Author’s Note: Hey there again! I made this because I thought about it not too far ago. I hope you like this story and again,feel free to give me some critique on this story,follow me if you want more,and give this story a favorite if possible. I do not own any of this at all,it’s all Hasbro. Now let’s get on with the story!
It was a glorious night in the city of Canterlot. Thanks to Shining Armor and Princess Cadance, Canterlot and all of Equestria was saved from the evil Queen Chrysalis. Now that things were back to normal, everyone was celebrating and cheering for Twilight after she sang her beautiful song “Love is in Bloom”.
Suddenly Princess Cadance began to speak before she went in her carriage with Shining Armor.
“My fellow guests, on behalf of me and my husband,we thank you for supporting us and helping us to make this wedding possible. We must depart for our Honeymoon, but you may begin to eat, drink and celebrate to your heart’s content. Princess Celestia and Luna should be taking over now, so enjoy!” Cadance spoke before she left with Shining Armor.
As everypony watched the young lovers depart, Spike talked about the “Bachelor’s Party”, which made everypony near laugh.
“What’s so funny, I’m serious!” Spike said as they continued to laugh. “Ugh whatever I’m getting something to drink” he said angrily as he walked to the drink table.
When he came to the table, he saw two types of Cider, Hard or Light, with Big Macintosh serving them. As he finished serving the Crusaders their cups, he came across Spike.
“Hey Big Macintosh, hit me up with the ‘hard’ stuff!” Spike said with a wink as Big Macintosh gave him his usual glare.
“Eenope!” Big Mac said nonchalantly.
“What do you mean eenope? We’re male and cool, so help a brother out dude!” Spike said whining.
“Eenope! This Cider’s too much for you to handle lil’ dragon. Now run along ‘fore I get Twilight” Big Mac said.
“Whatever” Spike said when suddenly Fluttershy came in.
“Oh Spike I hope I'm not interrupting you or anything,but I just really need to talk to Big Macintosh for something important" Fluttershy said as she trotted next to him.
"Its cool Fluttershy" Spike said as Fluttershy sighed with relief. She then moved in front of Big Mac and blushed and looked down towards the ground.
"Um Big Macintosh?" Fluttershy called quietly.
"Yes Ms.Fluttershy" Big Macintosh responded, making her blush even harder.
"Um if you don’t mind, can you help me bring out some bird cages, I mean only If you want” Fluttershy said quietly as she rubbed a hoof in the ground.
“Eeyup!” Big Mac said quickly as Fluttershy smiled brightly and led the way into the castle.
“Wow how strangely convenient!” Spike said as he went back to the table and quickly poured himself a glass of ‘hard’ Cider when he was suddenly interrupted.
“Hi Spike!” Sweetie Belle said cheerfully, making Spike nearly drop his drink as he turned around quickly, only to see Sweetie Belle smiling at him.
“Oh, hey Sweetie Belle” Spike said as he breathed a sigh of relief.
“Oh nothing much, I just wanted to know if you wanted to dance some more with me-er I mean with Scootaloo?” Sweetie Belle asked nervously as she blushed.
“Oh uh I’m sorry it’ll have to wait” Spike said as the Ciders effects began to kick in.
“ *hiccup* I’m gonna go hang with *hiccup* Rarity, peace!” Spike said groggily as he began walking (and tripping) his way to Rarity, leaving a sad (and nearly burnt) Sweetie Belle to go dance more with her two friends.
“RARITY MY LOVE I’M HERE!” Spike called out while Rarity was talking to Fancy Pants.
“Spike?” Rarity asked herself as he began to climb her back and hug her neck.
“Spike? Is that this young fellow’s name? Dare I say that he looks quite inebriated if I do say so myself” Fancy Pants told Rarity as she tried to pry Spike off her with magic.
“Are you implying my Spikey-wiky is drunk? No way, besides Big Macintosh, the big red stallion from earlier is watching it, no way he-” as Rarity tried to finish the sentence, she saw Big Macintosh return with the cages and a smiling Fluttershy.
“Oh Celestia!” Rarity said as Spike nibbled her ear.
“Hey cutie, I got me’s a hotel room of love just for the two of us, hows about it?” Spike said laughing and licking her ear.
“No you perverted dragon, Twilight!” Rarity called as Spike kept ‘harassing’ her, catching Twilight and other guests attention.
“Spike? No bad dragon!” Twilight called as she pried Spike off and slapped him, knocking him out. Once she was sure he was out, she said bye to everypony and quickly left to their guest room in the castle, Celestia had been nice enough to let her and her friends stay for a few nights in the castle because of the wedding.
“Oh Spike when you wake up I’m gonna lecture you like never before!” Twilight told the sleeping dragon as she went to get her friends ready for departure to PonyVille that night.
The Next Day......
“Spike I cannot BELIEVE you did what you did last night!” Twilight said angrily as she packed up her stuff from the wedding.
“I told you I was sorry Twilight!” Spike said as he sat in Twilight’s ‘lecture’ chair.
“Sometimes Spike ‘sorry’ doesn’t fix the matter, what you did was rude, disgusting, disrespectful and downright disgraceful!” Twilight said as she gave him her cold glare and snorted violently out her nose.
“I looked like a complete IDIOT out there, everypony knows you’re MY responsibility. So now ponies may think I ALWAYS let you get drunk and such, good thing Celestia and Luna helped me cover THAT act of yours up or Celestia knows what the media would’ve done to us!” Twilight said as her nostrils began to flare.
"I mean my parents were there Spike, MY PARENTS! They must have been so ashamed of me! I mean they must have been so ashamed they left the party, or burn my pictures, or even DISOWN ME! They might even be plotting at this very moment a way to get me back to Canterlot, or worse... MAGIC KINDERGARTEN! If I go to Magic Kindergarten Spike I swear to CELESTIA I'll get revenge!" Twilight said breathing heavily with wide eyes.
“Gosh Twilight don’t get so stressed out, I can fix this I swear!” Spike said as he quivered in fear in the chair.
“Oh don’t worry about ‘fixing’ anything! I got an idea, you stay AWAY from Rarity and my friends for a while, go get your OWN so you don’t embarrass me ok? Now goodbye Spike see you at dinner!” Twilight said as she shoved him out the door and locked it quick.
“Man I can’t believe this is happening” Spike told himself as he walked down the street. “Twilight hates me, Rarity probably must be telling herself I don’t exist, and now I have absolutely no friends to hang out with anymore” Spike said as he passed Rarity’s Boutique. As he looked at her window he saw Rarity left her window open and was staring dead at him. He waved, only to make Rarity scowl and shut her window angrily, so Spike continued walking.
As he continued to aimlessly walk towards Sweet Apple Acres, he heard a humming sound.
“I wonder what’s that?” Spike asked himself as he continued walking but listening to the sound as it got louder and louder. Suddenly out of nowhere Spike heard a quick ‘look out!’ and instantly got hit by a large object.
“Ow” Spike said as he got up, only to notice three fillies looking down at him.
“Oh my, Spike are you ok?” Sweetie Belle asked as she helped him up and he dusted himself off.
“Oh um yeah, I’m not that hurt” Spike said when he noticed he had a huge cut on his arm.
“Yeah ya are! You got a huge cut on ‘yer arm!” Applebloom said as she pointed her hoof to his cut.
“I got an idea! Let’s help clean his wound at the club house!” Scootaloo said smiling.
“YEAH!” Applebloom and Sweetie Belle said in unison. “CUTIE MARK CRUSADERS, NURSE PONIES! YAY!” the trio said as they put Spike in the wagon and sped off to the clubhouse.

Though please cut me some slack on the editing,if you see something wrong tell me so I can fix it. Although it’s just me fixing it,so spare me please! I own nothing,now on with the story!
“Ow sweet Celestia!” Spike groaned as Apple Bloom poured too much Rubbing Alcohol on his cut.
“Oops! Sorry Spike” Apple Bloom said as she got tissues and wiped the extra amounts surrounding his cut.
“Oh stop being such a crybaby! I’d expect a dragon to be used to getting burned a bit, since they breath fire and all” Scootaloo said as she put a Band-Aid on Spike’s cut.
“Scootaloo stop being so insensitive! Spike has feelings you know” Sweetie Belle said as she flashed a smile at Spike, as he returned one to her.
“Alright ya’ll enough chattin! Check to see if we got our cutie marks!” Apple Bloom said as the three checked for them, getting a shriek from Sweetie Belle.
“Look guys I got my cutie mark! Its a Band-Aid!” Sweetie Belle said as she showed it off, when suddenly Scootaloo ripped it off.
“OW!” Sweetie Belle said as she rubbed her rump, making the other two crusaders laugh.
“Guess who’s the dodo now!” Scootaloo said to Apple Bloom as they continued to laugh and roll on the floor.
“Whatever you guys” Sweetie Belle said as her stomach started to grumble.
“Uh Sweetie Belle, was that you?” Spike asked as he walked towards her, making her blush in embarrassment.
“Um ye-” Sweetie Belle was about to finish when Apple Bloom suddenly interrupted.
“No Spike that was uh me! Yeah I can get real hungry sometimes, and that last crusade we did sure has made me work up an appetite, lets go get somethin’ ta eat!” Apple Bloom said as she winked at Sweetie Belle.
“Yeah I can go for something to eat, lets go” Scootaloo said as she put on her helmet.
“Alright I’m in, but where?” Spike asked as they began to climb down from their headquarters.
“How about SugarCube Corner?” Sweetie Belle said, getting ‘yeahs’ from the other three.
“Yeah, good thinking Sweetie Belle!” Spike said as Sweetie Belle’s cheeks began to burn.
“Alright Spike, you hold onto my back, Sweetie and Apple Bloom, you guys get on the wagon” Scootaloo said as they all got themselves comfortable.
“Alright, lets go!” Scootaloo said as they began to drive off.
While they were going to SugarCube Corner, Apple Bloom decided to talk to Sweetie Belle.
“Sweetie Belle, ya like Spike don’tcha?” Apple Bloom asked her when they began to approach town.
“Shh no I don’t!” Sweetie Belle said quickly as she put a hoof over the southern filly’s mouth.
“Yeah ya do! I see how you look at him, and blush when he compliments you, and remember you were so happy when you danced with him at the weddin!” Apple Bloom whispered as she moved her hoof from her mouth and glared at her.
“Ok alright Ms. Detective! I like him you’re right, but I don’t think he likes me all that much. I mean maybe he likes you, or Scootaloo, or even worse..my sister!” Sweetie Belle told Apple Bloom as she began to daydream about Spike being some prince in armor, and Rarity being a princess in despair and right when they were about to kiss, she stopped daydreaming and shivered.
“Sweetie Belle, just talk to him when we get to SugarCube Corner alright? Ahm sure he’ll take a likin’ to ya” Apple Bloom said smiling as she and Sweetie Belle hugged.
“Eww cut that out you two! We’re here” Scootaloo said as the two broke off, and got out the wagon.
“Alright finally! I’m starving” Spike said as they all went inside the store and sat on the seats in front of the counter, Sweetie Belle sitting next to Spike.
Soon Pinkie Pie came bursting out of the back, and smiled when she saw the Crusaders.
“Hey guys hows it going? I was wondering when you’d be coming back here for a snack or.... two” Pinkie Pie said when she noticed Spike, then she frowned.
“Well if it isn’t ‘dragon that embarresseses my best friend Twilight’!” Pinkie Pie said frowning.
“I know Pinkie Pie, and I’m sorry I swear” Spike said as he looked down ashamed, making Pinkie feel bad.
“You Pinkie Promise you are, and will never do it again?” Pinkie asked Spike with a friendly smile on her face.
“Cross my heart, hope to fly, stick a cupcake in my eye” Spike said, making Pinkie Pie beam with happiness.
“You’re forgiven from me Spike” Pinkie said smiling as they hugged, as Sweetie Belle and Apple Bloom smiled, only to get a gag from Scootaloo.
“BOOO! Ew Celestia what is this, a love fest or something? I came for a snack, not some love fest!” Scootaloo complained.
“Oh snap I’m sorry!” Pinkie said as she got into waiter mode.
“So what would you like?” Pinkie asked them kindly.
“I would like a Rainbow Cupcake and Berry Punch” Scootaloo said making Berry Punch look up from her seat with Derpy and Doctor Whooves.
“I meant the drink!” Scootaloo said resulting in her friends laughing and Berry Punch smiling and rolling her eyes, making her two companions laugh.
“I’d like a Apple Cupcake, and Apple Juice!” Apple Bloom said as Sweetie Belle asked for the same thing.
“ I’d just like a Diamond Cupcake, extra sprinkles!” Spike said as Pinkie Pie nodded her head and went to complete their orders.
As Pinkie left the room, Sweetie Belle began to make her move on Spike.
“So um Spike, you got any crushes by any chance?” Sweetie Belle asked sweetly, making Apple Bloom face hoof herself.
“Oh yeah actually I do!” Spike said making Sweetie Belle smile brightly.
“Well who is it?” Sweetie Belle asked.
“Well she’s white, got a beautiful mane, can sing, and is very considerate to her friends” Spike said as Sweetie Belle’s smile grew bigger.
“ Well Spike I’m so flattered that you like-” Sweetie Belle said when Spike interrupted her.
“And her name is Rarity” Spike said as his eyes drooped down and he smiled, while Sweetie Belle’s jaw dropped in shock.
“You’re in love with my SISTER?” Sweetie Belle asked him frantically hoping he was lying.
“Yeah, even though she’s mad at me, I still love her” Spike said as Sweetie Belle’s heart began to shatter and eyes water.
“I’m being sarcastic” Spike said as Sweetie Belle sniffled and sighed.
“ Well if thats the case Spike, I was wondering after this if you want you would like to come with me to my favorite spot in the park to watch Celestia lower the sun” Sweetie Belle asked nervously as she looked away.
“Well if you’re asking me to watch the sunset with you, then sure I don’t see why not. I’m pretty sure Twilight wouldn’t care” Spike said as Pinkie Pie brought their treats.
As Sweetie Belle ate her treat and drink, she couldn’t help but imagine how romantic it would be when her and Spike go to her ‘special spot’ and watch the sunset. The thought had constantly brought a huge smile to her face, which Apple Bloom saw, thus making her smile as well.
“Well I’m done!” Scootaloo said as she began to get down from her seat.
“Me too” Spike said as he got down too.
“Eeyup!” Apple Bloom said as she and Sweetie Belle followed suit.
“Hey what about my bits?” Pinkie Pie said calling, when Derpy came behind her.
“Don’t worry about it Pinkie, We’ll cover it!” Derpy said smiling as she paid it.
“Thank you Derpy, I’ll be sure to tell your boss to give you a higher raise for this!” Pinkie said as Derpy and her friends left.
“Alright guys ready for some more crusading?” Scootaloo asked as she put on her helmet.
“Sorry Scootaloo, maybe tomorrow because me and Spike are gonna go watch the sunset!” Sweetie Belle said smiling as they waved bye and left for their ‘romantic’ evening.
“Yeah Scoots, and ahm tired as hay, mind droppin me off to ma' place?” Apple Bloom asked Scootaloo as Apple Bloom winked getting a nod from the orange filly, as the two began to get on Scootaloo's scooter and speed off 'home'.
As Sweetie Belle and Spike were on their way to the park, other ponies smiled and gave the two some space to walk.
“Aw look at those two Big Mac, Spike and Sweetie Belle are so cute together!” Cheerilee said smiling as Big Mac agreed with an low ‘eeyup’ as he stared down Spike.
“Alright Spike, we’re almost there just keep following me” Sweetie Belle said as they walked through the park.
“There it is! Over there” Sweetie pointed out to him a hill with a small tree near it.
As they walked to it and began to sit under it, the two noticed the sun beginning to lower.
“Sweetie Belle this is wonderful, I’m glad you brought me here this is great!” Spike said as he smiled at her
“Oh you’re welcome Spike! I’m glad you like it” Sweetie Belle said as heat began to build in her cheeks.
Suddenly Spike got up and walked to a nearby water faucet to clean ‘something’ Sweetie Belle couldn’t quite see. He soon came back and sat down closer to her.
“Sweetie Belle...” Spike called nervously.
“Yes Spike?” Sweetie Belle asked, giving him her cutest smile.
“ I uh made this for you” Spike said as he presented her a large diamond made into a necklace, with an encrusted ‘S+S equals heart sign’ on it.
“Oh Spike!” Sweetie Belle said as she hugged him tight, and allowed him to put it around her.
“Ever since the wedding I had a crush on you, the grace you had when dancing, the way you smiled it made me attracted to you. You're so smart, and nice, and friendly! I always thought Rarity was the perfect one, and never seemed to realize the real perfect one right in front of me. I may mess up sometimes, but I know I won't with you Sweetie, I love you” Spike said as Sweetie Belle smiled tearfully at him.
“Oh my goodness Spike, I love you too” Sweetie Belle said as she smiled brightly.
Sweetie Belle felt great! Her crush Spike had seemed to love her too. It was as if Celestia was making the dimming sun shine the last of its rays on them, she felt wonderful. So as she leaned in to kiss him, the sun seemed to be completely blocked. So when she opened her eyes she noticed four ponies standing behind her, making her and Spike blush.
"Hey Rainbow, Applejack, Scoots, Apple Bloom! Hehe what're you guys doing here?" Sweetie Belle asked nervously as they all exchanged glances.

“What in the hay is goin’ on around here?” Applejack asked as Sweetie Belle and Spike looked at each other and blushed.
“Seems like they’re in love to me A.J” Rainbow Dash said as she and Applejack exchanged glances.
“Now I can explain, you see-” Sweetie Belle began when suddenly Spike interrupted.
“Look guys, me and Sweetie Belle were about to...kiss because well, we love each other!” Spike told the four ponies, making them gasp and getting Sweetie Belle to smile and hug him.
“I know I made a mistake in the past, but I know I love Sweetie Belle, so you guys are either with us, or against us!” Spike said as he got in front of his lover.
“Spike calm the heck down dude, we’re with ya” Rainbow Dash said as Spike and Sweetie Belle’s jaws dropped.
“Y-Y-You are?” Spike and Sweetie both stammered, clearly confused by the cyan pegasus.
“Yes Sugarcube we are, Applebloom told us all about yer’ crush on Spike. At first we weren’t sure if you dating Spike would be a good idea, especially after his little stint at the weddin’" Applejack said as she shot Spike a glare.
“So Applebloom led us back to Ponyville, and we saw you two going towards the park, so we followed you two here and saw how much you two liked each other!” Rainbow Dash said smirking and winking at Spike, making him smile nervously.
“So me and Rainbow forgive you, and think you two are cute together” Applejack said as she hugged the two young lovers, making Rainbow Dash look at her friend in disbelief.
“I didn’t say all that A.J! I said they make a ‘cool’ couple, not cute” Rainbow said as they all laughed, except Scootaloo.
“Wait a second!” Sweetie Belle told them as they all stopped laughing.
“What’s the problem?” Apple Bloom asked her friend.
“My sister’s the problem! How are we gonna tell her this?” Sweetie Belle asked as Applejack and Rainbow Dash’s eyes widened.
“Oh HAY no! We are NOT tellin’ Rarity anythin’ ya hear! If she finds out you’re datin’ Spike, and we’re allowing it, she’s gonna make us into her new fashion designs!” Applejack told Sweetie Belle as Rainbow Dash nodded in agreement.
“Alright, so just don’t tell her, ok I can live with that” Spike said as he helped Sweetie Belle get up.
“Though what if she finds out?” Sweetie Belle asked.
“Just make something up, say you’re just toying with her or something” Rainbow Dash told them as they began to trot to Sugarcube Corner.
Little did they know, Scootaloo had sneaked away and ran to Rarity’s Boutique.
“Forgive me Rainbow Dash” Scootaloo said to herself quietly as she ran past Derpy and Doctor Whooves (who happened to be arguing) and stopped in front of the store.
As she walked in the door, she noticed Rarity was sewing a dress together. When she saw Scootaloo, she finished sewing the dress and used her magic to put it up.
“Why hello Scootaloo, where’s Sweetie Belle?” Rarity asked as she walked up to the purple maned filly.
“Thats the thing! She’s with Spike because they’re dating now and are plotting a way to keep it secret. I’m not lying I swear to Celestia, I’m only telling you because if she dates Spike, then she’ll stop hanging with me and Apple Bloom, and then we can’t be the Cutie Mark Crusaders anymore!” Scootaloo said panting when Twilight came out of the bathroom.
“So you’re saying my Spike is dating Sweetie Belle, and is coming here acting like they’re not?” Twilight said as she stood next to Rarity.
“Yes!” Scootaloo said frantically as Twilight got her a drink, and patted Scootaloo on the head.
“Thank you for telling us this, we’ll handle things from here, you go hide in the bathroom” Twilight said as Scootaloo began to leave.
“Rainbow Dash, Applejack, and Apple Bloom are there too” Scootaloo said to them as she left to hide.
“I can’t believe Spike would do this, make poor Sweetie Belle date him so he could have a part of you with him” Twilight said angrily as Rarity nuzzled her.
“Don’t worry Twilight, I got a plan!” Rarity said as she whispered into her ear the plan for when they arrive.
“Oh so evil, but then again so smart!” Twilight snickered as she went to hide in Rarity’s room, while Rarity put on her glasses and began to knit.
Meanwhile back to Spike and Sweetie Belle....
“Oh Lordy Spike you’re killing me!” Applejack laughed as Spike made another ‘Twilight being an egghead’ joke as they made it to the boutique after eating some snacks.
Applejack knocked on the door, as Rarity opened the door with green magic as they all walked in.
“Why hello there you guys, hi Spike” Rarity said through gritted teeth as Spike waved nervously.
“We came to drop these two off Rarity, we’ll be on our way now” Applejack said when Rarity used magic to lock the door.
“Hey what gives?” Rainbow Dash asked as Rarity smiled wickedly.
“Did you guys really think I wouldn’t find out your little secret?” Rarity asked them as she looked at Sweetie Belle, who began to laugh nervously.
“S-S-Secret? What secret sis, there’s no secret here” Sweetie Belle said as she began to shake out of fear.
“No secret, then what’s all this I’m hearing about you and Spike DATING” Rarity asked her little sister angrily.
“WHAT! ME AND SPIKE AREN’T DATING!” Sweetie Belle yelled as she began to feel sick inside her stomach.
“LIES! Scootaloo told me the WHOLE thing, and I’ll be a Griffin’s mother if I’m wrong, am I right Applejack?” Rarity asked the orange mare angrily, as she bowed her head in shame.
“You’re right” Applejack said sadly as Sweetie Belle saw Scootaloo come out the bathroom, and look at her with hurt eyes.
“AHA, I knew it! Now you’re punishment will be severe for lying, and dating without my consent” Rarity said with a smirk.
“You too Spike!” Twilight said as she came down the stairs and gave Spike a death glare.
“No Crusading for a month, and NO DATING until you’re old enough!” Rarity said angrily as Sweetie looked at her sister with teary eyes.
“What? That’s not fair, I’m old enough to date! You can’t do this to me, you’re not my mom you’re my sister!” Sweetie Belle said as tears streamed down her face.
“My home, my rules” Rarity said smiling coldly as Sweetie Belle broke down in tears.
“You’re the worst sister ALIVE! I HATE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART!” Sweetie Belle wailed angrily as she ran up to her room.
“Alright everypony you can leave now, shows over” Rarity said as they all began to leave.
“Rainbow Dash, take Scootaloo and Spike home please?” Rarity asked as Rainbow Dash agreed silently as they all left, leaving a pleased Rarity and worried Twilight.
“Gosh Rarity wasn’t that a little more harsher than we planned?” Twilight asked Rarity as she poured herself some cider.
“No that was even better, now stop judging me Twilight” Rarity said as she began to drink the cider down.
“Alright... well mind letting me have some?” Twilight asked as Rarity began pouring her a glass, with a green glow from her eye quickly flashing on the drink.
Meanwhile to Sweetie Belle....
“*sniff* *sniff* Stupid sister I hate her!” Sweetie Belle said as she threw her pilow at the door and screamed in a fit of rage.
“Is that any way to act my love?” Spike asked making Sweetie Belle jump in shock.
“Spike?” Sweetie Belle asked as she turned around, as the purple dragon smiled and held his arms out.
“Spike!” Sweetie Belle called as she hugged him tight and cried.
“Shh Sweetie, or we’ll get caught” Spike told her gently as her crying slowed down.
“H-How did you get here?” Sweetie Belle asked him as he smiled and sat her down on the bed.
“Rainbow Dash flew me here of course. Scootaloo explained to us why she told on us, she thought the Cutie Mark Crusaders might end, so I assured her you wouldn’t let that happen” Spike said as Sweetie Belle gave him a quick peck on the lips, making him blush hard.
“Oh Spike you’re such a gentle...dragon?” she told him as she laughed, making him laugh too.
Suddenly Spike stopped laughing and became serious, catching his lover’s attention.
“Something wrong Spike?” Sweetie Belle asked him curiously.
“No, well yeah actually. Sweetie Belle I know how we can get out of this dilemma” Spike said as he took Sweetie Belle’s hoof into his claws.
“How Spike, my evil sister grounded me, and Twilight grounded you remember?” Sweetie Belle said as she sighed.
“I know that, but I got us two tickets to Canterlot! We can write a fake letter to Princess Celestia telling her we’re coming to live there, then we really go to Twilight's mom’s house!” Spike said smiling.
“I dunno Spike, we can’t just write a letter to Celestia like that, she’ll banish us or send us to some dungeon” Sweetie Belle told him nervously.
“No she won’t, or she would’ve done it to Pinkie Pie for making me send those empty scrolls. Just trust me Sweetie, I promise things won’t go bad, and I’ll take care of you I pinkie promise!” Spike told her as he did the oath, making her laugh.
“Alright Spikey-Wiky, count me in” Sweetie Belle said as she kissed him again.
Dear Princess Celestia,
This is Spike, Twilight’s faithful assistant. I am writing to you so you may be aware that I am coming to visit you in Canterlot for an “important meeting” along with my companion, Sweetie Belle. I hope you will have time to speak with us, and a room for us to sleep in, if you do not mind. We cannot wait to see you and Luna again!
“There that should do it” Sweetie Belle said as Spike sent the letter to Celestia.
“We should get going, the train leaves in fifteen minutes!” Spike said as Sweetie Belle got her bookbag and packed some minor things she would need in it.
“Alright Spike, lets go!” Sweetie Belle said as the two used the filly’s bedsheets to climb down and run off.
“Bye evil sister” Sweetie Belle said quietly to herself as they continued to run into the night, with the Train Station in sight.

“What are you two doing here at this time of night?” The Conductor asked the two as he stopped them outside the Friendship "Branch" Express.
“Uhh well you see we....we got to meet the Princess urgently!” Sweetie Belle said nervously, as the Conductor raised his eyebrow.
“Really, at 11 o’ clock in the night?” he asked them, as Sweetie Belle began to feel light headed from her nervous state. She didn’t have a good lie to tell this guy, and she was pretty sure Rarity might’ve known that she was gone by now. If Rarity caught up to them, she would be as good as dead. Knowing the situation was getting bad, Spike took over for his distressed lover.
“Look buddy, I’m Twilight Sparkle’s assistant Spike. I think you know she’s pretty close to Princess Celestia, and I don’t think the Princess will like the fact you’re holding me and my companion back from meeting with her. So if you keep it up, I’ll make sure to tell her, and I’ll make sure she sends you somewhere where the sun don’t shine” Spike said smirking as he pointed up to the moon, making the Conductor widen his eyes in fear and quickly take their tickets, as he allowed them to board the train with no further confrontations.
As the two took their seats in the last row, Spike began to snicker at the event that just took place.
“I can’t believe he took that, I mean what’s the chances of Celestia sending anypony ELSE to the moon, much less him! Gosh adults nowadays, such idiots” Spike told Sweetie Belle as he began to laugh again, only to make Sweetie Belle sigh, which caught his attention.
“What’s the matter Sweetie?” Spike asked as the train began to pull away.
“Oh Spike, I’m so scared about this whole plan. I mean, what if we get caught? Then we’ll be the talk of PonyVille, heck maybe all of Equestria!” Sweetie Belle said as she began to worry even more.
“What if my mother sees us in Canterlot? Oh no, MY MOTHER! If she catches me in Canterlot it’ll be the end of my Crusading days, my life in PonyVille, and most importantly our RELATIONSHIP! I don’t want to lose you Spike” Sweetie Belle said as she began to cry.
“Calm down Sweetie Belle! Nothing bad will happen to us ok? Even if something does go bad, I’ll protect you Sweetie, and never let anypony or thing tear us apart, I swear” Spike said as he kissed Sweetie Belle softly and hugged her, calming her down.
Suddenly the two looked up to see other ponies stomping their hooves in applause and approval.
“What a cute little couple” one mare said as others agreed in unison, as they all turned away from the little spectacle.
“Spike about what you said just now, that was real sweet” Sweetie Belle said as she kissed his cheek.
“I just really hope you’re right” Sweetie Belle said as she hugged him
“Me too Sweetie Belle. Now its pretty late, we should get some shut eye, tomorrow’s gonna be one heck of a day!” Spike told the filly as she laid down on his shoulder, and he laid his head on hers, and fell soundly to sleep.
Meanwhile to Rarity and Twilight....
“Thanks again for the drink Rarity” Twilight said sweetly as she began to get ready for her departure back to her home.
“Your welcome darling, though don’t leave just yet. Let me just make sure Sweetie Belle isn’t doing anything foolish up there, like texting or talking to Spike” Rarity said as she walked up the stairs.
Once she reached Sweetie Belle’s room, Rarity knocked on the door only to get no response.
“Sweetie Belle open the door please” Rarity asked, only to again get no response. Rarity sighed, and asked one last time.
“Sweetie Belle, please open the door or else I’ll force my way in” Rarity called again, only to get yet again no response, making her frustrated.
“Ok Sweetie Belle, I tried to be respectful, but you earned this!” Rarity called as she broke the lock on her sister’s door and busted through. Once she busted in, she screamed in pure terror.
“Oh my goodness Rarity what’s wrong?” Twilight asked as she teleported into the room, only to see the only ponies occupying it was Rarity and herself.
“S-S-Sweetie Belle’s GONE!” Rarity yelled as she looked all over the filly’s room for her, as Twilight looked around for clues, she noticed that the window was open.
“She escaped” Twilight said as Rarity looked at her with wide eyes filled with disbelief of what she just heard.
“She WHAT?” Rarity yelled as she walked beside Twilight to inspect the open window.
“Look here, she left a blanket rope leading outside. She must’ve escaped out somewhere” Twilight told Rarity, as she continued to investigate.
“Uh how about maybe your place!” Rarity told the purple mare as she simply rolled her eyes.
“No way, my place is too practical. Sweetie Belle is young, but she wasn’t born yesterday you know. She would know we’d check there first, so she probably went off somewhere else too hide out, and I’m guessing Spike is with her as well” Twilight sad as she looked at Rarity, who seemed to be thinking it over.
“Well shouldn’t we look for them?” Rarity asked Twilight as she yawned.
“No, we should wait until morning, then I can use my magic to find them. I can also get the others to help out as well” Twilight said as Rarity agreed with a sigh.
“I suppose, you can sleep here tonight” Rarity said as Twilight smiled and thanked her for the offer.
“Your welcome darling, you can sleep on the spare bed in my room. The bed should be in my closet, just open the door and it’ll pop out” Rarity said as Twilight thanked her friend again and left the room.
“Oh Sweetie Belle, why are you always interfering with my plans?” Rarity said as she turned off the light in the filly’s room, showing her eyes glow green as she closed the door.
The Next Day.....
The sun shone brightly on Twilight as its rays invaded the room through the open window. She smiled, dreaming about her brother and his wife and her in their younger days. Suddenly her dream was interrupted, when she felt her body fall off the bed.
“Augh!” Twilight groaned in shock as she landed on the floor, only to see Rainbow Dash hovering above her.
“Rainbow Dash what the heck did you do that for, and why are you here?” Twilight asked as the cyan pegasus sighed and yawned.
“Rarity called me and the others here, now get up and get downstairs egghead to understand the details” Rainbow Dash said as she smirked, making Twilight groan as they went downstairs.
When Twilight got down there, she noticed Spike and Sweetie Belle's pictures on the table, with her friends surrounding them. As she sat down next to Rarity, she saw Pinkie Pie blush when Rainbow Dash sat next to her. This made Twilight real curious, until Rarity spoke up.
“Well good morning everypony! I brought you all today to ask if you’ve seen or have Sweetie Belle at your home, because you see she left my home late last night without my knowledge” Rarity asked as the mares all looked at each other in confusion.
“I haven’t seen her” Pinkie Pie said first.
“I didn’t see her last night when I was with Big Mac” Fluttershy said as they all looked at her in confusion.
“Fluttershy, why’d you say all that?” Rainbow Dash asked as the yellow pegasus blushed hard and hid her face.
“Uhh slipped my tongue” Fluttershy said as she lowered her voice, as Rarity began to feel frustrated.
“GIRLS! None of you saw my sister?” Rarity asked them, as they all nodded no.
“Well then she must not have gotten far, I’ll just follow her steps with my magic” Twilight said as she casted a spell on the floor, allowing her to trace Sweetie Belle’s steps.
“Rainbow Dash, follow me” Twilight said as they went out the door.
As Twilight and Rainbow walked through town, the traces led them to the Train Station.
“Excuse me sir, have you seen a filly and a baby dragon by any chance?” Twilight asked the conductor as his eyes widened, remembering last night.
“As a matter of a fact, I did! They got off in Hollow Shades, the last stop of the Friendship Branch Express” he said as Twilight’s eyes widened.
“Hollow Shades? Oh my goodness!” Twilight said shocked as she ran back, leaving Rainbow Dash confused.
“Twilight what’s wrong?” Rainbow asked as Twilight looked at her with scared eyes.
“Rainbow Dash, those two are stuck in Hollow Shades! That’s not too far from Foal Mountains!” Twilight told Rainbow Dash frantically as they continued to rush back to the Boutique.
When they reached the Boutique, they rushed through the door and began to pant for breath.
“Twilight what’s the matter?” Applejack asked her as Twilight looked at her in shock.
“SPIKE AND SWEETIE BELLE ARE IN HOLLOW SHADES!” Twilight yelled as everypony stared at her in shock and disbelief.
“They’re WHERE?” Rarity asked Twilight in shock.
“You heard her, Hollow Shades. Though it gets worse, because I hear it’s scheduled to Thunderstorm over there in a little while” Rainbow Dash said as Rarity nearly fainted.
“Oh no this is bad, this is really bad!” Twilight said as she began to pace frantically back and forth.
"Oh no, those two must be really scared out there" Fluttershy said as Pinkie Pie nodded in agreement.
“Calm down everypony, I’ll tell the weather patrol to look out for the two in Hollow Shades now. In the meantime you guys should hop on the train and get over there!” Rainbow Dash said as she ran outside and took to the skies.
“Alright guys, let’s go to Hollow Shades!” Twilight said smiling proudly as they ran to the Train Station, with Spike and Sweetie Belle’s photos in their saddlebags.
Meanwhile to Spike and Sweetie Belle....
“mmm Spike” Sweetie Belle groaned as the sun's rays shined brightly on her head.
“What?” Spike asked as he tried to go back to sleep.
“I think we’re almost in Canterlot” Sweetie Belle said as she rubbed her eyes.
“Really?” Spike asked as he stood up and stretched.
“Yeah, the train is slowing down” Sweetie Belle said as she looked outside, only to see a new Train Station nearby.
“Good! My plan is working” Spike said as he sat back down.
“Um Spike” Sweetie Belle called nervously.
“Well ok, it was kind of your plan too I suppose Sweetie” Spike said smiling.
“Spike?” Sweetie Belle called again, this time more frantic.
“Though it was more my plan, since I tricked the Conductor” Spike said as he began to snicker, remembering last night.
“SPIKE!” Sweetie Belle yelled, getting his attention.
“What’s wrong Sweetie Belle?” Spike asked as he noticed her trembling in fear.
“Spike we’re not in Canterlot, we’re in Hollow Shades!” Sweetie Belle said freaking out as they neared the station with a sign saying 'Welcome To Hollow shades!'.
“Oh look you two are awake! Guess Princess Celestia won’t be pleased when she finds out you two aren’t coming” The conductor said smiling as he looked at the two.
“Hey man you mind taking us back to PonyVille?” spike asked as the Conductor laughed.
“Yes I do mind! Unless you got extra tickets?” he asked as he pulled out his hole puncher.
“No we don’t have extra tickets! Though c’mon help us out” Spike asked as the Conductor frowned and opened the door.
“No way amigo, you thought you could get away with tricking me?” he said as he dropped them outside the door and onto the platform, and put 15 bits in Sweetie Belle’s bag.
“That should hold you two liars off, see you later!” the Conductor said waving as the train pulled out, leaving Spike and Sweetie Belle on the platform.
“Stupid Conductor, c’mon Sweetie Belle lets go find somewhere to stay” Spike said as Sweetie Belle sniffled and whimpered.
“Sweetie Belle, are you ok?” Spike asked as they walked out the Train Station.
“No Spike I’m not ok! I was stupid enough to believe this dumb plan would work, and now we’re stuck in Hollow Shades, a place I have never even HEARD OF! I’m scared, starving, and hurt at the same time. You said nothing bad would happen, and now look!” Sweetie Belle said angrily as they looked around the small town.
“I know I messed up Sweetie Belle, and I’m sorry ok? Though did you forget the other part? I told you if something bad were to happen, I’d protect you from harm’s way. All I need you to do is trust me” Spike said as he looked into her eyes and kissed her hoof, making her smile and look away.
“Ugh fine, I trust you” Sweetie Belle muttered as he kissed her cheek and hugged her.
“Good! Now let’s go find someplace to eat” Spike said as they passed some strange looking houses.
As they walked through the small village, Spike noticed a lot of Zebra presence in the area. He stopped one to ask for somewhere to eat.
“Excuse me sir, but you know somewhere to eat some breakfast?” Spike asked the zebra, who replied in rhyme just like Zecora.
“My my my is that a baby dragon and pony I see? Well my fair dragon the eating grounds is right here, beside me” the zebra rhymed as he pointed to the large hut on his right.
“Thanks for the help!” Spike said as the zebra smiled and left, leaving Spike and Sweetie Belle to go to the hut.
“He rhymed just like Zecora” Sweetie Belle said as they neared the hut.
“Yeah, I guess most zebras do” Spike said as they walked inside, only to see a large amount of Zebras in here as well.
As the two got an open booth at the back, a zebra came to take their order.
“I’d like waffles with blueberry in them, with some grape juice please” Sweetie Belle asked kindly.
“Just some toast, with jelly on it!” Spike asked as the zebra rolled her eyes at him and left to get their order prepared.
"What's her problem?" Spike asked his fillyfriend as she sighed, then began to laugh.
"You didn't say please to her when you ordered ding dong" Sweetie Belle said snickering.
"Oh.." Spike said as Sweetie Belle broke out into more fits of laughter, with Spike soon joining her.
Suddenly, two zebras came up to them who looked pretty rough and cold looking.
“Listen up half pints, we don’t take kindly to your kind here” one of them told Sweetie Belle angrily.
“Yeah, so once you’re done eating here, you two best skidaddle outta here and back to PonyVille where you BELONG!” the other one said angrily as he got up in Spike’s face.
“Hey! You two bullies better back off, or else I’ll have to call the cops” Zecora said smirking as he two backed off of Spike and Sweetie Belle.
“Aw Whatever Zecora, you pony lover!” The two complained as they left the hut.
“Zecora! What are you doing here?” Sweetie Belle asked as Zecora smiled and hugged the filly.
“I could ask you two the same, for two young ‘uns here is very strange” Zecora asked as Sweetie Belle blushed.
“I’m looking for an artifact, one that will lead me to a forgotten Alicorn from the past” Zecora said as Spike looked at her confused.
“Forgotten Alicorn? There’s more than just Celestia, Luna, and Cadance?” Spike asked the zebra, who nodded yes.
“Alicorns are an ancient race, nearly extinct by Discord’s reign” Zecora said as their food came.
“Now enough on my pursuits, explain to me why its just you two here alone, without an adult to watch you?” Zecora asked as Spike and Sweetie Belle looked at each other, hoping the other would have an answer.
“Are you two on the run? If you are I’ll let you stay with me, I won’t ruin your fun” Zecora said as the two smiled brightly, and finished their breakfast in a flash.
“Oh thank you Zecora, you always understand us!” Sweetie Belle said as she hugged the zebra tight.
“I’ll call Twilight later and tell her the news, but for now you two are gonna help me find some clues!” Zecora said as they left the bits on the table and left the hut, in pursuit of the ‘missing’ Alicorn.

Reading my stories and helping me get near 1,000 views has truly been a blessing to me. To thank you for all your kindness and appreciation, I’m gonna leave an extra chapter out there for you.

Now on to the story!
“Ok everypony I just got a call from Zecora, she’s got a hold of them!” Twilight said cheerfully as the team cheered.
“That’s good to hear Twilight, and if Rainbow Dash can stop the Weather Patrol from doing that Thunderstorm over Hollow Shades, we’ll be able to catch them in no time!” Rarity said as she clamped her hooves together, making Twilight smile.
“Yeah, good thing Zecora is over there, I’ll have to thank her for helping us out!” Twilight said as Rarity shook her head in agreement.
Meanwhile, in the row behind them Applejack was interrogating Fluttershy.
“So Fluttershy, nice day we’re havin’ right?” Applejack asked calmly, as the yellow pegasus looked at her and smiled.
“Oh yes Applejack this day has been wonderful! Besides Spike and Sweetie Belle running away, the day has been absolutely wonderful!” Fluttershy said as she smiled and looked back towards PonyVille.
“Oh that’s nice ta hear! You know Fluttershy ah’ve been wondering fer’ a little while now, are you dating my big brother?” Applejack asked the shy mare, as Fluttershy looked at her with shocked eyes and a blush beginning to form on her cheeks.
“Ya’ll don’t have ta’ be afraid to tell me, ah just wanna know” Applejack said sweetly, as Fluttershy took a deep breath in.
“Ok it’s true me and Big Mac are dating! We started after the wedding when he helped me with the bird cages when we really did some other things before we even got those cages, and I always made sure to see him once you and Apple Bloom went to sleep!” Fluttershy said quickly as all her friends looked at her with shock and awe, except Applejack who seemed to be slack jawed.
“Fluttershy are you serious!” Twilight asked as she blushed and smiled.
“Oh yes it's true, although sometimes when we're in his room he gives me it soft and passionate, though in honesty I like it a bit rough at times ” Fluttershy said blushing as Applejack nearly fainted, and Rarity forcefully busted a window open and began to gag.
“Fluttershy what in the HAY is wrong wit’ you? You’re ok with telling me what you two like to do ta’ each other after dark?” Applejack asked with shock and disgust.
“Well you did ask, besides all we ever do is kiss and hug” Fluttershy as they all sighed in relief.
“Ohhh you meant kissing!” Twilight said as Fluttershy nodded and looked at them confused.
“Oh yes and hugging, I don’t think I’ll ever go ‘all the way’ anytime soon, besides my little Angel still needs me! What did you all think I meant?” Fluttershy asked as they all looked at each other and blushed.
“Uh nothing nevermind” Applejack said quickly as she looked away.
As the train continued its route, Pinkie Pie noticed dark clouds beginning to form in the sky. Suddenly Rainbow Dash flew next to her window, and told her to open it, in which she did.
“Wow Dashie, how nice of you to ‘drop in’!” Pinkie said as she began to laugh, only to make the cyan pegasus groan.
“This is no time to be making any jokes Pinkie Pie, we got a serious problem at hoof!” Rainbow Dash said as they all stopped what they were doing to look at her.
“I went to Hollow Shades to find the Weather Patrol like I said I would, but something drastic had come up!” Rainbow said as Twilight looked at her with concern.
“What do you mean Rainbow?” Twilight asked as Rainbow Dash looked down in defeat.
“That’s not a normal Weather Patrol round, that’s a much needed weather demand. That means that if I were to stop them from performing that Thunderstorm, then Hollow Shades plant life would die, and the weak trees would become a hazard to the town” Rainbow said as the other ponies looked at her in shock.
“Oh no, this can NOT be happening!” Twilight said as Fluttershy began to worry.
“Does this mean they could be in....DANGER?” Fluttershy asked nervously as Applejack tried to comfort her.
“Yes Fluttershy, they could be in real danger!” Rarity said nervously as Pinkie Pie began to smile.
“Wait, but they’re with Zecora though! That means they must be safe, right Twilight?” Pinkie Pie asked as Twilight grimaced.
“We can only hope so Pinkie, we can only hope so” Twilight said as they neared the Hollow Shades station.
Meanwhile to Spike and Sweetie Belle.......
“Stick close little ones, for I think the rain has just begun” Zecora said as she felt the rain begin to touch her fur.
“Alright Zecora, though I just wanna know something. Since when did the Friendship Express take branch lines?” Spike asked the zebra, as she began to laugh.
“Oh Spike you silly dragon, you took the Friendship BRANCH Express, that’s why ponies pulled the train wagon!” Zecora said as Spike laughed nervously, and Sweetie Belle knocked him lightly on the head.
“Spike, you bought the wrong ticket! Gosh you’re an even bigger dodo than Scootaloo!” Sweetie Belle said as she began to laugh at her own joke, when suddenly Thunder struck in the sky making her scream in fear.
“Is that Thunder I just heard through my ears? Stick even closer together than, for I fear trouble is near” Zecora said as the trio went on through the forest.
As they continued through the forest, the rain began to pick up, beginning to blur the trio’s vision of each other. As Thunder hit again, it hit a large tree making it’s branches weak above the three companions.
“Check it out guys a cave!” Spike said as he saw some dark caves not too far ahead of them.
“Alright little ones get in the first cave, so we may all be safe from the thunderstorm’s rage!” Zecora said as they began to run to the cave.
Suddenly Thunder struck again, hitting a weak branch causing it to fall at an increased speed towards Sweetie Belle.
“Sweetie Belle watch out!” Spike wailed as he pushed her out of the way and got hit by the branch instead.
“SPIKE!” Sweetie Belle yelled as she desperately tried to find him.
As she quickly ran around the area she tripped on a branch and fell, only to see a weak and battered Spike under it.
“Oh no Spike can you hear me?” Sweetie Belle asked as he lightly nodded his head yes.
“Ok let’s get you out from there” Sweetie Belle said as she used all her strength to pick it up.
“Spike I’m losing grip!” Sweetie Belle whined as Spike quickly slid out as fast as he could from under it, and Sweetie Belle dropped it and began to pant.
“Spike can you walk?” Sweetie Belle asked as he tried to get up, only to fall down again in pain.
“Ugh I can’t I’m in too much pain! You’ll have to leave me here Sweetie Belle” Spike said as he tried to lay on a tree.
“Oh no I won’t! C’mon climb on my back, I’ll carry you all the way to the cave!” Sweetie Belle said as Spike climbed on her back and held her neck.
“Alright Spike, hold on tight!” Sweetie Belle said as she began to make a dash for a cave.
“Alright Sweetie, there’s a cave right there” Spike said as he pointed to a medium-sized cave.
As she rushed in with Spike, she slowed down to a stop to get some rest.
“Phew, you ok Spike?” Sweetie Belle asked him with concern.
“No, I don’t think I’m gonna make it through this” Spike said glumly as Sweetie Belle looked at him with confusion.
“Spike stop it, you’re being sentimental ok? You will make it” Sweetie Belle said as he sighed.
“I don’t think so Sweetie, my body is in so much pain! I can barely breathe and I can hear my heart beating through MY EARS!” Spike said as Sweetie Belle shook her head in disbelief.
“You’re crazy, the hit may have messed with your head!” Sweetie Belle said nervously as she looked down.
“Sweetie Belle stop lying to yourself! You’ve got to be prepared for the worse ok?” Spike said loudly as tears began to blind Sweetie Belle.
“What is wrong with you Spike? You’re sounding like you are ok with dying, like you’re ok with losing me forever! Do you really want that Spike, do you really want to lose me forever?” Sweetie Belle said as she began to cry.
“Of course I don’t want to lose you Sweetie Belle! I love you with all my heart, and always will. Though this is real pain Sweetie, not everypony is gonna take a hit and survive it. I just wanted to let you know that even if I DO die, that I will always love you, and these last few days with you have been the best I’ve ever had” Spike said as Sweetie Belle hugged him tight and cried.
“I love you too Spike, I love you so much” Sweetie Belle said when a warmth suddenly covered both of them, and a green glow began to form on top of Sweetie’s horn.
“Oh my gosh Spike, my horn is glowing!” Sweetie Belle said excited as she noticed his eyes were closed.
“I love you Spike, good night” Sweetie Belle said weakly as she moved herself and Spike closer to the back of the cave, and she fell asleep on Spike’s shoulder.
Meanwhile to the Mane 6..............
“Excuse me sir have you seen a zebra with a pony and a baby dragon?” Twilight asked a zebra as he shook his head ‘no’ and quickly trotted away.
“So much for hospitality” Twilight said as she walked up to a small hut.
"Any zebra here noticed them Twilight?" Applejack asked as she shook her head 'no'.
"Well let me go check that last hut over there" Twilight said as she trotted up to the hut's door step.
As Twilight began to knock on the hut’s door, she was pulled in by an unfamiliar figure.
“Oh my gosh guys, that hut just consumed Twilight!” Pinkie Pie said shocked as Rainbow rolled her eyes at the pink mare.
“No Pinkie, a guy in the hut took in Twilight, now lets get ‘em!” Rainbow said as they all charged towards the door as it suddenly opened again, making them all tumble and fall inside.
“Shiny what the heck are you doing here?” Twilight asked the white unicorn as she smiled and hugged him tightly, as he gently returned one.
“I could ask the same thing, what’re you all doing in Hollow Shades in the middle of a Thunderstorm?” Shining Armor asked as Rarity spoke up.
“We’re looking for my little sister, Sweetie Belle and her lover...Spike” Rarity said coldly as Twilight chimed in.
“Yeah bbbff, and they’re both supposed to be with Zecora” Twilight said as Shining Armor began to feel nervous.
“Yeah uh well that’s the thing, Zecora isn’t here” Shining Armor said as they all gasped.
“What do you mean ‘she isn’t here’ big brother, than where the heck is she and how do you know about her and her whereabouts?” Twilight asked quickly as the room suddenly fell silent.
“Alright Twily let me explain, you see me and Zecora are working together on behalf of Princess Celestia. The Princess wants me to use my magic and her good sense of the area in order to find a ‘missing’ alicorn. She told me she was going to go get some breakfast, but she hasn’t returned!” Shining Armor told them as they gasped again.
“So you mean to tell me my sister could be ANYWHERE in this area?” Rarity said as Shining Armor nodded sadly.
“Are you telling me there is another alicorn?” Twilight asked as Shining Armor nodded.
“Do not fear though, once the Thunderstorm ends, I’ll start a search party for them” Shining Armor told them as Twilight glumly agreed.
“Oh no poor Zecora, now they’re all missing!” Fluttershy said as Applejack nodded.
“Yep, guess we’re all stranded now” Applejack said as they continued to talk amongst each other.
Meanwhile while her friends were talking, Rainbow Dash started to harass the two guards.
“Hey, aren’t you two the same guards from Celestia’s visit to Ponyville?” Rainbow Dash asked as they ignored her.
“Oh ok you wanna play rough, fine!” Rainbow Dash said angrily as she turned around and shook her ‘plot’ in their faces.
“C’mon you know you want this!” Rainbow Dash said as Pinkie Pie began laughing and joined in.
“Oh wait Pinkie Pie, let spit in their faces, that’ll work for sure!” Rainbow Dash said when suddenly Rarity hit them lightly with her saddlebag.
“Stop it you two! That’s vulgar and rude, and not to mention very un-ladylike!” Rarity said sternly as they began to glumly walk back towards the couch.
"Aw c'mon Rarity we were just playing around" Rainbow said as she sat down.
"Yeah, innocent fun, besides we'll have nothing to do here if we don't play with them!" Pinkie Pie said as she sat down as well.
"Hey Rainbow I got something you two can do! How about you bake some cupcakes with Pinkie? I got the mix and the batter in my kitchen" Shining Armor said as Pinkie and Rainbow smiled, saluted and ran off to the kitchen.
"What's up with you and cupcakes lately, you ate a whole batch of them at the wedding!?" Twilight said as Shining Armor smiled and laughed.
"Oh, Cadance got me into them again. She always orders them for dessert for dinner, and they are delicious!" Shining Armor said as Twilight laughed.
"Speaking of Cadance, where is she?" Twilight asked as Shining Armor sighed.
"Oh she's back at the Royal Castle in Canterlot. She thinks I may like Princess Celestia since I'm always getting briefed in her room, and especially after she caught us hugging again before I left. So I guess now she's keeping a close eye on the Princess to make sure I'm not doing an affair" Shining told Twilight and her friends as they all said 'eww' in unison.
"I can't blame her for doing it though, remember Butter Scotch?" Twilight asked as Shining Armor began to blush.
"Yes I remember Butter Scotch, I told you to never bring her up!" Shining told his younger sister as they all laughed for the first time in a while.
“Excuse me everypony, I must use the ladies room!” Rarity said suddenly as she scurried off in a rush.
As she locked the door and looked at the mirror, she began to laugh hysterically.
“Oh sweet Celestia, this’ll be even more easier than I’ve ever IMAGINED, stupid Shining Armor! His foolishness and his sister's obliviousness has let me get all the information I've ever needed to know. Now all I got to wait for is the right time to strike!" Rarity said as her head turned to form Chrysalis.
“This day is going to be perfect...”
Author’s Note: “He who endures patience is a conqueror”. I want to apologize for the postponing the new chapter, but I will have to hold it off until later. I’m back in school, so its harder to update stories. Though this preview is for my upcoming book I’ve been working on, and I need your help to tell me if its good or not, your thoughts and your ideas please. This upcoming story is a multi-chapter(10-20 chapters overall) and I want to make sure it isn’t “boring” or “lame”. So please give me your thoughts, and is NOT an official chapter of “My Sweet Burning Desire”, but involves it. So I hope you all enjoy it!
“Sister, where is thy mother and father?” Luna asked Celestia as she sighed in annoyance.
“Oh Luna you know by now that they’re out on an important meeting!” Celestia told Luna as the younger alicorn began to get upset.
“I miss them ‘Tia!” Luna said as tears began to form in her eyes.
“I know you do little one, and I do too! Although I know they’re gonna come back, they always do. Now stop crying and get ready for bed you silly filly!” Celestia said laughing as she chased Luna to the bathroom.
“You know Celestia you always had a way with fillies” Discord said smirking as she turned around in anger.
“What are you doing here Discord?” Celestia asked angrily, only causing Discord to laugh.
“You know, you’re real cute when you’re mad Celly” Discord said as Celestia ran into his arms and they hugged.
“Hey you better quit kissing up to me Discord, or else you’ll be getting the plunger pucker!” Celestia said as she made the facial expression and noises, making Discord jump back in disgust.
“Eww cut it out ‘Tia, I’ll stop!” Discord said laughing as they sat on the floor and held each other close.
“You’re crazy for doing this you know, if my parents were to come home and catch us...” Celestia trailed off as Discord gently lifted her head up to look at him.
“Oh please, they’re too busy trying to fight my father to do anything to us” Discord said as he began to kiss her.
“Oh Discord you dirty dog you!” Celestia smiled as they continued to kiss, when suddenly two large alicorns appeared behind them.
“CELESTIA WHAT IS GOING ON HERE!” her mother called as they stopped kissing instantly and broke off.
“Um nothing mother I swear, it was just in good fun!” Celestia said as politely as she could.
“GOOD FUN? GOOD FUN! KISSING THE ENEMY IS GOOD FUN CELESTIA?” her father bellowed as he picked up Discord by the throat with magic.
“Daddy don’t hurt him, I love him!” Celestia whined as he tightened his grip on Discord and brought him to his face.
“LET ME EVER CATCH YOU NEAR MY DAUGHTER AGAIN DEMON, AND MUCH MORE IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH HER. WELL LET ME JUST TELL YOU THIS, I’ll PERSONALLY SEND YOU SOMEPLACE WHERE ITS HOT ALL DAY LONG!” her father yelled angrily as his hoof connected painfully to Discord’s face.
“FATHER STOP!” Celestia yelled as he threw Discord out of their home.
“I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU CELESTIA! I FIGHT EVERYDAY TO PROTECT YOU AND YOU GO AND BETRAY ME FOR THAT NO GOOD FOOL?” her father yelled as he used magic to pick her up and bring them face to face.
“CELESTIA IF I DARE CATCH YOU NEAR HIM AGAIN, I’ll KILL HIM AND BANISH YOU!” her father yelled as he dropped her down and walked off in a fit of rage.
“Sister?” Luna called as she ran towards Celestia.
“Sister?” Luna called again.
“SISTER!” Luna called, waking Celestia up from her dream.
“Oh! Good morning Luna” Celestia yawned as she scoped around the room, making sure she wasn’t reliving that painful memory.
“Yes, it is a good morning!” Luna told her sister as she smiled happily, making Celestia uneasy.
“Luna, what has got you so excited?” Celestia asked her sister with concern, while the younger sibling simply smiled and began to hug her.
“Happy Hearts and Hooves Day sweet sister!” Luna said as she tightened her grip on Celestia.
“Oh yes, Hearts and Hooves Day” Celestia muttered as she loosened out of Luna’s bear hug.
“Things just haven’t been the same since then, I hate you Discord” Celestia told herself as Luna left the room and she began to look outside at Discord’s statue with anger.
“Then again, I can’t help but love you as well” Celestia said smiling as she blew a small kiss towards his statue.
“Happy Hearts and Hooves Day my sweet Discord” Celestia said as she wiped away a tear and walked off to prepare for the day.
Meanwhile in PonyVille........
“Good Morning Class! I hope everypony has been having a good morning, because now is time for work!” Cheerilee said as the class groaned in annoyance.
“Oh come now class, just some Math today, then at 11:30 you’ll be able to go spend the rest of the day with your loved ones!” Cheerilee said as the class then began to cheer.
“Here’s some worksheets, just bring it to me when you’re done!” Cheerilee said as she handed out worksheets.
“I’m hoping you three don’t have any Love Poison to give me this year, correct?” Cheerilee asked The Crusader’s as they blushed and shook their heads.
“Oh no Ms. Cheerilee we could never give that to you twice!” Sweetie Belle said innocently as she left to pass more sheets to the class.
“Y-yeah none of that again!” Scootaloo said smiling broadly as she slid some Love ‘Poison’ back in her book bag quickly.
“Scoots what’re ya doin’ with that?” Apple Bloom asked the orange filly as she smiled and blushed.
“Oh its not Love Poison this time, I got it right this time around. Besides its none of your business why I have it!” Scootaloo said as Apple Bloom snatched it up quickly and began inspecting it.
“Hey! Give it back Apple Bloom I need it!” Scootaloo said urgently as she fought hard to get it back.
“No way Scootaloo! Ah need to get rid of this stuff before somethin’ bad happens!” Apple Bloom said fighting her off when suddenly Diamond Tiara took it from her hooves.
“What’s this blank flanks?” Diamond Tiara asked the two as she began to inspect it.
“Looks like some sort of potion to me!” Silver Spoon told her as Diamond Tiara began to smirk.
“Perhaps a LOVE potion, we all know Scootaloo LOVES PIP!” Diamond Tiara proclaimed loudly as the whole class stopped and looked at Scootaloo, who was blushing hard.
“I-I-I do NOT like Pip! I have my reasons for having it and it is NONE of your business Diamond Liara!” Scootaloo said angrily as Diamond just began to laugh.
“Oh you silly chicken, can’t even make a good joke!” Diamond Tiara said smirking as Apple Bloom chimed in.
“Oh hush it Tiara, sometimes ah can’t tell whether you’re a pig or a pony! The only way ah ever figure it out is by looking at that thing on yer’ head that you dare to call a mane!” Apple Bloom said as the class began to snicker.
“Diamond Tiara is a pony? I always thought she was Piglet’s mother in disguise, since she snorts so much!” Sweetie Belle said innocently as the class began to laugh hysterically, even Cheerilee snickered quietly at the comment.
“Y-you shut your mouth Sweetie Belle! I’m gonna make you PAY for saying that!” Diamond Tiara said angrily as she began to get up, only for Cheerilee to intervene.
“Alright that’s enough girls! Everypony get back to work, its 11:15!” Cheerilee said as the class quickly returned to work, except Diamond Tiara.
“Oh you’ll pay all right. You’re gonna pay BIG time” Diamond Tiara said snickering quietly as she slipped the Love Potion in her bag.
As the students finished their work and the clock hit 11:30, the class began to dismiss in order to have quality time with their loved ones.
“Man am I glad that’s over!” Scootaloo said as her two friends agreed.
“Yeah, I felt as if Diamond Tiara was gonna burn a hole right through me with her eyes!” Sweetie Belle said as she widened her eyes to imitate Diamond Tiara, causing her friends to laugh.
As Scootaloo continued to laugh, she bumped into something making her cease her laughter instantly.
“Oh I’m so so...rry?” Scootaloo said as she became face to face with a smiling Pip.
“Hey Scootaloo, Happy Hearts and Hooves Day!” he said smiling as he hugged her and slipped a card in her bag.
“Happy Hearts and Hooves Day to you too Pip” Scootaloo said smiling and a blush forming on her cheeks as he walked away gleefully.
“Well squirt you sure know how to handle a situation!” Rainbow Dash said as Rarity, Sweetie, and Apple Bloom joined her.
“Rainbow Dash!” Scootaloo said smiling as she hugged the cyan pegasus tightly.
“Oh Happy Hearts and Hooves Day Rainbow Dash!” Scootaloo said as she loosened her grip on Rainbow.
“Same to you squirt, I can already tell you’ve been through alot today” Rainbow Dash said as Rarity continued on.
“All three of you have been. So in order to make it up to you me and Rainbow here, Pinkie Pie, Twilight and Applejack are going to let you get whatever you please at SugarCube Corner!” Rarity said smiling as the three girls cheered in excitement.
“Uh Rarity, will Spike be there too?” Sweetie Belle asked innocently, she missed her love Spike and wanted to spend as much time as possible with him today.
“Of course darling, why wouldn’t he be?” Rarity said as Sweetie Belle beamed happily.
“Well what’re we waitin’ for? Move your caboose!” Apple Bloom said as they all walked and laughed.
“Hey Apple Bloom!” Scootaloo said as she snickered.
“Yeah Scoots?” Applebloom asked her friend.
“Are you Granny Smith’s daughter?” Scootaloo asked as she choked back a laugh.
“No ah am not! I don’t even know who my parents even ARE Scootaloo” Apple Bloom said sternly as Scootaloo began to feel bad.
“I’m sorry for the joke there Apple Bloom, it wasn’t really funny anyway. I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings” Scootaloo said as Apple Bloom sighed and hugged her friend.
“Its alright Scootaloo, lets just forget about it” Apple Bloom told the filly pegasus as they ventured forth to SugarCube Corner.
