Normally, Time Turner would have been rather excited about what was about to happen. He loved adventuring and he loved meeting new ponies, and the Hearts & Hooves Day event seemed the perfect combination of both. Yet, as he stood on the boardwalk and leaning over the railing to look at the beach, he felt a little sad about it. Last year’s event had been absolutely wonderful, and he had actually though that him and Applejack would have been together a little bit longer. Unfortunately, autumn and apple and cider season came, and he had gotten called away to help with some historical archiving up in the Crystal Empire. With being away as long they did, they had come to a mutual agreement that it would be okay if they found another pony.
In otherwords, he was bummed out because he still kind of wanted Applejack back. Unfortunately it seemed that wasn’t going to be the case. So, instead, he figured he’d try this event again in hopes of being able to move on. The caramel apple booth yelling loudly about apples at the moment was not exactly helping the mood.
Pulling out the card, he looked over the name again: Lotus Blossom. He recognized the name and could even put a face to it. She was the co-owner of the Ponyville spa with her sister, Aloe. From what few interactions he had with her she seemed nice enough, and she was really well groomed. That, however, was about the most he knew of her. So at least there was some air of mystery in who he was getting. As long as he tried to be fair and not make too many comparisons to Applejack, like how she usually always some kind of smidge of dirt on her somewhere, he would be fine.
For now, however, he decided to make his way a bit closer to the entrance to the boardwalk. Mostly to try and get away from the caramel apple salespony, but he also figured it’d be easier for Lotus to see him if he was already at the entrance area to meet her. Until then, he figured he’d fidget around with his tie a little bit to make sure it was in good shape.
