Fluttershy awoke to a rabbit jumping up and down on her bed, to which he had a very frustrated look on his face. When Fluttershy finally looked at him he pointed to his mouth indicating he was hungry.
"Oh are you hungry?" Fluttershy asked as she was getting out of bed. Angel hopped off the bed and over to the door nodding his head. "I'll be down in a sec to make you something." Fluttershy said with a smile as she made her bed.
Fluttershy walked down the stairs with Angel in front of her. As she went into the kitchen Angel hopped on the counter and watched Fluttershy as she prepared his breakfast. Fluttershy made his normal breakfast that consisted of only lettuce. As she set it down in front of him she prepared for it to be thrown at her face, but to her surprise, he was eating it! No more than a few seconds later someone knocked on Fluttershy's door.
Who could that be? Fluttershy thought. She went over to her door and opened it up barely enough to see who it was. When she realized who was at the door, she opened it more and greeted the pony.
"Oh, hi Twilight. What are you doing over here so early?" Fluttershy asked.
"I just thought I'd come visit since I haven't been over in a while. I was also wondering if you'd want to come have a sleepover at my house tonight. Could you make it?" Twilight asked smiling at Fluttershy.
Fluttershy smiled "Oh I would love to! If... That's alright with you of course." Fluttershy said as she hid behind her pink mane, embarrassed.
Twilight was ecstatic. She'd always wanted Fluttershy to come sleepover. Especially after what happened. "Okay then! Come over tonight then." She said as she walked back in the direction of her tree house.
Fluttershy closed the door as Twilight walked away, and turned around to see Angel done with his breakfast. Throughout the rest of the day Fluttershy tended to her animals until it was time to go to Twilight’s house.
Fluttershy stood outside the tree house and knocked. After a few seconds Spike opened the door. "Hi Fluttershy!" Spike said as he gestured for her to come in.
"Fluttershy you made it!" Twilight excitedly said as she walked down the stairs. "Spike, will you please make us some tea?"
"Sure thing, Twilight!" Spike said running into the kitchen.
"It's been a while since I've seen you. What have you been up to?" Twilight asked with a smile, looking Fluttershy in the eyes.
Fluttershy looked up at Twilight "Oh, just taking care of the animals like always. I never get out much considering nopony really visits me." She looked down with an upset look. Twilight went over and gave her a comforting hug.
"Well you're always welcome over here if you feel lonely or anything, but why doesn't anypony visit you? Or, why don't you go visit somepony?"
"Everypony is usually busy; AJ with her farm, Dashie with her tricks, Pinkie with her baking, and Rarity with her dress making. I wouldn't want to disturb them while they're in the middle of something." Fluttershy said looking back down. She wasn't always sad, but lately she's been really upset. Nopony really talked to her or visited her anymore, and she could feel the cold embrace of loneliness all around her.
Spike came back into the main room carrying a tray with 2 tea cups and a pot of two for the two mares. He sat down the tray in front of them and left without a word.
Why am I so nervous? Twilight thought. It's just Fluttershy, and she's just a friend... But why can't I stop looking into her eyes?
"Are you okay Twilight? You look nervous." Fluttershy asked with a concerned look on her face.
Twilight’s heart pounded. Should I do it? What if she hates me afterwards... What if she never wants to see me again? Twilight came up with many what if's in her head. After what seemed like an eternity Twilight finally got her courage up. She took Fluttershy's chin with her hoof and lifted her head up. Fluttershy looked confused but before she could say anything Twilight leaned forward and pressed her muzzle against hers.
Fluttershy's eyes widened and she pushed Twilight off. She stood there for a minute, speechless. She ran out of the library and back to her cottage, leaving Twilight standing alone in her home.
