Cold

Applejack softly nudged Rarity.

She only moaned, and Applejack nudged her again, and again, there were no other reaction. She wanted to try for the the third time, but instead of a soft nudge, she brushed her muzzle against Rarity's, gently pushing it forward and a moment later, changing it to a kiss.

Applejack smiled as she saw Rarity open her eyes for a mere moment, just to close them in expectancy of something more.

But the continuation never came. In disappointment, she opened her eyes again and muttered in groggy voice: "You're no fun, Applejack."

"And yer still sleeping," Applejack replied in a sugar-coated voice. "Ya should be helping me buck apples. remember?"

Rarity wrapped herself in the blankets even more. "But it's cold out there, Applejack. And you know what cold does to my coat and my mane..."

Applejack sighed. "Ah should have known," Applejack muttered. "After all this time Ah expected ya'd come with something a bit more original."

"What do you mean, Applejack?" Rarity asked in a sweet and innocent voice. "It really is cold outside." She scrunched her muzzle and forced out a cough. "And I think I'm coming down with something, too." Another cough. "See? I think it's getting worse..."

"Rarity..."

"I wish it was a little warmer in here. Maybe then the coughing would go away?" She coughed yet again.

"Ah ain't biting this time, Rares," Applejack replied with a deadpan voice.

Rarity pouted. "Aw. Not even for a couple of minutes? You've been up and running around for a couple of hours now, and I know you wouldn't mind a little break, would you?"

"Rares, no."

"Then what seems to be a problem?" Rarity asked sweetly and batted her eyebrows.

Applejack groaned. "Yer doing this on purpose aren't ya? Ah swear Ah'll get ya for this one of this days..."

"Me doing something to you, Applejack? Moi? Why in Equestria would I want to do anything to you?" Her muzzle got closer to Applejack's, close enough that could feel her breath. "Aside of the obvious, of course." She pushed her muzzle even further and kissed Applejack.

"Ah just can't win, can Ah?" Applejack replied after muzzles parted. "Few minutes, ya said?"

"You won't be missed, if you're gone only for a few minutes," Rarity breathed and smiled.

Applejack stepped on luxurious bed and slipped under the soft silk sheets. She smiled when her hooves wrapped around the warm body in front of her. "Ah knew ya were lying..."

"If a little lie is all I need to get you back for a little while—"

"Mom, are you going to—" Silver Streak paused for a moment after seeing two ponies cuddle in the bed.

"Aren't ya supposed to be on the field with others, Silver Streak?" Applejack asked in a deadpan voice.

The filly nodded. "I was, mom, but it's really cold outside. Can I snuggle up with you for a while?"

After a nod, Applejack turned her head towards Rarity and cleared her throat.

"Don't look at me. She is just as much of your daughter as she is mine, Applejack," Rarity replied with a smile. "Not to mention that you told me you were exactly like her."

Applejack smiled, but said nothing. She clenched her hooves around Rarity and their foal and drifted to sleep that took few hours instead of mere minutes. But none of them mind it.

It was worth it.
