Chapter 2: New Friends

Sunset served her week of suspension without complaint. Other then her nightly nightmares, the week hadn't been too bad. Discord had returned from his business trip on Wednesday afternoon and had given Sunset a little lecture after he had gotten settled, he hadn't brought the issue up since. Now it was Saturday afternoon and Scootaloo's friends Applebloom and Sweetie Belle were spending the night, as were Applejack and Rarity. Rarity had brought a few movies for them to watch. The one they were currently watching had a guy named The Goblin King who looked human and nothing like a goblin, most of the characters in the movie were puppets.

"So, Rarity," Sunset said, "what other movies did you bring?"

"The Princess Bride, which is one of Sweetie Belle's favorites," Rarity answered, "and The Return to Oz, for us to watch after the girls go to bed."

"Oh I loved the Wizard of Oz, it was the first movie I saw when I first came here." Sunset said, she hadn't known that there was a sequel.

The phone started to ring but as Sunset started to get up to answer it he saw Celestia out of her home office and grab the phone as she waved Sunset back down.

"Uh, Sunset," Applejack said, "Return to Oz ain't nearly as heart warmin' of a tale as the Wizard of Oz, in fact at times it gets downright depressin'."

Sunset looked at Applejack and Rarity with some confusion. Then she saw Celestia walk back out of office and put the phone back in it's cradle.

"Girls, we're going to have another guest tonight," Celestia said.

"Rainbow Dash?" Scootaloo asked.

"Fluttershy?" asked Sweetie Belle.

"Pinkie Pie?" Applebloom asked.

"Trixie," Celestia answered before walking back into her office, "apparently Luna has a date tonight."

Discord walked into the living from the kitchen carrying three pizza boxes.

"Let's see, one small fiery Hawaiian pizza with extra pineapple and jalapeno for Scootaloo, one large cheese pizza and one supreme pizza." he said placing the boxes on the coffee table. Scootaloo took her pizza and placed it in front of herself.

"DISCORD!" Sunset yelled. The girls all turned and looked at Sunset, the color had drained from her face and she was staring at the pizza in front of her in horror. The girls looked down at the pizza, Sunset had asked for cheese. What she had been given was a pizza with all the toppings, including eggplant and anchovies.

Discord walked into the living room as Celestia walked in from her office to see what the commotion was about. They both looked at the situation, a grin slowly grew on Discord's face, and Celestia could only face palm. Discord grabbed the pizza from Sunset, then went back to the kitchen before returning with the cheese pizza. Celestia followed her husband into the kitchen making a show to slap him in the back of the head in from of all.the girls. She walked back out and into her office carrying a plate with several slices of the everything pizza. Discord followed her with a plate of his own and two bottles of beer.

Sunset had managed to eat two slices of pizza when the doorbell rang.

"I got it!" she called out. Getting up from the couch she walked to the door and opened it to find Luna and Trixie standing on the front porch. Trixie was holding a small bag.

"Come on in," Sunset said trying to sound friendly, "Celestia and Discord are in her office."

Trixie took a seat next to Scootaloo. Luna started to walk towards Celestia's office but stopped when she saw the pizza on the coffee table.

"Scootaloo," Luna said, "is that fiery Hawaiian?"

Scootaloo had a mouth full of pizza so she only nodded.

"May I?" Luna asked. Again Scootaloo nodded, and Luna grabbed a slice before heading into her sisters office.

She wasn't in there long.

"Ok Trixie, you behave and listen to your Aunt and Uncle," Luna said, "did you remember your insulin?"

"Yes mom," Trixie said, rolling her eyes and holding two insulin pens and her blood glucose meter. Nodding, Luna looked at her daughter a moment before going out the door.

"Sunset, may I have a slice of pizza?" Trixie asked.

"Uh, go ahead Trixie," Sunset answered.

Later that night after the CMC's had gone to sleep and Trixie had gone to the guest room, Cadence's old room, Sunset, Rarity and Applejack sat talking in Sunset's room.

"Looking forward to school on Monday Sunset?" Applejack asked.

"Huh," Sunset answered, "school, Monday?"

Sunset was trying to play it cool, but Rarity could see the panic in her friend's eyes.

"Is everything ok darling?" Rarity asked.

"Sure," Sunset answered, "everything's fine."

Rarity and Applejack could tell that Sunset was lying, but they chose not to say anything. There was a sudden burst of laughter from Scootaloo's room. Rarity got up to go check on the younger girls. When she entered Scootaloo's room, she found that the girls had set up a dart board with a well drawn picture of Sunset Shimmer as a demon taped to it and they were throwing darts at it.

"Sweetie Belle!" Rarity said.

"What," Sweetie Belle said, "it was Scoot's idea."

"Pffft, and if Scootaloo decided to jump off of a cliff would you?" Rarity said as she ripped the drawing off of the dart board.

"Um no-" Sweetie Belle started to say.

"It was a rhetorical question dear." Rarity stated as she walked out of Scootaloo's room and back into Sunset's.

"Make sure you have a snack in case you need it." Sunset was saying to Trixie as Rarity walked back in.

"I know," Trixie said holding up two packs of peanut butter crackers, "I also have a Gatorade in my bag."

"Goodnight Trixie." Sunset said.

That night passed rather uneventfully, as did the following Sunday, but as the day drew to a close, Sunset became more and more anxious about returning to school.

Author's Note:

Yes, I decided to make Trixie a type 1 diabetic. Type 1 Diabetes is a disease that struggle with everyday. Its also a disease my mother struggled with everyday of her life, may she rest in peace. I find that Type 1 Diabetes is one of the most misunderstood diseases put into fiction. I hope that that changes.

As always I appreciate questions and comments.
