Anonymous And The Nightingale - Thunder Wolf

Anon asks out Rainbow Dash, only to be shot down

  • ...

The Day That We Changed Him

"W-What did you say, Anon?" Rainbow Dash said with the most shocked and dumbfounded look that you've seen. You grab and tug nervously at the insides of your pants pockets,

"I love you Rainbow, I have for a long time now and I felt that since today is Hearts and Hooves day...It was the perfect time to ask you." You looked on at Rainbow, still wearing a look of massive confusion her face until she gave you a look of sympathy"On no." You thought,

"I'm sorry Anon, but I can't date you. You're just not a-a pony and I need a stallion that's athletic, somepony to keep up with me. I'm not trying to hurt you but you don't really fit the athletic type."

"So that's why?"

"Yeah....I'm sorry but I just don't see you like that." Your mind and body were brimming with sadness as you contemplated ways you could hopefully change her mind, even though her mind is made up. Looking down at the ground on the brink of tears, you grab the shattered remnants of your heart, humility and pride. You then made your way out of her home,

"Anon wait, we can still be friends right?" She said wrapping her hoof around your left arm, upon feeling her soft fur make contact with your naked skin sent a shiver down your spine as you turned to her. As you looked down at her you became lost in her features, those big beautiful magenta eyes, her rainbow colored mane and tail, and that cute little nose. Mustering a fake smile you respond to her question,

"Y-Yeah of course, Rainbow Dash." When she heard your answer she gave a smile.

"Cool, and not to sound rude or anything but I have to get to go to work for a night shift, aaand I'm kinda running late." You nodded and opened the door to leave, during the short trip over to Twilight's hot air balloon, thoughts ran through your head,

"Why can't she see past the fact that I'm human? Am I really that repulsive to her? Will she ever love me?"

"Anon!" Twilight shouted waving, you took a seat as she began to feed the hot air balloon with the much needed fire.

"How'd it go? What'd she say?" Twi asked while tending to the balloon,

"She said no." This made Twilight's ears fall to the side of her head as she turned around,

"I'm sorry, a-are you okay?"

"Yeah, I'm fine. But, can you drop me off at the bar instead, I could use a drink."

"Sure." The ride was about 5 minutes but the lingering thoughts that plagued you made it seem exponentially longer. Once you got to the bar, Twilight rested a hoof on your shoulder,
"Take it easy, Anon."

"No problem." You said rather flately, as you step into the bar. The bar keep turns around when he hears you sit on the stool,

"What can I get ya?" He asked cleaning out a cup with a magically manipulated cloth.

"Strongest whiskey you got."

"Comin' right up." He says levitating a bottle of whiskey over to a shot glass.

"Leave the bottle,"

"Well, now. Sounds like your drinking to forget."

"Oh, trust me I am. How much is a bottle?"

"37 bits." You set down the bits, grabbed the bottle and made your way towards a dimly lit booth on the right side of the main entrance. You took off the cap of the poison but before you could indulge in it, you heard a certain tomboyish laugh that you had come to love.

"Soarin stop!" She said playfully while slugging Soarin with a hoof. From what Rainbow Dash told you, Soarin was a member of the Wonderbolts. After he rubbed the spot Dash punched, Soarin then proceeded to take his hoof and slid it down her back to her plot. She reacted by turning her head with a lustful look in her eyes, then she kissed him on the lips. When they broke from each other's lip lock, Rainbow Dash opened her eyes to see you staring at them both with the flickering light of the booth giving a sinister tone to the already malevolent face you were shooting at them. Seeing that blue angel you fell in love with kissing with that pie obsessed fuckwit ignited a bitter, resentful, rage inside of you, you didn't feel sad and heartbroken anymore. Then, Dash spoke,

"A-Anon what are you doing here?" This made Soarin give you a quizzical look. You stayed silent while taking a swig of the whiskey, putting the bottle down, you look back up at them.

"Don't worry about that. How was the night shift?" You say flately. That remark made Rainbow's eyes widen. Fed up with sitting through this awkward "Mexican Standoff", you got up and spoke aloud so that everypony in the bar could hear you, "Hey Soarin, good job buddy! I thought you just loved pies not mares but awesome work getting the most sexy and amazing pegasus mare in all of Equestria! Well, that's what I thought her." Your loud sarcastic tone got everypony's attention. "I mean what was I expecting, I'm a human and she's a pony?! Yep, that's it isn't it? Anon: a scrawny, pitiful, ape; that's what I am!" That made everypony gasp. Rainbow Dash was on the verge of tears at the sight of her devastated and distraught friend. Soarin saw her eyes glazing over and decided enough was enough. He flew towards you,

"Listen up Anonymous, I don't know what happened between the two of you, but I do know that if you make her cry I will kick your ass!"

"You know what? To hell with love, to hell with holidays, to hell with friends!" This made silence fall upon the whole bar, you lost all control and like a dying star, all the anger burned out of you, only to be replaced by repressed sadness and the tears streamed freely down your cheeks, "Do you know what I've been through?! Huh?! Do you?! Ever since I have come here, I have been loveless! Every Hearts And Hooves' Day, every Hearth's Warming Eve! Alone! I took up dating, but that was a monumental failure, every date couldn't get to 3 minutes when ponies found out it was with me! So guess what, fuck all of you!" You screamed at them all. With no more words, you crumbled to your knees with everypony trying to comfort you, pushing them back, you snarled, "Stay away from me." And with the whiskey bottle in your grip, you ran home never turning to look back.
