|“Ugh… I hope this goes well…” she grumbled under her breath, the pale bat annoyed by the early morning sun as she worked her way on to the train car. What a day she had ahead of her, some big date! She'd never been on a date before, not a real one at least, but with the Hearts & Hooves day sign up, she was ready to go! That is, if she could have gotten a bit more sleep.|
“Do ponies always get up this early…” she thought out loud, letting out a large yawn as she searched the seats for a reservation sign, passing by couples headed to who knows where. They all looked happy, rosy couples ready for a good time. That’s what she hoped for, someone who was fun and genuinely nice, maybe they would make a special connection that would spark a fantastical relationship for years to come! Oh, how she could dream…
She crossed through to another car, the one she entered not having her seat. This one seemed like the right car, ponies unsure of themselves, sitting with those that look unfamiliar to each other… and some signs stating who sat where, little folded card stock it seemed, printed with the text “Reserved for [Insert initials here]” Seemed… inefficient, but it looked like most everyone found where they had to sit, barring a few empty benches, one of them being her place of residence.
“Reserved for D.B… Reserved for V.S… Looks about right.” She thought aloud once more, “But no V.S. around? …” she looked for someone who would fit the bill, but that wouldn’t really do anything when she didn’t know anyone to begin with, so she picked up her sign and sat next to the window, waiting for her companion.
“I wonder what they’re like…” She thought to herself with a yawn. “Maybe they’re short like me… probably not… maybe… Probably have some really cool job that I can’t relate to… or maybe they just relax? … I can’t wait… to meet them…” she shut her eyes for a bit of a rest. “I probably shouldn’t get my hopes up… “ she let out a littler yawn. “But a girl can dream… I hope they... don't mind if... I rest my eyes...” finally drifting off for a little nap.
