Fluttershy’s eyes were red. ‘Its 1 AM we’re trying to sleep.”
Zephyr scratched his head in embarassment. “Whoops.”
“Have you been up all night, Zephyr? I thought only Twilight did that.” Fluttershy with some laughter.
Zephyr laughed too, “Well I guess I’m just so giddy about what will happen! I know I can conquer Cloudsdale and all of Equestria now! It’s just so great!”
Fluttershy just smiled at her little brother’s excitement. Even if most knew her brother as a lazy bum, she knows he’s more then. He has a lot of energy and excitement and curiosity about the world. He would always check out as a colt all the manes he saw. And even touch them.
Admittedly got him in some trouble especially when he touched Hoops’s mane. Let’s just say Fluttershy and Zephyr were running like never before. Thank goodness Rainbow just so happened to be there.
But when Fluttershy was still young, Zephyr gave her joy and hope.
“I’m so proud of you Zephyr, you’ve grown so much in such a short amount of time.” She said with happy tears.
Zephyr stopped and paused his shouting and for a bit. “Thanks.”
Fluttershy then noticed he was looking at the ground. Was there something wrong?
“Zephyr? Is there something wrong?”
“Pfft what do you mean it’s fine! Like I said this is the best thing since I first had canned tofu!”
“Zephyr” Fluttershy said firmly.
Zephyr looked down again. “It’s just… it took so long. I just wish I had done all this earlier.”
Zephyr was looked away from Fluttershy.
“All this time, I was just a big joke of a pegasus. Just being lazy, dissappoiting my folks, just being nothing.”
“That doesn’t matter anymore!” Fluttershy tried to reassure him. “You’re a new stallion now…”
“Only because I had help from others. Look at you sis, you were always brave and kind and never gave up on things. I just failed at everything though. I wish I would have done better”
