Waking up I swore she wouldn’t be there, but yet I could still feel the warmth of that little filly still in my arms. And if that wasn’t enough to know that she was still there she started to squirm and let out a little yawn, I couldn’t help but to smile… a smile? Why am I smiling? why is it that she could make me happy, make me smile and no pony else can?
Little Mareilyn squirmed again and I looked down to see if she had woken, and gasped.
She was looking up at me with those eyes that were happy and joyful, eyes I’ve only seen on one other pony, “Oh yeah, that’s why…” it was because she was so much like her that I had to smile. After I found my breath I looked over at the clock, “huh. Rainbow Dash should be here by now it’s later than usual” odd “well maybe she’s still busy cleaning the festival or something….” I mumbled to myself. But still it’s a little strange.
“It looks like it’s just me and you for now” I said looking back into the eyes of the filly. “I wonder what Dashies going to think of you” letting out a laugh, “I bet she’ll love you” Mareilyn giggled causing me to smile wider than I already was, “You know I really think that you’re one the best things that’s happened to me and I’ve only had you for a night and half the day….” I let out I little laugh “yup one of the best”
“Oh sweet Celestia” plugging my nose, “is that you?” I picked her up and took her to the baby changing station. “My goodness…” I was literally turning green from the smell being amped from me opening it, witch Mareilyn found pretty funny, “ha-ha you may look sweet but you can smell vile” again, she thought that that was pretty funny. How adorable
After I got her changed we went to sit on the floor and play with the toys I had gotten from the baby room. She loved to play with them, and apparently they tasted delicious too. “Ha-ha is that yummy?” I said to her while I ruffled up her mane. She smiled that big goofy smile the same way as she did the first time. Smiling seemed to be something she never stopped doing. Even when she was hungry, she never cried, she just got really quiet and drooled a lot. The only time I heard her and seen her cry was when I found her, and even then she was easily calmed.
Looking at the clock again to see the time as I grabbed the bottle I found in her basket to fill it up with formula. “Where is Rainbow Dash it’s almost night ti...” I had looked out side only to find that it was dark. “But that’s not right it should still be light out,” its only 5:00pm, “strange did something happen at the festival?” Oh no Rainbow!
I quickly rushed and grabbed Mareilyn and strapped her into a carrier, designed to keep her on my back, and ran out the door and started flying to Pony Ville (it had been forever that I last flew I guess I forgot about my wings till now). I could here Mareilyn laughing so at least I knew she enjoyed it, but I could not smile nor laugh because I fear that I may loose Rainbow, and that I can not allow happening.
As I reached Pony Ville I could see that the place was empty and I thought that everypony was dead, but out of the corner of my eye I seen lights on in city hall. When I made it in side I could see that everypony was still alive and perfectly fine. “RAINBOW DASH!!” I yelled it so loud that every pony stared and I didn’t care. Jumping into the air I yelled her name again, I looked everywhere but still no sign of her.
I was beginning to freak out when something large hit me, and it felt almost as if it were another pony giving me a hug, no it was. As the pony pulled away I could see that it was Derpy, another of Mareilyn’s favorite fillies. “Careful Derpy I have a filly on my back and I don’t want her hurt ok” I told her
“Ok, Mr. Clover” making that silly face that I loved back when she was younger, and still did. Then there was a loud burst of laughter and Derpy had to see where it was coming from. When she found Mareilyn she smiled big and said “I never knew that you a Mary had a baby! She so cute!”
“we… didn’t…” I had forgotten that she had never been told about her death, but not wanting to hurt her I asked where Rainbow dash was instead.
“OH! Rainbow Dash left to go find Princes Celestia because the evil Nightmare Moon came and snatched her up!” I was instantly paralyzed, my jaw had dropped and I could feel the tears wanting to escape and run down my cheek, but she promised. She promised that she would get herself killed, and going up against Nightmare Moon was suicidal!
“I have to save her!” spinning poor unexpecting Derpy in circles as I dashed off like a mad stallion, still careful of the still laughing Mareilyn on my back. I flew as fast as I possibly could towards the old run down castle that was once Nightmare Moon’s, and hopped to god she was still alive.
Soon after I left I made it to Nightmare Moons castle, I could see nothing, no sign of that cyan colored pony. After a few minutes of flying around gave up and flew to the ground and began to cry, “Rainbow Dash please be alive, that is all I ask. I wont loose you not like I did Mary” I began to cry harder
“I.. its… o.. ok… shhh” a high pitched voice said, as if they were struggling to get the words out. Confused at who else would be here, I started to look around searching for the pony who said that. But there was no pony there
“Who’s there?” I asked ready for somepony to answer, one that never came. Was I hearing things?
“shhhhhhh” there it was again but this time I heard it loud enough to know where it came from. Its was Mareilyn speaking her first words, and mimicking the same words I used to calm her when she was scared.
Taking her out from the harness I placed her in my lap and smiled. “Yes, it is ok your right” I said running my hoof through her hair, “I’m sure that Dashies alive and is probably back in pony Ville by now.” Mary gave me that goofy smile once again, and I could help but give her a funny grin back
Strapping Mareilyn onto my back again, we took off flying back to pony Ville a second time, hopping Dashie was alright.
