Worthless Life - mlplover17

"There's no point living anymore." Scootaloo said to herself as she sat on the edge of the cliff. This was it.

Why Just Why

"How is she?"

"All I know right now, is that she's not dead." Rainbow said, still looking at the filly, her voice soft and cracking from crying. The hospital monitor started beeping faster. Scootaloo's eyes opened slowly.

"Scootaloo?" Dash said, wide eyed, tears coming down her face. Scootaloo looked at her, eyes half open and smiled lightly. Or at least she thought it was a smile. It was hard to tell from the mask.

"Twilight. Get the doctor." she said, like in a panic, still looking at the moving filly.

Twilight ran and got the doctor. He came in and removed the oxygen mask from Scootaloo. She opened her eyes slowly, fully, and looked at Rainbow Dash.

"I'm sorry Mom." she said softly.

"No Scoots. I'm sorry. I should've noticed your behavior was because of a big reason."

"You did ask. I just didn't want to say anything."


"I was afraid you would be disappointed in me for crying about this." she said, as she sat up.

"Being bullied?" she said seriously, looking into the filly's purple eyes.

"How'd you find out?" Scoots asked, in a panic.

"I took a wild guess." she said as she rubbed her daughter's front hoof.

"I would never be disappointed in you for showing your feelings. Scoots I would NEVER be disappointed! If your having problems I need to know. I can help you."


"Pinkie promise. Cross my heart and hope to fly, stick a cupcake in my eye." she said smiling, as she did the motions. Scootaloo giggled at this.

"You better relax." Rainbow said, walking towards the entrance to the hospital.

"Where are you going?"

"It's a surprise. I'll be right back." she said as she flew off, leaving Twilight and Scootaloo alone.

"I'm glad your okay Scootaloo."

"Me too."

"How long did she bully you?"

"Over a year. It got worse when Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle got their cutie marks."

"I'm just glad you're okay now." Twilight said to the filly, smiling.

Rainbow Dash came back a few minutes later with the surprise. Scootaloo's eyes lit up when she saw who it was.
