Scootaloo's New Home

By peppermintswirl4812

Children / Other

Chapter 1

One night in Ponyville, some storm clouds had started to create a storm. The weather pegasi had told everypony to stay indoors, because the storm was very dangerous. Scootaloo was getting into bed at her house. She had just gotten under the covers and her parents had come to say goodnight to her. Her mom was a yellow pegasus with a pink mane and a picture of lemonade for a cutie mark, her name was Summershine. Her dad was a red pegasus with a silver mane and a lightning bolt and a cloud for a cutie mark, his name was Lightingfire.

“Goodnight sweetheart,” Scootaloo’s mom said.

“Goodnight honey,” her dad said.

“Night,” Scootaloo replied.

Her parents left the room to go to bed. Scootaloo sighed, she loved her parents, she really did, but they weren’t home all that often. A filly staying home in an empty house can make them feel kind of lonely after a while. So Scootaloo spends most of her time outside with her friends. As the family drifted off to sleep the storm’s strength grew. Scootaloo groaned and twisted around in her sleep.

“Uh! When will this thunder storm ever stop?! ,” she said to herself, and then covered her ears with her pillow. Unfortunately the large lake behind their house was growing. The dam broke and a huge wave came crashing on their house, destroying it. As the house fell Scootaloo hung onto her bed for dear life. The whole house collapsed down into the water. Luckily the bed stayed afloat. Scootaloo gasped for breathe and searched the water’s surface for her parents.

“Mom! Dad! Where are you?!,” she called out. Her parents however, were nowhere to be seen. They never rose from the water.
