Dusk Shine in pursuit of Happiness -Chapter 12
Chapter 12 - The Breakfast Club
It was a warm morning, the sun had risen recently but the town of Ponyville already had a lot of movement, much more than usual, as everyone knew that this would be the last day before that night to view the Summer Sun Celebration, and since the small town of Ponyville had been chosen as the main venue for the event, the vast majority of the village ponies were in some way connected with some task in preparation for the celebration and all of them wanted the celebration run by the very same Princess Celestia to be perfect in that humble town, for that same reason they began to run and work in their respective jobs. Despite that, one of the ponies passing through town was one of the few who had momentarily left the job they had been commissioned for the celebration and was going to take a little break before continuing to work, a timid yellow pegasus that had been hanging out with some of her friends that morning.

“¿Con quién estabas hablando?” Preguntó Applejack luego de haber escuchado a Pinkie Pie decir ‘¡Qué no!’ a todo volumen sin ninguna razón aparente.
“No lo sé, solo sentí que debía gritar eso.” Respondió Pinkie Pie, sin darle importancia a aquello. “Imaginé que estábamos en un cuento y que yo le respondía a la malvada bruja mala.” Terminó de decir Pinkie Pie, quien se pasaba su propia fantasía por la cabeza mientras sus dos compañeros la miraban como si ella fuera una loca.
Los tres ponies siguieron avanzando entre los arboles del oscuro bosque luego de haber dejado aquella ilusión del cementerio, teniendo a Pinkie Pie por guía, mas no pasó mucho tiempo hasta que finalmente los tres llegaron a un lugar des

En el bosque Everfree vivían una innumerable cantidad de bestias salvajes, animales y criaturas que difícilmente podían subsistir en otro lugar de Equestria, en donde reinaba la paz y seguridad brindada por la princesa Celestia, pues ese bosque era indómito, tenebroso, con su propia magia antigua fluyendo desde las profundas raíces de los arboles hasta sus altas copas, el lugar perfecto para que aquellas bestias que no querían o no podían seguir las reglas de buen vivir que reglaban a los ponies, pudieran habitar. Por eso mismo es que muchos ponies, principalmente los que vivían en Ponyville, sabían que no debían entrar sin razón a aquel lugar, una regla autoimpuesta que precisament

"I can't believe a filly found me dirty.” Dusk said worriedly as he continued to walk the streets of Ponyville.
"So…? What's the problem?" Spike said apathetic. "When you shut yourself up to study, you spent days without eating or bathing."
"Yeah, but..." Dusk said pausing and realizing that Spike was right, because in the past he hadn't minded something like that, however now it was different, because although he didn't want it that way, Dusk had known and had stayed with different mares, and it was a well-known standard of good living that a gentlecolt should always be neat and gallant before a mare. "It's just different now!" Dusk finally said, blushing.
Spike looked at him for a moment, then looked dow

Chapter 11 – She’s a rarity
[Continued from the first part of Chapter 11]
Dusk felt the sun's pleasant rays and the cool breeze hitting his freshly washed coat, thinking that he mustn't be bitter about what had happened and simply enjoy the day and solve the problems that he still had pending, the library and lodging, but that never happened, because as soon as they left the spa, an unexpected cry put them on alert.
"Dusk, Spike, please wait!" Cried the voice of a mare in the distance. It was Rarity, who was trotting in the direction of the Spa.
"Why did this vain mare come back?" Dusk thought bitterly again, feeling annoyed with himself for thinking she was cute despite her superficial attitude.
"I'm sorry I abandoned you so suddenly, but... I had something to do in my house." Rarity said with a smile once she reached them. "By the way, there I found a photo that might interest you." Rarity finished talking, looking at Dusk and showing him a pho

“¡BWAHAHA! ¿Qué te pareció mi actuación? Ahora podremos estar tranquilas aquí, después de todo nadie te buscará, ¡PORQUE TODOS PIENSAN QUE ESTÁS MUERTA! “¡BWAHAHA!” Se rio siniestramente Nightmare Moon, viendo con odio a su prisionera.
En medio de un destruido y olvidado salón del antiguo castillo, en lo profundo del bosque Everfree, se encontraba Nightmare Moon riendo triunfante por su regreso a la vida luego de haber permanecido prisionera por mil años. A su lado se encontraba otra pony de similares proporciones pero opuestos colores, la princesa Celestia, sin sus adornos reales ni su corona, sentada, mirando a su captora mientras unas nubes oscuras rodeaban su cuerno, su cuello y sus patas.
“No sabes cuánto extrañaba este lugar…” Dijo Nightmare Moo

Chapter 12 - The Breakfast Club

It was a warm morning, the sun had risen recently but the town of Ponyville already had a lot of movement, much more than usual, as everyone knew that this would be the last day before that night to view the Summer Sun Celebration, and since the small town of Ponyville had been chosen as the main venue for the event, the vast majority of the village ponies were in some way connected with some task in preparation for the celebration and all of them wanted the celebration run by the very same Princess Celestia to be perfect in that humble town, for that same reason they began to run and work in their respective jobs. Despite that, one of the ponies passing through town was one of the few who had momentarily left the job they had been commissioned for the celebration and was going to take a little break before continuing to work, a timid yellow pegasus that had been hanging out with some of her friends that morning. It was Fluttershy, who had risen early to feed the small animals of the forest, had gone to town to have breakfast with her friends, as they did once a week.

"It's still early, but everyone's so excited for the celebration tonight.” thought Fluttershy looking at the other ponies, who as most of the time passed by without noticing her timid presence.

Fluttershy kept walking until she glimpsed the meeting place, the Ponyville Cafe, a huge, ornate two-story house with a sign with a clover drawn on it, and the Café stood out because there were many tables shaped like mushrooms.

"I guess the order of arrival will be the same as always." Fluttershy thought, smiling shyly. "She'll be there for sure."

And her premonition didn't fail since at one of the few tables occupied was one of her friends, the most punctual of all, an orange-skinned and blond haired mare in a cowboy hat.

"Good morning Applejack!" Greeted Fluttershy smiling, letting go of her natural shyness a little since she was now talking to a dear friend. "Since you're always the first to arrive, I hope I didn't keep you waiting."

"Not at all." Applejack smiled. "You're punctual, 'Ah just came a little earlier, it's just 'ah always get up 'fore dawn ta' work, so 'tain't hard for me ta' git 'ere early, unlike our other friends."

"Hehe, I guess you're right." Fluttershy laughed timidly, thinking that she was right since they were always the first two to arrive when they all met, however, if everything was as it usually was, the next of her friends would be here soon.

Again, fulfilling what Fluttershy thought, jumps could be heard, the jumping of a mare that always surprisingly appeared when two or more of her friends came together, as if she had an alarm that sounded when someone was preparing for a party, meeting or other event.

The jumps sounded closer, causing Fluttershy and Applejack to turn their heads towards the sound to see their pink friend approach, the pink mare stopped in front of them and before saying anything threw lots of confetti.

"Weee-! Hi, Applejack! Hi, Fluttershy!" Said the pink mare joyfully. "Good morning!"

"Good Morning Pinkie Pie." Fluttershy greeted her extrovert friend, taking out the confetti that had fallen into her mane.

"Mornin' " waved Applejack, with Fluttershy doing the same. "Seems like today you're really happy, more than usual, and that's sayin' somethin'." Applejack said, noticing Pinkie Pie's big smile.

"That's right!" Pinkie Pie said cheerfully, jumping into a seat like her friends. "It's just that I was a little sick a few days ago, but luckily I managed to recover completely for the celebration today!"

"You were sick!? Why didn't you tell us? "Fluttershy asked worriedly.

"That's why.” Pinkie Pie replied, closing one eye and sticking her tongue out playfully aimed at Fluttershy. "I didn't want you to worry, it wasn't anything serious, besides... I had all the care I needed..." Pinkie Pie said, looking down and changing her smile for a more tender one.

That gesture didn't go unnoticed by Applejack, who was about to ask Pinkie Pie about that smile but was interrupted by a long whoosh off in the distance and was coming towards them, a whoosh she knew very well. Applejack turned her head around to see a rainbow ray coming down from the sky and was going at full speed to where they were.

"As always, she's the fastest but always runnin' late..." Applejack smiled as the rainbow light slowed to a full stop just in front of her, revealing the cyan pegasus with a rainbow mane. "Good mornin' Rainbow."

"Phew...! Good morning." Rainbow Dash said tiredly, then looking at the other two mares sitting at the table. "Oh come on... Don't tell me I was the last one here again."

"Of course not Dashie!" Said Pinkie Pie smiling. "Rarity's still not here."

And as if it was necessary for her name had to be announced to make an appearance, the white unicorn turned a corner and approached to the Café, to meet with her four friends.

"Sorry for the delay, darlings.” Rarity said politely, approaching the table. "I just did not know what eyeshadow to use for such a special day like today, I finally chose to use a bold darker tone, what do you think?" Finished saying Rarity, closing her eyes and putting her face so that her friends saw the shadow she had painted her eyelids.

They all came to see and looked confused, thinking the same thing, it all seemed to be the exact same sky-blue color that Rarity always used, at least that's what they all thought but obviously couldn't say, so Pinkie Pie, Applejack and Rainbow Dash turned to see Fluttershy, the voice of kindness, to speak for all.

"It's very pretty, you look great!" Smiled Fluttershy timidly.

"Fufu, thank you, darling." Rarity smiled, thankful that in all her group of friends that Fluttershy at least understood some makeup and fashion.

This was what they all believed, they all felt that they were real friends, ties forged by different situations and circumstances, but the five ponies also knew that they were all very different: Rarity liked fashion and glamor, with an elegant and proud character; Fluttershy liked music and animals, with a kind and timid character; Applejack liked the field and hard work, with a firm and protective character; Pinkie Pie liked the hustle and bustle, with a cheerful and extroverted character; And Rainbow Dash liked jokes and speed, with a strong, self-centered character. They all liked each other, but sometimes they found it very difficult to agree on certain things because of their extremely different tastes and personalities, so it was decided that a breakfast once a week was the perfect event, something that everyone liked and was the perfect opportunity to meet and talk without needing to be in the middle of something or talk about something they didn't really like.

"Well? Has everyone already ordered? "Rarity asked, looking at the others.

"Not yet, we're waiting for you.” Applejack replied, calling the waiter to take their orders.

Once Rarity placed her order, the waiter came quickly with their breakfast, since as a good small town worker he already knew his frequent customers and knew in advance what they would each order, orders as different as the personalities of the guests, the waiter arrived with coffee for the sophisticated Rarity, oatmeal for the animalistic Fluttershy, a sandwich for the ever-swift Rainbow Dash, sweets for the sweet Pinkie Pie and fruit for the country Applejack.

"So what's new?" Rainbow Dash asked, eating her sandwich swiftly. "How's it going with the feast for the celebration?" she asked looking at Applejack.

"Just fine!" Applejack replied cheerfully. "We were a bit busy, we even lost some apples cuz' of a couple ah hungry thieves." After saying that, Applejack smiled tenderly as she remembered. "But now a lotta ponies from the Apple family came for the celebration, so we got all the help we need, we'll be done on time!"

"And what about chu'? You're supposed ta' be captain of the weather patrol and the sky's still cloudy.” added Applejack, looking at Rainbow Dash and then at the slightly cloudy sky.

"Nah! It's nothing to worry about, I can clear it myself in a couple of seconds." Rainbow Dash said nonchalantly. "I would have cleaned it myself yesterday, but I was busy with some extra work given to me, maybe if I hadn't ended up in jail I would have focused more on clearing the skies..." Rainbow Dash said, closing her eyes and opening one slightly to see her friends reaction of to her comment.

"YOU WERE IN JAIL!?" They all asked in surprised unison, exactly the effect Rainbow Dash wanted.

"Hehe, that's right, I'm a bad girl, right?" Rainbow Dash smiled unjustifiably proud. "Don't worry, it wasn't that bad, it was just a misunderstanding, but... it was worth it..." Rainbow Dash said, saying the last thing very low and somewhat blushed, something that surprised her friends even more than knowing that she had been in jail.

"What about you, Fluttershy?" Rainbow Dash said quickly, realizing that her friends had seen her blush, and wanting to change the subject. "You're in charge of the music for the celebration, aren't you?"

"Yes..." Fluttershy replied timidly. "Caring for all the animals takes up a lot of my time, so I still have to practice a little more with the songbirds, but I think it will work out very well."

"It really must be a very big job to take care of all those animals.” Rarity added, looking fondly at Fluttershy. "I don't think I could stand a day doing your job, my dear, you are admirable."

"Well... I like to do it, and... there are other ponies who also like to work with animals..." Fluttershy said shyly with a little smile, remembering who had helped take care of the animals a few days ago.

"I like animals! In fact, if you want you can bring some to the pre-celebration party." Pinkie Pie said cheerfully.

"No! That would be a disaster!" Rarity said quickly with a face of horror. "I know that you are in charge of the evening festivities before the Summer Sun Celebration, but that does not mean that you should make a mess, remember that it's an important evening and that we must all be presentable to the princess after the party when she raises the sun." Rarity finished, arranging her mane.

"And you, drama queen, how's it going with decorating for the celebration?" Rainbow Dash added mockingly as she saw her friend arranging her always well-tended mane.

"They're going fine, it will not be what I expected, but I'm confident that I'll be able to make the town pavilion look splendid for the Princess's arrival." Rarity said excitedly, then suddenly pressed her lips together and looked at her friends from side to side, waiting for someone to ask something.

That gesture was quickly understood by Applejack, an expert in detecting expressions and secrets, this was the expression that Rarity put when she had some new gossip and hoped that someone would ask her as not to be called a gossip.

"So... is there anything new?" Applejack asked with a smile of resignation, playing along.

"YES! Yes, there is something new!" Rarity almost shouted, with a big smile. "I think I'm in love!"

They were all silent for a few seconds, surprised by Rarity's sudden joy, and they were even more surprised to hear why; she was in love?

"Weren't you dating with Caramel?" Rainbow Dash asked in confusion.

"What? Of course not! We just had coffee, that does not mean we're dating, I thought I made that clear to you last time." Rarity said somewhat offended.

"Oh... It's just that when you talk about romantic things or who you date, you tend to ramble." Rainbow Dash giggled nervously. "So then... what's so special about this colt you've fallen in love with?"

"I don't know! And it's the best!!" Rarity replied with total emotion. "It's the first time that I really felt something like this, he's clumsy and childish, but every time I see him I feel so happy and my heart starts racing at speeds I didn't know were possible! He is also chivalrous and elegant, which is all very well and good, but I don’t just like him for that, but for what he is and how he makes me feel, Oh, Celestia! It fills me with joy just remembering him! Yesterday was so magical, to be with him all day and to have my heart slowly open to him until finally it fell surrendered with a great, warm hug... I only wish that all of you could experience what I did..."

At Rarity's words, they all stopped seeing her with incredulous looks and began to become surprised by the way their friend spoke and behaved. At first they all thought that Rarity would once again tell them about another of her failed love attempts, where she flirted with some colt, she would date him and eventually leave him with the excuse that he was not the stallion of her dreams; But this time they could all see how Rarity seemed genuinely excited talking about a colt, that was something none of them had seen in Rarity before, for that reason the surprise to realize that apparently, their friend had really been love struck for the first time.

"Oh! I am so glad to see you so happy Rarity!" Fluttershy said sincerely, smiling at her friend.

"Thank you, darling." Rarity smiled. "I hope you find a colt that makes you feel as happy as I do."

Fluttershy looked at Rarity's cheerful smile, blushed, looked at the floor and could not help but speak.

"Well..." Fluttershy said shyly, blushing. "I'm not sure... but there's a colt..."

They all stared at Fluttershy, more surprised than when Rarity told of her possible new love.

"Do tell, do tell!" Rarity said, totally excited as she liked to talk about romantic issues but normally the others did not like to talk about it much.

"Uhm... The other day I met a colt, he helped me with the little animals in the forest..." Fluttershy said, still blushing. "He thought I was in danger and he protected me, and he is very kind and tender..." Fluttershy said those words with a twinkle in her eyes, then she looked up and saw all her friends staring at her as they smiled.

"Ahh! Please don't look at me like that!" Fluttershy said completely red, covering her face with her hooves. She was glad to express her feelings in front of her friends, but she did not like being the center of attention.

"Aww... that's so cute.” Rarity said affectionately. "It seems that you too have been struck by love..."

"Me too! Me too!" Pinkie Pie suddenly said, raising her hoof and making all eyes focus on her. "I also met a colt a few days ago! He was the sweetest and most attentive pony I ever met, he was the one who helped me when I was sick, carried me when I fainted and took care of me. He's also very funny! He made me feel strange like I had butterflies in my tummy, I..." Pinkie Pie stopped talking in her usual joy and began to get a little more serious, to blush and smile more tenderly. "I... I've never felt this way before..."

Again they were all surprised, they always had seen Pinkie Pie smile, with hundreds of different smiles, but they had never seen Pinkie Pie smile that way, let alone when she was talking about a colt.

"Golly… so you're in love too?" Applejack asked with a smile, not understanding much of love but feeling happy for her friend to see her so happy.

"I think so!" Pinkie Pie answered with a big smile.

"What about you, darling?" Rarity said, looking impishly at Applejack. "Is there any colt that has managed to conquer that indomitable heart?"

"Hmph! O' course not, Ah' don't believe in love at first sight." Applejack looked away, then she remembered what she had experienced with a certain colt a few days ago and could not help blushing, something that did not go unnoticed by her friends.

"Fufu, you're hiding something!" Rarity chuckled, enjoying all this talk of loves and secrets.

Applejack looked at her friends and unconsciously put on her bad poker face, looking away and wrinkling her nose. So she stayed like that for a few seconds until Applejack looked back at her friends, who were still staring at her as they smiled, waiting for her to speak, finally Applejack let out a big sigh and spoke.

"*Huff*... Ah' don't know what Y'all want me to tell ya, Ah' don't fall in love so easy." Applejack began nervously. "But... a few days ago Ah' also met a colt... He... tried ta nab some apples, he was definitely a clumsy an' brazen pony, but he was also sincere and hardworkin', he wanted ta work ta pay for the apples he ate, 'though he did a terrible job. "At that last comment Applejack could not help but smile tenderly at the memory.

"He... also made me feel strange..." Applejack finally blushed, before seeing all her friends looking at her, putting her back on the defensive. "B-But I'm definitely not saying it's love!" Applejack stammered, still blushed.

"But you also can't be sure it's not love, right?" Rarity chuckled as she saw how nervous Applejack had become. "Aaah! It's wonderful to know that we all are feeling the joy of being in love at the same time!" Rarity said happily, looking at her friends and stopping in surprise at Rainbow Dash.

Rarity stared at the poker-faced Rainbow Dash for several seconds until she finally spoke.

"And how is the weather, Rainbow Dash?" Rarity said with a nervous smile, trying to change the subject.

"Okay, it's- Wait a second!" Rainbow Dash said annoyed. "Why did you ask everypony if they were in love but me!?"

"Huh!?" Rarity replied in surprise. "Well, darling, I thought those things didn't interest you."

"Of course I'm not interested!" Rainbow Dash replied, crossing her legs and looking away.

They all stared confused at Rainbow Dash, who was still looking off annoyed.

"Although..." Rainbow Dash suddenly added when her friend's were about to drop the subject, she hadn't changed her stance or where she looked, but suddenly she blushed. "If I wanted to fall in love, it would have to be a 'cool' colt, somepony who could impress others, a colt who's funny and... somepony who’d never abandon me..."

They all stared at Rainbow Dash with their mouths open, they had never seen her act like this, and they had to admit that seeing her trying to act cool when she was really nervous and blushed was very tender, Rainbow Dash looked tender! That was something none of them ever thought to see.

"Oh, Celestia! You're in love too!" Rarity said almost in a scream, totally thrilled to see that her less feminine friend was acting like a true mare for the first time. "Tell me, tell me, tell me! Who is it! What does he look like? How did you meet him!?"

"Huh?" Said Rainbow Dash surprised to see that they all looked at her, blushing even more. "I... I don't know what you're talking about, I... I just said... it's just... It's just that a few days ago I met a colt and he seemed like a great guy, we laughed a lot and had a good time, but that that's it!!"

Rainbow Dash finished speaking in a scream, ending the conversation, for all but Rarity, who had never enjoyed having breakfast with her friends this much.

"Hehehe, I can not believe we all fell in love in the same week! It must be fate!" Rarity said cheerfully, not far from there a purple colt was walking swiftly in their direction.

"We should have a big party! The ten of us! To get to know each other!" Said Pinkie Pie cheerfully as the purple colt turned the last corner and finally glimpsed the Café where he was to meet up for breakfast.

"That would be splendid! But I'm afraid I'm getting ahead of myself." Rarity said with a smile as the purple colt approached the Cafe and glimpsed the figures of five colorful mares. "I already invited my future love to have breakfast with us, I hope he arrives soon, I want you to know him, his name is-" Rarity couldn't finish speaking as she was interrupted by a well-known male voice.

"Wow... I didn't know that you knew each other... This is a huge coincidence!" Said the purple colt, a.k.a. Dusk Shine, standing in front of the table where the mares were sitting, totally surprised to see that the five mares with whom he had engaged in conversations with and with whom he wanted to befriend at the Summer Sun Celebration, were all in one place.

"HI DUSK!" The five mares said in unison, with a smile, slightly blushed and stretching their hooves in greeting, glad to see that just the pony had arrived that each had been talking about at breakfast.

As soon as they all greeted, they all froze with their smiles and their hooves stretched as a cold sweat ran down each of their necks. Then they all opened their eyes and looked at each other with deep concern, as soon as they did, everyone understood, everything they had said, all the feelings expressed... They had all unknowingly been talking about the same colt! They had all fallen in love with the same colt at the same time!!

Dusk Shine in pursuit of Happiness -C12-1 by BigSnusnu

Dusk stared at the mares, who for some reason had been quiet and staring at each other, he could feel some tension in the air, but he could not understand what was causing it.

After an awkward silence Dusk prepared to speak again, but then a sudden memory took possession of him and his mind went immediately to another more important matter. Since he had arrived at the library the night before, Dusk had organised the books Rarity had given him, yet one had caught his attention, it was a copy of the book he had left unread in Canterlot, the book that talked about lost magical items and which Princess Celestia had taken away from him when she sent him to Ponyville, so that night his impulse of a reading fanatic took possession of him and Dusk continued reading the book exactly where he had left off, in the so-called 'Elements of the Harmony'. Dusk spent the whole night reading, and the more he read the more interesting and more important all that information seemed to him, that is until Spike took the book and Dusk realized that it was already the next day and that he had spent all night reading. Spike ordered that they should go to breakfast with Rarity, something that Dusk didn't want to do at the time, because he didn't want to stop reading the book at such a crucial point, however, at Spike's insistence, Dusk decided that he should comply and listen to him, but it annoyed him that his little brother had interrupted his reading, so in retaliation he ordered Spike to stay and keep organizing the library, which is how they both got angry at each other and Dusk had to go to the Cafe leaving his unfinished reading, but still keeping in mind that he should return quickly to the library and finish the book, because he had just arrived at a very interesting part, a part that mentioned a being he had never heard of before: Nightmare Moon.

"Rarity, I... want to apologize.” Dusk said quickly. "I know I promised that I would have breakfast with you today but there is something extremely important that I must do in the library. I'll buy a takeaway breakfast and then I'll head back to the library quickly, I hope you'll forgive me. "

Dusk finished speaking but received no reply, Rarity and the other four mares were still sitting motionless, looking at each other.

"Uhh... okay... I'll go for breakfast now." Dusk said something confused as he did not receive a reply, remembering that he should hurry back to the library, so he left the mares and went straight into the Cafe dining room to order his takeaway breakfast.

As soon as Dusk left, the five mares stared at each other for a while until finally, the silence broke.

"Y-You... all... were all talking about MY Dusk?" Rarity said nervously and somewhat annoyed.

"Wait a second, what do you mean YOUR Dusk?" Rainbow Dash said also annoyed.

"Oh, but isn't it obvious, I saw him first!" Rarity replied annoyed, pointing at herself.

"That's not true, you said you met him yesterday, but I met him two days ago.” Pinkie Pie said thoughtfully, remembering Rarity's words.

"Well I met him three days ago.” said Rainbow Dash pointing at herself.

"Huh... well, Ah' guess Ah' know him from before that, Ah' met him four days ago..." Applejack said, scratching her head.

"I... I met him five days ago..." Fluttershy said timidly. They all saw the fragile Fluttershy and saw the weakest rival.

"Bah! No matter who saw him first, that doesn't change anything.” said Rarity, looking off to the other side annoyed.

"Yeah, whoever saw him first doesn't change a thing.” said Pinkie Pie, to which Rainbow Dash nodded without saying anything.

Poor Fluttershy looked disgusted for a second, took a breath and opened her mouth, ready to argue with her friends, but then closed it and lowered her head, grieved for not being able to face her friends in an argument.

"This doesn't make sense, you don't even like him like that, you said it yourself!" Rarity argued with Rainbow Dash.

"I know! But that doesn't mean he's yours!" Rainbow Dash replied blushing and annoyed.

"Enough girls.” Applejack said pounding the table to reassure her friends. "Don't Y'all think maybe the victims here is us? Wasn't Dusk trying ta' seduce us all? Isn't it all his fault?"

"Of course not!" Rarity demanded. "I know him better than you, he's innocent and a gentleman, he would never do anything like love mares just for fun."

"That's right.” Pinkie Pie added thoughtfully. "I think that even he hasn't realized our feelings..."

Applejack looked at her friends and then lowered her eyes biting her lip, they were right, Dusk didn't have the appearance or personality of being a ‘playpony’, and didn't have that aura of a seducer and a conqueror, she had to admit that if Dusk had caused all this, he had done it unintentionally, and as Pinkie Pie said, apparently he did not see them in a romantic sense, otherwise he would have reacted differently to seeing his 'five conquests' together.

"What we should do is make him choose!" Rarity said proudly, arranging her mane. "We all know who is the most suitable mare for Dusk."

"Me?" Pinkie Pie said smiling.

"Of course not! It's me, of course!" Rarity said annoyingly.

"What we gotta do is get away from him..." Applejack said with little determination as she felt that she didn't really want to do that, but she hated seeing her friends fight.

"You just say that because you know you're the one with the least chance with him!" Rarity said annoyingly.

"I guess you're right..." Rainbow Dash agreed with rarity, glancing sideways at Applejack.

Applejack was shocked at the remark, then saw Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie, who didn't want to look her in the eyes, did they all think the same of her!?

"Why do Y'all think that!?" Applejack yelled annoyingly.

"Well, it's simple darling.” Rarity said in a superb manner. "Dusk comes from Canterlot, he even meets the princess herself..."

"He knows the princess!" A surprised Applejack, Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie said in unison.

"Yeah, he told me she's his magic teacher or something.” Rainbow Dash replied, proud to know something about Dusk that the others did not know.

"That's right.” Rarity took the floor again, staring at Applejack seriously. "For that matter, he is almost royalty, and no offense, darling, but what could someone of royalty want with a country girl like you?"

That comment from Rarity obviously bothered Applejack, but what annoyed her more was the attitude of the others, who remained thoughtful without looking at her as if they all agreed with Rarity's comment.

"So that's what Y'all think!" Applejack yelled losing her temper. "Well... WE'VE KISSED EACH OTHER!" Applejack shouted, not thinking clearly about what she was saying in anger.

"WHAT!!!" Rarity, Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy shouted, totally shocked while Pinkie Pie just wore a poker face and said nothing.

After that outburst, Applejack's head cooled until she suddenly realized what she had just yelled.

"W-Well... It was just an accidental kiss..." Said Applejack totally blushed.

"This can't be, how dare you kiss MY Dusk!?" Rarity yelled furiously.

"I already said it was an accident." Applejack replied annoyed and distressed.

"And there you go again, he's not YOUR Dusk, get it through your head.” said Rainbow Dash annoyingly looking at Rarity.

"Somepony say my name?" Dusk suddenly said, already finished buying his breakfast and returning to where the mares were, having heard nothing of the terrible argument they just had, only catching up at the end when Rainbow Dash mentioned his name.

As soon as everyone saw that Dusk was there, they all blushed and looked away, except for Pinkie Pie, who still had her poker face on and stared at Dusk.

"Listen, I really regret not being able to stay.” Dusk said apologetically. "But I must get back to the library, I'll see you all tonight at the celebration."

Then Dusk turned and started walking again toward the library. As soon as he did, Applejack completely cooled her head and looked seriously at her friends.

"Listen..." Applejack said earnestly. "We can't be fightin' fer' a boy's attention, we're better than that, we've been friends fer' a long time, and 'though we're very different we've always stayed friends. Ah'm really sorry fer Dusk, but A'h think if we wanna save our friendship, we need ta stop seeing him."

Then Applejack put one of her hooves in the center of the table and looked affectionately at her friends.

"What do ya say? Let's save our friendship, we promise we won't see Dusk again." Applejack said with a sad smile.

Rarity looked reluctantly at Applejack's hoof, but her friend's words really struck at her heart, because she knew that her friend was right. She couldn't let a colt stand in the way of this friendship, even though her heart ached to let him go.

"It's... It's okay..." Rarity said reluctantly, also stretching one of her hooves to the center of the table, touching Applejack's hoof. "If it's the best for everyone, I promise I will not go near Dusk."

"I... I can do it, too." Rainbow Dash nervously said, also stretching her hoof. "I mean, it's not like I'm in love with him or anything..."

"Me too..." Fluttershy said timidly, looking affectionately at her friends and stretching out her hoof. "We're friends and we shouldn't fight."

After they all gathered their hooves they turned their eyes to where Pinkie Pie was sitting, where to their surprise, they only saw an empty seat.

"Where's Pink-?" Applejack wondered, who could've sworn that Pinkie Pie was sitting there just a second ago, unable to finish her sentence as she heard the voice of that pink pony in the distance.

"Wait up, Dusk!" Said Pinkie Pie near Dusk, who hadn't moved very far yet and was still within sight of the other mares.

"Hmm? Something wrong?" Dusk said, stopping to speak to Pinkie Pie.

"I just wanted to thank you properly for taking care of me when I was sick." Pinkie Pie said with a smile, standing in front of him. "I couldn't do it before because I was sick."

"Oh, there's no nee-" Dusk said closing his eyes without giving importance to the matter until his mouth was hushed by a surprise and intense kiss of Pinkie Pie.

Not far away, the four still-sitting mares watched as the pink mare kissed the surprised Dusk on the mouth, all with different reactions: Applejack opened her mouth totally surprised, Fluttershy blushed and covered her mouth, Rainbow Dash lifted an eyebrow, and stared at them in annoyance, and Rarity with a look of terror as if the world were going to end.

The kiss only lasted for a few seconds, so Dusk just stood frozen there receiving the kiss, with eyes wide open due to the surprise act of Pinkie Pie.

Finally, Pinkie Pie parted her lips from Dusk's and smiled at him.

"Thank you for taking care of me!" Said Pinkie Pie smiling before giving her characteristic bounces and returning to her friends.

Meanwhile, Dusk froze where he was, totally blushing after that kiss.

"Tastes sweet..." Dusk whispered as soon as he was alone, touching his lips and feeling a sweet taste on his lips and a warm feeling inside. It had been an act that completely clouded his mind, and now that he had recovered his reason he needed to find answers, was that Pinkie Pie's normal way of thanking the ponies? Or had she done it just for him? Dusk didn't know, but with a pony as peculiar as Pinkie Pie, anything could be. Dusk finally took a step toward the Café, to where Pinkie Pie had returned, to ask her what had just happened, however a more persistent thought suddenly came to mind, he hadn't finished reading that book he was reading. He needed to know what the Elements of Harmony were and the danger to which they referred, so immediately his doubts about the kiss had all but disappeared, he turned again like a robot and began to trot towards the library, totally focused on his new and more important mission, after all a kiss wasn't more important than the security of all Equestria.

For her part, Pinkie Pie came smiling back to the others.

"Is something wrong?" Pinkie Pie asked with a smile as she realized they were all staring at her.

"The... the promise we were going to make..." Applejack said timidly, with a tone of concern.

"What promise?" Pinkie Pie said, still smiling.

Applejack opened her mouth to answer but she said nothing, she was confused by Pinkie Pie's attitude, she could've sworn she had seen the pink pony sitting when she began talking about the promise, but with each passing second came more doubts... Had Pinkie Pie really not heard anything she'd said? Or maybe... could it be that Pinkie Pie had listened and escaped, ignoring the promise, to take advantage with Dusk...? Applejack just stared at Pinkie Pie, who just kept smiling. If it had been any of her other friends, Applejack would have known if they were lying or not, but with Pinkie Pie, it had always been difficult for her to know what she really thought and was going through her crazy head.

"What promise? What promise!?" Rarity finally screamed, leaving her state of horror. "I'll tell you what promise, the promise not to see Dusk again, the promise that you broke before it even started!" Then Rarity paused for a few seconds as her fury grew.

"YOU!" Rarity screamed even louder, pointing at Pinkie Pie, and then pointing to Applejack, keeping her gaze furious. "And you too! Both of you took advantage of my sweet and innocent Dusk and stole a kiss, I will not let any of you take advantage! I won't make any promises!"

Then Rarity stood up, turned her head indignantly, and left the place.

"Oh... so you wanted to make a promise like that..." Pinkie Pie said, watching Rarity walk away and then looked at the others. "But if Rarity doesn't promise, I think I won't either." Pinkie Pie said with a smile and bounced away.

"It's true, there's no point in making a promise." Rainbow Dash also said annoyed. "Besides I see Dusk as a friend, I don't see him as my future boyfriend or anything..." as Rainbow Dash finished talking she blushed. Then she spread her wings and flew away.

Only Applejack and Fluttershy were left, as they saw Rainbow Dash's rainbow streak disappear into the clouds, they then looked at each other.

"Huff... Ah' guess it's out 'o the question.” Applejack said, scratching her head. "It's no use if only the two of us promise something like this, it'll be best to keep on as we were and try not to argue anymore."

Then Applejack stood up, said goodbye to Fluttershy and started her way back to Sweet Apple Acres, being watched by her shy friend, who sat where she was, watching her friend walk away. Once she couldn't see Applejack, Fluttershy closed her eyes, gave a big sigh, touched her heart and gave a tender smile.

"Hehe!" Laughed Fluttershy tenderly. "The truth is, I didn't want to miss seeing Dusk either.” she said cheerfully to herself, then stood up and left the Cafe, heading for her home in the forest clearing.

That was how the six ponies departed in different directions, not knowing what fate had prepared for them that day. After all, that day was the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, and it really would be a long, long day.

Capítulo 17 – En lo profundo del bosque

[Continuación de la primera parte del capítulo 17]

“¿Con quién estabas hablando?” Preguntó Applejack luego de haber escuchado a Pinkie Pie decir ‘¡Qué no!’ a todo volumen sin ninguna razón aparente.

“No lo sé, solo sentí que debía gritar eso.” Respondió Pinkie Pie, sin darle importancia a aquello. “Imaginé que estábamos en un cuento y que yo le respondía a la malvada bruja mala.” Terminó de decir Pinkie Pie, quien se pasaba su propia fantasía por la cabeza mientras sus dos compañeros la miraban como si ella fuera una loca.

Los tres ponies siguieron avanzando entre los arboles del oscuro bosque luego de haber dejado aquella ilusión del cementerio, teniendo a Pinkie Pie por guía, mas no pasó mucho tiempo hasta que finalmente los tres llegaron a un lugar despejado, que era donde estaba el camino que atravesaba el bosque Everfree.

“¡Aquí es! ¡Aquí fue donde me desvié del camino para ir a donde estaban ustedes!” Dijo Pinkie Pie sonriendo, mirando hacia el suelo y recogiendo un caramelo que había botado allí.

Ambos ponies se miraron confundidos, luego Dusk bajó su cabeza resignado ya que sabía que hacerle una pregunta a Pinkie Pie era inútil y solo generaba más dudas, sin embargo Applejack decidió preguntar.

“¿Por qué había un caramelo en el suelo?” Preguntó Applejack.

“¡Oh! Es que yo me adelanté un poco y necesitaba dejar un rastro.” Respondió Pinkie Pie sonriendo.

“¿Un rastro para quién?” Se atrevió a preguntar Dusk. Pregunta que no fue respondida ya que de inmediato una voz se escuchó por el camino, no lejos de allí.

“¡Finalmente! ¡Allí están!” Dijo una voz con un inconfundible tono de elegancia, era Rarity, quién apareció por el camino caminando hacia ellos junto a Fluttershy.

“Pinkie Pie… te adelantaste demasiado.” Dijo Fluttershy una vez ambas ponies llegaron hasta donde estaba Dusk y compañía.

“Lo siento, es que mi Pinkie-sentido me dijo que debía darme prisa.” Respondió Pinkie Pie sonriendo y guiñándole un ojo. “Por cierto…” Agregó Pinkie Pie con una mirada suplicante, sin terminar su frase, como si esperara que Fluttershy y Rarity entendieran lo que ella quería.

“Supongo que esperas esto.” Dijo Rarity suspirando, levitando tras de sí un montón de caramelos. “Si no hubiera sido por el rastro de caramelos no hubiéramos sabido qué camino seguir.”

Pinkie Pie tomó rápidamente el lote de caramelos que levitaba frente a ella, los abrazó y se los comió todos de un bocado, haciendo que sus mejillas se hincharan mientras comía con una gran sonrisa. Mientras Pinkie Pie comía, Fluttershy y Rarity volvieron su mirada hacia Dusk, con miradas de pena y molestia respectivamente, algo que Dusk detectó en el acto, lo que hizo que bajara sus orejas avergonzado.

“No era necesario que usaras algo así con nosotras.” Dijo Rarity mirando molesta a Dusk, obviamente refiriéndose al asunto del hechizo para dormir.

“Yo… de verdad lo siento, pero creí que era lo mejor.” Respondió Dusk con la cabeza gacha.

“Nosotras solo queremos ayudar.” Dijo tímidamente Fluttershy.

“Sí, ¡Además mi melena se ensució cuando caí dormida en la tierra!” Agregó Rarity molesta. “¡Ahora no sé si podré perdonarte tan fácilmente!”

“Bueno, yo ya lo perdoné.” Dijo repentinamente Pinkie Pie luego de terminar de comer sus caramelos. “Uso un truco sucio para que lo perdonara, pero fue divertido, así que ya lo perdoné.”

“Yo también estaba enojada con Dusk.” Agregó Applejack rascándose la cabeza. “Pero luego él se sinceró conmigo y pude entender mejor sus razones, así que también lo perdoné.”

Rarity miró a ambas yeguas con una mirada sospechosa, al mirarlas ella se dio cuenta que debió de pasar algo bastante significativo, no solo una mera disculpa, para que ambas yeguas hubieran perdonado a Dusk, probablemente él había hecho algo por ellas, algo que de inmediato le causo algo de celos a la unicornio blanca pese a que seguía molesta con aquel potro.

“¿Ah, sí? Pues Flutterhsy y yo también esperaremos por nuestra disculpa, en privado con cada una.” Dijo Rarity mirando fijamente a Dusk mientras agarraba a Fluttershy para que estuviera junto a ella.

Dusk miró sorprendido a Rarity y Fluttershy, en donde la primera la miraba con una intensa y seria  mirada, mientras Fluttershy también lo miraba fijamente, y aunque la pegaso amarillo no había dicho nada, tal parecía que su silencio se debía a que ella también estaba de acuerdo con Rarity. Entonces él sonrió un poco y les dio una pequeña reverencia.

“Se los prometo.” Dijo Dusk antes de levantar su cabeza y mirar hacia atrás de Rarity y Fluttershy. “Por cierto, ¿Dónde está Rainbow Dash?”

Ante aquella pregunta tanto Fluttershy como Rarity se sonrojaron un poco, poniéndose algo nerviosas.

“Bueno… Rainbow Dash es un asunto aparte…” Dijo Rarity algo incomoda. “Ella… de verdad estaba enojada contigo, MUY enojada. Cuando despertamos y nos dimos cuenta que tú nos habías dormido para ir solo, ella… no se lo tomó muy bien.”

“Sí, yo jamás había escuchado tantas palabrotas juntas.” Dijo Pinkie Pie, recordando la reacción de Rainbow Dash cuando habían despertado. “Ella estuvo maldiciendo y golpeando el suelo bastante rato antes de calmarse un poco.”

“Entonces ella dijo que no iría tras alguien que no quería su ayuda y… se fue volando muy molesta de regreso a Ponyville.” Terminó de decir Fluttershy, mirando con un poco de lástima a Dusk.

“Sí, definitivamente deberás cuidarte cuando ella se decida a aparecer.” Dijo Rarity al tiempo que comenzaba a caminar para seguir avanzando por el camino. “En fin, este es el camino a seguir ¿Verdad? Deberíamos continuar.”

Entonces las cuatro yeguas comenzaron a caminar mientras Dusk seguía inmóvil, sin entender el último comentario de Rarity sobre Rainbow Dash.

“Espera, ¿A qué te refieres que debo cuidarme cuando Rainbow Dash aparezca? ¿Acaso no dijiste que se fue volando al pueblo?” Dijo Dusk, comenzando a caminar, alcanzando a las yeguas.

“Es Rainbow Dash, ¿De verdad crees que se fue lejos?” Dijo Applejack, que al igual que sus amigas tampoco parecía estar preocupada por el abandono de Rainbow Dash.

Al escuchar eso Dusk se detuvo un momento y se giró para ver el camino hacia atrás, en donde por el rabillo del ojo alcanzó a ver un movimiento tras un arbusto, como si algo se hubiera ocultado tras aquel matorral. Fue entonces que Dusk sonrió al comenzar a entender a que se referían las yeguas, ya que debido a la oscuridad no se podía ver bien, pero Dusk estaba seguro que lo que se había escondido tras el arbusto había sido una melena multicolor.

Mientras Dusk comenzaba a recordar el primer encuentro que tuvo con Rainbow Dash y como esta no lo abandonó en la cárcel aunque apenas lo conocía, se giró y comenzó a caminar para alcanzar a las yeguas nuevamente, las cuales no estaban muy lejos de allí, de hecho parecía como que no se movían, incluso ¿parecía que se achicaban?

“¡Dusk! ¡No te acerques!” Gritó Applejack muy tarde, al ver que Dusk ya se había acercado a donde ella y las otras estaban.

En cuanto Dusk escuchó la advertencia de Applejack, él se detuvo en el acto e intentó retroceder, pero fue inútil, sus cascos estaban atorados en la tierra, hundiéndose lentamente, tal cual como le estaba sucediendo a las yeguas, las cuales ya se habían hundido hasta sus vientres.

“¡Arenas movedizas!” Gritó Dusk al darse cuenta en donde habían caído.

En seguida Dusk activo su cuerno y primero que todo usó un hechizo refractante, el cual no tuvo ningún efecto.

“No es ninguna ilusión…” Pensó Dusk en voz alta, luego de comprobar que efectivamente estaban atrapados en unas arenas movedizas reales. Sin embargo, aunque no fuera una ilusión, aquello debía seguir siendo obra de Nightmare Moon, ya que era imposible que hubieran arenas movedizas en medio del camino, entonces ¿Eso significaba que ahora estaban siendo atacados por hechizos de transformación? Si era así, todo se pondría mucho más complicado y peligroso.

Mientras los cinco ponies se seguían hundiendo, las cuatro yeguas intentaban forcejear para liberarse, sin excito, ya que lo único que provocaban al moverse era hundirse más rápido. Por su parte Dusk estaba en la misma situación, él intentaba salir usando su magia, e intentó teletransportarse, sin embargo la tierra compactaba sus patas y hacía imposible que la magia pudiera rodear su cuerpo en la parte inferior. Finalmente Dusk comenzó a mirar hacia todos lados, buscando algo que los ayudara a salir, fue así que al levantar la vista vio que sobre ellos habían algunas lianas rojizas colgando entre las copas de los árboles, entonces comenzó a pensar en cómo podría usar aquellas lianas para escapar, un pensamiento bastante fugaz, ya que sin previo aviso un rayo arcoíris salió volando desde el arbusto que Dusk había estado mirando antes, y se acercó velozmente a donde estaban las lianas.

“Tengan, ¡Sujétense!” Dijo Rainbow Dash preocupada, viendo como sus amigas se estaban hundiendo, arrojando las lianas que había tomado cerca de las ponies mientras ella se mantenía volando sobre ellas sin tocar la tierra, sosteniendo las lianas por el otro extremo.

La primera que siguió las instrucciones de Rainbow Dash fue Applejack, quien tomó las lianas con sus dientes al tiempo que Rainbow Dash comenzó a volar hacia arriba lo más fuerte que pudo mientras sostenía las lianas, para así poder jalar de la tierra a su amiga. Rainbow Dash voló con todas sus fuerzas mientras rogaba por que aquellas lianas soportaran la fuerza del tirón. Finalmente, luego de forcejear un rato, Applejack por fin salió de un salto de las arenas movedizas, cayendo al lado del camino, en donde era terreno firme.

Una vez Applejack estuvo liberada, también tomo unas lianas y ayudó a sacar a sus amigas jalando una a la vez desde el borde del camino mientras Rainbow Dash también seguía con su rescate. Una vez rescataron a todas las yeguas, Rainbow Dash repitió el proceso con el único que quedaba, Dusk Shine, que como había sido el último en ser rescatado ya tenía la tierra hasta el cuello.

Rainbow Dash tuvo que volar con mucho más esfuerzo ya que Dusk estaba más hundido y además pesaba más que una yegua, pero la voluntad de Rainbow Dash se pudo sobreponer a su cansancio y así lentamente fue sacando a Dusk de aquella trampa de arena, hasta que finalmente, con un último esfuerzo, la yegua de melena arcoíris consiguió sacar totalmente a Dusk de la tierra, haciéndolo caer al borde del camino, mientras ella también caía debido al cansancio.

“Eso… estuvo cerca…” Dijo Rainbow Dash entre suspiros, totalmente agotada mientras seguía tirada en el suelo, rompiendo finalmente el silencio, ya que ni ella ni los demás habían dicho una sola palabra durante el rescate.

“Gracias…” Dijo Dusk también respirando agitadamente, tirado en el suelo junto a ella y mirándola con una sonrisa.

“De verdad ustedes estarían perdidos sin mí.” Dijo Rainbow Dash con una sonrisa, recuperando el aire y poniéndose de pie junto a Dusk.

“Pero si hubieras decidido aparecer antes todo esto se hubiera solucionado de mejor forma.” Dijo Rarity repentinamente, interrumpiendo a Dusk y Rainbow Dash, mirando a la pegaso celeste con seriedad, ya que ella estaba agradecida de que su amiga los salvara, pero no pudo evitar pensar que si ella no hubiera sido tan terca y hubiera estado con ellas al momento de comenzar a hundirse, su cola y melena no se hubieran ensuciado tanto.

“¿Eh?” Dijo Rainbow Dash sorprendida, ya que ella esperaba las alabanzas de sus amigas por salvarlas y en cambio al parecer la estaban juzgando.

“Sabemos que nos has estado siguiendo todo el camino y que te escondías tras los matorrales, ¿Por qué no apareciste antes?” Agregó Rarity.

Al oír eso Rainbow Dash se sonrojó de vergüenza y miró al suelo, ella se dio cuenta que había sido atrapada, pues era verdad que ella solo había fingido irse cuando despertaron, lo siguiente que ella había hecho había sido ir a escondidas tras sus amigas, ya que a pesar que ella estaba muy molesta, sabía que no podía abandonar así a sus amigas, por lo que ella había estado planeando aparecerse en cualquier momento fingiendo que pasaba volando por allí, pero al ver que sus amigas estaban en peligro ella tuvo que salir en su ayuda y se olvidó de toda su fachada.

Repentinamente Rainbow Dash levantó su cabeza para ver a Dusk, quien estaba parado a su lado, y lo miró con enojo.

“¡Es tu culpa!” Dijo Rainbow Dash casi en un grito, levantando su casco y golpeando fuertemente el costado de Dusk, haciendo que este cayera al suelo de dolor por el sorpresivo golpe. “¡Yo jamás abandono a mis amigas, pero eso no quita el hecho que este tonto me haya hecho enojar mucho!”

Acto seguido Rainbow Dash cruzó sus cascos delanteros mientras se mantenía flotando, mirando con enojo hacia otro lado, sin dirigirle la mirada a Dusk, quien permaneció en el suelo, y ahí se mantuvo el unicornio, inmóvil por varios segundos.

“¿Dusk?” Preguntó Fluttershy preocupada luego de ver que Dusk no se levantaba ni movía del suelo.

Ante la voz de preocupación de Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash no pudo evitar mirar de reojo preocupada a Dusk, ¿Acaso lo había golpeado demasiado fuerte?

“Hey, ¿estás bien?” Preguntó Rainbow Dash preocupada, agachándose un poco para ver a Dusk.

En tanto, Dusk seguía en el suelo inmóvil, pero no debido a que el golpe de la pegaso hubiera sido muy fuerte, sino que cuando cayó su cabeza cayó de frente muy cerca de donde comenzaban las arenas movedizas, y al hacerlo y ver que aquellas repentinas arenas movedizas estaban frente a él, recordó lo que había pensado mientras estaba atrapado en ellas, fue así que su cuerno se iluminó para detectar el rastro mágico que quedaba allí.

“Definitivamente es un hechizo de transformación…” Susurró Dusk sintiendo el aura mágica en su cerno, ajeno a la preocupación de las yeguas que lo miraban preocupadas. “Y… parece muy reciente.”

En cuanto Dusk dijo esas palabras, y gracias a que esta vez estaba en estado de alerta, sintió un gran cambio en el aura mágica que lo rodeaba, lo que solo implicaba una cosa, un ataque mágico.

“¡¡CUIDADO!!” Alcanzó a gritar Dusk al tiempo que las lianas que los rodeaban a él y las yeguas comenzaban a agrandarse y a agitarse ferozmente.

Las lianas que habían utilizado para salvarse de las arenas movedizas, ahora parecía que habían cobrado vida propia, creciendo a un ritmo alarmante al tiempo que se enrollaban alrededor de las yeguas.

El aviso de Dusk fue solo una fracción de segundo antes de aquel ataque mágico, por lo que solo Dusk, quien uso su teletransportación de manera instintiva, y Rainbow Dash, quien era extremadamente veloz para reaccionar; habían conseguido zafarse de aquella trampa, quedando a un lado del camino mientras veían como las lianas crecían como una enorme enredadera, atando y cubriendo a las demás yeguas.

“¡Chicas!” Gritó Rainbow Dash preocupada viendo como sus amigas estaban siendo envueltas por las lianas.

“Estamos bien… pero no podemos movernos…”Dijo con esfuerzo Applejack al tiempo que las lianas enredaderas comenzaban a crecer entre las yeguas atadas y los otros dos ponies libres, formándose lentamente un muro de lianas que comenzó a separar a Dusk y Rainbow Dash de las demás.

“¡En seguida las liberaremos!” Dijo Rainbow Dash mientras comenzaba a intentar sacar las lianas que la separaban de sus amigas. “Dusk, ayúdame a-” Dijo Rainbow Dash mirando a su lado, sin embargo no terminó de hablar ya que fue interrumpida por una enorme luz proveniente del cuerno de Dusk.

En cuanto había escapado de la trampa, Dusk vio como las enredaderas comenzaban a formar aquel muro de lianas, sin embargo él no actuó rápidamente como Rainbow Dash lo hizo, en cambio él se quedó inmóvil mientras su mente trabajó a gran velocidad para entender todo lo que sucedía antes de actuar, fue así que Dusk se dio cuenta que aquella trampa mágica, al igual que las arenas movedizas, eran provocadas por un hechizo de transformación, y si él tenía que adivinar, también había involucrado un hechizo vigorizante para hacer crecer así de rápidas las lianas, y ambos eran hechizos que debían de hacerse cerca del invocador del hechizo, por lo que aquel que hubiera desatado ese hechizo debía de estar muy cerca, observándoles. Al llegar a esa conclusión, sin escuchar lo que Rainbow Dash le había gritado, él creó una potente luz con su cuerno que iluminó todo a su alrededor, y no solo eso, aquel rayo de luz no solo servía para iluminar, sino también para detectar, indicándole si había alguien cerca, cosa que sucedió de inmediato, ya que la magia de detección de Dusk le indicó que había alguien a sus espaldas.

Dusk se giró de inmediato al sentir aquella presencia y sus ojos se asombraron al ver que no muy lejos de él estaba la mismísima Nightmare Moon, quien también mostraba una expresión de sorpresa, ya que ella jamás se imaginó que sería detectada por aquel unicornio, aquel que justamente la miraba con una penetrante mirada.

En aquel momento fue como si el tiempo se hubiera detenido, Dusk parecía que actuaba por instinto, pero nada más lejos de la realidad, ya que en realidad su cerebro trabajaba a toda su capacidad de raciocinio mientras su cuerpo se llenaba de adrenalina al saber que estaba frente a un malvado y poderoso ser que podía destruirlo a él y a las yeguas fácilmente, por lo que no había tiempo para vacilar.

Dusk fue el primero en atacar, cargando mucha de su magia en su cuerno para lanzar un poderoso hechizo aturdidor, que era uno de los hechizos de ataque más fuertes que conocía ya que él no conocía realmente ningún ataque letal, aunque si lo deseaba sabía que un rayo concentrado de magia pura podía llegar a ser fatal. Ante el sorpresivo ataque de Dusk, Nightmare Moon alcanzó por poco a reaccionar, lanzando ella también un poderoso rayo desde su cuerno.

Ambos rayos de magia se encontraron y chocaron entre sí con un gran estruendo, manteniéndose unidos entre sí mientras el unicornio y la yegua oscura seguían firmes, manteniendo aquellos poderosos rayos, intentando hacerlos más poderosos para que su rival cayera. Así se mantuvieron por unos segundos mientras el equilibrio de los rayos se mantenía imperturbable, sin embargo aunque el equilibrio se mantenía, la boca de Dusk se puso tensa mientras la boca de Nightmare Moon dibujó una sonrisa, pues ambos sabían que era cosa de tiempo, después de todo Dusk era solo un unicornio y no se podía comparar al poder de aquella malvada y poderosa alicornio, algo que era cierto y se hubiera cumplido si no hubiera sido por un pequeño detalle, un detalle que ni siquiera Nightmare Moon se había dado cuenta, ella estaba débil. Nightmare Moon había ocupado gran parte de su magia en escapar de la luna, luego en hacer su terrorífica y ostentosa entrada en Ponyville, capturar a Celestia y mantenerla prisionera, y finalmente haber creado aquellos poderosos hechizo para impedir el paso de esos ponies; una enorme cantidad de magia, que aunque Nightmare Moon fuera un alicornio y tuviera aquellos poderes oscuros, hicieron una gran merma en su reserva de magia, por lo que al enfrentar a Dusk ella estaba sin saberlo atacando con sus últimas reservas de magia.

Sorpresivamente para Dusk, Nightmare Moon y Rainbow Dash, que se había quedado mirando con la boca abierta al ver tal enfrentamiento mágico; el equilibrio de la magia se rompió, haciendo que el rayo de magia de Dusk avanzara al tiempo que el de Nightmare Moon se devolvía, haciendo que ambos rayos de energía golpearan fuertemente a Nightmare Moon, quien justo antes de ser golpeada no pudo creer que estuviera siendo vencida por un simple pony.

Dusk Shine en busca de la Felicidad -C17-1 by BigSnusnu

Tras el golpe, Nightmare Moon salió disparada, golpeándose contra un árbol y cayendo de espaldas con sus ojos cerrados. En tanto Rainbow Dash seguía asombrada viendo a Dusk mientras este último intentaba recuperar el aliento, también incrédulo de lo que acababa de hacer. Sin embargo la incredulidad de Dusk duró poco, porque su mente le advirtió que no podía dejar nada al azar y debía asegurarse de terminar todo para poder salvar a la princesa, así que Dusk corrió y se abalanzó donde había caído Nightmare Moon desmayada, cayendo sobre ella y sosteniendo sus patas con sus cascos.

“¿¡Dónde está la princesa!?” Gritó Dusk con furia, exhausto, mientras sostenía a la yegua oscura bajo él.

Al estar frente a frente contra Nightmare Moon, Dusk se dio cuenta que aquella yegua oscura se veía diferente a como la recordaba que había visto en el gran salón de Ponyville, incluso más, él juraría que se veía distinta de la enorme yegua oscura que había atacado hace unos segundos atrás. La yegua que sostenía bajo él definitivamente era Nightmare Moon, pero tenía ciertas características distintas, primero era su tamaño, el cual parecía haber disminuido levemente, segundo era su piel, que había dejado de ser totalmente negra, ahora mostraba un leve color azulado, y tercero era su melena, la cual había dejado de moverse con su habitual movimiento uniforme que asimilaba una nube, ahora se veía de un azul más pálido mientras parecía que los brillos que tenía en ella se iban apagando. Sin embargo lo que más asombró a Dusk fueron los ojos de Nightmare Moon, los cuales seguían cerrados, sin embargo estaban botando lágrimas.

“Por favor…” Dijo repentinamente Nightmare Moon, aún con sus ojos cerrados llorando, pero no con su aterradora voz que todos conocían, sino con una voz más dócil y frágil. “Mátame…”

Aquella voz y súplica provenientes de Nightmare Moon, descolocaron por completo a Dusk, que estaba preparado para todo, para todo menos para aquella situación.

Repentinamente las estrellas en la melena de Nightmare Moon volvieron a brillar mientras su melena volvía a su carácter etéreo, pareció que recuperó su gran altura, su piel volvió a su característico negro absoluto, y sus ojos se abrieron velozmente, mostrando sus agudos y malvados ojos de siempre.

Con un grito y un pequeño estallido en su cuerno, Nightmare Moon uso lo poco que quedaba de su poder para hacer que Dusk volara lejos, haciéndolo caer a unos pocos pasos de ella. Mientras Dusk se volvía a poner de pie tras el golpe, vio con asombro a Nightmare Moon, que tenía una expresión de completo terror en su rostro. Dusk no lo sabía, pero ella por poco había perdido el control, lo que hizo que por primera vez en mil años ella sintiera verdadero terror.

La yegua oscura levantó su vista y vio a aquel unicornio que la había enfrentado, ella no podía aceptar ser más débil que alguien más, sin embargo tras aquel desmayo que había casi liberado a ‘su otra yo’, su miedo y cautela pudieron más que su orgullo personal, por lo que extendió sus alas y salió rápidamente volando de allí, de vuelta al castillo.

“¡¡Espera!!” Gritó Dusk luego de ver huir a Nightmare Moon, preparándose para correr e ir en su caza.

“¡Dusk!” Gritó sorpresivamente Rainbow Dash, quién aún no se reponía del todo luego de haber visto la lucha entre Dusk y Nightmare Moon, pero al ver que el unicornio se disponía a correr, ella volvió en sí. “¡Debemos liberar a las demás!”

Dusk se giró para ver a Rainbow Dash, quien estaba de pie al lado del muro de lianas, mirándolo fijamente. Entonces él volvió a mirar a Nightmare Moon, su silueta ya era apenas visible, pero si se daba prisa aún podía alcanzarla.

“¡Si la alcanzo ahora que está debilitada puedo acabar con todo!” Gritó Dusk desesperado sin moverse, sabiendo que había dejado escapara a aquel monstruo solo por su tonta vacilación.

Dusk siguió mirando alejarse a la yegua oscura mientras sus músculos se tensaban más y más, listos para salir corriendo en su búsqueda.

“Dusk…” Dijo Rainbow Dash perdiendo su convicción, ya que ella no podía abandonar a sus amigas, pero lo que había dicho Dusk era cierto, si él alcanzaba a Nightmare Moon y lograba detenerla quizás todo acabase. “Es-Está bien… ve.”

Dusk se giró y volvió a ver a Rainbow Dash, quien miraba hacia el suelo tristemente, una mirada que por alguna razón le dolió a Dusk. En ese momento Dusk recordó cuando todas las yeguas se habían ofrecido a ayudarlo y él las durmió con un hechizo para ir solo.

“Yo…” Dijo Dusk también mirando al suelo mientras sus músculos lentamente dejaron de estar tensos. Finalmente él dio un gran suspiro, se relajó y volvió a mirar a Rainbow Dash. “Yo me quedaré… No puedo volver a abandonarlas.”

Tras decir aquellas palabras Dusk se giró para enfrentar el muro de lianas y comenzó a usar su magia para cortar a través de él, en tanto Rainbow Dash levantó la vista y vio como el unicornio se había quedado a su lado.

“P-Pero tienes razón, si la alcanzas puedes acabar con todo esto.” Dijo Rainbow Dash mirando fijamente a Dusk.

“Puede ser, pero no hay garantía de que eso suceda.” Dijo Dusk sin dejar de mirar el muro de lianas y sin dejar de cortar a través de él. “Quizás… lo mejor sea enfrentarla todos juntos.”

Ante aquellas palabras Rainbow Dash miró con un brillo en sus ojos a Dusk, mas no dijo nada y simplemente comenzó a sacar lianas con sus cascos para ayudar a Dusk.

“Sabes…” Dijo repentinamente Dusk, dejando de cortar lianas. “Hace tiempo tenía una amiga, ella… ella siempre estaba conmigo, pero en cierta ocasión hice algo que le molestó mucho, algo que pensé que la haría feliz, pero fue todo lo contrario… Fue entonces que ella me abandonó, justo cuando más la necesitaba. Desde entonces siempre creí que la palabra ‘perdón’ no existe en la amistad, la amistad se acaba cuando alguien hace algo malo contra ti… Por eso creí que ustedes al enterarse tan abruptamente de la verdad tras mi venida a Ponyville acabaría con todo vínculo que habíamos forjado, sin embargo volvieron a ayudarme; luego yo las abandoné para adentrarme solo en el bosque, sabiendo que estaba rompiendo nuevamente su confianza, pero ustedes volvieron otra vez. Yo… ahora creo entender por qué, quizás yo estaba equivocado y los verdaderos amigos si te perdonan, los verdaderos amigos nunca te abandonan…” En ese punto Dusk se giró para ver directamente a Rainbow Dash. “Yo creí que al evitar que me acompañaran las estaría protegiendo, pero no tomé en cuenta sus sentimientos ni lo que ustedes querían, ahora sé que puedo protegerlas sin tener que estar solo, yo… no quiero estar solo, ¡Quiero que ustedes estén a mi lado!

“Por favor, perdóname.” Dijo Dusk acercándose inconscientemente un poco a Rainbow Dash. “Prometo que jamás te abandonaré, ni a ti ni a las demás, nunca más.”

Rainbow Dash miró asombrada a Dusk, todo aquel discurso había tomado por sorpresa a la pegaso, por lo que ella no supo cómo reaccionar inmediatamente, menos ante la tierna y sincera mirada de Dusk, por lo que ella no dijo nada y siguió tirando de las lianas para intentar romper el muro que se había creado. Dusk agachó un poco su cabeza y volvió a la tarea que tenía, las demás yeguas le habían dicho que Rainbow Dash no lo perdonaría tan fácilmente, pero al menos él ya se había sincerado y había dicho lo que tenía que decir, por lo que se quitó un peso de encima, aunque en el fondo le dolió saber que la pegaso celeste no lo había perdonado.

Mientras seguían cortando las lianas, sin que Dusk se diera cuenta, Rainbow Dash estaba totalmente sonrojada, aún cortando furiosamente las lianas. Ella había estado esperando una disculpa por parte de Dusk, y él finalmente había dicho todo lo que ella quería y necesitaba oír, sin embargo ella no quería admitir que ya había perdonado a Dusk, ella era mucho más fuerte de carácter, ella no podía simplemente perdonarlo luego de todo aquello, sin embargo ella no podía sacarse el discurso de Dusk de la cabeza ni podía sacarse el recuerdo de la tierna mirada de Dusk, lo que hacía que se sonrojara.

Repentinamente, mientras Dusk seguía cortando lianas, él sintió un fuerte golpe en su costado que lo hizo detenerse, al girarse vio que había sido Rainbow Dash quien le había golpeado.

“Está bien, te perdono, pero solo porque fuiste demasiado cursi.” Dijo Rainbow Dash sin mirar a Dusk.

A Dusk le dolió un poco el golpe, pero al escuchar aquellas palabras su alegría hizo que olvidara el dolor y solo sintiera el alivio de saber que Rainbow Dash lo había perdonado, y con una sonrisa continuó cortando lianas con su magia.

En tanto Rainbow Dash seguía sin mirar a Dusk, totalmente sonrojada, mientras seguía recordando lo que acababa de decirle Dusk: “Prometo que jamás te abandonaré.”

# Fin del capítulo 17
Sorry for not publishing the pages in English, but who corrects my dialogues in English (Bookrider) still doesn't respond me. I could publish it with the dialogues exactly as I translated them, but I wouldn't like to publish a job with errors (my English may be fine, but I prefer to have someone who speaks native English).
It has been more than a week since I have the pages ready, but I didn't want to wait any longer, so I published the Spanish version.
If someone (who speaks English as a native language) would like to help me, I would appreciate it, becuase it seems that who helps me is busy this week =P
Thank you :)

No sabía que andabas malito de salud, perdona. Incluso empezaba a pensar que habías perdido interes en MLP como paso con jaquelindreamz (la creadora de Eris, r63 de Discord).

Recuperate y nos vemos pronto.

no te preocupes, si hay algo en lo que soy obsesivo es en terminar lo que empiezo :)

perdón la demora, la verdad con la historia de Dusk esperaba publicar al mismo tiempo la versión en ingles del capítulo 1 con el capítulo 2, supongo que solo esperaré esta semana sino subiré solo la versión en español.
también estoy avanzando en el comic 'little monster' en cuanto tenga las 2 primeras páginas listas las publicaré (he avanzado más lento ya que no es comedia, es drama, y quiero transmitir correctamente las emociones)

 gracias por la preocupación ;)
