Author's Note:

I hope this chapter don't look creepy cause I'm updating it on my cell phone. :pinkiehappy:Anyways, a surprise is waiting for you at the end of this chapter

Rainbow's P.O.V.

We went back to party when Soarin was done showing and explaining about house and bay. There, my parents asked me about Soarin's gift and after finding out about it, they thanked Soarin and kept telling him that he didn't have to do it. In return, Soarin kept repeating that he'll do anything for me and made me blush every time he said that.

Even though it was past 11:00 but nopony was tired and party was still going on without some of the guests who were mostly little fillies and colts.

I couldn't be happier in my life. That day was just wonderful. True that at first I thought that my friend had forget me and my birthday but then it turned out to be not only the best birthday I've ever had, but also, the best night of my life.

It just looked like that all of my days were the best ones I've ever had when I spent them with Soarin. He just made all of my days brightened.

I smiled as I listened to a music that was playing and others were singing with it while eating their dinner. Some ponies who had ended their meal were even singing with the singer.

Pinkie who wasn't sitting far from me suddenly gasped and shouted, "I GOT IT!"
"What did you get Pinkie?" said Twilight curiously.

"The perfect song for Dashie's wedding," said Pinkie with a big grin.

"And what is it?" asked Applejack.

"Well the song that is playing of course," said Pinkie as she stood up and started bouncing up and down. "It's gonna be super duper amazing and will make everypony there smile! Isn't Dashie?"

"Huh? Oh, yeah," I said.

"Was he about to kiss you AGAIN?" asked Twilight with a devilish smile.

I rolled my eyes and answered, "No, I was thinking about Hurricane."

"Has anything happen to him? Can we help?" asked kind Fluttershy who seemed worried at that moment.

"No, everything's fine. It's just... forget it. It's a long story." I said with a sigh.

"As long as this story is romance, I'll listen," said Rarity as she sipped her lime soda.
"Well it IS a little romantic but mostly sad."

"Then start. You know how much I love stories," said Twilight as she looked at me with eyes filled with enthusiasm.

"OK. Well, you see, there has been a mare that Soarin had met at one of the shows and fell in love with. That mare came to see him after every show but one day she didn't came anymore. Ever since that day, he had been depressed till I accept this crazy tradition thing."

"Whoa, stop there. How do ya know about this?" asked Applejack.

"Spitfire told me."

"Sorry sugar cube. Continue."

"Spitfire said that day he proposed me he turned back to what he used to be. But the thing is she don't know who was that mare but she did say that Soarin talked about that mare to my brother but even Hurricane wasn't sure who that mare was. He had a guess but wasn't sure about that mare."

"So what now?" asked Twilight.

"Oh, Twilight darling, you should read some romance novels along with that science books. I think she wants to sacrifice herself don't you Rainbow?"
"Somehow. At first I just decided to find that other mare and also show Soarin that I'm better pony to fall in love with but the more I'm thinking, the more I decide to sacrifice myself," I admitted painfully.

"Hello? I don't understand. Does Rainbow want to kill herself?" said Twilight.

I facehoofed. Sometime the most egghead girl I've ever seen went so idiot that I doubt she was the old Twilight or not. "No idiot. Not that kind of sacrifice. It means that I have to go away so Soarin and that mare can have a good life together."

"Oooh, you meant THAT meaning. Now I get it. But... you shouldn't do it," said Twilight.

I raised my head and looked at her. "Why shouldn't I?" I let my head fall again as I continued, "If that's what make him happy, I'll do it."

It truly was sappy. Very sappy for the great Rainbow Dash that never cared about romance and love but it was something that I have to admit.

"Awww, how cute!" said Pinkie. "But Twilight has a point. If you do this, you'll be sad and if you're sad, then others are sad and if others are sad then I'll be sad too and if I'll be sad, then all of Equestria will be sad and if..."
Applejack's hoof stopped Pinkie from talking. "Sugar cube, I don't
how does it feel but I'm sure about somethin' it'll hurt. A lot."

I sighed. "It's gonna be OK. I have to do it as quick as I can so I won't fall for him more." I said sadly. "But what I'm looking after is the answer from Hurricane. Since Soarin is one of Hurricane's best friends, it'll be very hard to get answer out of his mouth."

"So... any way?" asked Twilight.

"If there's one thing he loves, it's food. I'm not very good at cooking cause I've just started learning it."

"Ah can help ya in this one," said Applejack.

"Great! So can you make a good meal and I'll get it to him?"

"What? No sugar cube. I ain't helpin' ya lyin' but ah help ya if ya want me to teach ya how to cook."

I sighed. Sometimes Applejack was way too honest over things. "OK. I'll come to your barn tomorrow."

"And I can help you in making your brother saying the fact. I know some ways that can work very good darling," said Rarity.

"Fine. Thanks Rares."
"And I think I'll be able to help you in finding that mare. By the way, I have princess Celestia's help," said Twilight with a wink.

"And whenever you find that mare, I'll make sure you smile!" said Pinkie with a warm smile that I returned.

"And I can help you in whatever I can," said Fluttershy.

"Thanks girls. Thank you all," I said with a sincere smile.

"You're welcome darling. We'll do anything for our good friend," said Rarity.

"I'll go grab a soda to drink. I'll be right back," I said as I stood up.

I walked to the table with drinks on it. There were every kind of drinks on it. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic and I poured some of the non-alcoholic ones for myself cause I didn't really like the alcoholic drinks.

It was then that I saw it...

I wouldn't lie if I say it was the most terrifying scene of my life...

"Oh... I love you soooo much Soarin," said a mare who was standing in front of Soarin. Then she started walking to Soarin's side while brushing her tail under his chin.
Soarin who was visibly enchanted smirked. "You know what? I love you too." Then he winked at her. "How about hanging out sometime?"

The next thing I knew was shattering sound of my glass of soda that hit the ground.

And beneath a minute the whole room went quiet...
