The Final Straw

I watched as the afternoon sky slowly faded into night from an open window. A few crickets started chirping their oh-so-annoying sounds, and the bright fireflies began circling my almost dead daffodils. It would've been a glamorous night if I weren't trying to heal some bruises on my arms and try to function my blank brain. Craig, believe it or not, was occupied in my bathroom as he had poorly convinced me to unlock the front door and let him in. I gazed up toward the sky and made out a few constellations, but my mind kept confirming them as Derpy. I sighed and slammed my window shut.

"You're not still mad, are you?" I heard Craig question me. "Because that bad mood of yours isn't going to help with Plan C." I looked at my friend.

"Plan C?" I screamed. "Don't you mean Plan Fail? Because of you, I have gained nothing but injuries to my body, and still no Derpy! I might as well slit my wrists!"

"You won't need slit wrists for this plan," Craig explained. "It's very simple. I promise to God! All I need is some shampoo and a flame thrower." I blinked in disbelief. This fool needed shampoo and a flame thrower? I'd like to burn him with a flame thrower and blind him with shampoo!

"Craig, you've overstayed your welcome. Leave now!" I demanded, practically shoving him toward the front door. He dug his Converses into my shaggy carpet.

"But don't you need some more information with the plan?" he asked. "I know it'll work!"

"No it won't!" I declared. "It'll just cause me more pain! Now out!" I yanked open the door and jumped back. Who invited—

"Derpy, hey!" Craig cried, smiling. "I was wondering when you'd be over!" Craig tugged Derpy inside. I was still shocked by this.

"How'd you—why did you even...? What's...?" I sputtered.

"Are you going to be finishing those questions?" Derpy asked, raising an eyebrow. "I know some good endings for them." I looked at Craig in confusion.

"What's she doing here?" I finally managed to ask.

"Duh! I'm here to talk," Derpy answered for Craig. "Craig asked me to come over, so I did." I was still looking at Craig.

"Derpy," he began, "I believe Fredrick has something to tell you." Craig hadn't addressed me by my full name in a long while. If he did that, he was all serious.

"I do?" I said. Craig smacked me behind my head.

"Of course!" he stated. "Remember the role play," he whispered, stepping out of the way. That was months ago! I thought. How am I supposed to remember it?

"Uh...I'm waiting," Derpy said suddenly. "This is getting boring already."

"Okay, here goes," I told her. "Listen Derpy. You fell in love with the wrong guy. I'm the one who loves you. Craig thinks you're alright, but he doesn't have that deep of an affection for you. I haven't told you 'cause I'm shy, but not anymore. I'd do anything for you! Honest!"

Derpy was really silent, which really killed me inside. What was she going to say? Would she reject or accept? (Hey, that rhymed!) Finally, she gave me a small smile.

"What would you say if I told you I knew all along?" she asked. My eyes widened. Craig's mouth dropped.

"HUH?!" I cried. Derpy's smile grew bigger.

"I didn't know at first, but I figured it out when I bit your fingers a couple months ago," she replied. "They tasted like muffins."

"So you knew all this time that Freddy loved you?" Craig screamed.

"Well why didn't you tell me earlier?" I cried. "You could've saved me all this stress! And pain! And heartache!" Derpy nodded.

"I know, I know," she said. "But I had to test you first."

"Test me how?" I asked.

"Any guy who'd do anything for me is sweet," Derpy began, "and I wanted to make sure you were that guy Freddy! I've never had a boyfriend before, and I didn't think you'd be the right one—until now. Aren't I a good actress, though?" I was still confused, but I still glad she loved me as well. And yeah, she was a pretty good actress. I'd never be able to pull that whole scam off.

"Sooo...you and I are over, right?" Craig tried to clarify.

"I've got a new Muffin Man, so what's the point in dating you?" Derpy said, hugging my arm.

"Man, I need a lady!" Craig muttered under his breath, speed walking out the front door to get some air. I had to laugh.

"Oh, and Freddy?" I heard Derpy say. I looked down at her.


"Just to be sure, you will make me muffins, right?" I laughed again.

"Of course," I answered, but not before giving her a quick kiss on the cheek.

I guess Craig did help me win Derpy's heart once and for all. While he did screw things up, he still encouraged me along the way and helped me escape the Shy Border that had prevented me from even saying a word to Derpy. I really owed him one. Thanks Craig (and muffins)! Because I finally—after a month—had my Derpy! And she was all mine!

1425311 Thanks! I agree that it could've been longer, but sometimes a story's ending has to wrap up, ya know? I'm super-duper glad you liked it!! :pinkiehappy:

I liked it. It was sweet, but Derry came off to me at least as kinda greedy for muffins:derpyderp1: but I guess that is expected.

1425409 One can never have too many muffins!!! :derpytongue2: And I'm glad you enjoyed! :D

I loved the ending as well. Especially that fact that Derpy knew it all along.
