The Rainbow and The Comet - RNBW

  • ...

Sugarcube Corner

As Rainbow Dash was getting dressed for the day, she couldn't stop thinking about what Comet said earlier. It really shocked her how the boy has been through a lot. Rainbow cringed at the thought of Comet being hit by his father.

'What kind of person does that to his own son?' Rainbow let out a sad sigh, then she furrowed her brows in anger. 'If I ever meet that jerk...'

Then all of a sudden another thought came across her mind. An very interesting thought that could help Comet, yet at the same time she wasn't sure if she would be ready for that. She needed to discuss it with her friends.

After tying her boots, Rainbow exited her room and went to the door of the bathroom.

"Comet, are you done?" Rainbow asked as she knocked on the bathroom door.

"Yes, I am done," Comet replied from behind the door.

When Comet said that, he walked out of the bathroom wearing his new clothes that Rarity made for him. His new clothes consisted of a cyan long sleeved T shirt with dark blue sleeves, a new pair of male denim shorts and blue shoes with green lining.

Comet looked up at her with a small smile. "H-How do I look?"

Rainbow smiled and gave him a thumbs up. "You look awesome little guy."

Comet blushed at her compliment as Rainbow took his hand into hers.

"Are you ready, Comet?" she asked, giving him another smile.

Comet nodded in reply and the pair went downstairs, walked toward the door and exited the house to made their journey towards Sugarcube Corner.

After walking for thirty minutes, the two arrived at Sugarcube Corner where Rainbow saw her friends, minus Pinkie Pie, sitting at a nearby table, drinking some smoothies. The girls smiled and waved at the duo.

Rainbow waved back with a smile and she turned to look at Comet with that same smile.

"Alright, buddy, what would you like to eat," she asked.

Comet smiled up at her. "I-I would like a v-vanilla ice c-cream cone, Rainbow."

"Vanilla is then." Rainbow said before ruffling his hair. "How about you sit with the girls while I get your ice cream?"

He nodded. "Okay, Rainbow."

Rainbow gave him another smile before walking up to the counter to buy Comet's ice cream. Meanwhile, the child made his way towards the table with a small, friendly smile.

Comet Moonstone lifted his hand and waved. "H-Hi there."

"Hello there, Comet," Sunset smiled down at the little colt.

A beaming smile crept across Rarity's face. "Oh my, Comet! You look absolutely dashing!"

"I agree with Rarity, ya look great feller," Applejack smiled warmly at him.

A rosy blush appeared Comet's cheeks. "Thank you, Rarity. Thank you, Applejack."

Rarity gave him a warm smile and patted her lap. "Come here, darling. You can sit on my lap."

Comet blushed once again as he walked over to her and carefully sat on her lap.

"Do you like your new clothes, dear?" Rarity sweetly asked.

He looked up at her with a light smile. "Y-Yes, Rarity, I r-really like them. T-Thank you."

"Hey, sweetheart, may can you tell me how old are you?" Twilight asked with a bright smile.

"I am s-six years o-old," Comet replied, returning the smile.

A few moments later, Rainbow walked up towards the table, holding Comet's ice cream cone.

"There you go, buddy, a vanilla cone," she said as she handed his cone to him.

With a thankful smile, Comet kindly took the ice cream cone and Rainbow Dash took a seat beside Rarity.

"Sup, guys," Rainbow greeted with a friendly smile.

"Hello, Rainbow," the girls greeted back, returning the smile.

However, the smile of the rainbow haired athlete vanished. Instead, she had a look of confusion because of the absence of a certain party gal.

"Umm, guys, where's Pinkie Pie?" she asked.

When Comet Moonstone heard the name of that crazy girl, an insecure look spread across his face.

"Oh, she said she was going to give a gift for the little one," Fluttershy explained in her usual soft voice.

"Speaking of which," Sunset began. "Pinkie told us what happened yesterday."

Applejack nodded in agreement. "Yeah, she said that things didn't go well between her and the little feller."

At this point, Rarity noticed the look in the face of the little colt.

"What is the matter, little one?" Rarity softly asked.

Rainbow Dash knew what was bothering the little colt.

She reached out a hand and rubbed his left shoulder. "Don't worry, bud. I promise nothing bad will happen this time."

Fluttershy gave Comet a motherly smile. "Rainbow is right, Comet. We know Pinkie can be umm... Loud. But she is a very kind person."

Comet only smiled a little as he finished his ice cream.

"Did someone said my name?" a cheerful voice asked.

Everyone in the table turned to look at the source of the voice. Standing in front of them was noneother than Pinkie Pie sporting a very happy smile with her hands behind her back.

But when Comet saw Pinkie, he immediately hugged tighly Rarity, buried his head on her shoulder and began to shake nervously. He feared that Pinkie would do the same just like she did yesterday.

"Awww, darling, don't be scared," Rarity said with a reassuring smile as she rubbed his back. "Pinkie only wants to talk with you."

Comet slowly lifted his head off her shoulder and the girls gave him a reassuring smile as a signal of "everything will be fine". After Rainbow said to him more reassuring words, Comet nervously hopped off Rarity's lap and walked towards the wild party gal.

Meanwhile, Pinkie now had a more calmer smile and instead of bouncing like she usually does, she gently bent down to his level.

"Hi, Comet Moonstone, it's great to meet you! I'm Pinkie Pie!" she said cheerful, yet calm tone. Then she pulled him into a big hug and gave him a sweet kiss on the forehead. "I'm VERY sorry about yesterday! I was trying to be your friend, but Pinkie was being a mean meanie pants to you instead! Would you forgive me?"

Comet looked up at Pinkie, apparently his nervousness vanished but not completely. He looked into her cyan eyes and saw that she was telling the truth. Despite her bubbliness, Pinkie meant every single word she said.

He softly smiled as he wrapped his arms around her neck. "I-I forgive you, Pinkie. I w-want to be your f-friend too."

Pinkie smiled brightly at the little child before resting her chin on the top of his head. Then she pulled out a cupcake from her fluffly hair and handed it over to him.

"Here yo go wittle cutie," she gave him one last kiss on the forehead.

Comet kindly took the cupcake and gave her a soft smile. "Thank you, Pinkie."

Happy that Comet was now starting to warm up to Pinkie Pie, Rainbow smiled.

"See, sweetheart, there's no need to be afraid of Pinkie," Fluttershy said, giving Comet a soft smile.

Suddenly, Pinkie let out a dramatic and loud gasp as a beaming smile washed over her face.

"I have a great idea!" she screamed, but not very loud to not scare the child.

The girls looked at her in confusion while Comet also looked but of curiosity.

"Pinkie, I don't think is a good idea planning a surprise party for Comet," Sunset said. "He might get scared."

Applejack nodded in agreement. "Yeah. Yer gonna give a heart attack to the little critter."

Pinkie giggled and shook her head. "I won't do a surprise party, silly billies. What do you think if we have a sleepover tonight with our new best friend, Comet Moonstone."

"Hey, I like the idea. Sides, there's no school for three weeks," Rainbow said and gave a bright smile at Comet. "What do you think, buddy? Wanna have a sleepover with us?"

Comet couldn't help but smile. Even though he recently became friends with them, they already invited him to a sleepover.

Comet wrapped his arms around Rainbow's waist. "Y-Yes, I would like that."

This earned a "d'awwww" from everybody. Even Rainbow Dash who gently stroked his hair with a soft smile.

"A sleepover is then," Sunset said, clapping her hands together. "We'll do it in my house."

Fluttershy placed her hand on her shoulder. "Oh, Sunset, you don't have to-"

"I insist, Fluttershy," Sunset flashed her a reasurring smile. "You're my friends after all."

With that, the day passed without any kind of incident and the group enjoyed a calm midday. As for Rainbow, she still had in mind the idea from earlier. The sleepover is a perfect chance to discuss it with her friends.

'Even if I'm young, I wonder if fit for the position?'
