A large grin pulled itself across Chenoa’s beak as the butterfly fluttered a little closer before eventually coming to a rest on Fluttershy’s nose. The image of the insect sitting on her mother’s face she found rather comical. She laughed uproariously in her high-pitched baby laugh, ultimately causing the dragon holding her to chuckle.
Hearing Chenoa laugh never failed to deliver a warm feeling the hearts of Fluttershy and Smokey. The pegasus smiled kindly, a rosy tint blooming on her cheeks.
“Now what’s gotten our baby so tickled?” she giggled softly.
“Your little butterfly friend has landed on your nose, my dear,” the dragon chuckled, finding it quite amusing himself.
“I know,” the buttercream mare giggled a second time. “I just… didn’t expect her to start laughing like that is all.”
“I must admit… it is ju

Chapter Twenty-Nine: First Encounters of Spring
Placing the baby griffon in Smokey’s lap, Fluttershy flitted up to her bathroom and returned with some cotton balls, bandages, antiseptic, and antibiotic cream gathered in her forelegs and a pair of tweezers held between her teeth. Dabbing a cotton ball in the antiseptic with the tweezers, she raised it up to one of the wounds on his lower lip.
“This will sting a bit,” she warned through her teeth.
The dragon nodded. Taking a deep breath, he prepared himself for the worst. As soon as that alcohol-soaked cotton ball touched one of his pinprick wounds, he flinched with a slight whimper, but he per

Chenoa thoroughly enjoyed the flight home - her large amber eyes alight with bliss and the corners of her beak stretched out in a grin as she let out mirthful squeals every now and again.
Smokey was waiting eagerly - yet patiently - for the return of Fluttershy and the griffon. Seated cross-legged at a “safe” distance from the fireplace, he nervously watched Angel throw a fresh log onto the bed of half-charred wood when the mare and baby entered the cottage. Clamoring to his feet, he gazed at her with, expectant eyes as he awaited for her to fill him in on what the locals thought about a dragon accompanying them. Yet… he was half-dreading it.
The winged pony sighed as she lowered her eyes to the floor.
“You were right. It… went about as well as I expected.” She then lifted her head and steeled her gaze. “B

Though Smokey didn’t mind the cold much, he was glad he had a set of winter clothes to wear. His silvery breath drifted skyward as he exhaled on a content sigh before following Fluttershy towards their destination.
“How many ponies usually show up for Winter Wrap Up?”
“Oh, pretty much the entire town gets involved,” she replied nonchalantly, hugging Chenoa tighter as the baby pressed her body into the pegasus’ torso. “We split the ponies up into three groups - plant, animal, and weather. Only pegusi are on the weather team, and they’re responsible for moving the clouds to warm everything up and melt the snow and ice. The plant team gathers up the snow, clearing the fields, and planting the seeds. Finally, we, the animal team, wake up the animals from hibernation, clean out their homes, and provide new nests for the birds migrating back from the south.
