I once again woke up in the well-furnished room. Dazed, I tried to remove myself from where I lay, only to find 2 set of pure alabaster hooves wrapped around my waist. My eyes followed the hooves to their owner, who lay asleep next to me. Deciding to not disturb her, I tried my best to slowly, and begrudgingly cuddled back up into her soft, warm embrace. With my eyes still open, I saw that where the cave entrance would be, was a wall of wood, painted with a golden hue, with small pink lining the edges of the floor. There was also what appeared to be a rather fancy door, with a medium window in the middle of it. As I squinted my eyes to see outside, I saw half of the starry sky.
Realizing it was probably the middle of the night, I saw many reasons to go back to sleep. In the final minutes of my consciousness, I though why this mare would decide to cuddle against me. Memories flooded back into mind, remembering my first kiss, the shock of it, and then passing out. I craned my neck towards the sleeping mare, which now bore a smile, and the occasional small twitching of the front hooves. She must be having a beautiful dream.
Getting back my train of thought, I resumed thinking why she would sleep next to me. I tried shifting a little, only to realize that most of my body was lined in gauze. Giving myself a quick look-over, I saw that all my wounds where covered in gauze, possibly treated for infections due to a small sting every time I shifted a bit. Recalling the moments before the kiss, I realized I probably bloodied her only bed. Looking around I saw that the sheets where white as snow, and no blood was to be found. This mare, although a bit odd, had taken a random stranger into her home, cave, living quarters, whatever this place was. She also took care of said stranger, asking for nothing in return. Ignoring the kiss, it would leave her body ridden with guilt to just leave. No, she planned to return the favor, for the deeds this kind mare had so unselfishly preformed would not go unnoticed.
As her last seconds among the awake slowly slipped by, she unconsciously pushed herself deeper into the mare’s warmth, her own face twisting into a smile, as she fell into the realm of the sleeping.
I awoke to the feeling of sunlight on my muzzle, now noticing a small simple sunroof at the top of the cave, letting in trace amounts of sunlight. It was enough to wake one up, but not enough to temporarily blind. Next, I noticed the four alabaster hooves where still around me, hugging tighter than before. When I tried to move, or squirm, I felt them get even tighter, reducing my ability to move drastically. The breathing pattern of the mare behind me grew heavier. Noticing she was waking up, I futilely tried to feign unconscious.
"That only works so many times before I notice." Said the mare behind me. Well buck, so much for that plan. Onto plan two!
"Why did you kiss me yesterday!?" I screamed at her, startling her.
"It was my first! I was saving it for someone of my kind, a king, or something, not for it to be taken by force without hearing protest!" I huffed, cheeks slightly tinting a soft pink.
"Well, I'm sorry about that, really am, but it told me to do it, and it seemed like a good idea at the time." said the mare, with a hint of remorse.
Like the old saying, take one pace forward, two paces back. I was now confused, again. Who was she referring to? Come to think of it, I vaguely remember her also talking to herself, having arguments seemingly with thin air.
"Who do you keep referring to? There is no one there!" I loudly said.
"You can't see it?" she said with curiosity.
"Of course I can't, you can't see what does not exist." Annoyance laced my voice. Silence hung in the air, as she looked at said air, oddly nodding and shaking her head every so often. As she came to a conclusion, with a final nod of her head, she looked at me.
"This may seem weird, but fighting it will be painful, so don't resist." What is she talking about? Why is she moving closer to me? Why does she have a grin on her face, yet sorry eyes? Why is her horn getting dangerously close to min-oh dear. Is she really going to do that?! I tried backing up, only to feel a sharp shock on my flank. She erected a barrier, making it impossible to escape. I quickly looked at my flank, hoping no burn marks or the matter appeared. Finding none to my relief, I turned my head around, only for it to meet the mares amethyst eyes, and horn. Blush having intensified, I silently prayed she would not begin to rub them together. A quick movement from her next sent waves of pleasure down me, and then nothing. Letting out a moan of disappointment, I opened my eyes, only to find a meadow. Soft, vibrant green grass housed flowers of all kinds and a small crystalline lake sat in the middle of it all.
My eyes finally set on the only oddity, a small pedestal, with what looked to be able to seat 3, sat near the lake. Two figures lay on it, looking over the lake. One of them I recognized as the mare I met, another being completely foreign. I slowly walked up to them, careful not to make any sudden noises. The closer I got, the more details appeared. It seemed to be a gender less alicorn, a coat of blue adorned its body. When I finally got close enough I saw a mixture of my nemesis's mane color, and with what appeared to be constellations of stars in its mane. It looked like an exact copy of celestial, just a shade of a dark blue.
"There you are! I was wondering if you would take forever walking over here, but I guess not." The mare said. I looked to see of the other being would say anything, but it just stared, silently judging me. After a few awkward minutes of silence, the being, with an ethereal voice, finally stated something that made me shiver a bit.
