"Don't worry Angel! I'll go buy some more carrots! In the mean time, you can eat those apples I bought. I don't want food to go to waste, do you?" Flutter Shy said, packing up her saddle bag and collecting a few bits to go buy some carrots for her pet bunny, Angel.
It had been 2 years since her best friend Silver Dashers death, it really hurt her. But as time went on, she knew. She they were going to see each other again, which drove her onwards.
Angel stomped his foot in anger and hopped off to the fridge.
Angel sure is picky! Flutter Shy thought to herself, laughing a slight before she walked out of her front door to go to the cool morning of Pony Ville. Flutter Shy trotted over the dirt trail, which led to the towns market.
The market was rather busy for such and early time of the morning, pegaus flew across the skies, unicorns practicing spells and earth ponies just buying stuff.
Flutter Shy approached a stand with no hesitation. "I'd like a bunch of carrots please" Flutter Shy said digging through her saddle bag and brought out 6 bits.
"I'm sorry, speak up?" The cashier said, leaning his head closer to Flutter Shy.
"I'd like a bunch of carrots"
"I'd like a bunch of carrots!"
"I'D LIKE A BUNCH OF CARROTS"
The cashier rolled his eyes at Flutter Shy and brought out 6 carrots. Flutter Shy took them, and trotted off in the direction of home.
As she trotted to the nearest exit, she turned to her side to find a white unicorn with electric blue hair, she raised her horn, and a blast of energy exploded from her horn and shot in the direction of Flutter Shy.
Flutter Shy gasped as the beam of light hit her. Pain seared through Flutter's body, and she hit the ground with a dull thud. As she landed, she felt the breath knock out of her. She gasped for breath, but only finding to little. She opened her eyes a slight. Her vision blurred but she saw the white unicorn charge toward her.
"Are you alright!?" The white unicorn asked, concern and worry filled her voice.
"ohh..." Flutter Shy said quietly as she shut her eyes again, and drew her last breath. She slipped away from consiounse and fell away to a dizzy blackness that seemed to take over Flutter Shy's world.
Flutter Shy's life ends here. Only on Equestria, that is. But where her spirit is taken, is a place where she is very much alive.
Vinyl Scratch watched in horror as the yellow pegasus' breath drew shallower and shallower until the point where she stopped breathing. "no...no.. NO!!!!!!!" Vinyl screamed in terror, and tears streaming down her face endlessly. Vinyl squeezed her eyes, turned and ran away as fast as she could, tears streaming behind her. Vinyl didn't look back. Not that she ever would..
She exploded into her house which she shared with her special somepony, Octavia.
"Vinyl! What happened!?" Octavia called as she saw the messy DJ, covered in tears.
"I- I can't tell you..." Vinyl said, her voice cracking and an endless river of tears flowed more heavily.
"Are you ok!?" Octy asked wrapping her hoof around Vinyl
"I'm f-fine...." Vinyl said, burying her head in her hooves.
"No... Vinyl, tell me whats wrong. No secrets, remember?" Octavia gently reminded Vinyl.
"Octavia .... I'll tell you tommorow.. If that's ok.." Vinyl asked, getting to her hooves. Her knees shook brutally under her, but she forced them to walk to her bedroom where she laid on her bed.
One hour past... Two hours past... Three hours past... Four hours....
Vinyl sat on her bed, huddled at the edge watching time tick slowly before her eyes. Already, it was 4 pm.
Then a knock on Vinyls door set her off.
"AAAAHHHH" Vinyl screeched as Octavia opened her door, to check on the shaken unicorn.
"Vinyl? I brought you something" Octavia entered the room with a tray of food in her mouth. She carefully set it next to Vinyl.
"T-t-thanks..." Vinyl said, her voice shaking.
"I'd like to be alone" Vinyl finished, a slight more normally.
"Ok" Octy nodded before exiting the room.
Vinyl stared blankly at the food Octavia brought her. She levitated it with her horn and set them to to the ground. Vinyl wasn't hungry after what happened, seemingly 30 min ago.
Eight hours past and Vinyl stared out her window. With a quick glance, she looked at her clock
Damn it's late Vinyl said to her self, the first words thought for the whole day.
Then an idea popped into her head. She will pay like Flutter Shy. Vinyl would never forgive herself, after accedenly murdering another pony.
Vinyl creeped out of her room, checking to see if Octavia was awake. Nope. Octy found her, crashed on her bed.
Vinyl got out a pen and paper and wrote a note to Octavia. Then with a shaky hoof, Vinyl picked up a knife.
The sun's ray shone through Octavias eyelid. Octy opened her eyes and hopped out of bed. As she trotted to the kitchen, to prepare breakfast for her and Vinyl she noticed a piece of paper, folded neatly on the table.
Octavia looked around the room, making sure Vinyl wasn't nearby. Vinyl really did hate it when ponies went through her stuff.
Huh. It wasn't Vinyls after all. It was a letter from Vinyl to Octavia.
Octy unfolded the paper until it was unfolded completely.
Hey, It's Vinyl here, and I'd like to tell you something. Well, remember yesterday? What happened was unbearable, You see, if I told you I was afraid you might hate and hate and hate me. Well, actully I don't deserve to be liked anymore, after what I'v done. So go ahead and hate me. Here's what I did yesterday, at the market place, we were showing off magic, and I accedentley shot a beam at a yellow pegasus, and she... died.... But anyhow, living with the fact I accedntly killed somepony, it bothers me to much, I sent my soul to somewhere, meaning I'm not alive anymore. I'm dead now. I'm sorry Octavia, but you have to let me go..nopony wants a murder as a friend.... but just know, I love you..... goodbye....
Octavia stared at the sheet of paper, now covered by fallen tears of Octavia.
"My friend... killed herself... because... she accedently killed a....pegasus" Octavia said, her voice shaking and she set the letter down and let out a wail.
"WHY VINYL!? YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO DIE! IT WAS AN ACCEDENT!" Octavia cried, hoping her dear marefriends spirit heard her.
Octavia crashed to the floor, shaking hystericlly and crying her heart out. Her best friend. Her mare-friend. Is dead.
Octy shook her head, and laid on the now wet floor.
she didn't have to die Octavia told herself.
Octavia, unable to handle it anymore, closed her eyes and slept, a long sleep, dreaming of her and Vinyl.
