Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy taking care of each other

  • ...

Passionate Pegasi

It was another particularly rainy day in Ponyville. Fluttershy, with her foreleg in a sling, was able to hobble around the house to make sure everything was going smoothly, even if she couldn't actively do too much. It even helped that she could hover around.

"Okay, I think that's everything.... Do you see anything, Angel? Any sign of her?" she asked the little bunny hopefully.

Angel glanced this way and that, but saw nothing. He shrugged and shook his head.

Fluttershy pouted a little, but nodded. "All right then... I'll just make us all a quick lunch. Does salad sound okay?"

Angel nodded, frowning a bit. But then he brought over his dish and patiently waited for his food.

With that, Fluttershy went to work on preparing a salad. Nothing much, just some lettuce, a few pre-cut tomatoes, daisies, merrigolds, and a dash of croutons. When she brought Angel's food to him, she smiled and added a little cherry on top of his.

"Just because you've been so helpful. Thank you, Angel," She smiled at him.

Angel smiled and took the cherry, eating it first before digging into the rest of his food.

"Aww..." Fluttershy giggled, and proceeded to eat her own food.

Knock knock knock!

Eager, Fluttershy just about zipped toward the door, only for Angel to hold her back by her tail. "Oh....sorry," She smiled sheepishly.

Angel wagged his paw and "tsk"ed at Fluttershy, before hopping over to the door and answering it himself.

"Hee...sorry again," Fluttershy straightened and sat back down, looking over to the door to see who was there.

"Hey, Fluttershy," Rainbow Dash stood outside the door, soaked from mane to tail. "Boy, the rain started really coming down out there!"

Angel hopped aside to allow the cyan Pegasus to enter the cottage.

"Oh, Dashie!" Fluttershy flew over to her, excited to see her and yet concerned. "You're all wet, you poor thing...oh, I'd better find you a towel!"

"Nah, don't worry about me, Fluttershy..." Rainbow Dash shook herself off like a dog and came into the cottage. "I'm fine..." Even Angel shook his head and nodded for Fluttershy to go get her a towel, not wanting the rainbow-maned daredevil to catch a cold.

"Oh, but you'll catch a cold! Wait here!" Fluttershy went off to her bathroom, and came back with a warm, fluffy towel, which she placed over Rainbow Dash. "There you go...now you can get all dry and cozy."

"Thanks, Fluttershy!" Rainbow Dash offered her friend a grateful smile, trotting over to the couch with the towel wrapped around her shoulders.

"You're welcome....I'm happy you're here..." Fluttershy admitted with a little blush. "So...are you hungry?"

"Sure, I could use a little something to eat..." Rainbow Dash nodded, rubbing her mane dry with the towel. "What's on the menu?"

"Oh, I made Angel and I a little salad. But if you'd like something else, I can make it for you!" Fluttershy offered.

"No, salad's good," Rainbow Dash nodded, the towel wrapped around her shoulders again. "Can't eat too much. Gotta keep up my figure for the upcoming Wonderbolts tryouts!"

"Oh, I see." Fluttershy nodded, making a note to add some protein extract to the salad.

She gathered up some leftover ingredients, and briskly prepared a salad for her. With some added protein extract, before forgetting to add some.

"Here you go!" Fluttershy gave her a bowl of a cherry tomato salad, one of her favourites.

"Mmmm, thanks a lot!" Rainbow Dash dug into the salad, but without making too much of a mess.

"Oh, you're welcome..." Fluttershy then finished her own food.

"Awesomely delicious, as always!" Rainbow Dash declared, as she finished her salad.

"Thank you..." Fluttershy smiled, pleased with herself as she gathered the dishes, putting them in the sink. She then flew over and sat down on the couch next to her best friend. "So....how has your day been so far?"

"Eh, not too bad." Rainbow Dash nuzzled Fluttershy briefly as she sat down beside her. "Managed to have an awesome flying session with Spitfire!

"Oh, that's good to hear! How did it go?" Fluttershy smiled, keenly interested.

"Pretty good! We had a couple of races. She beat me by this much, but I left her eating my clouds after that!" Rainbow Dash smirked, leaning back with her hooves behind her head.

Fluttershy giggled, shaking her head. "Oh, well I'm glad you guys had fun!"

Rainbow Dash grinned. "You bet we did! I am so READY for the next Wonderbolts tryouts!"

"Oh, I'm sure you'll do wonderfully! Especially since you've already had your hoof in the door." Fluttershy beamed.

"I hope so! You know it's my one greatest dream to be a part of the greatest aerial stunt team in all of Equestria!" Rainbow Dash winked.

"Absolutely..." Fluttershy nodded, and gave her a little nuzzle. "And I know you can do it."

"Awww..." Rainbow Dash blushed and nuzzled back. "You don't know how happy I am to have your support, pal."

"Oh, I'll always support you, Rainbow Dash... Whatever your dream is in life." Fluttershy smiled. "...I just hope you won't forget me, or the rest of us...when you join them."

"Forget you?" Rainbow Dash threw her foreleg around Fluttershy's shoulders. "How could I ever forget friends as awesome as you and everypony else?!"

Fluttershy blushed, and giggled a little, snuggling into her. "Awwww... I suppose I worry sometimes. I didn't mean to doubt you.... I suppose we'll just all miss you."

Rainbow Dash chuckled, nuzzling into her. "Awww, of course you'll miss me, because I'll miss you, too! But just because I'll be one of them doesn't mean I'll forget about the ponies that helped me get there, you know?"

"You're right...you are the Element of Loyalty," Fluttershy nuzzled her back. "And we'll always be here when you come back, proud of you."

"I know you will," Rainbow Dash smiled at her best friend. "And hey, I'll make sure I get you guys killer seats to any Wonderbolts shows, of course!"

"Aww...you'd do that?" Fluttershy smiled brightly at the idea. "I'd be able to cheer you on!"

"Of course I would!" Rainbow Dash grinned proudly. "Why wouldn't I want my very best friends to see the greatest Wonderbolt ever in action?!"

"Hee! That's true...it'd be an honour for us," Fluttershy beamed. "Well...we'll all always be there to cheer you on..."

"I know you will," Rainbow Dash nodded. "And I also know you'll be cheering the loudest!"

"Hee...yes!" Fluttershy nodded. "I will be, I hope!"

"If it was anything like at the Fastest Flyer competition, then I know you will!" Rainbow Dash nudged her playfully.

"Oh...so you did hear me...." Fluttershy looked away bashfully.

"You know I'm only teasing!" Rainbow Dash giggled, nuzzling her.

"I know....." Fluttershy nuzzled back.

"So, how's the leg doing today?" The cyan Pegasus glanced at her friend's foreleg.

"Oh, it's all right. The swelling has gone down since it happened, and it's not as pained. I just have to keep it in a sling until I can move it again," Fluttershy indicated to it.

"That's good news!" Rainbow Dash nodded. "So when are you supposed to go get it looked at again?"

"The doctor asked me to go in tomorrow, actually. ...Um...would you...come with me?" The ceamy yellow Pegasus requested sheepishly.

"Sure, of cours!" The rainbow-maned daredevil grinned. "I'm curious to know how that leg's healing up, too!"

"Really...? Oh, thank you, Dashie!" Fluttershy brought her good foreleg around her best friend, with more nuzzles. "I feel better knowing you're there...."

"Heh heh, not a problem, Fluttershy," Rainbow Dash nuzzled her best friend back. "I'll be right by your side."

"Thank you!" Fluttershy faced her then, looking into her eyes. "You've been such a great help to me...."

"Hey, what are best friends for?" Rainbow Dash grinned. "You know I'm always gonna watch your back. I don't know how many times I have to say it."

"I know...but I appreciate it so much," Fluttershy gave a beaming smile and then nuzzled noses with her.

A scarlet blush spread its way across Rainbow Dash's cheeks as she returned the gesture. "I'm always happy to help a friend..."

Fluttershy giggled and kissed her on the nose. "Me too..."

Rainbow Dash's cyan cheeks were practically purple now. "Heh heh...and that's why we're best friends..."

"Yes, best of friends...you were my first friend when I was a filly...." Fluttershy smiled warmly.

"Who could forget?" Rainbow Dash smiled fondly. "Then there was that day I stood up to those jerks that were picking on you, and then raced them to defend your honor!"

"That's right..." Fluttershy nuzzled their cheeks, giggling.

"And hey, if it weren't for that race..." Rainbow Dash twisted a bit so her flank, adorned with a rainbow-bolt cutie mark, was visible to the creamy-yellow Pegasus. "Then none of us would've gotten our cutie marks when we did..."

Fluttershy admired it for a second and then smiled brightly, laying their foreheads together. "Like I said before, if it wasn't for you...."

Rainbow Dash chuckled softly, gazing right into her best friend's eyes. "None of us would've had our cutie marks..."

"And we all wouldn't be friends..." Fluttershy's voice lowered to a soft little coo.

"Heh heh...and I can't imagine my life now without all of you!" Rainbow Dash murmured, planting a sweet kiss on Fluttershy's cheek.

"I can't imagine my life without all of you, either..." Fluttershy's eyes twinkled with bright happiness.

"Then we're in agreement that our friendship is the best thing to ever happen to any of us..."

"Oh, undoubtedly!"

Knock knock knock!

"Now, who in the hay could that be?!"

A mild pout crossed Fluttershy's features as she packed down a bit. "I don't know...I wasn't expecting anypony.."

Knock knock knock!

"Hello? Is anypony in there?"

Rainbow Dash got up from the couch and trotted to the door, slowly opening it. Standing outside, wearing a rain coat, was a dark-orange Unicorn with a tied-back blonde mane and tail. She was using her magic to levitate an umbrella, and was carrying a brown paper bag in her mouth.

"Oh, hello Tiger Stripes!" Fluttershy smiled, flying off the couch. "You came....please, come in!"

"Hello, Fluttershy!" Tiger Stripes trotted inside the cottage, closing up her umbrella and hanging it near the door, along with her rain coat. "How is your leg?" She then noticed Rainbow Dash and smiled. "Hello, my name is Tiger Stripes!"

"The name's Rainbow Dash. Fastest Flyer in Equestria! Maybe you've heard of me?" Rainbow Dash boldly introduced herself to the gourmet chef Unicorn.

"She's my best friend." Fluttershy added in, coming up to them. "Oh, and my leg is all right...it isn't as swollen or pained now."

"How lovely!" Tiger Stripes nodded to Rainbow Dash. "It's very nice to meet you, at last!" She turned to Fluttershy. "Oh, that's wonderful news. I'm glad to hear you're healing so well."

"Ahhh, so you're the gourmet chef I've been hearing about!" Rainbow Dash grinned. "What's in the bag? Samples of your cooking, I hope?"

"Ooh, whatever it is, it smells nice....what is it? If you don't mind my asking..." Fluttershy said sweetly.

"I'm glad you asked." Tiger Stripes set down the bag and opened it, removing a freshly-baked apple pie. "I baked my specialty apple pie for you. I thought it would make a lovely get-well gift."

"Mmm-mmm! That smells awesome!" Rainbow Dash remarked, sniffing the pie. "Does it taste as awesome as it smells?"

"Ooohh!" Fluttershy smelled it, practically drooling. "Thank you, Tiger Stripes! Please, bring it to the table and we'll all sit down to some!"

"Of course!" Tiger Stripes nodded, levitating the pie to the table with her magic. "I think you'll both enjoy this!"

"It certainly smells like it..." Fluttershy beamed, and hovered up to get some plates and spoons.

"Mm-hmm!" Tiger Stripes smiled, levitating a knife to slice the pie.

"Oh, boy...can't wait to taste this..." Rainbow Dash sat at the table, her mouth watering. "Surely you're not a gourmet chef for nothing!"

"You'll know it once you try her cooking more and more..." Fluttershy said, placing down the plates and spoons down.

"That's right!" Tiger Stripes said proudly, slicing the pie. "After all, I didn't get my cutie mark by simply bragging about my cooking!"

"If that were possible..." Fluttershy giggled, shaking her head.

"But of course it isn't!" Tiger Stripes giggled, placing a slice of pie on each plate. "I discovered my love for cooking when I was just a filly, and it wasn't long after that when I got my cutie mark!"

"Awesome story, Stripes!" Rainbow Dash chuckled. "Now, let's taste this awesome pie!"

"You first, Dashie..." Fluttershy smiled, giggling behind her hoof.

"Yes, please! Go on, Rainbow Dash!" Tiger Stripes encouraged.

"Don't mind if I do!" Rainbow Dash took a bite of the pie. "Mmmm! It's even better than I thought!"

"Isn't it wonderful?" Fluttershy agreed, taking a bite as well. "Mmmm, just as always! It's perfect!"

"Thank you, girls!" Tiger Stripes took a bite of her own slice. "Mmmm...got the apples from Sweet Apple Acres, of course!"

"Our friend Applejack lives there!" Rainbow Dash said, taking another bite. "Did you talk to her?"

“I did talk to her, yes!” Tiger Stripes confirmed with a nod.

"I should have known, these apples do have that Sweet Apple Acres flavour..." Fluttershy said, taking another bite.

"The apples from Flower Valley are wonderful, too!" Tiger Stripes pointed out. "Have either of you ever tried them?"

"I think AJ's farmhand Blushy brought some fruit from the valley, but I don't remember trying a Flower Valley apple..." Rainbow Dash said after a moment of thought.

"Oh, I have..." Fluttershy nodded. "They are wonderful!"

"Yes they are!" Tiger Stripes giggled. "I like to use Flower Valley apples for my pie, but now I think I'll be alternating between Flower Valley apples and Sweet Apple Acres apples!"

"Oh yes, both kinds are wonderful in their own ways. It'll be great to have a bit of both!" Fluttershy giggled, eating some more.

"I'll have to make you some peach cobbler using Flower Valley peaches!" Tiger Stripes offered with a smile.

"Peaches, too?" Rainbow Dash blinked, eating more pie. "Flower Valley grows everything, doesn't it?"

"They grow so many things!" Fluttershy marveled. "I'd love to try your peach cobbler, Tiger Stripes! Ooh, have you ever managed to get your hooves on the Zap Apple Jam?"

"Uh-huh!" Tiger Stripes nodded. "I've even gotten my hooves on actual Zap Apples! My friends couldn't stop raving about the Zap Apple pie I baked!"

"You made Zap Apple Pie?" Fluttershy's jaw dropped.

"You bet!" Tiger Stripes giggled. "Even my friends from all around loved them!"

"Oooh....will you make some the next time they harvest the Zap Apples?" Fluttershy requested, eager.

"Sure, if I'm in town!" Tiger Stripes nodded, smiling.

"Awesome!" Rainbow Dash finished her slice of pie. "Can I get another slice?"

Fluttershy giggled, finishing her pie and gently pushing her plate aside. "You really enjoyed it, didn't you, Rainbow?"

"Certainly, Rainbow Dash!" Smiling, Tiger Stripes cut another slice of pie and placed it on the daredevil's plate. "I'm glad you're enjoying it!" "Hay yeah!" Rainbow Dash nodded. "It's awesomely delicious!"

"So, how are things?" Fluttershy looked over to Tiger Stripes curiously.

"Oh, wonderful!" Tiger Stripes smiled. "I may be opening my very own restaurant in Canterlot soon!"

"Canterlot?!" Rainbow Dash exclaimed. "Wow! You really ARE a gourmet chef, aren't you?!"

"Ooooh, your very own restaurant in Canterlot! That should be a great opportunity for you!" Fluttershy smiled.

"I know! I'm so excited!" Tiger Stripes beamed. "I've always dreamed of sharing my cooking with everypony in Equestria, and if I open a restaurant in Canterlot, then ponies from near and far will come to try my food!"

"It would certainly be a worthy reason to see Canterlot..." Fluttershy hypothesized.

"And when I do open my restaurant, I'd be honored to have you two, as well as Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie Pie, Rarity and Applejack as some of my first diners!" "Really?! You serious?!" Rainbow Dash's eyes lit up.

"Oh, really?" Fluttershy's eyes lit up. "You would...?"

"Of course I would!" Tiger Stripes smiled. "Why wouldn't I do that?"

"It's official! You are AWESOME!!!" Rainbow Dash exclaimed with a wide grin.

"Oh...well...thank you so much, Tiger Stripes...we'd be honoured...." Fluttershy said softly, flattered.

"My pleasure, Fluttershy!" Tiger Stripes beamed. Then she blushed a little bit. "And thanks for the vote of awesomeness, Rainbow Dash!"

"It's true, ya know!" Rainbow Dash smirked.

"Oh yes, absolutely." Fluttershy agreed with a smile, giggling. "You are certainly awesome, Tiger Stripes."

"To hear it from both of you?! Awww, you're too kind!!!" Tiger Stripes blushed, giggling.

"Hee...you're welcome. You deserve it..." Fluttershy giggled.

The three mares shared a warm laugh, even though Rainbow Dash's delighted cackling managed to overpower the other two's laughter.

"So, I'll leave the rest of this pie for you girls to finish!" Tiger Stripes offered. "I should get going, my friend Flower Heart is waiting for me to come and make her my special soup."

"Ohhh yeah, Blushy's still kinda sick, isn't she?" Rainbow Dash frowned a bit.

"Awwww, so soon?" Fluttershy looked disappointed. But she smiled in understanding. "That's all right though, I'm sure it would be important to make sure she has a healthy remedy. Um...do you need any help?"

"Sadly, yes." Tiger Stripes frowned a little. "Yes, Flower Heart still has a touch of a cold, and I promised to make her my soup to help her feel better. And no thank you, I've got it covered."

"Oh, then before you go, I have something for you!" Fluttershy flew into the air, looking for something. "Do you remember that book you wanted to borrow from me?"

"Yes, I remember!" Tiger Stripes nodded, watching Fluttershy.

"Here it is!" Fluttershy took a book in her mouth, bringing it to Tiger Stripes. "I'm so sorry it took so long to give to you...."

"Oh, that's perfectly all right, Fluttershy!" Tiger Stripes smiled, levitating the book with her magic and stowing it in her saddlebags. "I appreciate it, though! Thank you for letting me borrow it!"

"Oh, no problem..." Fluttershy smiled happily at her Unicorn friend. "Do come by again sometime, you know you're welcome here anytime..."

"Of course I will!" Tiger Stripes nodded, trotting to the door to put on her rain coat and grab her umbrella. "I'll try to come back by tomorrow, all right?"

"That sounds good, tomorrow night it is." Fluttershy nodded. "Thank you so very much for coming here, and for bringing that wonderful pie!"

"Oh, you're very welcome!" Tiger Stripes smiled, nodding as she put on her raincoat and opened the door with her magic, opening her umbrella as she stepped outside. "I'll see you then! Take care!"

“See ya, Stripes!” Rainbow Dash called after her.

"Take care, and give Flower Heart my regards!" Fluttershy managed to call after her, waving.

"I certainly will! Bye, now!" Tiger Stripes waved back as she trotted off.

"You were right! She's an awesome cook!" Rainbow Dash remarked, trotting back to the couch and sitting down. "Her pie is the best I've ever tasted!"

"I agree, it really is the best, aside from the kind Applejack's family make." Fluttershy agreed, closing the door and then joining her.

"Yep, anything AJ makes with her family is good, but Stripes' pie...man, that's just all kinds of awesome!" Rainbow Dash grinned. "No wonder she's opening a restaurant in Canterlot!"

"Ooh, I can't wait! It'll be wonderful!" Fluttershy marveled at the idea.

"I can just imagine all the awesome food she'll serve!" Rainbow Dash swallowed as her mouth began to water.

"Oh, me too..." Fluttershy's eyes twinkled at the though of it all.

"If her pie is that insanely good..." Rainbow Dash began to drool, as her mouth continued watering. "Then I can't wait to taste the rest of her food!"

Fluttershy fetched a napkin, wiping her best friend's mouth. "Well, we'll be able to try them when she opens it up..." She winked.

Rainbow Dash blushed a bit in embarrassment. "Heh...you're right, pal..." She chuckled.

"It'll be fun." Fluttershy tossed it away and then nuzzled up to her.

"I bet it will be..." Rainbow Dash nuzzled up against her in return.

"And we'll all be having fun with it together!" Fluttershy brought her good foreleg around her.

"Wouldn't have it any other way!" Rainbow Dash put her foreleg around her and pulled her close.

"Neither would I..." Fluttershy giggled, nuzzling their cheeks. "It'll be wonderful to share all together."

"It'll be awesome to all share in this together," Rainbow Dash chuckled in agreement.

Fluttershy giggled and smiled. "You're right, it will be..."

Rainbow Dash giggled, as well. "Yep. Can't wait until Stripes opens her restaurant! It'll be awesome!"

"Another fun event in Canterlot, then!" Fluttershy smiled. "The last time we went was for the Royal Wedding..."

"Best wedding ever!" Rainbow Dash grinned. "Especially since I got to do a Sonic Rainboom!"

"Yes, it was wonderful! A perfect idea for a big wedding..." Fluttershy giggled at the memory.

"And once it was the real Princess trotting down the aisle, and not that fake Changeling Queen, it was even better!" Rainbow Dash pointed out.

"Better than ever!" Fluttershy beamed. "I'm very glad.... And um...pardon my saying...I think you looked lovely in your dress, too..."

"Even though I don't care for fancy dress..." Rainbow Dash shrugged. "Yeah, I think my dress suited me...a lot like my Gala dress, even!"

"Yes! A lot like it!" Fluttershy beamed, nodding. "You looked....um....well....um..."

"Awesome, right?" Rainbow Dash prompted, grinning.

"Yes, awesome!" Fluttershy giggled, nodding.

"Of course it was awesome!" Rainbow Dash grinned, nuzzling Fluttershy. "And your dress was...pretty nice, too..."

"You think so?" Fluttershy giggled, blushing a little.

"Uh-huh! Well, you know, I do think so! Rainbow Dash chuckled, nodding.

"Aww....thank you, Dashie..." Fluttershy gave her a little kiss on the nose in thanks.

"Anytime!" Rainbow Dash gave her a little kiss back.

"Hee..." Fluttershy giggled. "You know...I never thanked you for saving me against those...Changelings of yourself..."

"Well..." Rainbow Dash smirked a bit. "Now's as good a time as any!"

"Thank you so much....and um...you were so sweet...to help me up..and when you kissed me on the nose," Fluttershy blushed at the memory.

"Heh heh...what can I say...heat of the moment...?" Rainbow Dash blushed, rubbing the back of her head sheepishly.

Fluttershy giggled and nuzzled her. "You were still sweet, though..."

Rainbow Dash nuzzled her back, grinning. "Hey, my friend was in trouble...I wasn't about to let those phony-pony mes beat up on you!"

"You're my hero!" Fluttershy cooed sweetly, giggling.

"I try..." Rainbow Dash replied, chuckling.

"You always have," Fluttershy cooed sweetly, and just sighed so happily.

Of course, to anyone who would see them exchange these displays (and nopony ever did), they would think it was odd that they were very close for just best friends. In truth, there was more to it than that, at least to Fluttershy. She relished these sweet moments, the way Rainbow Dash was just softened up and sweeter around her, and how close they were.

It all fed into how much Fluttershy just loved her. More than as a friend.

"Mmm...this is nice, isn't it?" She looked at her, into her magenta eyes.

"Uh-huh...sure is..." The rainbow-maned daredevil murmured lazily, meeting her forest-green eyes.

Always and always, and nopony but herself knew this, she admired the year-older Pegasus's beauty, especially the soft warmth and kindness that was always visible in her eyes. It was just one of many things that Rainbow Dash adored about Fluttershy. Of course, she could never tell anypony else this, not even Fluttershy, herself. She feared being shunned, if it came to light that she was, indeed, a "fillyfooler", as her once-friend Gilda had accused her, if even in a teasing manner. She couldn't let anypony know, no matter how desperately she wanted to.

"A nice rainy day, just the kind of day where you want to sit inside, letting in the fresh air, and enjoying a nice book or just sitting with your friends..." Fluttershy smiled more.

Just how did Rainbow Dash do it, she wondered. The way she looked so tough and a little more like a tomcolt than a filly filly, and yet still retained some kind of a feminine charm, especially when it counted. She always admired how the daredevil just didn't care what other people thought, did things her way, and had a blast doing it. She wanted so much to tell her how she felt...but feared that it would only receive backlash in return.

She knew how at times in the past, Rainbow Dash had been accused of being a "fillyfooler" for how much of a typical tomcolt they perceive perceived her as. It scared her, she didn't want her dearest best friend since fillyhood to think that she thought that of her and didn't genuinely love her. She was scared to death of ruining their wonderful friendship. Things were fine now, right? They were. Even if Fluttershy had continuous longings to just hold Rainbow Dash, kiss her so sweetly and tell her over and over that she loved her.

"It's perfectly awesome, if you ask me!" Rainbow Dash chuckled softly, hooves still behind her head, as she brought one hind leg over the other, sitting as she often did upon a cloud.

Tomcolt and daredevil though she may have been, Rainbow Dash was still a mare. Through and through. But Fluttershy was a different story, altogether. Not only was this her best fillyhood friend, she was secretly secret her special somepony.

Fluttershy giggled, and then rolled onto her back, laying her head on the cyan mare's lap. They did this many times, and were perfectly comfortable with that kind of intimate closeness of laying each other's heads in the other's laps. Her injured foreleg was cradled against her chest in its sling, the rest of her legs curled up.

"Yes, it certainly is perfectly awesome." Fluttershy smiled.

Rainbow Dash glanced down as Fluttershy lay her head in her lap, chuckling softly as she brought a hoof down to play with her soft, pink mane. The two Pegasi had done this often, and were completely comfortable being that close with each other. They'd even fallen asleep this way, before.

"Comfy, pal?" Rainbow smirked lightly.

"Yes...." Fluttershy giggled, both at the silly moment and the way Rainbow Dash was stroking her mane. "Your lap is the best pillow."

"That's because my lap, just like the rest of me, is totally and completely awesome!" Rainbow Dash smirked, continuing to play with Fluttershy's soft mane. "And your mane is the softest thing these hooves have ever touched."

Blushing from her compliment, Fluttershy also laughed. "Oh, of course. Why wouldn't even your lap be awesome?" She smiled more. "Aww...I'm glad it's still soft..."

Unable to resist the urge, Rainbow Dash began to tickle Fluttershy's snout with the longer ends of her own mane. "Heh, you tell me how soft it is."

"Hey..." Fluttershy giggled madly from the ticklish feeling. "That tickles, Dashie! Hee hee!" She wiggled a bit, laughing with delight.

"Come on, Fluttershy..." Rainbow teased, continuing to tickle her snout. "You know you like it..."

"Noooo...." Fluttershy giggled happily.

"Yes!" Rainbow Dash smirked, laughing a little.

"No!" Fluttershy laughed more at the soft strands tickling her snout.

"Your voice says "no", but your laughter says "yes"!" Rainbow smirked and continued to tickle her.

"O-Okay...okay! I surrender!" Fluttershy squealed.

"What was that?" Rainbow cocked her head towards her victim, her ear perked up.

"I surrender!" Fluttershy repeated in a squeak.

"Say it!" Rainbow Dash taunted, though she slowly began to stop tickling her.

"S-Say what....?" Fluttershy blinked.

"Say I'm the most awesome Pegasus in all of Cloudsdale, and all of Equestria!" Rainbow tickled her some more.

"You're the most awesome Pegasus in all of Cloudsdale, and all of Equestria!" Fluttershy said breathlessly.

"Okay, good enough!" Rainbow let go of her mane, no longer tickling her.

"Hee...." Fluttershy giggled, smiling more. "You're right, it is still soft."

"Yep!" Rainbow Dash nodded, smiling a bit. "Soft and pleasing to my hooves. Don't ever change what you do to keep it that way."

"Oh, I won't be...don't you worry." Fluttershy assured, shaking her head a bit.

"Good." Rainbow Dash chuckled. "You're lucky I didn't keep at it!"

"Oh dear...." Fluttershy giggled, holding he hoof to her mouth, winking.

Rainbow winked back, poking Fluttershy in the stomach.

"Eee!" Fluttershy squeaked from being poked, laughing.

Pleased with the reaction, Rainbow poked her again, but more gently, this time.

"Ee!" Fluttershy giggled, and smiled more. "You sure know how to make me forget about the pain, Dashie."

"Glad I can help take away your pain, Fluttershy," Rainbow Dash said with a smile. "I'm better than any painkiller, aren't I?"

"Oh yes, better than any painkiller," Fluttershy nodded. "You...always have been."

"Because I'm twenty percent better!" Rainbow chuckled, poking Fluttershy once more.

"Ee! Yes...you're twenty percent better..." Fluttershy snuggled againgst her a bit.

"Glad you agree." Rainbow snuggled back against her, sighing in contentment.

"Of course." Fluttershy blushed a bit, and just looked up at her with a happy smile. Trying not to fantasize about Rainbow Dash leaning down..down....to meet their lips...

"Well...even if it meant I had to miss out on seeing the Wonderbolts...I'm glad I was able to take care of you..." Rainbow Dash murmured, smiling softly down at her. She couldn't help but imagine Fluttershy craning her head up so they were snout to snout...lips about to touch...

"I'm so sorry we missed it...but I'm truly grateful for you," Fluttershy leaned up a little, not even realizing it.

"Eh, it's no big deal. I won VIP season passes, so I can go to any or as many Wonderbolts shows as I want. Missing one to take care of you is totally worth it!" Rainbow Dash had closed her eyes, and was leaning her head down without even knowing it, smiling then.

"Call it a raincheck, I suppose...if we could still go together..." Fluttershy's eyelids lowered partway.

"Of course we can. That's the plan, anyway.” Rainbow's snout was almost touching Fluttershy's, now.

"All right..." Fluttershy leaned up again, their snouts now touching. "I'll bring my camera, we can take pictures."

"Perfect way to capture what's sure to be the best day ever," Rainbow felt their snouts touching, and turned her head to the side slightly, their lips about to touch.

"Any day we spend together is the best day ever..." Fluttershy's voice softened a bit, turning her head a bit too, their lips just barely a few inches apart.

"Of course it is..." Rainbow murmured softly, the gap between their lips nearly closing.

"Always..." Fluttershy's eyelids lowered a bit more, her voice a soft whisper.

And then, their secret dreams were met as their lips met in a little kiss.

Fireworks exploded around them, or at least, they did in Rainbow Dash's head, as the two Pegasi touched lips in a sweet, tender kiss. She brought her forelegs around the other's waist, easing herself into a laying position right beside her.

It was a wonder Fluttershy didn't faint! But her cheeks heated up all the more, now noticeable red blotches on either cheek. A wave of happiness and sweet pleasure coursed through her, then careful rolled onto her side to meet her position halfway.

Pleasure and happiness coursed through the cyan Pegasus as well, as the kiss grew sweeter. Rainbow Dash gently pulled Fluttershy close, pressing their bodies together, but being careful of her wounded foreleg. Her cheeks were warm with a blush, also.

Fluttershy wondered if she was dreaming, it just had to be! But yet, she knew that all of her dreams would end before Rainbow Dash would kiss her, and now it was really happening! She breathed gently through her nose, and brought her good hoof up to her best friend's rainbow mane, gently playing with it.

A shudder of pleasure raced up Rainbow Dash's spine, as she felt Fluttershy gently playing with her mane. In response to this, she raised her hooves to her best friend's wings, and began teasing the delicate feathers, eventually slipping her forelegs beneath them and bringing her hooves around her shoulders.

Her wings fluttered, even quivering a bit in response to her touches. Fluttershy trembled, and felt her eyes close entirely. A shiver coursed up and down her spine, her wings tingled. It was heaven!

In a bold, yet surprising move, Rainbow's tongue licked at Fluttershy's soft lips, begging entrance into her sweet cavern. Shivers raced up and down her spine, and heat began to pool in her stomach, as she felt her mind becoming clouded by a sense of want...a sense of lust...but no, she had to restrain herself, even if she never wanted this moment, their first kiss, to end!

Fluttershy gasped in response, causing her mouth to open. Did she really want to kiss that way? Her stomach fluttered as if filled with butterflies, as well as a searing heat pooling within. She trembled a bit, wondering what this feeling meant...why it seemed to get stronger.

No sooner had Fluttershy's mouth opened than Rainbow Dash's tongue slipped inside, eagerly exploring every inch of the sweet cavern. She tasted like salad, and even the sweet apple pie they'd eaten earlier that afternoon. It was pleasing to her taste buds, and filled her mind with pleasure.

Feeling her best friend trembling beneath her, Rainbow Dash pulled away slightly, opening her eyes a sliver. "Too fast for you...?"

It had been, but Fluttershy just couldn't say that it was. Especially in the fact that she liked it. Really liked it. She was so curious, there was no way she could stop. "N-No...it's all right..."

"Are you sure...? I don't want to force you." Rainbow Dash nuzzled her gently, as a means to reassure her. She, too, liked what had been happening, and didn't want to stop, unless she was making her best friend uncomfortable with the situation.

"You're not..." Fluttershy assured, and nuzzled her in return, smiling then in the midst of her intense blushing. "...I...l-liked it."

"You did?" Rainbow Dash blinked in surprise, but then she smiled back. "...Want to continue, then?"

Blushing more, Fluttershy could barely answer. Instead, she nodded and nuzzled her. A part of her felt an impending guilt rising, that she knew this had to be wrong. She was taking advantage of the fact that Rainbow Dash wanted to kiss her, for whatever reason. Because she herself loved her, of course she welcomed the contact once she was more used to it. ...But did that mean this was right? No matter how wonderful it felt? Did Rainbow Dash really want this?

Chuckling softly, Rainbow Dash nuzzled her back and gently pressed their lips together again, kissing her sweetly.

A pleasured shudder coursed up and down Fluttershy's spine as her wing even flapped a bit. She kissed back sweetly, feeling a sense of happy joy that Rainbow Dash seemed to like kissing her. Maybe now they would also do that?

Rainbow Dash's wings flapped as well, as she gently put her forelegs under Fluttershy's wings once more, her hooves touching her shoulders. Making another bold move, she eased herself on top of the other Pegasus, careful not to lean on her injured foreleg, and even gently turning her onto her back.

A surprised squeak escaped Fluttershy at the unexpected shift in positions, but eventually relaxed into it and welcomed it. They had lain on top of each other before, but that had mostly been in play, and at times when they were just relaxing and talking. Never like this. Never this closely or intimately.

She felt her best friend's tongue gently tracing her lips. This time, she was ready, and opened her mouth.

Rainbow's tongue eagerly dove into Fluttershy's mouth, once again exploring the sweet cavern with fervor, savoring her unique taste. Heat continued to pool in her stomach, and the sense of lust began to cloud her mind. This time, she let it.

Fluttershy's own tongue prodded back timidly for a moment, trying to get used to the strange new feeling. She then explored Rainbow Dash's mouth, tasting the salad, some pie, and...something she couldn't place, but it all added up to her, something strangely manifesting as her.

Shudders of pleasure coursed up and down Rainbow Dash's spine, as she felt Fluttershy's tongue entering her mouth, while her own tongue continued to taste and explore the other's mouth. Her hooves found their way into her soft mane, teasing and playing with the strands as a simple, sweet kiss soon became a full-on make out session.

At the back of her throat, Fluttershy moaned softly between their mouths. Their tongues explored each other's mouths, before meeting again in an intricate, intimate dance. Her hind legs kicked a bit in pleasure, before one of them curled around one of Rainbow Dash's hind legs, a little up toward her flank. Lust and wanton clouded her mind, as she curiously explored these new feelings she was unfamiliar with.

A sensual growl rumbled deep within Rainbow Dash's throat, in response to Fluttershy's moan. Lust clouded her mind, and heat pooled rapidly in the pit of her stomach, as Fluttershy's hind leg curled around her own hind leg, her back hoof coming to rest by her flank. Her rainbow tail drooped over the side of the couch, somehow twisting and intertwining with Fluttershy's pink tail.

The growl from her best friend almost scared her, and yet, there was something so different about it. She liked it, and felt herself moan yet again between their mouths. Fluttershy then brought up her good foreleg, gently playing with the feathers of Rainbow Dash's wing.

A sudden jolt of pleasure shot through Rainbow Dash's entire body, hitting her like a bolt of lightning as Fluttershy played with her wing. She continued to play with her soft mane, massaging her hoof gently along the back of her skull as she did so. The need to breathe was beginning to take hold, but Rainbow Dash inhaled sharply through her nose to keep from having to break apart, just yet.

Oh, she didn't want this to end! She wanted more, to just stay like this forever, draped in the arms of her beloved Rainbow Dash! This wasn't just a kiss, this was necking, making out. Oh yes, Fluttershy knew THAT much, at least. Thanks to some romance novels....

The feeling of her mane and skull massaged felt so wonderful and sent trembles throughout her body. She moaned again, louder now, as her hindleg gently stroked Rainbow Dash's.

There was no other explanation. This had to be a dream come true! Even greater than her dream to be one of the Wonderbolts! So what if she liked mares? So what if she was more tomcolt than filly-filly? At this point, the only thing that mattered to Rainbow Dash was the Pegasus beneath her!

A sudden tightening sensation took hold in her lower regions, but it was far from an unpleasant feeling. In fact, it was quite desirable, as the heat in her stomach grew more intense. Another growl rumbled deep in her throat, as she straddled Fluttershy's flank with her own hind legs, pressing gently against her hips.

A strange feeling pooled in her stomach that seemed to course to her nether regions, which almost scared Fluttershy. It was almost intense, and felt it would get too strong if she wasn't careful. The feeling was almost frightening! And yet, she managed to relax, to just let the feeling overtake her. Then Rainbow Dash's bold move had her shuddering in pleasure, moaning between kisses, and the feeling in her stomach grew more intense.

What was going on??

The gentle pressure she was creating did something to Rainbow Dash's already lust-filled mind, and she made yet another bold move, instinctually. Her hind legs still straddling Fluttershy's flank, she ground their hips together, creating a delicious friction that just about made her explode with pleasure. Even though she'd never done anything of this sort with anypony before, it just came to her naturally. Instinct, perhaps? That had to be it. She could think of no other way to explain her actions.

She only hoped she wasn't making her best friend uncomfortable, or even wary of her...

Fluttershy now broke away from their kissing, as much as she didn't want to, to be able to breathe and release a very pleasured, louder moan. She trembled, her cheeks flushed, as she looked up at Rainbow Dash with amazed eyes. "W-What...was that?" She asked curiously.

Rainbow Dash panted softly, catching her breath. She shook her head, carefully propping herself up on her forelegs above Fluttershy. "Heh heh...sorry, buddy...kinda don't...know what...came over me..." She offered sheepishly.

"N-No...I mean...what happened? I felt so strange...e-especially d-down here..." Fluttershy managed in a soft voice.

"...You too, huh...?" Rainbow Dash blinked, shaking her head again. "I don't know...I've never experienced a feeling...like that, before..."

"...It was...It was...n-nice in a way..." Fluttershy managed, her cheeks pinkening. "...What you did just now, especially..."

"It...was a...nice feeling...wasn't it..." Rainbow Dash murmured in agreement, her own cheeks pinkening. "As for that...like I said...I don't know what came over me..."

"It's...it's okay..." Fluttershy squeaked a bit, and nuzzled her in assurance. "I've never...kissed anypony before, and this....oh my...it felt...amazing."

"I've never...kissed anypony, either..." Rainbow admitted, nuzzling her in return. "So I guess...you could say I...picked it all up from a book?"

"..Oh...I see..." Fluttershy nodded. She smiled more and nuzzled her. "Um....so...what now?" The question held two meanings to it, especially in how her tone was slightly anxious.

"Let's just cuddle now," Rainbow Dash suggested, smiling and nuzzling her. "Sound good to you...?"

Unsure whether or not she should feel relieved, the idea did still ignite a little joy in her heart. At least Rainbow wasn't trying to get away from her, and still wanted to be close. And Fluttershy was never one to turn down snuggle-time with her best friend. "I always want to cuddle...." Fluttershy giggled, nodding.

"Cuddling is good..." Rainbow nodded, giggling herself.

"Yes..." Fluttershy nodded. "Um...like this or...?"

"Nah...this would be better under a blanket..." Rainbow Dash sat up, and then sat against one end of the couch invitingly.

"Oh, good idea...I'll go get a blanket." Fluttershy picked one up sitting on a clean laundry basket pile, and brought it back.

"Perfect..." Rainbow gave an approving nod. "Now we can cuddle under a blanket..."

"Yay..." Fluttershy gave a genuine, but still soft cheer, drapping the blanket over them. "This will be nice..."

"Uh-huh..." Rainbow smiled softly, wrapping her forelegs gently around Fluttershy. "This is the perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon together..."

"I agree, it's perfect," Fluttershy giggled. "Well, let's continue enjoying the rainy day..."

"Let's..." Rainbow smiled, nodding in agreement. She looked at Fluttershy, hesitated, but then leaned in and kissed her gently on the mouth.

Fluttershy shuddered, but kissed back, melting into the sweet feeling. Who would've thought Rainbow could be so gentle? It was an amazing wonder she would never forget.

And so they did, cuddling together on a lovely rainy afternoon...even after such a hot make out session. Whether or not it would occur yet again, was a mystery to the two Pegasi. But that was okay, at least everything was still just fine between them.
