Scootaloo shifted position, standing on tip-hoof to get a glimpse of the returning mane six, who had been involved in the Great War with the Princess of Balance, Ayari. With her stood táo, apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, Spike and Pinkie. For some odd reason, Pinkie had been ordered to stay in Ponyville. Spike started shouting, "Twilight! Over here Twilight!" Quickly followed bởi Sweetie screeching, "Rarity! Sis! S-i-i-i-i-s!!!" And táo, apple Bloom. "Apple Jack! Hey!" There was Fluttershy, but where was Scoot's hero? Where was the Dash? The older mares quickly joined the fillies, and the dragon, but cầu vồng still hadn't shown up. "Hey, uh, Twilight?" Scootaloo asked. "Where's cầu vồng Dash?" The half-hearted smile on Twilight Sparkle's face slid off, replaced with an apologetic look. "Scootaloo, I'm sorry, she... She wanted bạn to have this." A letter was placed in Scootaloo's hooves. She nodded, throat constricting. "O-okay." She đã đưa ý kiến bravely, tears in her voice. "I- I'm gonna go read it." Twilight nodded, but the trái cam, màu da cam filly was gone.
Scootaloo sat in a cây at the park. She held the letter in her hooves, wanting to, but unwilling to read it. Tears rose in her eyes, but she wiped them away, and opened the letter.
Do bạn remember all the fun things we did together? Remember, the one time I called bạn a chicken, and bạn got so mad? I do. Remember the time bạn slept at my place, and had a nightmare? bạn curled up with me, and bạn smiled in your sleep. I tình yêu ya, squirt. If I don't make it, Egg head will give bạn this letter, if she doesn't, I'll haunt her forever. I promised I would. Scootaloo, I want bạn to forget me. Don't go into life-long mourning, I mean. I want bạn to di chuyển on, have a life, maybe even have a kid hoặc two. Heck, I would've, if the right stallion had come along. I could make this letter super long, but I won't. I just want bạn to know this:
I tình yêu you.
I tình yêu ya, Scoots.
I tình yêu ya squirt.
You'll always be my little Chicken. No matter what.
Scootaloo stared at the chuỗi hạt, chuỗi hạt cườm that had fallen from the sealed tube of paper. It was a beautiful cầu vồng colored chain, and from it hung Rainbow's cutie mark, red, blue and yellow lightning descending from a cloud. Scootaloo smiled, looking up at the sky. "Thanks Dash. I tình yêu bạn too."
Twelve years later.
"Momma, is this really one of the Elements' graves?"
Scootaloo smiled at her daughter, Sunny Wings. "Yes, Baby, it is. It's the grave of cầu vồng Dash, Element of Loyalty. She was my mentor, and in some ways, big sister." The small filly turned her vibrant purple eyes to her mother. "She taught bạn how to fly?" Scootaloo laughed at her daughter's expression. "Yes, Sunshine, she did. Here's your father. Let's go." Scootaloo nuzzled her husband, before the three of them flew away, up to their trang chủ in Cloudsdale.
cầu vồng Dash watched Scootaloo flying away, guiding her daughter onto the thermals so she would rise higher. She smiled, and whispered, "I knew bạn could, squirt. I always knew." She turned to the Princess of Balance, and the alicorn smiled. Her voice contained power, and gentleness. "Come, Rainbow, bạn must return to the underworld." cầu vồng laughed good naturedly. "Of course, Princess." The alicorn glared at her. "What did I tell bạn about calling me that?" cầu vồng laughed again, "Okay, okay, Ayari. bạn happy now?" The alicorn huffed. "No. But I will accept it.... For now..."
I was bored, decided to kill Dashie in the war against another OC of mine, so... yeah...
