|It had been a while since she found herself here. On the street corner, in the dark of night, the only light source a dimly lit streetlamp. It probably gave some ponies the wrong kind of idea. She leaned against her saddlebags, stamped with her name sakes symbol, looking into her traveling hat, a hat perfect for the traveling bat of today, that she had tossed haphazardly on the street earlier in the night. No bits... but she didn't have a care in the world. |
Until her tummy provided her with a grim reminder that hunger was setting in. "Bummer..." she let out under her breath as she searched through her saddlebags. "Applecore... chocolate coin..." she unwrapped it and tossed it in her maw, her fangs ready for the chocolatey splendor, "mmmm... tasty... fangpaste, no... that isn't edible... orange peel... and '1001 Annoying Bat Puns, and How Your Species Should React'." Well, there was nothing else to eat now so she looked up and down the street. There were only a few ponies still out and about tonight, which wasn't unreasonable, not being a bat pony colony. A couple looking like they were coming back for the hhhhhottest of dates, some ponies who were just a bit tipsy, and a few of those last minute shoppers who always show up right when a store is about to close for the night, and then take forever to leave, yeah... that last guy was definitely that.
She released an audible sigh into the chilled night air, her breath expanding into the marketplace as she tapped her hooves on the rough ground.
"Bum... buh bum... buh... buh bum..."
"♪♫ It's not unusual to be loved by anyone~ It's not unusual to have fun with anyone~ but when I see you hanging about with anyone! It's not unusual~ to see me cry, oh I wanna' die... ♫♪"
She sang into the darkness, hoping that it would be her meal ticket for the night... and if not, well, then she would have at least enjoyed herself.
