WARNING, SHORT CHAPTER!
-The following morning-
Thunder Flash rested peacefully on his bed, dreaming about nothing at all.
After a couple of minutes, he was awoken by the front door opening. As he looked around, taking in his surroundings, he noticed his fever was gone.
“Oh yeah, that’s just great. I have a fever for a whopping twenty-four hours, and it’s right in the middle of the party! What luck.” He exclaimed to himself.
After his outburst, Rainbow walked in the room and closed the door behind her.
“Hi gorgeous. How was the party?” He asked.
Rainbow chuckled. “Please don’t call me gorgeous.”
“Oh, okay then. Hi ugly. How was the party?” He repeated.
Rainbow doubled over laughing. “That’s not what I meant!”
“Anyway, how did the party go?”
Rainbow put a hoof up to her chin. “You know, I don’t remember. There was a lot of drinking, and I spent a lot of time hanging over the toilet……and then Soarin walked in, and then…………holy crap…” She stammered.
“What, what is it?”
“Uh…uh………uh…” Rainbow didn’t know what to say. There’s no way she could have……oh no.
“Why are you so nervous? And another thing, how come you were gone the entire night?” Flash asked curiously.
Rainbow tried to keep calm, or else Flash would pick up on it. He’s excellent at picking up symptoms.
“You know, I might remember later, so I’ll tell you then. Right now, I have to take a shower.”
Flash just shrugged and went back to sleep.
In the shower, Rainbow’s thoughts were running wild.
“There’s no way…there’s absolutely no way…could I really have…………slept with Soarin? No, it was a dream. I was really drunk, it had to be a hallucination. I wouldn’t do that! Would I?”
Rainbow accidentally let loose a hysteric nervous giggle, which could be heard outside the bathroom.
“Okay, just calm down…calm down…”
Now that she thought back, was he wearing any protection that night? No. Was she consuming any protection? No.
Great, now I’m running the risk of…being a double-mother!
The guilt and nervousness was eating her alive. She had to tell Flash! But if she did…the consequences would be disastrous.
After about ten minutes, Rainbow opened the door, and left the shower.
Flash was still asleep, so she turned out the hallway and headed for the living room. There she found Blaze, waiting for her on the couch.
“What were you talking about in there?” He asked.
“In the shower. The wall is very thin between the shower and my room, so I could hear the whole thing.”
“Dang it, you have a serious problem with eavesdropping, young colt.” She scolded.
“But you sounded really nervous in there. What’s wrong?” He asked curiously.
“Believe me, you’re the last one that should know.” Rainbow responded.
“Is it another stallion? Did you find somepony other than dad?”
Rainbow Dash was outraged. “Hell, no! It was just a drunken mistake!” She yelled loudly at him.
There was some silence. “So it is someone else?”
Rainbow sighed heavily. “No, it’s not. Could you please stop asking questions?”
Blaze just shrugged, and trotted off to his room.
Soon after he left, Flash walked in. He leaned up against the wall, and gave her a stern stare.
“What was that all about?” He asked, expressionless.
Rainbow stammered. “I…I…”
Flash interrupted. “What was this so called, ‘drunken mistake’ of yours?”
Busted. It was time for Flash’s excellent forensic science to kick in.
“Is that why you were gone the whole night?” He asked, still emotionless.
Rainbow was just the opposite of emotionless. A tear rolled down her cheek as she said, “If it helps, I was incredibly drunk that night, and didn’t know what I was doing.”
“Yes, but when you were making that decision, something had to of told you it was wrong. Something had to of tried to stop you. You’re the Element of Loyalty.” He replied.
Rainbow had never been this emotionally weak before. She was currently weaker than Fluttershy in that field.
Rainbow didn’t speak. Flash did. “There’s one more question that needs to be answered.” He said sternly and calmly.
Without saying another word, he walked to the front door, and flew away.
Rainbow was left to sit in half-hysteria for twenty minutes before Flash returned, carrying something.
Flash walked around to where Rainbow sat on the couch, and handed it to her. It was a pregnancy-tester.
“Flash, I really don’t think this is necessary.” Rainbow said.
“Shh…just go in the bathroom, and try it.” He responded.
Rainbow did as she was told.
A minute later, she returned, carrying the tester. She handed it to him.
Flash turned it around in his hoof, and stared down at the display.
The test result yielded positive.
