"What is home?"

Aria's POV

When me and Sonata started to go out,and Adagio saw we wasn't changing our minds,she decided to go with us.

"Okay,okay, just get in the car you two,now. But if they hate us don't come whining to me." She said.

It was a really quiet ride,except for Sonata humming a song that I didn't knew all the time.

When we entered Sugar cube Corner, soon we heard an excited female voice shout:

"SONNY RIGHT HERE!"

It was the pink one.(or how me and Adagio like to say the crazy one.)

Sonata started to run, and hug her.

"PINKIE!" She shouted excitedly.

Adagio cleared her throat to call their attention.

"Oh girls,these are my sisters: Aria and Adagio." Sonata presented us.

The skittle hair one looked at us like she was trying to figure out just what our angle was. Her magenta eyes trying to stare in to our souls.

Adagio did the same thing. It was clear she didn't trust her any more then she trusted us.

Sonata just stared. Her eyes darting from Adagio and the rainbow haired woman.

It was thankfully broken when Sunset Shimmer cleared her throat and said:

"Sooo...Why won't you take a seat."

We took a seat and all of us stayed quiet.

Not wanting to be the first one to speak until at last Sunset spoke up again.

"U-hurm, so what do you like to do girls?" She asked.

"Listen to music."I said.

"Sing." Adagio said.

"That's great..." Rainbow Dash (I think that's her name) said her voice dripping with sarcasm.

The mood in there was so uncomfortable.

Adagio got up and made the gesture for me to come.

"If you excuse us girls. You stay here Sonata we'll be right back."

We went into the side of the store.

"This was a bad idea,Aria."

"No it wasn't."

"They don't trust us."

"Is just a matter of time 'till they trust us.Besides, Sonata was right, what choice do we have to be stuck here isolated,alone forever huh? Is that what you want."

Adagio looked like I had just slapped her across the face.

When next she spoke it sounded like she was having trouble keeping her rage in check:

"Aria Blaze Dazzle Dusk."

"Don't call me by my full name."

"Look,just make sure to come home soon with Sonata,and no guitar for you for a week and 2 weeks of Sonata's music,and I don't want to hear you whine about it now, I'm going home."

"Why?"

"I don't want trouble."

Adagio is so paranoid,my god.

"Okay,so I guess I'll see you at home." I tell her with that Adagio storms out.

I looked across the store and sighed and made a gesture to Sonata to come.

"Sonata,Adagio went home."

"Ooh..."Sonata looked down."But you're staying right Ari?"

"Uuuuh of course."

It's just impossible to say no to Sonata,It would crush her if I say no.

"Yay!" She hugged me.

I hugged her back.

I would do anything for my ditsy little taco sister. I know deep down Adagio would too, she is just too stubborn sometimes.

"Soooo..." Sonata says as she breaks our hug. "How about you come back over to the table so I can introduce you to the girls?"

She flashes a bright smile.

"Sure." I tell her smiling myself. "That's why I'm here."

We headed back to the table and sat down.

"Ari this is Pinkie Pie, Applejack, Rarity,Sunset Shimmer, Fluttershy, and the one on the end is Rainbow Dash."

They all give me a greeting except Rainbow Dash who just sighed in contempt. I was about to say something to her about it, when a tray was placed on the table by and older woman.

"I thought you girls might like some hot coco while you talk."

"Thanks Mrs C!" The girls told her and they took a cup.

"Oh Mrs. C." Sonata cut in. "This is my sister Aria. I brought her so she can be friends with the others too."

"It's good to meet you dear, if you need anything just holler alright?"

"Likewise." I tell her as I reach for a cup.

"So wasn't there another one of you last time we met?" I ask as I take a sip. "I remember there
being seven in your band."

"You mean Twilight?She's not here right now she had to go back home. Something important came up." Sunset says with a slight hint of nervousness in her voice.

"What? Her butt had to polish a throne?"I snark at her. "Or did Celestia need her to do more of her dirty work for her?"

Sunset began to fidget a bit:

"Wha-what do you mean?"

"It's ok, I told Ari about Twily being a princess" Sonata tells her.

"HOW CAN YOU HAVE TOLD HER THAT?!" Rainbow Dash shouts at Sonata.

"Now Rainbow, calm down. Please?"Fluttershy asks her as she places a hand on her shoulder.

"NO FLUTTERSHY, SHE JUST TOLD ONE OF OUR WORSE ENEMIES OUR FRIEND WAS AN ALIEN FROM ANOTHER WORLD!"

"No, I told my sisters, I thought if we're gonna be.." Sonata started only to be cut off.

"YOU TOLD BOTH OF THEM!" Rainbow continued."NOW THEY BOTH KNOW THIS IS JUST GREAT!"

"I..I thought it would be ok" Sonata started sounding on the verge of tears. "We we're from Equestria too ,so-so is Sunny."

Sonata went on now barely under control.

"I... I just." That was as far as she got before she broke down completely. "I-I'm sorry I'm so so sorry."

When I saw that there was a tug of war in my mind. Part of me wanted to hit Rainbow Dash a hard as I could and just watch the blood fly, then keep hitting her till someone managed to pull me off her. The other part of me wanted of comfort my sister, but before I could do either Pinkie had moved around the table and pulled Sonata in to a tight hug.

"Shhhh don't cry Sonny it's alright don't cry." She told Sonata in soft voice as she rubbed her back.

"Yeah, Sugarcube you didn't do anything wrong." Applejack added. "Shoot I've told Apple Bloom and Big Mac."

Rarity locked Rainbow Dash with an icy stare.

"That was uncalled Dash, look what you've done to the poor girl. All she wants is us to be friends with her and her sisters and this is how you treat her? What's wrong with you?"

Rainbow stood up:

"HOW CAN YOU BE TAKING HER SIDE ON THIS?! THEY TRIED TO DESTROY US, THEY'RE MONSTERS!!"

At that Sunset stood up and got in her face.

"SO AM I! " She shouted back at Dash. "OR HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN I ENSLAVED THE SCHOOL IN AN ATTEMPT TO TAKE OVER EQUESTRIA?THE ONLY REASON I DIDN'T IS BECAUSE TWILIGHT SAVE YOU ALL!"

"YOU YOU'RE DIFFERENT." Dash shouted back

"WHY? JUST BECAUSE TWILIGHT SAID SO?! IF THAT THE ONLY REASON YOU'RE FRIENDS WITH ME DASH?! IS IT JUST BECAUSE TWILIGHT TOLD YOU I WAS GOOD NOW?!"

Dash was take aback by that:

"No it's not that. Th-they... whi-while you only.. there but you."

Try as she might Dash couldn't find an argument.

She just slumped in her chair in defeat.

After the shouting match I saw Sonata was calming down.

"I think it's time we go."I tell her.

"Yeah" She says. "It's for the best".

As we got up to leave Sunset tells us:

"I'll give you girls a ride home."

We make our way to Sunset's car, Sonata sat in the back seat I sit up front with Sunset.

After a few minutes of silence Sunset breaks it:

"I'm sorry about how Dash acted back there. What she did was uncalled for."

"It's not your fault". I tell her. "She's not the first person to hate us, won't be the last. But she's lucky Adagio wasn't here she not as forgiving as I am."

"What do you mean?"

I see Sonata in the has fallen asleep her head resting against the window. I gesture to the backseat.

"She's her baby sister and Adagio won't let anything happen to her. It's been like that ever since we've been here."

"How long have you been here?"

I think for a moment:

"About fifteen hundred years."

"No way....wait you're those sirens? The ones Starswirl banished?"

"You've heard of us?"

"Yeah it's an old legend. How is that possible, how can you still be alive?"

"You're a unicorn and you're asking me that?"

"You magic of course...but it's gone now."

"Gone forever." I tell her,a bit of melancholy in my voice.

"So does that mean you'll..you'll?" She can't quite get the last word out.

"Die?" I finish for her."Most likely,there's nothing keeping us from aging now."

"I.. I can talk to Twilight we can figure something out we can save you and your sisters."We pull up to our house.

"I doubt it." I tell her "Siren magic is different from your pony magic, not even an alicorn can use it, but by all it's worth try."
