This is my first Fic, if it goes well, i might continue it.
This is told from a second person narritive
anything in italics are your own thoughts.
You never really thought you would ever make the cut. Wingball was the only thing you were actually really good at. In all subjects you never failed, though your grades were not anything to brag about. You guessed you always said you could pull through.
What made you want to play Wingball? a quest for fame and fortune? Wonder lust?
Nope, the only person who convinced you to join the team was your childhood friend, Thunder Hoof.
3 Months ago
"Why not?" cried Thunder Hoof. "You could be great at it!"
“Because, I don't think I’m cut out for that kind of sport..." you reply, lowering your head to the ground.
"Come on, you'll never know how good you are until we try it", you feel yourself being dragged by the tail, creeping backwards.
Oh come on....
"Thunder! stop that!" you shout at him. You’re surprised that he’s dragging you down the hallway. I hope nopony sees me like this...
Thunder had quite a large build for a stallion of his age and always had the appearance of a tough school bully. The only thing is, his personality was quite the opposite. He rarely ever laid a hoof on anypony, and he was always looking out for you and anypony else.
"I don’t even know how to play, they wouldn't even consider me!" you continue, still being ponyhandled down the corridor.
"its SOOO simple!" said Thunder Hoof with a huge grin on his face. "i read about it in a book, all you need to do is tackle the pony on the other team with the ball and hold it for as long as possible, other than tha-"
You cut him off "EXACTLY! That would be great for you, you’re HUGE, nopony else in school can take you on!"
Thunder hoof paused for a minute, bringing you to a halt but still firmly holding tight to you. "Yeah I guess..." he contemplated for a short moment, "But I’m not much for dodging in the air, you've seen me yourself, haven't you?"
You recall watching him in Aerial Acrobatics and manoeuvres class... not a pretty sight
"Besides, he continues, that’s why I need you to join as well, you're amazing with speed and tricks and all those things..." he starts dragging you again, you don't bother struggling, and you learnt that a long time ago.
"Do I really have a choice in this..." you mumble just loud enough for Thunder hoof to catch it. He stops in his tracks again, he lets go of your tail and you pick yourself up. You turn to him, hopefully to make him think about what he is about to do.
Although when your head did turn to face him, a different sight caught your eye. Thunder was standing uneasy there rubbing the back of his head with his hoof. a small tear wells up in the corner of his eye.
"I’m not trying to force you to do anything Lightning..." he tries to avoid looking you in the face, he always did when he felt you were disappointed in him.”It’s just that, if we make the top team, the school can offer us a scholarship, to Cloudsdale, we co-
"WAIT!" you cut him off again
I should really stop doing that; I really don't want it to be a habit
"Where in Cloudsdale?" you ask, this catches his attention, he stops avoiding you and now is staring at you with a huge grin plastered all over his face.
"This is the best part" he continues "the top team gets to attend Cloudsdale's Flight Academy for the Gifted and Talented" wow, you think to yourself, only the top students in Equestria get to attend. You actually considered the idea of you in the Academy. The things you could do there, the people you could meet, and then it hits you...
"Thunder, you realise we would have to attend the Academy as boarding students right?" You feel slightly disheartened at the idea of having to leave the comfort and safety of your school, your friends but also your family.
"Yeah, I guess that's a downside but we won’t be alone Lightning, we'll have each other, and im sure there are plenty of friends we'll make" replied Thunder, leading both of you to the signup slip
Wait! Since when did we start walking?!?!
You realise since you both started talking about Cloudsdale, both of you continued to walk towards the gym. You consider, how hard it would be to make the top team, the school didn't exactly have the best sports training in Equestria...
DAMN YOU Princess Celestia and your budget cuts!!!!
You hear a voice calling out to you...
"Hey- uh... Lightning...?" A hoof starts to shakes you "Lightning!"
you snap out of your silly daydreaming to see Thunder scribbling your names on the signup sheets. You see a long list of names, mostly ponies you knew but some you never hear your whole life. you read the form, teams and conditions etc...
Tryouts at 09:00, huh? Early start i guess?
"Sooo...." You notice Thunder slowly pace towards the Cafeteria, "i guess we start tomorrow."
You notice a bit of anxiety in him... and yourself for that matter.
"How do you think we’ll do?" he looks to up to you for advice, well actually he looks down to you...
"meh" you reply to him, apathy dripping all over,
"I guess we'll pull through"
The next day, 08:55
You meet thunder by your lockers and head towards the gym.
"You ready for today?" you sense uncertainty in his voice
You feel a sense of confidence fill inside you. Come to think about it, how hard could it be? You were the fastest and most agile Pegasus in school and nobody else you knew in the whole town could take down Thunder in a brawl.
"Yeah I’m ready!" you reply as both of you walk through the gym doors to the outside field. You stand before at least 20 other pegasi, many of whom you know but the rest were all just as huge as thunder and more... intimidating.
WHAT THE BUCK!??!?
You turn to Thunder and pull him close "What the hay man!!!" you tremble as you feel all your confidence drains from you’re small physique.
"Ummm Lightning, the form said it was an interschool tryout, our school was chosen as the tryout centre this year" he replies to you calmly. You notice Thunder Hoof in his calm normal state. That was the thing about him, for a huge menacing pony he sure had a heart of gold and was always calm about everything.
You guessed that’s why you two were best friends from the start. You weren’t exactly the opposite of him, but your traits complimented him. Where he was shy and modest, you were outgoing and confident, at least you thought so. Thunder would always come to you for help and you always depended on him. You both treated each other as equal and respected each other. Even if you two didn't always see eye to eye (literally, he stands way taller).
"Well... how bad could it be?" you turn to see your opposition; these pegasi looked like they could rip you to shreds if they got their hooves on you.
"Just do what you do best Lightning" You turn to listen you your friends inspirational words.
"Thanks Thunder, the same goes for you too" you give a reassuring smile.
"Running away that is"
Buck you Thunder, Buck you....
After the tryouts
"THAT WAS HORRIBLE!!" you cry out, leaning on your locker. Not in shame but in disappointment. You got tackled at least dozen times throughout the whole session.
"ARE YOU KIDDING!?!?!?" Lifting your head you notice Thunder hovering just above you, you've never seen him more exited.
"Thunder, they stampeded me, i was horrible" You start to head towards your usual hangout, thunder hovering close behind. Time to go drown your sorrow in some strong cider non age restricted drink and 20 pints of Rocky road ice-cream.
"Excuse me- Are you two Lightning and Thunder?" You turn expecting to see some participant, probably here to rub it in and disappoint you. You are shocked to see the tryout coach, Coach Speed Wing smiling at both of you like you were him newest trophies.
"Yes sir!" you weren’t happy but that didn't mean you couldn't show some respect and interest at school; that’s what your parents had always thought you. You may be pissed, the world may be out to get you but it doesn't hurt to show some kindness and respect to others.
“I was watching both of you two particularly closely..."
Great, the *I’m sorry didn’t couldn't make the team good try, maybe next year speech*
"And I would like to offer you two a place out of the 5 we had. I saw some amazing determination and attitude in the field today," he turns to Thunder you was staring right at him for the last half minute wide open.
"where did you get that amazing body and strength, Thunder?" you slap thunder other the back of his head, he immediately breaks from his trance and replies.
"umm... my dad sir"
"Well... I have never seen a stallion as strong as you in a long time"
"Like who Mr Speed wing?" exclaimed Thunder Hoof, clearly he’s speaking faster than he can talk.
"Awww... just some young red stallion in a small farm... i can't even remember the name, Ponyville or something, I dunno just an Earth Pony.”
He then looks to face me; he walks by and ruffles my mane. "And you!"
Wow, "Yeah?" really. Just shut up now....
"I have yet to see a Pegasus with more raw talent and determination to win a game ever" He was telling some truth, I always wanted to win... well anything non-academic.
"There were times when your techniques could have used some refinement but i know the Academy can help you with that"
You stare at him confused, there were many other pegasi who played better than both of you
"Why us sir?"
"Because”, he looks at you closely, now with an expression of complete seriousness. "I want ponies who I know, want to play Wingball badly and be good at it. I want somepony who wants to fight for what they want." By now you feel slightly confident in yourself and equally as embarrassed...
"So, I take it you two will accept my offer? Cloudsdale could really do with ponies like you now" You return your focus to the coach, repeatedly switching your gaze between him and Thunder. Smeared on your friends hoof is an expression of half happiness and half with an almost sincere look of begging "Can weeeee PLEAAAASE?"
You chuckle ever so slightly, even if you had second thoughts about Wingball, you would never turn down an opportunity of a lifetime like this. "You know Thunder? You should look at yourself in the mirror?"
This directs the coach’s attention to Thunder Hoof now somewhat sporting a bright red hue on his face. His brown coat makes it easy to spot when blood rushes to his face.
Coach Speed Wing takes this as his cue to rejoin the conversation, "I guess I will be seeing you in 3 months time then ehh?" This surprises both you and Thunder Hoof, both of you stare at him, mouths hanging open.
"OHH! Don't worry about being transferred so soon; I’ll worry about all the paperwork and bureaucracy. You two only need to pack your things and get there."
Still unconvinced by this sudden change you decide to interrupt, "What about joining halfway through the semester? Won’t we be behind on work?"
"oh no, heh" Speed Wing laughs out, "The Academy has a special programme to help with students that enter halfway, you two will have extra courses to catch up with the rest. With both of your talent, i expect you two to go f-"
You turn to see, your friend slumped on the floor, all this excitement was too much to handle... well, for a pony like him. His mouth was still open, tongue hanging out *Eww* and you notice his wings slightly unfolded and it was clear he was.... excited.
"Uhh, I think I’ll leave you two to break the news to your families. I'll go and finish filling up the relevant forms. I hope I’ll see you guys progress in the future, no in fact I want to see you on the Junior National League Team in a year's time"
You only barely caught the last part as he departed down the hallway, though there was no mistake in what you heard.
The National League....
Everypony knew only the finest in Equestria Play for the Junior National League Team.
Now... you think to yourself, how to get this mammoth of a pony from here to the nurse's office. "Oh Well" you say to yourself, "I Always like a good challenge"
Next chapter: Lightning and Thunder take to the skies for Cloudsdale and start a new life as boarding students. They meet some interesting people on the way.
Yay introduction over. I hope you enjoyed the first taste of Lighting's life.
More explanation and plot development next chapter. I have planned the entire plot although if you wish to see any extra time in his school career, i can include that, Proms, parties etc. I might even write another story from Thunders perspective if people like this.
Please comment on what was good if you like it but also what could change.
I feel any comment specifically not pertaining as helpful and just hate spam will be deleted at my discretion.
Hi all! welcome to my second chapter for this series (first actual).
Enjoy the story and please comment, like or favourite.
Chapter 1: Cloudsdale Academy
You wake up from your sleep and slowly crack your eyes open. You examine your surroundings quickly, a small bunk bed and your packed belongings in the luggage compartment above and opposite of you. The bright daylight shines through the crack in the curtains.
Oh right, I’m on the train to Cloudsdale, Wait where’s Thunder-
Never mind, he's above me?
A quick hop out of you bunk confirms your earlier suspicion. Thunder Hoof is sleeping in the bunk above you. As you look closely, he is sleeping in such an odd position you decide it is not worth waking him up. You go over and quickly draw the curtains. The refreshing sunlight fills the room illuminating all the cracks. You hear Thunder shuffle about behind you as he acclimatizes to the new light conditions.
Don't give me any morning drama. Sheesh, Thunder is an interesting roommate, to say the least
You think to yourself, might as well get used to this, were going to be roommates for the next 2 and a half years. This thought makes you think back to your school and your friends and family. You and your parents were not very emotional about you leaving for Cloudsdale, not to say they didn't care. Your parents could not be more proud their son was studying in the most Prestigious flight schools in Equestria. Your parents just don't do emotional drama...
Looking at the clock in your room
You decide you still have an hour until the train stops and you need to fly up to Cloudsdale. The trip from your town had been a short uneventful trip. The town you came from is hardly on the map. It's not that’s it's small, it's just nothing happens there. You think of ways to pass the remaining time.
Well... i guess i could just wait here and watch the scenery go by...
You hear a soft quite moan coming from behind and above you. You decide not to bother seeing what Thunder is up to.
uhhh... everypony needs their beauty sleep I guess?
You hear some soft moaning coming from Thunder.
You really do not want to think what Thunder is dreaming about in his deep sleep. You turn around and fly quietly to his bunk. In the mess of sheets and pillows, blood rushes to your head and cheeks.
You're not the only one. You see Thunder's wings fully unfurled and pressed against the wall of the carriage.... as well as other parts *GAH*
OK, I've seen TOO much!!!
"Eep!" you decide not to spend another minute in his company and leave for the diner carriage. You decide to leave Thunder alone in the carriage. You reasoned; sometimes some pony’s gotta do what somepony needs to do...
15 minutes later Diner Carriage
"Hey!!! Morning Flash"
You easily recognise that voice and decide not to turn around. You quickly finish up your morning salad and greet your best friend.
"Hey Thunder, you sleep well?"
"Yeah, that bed was really comfortable" The turn's to the waitress and orders breakfast, at the same time stretching his wings.
Comfortable!?!?! I bet it was....
You decide to poke some fun at your old time friend. Just to keep him on his toes, plus he deserves a bit of teasing.
"Soo... manage to keep your sheets clean?" you say just slightly above a whisper.
You see results immediately; he starts to blush heavily and stares at you with pointed daggers. Any other pony would probably have died from the resulting heart attack by now; anybody left alive would be crushed in the following pummelling. But, you know Thunder would never actually hurt anypony, though... why take the risk? You inch ever so slowly away from him hoping to change the subject.
"What? It did look like you were enjoying yourself..." This causes Thunder to quickly change from anger to his usual shyness. He avoids eye contact with you but has recomposed himself.
"Well, to answer your question" his voice now goes down to a barely audible whisper...
"That's just disgusting Thunder" You bury your face in your hooves, by now a few patrons in the carriage are listening in to both of you. They only heard your question and couldn't hear what Thunder replied with, but judging by your reaction, they understood the situation....
Thunder now starts to laugh as both of you make a quick exit back to your carriage. You leave a few bits on the counter as a tip and quickly hoof it to the door. You try not to imagine walking into a room greeted by this biological... hazard.
"That room better be clean by the time we walk in" You notice Thunder eye you with the worst poker face you could imagine.
"Uhh... I kind of put my sheets onto your bed, Lightning" You turn to Thunder with a look of horror on your face. "WHAT!!?!?
"There wasn't any other place to put them; it was bad enough I had to wipe the walls."
OHHH SWEET CELESTIA. Please shut him up, I don't even want to go in now.
After departing from the train, both Thunder and yourself hastily fly towards the Academy. It wasn't hard to miss; it was only one of the largest grounds in all of Cloudsdale. You've never seen so many other pegasi in such a big city before. Both of you take some time to enjoy the scenes Cloudsdale has to offer. The breathtaking scenery and architecture astounds you, knowing most pegasi don't have much of a taste for culture, besides classical pegasi culture.
Passing a quiet cafe though the streets you notice a young couple outside, passionately making out at their table. Even from this distance you can clearly hear the audible moans of love as they kiss in a warm embrace. You take little notice to this as you've seen this scene many times back in your town. Although the passing glance did get catch Thunder Hoof's attention.
He quickly catches up to you with a genuine look of question on his face. You almost guess what he wants to ask you. But you decide to let him speak first.
"Hey... umm.... Lightning? Uhhhh-"
"Yeah Thunder?" you slow you pace down to allow him to talk comfortably
"Do you think you'll find that special somepony in Cloudsdale?"
You aren’t taken by surprise by his question. He already knows your stance of relationships when it came to mares back in your old school.
"Well I would know if I find that special somepony when I meet her Thunder" you reply quite bluntly.
Thinking back to the past, it had never been very hard to hook up with a mare in school. You did get quite a few offers and countless of desperate fillies asking you out during the prom but you knew none of them really liked you for who you are.
Granted, good looks and fitness does help you find somepony
You decide to return the question to Thunder; he also shares the same situation you're in. In Fact both of you never took anypony on a date or at prom. Both of you would almost always be together. You weren’t gay, and Thunder certainly wasn't You learnt that after uncovering his collection of porn magazines and DVDs under his bed one day.
Nopony saw it that way either. But both of you never really did pay particular attention to mares at school.
"Soo... how about you Thunder? You wish you had a special somepony"
Thunder keeps his cool appearance and continues at your pace “I don't really know Lightning, but I don't know if there's anypony out there for a person like me"
What he was saying was partly true; Thunder was not exactly the outgoing kind of pony. He preferred to keep his emotions and thoughts to those close to him. Though... with his build, you imagine it difficult for anypony to resist that hunk of a stallion.
You notice that you're quickly approaching your destination. Looking up from where you were, the main building itself was as large as city hall. The ornate feature of the building clearly shows the amount of money parents, sponsors and the government had pumped into this Academy.
Both of you enter the administrative office and the receptionist quickly directs you to the student transfer department. Both of you wait patiently outside the office while the admissions officer is on his way. You notice his name written on the frosted glass of his office door.
Well... I guess it's because he's looking for stars?
You laugh quietly to yourself as the seconds tick by, you were never much of a comedian but even this was quit good to you. Shortly you are quickly greeted by a medium sized yellow Pegasus who look liked he just graduated from school.
"Good morning gentlecolts" he greets you with a loud but gentle welcome. He quickly introduces himself and leads us into his office.
"I’m sure you two are just as excited about joining our Academy as I am of having such brilliant students such as yourselves" He quickly goes over both of our records and explains more about our scholarship. You remember what coach speed wing said 3 month prior to this.
"In fact I want to see you on the Junior National League Team in a year's time"
"I’m guessing both of you are tired from your trip to get here" both of you reply only with a silent nod.
"well I’ll show you to your dorm rooms and by lunch I’ll arrange for somepony to give you two a tour around the school" You and Thunder take that as your signal to get up and follow Solar Chaser.
Dorm room 22-2B 09:45
You look up at the dorm both you and Thunder Hoof would be staying in. Given the amount of money someponies parents are forking out, the dorm itself is quite well kept, low density and best of all, spacious. Heading down the corridor you notice the intervals between room doors, suggesting the rooms themselves are large.
With a small set of keys Solar chaser opens room number 22 and leads you into your room. You quickly notice your space is about as large as a good sized apartment.
"This is your commons area, you have a small kitchen, the living room, and dining space all fully furnished. You quickly notice many of the items and furniture as brand new, this was high quality products too.
"HEY!! Lightning, they stocked the fridge!!" you look at Thunder pillaging the fridge and checking every other item stocked in the commons area.
Sheesh, next thing you know, Thunder's getting a wingboner over a new room
Turning back to him, your eyes sadly confirm what your brain just told yourself. You decide not to pursue that line of thought and follow Solar Chaser into your room.
"Here you have your own bedroom, once again fully furnished and complete with en suite bathroom. There’s a small balcony at the window, and you get a great view of the grounds from here." Solar chaser continues to show many of the features in your room.
At a quick glance you notice the rooms here all get a queen sized double bed. You realise Thunder had noticed your face when you saw the bed. You prepare for the inevitable...
Don't say it....
"Hey lightning, I noticed you were checking out your bed"
You're going to say it...
A huge grin quickly spreads between both his ears, he quickly gets Solar chaser in between both of you.
Why do I even put up with you...
"Don’t get any ideas now lightning, we all know you make a lot of nois-" You quickly charge towards him. But he quickly runs out the door into the commons area
"I'LL KILL YOU THUNDER!!!!!"
You quietly hear Solar Chaser chuckle from behind and quickly add in
"Oh don't worry you two" both of you momentarily pause to listen to Solar Chaser. You think to yourself, this must be important.
"The bedrooms come with complete soundproofing, nopony even right outside the door could hear a thing from inside. That goes the same for your bathrooms." with that he burst into a fit of laughter and starts to move to leave your dorm. You return to your futile attempts to injure Thunder.
"Oh a final thing about dorm rules-" you both again pause and pay attention to Solar, "Colt's and Fillies in their own dorms by 11PM"
With that Solar leaves your dorm and Thunder breaks into another fit of laughter. You decide to stop trying to pummel Thunder and decide to blow off steam in your shower. You remember, your punches don't really actually hurt a person like him anyway.
Thunder decides to lie back on the sofa and watch some CSI:Canterlot on his new favourite TV. You return to your room, LOCK the door and head for a long warm shower...
Well I guess somepony's gonna have to blow off steam sometime...
11:30 ....After some fun time in the shower....
Author's note: NO he did not spend over an hour in the shower ^_^
You pop out of your bedroom, you notice Thunder Hoof shovelling mountains of popcorn into his mouth while watching the season Finale on CSI. Ever since that show first released months ago, it's become a national hit. Fans were so desperate for a season 3, they broke into the production studio, hoping to get a glance at the latest season. The company recently announced only 13 episodes would be made for the next season.
"Hey uhh... Thunder?"
"SHHHSHSH this is the best bit" his eyes stay glued to the screen. This is the scene where the investigator says *we need to talk* and the pony hoofs it out the backdoor.
how is that exciting, they always run....
"I’m just going to head out for a while, I’ll be back by 12"
You decide to explore the surrounding area around your dorm. You quickly realise that the grounds are quite deserted at this time of day. The absence of half the student body suggests there in their lessons or on a lunch break. The Academy ran lessons more like lectures, not all the student's would be in a lesson at 1 set time. As a result, you often had many free periods during the day, though students require a pass to leave campus. You take to the sky briskly, using only a fraction of your wingpower to quickly ascend to the optimum hovering altitude.
I wonder how good the ponies here are at Wingball, or at flying at least...
"What?" you quickly turn around, nothing would hit you that quickly you reckoned. But clearly you never see it coming, it smashes into you at full speed and hurtles you towards the earth below. You are quickly falling out of the sky, with something else grappling on to your rear hooves.
Taking into practice everything you learned about recovering from a midair collision you quickly try to slow down your descent, furiously flapping your wings and trying to get into a glide pattern. You try and use your wings to the fullest capabilities.
It wasn’t enough. Whatever had hit you was adding to your weight and further reducing your aerodynamics. You land in a small grassy field about 1 Kilometre from your dorm. You quickly try to pick yourself up but realise whatever had grabbed onto you had landed on top of your chest, besides the pain of the fall, this thing was just as heavy as a pony. After regaining your senses, you realise this thing was in fact a pony, a bright cyan, rainbow maned pegasi. You blush slightly as she quickly regains consciousness.
"Umm could you get off me" she stares at you and quickly looks down to where she is lying.
"HEY! Get off me freak!" She badly tries to hide her now bright red, rosy cheeks. You quickly get a glance at her eyes. Looking at her face you notice she has a pair of dark, almost wine coloured magenta eyes that seemed to compliment her coat. You now felt slightly aroused as you wings begin to unfurl.
come on wings!! NOT NOW!!!
You try and take your mind of it and attempt to make conversation. "Looks like you failed a textbook manoeuvre miss-" She quickly shuts your mouth with a hoof, smacking you in the cheek in the process.
Ahh.. The rough type, no wait... stop thinking that
"WHAT?!?!" she gets of your chest and stands up
FINALLY, thank you...
"Look here rookie, you couldn't even manage to recover from a low speed collision, and anypony could have done that"
WHAT!?!? She’s clearly the pony to blame.
"Low speed! you couldn't even see where you were going, plus, weren’t you pulling me down, another failure on your part"
She quickly hides he face again, she's clearly upset over what happened, even if she knows she was wrong. You quickly try and apologize, you always felt a sense of guilt when you made another pony feel bad, even if it wasn't your fault, and your dad always taught you to be a gentlecolt.
Damn you, righteous feeling of obligation.
"Look, I guess we both made some mistakes and I’m sorry for not avoiding you" You put your forehoof onto her shoulder trying to get her to look at you
Did that even make sense
She starts to look back up towards you, you can't help but stare into her dark magenta eyes. There wasn't anypony else you ever knew or saw who had such deep colour and emotion in their eyes. You decide to avoid eye contact again, in an attempt to keep your wings down.
"Well I’m sorry too, I guess I was being to awesome up there."
So much for honour....
Now that she mentions it... she was travelling quite fast. You couldn't even dodge her coming towards you. No other pony you saw could travel that fast that no otherpony had time to react. You take this as an opportunity to get acquainted with her, after all, you did need to know how fast ponies here are.
"Say, you were actually quite fast up there" you manage a sincere smile, she immediately perks up and jumps into a pose.
"Hell yeah! The name's Rainbow Dash, fastest flier in Equestria, nopony can go faster than me!" you can't help but challenge her title. You yourself had won many awards in speed and manoeuvrability.
"Actually, I’m quite fast myself, the name's Lightning Flash, and I bet I could beat you in a race" She quickly jumps into a start position. Happy to respond to a challenge
"Oh Yeah well, how about we race to that building over there, I gotta be somewhere anyway" you both line up neck and neck.
"Ready?" she calls out "on Go"
Both of you stand poised to take off. You stand in a braced, standing position to get a good head start while Rainbow Dash appears to be lower down in more of a pounce position. You can’t help but get slightly excited at this sight of this
Damn you Rainbow Dash and damn you Teenage hormones...
Ok, don't go too easy but put some effort into this, she might not be too bad
She certainly has speed, I’ll give her that, but has she got the endurance
Hehe,.... endurance. *imaginary facehoof*
She quickly jumps up and takes off just as she calls out go. You stand there bewildered, you're surprised no otherpony has every left you in a trail of dust...
You set off, hoping to catch up on some lost ground, you push your wings to give you the boost you need. Surely enough you manage to close in on her and are now only slightly behind. You can't help to feel slightly embarrassed to have been left behind at the start of a race.
"Heh, not bad for a rookie..." she turns to you and gives a cheeky smile.
"Cheat" you quickly blow a raspberry and take off in front, using your extra wing power. You close in on the finish line, you look to your sides and see nopony there.
Wow, she had me on a run, but I got it in the bag
"BOOM! Did it in ten seconds flat!" she starts to shake her hooves in the air, as if she just won an award. She then turns back to you, a smug on her face.
"Nice try rookie, nopony's beaten me yet"
HOT DAMN she's good.... I guess I do have competition.
"If it makes you feel any better rookie, you’ve come closest to me ye-" She turns around only to see you staring at her flank. You realise how compromising this scene looks and quickly avert your eyes. The last thing you want to be caught doing now is eyeing somepony's ass.
"Wait!! I know how this looks like but hear me out!" You quickly try to cover your face with your forehooves. You somehow predicted the inevitable
Shit... oh god...
You feel a hoof what you across the head. You were only trying to see what her Cutie mark looks is. Coincidentally, it's quite similar to yours. A rainbow coloured bolt coming from a cloud. Besides the shape of the cloud, the facing of the cutie mark and of course the colour of the bolt, yours is almost identical.
"Pervert..." She tries to avoid eye contact but doesn't shift away.
"I was just looking at your cutie mark...." you feel a lump forming on your head.
I’m going to need to cover that up...
"Sure..." She meets your eyes in a gaze and seems unimpressed by your explanation.
I deserved that.. Kinda
"Anyway I’m late for my thing, Solar Chaser is going to kill me if I’m late" She now starts to look quite annoyed. Obviously she doesn't quite like work, nor has the best relationship with staff.
"What were you supposed to do? Where are you meant to be" you try and help her out seeing as you owe her that much.
"I’m supposed to meet two stupid new transfer students and give them a tour of the Academy. Damn, I hate meeting new students, they always think their better than me, or try to hit on me..."
"Hey..Ahh Rainbow Dash?"
"What dorm are they in?"
She unraffles a piece of paper from behind her wings. "Says here, ohh... uhhhh. There in Dorm 22-2B" she folds the paper back up and gestures for you to follow her
"Come on, these students are staying in like, the best dorms, you wanna follow me?" she tries to think about why she wants me to follow
AWW man, she's gonna hate me....
"Uhh, I could use some help guiding them, plus their probably some nerd pony who can’t even fly anyway" That last remark stings you. You feel bad for keeping people in the dark.
What do I do...!?!?
"What? Aren't you coming?"
"I’m the new student in Dorm 22-2B

Chapter 2: Meeting new people
She stares at you with a guilty look. You don't know what to do. You've never have this much interaction with a mare before. While trying to create a plan of action, you nervously rub the back of your neck with your hoof.
"Uhhh... yeah sorry to kee-"
don't cry.... be a Stallion, take the pain!
"OWWW!" A tear wells up in your right eye.
"Jerk... why didn't you tell me!" Her face shows a mixture of emotions. She is partly angry at you for not telling her earlier but also slightly guilty about what she said and that she didn't ask herself.
You continue to nurse the bruise on your head while following Rainbow Dash. "I’m really sorry, but we were caught up in the moment of the race remember?".
That quickly makes her perk up. Somehow you always know the right thing to say to ponies. "Hey you're right. I guess we were kind of having fun." but before she continued she quickly turns back to guilt when she faces to you and notices some blood coming from the wound.
"OH MY GOSH, SOOO SORRY, I REALLY DIDN-"
This time you cover her mouth with your hoof, you've had worse injuries and you can take the beating. You continue to try and reassure her you're ok as you walk towards your dorm.
"Sooo.... how come you transferred here halfway through the year?"
You think for a minute to try and explain it in a way without making it sound like you're bragging. Sometimes, maybe you're just too modest.
"Uhh... me and my Friend are playing for the school Wingball team... we got in with an athletic scholarship"
Her face lit up at the last part.
"REALLY?!?!?" She turns back to you waiting for further confirmation. "I'm here to on an athletic scholarship, all the scholars share the same timetable together"
You begin to imagine spending every class with Rainbow Dash. Both your competitive natures are bound to conflict. Your wings slightly rise at the thought of spending time with Rainbow Dash, though not enough to be noticed. You decide to question why Rainbow is so keen on being in the same class.
"Why are you soo you excited?" This quickly causes her to blush heavily again, she decides to walk faster to avoid you seeing her face.
"You know, if you weren’t injured. I'd probably have hit you again" You decide to continue your plan. You run towards your dorm screaming, you pound the dorm room door screaming at the top of your lungs.
"OH GOD HELP MY THUNDER, SHE'S GOING TO KILL ME!" She buys it and charges towards you, anger and embarrassment in her face.
She knocks you to the ground and grabs you by the neck and pushes you down. You hope she isn't actually going to strangle you to death, in front of your own dorm. She continues to lean on you pushing you against the door. You repeatedly bash the door, hoping Thunder hasn't fallen asleep.
Suddenly, you fall backwards into the room, the cause being Thunder had opened the door, removing your support. You lay there on the ground, with your hooves trying to Hold hack Rainbow Dash, who was now fully on top of you.
Aww great timing Thunder.....did you plan this?
"Kinky..." Thunder stands just next to both of you smiling a huge grin on his face.
*Pomf?* the Hell???
You look back up towards Rainbow Dash, now sporty and full erect wingboner. The sudden realisation causes her entire face to change to the same shade as her eyes. She looks at you in embarrassment and does the only thing she can think of.....
Your vision fades to darkness as you fade into unconsciousness. Before you black out you can only think of one thing...
She does have strength....
15 minutes later
You come to on your couch, you feel a slight stinging sensation in your head and reach towards it. You’re met with a sharp cold sting as you realise you have an ice pack over your bruised noggin. You think to yourself, move many IQ points you have dropped just today.
"You're lucky I took first aid for extra credit Lightning" You look left and notice Thunder washing his hooves in the sink.
"Oh, thanks you very much nurse Thunder Hoof" you give the best sarcastic tone you can. Thunder only replies with a cheeky smile.
"That's Doctor Thunder Hoof thank you very much!" he trots over to you and removes the icepack from your head. You quickly sit up and scan the room. You notice Rainbow Dash sitting in the corner chair looking away from both of you. Once again that guilty feeling popped up in the back of your throat.
1 day in a new school and I’ve already upset a mare, twice.
You try and recall why you acted like that. In your whole life you were never as reckless or daring. You get up of the chair and slowly walk towards Rainbow Dash.
"You gave your marefriend quite a scare there Lightning" That comment made you gag slightly. But before you could reply, you hear a gasp from Rainbow Dash.
"I'm not his marefriend" She quickly stands up and walks towards Thunder.
"Oh, you don't go that way... i see, it's just that, the way you were 15 minutes ag-" you try and warn Thunder not to provoke her but then remembered who you were talking to.
You sit there watching as Rainbow Dash Furiously hovers above Thunder whacking him with her hooves. Unsurprisingly, he doesn’t even flinch.
"Hehe... stop that, it tickles" You can't help but laugh out loud at this. Rainbow who clearly gave up hope turned back at you. The stare in her eyes make you remember what just happened. As she briskly walks towards you try and cover yourself with your hooves again
Please don't hurt me!
She wraps her hooves around you and locks you in a tight hug. You feel her warm cheeks on your neck and start to blush heavily at the warm feeling. Your arms are also locked tight by your sides and you decide to just let her continue.
"I'm sorry" she manages to whisper quietly to your ear. You try and change the subject and want to move on. You hope nopony else was feeling as uncomfortable in this situation as you did.
She looks up at you.
"Weren’t you supposed to be giving us a tour?"
She begins to quickly blush and quickly removes her hooves from your shoulder. You sense she feels slightly embarrassed when she turned round and saw Thunder Hoof just staring at the both of you.
"Oh yeah... come on guys" you quickly turn to Thunder in surprise, Thunder's parents also believed in making Thunder a real gentlecolt. You give a thunder a look of *aren't you supposed to do something*
He quickly looks at you, visibly puzzled. "Lightning, you were out cold for 15 minutes" he looked towards Rainbow Dash who was not showing a small smile. "We've introduced ourselves already"
You feel slightly stupid for not realising that and quickly head for the door with Thunder and Dash.
12:45 Main Student Building
For the last half hour, Rainbow Dash has been showing you around the main areas such as you classes and the facilities around. For a school specially teaching flight, you find it ironic how the school itself was on the ground and how many ponies walked around.
Rainbow lead the group as she points out the various landmarks and classes. She's very brief in the explanation and you now realise why she doesn’t seem very popular with Solar Chaser.
As you and Thunder follow closely behind Rainbow he pulls himself closer to your ear.
"Psst... Lightning, i have to tell you something" You look towards Thunder, his face shows he has a clear concern. You go in closer to listen to what he's about to whisper.
"Dat Ass" DAMNIT THUNDER Shut u-
You quickly try your best to hide your arousal. In the end you settle by walking behind Thunder. He gives you a smug look and only replies with one sentence.
"That was for the train"
I hate you Thunder but.... touché
Rainbow quickly turns back to see you partly masked behind Thunder "what did you guys say?"
"Oh nothing..." Thunder may be an ass... but he's still your friend.
"You guys want to see anything else?" she genuinely asks both of you. Both of you look at each other blankly.
The growling from your stomach and Thunder's is the only answer she needs.
"To The cafeteria then. I'm starving too, all this walking, and talking and pointing"
wow... she can reeaaly be lazy...
Rainbow and Thunder go for a daffodil sandwich while you opt for some heart clogging hay fries and a hay bacon sandwich. You 3 head over to an empty table to enjoy your meal. Rainbow Dash asks you and Thunder more about where you came from and what you two did in your old school. Halfway through the conversation you are interrupted by a commotion a few table away.
"I SAID, HAND OVER YOUR BITS" a loud voice echoes through the dining hall
"COME ON, ALL OF IT"
Thunder, being the tallest of the 3 of you, can clearly see what's going on. You and Decide to look and see what’s going on.
Three tables away you noticed a dark brown Pegasus with a mid length cream mane pounding his hooves onto the table. Hiding in terror opposite him is a small light yellow Pegasus with long bright pink mane. From what you hear and see he’s taking the poor mare's lunch money. You see her start to well up in finally and decide to step in.
Somepony's got to end this
But before you could move in, you notice Thunder Hoof, approach him from behind. He towers a good foot taller than the brown Pegasus and almost 10 times as intimidating. He places a hoof on the brown colt's back to get his attention.
"Excuse me, what do you think you're doing" His voice expresses genuine inquiry yet set in a stern tone. The brown Colt is quick to respond
"Mind your own business" he continues to collect the bits laid on the table and proceeds to turn around. As soon as he faced Thunder the hall suddenly went silent. The tough stallion clearly didn’t expect a pony like Thunder to approach him.
"Your name?" Thunders voice still stayed moderately quite for a situation like this.
"Uhh.. D-Dumb-Be-Bell..." The brown Pegasus clearly knew when he was out matched. Thunder's face quickly turned to one of pure anger.
"ARE THOSE YOUR BITS YOU'RE HOLDING?!?!!?" The sudden outburst caused everypony around to take a step back, or two... or several.
"N-n-no sir.!" Dumb-Bell quickly dropped the bits back onto the table. His hooves shaking with pure terror. Thunder approached him and picked him up with one hoof. His voice went back to a small whisper.
"And if i ever see you taking anypony's bits again I’ll makes sure you leave the room on a stretcher!" you could see the brown colt almost break into tears. "DO I MAKE MYSLEFT CLEAR?" The Pegasus could only nod furiously, to scared and shocked to conjure any other word.
"NOW SCRAM" With this he quickly made a dash to the exit and flew off out of anypony's view. Thunder stood there watching for a moment before collecting every single Bit on the table and floor, placed them into a small pouch and drop them in front of the yellow Pegasus. The mare, had in fact been in the same position this whole confrontation.
"Ehhh... your bit's miss" Thunder stood lower in an attempt to meet the shy Pegasus at eye level. Before he could say another word she quickly leapt out of her seat.
"Eep!" she quickly galloped away out of the food hall in the opposite direction before anypony could move a muscle. Everybody stood there in shock looking at Thunder. In response, Thunder looked towards me, looking for some answers.
"Was it something i said?" you could only reply with a shrug as most of the crowd dispersed back to eating lunch.
"THAT WAS AWSOME DUDE!" Rainbow Dash gestured for a high hoof and Thunder was quick to return it. "Nopony's ever stood up to Dumb-bell before. Though you might wanna watch out, he does have a gang..." Thunder wasn’t paying attention. The just stood up, picked up the bag of bits and quietly walk out the hall. Rainbow and I followed behind.
"Where are you going?" I quickly stuffed a mouthful of hay fries and walked beside Thunder.
"I’m going to return these bits to their owner" Thunder Hoof quickly made it to the administrative office and handed in the bits to the mare at the desk. After shortly describing the small bright yellow pony and confirming the picture, the mare simply said, "thank you for the good deed". Thunder only nodded and left.
Some time later Your Dorm
You, Thunder and Rainbow Dash make it back to your dorm without further event. By now Rainbow Dash has shown you most of the Academy you need to know, or that interested you. You notice the late afternoon sun start to close in on the horizon. Most other ponies have finished any other sort of class and are now either enjoying their free time off or loitering about on the school grounds.
Your turn back and see Rainbow Dash nervously hovering by the doorway, Most likely wanting to leave by now.
"Do you guys need anything else then?"
"No, I guess were done for today" You give her a small smile to thank her for her effort and company today.
"Umm... I'll see you tomorrow then? First period?" You finally remember to ask about the school timetable. Coming to lessons late wouldn't be a good start to your new school career.
"When does lesson's start?" Rainbow Dash quickly turns back and scratches her head.
Come on... don't tell me you don't even remember when lessons are?!?!
"Oh right!" The gears in her brain have started moving again and she manages to recall the time periods throughout the day.
"But you only mostly need to know when school starts and when your last lesson ends. First one starts at eight and scholars usually finish just after three." With that she heads towards the door and begins to close to door.
Before she shut it, I quickly remembered i never thanked her for the tour and lunch. I quickly run towards the exit hoping to get to her.
"Hey Rainbow!" She stops in her tracks. The door is only barely open. "I wanted to thank you for what you did for Thunder and me today". She doesn’t reply, quickly turned and flew away from our dorm.
Huh? Wonder why she was in such a rush to leave?
You turn back to Thunder who was by the small dining table, he had a quill and some paper, quickly scribbling down something.
"Whatcha up to?" He is taken by surprise at your sudden question and entrance.
Was i really that startling?
"Uhh... I'm just writing a letter for the folks back home. I don't want to worry them so I’m just making it short." You decide not to bother him about this and instead, you choose to retire to your bedroom.
The next day 06:00 Your Dorm
*BEEP BEEP BEEP*
You quickly sit up and furiously rub your eyes, you look around for the source of the noise that interrupted your amazing dream you were having. Looking to your bedside table, you realise your alarm clock was just doing its job. You quickly reset it and hop out of your bed.
Having slept in 1 position for the whole night had given your wings an ache so you decide to give them a quick stretch. You head over to your window to draw the blinds, while doing so you feel the strong burning sunlight penetrate into every corner of the room. The sudden change in light almost blinds you temporarily and you take a moment to regain your sense of sight.
GAH! Celestia, did you have to make the sun so bright?
You imagine a morning shower would do your body good and head into your bathroom. Your morning routine occurs without any event or interruption and 20 minutes later you emerge from your bedroom, ready to take on the challenges for today. You notice Thunder's already pouring himself some cereal, quickly scoffing it down in seconds.
"Morning Thunder" you feel extra jubilant about your first day at your new school. Thunder only turns to you and nods his head with a smile. His cheeks clearly bloated, mouth stuffed with cereal.
"Don’t forget to chew..." You pour yourself some morning sustenance and also quickly devour your meal.
After proceeding to empty out your entire stock of cereal and fruits in one sitting, both of you decided it was best if you headed out for class. The flight from the dorm would probably take a good 5 minutes.
You and Thunder take off into the morning light and slowly make your way towards your classroom. It is then when you notice how many other pegasi are also taking to the skies, either in search of friends or food. You wonder if you would bump into Rainbow Dash this early in the morning.
I don't think she's the early morning kind of pony...
As both of you land by the main building, you are suddenly but quietly called from behind.
"umm... excuse me... but... if you don’t mind me asking, are you Thunder Hoof?" you and thunder quickly turn the to the voice, you are greeted with the shy yellow pony that Thunder returned the bits to. She quickly gasps and hides her face behind her mane having seen Thunder's face.
"Hi... uh, are you ok after yesterday?" She only quietly nods, leaving all three of you in an awkward silence.
You decide to leave Thunder and the pony alone, deciding instead to head to your class."Hey uhh.. Thunder? I guess I'll catch up with you at lunch." Thunder turns and nods as you walk away into the building and out of their sight.
Your first lesson is the Physics of Flying and you recall all students, regardless of whether they prefer the theory of flying or some practical hands on experience must take this lesson. Just outside the class you notice Rainbow Dash loitering by a drinking fountain. She still hasn't noticed you yet and you quickly walk up to her.
Wow, her mane looks like she just got up... or is it always like that?
You decide not to ask, you don't bother probing into ponies personal lives and what they do or don't do in the morning.
"HEY Lighting!" she spots you approaching her and gives a warm smile. You can't help but feel slightly happy being around her again.
Maybe she just has that effect on other ponies?
"Morning Rainbow" both of you head into the class and you try to take a seat by the closest available seat you can find.
"No, not there..." you turn back and notice rainbow shaking her head, she quickly points over to the back row. "were sitting back there". You realise how far back the seats are and feel that Rainbow certainly doesn't have a thing for learning.
"hey.. uh, Rainbow? I don't think you'll learn much from back there" You try and tell her in a way you feel would not offend her. Clearly, it doesn't work.
"Well DUH! only the nerds sit upfront, were athletic scholars, we don't need to know why our wings do what they do." You notice a tone of annoyance in her voice and decide not to bother her any further.
You eventually decide on a compromise. Both of you take seats close to the window, about halfway towards the back and front. You reasoned to Rainbow Dash that she could still sleep or zone out of do whatever she does while you can still absorb some knowledge from the teacher and the board at the front.
"Fine..." she eventually agrees, taking a seat beside you.
I don't know why she's complaining... she's got the better deal.
As time passes by, more students file in into the class and the lesson starts. Halfway throughout the teachers lecture you look over to Dash just to see what she's up to.
You’re surprised to meet a pair of magenta eyes staring right back at you. You realise she’s been staring at you for at least the last 20 minutes. Upon noticing that you spotted her, she quickly turns down to her closed textbook and proceeds to open it to a random page in a bad attempt at hiding her now heavily blushing cheeks.
"Oh i see you're enjoying reading up on 'spontaneous wing reflexes' Rainbow Dash?"
She quickly reads the title of the chapter and notices the multiple diagrams of pegasi with erect wings. She immediately shuts the book, still heavily blushing and proceeds to punch you on the shoulder.
The punch wasn't enough to get a reaction out of you though you feel a small throbbing pain at the afflicted area. You decide to take this as your cue to return your attention to the teacher's ramblings instead.
Lunch Break 12:23
Shortly after the end of your lesson you decide to head over for lunch. On the way to the cafeteria, Rainbow Dash was giving an explanation of why you caught her staring at you during the lesson.
" For the last time! There was something on your face!" She's trying badly to cover up her earlier actions.
"Like what?" She doesn't expect your question and quickly taps herself on the head, trying to think of an excuse
might as well just play along...
"aha! a bug, there was a bug..." her face shows a genuine look of pride as she feels she's made a good excuse.
"Ok then..." you put on your most convincing acceptance face as you enter the Lunch queue. You decide to go for a light fruit salad as Rainbow takes her usual sandwich.
You look over all the lunch tables hoping to find Thunder somewhere. You're surprised to see him sitting at the corner table... with that pony he saved yesterday. you and rainbow decide to head over and take a seat beside him.
"soo... you going to introduce me?" Thunder quickly remembers his manners and gestures towards the yellow pony.
"Uhh.. Lightning this is Fluttershy, Fluttershy Lightning." You give Fluttershy a small smile and she quietly mumbles a greeting.
"And Fluttershy this is Rai-"
"Rainbow Dash. We’ve already met" You quickly turn to Rainbow Dash, she looks back at you with a puzzled face
"What?" You slap your face with a hoof and attempt to recompose yourself.
"You didn't bother to mention this yesterday?" you feel slightly annoyed at this fact but all that feeling washes away when you turn back to see meet her face. She looks like she feels bad, her ears drooping slightly.
"I'm sorry, i didn’t' think it was worth mentioning back then" you feel terrible that you made her upset and quickly try to make it up to her.
Do I really make all ponies feel bad or am I just bad with mares?
"Never mind Rainbow, I guess I didn't bother asking either." she quickly accepts your word and you continue with your lunch. You all talk about what you enjoy about school and you learn that Fluttershy has a thing for animals and nature. Thunder stated that she spent most of her time in the greenhouse or volunteering to take care of the school pets.
After finishing lunch you and Rainbow Dash leave as Thunder and Fluttershy make their own way as well. You suddenly realise the exited look on Rainbow's face.
"What's so exciting?" you look around you and even on yourself for answers but to no avail.
"Next period is training. We're going on the school track, this is my favourite lesson!
You realise this is your chance to see how other pony's fare against you and Rainbow. Both of you quickly change pace but you're quickly stopped by Rainbow Dash?
"Hey? wanna race to the track?" You feel exited for some competition, now that you know what Rainbow's capable of, you think you can bet her.
"OK then" Both of you take position and are ready to take off.
Ok you can do this...
Rainbow Dash immediately sets off leaving you behind once again. Though this time you are left behind for a different reason.
DAMNIT!!! WHERES THE TRACK
Next Chapter: You get yourself into a bit of trouble with Dumb-bell and his crew
Wow, that took long, The chapters keep getting longer and longer. At this rate chapters would probably be posted every other day. I'll try not to delay but I spend ages fixing any errors or spelling.
I would like to thank everypony who has liked commented or given feedback on my story and I would like to say I’ve taken quite a lot of advice into consideration.
Hopefully with all this feedback, I can improve on my writing skills as I go along.
Welcome to Chapter 3 of this story. I thank all the readers are supporting this story and seriously appreciate some of the feedback given.
Sorry for Taking so long to post the last few chapters. I haven't been in the author writing mood even though i was aching to continue the story. Plus, I spend forever to proofread. enjoy the chapter!
If you continue to spot any typos or grammatical error, I greatly appreciate you pointing it out, even if I feel really stupid for missing it.
Chapter 3: Fight of Flight?
You eventually make it to the sports track after choosing to fly upwards and trying to spot it from above. As you land you notice a rather amused Rainbow Dash having a light chuckle.
"Yeah yeah, laugh it up Dash..." You try to punch Rainbow Dash on the shoulder but as you reach out she quickly dodges your terrible attempt, causing you to trip up and fall over.
You regain your balance and composure and hoped nopony saw that last scene. As you brush off your wings Rainbow Dash had now controlled her fit of laughter and was walking towards the sports coach. By now, everypony in your class had arrived and was warming up or chatting amongst themselves.
The coach quickly briefed everyone on what they needed to do. The lesson was simple enough; everypony was free to practice their manoeuvres. Many ponies split up into groups or partners and quickly dispersed to the many different flying tracks and assault courses.
You feel yourself quickly being dragged away to one of the various courses by Rainbow Dash. You read the sign by the start of the course.
Advanced agility track. Proceed with caution
"Time me" She throws you a stopwatch and heads over to the starting position. "Watch and learn rookie..." you decide to sit yourself down further back from the track so you can watch Rainbow Dash work through the course.
She quickly takes off and quickly navigates the easy obstacles such as variously shaped clouds. The sight of her agility and extreme manoeuvrability astounds you as you almost forget to start the timer. Throughout the track she continues to amaze you as she performs moves like 90 degree turns and quick drops from the sky. Every time she folds her wings in to quickly drop back to the ground you can help but hold your breath, somehow thinking she wouldn't recover in time. She then proceeds to perform loop the loops and barrel rolls past many of the obstacles. As she makes it out the other side of the track she flies over to your position.
You're left in awe as you try and comprehend how she even performed some of those manoeuvres. If you learnt anything in your physics lesson, you were pretty sure some of those moves she performed were supposed to be impossible. You sit there quietly with your mouth hanging open in disbelief.
"So... what did you think?" she looks at you and notices you hadn't even stopped the timer.
"Hello... Equestria to Lightning?" She frantically waves her hooves in front of your face, eventually deciding a slap was the most effective way of grabbing your attention.
"OW" you snap out of your daze and quickly nurse your now red cheek. She looks straight at you with an unimpressed look and grabs the timer from your other hoof.
"Are you this abusive to all the colts you meet?" She quickly turns back to you with a smile on her face
"Nah, just you" she takes a seat next to you and stares at you blankly for a moment. You start to feel slightly nervous in this situation, not knowing what to do. You eventually break the silence.
"I said, what did you think about my performance?"
"Well... it was certainly a show, but I'm pretty sure you broke at least three laws of physics in the past 2 minutes."
She quickly dismisses your claims, "What you don't know, can't hurt you" she says it with such confidence, while you try to explain how that saying doesn't actually work.
Instead of continueing to argue, you decide to attempt the course. As you take your position by the start you notice Rainbow Dash eagerly watching by the sidelines. You quickly take off and try o follow the route Rainbow Dash took. You easily navigate past the starting obstacles but struggle slightly with the later ones.
You decide to not try copying Rainbow's moves and navigate past the clouds you own way. Needless to say you made it out the other end in one piece, slightly banged up but in one piece.
"Ehhh... not bad rookie but it could have been 20% cooler..."
Is that supposed to mean anything?!??!
You continue to practice for the next half hour throughout many of the other courses and quickly find that what you lacked in speed and agility you made up in endurance. Anything that Rainbow couldn't blast through in 10 seconds flat, often ended in her losing her stamina and abandoning her flight.
Unfortunately this also had the effect of her in full sweat and crashing down on top of you.
*pant pant* "just give me a second" *pant pant* "let me try that again."
You can't help but feel slightly giddy at the thought of Rainbow in full sweat and on top of you...
Stop it brain! It’s just a workout
That's not the only workout I bet she does...
"Uhh, Rainbow, do you mind getting off me?"
*pant pant* "I said, hold on-" *pant pant* "-a second"
You eventually managed to get Rainbow off of you and decide to call it a wrap. You follow rainbow Dash back to the sports hall only to have Rainbow Dash turn back to you with a puzzled look on her face.
"What are you doing?" you look back at her with a blank face. You don't know what you're actually doing.
"umm... following you?"
"Not into the mares shower room you aren't..."
A quick look at your surroundings confirms that you are actually just in front of the locker rooms. You start to blush at the fact you nearly followed Rainbow Dash into the mares shower room though also somewhat disappointed...
"Oh yeah, um... I guess I’ll see you later then?" you try to keep it cool in front of Rainbow; she doesn't hit you in any way... so that’s a good start.
"Yeah, I'll see you later" she turns back and walk's into the mares locker room. You decide not to hang about in case anypony notices you and gets any ideas.
Colt’s locker room
You decide the best course of action was a long hot shower and quickly proceed to the shower stall. You let the warm water pour over your body as you continue to clean both your wings and body. You let the cascading water rush over your head, washing away both any grime and sweat but also any other worry or thought.
You quickly dry yourself off with the towels provided and head towards the exit. Before you could make it there, you're quickly stopped as you feel a hoof placed on your shoulder. You turn to face the pony and notice the brown Pegasus from the other day.
"Hey, Lightning Strike"
How does he know my name?
"What do you want Dumb-bell?"
"I heard you're pretty close to BLUNDER hoof, is that true?"
" Thunder hoof , and yeah, we were best friends since foalhood"
What Dumb-Bell does next takes you by surprise. He quickly proceeds to slam you into the nearby locker and continue pin you against the steel door.
"Well, you better tell him to back off or somepony's going to get it!"
"I'm not scared of you" What you said was true. Though, even if Thunder was bigger than Dumb-Bell, you were certainly no match to fight him. You decide to not antagonize him further.
"Oh yeah? Well maybe some other pony then?" you quickly try and think of all the other ponies you know. Only one other pony pops up in your mind.
"Don’t you dare do anything to Fluttershy!" You start to feel the anger boil up inside you. There was no way you were letting somepony get hurt on your account.
"Either you break it up with Thunder or Fluttershy gets it" He quickly let's go of you and proceeds to fly out of the locker room. You quickly pick yourself up and try and head off to look for Fluttershy.
Where does she hang out again... the garden? greenhouse?
You decide to go to the closer of the two, the greenhouse. You quickly take off into the afternoon sun in search of Fluttershy.
Landing quickly beside the greenhouse entrance, you waste no time to look for FLuttershy, so much that you decide opening the glass door would take too long and instead choose to smash through the single pane.
Forget what you see in movies, jumping through glass hurts like hell! You stumble back up and brush off the remaining glass shards caught in your wing feathers, you examine yourself for any injuries but luckily you only sustained minor cuts. All the adrenaline rushing through your body has caused you to work up quite a sweat. You wipe the beads of sweat with your hoof and set off in search of your friend.
As you travel further into the glass building you notice the surrounding vegetation thicken. You look up to see how much sunlight you had left and delved deeper into the colourful mixture of flora, quickly deciding now was not the best time to be admiring the view.
"Fluttershy?!?" you take a deep breath and fill your overworked lungs with air. "FLUTTERSHY?!?!"
You hear the rustling of leaves behind you and turn to see the yellow Pegasus hiding amongst the bushes. She's clearly distressed and scared right now but you can't help but wonder if that's how she acts normally.
"Fluttershy! There you are! I’ve been looking for you everywhere! Have you seen Dumb-bell anywhere?" She turns away from you, her face hidden behind her bright pink mane. You move closer to her hoping to get an answer from her.
"Did he hurt you? Are you ok?" You clearly either look that scary or you just plain suck at talking to mare's but as you move closer you realise she’s backing up into a small depression in the ground. You quickly try and move in to stop her from falling but catch one of your hooves in some roots.
The resulting trip has you losing your balance and falling onto Fluttershy. You both tumble of your hooves and into the small sunken part of the ground. You pick yourself up once again and realise you're lying on top of Fluttershy who is also now on her back. You stare at each other in silence for a second.
COME ON!!! IS THIS REALLY THE TIME?!?!
Fluttershy's only response is pitifully quiet half scream, half cry while flailing her hooves about. You try and stop her by grabbing her hooves in one hoof and covering her mouth with the other. You decide now is not the time to be wasting in a greenhouse. You remember you needed to get Fluttershy somewhere safe.
You quickly turn to face in the direction of the sound and only notice a shadowy figure fly off from the bushes. You quickly fly off into the general direction to look for the pony stalker. By the time you turn back to get Fluttershy you notice she had also galloped away in the opposite direction, towards the exit. You power up your wings and quickly head out in search of her once again.
You scour the surrounding areas and buildings in search of Fluttershy but to no avail. You decide by now that she had either found somepony to tell or made it back to her dorm. You reluctantly head back towards your own dorm and explain what happened to Thunder.
Though whatever adrenaline was rushing through your body earlier had now been used to the last drop and you suddenly feel hardly able you walk, your wing muscles ache to the point you decide to drag your wings behind you as you slowly walk back through the dimly lit pathways towards your dorm.
After a gruelling forty minutes you eventually make it back to your dorm in one piece and weakly tapped the door with a hoof. The door quickly opens and you ready yourself to explain what happened to Thunder but as you tried to walk past you realise that Thunder was in fact still blocking the doorway.
"Look, Thunder I need to tell you-"
You look up to see Thunder expecting a welcoming smile but instead you are greeted with the you’re in trouble now... expression on his face. He quickly pushes you back out and pulls out a picture from behind him.
"You mind explaining this!" His voice is low and deep but you can sense anger and fury in it. You look up towards the picture only to be stunned by what you see; your jaw hangs down as you suddenly feel a mixure of anger, sadness, bloodlust and also stupidity...
The paper was in fact a photo. A photo of two ponies. A photo of a sweaty, blood covered you lying on top of Fluttershy pinning her down with your wing in its full erect pride. If you didn't know any better, this looked like a perfect photo of you trying to rape Fluttershy. In fact, the sudden realisation had hit you like a giant boulder to the head. It had all been a set up.
"I can explain!" you try to bring yourself eye to eye with Thunder but you are neither in a position to fly up or bring him down.
"You know, apparently somepony's been stalking Fluttershy for the last 2 days, she'd been hiding in the greenhouse where only two other ponies knew where she would be" you feel a lump forming in your throat.
"I never would have thought somepony like you would have done something like that!" You attempt look back up to defend yourself but he continues.
"Look, if we weren’t friend's since foalhood you'd already be dead by now." you look into his eyes and know what he was saying was true. “But I'm giving you a chance to turn yourself in." You feel your heart sink; the only other pony in life you could depend on was probably now your worst enemy.
You take this opportunity to interrupt. "Look Thunder, you know I wouldn't do this. This was all a set up, Dumb-Bell" You look up and see Thunder turn away from the comment.
"There's no denying it Lightning, I saw the way you looked at Fluttershy back in the cafeteria. And we both know from the Fluttershy's bits incident that somepony like Dumb-Bell wouldn't be able to do something like that!"
"ARE YOU LISTENING TO WHAT YOU’RE SAYING!!!!" You try in desperation to appeal to Thunder, he only drops his head. You notice some tears for in the side of his eyes.
"Are you listening to what you're saying?" It was true, if you were anypony else, Lightning Strike would be as guilty as a pony who just murdered in cold blood.
You look back down and start to think how your life became the wreck it is now. Looking back up you see Thunder had already closed the door. Nopony now would be able to protest your innocence, not even Fluttershy would come out to tell the truth. You imagine yourself incarcerated in a juvenile pony prison, wasting your years away...
You turn around and decide to head off into the night; you prepare to take off only to notice a cyan blue Pegasus in front of you. You think how long Rainbow Dash had been listening in on what Thunder had to day. You feel mixed emotions in your stomach as you think somepony can hear you out but also deep sadness thinking that Rainbow heard what had happened.
Rainbow looked at you with teary eyes, her body in a somewhat defensive stand. You knew she would never believe your story though you still try to go closer to her, hoping she would hear you out. She backs off slowly.
"Is that what happened?"
Next Chapter: Will anypony listen to you? How will you be able to clear your name
It takes forever to write these chapters and proofread them but hopefully they're ok.
I feel somewhat bad making my OC suffer all the pain. Then again, he was kind of stupid...
The next chapter would probably come out tomorrow or the next day but I'll release one at least every three days.
Chapter 4: Saving Grace
"Is that what happened?"
"Rainbow Dash, please I can explain. You have to listen to me." She continues to stare at you. You’re not sure what to do next. You half expect her to either fly off in a bath of tears or knock you out with a solid uppercut. You stand there, waiting covering your head with your hooves and almost down on your knees... Nothing happens.
You look up and see Rainbow Dash standing above you. She pulls you up and wraps her hooves around you. You feel her warm body against your cold one. Her cheeks radiating a soothing heat on your shoulders. This time, you return the hug, as you wrap your hooves around her body you feel somewhat blissfully happy even if our life has gone to ruins.
After a long minute, both of you pull out from the hug. You look at Rainbow Dash's face and notice she's battling conflicting emotions in her head. You feel confused and really bad for making other ponies feel like this...
Why is she doing this for me? Any other pony I knew would be marching down the streets with torches and pitchforks in hooves....
You whisper in a tone just hardly audible. "Why Rainbow Dash?" You feel tears start to well up in your eyes again, you don't suppress them. "Why me out of anypony?"
"Everypony deserves a second chance. A second chance to tell their side of the story." You see her face has a look of forgiveness. "One day, I got myself into some trouble, it wasn't even my fault. But nopony would hear me. I never got a chance to tell them what really happened."
You decide now was not the best time to press on about Dash's life story, even if you were really dying to know. She looks back at you, this time with an expectant look. "I've given you your chance, now you tell me what happened."
You take a deep breath and clear your mind back to earlier today. You take a seat next to Rainbow and clear your throat.
"You remember after practice when I nearly followed you into the locker room?" you notice a small smile spread over her face.
"Well, I went to the Colt's shower room myself to wash up but before I left I bumped into the one and only Dumb-Bell!"
"Well, remember when Thunder stopped him in the cafeteria the other day" she nods "he said, if Thunder wouldn't back off, somepony's going to get it."
"Who is the only other somepony besides me and you, Thunder knows?"
You can hear the gears start to turn in Rainbow's head. By now you've figured out how blunt Rainbow can be but you guess nopony's perfect.
"I knew something was going to happen so I tried to look for Fluttershy in the greenhouse." you continue to explain your story for the next fifteen minutes. The whole time, Rainbow Dash either nodded or answered with one word. You explain how you tripped over and fell on Fluttershy which suddenly also made Rainbow Dash squirm in her seat. You realise what you're about to tell her was going to make her uncomfortable. You decide to continue.
"And then we have me coming back here, getting the door shut on me by Thunder and you showing up..."
By now, Rainbow looks to you with a serious face. You hope she can believe the truth but you prepare for the worst.
"You know nopony else is going to believe you, right?" You feel that sense of hope light up again.
"WAIT? YOU BELIVE ME?" She looks at you and nods.
"But to be honest, things aren't looking in your favour. First, this is Dumb-Bell were talking about. Knowing his brain, it couldn't have been him who set you up. Secondly, nopony's seen or heard from Fluttershy, and I guess only she's the only other pony who can protest you innocence"
Wow... I’m surprised you managed to work all that out Rainbow..."
"So what am I supposed to do?" you feel your heart begin to sink.
"Ok, I have a plan!" You look at Rainbow; she is furiously tapping her head in an attempt to fill her head with ideas. You've never seen her put this much effort into anything but flying and you wonder how smart she can actually be if she thinks.
"Step 1. We find Fluttershy and get her to talk!"
Sheesh... you make it sound like she's the bad guy
"Uhh... how exactly are we going to get her to talk? I hardly think she would just admit what happened to us."
"Simple we just bring her to Thunder Hoof!" you see Rainbows big grin on her face. You feel slightly left out of this plan.
"And how will that help...." Rainbow facehoofs. You can't help but notice how cute she looks when she does that.
"You're really terrible with mares aren't you?"
"WHAT?!?!?" you don't see how this has any relevance to the situation at hand.
"Can't you see? Thunder has a crush on Fluttershy. He can get her to talk" You think back to every time you've seen Thunder Hoof. You don't see any signs of him liking her. Either he doesn't show it or what Rainbow said was true.
"We go find Dumb-Bell and beat the shit out of him!” your ears perk up slightly at the choice of language. Apparently like it when Rainbow talks dirty. You decide to let her continue
"Then we go find who the hell set you up and clear your name!"
Easier said than done...
You prepare yourself for the arduous task ahead and quickly notice the state your body was in. You were still bloodied and sweaty all over. Your wing feathers were all ruffled up and pars of your fur were in tufts. By now any energy left in your body had been sapped away in the last ten minutes. In short, you were a complete wreck.
"Uhhh... Rainbow? I think I might want to clean myself up first..." she hastily grabs one of your hooves and pulls you along. "Where are we going?"
"Well... you need a shower and I’m pretty sure your dorm's out of the question stupid"
"Ready?" you return your focus to Rainbow only to notice she's ready to take off into the sky.
"Uhh... Rainbow, I'm way too tired to fly... can’t you carry me or something" your last comment made Rainbow's cheeks turn her signature deep rosy colour.
"YOU BIG FOAL" she shouts into your ear, you take a moment to regain your hearing. "Pull yourself together! I thought somepony like you could take the pressure. How do you expect to play wingball like this?"
Her tone was now filled with the authority of a drill sergeant. This sudden shock gave you the burst of adrenaline you needed to lift your wings and jump into the night sky. Rainbow quickly moves ahead of you and you follow closely behind her.
You make the least gracious entrance to a scene ever as you essentially collapsed on Rainbow's front door. Your face smashes into the solid wooden frame and your entire body nearly flips over on itself. You quickly get up and follow Rainbow into her bedroom.
A quick examination of her dorm quickly surprises you. The room was half the size of yours and you notice that there was only one door at the other side of the room. You're taken by surprise at the state of the living room. Various bits of food, trash, magazines and other unidentifiable junk litter the room.
"You live like a pig Rainbow. In fact pigs are actually neater." you get a slap to the back of the head for your troubles but this time its light enough to not sting. You decide to change the subject. "Why do you get a whole dorm to yourself?"
"I like my privacy ...and if you haven't noticed, some ponies don't appreciate my lifestyle. The only downside is all my stuff and space is halved."
I see why you spend most your time outdoors then...
"You can use the shower in my room. It's to the left as you go in." You walk in between the mess hoping to avoid any wild creatures that may have made their homes in the clutter. "Oh, and by the way, use the shower for showering . No funny business in there!"
You enter Rainbow's bedroom and immediately notice the various posters and photos that line the small walls. Every inch of concrete was lined with showers of blue and yellow. You walk closer to one of the posters and immediately recognise it as the Wonderbolts. Not only that, compared to her commons area, her bedroom is spotless. Every available shelf or surface is filled with neatly arranged Wonderbolt’s memorabilia.
so... somepony's a wonder bolt’s fan ehh?
You continue to examine the room when suddenly, something catches your eyes... for some reason you take notice to the fact Rainbow Dash has a single bed. You try to shake any thoughts of sleeping in her bed of your mind.
I guess I’m sleeping on the couch tonight.....Damnit!
You finally decide to stop snooping around some mares personal room and head into the bathroom. You quickly head for the shower, forgetting to lock the door behind you.
What's the worst that could happen?
You're content with just shutting the door and hopping into the warm embrace of the rain shower. You let the day's events wash over you as you let your worries swirl down the drain.
10 minutes later
You emerge out of the shower sparkling clean. Your fur has a slight glossy finish to it thanks to the use of feminine toiletries though you also now smell somewhat like Rainbow Dash. Your mane and tail both return back to their original condition as you found out that Rainbow Dash uses the same shampoo you do. You don't know what you find more surprising, how tomboyish Rainbow is or the fact you use shampoo that may or may not appeal to mares.
You leave the steamy confines of the bathroom and notice Rainbow lying on her bed deeply engrossed in a Wonderbolts comic. She looks up at you with an unimpressed look.
"Took you long enough"
How long does she take to shower?!?!
You wave off her comment and sit by her desk, opposite her. "Anyway, it's too late to do anything tonight" you look up to her Wonderbolts clock and read the time...
You hear a faint yawn and turn to see Rainbow Dash starting to doze off on her bed. You promptly get up and nudge her slightly. "Huh?"
"Umm... where am I supposed to sleep?" You watch her as she quickly gets up. You can see her trying to hide her red cheeks. She struggles to form a sentence.
"W-where else! Yo-you’re sleeping outside on... on the c-couch!" There was no way you were spending a night in that unchartered land. Who knew what monsters were lurking within the depths of the junk.
"Two words.... NO, WAY!"
"Fine, you can sleep on the floor here I guess" she chucks a pillow at you. It hits your face and falls off, leaving an imprint of your head. "I don't have any spare blankets so you're going to have to just deal with it"
It was fine. It was summer anyway and you preferred to sleep without any covers on. By now you can feel the fatigue setting in on your body and you promptly collapse onto your pillow. You turn away from Rainbow's bed and face the bathroom door. It, like the rest of the room was covered in Wonderbolt's merchandise.
"Goodnight Rainbow...." you quickly start to doze off as Rainbow Dash turns the light off. You shut your eyes and immediately start drift off into slumber land....
The next morning
You feel the burning sunlight penetrate through your eyelids and you try and turn a way from the light. No matter which side you were facing, the intense light just kept bombarding your face. You eventually open your eyes and remember you were sleeping in Rainbow Dash's room. Somehow you managed to end up sleeping with your head on the ground and your rear hooves on your pillow.
The presence of snoring suggests Rainbow Dash hasn't awoken from her beauty sleep. You get up and peer over the side of her bed. You see a very peaceful Rainbow Dash snoring in her bed, her hooves are hanging over the other side of the bed and you notice her mane was all ruffled from twists and turns in the night. Her face is partially covered by her bright rainbow mane. You decide not to wake her from her blissful sleep and head to get some breakfast.
On the way out you take note of the date and time.
*Saturday, 9:05 AM*
Seeing that it was the weekends you decided that you could have some extra special breakfast. You quickly take a deep breath and head out to the kitchen, carefully avoiding the mountains of clutter in Dash's dorm. By the time you make it to the little kitchen in the corner, you notice how oddly spotless it was. Neither a pot, pan nor spatula was out of place. Only a few empty glasses were scattered beside the sink.
Well, I guess Rainbow doesn't cook?
You flip open the cabinets in search of some sort of cooking ingredients. You quickly gather enough random ingredients to make you meal. The menu for this morning would be pancakes. You heat up your pan and quickly stir up a small batter of pancake mix. Remembering hat basic cooking skills your mum had taught you before you left, you lightly butter the pan before pouring the batter in.
You watch carefully as the bubbles rise to the top of the pancake and pop. You proceed to gently slide your spatula under and quickly flip it over. You decided not to try any fancy flips this morning thinking Rainbow Dash would not appreciate you burning down the only place she can stay.
well... she can bunk in our dorm...
You immediately wonder why your train of thought wandered over that direction but the slight smell of burning and pancakes quickly causes you to return to your hand at task. You scoop up the delicious little wonder and plate it beside you. Pouring more batter into the pan you are able to make a whole stack of pancakes in no time. You cut a lump of butter of the top and generously drench in syrup. You place the huge edible stack on the table and head off to cook another batch.
Now to make Rainbow's batch
By the time you finish plating up your second batch of pancakes, you had nearly perfected the shape and timing for cooking them. You turn to the dining table and suddenly notice a cyan Pegasus had been quietly devouring your whole stack of pancakes.
"NOO!! My babies!!!" You quickly run over to the table with a look of shock and dismay on your face.
"Mmmm... these taste awesome!" You manage to hear Rainbow cry you between mouthfuls. By now she had entirely polished off your first batch of pancakes.
"Those were mining..."
"Hey! They were getting soggy, plus that batch looks way better" you look back at the plate in your hooves and realise it was indeed more neat.
"Can I have some? PWEEEASEE?"
"You’ve already had yours!" you say while trying to protect your little delights. You look back and to see rainbow giving the saddest and adorable puppy eyes you had ever seen. You feel your heart melt and tear away knowing you're depriving the poor pony of pancakes.
You eventually give in and split your stack in half. You give the top end to Rainbow who quickly proceeds to stuff her face with them...
DAWWW, somepony likes pancakes!
Both of you promptly finish of your breakfast and quickly go over the plan. Somehow, thinking over the plan you realise how un-thought out this plan really was...
"Soo?? Where will we find her?" you start to feel the impatience growing on you. You try to think hard, certainly, you should probably check her dorm first.
"Right! let’s go" both you and Rainbow head out in search of Flutter shy’s dorm. You fly alongside Rainbow Dash and she softly says something to you. You blush slightly at her compliment.
"Umm... Thanks for the pancakes by the way. But next time make it about 20% cooler..."
Next Chapter: Will you expose who tried to set you up? And does somepony reveal their love?
Sorry once again for the delay in chapters. I'm trying to post them consistently but like I previously said. I haven’t been in the author writing mood or the proofreading mood.
Do you like the use of pictures? Should I get rid of them? Please comment!
Link for all the pictures used. Credit to all the artists.
Here's the 5th chapter for my story. Sorry, for the delay. I had actually finished the chapter and saved along the way. But somehow, pressing shift and scrolling down, causes you to go back a page.
After returning, somehow, it reverted back to 2000 words only. All authors hate re-writing a story. It's odd because you want to recreate your plot word for word but never comes out the same. The only upside is you get to make certain changes to the way it's written.
Enjoy the chapter. The next one will be a little less dramatic... but more intimate.
Chapter 5: Redemption
You and Rainbow Dash swoop across the sky, covering the distance quite quickly. You easily keep up with Rainbow Dash's pace and trail closely behind as she gracefully and effortlessly glide through the air. Both of you spot the administrative building below you, to your two o'clock.
This time, you manage to land with 4 hooves firmly planted on the ground. You have no time to savour your victory as you quickly head f into the building. You enter the main reception area and quickly find the department you're looking for.
You notice a very old mare sitting behind the counter and attempt to make your inquiry. You're suddenly knocked aside and find yourself on your back. You look back up and noticed Rainbow Dash at the counter. She's pounding both her hooves on the counter like she's interrogating a suspect.
Oh sweet Celestia what is she doing....
You hope Rainbow Dash knows what she's doing but you decide not to intervene. You figured she probably knows what she's doing. You're only course of action is praying Rainbow doesn't give the old mare a heart attack.
"Ma'am, I'm going to have to ask you to co-operate!" you watch closely behind as Rainbow finds out what Fluttershy lives. You notice the old mare look up at both of you and give Rainbow her full attention.
"Oh, hello dear. What can I do for you two today?" She speaks with such a quiet humble tone. You only wonder why she's working this position instead of enjoying retirement in some faraway paradise.
Rainbow quickly interjects. "Look lady! This is a matter of life and death here! I need to know where the hay Fluttershy lives."
You can see the genuine concern in Rainbow's face and can only wonder why a pony would go so far and do something like this for another pony. You're lost from the conversation while you stand there, staring at Rainbow Dash. Wondering, just why she was doing what she was.
You snap out of your gaze when you notice Rainbow Dash turn and eyeing you stare at her. She blushes when she spots you staring at her.
Why does she keep blushing...?
"Damnit Lightning! Can't you just stop harassing mares and focus on the task at hand for once"
"Hey..." You decide not to continue as from the corner of your eye, you spot the old Mare coming back with a folder. You watch as she opens it up and pulls a sheet from it.
She passes the sheet of paper over the counter to Rainbow Dash. The mare is still sporting that calm almost carefree attitude. She clearly doesn't understand the nature of the situation. Then again, you or Rainbow never explained anything.
"You kids these days are so dramatic..." you turn and follow Rainbow Dash out of the room and out of the building. She faces you. You only notice the look on her face. You stand there in the awkward silence only wondering what to do or say.
Rainbow is the first to break the awkward silence.
"What?" you either really spaced out for a second or you were really missing something.
"Aren’t you going to comment on like how awesome that was. I mean, did you see how quickly I got that info we needed"
Oh yeah. I forgot this is Rainbow Dash...
You try your best sarcastic tone. "Oh yeah!! That was awesome. You're so cool Rainbow Dash. You like... did that in ten seconds flat. Umm... I’ve never seen anypony cooler than you!"
You quickly get a hoof to the face for your trouble.
You rub your cheeks, hoping to reduce the pink hoof imprint on your face while grabbing the sheet of paper off from Rainbow Dash.
"What I meant to say is... Thanks’ Rainbow Dash, I couldn't have done it without you."
You brace your ears as you hear her loud squee of joy. While she was basking in her glory, you work out where Fluttershy could be hiding. You recognize where her dorm is and quickly take off into the late morning sun. You're quickly tailed by Rainbow Dash in hot pursuit.
"I don't think any pony’s home..." You say in a quiet voice over the incessant banging of the door by Rainbow Dash.
She doesn't stop her attack on the wooden door. "You think? This is Fluttershy were talking about" After a good two minutes at the door, Rainbow gives up and heads round the side.
"Where are you going!?!?" you hope Rainbow hasn't given up this easily at an obstacle.
"I'll be back" you hardly catch a glimpse of her face as she leaves.
Was that a wink?
You sit there patiently for another few minutes only hearing the occasional sound coming from inside. The door quickly opens and you look up, hoping to see Fluttershy at the door only to be greeted by a very sweaty looking Rainbow Dash.
"Told you I’d be back" You quickly wonder how she got inside or more importantly, why she was all that sweaty. Your nose catches her scent mixed with some light deodorant. You somehow enjoy Rainbow's athletic aroma. You quickly feel your wings tightening and try your best to keep them down.
Ignoring the fact you two just broke into somepony's dorm and were now scouring every inch of the room for somepony, you and Rainbow proceed to look for Fluttershy. Rainbow decided to search the living room while you covered her bedroom. Both of you spend ages looking everywhere for her when you catch a light sobbing in the corner of your ear.
You turn towards the source of the noise and notice a small broom closet in the corner. You slowly turn the handle half expecting a demonic beast hiding within, ready to attack you but the logical side of your brain knows that's not possible.
You slowly pull open the door and peek inside. You spot a chain and tug it lightly. The light turns on and in front of you, you see a very sad, crying Fluttershy on the ground. You turn and call out to Rainbow Dash.
"Uhhh... I think I found her"
"Really?" you're quickly joined by Rainbow Dash whose face lit up when she spots Fluttershy. After dragging her out of the closet you and Rainbow Dash then proceed to try and calm Fluttershy down. You decide Rainbow's interrogation tactics were not the best here and tried appealing to her in a caring manner.
Eventually, you get something out of her.
"I can't talk... they'll hurt me..." you barely hear her quiet voice even close up to her.
"Come on Fluttershy... I thought you liked helping other ponies. I need you to help me by telling me who wants to hurt you. You don't get a response.
figures... blackmail and threats, the one most dangerous weapon in high school...
You and Rainbow decide now, the only other option was to bring her to Thunder and hope she'll talk to him. Rainbow grabs Fluttershy and loads her onto your back...
"What the hay?" you feel slightly burdened by the pony on your back...
"She’s not much of a flier...." you don't bother to argue about how heavy she is and slowly set off back to Thunder.
After dropping Fluttershy off at your door, you quickly proceed to bash on the door and quickly hoof it into the nearby bush. Peering out of the bush, you spot Thunder open the door and jump at the sight of Fluttershy. He quickly brings her in and shuts the door. You can only hope that Fluttershy will talk to Thun-
You tumble out of the bush and land on your back. You get up and shake of the leaves still clinging to your fur. Looking back to Rainbow Dash, you feel a sense of relief that she's still around.
"So... uhh, what was step two of your brilliant plan?" She quickly perks up at your compliment and gives the biggest smile you've ever seen from her.
"Honestly... I never thought we would get this far!"
Wow... I'm glad I put my utmost confidence in you Dash...
"Ummm... now we go find the pony who did this and uhh... we turn them I’m!"
"I thought it was beat them up?"
You and Rainbow Dash quickly think of all the different ponies you know who even had the IQ to pull this off. You notice Rainbow shuffle slightly uncomfortably and decide to ask her what's wrong.
"Uhh... everything alright skittles?"
She blushes heavily at your comment. You watch as her cheeks go a hot red pink this time.
"Don't call me that" You quickly find out you have a new nickname for Rainbow.
"Anyways... you ok?"
"Yeah... it's just. I think I know some... Griffon... who may or may not know anypony who could have done it..." you feel she's not telling you everything but you don't press for answers. You knew some griffons but you never really did make friends with them. You've played against a few Griffons in Wingball games and you find they tackle better than they fly.
"Let’s go to her then. Lead the way"
Rainbow takes off towards her friend and you follow once again, close by. This time you notice she's dramatically slower in her flight.
This isn't going to end well...
You both head over to what seems to be the Griffon's section of housing. The immediate atmosphere immediately sends chills down your back. Following Rainbow Dash's lead, you land at some insignificant dorm number you can't remember and Rainbow quickly proceeds to turn back to you.
"Can you like... kind of stay back here?"
"It’s just that Gilda's just not that kind of griffon that likes everypony she meets." She rubs the side of her hoof uneasily. "...And we also have some history." She struggles to find answers and switches to an all out sour, defensive mood. "It's just... it's difficult to explain. OK?"
"OK, Ok I get it..." You feel that instinct in your gut that Rainbow isn't letting telling you everything. You decide to ask her after she talks to this 'Gilda'.
You sit quietly round the corner from the entrance on a solitary park bench. You wait for what seems ages and can only hear some muffled rock music coming from inside the dorm. You look up towards the sun and see that it's slowly approaching midday.
Remembering what you learnt about reading time based on the sun, you reckoned it was about 11:20AM. The late morning sun was sweltering down on you and a quick glance around you quickly confirms most ponies had either hidden inside by now or were cooling off by the pool or lake.
You find the intense heat unbearable, or at least that's what you told yourself to move into the shade and comfort of the sheltered dorm. You decide to pick yourself up and quickly stood in the shaded area, just outside Gilda's dorm.
You weren't much for eavesdropping but since this did involve you, you decided it was ok for you to listen in on what was going inside. You push the door open just a crack and press your keen ear to the door. By now the music from inside had been stopped and you could only hear quiet and barely audible conversation.
Bold for Gilda's speech, italics for your thoughts, and normal text for Rainbow’s speech
"Gilda? Have you been... working on anything recently?"
"You know I’ve taken a break from all that stuff Rainbow"
Working on what!?!?
"Yeah... but you did tell me old habits die hard..."
well... now that you mention it, you know that idiot... what was his name again... Dumb-bell! Yeah... gave me a hundred bits just to get some dirt on somepony
Yeah! Who the hell is this???
"I don't know! Just some new transfer students or something. The smaller one's cute but you know I don't do stable relationships..."
She's not talking about me? Is she?
"So? What did you do?"
You know me... I just followed him around. Waited for him to go into the greenhouse. He was looking for that Flutterbitch... I didn't know he rolled that way. Everypony only see's him hang out with his coltfriend. I never thought he wouldn't be into mares like you Rainbow?"
WHOA, WHOA, WHOA... ponies think I’m gay?
"Shut up... you don't know him. He's like... really cool"
What??! Don’t tell me you like him. Have you seen what he did to that Flutterbitch anyway!
So she's the bitch who set me up???
"Uhh... I have to go, I’ll see you later"
"Catch you around Rainbow Dash"
End of eavesdropping, bold is no longer Gilda
You quickly back away from the door and make a mad dash for your bench. You power your wings to full and dart back around the corner, almost smashing into the bench itself. Moments later you see Rainbow Dash making it round the corner. You sit up and rub the beads of sweat from your face.
"Hey Lightning, I just...... You ok? You look like you just flew a marathon..."
You try your best to keep cool but the burning sun was drenching you in sweat.
"What? No... Besides I wouldn't even sweat this much in a marathon anyway." You give your best excuse. She buys it.
"Pff... as if. Anyway, I talked to Gilda"
Oh really?? I was just expecting you two to have a leisurely pillow fight accompanied with movies and popcorn
"And I didn't find anything"
"Rainbow we both know you're bullshitting me! Look, this doesn't need to concern you. You have nothing to lose from this! But me? I could get expelled if the teachers saw this!"
"You were listening in on me!" her surprise now turns to anger. She moves closer to you and you can feel the heat coming off from her cheeks. You smell the mild hint of wild berries in her breath.
You move back, trying to make sense of this situation. Suddenly you feel the urge to snap at Rainbow.
"Look, this doesn't need to concern you! But this could be the end of my school career. I could get expelled for this"
You quickly turn and fly off towards Gilda's dorm. You hear Rainbow call out your name just behind you but you don’t turn back to look.
You come crashing through the wooden door. Fragmenting it into splinters. This time you ignore the pain and quickly get up. You brush off some small shards of wood caught in your wing feathers.
Hey... I’m getting good at this door smashing stuff.
You return your attention to the griffon in the room. "You better destroy those pictures" Finally looking up at your assailant, you realise that she's considerably larger than you and almost certain to beat you in a fight.
"Aww... did somepony come for something?" She brandishes a small stash of incriminating photos in her claws. Almost teasing you with it.
"You better get rid of them... or else!"
"Or what?" She was right. You smashed right in there without a plan and now it looked like you were done for.
"Look who we have here?" You turn around and spot Dumb-Bell accompanied by 3 other ponies, blocking the door. You know you were dead if you stayed here and quickly formulated a plan.
five on one, aww come on....
"I'm going to rip those tiny wings off your sorry body." Finally deciding to take action, you make a right hoof at Dumb-Bell hitting him square in the jaw, knocking him unconscious before he hid the floor. You took this opportunity to do what you did best.
You make a mad dash out the door and leap into the sky. You power your wings to full in an attempt to escape your attackers. Turning back, you notice that they've also taken off in hot pursuit of you. You turn on your wingball brain and try to come up with a plan. Your only option was to get away from them or pick them off one by one.
You fly manically in the air, trying to avoid a pony that has caught up to you by now. You make a sudden swerve and quickly slow down. You kick with your rear legs, knocking him in the forehead. He quickly drops out of the sky and hit's the ground with a thud.
One down, four more to go.
You fly low, desperately trying to lose your attackers in between the buildings. Two other ponies persist and trail you closely, mimicking your every movement. One follows close behind you whiles the other just above you. You attempt a few sudden swerves and even a sharp turn but the other ponies are quickly gaining ground on you.
You spot a narrow alleyway and head towards it. At the last second you tilt sideways and zip into the narrow opening. The other pony behind you had no time to react. Causing him to smash into the brick wall. You feel a small triumph as you get out of the alley. Though it's short lived; the other pony was smart enough to fly over the building and was now heading right at you.
You spot him tucks his wings in and goes straight into a dive. By now there was nothing else you could do but close your eyes and prepare for the inevitable.
"My life can't end now!!! I have so much I haven't done, graduate from flight school, earn a living, get laid..."
He hits you with full impact and you both go crashing towards the ground. You hit the ground at an astounding speed and your impact was only slightly cushioned by the other pony, who was now beneath you. You try and open your eyes and mouth but dusk quickly causes you to shut both.
You attempt to get up but a searing pain in both your back and legs cause you to collapse. You lie there, in a heap of dirt and pony at the mercy of your attackers. You see the two ponies you knocked out earlier, now pinning you down on the dirt. One of them has lost a few teeth while the other might need some surgery.
"Well well, you gave us quite a chase. Now, anything to say before I crush those wings of yours?"
You only prepare yourself for the immense pain. You feel a claw bending back your wings, slowly torturing them and destroying the tissue. You think about how your entire life is going to end if you don't die right here, right now. You would be wingless, lose your scholarship, drop out from school and lose your friends.
"GET THE FUCK OF OFF HIM!!" Rainbow Dash?
You try and look up but you can't see past your assailants. Your attackers themselves have stopped in their tracks and now turn to face your savoir.
"IF YOU LAY ANOTHER HOOF OR CLAW ON HIM, YOU CAN KISS YOUR NECKS GOODBYE" Thunder!
The two ponies pinning you promptly proceed to flying off at full speed, into the distance while Gilda and Dumb-Bell settle for charging at Thunder.
Needless to say, both of them were quickly pinned and taken down by Thunder. By now you could see various teachers and security ponies leading Gilda and Dumb-Bell away.
Behind Thunder you spot a hiding Fluttershy peeking over Thunder, quickly glancing at you. She gives you a small and shy but genuine smile and you return it. You try again to get up but the pain in your legs cause you to fall back into the pile of dust. You spot Thunder walk up to you and break into tears and only mutters two words before turning away.
"I'm sorry..." Thunder's always been such an emotional pony; you decide to let Fluttershy comfort him before talking to him later.
You turn your head around and spot Rainbow rushing towards you. She has a relieved though sad look on her face.
"Heya Skittles, you missed the party!" you try and keep the mood cheery but you notice she’s clearly upset.
"I'm sorry I wasn't there for you"
"No, Rainbow. You did the right thing." You finally manage to stumble back onto four legs. "...Besides, you wouldn’t have been able to out fly them anyway..."
Rainbow Dash playfully nudges your shoulder. She's still feeling a bit down but something is still bugging you in your head.
There is no way anypony would do so much for somepony they've met a week ago.
"Yeah lightning?" You finally muster up the courage to ask
"Why did you do this for me?"
"What do you mean!?!? I already told you!"
"Yeah but why for me..."
She struggles to find excuses. Eventually she looks nervously down. Her voice changes to a quiet whisper. You move closer to hear her
"Because.... I.... I, I like you."
So? We’re friends. I like you too...
You're taken by surprise but still not satisfied by the answer. You nervously scratch your head. "I like you to Rainbow, That's why friends were."
"NO... You don't understand?" She moves closer, your faces nearly touching. Once again you can smell the wild berries in her breath and the scent of her mane.
"Lightning... I love you..."
Next Chapter: The recent events have left you out of action and in recovery. But will this give you some time to get to know somepony?
*Whew* Major dilemma over. Now I can continue with the OC's life. Once again, I appreciate and enjoy feedback given. Comments are always a joy to read.
Still waiting for season 3 to come out but the next school year is starting soon in September. And now I also have to focus on GCSE's (No coursework though ^_^).
Either way, ponies can help me get the A* I need.
Another brilliant group of artists who are amazing, computer literate with drawing or editing. I wish I could do that...:
Here you go! Somepony has some one on one quality time with Rainbow Dash. Who’s the dominant one in this relationship... ehh, hard to tell...?
Once again, please comment and point out any mistakes (that are bound to be there)
Chapter 6: Hospital Flowers
"NO... You don't understand?" She moves closer, your faces nearly touching. Once again you can smell the wild berries in her breath and the scent of her mane.
"Lightning... I love you..."
You feel your heart start to pound and the blood rushing to your cheeks. You look up and see Rainbow also sporting the same pose.
"Uhh... I....Ummm... Rainbow I-"
Before you can continue, she presses her lips against yours. Your faces now closer than ever before. You return the kiss and both of you are locked in a heat of passion. She pushes her tongue in and you allow her to. You taste the hint of wild berries in mouth and also push further. Both of you are stood there. Enjoying the bliss of the moment, you feel relieved and pleased you share mutual feelings. You start to feel the blood rush to your wings. It was bound to happen.
Screw that. I'm busy enjoying my first kiss here!
You quickly feel the pain burn across your back and wings. Still traumatized from their injuries. You pull back and end your moment of joy. You look back to Rainbow and she seems to think, she’s hurt you. You try and stop the pain but your erect wings continue to send shocks of unbearable pain down your spine.
You start to feel your vision go black. You start to lose your balance and quickly topple over. You were going into unconsciousness. Trying to form any words is impossible. Out of the corner of your eyes you can see paramedics alike rushing to your aid.
This sucks, knocked out by a winboner....
Soon, you lose all consciousness. Unable to hear Rainbow's cries of sadness.
You stir in your sleep. Tossing and tumbling. You finally wake up and open your eyes. Your surroundings are all white or very bright.
Am I dead?
Nope. You look to your sides and notice you're in a bed. After rubbing your eyes you start to focus on where you are. More glances around confirm your suspicion. You're in a hospital bed, surrounded by cold, lifeless medical contraptions and machines. Half pulled to the side is a pale green privacy screen though you believe there is nopony on the other side.
The sunlight creeps in from the gaps in the closed fabric shutters. You lay in the cold bed; the only sound is as constant beep and the occasional whir of various machines. You try to sit up but you still feel the stinging pain in your wings. You turn back and realise, your entire wing structure had been bandaged up.
You return to a lying position, frustrated at being trapped in this room alone. You turn to your side, facing your bedside table. On it lay various pills, a glass of water and a note. You decide not to disturb them, waiting for somepony else to prompt you to eat them later.
You hear three quiet knocks on the door. Remembering your manners, you call for them to come in. As the door opens, you are greeted by a wide array of ponies. First enters what seems to be the doctor, behind him a familiar face.
You feel joy light up in your heart, knowing somepony's visiting you in hospital. Your heartbeat begins to speed up. The machine starts to beep faster as well, mimicking your pulse. The doctor takes notice and looks back to Rainbow Dash, then to you.
"Now now, we don't want to get too excited. You mustn't strain yourself."
You knew it was the doctor's job to take care of you. But you feel frustrated and annoyed being at the mercy of the healthcare system.
"Come on doctor. Can't some surgeon just zap some magic, heal me and send me on my way?"
"Unicorn magic can only do so much Mr Lightning Strike". He walks over to your bed, pulling out a clipboard. "Now, it's up to your body to heal the internal wounds. Although this may take some time, the magic had helped speed up your recovery."
Meanwhile, a nurse had been busy lifting you up and re-dressing your bandages. You do your best to co-operate but nopony said you had to do it with a smile.
The doctor continued.
"Now, I'm keeping you in the schools infirmary for the next two weeks. After you're discharged, I don't want you using those wings for another three weeks. And under no circumstance should you partake in any strenuous, physical activity."
You bury your head in your pillow.
"I mean it! No flying, No Wingball, no heavy running. Nothing!"
"Fine. Thanks doc"
"Finally, take the medication on your bedside table. The nurse will drop by with them daily. Just once in the morning and once in the evening."
With that both the doctor, accompanied by his lovely nurse, leaves the room. Behind them, they shut the door. You feel a sense of relief wash through your body but still lay there sulking.
"You big foal! Cheer up!"
You quickly look up. You forgot Rainbow was waiting in the corner, patiently sitting on the chair. Hear wings are spread out. She has her special smile on her face. You can't help but smile as well
She hops over to the side of your bed. You don't bother moving. You can't actually go anywhere either. She leans over you. She has that seductive smile on her face. You feel yourself sweat up. Either from your own nervousness or the heat you could feel from her being so close.
She quietly whispers
"Did you enjoy your kiss?"
You remember back to before you fell unconscious. It wasn't the best way to end a first kiss...
"Well... I guess it did take my breath away" Your bad joke still manages to get a small chuckle from Rainbow Dash.
"Hmm... I guess I'll just make this one better-"
She leans in closer and presses her lips against yours. You do the same, enjoying both her company and love. She quickly leaps over the side railing and is now on top of you. Both of you are still locked in a kiss, exchanging feelings of love mutually. You feel her tongue slither its way into your mouth, you enjoy the sentiment, and to the same. You can hear quiet moans escape her mouth. By now, her entire body was nearly on top of you. Her body heat radiating to you. Somehow, the room just got very warm...
This is way better than some 'get well soon' flowers...
Suddenly, you hear the door clicking and spot the handle turning. You break away from your kiss and try to warn your lover.
"Damnit Rainbow! Get down before somepony sees you!"
Instead of doing the logical thing and flying of the bed. Rainbow had literally taken your advice and ducked under your covers. Her head wall lying over your chest and her mane protruded from the sides of the blankets. She tried her best to stay motionless but you doubt anypony would miss a cyan Pegasus with a bright multicoloured mane lying on top of you, in bed.
The door opens with a slam. You see Thunder gallop in, quickly followed by a very small Fluttershy in comparison. He quickly goes past you and heads to the window. He quickly rips open the shutters, nearly damaging them. You hope he doesn't turn to face you. He's barely 2 metres from you and a very hot mare in your bed.
You let Thunder continue his joyous ramblings. Trying to give Rainbow the signal to get off. You nudge her slightly. No response. You feel some moisture on your chest...
IS THAT SALIVA ON MY CHEST!??!
You quickly ignore the thought of Rainbow seductively licking your chest and hope she just fell asleep and started drooling.
Yeah right.... totally believable
"Oh my...." You look and turn to face Fluttershy. She's clearly spotted the rainbow mane poking out from the side of the bed. This causes Thunder to turn to you. He also spots the lump on your chest. He takes a quick moment to process the scene.
As you quickly try and say something, Rainbow Dash quickly throws the covers off and jumps into the air.
You only bury your head into your pillow not wanting to hear anything anypony has to say about this scene. You look up again and spot a very embarrassed Fluttershy inching closer to the door. You also turn and face a wide eyed Thunder, frozen on the spot.
"YOU DIRTY LITTLE STALLION!!"
You block yourself with your forehooves and close your eyes. "WAIT!!! I can explain"
"I thought the doctor said not to 'partake in any strenuous physical activity' for the next 5 weeks. And here you are trying to screw Rainbow Dash in a hospital bed" He looks at you both accusingly but also playfully.
Your only reaction is to face hoof and hide yourself under the covers. By now Rainbow has finally grasped the nature of the situation and has quickly hopped off the bed. She doesn't look even slightly embarrassed being caught with you in bed.
You spend the next 20 minutes with Thunder, alone. Both Rainbow and Fluttershy waiting patiently outside. You spend the male bonding time well, both apologising to Thunder and being apologised to by Thunder. You enjoy some quality time with Thunder, earning some away time from Rainbow.
"So... are you two like...."
"I guess we are now"
"Damn...so...is she good in bed then?"
You blush heavily, trying not to remember the earlier incident. You make some wild flails towards Thunder but you're barred by your own bed. You eventually give up and continue to sulk as he leaves the room.
"I'll see you round then..."
As he leaves, you swear you catch him wink just as Rainbow Returned to the room. Out from the corner of your eye, you can spot Thunder walking off with Fluttershy.
I wonder if they're together....
Your thoughts are quickly cut off as Rainbow returns to your bedside. She leans over and pecks you on the cheek. Even after she pulls away, you still feel her warmth on your face. You both sit there in silence, enjoying the moment.
You decide to take your pills and quickly pop them into your mouth, gulping them down with the water provided. You almost instantly feel the numbing effects on your back.
Rainbow Dash says her goodbyes and ends with another long kiss on the mouth. This time she breaks away, leaving you hungry for more. You feel the lonely sadness creeps in again as you are left alone in the room. You decide to fell back asleep, hoping to let the time pass by.
2 weeks later Day of your discharge
You let the two weeks pass by without relative event. Every day you would be visited by the nurse for your bandage changing. The doctor would come in and give a status report. Later, Thunder would always arrive at noon on the dot. He always spent his lunch breaks visiting you and helping you catch up with work.
Though your favourite time of the day was after 3PM. When school ended. This was because you were always visited by Rainbow Dash shortly after. She would come in and talk about all the tricks she learned and pulled off. You would just lie there and listen. Appreciating the company she gave you. After, you both would enjoy a snuggle or two before she always left you hanging with that kiss...
Today was different.
Today was different because you were finally being discharged. This morning, the doctor entered your room. You knew what he was going to say. But you let him continue with his job...
"...So I guess you would like to be discharged then?"
You nod your head excitedly.
"... Ok, but I still don't want you flying on that wing for the next 3 weeks. Every day, you still need to change your bandages and take your pills."
The nurse had already shown you how to change your bandages, though you would need another pony to help you.
"Just sign on this sheet saying that I release you in a healthy state and you are satisfied with the level of healthcare you were provided"
You take the pen and quickly skim read the waiver. You sign on the dotted line and are quickly escorted to the front reception.
As you make it to the front reception you turn to face the nurse.
"So... Can I go now?"
She smiles and urges you forward. "Of Course, but it looks like somepony came to pick you up"
You turn to face where the nurse pointed and spot the lovely Rainbow dash smiling and waving to you by the doors to the exit. You return the wave and quickly thank the nurse. Before you leave you hear her say something as you turned away.
"Next time, you don't need to get hurt to play hero."
You decide to ignore the comment and quickly make it to Rainbow Dash by the exit. She greets you with a big warm hug, wrapping her hooves around you and embracing you tightly, giving special care not to squeeze your wings. You do the same and proceed to wrap your hooves around her to. Leaning you head in, you tilt your head slightly and she kisses you on the cheek. You push further and kiss her passionately on the mouth. She initially resists but gives in after the first few seconds.
Eventually you end your display of affection, much to the relief of the other patients in the room. You and Rainbow make your way out of the School Infirmary and out back to the rest of the campus.
"So... do you want to go anywhere first?"
You hear a low grumbling and look down to your stomach. You hadn't eaten this morning and you were sick of all the hospital food. You gently rub your belly and quicken your pace.
"Yeah, I just got out of hospital, I want some decent food."
"Fine, let's go to the cafe"
You make your way to one of the many contracted cafes that operate on school grounds. Because students couldn't leave campus without a pass, many of the real world amenities were brought in for students to enjoy. You place your order for a hearty sandwich and you turn to see Rainbow's made it to the ice cream counter.
"Uhh... Rainbow? Have you decided what you want to eat? You’re starting to drool on the nice pony's counter."
You look closer at the glass pane and notice she’s nearly pressing her tongue onto the glass. You turn to look at the flavour she's so hungrily staring at.
Rainbow Ice cream...
Who would have guessed....?
"I want thaaaaat one!"
You turn to the cashier and order a triple scoop sundae for Rainbow Dash.
Ice cream before lunchtime... What a pampered pony....
You both take a seat while they prepare your order. Sitting opposite Rainbow Dash, you can't help but stare at her every now and then. You wonder how long she’s ever felt this way about you. On the other hand, Rainbow's mind is busy, eagerly awaiting her frozen treat.
A waiter quickly arrives with a huge bowl of ice cream. The huge pile of frozen ice cream stacked quite high. Topped with layers of whipped cream and hot fudge you can only wonder how Rainbow Dash stays in shape with regular indulgences like this...
You quickly pick up the other spoon provided and try and take a small bite-
"If you wanted ice cream, WHY DIDN'T YOU ORDER ONE!!!"
Sheesh, I only wanted to try some....
You back off and decide to leave rainbow to her thing. Though, when she wasn't looking you managed to help yourself to a spoonful, or two.
The taste of the rainbow dessert was incredible. You had never tasted such an explosion of flavour in a small bite of anything ever before.
You quickly look back at Rainbow. She scowls at you when she sees your face and quickly punches you on the jaw.
"OW... are you trying to get me back into hospital!"
"You took my ice cream!"
A quick rub of your face reveals that you had spots of Rainbow ice cream, left near your mouth. You quickly try and wipe it off but you're quickly stopped by Rainbow Dash. She pulls you by your shoulders and brings you closer to her. You decide not to resist. Not wanting another trip to the Infirmary anytime soon. She sticks out her tongue and licks off the smudge on your face. You feel her warm, wet tongue slide across your face and you can't help but feel that sense of arousal.
Your wings try to spring up but are firmly bandaged together. You feel a slight pain in them but push it to the back of your mind. You look back at Rainbow, who is now looking at you seductively.
"Mmm.... tastes even better..."
Why do you do this to me....?
"My wings are hurting like hell right now..."#
"That'll teach you to take my ice cream next time"
You realise what she said was in fact legitimate and bury your head in your hooves. Eventually your food arrives and you quickly polish off your plate. You make your way out of the Cafe and back towards your dorm.
Without flying, travelling distances has become quite a bother for you. Walking half a mile already has you breaking a sweat. The only consolation is having Rainbow Dash walk beside you.
You eventually make it to you dorm in just under 10 minutes-
Sweet Celestia is the campus really that big or am I just as fast as a snail?
You unlock the front door and make your way in. You spot a sticky note stuck on the fridge door. You quickly rip it off and read it.
Out with Fluttershy. Will be back by evening
You scrunch the note into a ball and toss it into the bin. By now Rainbow Dash has taken a seat on the long lounge chair. You decide to join her on it, she doesn't resist.....
A good while later
Satisfied with your little cuddle, you lie on the couch opposite Rainbow now. She looks at you and quickly mentions something to you.
You know umm... Tomorrow is uhh... My birthday you know-"
Damnit I didn't even get her anything. Granted, I was hospitalised for the last 2 weeks.
"-And I was wondering what you're getting me"
"I can't tell you that Skittles. It would ruin the surprise"
She decides not to press on and you enjoy the rest of the day lounging about in your dorm.
Damnit.... What does she like...?
You desperately try to think about what would really make Rainbow's birthday special. Furiously thinking, you quickly remember her room-
A brilliant idea pops up to mind and you decide to wait until tomorrow to put your plan into action. You think about it real carefully.
How hard is it to get an evening pass to leave school grounds....?
Next Chapter: How hard is it to see the Wonderbolts? And you learn just how expensive it is to take a mare you like out and show her a good time.
All credit for pictures goes to the artists....
Nothing much to say...
Enjoy the chapter
Chapter 7: Wonderbolts
You spend the rest of the late afternoon lazily hanging out with Rainbow Dash. Every now and then, she keeps pestering you about what you're going to get for her birthday. Besides the fact you actually haven't got anything for her, you still don't reveal your plan. Hopefully you can pull through and deliver with your idea.
Rainbow Dash looks up to the clock in the room.
"Oh, hey, looks like it's getting late. I got to go soon..."
You feel a small lump of sadness grow inside you. Looking up at the clock, you spot it to be nearly six in the evening. You decide to get over your feelings and pony up.
"Ok, ummm... I’ll see you tomorrow then?"
"Duh... anyway, you better get me something good for my birthday. Or you're going to get it..."
You let it dwell on your mind for a second before realising the true nature of what you're thinking.
Wait! Do I actually get turned on when Rainbow Dash threatens me???
You decide not to think about how she would dominate you in a relationship. You walk over to the door and lead her out of your dorm. She walks out of your dorm but quickly turns around to face you. She stands up and walks closer to you. You quickly ready your hooves in defence but she quickly slams you against the wall, pinning both your hooves beside your head. You feel yourself helpless against the concrete. She pushes her head and leans in. You feel her tongue once again trying to wriggle its way into your mouth, brushing against your teeth. You can’t move your hooves, still locked by your sides. You can't help but feel a sense of arousal at being at her mercy.
She quickly unpins you. You almost fall at the sudden lack of support. She doesn't say anything but smiles at you seductively. You're mouth is still hanging open from the kiss. You still taste her wild berries in your mouth. She turns away and walks off into the evening sun. You watch her as she paces slowly away. Then you realise. Now you're just having a stare at a mare's ass...
But you have to admit.... Dat ass
You wait for a few minutes before heading out. You plan to go to the admin office and obtain a pass to leave school grounds. In fact, you want two passes . You quickly head out to the administration offices to look for the pony in charge.
I swear I visit this place to often...
You Make your way over to the student pass office and spot an open counter. You head over to it and spot a relatively young Pegasus manning the counter. It looks as if he only just graduated from flight school himself. You strike a conversation with him.
"Hello. Is there anything I can do for you?"
"Ummm... yeah, there is. Can I get two passes to leave school grounds?"
"I'll see what can be done."
"Come on... I really need it!!! There's this really hot mare that I like, and I want to take her on a date!"
"AND!?!? What else do I need?"
He sighs. "I feel for you.... ok, look. Just fill out this form here and pay the 100 bits for the administration fee."
"If it weren't for this huge counter in front of you, you would almost be hugging him by now. But that didn't stop you from leaning over and trying.
"Ehh... hugs not required..." He quickly passes you over the form and you quickly fill it out. You read trough the questions, answering them thoroughly.
What is the purpose of your leave?
Recreational... I guess???
You also read the terms and conditions in small print at the bottom. Looking over it, you learn you need to be back on campus by midnight. You mustn’t get into any trouble while out. Rules on campus may still apply while away-
And so forth. Etc...
You sign at the bottom of your page with your unique signature and drop your bits to the Pegasus.
He quickly hands you two small passes. He chuckles when he spots the huge grin growing on your face. You quickly grab the passes and head out. Before you leave, you thank the nice pony and you hear him shout something to you as you leave the office.
"YOU BETTER NOT SCREW UP!!!"
Oh yeah, Thanks for having faith in me...
By the time you make it back to your dorm, you're sweating all over. You still haven't acclimatised to having to run and walk everywhere. By now, you start to appreciate how easy flying makes everything.
This time, you open the door to the dorm and spot Thunder, lazing about on the couch. You realise just how much you need him for your plan. Plus, you would only trust your best friend with this sort of task anyway.
"Soo... day out with Fluttershy go ok?"
"Yeah... we spent time tending animals, enjoying the peace of the greenhouse. You know, stuff..."
You decide not to prod into each Thunder's romance life and in exchange, he does the same. Either way, you need him to fly up to Cloudsdale to get what you need.
"Hey Thunder, I really need you to help me out."
"Sure. What do you need?"
You pull him closer and whisper to his ear. You tell him exactly where to go and what to do. Before he leaves, you hand him a huge bag of bits. He stashes the money into his saddlebag and takes off into the night sky.
You wait for what seems to be hours on end but a quick check of the clock tells you it's only been thirty minutes. You hear a loud knock on the door and rush to open it. You unlock the door and spot a sweaty Thunder Hoof. He makes his way in and slumps back onto his couch.
"Next time, you don't need to nearly smash the door in."
"Next time, you should think of cheaper ways to take a mare out."
"Here are your precious tickets."
In his hooves, her sported two golden tickets. Upon closer inspection you read out the tickets to be for tomorrows show. You quickly take the tickets and stash it on your bedside table.
"Those things cost nearly three hundred bits. EACH!!"
That kind of money is half my monthly allowance
"Well, it's a good thing I was in hospital for 2 weeks then. Right?"
Thunder doesn't reply. He just picks himself up and grabs a blow of leftovers from the fridge. You, delighted with yourself, see it fit to celebrate. You head off into the shower and enjoy the warm comfort of the water.
After drying yourself off, you slip into your bed and stare up at the wall. Everything’s gone well so far but this was the easy part. You start to get doubts over tomorrow and quickly think about what could go wrong.
What if she doesn't like it? Or maybe I might screw up? What if the pony at the office was right?
You eventually decide to worry yourself to sleep. Quickly drifting off into a pleasant dream involving none other than your Rainbow Dash...
"WAKE UP SLEEPY HEAD!!!"
You quickly bolt out of bed, your wings primed and erect from your hormonal teenage fantasies. Not to mention some other parts...
You turn to the sound of your voice and spot the crazy cyan blue Pegasus in your room.
Did she purposefully come in here to see me like this???
"Rainbow! Consider giving me bit privacy please?"
She ponders the thought for a moment, at the same time still inching ever closer to you. You quickly jump under your covers in a futile attempt to conceal your arousal.
"OK... I've considered it. Nope!"
She stands just by the foot of your bed and rips your covers off. She then gives you a big amorous hug which you do not react to. You just enjoy the moment and get it over with. You also take this time to quickly stash her birthday loot into your drawer. She releases you and you pick yourself up and head towards you shower.
"You're not coming in here"
You quickly bolt the door locked and head into your shower. You only turn the cold tap on. A time like this just calls for a cold shower.
You quickly dry yourself off and exit your bathroom. Outside, you see Rainbow Dash waiting patiently on your bed.
Well... Lying down provocatively if more like it
You give her a quick peck on the cheek and wish her a happy 16th birthday.
Authors note: Shut up! I'm using Human years for ease of understanding and if anypony asks, I’m using the British timeline for a school year. That is from September to late June.
"So? How do you want to spend your special day?"
"Hmm... I don’t know... we've already seen how amazing of a flier I am and there’s nothing else to do in this boring place."
"Well how about we spend the day in Cloudsdale instead?" You quickly flash your two passes to leave school.
"WOW!!! Lighting you're amazing!" She quickly picks you up and wraps you in a tight hug almost crushing your ribs. One which you're pretty sure only Thunder could do. You return the gesture with kiss to the mouth this time. You catch her unaware and she’s taken by surprise. You push further and she quickly goes along with it.
After she releases you from her tight 'Thunder' hug. She quickly slaps you across the face.
"Ow" You gently nurse your red cheek with one hoof.
"That was for getting a kiss without my permission"
Totally worth it
"Anyway, we can go like everywhere and do whatever we want!"
"Actually Skittles... We can go anywhere in Cloudsdale and we have to be back before midnight"
"Shut up! I’m sixteen and I think I can do anything in the world!"
You start to head out of the room, quickly stashing your Wonderbolts ticket under your wings on the way out. You're quickly followed by Rainbow Dash, still basking in her glory. Outside in the living room you notice Thunder isn't around. Another sticky note on the fridge. You pick it up and read it...
Have a good say out with Rainbow. I'm out with Fluttershy.
PS: The door is locked.
"Rainbow? How did you let yourself in?"
"Climbed through your window"
A quick peek back into your room did in fact reveal you window was wide open. The curtains flapping in the breeze. You make a mental note to lock your windows next time and head out of your dorm.
Looking at Rainbow Dash you see she's clearly pumped and ready to leave school. Her wings are ready and she’s about to take off.
She turns back to you and quickly remembers after looking back at your wings. She sighs and picks you up. You try not to imagine the embarrassment of having to be carried around everywhere in Cloudsdale. With Rainbow Carrying you, you quickly make it to the campus exit.
She’s enjoying this....
You're quickly stopped by the guards who eye both of you. You pull out your passes and pass it to the guards. They quickly look over them before handing them back to you. They open the gates and let you two pass. On your way out you swear you heard the pair of them snigger behind your back.
This is soooo embarrassing...
You're quickly shot up into the sky and Rainbow takes to full speed. She flies at an almost ninety degree angle quickly breaking the sound barrier. You feel yourself slipping from her grip. You try and call out to her.
You finally fall off. You try your best to slow your fall, but without your wings you look just like an earth pony flailing their hooves about in the air. Suddenly you're quickly scooped back up into Rainbow Dash's grip. You look up at your saviour and notice how hard she's laughing.
"YOU DID THAT ON PURPOSE!!"
"You should have seen your face!" You let her have her fun. After all it is her birthday, though you do make it as hard as possible for her to fly. Eventually she drops you onto a small cloud and starts pushing it instead. Although it was pretty comfortable, it was basically was a Pegasus version of a wheelchair.
You make it to a small cafe and quickly hop off your cloud. You and Rainbow Dash head inside. Ready to have some breakfast. You order some hay bacon strips and eggs and Rainbow orders a fresh fruit salad. Your food arrives promptly and you both proceed to devour your food. Neither of you speak, to hungry to start a conversation and because your mouths were stuffed with food.
After both of you finish off your meal. You both make suggestion on where to go next. You think of an idea.
"How about the Weather Factory?"
"Huh? Come on... It can't be that exiting..."
"You got a better idea?"
You and Rainbow head off the Weather Factory. Inside, you both tour around the production line. Besides actually learning something, you and Rainbow decide to have some fun there. You manage to blow dozens of small delicate snowflakes into Rainbow Dash's face. You hope nopony saw the amount of damage you caused by destroying the small, delicate snow structures.
Eventually you get your comeuppance. While walking past the vats of rainbows, you're quickly shoved in by Rainbow Dash. You lose your footing and fall into the vat with a huge splash. Inside the vat of the multicoloured liquid, you can feel your eyes burning from the spicy liquid. You quickly surface yourself and climb up from the tub.
You shake off most of the liquid before a weather pony comes up to you. Alerted by the splash. He quickly questions you.
"What happened here?"
"I hush, fell in"
Instead of getting a long lecture or being thrown out like you expected, the Weather pony just turns and mutters to himself.
"That’s the forth one this week. We really need to put some guard rails on that thing"
You turn back to Rainbow Dash still in a fit of laughter after what she just did to you. You smile at her.
She sticks out her tongue and licks you right across the face. You feel a cold shudder go down your spine as she does so. She licks the remaining liquid on your cheek, after doing so; they go a deep bright red from the gesture. She pulls back and licks her lips. Satisfied with her work.
Unfortunately, your incident with the rainbow juice had also caused your bandages to stain a bright rainbow hue. You can't change them now and instead, now have to wander around Cloudsdale with your multicolour bandages. Rainbow Dash helps to lighten the mood.
"Hey! At least they match my mane and tail"
You and Rainbow Quickly leave the weather factory and notice it to be late afternoon. You see Rainbow start to feel slightly down. Obviously sad that her day out is nearly over.
You decide now was the best time to pull out your other half of your present. You suddenly remember you tucked them under your bandaged wings. You hope they haven’t been destroyed by the liquid rainbows. You quickly pull the golden tickets out. They have drops of rainbow on them but the tickets themselves are waterproof and still as shiny as ever.
You nudge Rainbow on the shoulder; she turns slowly, head lowered in sadness
Dawwwww... Don't look so sad
"Hey Rainbow, I got you something else..."
She tilts her head up and her eyes quickly go wide. Her ears also perk up at the sight of the tickets. You stand there smiling and holding the two tickets to today’s Wonderbolts show. Before you know it, you're off your feet and on your back. Lying on the soft cloud floor. Rainbow Dash just tackled you to the ground and was hugging you where you lay. You only lie there and return the hug but quickly get up when you notice other ponies watching you from a distance.
"OH MY GOODNESS!! I CANTBELIEVEYOUDIDTHIFORMEILOVEYOUSOMUCHLIGHTNING-"
You've never heard somepony talk so fast before and quickly stop her before she suffocates herself. You shush her with a hoof to the mouth and she continues to hug you. After a good five minutes of uninterrupted hugs and thank you's, you and Rainbow decide to head over to the stadium where the Wonderbolts were performing.
You make it to the front entrance; there are only a few ponies right now, as the show didn't start for another hour or so. You and Rainbow go in anyway; you had nothing better to do anyway. The tickets Thunder got for you weren't first class but they weren't standard either.
You had some good spots relatively close to the front. This was mostly where the die hard Wonderbolts fans were seated and you hope you're eardrums wouldn't burst from the amount of screaming fans around you. You and Rainbow take your seats and wait for the show to start.
Slowly, over time, the stadium starts to fill with various spectators and fans. Eventually, the whole place was packed and you hear the announcers start to speak. By now you can see Rainbow almost jumping in her seat, hoping to get a glimpse of the Wonderbolts.
You yourself weren't a die hard fan of the Wonderbolts but you did enjoy their performances as much as the next pony. You always find yourself amazed at the stunts and tricks they manage to pull off. You hear the announcers say the show about to start. You wait patiently in your seat while most of the other ponies were jumping and screaming at the top of their lungs, Rainbow Dash included.
The show went on for two hours. At one point you were pretty sure your eardrums had burst. You could distinctively hear Rainbow Dash's fangirlish squees of joy in the crowd. After the show ended you quickly read the back of your tickets and find that you were entitled to an autographed picture of the Wonderbolts. All the fans in this section were entitled to one.
You quickly grab Rainbow Dash's ticket and make your way to the Autograph stand. Upon presenting the two tickets you're given two newly signed pictures and proudly head back over to Rainbow Dash. You pass her one picture and her ticket. You receive a tender kiss for your effort and decide to make your way back home. Looking at the clock on one of the walls, you realise it to be nearly eleven PM.
You make it back to the school gates where the security ponies sign you in as returning back to the campus by eleven thirty. You stop just past the gate and turn to Rainbow. She looks at you kindly and pulls you close to her.
"Hey... Uhh Lightning... I... I really enjoyed today and... And I hope we could do this again some time"
You try and say something but she interrupts you. She presses her lips against your and pushes her tongue, slithering past your teeth. You return the kiss and pull her into a warm embrace. You both enjoy the moment, stood there, under the dim light of the lamppost. Eventually, she breaks the kiss and looks into your eyes.
You both head off towards your dorms; you don't delay, noticing rainclouds start to form. You hear thunder in the distance and feel some raindrops start to fall on your back. You quicken your pace and make it to your dorm just as the rain starts to pour down. You hear the thunder very clearly now and can see lightning bolts in the sky.
You quickly head in and notice the lights turned off. You presume you're roommate had already called it a day and this was confirmed by the gentle snore as you place your ears on his bedroom doors.
Thank Celestia for the soundproofing
You head over into your bedroom and shut the door. You prepare yourself for bed and quickly stash your autographed picture and ticket onto your study desk. You turn of the light and lie flat on your bed. You begin to drift into sleep when you're interrupted by loud bangs at your window.
*Thud Thud Thud*
At first you ignore them, thinking it just to be thunder. Then they continue, almost getting louder.
You hop off your bed and flick the lights back on. You quickly pull back your curtains to investigate the noise but you're startled at your discovery.
You spot a very sad looking, drenched Rainbow Dash hanging by your window ledge. You quickly unlock the window and pull her in. In doing so, you realise just how wet she is.
"Asshole... You locked your window!"
You notice her start to shiver as she stands in the middle of you room. You quickly head over to your bathroom and grab a towel. You head over to Rainbow and begin to rub her down. Slowly drying her off. This also gives you the opportunity to question her.
"Umm... Rainbow. What were you doing outside my window anyway?"
She blushes at your question and turns away slightly. She mumbles a faint response.
"I was... uhh lost on the way to my dorm..."
Yeah.... Sure you were...
You manage to dry her off, her coat now very puffed up and ruffled from your vigorous rubbing. She sits on your bed waiting for you to dry yourself off as well. You realise there was no way you were letting her go back out into the storm to get back to her dorm.
You think to prepare some accommodation for her but something she says stops your train of thought. You turn to face her.
"Hey Lightning... Can I umm... Sleep with you tonight?"
Next Chapter: Somepony gets caught with Rainbow in bed...
Dun Dun Dun...... Cliffhanger
don't worry, the next chapter is coming soon.
Intimate scene/s with Rainbow? YES
Sex scene/s? NO
Enjoy...... I guess?
Chapter 7: It's Consensual!
"Hey Lightning... Can I umm... Sleep with you tonight?"
You feel your cheeks turn a shade pink. You rub the back of you neck and turn to face Rainbow Dash.
"Rainbow... Don't you think were a little young for that?"
Your comment finally made her realise what you thought her intentions were. She stomps her hoof in annoyance but you can see her face now turning the same shade of pink as yours.
"You dirty colt! You know that's not what I meant!"
She then starts to turn away, now tapping her hoof on the floor. Her voice drops a tone softer.
"Besides... I'm of legal age. I'm sixteen remember?"
"Yeah but i'm still fifteen... so that would make it rape."
"It's not rape if you like it!"
"No. It's not rape if it's consensual. Then that would make it statutory rape..."
"Just get your head out of the gutter Lightning. I'm sleeping in your bed."
So? Was that a question or a statement?
Rainbow Dash jumps onto your bed eagerly and quickly wraps herself in your covers. You hop back onto your bed and simply turn away from Rainbow. You feel your tired eyelids hungry for some sleep but Rainbow decides that she wants to strike up a conversation.
"Lightning... You awake?"
"OK... I want to ask you something."
You feel a sharp sting in the back of your leg. You feel her hoof make a quick jab at your knee.
"When did you start... you know, feeling this way for me Lightning?"
The pain in your leg suddenly disappears. You try and truly think back to when you two first met. Somehow, you did feel attracted to Rainbow since she crashed into you.
"Well... I guess since I first saw you. Which means if you never crashed into me, we’d never had met."
"Oh yeah... hehe, about that..."
You sit up and flick the lights back on. You turn to Rainbow Dash whose now made herself quite comfy on your bed. She's trying to hide her embarrassed face under your blanket but you pull it off.
"Well. You don't think the school would make me find a student without showing me his profile would you. You did look quite sexy in your photo and uhh.... I think I had a crush on you..."
"And you didn't have the pony in you to fly up to me and say hi did you?"
You let the gears in your head click into place. You had finally figured it out.
"Wait!!! That meant that you crashed into me on purpose!"
"Well duh! You don't think the best and fastest flier in all of Equestria would have crashed into you did you?"
Celestia. I hate her now....
"I love you too Rainbow Dash. Goodnight"
You flick the lights off and turn to face away from Rainbow again. You feel her body heat radiating to you. The warmth felt comforting and inviting but you abstain from moving closer.
"I’m cold Lightning."
"Then take the blanket"
She promptly rips your half of the covers and piles it onto her side. You now feel the bone chilling atmosphere of the cold. You've lost both your covers and the cosy body heat from Rainbow Dash. You start to feel your teeth chatter. And you can hear them!
"Are you cold now lightning?"
"How did you guess?"
Enough of these games...
"Rainbow, I know what your doing. DO you want to cuddle up?"
You shuffle your way back to Rainbow's side of the bed and remove half the covers off. She quickly wraps her hooves about you and pulls you in closer. Your entire bodies are practically pressing against each other but you enjoy the warm glow she's giving off. She presses her lips closer to you and eventually you do the same. Your lips touch hers and you immediately feel your head fill with warmth. This time you press further and push your tongue into her mouth. She tries to defend herself with her tongue but eventually loses.
By now you've also wrapped your hooves around her waist and are stroking her soothingly. In response, she was now wrapping one wing around you. You were now smothered in a cocoon of covers, wings and hooves. You help Rainbow by gently massaging her wings and wing muscle. You take extra care on her tips. You've never done this before but her quiet moans suggest she’s enjoying it.
Eventually her quiet moans turn to muffled pants. Her wings are worn out from the 'exercise' and now rest on you limply. You begin to hear her cute snoring and confirm that she's now asleep. You pull yourself closer to her and shut your eyes. You quickly drift off back into your many fantasies involving Rainbow Dash and your bed.
The early morning light from outside quickly fills your room. You rub your delicate eyes and look towards the window. The curtains are still drawn open becaus-
Wait!?! Last night? Rainbow Dash?
You quickly turn around and spot a pile of covers stacked on the bed. You spot both her rainbow mane and tail sticking out the sides and when you stick your head closer, you can hear the faint snoring from underneath. You gently remove layers of blanket off her but she suddenly grabs you and pulls you closer.
She’s pulled you in and pressing her face close to yours. You look at her and notice she's still actually asleep. She gently sticks her tongue out and starts to caress it on your face. You start to feel giddy in this situation but she quickly stops. What she does next may or may not haunt you for the rest of your life.
She starts to whisper into your ear. You feel trapped, unable to escape her tight grip. She whispers thing that she wants’ to do to you. Looking at her you're surprised how much of a dirty mind she has. Although the thought of bondage kind of frightens you. You can’t help to feel strongly aroused by her... intimate and thorough descriptions of her deepest desires.
You decide to hear no more and quickly shake her. You hope you would never have to explain to her what you just heard but keep that thought to the back of your mind.
"Hey, Rainbow Dash?"
*Wheh* "You're awake!"
"Yeah... You woke me from the best dream ever..."
"Umm... I don't think I missed a bit of it."
"What do you mean?"
You lean in closer and bring you mouth to her ear. You quickly whisper what you heard her say to you in her sleep. She blushes heavily having had her deepest fantasies told back to her. Her wings are now fully erect. Her only other response in punching you in the jaw... again.
You fall over onto your back and Rainbow Dash quickly pins you by your hooves. You try to get up but she pushes you back down again. She's now on top of you, her defined, athletic body build pressing against your sensitive parts. Her face moves close to yours. She whispers something to you.
"You can't tell ANYPONY about what you may OR may not have heard from me. And I swear, if somepony finds out, I will personally come into your room, do exactly what I want to you, torture you then kill you."
The feeling of danger and anger both scare you and turn you on. You can't help but love Rainbow Dash when she's angry like that. You also try not to imagine being tied down on your own bed, being... tortured by Rainbow Dash.
Suddenly the door slams open and you spot Thunder running into the room. He quickly stops in her tracks when he sees the scene in from of him unfold. You look to your side and spot him, his eyes are wide open and his wings are slowly rising.
Thunder you are so immature...
At this point Rainbow quickly turns around and shouts the last thing you would want anypony to hear after seeing you like this.
You look back to Thunder and realise he's fainted at the shock of what he think had just happened. You quickly push a now very embarrassed Rainbow Dash off of you and quickly get out of bed.
"Damnit Rainbow! He's never going to live this down"
"UHHH... Just help me get him onto the couch."
It takes a great deal of force from both your and Rainbow Dash to carry the unconscious Thunder out of your room and onto the couch. You quickly fan him, hoping he regains consciousness but Rainbow settles for a more direct approach. She runs over to the kitchen and grabbed a glass of water. The tips the entire contents straight onto Thunders face.
He quickly shoots straight back up and jumps off the couch. He stares at both of you, trying to regain his senses. It takes you a good ten minutes to explain how Rainbow got in your bed and what he just saw.
Ten minutes later....
"So... I didn't just see some crazy bondage-rape-sex-scene?"
You sight and face hoof.
"No. The was no rape. No bondage and NO sex!"
"Right....I think I’ll just leave you two alone today then!"
With that, he quickly left your dorm and flew away into the distance. Presumably to meet up with Fluttershy. You turn back and look to Rainbow Dash. She has a very smug look on her face. You can't decipher what she's trying to get across.
"I know deep inside. You probably wished it was bondage-rape-sex"
Oh? Is that a word now?
You don't respond. You know that's not true but a small part of your brain may just disagree...
"I knew it!"
You ignore her comments and quickly make your way to your bathroom. You start to unwrap your bandages, still tinted rainbow from yesterday's incident. You realise you have to thoroughly wash your wings and fur to ensure the rainbow wouldn't cause any infection.
You try and partly unfold your wings. They have been slightly toned from being wrapped in rainbow soaked bandages and now they start to itch. You try and reach to scratch them but fail miserably. Suddenly you feel a par of hooves start to rub you wings. You quickly turn around and see Rainbow Dash, happily massaging your wings.
"Rainbow. I don't need you to do this"
"Yes you do. You look so pathetic there, fiddling with your wings. Now get in the shower."
"Do I have a choice?"
She shakes her head and promptly shoves you into the tight shower cubicle. She flicks on the tap, already preset to the perfect temperature. She climbs in and joins you in the crowded space. The warm water flows gently on both of your fur coats. Somehow, the way Rainbow seems to be doing this suggests to you this isn't her first time. You proceed to washing your mane and fur while Rainbow Dash picks up your special shampoo for your wings. She hastily proceeds to squirt what feels like half the bottle onto your wing feathers and starts to rub vigorously.
You feel her hooves running through the feathers in your wings. The delicate manoeuvres both cleaning and soothing them. You let out a faint moan of pleasure as she goes over the edges of your wings. She notices you enjoy that and focuses more in that area. She moves lower, to the base of the wings and gently massages the muscles controlling your reflexes. Your wings feel like you're in complete ecstasy and almost ready to burst. You feel the rush of pleasure spread across your wings. You let out a loud moan as your wings finally collapse back to a limp state.
Rainbow Dash now satisfied with your wingasm. Proceeds to washing off the remaining foam on your body. You start to pant with breathlessness and lean against the wall for support. You think the best way to return the favour would be to do the same to Rainbow Dash. You push her against the shower screen and begin to gently rub your hooves on the base of her wings...
A long, long time later
You both emerge out of the shower, soaking wet but satisfied. You never knew you could go into a shower and come out feeling dirtier than when you got in. But somehow, the last half hour had managed to do just that.
You pull off another towel from your rack and start to towel down Rainbow Dash. You take special care to cover her... sensitive bits before moving on to her head. Even after a harsh rub down, her mane still looks as normal as ever and you start to wonder if she actually ever grooms it.
You make quick work drying yourself off and toss the now wet towel into the sink. You and Rainbow make it out of the bathroom and start to laze about.
"Thanks for that. My wings feel brand new."
"Thanks to you too, Lightning. I never knew you had it in you too..."
You both lazily lie on the bed, waiting for time to pass. Eventually, the growls from both your stomachs tell you it's a good time to eat. You look up at your clock and realise the time.
You and Rainbow Dash both decide to head out for some late brunch. Although your passes were still valid for today, you both agree that staying on campus is a better idea.
You manage to make it to you favourite cafe on campus. In fact, it was the only one on campus. You settle for some scone with jam and cream while Rainbow orders some waffles. At the entrance you are quick to spot Thunder walk in with Fluttershy. You wave to them and they quickly notice you. They head over to your table and pull over two chairs. While you give them time to order you leave yourself to daydream.
Hey, this is the first time I’ve seen Fluttershy since I’ve been in hospital.
You look over at Fluttershy and smile. She smiles back and talks in her distinct quiet voice.
"Oh, I'm so happy you're recovering from your injuries Lightning"
"Yeah, Rainbow *ahem* helped me with my wings"
You receive a sharp jab in the abdomen for your snarky comment. You decide to keep your mouth shut for the rest of the meal, both for your own good and because your food was now arriving. All four of you make quick work of your meal though Thunder seems to almost be devouring his entire plate.
You feel a slight tug on your side and you notice Fluttershy beckoning you to follow her. You excuse yourself from the meal and proceed to follow her to the back of the cafe.
"Did you want something Fluttershy?"
"Um yeah... The thing is. If you don't mind. I never really did get to thank you for what you did for me."
"Uhh... It was nothing really."
"No, it was something. Because of me, you got hurt and I feel awful fro letting that happen to you."
"I... I. don't know what to say..."
"I just want to make it up to you, if you don't mind"
You stand there frozen; you really don't know what to do next. You two can both sense the awkwardness in the situation and you notice her also shuffle uneasily.
She moves in close to you. You think she wants to whisper something to you. You also lean in close to her. She quickly presses her lips against yours and kisses you. You stay there, shocked. You look at her; she has her eyes closed, locked in the moment. You don't know what to do next. You don't return the kiss but you don't pull back either.
What the hell am I doing?!?!?
"WHAT THE FUCK!??!"
You quickly break from the kiss and turn to face two ponies. You spot Thunder, who now has his jaw hanging loose and beside him is Rainbow Dash. You see tears well up in her eyes but deep inside them you can see a deep hatred.
"Hold it! This isn't what it looks like!"
Next Chapter: Have you really screwed up your relationship? How do you clear things up with you bro and your marefriend?
Short chapter this time. For no reason whatsoever. Did the room just get warmer?
Hmm... I also didn't add pictures. Maybe I couldn't find any good ones or maybe it just wasn't an appropriate moment...
Shorter chapter this time. I'm bringing this story to a close...
Just chapter 10 plus an epilogue and then I'm finished.
Chapter 7: Making Amends!
"Hold it! This isn't what it looks like!"
Nopony makes a move. Thunder, still frozen in the spot. You turn to Fluttershy. She realises what she had just done and is now in shock. You look over back to Rainbow Dash. She's nowhere to be seen. You catch a glimpse of a Rainbow tail exiting the cafe. You can hear Fluttershy break down into tears. She also proceeds to hoof it out of the building.
You're left alone, at the back of the cafe. You look around but somehow the cafe staff are also nowhere to be seen. Suddenly, you feel yourself being rammed into the cold, concrete wall. You feel a sharp sting in your wings as they are crushed between you and the wall. You look up and spot Thunder, hoisting you up with one hoof. You can see the tears running down his face but you feel the anger in his heart.
You grab his other hoof, intent on choking you. You use whatever energy you have stored inside of you to keep his huge hoof away from your fragile neck. You do so in vain. HE quickly overpowers you and you can feel your airway slowly constricting.
You see the darkness creep into the corner of your eyes. You feel the strength in your body fade away, as your brain and muscles are gasping for air. Your lungs are working overtime to provide the much needed oxygen for your body but you can feel yourself slipping into unconsciousness...
Just before you think you're blacking out. You feel Thunder release his grip. You drop to the linoleum flooring. Easing your neck and gasping for breath. You take a minute to stumble back onto all fours but you look up and spot Thunder, still gazing down at you. You manage a weak smile.
"WHAT THE FUCK MAN!!"
"Jeez, calm down Thunder..."
"CALM DOWN. WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?"
"Look, it’s not my fault-"
"Oh yeah. How many mares do you need to be satisfied?"
"It's not like that!"
"You and Rainbow Dash really had something. Then you start hitting on Fluttershy. Damnit! You know I had a crush on her!"
You can't think of what to say next. You try and form an explanation in your head but your brain is still trying to recollect the last 3 minutes.
"I was going to ask her out on a date today! And you fucked it up!"
"You bucked it up for everypony. I think you've shattered Rainbow's heart now"
You think back to your Rainbow Dash. You imagine her sorrow. Just witnessing her coltfriend kiss another pony.
"We didn't mean to kiss!"
"It's just that Fluttershy just wanted to thank me for what I did. And she also wanted to apologize for me getting hurt-"
"YOU KNOW its TRUE THUNDER!"
He collapses onto his flank. You get up and try to pull him up. He doesn't budge.
"Look Thunder. I know how you feel about Fluttershy and I wasn't trying anything on her. She's a very caring mare and she felt bad about getting somepony hurt. That kiss was a 'get better soon' kiss. It wasn't a spontaneous act of passion!"
Thunder looks back at you. By the rate of his breathing, you know he's calmed down quite a bit. You're not surprised. If you saw your best bro making out with your marefriend you'd be pretty furious too.
He whacks you on the shoulder. You're pretty sure that's going to leave a bruise. But considering you don't have any broken bones. You feel like the luckiest pony to get in a fight with Thunder.
"I’m not happy, but I forgive you."
He gets up and tosses a pouch of bits on the table.
Wow, somepony who just saw his best friend supposedly making out with his crush AND he still picks up the tab...
"I'm going to... sort things out with Fluttershy" he holds the door for you as you exit the deserted cafe. "I think you might want to set things straight with Rainbow Dash..."
"Good luck to you Lightning. And if she manages to pin you down, you can kiss your stallionhood goodbye..."
You can't help but gulp down that lump forming in your throat. You furiously try and remember where Rainbow Dash's dorm is. Trying to piece the steps from the evening she brought you in. After a short while, you can recall the path you took and started to kick it into high gear.
You ran as fast as your little pony legs could take you, galloping along the school pathways. In the distance you can see the building you're looking for and head straight for this.
Damn... all this running around is surely going to build my muscle.
You make it to her front door. Your heart still pounding from your exercise. You had been so concerned with finding her you haven't even thought of what you’re going to do now. You choose to improvise; starting by bashing your hooves on the front door.
"Look. I know you're in there! I just wanted to say I’m really sorry for what happened but what you saw was totally out of context.
Come on Rainbow....
You back off from the front door and gallop over to the back. You spot her bedroom window on the first floor; slightly ajar.
I guess I’m climbing.
You prepare yourself for a high jump. Bracing your legs and positioning yourself under the window. You release the stored energy in you hind legs. Propelling yourself just up to the window. You quickly grab onto the tiny ledge, gripping for dear life. Should you fall now, now wings would be there to slow you down.
You hoist yourself up with one hoof and quickly pull yourself into the room. Your hind leg catches the ledge, causing you to lose balance and tumble over. You make it into the room but your now upside down and on your head.
"Great entrance Romeo..."
You quickly get back onto all four and turn to face the bed. You spot a very heartbroken pony lying on the bed.
"Rainbow Dash. What you say in the cafe was not what it looked like."
She quickly gets off the bed. She shoves you against the wall using a moderate amount off force. You don't resist her efforts but continue explaining.
"What the hell was it then?!?"
You try your best to make eye contact with her. You look into her eyes and notice her magenta hue has turned a darker red. Add a pair of fangs and she could be a vampire...
"Fluttershy just wanted to thank me for what I did for her and she really wanted to apologise for getting me hurt-"
"SO YOU KISSED HER?"
"SHE KISSED ME!"
"But did you kiss her back?"
"I... I was in shock ok? I didn't know what to do!"
"Please Rainbow... You know I don't love anypony but you. You're my only one Skittles..."
You receive an upper cut to the jaw for your trouble. You comfort your bruised mouth and look up at Rainbow Dash. She's calmed down by now but you don't want to try anything on her.
"THAT... was for letting this happen"
This time she kicks you right between your stallion bits. You crumple back onto the floor, writhing in agony. You still hope someday you would still be able to have foals. You let out a small tear but quickly wipe it away.
"AND THAT... was for making me embarrass myself in public!"
OWW.... love hurts....
You try your best to get up. You presumed you were still going to be stopped by Rainbow but you notice she'd now hopped back onto her bed.
I hate love... Wait? Do I?
"Look Rainbow. I'm really sorry for making you feel horrible but can I make it up to you in any way?"
She whispers something to you but you can't make it out. You walk closer to her bed pressing your ears closer to her. She quickly grabs you by the neck and yanks you onto her bed. You're lying on top of her. You can't move but she presses you close to her. Her legs are spread wide open but you avoid stimulating her mare parts... Or at least you tried to.
You pull your head closer to her. You take charge and quickly lean in for a kiss. Your lips touch and you both savour the unforgettable flavour of each other. Somehow, this time, she has her tongue wrapped around yours. You can't escape, but the feeling of her trapping you sends tingles up your wings. Your lips part and she whispers something barely audible to you, although you do catch what she says.
"And that’s what I'm going to do to you... in time..."
Had it not been for your bandages holding them in place, your wings would be up and at them right there and then. Rainbow Dash easily slips onto her front. Now you're on her back, her wings are prominently erect and aroused. You run your hooves along her back and lightly tease the base of her wings. She lets out a light moan, a signal for you to continue.
You slowly increase your effort, mowing up her wings. You can feel her heartbeat pacing faster. You slowly massage the tips of her wings. This causes her to let out a much louder cry. You continue pleasuring her wings, both speeding up and slowing down at times. She lets out a large moan and her wings drop onto the bed, limp. You fall down beside her, exhausted at your effort. You can hear her muffled panting even with her head buried in the pillow.
Eventually, she gets up and drags you off the bed.
She whispers something to you,
"Come on. I can't let you do all the work and let me have all the fun..."
"Umm... It's no problem really Rainbow..."
She shoves you into the wall, her hooves pinning you, stopping them from resisting.
"Get in the shower, now"
"Are you sure you really w-"
"That was an order..."
You decide to give in and quickly walk over into her bathroom. You turn the shower on and un-bandage your wings. You quickly get under the warm comfort of the rain shower and start washing yourself. Before you know it. Your face is being pushed up against the wall. Somepony has you front against the shower wall. You start to feel hopelessly vulnerable but your thoughts are stopped by the decadent feelings now on your wings. You can't turn to face Rainbow Dash but you know what she’s doing.
You feel something slid across the tips of your wings; it's too small to be hooves. You feel a rough texture to it and quickly realise what it was.
THAT'S HER TOUNGUE!!!
Your wings quickly spring into action, quickly being rewarded with the pleasure they so crave. You know you're going to be having a very, very long shower....
You both make quick work of drying each other off. You quickly collapse into her study chair while she takes position on her bed. You both just sit there in silence for a minute. Eventually, she breaks the silence with a question.
"Soo... You enjoyed that then."
"What do you think?"
"Oh I just can't wait for your birthday now...."
You feel the blood rush to your head as you process what she's trying to get at. You desperately crave some 'relief' from all this tension. You look out the window and spot the sun just starting to go down. You take this opportunity to get back to your own dorm.
"Uh... oh well! Look at the time. I guess I gotta go now!"
You spot the slight disappointment in her face but you notice the smirk in her smile. She knows why you so desperately want to leave but goes along with it.
"I'll see you in class Lightning..."
"Yeah! See you tomorrow Skittles"
"You don't have to jump out the window this time. The front door wasn't locked"
You can’t help but turning bright red from your embarrassment. You hadn't even tried turning the handle and now you feel like a complete idiot. You quickly wave goodbye and hoof it back to your dorm.
You b line it straight to your dorm and quickly unlock the door. Inside you spot Thunder, grooming himself in a mirror. He turns to face you and smiles.
"So? How did it go with Rainbow?"
"It was... Relieving"
"You dirty, dirty colt...."
"Shut up! And uh... Why so fancy?"
"I'm uhh.... just, trying to look good for...-"
"You're taking Flutter's on a date?"
You can see the rosiness in Thunder's cheeks, you decide not to embarrass him further and wish him a good night. You lock the door behind him as he leaves and quickly sprint to your bathroom. You flick the shower on although you don't intend to clean yourself again. You decide 'pleasuring your wings' don't cut it for you and quickly dive into the shower. You have other things in mind. You don't care what you’re going to do. Every other teenage pony on campus was probably jerking off in their free time anyway...
Damn you hormones....
Once again, you manage to come out of the shower feeling dirtier that when you did going it. Given that you were clean when you entered...
Somehow, time seems to pass by you pretty quick at the Academy. You manage to make it to the top of the Wingball team. Thunder, also reaching heights with his skills. You both play in a series of matches and competitions. Every time you played, you knew you could count on your Skittles being there in the stands supporting you.
She would be sitting in her usually spot cheering you and Thunder on. Occasionally, she would be accompanied by Fluttershy who would either end up hiding behind her or shouting at the referee, claiming that Thunder was in fact fouled. Though you hardly see how somepony could tackle Thunder...
Even so, you also returned the favour by cheering Rainbow on at her races. You would watch as each time her laps became quicker and quicker. Eventually, she was a good 50% faster than you and to quote '20% cooler'. You protested saying that she was in fact 20% hotter. Somehow your bad jokes also seem to get a laugh out of Rainbow Dash.
Every now and then, either of you would bruise a wing or sprain a muscle, keeping you two out of action for a few days. You both went on countless dates together; either spent watching a Wonderbolt's performance or just watching good movie. Eventually, the end of the school year has crept up on you and you find yourselves in the final weeks of your first year.
Tuesday. Flying practice
You quickly finish your lap. Once again, you were beaten by Rainbow Dash. She always dominated short distance flights. Although you did have better stamina, allowing yourself to out fly her in the longer races. But once again, she would beat you in another category.
Damn... Her moves are like something you've never seen anypony do before. Her extreme flexibility allows her to do twists and turns you could only dream of. She also has the perfect build for a Pegasus, not to slim but not to buffed up. She had the perfect athletic build anypony could want.
Damn... Dat ass. She’s good in bed too...
You try to clear your mind of dirty thoughts but looking up Rainbow's backside isn't helping. You feel a whack at the back of your head and turn to see Thunder. He gives you the stare, causing you to snap out of your trance.
"You can wait until the holidays then you can get up with some fun times with Rainbow"
"That's easy for you to say, I bet you're knocking up Fluttershy every evening"
You spot a deep blush from Thunder; He hides it badly but gives you a stern look. Since a few weeks ago, there had been rumours that Thunder and Fluttershy actually had sex, given that it was legal and in private you still couldn't believe it. Even if it was true or not you can't help but feel disappointed that your best friend got laid before you.
You still try not to imagine the scene but still wonder how Fluttershy takes it.
"Does Fluttershy like it rough?"
"I hate you"
You can't decipher the expression on his face but something deep inside of you tells you not to press further. Lest you wanted your wings nearly snapped off.... again.
"So... are you taking Fluttershy out to the prom then?"
"Yeah, you bringing Rainbow Dash?"
Co-incidentally, this year the prom falls on the day before your birthday. Sadly, that makes you one of the youngest ponies in your year. You had already asked Rainbow Dash out to the prom and she agreed on one condition. She didn't have to dress up.
Fine with me...
You and Thunder return to your dorm. You both clean yourselves up and proceed to do your own things. Thunder volunteered to cook diner, giving you time to plan what you were wearing to the prom. You open your closet and pull out you suit.
Meh... I think I’ll go minimalist
You settle with a short sleeved shirt and a black tie. You stash that to one side of the closet, hoping to keep it wrinkle free for the prom.
You both have an eventless dinner and retire to your bedrooms. You quickly drift off asleep both in anticipation of the prom and for your birthday.
Next Chapter: You go to the prom and have a wild time. Nuff said
I have plans for a sequel. Does anypony want a sequel????

Last or second last chapter if you consider the epilogue!
Chapter 7: Making Amends!
"Lightning? Get up!"
*sigh* I don't wanna...
"Not now Skittles..."
You quickly shoot up, throwing your covers off. You spot a bemused Thunder in your room, leaning on your doorway. You nervously rub your neck, trying to direct attention from your red cheeks. You hope he hadn't been watching you sleep the whole morning.
"Uhhh, how much did you hear?"
"Yeah... well, just forget about it."
"Come on, get [up! We’re going to be late for lessons"
As if we’re going to learn anything. It's the last week of school! Can't we just chill out...
"Gimme a minute."
You lazily crawl out from your bed and drag yourself to your bathroom. Thunder quickly makes his way out of your room to let you get on with your business. You flick the shower on and quickly step into the warm cascade of water. You try and stretch your wings out, cramped and exhausted from the training the previous night. You gently flex them, hoping to wake them up with the flow of warm water.
Damn I could do with a good massage!! Where the hell are you Skittles...
By now the warm water has revitalised your aching body and you feel partly ready to take on the world. Rainbow Dash in the shower with you could have easily made your morning but hey! You wing some, you lose some,
Partly dissatisfied with your morning shower, you apathetically start to dry yourself off. You quickly lament your bad night's sleep but you decide not to get hung up on it and don't let it ruin your day. Eventually, you emerge from your bedroom and spot Thunder expertly whipping up some breakfast. Recently, Thunder had been taking a great interest in cooking for you. In such a short time, you notice his cooking go from 'fire extinguisher aftertaste' to great restaurant comparable dishes.
You both make quick work of his meal and head off towards your last lessons of the year. This term they were covering weather control in class. You did your best to focus on the lesson but you keep spotting Rainbow Dash snoozing off in front of you. How she actually makes it through classes just astound you. You never really got a look at her report card but by the way she works in class you're pretty sure it couldn't be higher than a 'D'.
"Jeez, this is boring..."
Come on Rainbow, It isn't that bad
She turns to face you and you can see the boredom in her eyes. You give her a weak smile and she replies with a shy wave before turning back. You spot her taking down some notes and feel satisfied that she's at least making an effort because of you.
The lesson promptly ends on a high note. You quickly stuff your scribblings into your saddle pouch and follow Rainbow Dash out of the room. You all had finished your exams a month ago and were going to get your results over the holidays. You were confident in your performance and upon asking Rainbow Dash, she probably doesn't care how she did.
You both part ways; you head to your next class, 'Advanced Weather Flying' while she heads for her free period. Before she leaves she quickly pushes you up against the nearby locker. You hear the metallic bang as you back up into the steel storage container. By now you're used to the sudden outburst of affection and quickly look up to Rainbow Dash. Before you could make eye contact you could feel her sealing your lips with hers. This time you feel her savouring the moment. Either time has really slowed down or she was taking her sweet time. You shut your eyes enjoying the passion of the moment. You both engage in your usual swordfight between your tongues. She often has the upper hands, constantly amazing you with what her tongue can do.
Eventually, the sound of the school bell signalling the start of lessons prompts you to part from the kiss. Before she lets you go, she pulls you down to her height and whispers into your ear.
"I'll see you later. You can pick me up at 6:00. My dorm."
You say nothing, still lost in the kiss. Instead you slowly bob your head, just barely constituting as a nod. She lets out a cute giggle and quickly runs of down to the corridor, off to her next lesson. You quickly realise how late you’re going to be and know your teacher's going to have your head for being late.
Still worth it...
You quickly don your white shirt and black tie. You check yourself out in the mirror. After being satisfied with the condition of your clothes, you slick you mane back slightly with your hoof, adding a slight bit of gel for the volumizing effect. You quickly check yourself out in the mirror. Obviously you didn't want to look to formal and from the look you were styling, the shirt gave the casual-formal look.
You quickly turn and spot Thunder by your door. He makes his way in and you notice his get up for the prom. He's sporting a loose shirt with a dark blue tie. His slightly ruffled and unbuttoned shirt gives him that street appearance you think suits him well. Had you not know he was attending a prom, he could easily pass of as a hitpony. The thought off Thunder out on the streets murdering in cold blood sends a few cold shivers down your shoulder.
You both freshen up before leaving and head off to pick up your dates for tonight. You head off into the evening sky, making quick work of your journey. Your time spent running everywhere had certainly built up your stamina but you knew you were born to be in the sky. You feel the cool evening air rushing past your face and wings. The late afternoon winds were providing more than enough lift for you to glide comfortably.
You quickly brace yourself and make a perfect landing just outside Rainbow's dorm. You take a deep breath before knocking lightly on the door. You hear a short silence, only broken by a voice form inside. Whoever it is, was clearly taken by surprise and you can hear the commotion within as they make it to the door.
"Ummm.. Just coming! Give me a second"
You wait there patiently, anticipating a great night. Your mind is filled with images of Rainbow Dash and the many possibilities you imagine her coming out dressed with.
The door quickly opens and you spot the lovely cyan mare trotting out the room. She isn't wearing anything but a pendant though you think she’s done something with her hair. You spot a bright shine and a distinct glitter in her mane. You look past her flank and notice the same effect in her tail. You stand there, frozen on the spot, adoring the sight in front of you. You don't feel your jaw drop open and don't notice Rainbow Dash trying to grab your attention. Somehow, your attention moves from her head further down her body, past her wings and to her flank...
"Hey Lightning! My eyes are up here!"
You quickly revert your attention to the source of the voice. You spot Rainbow Dash walking closer to you. She quickly places a hoof on your jaw and gently shuts your mouth.
"You're starting to drool on your nice shirt..."
You look down at your shirt and notice a small recognisable wet patch where your saliva had been pooling. You quickly wipe it off, hoping it would dry off by the time you get to the prom.
"Damn, you look like a restless colt Lightning. I guess i won't bother asking how I look then"
"You look... amazing...."
"Thanks. And get your wings down, the last thing i need is you getting all exited in public"
You quickly try and control your wings reflexes and lightly peck Rainbow on the cheek. You get a light giggle from her and you both make your way towards the sports hall- the venue for the event.
"after you, M'Lady"
You hold your hoof out and let Rainbow lead on. Maybe it was because you were a gentlecolt, maybe it was because mares should go first or maybe deep inside... it just gave you another opportunity to stare at her backside. Either way, you decide not to let this opportunity be wasted and politely 'escort' Rainbow to the prom.
You both enter the hall. Immediately you notice the lively music and ponies. Over in the distance you spot a white blue maned pony manning the DJ booth. You question why anypony would be wearing sunglasses at a prom....at night. You could somehow guess she probably had dark red eyes under those glasses. You spent enough time with other ponies to know pony colours. You don't pay much attention her or any of the other staff, you presume they were hired by the school to perform for the event and quickly return your attention back to the students by the buffet table.
You and Rainbow head over to the little food corner and quickly spot a towering Thunder in the crowd. On the way you return a bunch of 'hi's' and 'how you doing?' from a variety of ponies in your year. After making it over to the buffet table you spot Rainbow Dash wasting no time in shovelling the assortment of food and treats into her mouth. Looking past Thunder you spot a quiet Fluttershy at the other end of the table. She’s wearing a light, pastel blue coloured dress for the occasion and you quickly make conversation.
Even after your mishaps with FLuttershy you two still get along quite well and discuss many of your shared interests. You eventually decide to return to your date, who is still filling herself from the assortment of edibles by the buffet table. You lightly tap her on the shoulder to catch her attention.
She turns and faces you. You can see her entire mouth stuffed with food and can't help but laugh at the sight of this. She quickly swallows her mouthful and joins you in your laugh. Before you could react, she quickly and very suddenly shoved a cupcake into your mouth. The whole thing doesn't quite fit, leaving your with a half stuffed cupcake sticking out of your mouth.
You swallow the whole cupcake with a struggle but quickly notice the butter cream left around your mouth from the baked dessert.
"Damnit Rainbow! You knew the cupcake wouldn't fit in my mouth"
She quickly sticks her tongue out and quickly lapped up any remaining cream around your lips before you could wipe them off. You blush lightly, surprised she was so brazen and daring to do something like that in front of your many friends. You give a weak smile to the half dozen ponies staring at you. You notice many of the mares look honestly surprised but you also spot their male counterparts wishing their dates could be like yours. You give them a sly wink before being dragged away by your lover.
You quickly make your way over to the dance floor. The loudspeakers are booming out a hypnotic catchy beat you just can't resist walking along to and bobbing your head. You see Rainbow Dash turn around to face you and quickly notice your movements. A smile starts to creep up on her face and she quickly stops in her track.
"So... you like the music huh?"
"Damn right!" You start to shake your body to the groove of the music, putting more energy into your movements.
You stop dead in your tracks and look back at Rainbow Dash. She's bursting into laughter from what she’s seeing.
"What? you don't like my awesome moves?"
"You call those 'awesome'? Move over and let me show you how it's really done!"
You make space for your Dashie to party to the music. She quickly dons a pair of heavily tinted sunglasses from nowhere. You again wonder why a pony would wear sunglasses inside a building... at night.
She pushes you aside and starts to break some amazing moves. Watching her nimble body turn in the spotlight like that makes you suddenly realise how much of a good dancer she was... or how terrible you were.
Her moves go on for the next minute until the song ends, applause is heard from the rest of the dance floor who had taken notice to her wild moves. There is a lull of silence as the track changes and you take the opportunity to praise Rainbow for her dance.
"You should stop making me look bad you know?"
"I can't help it, you're hopeless at times"
You can see she had worked up a visible sweat from her dance. Somehow, that gives her coat a nice appeal you seem to like. Her strong smell is also filling your nostrils, activating many thoughts within your brain. You wonder if she wanted to take a break from dancing but she doesn't seem to want to. The next track finally starts, you recognise this as a hit title, almost everypony whose anypony would know this song.
"Come on Lightning! Try to keep up!"
You take a deep breath and jump back into the fray of the dance floor with Rainbow Dash taking lead.
After a good long hour of hardcore partying, you spot ponies starting to make their way off the dance floor, too worn out to continue. Suddenly, you hear the music start again, but the tone was unlike all the previous ones. It was a soft low tune and the tempo was mind soothingly slow.
"Care for another dance Skittles?"
"Umm... Uhh, I can't... dance to this..."
"Come on, don't tell me you knew all those moves but can't slow dance!"
You spot some red creeping in on her cheeks and she gives you this weak innocent smile. You grab her by the hoof and wrap yours around her waist. You're now both on two legs, with you leading the dance. She places both her hooves on your shoulders, wrapping them around the back of your neck.
SWEET! those ballroom dance lessons FINALLY paid off!
You both rock gently to the tune, enjoying the lull of action and peacefulness of the moment. A few other couples have also taken back to the dance floor, mimicking your moves. You look up and stare into Rainbow Dash's eyes. In the dim mood lighting of the hall, you can still see a sparkly glow in them. You had learned a while ago that it's those caring eyes that really express a pony's feeling for you. You could stare into her eyes and look at what her heart was saying to her.
Your moves give all the conversation necessary, leading you both in a small trailing pattern. She looks back at you and you both are locked into a staring gaze, a small smile grows on her face and she leans her head in. You do as follows and allow your temples to touch and lean against each other. Immediately you feel the connection between you two. Her warm body giving off that soothing heat.
Eventually she whispers something only you can hear over the music.
"You blinked, I win"
NAWWWW... still trying to compete
You don't say anything, you close your eyes and lean in, Your lips touch almost instantly, giving you both that loving passion you both enjoy. This time, your kiss is more caring and slower in its embrace. Unlike when she would attack you with her barrages of love. You both slowly creep your tongues into each others mouths, you taste that unforgettable mix of wild berries but this time it’s accompanied with a bit minty aftertaste. You both crave for more and indulge yourselves in the heat of the moment.
The song comes to an end, you both part your lips slowly. You look up at Rainbow Dash, still caught up in the kiss. She looks at you, this time with lazier eyes. You grasp her close and whisper into her ear.
"I love you Rainbow Dash..."
"I love you Lighting Strike..."
You both part and leave the dance floor together.
For the next two hours, the party goes on. The whole time, you see Thunder and Fluttershy mostly talking alone in the corner. Neither of them seems to want to dance though it still looks like their having a ball. You leave them alone to do their own thing and crash out in a lounge chair in the dark nether regions of the hall.
Pretty quickly, you find yourself indulging in another smooch fest with Rainbow Dash, ignoring the party and music around you. You try not to let Rainbow Dash dominate you but you also can't help having a sense of competition. You both wrestle and fight for a top position, still showering each other with kisses.
The party starts to die down by now and many of the pony couples start to file out and leave. Only a few stray stragglers are still left in the hall, getting up to their own business...
You feel the energy drained from your body, an entire evening of rocking out like that does that to a pony. It seems the same could be said for Rainbow Dash. She had nearly collapsed by your side and is now heavily leaning on you for support. Her body is stretching over yours, legs dangling of the ground. You look at her face and notice a tone of worry in it.
"Anything wrong Skittles?"
She replies in a tired but playful tone.
"I told you to stop calling me that!"
"You still didn't answer the question."
Her head drops back down and dangles of your back. You start walking back towards her dorm, slowly pacing through the dimly lit paths.
"Do you want to talk about it?"
She fiddles about on your back before taking a deep breath. She turns to face you and you look at her with an inquisitive face.
"Lightning... Do you like the way I am?"
"What do you mean Dashie? You know I love you!"
"Yeah but do you like... you know, like.... ummm. Do you like my body?"
"Yeah! What pony in the right mind wouldn't?"
"It's just that... when we were at the prom, i heard lots of ponies talking about me. The way I act, the way i look. My body and-"
"What did they say about you?"
"I don't know... stuff about me being a tomboy, working out to much, not doing 'mare' things..."
You start to slow your pace, looking into Rainbow's eyes, you can clearly see how concerned she is about this.
"Do you think I'm over-muscular?"
That was the last straw. You stopped dead in your tracks and gently lower Rainbow off your back. You meet her face to face and place two hooves on her shoulders.
"Rainbow Dash, you are the most beautiful, wonderful and coolest mare I've ever met and I don't care what anypony thinks about you. You're not over muscular, you have the perfect body anypony could wish for. Their just jealous of the life you lead and probably your amazing coltfriend."
She looks into your eyes and takes a moment to process the information.
She lightly punches you on the shoulder and you continue your speech.
"It doesn't matter what you do Rainbow Dash, as long as you're damn good at it. You always want to be the best and i guess that’s how i fell in love with you..."
You spot a tear forming in her eyes. You gently wipe it away but she quickly stops you and wraps herself in your hooves.
"Thanks Lightning. Nopony's ever said anything like that to me before."
You both continue the hug for a minute, standing silently under the light of the tall footpath lamp. In the distance you hear the faint but low ding of the bell tower. You count the bell strikes and make it to be midnight.
"Happy Birthday Lightning..."
"Thanks Rainbow Dash"
"Hey... Can I go back to your room. I left your birthday present their"
Oblivious to her intention, you quickly agree to walk back with her to your dorm. Some part of you finally figured you were going to have a long 'tiring' night...
You stir lightly in your bed and quickly sit up. You rub your eyes lightly and try to figure out where you are. You quickly look down and spot a mess of rainbow hair and cyan blue fur tangled between your cover. Your mind suddenly remembers last night's... events.
Your mind drifts off to the most amazing night you've ever had. Nothing you ever experienced had compare to what you both got up to last night. You also remember the immense pleasure you both felt while being together. You quickly urn and look back to Rainbow whose now slowly waking up. She looks at you caringly and pulls you down on top of her.
"Did you enjoy your gift?"
"Yeah... but do I only get that on special occasions?"
"Well... we can do it again if you like it..."
You just stay silent and smile eagerly at her. She giggles and pushes you off of her.
"You dirty colt, you acted like you had done it before..."
"Nah... I could tell you hadn't either."
Suddenly the bedroom door slams open, inside comes Thunder rushing through the door. He quickly freezes on the spot when he spots you both in bed, a quick examination of the room, your bed and your current position he quickly came to a suitable conclusion.
"DEAR CELESTIA! YOU... JUST... HAD... SEX?!?!"
Rainbow quickly snaps back at Thunder sporting slightly annoyed look.
"Jeez Thunder why you don’t shout louder, I bet only half the whole school heard you."
You cover yourself under the cover and quickly point towards your doorway.
"Dude! did the tie hanging on the door not mean anything to you??!?!?!"
"Oh... yeah. I wondered why ponies did that..."
He quickly shoots out the room as fast as he got in leaving you two both alone in the room again.
Well, that spoiled the mood...
"I guess we'd better get out of bed then."
You hear an audible sigh of disappointment from Rainbow but you quickly think of something to cheer her up.
"Don't worry Skittles! There are plenty of things we haven't tried in the shower yet."
She quickly perks up and darts into your bathroom, flicking on the hot water. You follow behind her and promptly lock the door behind you...
After experimenting greatly in your new found world of relationships, you and Rainbow both take a gentle stroll around the campus. Barely any work is being done. Almost all the lessons have stopped and many ponies are of today returning to their families or hometowns.
Thunder had volunteered to do some work experience in the weather factory this summer while you would only return back to your town to visit your parents for a week.
"Soo... any plans for the summer Dashie?"
"Meh... I don't think I want to visit my parents soon and everypony else I know is taking leave somewhere else."
"Well... I guess us two are stuck here for the summer then?"
"OH Lord! A summer stuck alone on campus, in bed with Lightning!" She pretends to act dramatic and collapse in front of you. She does a terrible act and you quickly reply back.
"WOAH WOAH WOAH... who said it had to be in bed?"
You give her a cheeky smile and she only winks back at you. The fact she was looking forward to your suggestion had already aroused you slightly. You both head off for some lunch, enjoying the natural beauty around you."
"Damn I really want to be the fastest flier in Equestria!"
"Don't worry Dashie, you'll get there someday. Either way, you have the whole summer to practice with me!"
Epilogue: How does flight school ends for you?
Finally complete with my story. I hope my writing skill has really developed and improved over the course of the fic. I'm nowW
writing a sequel that takes place WAY after flight school, time set around the show.
The epilogue for this will kind of give some closure to all the other things around Lightning. It's also going to set the story for the sequel.
Thanks for reading!
No spoilers or anything but I would be very gratefull if anypony could give sugestions for OC names.
1) Suitable names for RD's parents?
Please PM any suggestions to me. Huge Thanks!
I will choose a good suggestion and give all credit to the person who suggested the name.
Not that they would be in the sequel.... or anything. *wink wink nudge nudge*
Epilogue: How did it all end?
You spent your whole summer relaxing and hanging out with your marefriend Rainbow Dash. You two both got up to many adventures both in the bedroom and out. Besides seeing a variety of Wonderbolts shows and performances, you two also went out to movies and fancy dinners.
Before you knew it, your 8 weeks of summer fun were already up, bringing you two back to the school routine. You spent your second year very productively, putting your full effort into your work and sports. Your Wingball team eventually did make it through onto the national league, giving you and Thunder the chance to play on the big stage.
You, Thunder and the rest of the team would spend many weeks in and out of school. Often going on tours to other parts of the country. You played against many of the finest young sports ponies in Equestria, winning and losing your fair share of games.
What made you try your best? The fact you knew somepony was waiting for you when you returned. Every time you returned from your tours you would always head straight to Rainbow's dorm first. She would always be waiting for you inside, usually with the intention of giving you a reward for your brilliant efforts.
Then the day came.
The same spring day that would be permanently engraved into your mind.
You have just returned from another tour, successfully winning the Intermediate cup. One final year of this and you would graduate with your flying colours. You quickly flew straight over to Dashie's dorm, half expecting the usual fare. You make your near perfect landing on your usual spot and cal out to her window.
That's ok I guess...
The lack of response didn't scare you. She often hid inside, waiting to surprise you as you entered. You make for the door but quickly find the door to be securely locked. You do the only other gentlecolt thing there is to do.
You fly up to the window, which was slightly ajar. You lift it open and fly in slowly. You expect the usual Wonderbolt covered walls with various merchandise and souvenirs you got her lying on the shelves. To your surprise you notice the whole shelves devoid of any nick-knacks and the walls returned to their dull off white paint scheme.
Thoughts start to race though your head. You feel that addictive adrenaline rush coming on. You look around the room fearing the worst.
On top of the perfectly pressed bed sheets you spot a cyan blue envelope sealed with a rainbow wax stamp. You curiously pick it up and read the addressee:
To: Lighting Strike
You rip the delicate parcel open and quickly smell the distinct odour inside. The same shampoo and deodorant brand Dashie uses. You pull the folded letter close to your nose and breathe in that wonderful, memorable flavour. You quickly unfold the light blue paper and read the note slowly.
You know I hate writing sobby letters so I’m going to cut straight to it.
I'm sorry you had to find this letter where you did but I couldn't take it any longer.
You feel a small part of your heart crunch as you read the letter
I'm sorry but the things the school wanted for me and the things I wanted for myself just didn't match. I know I'm a great flier but I just can’t handle the crazy schoolwork. I hope you don't think I'm a coward for what I'm doing but I want you to know that I still love you and no other pony could ever replace that thing we had together.
I can't stay here in Cloudsdale but I don't know where I'm going to go. Don't worry about me; just do what you do best. You'll find me someday because I'm gonna get into the Wonderbolts. Look me up if you ever find me.
Never forget... I still love you.
You spot a tear stain the bottom of the letter and you fold it back into the envelope. You feel the fiery glow in your heart die out and you sit up on the bed. Your one and only love in life had left you but you can’t stay hung up on it.
You take it like a stallion and tuck the letter under your wings. You mutter quietly under your breath.
"I love you too.... Skittles..."
You prime your wings and head off back to your dorm. You had school work you still needed to finish...
Another year you still had to finish.
Such a sad ending. The sequel is well on its way to being written and I hope you're all excited to see how the second part of the story goes...
Remember. Still looking for OC names (if confused, refer to chapter 10 bottom of page)
The sequels out if anypony's interested...
I highly reccomend you read it.
Expect chapters to come out no earlier than 3 days. If it does, then i just had a lot of time.
Please note that this takes place after the end of 'Pulling Through' but before the epilogue. I might make more of these little extracts from their lives if I can be bothered to and if I can get a good plot for it.
Any requests or suggestions for some high-school shenanigans? Just PM me!
Monday morning. 2nd Period.
You sit patiently in your seat, waiting for today's lessons to pass. It was only second period and you were already dead bored. Everypony was. It was the last week till the winter holidays and even the teaching staff were ready to hit the hay for the year. You feel a bitter sting of cold air brush against your fur. you look to your side spot the window beside you slightly open. You promptly shut the window.
While standing beside the closed window, you notice the frost covering the whole grounds. The temperature was nearly below freezing and everypony knows snow is going to be forecasted for some time this week. You spot a lone pony hastily walking towards one of the other school buildings. From this distance, you can tell she's got a dark purple coat with pink streaks in them. You continue to follow her movements across the chilly courtyard. before long, she’s at the steps of the humanities building and making her way through the doors...
The picturesque scene in the courtyard was entirely ruined by the figure of this rainbow maned, cyan pony now pressed against your window. You disappointingly shake the previous scene out your window and refocus your attention to the pony in front of you. You can barely hear her muffled voice through the double glazing but it wasn't hard to understand what she was saying.
"LET ME IN!!"
You unlock the window, allowing Rainbow Dash to quickly slip in unnoticed. She losses her footing and trips on the window ledge but you quickly catch her and pull her in. Standing on all fours she brushes off her fur before making her way to her seat. She kisses you lightly on the cheek before walking past, brushing lightly against your side.
"Dashie, you know you're not supposed to come in through windows. It's the rule."
"Come on Lightning, if they don't catch me, it's all good. Plus, I thought you liked a bad mare..."
You turn slightly and give a cheeky grin but a quick tail whip by Rainbow Dash makes you stop before any unexpected wingboners show up. In good time, you're saved by the bell and numerous other ponies start to make their way into the classroom. Within minutes, the class has settled and the teacher in front begins his lesson.
"OK class, so today we’ll be continuing yesterday’s lesson 'why you do not fly through a thunderstorm in more detail. I hope you've all remembered to finish that assignment I set you all yesterday..."
You smile contently, knowing that you could recite an entire library full of information on this topic. You wonder for a minute just why does the teacher need to go through this section. Everypony in class knew this section of the book like the back of their hoof. You peer over behind your shoulders and you quickly remember why.
Sitting rather anxiously in the window seat behind you is the stunning Rainbow Dash, furiously trying to copy some notes on the thighs of her hind legs. You can’t help but let out an amused chuckle. Surely nopony would check there for any hidden notes.
You return your attention back to the teacher. You watch as he scribbles down a long chain of information on the board in front. You don't bother taking notes; you're the kind of pony that others say has no life and writes the notes in advance. But, your hard work has paid off and you decide to lean back and enjoy the lecture anyway...
It was nearly the end of the day. The end of the year. Everypony was desperate to leave. It was one of those lessons where nopony was really doing any work; the teacher had put a video on and was busy trying to solve his eight Sudoku puzzle. Around you, half the ponies were already fast asleep. The odd pony here and there were watching with interest and you were pretty sure that colt in the front row and center was actually writing down some notes.
By now, the desks have been moved out of their grid formation and everypony was sitting on lying about like it was a disaster shelter. You had the luck of finding a nice bean back propped up against the wall near the back of the class. You sat quietly throughout the film, although your attention was fixed outside the window. It was only 1 in the afternoon but the cloud cover had already made it look like evening.
You feel a hoof wrap around your chest. You instinctively tighten up for a second but quickly relax when you realize it was only Dashie, falling asleep on you. You feel her head leaned against your shoulder. Her mane hair bobbles against your body, you wrap a wing around both your bodies in an attempt to keep the heat in. You look back towards the screen.
The movie was only halfway through the 3 hour film...
You lean your head back against the wall, hoping to pass the time. You feel the warm radiant heat glow from Rainbow Dash, pulsing between the two of you. You let out a quiet pleasureful moan; barely loud enough for anypony else to hear. You start to feel your heavy eyelids, slowly coming down. You try your best to focus but let's be honest; It was a terrible film and nopony would give a shit.
Within a minute, Rainbow Dash was now fully slumped against your body; her full weight is now slumped across your waist. You just start praying to Celestia she doesn't start to drool.
The quiet atmosphere of the room was only occasionally broken when somepony sneezed or coughed. It seemed that the feather flu was going around the school and everypony was catching it. You've been successful so far, managing to keep healthy and well. Thunder on the other hand was enjoying his early holiday in bed "sick" for the last 3 days.
You hear a loud bang against the wall. The loud noise quickly wakes everypony in the room up from their sub-conscious state of drunkenness, bringing them off the ground. The loud noise had caused you to instinctively unfurl your wings, knocking the two ponies to your side; a face full of feathers isn't the best way to spend anypony's last lesson.
Sadly, the loud jolt had also awaken Rainbow Dash., causing to quickly stand up. You quickly feel a bone shattering force whack against your groin and a bruising smack against your chin. In the sudden wake-up, Rainbow Dash had pummeled your gentle region and her head had knocked you from below.
"FUCK, THAT HURTS!"
You're left on the ground, writhing in pain from the stumble. Your profanities are quickly echoed across the room as everypony turned to you, all very silent and curious as to what Rainbow Dash was doing with you. Humorously, the teacher had not bothered to turn or look in your direction but replied apathetically. .
"mind your language..."
"yeah... sorry teach."
While you start nursing your sore areas, hoping to get some feeling back into them, everypony has
returned their attention back to the excitable pony by the window. You spot the light green pegasi jumping on the spot, tapping the glass in a hyper state. Everypony was now converging on the spot, hoping to see what the whole fuss was about. Once they had had a glimpse of the outside world you could hear the symphony of mare crying out in joy and the colts brohoofing.
You turn confusingly to Rainbow Dash who had just returned from the window and was now screaming fangirlishly beside you. She could barely contain her excitement and was bouncing on the spot. You continue to look at her in confusion, hoping to get an answer as to what was going on.
"Ummm... update please?"
Snow... something that comes once a year and looks entirely magical to everypony. Where you came from, there was rarely snow; often only a light sheet here and there but you've loved playing in the snow like anypony else. Something about it just made you feel like a 10 year old all over again. A grin quickly spreads across your face, desperate to start frolicking in the white, freezing flakes of joy.
A roomful of pleading eyes quickly turn to the teacher, now stuck on his eleventh Sudoku puzzle. He looks up at all the mournful faces before quickly sighing and facehoofing annoyingly. He was probably glad that he could call it a day and even a year. He looked at the clock on the wall before nodding approvingly.
"Fine... the staff party doesn't start for about half an hour but i can see we're all spent for the year. OK everypony, stay safe out there, don't stay out too long; guys, don't freeze your balls off I wish everypony a good Hearth-Warming holiday. See you all in a month's time!"
With that, you swear you could feel the air being pulled out the room as everypony started to flood out the door, hoping to spend the rest of their day out on the campus...but in the snow.
You quickly get up, not wanting to be the last out of the room. You make it 2 steps before a sharp tug pull you back. You feel a hoof choke you by the neck before being quickly spun around. Before you could recognize the pony in front of you, you feel somepony's warm lips against your own. You feel the excitement and energy just a second ago melt completely from your body. You wrap your hooves around what you now make to be Rainbow Dash's waist, pulling her closer to you.
Before you even started to really enjoy it, Rainbow Dash breaks the moment. She pulls away but still holding on to you. You look deeply into her eyes, seeing a very satisfied pony both in it and in its reflection. she says something you barely caught in your memorized gaze.
"That was for crushing your bits earlier"
Satisfied that She wasn't referring to the money on yourself, you smiled innocently back.
"-Now come on!" You feel her drag you along once again, this time towards the window.
"DASHIEEE... where are we going?"
She looks back at you, both with devious intent and with glee.
"I'm definitely not going to be the last one into the snow! and you just cost me some valuable time... so we're taking a shortcut!"
You watch as she quickly slides the window open and sliding through with ease. You take a deep breath as you feel the cold winter air blow against your coat. you quickly place you two front hooves on the window, ready to leave but your impatient friend had decided that you were too slow.
You feel her quickly grab both your hooves before tucking her wings in, plunging towards the ground. Gravity had just been the ass he is and you were now falling out the 3 story building in a rapid free-fall
The last thing you remember from your sudden free-fall was the rather small looking snow pile beneath you and that insidious grin on Rainbow Dash's face. You find yourself lying upside down in a pathetic looking heap of snow. You instantly feel the cold chill of the frozen water on both your wings and fur.
You quickly face yourself the right way up, quickly spotting a very pleased Rainbow Dash floating above you. She sticks out a hoof, which you take with great gratitude. After pulling you up, she quickly lands beside you before nudging you playfully.
"Wow dude, you suck at free-fall chicken!"
"You never told me we were doing that! plus, it's like, way to short too do that stuff, how did you even recover from like 10 meters!?!? that's li-"
"Yeah yeah... whatever... come on! we're missing out on the fun!"
You stare at that incredibly sad, pleading face staring right at you; desperately hoping to get you moving. You succumb to the cuteness overload and quickly get of your rump. You start to feel the chilling sharpness of the ice ground beneath your hooves and wince in shock for the first few steps. By now there was at least a good half a foot of snow blanketing the whole area. In the distance you faintly spot and hear ponies enjoying themselves in the winter wonderland.
This is FREEZING! How does anypony deal with this?!?
You slowly trail behind Rainbow Dash, now calmly ploughing through the semi-deep snow. This is one of the rare occasions that almost every pegasi chooses not to fly and instead, enjoy the crisp snow. You look back ahead, staring straight at the rear end of your friend. You stare not in an engrossed fashion, but that of a blank stare. You suddenly focus back at the light tail flick she keeps doing.
GAWD that looks so sexy....
You swear you felt some dribble on your chin and quickly wipe it away. Sadly, the deep blush that accompanied it was still fresh on your face. You pray to Celestia that she doesn't turn her head around now. half to do with the fact you've probably got the biggest and hardest wingboner nopony could miss for a mile, but also as her turning round would ruin the perfect view.
You can't help but whack yourself on the head, hoping to clear the sea of dirty thoughts out of your mind and once again, that bright blush appears on your face. You take a quick look around, hoping nopony actually was nearby and was watching you.
Damn hormones... you're practically killing m-
You're private argument with your biology has somewhat distracted you from the walking pace. Rainbow Dash had just stopped abruptly on the path and you'd only just reacted. Any second later and you would have had you face right up in there.
You lock your body in position, teetering just inches away from Rainbow Dash. you watch the bead of sweat trickle down your forehead, causing a cold spot across your face. You spot the bead stop short of your nose, dangling in between you and Rainbow Dash's rear end.
You hear a questioning "hmmm" come from Rainbow Dash and quickly retreat a step back from her. You move yourself sideways partly, hoping to identify the source of her abrupt halt. You're pretty sure she never sensed what was happening behind you but advance slowly with caution.
"You OK Dashie?"
You hear a quiet scrunching of something as Rainbow Dash bent down. You wait there, patiently, honestly confused and annoyed. You call out to her once more.
She turns around quickly, pivoting on her hind legs. You spot her lunging at you, forehoof in motion. You instantly react leaning back and supporting yourself with one hoof while using the other to try and shield yourself. The next few seconds pass by in a flash. Forget what they say about time instantly stopping or slowing down. YOU can't even remember what you did.
You expertly manage to grab her armed hoof, ending her sneak attack. You find yourself balancing on a hoof, still holding on to whatever Rainbow Dash has used to assault you. You tilt your head forward and notice her, barely standing on her hind legs.
It was clear to you that she had lunched further than she could stand and was now leaning on your body. You squeeze her hoof gently, causing her to release the ball in her hand. You watch as the perfectly constructed snow ball broke apart as in contacted the ground. Both you and Rainbow Dash return your attention back to each other; meeting in a shocked gaze.
Finally, the icy ground you were on had melted sufficiently and you lose balance on your remaining hooves. You tumble on your back, onto the icy ground for the second time today. This time, you pull Rainbow Dash with you, causing her to fall fight onto your front. You both blush in embarrassment as Rainbow Dash immediately proceeds to get off your warm body. She cries out in surprise.
You roll your eyes in boredom. You had good reflexes that was it.
umm... My name is "Lightning" hint hint.
You retort in a defensive tone.
"You tried to kill me with a snowball!"
She doesn't reply, now very busy scooping up piles of snow, preparing her ammunition for another attack.
"If it's a war you want. It's a war you'll get!"
Not the best line to start a snowball fight but you weren't ever good at comebacks. You retreat a good 20 yards and start furiously constructing your own little fort and weapons. You strain yourself, annoyed at how fiddly it was to make a ball shape with your hooves. Even so, your crap looking snowballs were beginning to stack up.
You peep your head slightly over the top your snow mound, hoping to get a look at what Rainbow Dash was up to. You slowly creep up over the mount, exposing your head only from the nose up.
Clearly, you were too exposed. You feel the snow across your whole face, partially blinding yourself for a moment. You quickly wipe off the loose snow then shuddering when you realize some had gone up your nose. You regain your vision quickly enough to spot Rainbow Dash, collapsed on the cold snow, clearly satisfied with the head shot. You weren't gonna have first blood that satisfyingly and quickly grabbed one of your snowballs.
You take a step and lunge forward as you thrust your weight into the throw. You watch as the snowball arcs across the sky, quickly falling back to Equestria.
You spot Rainbow Dash, stunned and brushing the snow off her flank. You hit exactly where you aimed for. You stare at her, hoping she would concede at your "tactical" shot.
Not a chance.
She quickly got up and put her hoof down. Your gaze is drawn to her face. It was the face. The hybrid look of determination and "I'm going to kill you!" stare straight at you. You reply with the most innocent greeting smile.
"TI"S ON NOW!"
Shit's going down for real now....
You quickly grab the largest pile of snow balls you could carry and bolted it into the sky. A quick ear turn behind you, told you that Rainbow Dash was close behind. You make a sudden turn around, switching to backwards flying. You grab your snowballs and quickly chuck some in an attempt to slow her down.
She easily dodges them and continues to close in on you; catching up with gradual speed. She launches a few of her projectiles in return, just clipping your right wing. You regain your balance easily enough, knowing very well that feathers stand better against the environment.
By now you two are both hovering in the sky, pelting each other furiously with snowballs. Each of you have scored some really good hit, covering each other in a layer of snow. You quickly realize that your drawn out engagement has nearly left you out of ammo, causing you to try and move to a lower altitude,
Lost all my balls...
Not surprisingly, Rainbow Dash instantly spots your lack of snowballs and is now hot on your heels once more. You put A plan together, knowing she can't help but follow you. Knowing you have nothing to throw back would mean she would try and get in real close.
As expected, you feel her wings flapping just above you. You look down at the ground - so narrowly close to you and spot Rainbow Dash's shadow in the snow. You quickly dive down, leaving barely a pony's height to the ground. you try your best to scoop some snow, using your speed like a plough.
Alas, your efforts were in vain - even you could not reach that low down. You hear a very manic laughter coming from above you. Rainbow Dash was already throwing her remaining snowballs. The speed and proximity of you two meant that the impact stung like... a very fast snowball.
You pray once more, hoping you don't kill yourself before making your final move.
You angle up and quickly shoot up towards Rainbow Dash. turning upside down to face her. You pounce in from under her; making it impossible to miss her, she was almost on top of you. You power onto full speed and quickly make contact with her. You wrap your hooves around her chest before quickly tucking your wings in firmly. You hear her surprised gasp as she realizes she was now falling.
You feel her kick at your stomach and knock your head once or twice but the deed was done. You both crash into the snowy field at speed; tumbling in the deep snow for at least fifty meters. You watch as the world spins around you, almost making you sick. You try and get a bearing of where you were but a white ground and a grey sky made it impossible to tell up from down.
You stop short of an abandoned attempt at a snow pony. Looking around, you don't see a soul in sight. By now it was probably very late. The low clouds made it hard to tell if the sun was setting but the darkening sky was a sign that it was soon time to get indoors.
You hear a muffled groan coming from beneath you. You quickly look down and spot Rainbow Dash in a perplexed heap. You look lower down and only just realize how you were lying on top of her. You could feel her body heat, clearly very warm due to your "workout".
You look back up at Rainbow Dash's face. now almost recovered from her roll. You look valiant in your spot, knowing you has bested her today.
"Do you admit defeat?!?"
She doesn't reply- instead crossing her hooves and sticking out her tongue like a foal. In short, it was her way of admitting defeat. You don't push further, knowing the fragility of her pride. She sits there, now drawing something in the snow.
You only now truly admire the cuteness of the scene. You find it adorable how Rainbow Dash looks, playing in the snow while still having small clumps, stuck onto her fur. Her mane somehow was not phased by the whole event and still looks as messy as ever.
You lean over to her and kiss her lightly on her lips. This time you feel a cold shock as your lips meet. Both you and her huddle close for warmth; still savoring the taste of each other. This time, her summer berry fruits give way to a frosty, mint aftertaste. Although surprised, you find it exciting having a different experience corresponding to the time of year.
Eventually, you both part. By now, the weather was truly dark, you watch as heavy, thick snow started to fall again and the sun nearly disappear into the horizon. It was probably barely five o'clock but it was winter and days are getting shorter. You realize it was probably time to get indoors- and fast.
Your train of thoughts are quickly interrupted by a high pitched but muffled sneeze.
You turn to the sound of the voice, seeing Rainbow Dash wiping her nose. You can see in her face that he was clearly not well and it was now your priority to get her indoors.
"Dashie? did you catch a cold? You're sick aren't you?"
She speaks through a strained voice.
"yeah, I think so... on the bright side. It would mean I've infected you now."
You quickly stick your tongue out and wretch at the fact you're probably going to spend the next week bedridden. Still a side though creeps into your mind.
"Well, we could be sick together i guess..."
You hear a delighted laugh from Rainbow Dash, followed by another cute sneeze.
"Come on, we're going home."
You walk side by side with Rainbow Dash, making good pace to her dorm. You spot the odd pony here and there, now all clad with winter gear; scarves, hats and even mittens. It seemed that you two were the only ones who went out without winter gear.
You quickly make it to Rainbow Dash's crash-out, getting inside and making the place comfortable. You quickly tidy Dash up before leading her to her bedroom. by now she was well and truly out for the count. You quietly tuck her into her small but comfortable bed before kissing her goodnight. She stirs only lightly in her sleep although you hope to leave before she actually starts to snore.
You flick the lights off, leaving only her desk light partly dimmed. You slowly make your way to the exit, preparing yourself for the long haul back to your dorm.
The quiet whisper barely grabs your attention but you stop in your tracks. You turn back towards Rainbow Dash who was now sitting up, rubbing her eyes. your inquisitive face prompts her to continue.
"Please don't leave. I don't want to be alone..."
You think long and hard about where you were going to go. You also didn't want to have to walk back through what almost seemed like a blizzard and you certainly didn't want to leave Rainbow Dash in such a state.
Ah well... You got to fend for yourself Thunder!
You walk calmly to Rainbow Dash's bed; she moved over slightly to accommodate the two bodies in the bed. Within seconds, she had wrapped herself entirely around your body. You keep a hoof around her shoulder to support her head. You feel just how cold her body was in comparison and felt every inch of her body wrap tighter around every spot on you.
You start to drift off to sleep, hoping to join your marefriend in slumber-land. Before you do, you mumble a barely audible sentence.
" Happy Hearths Warming Dashie..."
