They Go Together Like Bees and Honey

“THIS TIME!” Rainbow zoomed away, towards the hive.

Hearing hoofsteps, Fluttershy turned. “Cattail?”

“What’s the hullaballoo, chérie?

They watched Rainbow encircling the swarm.

Incroyable! Ain’t seen nobody try takin’ flash bee honey without masks.”

Blushing, Fluttershy gripped the first-aid kit. “Sorry. I should’ve recommended the masks harder, but I didn’t wanna insist.”

Another flash. Another yelp.

“She’ll get herself stung and coma-tized! Din’t you tell her it’s no good musclin’ a hive that resists magic?”

“I tried. Rainbow thought pegasus magic might work.”

“Did she?”

“Once. Now she thinks–”

“I WON’T LOSE TO A BUNCH OF ZAPPY BUGS!” yelled Rainbow, feinting swiftly. Angry buzzing rivalled her yelps.

Cattail goggled. “Ain’t you gonna help her?”

“Now!? Rainbow would never forgive me. I’ll wait till she’s finished. See, we understand each other–”

“Be honest about her chances! Tell her it’s hopeless!”

Another yelp: Fluttershy winced. “Oh, I don’t wanna wait that long.”
