Well that went swimmingly, way to make a good impression there Iron.... Hell how am I going to apologize for that? I screwed up royally on that, hopefully I’ll find a way to fix it. I slowly walked towards the door, thinking on ways to repair the damage I've caused to my reputation. I swung open the door to find two people standing in the doorway, one with long braided blonde hair and one with voluminous purple.
“Where is she? What have you done with her?” They both screamed in unison. “And it’s always nice to be greeted in such a warm manner, honestly!” I sarcastically said to the two. They both rushed in and started to look around the place searching every crevice to make sure I wasn’t hiding their friend anywhere. I honestly couldn’t blame them, Rainbow never really talked about me around them. So when all of a sudden she leaves to come and see me, it doesn’t paint the best of pictures for a man in my case.
“Um, can’t I at least get your names?” I said as they slowly rose up from looking around my house. “Okay fine, ahm Applejack, ehn this here’s is Rarity,” said the blonde one in a very thick southern accent. “So you two are the famous Applejack and Rarity, huh?” I said, my voice heavy with fabricated enthusiasm. They both nodded suspiciously.
“You know Applejack I heard your farm makes the best apples in all of Ponyville!” I said trying to make nice. She blushed and dragged he foot across the floor, “Well I don’t know about the best,”
“Oh don’t be so modest! And Rarity, I heard you make some of the best gowns and suits in all of Equestria!” I said with a bow, she giggled in response. Okay good, maybe now they'll listen.
“Hey, can I actually ask you guys a favor? Applejack can you fix us some of your famous apple cider, more of you will be coming soon right?” I asked. She nodded with a proud smile on her face.
“And Rarity, can you make some fried eggs avec du fromage?” She nodded excitedly, ready to make a fancy dish. “All the supplies should be in the back, now go!” They ran off towards the kitchen, with as much glee as a they could hold. Good that should keep them busy.
I slowly walked over towards the den where Twilight was, she was just staring out of the window looking aimlessly towards the horizon. “Hey look, I just wanted to apologize for my behavior back there...” I began. She only raised her hand to stop me, “There is no reason to apologize, you did it with the best of intentions.” She said, taking an apologetic tone. She then turned to me and looked at me with...caring eyes. “You two must be really close if you’re willing to stand up for her like that.” She said as she took a seat.
“As close as friends could be, yeah.” I said taking my old seat. While saying this she only shook her head and laughed. I spoke again, “So you now know why she was so upset, yes?” She picked up the letter and tossed it over to me. I caught it and placed on the table, I didn’t need to look at it a second time, it had already caused enough problems. “So, who else is going to show up?” I said while I sipped on cold coffee.
“Well it sounds like Rarity and Applejack are already here,” When the words finally left her lips, we heard a loud crash from the kitchen along with several yelled obscenities. “Really? I hadn’t noticed. But on another note where do you think Rainbow would’ve flown too?” I asked. She just shook her head, “I really don’t know where she would go, maybe to Cloudsdale, maybe to her old training ground, the memorial.” I nearly choked on my coffee.
“Wait memorial? Where the hell is there a memorial in Equestria?” She slowly sat up and just shook her head. “You remember when the Wonderbolts were drafted?” “Yeah who doesn’t? The had a whole going away party and everything, what of it?” I asked
“Right after they were drafted they were put to use as Aerial bombers during the initial invasion of enemy territory, they were shot down...” she said sternly. “Well, how come the pubic wasn’t told?” I asked. Twilight just shook her head and said, “I have already said to much, I’ll just get Fluttershy to fly up and get her.”
And with a swift POP and a flash of light she was gone.
