The Race

It’s been one week since Dash won the best young flyer competition and that was a mistake. Ever since she won, she has been bragging about how she won and how she is the fast and best flyer in Equestria, in fucking Equestria. Has seen challenge every pegasus and beaten them? Hell no. Anyway. It’s been driving every pony crazy, especially the pegasus in town. I guess they don’t like her bragging that much and I can’t say I blame them. I wish I could challenge her and win so she would shut up but that’s not going to happened.

Then a pony challenge her, Ace and boy was I surprised. Ace isn’t the type to do this, but I guess he’s tried of Dash’s boasting, like the rest of the town. Being Dash, she accepted his challenge.

Me and Falco was walking towards Sweet Apple acres, I was trying to enjoy the day but it’s a little difficult when Falco won’t shut up. “I am just saying Fox, this thing you are doing isn’t healthy for you.” I wish he could shut up he sounds like me dad and it’s creeping me out. “What about that mare?” Ever since Blitz went back Sun shore city, Falco had trying to get me to date a new mare and let me tell you, it’s getting tiresome.

I had to plink a couple of times when he said that. We had arrived at the farm and I had no idea when we arrived or what Falco was talking about. “What? Who?” Was all I could say.

“That mare over there.” He was pointing at mare, so I decided to have a look. I think I almost had a heart attack when I saw her. She was unicorn white snow white fur, her hair and tail was two shades of pink. She was wearing a white t shirt and a blue skirt. I had to admit it, she was beautiful. She was standing a little father from the main crowd. “It’s about time.”

I look at Falco. “What the hell are you talking about?”

“That you are taking interest in another mare.” I looked at him as he had gone mad. “Don’t give me that look, just go and talk to her.” Before I could react, he grabbed my arm and almost threw me at her. he might have been working at AJ’s farm for a week, but he is strong.

Somehow, he managed to make sure that I ‘bumped’ into her, that made her lose balance and fell to the ground. “I am so sorry miss I didn’t mean to do this.” I told her while helping her off the ground. “Someone pushed me into you, and I am going to kill that pony later.” I looked over to where Falco had run towards, he was laughing while running towards where the crowd.

“It’s ok, I usually don’t meet other like this. I guess it’s a first time for…” She stopped talking when she saw me.

She just kept looking at my face. “What? Do I have something on my face?”

“What happened to your eye?”

“Oh that, a griffin did that.” That just confused her. “Long story short, she blamed me for something I didn’t do and gave me this scar.” I told her while pointing at my bad eye.

“That’s not very nice.”

I couldn’t help but smile of what she said. “No, I guess not.” I decided to give her a hand shake. “Fox McCloud.”

She shook it. “Fleur de Lis.” Where have I heard that name? Who cares? “Now that we know each other names, might telling me why your friend, which you are going too kill later. Pushed you into me and managed to knock me to the ground?”

Should I tell a stranger why Falco did what he did? What hell not. “He is trying to sett me up with a date with a mare, I just broke up with another mare.”

“That’s nice of him.” I wouldn’t say that. “Just out of curiosity, how long since did you break up? You don’t have to answer.”

“Two weeks.”

Her eyes widen when I said that.” “That’s not very long.” I just nodded when she said that. “And he want’s you to ask me out?” She hit the nail on the head there.

“Yeah. Look, you look like a nice mare, but I am not ready for dating right now, that if you had said yes.”

She gave me a smile. “I understand.” She then looked at the crowed. “Mind telling what’s going on here?”

That just confused me. “You don’t know?” She shook her head. “I don’t mean to be a jerk, but where have you been the last week?”

“I just moved her three days ago.” That explain it.

“The short story is.” I started to explain as we walk towards the start line. “A week ago. Dash, the one with rainbow hair, won a competition and that went to her head. She has been bragging for a week now and we are feed up with, then Ace, he the one with ice wings. He challenged Dash to a race and here we are.” I am not sure if she believed me or not, but she nodded.

When we arrived I could hear Sunset talking. “Alright you two, this is a race around Ponyville and the first one who has flown around the town, and back, is the winner.” She then stood in front of Dash and Ace, who was standing under the entrance. “There are ponies around edge of town to make sure that none of you are talking short cuts, that’s mean no flying through town to get a head of the other.”

Then Dash had to say something. “Oh, please Sunset, I don’t have to cheat to win this.” Why does she have that ego?

“She thinks highly of herself.” Said Fleur.

I looked over to Fleur. “No, she just has a big ego.” That made her giggle a little which is weird, I didn’t try to be funny, just honest.

Back to Sunset. “I don’t care Dash, you are not allowed to cheat in the race and if you do you will lose automatic, that’s also will happened if you are using your sonic boom.”

Dash just waved her hand back and forward. “I don’t need the sonic boom to win, I am the fast around her.” She then looked over to Ace, who had gotten ready by bending down in a running position. “I see you are ready to lose.” She got ready herself.

I know Ace a little, but I don’t know if he’s fast enough to Dash. Best to go to a source. “Pinkie.” Right after I said that, she appeared in front of me.

“Yes, Fox?” Fleur just started at Pinkie with widen eyes, probably wondering how she did that.

“Do you think Ace can beat Dash?”

She put a hand on her chin.” I don’t know, we have date a dew times, but he doesn’t talk about himself that much, I have seen him fly but not as fast as Dash. Who knows what will happened.” That didn’t help much.

“Thanks Pinkie.” It didn’t feel like she help but I thank her anyway, she gave me a smile, as she always does. She took one look at Fleur before going, she didn’t look happy. “Did something happened between you two?” I asked the unicorn.

“I am not sure, I think so. When I moved here, this Pinkie came to my house and said that she would throw me a party which I thought was pointless.” That’s new. “I then told her that I didn’t want a party, but she insisted. Then I told her that if she threw me a party I won’t show up.”

“You told her that?” Fleur nodded. “What happened?”

“She kept on insisted and I told her that it was pointless, eventually she gave up and she haven’t talk to me since then.” Wow, I didn’t think it was possible, but it has happened, Pinkie didn’t throw a party. But something told me that it was more to this. Just who is the unicorn.

I had to think about this another time, the race was about to started. I watch as Sunset raised both of her arms. “Alright, you both know the rules. If you are both ready.” They nodded. “Then… GO.” She dropped both arms and both pegasus was on their way, they flew so fast of the started line that they almost knocked some ponies over. “Come on, I just had gotten my hair like I wanted it.” Well, Rarity is here.

“Where is every pony? This town looks like a ghost town.” Asked a female pegasus no one in particular as she walked down the street of Ponyville. “I wish I had come sooner.” She stopped to have a look around, she then spotted some ponies standing not far from her, she decided to ask them what was going on.

When the Pegasus reached them, she saw that they were standing not far from the town’s border. She walked over to another Pegasus, which had grey fur white blond hair and tail. “It can’t be, Dizzy?”

The pegasus turned around when her names were spoken. “Dawn Star? What a pleasant surprise, what are you doing here?” Dizzy said with a smile.

“I am here to have a talk with Dash, do you know where she is?”

“Yeah, she is racing another pegasus around Ponyville.”

The pony Dawn Star raised a brown when she heard that. “Why is Dash racing another Pegasus around this town?”

“Because he challenger her.”

Dawn Star couldn’t help but smile of what Dizzy said. “You have a point there.” She was about to ask why this pegasus challenge Dash when she heard cheering to her left, she then saw two Pegasus fly past her, she recognized one of the as Dash thanks to her hair and another one she hasn’t seen before. “Dizzy, do you know where the finishing line is?”

“Yes, it’s at Sweet Apple acres. Just head in the opposite direction.”

“Thanks Dizzy.” Dawn thanked her and flew toward the farm. ‘I hope I am no too late.’ She thought.

It didn’t take that long before those two were in sighed again, both are fucking fast. I think it took them about three minutes, to be honest, I had no idea. When I could see them, I saw that Dash was first and she had a smug smile on her face, it was like she had won already. Then all of sudden, Ace flew right past her like it was nothing. He just left her in the dust, or snow in his case, he flew over the finishing line leaving everyone speechless.

He then took a loop and then landed not far from me and the others. I don’t know of the other, but I trouble processing what just happened, I looked over the crowed and they were speechless. There were around fifty here and half of them had their mouths hanging wide opened.

Pinkie was the first one to recover, she ran over to Ace and gave him a hug. “That was amazing, you just flew past Dash like it was nothing.”

“It was nothing.” He said in his humble voice.

“Nothing? You just flew past her like that.” I told him while snapping my fingers. “Unfortunately, by beating Dash, you have no created another problem.” That created confusion around me, I just pointed my thumb towards an unhappy pegasus, Dash. She was angry, is there one thing I know about her and that she hates to lose. She just flew of, angry as hell.

“Should we go after her?” Shy asked.

“There’s no point, when she is like that there’s no point talking to her. Let her cool of then we can try and talk to her.” They didn’t like it, but they knew I was right.

Dash had landed far from Ponyville, she was angry that she had lost to Ace. “Damn it, I was supposed to be the fastest, not him.” She was on her knees and she was hitting the ground with her fist, tears were starting to from in her eyes. “It’s not fair.” She hit the ground. “I wasn’t suppose to lose.” She hit the ground again.

“So, this is was happened to the best student I had in years, she a cry baby.” Came voice behind Dash.

“Get lost you…” Her words died in her mouth when Dash saw who it was, standing behind her was a pegasus mare with dark green fur, her mane and tail was light green. “Dawn Star.” Dawn was standing there, whit her arms crossed, and she had a disappointing look on her face. “What are you doing here?” Dash asked her former teacher.

“What am I doing here? I came here to congratulate my former student with her victory in the best young flyer competition and make sure that it didn’t go to her head, unfortunately I was to late. Didn’t I teach you that it’s ok to lose once in a while?” Dash looked down on the ground. “Apparently not.”

Dash got up. “You know that I hate to lose.” Dash shouted at her former teacher.

“Of course, I know that, you got mad every time lost in flight school and I had to remind you every time it was ok to lose, that’s part of life.” Dawn let out a frustrated sigh, she pinched her nose. “I saw that you lost to that stallion and I wish you remember what I taught you all those years ago but apparently that was a waisted off time, you are so much better than this Dash and I hope that you would understand that.” She looked at Dash, who was looking at the ground again, with her ears folded. Dawn put a hand on her shoulder. “You were my best student and I hope you would honour what I taught you but this, this it not the way.” Dawn took a few steps back and then she flew away, leaving Dash alone with her thought.

What a day, Dash loses to Ace, I almost got a date thanks to Falco, who I am going to kick out of my house when he arrives. after the race I decided to go back to my house, before that. Fleur suggested that we should go out for a café, I said I need to think about it. I think she was a little disappointment, but I didn’t care at the moment. I was lying on my couch, again. This time I was waiting, waiting to go to work at the club. It was Friday and that means work. I was also waiting for Falco to come back I hope he did, so I could kick him out of my house.

I got up when I heard the door open, I knew it wasn’t Shadow, considering she was having a sleepover at Dizzy’s house. I saw that bastard walk in and it didn’t look like he was in a good mood, but I didn’t care.

He sat down in the chair. “What the hell do you think your doing?” He just gave me a confused look. “Do you think your welcome after what you did to me today?” I said while sitting up.

“Look, I was trying…”

I held up a hand to cut him off. “I don’t want to hear it I want you out of this house right now.”

“Your kicking me out?”

“Hell yes, do you really think I want you in this house after what you did? I want you out right now.” I told him while pointing at the door.

“Where am I supposed to go? I don’t know anyone here.”

“I don’t give a fuck I just want you out.”

“Oh, come on.” He got up. “I was just trying to help you.”

“Help me?” I got up so we were face to face. “You pushed me into a mare I didn’t know and then you ran away, I don’t call that helping me, I call that to humiliate a friend.” I almost shouted everything, but I managed to hold back.

He took a step back. “I admit that I did was wrong, but I am just worried about, ever since Blitz left you have only been lying on the couch. You barely leave the house and the girls are worried about you, especially Fluttershy.” I was taken back when I heard that. “She keep asking me how you are doing and I have to keep lying to her that you are fine, when you are not.” I sat down on the couch.

“I didn’t think they care that much.”

“Well, they do.” He sat down. “Even Ace and the pony that was hired to kill you have asked me how you are doing.”

I was sure if I heard him right. “Did you just say that Abyssal is worried about me.” He nodded. “Why? I don’t know him, why would he care about me?”

Falco shrugged his shoulders. “Beats me, he has ask about you. Maybe he wants to be friends with you, I don’t know. Beside this, are you still going to kick me out?”

“No, just don’t that crap you did early today.”

“Got it.”

Then the silence came, to break it I decided to ask him something. “How did your date with Octavia go?”

He sighed. “Not good, she said I wasn’t her type and I don’t blame her. Maybe my luck in the opposite sex is just like you.” Thanks for that one.

I had another question. “Say, you never told me what happened those two months you were staying in Manehatten.”

He put a hand to his chin. “Well…”

Author's Note:

Yes, I know that I didn't write that much about the race. I tried but it was difficult. It is one of my weaker chapters.

Next chapter is going to be about Falco, I am going to write happened to him when he arrived in Equestria.
