Winter Kindness

Chapter One: Winter Kindness

“Fluttershy! What are you doing out here all alone in the cold? I swear that you’ll catch your death out here one of these days,” I said almost grumpily.

“Oh, sorry Rainbow Dash… I was just trying to help out some poor lost animals, they were just so far away from home and I started to talk with them and well, I just guess that I lost track of time, I’m sorry Rainbow Dash, I’ll try not to let it happen again, you’re not mad or upset at me?” Fluttershy asked me nervously.

I sighed a little as I gently flew down into the soft wet mushy snow beside her wrapping my right wing around her body gently like a newborn baby, one of the things that would never cease to amaze or impress me was Fluttershy’s never-ending ability to be, well, just so kind if I’m going to be honest here.

“Fluttershy, I’m not angry at you, I never have been and I probably never will be, I don’t know how many times I’m going to have to keep telling you this,”

“You’ll never stop saying it Dash because I’m too scared to ever take action against you, and you’re always too nice to me no matter how much trouble I get in, you’re always the brave one, the smart one, the courageous one…”

“And you Fluttershy, you’re the kindest mare that I’ve ever known, and you are quite literally the element of kindness,” I say snickering and smiling a little bit at her jabbing her side a little, “So saying you’re the kindest mare in all of Equestria would be no understatement, it would be the pure truth,”

“R-Rainbow Dash… stop saying things like that please, you’ll make me blush…”

“Well, that’s exactly why I say them, because you’re even cuter when you blush,”

Fluttershy’s face lit up bright cherry red at this compliment as she stuttered a little bit for some words, I laughed at her, if anything was cuter than a blushing Fluttershy it was a blushing Fluttershy left completely speechless.

“Alright then, come on, it’s time to take you home and warm you up,”

Fluttershy nodded her head lightly and gently at me as we trotted along back towards her cottage treehouse, something that she had owned for a very long time, in fact I can hardly ever recall a time where she didn’t have that house…

Me and Fluttershy were side by side now, trotting through the snow, everything around us shimmered with sparkling white brilliant glory because everything seemed to be covered in snow, no, not just covered in snow, blanketed with snow, yes, that’s the right word, blanketed with thick piles and massive amounts of snow, it was like a winter wonderland dream come true to life.

I could hardly believe it myself, but it was here right in front of me, all around me, it was one of the most amazing and beautiful things that I’ve ever seen before, or if I was around my friends instead I would rather say one of the most awesome things that I’ve ever seen before. It was just simply splendid and glorious, everypony’s mood seemed to be higher than usual, perhaps as high as the clouds in the sky themselves, or as high as the moon and stars instead.

I really can’t say… I’m not exactly an expert on mushy-gushy stuff and things like that, or beauty, well, except when it comes to a few things.

Colts and fillies of all ages and races ran around outside playing in the snow, rolling around in it, building snowponies, having snowball fights, the usual kid stuff, it was charming, sweet and adorable, just like Fluttershy…

I frowned a little on the inside, why was I thinking about Fluttershy so much?

I didn’t know why, but ever since this last summer I’ve been thinking about her and making comparisons of everyday things and random events against her, it was almost a daily occurrence at this point, at first I had reasoned that it was just because we were really close and best friends, but now my thoughts as of late were starting to turn into another direction instead… a direction that even I was scared of, yes, me, Rainbow Dash, Wonderbolt, element of loyalty, one of the bravest ponies ever in recorded history (no, I am NOT overselling myself, it’s the truth, deal with it), well, I was scared of something and I freely admit that.

I turned to look at Fluttershy, she only had this cute little red scarf and nothing else, she must have been freezing without anything to wear…

Naturally enough I was concerned about this, that girl could get so caught up in caring for others that she sometimes forgot to take care of herself first.

I was so lost in thought at this point that I had barely even noticed that we were already at the door to Fluttershy's house, I barely managed to avoid bumping my nose into the door as I nervously open up with a little blush and sly but also awkward grin too. Fluttershy merely smiled back at me with her soul piercing eyes that could shatter the heart of anypony that made her cry, and her smile could melt the heart of even the grumpiest and most negative of ponies too.

“Fluttershy, want some hot coco, maybe get the fire ready, or would you rather I get the tea kettle pot and some water and use the water for tea instead?”

“Uh, maybe a little of both if you don’t mind?” she asked me politely.

“Yes, of course, but you’re okay, right? No frozen or stiff joints or feathers, no frostbite or anything else like that?” I asked her trying to see for myself.

“No, of course not, but thanks for asking anyways…” she said.

“Of course, you’re the most important and beautiful thing in my life…”

The moment I said that I swore to myself internally, drat, why did I have to say that out loud right in front of her? It was just so stupid and dumb, argh!

Fluttershy could only manage one of the brightest and reddest blushes that I’ve seen from her in her entire life, and I would know the best since I spent so much time with her. What would she say? What would she think? Was she going to hate me for this? No, she would never, but still it was scary to think of what could happen, but luckily, I wouldn’t have to wait very long to hear what she had to say to me. “Rainbow Dash, that’s so sweet and nice of you, but you don’t have to say that just for my sake, I know that we’re really good and close friends and all that good stuff too, we’ve shared so much of our lives together, so many important memories, but am I really the best thing in your life? What about the Wonderbolts? Isn’t that also important to you? What about your other friends?”

Damn it, why did she have to ask that question? Of all the things that she could have said, of all the ways that she could have reacted and she choose this route/pathway, how could I have been so foolish and stupid to not see this coming from a mile away? I don’t know, but I was blind to something here.

“Well, if I had to choose between them and you it would be a really hard and tough choice, but I’d never want to hurt you most of all Fluttershy,”

Fluttershy let out a weird strange sound that was sort of like a “meep!” or something like that instead, the sound was certainly adorable and sweet and totally cute too, just like Fluttershy. “Even when you’re just being you, just being shy, well, you’re still the most beautiful and amazing thing in this room,”

Fluttershy just couldn’t stop blushing, “Dashie, you don’t need to say that…”

“I wouldn’t say it if it weren’t true, you’re simply splendid Fluttershy,”

She blushed even more, “Why are you saying these things?”

“Because I want to, and it’s the truth too, besides, I don’t nearly compliment you enough, and it is the holiday season, just accept it and roll with it,” I said.

“Well, I’ll try my best Dashie, but I make no promises,” Fluttershy said.

“That’s the spirit, try to keep that attitude up, okay?”

“Oh, uh, alright, I’ll try, thanks for your kind words,” she said.

“No problem,” I said smiling warmly back at her as I quickly trot to the kitchen and turn on the stove to heat up some hot water for the teas and coco and soon enough both she and I were sipping coco in front of a blazing hot and warm fire snuggled up together in a very cute and adorable manner/way.

What in the wide world had I gotten into with her now?
