Locked Away

by Antesha


The two had never been so happy to see one another. They stopped, and looked into each others eyes.
"Oh thank gosh Shy, I was so worried, I thought I was going to be alone for the night" Dash smiled
"Me too" Shy replied, "I thought you'd died, that's why I was there in the corner, I was scared out of my skin"
Dash giggled, "Why on Earth would I be dead Shy, I'm fine, and I'd never die knowing you'd be alone"
Fluttershy blushed, "I just...I didn't like the thought of losing you. I care about you Dash. I-"
Rainbow stopped the girl's sentence, and put her finger on the pink haired girl's lips. The two smiled, and just stayed, gazing into each others eyes. They shared a hug. Suddenly Rainbow felt safe for once, she was quite aware of Fluttershy's feelings for her, but didn't let that get in the way of the moment. They didn't feel like going anywhere at the moment, they just wanted to spend what time they have together, in peace. The two sat in the corner of the hall, in silence. Fluttershy began to well up with tears, and rested her head on her friend's shoulder. She wasn't sure why, but Dash suddenly felt sorry for Fluttershy. The shyest girl in the entire school, had to spend the night in the dark with only one friend to accompany her. The two simply sat in the silent canteen, where the only noise that could be heard was the mild weeps of Fluttershy.
"Rainbow, I know the night is going to be tough, but I'm glad I got to spend it with you". Rainbow Dash simply looked, and gave a small, sweet smile. Her cheeks went mildly red.
"Me too, I'm glad we weren't separated, I'd hate it if I was alone for the entire night" Dash replied.
The room was silent again.
Fluttershy couldn't contain herself anymore, she leaned over to Rainbow, and planted a kiss on her lips. This time both of their cheeks went bright red. There was a deathly silence, the hall went completely silent, the two just stared at each other. Fluttershy was more red than Rainbow, who was taken aback quite a bit, and had never expected that to happen. She was utterly speechless, and emotions began flushing through her. She had no idea what to say or how to act. The moment had suddenly become incredibly awkward
"You...wha....you kissed me!"
Fluttershy inched away from her friend ever so slightly, "I'm so sorry Rainbow, I didn't mean it. I was just...oh gosh".
The pink-haired buried her face in her hands, and began to weep. It had all happened so fast. She inched over to Fluttershy and rested her hand on her shoulder.
"Shy, I-"
All of a sudden, Shy pushed Rainbow away, and got up, her tears streaming down her face. "I, I just can't live like this anymore! Leave me alone!"
And with that, she bolted out of the hall, smashing the doors open as she did. Eventually, the pounds of her feet running down the halls became silent. Dash flew out of the hall too, but had no idea which hallway her friend had ran down. There were almost 5 different ways she could have gone. It would take Rainbow ages to patrol all the classrooms. They's only been together for less than 10 minutes and already they'd been separated again.
