Of Apples and Marshmallows - Twilight-the-Pony

A collection of stories, written for RariJack prompt thread

“There!” Rarity cheered as she finished braiding Applejack’s mane, wrapping the endings with a golden thread. “Finally done!”

“And now, Ah look silly...” Applejack deadpanned, looking at her reflection in the mirror. “Why can’t we go like we are?”

“Don’t be silly, Applejack,” Rarity sighed. “It’s the Grand Galloping Gala. We have to look our best for it...”

“But why?” Applejack tilted her head. “Remember what happened last time? We went through all that fancy-schmancy shenanigans just to get to the worst party of our lives... Hay; we could just invite the Princesses to one of Pinkie’s parties and have a blast!”

“Princess Celestia asked us specifically,” Rarity replied with a faint smile. “But she also asked if there is a chance not to destroy half of the castle this time around...”

“Well,” Applejack paused as she tapped her chin with the hoof. “Ah think, that she should talk directly to Fluttershy about that.”

The remark forced a giggle out of Rarity.

“And ya’ll be trying to find yerself a prince again, and Twilight will probably just hang around with Princess Celestia again...” Applejack replied with a sigh. “Two more reasons not to go.”

Rarity snorted. “No more looking for a pony like Prince Blueblood for me. Besides; I wanted to ask a special somepony that I hold deep respect for to accompany me as my date to Grand Galloping Gala.”

“Like Ah said; Not much for me to do in the Gala, anyways,” Applejack grumbled. “Ah would just get bored watching ya’ll having fun... But Ah think, that Ah’ll just skip it this year, so Ah'll just wish you the best of luck with your date...”

“But that’s just it,” Rarity spoke shyly, slowly dragging her hoof on the ground.

“What is?”

“I- I don’t know how to ask that pony out...”

“That’s really simple, Rarity,” Applejack answered with a smirk. “Just be direct.”

“V- very well then... Applejack, would you like to accompany me to the Grand Galloping Gala as my date?”

Applejack froze in shock with her face now flush red, eyes widening, and her mouth flying ajar. “D-did you just...? On a date? B- but—”

Rarity nodded. “I’ve been trying to ask you out for a while now, but didn’t know how... It-It’s okay, if you decline.”

Applejack smiled and nodded faintly towards the unicorn. “I would love to.”
