The City of Magic
« on: September 04, 2015, 12:05:14 am »
With a loud whistle, the train from Ponyville finally reaches its destination in Canterlot station. Despite the weather, ponies are found hustling and bustling with their daily business. The brakes screech as the locomotive comes to a halt. As the crew unloads the train's larger cargo, the doors to the passenger carts open.

"And were off." Foxtrot says with some fervor as he opens the divider. "Lets get out of here."

Tinder stares out the window until the train stops, when it finally does she stands up and stretches a bit, a very quick flash of pain crossing her face as she does so. Hoping that Foxtrot didn't notice she realizes that she needs to find a moment alone to take what she needs. But she can hold out for a little bit longer until it gets too bad again. She follows behind as Foxtrot leaves and  nods, "Yeah, let's go. Where do you want to check first?"

"Lets head over to the castle. It's pretty much the main attraction of the city." Foxtrot answers. As they exit the station he looks around, still expecting to see wanted posters but not finding any. "How you feeling Tinder?"

She nods and follows behind, her pace a bit slower then before, "Castle sounds good, haven't been in a castle before." When asked how she is she looks at him and smiles as much as she can while her last dose is loosing affect, trying to hide it the best she can that she's in any amount of pain. "I'm fine, fine. Totally a-okay."

"Alright, well if you see anything you want to check out, just let me know." Foxtrot says as they venture through the streets of Canterlot. The weather seems to be clearing out as the sun begins to fall towards the horizon. Businesses begin closing as ponies start to head home and call it a night.

Tinder knows she's gonna have to wait till they get to the castle before she can do much of anything about the pain, so she just follows and ignores it as much as she can. "I don't really know much about this place to be honest, so I don't even know what there is around to check out." She keeps her eyes on any ponies that come near to them, if any come close enough and seem to be distracted she quickly picks their pockets as they pass, putting any items she earns into her bag.

"Well it's a pretty big place so hopefully we don't get lost. I've been in Canterlot a few times but not enough to know it by hoof." Foxtrot replies as he continues down the road to the castle. The two pass several distracted nobles and ponies too busy to talk about their own matters. After some time they reach the castle as the sun touches the horizon, the starry night filling the air as the day fades off. "Alright, let's wait til it gets a bit darker. From there we can check out the real sights."

Tinder smirks a bit every time she gets something off of these nobles, glad that she's gonna have something to sell in when she gets back. "Yeah, I'm sure we'll be fine. And you've been here more then I have, this is my first time, so I can't help at all with the directions." As time goes on the more Tinder slows down, and more and more often are her steps marked with the shooting pain that crosses her face but doesn't escape her lips. Not once does she make a sound, she just looks away and hopes he doesn't notice. Even though she needs them, she is still much too nervous to take them in front of him.

As the sun finally exits the scene and night falls over the city, most ponies have now gone indoors for the evening. The guards change their shifts as noctrals take their posts around the castle. Foxtrot leads Tinder to a more remote section of the castle. Looking around he finds a part of the fence he and Tinder can climb over without being detected. "So, you ready to see something so cool we could get in trouble for being there?"

Tinder looks at the fence she's been brought to and realizes that she's gonna be expected to climb it, she sighs a tiny bit as she thinks about it and nods. "Yeah, I wanna see whatever you're talking about. I mean all the coolest things can get you in trouble right." She smiles as much as she can at him before heading for the fence, trying to figure out a way to climb it that gonna cause the least amount of pain possible.

Foxtrot steps over to the fence and kneels down, "Here, I'll give you a boost." He looks around to make sure no guards are near.

Tinder glances around once more before going. Using him as a boost she makes her way up and over the fence, getting down is not to easy of a task. Instead of a graceful climb down, it's more of a tumble, which leaves her lying on the ground on her side. It's the first time that a noise caused by her pain escapes her lips as she groans in pain a tiny bit as she lays there, figuring there is no point in even trying to get up until Foxtrot gets over.

"Tinder?" Foxtrot asks as he looks over his shoulder. As soon as he sees her laying on the ground he tenses up, "Oh sh- hang on!" Stepping back the unicorn make a running start before leaping over the fence, landing a short distance away from her. "Are you alright? Here let me help you up." Foxtrot hurries over to the mare and helps her up to a sitting position. "You ok?"

Tinder's ears twitch about as she hears him do all this, weighing every part of this situation and trying to figure out what to do next. Realizing that she's not gonna be able to go much longer until she becomes useless, unless she takes what she needs, she decides on the best plan of action. As she's moved into a sitting position she winces a bit and nods at him, she breathing every so slightly jagged, "Yeah, I'm fine, fine. Just could you get the pill bottle from my bag please? I'm fine though."

Without hesitating Foxtrot goes into the bag and rummaged for the bottle. Within moments he retrieves it and gives it to Tinder. "Here. Do you need anything to drink with that?"
