Long Days - Kalreas

Fluttershy and Bic Mac start meeting each other more often, but for what reason?

  • ...

All Good Things Must Come to an End

Hey, just throwing this out there: I hate doing this to Fluttershy.
The title pretty much says everything.


Locked under a tree behind the barn of the farm because of strong rain is what neither of them expected.

Fluttershy was laying near the base of the tree with Big Mac, both trying to keep warm. "Mac?" She quietly asked.

"We could probably make a run for the barn when the rain lets off a little. I think it's about to." She stated as proudly as she could, despite her situation. Her knowledge of nature was beyond his.

"Alright, we can try it." He nodded and got up to get ready for the run. A mere moment after he got up, the rain started dissipating slowly. Fluttershy decided that it was now or never.

"We need to move." She said in a serious tone. They both made a run for the barn entrance, and a strong wave of rain nearly doused them at the very end. They walked into the barn nearly soaked whether they wanted to be or not. Big Macintosh went to get the big cover that the hay cart used normally. He dusted it off as well as he could and laid it down on the ground.

"We should.. get.." His voice failed him as he looked upon the heavenly sight of Fluttershy with her hair down and wet. She was smiling at him, and he nearly fell to his knees by the sight alone. He decided to hide his clumsiness by laying down on the cloth. He reached beside him and pulled a side of the cover around his body. There was enough room for one small pony, but only if they squeezed together.

She walked over, wet mane and all, smiling the entire time. She laid down next to him, extremely close this time. Her two left hooves wrapped around his body, while the other two lay scrunched as closely to her body as she could get. Macintosh brought the cover over her body, and they laid there, drying and getting warmth.

Despite the already strange setting, Macintosh wrapped his hooves around the body of the mare. He was really nervous about doing so, so he did it slowly. He felt her body tense and freeze when feeling the powerful legs slide across her body.

"Ya.. don't mind me.. doin' this, right?" He asked, unable to hide the nervous shaking of his voice. She smiled and hugged him tighter, starting to close her eyes.

"It's perfectly fine."

Fluttershy closed her eyes and relaxed completely, feeling warmth and security in the hooves of the stallion. Little did she know that she easily fell to sleep. She felt warmer and more relaxed than ever before, despite the situation she was in. Trapped in a barn with Big Macintosh because of heavy rain.


The next thing Fluttershy heard was Applejack's voice.

"May Ah ask why y'all are layin' like that?"

"A-Applejack!" Fluttershy looked worryingly at the mare. "It's not what it looks like! We ran from the tree to the barn and we got soaked from the rain, so we had to warm up and get dry."

Applejack laughed a bit at her explanation, raising her hoof and silently telling her to slow down. "It's alright, Ah understand." She said calmly.

The honest acceptance of the true situation made Fluttershy relax finally. She smiled and closed her eyes, leaning her head back down. She was blocked halfway down by an unintentional kiss to Macintosh.

"Mmp-" She moaned in surprise, and backed out of the sudden lock of lips. She blushed and quickly hid her face from all view by burying it into Big Mac's chest.

'What am I doing? Why am I so worried about this?' Fluttershy thought to herself, maddeningly trying to find some way, any way, to get the situation less awkward.

"AJ?" Big Macintosh asked, starting to stand up.

"Yeah?" She turned to face him, wondering what he would say. He finished standing up, and looked into her eyes for a moment before looking away. His eyes darted from one direction to another for several moments before he spoke again.

"N-nothin'. Ah suppose we should get ta work on the farm?" He started walking towards the entrance of the barn and kept looking at the ground as he walked. Fluttershy only watched, trying not to involve herself in everything. When Macintosh left the barn, Applejack turned to face her.

"Is everything alright?" She asked, obviously worried about their situation.

"I.. I don't know..." She answered, saddened and confused, looking down at her hooves.

"Ah do." Big Macintosh said suddenly, appearing through the entrance of the barn again. Fluttershy's eyes went wide in confusion and surprise.

'What have I done? I did something wrong? When?!' She thought to herself, confused and saddened.

"Fluttershy," Big Mac started. "Ah need time ta think about our situation. We've been going faster than Ah've honestly been able ta handle, and Ah need time ta think things over."

Those words, coming from that booming, deep voice. It was no longer soft and caring, it didn't help heal the wounds of her heart. It dug those wounds open and created new ones.

"Ah hope that my choice don't hurt ya, Fluttershy..."

She turned away and rose to her hooves. Her hair was still down from the rainfall last night, as well as being pressed against the ground all night. She slowly walked away from the both of them, not saying a single word. She just started to walk out the back exit of the barn when she heard Big Macintosh call after her.


She bit her lip as she turned her head to face him. She couldn't hold in the tears anymore, as they flowed freely down her cheeks. She gave him one last look before flying off towards her house as fast as she could. She flew through the sky, vision blurred as she was crying freely and openly now.

'What.. did I do.. wrong?' She asked herself repeatedly as she arrived at her house. She burst open the door, slamming it shut behind her. She couldn't move because of the intensity of her tears.

'Why does this hurt so badly?!' She screamed into her own head as she laid down and cried harder. "Why?" That was the only question that mattered right now. Why?

Why did Macintosh say that?
Why did it hurt her heart so badly?

"WHY?!" Fluttershy screamed into her fairly empty house, alone.
