My Player Two
“Alright Class!” Cheerilee called to the bunch of of foals in her classroom early on a Thursday morning. Obediently, they all turned to give their teacher their full attention, even the newest addition, the purple dragon who Twilight enlisted because he doesn't 'go out much'.
Once they were all turned toward her, she smiled. “Today I have a little treat for all of you. It's called, Somepony New Day!” The group of kids looked a bit confused, so she decided to clarify. “It's a day where you have to spend time around somepony you wouldn't normally to try and make new friends, Princesses Twilight and Luna helped to organise this...”
Knowing that her class didn't really seem that optimistic about this, she decided to reveal her trump card. “You get the day off school~.” She sung, to which the class cheered with joy. She smiled and walked over to a box.
“Okay, so I'll pull names randomly out of this box and if I deem that these two particular ponies don't really see much of each other outside of class, then they are to spend the day together...” She said pulling the first name out. “Scootaloo...”
The orange Pegasus shifted a little nervously, almost praying under her breath. “Please not Diamond Tiara or Silver Spoon...Please not Diamond Tiara or Silver Spoon...”
“...and Rumble!” She declared, nodding. “Alright, you two are to spend the day together.”
“Who's Rumble?” Scootaloo thought to herself, scanning the sea of kids and finding him as Cheerilee pointed him out. He had a light grey coat and a two shaded, darker grey mane. “Well hello handsome...” She continued in her head, a dreamy smile starting to spread on her lips.
“Diamond Tiara and...” Cheerilee declared, pulling another name out. “...Twist. Yes, that'll do.”
Said pink filly turned to the bespectacled Earth Pony, who was waving to her excitedly, and sighed. “Well at least it's not one of the Blank Flanks...” She muttered to herself, ruefully.
“Snails...” She declared before announcing his friend for the day. “...With Silver Spoon.” The grey Earth Pony looked disgusted, but Snails looked like he didn't have a care in the world...mainly cause he usually didn't.
“Applebloom, you'll be paired up with Spike.” Said Earth Pony raised her hoof in the air, to which she nodded to her. “Yes Applebloom?”
“But Ah already know Spike. We're already friends.” She clarified, to which Cheerilee nodded.
“That maybe true, but I don't really see you spend any time around anypony other than Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle and it would be good to broaden your horizons a little.” She explained, but also thinking to herself. “And give the town at least one day without something getting destroyed...”
“Aright then...” She shrugged, satisfied with the answer. Cheerilee continued pulling names out of the ever shortening pile.
“Snips...You're paired with Truffle Shuffle.” The Unicorn smiled a bit, having dodged the 'girl' bullet so to speak. Truffle nodded too, not particularly minding his buddy for the day.
“So lastly, Sweetie Belle will be paired with Button Mash...Button! Stop playing that!” Cheerilee interrupted herself, only now just noticing the brown colt with the propeller hat playing a Nintendo gamehoof.
“Banana waffles...” He replied, not really listening at all to his teacher before the device was snatched out of his hooves. “Hey! I was just about to defeat the Goblin Shaman who had enslaved that camp of settler ponies!” Cheerilee sighed while the rest of the class burst out laughing at his comment.
“Button, you are to spend today with Sweetie Belle. I will give this to your mother so you won't be distracted by it.” She answered him. Button has always been an oddball. He didn't have any friends as far as she knew and was obsessed with these video games.
Button grumbled under his breath, trying to deem which of his class mates was Sweetie Belle.
“Alright class, you're dismissed. Go outside and find your partners...Oh and make sure you do spend the day with them...I hired some ponies to make sure you do...” She grinned, looking to her left and seeing Cheese and Pinkie peering through the window like the mad ponies they are.
“Alright girls, Ah'll see ya tomorrow.” Applebloom told Sweetie and Scootaloo, making her way towards Spike. “We're jus' gonna go ta tha library or somethin'.” She shrugged. She already knew the dragon, heck she made friends with him before she even met her two best ones, so she got pretty lucky with her turn.
“See ya girl!” Scootaloo waved back, seeing Rumble come round nervously. The orange Pegasus gave an infatuated sigh, much to the white Unicorn's confusion, before she starting walking towards the colt. “Bye Streaky Gel...”
“Um...It's Sweetie Belle?” She corrected her friend, dumbfounded by said friend's behaviour, before she felt a tap on her shoulder.
She turned to be face to face with Diamond Tiara and immediately drew back. “Oh great! She waited until I was alone this time! What does she want?!”
“Hey Sweetie Belle, I just wanted to warn you that Button isn't very social. So talking to him is going to be a bit tough.” She explained before walking away. “I really wouldn't expect to make a friend of him, heck I don't think anypony could!”
Sweetie Belle looked to where her nemesis was trotting away, confused. “Did she just...Try to be nice?” She thought to herself, before she really thought about what the pink pony said. “Pfft, of course not! She was just trying to make fun of Button Mash instead of me!”
Satisfied with her explaination, she sat down in the school playground and waited for the brown colt to leave the schoolhouse.
Button Mash grumbled as he left the building. “Great! Now my mom isn't going to let me play Mare Cry 3 for a month!” But, as an after thought, he shrugged. “Ah well, at least I didn't get detention.”
He scanned the playground for the pony he was supposed to be spending the day with, before his eyes laid on the white Unicorn who was twiddling her hooves, bored.
His eyes widened a little as he gazed upon the cute little filly in front of him, his heart hammering away at his rib cage and his cheeks starting to burn a little. “Wow...She's pretty...” He thought, before shaking it away. “...Y-you know, f-for a filly!”
She suddenly looked up and saw the colt with the propeller hat and smiled, trotting towards him. “Hi Button Mash!”
“Uh oh, she's talking! Quick! Say something cool!” “Bleeguhe!” “That wasn't it...”
Sweetie Belle tilted her head to the side in confusion. “Huh?”
“I mean, hello! I'm Button Mash!” The Unicorn giggled a bit.
“I know, silly, I just said that...”
“Oh right...he he...Sorry Sweetie Belle...” He replied, face hoofing himself in his head. “Why must I be so awful with fillies...Or anypony?” “So...uh...What did you want to do?”
“We could go to Shake 'n Mix? Get a milkshake.” She replied with a slight squeak at the end. “I'm kind of thirsty...”
“Sure!” He answered, trying his very hardest not to look like an idiot in front of her...again.
“So that's what a video game is!” Button finished while they were sitting down and waiting for their milkshakes to arrive. He had even pulled out his old JoyBoy from his propeller hat to show her.
“Um thanks...I only asked what you did for fun though...” Sweetie Belle replied, her head hurting from the lecture about the different aspects of video games and the microprocessors needed to transfer the information to the screen etc.
Button looked at her bored face and panicked. “Great you idiot! You're boring her! C'mon do something fun! Do something...”
“Order up!” They heard a stallion's voice ring out and two milkshakes, one vanilla for Sweetie Belle and chocolate for Button Mash landing in front of them. Suddenly an idea popped into his head...Such a stupid and ill thought out plan that it just had to impress her.
Just as Sweetie Belle was about to take a sip, Button pressed his face into hers. “Milkshake race! 1, 2, 3 Go!” He declared, before he started to slurp from his drink, not noticing Sweetie's confused and almost scared look.
“That's the way champ! This'll be sure to...” His inner monologue stopped short when a freezing sensation was felt around the back of his head. “ah...AHHHHHHHHH!” He screamed, feeling the most potent effect of drinking a milkshake too fast...
He grabbed his head in his forehooves and fell backwards off of his stool. The white Unicorn looked at him, at first in concern, but after a little bit it started to get a bit annoying. So, with a blank look on her face, she started to drink her milkshake at a relatively calm pace.
After about ten minutes, Button had still yet to get over his brain freeze and Sweetie Belle had just finished her own drink. She glanced over at his JoyBoy and slid it over to herself, bored, and started to play it herself.
“AAAHHH oh hey a bit!” She heard Button say, apparently finished with his little moment. He picked up the bit and got back on his chair, noticing his JoyBoy was no longer in front of him.
He panicked for a bit, before he noticed the familiar beeping of his game being played and turned to see Sweetie Belle jumping around on the game Mareio...quite well for a beginner too.
He glanced over her shoulder and found her facing Mareio's arch enemy Bowscolt, her jumping over the fire balls and squashing all of the Bombcolts that advanced towards her. “...How is she this good?! I wasn't even this good!”
His infatuation with this filly, which seemed prominent before, seemed to sky rocket now. She was pretty and played video games really well!
She had just defeated Bowscolt and looked up to see the brown colt watching her play. Feeling a little self conscious, she slid the device back over to him. “I guess you're done with your brain freeze, huh?” She asked.
“Huh, oh uh yeah...Sorry about that. Me and my brother usually do stuff like that when he's here...” “Huh? Why are you mentioning your brother?!”
“Oh. I guess that sounds fun...Does that happen a lot?” He rubbed his forehoof with the other one, feeling a little embarrassed.
“It's alright...Oh and by the way...” She grinned, pointing out her empty glass. “I won.”
After the fiasco at Shake n' Mix was over, Button and Sweetie Belle were running towards his house. “C'mon! Most of my other games are at my house!”
“I'm coming!” Sweetie replied, trying to keep up with a rather giddy Button Mash. “But you need to slow down a bit! I think I'm getting a stomach cramp!” She continued, to which he immediately stood stock still, causing her to collide into his back.
She fell over and suddenly became his centre of attention. “I'm sorry! Are you okay?! Please don't be mad! I didn't mean to hurt you!” He hurriedly stated, helping her to her hooves, blushing slightly when his hoof made contact with hers.
“I'm fine...Let's just...take it a little slower, okay? Your house isn't going anywhere.” She replied, catching her breath a little. Button saw this and nodded, feeling a little guilty.
“Way to go, doofus! You're never going to impress her at this rate!” He scolded himself as the two of them started to trot at a more casual pace towards his house.
Sweetie Belle, after about a minute of silence, decided to speak up. “Sooo...I don't see you hang around any of your friends...Why is that?” Button, startled by the question a little, decided to answer.
“W-well...I don't really have any friends...” He sighed a bit, before continuing. “Mainly because my family move so much that making friends ends up being pointless. I just end up having to leave them.”
“Oh...” Now it was Sweetie Belle's turn to feel guilty. He seemed upset now and it was because she was too nosy for her own good. “Sorry...”
“Hey, it's okay. Just gets a little lonely sometimes. My mom said we were finally gonna settle down here, but I'm not getting my hopes up just yet. We've only been here...” That's when Button realised something. “We've been here two years!”
“Well...I can be your friend...” She replied, fidgeting a little. She had only just gotten to know him but the awkwardness in his social behaviour and his sudden down trodden mood just made her feel bad for him.
He looked up and smiled. “R-really...”
“Yeah!” She answered, nuzzling him in a friendly way, causing his face to turn bright red. “You could probably join the Crusaders too since you don't have your cutie mark yet.”
He turned to look at his blank flank and shrugged a bit. “Oh I don't really care about the cutie mark.”
“WHAT?!” His ears folded back and looked at her shocked face. “How can you not care?! It's like one of the most important things ever!”
He whimpered a bit, thinking he had made his friend angry. “S-sorry...It's just that, well, I want to make video games in the future whether it's my special talent or not...I don't want my destiny told to me by a picture on my butt...”
Sweetie Belle considered this for a minute, before asking the prominent question on her mind. “What do you mean?”
“I mean...Well, what if my special talent was collecting garbage? Not only would I probably have a trash bag on my flank forever, but it's also something I really wouldn't want to do.” He answered. “And that wall eyed Pegasus has bubbles on her flank, but she's a mail mare. Delivering mail doesn't really have anything to do with bubbles and but she still does it. I already know what I'm gonna do, cutie mark or no cutie mark.”
The Unicorn was stunned by that answer and started to think of what bad things her cutie mark could turn out to be. “I...I'd hate to have garbage on my flank forever...But what if my special talent is spitting? Or burning things? Or sewer inspecting?” She began to tear up at the thought.
Button saw that and started kicking himself again. “Great! Now you've upset her!” “I'm sorry...”
“Y-you're r-right...” She sobbed, staring at the ground. “W-we...we just started crusading because w-we wanted to find our talents...We never t-thought of them being...icky talents...” She sobbed again, making Button feel even worse. “I don't wanna have garbage on my flank!”
“SAY SOMETHING!” “U-uh I'm sorry...I didn't mean t-to say that...I'm sure you won't be a garbage mare...” He started, placing a hoof on her shoulder. “I mean...You're really smart. You always answer Miss Cheerilee correctly in class...Maybe you'll get a cutie mark in that.”
She looked up at him in surprise. “You...y-you really mean that?”
“Heck yeah, you're way smarter than me anyway! And a lot of the ponies in class too! Only Applebloom and Spike even compare to you!” It took Button a couple of minutes to register exactly what he was saying, but he knew it was the right thing to say when Sweetie Belle started smiling again.
“Thank you...” She replied, nuzzling him again. “That's one of the nicest thing anypony's ever said to me.”
Button froze at the contact, but his inner monologue seemed to be congratulating him. “That a boy! That's the way to do it!”
“Maybe this is what it's like to be Deadpony...” Button thought to himself in his own voice, remembering the game with the stallion who appeared to be trying to break the fourth wall over and over again. “Having another voice in your head is weird.”
His was so into his thoughts, he didn't notice that the two of them had reached the front door to his home until he smacked right into it. “OW!” He yelped, holding his snout in pain,falling onto his haunches. Sweetie Belle looked over, concerned.
“Are you okay?” She asked, trying to look. He nodded, removing one of his hooves and raising himself from his sitting position.
“Yeah. I'm fine, I'm...okay I'm bleeding.” He interrupted himself, looking at his hoof which had a little of his blood on it. Sweetie Belle immediately knocked on the door, hoping his mother was home.
“Okay, tilt your head back...” She said, pushing his forehead a little to encourage him to do so. He complied, blushing a little at having her so close.
Just as he did this, a tan mare with a brunette mane and blue eyes, a cutie mark depicting a heart and a baby bottle on her flank answered the door. “Button!” She said, shocked at seeing her son bleeding out of his nose. “What happened?!”
“I walked into the door again...” He replied, a little nasally from holding his nose. She rolled her eyes.
“Okay, I'll get some ice but please try to stop playing your JoyBoy while walking...Wait, who's this?” She asked, finally noticing the white filly with his son.
“This is my new friend, Sweetie Belle. Can she come in? Please!” He would have given her the puppy eyes, but that was difficult to do with his face pointed towards the sky.
“Friend?...” She thought to herself, glancing at the filly before a happy smile spread on her face. “He finally has a friend!” “Of course she can, but first. Ice.” She said, leading the pair into the house, making sure to keep Button from bumping into anything.
Sweetie Belle stepped into the house, following the pair and looked over the place. It seemed fairly average in terms of houses, with a sofa, TV, coffee table and and pictures in the sitting room, pictures adorning the walls of the hall way and everything you'd expect in a kitchen.
She looked at one inparticular of the colt and the mare in front of him, pulling a funny face with Button on her back. “They seem really close...” She thought to herself, glancing to the real versions of them as his mom pressed an ice bag onto his nose, encouraging him to keep it there for a little bit. “A bit like me and Rarity...”
She smiled as she trotted towards the pair, Button's mom turning to greet her properly. “Sorry about that, Dear, I just get a little worried about him sometimes.” She mentioned, offering her the seat next to Button as he kept the ice on his nose.
She took the offer, looked over at Button, concerned. “When can he take that off?”
“It'll only be on a couple more minutes.” The mare replied, causing Button to shudder a bit. “But he reacts really badly to cold things.”
“That'll explain the milkshake incident...” Sweetie thought to herself before Button's mom continued.
“But where are my manners. My name's Love Tap, but just call me Button's mom. That's fine too.” She shrugged, trying to make the filly as comfortable as possible. Button hasn't had a friend in so long that she didn't want to be the reason one was driven away.
“Okay. I'm Sweetie Belle!” She replied, before pausing. “But Button already told you that, huh?”
Love Tap giggled a bit, before composing herself. “So when did you meet Button?”
“Um...About an hour ago actually.” She answered.
“Yeah!” Button exclaimed, the ice bag falling off his nose from the movement. The two jumped a bit, at his sudden interjection into the conversation as he continued. “It's Somepony New Day! We got the day off school to spend the day with somepony you usually wouldn't and I got paired up with Sweetie Belle and now we're friends!”
“...I see.” Love Tap answered after the information sunk in. “Well...Button was basically pushed into making a friend, but that doesn't matter! I've never seen him so happy about something other than a video game.”
“Mom, can we go to my room! I want to show her some of my games!” He asked, giving her the puppy eyes that seemed more effective now that he could actually face his mother.
“Okay Dear, but just be careful...” She didn't get time to warn him as he basically ran towards his room, but tripped on his Nintendo gamehoof that she had collected from Miss Cheerilee earlier. Sweetie Belle cringed as she heard a loud crash.
“...I'm okay!” His mother sighed, her face holding the same expression Sweetie Belle's had in Shake n' Mix. Sweetie Belle followed after, helping the colt off the floor and up the stairs.
“So this is MineCraft!” He declared, proudly, as he showed her the basic block game on his laptop as they sat on his bed.
Sweetie had been amazed when she saw his room, mainly because of the sheer amount of games the colt had. He had a shelf that was supposed to be for books, completely filled with game cases for almost every game under the sun. His TV wasn't any bigger than the one in the sitting room, but there were several rectangles around it that, she assumed, were the PlayStallions and Xboxs he was talking about on the way here.
“Okay...What do I do?” She asked, as he moved the computer over to her.
“Just press start and start gathering materials. From there, you can build a house.” Sweetie's eyes lit up and she immediately started to move the little avatar pony she made around to find, as Button said, wood, stone, wool and other necessities.
Her avatar swung it's arm at the square blocks as they crumbled away and were popped into her inventory.
“Alright, just a few more materials and you can start building!” He said, happily, before he felt her fur brush his. That's when he finally notice his proximity to the little white filly and scooted away, blushing a lot.
Sweetie Belle was too engrossed in the game to notice as her avatar continued to bust away blocks of wood, rock and other things. Her tongue poked out the side of her mouth as she continued to collect the items she needed, much in the same way Button does when he's concentrating.
“Wow...She's really cute when she does that...” There was a pause in his mind before another voice popped up. “That was you this time, not me! You have got it BAD!”
“Um Button...Nothing's happening.” He heard Sweetie Belle say, snapping himself out of his thoughts. He looked at the screen and saw the problem.
“Oh you just hit bedrock. That's indestructible stone so you can't collect it or go any further.” He answered, surprisingly calm. When his mom tried the game and made the same mistake, he'd been laughing for hours!
“Oh...” Sweetie replied, blushing in slight embarrassment. “Whoops.”
“It's okay, we all make mistakes. It took me a couple of hours before I realised I hit bedrock.” He replied, despite that being a lie. He had read the instruction manual first, so already knew and memorized everything about the game before playing. But he just felt some compulsion to make Sweetie Belle feel better about that simple error.
“Wow, you're growing soft!” Button blushed as the voice in his head started laughing at him. “Shut up!”
“But why does she have to sleep?” Sweetie asked, her character standing in the middle of her newly built house, just before the bed. It being night time in the digital world.
“Because mining at night is dangerous. Zombies, spiders, ender-mares, skeletons and creepers spawn at night and attack you.” Button explained, pointing out the hearts just above her selection bar. “That's your health and if you lose that, your character dies.”
Sweetie gasped dramatically. “But what about all the animals out there?! I already had to kill a sheep to make the bed! I don't want his family to die too!” Button grinned, despite himself.
“They don't attack animals, they only go for...What are you doing?!” Button interrupted himself as Sweetie Belle's avatar just charged straight out the door, Sweetie Belle giving an unceremonious battle cry, which sounded quite adorable.
“I'll save you Mr. Chicken and Scootaloo!” She declared, having named the two chickens in her house's front garden that.
“Sweetie...” Too late, as she charged, she ran straight into a creeper, a long green thing, that immediately exploded, taking out pretty much all of her hearts and her avatar died. “...Too late.”
“NOO!!!” Sweetie declared, like Darth Vader from Revenge of the Sith, glaring at the screen. “You shall rue this day Creeper! Rue it!” Button found the whole scene in front of him quite scary, but mostly very familiar.
“Probably because that's the exact same way I reacted when I first died at the hooves of a Creeper...” He thought to himself, smiling fondly. “The only way she could be more perfect is if she spoke Humgonian...” “One miracle at a time, big guy. Seriously, she's cute, incredibly nice and likes video games! You are staring right at your dream filly!”
“So do you have any two player games?” Sweetie Belle asked, curiously. He shook out of his thoughts.
“Huh...Oh yeah, plenty! What kind of game do you want to play?” Sweetie Belle rose an eyebrow, close his laptop carefully before following him over to the bookshelf.
“What kind of different ones are there?”
“Well you got adventure, RPGs, first pony shooter, third pony shooter, mystery, puzzle...I know!” She yelped a bit at his sudden exclamation as he pulled out a game.
“Portal 2?” Sweetie asked, looking at the image of a long, thin pony like robot jumping from one portal to another. Button set the game down to answer.
“Yeah! It's a puzzle game and a lot less gory than some of the others I have. I figured it'd be good to get you used to friendly games before introducing you to games like Call of Cutie or Grand Theft Apple (A/N: I could not come up with anything better!).” He replied, trotting over to the TV to plug in his PlayStallion.
Sweetie continued to look at the case, before opening it finding a disc and a little booklet. She took the booklet into her hooves and took to reading it.
Meanwhile, Button was facing a bit of a dilemma. “Which wire is which, again?” He thought to himself in his own voice. “Your an idiot!” The other voice chastised him.
He then decided to pick up the wire and give a little tug, watching as the newest looking box moved. “Nope, need the PlayStallion 3.” He thought to himself, finding the right wire and plugging it all in, switching the TV on.
“Okay, all set Sweetie Belle!” She smiled and carried the open case to the colt, who took the disc out and slotted it into the console.
Sweetie Belle watched in wonder as the screen then transformed into the title screen for Portal 2, Button sliding a controller over to her. “This is going to be SO much fun!” Button said, smiling. “I've always wanted to play two player, but never had anypony to play with.”
Sweetie smiled back. “Don't worry Button. I'll always be your player two!” She said confidently, yet she felt it was kind of a cheesy thing to say.
Button, on the other hoof, blushed like the sun was going to disappear tomorrow and the world had to rely on his face for warmth. He smiled stupidly, and turned to face the screen, ready to start the game.
Luckily, Sweetie was already facing the screen, so didn't catch his goofy expression or his bright red face. “Then let's get started!” He said, pressing start. “...And thanks Sweetie Belle...” He added as the game started.
“Thanks for walking me home, Button...” Sweetie Belle said, as the two walked up to the Carousel Boutique just as the sun was about to set.
“Only felt like the right thing to do. It's what friends do, right?” He replied, still smiling happily about how the day went. They had managed to get about half way through Portal 2 before his mom called them down for dinner.
After dinner, Sweetie Belle said she had to get home before her sister started to wonder where she was and Button, on impulse, offered to walk her home. His mom seemed quite impressed by his offer and Sweetie Belle happily let him accompany her.
“Still, thanks. I had a great time today. Today's Somepony New Day really did work out, huh?”
“Yeah!” He replied, before he started to rub his foreleg with the other, nervously. “S-so, would you like to come round tomorrow?”
“I can't tomorrow. I'm going to Applebloom's tomorrow...” She saw his deflated look and smiled. “You could come too.” He looked up, hopefully.
“Really?!” She nodded, still beaming.
“Of course! Even if you don't want to be a Cutie Mark Crusader, I still want you to meet Applebloom and Scootaloo! Plus, I'm sure they won't mind if you come as well, I'm sure they'll like you!” Button smiled at the thought of making even more friends.
“Cool! I'll ask my mom and tell you if I can make it tomorrow!”
“Sure.” Sweetie Belle replied, knocking on the door. As soon as she tapped it twice, Rarity answered, looking relieved.
“Oh thank goodness, Sweetie Belle, where were you?” Sweetie Belle nodded her head to the brown Earth Pony beside her.
“I was playing over at Button Mash's house and they let me stay for dinner.” She answered. Rarity sighed in relief.
“Oh good. But please, try to tell me when you go to other pony's houses. I was very worried.” She replied, walking in the door. Sweetie was a bout to follow, but she paused and contemplated something.
Just as Button was about to ask what was wrong, he felt her press her lips against his cheek, before pulling back and smiling brightly and the dumbstruck colt. “Thank you for today Button, it was really fun.” She said, ending her statement with a friendly nuzzle, before walking into her home and closing the door.
Button started to walk away, lost in his own thoughts...said thoughts were.“SHE KISSED ME! YAY! I'M THE HAPPIEST COLT IN THE WORLD!” And the other voice in his head stayed quiet.
Sweetie Belle happily trotted into the sitting room, opposite Rarity, who gave her sister a knowing look.
“What?” Sweetie Belle asked. Rarity smirked a bit, placing a book mark into her novel before giving Sweetie Belle her full attention.
“Oh I just want to hear how your date went.” The white mare stated, with a keen smile. Sweetie Belle smiled back, not used to being asked about how her days go, and started, without fully grasping what Rarity had said.
“It was great! We went to get a milkshake and...Wait! It wasn't a date!” The little Unicorn denied, going a little red in the face.
“Oh...And what of the good night kiss?” She asked, having had seen what Sweetie had done before entering the Boutique.
“I-I-I...I was just thanking him for walking me home...” She answered, flushing a little more. But, the more she thought about him, the more she started to see her new friend in that way. “...though he is kinda cute...”
The pair of Unicorns giggled and spent most of the night talking about her day with Button and what she could do to make him her permanent, player two, despite the fact that he already was.
