Chapter 9: Ice, Crashes, and the CMC

~/\~In Rainbow Dash’s head~/\~

I’m standing on a mountainside with every mountain around me covered in ice and snow. The air is freezing and I’m shivering furiously. My teeth are chattering and my legs start to feel numb. The feeling begins crawling up my body. By now it’s at my waist. I try moving, but I feel frozen in place. I look down at my hands, the snowflake pattern returns on them and my fingertips began turning a darker blue. I pull down some strands of my hair to see that my hair had gone white. I look down at my body to see that ice had started crawling up my legs. By now, the numbing feeling has reached my head. I look down again to see that the ice has already reached my chest. I had nowhere to go. The ice had moved to my arms and face until I’m fully frozen. I take my final breath before my life ends.

~/\~

It was about eleven o'clock in the morning when Rainbow shot up, screaming. She looked down at her body to see that it was normal. She looked around the room, and what she saw frightened her. A thin layer of ice covered the windows, walls, and floor. Large icicles had grown from the cracks in the ceiling. They only grew larger when the girl's fear grew into terror. Rainbow gasped and her pillow close to her as tears rolled down her cheeks. She heard footsteps reaching her room and opening the door with some force. She saw the looks on her parent’s faces. Terror filled them and they looked at their daughter who was clutching her pillow while sitting in a fetal position. Windy approached her daughter, who immediately jumped back, scared that her mom would get hurt because of her. Her mom saw the look of fear in her daughter’s eyes and immediately wrapped her into a hug. Rainbow blinked in surprise, before melting into it and sobbed into her mom’s shoulder. Bow saw the look in his daughter’s eyes and pulled both his wife and daughter into a stronger embrace. The rainbow-haired girl slowly began calming down as her dad rubbed her back in a soothing way. The family of three broke the hug and Rainbow laid her head on her dad’s shoulder. Her mom came closer to her and wiped the tears that were rolling down her rosie cheeks. She leaned in and kissed her daughter on her forehead.

“How are you feeling, Sweetie?” Rainbow looked around the room. Her parents followed her gaze and sighed. “You know what, don’t answer that question.”

“How do I control this? I had it contained for so long. Why is this happening?” The rainbow-haired girl began panicking again which caused the ice around the room to begin to become thicker. Tears started falling again which caused the air to become colder. Windy stood up and closed the door so the cold air couldn’t escape the room to the rest of the house. Dash took deep breaths and slowly calmed down her racing heartbeat as well as the ice from spreading furthermore. She looked down at her gloved hands.

'Get control of this fucking situation! Do it for yourself, for mom and dad, for your friends, for Soarin! You can do this, Dash! You can-' She stopped talking to herself when she heard her phone ring. Her mom grabbed it and passed it over to her.

"Hello?" She spoke on the phone after she had accepted the call and put it on speaker.

"Rainbow Dash?" Rainbow froze. She knew that voice anywhere!

"Scootaloo?" Her parents also stared at each other after their daughter had said the name. The family of three looked at each other in confusion.

"Hey, Dash. I was wondering if we could speak to one another. Sweetie Belle and Apple Bloom are also on the line with me." The family of three blinked at each other once again, confused at what was going on. Weren't the three girls also part of the bunch of students hurting Dash?

"Umm, sure? I guess? But hey, weren't the three of you there when all the students were insulting me?" Scootaloo must have been drinking something because she spat out the liquid in her mouth.

"Why would they do that? What day was that anyway? We might have been on a field trip or something." Rainbow thought for a moment.

"It was about a week or two ago." The three girls were whispering in the background.

"I think we were on a field trip that day, RD." Apple Bloom had taken the advantage to speak. Dash put a hand to her chin to think, then snapped her fingers. She was right. The middle schoolers at Canterlot High were on a field trip the day that she was being insulted.

"Oh. I guess I kind of forgot that the middle schoolers went on a field trip that day. My bad, girls." The three girls giggled on the other end. Little did they know, the ice in the room had magically disappeared due to the comfort and love the rainbow-haired girl was receiving.

"It's fine, but would it be okay if we came over to your place to have some fun?" Rainbow blinked for a moment before looking around the room. Seeing the magical ice gone thanks to the love she was getting, she smiled.

"Sure thing. But I'm gonna have to pick you girls up to take you to my new place. I'm living back in Cloudsdale and it will take some time till I get back into Canterlot." The three girls squealed in excitement.

"Oh thank you, thank you, thank you, Rainbow Dash!!!" The three girls cheered at once. Windy giggled, Bow chuckled, and Rainbow snorted. Three silly girls. What fun.

"Alright. Just let me know where you are and I'll be there. It'll be a two-hour drive though."

"Sure thing." The call ended and the rainbow-haired girl sighed.

"Those three are going to be a handful. Well, I'm gonna get ready so I can pick them up. Can I use your car, Dad?" He chuckled.

"Take these keys," he said while holding out a set of car keys that he'd pulled out of his pocket, "and look in the garage." Rainbow blinked but nodded. She then shooed her parents out of her room so she could change, but not before taking the keys that her dad was handing her. (Into this outfit bellow)

(She also grabbed her sunglasses to go along with it.)

She walked down to the garage and gasped at what she saw. A beautiful sapphire blue convertible with her signature tricolored lightning bolt was parked inside next to her dad's wagon. She smiled and made a note to herself that she'd have to thank her dad later. She (not literally) jumped into the car and noticed something immediately. It wasn't a combustion engine car, it was electric. Her smile grew.

"Heh. Gee, thanks, dad. Thanks a lot. And it's not even my birthday." She saw the garage door opener was a simple remote form and opened the door while starting the car. She easily pulled out of the garage and rode right out onto the empty street. Right before she drove off, she closed the garage door. She had a feeling that if she didn't, she wouldn't be hearing the end of it from her parents.

~/\~

She was halfway from Cloudsdale to Canterlot when she got an incoming call from Fleetfoot.

"Hey, Fleet. What's up?"

"Hey, Crash. Just wanted to ask you something."

"Sure, go ahead and ask."

"Well, the entire group and I were wondering if you were up for going out to the mall with us. What do you say?" Dash paused.

"What time?"

"We're planning on meeting each other up at the mall at around 2:30." Rainbow chuckled.

"Hate to break it to you and the others, but I might not make it."

"What do you mean?"

"I'm on the road right now to pick up some friends from Canterlot who don't hate me and who didn't insult me that day. They were on a field trip so they had no idea what had happened. I'm halfway over to Canterlot right now, but it takes a total of four hours for a round trip. I'm probably not going to make it home till either 3 or 4 PM."

"You could bring them along. Also, what's with the loud noise in the background?" Dash cracked a grin.

"My dad got me a new convertible. That's the reason for the loud noise in the background. I have the roof open and listening to you on my earphones."

"Ahh. That makes sense. Soooo... Maybe see you around three or four?" Dash shook her head.

"Maybe, Fleet. Maybe." She could hear Fleetfoot sigh from the other end of the phone.

"Alright. Talk to you later, Dash."

"Talk to you later, Fleet." The phone went quiet, meaning the call had ended. Dash smiled. It was either Fleet or Surprise who were inviting her to crazy events. Those two were two beings that couldn't be held back. It reminded her of Pinkie Pie. She shook her head, trying to get rid of the image of the pink-skinned and pink-haired girl who'd hurt her. Luckily, one of her favorite songs on her phone popped up and canceled out every thought in her head so she was focused on her surroundings.

~/\~

It felt uncomfortable being back in the city where she'd been hurt in. Dash pulled over and pushed a button in the car so the roof would be pulled up. She pulled out her phone and clicked on her honorary sister's number. She waited as the familiar beeps of the phone went off, waiting for the middle schooler to pick up. Lucky for her, she didn't have to wait long when she heard Scootaloo's voice on the other side of the phone.

"Hello?"

"Hey, Scoots. I just arrived in Canterlot. where exactly are the three of you girls?"

"We're at Sugercube Corner." Rainbow's throat ran dry.

"Do you think that the three of you could head down to the park a few blocks down? I can meet you there. I just don't want to be seen by the girls." She could sense the purple-haired girl nod her head.

"I'll let the girls know and we'll be down there in ten seconds flat." Rainbow snorted at the use of her catchphrase. She heard talking on the other side of the phone. "Alright. We're leaving for the park now. See you soon."

"See you soon squirt." The call ended. Rainbow started the car and drove to one of the many parks in Canterlot, the one she told Scootaloo to meet her at. The ride was quick and she stayed inside the car as she waited for the girls to hopefully contact her again. The tension in the car felt too thick in the car with no music playing. She held her breath. Her trademark lightning bolt wasn't a large one that was plastered on both sides of the car, it was medium-sized and sat in the center of the driver's seat door. She clicked the radio on and let the music play. Circus by Britney Spears was the first song to play. The teen girl sighed.

"There's only two types of people in the world
The one's that entertain, and the one's that observe
Well, baby, I'm a put-on-a-show kind of girl
Don't like the back seat
Gotta be first

I'm like the ring leader, I call the shots
I'm like a firecracker, I make it hot

When I put on a show
I feel the adrenalin moving in through my veins
Spotlight on me and I'm ready to break
I'm like a performer, the dance floor is my stage
Better be ready, hope that you feel the same

All eyes on me in the center of the ring just like a circus
When I crack that whip, everybody gonna trip just like a circus
Don't stand there watching me, follow me
Show me what you can do
Everybody let go
We can make a dance floor just like a circus

There's only two types of guys out there
Ones that can hang with me, and ones that are scared
So baby I hope that you came prepared
I run a tight ship, so beware

I'm like a ring leader, I call the shots
I'm like a firecracker, I make it hot

When I put on a show
I feel the adrenalin moving in through my veins
Spotlight on me and I'm ready to break
I'm like a performer, the dance floor is my stage
Better be ready, hope that you feel the same

All eyes on me in the center of the ring just like a circus
When I crack that whip, everybody gonna trip just like a circus
Don't stand there watching me, follow me
Show me what you can do
Everybody let go
We can make a dance floor just like a circus

Let's go

Let me see what you can do

I'm running this
Like, like like a circus

Yeah, like a what
Like, like like a circus

All eyes on me in the center of the ring just like a circus
When I crack that whip, everybody gonna trip just like a circus
Don't stand there watching me, follow me
Show me what you can do
Everybody let go
We can make a dance floor just like a circus
All eyes on me in the center of the ring just like a circus
When I crack that whip, everybody gonna trip just like a circus
Don't stand there watching me, follow me
Show me what you can do
Everybody let go
We can make a dance floor just like a circus"

By the time the song had ended, there was a knock on the window. Rainbow blinked and looked over to see Scootaloo, Sweetie Belle, and Apple Bloom. She smiled and unlocked the car so the three could climb in. Scootaloo in the passenger's seat and Sweetie Belle and Apple Bloom in the back seats.

"RAINBOW DASH!!" Scootaloo cried as she hugged the rainbow-haired girl sitting next to her.

"Heh. Hey, kid. Hey, girls. How have you been?" Apple Bloom crossed her arms.

"School's been borin'. The three of us asked lots of people where ya went, but at the mention of yer name, they growled and walked away, not answering the question." Rainbow shook her head.

"Snobby students." She muttered under her breath and started the car.

"Nice car you got, Rainbow." Sweetie Belle complimented. Rainbow smiled.

"Heh, thanks. My dad got it for me. It's actually a convertible, so if you want the roof down, just let me know."The three squealed, but before one of them could ask her to pull down the roof, Rainbow's phone rang. She blinked in shock and answered the call.

"Hello?"

"Sup, Crash." Dash sighed, knowing who was calling.

"Yeesh, Shitfire, you scared the hell out of me. What's up?"

"Flatfoot told us what happened. When are you planning on coming back?" Dash sighed.

"Like I told Fleet, it takes two hours to get from Cloudsdale to Canterlot and same the other way around. That's a total of four hours of driving for me. Sorry. I also just got back onto the freeway. I'm headed back to Cloudsdale now. No worries." She heard a sigh from the other end.

"Alright. But once you get back, we're spending lots of time together. Especially since you weren't at school today." Dash shook her head.

"If you heard from Ms. Skies, she said that I was a bit under the weather. At least that's what my mom told me she told her."

"Alright. But once you get back can we please hang out?” Rainbow punched the bridge on her nose.

” Let me get back to Cloudsdale first. Then I will decide. Okay?” Spitfire sighed on the other side of the phone.

“Works for me. Bye, Dash.” The phone beeped signaling that the call had ended.

“Well, that was something.” She looked back at the three other girls in the car. “Sorry about that. These friends of mine are a bit coo coo.” Scootaloo, Sweetie Belle, and Apple Bloom giggled. Sweetie Belle spoke up.

“Hey, Dash,” the rainbow-haired girl looked at the curly-haired girl through the rearview mirror and nodded her head, “is there a chance that you could play “Hair” by Little Mix?” Rainbow blinked before smiling.

“I don’t see why not.” She pulled out her phone, but before she could do anything with it, a large shadow cast down upon them and the other cars on the bridge. Rainbow looked out the window to see a giant meteorite came shooting down out of nowhere. Rainbow’s eyes widened with terror and she screamed. She turned to the girls. “Get out of the car!!! NOW” The four girls got out of the car and ran to the side of the bridge. The meteorite was getting closer. She grabbed Scootaloo and Apple Bloom’s hands. Apple Bloom grabbed Sweetie Belle’s hand. ”JUMP!!!” The four girls ran to the side of the bridge and jumped off into the water. Rainbow looked up just in time to see the giant space rock destroy the bridge and crash into the water. Lucky for the four girls, they were a good distance from where it hit. The rainbow-haired girl could only stare in disbelief at what had just happened. She sighed.

~/\~

Windy Whistles and Bow Hothoof were watching the news on tv when they heard about the incident. A news reporter was speaking.

”There was a surprising crash on the east side of Cloudsdale that connects to the west side of Canterlot. There were quite a few people either injured, dead, or found missing. The bridge was destroyed by a meteorite that appeared out of nowhere. Apparently, people first started getting out of their cars as soon as someone had screamed for the other passengers in their car to get out. Luckily, Windy Spectrum, an injured woman, saw the person who had screamed.” The screen changed to a new woman, most likely considered Windy Spectrum, who spoke to the camera.

“I didn’t know about the meteorite coming down on the bridge until I heard a scream coming from farther back on the bridge. I got out of the car to see four girls getting out of a car and looking up at the sky. I turned my head and saw the shadow coming down. When I looked back at the girls, I took some mental notes about them. My best guess at who had was most likely the oldest one. She had blue skin and rainbow hair. As for the other girls, one had red hair with a bow, another had pink hair with stripes, and the last one had purple hair. They were all younger than the girl with rainbow hair. I took a final glance at them to see that they had jumped off the side of the bridge. By then my husband and I had run off to the side of the bridge.” The two adults stared in shock. There was a sudden knock on the door. Bow got up from the couch and walked over to the front door. He opened it to see his daughter’s friends. Soarin spoke up.

“Is okay if we, umm, come inside?” The rainbow-haired man blinked before stepping aside to let them in. Once all thirteen teens entered, they spotted Windy passing back and forth. She heard them and stopped to look at them.

“What brings all of you here?” She asked. Misty Fly rubbed her arm.

“I’m assuming you saw the news?” The two adults nodded. Five minutes of silence passed.

“But she jumped into the water. She’ll be okay, right?” Surprise quietly spoke. They all looked at one another before understanding what she meant. The two adults had led the thirteen teens into the living room where they sat down on either the couch or floor. They all crossed their fingers, hoping Dash was okay.

About fifteen minutes later, there was a knock on the door. The thirteen teens and two adults all looked at one another in confusion. Windy got up from her spot on the couch and walked over to the door. She opened it and stared at what she saw.

“RAINBOW DASH?!?!”

Author's Note:

Just a little heads up, I'm taking the whole ice and snow powers from the movie Frozen and Frozen 2. My sister's always talking about it and making me listen to the songs. I'm now listening to the songs to get inspiration on what to write next. Throughout this entire chapter, I was listening to the soundtrack to the second movie. Plz don't judge me. I'm just doing my thing with my writing.
