Hey guys! I'm back to write another chapter after reading the longest fimfic I have in favorites; Sonic: Friendship is Eternal. Despite the punctuation errors, the fic is pretty damn good. Anyways, let's not wait anymore time! Here we go!
Swift and Rainbow were in that cave for Celestia knows how long, just sitting and saying nothing. The silence was driving them mad in their minds. It was too quiet, like they were in a room with no windows, no entrance, and no exit. However, this did let them think about the past, right back to when they first met.
"Hey-" the both said exactly at the same time.
"You go first," the both said, once again at the same time.
"Swift, you go first," Rainbow said quicky, before they awkwardly say the same thing again.
Swift gave a nod.
"Rainbow, I'm sorry for crashing into you," Swift apologized.
"No, if anypony's sorry, it's me," Rainbow replied. "If I was paying attention to where was going, we wouldn't be in this mess."
"No, I'm the one that wasn't paying attention," Swift responded.
They paused for a moment as a relization made them a laugh a little.
"Both of us didn't pay attention, did we?" Rainbow asked, giggling slightly.
"No, we didn't," Swift answered, chuckling.
There was just something about that little moment between them that made their heart feel like there was a part of a weight lifted from their heart. They knew it because both of them felt a uncomfortable heat rise to their face when they heard the others laugh. When they finally stopped laughing, they smiled at the other. If there was more light, they would be able to see a deep blush on the other's face.
"I seriously thought you were just a extremely cocky pegasus!" Swift confessed, before laughing slightly. "Boy, was I wrong!"
"I thought you were some jerk who liked to pick on other ponies just for kicks!" Rainbow laughed.
Swift walked up next to her.
"Well you were way off on that one," Swift chuckled. "And to be fair, I didn't really pick on you. I don't do that sort of stuff."
"Really?" Rainbow asked.
"Yeah, actually I hate ponies who do that," Swift answered.
"Same here," Rainbow replied, smiling.
Swift then thought for a second. Ever since he met Rainbow, he thought she looked somewhat familiar.
"Hey, where did you go to school at?" Swift asked, trying to see if his guess is correct.
Rainbow looked at him with raised brow.
"Cloudsdale," Rainbow answered.
"Same here!" Swift exclaimed with a smile.
Rainbow was a little surprised.
"Wait, did you drop out?" Swift asked.
Rainbow nodded, her eyes widening.
Swift's eyes widened as well.
"Now I know why you looked so familiar when we met!" Swift exclaimed. "You were the pony who did the Sonic Rainboom!"
Rainbow Dash gasped as she her memories of that day replayed in her mind. She remembered seeing a blue pegasus with emerald green eyes and a dark blue mane stick out in the audience of her race for Fluttershy's honor.
"Oh... my... gosh," Rainbow said in shock.
"I know right?" Swift asked, surprised. "It's crazy!"
The two stood in silence to let this news sink in. The silence was broken by a sound of chattering teeth. Swift looked at Rainbow to see her shaking. Swift looked outside to see that night had fallen, moonlight shining through the cracks. A cold breeze of wind hit his a body and he shivered. It was obviously starting to get colder as it got later into the night.
'Lovely, now it's freezing in here,' Swift thought sarcastically.
Swift looked back over at Rainbow to see her curled into a ball, shaking. Her coat, mane, and tail had started to grow pale and her eyes were dull. Swift soon started to feel the effects of the cold night.
"R-R-Rainbow?" Swift said with his teeth chattering.
Rainbow looked at him and saw that he was in the same condition except he wasn't curled up.
"There is one thing we can t-try to do to keep warm," Swift said, teeth still chattering. "But, I'm n-not really for it a-and I kn-know you'll be against it."
"T-tell me anyw-ways," Rainbow replied.
Swift whispered in her ear and she immediately jumped up.
"No, no, no, no!" Rainbow exclaimed. "I'm not cuddling with anypony!"
Another breeze hit her coat and made her change her mind.
"Okay, fine!" Rainbow yelled, her forehooves going around Swift's neck. "But don't take this the wrong way!"
"I was about to say the same thing," Swift said.
Swift let his forehooves wrap around Rainbow. They laid in their embrace, keeping the warm. Their faces were dangerously close. In fact, they could feel each other's warm breath on their face. The moonlight illuminated the area where the two pegasi were embraced and now they could see the other's face. Both of them were blushing a deep red as feelings that were locked deep down inside their heart were trying to escape. They held it back for as long as they could. Their hearts were racing a mile a minute as they were failing to keep their feelings locked down.
The lock that held those feelings broke. Feelings that were locked down deep inside when they first saw each other at Cloudsdale were finally released. However, before the feelings could be truly released, they had to confess to the other their feelings that they had since they had first seen each other.
"Hey, Rainbow," Swift whispered in Rainbow's ear.
"Yes Swift?" she whispered back.
"I-I need to say something," Swift told her, nervously. "But, it might take a while. Just warning you."
"I guess I can wait," Rainbow said with a smile, now listening to him with interest.
"Well, where should I start?" Swift asked, looking back at his past. "When I first saw you, there really wasn't any feelings that I noticed, but I felt something in my heart. Whenever I saw you, I felt my heartbeat speed up and I was so nervous. I didn't know why though. When you left, I was extremely sad but I never knew why. And now after, like 10 years, I see you again and we started this stupid rivalry between us."
"Yeah, it was pretty stupid, wasn't it?" Rainbow asked, blushing at the memory of them acting childish.
"Yes, it was," Swift agreed chuckling. "Anyways, I've been visiting you everyday to prove who's better. I asked myself why back then when I thought I was the best out of the both of us. Tonight, I've learned three things. First off, we are both equal in skill. Second, this rivalry needs to end. Third and most importantly, I-I'm in love with you Rainbow Dash!"
Rainbow wasn't able to say anything. In fact, she couldn't if she tried. She was being kissed by Swift...
