You had arrived back at Fluttershy's cottage from Canterlot, the events of last night and this morning heavy on your mind. You had a mix of emotions going through you. You were happy that everyone was alright, and you had survived, but you were distraught. The man who had taken you in when you lost your parents, the man who was essentially your father, was dead. He died a painful, lonely death. He died, believing you had betrayed him. He died, unknown of Celestia's feelings toward him. The traitor who took everyone's trust and smashed it under his feet was still alive, somewhere. You sat on the couch, staring off into space. Your heart ached, your eyes were tearing, the droplets full of emptiness and despair. Fluttershy took notice to you, and came to sit down beside you. She wrapped her arms around you, wanting to support you.
The tears now came through. It might've been the warmth and the love that filled you with the embrace, but you weren't worrying about that. You hung your head and cried. Cried for Czar, for Terra...
Given a few minutes, you calmed down. You wiped your eyes and sighed.
"Thanks...sorry..." You said, embarrassed.
Fluttershy shook her head. "No, it's fine..."
You returned the embrace. "Thank you...for everything...for letting me stay when you found me, for helping me make friends...for loving me..."
Fluttershy didn't say anything for a while. "You...lied when you said you didn't remember anything..."
Oh crap. You forgot about that.
"I-I'm sorry, I didn't want to worry you all. If I would've said something, you all would've focused everything, and you might've done something dangerous-"
Your words were cut off by Fluttershy's lips against yours. You were surprised for a second, but soon returned the kiss. The two of you sat there on the couch, kissing, in love, wanting nothing more than making the other happy.
To both of your dismay, you broke lip contact.
"I don't care. All that matters is that you're alright..." She said softly.
You smiled. "Still, I'm sorry. I shouldn't have lied. Ugh, I better be quiet before this goes on forever...
After more silence, you wanted to ask something.
"Do you want to go for a walk? I want to get some fresh air to help clear my head."
"Sure," She said standing up. You stood with her, and you walked out the door.
The two of you walked in silence, holding each other’s' hand, on the path to Ponyville. The sun hung low in the sky, causing the sky to be washed in a beautiful orange shade. You reached Ponyville, and you walked through the streets, whose streetlights were starting to turn on, giving a nice glow to the town. You could've sworn you caught a glimpse of a rainbow streaking across the sky, rearranging certain clouds and dispersing some, trying to sculpt a more romantic image. You smiled to yourself. As tough as Dash might be, she's got an eye for romance, you thought to yourself.
You looked down at Fluttershy. She looked back up at you and smiled. By now, you had walked to a certain spot in Ponyville where the buildings started to thin out, and grass spread out onward, trees littering the horizon. You and Fluttershy sat down right next to each other. The two of you watched the sun as it slowly dipped behind the horizon. You let out a soft 'wow' as you looked at the sunset. Rainbow Dash had expertly positioned the clouds lower than normal, having the sun make rays of orange peek through the clouds.
You and Fluttershy looked at each other yet again. You studied her visage. She was small, beautiful, innocent, kind to all, loving and caring. And she loved you. And you loved her just as much.
"I'm glad I met you, Fluttershy," You said just before you kissed Fluttershy, the sunset just behind you two. Your only response was her smile that you felt.
From then on, that spot would be your and Fluttershy's special place.
