Author's Note: Been a while since we've been here, huh? Welcome to my late Mother's Day special. Now, as you know, last chapter ended with Blue's end of the first day of school. Since school started in September, and Mother's Day is in May, that means this is a special chapter. The events of this chapter do happen, but after this chapter we'll be going back to the school's early days, as I know you guys don't wanna miss most of Blue's first year. As for any characters or weird things that appear in this chapter, I'm going to leave them a mystery until when Blue first discovers them himself. So that means I won't be explaining anything until later. Hey, it's my fic and I can do what I want. Just trust me, okay? Also, thanks for one thousand total views. Now, on with the story.
I slowly open my eyes, this time not being binded by my mom opening my window and shining the sun on my face. Well, this Sunday is already going well. Wonder why shes not up though. And why did I bring up it being Sunday? Oh well.
I get up from my bed and head out into the hallway. I look over out into the kitchen, but see nothing. Where is she?
Just then, my parents' bedroom door opens and my mom steps out wearing a robe.
"Hey, mom." I say.
"Oh, good morning, sweetie." she says with a mixture of sleepiness and cheer. "Is there something you want to tell me today?"
"Uh... Good morning?"
She giigles. "I mean besides that."
"Uh... Where's breakfast?" I say sheepishly.
Her smile drops into a frown. "Oh, okay. I'll get started on it.
But before she goes, Haily steps out of her room. "*yawn* Morning." she says.
Mom turns to her and starts smiling again. "Morning, Haily. s there something YOU wanted to say to me today?"
Haily starts tapping her chin. She opens her moyth to talk, but closes it as she thinks some more. She eventually gives up. "Nothing I can think of."
Mom just sighs as she walks to the kitchen. "I'll just get breakfast going then."
Haily and i look at each other in confusion, but quickly shrug it off as nothing.
As Raindrop starts cooking breakfast, she starts trying to cheer herself up. 'Maybe they're just pretending not to know so they can surprise me later. Yes, I'm sure that's it.' she starts smiling again.
"That wasn't it. They really did forget that it was Mother's Day." Raindrop says in sadness as she enters the bedroom with her husband already laying in bed. She gets in and goes to him for comfort. "I can't believe they forgot."
"There there, honey. I'm sure they didn't mean to. It's been a crazy year for them. I'm sure they'll figure it out soon." Thundercloud says, comforting his wife.
"I sure hope so."
That night, she silently sobs herself to sleep. I don't even know what I did yet and I feel bad... this feels weird.
The next morning
I wake, this time not as happy as before. I hate Mondays. But at least I yet again don't have to deal with my mom's literal rise and shine.
As I enter the hallway, I look into the kitchen and see my mom moping as she drinks some coffe.
I walk up to her. "Uh, hey, mom."
She doesn't even turn to look at me. "Good morning, Blue."
"So, uh, how's about breakfast?"
"I don't feel up to it this morning. Can you make it yourself?"
I give her a slightly worried look before walking off. "Uh, sure, I guess."
Haily walks into the kitchen as I start making myself some toast. "Hey, Blue. What's up with mom?"
"I don't know. She seems depressed."
"Yeah, I'm worried about her."
"Me too. But we got school first. We'll figure it out once we ge back."
"Okay, if you say so."
The rest of the morning is pretty uneventful, especially with my mom's depression. I've never seen her like this. I wonder what could be wrong. I just hope she'll be all right.
Later that day, in the cafeteria during lunch
I approach the table with Drax, Zephyr, and SeaBreeze all sitting down, waiting for me. I slump as I sit down and sigh to myself.
"What's the matter, Blue?" Zeph asks.
"I'm not sure why, but my mom is really depressed about something."
"That's weird. Your mom is usually so cheery."
"Yeah, I know."
"Well, did you do anything eith her for Mother's Day yesterday?" Breeze asks.
I perk up at that. "What did you just say?"
"Did you do anything with your mom for Mother's Day?"
I start freaking out. "I completely forgot it was Mother's Day yesterday!" I shout while holding my head.
"Ouch. THat explains why you're mom's so depressed. Did Haily remember?" Drax says.
"*sigh* Not from what I noticed."
"Geez, that sucks. My mom loved the bracelet I got her." Zeph says.
"And my mom just liked me doing my chores." Breeze says.
"I just gave my mom a hug and said I love her. More than what I normally do." Drax says.
I get up from my seat. "I'm gonna go."
"To the library to wollow in how bad of a son I am in quiet."
My friends just sit in silence and look at each other as I walk off.
'I can't believe I forgot.' I think to myself. 'She must think I'm the worst son ever. All she's done for me and I can't even remember Mother's Day. What is wrong with me?'
I enter the library and I just slump at an empty table to be alone.
But apparently I can't even have that as my friends Book Worm and Comedic Arts join me.
"Hey, Blue. Why the long face?" Art asks.
"That's because he's a pony." Worm says.
"Shut up. I'm trying to be serious right now. Seriously, Blue, what's up?"
I pick my face up to look at them. "I forgot about Mother's Day yesterday."
"Ouch." they both say.
"Sorry to hear that." Worm says.
"Yeah, now my mom's all depressed."
"Did I hear somepony is depressed?" a voice asks from behind me. I look to see the librarian, Mist Scribe, walking up. "So, you forgot Mother's Day, Blue?"
"Well, I had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday with my son, Rhino."
"You have a son? Why haven't we met him?"
"Here, see if you can figure it out." she pulls out a picture and hoofs it to me.
I take it and see a green unicorn colt our age with a black mane and tail with a blue stripe in each. "Oh, I get it. He's a unicorn."
"That's right. He took me out to dinner last night."
I slump again. "I wish I had done something for my mom."
She places a hoof on my sholder. "Blue, she's your mother. I'm sure she'll forgive you. Maybe just try making it up to her."
I perk up and smile. "Hey, yeah. Why didn't I think of that?"
"I think it's obvious." Art says before Worm punches his foreleg.
"And I think I know just how to do it."
Later, back at my house
Haily and I walk up to each other, both looking guilty. "Blue, I think I know what's up with mom."
"Yeah, I know. Mother's Day. We missed it."
"Oh. I thought it was just her time of the month."
I facehoof. Seriously? "No, it's not."
"Well, what are we gonna do to make it up to her?"
"I know what to do."
I lean in and whisper in her ear.
"But, Blue, we don't eeven know where those are."
"Then I guess we'll just need to go find them."
We go up into the house's attic and start rummaging through old trunks and cases in search of a certain something. We find stuff like trophies, medals, photo albums, some old instruments. Why they have an accordian, I have no idea. But we eventually find them.
Later, we go into our parents' room and find them just lying together.
"Mom, dad, we have something to show you." Haily and I say.
They each look at each other before getting up and following us into the living room.
"We're sorry about missing Mother's day yesterday, mom." I say.
"Oh, it's al lright, honey." she says.
"No, it isn't." Haily says. "We're doing this to make it up to you."
"We found our hold home movies up in the attic and set them up here." I say, motioning to the big screen set up.
"But I thought we lost those."
"Nope, just misplaced them. Now take a seat as the show starts."
Haily flicks the light switch as I turn on the film projector. Old videos of us starting playing. The days we were born, coming home from the hospital, learning to walk, talk, and fly. Basically everything of us when we were younger. Mom's eyes begin to tear up as a warm smile spreads across her face.
As the video ends, she looks down at us and hugs us. "Thank you both. I have such wonderful kids."
"And we have a great mom. Happy Mother's Day, mom."
Author's Note: While I might not be explaining them, I'll still give credit where credit is due. SeaBreeze belongs to superfunnelc. Comedic Arts comes from the guy of the saame name. Book Worm comes from Worm. And Mist Scribe comes from Rhino.
