Author's Note: Would you look at that? A double update because I love you guys so much. Do you like the title? I like puns! Also, forget all that stuff I said about writer's block. I've gotten more ideas, many of them involving more characters. Who they are will be revealed later on. Now, on with the story(DON'T YOU DIE ON ME!).
A week had passed since Ice started working at the cafe. His training had been going fairly well and I had gone back to work. I think Dash is made about all the free time I was getting. Good thing she loves me.
Dash and I were getting ready to leave work and go out on our date to(guess where) Olive's Garden. What can I say? It's grown on us since our first date back before we were together.
As we got outside, I look up and see something. "Hey, what's that?" I ask.
Dash looks up to see what it is. "Oh no." she says.
The creature lands infront of us. A griffon? Shouldn't she be back in Hippogriff? Equestria's got pretty strict rules to letting griffons in.
She walks up to us. "Sup, Dash?" she says. Reminds me of Rainbow Dash in a lot of ways.
"What are you doing here, Gilda?!" Dash yells at the griffon. She knows her?
"You know her?" I ask Dash.
"Yeah! She was a jerk last time she was here!" she tells me. She turns back to Gilda. "I thought I told you that if you couldn't accept my friends, then you should get lost!"
"Look, I know what I did was uncool. I came back to make up for what I did, honest." Gilda says to us.
"Come on, Dash. Everyone deserves a second chance." I say, trying to help Gilda.
She looks at me and back to Gilda. "Okay, if you're really serious about this."
"I swear, Dash."
"Good, now that that's all settled, I'm Blue Breeze, Dash's coltfriend." I introduce myself.
"Wait, Dash is with a lo-I mean a lucky guy like you?" she asks nervously. Was she gonna call me a loser?
"Yeah, we were actually about to go on a date before you showed up."
"Oh, then, don't mind me. You two go have fun."
We leave Gilda and head on our way. We soon reach the restaraunt and order our food. Once it arrives, I decide to ask Dash what's been on my mind since Gilda showed up.
"So, what's the deal with Gilda?"
"Ugh, she's a jerk, that's the deal."
"Can you start at the beginning?"
"Well, we were friends in flight school. We did everything together. Pulled pranks, raced, and just had fun. I didn't see her for a few years after that. She came by to visit me in Ponyville last year. At first, I was happy to see her because I had missed her, but then I found out she had been acting like a jerk towards everypony else. Stealing, pulling mean spirited pranks, and bullying. She was especially mean to Pinkie, even after Pinkie tried throwing her a welcome party. I told her off after that and haven't seen her til now."
"Jeez." I reply. I knew griffons weren't as nice as ponies, but still. "She at least seems nice now."
"I guess, but I don't trust her. People don't change that easily."
We finish eating and go off on our own. 'Maybe I'll go see what Ice is up to.'
I head over to the cafe and see Ice. "Hey, Blue. The usual?"
"Okay, one capucino, coming up."
I go take a seat upfront and wait for my coffee. Ice shortly comes back and gives it to me.
I hear the front door open and look over to see Gilda.
She walks up to Ice to get an order. "Coffee, black." Ice gets her coffee and brings it back over. She takes a drink, only to put on a disgusted face and spit it out on Ice.
"What the hay?!" he shouts.
"What is this junk?!" Gilda shouts.
"Well, it tastes like garbage!"
"So you had to spit it all over me?!"
"You're lucky that's all I'm doing." she then notices his horns. "Ha! What's with the stupid horns? You a freak or something? You look like a midget buffalo with frostbite."
"What'd you call me?! Why, I oughtta..."
Before he can finish, Gilda cuts him off. "Pssh, whatever. I'm leaving this lame-o place."
She walks out with a smug attitude. I walk up to Ice, him steaming(never thought I'd say ice looks steaming).
"Who was that?" he angrily asks.
"Gilda, Dash's old friend. She said she came back to make amends for what she had done last time she was here. That's apparently not happening."
"Well, somepony better set her straight, or I will."
"Just chill out, Ice."
He glares at me. "You know I hate ice puns!"
"Okay, sorry. Don't worry, I'll fix this."
I leave the cafe in a hurry. I think I know somepony who may be able to help. Or, from what Dash said, may need helping.
I head over to Sugarcube Corner and hurry inside. "Pinkie! You here?!" I shout to nopony in particular. I hear some whimpers from up stairs. I walk up and see a horrifying sight: Pinkie Pie, only she's not. She was grey toned, and her mane and tail were straightened. I slowly wak up to her. "Pinkie?"
She gets up and looks at me, her eyes red and her face soaked from tears. The worst of it was that she had claw marks on her right cheek. "Breezy?" she says weakly.
I embrace her to try and comforst her. I let go and look her in the eye. "Pinkie, who did this to you?"
"What?!" I was afraid of this. "Do you know where she is now?"
"I-I think she s-said something about the p-park."
"Okay, you stay here. I've got a griffon to talk to."
I leave the building and make a dash for Ponyville Park. She's gonna pay. I get there and what should I find? Gilda picking on the CMC. How low will she go?
"Give us back our ball!" Scootaloo shouts at Gilda.
"Why? If you want it so badly, you should take it yourselves."
"Hey! Gilda!" I shout.
She looks around and grins. "Well, well, well. It's you, Dash's loser coltfriend. What do you want?"
"Instead of picking on innocent ponies, how about you try me?"
"Are you serious? You think you can take me?"
"I KNOW I can."
"Huh, yeah right!" she throws her claws towards me.
Just before they hit, I stop them with a hoof. "I recommend leaving, before you get hurt. I don't care if you're a girl. Hurt my friends, and all bets are off."
I throw a punch and hit her in the face, knocking her over.
Just then, everypony else except Pinkie shows up. "Blue!"
I look back. "Dash?"
"What are you doing?!"
"Fixing a prolem. Gilda has done nothing but bad things since she got here."
"It's true." Ice speaks up. "She insulted me and spit coffee on me."
"Yeah, and she scratched Pinkie." I tell her.
As Gilda tries to get up, Dash walks up inbetween us. She stares Gilda down. "I knew you could never change." she says with venim. "Leave, and never come back!"
Gilda gets up and lunges in the air. "Fine! You ponies are a bunch of lame-os anyway!"
She takes off and leaves everypony in silence. Dash walks up to me and puts her head on my sholder. "I'm so proud of you." she whispers.
Everypony starts cheering for me, even pinkie shows up, back to her energetic self once again. Good thing to. She was creeping me out before.
I hope we never see her again.
