Snowdrop looked at the shadows dancing in front of her. "E-Everfree Forest!" she stammered to herself. Gulping in a breath of air she began trotting down a narrow pathway covered in weeds and twigs. Strange sounds echoed through the air as she picked up pace hoping the evil creatures that lurked here wouldn't eat her. A rustling sound came from behind her, Swiping around Snowdrop nearly screamed when she saw a moving bush. Turning her speed-trot into a run she squinted her eyes shut and kept running...and running...and running. Until, WHAAAAAM! She crashed into a stone structure. Blinking her eyes open Snow gasped at the nightmare moon statue looming over her. "Eeeek!" she scurried backwords into a thistle bush. "Ouch!" she said, scrambling forward looking for the path. The path was gone! She must have ran off it when her eyes where shut! "Now I'm lost and all the terrible things will eat me!" she sniffed as tears streamed down her face. Curling up in a ball on the ground she awaited her fate.

Star Gazer was trotting along the path of the Everfree Forest. He was out there to try and find anywhere with a good view of the sky to start making a star chart of the skies above the forest, something that had yet to be done. However, he was distracted from his thoughts, his ears perking up at the sudden, foal-like screams from nearby. Curious and a bit worried at the fright in the scream, he turns off the beaten path, making sure first to use his horn to make marks in the trees to lead the way back; he'd learned from previous experiance how easy you could get lost here, and it was always wise to mark a path.
After a while, he comes to the clearing with the statue of Nightmare moon. He also notices the curled up, shaking ball of a filly neat said statue. Slowly, he trots up to her, "Are you okay?"

(Lightning is most of the time in the forest so yeah.)
Twilight Lightning was in the forest. She never seemed to notice how scary it was and acually got use to it. She was about to go back home, but heard something. She jumped, but stayed quiet. She got low and began to crawl towards the noise. She sneaked into the bushes and saw two ponies. She didn't move from the bushes, she didn't like to be around many and for some reason she felt today the two was too many. She began to walk away, but her mane got stuck. She tugged, now she was making noise. "Come on." Lightning whispered. It ended with her rolling. She grunted and landed on her stomach. "Ow." She was just able to whisper it.

Suddenly, his ears perk at the sound of noise nearby, his eyes flicking over towards it for a second. Things were quiet after, so he passes it off as hearing things. He smiles kindly down at the filly, trying to keep her calm, "My name's Star Gazer. Who are you?"

Twilight Lightning didn't pay attention. There were sticks in her mane and was soon shaking her head and sticks flew here and there. Her mane was soon clear of sticks. She heard a few of the words. "Huh, Oh. I-I am..." Lightning paused. She was still a little shy. Not all the time she would be, but odd enough it was one of theose days. "Twilight Lightning... but just call me Lightning." She eplained. She had stammered in her sentence, she wish she hadn't. "Um I heard one of you were lost, I-I know the way." Lightning stammered a little bit. She hated stammering, but it seemed to happen sometimes.

Snowdrop slowly stood up and smiled. "My names Snowdrop Flames. Just call me Snowdrop". She looked down and murmured silently under her breath. "The filly with no home. No love. No one but herself." Then swiftly turning her head to Lightning she said. "Great I should have never came in here in the first place!"

"This place isn't scary to me. I come here everyday." Lightning said. She did indeed like it here. To her it was cozy, not scary. It was comfortable her mind. She was a brave young pony who was willing to go in. She didn't like crowds so this place was amazing to her.

Star looks at the other filly, rather surprised by her words. She was definatly brave, if that was the case. "Hey now, calm down," Star says, putting a hoof on Snowdrops back gently. "You really shouldn't have come in here if you don't know how to get around The Everfree Forest can be scary for a little filly if she doesn't know where she's going. Why'd you even come here, anyway?"

Coming to everfree wasn't her smartest choice but at least she was able to talk to someone. It wasn't anything special, But it meant a lot to her. After considering that thought Snowdrop sighed, looked down and whispered "because I don't have a home". Which sounded more like "Becuaseefidwontahanehoem", Which made no sense. She looked up and cast a weary grin at the other ponies.
