NOTE: If you haven't seen the episode "Secret of my Excess", I reccomend doing so before reading this story.

Many events have happened this day, for the day before was Spike's first birthday in Ponyville. He received gifts more then he can realize, and he started to get a little greedy. Soon, his greed started to transform him into a huge monster, literally. He brought many destruction to Ponyville, but the love brought by his all-time crush, Rarity, transformed him back into his original form. Everything was now fine, everypony forgave Spike, and now Twilight had to talk to her little dragon.

It was now nighttime in Ponyville. In the bedroom of Twilight Sparkle's library, Spike was looking out the window, he looked a little depressed. Twilight peeked in her room and saw Spike.

"Hey, Spike?" said Twilight. "Are you feeling okay?"

Spike looked and saw Twilight. "Uh, yeah," said Spike. "I'm alright, it's just...it's just..."

"You feel bad of what you did?" said Twilight, referring to his rampage.

Spike nodded, still looking depressed. "I think I'm now starting to see why you don't bring me along on some of your adventures." He said. "Like when I couldn't go to the Best Young Flyers Competition, or when I didn't go to Canterlot to celebrate your birthday." He looked up to Twilight. "Am I really that bad to everypony?"

Twilight felt sorry for Spike. "Spike, come here." She said reaching her hoof out. Spike sat next to Twilight as she put her hoof on her shoulder.

"I understand how you feel, but things got better," said Twilight, patting his back. "Everypony forgave you, and you got another kiss from Rarity." said Twilight nudging him.

Spike blushed at that. "Yeah, I did." said Spike. He then realized something. "Twilight?" said Spike.

"Hmm?" said Twilight.

"Speaking of my birthday," said Spike. "Of all the gifts I got, I never got the present from you."

"Oh, Spike." said Twilight. "You already know what it is. Another book."

"That doesn't mean I don't want to see it." said Spike.

Twilight smiled warmly at Spike. She then used her magic to get the book and gave it to Spike. Spike pulled the ribbon off and looked at the book.

"There's something familiar about this book." He said. Twilight smiled at him. "I know this book!" said Spike, smiling while looking at the book.

A young Twilight Sparkle was walking inside her home with her foalsitter, Cadence. Today was little Spike's birthday, and Twilight and Cadence had a special gift for him.

"Do you really think Spike is going to like it?" said Twilight nervously. "I'm not sure."

"I'm sure that he'll love anything you picked out for him." Cadence said smiling at her.

They both opened the door and saw little Spike playing with his toys. He looked and saw Twilight and Cadence.
"Twilight! Cadence!" He said, happily. He happily ran over to Twilight and Cadence as they all shared an embrace.

"Guess what we got for you!" said Cadence.

"Whatcha get me? Whatcha get me? Whatcha get me?" Spike said, jumping up and down enthusiastically.

Cadence looked at Twilight and nodded. Twilight then nervously pulled out the present. "Wow!" said Spike.

"Open it up!" said Cadence.

Spike opened up the present as Twilight sweated nervously.

Spike was wide-eyed when he saw the present. "You guys got me a book?" Spike said happily. Twilight sighed in relief. "You really got this for me?" said Spike.

"Happy Birthday!" said Twilight and Cadence.

Spike jumped up and shared another embrace with Twilight and Cadence. "Thanks guys!" Spike said, happily.

"You really found it, after all these years?" said Spike.

"Yep." said Twilight.

Spike looked at the book and then smiled at Twilight. "Out of all the presents I got this year," said Spike as he then hugged Twilight. "Yours is my favorite."

Twilight got a little teared up as she smiled at him. She then wrapped her hooves around Spike, sharing a hug with him.

"Can you read this book to me?" said Spike. "It's been so long."

Twilight smiled at Spike. "Of course." She said. Twilight tucked Spike in his little bed and began to read the story. "Once upon a time," said Twilight. "There was a beautiful princess. Everything was nice and peaceful. But then, a ferocious dragon came around and kidnapped the princess."

Cadence was on the floor, reading the book to Twilight and Spike, who were both snuggled up with her. "But while being captive, the princess soon saw, that the dragon wasn't all mean, he was actually really nice." "Like me!" said Spike. "Yes, like you." said Cadence, smiling as she gave Spike a nuzzle.

"As time went by," said Twilight. "The princess and the dragon became closer, and closer. And soon, the princess made a vow, that she would protect the dragon from any harm, as he did with her."

"And so, the princess and the dragon lived happily ever after." Cadence finished. She then saw Twilight and Spike were both asleep. She smiled as she pulled a blanket over them and gave them both a kiss on the forehead. Spike snuggled with both Twilight and Cadence and said silently in his sleep. "That was the best story ever..."

"The best story ever..." Spike said, drifting off to sleep. Twilight smiled at Spike and kissed him on the forehead. "Happy birthday, Spike." She said, quietly as she then got in her bed and fell asleep.
