Umbra knew quite a lot of things, and was not often in need to think too much on a question before she could come with an answer, but this time was she silent for a good long while, her biting down on her lip and looking up in the roof as she found a proper answer.

Of course did she have a home, a few dozens of them or so actually, there was just that little thing about the homes that they weren´t really homes, they had just been places that she lived. She had loved to live in Mister Voice house, it having anything that she could wish for, it laying ready for her just around the corner even before she knew that she wanted it. But what there before had been a warm and good place was now dead and cold, at least the last time she visited it.

So to answer his question did she at first nod, then frown, and lastly shake her head. "It is a teeny tiny bit complicated," her not sounding sad at all as she said it, it was a fact, a pure fact and facts can´t be saddening, only annoying as now when they were complicated. "I lived until recently with one that I knew, but he ain´t no more. At least not that I know of." Her voice lowering itself as she said the last sentence, a little sliver of sadness showing now.

It was a risky move, especially since he clearly wanted her to go and had other things to think on, but what was the worst that could happen? So instead of laughing at any jokes, or even lift up in the corner of her mouth to a beginning of a little smile took she a step forth, her hand laying around his with the money, and closed it. Her now being as strong, or rather weak, as a normal mare at her age. "If you don´t want payment or tears for the milk then let the payment be for a soft bed and a roof over my head tonight."

Sugary looked plainly at Umbra the entire time she spoke, giving her his full attention to her situation. Again, she tugged at his heart, and again, it was for a different reason than the last and the one before.

He then looked slightly solemnly at her hand as she offered him the gold coins once more, and left him pondering in silence. Eventually he'd sigh a bit and look back up at her. "... Alright, you can stay... But I got issues to work out first, so I'd appreciate some cooperation for now... However, I still got more questions for you later about your circumstances... Now please follow me..." He took the money and placed it in a small flash of light into a small bag with runes strapped to his side, his Inventory Bag, and kept them safely within through compacting magic. He then took a few steps towards the exit of the kitchen, but would go no farther until she followed him as intended. He wanted to show her the damages to his locks first and foremost.

Issues, what ever could he mean by that? She had paid attention to how nervous he was, it being a bit infectious, and how his spell of water manipulation still was active. "Are they a shield or a dagger?" pondered she for herself as she slowly followed him to wherever he was going, the feeling of her magic being felt in the air yet again, a slight tinkering in the air, the hairs of the neck standing on it, it being stronger than before. Her eyes was darkening yet again, and a corona of silken shadows protruded from the silver inlay in her horn "Or are they something third, they not being of normal water." Asked she herself as she saw the Truth of his spell.

Normally would she not gather so much energy in her horn for such a simple cantrip, a fraction of a part of a portion being more than enough to give her the True sight, no she would not overtax her body for such a little thing. She could feel how the energy was too much for her, how it was bleeding from her horn, affecting the room they were in, the shadows in the corners of the room growing longer and deeper as well. It was from the wrong area that the magic was leaking out of her, so moving it to her hands, the energy looking as twin snakes slithering under her skin, began it to drip from her.

One would think that liquid shadow would make a sound when it hit the floorboards, but it did never make one, neither did they ever reach it. Just floating in the air, as if frozen by old man time himself did they soar after her. To begin with was it like seeing a picture of rain, all and nothing showing in all of the droplets, but as if a kid had found a marker and was making lines between the dots came a form forth. A delicate handle, a straight blade and a newly born moons delicate curve at the tip did they all form when they were done, the young mare gasping after air and almost falling to her knees when the spell was complete. He had his weapon ready if the "issues", and now had she one as well.

Before moving on further still, Sugary halted as Umbra's flow of Dark magic raised a few red flags, though he wasn't showing any signs of stopping her, being well experienced in telling the difference between an aggressive intent and a non-aggressive one by this point.

He was rather impressed as to how she manipulated the surrounding elements to her will, though was reasonably creeped out to say the least in the way her magic resembled blood far too much for his comfort within his home. Nonetheless, he was ultimately more concerned that she had nearly fallen to her knees... and for once, did not hesitate to move the Water orbs out of the way and surround them both with them afterwards as he held onto her left side to provide her with support. Regardless how edgy he still felt about her, she was now his guest and would be treated as such. "Umbra!? Miss Umbra, are you well? Can you stand without help?" Before continuing any further with the assessment of his airship, he would see to her well being first and foremost.

Sugary had not felt it before, him just touching her hand, but now that he was holding around her torso to steady her could he feel how cold she was, colder still than the cold evening air. Her body was also rather light, but that was not odd when one took her body into the picture, it not having much... "insulation" on it.

With how close they where to each other was it hard not to really get a look of her, taking in the more private details, even with Sugary being the gentleman that he was. Even if she had a grown woman's age, a grown woman's body and the words of a very grown woman did she not have all of the forms of one yet. Sure there was two small orbs that made her top bulge out, but there was not much to look at, and especially not enough to turn your head after on the street.

Feeling an arm around here stiffened she and took a surprised gasp as well, the touch of another still being a new thing for her. But slowly turning her head and seeing that it just was Sugary, her blades tip pressing gently towards his adams apple, did she relax, shoulders and blade as well finding a more relaxed position. "Yes," her raising herself up into her full height without waiting on him getting up as well, taking a step forward as well before she turned towards him, waiting for him to show the way. "Its just a little quirk with my magic. It is awful taxing without my usual help..." Her getting a small reminiscing smile on her lips before her lips again found the serious straight line that they usually were wearing.

"But thank you for asking... Now should we take a look on the locks?"

Having the blade awfully near his throat was jarring, but fortunately Umbra did not actually attempt to attack him and therefore a moment of aid was kept that way instead of a fight that might have turned ugly. He'd rather avoid that if he could, though he had to admit that her reaction was quick and efficient, and reasonably justified in the event she had been taught to not be allowed to be held undesirably. He'd ask her about her skill and abilities in due time.

Other than her skill, her appearance wasn't bad as far as he was concerned. She had a modest build in his eyes, but felt it complimented her exotic mixed genes well, though he would not voice that any time soon, especially since he had other worries. One of them being her body temperature on top of his current predicament. "Sure... By the way... You're not feeling ill or anything, are you? Your body feels cold. This isn't a high class hotel or anything, but I'll try and get you some medicine if you need it." For all he new, she was always that cold and was probably fine, or it was a byproduct of her magic. Either way, if she was feeling well in the end, he would not push the issue too far.

Other than the question, he made sure to walk the not so long distance around the hallway to one of the damaged doors. He then pointed at the damage done, and asked her the next question. "And you're sure you have no idea who would do this or why?"

It was the light playing tricks with the eyes, it must had been, it could only have been. For such a hue of blue could not turn into such a warm red by embarrassment alone. "It is a condition," the words being said with a voice so low that the words was hard to catch in between the sound of her cloth moving and the ship as well.

"Who, yes. Someone that wanted in or out, not caring if they left any marks. So someone in a hurry. Someone that was scared for something, something that hunted them most likely, making it want to flee." Said she while poking at the broken lock with a finger, not using any magic to see the Truth. "Someone that wasn´t with a too pure a conscience since it fled as it sensed you..." first now did she realise that he properly hadn´t meant his question quite that literary.

"Ohh! You mean if I know who there did this? This being an accusation aimed towards me because you found me outside your ship, and then inside of it. You thinking that I am an accomplice or something similar. No, no I don´t. But it fled that away as it ran," says she while pointing towards where the spacey ghost of grey had ran to, the trail of its weapon, it not being magic, not at all, but something else, a special light of sort, that was almost just as easy as magic for her to sense. A thin trail still hanging in the air.

Sugary thought for a moment that Umbra's head was about to pop with how red her cheeks got, but then assumed it had something to do with her apparent condition since she seemed relatively alright thus far.

His ears then flicked a little as she initially answered his question a little too well, though despite her own correction, he figured her whole assessment might have a deeper meaning to it. "... You can tell the actual behavior of the one responsible...?" He looked over in the direction she was pointing, knowing well enough himself that it was the estimated direction of where he saw the invader head off to with his own eyes. "Okay... There's clearly very different ways the two of you chose to approach my airship... So I'm gonna trust you in that you don't know each other... That said, as much as I'd like to investigate who or what did that, it's getting late and I'd rather not go chasing after something fast out of curiosity... But I do intend to report this to the local authorities later..." He then looked straight at her quietly for a moment before speaking again. "That reminds me... You still haven't told me why you were hugging my ship earlier... Also, are you hungry?"

"No, magic, no," answers she while leaning up against the door, her hand drawing small scribbles over the broken lock with a finger, the depth of her blades darkness fading a little bit as she did so. "Or rather, I do not know it, but with logic can I give a good guess, and thanks but no thanks. My biscuits was more than enough for me."

The lock being whole again as she pushes herself away from the door, it having repaired itself in a small flash of blackness, as a little candle had been lighted, its flame being dark instead of bright. "You do know that you are asking quite many questions, don´t you mister Sugary?"

Sugary looked at Umbra as she actually fixed the lock back to new on his door. While it was possible for him to make some repairs on his own with tools and his own magic, he wasn't expecting such a flawless result from her in such a short time as was evident in his smile and grateful expression. "... Oh, wow... Thank you! That looks great...! Also, I'd like to think that I have every good reason to ask questions about unexpected visitors... But tell you what. For fixing this door out of the two that were broken, I'll take you to see the engine room. If the magic you were hugging my ship for is what I think it is, I think I can show it to you first hand... Now please follow me to the engine room, but please mind what you touch and be careful not to trip on anything. Don't wanna find ourselves sideways all of a sudden..."

Urging her to follow him, he'd take her to see the engine, the runic conduits, the Magicite, and most important of all, the heart and soul of the Black Mambo, the powerful Levistone.

As ordinary people hadn´t to see the wellspring to see the river, neither had Umbra to actually see the heart of the ship to see its magic. Not that she wasn´t honoured over being allowed to see it, her knowing all too well how private the heart of ones home was. She wasn´t used to be allowed to touch anything private in others homes, the milk not being magical so that was one of the exceptions to that rule.

Right now was there no big need for the blade that was in her hand, but she did not dismiss it just yet, her not knowing if she was able to bring it forth quickly enough if something happened. So she did just let go of it, the blade of shadows following her like it was one, it hanging onto her from her hip as an extra layer of cloth. "That was not really anything. Light took the parts away, so bringing it back with shadows was not hard. The trick is just to know how to coax it into doing it." It was easy to hear on her tone that the praise for her work flew right over her head, her talking as if she had answered an ordinary question, following him as a student would a teacher on a tour at the local museum.

Sugary, after noting Umbra's symbolic and literal use of her spell, began to show and explain the different parts of the engine and what basic motor functions they served, the properties and importance of the Levistone, Magicite and how he slowly made them out of raw materials such as superheated rocks or raw crystals to then imbue them with magical properties and have them serve as a heat source for powering the Magitek engine that was a mix of mechanical steam power and magic, the purpose of the runic root-like conduits all throughout the room and within the ship's walls, and last but not least, some basic safety guides for good measure. "And that's it for now... I'd say it's time for me to see the local authorities about that invader. But first, I got two questions... Would you like to accompany me to make the report? And... Could you, um... fix my other door and lock? I'd really appreciate it. I'll even accept it as extra payment for your stay if you want to spend more time in my ship. Not to mention it just plain saves me time on repairs." If she truly did want to fix the other door, he'd be ready to escort her, so all she had to do was follow him and do so.

Maybe was it not needed for her to see this heart of the ship, but it was rather interesting to see instead of just sensing, the folds of concentration that was on Umbras frown telling so much as she took as much information as she could, sucking it to her like a sponge.

She had heard about magical constructs like this ship. But normally were they big creatures imbued with magic used for many a task, and never a mode of transportation, and she had never ever heard or thought up the idea to imbue a ship in this way, making it soar though the sky with new found earth pony technological steam marvels and the crystals and runes of old alike. There was something odd and magical about it, like the whole room had been pulled out of a fairytale, nay more a bored colts daydream. Not that that made it less interesting, on the contrary.

As the "tour" was over did she just shrug as to answer Sugary, her mind still categorising all this new information, many a question lining up in a neat queue waiting all on the next good opportunity to be asked and answered. "I would rather stay. I do not know who there did it, so I can´t tell them anything more than you. So I can really not see why I should follow." That she wasn´t good in crowds, or happy for the zebras that he called authorities was a whole other thing, one that she kept to herself. "And I will fix your other lock before you return... It is just odd that who ever there broke in had to break two locks, why not flee though the same place that you have entered? This is just messy, making more evidence after all."

"I see. And that's alright. I'm gonna trust you to stay here by yourself then, and would be very grateful if you really did fix the other lock. I can promise you that much... Before I leave though, I must ask you... If I told you that I intend to leave you on this ship as it floats high in the air for safety, would you be alright with it? I think I saw you on a rooftop, so you don't seem to be afraid of heights, but I can understand if you say no."

Hearing the question did Umbra tilt her head from one shoulder to the other, not really getting why that should be a problem at all. Being high up in the air, maybe even up into the sky would it just mean that she would be alone, none being able to reach her, a good situation to be in as she planned to soon get some sleep, the night getting older and older with each passing moment.

"Not at all. Why? Should the height be a problem? I mean, it is the depth that can hurt one if accidents happens, not height after all," the words coming from her mouth as the purest wisdom, it being technically true, but then not again. "It is your ship, so if you want to do that to make sure that the intruder can´t return would that be for the best."

Her slowly beginning to turn around, wanting to find the other broken lock on her own, the wander lust having awoken a bit in her. She would find it sooner or later after all, and looking around would properly show her a place to sleep comfortably as well. "Ohh and a little thing of my own, don´t be surprised if you can´t find me when you return to the ship. I will be here, just asleep. And I like my privacy as well as my beauty sleep."

((Observation deck))

"Heh... It's not the fall, it's the sudden stop... Yes, I suppose I am well acquainted with that fact... But while it is my ship, you are still my guest as well. If I can avoid upsetting you or making you feel uncomfortable, I will... But since it's a non-issue as you claim, please follow me. I want to show you your room, then the other damaged door, and finally head to the bridge to make the arrangements..."

As told, Sugary soon escorted Umbra and showed her a simple unused room with two twin-sized beds. She'd quickly notice that the room was right in front of his own and very close to the bathroom and kitchen as well. Afterwards, he'd take her up to the bridge, but made sure to point to the other broken lock on the deck door before going up to the bridge with her. "Well, we're about to float in the air. Figured I'd show you this way rather than just do it while you were downstairs. Less surprising that way..."

He got onto the controls and, with some concentration on a couple large runic rods on the sides of the main controls, he poured a little of his own magic to activate the effects of the Levistone down below. Almost immediately, Umbra might feel the the airship gain much more life with magic as the entire ship slowly began to defy gravity as though it weren't there. Such was the power of the magical stone that even without actually turning on the engines for the propellers, it would still take to the skies as it rose several feet, then meters, and then many yards above the ground and remaining smooth and level, never rocking back and forth or side to side. Once they were at least 50 feet in the air, he halted and made adjustments to keep the ship right where it was as he spoke to her again with a smile. "You sure you're comfortable with this height? Keep in mind, I don't intend to leave it like this all the time."

Upsetting? Uncomfortable? Hearing the words went Umbras head from one shoulder to the other, a frown playing on her forehead. It was therms that she knew about, but like cities that one only have heard about and never visited themselves was it not something that Umbra could say she knew about.

Just as Umbra had found something to say to Sugary about what he just had said, to come with questions about what he had meant opened he the door to the room that was going to be hers for the next little while. Seeing the big bed went her frown away, a big smile playing on her lips as she giggled with delight, she knew that she was a guest and that there was more to see and do, but right now did she make him wait. Seeing the big soft fluffy bed with a real mattress and real pillows and a whole blanket all for her self, with magic like hers was self control very important and a very big part of her life, but seeing such luxury just for her was there a part of her that simply went tick instead of tock, something that swigged even if she fought with all her being for it to swagged, and with all her speed ran she at the bed, throwing herself at it and flopped flat with her whole length on top on it, making pillows fly off the bed and the blanket to to rise and then fall around and hide her under it.

"Sorry... the, well, the temptation was just... too big" came Umbras rather small and rather embarrassed voice as she tumbled around under the blanket to find a way out, her head being the first thing to peek out before she sat herself up and made the blanket glide slowly down. "Living on the street... There ain't that many clean white blankets on the street as one would think." Explained she while she slowly made the bed nice anew before she brushed her skirt free from specks of dusts that wasn´t there, coughing a little bit as well after she was done and ready to follow after him.

While the young mare had been amazed by the heart of the ship and dazzled by the bedroom seemed she rather unaffected by the whole act of making a tons heavy and two story big vessel soar 50 feat up in the air. "And you should keep in mind that I don't intend to leave myself here like this all the time." Her having turned her back on him and was about to find the second broken lock to repair it as he spoke, answering him over her shoulder.

During the time Umbra had chosen to look at her room and test out her bed, Sugary couldn't help but chuckle lightheartedly at her jovial take on the tour with it, but very quickly had a more stoic stare as she mentioned about her life on the streets. He'd be sure to remember to try and do something about that if he got the chance...

Once the ship was in place, and she set out to do a task, he'd make sure to get one final word in as well before he took off. "... I understand. Just know you're welcome here in the meantime. I'll be right back, so... Later!" And with that, he concentrated his magic as he jogged towards the wall, focused on his magic further to teleport himself in a flash of light past it and over to the outside, and then with the very magic he had, glided down to the ground in what looked like a graceful high jump before he landed, and made his way to the local police station to report his own findings as if what he did was normal to him...

Umbra did not need to see the flash of Sugary's teleportation to know that he had just left his ship, the magic being strong enough for her to feel even now as she was entering the room that she could call hers once more. She did not flop down on the bed yet again because she was lazy or forgotten the job she had promised to complete, neither crawl around under the blanket, nor use her magic to throw a pillowcase over each window to block out the moonlights first beams that had just begun to peek in, and at last poke the rune that controlled the light with a now naked pillow, however not with her first shot as she had expected in her second attempt.

She had not just closed the room off to all the light she could find to sleep or lounge around or just snuggle all alone with herself... okay she did maybe snuggle a little bit before she went to work, stretching out, just feeling the softness of the cloudness, letting it all soak in slowly with closed eyes, not at all almost snoozing away with a happy sigh of pleasure laying there in the midst of it all before her eyes opened wide. Her eyes were so wide that they would have turned the white side out on most, but on hers was it two orbs of darkness, two small bottomless pools that was darker still than the sea of blackness that the room was, her eyes overflowing with the power from within her, dripping down herself, down onto the bed.

From the pure essence of darkness falling as rain from her eyes formed two puddles, one at each of her hoofs. As the pools slowly grew grew they form as well as size, them ending up as two small figures, each only being one hoof tall, figures that walked on their back legs, looking much as ponies, but with no heads to sit on their shoulders, it having no ears, no eyes, no mouth, no nose to be found on their bodies. But while they had nothing to hear with, to see with, to taste with, were they still attentive towards Umbra, them being done when they began to crawl up Umbras legs, to stand on top of her knees and kiss the last tears away with mouths they didn't had. It would properly had taken her less time to just go out and do the job herself, the process of forming her two homunculi and giving them life having eaten up the better part of an hour.

Making a picture in her head of the broken lock, it being repaired in front of her eyes sent she the first of the two away, her sealing the orders with Umbra laying her forehead against the little figures shoulder and speaking an ancient word of power. The other being sent to sit up over the door to the room, its legs splitting in half and then again and once more until it looked like an insect that shouldn't be and began to crawl up the wall, it retaining its original form when it was at a place it could sit, waving its legs too and fro as it looked over the room as ordered.

Umbra herself went over to the other bed, taking pillow and blanket from it before she sneaked down under it. A bed was lovely soft and fluffy, good to lay on and read, but to sleep on! She would twist and turn, waking up each other minute fearing that she would sink down and be eaten up. It took not long before a snore could be heard, even if the mare would deny such a thing.

And while Umbra slept a dreamless sleep ran the little man trough the halls of the ship, him making exactly as much sound as the mouse he had taken the form off, him no longer black as the night as he had been in Umbras room, his form now red, slowly growing duller with each step. From the hue of a fresh rose to that of copper to at last being the murky dull brownish red of rust, the scent of iron following in its wake as it went unseen to completes its life's mission.

Sugary had caught a bit of attention to himself among some of the Zebrafricans once he landed, but was otherwise not that remarkable to them aside from the fairly obvious fact he was a foreigner. Once he got to the police station, it was a bit hard to get someone to make the proper report for him due to the varying languages, so he took longer than needed to make his report and alert the authorities of a being that hid in the trees closest to the town. He would have told them about the damages to his ship, but decided against it as he really didn't want cops to get in there, and just made it look like the being seemed threatening.

He'd eventually make his way back, and would also use a spell to float right back up onto his ship like it was natural to him as he did so, but that was nothing to the real surprise of him finding that the door was actually being fixed when he got to the deck... by a bloody hommonculi creature all over it. He thought he could smell the odd stench of blood from them with his nostrils, experience in combat helping him distinguish the smell better than average, and definitely knew there was a magical nature to them, as well as the fact they felt similar to Umbra when he got a bit closer to see what it was doing and what it looked like. He was fascinated to be sure, but he was also feeling creeped out, confused, grateful, and yet certainly puzzled for as to why he had Umbra personally fix the other door, while this one had that thing instead. "... You... Are you... Umbra's...? Why... Why do it so differently this time...?" He half spoke to himself, and the creature itself as well as he just wasn't quite sure what to make of it right now since it did, in fact, do what he requested Umbra to do. So he couldn't detest it, but it still made him a bit uneasy. "So, so strange... What's Umbra doing anyway...?"

The homunculus paid no attention to Sugary that was towering over it, the magical creature just working tirelessly at its job. It repaired the lock in a most unusual way, it half puking half ripping parts of its body loose to use as material to repair the lock, it ending up just as new, if not even better. The mysterious metal it had added shining like polished silver against the parts of there was of dull dark steel.

Now that its task was completed seemed it a bit smaller than when Sugary first had seen it, the flutter of wings drawing the stallions eyes away, a seagull landing on his deck. Drawn by what there seemed to be a pray did it half jump half flap over to the homunculus, its hide now terracotta red with a matching clay like texture as well, its form slowly going from that of a rodent to that of a spring, the seagull still seeing it as pray.

With the bird poking the spring poked it back, jumping over the bird with its gathered tension, embracing the birds body with its. It was not a pleasant sight to see the bird slowly shrinking into a dense ball, neither was it pleasant to hear the macabre music of the rattling bones, them breaking witch crinches and crunches, snips and snaps, one by one until not a single one was left. In an explosion of feathers spat the creature half the bird out, it now looking like a pony once more, or rather a very odd bird, the skull of the seagull and some of its bones now being don as clothing, as well as a single lonesome feather that stuck out as if placed behind an ear that wasn't there.

Now at about the same size as before the attack could the little man return to its mistress, but not before it had closed the door, it waiting as long as it had to until Sugary was inside before it went home.

While he did realize a bird landed on his deck, Sugary was more interested in the finished result of the repairs, eventually tentatively passing his fingers over the silvery color metal with curiosity. He would, of course, turn to see what the creature was up to as it was then caught by the bird... only to then jump at it and crush it down with its fell powers and make clothing out of the bird's gore that now lay mangled nearby. So long as Sugary stared, his mind was reeling with many questions at the display. "Okay, this is NOT normal! I know Dark magic, and that's not it! That's outright Demonic or Chaotic! What the heck kind of magic lessons did Umbra get...!? Is she a Demon...!?"

Having been one to fell quite a number of monsters in his own right, he had every reason to remain wary over Umbra, and her minion as he watched it move about his deck back to the entrance, the sight of the half eaten and crushed bird testing his resolve as far as seeing gut wrenching things went with a lightly scrunched nose.

However, he was also experienced enough to know when something was hostile and when it wasn't. The creature had made no move against him personally, and did fix his door in Umbra's place. He also noticed that the creature oddly stood by the door waiting for him to pass by. Sugary, as a magical being, knew when to give proper courtesy and respect to other magical beings well enough, and so he somewhat reluctantly bowed lightly in gratitude, and walked in as calmly as he could past it. "... Thanks..."

He'd then seek out Umbra herself, wanting to see how she was doing as well as try to get a chance to speak to her about the creature she had in the ship... assuming said creature didn't eat Umbra or something, he thought, as he kept his senses sharp for anything else like the creature that fixed his other lock. "Umbra...?" He'd try to call out to her gently as he neared her room.

While the small man only would reach Sugary to his gaskin if it could stand still for long enough to be measured against the pony was it surprisingly fast, its legs going up and down like pistons, its new clothing rattling softly about as it was worn into place with the hastily pace.

As the two of them turned down the corridor where the bedrooms laid were there still no reply to the stallions name calling, his ships sleepy squeaking of old wood setting and dull twangs of metal bending in the cold wind being the only thing his sharp senses detected.

That wasn't until Sugary was a few pony lengths away from the guest door that he heard something new, the clay man already being over at the door by then. It pushing with all its might to opening it, the wood groaning as it was pushed just a tiny bit agape so it could escape trough before closing it again right behind it, nothing but the deepest shadows of the night to be seen in the crack between door and doorframe while it was there.

Sugary followed the curious creature as well as he could, but it moved a lot faster inside than he expected it to, and just barely caught glimpse of it as it went into Umbra's room. He now stood before the door, slightly open, teasing him to peek inside. He did recall that she said she liked her privacy and beauty sleep, so he was now stuck between sating curiosity of the unusual magic coming from the next room, or just leaving things be... He decided she had given him no reason to be overly suspicious of her, and respect her wishes as he went to the kitchen instead to sit down and have a snack as he contemplated about his unusual guest as he warily stared at her door from there.

Having gotten more or less used to sleep trough the sounds of the street, the Zebrican nightlife being a tad more lively than the Equestrian one, slept Umbra calmly under the bed that had been her given. Her not getting the least disturbed by the door as it opened and closed, nor by the sounds of the ship that was twisting around in its sleep.

As a foal did she lay in the fetal position, her body being wrapped up in the blanket from head to toe, even her horn being hid away under the soft fabric. The soft pillow laying half in her arms, half under her head, a small pool of dribble staining the pillow in front of her mouth. One would find her a heart warming sight, the paradigm of a good and long night's sleep...

If it wasn't for the small minor detail that she hadn't moved a single muscle the last quarter of an hour that is, and that there on the pool of drool slowly was beginning to form a layer of frost on it. From her horn had the slow march of the ice begun. An alien aura, silver of hue, it twinkling as the nights first star, sprouting forth with no sign nor warning on the very tip of her horn as she slept her dreamless sleep, not even that waking the mare. Slowly had it spread, dripping down her horn, using its groves and gravity as guidelines as to where there twinkling aura, and with that the ice, should be spread, and spread had it.


The guardian guarding from its watch post on top of the door had not felt nor seen the wild magic, its single task being to watch the door and door alone and nothing else, and thus had it watched the door, the door alone and nothing else. As the repair golem returned could it straight away feel that something was wrong in the room, that there was something odd hanging in the air, that there was something in the room that simply not should be there. Not knowing what to do now that its order was complete ran it straight to its mistress site for guidance, it being much annoyance of the guardian golem that had to close the door after its "brother", an ancient and rather rude hand gesture being thrown towards its "brother", while still having its eyes it didn't had on the door that is.


Getting closer and closer to the Mistress of all knew the bone clad golem that there was something wrong, it not getting any reaction as it knelled by Her marvellous side. Neither got it any reaction when it dared dared to do the sin of acting without permission nor order, it touching the great sorceress softly on the knee to announce its return, the soft caressing touch becoming the greater sin against all dark arts when it grew to a prod, and a cardinal sin against all unholy thing that was created in Her name as she poked Her! As none of the sins awoke any reaction, the burning words of "Shame on You!" nor the Disapproving Click of Tongue, or gasp, worst of all, The Shaking of The Godly Finger in a Disapproving Way!, began the golem to panic, its form taking that of a rat once more as it hid in the mane of the Goddess Creator, it stopping abruptly up when it touched the frozen strands of hair, them not hugging around him in the calming way, but broke asunder instead!

First now did the repair golem sense the aura, the light that was a mocking insult towards All Mistresses Darkness! Throwing itself over the light tried he to eat it all up, his body growing with each bite he took, with each sliver of energy he stole from star. It keeping on growing, loosing shape, loosing consistency,growing and growing until its being was stretched taut like a balloon that was just about to explode, but even were the star burning, its light shining trough the golems thin or so thing body. One more bite and it would explode for sure... but it was for Mistress, for the Shadow Princess, so with all its will and being took it the biggest bite it could and exploded in her name!


With the sound like one smashing a balloon made of baked terracotta , with the sound of an glacier complaining creaks as spring beings to split it asunder, with the sound of a star being extinguished in the blink of an eye, and with the sound of a teen filly smacking her somewhat padded forehead against a bed frame of solid wood weighing dozens of times her weight. With the sound of all that was a giant mess made as a lot of things happened at once.


From atop the door sat the stolid guard still at his post, his waving legs staying still for a moment since it had to concentrate about doing the complicated task of both keeping the door under observation in case something happened AND shaking bits and pieces of ice and his brother out of his body at the same time, a most taxing and complicated task indeed.
