第四章

 

第二天早上,当飞板璐睁开眼睛发现自己躺在她自己家床上的时候,她一时还认为自己在做梦。她跳下床向厨房走去,当她冲进走廊的时候,她听到了一声令马毛骨悚然的尖叫声。

“哦,看在大公主的份上!”一只陆马边叫边捡起了刚刚掉地上的一篮子衣服。“你怎么在这,飞板璐?我还以为你在你新朋友家过夜呢?”所以看来这不是梦。

飞板璐跟小萍花‘吵了一架’后又被她曾经在她噩梦里出现的老马吓跑了,这可真是‘太棒了’!

“嘿,霍乐迪姑姑,”飞板璐闷闷不乐道,“我...感觉不太好,所以我就回家了。” 霍乐迪姑姑忧心忡忡地看着飞板璐,显然飞板璐不怎么想说发生了什么;她也没有继续问飞板璐怎么回事,霍乐迪姑姑总是会等飞板璐认为自己能说的时候再问她。

“好吧,先去厨房吧。洛芙蹄阿姨已经在里面了,我马上给你做早餐。”

飞板璐点点头,走进了厨房。洛芙蹄阿姨----那只健壮的飞马正在厨房里铲下一盘鸡蛋,她抬起头惊讶地看着飞板璐。

洛芙蹄阿姨道:“嘿,小懒虫!回来得这么快啊?”

“我昨晚回来的!没什么大不了的!”飞板璐说得比自己想的还要坚决,洛芙蹄拱起了眉毛。与霍乐迪姑姑不同的是,洛芙蹄阿姨不刨根问底是不会罢休的。这时霍乐迪姑姑快步走进了厨房,吻了吻洛芙蹄阿姨的额头。

“亲爱的,让我们先给飞板璐做些早餐,之后你再慢慢问她。”飞板璐叹了一口气。霍乐迪姑姑是她爸爸的姐姐,通常她父母不在家的时候大部分时间就跟她和洛芙蹄阿姨住在一起。与她父母不同,她们(霍乐迪姑姑和洛芙蹄阿姨)经常对飞板璐的生活的各种事情都很感兴趣。通常她们关心是一件好事,但在今天早上她希望她们能不关心(昨晚发生的)那些事情。飞板璐坐在厨房的桌子旁,洛芙蹄阿姨正带着怀疑的目光看着她,而一阵敲门声把飞板璐从洛芙蹄阿姨的视线中带了出来。

“我去开!”飞板璐边说边跳了起来冲向门口。她打开门看到小萍花、甜贝儿、莉月和珀月正站在门前,她们都在以不同程度关心的目光看着她。

飞板璐道:“哦,嘿,各位。”她不知道该说什么好。

“嘿,”小萍花同样有些不舒坦地应道,“我们只想确保你没事,珀月告诉我们你昨晚急匆匆地离开了。”飞板璐看着珀月,她为什么没有告诉她们楼梯上出现的幽灵般的老马呢?

“嗯,我当然没事...我只是看到了那只老马从楼梯上向我走来,我还能怎么办?”而小马们都疑惑地互相看了一眼。

珀月转头来看了看飞板璐,解释道:“楼梯上没有小马,我们在厨房的时候,你忽然跑进了门厅,之后就冲出了房子。”

“啥,不!我看见她了!”飞板璐坚持道,“她就真的站在楼梯上!在找她的锈马掌!”飞板璐不敢相信珀月竟然在撒谎!

“好吧,”小萍花开始说道:“也许你看到那只老马是因为我提醒你之前是有多么害怕她。”她看起来还想多说几句,但飞板璐没有给她机会。

“你能不能别提了!”飞板璐气愤地叫道,“我不需要你告诉所有小马你认为我是胆小鬼!”

小萍花回道:“我不是那个意思!”

飞板璐说道:“所以你的意思是你不相信我是吧。”

甜贝儿开始说道:“好吧,如果珀月什么也没看见的话----”

飞板璐接着问道:“哦,那你现在是相信珀月了?”

珀月看着其它小马问道:“这是什么意思?”

“没什么,”小萍花转向飞板璐说道:“好吧,那你觉得你昨晚看到什么了?”

飞板璐说道:“昨晚我确实看到了,那只老马。”

莉月问道:“但那不只是一个鬼故事吗?”

飞板璐的翅膀在她烦恼的心情下扑腾了几下。

“听着,”她说道:“我知道那是个鬼故事,我也知道那不应该是真的,但我知道我看到了什么,是她!她就在哪里,我不知道该怎么做,但她确实存在!”她看着其它小马,她能看出她们眼神里有些不知所措,她们真的不相信她,而她需要想办法向她们证明那只老马是真的!

飞板璐说道:“谢谢你们大家过来看我,”然后她假装打了个哈欠,伸了伸蹄子。“我想我需要先休息一下,我过会儿再去找你们。”

“你确定吗?”甜贝儿问道,“我们想也许我们可以先去方糖甜点屋---”

“没关系,”飞板璐很快回应道,“我没那么饿,祝你们玩得高兴!”她回到屋里,把她满脸困惑的朋友们留在了门口。

英文版:

The next morning, when Scootaloo opened her eyes and found herself in her own bed, she briefly thought everything had been a dream. She hopped up and headed toward the kitchen. But when she rushed into the hallway, she heard a curdling scream.

“Oh! For Celestia’s sake!” an Earth pony exclaimed, picking up the basket of laundry she’d just dropped. “What are you doing there, Scootaloo? I thought you were spending the night up at your new friend’s house?” So it hadn’t been a dream.

Scootaloo had gotten in a fight with Apple Bloom and run into a creature right out of her nightmares. Awesome.

“Hey, Aunt Holiday,” Scootaloo said sullenly. “I…wasn’t feeling good so I came home.” Aunt Holiday studied Scootaloo with concern, clearly not buying it. But she didn’t pry; Aunt Holiday always let Scootaloo tell her things when she was ready.

“Well, head on into the kitchen. Auntie Lofty’s already in there. I’ll make you some breakfast in just a second.”

Scootaloo nodded and went into the kitchen, where a sturdy Pegasus, Auntie Lofty, was scarfing down a plate of eggs. She looked up at Scootaloo, surprised.

“Hey, slugger! What are you doing here?” Auntie Lofty asked.

“I came home last night! It’s not a big deal!” Scootaloo said more forcefully than she intended. Lofty arched an eyebrow. In contrast to Aunt Holiday, she never let things rest until she had answers. Aunt Holiday came trotting into the room and kissed Lofty on top of her head.

“Let me make Scootaloo some breakfast first, dear. Then you can give her the third degree.” Scootaloo sighed. Aunt Holiday was her dad’s older sister. Recently, she and Auntie Lofty had started staying with Scootaloo when her parents were away, which was most of the time. Unlike her parents, they were always interested in what was going on in her life. Usually it was nice that they cared, but this morning, she wished they would just leave things be. Scootaloo sat down at the kitchen table, where Auntie Lofty eyed her suspiciously. A knock at the door rescued Scootaloo from Lofty’s gaze.

“I’ll get it!” Scootaloo said, jumping up and rushing to the door. She opened it to find Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, Lilymoon, and Ambermoon standing there. They all looked at her with varying degrees of worry.

“Oh. Hey, guys,” Scootaloo said, not sure what to say.

“Hey,” Apple Bloom said, equally as uncomfortable. “We just wanted to make sure you were okay. Ambermoon told us you left in a hurry last night,” Scootaloon looked at Ambermoon. Why hadn’t she told them about the spooky, old pony on the stairs?

“Well, of course I did…I saw the Olden Pony coming down the stairs toward me. What else was I gonna do?” The fillies all glanced at one another, confused.

Ambermoon looked back at Scootaloo. “There wasn’t anypony on the stairs. We were in the kitchen, then you ran into the foyer and out of the house,” she explained.

“What? No, I saw her!” Scootaloo insisted. “She was right there on the stairs! She was asking about her rusty horseshoe!” Scootaloo couldn’t believe Ambermoon was lying!

“Well,” Apple Bloom began, “maybe you just thought you saw the Olden Pony after I reminded you of how scared you used to be of her.” She looked like she wanted to say more, but Scootaloo didn’t give her a chance.

“Can you please stop bringing that up?!” Scootaloo said angrily. “I don’t need you telling everpony else what a scaredy-pony you think I am!”

“That ain’t what I’m sayin’!” Apple Bloom responded.

“You’re just saying you don’t believe me,” Scootaloo said.

“Well, if Ambermoon didn’t see anything---” Sweetie Belle began.

“Oh, so now you trust Ambermoon?” Scootaloo asked.

“What does that mean?” Ambermoon said, looking at the others.

“Nothin’,” Apple Bloom said. She turned to Scootaloo. “Okay, so you think you saw something last night.”

“I did see something last night. The Olden Pony,” Scootaloo stated.

“But isn’t that just a ghost story?” Lilymoon asked. Scootaloo’s wings fluttered in annoyance.

“Look,” she said, “I know it’s a ghost story. I know she’s not supposed to be real. But I also know what I saw. It was her. She was there. I don’t know how, but she was.” She looked at the others. She could tell they were at a loss for what to say. They really didn’t believe her. She was just going to have to find a way to prove to them it was true!

“Thanks for coming by to check on me,” Scootaloo said, then forced a fake yawn and stretched her hooves. “I think maybe I just need some rest. I’ll catch up with you later.”

“You sure?” Sweetie Belle asked. “We thought maybe we could all go over to Sugarcube Corner and----”

“It’s okay,” Scootaloo said quickly, “I’m not that hungry. Have fun!” She went back inside, leaving her confused friends to state at one another quizzically on the doorstep.
