Fluttershy was on her way to the market to pick up supplies for her animal friends. She was running low on food for them and it was time to stock up again. However, the pony got distracted by a new bird friend whom she followed to the square instead of the market. She had been talking to him for quite some time now and hadn't realized how long she had wasted in the process.
"Oh, I bet that wasn't very fun at all." The young mare answered her friend. He chirped with a sad tone to his voice. "I am glad things worked out for you." Fluttershy giggled. A another pony walked by with a bag of groceries, sparking her memory. "Oh! The food! I'm sorry but I really need to be going." She bowed a good bye before hurrying toward the market.
In her rush, the shy pony ended up colliding with somepony else. The incident caused her to fall on the ground. "O-oh, dear! I-I'm sorry. I d-didn't mean to. Are you okay?" She asked as she pushed herself off the ground.
Oh what a day for errands, in a not-so-new place that he'd never feel at home in. Not that Micro really felt at home anywhere. The pegasus was returning from his most recent stormwork and had decided that his progress on the rather lengthy journey merited him getting a snack, so he made a pit stop at the nearest town. After loudly questioning some confused locals, he gleaned that this was Ponyville, a town known for its delicious apples.
"I'll just be the judge of that." Micro had thought to himself, and off he went in search of the market, only to find himself completely and hopelessly lost. Too terrified to ask for directions and too stubborn to listen even if they were offered, he found himself on a side path, the scent of apples growing stronger. He had to be close, then.
Picking up his pace, Micro popped out of a side road at a low glide, eyes closed as he focused on sniffing his way to the promised fruit - only to be knocked from the air and to the ground, landing with an undignified squeak on his back. Micro lay there for a moment, stunned, then shook his head and popped back up to his feet.
There was the culprit - a youngish pony, a pegasus, looking anxious and a bit ruffled as she straightened herself out. Micro huffed and stood up to his full height - which still wasn't nearly as tall as the other pony, or as intimidating as he'd hoped - and scowled.
"Okay? You just knocked me over! You could try to watch where you're going, you know. Yes, I'm okay, but what if i wasn't? What if you'd banged my head, or if I'd been eating and I choked, or--" a loud growl from his stomach cut the tirade short. Micro glanced down, then looked back at the other pony. "What if I had just figured out where the market is, and you just knocked that knowledge out of my brain?"

Her ears lowered as the other pony yelled at her. "I-I'm r-really s-sorry." She stammered and backed away. "I d-didn't mean to. R-really." Fluttershy's eyes zipped sideways to the ground before looking back at him when his stomach growled. "The market? It's that w-way." The young pony pointed in the direction she was headed. Hoping that his anger would lift if she did.
The angry frown on his face softened at the other pegasus's reaction to his rage. Now that he thought about it, there really was no way she could have seen him coming, not when he darted out of a blind corner like that. He shook his head a bit and adjusted his wings.
"Thank you," he replied, turning around with an almost military sharpness. She had looked so upset when he'd snapped at her like that. She hadn't done anything, and she did apologize...
Micro had only gone a couple steps when he paused and turned his head back over his shoulder. He took a deep breath and closed his eyes for a second, then lowered his ears slightly. "I'm sorry for yelling at you," he apologized, his voice hitching slightly as he squirted the words out. There was a pause and another dramatic inhale before he continued.
"I'm still not really sure where to go, or what's good to eat here. Maybe you can help a pony out?"
