ADVENTURES OF THE EQUESTRIAN NINJA
Chapter 26: An 'Eventful' Night in Canterlot
"Looks like tonight's the night," said Naruto as he looked at the calendar which was hanging on a wall in his room, majority of the days in the month have been crossed out with a red marker except one that was circled and had the initials G.G.G "The Grand Galloping Gala will be held this evening over at the Canterlot Castle, but I don't see why everypony would be making such a big deal about it. I mean it's just a party like any other but that's just me talking since I'm never one for formalities,"
Then he glanced at the drawer where a golden ticket laid on top of it "Let's not forget that I was invited by the princesses personally to come along with Twilight and the girls, though it was funny what happened when the tickets first showed up in Celestia's letter," Naruto snickered as he recalled a few months ago.
When the letter came, there were two tickets attached to it, one for Twilight and the other for whomever she wants to bring along. This led to the others doing everything they can to impress Twilight so that she will take one of them along to the Gala for their own reasons. Applejack wanted to raise enough money to improve the farm, Rainbow Dash wanted to impress the Wonderbolts to let her join them, Rarity wanted to have a chance encounter with her prince charming, Pinkie Pie thought that it would be a bigger party than the ones she puts up and Fluttershy wanted to see the animals in the castle garden.
However the competition led into total chaos especially when everypony in town heard about it and wanted to go as well, Naruto had to help Twilight and Spike out by using a smoke bomb before creating two shadow clones who transformed into them to serve as distractions for them to escape to the library. But when they got there, it turns out that Applejack and the others had been waiting but were there to apologize for their behavior.
Then Twilight wrote a letter to the princess that she can't bring herself to choose one of her friends to bring along to the Gala and so won't be able to attend, but the funny thing was when she received a reply from Celestia saying why she didn't simply tell her the problem and so had attached four more tickets to the letter. It was even funnier when they realized that Naruto didn't have a ticket until he told them that he already has a ticket which he received personally from the princesses when he went to visit them during one of his deliveries over at Canterlot.
Naruto chuckled as he remembered the girls looking at him with their mouths gaping open in surprise before asking why he didn't tell them to which he responded that they didn't ask until now. "Well I better head over to the Carousel Boutique and get ready to put on my tuxedo since Rare wouldn't let me bring it home, saying something like I might ruin it and there would be no time to fix it,"
With that said, Naruto left the mansion and soon found himself over at his destination and found the girls already waiting there, Pinkie Pie was playing on a trampoline, Twilight was sitting nearby and reading a book with Spike watching her, and Applejack, Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash were just arriving.
"Hiya Naru! Are you excited to be going to the Grand Galloping Gala tonight? I know I am! And Twilight, and Rarity, and Fluttershy, and Applejack, and Rainbow Dash!" said Pinkie Pie as she continued to bounce on the trampoline.
"Keep it down Pinkie Pie, I can't concentrate on my reading with you being so loud," said Twilight, looking up from her book.
"Come on Twilight, you can't hold it against her for being overexcited since she's been looking forward to it for a while now, I'm sure the same could be said for the others," said Naruto.
"You're right about that pardner," said Applejack.
"I can't wait to meet the Wonderbolts! They'll definitely let me in when I show them my skills!" said Rainbow Dash with stars in her eyes.
"I'm looking forward to seeing all kinds of animals in the castle garden," said Fluttershy.
"What about you Naruto?" asked Spike curiously.
"I'm not one for formal parties and stuff like that, but doesn't mean that it hasn't piqued my interest so I'll still be coming along," said Naruto "Especially since the majority of ponies in Canterlot are so full of themselves, they are similar to the nobles back in my old world with that 'You're below me attitude',"
"That's great, I just know that we'll all have fun together," Spike spoke happily to which Naruto smiled in response to the young dragon.
Then Rarity came out of the boutique and saw Pinkie Pie bouncing on the trampoline and trotted over with a small frown on her face "Pinkie Pie stop that right now, it's almost time for the Gala and I won't be letting you put on your dress when you're all sweaty," hearing this made Pinkie Pie stop bouncing and jump off the trampoline with a pout.
"Okay, I'm all set. Spike you can bring it out now," said Twilight, then Spike took out an apple and placed it on the ground before everypony much to their curiosity.
"Ooooh, are we going to make apple pie?" asked Pinkie Pie.
"I don't think so Pinks, maybe Twilight is going to perform a spell on the apple," said Naruto.
"You're right about that Naruto, just watch," said Twilight, then she closed her eyes in concentration as the apple glowed brightly before it grew to a large size and the light faded away to reveal an apple-shaped carriage in its place.
"Whoa, that's pretty cool. Somehow it feels as if I read something like this from a storybook though I can't seem to recall the title,"
"Well this is just the start of things, we just need one more," Twilight turned to Fluttershy "Did you bring your friends Fluttershy?"
Then four white mice popped out of Fluttershy's mane and hopped to the ground "Yes but, will they be okay?"
"They'll be just fine," Twilight's horn lit up again and the mice were transformed into carriage horses, the odd thing was that they still had whiskers and large front teeth. The others just didn't know what to say about that "And you won't have to worry as they'll turn back into mice by midnight,"
"I read like something this from the book too, why can't I remember?" Naruto snapped out of his thoughts when he heard a loud yowl and looked up to see Rarity's pet cat Opalescence pouncing the mice turned horses.
"Opalescence, no!" Fluttershy called out but she was too late as the cat had frightened the mice-horses to run away.
"Oh no, those horses are supposed to pull our carriages. How will we get to the Gala?" Twilight felt worried about the current situation.
"Oh whatever shall we do? My dear Twilight, you seem to have forgotten about a certain pony who can be in more than two places at once," Rarity glanced to the side with Twilight following it to see Naruto before her eyes widened in realization of what she meant.
"Of course! Naruto can create shadow clones to pull the carriage to the Gala," said Twilight.
"Well if it's shadow clones you need, then I can help out with that," said Naruto with a nod.
"Now that our means of transportation has been resolved, let us go inside and prepare ourselves for the Gala tonight," Rarity led everyone into the boutique and through a door leading to another, but she closed the door and locked it before Naruto and Spike could come through which left them standing there and looking confused.
"Hey Rare, what gives? Why did you lock us out?" asked Naruto.
Spike was banging on the door "Yeah, let us in already!"
"Sure thing guys," they heard Rainbow Dash's voice as she was approaching the door, but then they heard Rarity protest.
"Heavens no! We're getting dressed!"
"Uh beg your pardon Rarity, but we don't always wear clothes," said Applejack.
Rarity groaned before unlocking the door and opening it for Naruto and Spike to enter "I'm sorry you two, some of us do have standards,"
"It's okay Rare," said Naruto with a smile, he looked around to see Twilight and Pinkie Pie standing underneath hairdryers, Rainbow Dash sitting on a large cushion with a towel wrapped around her mane, Rarity putting on fake eyelashes, and Applejack polishing Fluttershy's hooves.
"But I still can't believe that we're gonna be at Canterlot tonight! I know you've been there many times Naruto, but it's where Twilight and I came from, and I can't wait to hang out with all of you!" Spike looked very excited to which Naruto smiled at.
Rainbow Dash looked a bit unsure "Uh…I don't know, Spike,"
"We'll just have to see," Rarity blinked her eyes to make sure that the fake eyelashes won't fall out.
Applejack spat on Fluttershy's hoof and resumed polishing much to her discomfort "We're gonna be a mite busy,"
"Busy having fun!" Pinkie Pie took the hairdryer off to reveal her mane straightened and draped over her shoulders before puffing up back to normal immediately afterwards.
"Oh okay," Spike sat on a couch while feeling down.
"Cheer up Spike, I'm sure we'll make time to hang out together so don't be so down in the dumps," Naruto prodded Spike's shoulder while grinning, making Spike smile a little.
"Naruto's right, we'll all get to spend some time together," Twilight as she used a small brush to apply makeup to her muzzle from the makeup kit.
Spike smiled widely upon hearing that "That's great!"
"Now then, while we're getting ourselves ready. You and Naruto should go and put on your suits, and you can find them in the next room. Also don't come out until we're all in the carriage," said Rarity before using her magic to levitate Naruto and Spike out of the room and closing the door.
"Something tells me that she just wanted us out of the room," Naruto with a deadpanned expression.
Spike simply shrugged his shoulders "No matter, let's go and get ourselves ready for the Gala,"
Then they went into the next room and found the suits worn by mannequins, later on they're sitting on chairs both wearing a tuxedo tops over white collar shirts and bowties, although Spike's bowtie is red and Naruto's being orange much to his fancy but he had to put away his headband and goggles knowing that Rarity might put up a fuss about it clashing with his attire. Then they went to sit on the driver's seat with Naruto's clones already strapped on to the reins and the girls were inside the carriage chattering excitedly.
"I can't wait to show them my insider's tour in Canterlot. I wanna show Rarity the crown jewels, Applejack the princesses' golden apples, and Pinkie Pie will definitely love the donuts at my favorite donut shop," said Spike.
"Those sound like pretty cool places to check out," said Naruto.
"Yup which is why we need to get moving! Hiya!" Spike whipped the reins to spur the clones to move faster.
"Yeow!" one of the clones cried out before vanishing into puffs of smoke, Naruto winced a bit from the phantom pains of his clones before turning to give Spike a look as if saying 'Seriously?'
Spike rubbed the back of his head while looking embarrassed "Heh heh heh, sorry about that…I got too excited,"
A few hours after creating another pair of clones to pull the carriage, they finally arrived at the Canterlot castle. Naruto and Spike got off the driver's seat and opened the door of the carriage with a bow, they looked up and were mesmerized upon seeing what the mares are wearing.
"Whoa! You all look amazing! Don't you think so Naruto?" said Spike, when he didn't hear an answer he turned to see Naruto staring at the girls with a dazed look on his face. He shook Naruto, snapping him out of his reverie and look around in confusion.
"Huh what?" then he saw the girls giggling at him and turned away to hide his blush "Uh I think I'll park the carriage while you girls go inside, I'll join you soon," he walked off with his clones and after parking the carriage, he returned to the entrance and passed through to the interior of the castle "No matter how many times I come here, this place always amazes me," he looked around and saw many ponies walking around and having conversations with each other. He turned to a flight of stairs in the middle of the hall and saw princess Celestia at the top with Twilight by her side and went to meet them.
"Good evening princess Celestia and Twilight," said Naruto with a bow.
"It certainly is nice to see you here at the Grand Galloping Gala, Naruto," said Celestia with a smile.
"Thanks, but I was wondering where princess Luna is at the moment?"
"My sister had just returned from raising the moon and is in her room getting herself ready. In the meantime, why don't you walk around and meet with other ponies until she arrives?"
"That sounds like a good idea, I'll see you two later then," Naruto turned to leave.
"I hope you enjoy your time here," Celestia waved as she and Twilight watched him walk back down the stairs and disappear into the crowd "I must say that he certainly looks handsome in that tuxedo,"
"I know, although he was whining that it wasn't orange except for the tie," said Twilight to which Celestia giggled at.
"I've always wondered why he is so attached to that particular color,"
"Naruto himself says he doesn't know either, just that he felt a connection with it,"
"We may speak about it later as the guests are arriving," said Celestia, bringing Twilight's attention to see a long line of ponies coming to greet them.
Meanwhile Naruto was walking amongst the crowd as he watched many earth ponies and unicorns in fancy clothing chatting while others are having a drink at the buffet table. He felt awkward since he doesn't know how to start up a conversation with any of them, then he overheard to couple of ponies talking and listened in out of curiosity.
"I'm telling you my friend, it was an outrage! I just walking along the street minding my own business when a carriage passed by and ran over a puddle, splashing mud all over my new suit which I had custom ordered on that very day," said pony #1.
"What an outrage! That no good scoundrel deserves to be arrested and heavily fined for such a travesty," said pony #2 with a look of disgust.
"Truer words couldn't be spoken my friend," said pony #1.
Naruto walked away from the ponies with a sweatdrop "I don't think I could ever understand the mindset of these aristocratic ponies," he was snapped out of his thoughts when he heard someone call out his name.
"Could it be sir Naruto?"
He turned around to see a pony in a butler's outfit approaching him and immediately recognized who it was "Is that you John? It's been a while,"
"It is indeed a pleasure to see you again," said Jonathan with a smile.
"If you're here, does that mean your master and mistress are here too?"
"That is correct as I am accompanying them to the Gala. Why don't I introduce them to you? I'm sure that they'll be pleased to meet the inventor of the crystals,"
"Sure, I would like to meet them. Since I don't have anything to do right now," said Naruto "Or anypony to talk to at the moment,"
"Splendid, now if you would follow me this way," Jonathan walked off with Naruto right behind him, they walked into another hallway until he finally stopped and gestured ahead of them "There they are," Naruto looked in the direction and saw two ponies standing just a short distance away.
One is a male unicorn with a white coat, and azure mane and tail, Naruto also noticed that his horn is a bit larger than that of other unicorns aside from his bladelike horn. The unicorn is wearing an expensive looking tuxedo with a light purple bowtie and an ID card attached to it, he also wears a monocle on his left eye, and his cutie mark is three crowns with a purple diamond embedded in each.
The other is a female unicorn with a light gray coat and a pale pink with whitish streaks for a mane and tail. She wears a white ball gown, but Naruto could see her cutie mark which shows three flowers whose petals are joined together, two small purple flowers hover above each side of the large golden one.
"Whoa, those two look really high class," thought Naruto as he approached them with John by his side, the male unicorn turned and smiled upon seeing the butler walking up to them with someone by him.
"Ah Jonathan, who would this young stallion be that you brought along with you?" asked the male unicorn.
"Master, I would like to introduce you to Mr. Naruto Uzumaki, the owner of the Whirlpool over at Ponyville and the inventor of those crystals," said John before turning to Naruto "And this is my master, Mr. Fancy Pants, and my mistress Miss Fleur Dis Lee,"
"It's nice to meet you Mr. Fancy Pants," Naruto held out a hoof to shake which Fancy Pants complied with a smile.
"And it is a pleasure to meet you as well, I never would have thought that my butler was familiar with the one who created those wonderful crystals as they are quite favored among us nobles,"
"I must agree with him, your crystals has made my shopping so much easier for me, no longer would I have to worry about lack of space in my shopping bags," said Fleur Dis Lee with a flick of her long mane.
Naruto felt a bit embarrassed since he rarely receives compliments from others much "Thanks, I'm just glad that my crystals could help so many ponies,"
"Indeed they do, and I'm curious to ask how you were able to come with such beneficial creations?" asked Fancy Pants.
"Well during my travels, I discovered these crystals in a cave and noticed that they contain certain amounts of magic within. Then after much studying, I discovered that applying fuinjutsu to them could produce various effects depending on what kind of seal I place on them,"
"Fuinjutsu?" asked Fleur Dis Lee with a look of curiosity.
"It means sealing techniques, it is the art of sealing many things like objects, energy and quite possibly living beings within another object. However it is a very complex art, and making a slight mistake could result in disaster so only those with a lot of experience can use fuinjutsu," said Naruto.
Fancy Pants looked at Naruto in wonder "Astounding, but if you say that only the experienced can use such art. Then how can someone as young as you be able to use it if you could excuse me in case I'm being rude,"
Naruto simply nodded his head in understanding "It's quite alright, that would be because of my clan the Uzumakis. We were well known to be highly proficient in fuinjutsu and can easily understand complex seals at a mere glance,"
"I've never heard of such a clan in here in Equestria,"
"That's because we're from a faraway land so you wouldn't have heard of us," said Naruto "Especially since I'm from a different dimension,"
"If you won't mind me asking, but what are those markings on your cheeks?" asked Fleur Dis Lee.
Naruto rubbed the whisker marks on his cheeks "Oh these? They're actually birthmarks,"
"Really? Well they certainly give you a unique appearance,"
"Thanks, you're actually the second to say something like that to me," Naruto smiled happily.
"As much as we enjoyed this conversation, we must go and meet some of our acquaintances. Though I do hope that we meet again over a cup of tea," said Mr. Fancy Pants.
"Sure, anytime at all," Fancy Pants nodded in approval before walking off with Fleur Dis Lee next to him.
"I hope to see you again soon Mr. Naruto and have a good time in the Gala," Jonathan turned and went after his master and mistress as Naruto watched them leave.
"I like those guys, they're completely different from the other nobles and much nicer," Naruto started to look around and thought of where to go next "I wonder how the others are doing? I'm sure they're having fun right now,"
What Naruto didn't know was that he was only half right, apparently when the girls split up things started out okay but then it didn't go the way they expected it to be. For Applejack, she set up a stall at where there are ponies around to sell her food. It started out okay when a member of the Wonderbolts came by and bought a large apple pie much to her joy but then that was her only customer so far as no one else had come to purchase any more of her food.
Rainbow Dash spotted the Wonderbolts and was thinking of a way to get their attention, when one of the members who was the same pony that bought an apple pie accidentally let go of it much to his distress. She moved quickly and was able to catch the pie before it fell to the ground, this impressed them to the point that they invited Rainbow Dash to the VIP section of the Gala much to her joy. However that was just it and they didn't pay attention to her anymore.
Fluttershy was at the castle garden to make an acquaintance with the animals living there, she could hear them in garden but no matter how much she tried to coax them to come out and meet her, they would just avoid her much to her disappointment.
Pinkie Pie had wandered into a hall where she saw the dance floor, a live band and a lot of ponies. This made her so excited that she started to sing and dance aloud, wanting everypony to join in with her. But none of the ponies shared her enthusiasm and simply ignored her.
For Rarity, she was currently with a handsome unicorn by the name Prince Blueblood whom had caught her eye and was hoping to get to know him better. But she learnt that he wasn't quite what she envisioned her prince charming to be. It was when she was admiring a red rose in the garden then Blueblood plucked it up but instead of offering it to her like she expected, he rather attached it to his vest while saying that it made him look even more handsome much to her disappointment.
And for Twilight, ever since she arrived at the Gala, she had been by princess Celestia's side but can't seem to spend the time together because the guests just keep arriving and offering their respects to the princess, not giving them the time to even exchange ten words.
This wasn't what they had hoped for when they came to the Grand Galloping Gala, but they were determined to make this the best night ever.
Meanwhile Naruto was still walking around the halls, but he had a small frown on his face "I never thought that most of these high class ponies can be so darn fussy," after meeting Mr. Fancy Pants and Miss Fleur Dis Lee, he tried to mingle with the other ponies in the party, however he got snubbed for his 'inability' to hold a conversation or his whisker marks which they claim to make him look roguish. He found his way to a balcony and sat there looking at the scene before him, then he looked up to the moon illuminating the night sky "Well at least the moon looks beautiful tonight,"
"Thank you for the compliment," Naruto turned around to the source of the voice to see Princess Luna standing there with a smile on her face.
Naruto smiled upon seeing her "Luna! It's great to see you again!"
"Hello Naruto, it's also good to see you here at the Gala. I hope you're enjoying your evening here,"
"Yeah, I met some ponies who were really nice to talk to, but the rest weren't so nice to me with their fussy attitudes," said Naruto "But I'm sure Twilight and the others are having more fun than me,"
"Well some nobles do have certain standards. But had they had known who you were, they would have acted differently towards you," said Luna.
"What do you mean?" asked Naruto with a look of confusion.
"I don't know if you have noticed, but your crystals have made you quite the celebrity in the royal circles. But then who would have thought that the pony who made those wonderful crystals is the very same one delivering them," Luna smiled knowingly at Naruto who was rubbing the back of his head while looking sheepish.
"Well I'm not one for staying in one place for too long and I like to check out new places most of the time,"
Luna giggled a bit "So how are things in Ponyville? And did Kami give you a mission to another world?"
"Things are okay, and I did get a mission from Kami-sama," Naruto turned to stare at the moon again "And the world that I went to…was my old world,"
"Oh…I see, what happened?"
"My mission was to protect the descendant of a priestess who had sealed away a demon by the name Moryo, the demon had tried to use an invincible army to conquer the elemental nations. But the priestess stopped him by separating his soul from his body and placing them in two different places. Later on, somepony went and released the Moryo's soul and raised the army again with the intentions to reunite it with the body. Then he sent a group of ninjas to kill the priestess in order to avoid be sealed away again,"
"Oh my, so you had to protect the new priestess from danger,"
"I quickly moved in to protect her, and it was there that I reunited with my friends from the Hidden Leaf. At first they were hostile towards me thinking that I was an impostor since they saw my old body being buried back at the village but I was able to convince them that I was the real deal. They were really happy to see me again, especially my team mate Sakura," Naruto smiled softly.
"I'm sure that they really missed you," Luna smiled gently.
"They weren't the only ones," then Naruto continued to tell her how he met the priestess whose name is Shion and how she has the power to foretell the future and the deaths of the people close to her. Luna was horrified when he said that she foretold his death but was able to calm down since he's alive right now in front of her, he spoke of his battle with one of the ninjas all the way to his final battle against Moryo "…then Shion and I combined our chakras to form a Rasengan which was different from normal and used it to defeat Moryo once and for all. Then after the battle, I met up with more of my old friends. Shion revealed to me that Moryo was born from the darkness of people's hearts and that he might return but I assured her that I'll always be there to help when that time comes,"
"That is quite an adventure Naruto, but I feel as if you would have wanted to return with them to the village," said Luna.
"You're right about that, I really wanted to go back with them but…," Naruto trailed off as he looked at the night sky.
"I didn't want to leave you all behind, because you're all precious to me. Besides I can always revisit them at any time," said Naruto with foxy grin, Luna also smiled happily at what he said.
"Even when he had to opportunity to go back, he still choose to come back to us. You're really one of a kind Naruto," thought Luna "But Naruto, when are you going to reveal to Twilight and the others about your missions to other world?"
"It's eventual they'll know, but I just need the right time to tell them about it," said Naruto "But enough about me, how are things going for you and Celestia here in Canterlot?"
"Things are going quite well for us, although the nobles still act wary around me," Luna looked down at the ground when she said the last part.
Naruto let out a sigh, knowing that she's going through what he had back in the Hidden Leaf "Give them some more time to look past what happened back then, and they'll see you for who you really are. Princess Luna, co-ruler of Equestria and Alicorn of the moon,"
Luna gave Naruto a heartfelt smile "Thank you Naruto, that truly means a lot to me,"
Suddenly they heard a loud commotion going on below and looked at each other in confusion.
"What's going on?" asked Naruto.
"I don't know but let us make haste and find out," said Luna.
They hurried down to where the party is held and came upon a rather interesting scene, they arrived to see a large Alicorn statue fallen over with Rainbow Dash underneath as if trying to hold it back.
"With this, I'll definitely be with the Wonderbolts!" said Rainbow Dash, but the statue was heavier than she thought since the weight was making her teeter back and forth.
"Dash, watch out for that pillar!" Naruto was too late with his warning as she bumped into the pillar, causing it to tip over and collide with another pillar resulting in all the surrounding pillars to break apart and the statue itself broke into pieces.
They turned to see Celestia and Twilight coming through the door to see all this, with Pinkie Pie, Applejack and Rarity looking worried.
"Well at least it can't get any worse," said Twilight.
Naruto let out a groan upon hearing "Twilight, you just invoked Murphy's Law by saying that, and now things will get a whole lot worse,"
As if confirming his statement, the ground started to shake and the doors leading to the castle garden burst open with many animals and birds of different varieties rushing in and Fluttershy was behind them with an angered look in her eyes which was a surprise to Naruto.
"You will love me!" Fluttershy yelled out.
Everypony were thrown into a panic as they ran helter-skelter to escape the chaos and animals.
"I kinda hope that Fancy Pants, Fleur Dis Lee and John aren't around to witness this," thought Naruto, then he saw Celestia whisper to Twilight that they should run, and she whistled to catch the other's attention.
Applejack and the others turned to see Twilight and Naruto gesturing for them to come this way so that they could get out of here. They all ran through the door and down the staircase when they heard Pinkie Pie call out to Rarity.
"Oooh! Rarity, your glass slipper! Now your prince will be sure to find you!" said Pinkie Pie.
Rarity let out a horrified shriek before quickly running up the stairs and crushing the slipper with her hoof much to Naruto's surprise and confusion "Let's go!"
"But where do we go from here?" asked Rainbow Dash.
"I know a place we can go to, come on," said Twilight before leading the way for Naruto and the others to follow.
"Yo Pony Joe, another donut over here," said Spike who was currently sitting on a stool at a counter in the donut shop which he told Naruto about, turns out he was there the whole time since Twilight and the others split up in the Gala.
"Haven't you had enough?" asked the shopkeeper known as Joe.
"Dude I want another donut, and this one with sprinkles!"
"Mind if you order up for us too Spike?" Spike turned around to see Naruto grinning at him with Twilight and the others entering the shop.
"Hey guys! How did the Gala go? How was your best night ever?" Spike ran over to them, wanting to know what happened at the Grand Galloping Gala.
"Actually Spike…," Twilight then told him all that happened at the Gala with the others telling their story as well.
"Whoa! Sounds like the worst night ever!" said Spike.
"It was!" everypony said simultaneously before breaking into laughter.
"I just hope Princess Celestia and Princess Luna isn't upset with us for ruining the Gala," said Twilight worriedly.
"I don't think so Twilight, I'm pretty sure that they rather enjoyed it," said Naruto, since he knew how they are.
"You're definitely right about that Naruto," everypony turned to see Princess Celestia standing at the entrance along with Luna and both were smiling.
"I must agree with Naruto, tonight's party was much more interesting than the previous ones," said Luna.
"But Princess, tonight was just…awful," said Twilight.
"Oh Twilight, the Grand Galloping Gala is always awful,"
"And quite boring as well since it's always the same as the previous ones," said Luna with Naruto nodding in agreement.
"That was why we were so happy that you would all be attending, we were hoping that you could liven things up a bit," said Celestia.
Naruto quirked an eyebrow at hearing that "Really? Then if that was the case, I would have let myself loose all over the place instead of acting all chummy with all those nobles,"
Luna giggled "Indeed you would had you known,"
"Although the night didn't turn out the way you wanted it, but you must admit that it wasn't all that bad for you and your friends,"
"You're right Princess, friends at times can make the worst into something pretty great," said Twilight with a smile.
"Yeah like hanging out with friends," said Rainbow Dash.
"Making new friends too," said Naruto with a foxy grin.
"Talking," said Fluttershy.
"Laughing!" said Pinkie Pie.
"You mean doing exactly what I wanted to do the whole time?" said Spike with a smirk.
"That's right my draconic buddy, we should have followed your idea from the get-go," said Naruto.
"Well as horrible as our night was…" said Applejack.
"Being together here has made it all better," said Rarity.
"In fact, it's made it…" Pinkie Pie began.
"The best night ever!" everypony said it simultaneously before breaking into laughter as they began to have their own fun in the donut shop.
