A Mothers Rage

Fluttershy and her friends were going as fast as their bodies would allow them to go to reach Cold Wind's house and rescue Lightning from him. Fluttershy had tears flowing down her face as she thought of how much pain her son could be in right now. Rainbow flew alongside her and rubbed her shoulder trying to keep her calm.

"Don't worry, Flutters we're almost there. I promised you we would get Lightning back and we will." Rainbow said as gently as possible even though she was ready to tear Cold Wind limb from limb.

Fluttershy nodded her head and picked up speed trying to get to Cold Wind's house faster.

At his house, Cold Wind went downstairs to the basement to get a look at the tied up Lightning Twister. When he saw him, he saw that Lightning was crying and trembling uncontrollably out of both being cold and being afraid.

"D-Daddy P-please L-let m-me g-" Lightning was cut off by a sharp strike to the face making his eye turn black.

"I told you I didn't want to hear a sound out of you, you sniveling little freak." Cold Wind snapped harshly before going to a nearby box and pulling out a cloth.

"if you can't shut up then I guess I'm gonna have to make you." he said cruelly.

Cold Wind tied the cloth around Lightning's mouth making his cries muffled. Once it was good and tight, Cold Wind got to his hooves and spit right in Lightning's black eye.

"I'm gonna go try to find a place in Cloudsdale to stay, and your coming with me when I do find one. Until then your staying down here!" he snapped harshly.

He flew back upstairs and slammed the basement door closed once again leaving Lightning in darkness. Once he was back in his Living room he quickly opened one of the window curtains to see if there was still nothing outside. However when he looked out the window he saw six ponies coming his way at an incredibly fast speed.

Cold Wind quickly grabbed a key a locked the basement door shut as the ponies drew closer. However once he turned around his front door was immediately broken down by an irate Rainbow Dash. The second Rainbow laid eyes on him, she charged at him and tackled him with enough force to break down the kitchen door with both his and her body. Before Cold Wind could even react, Rainbow grabbed him by his mane and threw him back into the Living Room where he was now laying in front of five other furious ponies.

Applejack turned around and tried to buck him but Cold Wind was able able to avoid it and get back on his feet. He did not stay on them for long though as an Enraged Fluttershy tackled him and pinned him to the floor. She stomped on his stomach, knocking the wind on him. She then sat on his stomach and began bringing down several sharp hooves to his face, causing him to get a black eye and a broken bloody nose. This side of Fluttershy began to make the others a little uncomfortable. They knew she was upset and angry but they never seen her like this.

"Fluttershy, darling you need to calm down." Rarity said

Fluttershy however wasn't listening as she got off of Cold Wind and pinned his body to the wall before giving him the stare.

"Where is my son!? Where is Lightning!?" Fluttershy snapped in a cold venomous tone that made all of her friends step back and made Cold Wind cringe somewhat.

"Wait your his Mother?" Cold Wind said with a look of confusion on his face.

Fluttershy however said nothing and threw him back onto the ground where he was bucked by Applejack. Before he could even make another move he was grasped around the neck and began being choked by Twilight's magic. She trotted up to him and glared at him coldly before speaking in a low furious tone.

"I suggest you be quiet and listen Cold Wind, I'm going to give you three seconds to tell us where Lightning is or I will break your neck as easily as breaking a twig."

Cold Wind felt himself beginning to fade as he finally revealed Lightning's location.

"He's in the Basement!"

Twilight released her magical grip on him and he fell to the floor but just as he caught his breath Fluttershy immediately brought her hoof down on his neck and snapped, "Where is the basement?"

Cold Wind knew he couldn't fight anymore and he pointed towards the basement door. Fluttershy immediately flew over to the door as Pinkie and Rarity watched Cold Wind to make sure he didn't move. She tried to open it but it was locked. She was about to go back and attack Cold Wind once more but Applejack and Rainbow worked together to kick the door down. They stepped aside and let Fluttershy fly inside to get Lightning.

When she flew down the stairs she gasped when she saw Lightning tied up in the center of the room.

"Lightning!" She shouted before flying over to her injured son.

She untied the cloth from his mouth and untied his wings and hooves. Lightning turned over and was blinded a little bit by the light, but when the blurriness from his good eye began to clear he gasped as he recognized the pony in front of him.

"M-Momma!" Lightning cried as he embraced his mother.

He began shaking and crying so hard and uncontrollably that he was having trouble breathing. Fluttershy scooped the little colt into her forelegs and cradled him close to her. She gently rocked him while nuzzling and hushing him.

"Shh...it's alright, sweetheart, Momma's here. Momma's going to make everything alright." She softly cooed. Lightning continued crying as Fluttershy got a look of his rope burned hooves and wings as well as his swollen black eye. Lightning continued to tremble and cry uncontrollably as he buried his head into his mother's soft chest fur. Fluttershy became enraged when she saw the condition her son was in. She flew upstairs and glared angrily at Cold Wind.

"You did this to him didn't you?" She hissed coldly to the stallion making Cold Wind shudder a little.

Rarity trotted up to Fluttershy and she gently grabbed hold of Lightning and cradled him close to her.

"N-No M-Momma!" Lightning screamed in fear as his eyes were closed and he was unaware of who was holding him.

"Shh..It's okay my sweet and darling little nephew, It's only your Auntie Rarity." Rarity softly cooed into the terrified colts ear in the gentlest of voices.

With her son safe in Rarity's forelegs, Fluttershy immediately shot towards Cold Wind and tackled him back onto the ground.

"You monster!" She screamed in his face "How could you do all this to your own child, you sorry excuse for a father!?"

Cold Wind had enough of Fluttershy and he used his hind legs to kick her off of him. Fluttershy grunted and landed hard on the ground leaving everyone in shock. Cold Wind used the opportunity to escape the house full of ponies. However he only made it a few yards away before he was face to face with two royal guards and a very angry Princess Celestia.

Cold Wind recognized her and immediately flew in the opposite direction. The princess however was able to catch him and bring him back to the house with him in her magical grasp. Two royal guards immediately flew over to Cold Wind and pinned him to the ground before shackling his hooves.

"Cold Wind, you are under arrest for child abuse and avoiding arrest." Princess Celestia snapped as the guards began taking him away.

Cold Wind Fought as hard as he could to avoid being taken but the two guards were stronger than him. With an enraged look in his eye, he looked into his son's terrified and tear filled eyes and screamed at him at the top of his lungs.


The guards eventually got him out of the house and Princess Celestia began to trot over to Lightning who was back in Fluttershy's forelegs and was crying and shaking from fear and hearing his fathers cruel words. The princess softly nuzzled the little colt and hushed him.

"Shh..It's alright my little pony, your fathers gone and your safe now." She said to him softly as Lightning continued to cry.

The princess looked at the rest of the ponies in the room and said, "I must leave now, I thank you all for helping capture Cold Wind and I congratulate you for getting Lightning back."

The princess stepped out of the house and beside a now exhausted Cold Wind. She glared at him coldly before disappearing with him in a flash of light.

Fluttershy was satisfied that Cold Wind was gone and looked down at her son who was still shaking and crying uncontrollably. He had not stopped crying since Fluttershy freed him but she thought it would be best for him to let it all out. He was hurt and scared to death.

"Shhh...It's alright, Lightning, Momma's got you." Fluttershy softly cooed into Lightning's ear as she gently nuzzled him. "Everything's will be alright, sweetheart...shhh."

While Lightning cried quietly Fluttershy looked at her friends and said, "I think we should take him to a doctor to have him looked at."

Everyone nodded in agreement and Everyone left the old house and made their way back to Ponyville. Fluttershy cradled her crying son close to her soft warm fur and gently kissed him on the forehead. He was safe now.
