"Spike!" Yelled Twilight. "Yes Twilight?" Said Spike. "I need you to run an errand for me, the Everfree forest has had a
strange aura surrounding it for the past week, you need to investigate it further." Said Twilight. "Alright." Spike said. "I'll be back
within an hour." Leaving the library and shutting the door behind him Spike began to walk towards the forest. "HIYA!" Said Pinkie Pie which startled Spike making him fall over on his back. "Pinkie Pie?" Said Spike. "Yup, silly! What are you doing?" Said Pinkie. "I have to run an errand for Twilight." He said. "Oh well, have this cupcake for good luck!" Said Pinkie while handing him a cupcake. "Thanks, I'll save it for later." Spike replied. "See ya!" Said Pinkie. Spike began walking again and he finally made it out of town. He looked at the cupcake, it was pink with small plastic balloons all over it. Looking closer he saw a piece of paper, neatly rolled. Taking it out he read the paper. "Special" cupcake. "What does that mean?" He said. "Do you have the money?" Said an unknown voice. It was a familiar voice to Spike but he just couldn't remember. It seemed to come from a cave on his right. Strolling over to it he listened. "No, but we'll have it tonight, as long as everything goes according to plan." Said another unknown voice. Both were familiar but Spike was having trouble placing them. Suddenly, he was gagged and thrown onto the ground and shoved into a sack. He fell unconscious a few seconds later.
Spike had just woken up from unconsciousness and had a throbbing headache. He was still gagged and tied to a table, he couldn't get a closer look at the table before the voices came again. "Do you think he heard?" "No, our accomplice here gagged and bagged this motherfucker before he could hear anymore." The conversation went on but Spike wasn't listening. He was dozing off again.
"Get up!" Said a third unknown voice. Spike was splashed with cold water, he opened his eyes and there he saw, Vinyl Scratch? Spike spit out the gag. "What the fuck?" He exclaimed. "Good your awake!" Said Snips as he came out of the shadows. Spike struggled against the restraints. "Don't bother, Snail is a genius when it comes to knots." Spike still had a headache and was trying to compile this situation, however all he could manage was realized that he was powerless here. One wrong move and he'd probably be dead. "What do you want with me!" Spike said. "Spike, its simple. You overheard a part of our conversation and now we will have to get rid of you." Said Snips. Spike flinched at that last sentence, he began to sweat and it made him very uncomfortable. "I won't say a word to anypony! I swear!" Spike yelled. "How can we trust you? Words are words!" Said Snips. Snail then came through the entrance of the cave. "No one else is here, we're a go." Said Snail. "A go on what?" Said Spike anxiously. "Your death." Said Vinyl while pulling out a revolver. At the sight of the gun Spike really began to worry. The revolver had a silver barrel and a wooden inlaid handle. "It's a shame really, I enjoyed having you around Spike." Said Vinyl as she placed the barrel on his forehead. It was at this exact moment that Spike remembered Pinkie's "special" cupcake. He reached for his bag and managed to pull it out. "Drop it." Said Vinyl slowly. Spike obeyed and dropped the cupcake. "A cupcake?" Said Vinyl while picking it up. "I really could go for a snack!" She popped it in her mouth. Vinyl said "That was one damn go-" Before falling to the ground, she began throwing up uncontrollably. Spike wriggled free of the restraints and ran towards the exit of the cave. "Stop right there!" Snail said with Vinyl's revolver pointed at Spike. Spike stopped and began to sweat again. "End of the line." Said Snips "Do it."
Time seemed to slow down as this moment happened. Spike turned around to see Snail putting his hoof on the hammer of the revolver and then firing. Spike thought within this second. "If I die, someone please bring these assholes down. I don't know what they're planning but it will be bad for Ponyville thats for su-."
The bullet went through Spike's head. He fell over onto the floor face first into a pool of his own blood. "That'll teach him for killing Vinyl." Said Snail quietly. They went about on their business. They were planning to rob the Ponyville bank, however this was no ordinary heist. This was genocide. This plan including killing all the workers at the bank, they had made the plan perfectly. Now they just have to put this plan to work.
For the next few days Rainbow dash started to get worried. She hadn't seen Spike for a week! She disregarded the clouds in Ponyville and flew straight to Twilight's house. She knocked on the door to get an immediate answer from Twilight. "Oh, hello Rainbow Dash. What do you need?" Twilight said. "Have you seen Spike?" Said Rainbow Dash in reply. "No, I sent him on an errand, he's checking out the forest. He'll be back soon." She said. Twilight closed the door and went back to her studies.
Rainbow Dash flew to the forest as quickly as she could and looked around. No sign of Spike, she noticed a cave however. She landed and trotted over to it, "Spike might be in here...." She said. Looking inside she didn't see anything but she still went in.
She gasped, on the ground in a pool of dry blood lay Spike. "No, NO, NO!" Rainbow Dash screamed. "Is he your friend?" Said Snail as he emerged from the back of the cave. "You?" She said "You did this?" "Who else?" Said Snail. "Now we'll do the same to you!" Exclaimed Snips. "You two dumb fucks did this?" She yelled. "I"LL KILL YOU BOTH!" Snips ran out of the cave leaving Snail with Rainbow Dash. She ran at him and tackled him to the ground. She pulled out a pocket knife and put it to his throat. "Give me one good reason why I shouldn't slit your throat right now!" Dash Screamed. "Because I-" Snail said. "Too late!" Said Dash as she slit his throat.
Blood stained the ground as it spurt out of Snail's throat. Wiping her pocket knife clean Dash noticed something on Snail's hip. A silver revolver, she took it and said to herself. "This will come in handy for little Snips." "The hunt begins!" Said Dash with a blood lust.
Snips began to pant as he ran towards Ponyville. Then he remembered, Rainbow Dash would find him there and kill him in broad daylight, he needed to find somewhere safer. He turned towards the forest and ran with all his energy. He hid in and a bush and saw Rainbow Dash fly out of the cave. "Shit, I've got to hurry!" Snips said to himself.
Unfortunately for Snips, Rainbow Dash heard this and flew over to the area. She spotted Snips running and she flew as fast as she could at him. Snips was panting hard and dived into a bush on the side of the path where the trees got thick, and Rainbow Dash flew right over. "Now if I back track I can make it to Ponyville and be safe!" He began to walk the path back to Ponyville.
"I can't see him! These damn trees are in my way!" Dash said. She dived into the trees to find that Snips was no longer on the path. "That little...." "Wait, he must of gone back!" She began to fly the other way back towards Ponyville. As she suspected she saw Snips walking at a cozy pace down the path. She flew straight at him, dodging the trees and cutting through the air fast as lightning. Snips was knocked to the ground and was held at gunpoint. "You motherfucker!" Rainbow Dash yelled. "You'll pay for what you've done!" She pointed the barrel at his forehead and shot. "That's two kills for me." She said quietly. "But they deserved it!"
Many ponies cried as the coffin was pulled by 4 chocolate colored mares. "We are here today to grieve for our honored and fallen friend." Princess Celestia said. "Spike was a brave baby dragon, who was the messenger and friend of my faithful student Twilight Sparkle." "If we could please have a moment for our beloved Spike."
After the funeral Rainbow Dash and the gang rounded around Spikes grave. Rainbow Dash stood over his grave and began to sob.
