Experience of Love - Shigo96

After the siren's defeat they'll go through a change of themselfes

The Promise

Adagio Dazzle, Aria Blaze and Sonata Dusk, also known as "The Dazzlings" got defeated by the main six and Sunset Shimmer, known as "The Rainbooms". With the song the Rainbooms played, a huge white alicorn with a rainbow colored mane appeared and shot a rainbow at the Dazzlings which caused that they lost their powers and singing voices as their pendants broke. The Dazzlings ran off the stage as the crowd was booing and throwing food at them. Soon they arrived at their house which they bought a few years ago. Everybody had an own bedroom and bathroom, the house also contained a large living room and a kitchen.
It was awkwardly silent between the Dazzlings as they went into their living room. Nobody spoke a word, they just stared at each other and on the floor until Adagio broke the silence.

"I'll go to take a shower now and don't dare to disturb me," Adagio spoke up.

"Okay, me too," said Sonata.

"Whatever," Aria grumbled in an annoyed tone.

After their shower they got rid of their stage outfits and changed into their normal clothes and went into the living room. Aria and Sonata sat on the couch next to each other as Adagio was pacing back and forth in front of them.

"I can't believe it," Adagio spat through gritted teeth, "We were so close! We almost did it!".

"What are we going to do now?" Sonata asked.

"Are you kidding me, Sonata?!" Adagio hissed, "We lost our powers so we aren't able to do anything! And how dare you to ask what we are going to do?! This is all your fault, Sonata! If you'd spent more time on focusing on our plan we would've been successful! Aria was right all those years! You really ARE the worst!" Adagio screamed.

Aria glared at Adagio as Sonata clenched her fists.

"What?! Our plan?!" Sonata screamed which made Adagio and even Aria flinch.

"Is that really her?" Aria thought to herself as she stared at Sonata with wide eyes.

"How dare you to blame me for this?! I always did what you said, ALWAYS! I never did anything wrong! Besides, it wasn't our plan, it was only YOUR stupid plan so don't blame me for your failure!!" Sonata screamed in pure rage.

Aria's eyes went wide again as she was quite impressed about Sonata raging like that. "Wow I never thought she'd dare to scream at Adagio like this," Aria thought to herself again.
Adagio just stared at Sonata for a brief moment but soon found her voice again.

"Be careful how you speak to me!" Adagio spat.

"I speak to you the way I want and how you deserve it, bitch!" Sonata hissed as she gritted her teeth.

"You better take that back you little-"

"NO!" Sonata cut her off, "I have enough of you bossing me around and I'm tired of you treating me like a piece of shit!" she hissed.

Adagio slowly stepped closer to Sonata and grabbed her by her shirt collar. Aria stood up from the couch as she noticed this.

"Take. That. Back." said Adagio in a low tone.

Normally Sonata would be too scared to say something by now. But this time, surprisingly, she wasn't.

"No! I won't! And you know for yourself that this is the truth!" Sonata shouted.

That pushed Adagio over the egde. She lifted her hand to slap Sonata but only found herself pinned against the wall by Aria. She stared at her with fear as she saw Aria's expression, she had nothing but hate and anger in her eyes.

"Don't dare to try to hurt her ever again," said Aria in a low but very aggressive tone, "or I'll beat the crap out of you." she continued.

"Y..y-you wouldn't," said Adagio with fear in her voice.

"Oh yes I would and you know exactly that I will if you touch her," Aria replied as she stared deeply into Adagio's eyes. Sweat started to drip down on Adagio's face. She began to feel weird. She was afraid and confused. Confused because Aria and Sonata never dared to treat her like that before. After a minute, which felt like hours to Adagio, Aria released her and began to walk upstairs.

"C'mon, Sonata," said Aria.

"Um...o-okay," she stammered as she followed her.

"Wait... I have a question, Aria."

"What do you want now, cheese-head?"

"Why do you protect that air-" she cut herself off as she thought about what Aria said to her a few minutes ago, "I mean, Sonata?"

"Because..." Aria hesitated for a moment, "Because I'm a person who can keep a promise," she finished.

When Sonata heard that, her eyes went wide. "What is she talking about?"

"What are you talking about? Which promise do you mean?" Adagio wanted to know.

"That's none of your concern." Aria replied as she and Sonata went upstairs and into their bedrooms.

Adagio just stood in the floor and wondered about "the promise" which Aria mentioned. She knew that Aria wouldn't tell her anyway so she decided to shrug it off for now.

Aria slumped onto her bed and sighed, "What the fuck was that?" she asked herself. She took her headbands off and changed into her pajamas. After that she went to sleep. Well, she tried to but she couldn't because she felt bad, very bad. She felt guilty. Guilty about what she'd done but mostly about how she treated Sonata over centuries they lived together. Soon she snapped out of her thoughts as someone knocked on her door.

"What is it?! It's open!"

The door opened and Sonata peeked inside, "Ari? Can I come in?" she asked.

"Oh, it's you. Sure, come in..." Aria replied.

Sonata did so and slowly closed the door behind her. She sat onto the bed next to Aria as she noticed her expression. Her expression was angry and also sad at the same time. Sonata began to worry because she never saw Aria like this before.

"A-Aria..?" Sonata hesitated, "Is something wrong? Are you okay?"

"Yeah...Sure. Don't worry about me, I'm fine."

"Are you sure?"

Aria gave her an odd look but her eyes softened as she noticed that Sonata really seemed to be worried about her, "Yes, I'm fine".

"Okay, if you say so."

For a few minutes there was silence. They just sat on Aria's bed. Aria laid back and was staring at the ceiling while Sonata turned around a bit and stared at her.

"Thank you, Ari."

"For what?" Aria asked.

"For protecting me always when Adagio tries to hurt me."

"You're welcome. It's the least I can do after how I treated you over thousands of years and..." Aria hesitated before speaking again, "I'm sorry, Sonata. I know I said horrible things to you sometimes and believe me, I regret it." Aria finished her sentence.

"It's okay. You're right, you got really mean sometimes but I always knew that I could count on you when I needed you. You were always there for me. Even if you didn't want to."

"Do you really think so?"

"Yes, Ari." said Sonata. Aria smiled softly at her and she returned it. "Should I ask her or not?" Sonata thought to herself. She really wanted to know what Aria was talking about when Adagio asked why she's always protecting her.

"Can I ask you something?"

"Sure, what is it?"

"After Adagio asked you why you are protecting me you said that you are a person who can keep a promise. What did you mean with that?"

Aria sat up again and looked into Sonata's eyes with a worried expression, "Do you really want to know this? It's quite a long story and it could be really distracting for you."

"Yes, I want to know it. Please tell me, Ari."

"Okay, you deserve to know it anyway but I warned you." Sonata nodded.

"Do you remember the time before we met Adagio?"

"Yes, you were always happy before we met her!" Sonata squealed and grinned.

"Yeah, I sure was. Anyway. It was a few days before your parents disappeared." said Aria. Sonata gasped slightly and her eyes went wide as she heard that Aria's "promise" had to do with her parents. She remembered that she was really sad that time because she never knew what happened to her parents.

"I was visiting you that day. We had a lot of fun together. You were really exhausted that day so you fell asleep before dinner time. I was about to leave but your mother told me to stay a little longer because she wanted to ask me something. She told me that your parents hat to go on a "travel" and that it would take time. Then she asked me to keep an eye on you and take care of you. First I refused it because I didn't feel like I could take care of you. Then your mother told me that it'd only take a few weeks and she promised that they would come back. So I said yes. I promised that I'd take care of you as long as you stay with me. After that your parents told you that they'd go on a vacation and that they couldn't take you with them, that you have to stay with me for this time.
The few weeks that your mother told me they would need turned into month and then into years. I began to think that they just wanted to get rid of you. And that made me angry. Really, really angry. And the worst of all: I took it all out on you. I think this is one of the reasons why I got grumpy and bitchy like you usually know me."

A single tear slid down on Sonata's face, "Do you know where my parents went or what happened to them?" Sonata asked, her voice cracking.

"Sadly no. The day where they brought you to my home was the last time I saw them. I really don't know where they are nor what happened to them."

Sonata tried to hold back her tears but she couldn't. She started to sob uncontrollably and tried to hide her face behind her hands. Soon she felt a pair of arms wrapping around her shoulders. Aria pulled her in and hugged her tightly. She brought her arms around Aria's back as she returned the hug and buried her face into Aria's neck.
Aria was wondering why she was doing this but she didn't care for now. She only wanted to comfort Sonata, "Why does it hurt so much to see her like that?" she thought do herself.

"I'm so sorry, Sonata. I really wish I could tell you more but I can't." said Aria, as she began to gently stroke Sonata's hair.

"Y-you don't have t-to be...*sniffle*...s-sorry. It isn't your f-fault." stammered Sonata as she took a deep breath. Aria wiped the tears from Sonata's face. After a half hour Sonata finally stopped crying but was still holding onto Aria because she felt good in her arms.



"Can I sleep here tonight? I...I-I don't want to be alone."


Sonata smiled at her widely, "Thanks, Ari!" she said in her usual cheerful voice.

"No problem," Aria grinned, "do you want to cuddle?" she asked. "Wait, where the fuck did that come from?!" she thought to herself.

"Yes," she said softly, "I want."

"Okay then lets get some sleep, it's late."

Sonata laid down next to Aria with her head resting on Aria's chest. Aria was gently stroking her hair again. She was wondering why she was doing this but on the other side she enjoyed it somehow.

"Good night, Sona."

"Thankies, good night to you too, Ari."

They closed their eyes and drifted off to sleep immediatly and it was the first night since centuries that Aria slept with a smile in her face.
