Attacks and Burns.

AppleJack yawned, slowly opening her eyes. She lifted her hat, putting it on her head. She shoke her head, trying to wake herself up.

"Come on everypony." She said, struggling to stand up on her hooves.

The ponies blinked several times, sitting up. They all did their share of yawns, looking at one another. The only ones that haden't woken up were RainbowDash and Fluttershy. . . Because they wern't even there.

"Fluttershy!" Twilight said, leaping to her hooves.

"Dashie!" PinkiePie called out.

"Oh, what could have happened to them Ya'll?" AppleJack asked, looking to her friends.

"You don't think....." Rarity began, making a throat slicing movement with her hoof.

"No! Of course not!" Twilight said quickly.


"I think we should get back to the site." RainbowDash said, slowly standing up.

Fluttershy nodded, lightly smiling. "Thank you Dashie.. I never thought I would be able to tell somepony my whole past.. Thanks for listening." Fluttershy said, tilting her head in the cute way she always did.

"You're a good friend."

"Well.. Come on Fluttershy." RainbowDash said, lightly pushing her with her wing.

The two mares walked back, sharing small stories lightly laughing. Nothing had happened between them, they just talked. Fluttershy had woken up RainbowDash in the middle of the night, and asked if they could take a walk. They walked for awhile, and Fluttershy told RainbowDash her past and everything she feared. RainbowDash listened to everything she had to say, even though it bored her. She still liked the time she spent with her. Every moment counted.

"RainbowDash!" Twilight said, quickly trotting up to the mares. "Where in Equestria were you!?" She exclaimed, hugging her friends.

"We just took a walk." Fluttershy said calmly. "I'm sorry we scared you." She said, lowering her ears.

"At least you're alright!" Rarity said, smiling brightly.

The bushes around them shoke, making shuffling sounds. Small growls came from behind the trees. Yellow eyes shined through the blackness.

"Uh.. Is everpony else seeing what I'm seeing?" Twilight asked, backing into her friends.

"I don't wanna die!" Fluttershy screamed, cleching onto RainbowDash.

"Everypony be quiet...." AppleJack instructed. "Stay still." She said making sure everypony wasen't moving a muscle.

Just then, five TimberWolves jumped out. Their coats were pure black, their eyes yellow. They started to circle them, snarling loudly.

"Fluttershy, do something!" Twilight urged, staring at the terrified yellow mare.

"Me- ME!?" She gasped, backing away even more.

"Talk to em'!" AppleJack said, her eyes wide in fear. She knew how to scare Timber Wolves away, but there was nothing loud to clang of bang.

Fluttershy took a deep breath, looking at the ground.

"Oh.. Uhm, you - you stop right now you wolve-" Fluttershy's words were cut short by a angry snap from the wolves.

"Plan B!" RainbowDash said, running up to one of the wolves, bucking it right in the jaw. The wolf whined, shaking his head, but didn't run off. The kick made him even more angry. They started to close in even more.

"The fire." AppleJack whispered, looking over to RainbowDash.

"What!?" She asked in confusion, keeping her eyes on the wolves.

"The fire!" AppleJack repeated, louder.

AppleJack ran toward them, stomping her hooves on the ground. "Ya'll get outta' here ya' hear!?" She said, continuing to stomp her hooves on the ground.

RainbowDash took this opportunity, running over to the still alive fire. She bucked some fire toward the wolves, burning her hooves. The fire slightly missed them, but shocked them. Some of the small ones ran away, their tales between their legs.

"Again R.D!" She said, looking her way.

"You got it!" She said, doing it once again. Before she could, one grabbed onto Fluttershy, ripping some leaves off her wing. Fluttershy screamed in pain, trying to pull away from the wolf.

"Fluttershy!" Twilight exclaimed, trying to run to her aid. Before she got there, she was blocked by a TimberWolf, foam coming from his mouth.

"Help.. ME!" Fluttershy said, feeling the wolf wrap his muzzle around her hind hoof, biting down.

"Get.. away from her!" RainbowDash said, kicking fire at the wolves once again. It burned like hell, but she didn't care.

The wolves whined and yelped in confusion. AppleJack stomped on one of their paws, making them flea in terror.

"Fluttershy. Ya'll alright?" AppleJack asked, walking up to her. Only a few feathers were missing from her wing, but she had a bite on her hoof. Luckily it wasn't that serious, or life threatening.

Twilight, PinkiePie and Rarity rushed up to aid there friend. "I'll get some leaves STAT!" PinkiePie said, quickly bouncing away.

"I'll get some water." Twilight offered, grabbing a leaf in her maw.

"RainbowDash, you find some straw or something like that! I'll stay here with Fluttershy." Rarity said, pointing behind her.

RainbowDash nodded, spreading her wings to fly. It was then she noticed she had burned off some feathers, leaving a gash. The skin wasen't burned, but it stung.

She took flight, trying to find some straw or thin grass. She was sure to watch out for anymore Timber Wolves.

RainbowDash's hooves burned with every slight movement. Every time she walked on them, it burned her, making her clench in pain.

Spotting some straw, she lightly landed, and started to pick them.


"Did you see RainbowDashe's wing?" Fluttershy asked laying down.

"No.. Why, what's wrong with it?" Rarity asked, slowly placing water on the wound.

"I think she burned it." Fluttershy responded, her mane covering her face.

"I think she would have told us if she was hurt." Twilight said, sitting next to fluttershy. "Besides. She couln't fly if her wing was burned."

"What if she's straining it? What if she's hurt and she only wants herself to know because she wants me taken care of first, and doesn't want to get in the way?" Fluttershy said, lowering her ears.

"Come to think of that..." AppleJack started, raising a hoof. "You and RainbowDash have been spending alot of time together. Sumthin' you wanna tell us SugarCube?" AppleJack asked, staring straight at the mare.

"What?" Fluttershy asked in confusion. This made her blush. Nothing was going on between them... Yet.

"Come on Hun. You walking off by you're selves... RainbowDash always having her wing wrapped around ya." She said, eying Fluttershy.

"Yes.. I was actually wondering the same thing. I didn't want to say anything.. But now that the subjects been brought up." Rarity said, fumbling with the leaves.

"Were just good friends." She managed to say. Her face was beat red.

"We.. Alrightly then." AppleJack said, passing her some berries.

"I'm back." RainbowDash said, slowly flying just about the ground, not wanting to walk anywhere. "Here." She said passing the straw to Rarity.

"Aha! Thank you darling." Rarity said, taking the straw in her hooves. She tied the leaves together over the wound, patching it up. "That'll have to do until we get home." She said standing up.

"Were never going to go home!" PinkiePie says, breaking into tears. She covered her face with her hooves, tears drenching her face.

"It's going to be alright SugarCube. Just wait, you'll see. We'll get home, I promise." AppleJack said, not too sure herself.

"Right?" She asked the others.

Twilight lowered her ears, and forced a smile on her face. "Yes. Of course we are." She said, walking up to PinkiePie to comfort her.

"Are you alright?" Fluttershy asked in a soft whisper to RainbowDash.

"I.. Kinda burnt my wings. And hooves." She said, sitting down. "It's not bad though. I think I'm going to go sit in the water for awhile when things cool down."

"Shouldn't you tell somepony?" Fluttershy urged, looking up to the mare.

"They have too much on their minds right now. Plus - I er.. Don't like ponies touching my hooves." She said with a light smile.

"Well.. I'm pretty tiered out. I reckon we can't walk today because of Fluttershy's hoof. So I say we rest, then leave tomorrow." She suggested, laying down.

The rest nodded, laying down as well.

"Want me to come with you?" Fluttershy asked, standing up.

"Sure." RainbowDash whispered, starting to trot away.
