“I guess this is your stop,” said Twilight. “Thank you so much for helping me plan Spike’s birthday party. I don’t think he’s ever had a birthday that wild before.”
“No problem!” I said. “You know me! I love to make ponies smile, and dragons, and any other creatures really!”
Twilight laughed. “Thanks, Pinkie. I’ll see you later.”
As Twilight walked away, I walked through the store up the stairs to my room. Then I collapsed onto my couch in exhaustion. I was already dozing off when Gummy came over and licked my hoof.
“Making ponies smile is harder than it looks, Gummy,” I chuckled. “It’s all right. I’m all right. It’s just … I wonder if I made the right choice.”
I dozed and caught my breath for a few more, lazy minutes, then heavily stood up and walked over to my writing table, with my paper and pens.
Dear Mom and Dad, I wrote.
How’re things at home? Things are great over here, as always. One of my best friend’s dragon had a birthday today, and I had a blast partying with them all day. You would not believe how tired I am right now!
I want you to know that I still think about you and the sisters every day. I wish you could be here, but I understand, you have different lives to lead.
I just want you to know, I miss you very much.
I hope you’re smiling every day.
Love, Pinkie Pie
“Don’t worry, Gummy,” I said as I finished the letter. “They’ll write back one of these days. I know it.” I sat back in my chair and sighed. “Or at least, I hope it …”
A sad look into Pinkie’s relationship with her family. This was very interesting, and I liked the use of Gummy to help explain things while not breaking character. It’s interesting how she seems to be wondering about her choice to leave home and live in Ponyville. Hopefully she doesn’t regret it. Well done!
