A strong wind blew through Ponyville. To most it would be an unremarkable occurrence, but to anypony who lived in Ponyville long enough the telltale streak of a rainbow that accompanied that wind told them it was something special. Rainbow Dash, Ponyville’s premier flyer, was zipping through the town much closer to the ground than usual. The tactic was part of her new plan for a landing that would, hopefully, involve less crashing through windows at her destination.
Rainbow Dash had finished her daily weather duties, though not in a particularly timely fashion lest she miss out on her midday nap time, was heading to the place that had recently become her favorite hangout, Twilight’s Library. As the speeding pegasus closed in on her destination she slowed down to land a few feet from the library’s doorstep. Silently cheering about her successful landing Rainbow decided the she deserved a pat on the back for not crashing through Twilight’s window and into a bookcase, which at the speeds that she normally flew at could make quite a mess of the normally tidy library. Oh yes, no big mess today. No spending two hours helping to clean up all those hundreds of books and placing them back on the shelves only to be told that those particular books are part of a series of alternate Equestrian history novels and do not belong in the history section. Nope they belong over there on shelf twenty-three, row two, and should be placed four spaces away from the left side of the shelf so there will be room for the first four books of the series once they are found. Nope, none of that today she thought. She reached up a hoof and gave herself that well deserved pat on her back.
It’s not that spending time with Twilight that way wasn’t cool, far from it. Twilight was the whole reason she even came to the library, well aside from the books and the occasional Pinkie Pie party. But oh how she dreaded re-shelving books. Still, it was a good day as there was no crash and thus no re-shelving. That meant that she could get right to the fun stuff. Rainbow Dash raised a hoof and knocked on the door a few times as she put on her signature ‘good to see you too’ grin for when Twilight answered the door. There was a bit of shouting from inside, although it was nothing that Rainbow was able to decipher, the pegasus knew full well it was either Twilight or Spike shouting at the other to get the door. Rainbow had been around Twilight long enough to recognize that particular routine. Soon enough the door swung open revealing exactly who Rainbow Dash had been hoping would not answer, Spike.
“Hey, Rainbow Dash,” The little dragon spoke cheerfully, “Twilight is in the usual place if you want to head upstairs.”
“Thanks, Spike.” Rainbow Dash said letting the grin vanish from her face. No sense in wasting her charms on Spike after all. Rainbow Dash trotted inside and made a beeline for the stairs. It had been an exhausting day of weather duty. Rainbow had to work two whole hours before she was able to sneak off for her first nap. That was so not cool. If they would just let her work at her own pace she could be done in zap. But no, she had to work with all those slower pegasi who just threw off her rhythm. She only really took naps to let them catch up, or so she had convinced herself. Rainbow Dash was really looking forward to unwinding with Twilight. Truly the best part of the day was their newest routine in the beautiful unicorn’s bed room.
Rainbow trotted into the room, shutting the door as usual in hopes of preventing interruptions. Twilight was already sitting on her bed in anticipation. Every time Rainbow Dash entered into that little sanctum of pleasure she would receive the sweetest gaze from those lovely violet eyes. She could swear up and down that Twilight was a natural at that ‘come hither’ look. The unicorn’s tail swished back and forth across the bed making her desire for closeness quite clear. Rainbow Dash once again applied her most attractive smile to make full use of her natural charming looks. The pegasus visibly straightened her stance, almost puffing out her chest as her wings slowly flared into full extension. Rainbow Dash proudly strutted over to the edge of the bed taking in every inch of that shapely body that eagerly lie in wait for her presence. Everything was perfect; this was going to be so awesome.
“I’m glad you could make it today, Rainbow Dash,” Twilight said, an enthusiastic tone permeating her voice, “It was absolutely crazy today. First the Cutie Mark Crusaders showed up this morning insisting that I had to have a ‘guide to cutie marks’ book somewhere and proceeded to tear every book off the shelves to try and find it.” Twilight let out a heavy sigh before continuing. “They finally left after wrecking the whole place but then, of all the bad luck, the group showed up for our monthly book club meeting and the whole place is a complete mess,” with each word her tone became more and more stressful, “So naturally we spent a few hours having to clean up before we could even start the club meeting. By that time everypony was already hungry only for me to realize that I didn’t have time to go shopping this morning.”
Rainbow Dash already knew where this was going. Twilight was in full on rant-mode. Rainbow knew the only two options she had were to let her get it all out or to nip this in the bud. Rainbow Dash could tell this was going to be a longer rant so she opted for the latter option. Climbing onto the bed and sitting down right next to Twilight, Rainbow Dash leaned in against the lovely unicorn draping a wing over her to keep her close. Her cyan hoof came up to press against Twilight’s lips hinting to the unicorn that it was no longer time for talking. There were things to be done, fun things.
“Shh, I’m sure your day was perfectly awful, Twi, but now I’m here,” Rainbow Dash said, confidence radiating from her words, “You don’t need to worry about all that bad stuff. After all we have plenty of time to work off all that stress.” Rainbow finished as she silently congratulated herself on, what she felt, was her most convincing speech yet. She lowered her hoof from Twilight’s delicate lips as she tried to resist the urge to bury her tongue between that soft crevice.
A calm look washed over Twilight’s face as she listens to her friend’s words. The unicorn leaned her head over and rested it against Rainbow Dash’s neck. “Oh, Rainbow Dash,” Twilight says letting out all her frustration from the day in a massive sigh, “You always know just what to say to reel me in.” Twilight pulled her head back and looked down at the bed. “Since you are so eager today why don’t we get started?” some of the energy returned to her voice.
“Sounds good to me, Twi. Do you want to start today?” Rainbow Dash asks excitedly as her eyes lit up with the anticipation of a filly visiting Sugarcube Corner for the first time.
“Certainly.” Twilight responded. Her horn glowed brightly as Rainbow Dash and Twilight gazed down at the bed. The book glowed with the aura of Twilight’s magic and opened to the first page.
