About Last Night

About Last Night

The morning light filtered into Octavia’s room as Celestia raised the sun. The light illuminated her bed which was a mess of sheets and pillows from the night before. The two mares lay cuddled into each other as the light bothered Octavia’s eyes. She groaned and shut her eyes more trying to stay asleep and avoid the impending hangover that was sure to come when she opened her eyes. She rubbed her face into the soft pillow that she had been resting on, but something was off about it. It was steadily rising and falling, warm and she could hear a heartbeat with it. She opened her eyes and was shocked to see she was laying on a sea of white fur, Vinyl’s fur. She tried to sit up but the DJ’s strong forelegs was wrapped around her. “Oh no... Oh no oh no sweet Celestia no.” Octavia said franticly trying to get out of the grasp of her friend. In one last attempt she shot up as quickly as she could and the force made her fall off the bed waking the DJ.

“Huh? Wha?” The DJ looked around the room. It was Octavia’s room and the memories of last night washed over her causing her eyes to widen and frantically think. Oh my gosh, that's right. Me and Octavia did it last night... Oh sweet Celestia what do I do? What do I Do?! Okay Vinyl, let's not panic, play it cool, just like DJ Pon3 would...What would DJ Pon3 do in this situation... Thoughts played in her mind before she noticed a dark spot on her chest and chuckled softly. Got it. “Wow Octy, I didn’t know you drooled in your sleep, or do you only drool over awesome mares like me?”

“Um no… I um…” Octavia blushed deeply as this was new for her. Sure, she had fillyfriends before and experienced such things but not with her best friend. “I don’t… Did we? What happened last night?”

The DJ stood up on the bed and looked it over. “What happened last night? Do you really want to know?" She said with a grin.

“Vinyl please get serious.” Octavia said and groaned. She wasn’t in the mood to play games with her head pounding the way it was. She closed her eyes and rubbed her temple with a hoof. “Oh, my head is killing me.”

“Isn't it obvious Octy. We bucked all night, I have to say though, I never pegged you for a screamer.” answered the DJ smiling foalishly.

“Oh, Celestia no. How could I... with my best friend? I mean sure we are… What was the plan again?” Octavia asked herself thinking and hissed as the hangover looming over her. “Oh, right we are...” She stopped and blushed more shaking her head. “That can’t be right.”

“Well it is right, we got engaged and had crazy…” The DJ started but stopped with a glare from Octavia.

“Can we please not talk about the events of last night?” She asked giving a stern look over at Vinyl.

"I don't see why it's such a big deal?" answered Vinyl who got up to stretch.

Octavia was about to respond when she noticed something on the white mare that made her blush profusely. “W-why is my bowtie around your thigh Vinyl?” She asked becoming more embarrassed by the second.

Vinyl looked down and blushed for a second before remembering that she needed to play it cool. She gave Octavia a devious smile and replied “I thought you didn't want to talk about last's nights buck fest.”

This comment earned Vinyl a stern look from Octavia, but continuing to play the part of DJ Pon3, she just started to the bathroom to take a shower. She put a hoof on the door and looked back at the cellist “I will say that you are very talented though. I've never been with a mare so flexible before.” said the DJ winking at Octavia and walking through the door.

Octavia fell to the floor and covered her head with her legs. “VINYL!” Octavia exclaimed embarrassed and blushing like mad now.

Vinyl popped her back out of the door “Oh and let me just say that your cello isn't the only thing you can handle with skill.” Teased Vinyl twirling Octavia's bowtie around her hoof.

"V-Vinyl Scratch, stop that this instant...and give me back my bowtie." Demanded Octavia walking over to the DJ face flush with embarrassment and anger.

"Are you sure? You know where it's bee_OW" The DJ was cut short by a hoof smacking the top of her head. "What was that for?" asked Vinyl rubbing her head.

"That was for being insensitive." Replied Octavia grabbing her bowtie and putting it back on. “Now, we will forget this mistake ever happened and you will not mention this to anypony EVER.” Octavia order.

“Awww, your no fun Octy. And here I wanted to tell Lyra and Bon Bon." replied the DJ shutting the door and walking into the shower. She really was happy that they did it but she also was hiding her embarrassment from her with the teasing. She was actually more scared that Octavia would find out her true feelings, especially after hearing her call it a mistake.

Octavia walked into the bathroom and huffed. “If you tell anypony, so help me Vinyl.” She said before rubbing her head. “This bucking headache.”

She walked to the cabinet and took some aspirin. “You know what Vinyl. I am going to make Pancakes but you are not welcome to any if you plan to tell anypony about last night.”

“But pancakes.” Whined the DJ from inside the shower but Octavia had already left the bathroom and headed to the kitchen. When she was sure she was alone the DJ hoofpumped and thought. Nailed it. For the time being, the DJ was able to hide her true feelings for Octavia a little while longer.

When the cellist got to the kitchen she started making the batter slowly, trying to make as little noise as possible. She grumbled as this morning could have gone better. Of all the ponies she had to sleep with, it had to be Vinyl. She shook her head and concentrated on the task at hoof hoping it would help her forget. It didn't take long before she made a nice stack of pancakes for them. “I should really shower myself, I smell of alcohol...and Vinyl.”

Turning off the stove she trotted to the second bathroom and took a quick shower. Surprisingly she was out and dried off before Vinyl was even downstairs. “Vinyl Scratch the pancakes are getting cold.” She called out in slight annoyance.

Octavia’s voice was loud and clear inside the upstairs bathroom where the DJ had fallen back to sleep standing in the shower. The word pancakes rang in her ears waking her up immediately. She quickly got out of the shower and dried off with a simple spell that made the water on her body evaporate into steam. She looked at the mirror placing her trademark sunglasses over her eyes. “Okay no more hiding it, so what if she called last night a mistake. Today is the day your going to tell Octy how you really feel.” She said pumping herself up smiling at the mirror before looked down with a sigh. “Oh, who are you fooling? You'll chicken out just like every other time.” She said to herself knowing that if she put herself out there and was rejected, they might not be able to be roommates anymore, or worse, friends. She soon made her way down stairs and couldn’t help but watch Octavia setting the table.

“Remember Vinyl not one word to anypony or you will have to cook for yourself.” Octavia said trying to stay composed and proper.

“What about telling them with hoof gestures?” The DJ asked a foalish grin plastered on her face.

“No Vinyl, and you just lost a pancake for that.” replied Octavia, taking one off of her plate

“Okay okay Octy, you win...I will just have to draw it out.” The DJ said under her breath teasingly only to receive a hoof to the back of the head from Octavia. “Oww, hey that hurt.”

“Serves you right for trying to tell ponies about my sexual exploits.” Octavia said with a hint of poshness in her voice.

“It's my sexual exploit too Octy.” huffed the DJ before watching her plate of pancakes scoot a bit farther from her. “Okay I’ll be good, just please let me have some pancakes.” She said staring at the delicious golden mountain in front of her.

“Mark my words Vinyl, should anypony find out about last night I will find a new place to store my bow.” Octavia stated and glared to the DJ though judging by the weird smile that spread across the DJ’s face it wasn’t effective.

“Ohhh, Kinky.” Said the DJ winking at Octavia.

Octavia groaned and facehoofed at the comment. “I didn’t mean it like that Vinyl.” She said with anger and frustration in her voice. “And don’t wink at me like that.”

“Wait… What? How in Equestria could you possibly know that I winked at you? I am wearing my shades.” The DJ remarked pointing a hoof to the purple shades that hide her eyes.

“Vinyl I have lived with you long enough to know when you are doing something behind those glasses. Last night for example, I know you were giving me the shifty eyes when I asked you about the dishwasher.” Octavia stated as she sat down at the table and plated herself some pancakes. After pouring some syrup on the hot golden pancakes she took a bit of one chewing it slowly.

“For the last time Octy, there's nothing wrong with the dishwubber.” The DJ said taking her own seat across from Octavia and some more pancakes onto her plate.

The DJ’s words hit the grey mare like a kick to the stomach. She gasped and shallowed the pancake she was chewing causing her to choke a bit. After a few pounds of her own hoof against her chest she took a deep breath, coughing a few times after and glared at her roommate. “What did you say?” she asked her voice a bit horse from choking and coughing.

“Dishwasher… I um… I am not sure what you heard me say.” The DJ’s response was fast and clearly trying to cover up the issue at hoof. The doorbell rang, and the white mare shot up. “Oh, we have a visitor, I’ll get it you just stay here, forget about what I said and enjoy your pancakes.” She said and rushed off to answer the door.

“We are not done talking about this Vinyl Scratch!” Octavia yelled out as the DJ left her sight and she sighed facehoofing. “That mare will be the end of me.”

Vinyl sighed in relief as she stopped at the door. Opening it with a smile just happy that again a distraction came at the right moment to avoid the topic. She smiled even wider seeing who was at the door. “Lyra, Bon Bon what perfect timing, it is good to see you girls. What brings you over this early in the morning?” She asked and let them in.

As Lyra and Bon Bon walked into the house Bon Bon answered the question. “Nothing much really, we just never seen Octavia drink that much before and were worried about her. We wondered if you needed help comforting her this morning.”

“Nah, she’s all good.” The DJ said bumping the door with her flank to shut it. “She actually made pancakes if you want to join us. She made quite a lot so there is plenty to share.” She said and smiled.

“That would be nice if it isn’t imposing on your two lovebirds.” Lyra teased causing a blush to appear the DJ’s white cheeks.

“We are not lovebirds.” replied the DJ, looking back to make sure that Octavia didn't hear the comment.

“Well from what we saw last night…” Bon Bon giggled as she watched the white mare’s face turn red. “Oh come on Lyra and I both remember what you said about Octavia. Why not just tell her how you feel?” She whispered as to not let Octavia hear the secret.

“T-that I can’t do. It could ruin our friendship forever if she rejects me.” She whispered back and looked to the kitchen hearing Octavia voice.

“Who is it Vinyl? If it’s a salespony tell them we don’t want or need anything.” Octavia called from the kitchen.

With that both Lyra and Bon Bon started to laugh. It was just all too familiar to them. “Yeah you aren’t lovebirds at all. You are a full on married couple.” Lyra commented quietly. “Me and Bon Bon act the exact same way at home.” She tried to hide her laughing behind a hoof.

“No it’s Lyra and Bon Bon, they are here to make sure you are okay. I invited them to have pancakes with us.” The DJ said rubbing the back of her neck. She did her best to stop blushing before she walked back into the kitchen with Lyra and Bon Bon following close behind. They smiled and took a seat at the table before nodding to Octavia in thanks.

The two new guests plated themselves some pancakes and there was an awkward silence in the kitchen for a little while. “So about last night…” Bon Bon started and was cut off by Octavia.

“Nothing happened after we left the bar if that is what you are thinking.” She quickly stated trying to cover up last night, though it was clear that she was trying to hide something.

“I was just going to ask you girls if you had talked about the pretending to be engaged plan or not yet.” Bon Bon finished and tapped a hoof to her chin. She didn't know what happened after the two left but something seemed off to her...Octavia was too quick to denounce last night.

While Bon Bon was watching Octavia, Lyra had been keeping a close eye on Vinyl. Something seemed to be different since last night and she just couldn’t put her hoof on it. That was until Lyra spotted something, something big, and game changing for Vinyl and Octavia’s relationship. “Oh, oh sweet Celestia you didn't...you did, you did it with Octavia last night didn’t you Vinyl?” Lyra asked with amusement in her voice.

Hearing this almost made Vinyl choke on her pancakes if it weren't for the cellist patting her back. “W-what would make you think that?” Octavia asked nervously her eyes shifting back and forth nervously.

Lyra pointed to the DJ’s horn and chuckled a bit. Bon Bon and Octavia both looked up to see that the glow around the DJ’s horn was not blue like it had been before, but instead was a grey color that matched Octavia’s fur. This caused the grey mare to groan and lay her face down on the table in embarrassment. “The horn never lies. It normally changes color…” She started to explain before a white hoof covered her mouth as the DJ motioned her head to the living room. Lyra could feel the death stare she was being given even if she couldn’t see it. She nodded and slowly left with the white mare.

✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨

Bon Bon nibbled on a pancake before she spoke to Octavia. “You know that is a special thing for a unicorn.” She smiled nibbling on the pancake more. “I remember the morning after me and Lyra, well that isn’t important, but when I noticed her horn color changed.” Bon Bon was stopped by another one of Octavia’s trademark groans.

Sitting up to full attention Octavia looked at the mare before her. “Bon Bon that isn’t the problem. I know it can happen to unicorns and that it means that they slept with a pony that they are very close to. The problem is that she was making a big joke about it.” She pouted. “I haven’t been able to tell anypony about this before, but I will tell you. Though you have to Pinkie promise me not to tell anypony, especially Vinyl.” Octavia pleaded.

“Okay, I Pinkie promise.” She said and smiled but when met with a glare from Octavia Bon Bon sighed. “You're not really going to make me say it are you?... Fine, cross my heart and hope to fly, stick a cupcake in my eye.” She said doing the gestures with her hoof as she made the promise.

“She checks out.” Said Pinkie Pie as she randomly appeared in the kitchen window giving Octavia a hoof up in approval. This confused both Octavia and Bon Bon as Pinkie Pie came out of nowhere and was gone just as fast.

“Oh, she is good.” Bon Bon stated and chuckled behind a hoof at just how Pinkie seemed to know when a promise was made...it must be part or her Pinkie sense.

“I… I don’t…” Octavia was at a loss for words but just sighed and looked back to Bon Bon. She was about to speak again but she stopped and looked around the room for any sign of the white unicorn before whispering softly. “I am in love with Vinyl. I have been hiding it from her because she is this famous DJ and super into Techno music. There is no way in Tartarus that a pony like her would have the faintest interest in a classical pony like me.” She bowed her head blushing from the embarrassment of having said it out loud.

Bon Bon was at a loss for words for a moment. How could it be that her friends that have lived together for so long as roommates not have a clue the other was completely in love with them. The light yellow mare gave a soft reassuring smile to Octavia and put a hoof to her chin pulling her head up to make eye contact. “How long have you been in love with Vinyl?” She asked quietly as to keep to the Pinkie promise.

“It started after she met my parents the first time. I don’t know how she did it but she survived the encounter without leaving because of how overbearing they can be. I was impressed and, well... after that I started noticing the little things about her that were both irritating and cute at the same time. I don’t know, it was just everything about her seemed so different from what I was use to and she grew on me.” The grey mare whispered and smiled to herself daydreaming about her roommate.

Bon Bon just let Octavia have her thoughts as she continued to eat her pancakes. It was starting to feel almost unreal at how blind the two were of each other’s feelings. It was funny in a mundane way to Bon Bon who knew they would be good for each other.

✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨

Lyra was stopped by Vinyl as they entered the living room. Looking back to the DJ she could feel as if she had been close to getting a hoof to the top of her head. “Watch what you say to Octy. Remember I am still hiding my true feelings from her.” The DJ said in a harsh whisper.

“Vinyl you need to just mare up and tell Octavia how you feel about her already. I mean the worst thing is that she says no. She wouldn’t just stop being friends with you over something like this.” Lyra said and sighed. “You are worse than Bon Bon was when trying to hide her feelings from me.” She said and moved a hoof through her mane.

“That was you and this is me. I am DJ Pon-3, you know, big disk jockey that plays awesome mixes. Octy, she is more refined and classy. You think a pony like her would every give a DJ like me the time of day?” The white mare took off her purple shades revealing her saddened red eyes.

“You won’t know unless you tell her. Trust me Vinyl, Octavia is a good friend and she cares about you. I can tell by how you act together.” Lyra said putting a hoof around Vinyl. “Plus pancakes the morning after. That is a mare you don’t want to let go.” She teased.

“That is easier said than done. I had to act like last night was nothing, like how she would think DJ Pon3 would act. She has no clue that I would like nothing more than to be her special somepony.” The DJ sighed softly as she hung her head putting her shades back on.

“Well I told you what I think about the subject, it's up to you to make the final step.” Lyra said poking Vinyl's horn. “But that magic will help in convincing her family that you two are engaged. I mean you can’t argue with magic color.” Lyra smiled as she walked back to the kitchen.

The DJ followed the green mare into the kitchen snapping Octavia back to reality but not before Lyra noticed the daydreaming look she was wearing. Lyra dismissed it and dug into her pancakes with Vinyl and her new grey colored magic. “Are you sure we can’t go with my plan?” The DJ asked looking at everypony at the table.

“NO!” Shouted everypony at the table.

“I might have been pretty drunk last night, but I can remember the worst idea you ever had. We will not be doing that.” Said the cellist turning her head away from the DJ with her hooves crossed over her chest.

“She’s right Vinyl that plan was dangerous, and I would almost say criminal.” Lyra stated as she finished her plate.

“Now we need to work out who proposed to who, how the proposal went and how long you have been dating before the proposal. After all, this won't work if you two can’t keep your stories straight.” Bon Bon said looking at the two mares and smiling thinking about it.

“Yes, it will need to be very convincing and romantic. Something that will make your parents believe that it’s true no matter what.” Lyra said.

“We have done almost everything together since becoming roommates. I think that vacation we took to Las Pegasus would be a good place to say we started dating. You remember right Vinyl? You got into a fight with that mare at the poker table for hitting on me.” Octavia said and laughed a little at the memory.

“Hey, she was all over you and that wasn’t something that I could stand for.” The DJ said and nodded. As funny as it sounded, that was actually when Vinyl realized that she was in love with Octavia. “But I agree that would be a great story of how we started dating. There is no mare I wouldn’t fight for you.” She stated and puffed out her chest to be triumphant.

“Right, well than we will say that Vinyl asked Octavia to be her special somepony after that fight.” Lyra said looked to Bon Bon nodded feeling the two mares were blind.

“How about we have Octavia be the one that proposed to Vinyl, for obvious reasons.” Bon Bon said eyeing Vinyl after getting a look of hurt.

“What, you don’t think I could plan something romantic for my special somepony?” The DJ asked putting her hoof over her heart making a pouting face.

“Vinyl, everypony here has heard the kind of plans you come up with last night. I don’t think there is a single plan that you could come up with that doesn’t involve wubs or somepony getting hurt in the process.” Octavia said looked to the DJ who pouted even more.

“But the wubs, everypony loves the wubs.” The DJ responded quietly.

“So if I were to propose to Vinyl I think…” The grey mare tapped a hoof to her chin thinking long about what kind of proposal she would think Vinyl would enjoy. “I would assume nothing to fancy. I guess I surprised her at one of her shows with flowers and a ring topped with a beautiful Ruby engraved with a treble clef and double note that were intertwined.” She said looked at the group who wore shocked faces. “What?” She asked.

“Not a diamond? I mean come on why a Ruby?” Lyra asked as that wasn’t the normal thing to have on an engagement ring.

“Well this one always hides her best features behind those purple glasses of hers. Those red eyes are beautiful, and she just hides them away so a Ruby to match her eyes and well the cutie marks being etched onto the top of the Ruby was a personal touch.” Octavia said defending herself.

Everypony looked to the DJ as if to hear her say that wasn’t something she would go for but the look on her face read differently. “Are you okay Vinyl?” asked Octavia.

“Yeah, you got a tear running down your face.” Commented Lyra.

Snapping back to reality, Vinyl quickly wiped the tear off her face with a hoof “I’m fine, just had something in my eye is all” lied the white unicorn. The truth was that she couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful way of proposing if she tried.

“You know Vinyl, if you don’t like it we can always change it.” Said Octavia trying to figure out what the DJ was thinking about.

“NO…I mean no, It’s perfect Octy…I just…I need to go to the bathroom. Whatever’s in my eye just doesn’t want to leave.” Replied Vinyl getting up from the table and walking out of the room.

A bit confused at what just happened, Octavia looked to the others hoping for some sort of explanation, but only got shrugs from the other end.

“Soooo… I guess you two will be going with that story then.” Said Bon Bon trying to break the awkward silence caused by Vinyl’s sudden absence.

“What are you going to do about the ring?” asked Lyra

Octavia thought about it for a second and replied “I could say that she got it dirty from one of her shows and had to get it cleaned… I’m sure they’d believe that.”

“Yeah, that’ll be perfect” replied Bon Bon clapping her hoofs together for a bit and stopped causing the silence to return.

“She sure is taking a while.” commented Lyra.

Octavia sighed and sat up to say “I’ll go check on her.” And with that, she walked upstairs to find the DJ in question.

Bon Bon and Lyra looked at each other for a bit before giggling. “It’s so obvious, how has Octavia not noticed how Vinyl feels about her?” Asked Lyra.

“I know, the way she teared up after hearing Octavia’s proposal was just adorable.” Replied Bon Bon.

“Do you think Octavia feels the same way about Vinyl?” asked the mint green unicorn. Bon Bon opened her mouth for a second ready to answer her but quickly cut herself off. She smiled and raised her hoof to make a zipping her mouth shut gesture. This confused the other mare. “What’s wrong Bon Bon, why’d you stop talking?”

The yellow mare pointed a hoof to the window and simply answered “I made a Pinkie Promise, but I’m sure you’ll piece it together. Besides, I think it’ll be way more fun to watch things unfold between the two from a distance.” said Bon Bon winking at Lyra who immediately pieced the whole story together.

With a small giggle from the unicorn she stood up “Well, we should head home. I’m sure they have much to talk about” With that said they both walked out the house wishing the best for their two hopeless lovers.

✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨

The DJ walked into the bathroom and shut the door. The white unicorn took off her glasses and stared into the mirror with mixed emotions. “Way to go Vinyl….Way to keep your feelings in check” thought the DJ wiping the tears from her face. They weren’t exactly tears of sadness or joy, but something in the middle that just wouldn’t go away.

“Why am I even crying, Octy’s proposal was beautiful…I love it…I love…her…that’s why…” The DJ grabbed a tissue from the counter with her magic and noticed the new color of her horn for the first time. This made her cry even more “Why… Why can’t I bring myself to tell her…tell her the truth, how I really feel?” Vinyl blew her nose and looked back at herself, horn still glowing gray. “I know why…It’s because I’m a coward…that’s why I hide behind my shades…that’s why I hide behind DJ Pon3…”

A small knock at the door startled the white unicorn. “Vinyl? Are you okay? I’m coming in.” Said Octavia opening the door.

“W-Wait Octy” replied Vinyl scrambling to grab her glasses to hide her face but knocked them over. Not thinking about her magic, she once again attempted to pick them up with her hoof but kicked them in front of the gray mare instead. Octavia looked at Vinyl who had obviously been crying the whole time.

“Oh my, what’s wrong Vinyl?” asked Octavia, worried about her best friend.

“N-nothing” answered the DJ, sitting down and trying to hide her face behind her hooves.

Octavia picked up the purple shades and placed them on the counter. She walked next to vinyl, sat down, and hugged her. Holding the embrace, she asked “Do you want to talk about it?”

Vinyl, still sniffling, lowered her hooves “I…I…I’m sorry Octy.” Said the unicorn digging her face into the mare’s chest while returning the hug.

“What in Equestria do you have to be sorry about?” asked the cellist combing the DJ’s blue main in comfort.

“I’m sorry about how I acted this morning...It…I…I didn’t want to ruin our friendship so I tried playing it off, like DJ Pon3 would…but then you, and then I… I’m sorry Octy.”

Octavia was taken aback for a second, as long as she’s known Vinyl, she’d never seen her like this. “Is this what she hides behind her shades?” thought the cellist before smiling and leaning in "Don’t worry Vinyl, it’d take a lot more than that to split us up. And besides, it was my fault, I was the pony who got you all wrapped up in my problems, and I’m sorry for that.” She pulled the white mare back to look into her eyes and said “Just know this, whatever happens, we'll always be best friends."

Vinyl cheered up a bit after hearing that. "You promise?"

Octavia smiled "Pinkie Promise."

After Vinyl finished cheering up, the two mares walked back to the kitchen and saw that Lyra and Bon Bon had left. Not surprising considering how long they had been. The two sat back down and pick up where they left off. They continued to talk about the details of their fake relationship. They were surprised as to how many things they did together seemed to fit into either a dating type of situation or a romantic getaway with just a few changed details. After their talk Octavia noticed it was lunch time and decided to make them Lily and Daffodil sandwiches with chocolate oak shakes. As they sat to eat she looked at a calendar on their wall and sighed.

“Only a few more days before Hearts and Hooves day. We should leave to Canterlot soon to start trying to convince my parents about us.” Octavia said with no drive to do so.

“Why not just take the last train tonight? That way we can get there in the morning and spend the whole day avoiding them while doing some shopping.” The DJ said and smiled. “I have my heart set on a new record just begging to be remixed.”

Octavia smiled and thought to herself "Well, at least she's back to her normal self again."
“You are right Vinyl, let’s start to pack after lunch and take the last train to Canterlot. It should be less crowded and give us a chance to have you practice some quiet dignity and grace.” Octavia said taking a bit of her sandwich.

“Don’t worry Octy, I got this.” The DJ boasted with a foalish smile.
