"I feel kinda bad about tricking mah brother and Miss Cheerilee this way," Apple Bloom said dejectedly as she watched her friend Sweetie Belle setting up the glasses of love potion on a picnic blanket.
"What's the problem?" Sweetie Belle asked, "we all agreed these two are perfect for one another," she waved off her friend's concern with a smile.
"Yeah! They just need a little nudge," Scootaloo added in with a smile, looking to see if she can spot the two aforementioned ponies.
"And what can make them happier than being together, right?" Sweetie Belle finished with an adorable squeak. Hearing her friends opinions, Apple Bloom debated whether or not this was truly right, before giving an affirmative nod.
"Right!" she gave in with a smile.
"Oh no," Scootaloo grunted to herself, "here comes trouble," she said pointing to two familiar earth ponies making their way towards them.
"Well well well, if it isn't the blank flanks!" Diamond Tiara mocked as she and Silver Spoon walked up to them, "What are you trying to get your cutie marks in now?" she asked staring at the mini picnic the CMC set up, "...seriously? Are you that desperate your trying to get cutie marks in drinking punch?" she asked with a raised eyebrow, causing Silver Spoon to giggle.
"No!" Scootaloo shouted out, "Sweetie Belle cancel tomorrow's plans," she whispered to her friend, who made the mental note to do just that.
"For yer information, we're setting up a love picnic fer Miss Cheerilee and mah big brother," Apple Bloom stated glaring at the pink filly, "and yer not invited!" she said causing the two rich girls to roll their eyes.
"Really, your trying to set up Miss Cheerilee with your hick of a brother, puhlease," Silver Spoon gagged, receiving a glare from Apple Bloom, "and you call this a love picnic? Snips and Snails could have done a better job!"
"Mah brother's not a hick!" Apple Bloom yelled out with a snarl.
"And this is totally romantic!" Scootaloo said venomously.
"Yeah, really romantic blank flank," Diamond Tiara said sarcastically, "you got two glasses of...whatever this is," she pointed out as she picked up one of the cups, scrutinizing it as she did so, "and...that's about it. Not very romantic if you ask me," she scoffed.
"Hey, don't touch that!" Apple Bloom yelled out, eyes wide in horror.
"Yeah!" Sweetie Belle stood next to her friend, "we worked hard to make that for Miss Cheerilee!" she squeaked, glaring all the while. Diamond Tiara merely smirked viciously at the complaint.
"You know," she started, swirling the contents of the drink, "I am awfully parched from talking to you blank flanks," she chuckled, smelling the contents of the drink, huh, this smells pretty good, she thought to herself.
"...Noooo," the three fillies panicked voices rang out.
"I sure could use a drink right about now," Diamond Tiara lifted the glass to her mouth, her friend chuckling all the while.
"No no no!" the CMC waved their hooves back and fourth, shaking their heads all the while.
"I guess this will have to do," Diamond Tiara sighed, drinking the contents of the cup.
"NOOOOO!" Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle shouted out. Apple Bloom however leaped in to action and slapped the cup away from DT, earning a glare from the pink filly.
"Hey, watch it yo-" she stopped, staring into Apple Bloom's eyes, "-u, you wonderful mare you," Diamond finished, with a goofy grin.
"Uh, DT, you okay?" Silver Spoon asked her friend, unable to elicit a response.
"Don't tell me," Scootaloo watched in horror as Diamond's eyes turned into hearts, "please don't tell me," she watched as Diamond Tiara breathed out a red heart.
"...I love you my little Appletini," Diamond tiara said as she nuzzled Apple Bloom's cheek affectionately, who quickly leaped away from the touch.
"DT WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?" Silver Spoon freaked out, gagging at the sight.
"...I think Diamond fell in love with Apple Bloom," Sweetie Belle explained, her face turning a light shade of green.
"I TOLD YOU NOT TO TELL ME!!!" Scootaloo screamed at her now cowering friend, causing Silver Spoon to turn around and glare at the two, grabbing Scootaloo by the shoulders as she did so.
"What did you do to her!? What was in that drink!?" she yelled out, shaking Scootaloo as she did so.
"Leeeeeeeeetttttggggoooooooofffffffffmmmmeeeeeeeeee!" the pegasus whined as she was shaken harshly.
"We may have given her a...love potion," Sweetie belle interrupted, smiling innocently with her hooves in front of her protectively.
"You did WHAT!?" Silver Spoon glared at the smiling filly, throwing the useless pegasus aside as she did so, "what would possess you to do something so moronic!"
"Well it was meant for Miss Cheerilee and Big McIntosh," she defended herself.
"Oh well that makes it oh so much better!" she stated sarcastically, grabbing Sweetie Belle by the shoulders, "please tell me you know how to fix this," she pleaded.
"Uh, well," Sweetie Belle thought for a minute. Not coming up with anything, she merely smiled back with a squee.
"Oh come on!" Silver Spoon threw Sweetie Belle away, burying her head into her hooves, "can this day get any worse?" she said to herself, almost breaking down into tears.
"Hey, where did Apple Bloom and Diamond Tiara go?" Scootaloo asked, looking around for the two missing mares.
"I WAS BEING SARCASTIC!" she yelled out as she kicked the second glass of potion, spilling it's contents everywhere.
