Chapter Four: The Discovery

It was three days after their last visit that Shadow came over to see Flurry Heart again. And this time they did indeed go to the movies and see one sappy romance movie and even held hooves for a brief moment on the theater and they even blushed for a brief moment before they had to leave the theater (but this time they did share the popcorn together). After the movies, they went over to the lake to enjoy the view and talk a bit and Shadow teased her a bit and in particular for the thing he was about to do last time, and he almost did it but he stopped midway and claimed that he didn't know if the time was right or not and that they would know when the right time would be and the talk went something like this. “So, what did you think about that movie that we just saw?”

“Cheesy, fun, silly, and so cliché and over the top,” Flurry said.

“I couldn't agree anymore, but how about I show you the thing I was about to show you the last time I came over now that we’re free and alone?”

“That sounds nice and simply wonderful and splendid and incredible.”

“Well then, let’s see if this works out, shall we?” he asked with a smile slowly starting to lean in, but then midway he stopped, “Hmm, I don't know, maybe we’re not ready for this, maybe this isn't the time or place, after all, I do want to make sure that your very first time is extra special and one that you remember.”

“Well, if you say so, after all, you’re the expert on this stuff, right?”

“Well, I wouldn't call myself an expert on the subject, but I do know enough about it to be called knowledgeable in the field, if you know what I mean.”

“Maybe I do, maybe I don't, only time will tell,” she said teasing him.

“Indeed, but you are such a tease sometimes I wonder why I put up with you.”

“Because I’m a princess and royalty and you have to follow my commands.”

“Ah yes, that’s probably the most likely reason of them all, isn't it?”

“Indeed, but come on, it’s getting late and I need to get home,” she said.

“Well then, as you wish, my dear princess,” he said kissing her hoof and still smiling at her as she blushed yet again and then he took her home once again.

The pattern of their dates continued and changed over the next few weeks, but as time went on Cadence slowly started to get suspicious and wondered why Flurry wasn't asking to leave as soon as possible as often as she used to, and why she seemed to always be on the balcony every night that she saw her there.

And so, she formulated a plan in her own mind to catch Flurry Heart if she indeed was guilty. And soon enough after the idea came she enacted it.

The date night was the same as always with Shadow greeting her off, except this time Cadence was hiding and luring in the shadows to see it this time.

Flurry did her best to sneak up to her bed, but that was when her mother decided to step out into the light and confront her, “I see that you have decided to ignore my rules and instead choose to sneak off into the night all alone and also unsupervised too, and you were with that boy I bet, even more dangerous considering neither of us know who he really is. Sad really since you would have had your freedom soon, but now I cannot even trust you to keep simple rules anymore and I’m starting to think about cancelling your trip altogether or change the rules of it, and as punishment for leaving you will not be having any desserts for the entire month or maybe ever and yes, the trip is off indefinitely.”

“What? How could you do something like this to me? Don't you care about my happiness? What happened to you and why did it have to happen?” Flurry asked her furiously almost ready to start chucking random objects at her.

“Look, I know you think things have not been well ever since your father died, but I could ask you the very same things especially after you have broken one of my first and most important and simple rules of this castle, and so long as you live here you must follow them, if you have a problem with them then leave.”

Those last words gave Flurry an idea, “Well maybe I will,” she said.

“You could try, but the guards have orders not to let you leave at any cost.”

“Where there is a will there will always be a way,” Flurry said bluntly.

“We shall see, but that is all I have to say other than that I wish you to know I am only doing this in your best interests and that I will always love you and try to keep you safe, good night, and have dreams of a better future,”

“Trust me I will, it’s the only thing I can dream about anymore,” she said.’

With that said Cadence slammed the door behind her as Flurry plopped down on her bed and started to cry to herself furious at her mother for everything that she did to her trapping her inside a castle and taking away her freedom and also her memories and connections to her father and many more things as well, she just wanted the pain and misery and strife to end, and she just wanted to be free, but whatever was to come next wouldn't happen tonight and she was tired and she needed to get some sleep and so she sighed and slowly closed her eyes and soon enough she fell asleep to the powers of the nighttime. ���q���&
