Sight Seeing

It was mid afternoon. Starstruck and Magnolia had just left the hotel room from our meeting, Pinkie sat on her bed reading her book of party ideas and put sticky notes inside.

"Hey Cheesy, what were you and Starstruck talking about?"

"It's a surprise Pinkie, You'll see later."

"Awww why do I have to wait?"

"Because I don't want to ruin it. There's no fun in it if I tell you, is there?"

" I guess not, I'll try to wait. I'm sure it will be ultra amazing!"

"Trust me it will be" I thought. I thought back to my conversation with Starstruck.

"I'm glad we can finally work this all out."

" I am too. Is there anything else that you'd like to suggest?"

"No not really...I kinda let Maggie decide on most of the wedding. I do like the idea of a wedding in the sky. No pony has ever done it and we'll be the first to do so!"

"Indeed! There are a few things that we'll need to work out but other than that everything is going as planned. Speaking of the wedding, do you know the exact date?" I completely forgot that they did not know an exact date. All they told me was that they planned to marry this month.

"I guess the 24th? Something special is on the 24th but I can't place my hoof on it..."

"Wait the 24th?! That's next week!"

"Indeed.It's Thursday and I'm sure we'll be able to work everything out by then."

"Yes... I suppose we could."

"Oh, and Maggie wanted me to invite you and your fillyfriend to dinner tonight.

"W-what? She isn't my filly friend!"

"I see the way you look at her. You're head over heels in love."

"... I guess...you could say that..."

"Tell you what! Maggie and I will be your wing ponies.It'll be a double date!"

"Alright then... I guess that sounds okay."

"Awesome! We'll see you two then. Meet us at Chez La Mare tonight at 7!"

"Alright! We'll see you then."

Starstruck walked out of the room and followed Magnolia down the hallway.

"I guess we'll see what happens tonight." I mumbled. Pinkie was finishing up bookmarking pages in the ideas book.

"All done! I bookmarked the Sky Wedding and added the food ideas."

"Cool!"

"Pinkie, how are we going to work everything else out?"

"Like what?"

"Well for instance, how are we going to get up to clouds? How will we walk on them?"

" I think that I said I have a friend who can help. Twilight brought us to Cloudsdale with a cloud walking spell...."

Pinkie drifted deep into thought, She probably thought about Twilight and yesterday's confrontation. A part of me couldn't help but think that Pinkie shouldn't have been so mean,but her feelings toward Twilight and the three others... were so candid. I also blamed myself for telling her everything. I didn't have to tell her but she deserved to know the truth...

"Cheesy. Is there anything else needed to do today?"

I thought for a second. It was only 3pm. We had only four hours left until we needed to be at the restaurant. I guess we could sight see like she asked.

"There's nothing more to do. Wanna go sight seeing?"

"Sure let's go!"

Pinkie bounced up and was ready to go. "Vamos Cheesy!"

I remembered something else,I completely forgot Pinkie hurt her ankle a few days ago.

"Pinkie, is your ankle okay?"

"Where have you been silly? Of course it's okay!"

" Oh sorry Pinkie. I just remembered you hurt yourself. "

" Nothing to worry about! Now let's go! I wanna see everything."

Pinkie drug me out of the door, and went into the elevator. She wasn't as frightened as she was when we first rode it.

"Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee! This is so fun!"

She enjoyed the brief ride in the elevator and we proceeded out of the hotel.

"Where are we going first?"

"Let's go to Central Park." I whistled for a taxi and one soon approached us.

"Where to?" the driver asked in a gruff voice,

"To Central Park."

The driver ran and the taxi began to shake.

"Whoaaaa!"

Pinkie nearly fell out of her seat, but instead fell into into my arms."

"Oops. Sorry Cheese."

"N-No problem Pinkie..."

"Mind if I stayed in your arms until we get there? I don't wanna fall out."

"I don't mind."

Pinkie sat in my lap until the taxi stopped. I paid the driver and he sped off.

"Welcome to Central Park!"

"Wooow! It's gorgeous! It's like a million times bigger than the Ponyville Park."

Pinkie was stunned by the sheer beauty of the park. There were few ponies there today. It was a perfect day for a walk. Where was everypony?

We walked and sat on a beautiful cement fountain.On the other side of the fountain I heard a gentle weeping.

"Awww who's crying?"

Pinkie walked over to investigate the weeping sound.

A young unicorn mare sat on the fountain crying.

"Awww what's wrong?"

"...."

"Come on! You can tell me. We're friends."

I wasn't sure if Pinkie actually knew this pony. Maybe she was just trying to help this poor pony.

"Hey come on tell me-"

"Will you just shut up?! For Celestia' s sake I don't want to talk!"

"But I just think you need a friend..."

"Forget friends. What's the point in them? The ponies you know the best can hurt you the most."

"But..."

"But what?! I'm pretty sure you've hurt some pony. Or some pony has hurt you."

"..."

"That's what I thought."

The mysterious mare got off the fountain and left the park. Pinkie stared at the ground and I tried to console her.

"Pinkie don't listen to her. It's not your fault she's unhappy."

"But it is... She would have been better off crying than with my assistance..."

"I understand you just want to make ponies happy-"

"Yeah but guess what? She was right. I have hurt some pony I've cared about. My best friends. The entire town...."

Pinkie stopped staring at the ground and had an epiphany.

"I... I am a hypocrite..."

"How so..."

"My friends did all of that for me. Actually for the two of us... And I didn't appreciate it because I felt like they wanted my happiness to contribute to the well being of Ponyville... But in reality I wanted that. I want to make ponies happy. I lost sight of that. I feel so foolish. When I was talking to that pony, she made me realize something. I... Really hurt them. I didn't even think about how selfish or stupid I was..."

Pinkie' s mane returned to a semi straight hairdo. I didn't really understand her feelings but I knew that they were justified.

"Pinkie...it'll be okay. I'm sure they'll forgive you."

".... I don't really know Cheese. I said some really mean things."

"I'm 100% certain they will. You've been friends for a while right? They'll forgive you."

"... I guess."

Pinkie frowned and stared at the ground once more.

"Pinkie it will be fine. Trust me." I kissed her in an attempt to make her feel better. She smirked and looked at me.

"Do you really think so?"

"Definitely."


"...."

Pinkie stood up and her mane poofed back to normal.

"Thanks Cheesy for always making me feel better."

"No problem Pinkie. That's what friends are for. Right?"

"Right! Come on Cheese! I want to see more of Manehattan."

"Okey Doke!"

We left Central Park and continued our afternoon of sight seeing. I still planned on attending the double date tonight with Pinkie, Starstruck and Magnolia. How would she feel about it? I guess I'll find out soon.
