Another walk in Ponyville... Mister Lionheart thought, walking and looking around. Today was awfully sunny, and he had just gotten done doing his job. Ugh... Sometimes, I wonder... He looks around, stopping at a nearby statue. Why do ponies do... That...? Catching himself almost literally glaring at a couple about to kiss, he shook his head. I shouldn't be thinking about that. I just got finished with work, and I'm tired... But... Mister Lionheart couldn't help but see that more, and more couples were starting to come up in his vision, not noticing him. He had started to frown, looking down at the ground.
What would it feel like... Having a... Mate... If that's what you call them. Mister Lionheart knew the difference between a Friend and a 'Mate'. He started to walk again, wandering around. He would sometimes see the same group of friends, or couples, because he had gotten used to the routes he took. Maybe... I should ask? He walked up to a nearby pony... But all he could manage was a simple 'Do you know where the Statue is?' The pony made a face, and pointed at a direction that Lionheart knew wasn't the right way... But he followed it anyway.
I'm getting sick now... Seeing couples everywhere. Why do other ponies do stuff like this...? Mister Lionheart stopped at a bench, and sat down. He sighed.
"Why does everyone have a... a... mate...?" He thought, out loud. He relaxed a bit, looking around again, still frowning, an almost depressed look on his face.
