'My name is Spike. I know it's usually a name for dogs, but hey it works for me. My parents told me when I was born they could see translucent pieces of hair sticking up like spikes. That's how I got my name. I used to live in a town called Ponyville, until me and my parents moved to Canterlot where I had no idea it would be the start of a glorious new life for me. I remember the day we moved in was the very day I met six girls who were my neighbors and would become the greatest friends I could ever wish for. There was Pinkie Pie, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Rarity, and Twilight Sparkle.' a voice narrated.

'Pinkie Pie was a funny girl. Always energetic and bouncy, and it wasn't due to her sugar high. She was a party machine and always knew how to make even the dullest of people laugh and crack a smile.'

'Applejack was the honest big sister of the group. She was always taking care of us and making sure we stayed out of trouble. And boy she can make a delicious apple pie.'

'Rainbow Dash was a cool girl, the tough one of the group, actually. She wouldn't take crap from anyone even when we were kids. If there was one thing aside from her unquestionable loyalty that I liked about her it was her love of sports. She made all the boys literally cry for their mommies when they lost to her.' Spike laughed.

"Fluttershy's persona speaks for herself, but it's ok, shy ones are always the ones full of surprises. With her kindness on a mother's level you can always count on her to use her shoulder to cry on.'

'Rarity was the fashion lover of the group. She had charm, flare, and beauty. But most importantly, she was generous. Always doing stuff for others purely out of the goodness of her heart.'

'And Twilight, now she was probably the closest to me. A bookworm who always tried to find logic in everything and takes certain things too seriously. Still she always was there to give me a little pick me up when I was down. Those six were my greatest friends, and I knew they would always be.'

In Canterlot park, the seven friends were all together. Spike who was eight years old with green spikes hair was wearing white shoes, little brown shorts, and a purple short sleeved shirt was on his knees crying in fright as two stray dogs were barking at him.

The ones protecting him were the girls themselves who were all eleven years old. Twilight had long dark purple hair with a single pink streak in it. Her outfit included light purple shoes with matching socks, a darker purple skirt with start patterns on it, and a blue buttoned up shirt.

Pinkie Pie had large pink poofy hair, and was wearing pink shoes, a blue skirt, and a white shirt with pink poofy short sleeves and balloon images on it. Applejack had blond hair in a ponytail with a red rubberband tied at the bottom, and had freckles on her face. She wore little cowboy like boots, jeans with a belt on with the buckle looking like an apple, an orange buttoned up shirt with two breast pockets, and on her head was a stetson hat.

Rainbow Dash had rainbow colored hair, and her attire included, white and black sneakers, jeans with the bottoms rolled up, and a light blue shirt with a thunderbolt cloud design on it. Rarity had purple hair done up in curls with a three diamond hair clip in it. Her attire was composed of purple slip on shoes, and a blue dress with short purple sleeves. Fluttershy had long pale pink hair, wore sandals, a yellow skirt with a butterfly image on it, and a white sleeveless top.

As the dogs continued barking at Spike, the little boy cried in fear while covering his eyes, as Fluttershy, Twilight, and Rarity were trying to calm him down, while Rainbow, Applejack, and Pinkie were scolding the dogs, "Hey, you mean doggies, leave little Spike alone!" Pinkie ordered them.

"Yeah, go away before we have to make you varmints!" Applejack added.

The dogs continued to bark, until Rainbow Dash stomped her foot in front of them taking them by surprise, "Get out of here already!" the two dogs took off running.

Seeing the dogs run off, the three turned around seeing Spike was crying less. Applejack approached and laid a hand on his head ruffling his hair, "There-there, sugarcube. They're gone now."

"Yeah. Nobody bullies our little buddy while we're around." Rainbow Dash said proudly, while thumb motioning to herself and the others.

"Thank you, Applejack, Rainbow, Pinkie." Spike said between small sobs.

Fluttershy comforted him, "Now-now, there's no need to cry anymore, Spike."

"Fluttershy's right, sweetie. Let me dry those eyes." Rarity said, as she took a handkerchief and wiped his tears away.

"Thank you." Spike thanked her, as Pinkie slid before him.

"Come on, Spike, where that's cute smile we all love?" she started tickling him.

Spike started laughing resulting in a smile growing on his face, "Pinkie, stop it!" he laughed.

"There it is!" Pinkie smiled, as the girls giggled.

Spike smiled, as Twilight helped him up, "Come on, let's go home." they started walking off.

As they walked, Pinkie still noticed Spike was still in discomfort from the confrontation with the dogs, "Don't worry, Spike. If those dogs chase you again we'll be here to protect you."


"Pinkie promise." she promised.

Rainbow Dash spoke up, "But you're a boy, Spike, so one day you'll have to start standing up for yourself."

"Rainbow's right, Spike," Applejack agreed, "We can't have ya being scared your whole life and needing others to protect ya."

"I know. I just hope one day I really can fend for myself." Spike said with doubt.

"We believe you can." Fluttershy assured him.

"Yeah. You just need to be confident in yourself." Twilight added.

"But if I do, does that mean you won't be with me all the time?" Spike asked in worry.

The girls stopped in place, while feeling surprised at Spike's question, until Pinkie spoke up, "Silly-willy! That'll never happen."

"We'll always be with you, Spike." Rarity promised.

"Now and Forever." Twilight nodded.

"Like apple and pie." A.J added.

Spike's dismal look shifted to excitement, "Really? Then, could you girls do the usual?" he requested.

The six looked at each other in confusion, before they giggled. Rarity and Fluttershy went to Spike standing on both sides of him, "Spike, I swear no matter how old you get..." Rarity began.

"You'll always be our spoiled little boy." Fluttershy finished, as the two simultaneously kissed his cheeks.

Spike's eyes lit up, and his smile brightened. Rainbow and Applejack looked at each other and smiled before taking Rarity and Fluttershy's place on both sides of Spike, "You're the only boy I'd ever do this to, Spike." Rainbow began.

"And we just love your reaction, buttercup." Applejack added, as the two delivered their kisses to Spike's cheeks, making him blush.

"Ooh, our turn, our turn!" Pinkie beamed, as she grabbed Twilight and brought her over to Spike.

"One, two, three..." the final two girls gave Spike their kisses to his cheeks.

"How was that?" Twilight asked.

Spike who's face was bright red, spoke sheepishly, "Just the way I like it."

"Ooh, group hug!" Pinkie cheered, as the six girls hugged him all around.

'And like they promised we were always together for six years now. But little did I know our friendship would start changing and turning into something I didn't think I was quite prepared for.'
