Locked Away

"Fluttershy, no no no. You don't have to apologise" Dash said caringly, "You didn't do anything wrong"
"But I did do something wrong! I kissed you when I shouldn't have! I was rude and disrespectful, and I'm scared to show my face around you ever again!". Dash was shocked, she had no idea that was how Shy felt. She sighed, "You weren't rude at all Shy, that kiss was nice, and honestly, that was my first kiss. I'd never have thought it was from someone as nice and beautiful as you". She walked over to her injured friend, still lying on the bed. Rainbow kneeled down, smiled at Fluttershy, and lightly kissed her on the forehead. For the first time in the last 30 minutes, Fluttershy opened her eyes, she simply looked at Dash, and gave a small, sweet smile.
"I'm sorry Dash, it's just..."
"What is it pal?"
Fluttershy went silent for a moment, then sighed, and looked back up at Rainbow Dash.
"I love you"
Rainbow had never blushed so much in her entire life
Shy spoke again. "I have done ever since I met you, you're just so amazing, the way you look, the way you talk, act, play. Everything about you just seemed perfect. I wanted to spend the rest of my life by your side, but I never told anyone because I thought you were more into boys, and you'd laugh it off if I ever told you"
Rainbow simply stared, taking in every word.
"I always think to myself that I would do anything just to feel your arms around mine, and our lips touching, that was why I kissed you in the hall, because when we sat there together, I felt safe for the first time in my life"
Rainbow had to look away for a moment to hide her bright red face, no-one had ever said something so touching to her in her entire life. She touched hands with Fluttershy, and the two smiled at each other. Rainbow closed her eyes, rested her forehead on Fluttershy's, and uttered four simple but beautiful words:

"I love you too"
