Anon A Miss: That's Enough

Leave Her Alone

Sunset Shimmer wondered how things could go downhill for her fast. She thought she had earned everyone’s trust after helping save the school from the Dazzlings but it appeared it was all too easy for recent events to fade in people’s minds. Someone on MyStable under the username ‘Anon A Miss’ was posting people’s secrets and the blame had fell on her.

Especially since a secret of Applejack that had been posted, just after she had admitted it to her friends and they had somehow gotten hold of the photos of a sleepover from her phone which had gotten posted; even her friends believed it was her and deserted her.

It seemed like there was no one for her left in this world. Perhaps she should just go back to Equestria.

She was walking around the street with her hood up trying to avoid anyone that was from Canterlot High, she soon came across the Sweet Shoppe and decided to go in. She thought she might as well sit down and hide here. She sat down at a table and just had her head down.

About five minutes later she heard a cough and was surprised to see Mr and Mrs Cake the owners of the shop smiling at her, “Anything you want to order Sunset or are you just going to sit there?” Mrs Cake asked, her and her husband looking concerned despite their smiles.

Sunset sighed and figured she might as well drown her sorrows out on something sweet, she quickly took out a five dollar bill and passed it to them muttering softly “just give me whatever this will pay for and this troublemaker will be out of your hair soon...”

She looked back down and did not notice Mr and Mrs Cake looking at eachother in concern, they then whispered eachother and then went back to the counter and Mr Cake going to take care of an order for Sunset.

After a few minutes (not that Sunset was counting) Mr Cake returned and put something down, Sunset looked up and blinked at the ice cream sundae and milkshake that she was now given. “I am certain that this costs more than the five bucks....” Sunset told Mr Cake looking up in confusion and shock.

Mr Cake smiled at her and told her “well consider this a discount for girls who are down on the dumps for something not their fault.” Sunset blinked and was left speechless. Mr Cake sighed and told her softly “I understand the students at your school have been blaming you for something, but from what me and my wife have seen of you lately. You don’t look or act like you were up to something like you did previously or are guilty at something you did. We’re good at reading people and we are confident that you are being a victim in whatever situation this is. In this time, consider this a safe haven for you Sunset.”

Sunset did not know what to say but managed to mouth a quick “Thank you...” Mr Cake just smiled as he left and from the counter Mrs Cake waved in her direction. Sunset managed to give the first real smile that she had in quite a while.

She then tucked into her sundae and thought things seemed to be looking up now, however after she finished the sundae it seems things went down again......

“What in the hay are you doing here?” shouted a voice and Sunset turned to see that in front of her table was her five ‘friends’ who were glaring openly at her. “Did you think you would try and manipulate us by trying to speak to us at our local hangout?” Applejack asked with a glare as Sunset shook her head.

“I am here as a customer Applejack, I came by and got in........” Sunset responded only to be interrupted by Pinkie Pie shouting at her.

“This is supposed to be the happiest and most sweet place in the world! I bet you came here to put everyone off their delicious treats!” Pinkie had shouted making Sunset look at her flabbergasted. There were mutterings from the assembled Canterlot High students who were there.

“Pinkie, that’s ridiculous! Ignoring what you think I have done, do you think I would try to ruin’s everyone’s time just by showing up?” Sunset asked incredulously, even by the most bizarre standards of Pinkie Pie logic that accusation made absolutely no sense.

“Don’t talk to our friend like that Sunset, I am surprised you want to show your face around here again! Here is what you should do with this.” Rainbow Dash shouted taking Sunset’s milkshake and pouring it over Sunset’s head.

They caused her friends to show surprise but the Canterlot Students were laughing. “Rainbow Dash, that was a waste of a good milkshake!” Pinkie commented as Sunset stood open mouthed.

Rainbow Dash smirked mockingly at Sunset and told her “now you better skedaddle or else.....”

“RAINBOW DASH!!!” a twin shout came over them and the five turned around saw Mr and Mrs Cake had walked over and was now glaring at the five furiously. “You five can leave right now!” Mr Cake snapped pointing to the door shocking the five who never saw the married couple even the slightest bit of angry before.

“As for you Rainbow Dash, you can consider yourself unwelcome here. For your little stunt you have earned a ban from our premises for an entire week!” Mrs Cake told Rainbow Dash angrily who was spluttering some sort of response.

Mr Cake then faced the restaurant and shouted “let me make this clear, when you are in our shop keep your comments about Ms Sunset to yourself. There will be no tolerating anyone who wants to confront any customers here; there will be serious trouble for anyone who would want to imitate what Rainbow Dash again. The fact that this is a firs time offense in the shop is the only reason I am being as lenient as I am!”

This caused the muttering Canterlot High Students to go back to their seats. The Cakes then pointed back to the door to the five. “But Mr and Mrs Cake.......” Pinkie started only for their angry stares to become even harder.

Pinkie dejectedly walked to the door followed by her friends who were not certain at what happened but there were glares at a nervous looking Rainbow Dash. “I can’t believe you done that Rainbow Dash; you would think you could get away with doing that!” Rarity quietly told her not even wanting to turn around and glare at Sunset, to risk even further punishment.

Sunset had her mouth wide open as the Cakes went to look at Sunset in concern, “We will find something to clean you up Sunset, plus giving you your money back as well as a replacement milkshake. We meant what we said about this being a safe haven for you if you need it Sunset....” Mr Cake told Sunset softly.

As the Cakes hurriedly went to get some towels Sunset managed to smile despite the milkshake spilled on her, it seems like there were some on her side here after all.
