Right Down the Line

“You’re not going to get in trouble for this are you, Berry?” Giftwrap asked her friend.

Berry’s answer was to give her friend a simple look that spoke volumes.

Giftwrap sighed. “So I’m going to take that as an answer I don’t want to know ” the other girl said, letting Berry come in. “Someday you’re going to get both of us in real hot water, you know that?”

Berry grinned. “I promise today won’t be that day!”

Giftwrap narrowed her eyes. “I have my doubts,” she drolled.

Berry put her hands on her friend’s shoulders. “Trust me, when have I ever steered you wrong, Gifty?”

Giftwrap took the diplomatic approach and decided to not say anything. Instead, she smiled and said, “Okay, just because you’re my best friend. But if you get in trouble I’m going to tell my parents you forced me.”

“They’re not going to believe that.”

Giftwrap sighed. “Probably not. So what do you need?”

“I need you to call this number.” She handed over her cellphone.

Giftwrap looked at the number. “Who’s this Sunset Shimmer girl? Doesn’t seem like anyone we know.”

“You don’t; she’s a friend of my babygirl.”

Giftwrap giggled. “Your babygirl?” When Berry mock-glared at her Giftwrap’s giggles turned into outright laughter which Berry soon joined in on. “Okay I’ll call her. What should I ask?”

“Have her come over and help me with my makeup. No offense, but we really don’t know much about dating, so we need a mature woman to help us with that.”


An hour later, Sunset Shimmer was at the house. “I’m not even going to ask how you have my phone number,” she stated to Berry.

“Actually, I got it from my older brother,” Berry admitted. “He got it from some guy named Flash Sentry. Do you know him?”

“All too well,” Sunset said in a tone that indicated she didn’t want to be bothered further about it. “So why did you ask me here?”

“Because I need a woman to help me with my makeup!” Berry told her. “Look, I want to make my first date special, and I don’t want to be just some little girl that Rose likes – I want to be the woman that she dreams of!”

Sunset smirked. “Don’t be in such a rush to grow up, kid,” she replied. “You’ll find that being a so-called adult has its ups and downs. Trust me, I know that from experience.”

“But even still I want to be Rose’s woman! I want to be sexy!”

“I know, but trust me, you’ll want to be pretty for her, not sexy. She likes pretty girls.”


Sunset smiled. “Trust me,” the teen advised. “I can tell.”

“Okay ” Berry replied, deferring to Sunset’s wisdom.

Sunset went over and grabbed the makeup that Giftwrap had with her: a mixture of lipstick for young girls and some stuff that were clearly hand-me-downs from either an older sister or her mother.

The flame-haired girl sighed; this was going to be a long night.


“You know I need your love
You’ve got that hold over me
Long as I’ve got your love
You’ll know that I’ll never leave
When I wanted you to share my life
I had no doubt in my mind
And it’s been you woman
Right down the line”

If there was one thing that Rose didn’t get about her brother, it was his fascination with 70s music. For some reason, her brother was an aficionado of the 1970s in general, but it mostly came to both music and clothing. Still, she loved her brother regardless, especially since it also meant that she got to borrow his car whenever she needed to. At least the car was modern, she had to admit.

Besides, Rose had to confess, albeit privately, the music occasionally had some charm to it.

As she pulled up to the address Berry had texted her, she was surprised to see Sunset Shimmer come out of the house. “I didn’t know you lived here,” she told Sunset.

“I don’t. I was asked to come in and make your date, quote, ‘look like a woman’ unquote.” The fire-haired girl smiled. “She’s got it bad for you, Rose. You’d better take care of her.”

“Believe me, I intend to,” Rose admitted with a blush.

“Well, I need to get going. I have a bad feeling I’m going to be needed at home, which seems to be the case a lot of the time lately. Have fun on your date!” With nothing more to say, Sunset walked off towards the subway station.

Rose walked towards the door and knocked. And as the door opened her jaw dropped. Sunset had clearly worked well - magic, for lack of a better term. Standing there was Berry, but not as Rose had ever seen her before.

Somehow, with just the makeup that Sunset had on hand, she’d managed to make Berry look just a bit older – closer to Rose’s age. The young girl looked flirty and playful, but not so much that she was trying to appear like a girl attempting to be a woman. If anything, Sunset’s artistry had made her present herself like a young woman trying to impress someone she cared about.

The simple beauty presented before her made Rose blush and with that flush, the emotions set a fire within her. Suddenly, her mind wasn’t so much preoccupied on the beauty that had just departed but instead on the one before her. Was this part of what Sunset had done? If so, Rose could hardly protest.

“Um … hi,” Berry said, shyly turning her head away and blushing.

“Hi yourself ” Rose parroted. “Are you ready to go?” she asked, and Berry nodded. With that, both girls walked towards the car ready for some fun.

“So what’s the plan?” Berry asked her.

“Dinner and a movie? I’m really … not that experienced with dates,” Rose admitted.

Berry gave her a smile. “Sounds fun!” In turn, Rose smiled back and as they buckled their seatbelts the younger girl couldn’t help but lean over and give the older one a kiss on the cheek. “Treat me right and you might just get another,” she teased.

“Did Sunset tell you to say that?” Rose asked.


Rose blushed even more; Sunset knew exactly what she was doing when she put things in motion, it seemed.


In theory, Forward Pass had invited his girlfriend Team Spirit over so they could both study for a test. In theory, the two of them had to keep their grades up so they could continue their sports programs, with him in football and her as a cheerleader. In theory, they had to do this at his place because his father worked evenings and so Ward had to stay home at night to watch over his kid sister.

In theory.

In reality, Ward and Spirit were in his room making out and things were getting intense. Finally he stopped in mid-kiss just as he had her shirt off. “Wait - something’s wrong.”

“You’re right something’s wrong,” she sighed. “You stopped.”

“No I mean--”

“Ward, your dad’s not here, your sister is being quiet, I’m horny and I have my shirt off - and you stopped. You better believe something’s wrong.” A thought crossed her mind. “Did you pick up the…?”

“Yes I did.”

“Then what are you waiting for? I’m one of the girls who got lucky enough to avoid getting caught by the Club and I need my boyfriend to devirginize me now!” She leaned forward to kiss him again and it got him to start again.

Yet as he removed his top he couldn’t help but feel that something was wrong; something he overlooked.

Something that was going to bite him hard when he least expected it.
