When the sun rises into the sky and peaked it's heated breath upon us we can only moan with disdain by the crippling, blinding light that removes from a place of slumber. Though there are some, like Stormy who is pleased to discover the dream he was having was not reality. Every sense Stormy was young he had the strangest dreams, making little to know sense. However, they were gripping, making you almost feel like they were real. He had always loved and had a slight fear of, not a terrified way of course.
More so curiosity, which caused a issue when he would spend days merely sleeping to enjoy his dreams. Today however he was very busy and he had to awake at morning's light to take a train to the oldest and jewel of the empire. Canterlot. Most when they arrived they are either pleased or dis-hearted. Dreamers and dread-ers. This combo of ponies and folks made for the most interesting social experience Stormy could hope.
He had many friends in Canterlot, many of them ponies with much more smarts then he, but for whatever really they found what he knew to have a value to it, as did Stormy. He was picking up something he had been requested to bring to a old friend. He had informed him that the item should be held with care and it must be returned to him with two days, or he feared it will be no longer of use.
His friend Bugs always viewed things on this path. He saw things as puzzles and what could be of use. Stormy didn't think along those lines, but was devious interested in understanding how that sort of mind worked. He arrived at the packaging department, being told by the Boss of the place that a employee would be with him shortly to aid him in getting his package. He removed fountain pen, letting it sit on the side of his mouth as he fought the desire to chew on it as he waited at the desk. Wondering to himself if removing a book to read and wait would be a good idea. He'd imagine it wouldn't be long, but he yearned to read at least a chapter before.
He was in his thoughts, discussing with himself as he ate the time he could be using to read as he would swing a little as he stood there.
