I say my goodbyes and jog all the way to her car. When I enter the car she turns to me with wide shocked eyes.

“Ar… are you alright Rarity? Did you see someone? Was it Trender?”

“A… no, I was, I just realized something and I uh I’m alright… um let’s get you home.”

“You sure? Cause it seemed like y…”

“I said I was fine!” She says hastily. I stare at her and try to see if she was really ok but she wouldn’t look at me. I turn to look out the window the entire way home.

When we arrived I take my time to get out of the car and still she wouldn’t look at me.

“Rarity please, if it was something I did I would like to know so I can make it right.” I say and she shakes her head.

“Are you not gonna talk ta me? What did I do? Was it saying yes to go play football with your family? If it is then tell me and I won’t go.”

“Why would you do that for me? I was not the one who invited you to play football with us.”

“It seemed like you wanted me to go! Now you don’t want me too?”

“It should be up to you and not if I want you to go or not!”

“I want to go because of you and if you don’t want me there or even here, I’ll go!”

“Why?! Why do all that for me?”

“You’re my friend! If you’re mad at me for something then I’ll give ya space to cool off or something like that.”

“You know what I’m asking you Applejack, don’t act like you don’t know!”

“I honestly don’t know! How’s about ya ask me what ya want and I’ll answer it honestly!”

“...I’m afraid of the answer.”

“You’re not making any sense! What do you want me to say? I’m sorry for something I di...”

“How long have you had feelings for me?”

All at once everything stopped.

“Wh-what are you talking bout? I.... I uh I d…”

“Applejack, please, give me some credit. I have noticed the way you look at me. How you seem to always try to make my day better. How we fight constantly but always end up apologizing before the day is out. I ... I do have an attraction towards you, I’m just afraid of what will happen if we pursue this.”

“It’s not like I was hiding my feelings for ya Rarity. I guess I wanted ya to pull it out of me...a cowards way out.” I say and look out the window.

“Applejack, I like you more than a crush… but I won’t... I can not pursue a relationship with you.”

“Is it the way I hate all the fru-fru attire? I’ll learn to tolerate it, the same way I’ll make sure every moment spent with me is not a waste of time!”

“I like you because of what you dislike about my world! I need the reality of things in my life and you come with it, more than I like to admit.”

“So, what’s the problem? I like you, you like me let’s try one date. If it works then it works, if not then at least we can say that we tried.” I ask hopefully, but Rarity never once looks up from her lap.

“Applejack… I do like you, please don’t think otherwise. I, I think we work well as friends and nothing you say will change that. I’m sorry… I’ll...see you at school tomorrow.” Rarity says and unlocks the door. I stare at her one last time and exit the car. Before I close the door I lean in and say softly.

“Rarity, I know that you believe we're just friends but listen ta me when I say that I will try everything I can think of ta show ya that we are perfect for one another…. Night Rarity.” I say and close the door. I slowly make my way up the stairs and hear the car drive away. I stop before I enter the house and finally let the conversation catch up to me.

It happens all at once, my knees give in, my heart wrenches and tears threaten to come down. I let out a low grunt when I hear Granny approach the door with Big Mac.

“I tell ya there be somethin’ out there and it ain’t ya sister.” Granny says as she hastily walks to the door. I jump up and sprint all the way to the main road and don’t stop till I run into something solid. I drop to the floor and look up with pure rage, until I see who it is.
