Silver knocked out a second gun from Fang's hands, what brought him out of his trance. He then grabbed him by the collar and lifted off the ground, by fiercely staring into his eyes. Tails meanwhile approached to Fluttershy closer and took her hands gently. Only now he could feel how scared she was. Because of her trembles, the gun was shakes from side to side.
"Hey, Fluttershy…" Tails spole softly, "Put the gun down. There's no reason to hold it anymore." He suggested. Fluttershy agreed as she bent down and placed the gun on the floor not wanting to go anywhere near it again. They then walked over to the others
Meanwhile, Silver placed Fang down on the ground and punched him on the face in avange for threatening his girlfriend. The weisel hit the wall groaning in pain, before he lifted his eyes to his attackers and glared at ji,m, understanding now that he failed his mission. Tails then spoke as his blaster was pointed at Fang as they all surrounded and cornered him.
"It's over Fang." He said. Fang at first gritted his teeth at the five, but then turned to a window to see two other Mobians with one holding an explosive. He then smirked as he looked at Tails.
"Sorry to disappoint ya mate, but I'm afraid it ain't over." He said. That's when something landed on the ground and they all turned to it. It was a black sphere with a fuse that's when they all went wide eyed. That's when it went off and smoke was all over the place. They were all coughing while Fang made his escape. Tails and the others turned to him.
"Nice try boys and girls. Better luck next time." He said as he lowered his hat and then left with the other two. Tails then gritted his teeth and grunted.
"UGH! GOT AWAY… AGAIN!" He shouted in anger. Silver then grabbed his shoulder.
"Maybe, but I got the feeling we'll be seeing him real soon." He said. Fluttershy, Rarity, and Trixie came up to them with Fang's bag, he dropped during the firefight. The guys looked at the girls and smiled
"Well shall we return what was stolen?" Rarity asked by being proud. The others said nothing in response and just nodded in agreement, before they left the bar and kept their way toward the museum.
Raritys Final Narration
As we left we felt quite proud of ourselves for figuring out the case and getting the diamond back. Its unfortunate that he got away and we still didn't know who that client was, who gave a job to this ruffian. But at least we got the diamond and we can return it back to where it should be.
Soon we reached the museum. As we was near the main entrance, we saw the Manager who was probably awaits for us. We then showed him the bag as he took the diamond and showed us his gratitude. While the others were getting dressed I found myself wondering about Fang. Where did he go? Who hired him? And the most important question where would he strike next? These are questions that have not yet had a response. For now though I better rest until the next mystery.
Rarity had came out of the room as the others were already dressed in their clothes they wore before all this started. They went out in a street again by walking on the evening Canterlot streets with a smiles on their faces, and enjoying each other company. Though they looked exhausted.
"Well that was fun, but I'm completely bushed after that." Tails said. The others nodded, but Rarity smiled as she got another idea.
"Oh, do not worry, dear Tails." She said, "I have an idea that will help us to let off steam." She then gave a big smile. That's when they arrived at a hot springs place and went in and the pony at the front desk turned to them and smiled. She had a light blue fur coat and a pink mane and tail with a white headband and was wearing a nice white coat with white pants.
"Well hello Rarity." She said to her friend.
"Hello Alotus I'm here for the appointment I scheduled for today." She said. Alotus smiled at her friend as she went to the door.
"Of course. You know you do me and my sister a big honor when you visit the spa or the hot springs here." She said as they walked through the building.
"Well you and your sister provide the best relaxation in all of Equestria and it's nice to know how you feel about my visits darling." She said as they reached the locker rooms
"Well you five are the last ones for today so please stay as long as you'd like and enjoy yourselves." She said as she left them. Tails and Silver went into the men's locker room while Rarity, Fluttershy, and Trixie went into the women's locker room. The guys had already taken off their clothes back at the museum before going to the springs. They slipped off their shoes and gloves then grabbed a towel and went into the springs. Meanwhile the girls were stripping off their outfits and placed them in their lockers once all their clothes were off they each grabbed a towel and entered the springs. The guys had gone into a separate spring and we're relaxing. The girls had made it to the springs and let the towels slip off. They entered the spring with Rarity giving off a satisfying moan as well as the other two. Trixie then sighed in relaxation.
"Oh…*sigh*... Trixie so enjoys the hot springs. They make Trixie feel like the world's troubles are far away." She said as she let herself sink in a little further into the spring. Fluttershy giggled over Trixie's behaviour before she closed her eyes too and made a deep and long sigh of relaxation.
"Mmmmmmm…" She moaned, "You're so right, Trix." She said before she opened her eyes and turned to Rarity, "Rarity, it was such a great idea to go here after everything that's happened." She said with a smile. Rarity smiled back.
"Oh it was my pleasure darling. After all I know what my friends need when it comes to this type of situation." She said with her voice sounded relaxed and satisfied. She then sighed again and closed her eyes, by feeling her body relaxing more and more. After that she opened her eyes again, as she thought about Silver and how he was worrying for her during this mission. She always loved the fact that he cared for her more then himself. Her smile suddenly turned from relaxed drowsy smile to a naughty grin. She had another idea that she knew would please her love so much. She then decided to first tell Fluttershy. She turned to her pegasi friend and placed her hand on her shoulder. Fluttershy opened her eyes and looked at Rarity smiling as well.
"Yes, Rarity?" She spoke leisurely.
"Fluttershy, I think that to relax in solitude is a little out of our style." Rarity said with a playful tone in her voice. Fluttershy looked at her with her eyebrow lifting up.
"What… do you mean by that?" She asked. Rarity then moved to her ear and whispered something to her. As she whispered Fluttershy went wide eyed and blushed madly at it she then scooted away from her. "Y-Y-You really want to do that?" She asked Rarity
"Oh, come now darling…" Rarity said, "The boys probably are getting bored without us. Lets just make things interesting for them." She said as smiled, but Fluttershy looked away and squinted down like she had shrunk.
"I-I-I don't know…. The last time I did that Miles got spooked and almost flipped. What if something goes wrong like the last time I surprised him. He hates it when I do that without warning." She said with a worrying tone in her voice. Rarity smiled and spoke softly at her.
"Hey, he's your boyfriend. I think he will be happy to see you. Besides, surely he is now relaxed, and just wouldn't be able to react as he usually does." She said trying to calm her down. Fluttershy pondered her offer for some time before she sighed and smiled while still blushing. She turned back to Rarity, and she nodded in agreement
"Okay, I'm with you." She said with a sound of confidence in her voice. Rarity nodded, and then they looked at Trixie.
"Hey, Trixie." Rarity called her. Trixie leisurely and reluctantly opened her eyes, and then looked at Rarity, with half of her face under water.
"Boulle-boulle-boulle?" She asked. Much to Rarity made her eyes wide in question as she didn't understand what Trixie said. But then she just shook her head and smirked.
"We need to ask you something." She said.
Meanwhile the guys were laying in the Spring as Silver had his eyes closed, but Tails had his open with questions going through his mind. Silver took one quick look with one eye and then closed it.
"Tails you really need to relax dude." He said. Tails just kept looking on.
"I'm sorry Silver I can't help it. I keep thinking about Fang. I mean the dude went missing so long ago and now he suddenly appears like a ghost. Where has he been and why does he appear now?... *Sigh*... it's just hard to relax when there are so many questions that needs answers." He said. Silver then smirked.
"Tails look I'm worried about this as well, but for now we need to rest. So come on just relax, okay?" He said as he took his mug of cider and raised it up in front of him. Tails then gave up and took his own mug of cider. They clinked their mugs before they made a big gulp. After that they placed a mugs beside them and glanced to their right by smirking friendly.
"So, how is it going?" Silver asked the empty space, "Do you like it here?"
Before a response came out, there were sparkles and then bright flash behind them. The two made their eyes wide, before turning toward the flash. But just to open their mouths widely. They saw Rarity, Fluttershy and Trixie, who was standing right next to their hot spring. And they were without their towels. Rarity was grinning them, standing in the pose of a supermodel. Trixie also had no complex is in general. And only Fluttershy covered herself with hands and smiled awkwardly, with her deep red face.
"Hi boys." Rarity said flirtatiously. Guys are still in shock from the sight of that girl gave them, and then they looked at each other, in an effort to accept what they see right now. Of course they see their girls than their mother gave birth every day, but now they felt that the time is not appropriate. Looking at their girls back, they nodded to them slowly.
"Hi, girls." Tails said, slowly and awkwardly with his nose starting to turn red. Rarity and Trixie chuckled over their behavior before the magician spoke.
"Trixie and her friends thought that maybe you can find another room for us." She said flirtatiously as well. Tails and Silver grinned nervously, and then scratched their heads as they laughed awkwardly.
"Well, girls." Silver said, "You see ..."
"Now is not the right time." Tails continued his thought.
"Why?" Rarity asked, still sounded flirtatiously, "Do are you really going to leave three helpless girls to freeze?"
Silver, yet knew all too well his girlfriend to buy into this trick, "You? Helpless?" He asked with a sarcastic tone in his voice, "Pfft ... Very funny, Rarity."
Rarity's grin turned wider, "I'll take that as a yes." She said as went into the spring and approached Silver. She then spoke as she approached him "Sit yourselves comfortable, girls." Rarity then sat down next to Silver and then nuzzled to him, by wrapping his neck with both arms, and moaned in pleasure by closing her eyes as they were enjoying the spring. Silver smiled gently at her, and forgot everything when she was beside him. He gladly returned a hug as he wrapped her around her waist, and legs, and closed his eyes, too.
Fluttershy sat next to Tails, still embarrassed and smiling shyly. She continued to hide behind hands and wings. Tails just looked at her with a blank look on his face, not taking his eyes off her.
"Um, Miles. I'm sorry." She said shyly, "I know you asked me not to do that anymore ..." Tails suddenly came to his senses, and smiled at her, "But ... I thought that you want to relax and decided that this would be a good idea."
"Fluttershy, please." Tails said softly, "You don't need to think about it." He winked at her, "At first I always react like that, but I know you do it for me and you feel just as embarrassed, but it's alright cause it doesn't change anything." Fluttershy smiled happily when he said this, and then Tails extended his hand toward her, "Come here." He called her. Fluttershy then entered the Spring and came close to him, and almost sat on his knees. She tossed her legs on his knees, and clung to him as tightly as possible, clasping both of her arms around his neck. Tails hugged her around the back and caressed her wings. They exchanged a tender kiss, during which Tails embraced Fluttershy so tightly that she has no other choice but to sat on his knees. After they finished their kiss, they looked into each other's eyes and exchanged an affectionate smile.
Trixie looked at them with a smile on her face, at the same time feeling happy for her friends, and envy them, for obvious reasons.
"This picture is quite nice." A low man's voice sounded next to them, causing the girls to open their eyes wide, "But I would advise you to wait a little before you start the fun."
The girls gasped in fright and clung to their guys, as they began to ran their eyes around the room to find out who dared to interrupt their fun. Trixie quickly swam to Rarity and Silver and hugged them tightly, hoping to hide with Rarity behind Silver.
"Trixie." Silver groaned in surprise.
"What was it?" Fluttershy asked frightened as she hid behind her guy trying to cover herself, "Was it a ghost?"
"Well I'm not sure what it was but it was very close." Rarity said with a trembling voice, frightened as well as she grabbed Silvers arm.
"Trixie doesn't like it. Trixie doesn't know any spells against ghosts." Trixie stated also in a state of fright while hiding behind Silver as well.
Tails and Silver sighed as they flashed a grin, and then they looked in front of as Silver spoke.
"Man, don't be so mean. You're scaring the girls." Silver said sarcastically. The girls found themselves puzzled, and then they looked at Silver.
"Silver, who are you talking to?" Rarity wondered.
"Come on out there's no need to hide." Tails said. Fluttershy was about to ask Tails the same thing, but that's when they got their answer as they looked forward inadvertently, Rarity, Fluttershy, and Trixie gasped in embarrassment and blushing madly. Right in front of them, some kind of purple athletic guy with a big horn on its forehead appeared. Obviously, he was mobian, but they didn't see him before. The guys aside from the mystery Mobian then laughed awkwardly while Fluttershy and Rarity clung to their boyfriends more hard, indirectly hiding behind them, and Trixie moved from Silver and covered her breasts with her hands since the springs didn't conceal them fully.
"Hello, sir." They said at the same time, "We didn't see you here." Trixie said, but Mobian simply chuckled sarcastically.
"Oh, really?" He asked, as if laughing at them. Silver then sighed, before introducing him.
"Girls, allow me to introduce you... This is Espio the Chameleon." He said wearily, "He is our old friend from Mobius. He's a ninja, detective, a master of martial arts and camouflage."
"Nice to meet you, ladies." Espio greeted with girls, grinning, and bowing to them "Though in a frank and open atmosphere."
"It's nice to meet you too, sir." Rarity said while blushing in embarrassment, "Boys. Why didn't you tell us that you had a guest?"
"We warned you that now is not the time Rarity and this is what we meant." Tails said with a skeptical tone. Fluttershy then looked at him.
"But Miles. You didn't say that you were with a friend." Fluttershy noticed. But Tails looked at her, as he smiled and ran his fingers through her mane.
"And how do you think we were suppose to say it? Sorry girls, but you did come here out of nowhere so you can't exactly blame us." He said as he lifted one arm up and shrugged. Espio just smirked as he spoke.
"Forgive the rude interruption I wasn't trying to frighten anyone here I was merely practicing my ninja skills for a bit." He said as he sat down by closing his eyes and got into a meditating stance. Trixie looked at him and then spoke.
"Trixie is confused. Why is he like that and how long has he been here? Was it the whole time?"
"He's been here even before us, Trix." Silver stated, before he turned to Espio, "Hey, dude. Can you break your meditation for a moment and to tell your story. Like what your doing here by yourself?" He asked him with a cocky tone in his voice. Espio then sighed and opened his eyes by looking at him with a frown. He then crossed his arms and spoke.
"Well, let's say that I was here at the wrong time." He said with his voice sounded irritated, "You see I was planning to arrive for Sonic and Twilight's wedding in fact me and my friends Vector and Charmy were going to come, we were going to arrive a few days earlier, but got called in for a case. Apparently there have been a number of heists around Equestria by an unknown band. We agreed to look into it, but we were having trouble tracking the thieves down. It was then two days ago Vector had a suspicion of where the thieves would strike next and the three of us separated to keep an eye on these area's mine was Ponyville so I was able to come, but had to stay hidden and watch for the thief." Fluttershy then spoke with a curious tone.
"But if you were there why didn't you come to the wedding?" She asked. That's when Espio sighed and crossed his arms and looked away.
"I…..may have lost track of time and when I realized it…..well it was kind of too late. I was going to try and go to see you, but Vector needed me to return saying we had a lead on the thieves. So I left. We then discovered the thieves next hit was Canterlot and Vector asked me to go in alone, but when I find him I find out I wasn't alone in tracking him down." He said as he looked at them. The five found themselves confused by Espio's words, since they thought that he was talking about Fang.
"By any chance was your mystery thieves the hooligan gang?" Tails asked. Espio nodded to him. This of course answered some things Tails was curious about. "So then the two that were helping him escape must've been his lackeys. Bean and Bark. That would explain the explosives since Bean had an act for them." Rarity then looked towards Tails
"Who are you talking about Tails?" She asked. Tails looked up to Rarity.
"See Fang is the leader of a gang called the Hooligans. There were two others. Bean the Dynamite; he has a thing for explosives and Bark the Polar Bear; he's the muscle of the team. As I explained those three have caused a whole lot of trouble for us in the past. I'm just glad we ran them out when we did." He said as he thought about how they arrived that's when Fluttershy nudged at him to get his attention.
"Miles do you think we should be worried about them being out there?" She asked as she looked at him worried. Tails just looked at his girl and then moved his hand from her mane and brought her head to his.
"They have guns, they have explosives and they're back after twelve years of the absence." He said with a disturbing tone in his voice, "So yeah, we should be worried about them …"He finished saying as he became sad slightly. Fluttershy wanted to comfort him, but that's when Tails brought her so close to him that all she could see were his amazing blue ocean eyes as they glew. "...but right now all I want to do is be with you." He said. Fluttershy smiled and blushed she almost teared up. Tails of course didn't mind as he brought her in for another kiss and moved his hand down her mane and the other going down her spine. Fluttershy just kissed back as she closed her eyes and rested herself on Tails. Silver then looked and motioned to Espio.
"Come on dude what are you waiting for? Come on in." He motioned him. Espio then sighed a little before going into the spring.
"Well I don't want to be rude Silver. After all they aren't exactly…..properly dressed you could call it." This of course made Rarity and Trixie blush madly, but Trixie then spoke.
"Trixie thinks you should. It sounds like you went through a lot and could use some friends to talk to." She said looking away shyily. He heard her and then spoke.
"Very well if you wish for me to stay I'll stay." He goes into the spring, and relaxes as Trixie gets close to him and massages his shoulder. As she did Espio smirks. "Thank you my friend." He said. Trixie smiles.
"Don't worry. So you're training to be a ninja?" Trixie asked trying to start a conversation with him. Espio spoke.
"Yes I am. I practice constantly and meditate to calm my mind. A ninja must always be ready for anything and keep a calm mind. I assume you have your own talents." He asked. Trixie at first blushed because she thought he saw her cutie mark, but shook it off and spoke.
"Yes Trixie is know as the Great And Powerful Trixie. Trixie travels from town to town showing tricks all across Equestria." She said. Espio then grabs her hands and moves them away from his shoulders. He then scoots over a little so he could look at her.
"Really? Interesting please tell me more about your shows." He said. Trixie blushed and smiled. No one ever really asked her about her previous shows before so she wasn't exactly expecting that question. She then spoke.
"Well I guess I could tell you about my recent one in Manehattan…" She said. Espio and her got involved in a conversation as they talked about either adventures or some memories. Silver looked on and smiled while Rarity rested on his chest as she scratched his chest fur. The six then forgot all about their predicament. During one point though Trixie had gotten to what had happened between her and Twilight the second time she came to Ponyville. This of course interested Espio.
"So you lost your wits and relied upon that necklace which took control of you and Twilight had to trick you into taking it off?" He asked her. Trixie then looked away and in shame.
"Yes….*sigh* Trixie felt embarrassed and ashamed and felt Twilight Sparkle ruined Trixie's life, but Trixie then realized after she helped me that Trixie was wrong. After that Trixie decided to try and do good and decide to quit the lies. Every since then everypony seemed to have forgiven Trixie, but Trixie can never forget what Trixie has done. Trixie turned Ponyville into Trixie's own personal play town. Trixie is very ashamed." She said. Espio smirked.
"Do you always announce yourself in the third person?" He asked Trixie then looked at him and blushed as she spoke.
"Y-Y-Yes is that a problem?" She asked.
"No its not I was just curious, but you shouldn't feel bad about what happened. The damage is done. We can't change what happened back then, but we can make the future a better place for all us right." He said as he was meditating. Trixie then looked at him and smiled.
"Right." She said. Espio then opened his eyes and looked at Trixie.
"Thank you for sharing that with me. I'm grateful to have heard this." He said as he bowed to her. Trixie smiled as she approached him.
"Trixie is grateful that you listened…. And thankful for the advice you gave to Trixie." She said. Trixie then hugged him unexpectedly. This of course caught him off guard for two reasons. One because she did it unexpectedly and two because she wasn't wearing any clothes. For a few seconds he didn't know what to do, but then just relaxed and hugged back. Trixie's body however was touching his, but she didn't care as she hugged him she felt something she hadn't felt before. She felt safe around him and felt like what she was doing was right and that's when she knew what she was feeling for him. Of course she felt to embarrassed to say anything so she spoke.
"Um Espio if you want Trixie would like to invite you to her next showcase. If you're interested." She said as she held her hand behind her head. Espio smirked and spoke.
"Sure I would be interested in coming. Vector said I should take a little break from my detective work." Espio said. Trixie smiled.
"Thank you. Trust me you will have a lot of fun and be amazed by Trixie. Trixie Guarantees it." She said with confidence. Espio smirked and then went back to meditating. That's when Trixie fell asleep thanks to the spring and rested on his shoulder. Espio smirked as he just meditated, but at one point Trixie had almost slipped into the spring however Espio prevented that by laying her on his chest so she wouldn't fall in the water and she smiled. While unknown to the two the others took a peeked at them and all smiled as they rested in the springs.
