"What is home?"

Surprise party (2/2)

Aria's POV

The party is about to end,but I've seen something I hadn't seen in years: Adagio having fun,and just being herself without faking,just being her ol' good weird self, an egghead.

It was worth coming even feeling a little bad.

"Yo Aria,you're ok?You're looking a little pale..." Asked Dash.

"Yeah,yeah I am, just got a little headache,nothing to worry about." I answer her.

"You're sure?"

"Yeah Dash." I say and try to look to something else to get her attention. "Wanna race?I bet I can win you!"

"With one condition."


"If I win,which I'm pretty sure will happen cause I'm amazing, you'll tell me what is really happening."

"Gah...fine.But if I win I won't tell you anything."

"End of the block and back?" Dash asks me.

"Sounds good to me" I tell her as we start to walk towards the door.

"Were you two going?" AJ asks us as we start to go outside.

"I'm about to show Dash she's the second fastest around." I tell her. "Wanna watch?"

"Oh I gotta see this, come on y'all lets go see it."

We all filed out of the store me and Dash stood in the middle of the sidewalks wile the other girls stood on ether side.

"Down to the corner and back" I tell everyone. "Unless you think that's too far for you."

"That's not even far enough to count as a warmup, but since we don't want to stay here all night, it'll have to do."

"I know you can beat her Rainbow Dash!" Rarity cheered.

"You better kick her butt Aria." Adagio called out .

The two of us took our places, then Pinkie jumped in front of us:

"Wait! this doesn't feel right, feels like something is missing."

"Like what?" Sonata asked.

"Oh yeah I know! Wait right here." Then Pinkie zoomed off in a way that made me question if the girl was bound to the same law of physics and we were and came back just as fast with two checked flags and offered one to Sonata.

"If we're gonna do it we need to do it right."

"All the yes." Sonata says as she takes the flag as the to girls take there place in front of us and to the side.

"On your mark!" Pinkie shouted as she raised her flag.

"Get set!" Sonata Shouted.

"Go! "the both shouted as they wave their flag.

I runned as fast as I could,Dash behind me.

The race had finished.

"Woo!I won." I say cheering.

Dash looks at me angrily.

"I hate losing..."She says under her breath.

All the other girls laughed and cheered.

"Sleepover at my house?" Dash asked.

"Sure,just let me tell Adagio."I tell her.

Then I start to go to Adagio,who is preparing herself to go.

"Hey Dagi,going to sleep at Dash's today ,'kay?"

"Okay,if something happens call me,don't stay up too late,you have clothes in your bag? "

"Yes Adagio..."

"Good. Be back by lunch tomorrow and... have fun."

"'Kay bye Adagio,see you 'morrow,bye Sonata." I say and wave.

"Bye Ari!" Sonata shouts by the car window.

"Let's go?" Say Dash.

"Let's go."

We arrive at Dash's house,her room is big.
I'm not feeling very well,I just want to sleep right now,but if I do this Dash will get mistrustful.

"Wanna play videogames?" She aks me.

"Yeah."I answer.

"What game do you want to play?"

"Whatever you choose is fine.Since I know I'll beat you."

"Oh no you're not beating me."

She puts an game in her PS4.

Damn,I'm starting to get dizzy,I can't beat Dash if I can't see what I'm doing right.

"Wooo!I won I'm awesome!" Dash cheers.

"Shit..."I say,I can't believe I'm this way, Adagio and Sonata can't know it.

"Aria,are you sure you're okay?If you're not you can tell me,seriously." Dash says with an worried tone.

"I'm ok Dash,seriously. You don't need to worry about me." I say. "Also,I'm tired from the party...I'm going to sleep."

"'Kay."She shrugged her shoulders.


Rainbow Dash's POV

I can't sleep,Aria is snoring too loud,although it was fun to race with her today,I wanted to win, something is happening with Aria,she's not okay, and she's not wanting to say it, and by my own experience I can tell this never works out.

She even doesn't seen okay sleeping,she's making a pain face,but I know if I wake her up, she won't want to tell me what it is, because she knows I'll tell her sisters.

But maybe I could tell Adagio by Aria's phone.

I pick Aria's phone and through her contacts. and select Adagio's name.

It rings for a few seconds, then a tired voice answers:


"Sorry to wake you but..." I start only to be cut off.

"Dash it's two in the morning. What's wrong?"

"Well you see.."

"Did something happen to Aria?" she asked with panic in her voice.

"No, yes, I don't know maybe, Just something seems wrong with her. I know there is just she won't tell us."


"I don't know but I can tell she's in a lot of pain, and she told me she wasn't feeling well at the party."

"So you woke me up at 2 a.m. to tell me Aria is sore and doesn't feel good?"

"No I called you at 2 a.m. to tell you there's something wrong with your sister. I thought maybe you would care."

"Don't go there with me, you know I care about my sisters more then anything."

"Right, right I know sorry about that. It's just something's wrong with Aria...I can feel it. She's my best friend I don't want to lose her. "

"Dash you're sweet to care and she's lucky to have a friend like you who worries about her so much, But neither Aria, Sonata or myself have has so much as a cold since we got here. Our magic is keeping us healthy."

"But your magic is gone, who knows what that could be doing to you three. What if everything hits her all at once without the magic to stop it."

"Wouldn't it have happened to Sonata and me too?"

"Maybe it's just happening to her first?"

"To Aria? Listen to yourself do you really think Aria would be the first one out of the three of us to get sick? With everything Sonata does with Pinkie. And with all the stress I'm under. It's Aria that gets sick?"

"Well when you put it like that..its does sound kinda dumb."

"No it's not dumb you're worried about Aria and want to help her. I'm sure this is nothing to worry about, but if you want I can talk to her about it tomorrow."

"Oh no you don't have to, if you do she'll know I called you and I don't want her mad at me. I'll let you go back to sleep sorry I woke you."

"It's alright good night Dash."

"Good night."
