I watched Ты walk away
Hopeless, with nothing left to say
I strain my eyes
Hoping to see Ты again

CHAPTER ONE: MUSINGS ON A GEMSTONE
Spike gnawed at the gemstone that he had been sent as an anonymous present. He had been suspicious of the present when he received it but he was overjoyed to see a stone inside. With his sharp little teeth at work now, trying to break piece off. It taste extremely sweet but it was extremely hard. He had of course wondered who had sent it, but because the stone was in a сердце shape, he was sure it was sent by Rarity или Fluttershy. One of the two girls had to have noticed his subtle advances and decided to return it. Maybe both of them at the same time. Spike's teenage mind liked that idea. But he shook it off. It didn't matter to him. He liked both of them, he just wanted a female companion. Even though Twilight Sparkle had discouraged him from getting involved with anyone but dragons.
She hypothesized that he would live far longer than any of them. He didn't like to think about this, but he pushed it away for the sake of his hormones. He would deal with it when it came. Twilight was always giving him suggestions on things like this. She seemed to think of herself as his big sister and while he liked to think of her that way (maybe little sister) she wasn't, so he didn't exactly have to take what she сказал(-а) into account. He wasn't obligated to.
After a few еще moments of chewing at it he growled at it in frustration. It was delicious, but tasting it wasn't enough. He wanted the gemstone in his stomach and to feel the solid feeling it gave him in his gut.
He took it out of his mouth, tapping it and listening to the solid sound it made. Very hard, much harder than any other gemstones he'd ever had или seen. He took it up to the library, meaning to research the stone but as he licked it's surface as he searched for a book about gemstones, his stomach growled louder and he Остаться в живых patience.
He went and got a hammer and nail and returned to the stone. He began drumming on it's surface, at first not very hard (not having any doubts of his own strength) and then pounding on it as hard as he could but he didn't chip it или make a crack. Soon he began trying a long Список of objects on it, all sharp или blunt, trying to crack the stone.
Outside the door, Twilight Sparkle and Fluttershy arrived. Twilight had been listening intently to what Shy had been saying. Ты had to listen fairly closely anyway because she stammered a lot, but it also concerned Spike.
“So if Ты wouldn't mind... could Ты please... Ты know, if Ты don't have anything еще important to do... talk to or... maybe... tell Spike that I'm not really... interested in him the way... he is in me. I mean I'm flattered and all... but I just want to... know about Драконы not know their... well...”
Twilight was surprised Shy had actually made a sexual suggestion and chuckled, trying to reassure her that her attempt at a joke was well received.
“I understand.” Twilight said. “I'll talk to him.”
“Oh thank you! Thank you!” Fluttershy said, hugging her friend.
Twilight nodded and entered the house, calling Spike's name. She followed a trail of blunt and sharp objects, concluding that the young dragon was trying to break something. When she found him in the library, he was sitting on the floor, dazed. She saw the сердце shaped gemstone and concluded that after trying several different things, he had tried his own forehead as the solution to the hard gem. While she had to admit his head was pretty hard, it wasn't in the sense to solve his problem and seemed to have caused him еще pain and frustration so far. She summoned a bucket of water and tossed it in his face. He shook his head and gripped his throbbing cranium.
“Ow, what happened?” He asked looking around.
“It seems that gemstone is giving Ты problems. Where did Ты get it?” Twilight asked.
“Oh, it was sent by Fluttershy.” Spike сказал(-а) proudly and after a skeptical look from his пони companion, he added; “Or Rarity.”
“It was sent anonymously.” He said.
“Then how do Ты know it was either of them?” She asked, though she was already searching her Книги for some information on the gemstone.
“Who else would have sent it? They've obviously begun to notice my charm and decided to play along.”
“I see... well that charm is something we need to talk about.” Twilight сказал(-а) and once she found the gem in one of her books, she quickly skimmed it, not bothering to read its history или information and getting straight to how to crack it. “Bite it in the very middle of the two humps.” She said.
Spike went to gnawing at the center of the heart.
“Okay,” He said, mouthful of gemstone. “What about it?”
“Well Fluttershy was talking to me and she сказал(-а) you've been... hitting on her and that she'd like it if you'd st-...”
“Got it!” He exclaimed, cutting her off as he broke a piece off and popped the gem into his mouth, chewing at it unsuccessfully for a moment before gritting his teeth and swallowing the hollow thing. It got stuck in his throat and he began to hack and cough.
Twilight jumped as he began choking and rushed over hitting him on his back, trying to help him get it down. It didn't work at first and he fell over on his back and Twilight pulled him up against her and used her fore hooves and fore legs to squeeze his stomach, trying to get him to cough it up. It slowly rose as a large lump in his throat before he spat it out in a puff of green smoke. He sat back and sighed, while Twilight covered her head as the gemstone bounced off the walls twice before coming back at Spike's open mouth and going straight down to his stomach. He lay there on the ground, knocked back from the impact, staring at the ceiling. Twilight loomed over him, trying to awake him from the trance.
“Spike, Spike! Wake up!” She cried, shaking him.
He blinked and then shook his head. “Wow, this gem is great!” He exclaimed, rubbing his stomach where it rested.
Twilight sighed in relief. After a fraction of a секунда Spike suddenly blinked and his pupils became a hazy розовый color. His stomach tried to digest the gem in stomach and as it did, clouds of розовый smoke drifted up through his body, getting into his lungs and his nose, and into his head, creating clouds over his mind. He sighed, letting out a puff of розовый smoke instead of green and then looked up at Twilight in surprise before his mind registered who she was and and where she was in relativity to him and he smiled.
“Whoa, Twilight... Are we about to begin?”
