It has got to be up here somewhere…
It's been nearly an hour since you lifted up off the ground. The kind pony who lent you his hot air balloon said the trip wouldn't take long at all. Perhaps he was just trying to trick you, but then again the balloon he lent you was brand new and the residents of Ponyville all seemed so nice and friendly. Squinting up at the sky you search above you for your destination, but there were only small, wispy cirrus clouds as far as the eye can see. Sighing loudly, you lean on the edge of the basket and look down at the ground below. The view was incredible; everything looks so tiny from your balloon basket. The thought of being so high off the ground makes you pretty anxious.CCCCRAAACK!Seemingly out of nowhere comes the sound of a thunder clap. It was so loud that it left your ears ringing, and you struggle to see where in the world that noise came from. It was a bright, clear day and the pegasi had promised that rain wouldn't come until later that week, so there certainly weren't any cumulonimbus clouds anywhere nearby.
A few moments after the strike, your balloon suddenly lurches to the side as something whizzes past you at an unimaginable speed. You clutch onto the basket for dear life as it swings around uncontrollably and you can't help but scream at the top of your lungs. The thing, whatever it was, zipped back in an instant and helps to stabilize your craft. Now that it wasn't moving so fast, you are able to get a good look at the thing. It turns out that the "speed demon" was in fact a navy blue pegasus with a docked tail and a roached mane. He had a lightning strip in his mane and tail and sported golden, winged hoof covers. His eyes seemed to be made of liquid gold and he had a yellow shooting star with a lightning strike tail for a cutie mark on his flank. Your fright quickly turns to relief. Finally, somepony who could help you! He is certain to know which direction Cloudsdale lay.Yikes, sorry about that. What are you doing all the way out here? Are you lost? Oh, my name is Zephyr Force, by the way, but everyone calls me Zephyr. And who might you be?All you could do was blink. Jeez, does this pegasus talk fast!Hellooooo, are you deaf or something?His face was now centimeters from yours. Taking a step back, you respond by telling him your name and asking where Cloudsdale was.You're headed for Cloudsdale? Man, you must have a really bad sense of direction. It's about a mile west from here.You mumbled something about wind currents, but the lightning-lipped pegasus cut you off.Hey, I don't need excuses. Do you want me to take you there? Tie one of your spare ropes around me and your basket, and I can get you there in no time at all!!Zephyr seemed to have a hint of pride in his voice; it was as if he was just itching to show off his speed. You grab one of the spare ropes sitting in the corner of the basket and secure one end tightly to your craft and the other end around Zephyr's girth. You encourage him to take his time, but he just laughs and tells you to hold on before zipping off in the sky. Twenty terrifying seconds later, Zephyr finally slows down as you approach a vast cloud the size of a small city. You stare in awe as your eyes feast on the intricate statues sculpted from the cloud itself as well as the hundreds of pegasi zipping from cloud to cloud, playing amongst each other or running errands for Equestria's weather service.Awesome, isn't it? I couldn't wish for a better place to live. Anyways, I've got to go. If I'm going to be a member of the Wonderbolts one day, I'd better train so I can be the fastest pony there is!Before you could say goodbye, Zephyr had zipped off in the distance. If that pony flies any faster, his brains are going to come out of his ears!, you think to yourself. Chuckling at that thought, you begin your tour of the city in the sky.
