Babysitter Part One

The Rite Passage is a part of all walks of life. No matter the nationality or spiritual beliefs, all must undergo one form of it at some point. In ancient times, a pegasi would not be acknowledged as one who could master the skies until they plucked a griffon's feather without taking flight to do so. This, of course, was eventually lost to history after griffon parents were knocking on the doors of delinquent pegasi homes so much that all the pegasi who were doing it became grounded. So the legends go.

Nevertheless, Rites of Passage continued to flourish. Not all were as brazen and so easily reported to your mommy and daddy when it went wrong; some of them were and still are very distinguished. Theses rites are met with honor by communities world wide. All very important. And all very much eagerly awaited to be taken by the ones who are set to undergo them the day they finally arrive.

"Please! No! Don't do this to me!" Sunset clung to the queen's leg, hooves looping through the gaping holes that riddled them.

In spite of the little mare's pleas, Chrysalis swung her front leg out before her, trying to wriggle Sunset Shimmer off of her. Yet the mare persisted, her grip like a vice against the changeling's leg. If it wasn't against her, Chrysalis would have admired the girl's ferocity right now. Still swinging her leg this way and that to dislodge the pleading Sunset Shimmer, Chrysalis scowled and gave a hiss of shame to the cowering mare. "Child, release me this instant. You are to watch your brother while the two of us are out."

Sunset couldn't count how many times the changeling queen had repeated that same line to her tonight. Mainly because counting the times would distract from begging her not to leave her alone. "Why? Why do you have to go!?" Sunset was almost in tears as she cried out to her caretakers.

Discord chimed in with a depressed sigh and a slump of his mismatched shoulders. "Because aunty Celestia believes we need 'couple counseling '." Air quotes were made for those two dreaded words; quotes made from a talon.

"Call a sitter. Call a princess. Call SWAT. Just don't leave me alone with him!" Sunset Shimmer finally released the leg she was using to barter for hope so she could make a gesture towards her point of panic.

Over across the room the family was arguing in was Pipsqueak sitting at a lone wooden table; a series of boxes stacked on the face of the table while Pipsqueak smiled a joyful look towards the three. "No fret. Got us some good ol' games 'ere! Smooze n' Laddah's anyone?"

Both 'Queeny' and 'Cap'n' waved graciously back to the little colt that looked so eager to play. On the other hand, Sunset Shimmer only looked more panicked and tried to grab for the queen's leg again. This time, however, Chrysalis took quick steps back to evade the mare. "Take care of him. We will return soon."

The two didn't wait for any more protest from Sunset before making their escape out the front door; shutting it squarely behind them to cut off any attempts from Sunset Shimmer of chasing after them before they could actually leave. That didn't stop her from slamming her hooves against the door, screaming at the top of her lungs for them not to leave her alone with him. Yet, it was all in vain. They were gone. And she was still there...


With Pipsqueak...

And hours of board games...

"...Ya' can be the blue piece if ya wan'..." Pipsqueak called out to Sunset Shimmer over her despair.
