80 - Friends Found Part 1
So, yeah. Went down closer to the base, and they’ve got camo jeeps ‘n’ shit. No way would I wanna try doin’ super spy shit on this place. My mane was a fuckin’ wreck as it was anyway, so I just wanted to get in there, do some business negotiations with their boss, and get back home.
But like I mentioned before, right after I closed the deal, AppleBoom blew the whole place sky-high and I flew us to safety. Unfortunately, it was all a pretty hectic ordeal, and I didn’t wind up getting any pictures of that last little bit.
Still, we managed to get back safely. That’s the good news.
The bad news is that now it looks like most of our crew’s gone missing, and with us working hard and trying to get them back while still keeping the mob running smoothly, updates on here are gonna yet again become sporadic. Instead of my preferred every-three-days schedule, it’ll often be weekly or less. Sorry!
Once I found out where the kid was supposed to be, I went up to the top of the crater to do check the place out. They had a pretty hefty operation goin’ on down there, and I was just one mare. I’d have to pull some Rambony shit to get Appleboom outta there. Straight-up Sylvester Stallione on their asses.
There didn’t seem to be many ponies on guard, so I found a good hiding place and flew down to check it out closer.
Also, the wind and humidity were wreakin’ havoc on my fuckin’ hair. Lookit that shit.
What’s that? The storyline’s just starting to get somewhere? Then by all anime logic it’s time for the SEXY SWIMSUIT POOL FILLER EPISODE!
That’s not soft lighting on the second pic or whatever, the camera was just kinda out of focus and a little wet.
Haywaii Trip - Day 4
Yeah, here’s where the trip started goin’ shitty. I went to the place AppleBoom was supposed to be stayin’ and what do you know? Fuckin’ empty. They took everything. Furniture, floors, cupboards, everything but the—oh, wait. Yeah. They took the kitchen sink, too.
So, the task wouldn’t be as easy as I figured. I was hopin’ to find Boom loungin’ around all lazy, and that I could just tell off the little scamp, maybe help her with the mission or whatever. But no, looks like she got ransacked or whatever, so I had to make some more calls.
Ehpplejack told me the whole plan. The big facility the Flower Gang was runnin’ in this volcanic crater, the lab they’d set up for Boom to make an explosive so huge it’d turn the ground into magma temporarily to hide the evidence, all that stuff. So, I had to pack up my shit and head over to try and infiltrate the place MYSELF and see if they had the dang kid.
Haywaii Trip - Day 3
So, I went ahead and made some calls about the Flowers. Ehppleack said Boom was doin’ some kinda mission and hadn’t made contact. Spent most of the day checkin’ out the view one last time before I had to WASTE the rest of my trip searchin’ for the little brat. Barely even fuckin’ got settled in.
Haywaii Trip - Day 2
I decided to check out the beach. Whole buncha these weird bipeds hangin’ around, but they didn’t bother me. Didn’t have an inflatable mattress in my size, though, so I had to deal with this enormous one. I tried workin’ on my tan a little, but I was worried about getting burned, so I just wound up sittin’ around and checking out the water for most of the afternoon. It was pretty relaxin’.
I started noticing the Flower presence more and more by this point, but didn’t want to make any sorta move yet or whatever.
Haywaii Trip - Day 1
I got settled in and checked out the view from my balcony. Lookit this shit! I’m 21 stories up! I’d be freakin’ out if I didn’t have wings. I was startin’ to get suspicious about all the flower stuff around this time, but still had no clue what was actually going on.
I packed my snazzy vest and grey cuffs for the trip. Didn’t bring enough cigars, though.
