Aqua had to stay with Blue Fedora for about a week before she was finally healed. She sat on Blue Fedora’s couch, waiting for him to get ready to come with her. “Hurry up, Fedora. Everypony must think I’m dead Von now.” She called. “Okay, hold on a moment… okay, I found some money to buy train tickets with.” He said, trotting down the stairs. “Finally. Now I can go home. I hope Fluttershy took care of Quaky for me.” She said, hopping off the couch. “Now Aqua, your minor injuries have healed, but your wing is still broken and your stab wound on your shoulder needs a little Mehr time to—stop scratching the stab wound! Do Du want it to open up again?” he sagte as she started to scratch at the scar sewn shut on her shoulder. “Well, I’m sorry! It itches! Now, can we go instead of standing around all day?” she snapped. “Yeah, just take it easy, though. Du don’t want to be hurt Mehr than Du already are.” He said, putting a black fedora with a blue eichelhäher, jay feather sticking out of it on his head. He trotted out the door with Aqua following, and she gazed around at the grand city, and the ponies that dwelled within it. “The ponies here look really… uppity.” She said. “Yeah, I guess they are. I’ve lived here all my life, so I guess I never noticed it.” he said. They trotted up to the train station, and Aqua Marine waited patiently for Blue Fedora to get the train tickets. He trotted up Weiter to her, and waited with her. A few Minuten later, the train screeched into station, and the doors opened, and ponies started flowing off the train as others got on. “Come on, Aqua.” He said, trotting vorwärts-, nach vorn to get on the train. He handed the conductor the tickets as Aqua picked a sitz and sat down. Blue Fedora sat Weiter to her. Aqua stared out the window all the way back home, looking at all the sights flashing by.
The train pulled into Ponyville, and Aqua trotted down the road, grateful to be back in a familiar place. Suddenly, she was crowded as Pinkie Pie, Applejack, Twilight Sparkle, Fluttershy, Rarity, Peak, and even regenbogen Dash gathered around her, all talking at once. “SHUT UP!! One at a time, please!” Aqua shouted, stamping her hoof on the ground. “We were so worried when Du went missing, Aqua! Where were you?” Peak said. “Yeah, and are Du all right, sugarcube? Du look kinda beat up.” applejack said. “Oh dear, your mane looks simply awful! Du must let me fix it up.” Rarity then said. “Guys, it’s all right. I just sorta… bumped my head, fell down a gorge, and floated down a river, unconscious. Blue Fedora here saved me.” She said, stepping out of the way to Zeigen the blue unicorn standing behind her. “Er… it was nothing…” he sagte nervously, rubbing the back of his neck. “Sugar, Du saved another pony’s life! THAT’S nothing?!” applejack said. “Um…” Suddenly Pinkie Pie hopped up. “Ooh! You’re cutie mark’s a hat! What’s your special talent?” she randomly said. “My what? Oh, my special talent is making and decorating hats.” He said. Pinkie Pie giggled, and regenbogen Dash burst out laughing. “What?! What’s so funny?” he said. “Well, Du see, making hats ain’t really… common… for stallions.” applejack explained, holding back laughter. “Oh, I don’t really think it’s funny. It’s a wonderful talent.” Fluttershy said. “I agree with Fluttershy. It is a very respectable talent indeed.” Rarity said. “Rainbow, Pinkie, stop laughing! You’re making him uncomfortable.” Twilight snapped. “Yes, Twilight.” They moaned.
“I never even wanted to make hats.” Blue Fedora grumbled to Aqua as she showed him around Ponyville. “I wanted to be a detective.” Aqua looked at him sympathetically. “Well, um… I can see why it bugs Du that… oh, never mind. I’m not good at that type of thing.” Aqua said. He snorted and rolls his eyes. “Figures. So, were Du born in Ponyville?” he asked. She lifted an eyebrow at him. “What? No! Yous ain’t evah seen anypony mo’ Manehattan than me.” She sagte in a mock accent. He laughed. “I’m glad I have Du as a friend, Aqua.” He said. She blushed, feeling embarrassed. “Oh, I wouldn’t exactly say friends… Mehr like good acquaintances.” She said. “Oh, well…” Blue Fedora said, feeling a little let down. “Oh, fine. I’ll consider Du a friend. Now, let’s go to Sugarcube Corner. They have great cupcakes.” Aqua said, trotting away with her new friend following.
