CH 34- The Day Of Arrival

“Hello?”

“Rainbow? Is that you? Do you have any idea how worried I was?”

“Um…”

“No. This time, YOU don’t say anything. This time it’s my turn to tell you something so listen closely. All I wanna say is that I… will be back home tomorrow at 4:00 A.M.” A long beep was heard on Rainbow’s phone as the mare dropped the phone but she didn’t cared even a bit ‘cause she was busy wrapping her head around the new information.

On the other side, Soarin was smiling excitedly at the phone. He couldn’t keep himself from not grinning like an idiot. By the way, the mare that he didn’t expect to call had just called him. By the way, he was only few hours away from seeing his mare again. Only few hours away…


Beep. Beep. Beep.

‘UGH! WHY ALARM CLOCKS HAVE TO BE THIS DAMN ANNOYING!’ that was the first thing that came to my head after I woke up with the annoying sound. However, the second thought made me forgot about the alarm clock entirely. That was why I jumped high in the sky…er, cloud house, and squealed with happiness.

Who would have thought that I, the I’m-always-awesome Rainbow Dash would one day squeal with so much happiness only for a stallion? Well, nopony sure thought that it would ever happen but I didn’t care even a bit. There, at the cloud house, nopony could see me and even if a huge crowd of ponies were watching, I still wouldn’t care. There were a lot more important things there. Like me, finding out my feelings for Soarin. Like him surprising me when he said that he’ll come today. And the most important thing, my own wedding which was only few days away!

And with all the reasons together, how could I care about all the unimportant things like waking up so early? I. DIDN’T. MIND. IT. AT. AAAAAALL!

All of the happiness inside of me was making get extra energy. I never remember myself having a good temper when I woke up early in the morning but that day I was doing everything fast and with a smile on my face. And although I wouldn’t admit it out loud, but deep inside I knew it was all because of the same pony that was coming today.

Before I even realized, I was fully ready with a bright smile and spirit, ready to see the stallion that caused all these changes. I opened the door and met with the dark sky and shiny stars. Outside, weather was cold. Well, it was obvious since the cloud house was right next to the bay and it was middle of night so the weather was chilly.

I shivered a little and took off from the house. My smile deepened as I approached Ponyville that was getting bigger and bigger as I got closer. The small village was quiet and there was no sound because everypony were in their houses sleeping peacefully. Train station was probably the same.

Well, that was I thought and oh, I was so wrong. Train station, to say in simple words, was filled with all kinds of fans and fanfillies that were screaming for no reason. I raised an eyebrow and checked station’s clock. It was a quarter to 4 so the train hadn’t arrived yet. There was no train in the station either. Then why were they screaming? Must have gone crazy… I landed at the back of the screaming crowd and looked at them with surprise.

“HEY RAINBOW!” somepony shouted through the loud voice.

I turned my head to the sound and saw Cloudy and Speedy waving at me. “Hey guys! What are you doing here?” I asked.

“Well, I’m here for Hurricane of course,” replied Speedy.

“And there’s no question that I’m here to save my soon-to-be sister-in-law,” said Cloudy with pride.

“Save me? From what?”

“The crowd of Soarin’s fanfillies and lovers that’ll kill you if they found out you have something with him of course,” answered Cloudy.

“It… doesn’t sound really good when you put it that way,” I said.

“Well, it didn’t supposed to make you feel good or anything. I was just trying to be truthful,” she said with a shrug. “But don’t worry. They’re not THAT scary. Let’s just move to the front line.” She grabbed my hoof and dragged me along her. She pushed through the screaming fans as she said phrases like ‘sorry’, ‘Oops!’ and ‘It’s coming!’ and made her way through the crowd. Ponies were glaring at us as we passed. I just rolled my eyes and let them do whatever they want. Finally, Cloudy stopped in the second line with a bright smile.

“Didn’t you want to go to the front line?” I asked.

“Yeah, but we better not to,” she answered.

“Why?”

“Those girls in the front line are really mean. They’ll never let a new comer stop at their line.”

Their line?”

“As they claim.”

“That’s ridiculous. I’ll fix it,” I said with a frown. I pushed through the ponies and stepped on the front line.

“Where do you think you’re going?” said a mare who was standing there with a humiliating tone.

“And who do you think you are?” I answered her with the same manner.

“HA! Who do you think you are?” she said.

“Somepony important enough to stand in the first line,” I said with a smirk. There couldn’t anypony more important than Soarin’s fiancée there.

“Oh yeah? Do you know where is here?” asked the mare as she scanned me from head to hoof. “This the front line of Soarin’s fans. Who do you think you are that you think you’re important to stand here? Soarin’s girlfriend?” she said sarcastically. Then she and some ponies that were standing behind her laughed at her ‘joke’.

My smirk got bigger and I answered, “Even more important than some girlfriend.”

“What are you gonna say next?” said one of the mare’s friends from the back.

“I’m her wife and I’m three months pregnant with his baby!” said another mare with a dramatic tone and made those ponies laugh even harder.

“I may not be pregnant with his baby or his wife, at least not yet, but I can guarantee that once he’ll see me, he’ll be even happier than you idiots,” I said with a winning grin upon my face.

Their laughter died down and some of them stared at me with a look that was clearly shouting ‘What the hell?’ and the mare who started to tease me in the first place stared at me coldly. She scoffed and said, “Look kid, you have a good imagination and all but just let the REAL fans stay here. You’d better go back to your dream land and continue your sweet dreaming.”

“Now listen up grandma, I think it’s you who should go to bed and continue dreaming because in reality, he’ll never be yours,” I said with a frown. That idiot was really picking me on.

“I said-” she tried to say.

“STOP IT!” shouted Cloudy from the back. She came to the first line with a deep frown and glared at the teasing mare. “Don’t you think you idiots had enough? Front line doesn’t belong to you, you know,” she said to her. Then she looked at two guards that were keeping the fans from going further and said, “Excuse me sir, can my sister and I stand in the first line my name is-”

The guard interrupted and said, “Of course Ms. Wing.”

“Thank you sir,” said Cloudy. The mares that were teasing us earlier were looking at us with either surprised look or with a deep frown.

“Why did you lie? I’m not you’re sister!” I said to Cloudy.

“Of course you are. Just not yet. Didn’t you forget that you’re gonna be my sister-in-law, did you?”

“Of course no but why?”

“Why what?”

“Why did you say I’m your sister?”

“That’s obvious. So the guards would let you stand here. They only let family and relatives of the Wonderbolts stand in the first line without permission.”

“HEY! Am I not Soarin’s family? I’m gonna be closer than anypony else to him. Why didn’t he add my name to the list?”

Gonna be, not yet. Besides, he didn’t even think he’ll ever see you after he left.”

“What?”

“Believe me. He really thought so. He left me a letter before he went away and he explained everything to me. Including the fact that you’ll probably run away after he went away!”

“You said he told you everything, right?”

“Yeah, why?”

“Did he talk about a mysterious mare he used to love or something like this?”

“A mysterious mare? Tell me about it.”

“Well, I heard from someponies that there was this mare that he fell for when he was signing autographs and then she suddenly left him and never came back.”

Cloudy stared at me for a few seconds and then burst in laughter. Her laughter made me feel dumb. Did I say anything wrong? “Oh my gosh! Is that what you heard?” she said as she snickered.

“Well… yeah?” I said doubtfully. “Is it wrong or anything?” I asked with a hopeful tone. Currently, that mare was my only problem. If she didn’t exist I wouldn’t hesitate to marry Soarin!

“No, it’s not wrong. It’s just… that mare won’t make a problem for you. You know her very well. You lived your entire life with her. Just… don’t worry. If you really love Soarin, don’t hesitate to show it to him just because of some mare you don’t even know. Even if there will be a mare, you can make him forget about her. There’s just no way he wouldn’t fall for you. If he didn’t love you, then who cares? You two are for each other so you can easily show him what love really means,” she said with a smile.

“Once again, what you said is all correct,” I said with as I smiled back.

I was about to think about what Cloudy said when somepony screamed. “ONLY FIVE MORE MINUTES LEFT!” After her, other fanfillies, let out excited screams and clapped their hooves happily.

I smiled at them. I could remember myself with the same excitement when I stood in the line to get autographs from Wonderbolts. I was just a teenager who was practically in love with the Wonderbolts.

I even remembered the day I wanted to get an autograph from Soarin. He was kinda my favorite cause he was almost at my age and yet, he was one of the very good Wonderbolts.

I had heard that he’d only give autograph to three ponies and I wished that I’d be one of the ponies to get an autograph. I could clearly remember how he gave the first autograph to Clear Skies who was always all over the Wonderbolts especially Soarin. I could also remember how cold he was looking at her.

The next autograph belonged to a little filly who was jumping up and down and although it was hard, but I could clearly see how his face changed from cold to a friendly one as he talked to the little filly. Soarin treating me the same as the little filly was the only wish I had back then.

I could also remember how frustrated and angry I was when I saw Soarin almost got passed me without even taking a look! That was when I gathered all of my courage and of course, voice, and called him. He turned around and looked at me and I could see the bewildered look on his face. And surprisingly, he treated me even better than the little filly!

But what made me interested was when he said ‘hope to see you again’. Although I never said a thing but it felt like I had made a promise with him and I just had to do it. And I did! I went to all of the shows I could go to and met him after every show. But then Hurricane said that I’d better not to go there and so I didn’t go there anymore.

Wait… this story seemed so familiar… where did I hear it?

I just shrugged. Although it seemed soooo familiar, I couldn’t remember it at the moment so why trouble myself? By the way, there was only five minutes left. Only five minutes…
