Ember's Dream

Panel #1
"Of course, I should really start some years before that, when I was just about as old as dear Scootaloo is now. Oh, I'm sure you won't believe it, but I imagine I was quite the wild child back then! I would spend every day outside frolicking with my friends, watching the brilliant wings of painted butterflies, wildflowers dancing in the meadow, fluffy clouds floating in a crystal blue sky, or the blazing colors of the rainbow. But I'm afraid I wasn't completely happy, darling. You see, all my friends had special talents like flying fast or jumping high or teleporting, and there simply didn't seem to be anything special about poor little me! I just couldn't wait to find out what set me apart from everypony else, no matter how my friends told me to be patient."
