What You Want and What You Need - Ch. 1"Afternoon everypony"What You Want and What You Need - Ch. 1 by BobtheLurker
The red stallion was greeted by a chorus of shouts as he entered the bar. After a long hard week of bucking and hauling apples, it was finally Friday night, thank Celestia. It was really Big Macintosh's only time to unwind and maybe talk to friends or just contemplate the universe. His own small universe, that is. Being a dedicated farm pony, he rarely got the chance to socialize with other ponies not counting the rare instance of small talk while making a delivery in town. This bar, on this night of the week was the entirety of his social life.
He slipped off his yoke and set it by the door, turning around to smile at everpony before making his way over to the bar, nodding in greetings at those he passed by. Berry Punch, Lucky, Caramel and his mare of the week, all the regulars. Everypony turned back to their own conversations as he plopped down on his regular stool at the corner of the bar.
"What's shakin' Mac?" The bartender asked with a grin.
