Twilight and her friend had just arrived at the Crystal Empire. Her sister in law, Princess Cadence, and her brother, Shining Armor had invited the newly crowned princess and her friend to stay a week to relax. After the fiasco of getting her crown back, Twilight was ready to just spend this week to help her cool down. She had been getting so stressed lately, and it was nice to travel to somewhere else.
Twilight hopped off the Friendship Express, with Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, and Rarity.
Applejack opened the door from the other car, and exited with Fluttershy, Spike, Sweetie Belle, Scootaloo and Apple Bloom following. They'd brought the Cutie Mark Crusaders because Twilight had decided it would be nice for them to tag along.
"Twi, what do you suppose we'll be usin to take our luggage to the castle?" asked Applejack as she frowned at the bags everypony had brought.
Rarity exclaimed, "Applejack, the royal guards should send somepony to pick them up. You can't expect us to take them, not when we have the princess with us
"Your right, we couldn't do that." A voice behind Twilight said. She immediately whirled around to see a member of the royal guard smiling at her. That smile..
Twilight's mind clicked and his name smacked her in the face. Flash! Flash Sentry!
Flash smiled at Twilight and said, "It's good to see you again, Princess Twilight."
Twilight blushed, and replied quietly, "Same here, Flash."
Somewhere behind Twilight, she could hear Rainbow snickering, and it stopped with a small "Ow!" She guessed Applejack had smacked her friend to quiet her, and Flash noticed.
He smiled at the rest of the group, and said, "Princess Cadance and Shining Armor await you in the castle. Please follow me."
The group obeyed, and followed as the other members of the guard took their luggage.
Twilight tried to hide her blush, but at that moment, Rarity sidled up to her and whispered softly, "Your here for a week, Twilight. I suggest getting to know him better before you leave again.
