A Mother's Love

Advice of Love

It was a beautiful Saturday morning and Lightning Twister was already awake and was pacing around his bedroom. He couldn't sleep last night, ever since the night he kissed Scootaloo under the mistletoe at the hearth's warming eve party, he hasn't been able to stop thinking about her. He knew hearts and Hooves day was tomorrow and it was obvious to all of his friends that he liked her. He wanted to get her something but he didn't know what.

Lightning continued to pace around his room until Fluttershy entered the room.

"Lightning is everything alright sweetie?" Fluttershy asked worryingly

Lightning looked at his mother for a second before wondering if she could help him. He shook his head in response to her question before saying, "I have a little problem, Momma."

Fluttershy sat down in front of her son and Listened

"Tomorrow is hearts and hooves day and...um...I want to get something for a filly I have a crush on."

Fluttershy smiled at hearing that her son had a crush.

"Oh, that's wonderful sweetie, who do you have a crush on?"

Lightning let out a sigh and said, "I have a crush on Scootaloo."

Fluttershy gasped in shock but urged her son continue talking.

"She's nice, she's funny, we both like racing and flying, and she is very pretty. I like Scootaloo, Momma and I want her to be my special somepony for Hearts and Hooves day. I want to get her a gift, but I don't know what to give her."

Fluttershy softly smiled at Lightning at first she thought he was a little young to like a filly, but then she remembered that Lightning is growing up and Scootaloo's only a year older than him. She was also the one out of all his friends that he spends time with the most. She may act like Rainbow Dash at times but she really was a sweet little filly.

Remembering her sons dilemma she smiled at her son before speaking,

"Well, sweetheart, the best thing you can do is give her something that comes from your heart. Give her something that tells her how much you care about her. If you do that I'm sure she would like just about anything you gave her."

Lightning listened to his mother and pondered for a few minutes on what to give her. He then thought of a good idea.

"I think I know what I'll give her, thank you, Momma." Lighting said to his mother before hugging her and nuzzling her cheek.

"You're welcome, sweetheart," Fluttershy said sweetly "Now let's go downstairs and have some breakfast."

Lightning softly smiled and nodded his head before going downstairs with his mother.


In the cloud home of Rainbow Dash, Scootaloo was sitting on her bed while rubbing her temples with her hooves. She stopped when she heard a knock on her bedroom door.

"Come in!" Scootaloo called out

The door opened and revealed Rainbow Dash who entered the room. She had look of concern on her face when she laid eyes on Scootaloo.

"Hey Scoots," Rainbow began "You've been up here all morning is something wrong?"

Scootaloo immediately shook her head in response before saying, "No, everything's fine, Rainbow Dash."

Rainbow gave her a knowing look before arching and eyebrow and tapping her hoof expectantly.

"Scootaloo, I know your lying to me, now spill it." Rainbow said firmly.

Scootaloo just closed her eyes and lowered her head. She knew she couldn't get anything past Rainbow Dash. She wanted to tell her what was bothering her but she didn't know what Rainbow would say. Scootaloo let out a sigh knowing it was probably best to tell her.

"Tomorrow is Hearts and Hooves day." Scootaloo said

Rainbow looked at her in confusion and said, "Yeah, so?"

Scootaloo gulped and let out a sigh before saying, "I kind of have a crush on a colt."

Rainbow gave her a smug look and said, "You like Lightning Twister don't you?"

Scootaloo's face went bright red.

"How did you know that?" She asked

Rainbow chuckled a little bit before saying, "I've seen the way you've been acting around him these past few months and I also saw you two kiss at the Hearth's Warming Eve party."

Scootaloo was now red with embarrassment. She didn't want to tell Rainbow Dash that she liked Lightning, but she was right. She did have feelings for Lightning.

Scootaloo eventually let out a long sigh and said, "Yes I do like, Lightning Twister. He's totally awesome. He's fast, he likes flying and he's really sweet. He's also kind of cute. Whenever I'm with him I feel happy."

Scootaloo looked down in sadness while Rainbow looked at her in confusion.

"What's wrong Scootaloo," Rainbow asked. "Is liking Lightning Twister a bad thing?"

Scootaloo looked up to her surrogate older sister before talking.

"I just thought if I told you I liked him, you would think it was sappy and uncool." She confessed

Rainbow didn't know what to say to that. Instead she went over to Scootaloo and sat down beside her on the bed. She wrapped a foreleg around and pulled her close before talking to her.

"Listen kiddo, I don't think you liking Lightning is sappy or uncool. In fact I think it is kind of cool that you like a colt. Don't ever think that liking someone is uncool. It's okay to be tough but still have a softer side. I may be the most awesome Pegasus in Equestria, but I'm still a girl. I may be tough and athletic but I like being a little girly, sometimes." She said before putting emphasis on the word sometimes.

Scootaloo giggled a little bit before nodding her head. She understood what Rainbow was trying to say. She gave her a hug around her waist and thanked her. However she was still stumped on what she could do for Lightning on hearts and hooves day.

Rainbow could tell what she was thinking and said, "Look scoots don't worry I'm sure you'll think of something for Lightning. I'm sure you he will like whatever you give him." Rainbow looked at Scootaloo and gave her a mischievous smile. "I'm sure by the time tomorrows over, you both will be just fine and will be going back to smooch city."

Rainbow playfully making kissing sounds which made Scootaloo throw her pillow at the cyan mare while laughing.

She jumped off the bed and ran to the door before saying, "Yeah, well what are going to do for Soarin tomorrow?"

Rainbow face turned bright red when she heard Sorain's name. Scootaloo laughed at Rainbows reaction and ran down the stairs.

Rainbow let out a laugh of happiness before going after the little filly while shouting, "Hey come back here!"
