The rusty and metallic smell of fresh blood filled the air, and Rainbow Dash surveyed her surroundings. So much for that, she couldn't see, two feet in front of her, the fog was so thick. She realized Rarity, her friend, or SO-called friend was standing there, in front of her laughing sadistically. "This is only going to hurt, well, a lot!" Rarity cheered as she ripped Dash's wing out of her sockets, leaving it dislocated and limp so she wouldn't have any chances of escaping. She screamed in utter agony as the twisted pony squealed in happiness as she ripped the other wing out of place. "Isn't this just, FUN?" She winked at Rainbow Dash, and with that, Dash lost all consciousness she had left.
Twilight kneeled in horror and awe as she held Rainbow Dash who lay on the cold hard ground, lifeless as can be. "WAKE UP! Please... DON'T YOU DARE DO THIS TO ME YOU BASTARD." Tears starting to blur her vision, "I LOVE YOU WAY TOO FUCKING MUCH TO JUST LET YOU DIE HERE." Her tears now dripping down her face, soaking her limp body. "Why
?" she asked to herself now, burying her face in her blood soaked chest, sobbing uncontrollably. "It just isn't fair
Fluttershy stared at Rainbow dash who was unconscious, but still breathing. very shallow breaths, but STILL breathing. "R-R-Rainbow Dash? Um. Err, please wake up
" She stood a few hooves back from the bloody mess that was Dash. This whole disaster her chills, and she was terrified; but oddly enough she was the only one that didn't show it. Applejack stood in terror far back from the huge catastrophe. Rarity refused to be anywhere near the bloodbath, and Pinkie Pie's joyful, party attitude was gone, more than that, it was oddly gray. Her hair was straight and flat, her pupils dilated. Pinkie had a Crazed look in her gleaming eyes. But it was Dash who appeared the worst of all. She wasn't even conscious. Her hair was a cut up, ratty mess, her wings broken and bloody, and worst of all: covered in blood from head to hooves.
"T-T-Twilight? What's wrong with her?" Clueless and confused pinkie questioned. "Why isn't she moving? Is she okay? Is she sleeping or something?" She just didn't want to hear the truth. Or even accept it into her own mind that Dash would. NO. She wouldn't even let that into her thoughts. She couldn't even ponder what Dash would endure when and if she awoke... It was too much to bare. Pinkie met her breaking point and started bawling before Twilight could answer her simple, childish questions, ones she already knew the answer to.
"Pinkie." Twilight explained. "I know this is hard to go through, but please don't ask questions to make the situation for yourself, and everypony else worse." This only made Pinkie sob harder and get so worked up she vomited. There was really nothing anyone could do. They were all enveloped in their own worries for themselves and Dash to worry about Pinkie.
But, while everypony was busy worrying about what was going on, or what would happen next. Dash regained consciousness. Pinkie's eyes grew wide with joy, and all of a sudden she was back to, well her annoying Pinkie self. "DASH IS AWAKE!!! DASH IS AWAKE! Ooooo, goodie! She's awake and she's okay!" Pinkie sang in exuberance.
"Nooo, Dash why did you have to let her KNOW you're awake. Of all the things that could happen this is THE WORST THING!" Rarity whined wearily. Everypony looked at Rarity, they'd had QUITE enough of her, but they didn't even know the worst part yet. Guess they'll have to wait and see!
"Oh Rarity, shut the hell up already! Y'all are driving me crazy with your incoherent jibber jabber!" Applejack huffed as she kicked dirt into her too clean friend's face.
Rarity snorted, and shook the dirt off of her silky and shiny coat. There was something odd going on with her.. I mean, there always is, but her outlook on all this was a bit too fishy to handle. "For the love of Celestia.. I'm going to just kill you all. Forget RD. She's already as good as dead." She muttered to herself eager to get rid of them once and for all.
Then a piercing scream filled the silence of the cave, and it shattered the ponys' ears. Rainbow Dash had regained all the feeling she lost when her adrenaline kicked in a few minutes ago, now wearing off completely as she started to interpret what was going on around her. "Please, Twilight
Help me?" The beautiful blue pony's eyes now filled with pain and confusion as she tried to grip the reality of what was really happening.
"Shhh, it's okay Rainbow, I'm here." Twilights eyes sparkled reassuringly at her, gleaming even. She had a smile on her face, though her eyes were filling with even more tears. They kept flowing. "Everything's okay now. You're awake and that's all that matters."
Pinkie's attention went back to Rainbow Dash, seeing that she was in such great pain, and they'd probably all die trying to get out of there, if they only knew who did this. Then they might stand a chance. "Is she okay?" The pink pony pondered as she stumbled towards Twilight and Rainbow. "Rainbow? How are you? Do you hurt? Where do you hurt? I'll help!" Pinkie tried nudging her snout under Rainbow to pick her up, but a shriek of suffering pursed through her lips which made Pinkie leap back, dropping Rainbow. Another whimper coming out of her mouth. "Oh my gosh. I am so, so, so, so, SO sorry Dashie!" Pinkie cried in hopes that her friend wouldn't hate her forever. That was her worst fear. Being hated was her LEAST favorite thing!
"Oh, Pinkie. It's all right, right? At least I'm alive and conscious!" Rainbow comforted her. "Really, I'm okay." She encouraged so the pink pony wouldn't have to worry.
"Okey dokey lokey!" Pinkie beamed in happiness and started bouncing and galloping around the cave. Her attention had left Rainbow, and entered the magic of the beautiful, jeweled cave.
"Well this is just WONDERFUL. We are getting NOWHERE here, ponies. Dammit, c'mon! Then sooner we start heading out is the sooner we can be home, happy as can fucking be!" Rarity roared in anger as all the ponies gathered around Dash to make sure she was okay. Maybe it wasn't such a good idea in the first place
No, it was. This way she had no hopes of flying herself out of this one! Gosh would her mentor be so proud when he found that she had done such magnificent, hideous things to her "friends".
"R-R-Rarity, it isn't fair that you're bossing us all around.., I mean, you shouldn't, Ohh
Never mind." Fluttershy trailed off as she dove farther into the mess of her statement as Rarity just gave her the dirtiest look. She buried her hands in her hooves and started sniveling quietly. Rarity was frightening her.
"We need to
We need to keep moving. I can still walk. See?" With that, Rainbow Dash got up, slowly, but surely and limped towards Fluttershy. Rainbow gazed into her eyes, trying to look as eased as possible. But then she collapsed, unable to get back up, even with the help of her friends at each of her sides. "It's no use, we'll never make it out of here..." Cried the pony who had been so reassuring and confident, the one who could conquer even the hardest of challenges. She had given up, which is exactly what Rarity was hoping she'd do; just the spark to keep the ponies hopeless.
