Apple Bloom's Disastrous Hearts and Hooves Day

by Mattricole


"And when that timberwolf attacked her from behind, Diamond side stepped and did one o' dem backwards punch thingy's, and it was amazing!" Apple Bloom squealed as she waved her hooves in the air, eliciting a giggle from Sweetie Belle and an eye roll from Scootaloo. It had been two days since the incident with the timberwolves, and she was unfortunately still stuck in the hospital. The room she was in smelled of disinfectant, much different than the smell of the farm she had grown so accustomed too. She was forbidden to leave her bed and the food was just horrible! The only saving grace was her friends and family visiting her everyday. Well, with Applejack it felt more like coming over to nag and threaten to ground her then visit but it was still nice.

However, Diamond Tiara had yet to visit. On one hoof it was nice, after all, the only reason she saved her was because of the love potion, and by now that had probably worn off by now. Confronting her about it now would just be embarrass! But on the other hoof, she desperately wanted to see her. Even if it was only because of the love potion, Diamond saved her life, and Apple Bloom wanted to thank her properly. However she was interrupted from her thoughts by a rather loud grunt from Scootaloo.

"Oh come on Apple Bloom! You honestly want us to believe that stuck up princess took on twenty timberwolves on her own, blinded by sand thrown into her eyes, surrounded by fire, all the while carrying you bridal style, with her bare hooves!? Horse apples!" Scootaloo proclaimed as she slammed her hooves onto the bed, giving her friend a confused glare. After only a few minutes, Apple Bloom sighed dejectedly.

"Okay fine, ah may have exaggerated a little bit," she relented, causing Scootaloo to once again groan into her hooves, while Sweetie Belle giggled some more.

"Well, I think it's cute!" Sweetie Belle admitted, nearly causing Scootaloo a heart attack.

"Cute!?" Scootaloo repeated her friend, "how is that cute!?" she glared at Sweetie Belle, who groaned with a facehoof.

"How is it not cute!?" Sweetie Belle argued back, earning questioning glances from both Apple Bloom and Scootaloo, "one's a apple farmer, the other the daughter of the richest stallion in Ponyville. One is a country hick-"

"Hey!" Apple Bloom yelled indignantly, though she was ignored.

"-the other, regal and sophisticated. Two different mares, from two different worlds. And yet," she trailed off, a lone tear drifting down her cheek, "one true love," she spoke softly, barely above a whisper. "See? Cute!" she squeaked happily, starring at Scootaloo expectantly.

"...Ewwww" Scootaloo gagged, earning a glare from Sweetie Belle.

"It's not gross, it's romantic!" she growled as she shoved Scootaloo.

"Hey, watch it!" Scootaloo reprimanded as she pushed back.

"No, you watch it you cad!" Sweetie Belle insulted, causing Scootaloo's glare to harden. She didn't know what a "cad" was, but she knew it was meant as an insult.

"Squeaky toy!"

"Stupid chicken!"

"Talentless unicorn!"

"Dodo bird!" Sweetie Belle yelled out, earning a growl from Scootaloo, who then shoved Sweetie Belle once again.

"BLANK FLANK!" as soon as the words left her mouth, she quickly covered it with her hooves, but the damage was already done. Sweetie Belle continued to glare at Scootaloo, sniffling just a little bit.

"You're a blank flank too," she replied with a huff.

Meanwhile Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon was currently enjoying their afternoon over a nice cup of milkshakes at Ponyville's best ice cream shop. Well, Silver Spoon was trying to enjoy her day. Ever since the incident with the timberwolves, Diamond Tiara had been eerily quiet, and whenever Diamond Tiara was quiet, she knew something was wrong.

"Hey DT," Silver Spoon said while nudging her friend, getting a grunt in return, "are you okay?" at that Diamond Tiara sighed tiredly, taking a sip from her milkshake before answering.

"I'm fine," she replied and took another sip. Silver Spoon however was unconvinced, it was clear Diamond Tiara was not fine. And she had a pretty good idea what this was about.

"It's about Apple Bloom isn't it?" as soon as she asked Diamond Tiara spat out her milkshake all over the table, gross.

"W-what are you talking about!?" Diamond Tiara yelled, "why would I care if Apple Bloom is hurt or not!? I mean, she tricked me into drinking that love potion-"

"That was completely your fault and you know it," Silver Spoon interrupted, earning a growl from Diamond Tiara, "and didn't it wear of by the time you found her in the-"

"NO IT DIDN'T!" Diamond Tiara yelled out as she slammed her hoof against the table, causing a rather large crack on the table. Silver Spoon couldn't help but sigh as she starred at the crack.

I am so gonna have to pay for that aren't I? she thought ruefully. This was exactly why she was against Diamond Tiara learning kung fu lessons from Buck Norris, she had the temper of a five year old.

"But didn't you say it took about an hour to find her?" Silver Spoon pressed on, earning a groan from her friend.

"I said it felt like hours-"

"And weren't you bragging the next day how you saved Apple Bloom from 300 armed timberwolves and then proceeded to make out with her on top of a volcano?" she asked with a smirk, receiving a death glare from her angry friend.

"It was four hundred and fifty," Diamond Tiara corrected.

"Of course it was," Silver Spoon replied as she rolled her eyes. That number was always bigger the more times she bragged about it, "my point is, clearly that love potion isn't the only reason you have feelings for Apple Bloom, so all in all, you need to talk to her about this," Silver Spoon finished. However, Diamond Tiara remained sitting, taking another sip from her milkshake, "NOW!" the sudden yell caused Diamond to fall out of her seat.

"Okay, okay, geez!" Diamond Tiara said as she got up and headed towards the door. But before leaving she turned to her friend with a smile, "thanks Silver," and promptly left the ice cream shop. Watching her friend leave, Silver Spoon sighed as she lifted her milkshake, taking a sip from the straw and enjoying her chocolate milkshake. However one thought wouldn't leave her mind.

Am I the only straight pony in this lesbian infested town?

Apple Bloom relaxed in her bed, sighing in content. Her two friends had finally left after doing nothing but arguing. However, after only a few seconds she started to miss her friends. With those two around, it was somewhat easier to not think of Diamond Tiara: the way she moved, the way she held her, the way she kissed her, the way she would stare at her while she she laid in bed, an aggravated look as she tapped her hoof impatiently as she waited for for her to-

"Diamond Tiara!?" Apple Bloom sat up, blushing as she starred at Diamond, who took a quick step back because of the sudden shout, "what are ya'll doing here!?" however, Diamond tiara dismissed her question, instead taking time to pick at her ear, softly growling in annoyance.

"I'm surprised you don't have a cutie mark in shouting," she said with a glare, still picking at her ear, "I think you busted one of my eardrums," she grumbled as she took a ceat on one of the chairs next to Apple Bloom's bed. The two sat in silence, avoiding eye contact, Apple Bloom looked around the room, at nothing in particular, while Diamond Tiara studied her hoof, as if checking for any imperfections from a hooficure she had earlier that day.

"So, how's the leg?" Diamond Tiara asked, catching Apple Bloom's attention.

"Oh, well, the doctor said it should be fine, and ah'll be able to leave tomorrow," Apple Bloom replied, and went back to looking around the white room. Diamond Tiara sighed to herself as she laid her head on the bed.

"Oh, I see, that's good," Diamond Tiara replied nodding, and went back to admiring her hooves.

"Good?" Apple Bloom muttered to herself, tilting her head with a smile as she studied Diamond Tiara. Did she actually miss her? Apple Bloom bit her lip, attempting to stop herself from squealing in delight, "d-did ya'll...miss me?" she asked, her smile reaching her ears, her heart beating like a drum at this point.

"Well, of course!" Diamond replied, causing Apple Bloom's heart to skyrocket, "after all, who else am I going to call "blank flank"?" and just as quickly plummeted like a rock. Her smile was quickly replaced with a scowl.

"Oh," Apple Bloom glared as she turned her back on Diamond Tiara, "ah see how it is," she grumbled to herself, causing Diamond to giggle, ah shoulda know it was too good to be true she thought sadly as she continued to glare at the wall.

"Apple Bloom?" she ignored Diamond Tiara, scoffing as she refused to turn around, "Apple Bloooooo-" Diamond Tiara sang as she tapped the back of her head, "ooooooooooooooo-" Apple Bloom grind her teeth as she tried to ignore her crush, "ooooooooo-" she quickly turned around with a glare, at the happy smile that adorned Diamond Tiara's face who finally stopped.

"What, ya'll got another insul-" and at that moment, Diamond Tiara captured her lips with her own, kissing her for a second time. It ended just as quickly as it started, Diamond quickly pulling back with a grin as Apple Bloom attempted to capture her lips.

"Sorry, you're just too cute when mad," she said with a grin, giggling as Apple Bloom's face now resembled her family's name sake.

"Y-ya'll gotta stop doing that," she whined, eliciting a scoff from Diamond Tiara.

"Oh please, and miss that cute reaction of yours? No way," she said while shaking her head. She then got up and went to the door, opening it and stayed by the opening, "and judging from your reaction, you don't want me to stop either," she ducked as a pillow was suddenly thrown at her head.

"Just go!" Apple Bloom yelled as she covered herself with her blanket, growling to herself. After a few seconds she heard her door close, followed by soft hoof steps getting closer to herself.

"Hey, Apple Bloom," she heard Diamond whisper, as she felt her jabbing her rib with her hoof.

"What?" she growled back, refusing to lift her blankets.

"What time do you want me to pick you up tomorrow?" her voice sounded smug, as if she won there little duel. Apple Bloom considered not answering, and decided to just ignore the other pony, "so I'm guessing five o' clock?" she refused to answer, "five o' clock it is, see you then!" Diamond Tiara said as she began walking away.

Just ignore her Apple Bloom thought to herself as she heard Diamond Tiara walking away, just ignore her she thought to herself as she heard Diamond Tiara open the door, Just ignore...AH CAN'T!!!

"Wait!" Apple Bloom yelled out, throwing her sheets off of her as she starred desperately at the door, with Diamond waiting there patiently, "h-how about we go to the ice cream shop?" she asked with a timid smile, causing Diamond Tiara to giggle.

"Alright, it's a date," she said with a smile as she slowly closed the door behind her, "goodbye, my little appletini," Apple Bloom heard her say just before the door closed, causing her to smile. She quickly laid back in bed with a sigh, knowing if she was able to sleep that night, it would be about her date tomorrow, because she knew in her heart everything was going to be alright.

Rarity hummed to herself as she examined her newly finished dress. It was a lovely dress, with a nice rustic feel to it, looking almost identical to Applejack's Gala dress from a few months ago. A few days ago Applejack wanted Rarity to make a dress for her, because she was going to some farmer's convention or something, Rarity didn't particularly care, after all, it was bound to be dirty. But it mattered not, her best friend wanted a rustic feeling dress and she was going to do it for her! For she was Rarity! Element of Generosity, and friend to all living creatures in need of fashion advice!

Rarity smiled at her work, it really was one of her better dresses, much more durable, the only thing she didn't like was that it wasn't fabulous, it was sorely lacking in gems, but hey, if Applejack liked it it was good enough for her.

"Speaking of Applejack, she should be here any minute," she said to herself as she entered her kitchen, "I'll have a quick drink before she arrives, all that hard work has me quite parched," she said as she opened her fridge, not looking for anything in particular, when she came across a glass jug of...something.

"Oh my, what's this?" she asked herself as she levitated the jug to her, "it looks delicious," she said to herself as she sniffed the strange liquid, "and it smells delicious too," well, if it looked and smelled delicious, how bad could it be? Levitating a glass towards her, she poured herself a glass, and returned the jug back to the fridge, "oh I just hope Sweetie Belle didn't make this," she grumbled to herself as she sipped the concoction, "OH MY!" she gasped as she pulled the glass away from her lips, it was amazing! She had never tasted something so delicious in her life! She took another sip, this time downing the whole drink in one go, she just couldn't resist!

"Oh, how unlady like of me," she groaned to herself as she put the glass away, "but, it was so good!" she sighed to herself. Oh well, it's not like anypony noticed. It was at this time that she heard a knock at her door, "that must be Applejack," she said to herself as she left her kitchen, "coming!" she said just loud enough for the knocker to hear, after all, a lady doesn't yell. She finally got to the door and opened it, revealing a smiling Applejack.

"Howdy Rare's," she said with a grin, "ah'm here ta try on that dress," she was...beautiful! Rarity's heart skyrocketed as she starred perfection itself! Her mane a beautiful golden color, perfectly green eyes, and the cutest little freckles on the cutest little cheeks!

"O-oh Applejack," she said with a blush, "w-welcome! Please, do come in!" she said as she grabbed the mare with her magic and pulled her in, shocking Applejack.

"W-whoa there, don't ya'll want me ta wipe mah hooves or something!?" Applejack asked as she tried to wiggle out of Rarity's grasp.

"Oh nonsense Applejack," Rarity said with a chuckle, "after all, we have much to do," she said as she pulled her new lover further into the house, locking her doors as she did so.

"Y-ya'll mean the dress right?" Applejack asked with a smile, Rare's must o' smacked her head again she thought bitterly to herself. It was going to be one of those nights.
