Three - Being Cautious

Author's Note:

I'd like to apologize if it took a long time since the second chapter was released. So far, I've been busy writing the chapters so the fourth hopefully shouldn't take too long and will require proofreading and editing before it's published. Due to our busy schedules, it could take time for each chapter to be typed up, proofread and edited so you'll have to bear with us. :applejackunsure:

Without further ado, chapter three is finally here! :pinkiehappy:

Thank you for your patience and I hope you all enjoy! :twilightsmile:

Credit and thanks to fbksru521 for making me this image.

Flash tapped me on the shoulder. The next thing I knew, I was looking right back at him, noticing a smug grin plastered onto his face.

“What?” I asked, confused by his sudden odd attitude.

Flash and I sat there in silence for a few moments. “Well?” I asked. He didn’t respond, keeping his smug grin spread out. He lifted his eyebrows suavely as if he were implying something. Flash’s acting weird, I wond—wait… he doesn’t know… does he? I thought. I felt a slight uneasiness growing inside me.

“Well, what?” He still didn’t respond. I shoved him lightly. “You’re acting all weird dude.”

Flash snapped back to reality. “I said, I. Know. You. Didn’t. Go. Out. For. A. Walk,” he stated slowly. I was becoming more confused and nervous.

“W-what do you mean? Of course I went out for a walk. It helps to clear my mind and thoughts,” I explained.

Flash sighed. “Seriously? You won’t be able to pull this one over me. Here, let me break it down for you.”

“Shortly after you and Adagio left, I too decided to leave since it was late. I bade the girls a good night. Before that though, I saw Rainbow holding a wallet. I recognised that it was yours.” Flash fumbled in his pocket, extricating what I recognised was my wallet. He tossed it over to me. “Here.”

“Huh, thanks,” I said sheepishly.

“Don’t mention it. Check your things next time before you leave. You don’t want the girls to know, do you? Besides, what if Adagio saw it?” he told me teasingly. I rolled my eyes, nodding in response.

“So anyway, before Rainbow could even take a chance to peek inside your wallet, I swiped it away from her hands. Faust knows how the girls would’ve reacted if they’d discovered you like Adagio.” I always kept a note in my wallet which expressed how I felt about Adagio; Flash had discovered it a long time ago near the end of our first year in Canterlot High. It’s what kept me motivated ever since.

I frowned. “Flash, I don’t think the girls would mind if they found out.”

“What if one of them suddenly blew the whistle? Not to mention Rainbow. Should I remind you that Rainbow has a ‘slip-of-the-tongue’ issue? You’ll be screwed… literally,” Flash smirked.

I furrowed my eyebrows. “What’s that supposed to mean?” I demanded.

“I’ll get to that. Let me finish,” he said calmly. “After I left Pinkie’s house, I decided to go after you so I could hand your wallet back before you could get home. I caught up with you and noticed you and Adagio were walking together. I chose to hang back a good distance and see where you two were off to,” I grinned widely. “Seems like you were walking her home.” I felt my cheeks turn a bright red.

“W-wh-what’re you talking about?” I stammered.

“I was observing you two standing outside. You were about to leave when she stopped you. Looked like you two were talking about something,” he pointed out. I spaced out for a moment, mind drifting back to last night.

"Clavier! Wait!" She called out. I raised an eyebrow as she caught my attention.

"Is there something you need?" I asked. She nodded. She gestured me over to her. "What is it?"

I noticed Adagio's cheeks blush a faint red as she fiddled behind her back nervously. "You never told me who the lucky girl was."

"Oh... that..." I felt my cheeks burn and looked down. "Well..."

"You don't have to tell me if it makes you uncomfo—." She said. I placed a finger gently on her soft lips, cutting her sentence.

I sighed deeply. This is my chance. It's now or never. I gazed into Adagio's magenta eyes deeply, piercing through her soul. She returned the same.

"Adagio..." I started. She perked up.

"Yes?" She whispered. Both of our eyes were locked with each other, never wavering.

"You know what I told you about that girl? How I thought of her and how she makes me feel?" I said. I wanted to beat around the bush and explain things slowly to her.

"Mhm." She nodded. My heart started beating. Here goes nothing...

"Those words about that lucky girl... are about the girl that is standing in front of me now. It's you." I whispered. She gasped, taken by surprise as she placed a hand over her mouth. I noticed her cheeks flaring up quickly into bright red shapes.

I took both of her hands into mine. "Adagio, there's just not enough words I can use to describe you. Ever since I met you four years ago on that very day, I've been quite fond of you. I thought it was nothing but some random crush, but... I was wrong. I do have a crush on you, but deeper than you think. You're just flawless in every way that I can imagine. It takes my breath away and makes me feel weird inside, but what amazes me always is that you've been there for me, the same as I've been there for you. It's what I like about you as a person. Everyday, I feel closer to you, so much so that I... I've come to realise... I'm falling in love.”

I felt myself shaken by the shoulder. “Hey, are you with me?” I snapped back to reality.

“H-huh? Y-yeah! I’m here. Just… thinking, that’s all,” I stuttered.

“So, what did you two talk about? If you don’t mind me asking. Must’ve been pretty deep,” he smirked. I could feel my blush growing a bit.

I was silent for a moment before looking at him, a serious expression spread across his face. “Well, I’ll explain it shortly. But you promise not to tell anyone. Pinkie Promise?” I asked.

He rolled my eyes. “Fine, I Pinkie Promise. Cross my heart, hope to fly, stick a cupcake in my eye,” he said dully, performing each gesture lazily.

I laughed at his comical manner. “You look ridiculous when you do the Pinkie Promise.”

He frowned. “So do you. Fits the girls fine, which is why I don’t like doing it. I look like a moron,” he groaned.

I shrugged. “Oh well, better than nothing right?” he said, nodding in response. I then inhaled some fresh air calmly. “I… I admitted to Adagio how I felt about her. She was surprised to say the least. I thought I may have screwed up and made it awkward between us. I turned to leave but she grabbed me from behind with her arms,” I explained. He nodded, urging me to continue.

“She begged me not to leave. What happened next was both shocking and exhilarating at the same time. She confessed her feelings. Flash, I’ve been harboring these feelings for her, and she has been too. We’re both in love with each other. I can’t nor will I deny it.”

He gazed at me in silence, absorbing my words. Finally, he slowly let out a warm smile and patted me on the back. “Good man. How’d it feel?” he asked.

“It felt like a great weight’s been lifted off my chest and at the same time, the mutual feelings for each other are indescribable,” I replied.

He nodded thoughtfully. “Well, at least you’ve been honest and told me the truth. That’s all that matters,” he pointed.

“Hey, we’re the best of friends. We have been since we were kids. Heck, you’ve been like a brother to me, one I’ve never had before,” I said proudly, smiling.

“I couldn’t agree more,” he smiled in return. I held out my fist which Flash bumped with his own.


[Flash Sentry’s P.O.V.]

- Flashback -


Today was my first day of school. I was only six years old back then. I walked into the classroom with my mother, clutching tightly onto her with both of my hands. “Go on, Flash. In you go, I’m sure you’ll have a great day and make some friends. Mommy will be back to pick you up later at three o’clock in the in the afternoon, okay?” she reassured soothingly.

I nodded obediently. “Yes, mommy.” I was nervous at first at the thought of school. School. Teachers. Other children.

“That’s a good boy. Now, give mommy a kiss,” she cooed. I did so and pecked her on the cheek lightly. “Behave, okay? Have a lovely day, son!” My mother walked out of the room, waving a goodbye which I returned. I turned around to face my class tutor and a large group of kids quietly sitting cross-legged.

“Hello there! I’m Ms. Merrilee. Why don’t you come up and introduce yourself?” she said with warm, comforting smile. I stood there, shaking. She reached her hand out. I reluctantly allowed her to take my hand, bringing me gently up front. “Why don’t you tell us your name, little one?” I nodded shakily.

I gazed at the body of children. “H-h-hello. Um… my name’s F-Flash Sentry and today’s my first day of school here. I-it’s good to meet you all and I h-hope I get to make new friends. Th-thank you,” I introduced myself. The other children sitting in front clapped their hands. Ms. Merrilee patted me on the back gently. “It’s nice to meet you, Flash. Please, take a seat with the other children,” she gestured. I did so and picked a spot next to a boy. He had dark purplish-blue hair with light blue streaks on the edges, blue skin, and ocean blue eyes. Everything about this guy was blue, I mentally giggled. The boy looked at me with a smile. He held his hand out.

“Hi, I’m Clavier. Clavier Melody. It’s nice to meet you, Flash Sentry,” he introduced happily.

I smiled and shook his hand. “It’s nice to meet you, Clavier. Do you want to be best friends?” I asked.

His eyes glistened like water. “Sure, best friends?” he asked.

“Best friends,” I replied, smiling. We bumped our fists together.


- Flashback Ends -

[Clavier Melody’s P.O.V.]


I saw a smile appear on his face. I wondered what he was thinking. He looks like he’s spaced out. I shook him by the shoulders.

“Hey, Flash. You were spacing there for a second, you okay?” I asked worriedly. He held a hand up calmly.

“I’m fine, just remembered something,” he reassured, smiling. I nodded. He decided to resume asking further more questions. Flash grew a devious smirk.

“Soooooo… is there anything else I should know?” he asked with a teasing tone. I felt my cheeks flare up into a deep red colour.

“I thought you were there observing?” I asked, confused.

“I was, but I decided to leave. Someone needed their privacy,” Flash answered, his smirk growing.

“Well…” I started off, scratching the back of my head lightly. “We, um… we kissed,” I mumbled, embarrassed.

“Aye, its normal for couples who admit their feelings for each other. Although, I would say it sounds corny, like the scenes you’d find in some romance movies,” he burst out laughing. I punched him on the shoulder. “Owwwww!” he groaned, rubbing the spot to ease the pain.

“How would you like it if I said I found the moment between you and Twilight corny?” I grinned smugly. Flash’s cheeks visibly flared up.

“What?! What the hell does this have to do with Twilight?” he asked hotly. I just sat, ignoring his question, grinning. “UGH!” he groaned frustratedly, throwing arms in the air. I chuckled. “Okay, back to the topic,” he resumed calmly. “This is about you and Adagio… not about me and… Twilight. Continue.”

“We kissed for a good amount of time. It felt… I don’t know. It’s hard to explain really. All I can think of is that it was breathtaking and exciting,” I said.

“I bet that’s not the only thing that was exciting,” I heard him mumbled quietly, barely audible. I shot him a stern look.

“What was that?” I asked. Flash jumped back out of his thoughts.

“Um! Nothing! Just thinking, that’s all, hehehe,” he chuckled nervously. I narrowed my eyes at him before resuming.

“Can you please stop being such a tease and let me finish?” I demanded. He nodded.

“So what happened after?” My blush was deeper than before; I bet I looked like a tomato.

“Before I continue, you promise this stays between us. Got it?” I asked anxiously. He nodded. We performed our own personal promise, made to keep secrets between us two only. Both Flash and I sang a short note whilst bumping our fists and clapping hands together in high fives. If I could compare it to anything, it would be like a melodic rap. Sort of…

After performing our personal promise, I sighed in relief, knowing the secret was safe. I took a deep breath as I prepared to reveal one thing I shouldn’t be saying.

“Adagio... she asked me to…”


[Adagio Dazzle’s P.O.V.]


Rainbow and Applejack must have made it back to the house, as I heard a knocking from the door. I stood up but Sunset beat me to it.

“I’ll get it,” she said. I nodded and sat back down on the couch. Sunset went over and opened the front door, letting in Rainbow and Applejack. I looked around me and noticed a concerned expression on the girls’ faces. Sunset also held a concerned expression herself as the two walked into the living room. The girls and I sat there, eyes trained on the two.

“Did you catch the person? Or at least see who it was?” Sunset asked.

Applejack shook her head. “Nuh-uh. He was too fast fer us. We lost ‘im when we got to the main street,” she explained.

“I see,” I replied.

“My word, how did a scoundrel get into the place?” Rarity asked. We all sat there, blank expressions on our faces. Pinkie scratched her forehead. I could’ve sworn I saw a lightbulb above her head.

“Maybe they’re a spy? They’re gooood,” Pinkie said. The girls and I looked at Pinkie, confused. I shook my head, deciding to ignore her randomness.

“Adagio, you didn’t leave anything unlocked last night, did you?” Twilight asked me. I looked at her.

“I always lock everything before I go to bed or when I’m not home. I’m not sure how they could have gotten in,” I replied. The atmosphere felt different in the air. I could feel all eyes trained on me, especially Applejack—she seemed to hold a suspicion. I felt a twinge of uneasiness. Something wasn’t right. This is going to be difficult. Applejack can likely tell when a lie’s being told. Applejack leered at me as caught my stare. I inhaled a breath.

She closed her eyes, sighing before re-opening them again. “Adagio, ah’m mighty sorry if it feels like ah’m accusin’ you but… are you hidin’ sumthin’ from us?” Applejack asked.

Her question caught me off-guard. I felt nervous, shocked. I think Applejack’s onto something, I thought. I sat there in silence, unsure how to respond to her question.

“Well?” she urged. I felt sweat forming above my eyebrows.

“Applejack! There’s no need to ask such a question to the poor dear. She’s unaware as much as us,” Rarity defended. Bless her soul, I mentally smiled.

“But don’tcha think it’s weird? Think about it. The stench in the house when we got in, moanin’ sounds comin’ from the shower, the bed bein’ wet and letting off that same stench, and finally, someone in the house just snuck outta her door under our eyes after she said there was no one up here,” Applejack explained, pointing things out. I grew more worried. I don’t want to hide things from the girls, but I can’t let them find out.

“Hmmm… I’m not so sure about this, but Applejack does have a point about someone being in the house,” Twilight agreed.

“Are you serious?” I asked incredulously.

“You did ask us to leave your room,” Fluttershy piped in. I looked at her, causing her to ‘Eep!’ and hide behind her hair.

“Ah agree with her. Ah also noticed ya didn’t come down the stairs with us when you told us to go down to the livin’ room. What do ya think, girls?” Applejack asked, gazing at me suspiciously. The girls murmured in agreement.

Sunset sighed. “As much as I hate to admit it, I think I’m seeing where AJ’s coming from,” she said.

“Adagio, darling. Were you hiding someone up there? Please tell us,” Rarity begged. I sighed. There’s too much heat. I need to get it off me or at least some of it. I could perhaps shed some light without revealing too much. I looked at her and nodded.

“Okay, I admit. I was hiding someone up there,” I admitted defeatedly. “I had to keep you all busy so I could sneak them out of the house without being detected. It worked I guess… partially.” The girls gasped, some covering their mouths. Fluttershy let out another ‘Eep!’

“But... but why Adagio? Why were they hiding up there? Who was it?” Twilight asked.

“Look, I have reasons why I can’t tell you. Maybe soon, I’ll let you all know. Can you all please at least accept that?” I requested. The girls looked amongst each other before nodding in agreement. I sighed in relief, weight lifted off my shoulders.

“Sooooooo… is there any connection on the foul stench and the wet bed with the person hiding up there? Have you been seeing somebody?” Rainbow demanded, inches from my face. Applejack pulled her away.

“That’s enough, Rainbow. At least Adagio was honest enough to tell us that she was hidin’ somebody up there,” she justified.

“Thank you, Applejack,” I said. Applejack held a stern expression.

“You’re not out of the woods yet, but… we can understand and we won’t bother you about it no more until you’re ready,” Applejack said. Her stern expression slowly grew into a smile. She held her arms out. I stood up and accepted her embrace.

“Thank you, Applejack. That means a lot,” I whispered. She patted me on the back.

“No problem sugarcube. Just be more honest from now on okay?” I nodded. I could hear someone sniffing. Applejack and I pulled away from each other to see Pinkie sniffing, about ready to burst into tears.

“What’s wrong, Pinkie?” I asked.

“Seeing you two in a moment like this just asks for more hugs!” Pinkie quickly jumped out of her seat and embraced us both. Applejack and I were shocked but quickly recovered, letting her in on the hug. I felt the other girls huddle around us, hugging each other. I closed my eyes, smiling warmly as we cherished the tender moment.

“I’m glad to have friends like you all. Heck, probably proud to call you all like my own sisters,” I mumbled.

The girls gave a collective “awwww” in agreement. I felt the girls break away from the hug as I could hear a vibration sound. The girls checked their phones, curious to find out if they’d gotten any calls or replies. The girls were surprised, eyes wide.

“What’s wrong girls?” I asked.

“Clavier replied. He’s okay!” Pinkie pronounced cheerfully. The other girls sighed in relief as did I, not because of the same reason as them, but because he got away. I miss him already, I thought.

“And I thought someone had a vibrator on,” Rainbow joked. The girls and I remained silent, looking at Rainbow with stern glances. She began to grow uneasy. “Ah, hehehe? It was a joke?” Rainbow chuckled nervously. I rolled my eyes.

I cleared my throat. I checked the time and noticed it is now 12:30PM. Still got some time. I sighed mentally. “So girls, why don’t we all have some fun and relax? I was thinking we could go and drop by Clavier’s house later in the afternoon at 4 or 5ish?” I suggested. The girls nodded in agreement.


[Clavier Melody’s P.O.V.]


WHHHHAAAAAAATTT?!?!?!” Flash yelled.

“Shhhhh! Dude, stop yelling!” I shushed him, placing a finger to my lips.

Flash, still shocked, was scratching the back of his head sheepishly. “Sorry. It’s just… you said…” he stammered.

“Y-yeah,” I said sheepishly, scratching the back of my own head. “I know it’s hard to believe, but it’s the t-” I explained before being cut off.

“Enough of that! Who said you weren’t telling the truth? Heck, I’ve known you for a long time and you’re an honest person. What I’m trying to say is it’s shocking news. Let me recap this, you both admit your feelings, kiss, she asks you to stay with her, you did, and you wake up in her bed. Looks like you skipped the levels of dating my friend,” he smirked.

“Things just flowed and everything was just in the moment, okay?” I said frustratedly. Flash chuckled.

“Take a chill pill. You should be happy you’re a real man, more than I am. You should be even more happy that you got to do it with the girl you love,” he said reassuringly. I nodded.

“I know, but I didn’t expect it to happen,” I said. A devious thought came to mind. “Hey, you’re more of the ladies man than I am. How come you haven’t gotten any?” I teased. Flash’s face flushed into a red colour. He gave me a stern glare.

“Hey! Just because some girls like me does not mean I’m a ladies man!” he retorted. “I’m just waiting for the right girl I’ll get to spend my life with someday.” I chuckled.

“Oh, I can guess who that girl is?” I teased. This caught Flash’s attention.

“Who?” he asked, raising an eyebrow.

“Oh, you know,” I trailed, lifting my eyebrows. I coughed jokingly, sneaking the word “Twilight” into it.. Flash shoved me. I fell on the couch, laughing.

“Dude! I told you, I don’t have a thing for Twilight! For Faust’s sake,” he groaned.

“Oh yeah? I recall someone getting jealous last night,” I remarked.

“I-I was not jealous! I was just being protective!” he shot back.

“Suuuurrrrre,” I mocked. Flash rolled his eyes.

“Whatever, anything we can do?”

“Hmmm,” I thought, rubbing my chin. “We could jam for a while. I got my acoustic guitar upstairs.” Flash’s eyes lit up like a puppy.

“Yes!”


- 4 Hours Later -

[Adagio Dazzle’s P.O.V]


It is now 4:30PM. I got my phone out and opened up the messaging app.

Hey, me and the girls are about to leave. We’ll be around your house in 20 minutes. See you soon ;) XOXO - Adagio

I smiled and pressed ‘Send’ to Clavier. Not too long after, I got a notification. I checked my phone to see a reply from my boyfriend.

Hey love, yep! Flash and I will be here waiting. See you soon, miss you so much :) - Clavier

My heart fluttered inside. I smiled and put my phone away. I turned around to see Pinkie behind my back. “What’cha doing?” she asked. I jumped back slightly in surprise.

“Pinkie! Don’t do that! You’re going to give me a heart attack,” I sighed.

“Sorry! What’s got you smiling?” she asked, grinning.

“Nothing. Just feeling happy,” I smiled.

“That’s great! I’m happy when you and other people are happy!” she grinned wider. Faust knows how she can even do that. I shook my head. I turned to face the girls and clapped my hands.

“Girls! Are you all ready? We’re heading off to Clavier’s house,” I informed. The girls nodded and stood up.


[Clavier Melody’s P.O.V.]

- 19 Minutes Later -


Flash and I finished the end of the song after a long jam session. Flash patted me on the back. “Well done, brother! You’re still sharp as a knife!” he complimented.

“Thanks!” I smiled in appreciation. The doorbell rang. “That’s probably the girls. You ready to set off?”

“Yep. Let’s go!” Flash and I got up from the couch. I picked up the TV remote and switched it off while Flash opened the door. I went over to him where the girls stood outside. They waved merrily.

“Hey girls! Y’all ready to set out?” they nodded. I stepped out of the door, fumbling inside my pocket for my house keys. I locked the door and placed them back in my pocket as we left for the main street. The girls, Flash, and I walked quietly down the road. I was flanked on both sides by Rarity and Adagio. I feel like I have female bodyguards, I chuckled mentally.

“So darling,” Rarity spoke, gaining my attention. “Where’ve you been?” I grew nervous.

“O-oh, I’d been outside walking. I left my phone in the house since I thought I didn’t need it. I-I forgot to charge it too,” I lied. I felt guilty for lying to the girls, but it had to be done. I can’t let them know.

“Oh, I see. That’s a reasonable excuse I suppose,” she mumbled. I sighed in relief. Unexpectedly, Rarity slid her arm around mine. Adagio looked over to Rarity and gave a jealous, stern glare; she slid her arm around my right, making me blush.

“Um…” I muttered, unsure of what to say. I looked over to Flash, but he was in a deep conversation with Twilight. I smirked, but it quickly faded as I remembered my situation. I cleared my throat to gain their attention. They didn’t respond. I tried again.

“Um… girls? Is it okay if you can let go of my arms please?” I asked politely. Rarity slid her arm away. “My apologies, Clavier. I was just admiring… the scenery, I was lost in my thoughts,” she smiled. I felt Adagio’s grip on my right arm loosen as Rarity also let go. I looked at her, smirking.

“Jealous?” I whispered.

She gave me a stern glare. “You’re mine,” she replied through gritted teeth. I gulped.

“Of course I’m all yours,” I smiled nervously.

She leaned in, whispering in my ear in a seductive tone, “Good boy.” I blushed. We continued to walk down to the main street.

After a few more minutes of walking, we finally got there. We all decided as a group to go and watch a film at the cinema.

I stood in the queue along with Flash and the girls. I felt a tap on the shoulder. It was Adagio.

“Can we watch that film?” she pointed. I followed where she was pointing; The title said Destiny. I raised an eyebrow, looking into her eyes. “I don’t mind. Though, I’m not so sure about Flash and the girls,” I warned. I looked over her shoulder to see Twilight hugging on Flash’s arm, pointing. I traced it to the same film Adagio pointed.

“I think we’ll be accompanied by Twilight and Flash,” I smirked. She giggled.

“Aww, they’d make such a sweet couple. It’s a shame Flash’s not making a move on her.” I nodded in agreement. I suddenly remembered what came to my thoughts earlier today. I needed to ask Adagio.

“Adagio?” I asked.

“Yes?” she replied. I wanted to ask her, but noticed the girls were in the vicinity. I sighed and shook it off.

“Never mind, I’ll ask you later,” I sighed.

I noticed her frown, but I silenced it with a smile, which she returned. “Okay.”

I turned my attention to the others. “Hey guys? What would you like to see?” I asked. The girls crowded around me.

“I want to see the Wonderbolts movie!” Rainbow cried out happily.

“I’m with Dash on this one,” Sunset asked.

“Me too!” Pinkie exclaimed.

“I… I don’t know what to choose” Fluttershy said as she gazed at the options for tonight.

Applejack was also looking at the options, having a hard time what to choose. She soon gave up and sighed. “Aw, shucks! I’ll go with them! Looks good, too,” Applejack said. Rainbow cheered gleefully.

“Um… I want to see Destiny,” Adagio said.

“And I, as well,” Rarity chimed in.

“Ugh! You guys want to see some sappy movie? Boooooriiiing! I mean, come on! Wonderbolts movie is totally better! Epic, showstopping tale of adventure against the Darkness, Guardians being the only warriors powerful enough to stop it!” Rainbow proclaimed.

“What about you two? Flash? Clavier?” Sunset asked. Flash and I looked at each other, nodding.

“I’ll be going with these three,” I gestured.

“Flash?”

“I’m going with them as well,” he gestured to us.

“Ugh! You guys are boring! Have fun with your sappy romance movie!” Rainbow called out.

“Sorry about Rainbow. You know how she is, darling,” Rarity mumbled.

“It’s okay. It’s not your fault either. It’s no problem at all. Nothing I can’t handle,” I smiled. She nodded.

“We’ll meet you guys out here after the film’s finished?” I asked Sunset.

“Sure! We’ll text you if you’re not out yet,” she reassured. I nodded as we headed off inside. We paid for our tickets and parted ways to our chosen films. I opened the doors for the girls, waving them in to go first.

“Such a gentleman,” Rarity grinned, winking.

“Thanks, Clavier. That’s kind of you,” Twilight said. I smiled. I gestured Flash in.

“Go on, your lady needs you,” I grinned. He rolled his eyes. Lastly, I gestured Adagio in.

“After you, milady,” I teased. She giggled.

“Thank you, dear sir,” she teased back, playing along. I joined Flash and the three girls. The other seats were taken up, leaving a vacant seat between Rarity and Adagio. I sat between them. The film began. It was about a man and a woman who held feelings for each other. They eventually found out which blossomed into love. Kinda sounds like me and Adagio, I thought. I shrugged off the thought and focused on the film.


- 45 minutes later -


As the film went deeper into the plot, the romantic moments started to appear more often. I felt Adagio lean her head against mine. I smiled and let her nuzzle under my chin. I was tempted to put an arm around her, but it would be a dead giveaway to Rarity and Twilight if I did.


- 30 minutes later -


The widescreen morphed into black, engulfing the theatre into darkness. Shortly, the credits rolled in. The film was over. I looked over to my right to see Adagio still clinging onto my arm, asleep. There was also Rarity, who seemed to have been crying. I patted her gently on the back.

“Such a romantic film. I wish I could find the one for me one day,” Rarity sniffled.

“You will, I’m sure. You do have your gorgeous looks after all,” I winked. She blushed. I gently shook Adagio on the shoulder. Her eyes fluttered open, revealing her dazzling eyes.

“H-huh? What time is it? Is it over?” she asked. I pulled my phone out of my pocket to check the time. It was 7:15PM.

“Film’s over. It’s 7:15PM already. Let’s go. The others must have finished,” I guessed. I noticed Flash snoozing with Twilight’s head on his shoulder, an arm around her. I smirked and took my phone out, taking a photo. ‘Got you now,’ I laughed mentally. I shook them both awake. “Time to go”. We filed out of the room and made our way to the same spot Sunset and I agreed to meet up at. There they were, waiting.

“Hey guys, how was the film?” I asked.

“IT! WAS! AWESOME! You should have seen Spitfire doing these crazy moves, and Soarin performing a thundering barrel roll. Best movie ever!” Rainbow exclaimed with a fan-girl squeal. I chuckled. The other girls nodded in agreement.

“What about you? How was yours?” Sunset asked.

“It was pretty good actually. Romantic and dramatic. I picked up a lot on it from reading,” I explained.

“Pfftt. I knew it’d be boring. You’re as much an egghead as Twilight,” Rainbow huffed, crossing her arms. Applejack elbowed her. “Ow!” she complained. I ignored her.

“Anyone hungry? I sure am after watching the Wonderbolts movie!” Pinkie exclaimed. She dug up a piece of candy out of nowhere. I shook my head. We all decided to go to Sugar Cube Corner; luckily for us, it was still open. We went inside and were greeted by the pleasantly sweet scent of the place. We approached the counter with Mrs. Cake manning the till.

“Good evening, dearies! What can I get you?” Mrs. Cake happily asked.

“I’ll have a cup of tea and pain au chocolat,” I ordered.

“I’ll have some glazed donuts, lemon iced cake, chocolate pudding…” Pinkie went on. I drowned out her words as Mrs. Cake took the rest of the girl’s orders.

We ordered some pastries and baked goods, sat down, and enjoyed the rest of the night.

After some time, Sugar Cube Corner had to close since it was getting late and had to open early tomorrow as usual. We left the store and waved goodbye to the Cake family. Bless them.

“I’m tired, I think I’m going to head home,“Rainbow yawned.

“Already? And I thought the Dash doesn’t get worn out that easily. It seems the movie did tire you out,” I joked. I chuckled as Rainbow punched me on the shoulder, prompting the girls to giggle.

“Just because I’m the best doesn’t mean I don’t get tired either. An awesome athlete like me deserves some rest,” she said, pouting.

“I think I’ll be heading back home,” Adagio said.

“I’ll walk with you,” I offered. She nodded, smiling. I turned to face the girls who had eyebrows raised.

“What? We live near each other. I don’t know what you girls are thinking,” I said. They grinned sheepishly.

“Are you all free tomorrow?” Adagio asked.

“Ah’m gonna be busy tomorrow down at the farm,” Applejack said.

“I’m going to be helping with the critters at the shelter,” Fluttershy stated.

“I’ve got orders to finish at the boutique,” Rarity mentioned.

“I’ve got work tomorrow at Sugar Cube Corner. Sorry!” Pinkie said.

“Eh, I’ve got sports practice with the team,” Rainbow excused.

“I’m free tomorrow. I’ve got nothing to do,” Sunset said.

“I should be free. I’ve cleaned up the library and finished my list of chores,” Twilight said. Rainbow laughed. “What?” Twilight asked.

“Lists are for eggheads,” Rainbow indicated, chuckling.

Twilight frowned. “I’m just trying to be organized,” she defended.

“Flash, are you free tomorrow?” Adagio asked.

He shook his head. “Sorry, me and Clavier have some music practice tomorrow and next week, so we’ll be pretty busy.” Adagio looked at me as if she wanted me to confirm this. I nodded. She sighed.

“Don’t feel down, we’ll spend some time together,” Sunset smiled, patting her on the back. She smiled at her in return.

“Well, I’m heading off. Goodnight guys, and take care! See you all back on Monday!” I turned to Flash. “See you tomorrow, bud,” I said, waving. They waved back in return, and we went our separate ways. Adagio and I walked down the road back to our houses, hands held together. I decided to walk her back home first. I remembered what I wanted to ask Adagio earlier and now seemed like a good opportunity.

“Hey, Dagi?”

“Hmm?”

“I wanted to ask you something earlier, but not in front of the girls,” I stated.

“Oh, is that a kiss?” she smirked. She leaned in, making contact with my lips. We stayed there for several seconds before pulling away. “There,” she said.

“Um… hehehe,” I blushed, chuckling nervously. “Thanks, I missed you, but… that’s not what I wanted to ask,” Adagio raised an eyebrow.

“What was it you wanted to ask?”

I inhaled the fresh cold air. “Dagi, after last night, when... you know…” I trailed, blushing.

“Made love?” she finished.

“Yeah. I don’t think I had any protection on. I just… pulled out,” I mumbled, embarrassed. I gazed into her eyes.

“It’s okay. I’m on the pill. There’s nothing to worry about,” she gave a reassuring smile. I sighed in relief, but somehow, the nagging feeling was still present. We arrived at Adagio’s house not too long after.

“Goodnight, Clavi,” she bade.

“Goodnight Dagi,” I bade in return. I turned around, only to feel an arm grabbed. The next thing I knew, I felt sweet, luscious lips meet mine again. Adagio pulled away, catching her breath.

“Sorry, forgot to give you a goodnight kiss,” she said sheepishly. I chuckled.

“It’s quite alright. Being with you is enough for me,” I smiled. She waved as I did in return, walking back home.


[Adagio Dazzle’s P.O.V.]


I watched as Clavier walked down the road to my house. I stayed there until I could no longer see him. I sighed and opened my door, letting myself in. I trudged up the stairs and discarded my clothes, changing into my nightwear. I walked over to the bed and lay down. The smell from last night still hung in the room. I breathed in the smell. ‘Oh Clavier,’ I thought blissfully. I felt my eyelids become heavy as they closed, drifting off into sleep.
