Rainbow began to walk down the long dirt road in search of her friend. She sighed trying to keep the cupcakes steady, "She's probably somewhere down near the Everfree forest, I know shes been living there for so long, but I'm always so worried for her being so close to there," Rainbow thought to herself keeping an eye out for a Pink mane, along with keeping the cupcakes she had on her open wings leaving her grounded for a bit, Rainbow didn't like the idea of not being able to fly, but she knew her friend would appreciate the gift.
Fluttershy walked alongside the trees of Everfree forest keeping a bit of distance she had been living there when she first came to Ponyville, but most pony's tried to keep away from the area. As she walked along she kept thinking about what she told Applejack, "Should I have told her... she seemed to be fine with it. Oh I just don't know what to do! I don't know if she likes mares!" "Gahhh..." Fluttershy groaned, "Fluttershy?" Rainbow Dash said, looking over her shoulder "Ahhhh!" Fluttershy screamed and ran a few feet before turning around to see what had startled her, "Fluttershy are you ok?!" Rainbow said worriedly, "I'm so sorry for scaring you I should have been more careful." Rainbow apologized. "Oh its fine Dash" Fluttershy said, then turned a bright pink suddenly realizing the pet name she had given Rainbow Dash, but Rainbow hadn't seemed to notice, since Pinkie Pie called her Dashie all the time. "Oh Horse Apples," one of the yellow and green cupcakes Rainbow had, dropped to the ground. "I meant to give you that..." Rainbow said holding out her own Cupcake to Fluttershy "here take mine," Rainbow said with a smile. Fluttershy went to grab the cupcake but stopped her hoof from grabbing the cupcake leaned in and took a big bite right from her hoof "There now you can eat the rest I'm not really that hungry anyway," Fluttershy stated Whipping off the Green and Yellow icing. The yellow icing seemed to have blended into her yellow coat. "Alright then your loss!" she said, with a smile and throwing the Cupcake into her mouth giving a small gulp.
The Two talked for what seemed like hours until the sun started to go down. They talked of almost everything they could think of, Rainbows training sessions, Fluttershy's many different animals, and anything they could think of. Fluttershy enjoyed talking to Rainbow the entire time and it looked as though Rainbow had a good time too. The two sat down beside each other as they walked in the meadow, Fluttershy blushing as she sat beside her love. Rainbow seen this but made no effort to say something to her, she knew Fluttershy for years and she blushed every time she fell over or was uncomfortable. "So much for going to the party," laughed Rainbow Dash, looking at the sun slowly being lowered by their very own, Princess Celestia, "Oh yeah, I didn't even get the chance to say hello to everyone there..." Fluttershy said lowering her head, "hey cheer up, Fluttershy, your friends know that your not that into partying, I'm sure they'll understand," Rainbow stated looking down at the yellow pony, After a minute Rainbow Dash interrupted the silence "Fluttershy..." she said, her maroon eyes glistening in the almost faded sunlight, "Yeah, Dash...?" Fluttershy said with a bit of a whisper, "I need to tell you something.... You have to promise not to tell the others... Please?" "Anything for you, Rainbow," Fluttershy said blushing. Here goes nothing, Dash thought "I like mares..." At those words, Fluttershy didn't know what to say she was ever so happy and at the same time dreaded what would come next. What if she liked a certain mare in Ponyville? Most of Ponyville was Fillies. "There's a pony in Ponyville I actually kind of have a crush on," Rainbow said looking at Fluttershy. This is exactly what Fluttershy didn't want to hear. She was on the verge of tears, and began to shake ever so slightly.
Looking away from Rainbow, she got up and felt a single tear role down her cheek and fall to the hard ground, Rainbow liked a different pony... "Fluttershy?" Rainbow said, "Are you alright?" Fluttershy turned and faced her friend tears running from her face and she started to sob, "Fluttershy wait!" Rainbow said, folding her wings out and taking off towards the Flying Pegasus, who was speeding away from her and into the Everfree Forest. "Fluttershy, the mare I like is you!" Rainbow Dash yelled but the cyan mare didn't get there in time. She stopped and starred at the Pitch black forest, Fluttershy's cry's getting quieter and quieter until nothing.
