The Tea

"But I don't get it Twilight. Why the hell do so many ponies think I'm a purple dinosaur?" asked Spike.

"Watch your language Spike! This tea with the Princess is very important to me and I don't want anything to go wrong." said Twilight with a stern voice.

To which spike replied with a silly voice, "Calm yourself Twi."

Twilight then gave him a very serious look and snapped spike right out of his cocky mood. They then walked into the luscious castle, spike all dressed up in his tuxedo and Twilight in her dress from her best night ever, being greeted by all their friends. "Well howdy there, I see ya'll dressed up all fancy like." said Applejack from behind.

Twilight then turned around and replied, "Well this is hosted by the Princess, so we need to look our best. Don't we spike?"

"Ye-yeah… of course. Well I'm going to go mingle. Don't wait up." said Spike walking off.

"Come on Applejack, let's go find Princess Celestia and let her know we're here." said Twilight.

As they wondered around the castle looking for the princess, they were approached by two handsome stallions. "Well hey there ladies, why don't you come with us to the bathroom and help us… adjust our ties?" The stallions said to Twilight and Applejack.

Twilight then replied, "I don't know if we should-"

"We would love to, just one second though" Applejack said interrupting Twilight.

"Applejack! What in Equestria do you think you're doing?" Twilight whispered strictly to Applejack.

"Come on Twilight, it will be fun. And hey, you might just get lucky in there." Applejack replied.

"Bu-wah!" Twilight yelped as Applejack forced her into the bathroom with the stallions.

Applejack immediately started making out with her stallion yet Twilight was less than enthusiastic about the situation. "Come here sweet thing." said the stallion going in for the kiss. As their lips met, Twilight was a little bit surprised but she accepted it. "Yeah! Now you're getting into it!" Applejack yelled.

"Ahem!" They all snapped their heads to look at the bathroom door. Princess Celestia was standing there, shooting them all an evil glair. The stallions immediately ran off. "Now this behavior I would expect from Applejack…" Princess Celestia was saying as Applejack buried her head with an awkward grin on her face, "but not you Twilight. I thought, as your teacher, that you had better standards than that but I guess I was wrong." Twilight felt a pit in her stomach, as if it was eating her away from the inside out. A single tear trickled down her cheek as she ran off in shame.

Spike and Rainbow Dash noticed her run out of the castle sobbing. "Twilight, what's-" Spike yelled as Twilight ran out of view. They discharged the castle chasing after her.

"Twilight, slow down!" yelled Rainbow Dash. Twilight then halted right in her tracks and fell to her knees in sorrow. Spike and Rainbow Dash then caught up to her. "Are you okay Twilight?" asked spike, deeply concerned for his best friend.

Twilight tried to say something but she was so overwhelmed with ruefulness that she couldn't stop weeping. After finding solace within her friends; Twilight managed to explain what happened at the castle. "Oh… I can see how that's bad." Rainbow Dash said. She was then hit thinly on her flank by Spike to shut her up.

"What she meant to say was, the princess is a very forgiving pony and I'm sure-"

"But it's not that I'm worried about Spike! It's the fact that now…" she paused to wipe her tears, "now she's probably lost all respect for me and, and…" she resumed crying.

"Maybe we could, you know… stop by your house and play some games or something." Rainbow Dash said not caring about how boring that sounded.

"I'm not sure I feel up to it." Twilight said finally ending her weeping.

"Come on Twilight, It will be fun." said Spike. Twilight then restarted her out cry.

"Was it something I said?" Spike asked looking confused.

"Oh man… look at the time; I better get going to the… thing at the place." Rainbow Dash proclaimed right before quickly flying off.

"But you don't even wear a watch!" Spike exclaimed; Rainbow Dash barely in ear shot of them. "That bitch has been spending too much time with Rarity." Spike uttered under his breath.

Spike soothed Twilights sorrow until she stopped crying and worked up the nerve to walk back to their home.

"I'm so sorry you had to see me like that. I'll just send her a formal apology and everything will go back to normal. Right?"

"Yeah, like I tried to tell you before, the princess is a very forgiving pony and besides, you've been her star pupil ever since you were a filly. So I really don't think that one incident will break you twos friendship." Twilight at this point had an angelic smile on her face.

"Thank you so much Spike, you just always know what to say to a girl don't you?" asked Twilight giving Spike an unexpected hug. Twilight then said, "Well there's no reason we can't have a wonderful night. I read up on some ancient activities that the humans use to partake in."

"What do you have in mind?" asked Spike.

To which Twilight replied, "Well there is this game called poker that was played with fifty two playing cards and… are you getting all this?"

"well… I understood game." Spike replied.

Twilight let out a sigh and explained all the mechanics of poker to Spike.

She then said, "You do know that this game was originally banned from Equestria due to the fact that it involved gambling. Lucky for us, I constructed deck of playing cards just for an occasion like this."

"Well then what are we waiting for, let's play!" Spike said excitedly.
