“... I don’t suppose you would be alright if we joined the table?” Rarity asks the girls since I have my attention strictly on my hot chocolate.

“Well, we are leaving soon. So, go right ahead.” Rainbow cleans up hers’ and Fluttershy's spot with a napkin. She stands up and holds out a hand to Fluttershy, who takes it gently. Twilight is putting on her sweater, Sunset pushes their chairs in, Pinkie has an ice cream, Cheese leaves a tip on the table. I feel my cup and find it cold enough to down it. I do and get up with the group. I pass Rarity and give her a small smile and exit the café. Once outside I release my breath and walk towards Fluttershy's van.


After we headed back to the school to get our rides. Sunset dropped Twilight off at her home, Fluttershy said goodnight to Rainbow, and Pinkie drove Cheese and I to her house for another practice session.

“I like the song you wrote AJ, the thing is, I don’t think it’ll make the point you are trying to get across.” Pinkie says as she plays with Gummy.

“Alright, well what do ya suggest?”

“I think we can make a great mix and you dance like you’ve never danced before.”

“Hehe, I only dance for special occasions.”

“That might be true for all of us, but we’ve got your back.” Sunset says as she walks up to the garage with Rainbow Dash right behind you.

“Yeah, we heard what Pinkie had to say while you were having your moment with Rara.” Rainbow teases. I roll my eyes and walk over to Cheese Sandwich.

“Going over what you already gave us. I, more importantly Curly cue here, came up with this sweet beat that goes perfectly with your lyrics.” he says and plays the mix.

“Quite catchy, now uh Pinkie said somethin’ bout dancin’?”

“Follow me ladies and you shall have your girlfriends glued to you the entire night.” Cheese says as he instructs us to our places and teaches us the dance.

Three Hours Later

Sunset, Rainbow and I are out of breath as we finish the last of rehearsals.

“Th… this is why I stay in sports. Cheese, how can you be standing there all calm and not out of breath?!” Rainbow says as she takes a water bottle from Pinkie.

“I perfected these steps last night and tested them all day today so I wouldn’t look like you guys right now.” Cheese says and starts to stretch. I follow his lead and after a few minutes I hear my phone go off. Pinkie finds it in my backpack and hands it to me. I see it’s Apple Bloom and answer it.

“What’s up Apple Bloom?”

“Hey sis, Granny wants to know if you’re on your way home yet?”

“Yes, tell Granny I’ll be there soon.”

“Alright, see ya then.”

I hang up and see Rainbow and Sunset getting their stuff ready.

“Thank ya’ll, for helping me out. I don’t know what would’ve happened without ya’ll”

“You would’ve written a sappy country song and tour the late night crowd of even bigger saps that would buy whatever demo you could make for a buck.” Rainbow says and I roll my eyes.

“Sounds pretty accurate to me.” Sunset says and throws me a helmet. I nod and exit the garage.

“See ya guys tomorrow!” I call out to Pinkie and Cheese. They wave back and close the garage door. Sunset starts her motorcycle and Rainbow gets on her bike while clasping her helmet in place.

“Tomorrow's the day, huh.”

“Seems like it.”

“Whatever happens, Rara will help pick up those pieces.”

“Night Rainbow.”

“Later you two.” She says and speeds off on her bicycle. I hop on the back of Sunsets and we speed away to Sweet Apple Acres.

Once we get there I hand Sunset my helmet and head toward the front door.

“Hey Applejack, are you sure about this? I know this might be a great idea right now… but what about after all the adrenaline wears off? What then?”

I take a couple of seconds to hear and understand what Sunset is saying.

“I guess the only answer I can give ya is yes. I would move mountains for this gal, and it doesn't matter if we end up together or not… I’ll always be there for her. I- I just want her to be happy."

“... guess I’m glad you had eyes only for Rarity and not Twilight. I would of lost to you in a heartbeat.”

“She always had my eye… I just never wanted to admit it.”

“Get some sleep. We have a big day ahead of us.” Sunset says and speeds off into the night.

Rarity Belle, what have ya done ta me?
