"Here it is!" Pinkie Pie picked up the box and removed the plastic game board. She set it on the table, and handed out the game pieces. Pinkie and Rainbow Dash intensely glared at the grids as they carefully arranged the miniature plastic boats. When both were ready, they began to guess. Pinkie had the first guess, shouting, "A1!" Dash, clearly frustrated, replied, "Hit." Pinkie was ecstatic as she gloated, "How'd I know?" Dash mumbled to herself, and took her turn. "C5", she randomly guessed. Pinkie relpied, "Nope!" Dash could barely contain her anger. Pinkie wasted no time. "B1!" Dash grumbled, "There goes my patrol boat", and hurled the gray piece of plastic as hard as she could.
It sailed about two feet before hitting Pinkie squarely in the forehead. "OW!", the pink pony exclaimed. "Dashie, why'd you do that!?" Realizing that she'd hurt her friend, Dash got right to apologizing. "Pinkie, I'm so sorry!" But Pinkie wouldn't have any of it. "I THOUGHT YOU WERE MY FRIEND!" she shouted as she started to sob. Dash was apologetic, but she had know way of seeing the turmoil inside Pinkie's mind. Pinkie's mind raced as she thought, If Dashie isn't my friend anymore then maybe no one is my friend and if no one is my friend then I have no one to invite to parties and if I can't throw parties I can't have fun and if I can't have fun...
Pinkie's hair flattened out, and she took on a maniacal expression. Dash groaned. She remembered what happened the last time this happened. If only she hadn't thrown the game piece... But it was too late. Pinkie tore all the pieces from her board and threw them all at Dash. "How do YOU like it?" Dash was barely able to dodge the projectiles. She hadn't realized how hard Pinkie could throw. Dash bolted out and started flying. Pinkie started flinging Dash's ships until she ran out, and bolted after Dash. Pinkie kept up surprisingly well, and chased Dash right out the door.
Dash soared up to a nearby cloud, and aimed a lightning bolt at Pinkie. A direct hit. Despite this, Pinkie was unfazed. Frantically, Dash searched for another way to keep Pinkie at bay. Thinking quickly, she made a hairpin turn, and executed a Sonic Rainboom just as she made contact with Pinkie. The sheer force of the impact sent Pinkie hurtling through the sky, and knocked her unconscious. Dash felt terrible for what she'd done, but knew she'd have to get away quickly. "I knew we should've played Connect Four instead," she mumbled to herself as she fled to Cloudsdale to hide.
