We finally made it back to my (slightly large) house. I stopped the car, turning off my tunes in the process. I look over to my new daughter, Sunset Shimmer, snoring softly in her seat. This is too precious!
I took a photo of her, adoring her slumber in all of its glory. I got out of the car, scooping Sunset in my arms and taking her inside. I made it in the house, finding a room that will soon be hers. I placed her in bed, taking her oversized boots off. That leather jacket probably isn't the best to sleep in either, I should remove that too. After doing that, I went back out to the car to grab Sunset's stuff. I'm just too excited at the aspect of having a daughter! Think of all the stuff I can do with her!
Although, I should focus on getting her stuff in her room. I know there's going to be a weird phase of adjustment, but I'll make this work! Maybe...
Finally getting her stuff, I went back inside and into Sunset's room. Placing the supplies down, I felt satisfied. Picking Sunset up was easier than I expected, but maybe there's a catch to all of this. It wouldn't surprise me this 'demon' of hers isn't completely gone. I'll just have to ready for it.
Getting out of my thoughts, I exited Sunset's new room and decided to get out of this dress. Scrummaging through my drawer, I found some jean shorts. Nice, I could use something a bit more casual. I'm finally satisfied...
I plop down on the couch, trying to find something to entertain me. I flick through the channels, yet couldn't find anything that's not trash. Fine, I'll grab my acoustic guitar instead. Running my figures through the strings, I feel ready to play.
I finished playing. It feels nice to reminisce about simpler times, especially about my old friends. I look up from guitar to find Sunset staring at me. "I didn't know you played guitar..."
I gave her a smile and said; "Hey, sleepyhead. But to answer your question - yes - I do play acoustic and electric guitar." Her oversized circles under eyes were gone - finally. "Did you have a good nap, sleepyhead?" My question was answered with a nod. Sunset walked over to me, sitting on the coach. She fiddled with her fingers, trying to start some sort of a conversation.
"So - mom - I have these group of friends at my school I made not too long ago. I've been having a lot of problems connecting to them, like being accepted by them. Do you think you can help me?"
First, she surprises me with calling me mom - Now, she's asking for my help. I think Celestia found a good one.
"Have you tried talking about your feelings with your group?" I asked.
"I don't think I've tried doing that..."
I tapped my fluffy chin. Great Scott! I have an idea!
"How about you invite them over. 'Sides, school usually wraps up around this time."
"Really? You don't have to do that." You foolish girl! Fixing my daughter's friendships is what I'm going to do! No one is stopping this metaphorical train.
"I'll order a crap ton of pizza." I offered.
The second car ride of the day. Sunset apparently texted all of her friends to meet her in the parking lot after school, which is rather convenient. I've never been one for texting, neither my dad. We care more about playing videos games instead. Y'know, I really like the small bond Sunset and I currently have. I mean, we haven't known each other for very long, but I like where this is going.
We finally found a parking spot. I saw a group of five girls, which I could only assume are the girls. It's lucky I have a van...
"You want me to come out with you, Sunset?" I asked.
"I think it would be a good idea to introduce my new mom."
"Then, it's settled."
Sunset and I walked out...
Now confusion insues...
