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 mela, 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 da Sweetie screeching, "Rarity! Sis! S-i-i-i-i-s!!!" And mela, 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 arcobaleno still hadn't shown up. "Hey, uh, Twilight?" Scootaloo asked. "Where's arcobaleno Dash?" The half-hearted smile on Twilight Sparkle's face slid off, replaced with an apologetic look. "Scootaloo, I'm sorry, she... She wanted te to have this." A letter was placed in Scootaloo's hooves. She nodded, throat constricting. "O-okay." She detto bravely, tears in her voice. "I- I'm gonna go read it." Twilight nodded, but the arancia, arancio filly was gone.
Scootaloo sat in a albero 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 te remember all the fun things we did together? Remember, the one time I called te a chicken, and te got so mad? I do. Remember the time te slept at my place, and had a nightmare? te curled up with me, and te smiled in your sleep. I Amore ya, squirt. If I don't make it, Egg head will give te this letter, if she doesn't, I'll haunt her forever. I promised I would. Scootaloo, I want te to forget me. Don't go into life-long mourning, I mean. I want te to sposta on, have a life, maybe even have a kid o 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 te to know this:
I Amore you.
I Amore ya, Scoots.
I Amore ya squirt.
You'll always be my little Chicken. No matter what.
Scootaloo stared at the collana that had fallen from the sealed tube of paper. It was a beautiful arcobaleno 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 Amore te 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 arcobaleno 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 te 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 home in Cloudsdale.
arcobaleno Dash watched Scootaloo flying away, guiding her daughter onto the thermals so she would rise higher. She smiled, and whispered, "I knew te could, squirt. I always knew." She turned to the Princess of Balance, and the alicorn smiled. Her voice contained power, and gentleness. "Come, Rainbow, te must return to the underworld." arcobaleno laughed good naturedly. "Of course, Princess." The alicorn glared at her. "What did I tell te about calling me that?" arcobaleno laughed again, "Okay, okay, Ayari. te 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...
