Ponyville, 10:13 P.M., November 8th, 2012
After they had found Midnight in the cave and Rainbow Dash gained her trust for him again, everypony went back to their houses. Midnight and Rainbow Dash had been lying in bed, enjoying their time being together. Even though their separation was short, the pain was still strong and the scars would last. It all made their time back together all that much more wonderful. “So, Dash. This is fun and all, but I’m still wondering. What are we gonna do about Spitfire?”
“What do you mean?”
“Well she’s obviously gonna try and get more outta me. And if she finds that we’re back together, she’s gonna know that I ratted her out and she’ll kick you out of The Wonderbolts.”
“Oh, that’s true. I guess I never thought of that.”
“We need to come up with some way for her to be okay with us being together.”
“Hmm....Maybe we could get her to fess up.”
“Alright, how can we do that?”
“I’m not sure. Maybe we could play with her head a bit.”
“Well first off, you need to act like you still don’t know about it. But no offense, you’re not the best at acting.”
“Hey! I’m great at acting! I bet I could get her to say that she’s gonna go talk to you and I wouldn’t question it.”
“Hey, that’s it. You get her to come to me, and when she tries to get more outta me, I act depressed and bitch her out about it. So when she comes back to you, you can get her to tell you the truth.”
“Midnight, that’s genius!”
“Sounds like a plan. Now when’s your next rehearsal?”
“Tomorrow morning at 10:30 sharp.”
“Well, I guess that means we have the rest of the night to enjoy our time together.”
“Sounds fun. Have any ideas?” She said as she slowly rubbed her hoof across his chest.
“I think I might have one.”
Ponyville, 10:00 A.M., November 9th, 2012
“Alright, we have everything straight?”
“Straight as an arrow. I get her to come to talk to you.”
“And remember, if she ever comes close to figuring you out, deny deny deny.”
“Right. And I think you should talk to Twilight about it since we’ll be doing this at her house.”
“Alright, I’ll leave now and tell all of our friends to give us some headway. Get your uniform on and get going.”
“Okay. See yah, sexy.” She walked into the bedroom, and Midnight walked out the front door. He flew down off the cloudy ledge and headed to Twilight’s house. He landed down just outside of her house to find Twilight and Applejack.
“Oh, hey Midnight.” Twilight said as the two ponies walked up to him. “What brings you here?”
“Well, Me and Dash have a problem with Spitfire. If she finds out that I told Rainbow Dash about her, she’ll kick Dash out of The Wonderbolts. So we came up with a plan to get Spitfire to tell the truth to Rainbow Dash.”
“Okay. Is there anything we can do to help?”
“Well, Spitfire thinks I’m living with you. Dashie is gonna get her to come to talk to me. I just need you to be at home and tell her where I am. I’ll be in your room. Just remember to act like you know nothing.”
“Y’all got anything fer me to do?”
“Applejack, I need you to find all of our friends and make sure they stay away from Twilight’s house so no pony screws this up.”
“Aye aye!” She galloped off straight for Sugar Cube Corner.
“Alright, let’s get inside, Twilight.”
Rainbow Dash flew up to the outer gate of the Cloudiseum. She landed down right by the corner of the entrance where she knew no pony inside could see her. “Alright, time to put on a show.” She walked around the corner, keeping her head down.
Spitfire noticed her coming around the corner and walked up to greet her. “Hey, Dash! You ready for rehearsal?”
“Hey, what’s wrong? You’re not still upset about what Midnight did to you are you?”
“That’s just it. I’ve known Midnight for 11 years. I’ve always been able to trust him. Why would he do this to me now?”
“Hey, it can’t be all that bad.” She put her hoof around Rainbow Dash’s neck. “Would it make you feel any better if I went to talk to him after rehearsal?”
“If you think it can help.”
“I’ll do my best. Now come on, we’ve been waiting for you.” The two ponies walked into the backstage of The Cloudiseum.
Midnight had been waiting in Twilight’s bedroom while Twilight paced in the library waiting for Spitfire to show up. All of a sudden, Applejack came bursting through the front door. “I can’t find Fluttershy.”
Pinkie Pie came up behind her. “You’re looking for Fluttershy? She told me she was going to Cloudsdale to congratulate Rainbow Dash about being in The Wonderbolts and getting back together with Midnight.”
“What?!” Twilight yelled out in panic. “This isn’t good!” She dashed up straight up to her bedroom and slammed the door open. “Midnight, we have a problem! Fluttershy is going to Cloudsdale to congratulate Rainbow Dash about being in The Wonderbolts and getting back together with you!”
“What?! No no no no no no! Oh Fluttershy. She’s so innocent and delicate, but too damn obdurate and obstinate. What are we gonna do now?”
“I don’t know if there’s anything we can do.” Twilight said, “We need you to stay here, and we have no other pony who can get to Cloudsdale fast enough.”
“You’re right. I guess all we can do now is hope Rainbow Dash can figure out how to handle the situation.”
Fluttershy flew up to the backstage entrance to The Cloudiseum. The two security ponies quickly stepped in front of the doorway. “Excuse me, sirs. Is Rainbow Dash here?”
“She is. She’s doing rehearsal with the rest of The Wonderbolts. Unfortunately for you, we can’t let you in. No pony is aloud back here without a backstage pass or consent of The Wonderbolts.”
“Oh...okay. Well can you pass on a message? I mean, if that’s okay with you...”
“As long as we don’t let any pony back here who shouldn’t be, we’re doing our job. So I don’t see a problem with it.”
“Okay, well. Can you tell her that Fluttershy said she’s happy for Rainbow Dash for making it into The Wonderbolts and for getting back together with Midnight.”
“We’ll make sure she gets the message.”
“Alright, thank you sirs.” She turned around and began heading back to Ponyville. Just as she was out of sight, Spitfire and Rainbow Dash came up to the doorway.
“Who was that?” Spitfire asked.
“Somepony named Fluttershy.”
Rainbow Dash suddenly snapped in surprise. “Oh no.” She thought.
“She came with a message for Rainbow Dash?”
“R-really? W-what would that be?”
“If I remember right, she said that she’s happy for you for making it into The Wonderbolts.”
“Oh, well that was sweet of her.”
“And I think she said that she’s happy that you got back together with Midnight.”
“Crap!” Rainbow Dash thought, “I guess it’s game over.”
Spitfire angrily looked over at her. “Dash, if you’re back together with Midnight, why are you moping about him?”
“I...uuhhh...” She couldn’t think of anything to say. At this point, she knew she was screwed.
“He told you didn’t he!”
“T-told me what?”
“Don’t lie. I know that he told you. Rainbow Dash, get out of that suit, give it back, and get out of here. I no longer want to see you here in The Wonderbolts.”
