Purple Skies - WinterTwister

  • ...

Day 3 of the Festival. Part 1

Twilight woke up to the morning sun, she had never slept that well before. She could hear the snores of Soarin' downstairs where she offered him to sleep that night. Twilight now knew a great deal about him, and it only increased her love of him. Twilight heard a knock at her door so she raced down to answer the door to prevent another knock that would wake Soarin', it was Rarity.

"Good morning, Twilight. Are you all set?" Rarity said with a smile.

"Set for what?" Twilight was confused.

"My word, Twilight! You haven't forgotten have you?"

"Uh... Maybe?"

"Today is the Iron Pony competition and we promised AppleJack we would watch her compete!"

Twilight remembered the promise she made to AJ while working at her farm before the festival. "Oh! I completely forgot! Let me go back upstairs and fix my mane." Twilight turned and started heading for the stairs before she heard a loud whisper from Rarity.

"Twilight, who is this?" Rarity said while snickering and pointing a hoof at the snoring Soarin'.

Twilight turned back around and went up to Rarity. "That's Soarin', don't wake him up please, he was awake all-night."

Rarity blushed and giggled. "Doing 'what' exactly?" She had put alot of emphasis on the word what.

Twilight was confused. "What do you mea-...." Twilight blushed and gave her head a shake. "No, Rarity, we didn't."

Rarity continued to giggle. "Okay, Twilight. I believe you."

Twilight knew she was lying, but ignored it and continued back up her stairs to use her mirror.

Rarity looked over at the sleeping Soarin' and recognized him as a WonderBolt. 'Oh my.. how lucky Twilight is. I must tell the others later!'

Twilight walked down her stairs. "Okay, lets get going Rarity."

"You aren't just going to leave your dashing new coltfriend here on his own are you?"

Twilight thought for a moment. "Here, I'll leave him a note telling him where we went."

"I can't wait to meet him when he wake up." Rarity said while walking out of the door.

"He's just wonderful, you'll love him." Twilight said while closing her door and joining Rarity on her way to the competition fields.

Rarity brought her phillyish giggle back. "Now, Twilight, don't hold out on me, you must tell me 'everything' that had happened last night!"

Twilight face hoofed and just sighed.


(30 minuets later)

Spike poked Soarin'. "Hey pal, wake up."

Soarin yawned and turned over. "Just 5 more minuets..."

Spike poked him again. "Hello?"

Soarin' rolled over with a sleepy smile on his face. "Twilight?"


"Oh, well good morning uh.."


"Spike, Right."

"You want anything to eat?"

Soarin' felt his morning hunger set in and looked up at Spike. "If it's not too much trouble."

"No problem, I have a feeling I'll be seeing you around often anyway." Spike turned to walk into the kitchen.

Soarin' got up from the couch and rubbed his eyes. He looked at the table next to him and saw a small piece of paper, he picked it up and read it.

Soarin', Sorry to leave you, but you were sleeping so well. I promised my friend AppleJack I would watch her compete today. Spike should offer you breakfast, hes a great cook! I'll be at the competition fields. ~ Love Twilight.

Soarin' thought of Twilight after reading the note. He already missed her bright smile and beautiful mane. 'I should go soon to join her.'

Spike called from the kitchen. "It's ready, I'll bring it to you at the table."

Soarin' went to the table he found in another room and waited for Spike. Spike came into the room with a plate of pancakes and set them in front of Soarin'.

Soarin' took a bite of the pancakes and his eyes lit up. "Spike these are delicious!" He started shoveling in the pancakes with a laugh from Spike.

Soarin finished his pancakes and asked Spike, who was still eating. "Hey Spike, where are the competition fields?"

Spike swallowed a mouth-full of pancake. "I'll take you there, I told AppleJack I would watch her today too."

"Oh cool, is she your girl?"

Spike choked on another piece of pancake. "N-no! .... well maybe. I'm not so sure... hey Soarin' can I ask a favor?"

Soarin' raised an eye-brow. "Yeah?"

"C-can you tell me how to talk to girls better?"

Soarin' had never been asked this question before. "Oh..uh.. I have no idea, sorry."

"But you and Twilight got together so fast, you sure you don't have any tips?"

Soarin' thought for a moment. "Well, I guess if you really like her, stuff should play out just fine, just do whats natural!" Soarin' said smiling at Spike.

Spike scratched the back of his head with a light smile. "Alright thanks, Soarin'."

Spike grabbed his and Soarin's empty plate and took them to the kitchen.

Spike came back and Soarin' stood up. "All set to go?"

"Yeah lets go." Soarin' said while he and Spike exited the library.
