Chapter 12: Middleton

Location: Middleton
Dimension: Kim Possible

Kim buried her face in her hands again, tears streaming from her eyes as she knelt in what remained of her hometown.  All around her, buildings were destroyed and left in complete ruin with shards of their walls strewn all over the place.  Suburban houses had been crumbled down to their foundations, many of them with cars and other pieces of debris from the city within them.  The streets were littered with cars and wreckage from either the surrounding buildings or from pieces of the pavement itself.  There were only a few buildings that were still intact, but even those had windows and giant chunks of the sides missing.  The sky was covered with a thin layer of clouds that allowed some of the sun to peak through.

Softly, Kim began sobbing as all of her thoughts began rushing through her at once.  What had happened here?  Was everyone alright?  What happened to her family?  Her friends?  What in the world could cause so much devastation like this?  Sure, these thoughts had emerged in the other places they were in, but this was her home and it hit her like a blade through her heart.

As she continued to sob in the middle of the road, the other three shot each other sad glances; neither of them knew what to say to her.  Tears began streaming down Sailor Moon’s face as both Twilight and Mew hung their heads, their eyes softly closed.

After a while, Sailor Moon slowly walked up to Kim, knelt beside her, and placed her arms around her, bringing her into an embrace.  She rested Kim’s head on her shoulders as she tried her best to contain her own crying, but to no avail.

“I’m sorry,” she said softly, rubbing her back in an attempt to comfort her.  “I’m so, so sorry.”

“Why?” Kim asked softly through tears, mostly to herself.  “Why is this happening?  What’s going on?  What’s causing all of this devastation?”

Sailor Moon didn’t respond.  All she could do was hold her, her tears falling down onto Kim’s hair.  Mew flew up to Kim and began nudging his head against her arm, trying his best to comfort her like a kitten would its owner.  Even Twilight trotted up to her and placed a hoof on her back.

“My condolences,” she said softly.

After a few moments, Kim eventually looked up, her eyes red and glossy from her tears.  She looked back and forth to try and make head or tails of where they were.  Although they were in the middle of carnage, she was able to identify some of the more familiar landmarks nearby.  Slowly, she stood up, making the others back away from her and follow suit.

“I have to go,” Kim said as she began walking away.  Soon, her walking became more of a jog, slowly turning into a limped jog; she wanted to run as fast as she could, but with the wounds on her stomach and the events they just went through, she couldn’t.

“Where are you going?” asked Sailor Moon, following her as best as she could.

“I have to see if my family is okay,” she said, not turning or slowing her pace.

“Kim, wait a minute,” shouted Twilight as she used her magic to levitate the unconscious hedgehog.  Then, she began trotting after her with Mew and Sailor Moon not too far behind.  “We need to stick together, remember?”

“Mom...Dad...” Kim said softly, as if she were in a trance of some kind.

“Kim!” Sailor Moon shouted.  “Please, wait for-”

A loud boom echoed across the sky, interrupting Sailor Moon and stopping all four of them in their tracks.  They all turned around to notice that the same purplish-white swirl was in the sky again, just like they had seen before.

“Something’s coming through,” said Twilight.  “No doubt we attracted unwanted attention.  We need to hide somewhere and fast!”

Quickly, they all looked around for the most secure-looking building they could hide inside.  Instantly, Kim’s eyes locked onto the remains of a small restaurant that she was all too familiar with: Bueño Nacho.  Fortunately, most of it was still intact, save for half of the building that was caved in from what looked like the wall of a building.  The windows were all shattered and there was a gaping hole where the doors used to be.

However, the mere sight of the eatery instantly brought back memories, like how she and her friends used to go there all the time.  It was in that quick moment that an image of her boyfriend, Ron, flashed before her eyes, causing her heart to sink further down in her chest.  She clutched it as the thoughts of something terrible happening to him began racing through her mind, causing fresh tears to stream from her eyes.

“Kim,” Twilight said, snapping her out of her thoughts, though it didn’t relinquish them.  “We need to get out of sight, now!”

Wiping her eyes, she pointed to the restaurant.  “Over there, quickly!”

They all ran towards the half-standing structure, leaping through the entrance and ducking down out of sight.  Since the booths on the wall adjacent to the door were destroyed or crushed and the windows above it were shattered, they were able to duck underneath it, being careful not to kneel on broken glass.   Then, they all peaked out to see what was coming through the portal-like spiral.  From the spiraling swirl, three different things fell to the ground.  One of them they instantly recognized as the winged scorpion-like creature from the Toy Town, but the other two were completely different.  Now that they were looking at them in the light, they were able to see every detail of the creatures, and it terrified them even more.

The second creature appeared to look like an oversized dragonfly, except without the bulbous eyes they often had.  Instead, it had one red light in the center of its head and the mouth that looked like an ant’s.  By the looks of it, it didn’t appear to have any legs underneath it whatsoever.  It still had its elongated body and tail, except the body looked much bigger; it was as if it were meant to hold something inside of it.  Using its mechanized wings that glistened in whatever sunlight was available, it slowly hovered its way to the ground.

The third thing wasn’t a creature at all.  Whether it was because of the distance, they couldn’t tell, but the third thing looked like a small ball that hovered in the air with the dragonfly.  The only noticeable features on it were the black color that it was made out of and a small red light that was in the dead center of it.

Practically holding their breaths, the four of them watched as the three creatures hovered around the wreckage of the ship that Mew destroyed.  The scorpion unfurled its legs and landed on the ground, slowly walking around while the blue beam from its tail scanned the ship and the surrounding buildings.  The small orb did the same as a similar blue beam shot out of where the red light was.  All the while, the dragonfly creature hovered above everything, almost as if it were waiting for instructions.

When they saw the blue beam from the orb heading towards them, they all ducked down, literally holding their breaths this time.  From above, they saw the beam scan the insides of the restaurant, going from one end to the other and back again.  After 3 rotations, the beam disappeared.

Twilight got ready to peak her head up to see if it was safe, but was stopped by Kim.  She placed her hand on her shoulder and whispered, “Not yet.”

A minute or two went by before they were convinced the creatures didn’t know of their presence.  Slowly, the four of them peaked over the wall to see that the three things were now focusing on the ship, both the orb and the scorpion’s blue beams scanning what remained of it.  While the latter hovered above the wreckage, the former crawled all over it, investigating the damage with its head.

After a few moments, the scorpion unfurled its wings and flew up to the dragonfly, no doubt giving it some kind of orders.  The orb remained with the ship, hovering around it and inspecting it from all angles.

Then, all four of their hearts jumped as the sound of a loud cough filled the air.  The second the sound was made, the orb turned in their direction, forcing the four of them to duck down.  They all turned their attention to Sonic, who was slowly beginning to regain consciousness.  He let out a cough again, making their hearts skip a beat again as they heard the whirring sounds of the orb approaching them.

Quickly, Kim placed a hand over Sonic’s mouth, trying her best to muffle his coughing without suffocating him.  Sweat began running down her face as she heard the mechanized whirring of the orb coming closer and closer.

It sounded like a low humming sound at first, but the closer it got, the more it started to sound like a small fan blade, spinning fast and loud.  It hovered above the wall where they were ducking, shooting its blue laser in the building to scan it again.  They didn’t move a muscle as they watched the orb, waiting for it to vacate.

Across the street, they all heard the sound of a piece of wreckage, more than likely from one of the destroyed buildings, fall to the ground and create a loud bang.  In the blink of an eye, the ball quickly turned in the same direction and fired its laser at it.  However, instead of the blue laser they were familiar with seeing, they saw that it was firing a deep crimson laser.  It made a loud zwoom sound as it swayed the laser from one side to the other.  Moments later, they heard the orb float away in the direction it had just been firing.

Slowly, the four of them peeked from their hiding place to see that the laser had cut right through a building like a hot knife through butter.  They could see that the laser left behind a clean cut right through the building, the foundation still standing glowing red from the heat of the laser.

The ball hovered in front of the building, scanning its blue laser at what it just shot at.  Then, the scorpion flew over and landed besides it, resting its wings closed as its legs unfurled from underneath it.

The four of them watched as the two of them faced each other and began making noises at one another.  By the sounds of it, the scorpion was making deep moans and groans while the orb made continuous whirring sounds.

“What are they doing?” whispered Sailor Moon.

“Looks like they’re...talking to each other,” Twilight hesitantly said, tilting her head at the sight.

“Any idea what they’re saying?”

“I don’t know, it’s hard to tell,” Kim answered.  “It doesn’t sound like anything I’m familiar with.  Perhaps it’s some sort of alien dialect only they understand.”

They continued to watch in silence as the two creatures continued to talk to each other.  After a few exchanges, they watched as the orb hovered away, heading towards the dragonfly.  Being left alone, the scorpion looked at the wreckage, hearing the sounds of metallic clanks as it slowly crawled towards it.  Then, all of their hearts jumped when they heard Sonic let out a cough again, forcing the creature to turn its head towards them, a gravely hiss sound following shortly.

Quickly, they all ducked down to hide.  Instantly, they saw Sonic slowly trying to get up, his eyes slowly adjusting to the light.

“What’s going on?” he asked uneasily, rubbing his head with hand.  “Where are...?”

He was immediately interrupted by Kim putting her hand over his mouth while cringing.

Then, all of their hearts came to a complete standstill as they heard a loud clang coming from above them.  They all looked up to see the scorpion looking at them, its tail scanning them before switching to its claw-tail.

As it beared its teeth at them, Kim yelled, “RUN!”

In a heartbeat, Twilight levitated the closest piece of debris she could find and threw it at the creature, knocking it back from the window-frame.  Then, all of them got up and began running out of the building and down the road.  From behind them, they heard the beast let out a bellow as it flew towards them.

Turning her head to catch a quick glance, Kim shouted, “DOWN!”

All of them dived forward as they watched its tail swoop above them, swinging back and forth as it tried to get a grip on any of them.  When it missed its target, it circled around for another attempt.

“Looks like I didn't miss much,” said Sonic as they all got up and began running again.  Immediately, they all jumped out of the way as it tried taking another dive at them, missing once again.  As they all got up and began to run, Sonic nearly lost his balance as he gripped his head; running for his life having just woken up from an unconscious state wasn't really mixing well with him.

“Are you going to be alright?” Twilight asked as she galloped alongside of him.

“I’ll be fine,” he fibbed, flashing a weary smile.  “It’d help if we could slow that thing down or something!”

Mew, Mew,” said Mew as he flew up into the sky and turned to face the creature.  Quickly, it fired its pink beam at it in an attempt to hit it.  Unfortunately, the creature rolled out of the way by spinning to the left with its wings close to its body.  Then, it unfurled them again, let out an angered roar and continued to advance on him, appearing to flap its dragon-like wings even harder than before.

Mew began flying towards the others, the creature closing in on him.  When he was closer to the group, he turned again and fired his attack at it.  Like before, it spun out of the way and let out another bellow as it seemed to go faster and faster.

“I think you’re only making it angry,” said Twilight.  “Still, it’s a valiant effort!”

“Any idea where we’re going?” asked Sailor Moon as she tried not to lose her balance on the uneven pavement underneath her.

No one responded.

“Kim, this is your home, right?” Sonic asked as he leaped over an upturned vehicle.  “You do know where we’re going, don’t you?”

She didn’t answer him, her eyes looking back and forth at the wreckage all around them.  As she avoided the debris all over the streets, she tried her best to make out where they were.  Unfortunately, with everything nearly in shambles and the dire situation they were in, it was difficult to pinpoint certain locales they could find refuge in.

“I...I...,” she said in a breathy voice.  “I don’t know!  I can’t get my head straight!  I’m...I’m sorry.”

As they turned down a street and headed towards what looked the remnants of a school, Sonic said, “Not for anything, but is that the only one after us?”

No sooner did the question leave his mouth did the others see the dragonfly creature zoom over their heads and hover in front of them.  In a split second, all of them stopped moving and got ready to run in another direction.  However, the bottom of the creature exposed a grey cylindrical device with a red tip; a missile, most of them recognized.  Before any of them could start running, the dragonfly fired its primary weapon at them, moving too fast for any of them to react.  It may not have hit any of them directly, but it was close enough for the shockwave to knock all of them on the ground; even though Mew was in the air, the blast was enough to push him down to the street.

For Kim, everything began to turn into a blur as a ringing sound echoed in her ears.  Time seemed to slow down as she tried to make out what was happening.  Although it was blurry, she saw the two creatures hover over all of them before making its way towards her, the claw on the scorpion’s tail opening.  Desperately, she put a hand up to try and stop it, her vision starting to turn black all around her.  Then, something must have happened because the two creatures stopped advancing on her, both of them turning their heads in another direction.

The ringing in her ears was slowly going away, but her normal hearing was still muffled.  Therefore, she couldn’t hear what it was that was being shot at the creatures, but the blaster-like beams of light hit the scorpion and sent it flying backwards, shattering in multiple pieces before it hit the ground, lifeless.  Immediately, the dragonfly turned and tried to fly away, only to suffer the same fate as its cohort.

Her eyelids began to feel heavy as the blackness began to consume everything.  In the remaining moments she had, she could have sworn she saw a humanoid stand over her, some sort of gas-mask on its face and a gun-type of weapon in its hands.  It stared at her for a few moments before it began making gestures with one hand; it was like it was signaling something else to take a look at her.  Out of her distorted peripherals she could see more of them surrounding the others.

In a matter of seconds, another humanoid stood over her, looking just like the other.  This one knelt down in front of her, almost like it was closely examining her.  Then, she could have sworn she heard it say something, something that she didn't expect it to say, but couldn't respond to in time.

"It can’t be! that you?"

Then, she completely blacked out.

It stood in what remained of the wreckage, only turning its head back and forth to oversee the damage that had been done.  The flames had died down, though smoke still came from the bottom where the boosters used to be.  The yellow fuel began pooling across the ground, making it take a few steps back to avoid making contact with it.

The being stood in what appeared to be a long black coat, a hood covering its face and a long golden staff in its hands.  The coat was kept closed to conceal the rest of its body from being seen.

Lifting its head, it held the staff in front of its body, raising it and slamming the bottom on the ground.  With an echoing sound like a small mallet hitting a small bell, the orb that oversaw the wreckage hovered in front of its cloaked face.  Then, the two of them began speaking to one another.  [Although it was in an unknown dialect, it’s able to be translated into English].

“Damage report,” the cloaked creature said.

“It’s salvageable,” the orb said.  “The dimension-opener is inoperable, but the transport-core is still intact, my lord.”

The “lord” nodded its head.  “Excellent.  It’s only a matter of time before they come back for it.  Better make sure it leads them right where we want them.”

The mechanical ball gave what looked like a nod to the “lord” as it hovered towards the ship, disappearing within the openings.  Then, it took its staff in its hands and looked at the upper tip of it, where a spherical crystal with what looked like black smoke inside of it, rested.  It placed its hand on the crystal, making it glow a bluish color.

“They’ve managed to survive, but we need to be sure,” it said.  “Send in the first wave.  I need to see if they truly have what it takes.”

Then, it removed its hand from the crystal, the blue hue disappearing.  It wasn’t long before the orb returned.

“The core has been re-coded, my lord,” it said.  “It will send them to the ‘Tractor’, as per your orders.”

“Excellent,” the lord said.  “That will certainly finish them off.  That is, if manage to survive the five we are about the send.”

“Not to question your orders, but what if they do survive?  They could try to interfere with our operations in that dimension.”

The lord let out what sounded like a chuckle.  “Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.  We will deal with that as it comes.  For now, see to it that the five have been fully prepared to stop these so-called, ‘heroes’ at any cost.”

“Understood, my lord,” the orb said.  Then, it began making several whirring and beeping noises before hovering away.

The lord looked down at the wreckage before focusing on the crystal on the tip of his staff.  As it radiated its blue hue, a single triangular eye, glowing a crimson color with a hint of orange, could be seen underneath its hood.

"They may have what it takes to survive this little test,” it said.  “But, in the end, they will come to understand that I am in complete control of their fate.  No matter how far they go, no matter how hard they try, they will die."
The Five Heroes - Chapter 12
Everything we know about the dimensions of the universe changes when an evil force begins traveling to and destroying different dimensions, capturing and enslaving the populaces, and leaving the destroyed world to rot and wither away into nothing. Amidst the treachery, five of the most unlikely of heroes from five completely different dimensions awaken in a barren wasteland, with no recollection of how they got there or about what happened prior to their arrival and awakening. With no other options, the five heroes must put aside their differences and stop the unknown evil from destroying dimensions, rescue the enslaved populaces, and restore balance to the dimensions of the universe.

Chapter 15: Realizations

Rarity and Thunderlane trotted down the dirt path side-by-side with Rumble following close behind and Sweetie Belle still on her sister’s back.  It was late afternoon by now and the weather, although sunny, was still quite cool with a small breeze kicking in every now and then.

As they entered Ponyville, Rarity’s anxiety had dissipated enough for her motions to appear less feigned; her smile was natural, her step was relaxed and she was able to make small talk with little to no trouble at all.

“So, how are things?” Rarity asked.

Thunderlane replied, “Everything’s fine.  How about yourself?”

“Just fine, darling.”

It was in that moment a thought came across her mind, causing her to look behind her while tapping a hoof on her chin.  Looking ahead, she furrowed her eyebrows as she looked down at the ground, her eyes shifting back and forth.

Seeing this, Thunderlane asked, “Is everything alright?”

“I suppose,” she said in an unsure tone.  She looked up to him and asked, “Do you ever get that strange feeling like you’ve forgotten something?”

He let out a laugh.  “Are you kidding?  I’d forget my own name if everypony didn’t say it all the time!”

The two of them shared a laugh as they entered Ponyville.  Looking ahead of them, Thunderlane saw the stage in front of Town Hall, his expression turning to one of astonishment.

“Wow, they’re really working fast,” he commented.

“Indeed,” Rarity agreed.  “At this rate, they’ll definitely have everything finished in time for the festival!”

As the two of them continued talking to each other, the two foals tried their best not to make eye contact with one another.  As Rumble trotted, he kept his focus on the road, trying not to let his wondering eyes look at the filly, even though his eyes kept trying to.  Meanwhile, Sweetie Belle kept her eyes on the ground as well, trying to get her thoughts together, especially the new-found feelings for Rumble.

It wasn’t long before they all reached the inn.  As Rarity and Thunderlane stopped their trotting, they were surprised to see that Rumble was still walking towards the door; it was like he didn’t even notice the others had stopped.

“Um, Rumble,” said Thunderlane.

“Hmm?” asked Rumble, finally stopping and turning to face him.  “Oh, uh, I’m gonna go inside.  Bye, Rarity. Belle.”

Sweetie Belle met his gaze for a split second, waving a hoof in response as the colt quickly turned his head away from her, closing his eyes as he walked through the door.  Watching him, Thunderlane let a small scoff escape his nostrils, shaking his head as a thought came across his mind.  However, he put it in the back of his head as he looked at Rarity again; he would deal with it after Rarity left.

“I’m sorry about that,” he said.  “I don’t know what’s gotten over him.”

“No, no, it’s quite alright,” she said as she ran a hoof in her mane.  “It’s me who should be sorry...for my behavior earlier, that is.”

Thunderlane tilted his head and raised an eyebrow.  “Why would you need to be sorry?”

She felt her cheeks beginning to flush.  “I was acting very...foolish, I suppose.  I’m not normally like that and I apologize for exposing you to my uncouth behavior.”

Uncouth?  He thought to himself as he said, “There’s no need to apologize.  I’m sure I’d act the same way if it were Rumble in that position.”

The two of them shared a laugh as Sweetie Belle remained silent, keeping her gaze on the ground.

“Besides,” Thunderlane said.  “I trust you enough to know what you’re doing.”

Immediately, Rarity stopped laughing as she stared at him, her mouth slightly hanging open.  Although her face didn’t show it, she was both surprised and mortified at his statement, making her heart race.

“W-What did you say?” she asked.

He shifted his eyes back and forth, as if he had said something he shouldn’t.  “I...I said that...I trust you.”

The words hit her again, echoing in her ears as she lowered her head, looking like she was about to cry.  In that split second, everything began rushing through her mind, making her ears droop in response.

Seeing this, Thunderlane trotted up to her and asked, “Are you okay?”

She looked up to him, her eyes locking onto his.  Tears began to pool, though she was able to prevent them from leaking.  Letting out a sigh and putting on a soft smile, she said, “I’m fine, darling.  I’m just...happy, that’s all.”

Before he could say anything, Rarity slowly reached a hoof around his neck and brought him into an embrace.  He returned the gesture, letting a small smile form as he lightly closed his eyes.  They stood there in each other’s arms; shorter than a blink, longer than an eternity.  All the while, Sweetie Belle remained unfazed as she only looked at the two of them for a second before looking away, focusing on her own thoughts.

Releasing their embrace, Thunderlane said, “Well, I guess I’ll see you around.”

“Yeah,” said Rarity, wiping an eye with a hoof.  “I suppose.”

He smiled and nodded his head as he said, “Bye, Rarity.”

“Goodbye, Thunderlane.”

As he trotted away, he let a sigh escape through his nostrils.  His eyes looked down at the ground as the question he wanted to ask her earlier entered his mind; this would have been the perfect time to ask.  As much as he wanted to turn and ask her, reason interfered, reminding him that she needed to take care of her sister first.  Looking ahead, he opened the door and turned his head to face Rarity one last time, smiling at her as he trotted into the building.

Rarity smiled in response, lightly waving a hoof at him as he entered the inn, the door closing behind him.  Then, she turned and began trotting back to the Boutique in silence.  Every now and then, she would shift her eyes towards Sweetie Belle without turning to fully look at her.  Then she would look in front of her, the tears from before beginning to well up again.

When the two of them reached the Boutique, Rarity brought Sweetie Belle up to her room and placed her in bed, instructing her to get some bed rest.  Then, she left the room, closed the door behind her and trotted down to the kitchen, sitting in one of the seats opposite the window that was above the table.

Looking out the window, she let out a small sigh as the events of the day began flashing through her mind again.  As she recollected her behavior and all the lies she’d been telling, she rested her head on the table as a saddened expression came across her face.

“Why am I doing this?” she asked herself in a hushed tone.  “Why have I stooped to such a low like this?”

As the questions went unanswered, she lightly closed her eyes.  It was only then that the tears she fought back began to stream down her cheeks, dripping on the table below.  She used a hoof to wipe the remnants off her cheeks as she sat up straight.  She sniffled as she looked out the window again.

“Cheer up, Rarity,” she said as she desperately tried to fight the tears, but to no avail.  “It’s all working out just fine.  There’s really no need to feel upset.  Besides, it’s not like I’m going to keep this façade up for long.  I just need to wait for the opportune moment, that’s all.”

She lowered her head again, the three simple words Thunderlane told her echoing in her ears again: I trust you.  Rarity closed her eyes again as the tears began to flow once again.

“I’m only fooling myself,” she said with a sniffle.  “It’s only a matter of time before he...he...”

She let her statement go unfinished as she wiped her eyes again.  “You’ve dug yourself so deep that it’ll be impossible to come out of this unscathed.  This wouldn’t even be happening if I wasn’t...”

She nearly jumped out of her fur as the sound of the bell above the front door echoed throughout the Boutique, stopping her midsentence.  Taking several breaths to calm her heart, she wiped her eyes as best as she could as she got up and trotted to greet the patron, brushing one of the curls of her mane back with a hoof.  However, when her eyes caught a glimpse of who it was standing there, an annoyed look on their face, she froze where she stood as her heart began to pound in her chest again.

All she could do was put a smile on her face and say, as calmly and collected as she could muster, “...H-Hi.”

Thunderlane trotted up the stairs with a determined look on his face.  When he opened the door to the room, he saw that Rumble was sitting at the table with a small piece of fruit in his hoof.  Prior to him entering, he could see that the colt looked like he had just seen a ghost.  When he entered the room, Rumble turned his head to him and smiled while chewing his food.

Closing the door behind him, Thunderlane trotted over to him, sat down and said, “Rumble, I think it’s time you and I had a talk.”

Swallowing what was in his mouth, Rumble asked in a worried tone, “What about?  Did I do something wrong?”

He shook his head.  “Of course not.”

Rumble tilted his head in confusion.  “Okay, then what?”

As the colt tried to calm his anxiety by taking another bite of his food, Thunderlane squinted his eyes teasingly, shot him a smile and said, “I know your secret.”

Immediately, Rumble froze, not even moving his mouth to chew his food.  His pupils shrank as he felt sweat beginning to form on the back of his neck.  Slowly, he swallowed what was in his mouth, an audible gulp emitting from his throat.

His eyes darting back and forth, he smiled and asked, “Secret?  What secret?  I don’t have a secret!”

The smile never left his face.  “I know all about your little crush on Sweetie Belle.”

“WHAT!?” Rumble shouted.  Seeing an eyebrow raise on Thunderlane’s face at his reaction, he quickly cupped his forehooves over his mouth, mentally cursing at himself for his outburst.  Slowly, he lowered his hooves from his mouth, feigned the best smile he could and asked, “What do you mean ‘crush’?”

“I’ve noticed the way you’ve been acting around her.” he said.  “You’ve fallen in love with her, haven’t you?”

Instantly, Rumble’s heart began to slam against his ribcage; he knew he’d been feeling strange and acting differently around Sweetie Belle, but the last thing he expected was that he had developed a crush on her.  Now that he knew what it was, he felt more afraid than ever before.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” he tried to explain.  “I don’t have a crush on her, honest!”

“Don’t try that with me, bro,” Thunderlane said.  “I know the signs all too well.”

“But it’s the truth!  I barely speak to her!  She’s just a friend, just like Apple Bloom and Scootaloo!”

“Who are you trying to convince, me or you?”

Rumble fell silent at the question, his eyes shifting back and forth as he fished his thoughts for an answer.

Thunderlane let out a small sigh as his expression turned from a teasing look to a reassuring one.  “I know I’m not Mom or Dad, but you don’t have to be ashamed to tell me.  I’m here to help you with this stuff, no matter what it is.  There’s nothing wrong with having a crush on somepony.  It’s completely normal, especially for a colt your age.”

With that statement, Rumble lowered his head as his ears drooped down.  He knew he was right, whether he wanted to accept it or not.  Letting out a small sigh, he asked, “How did you find out?”

“I started noticing it when we first moved here, especially after the welcoming party we attended,” he explained.  “Ever since you first told me about your friends, you’ve been acting very strange.  I thought it was just because you’ve been making friends here, but when I picked you up from Rarity’s a few days ago, I saw you acting the same way when I brought up Sweetie Belle.  It was pretty obvious you were falling head over hooves for her, and I don’t blame you; she is Rarity’s sister, so I wouldn’t be surprised if she grew up to be just as beautiful as her!”

Rumble lowered his head with a worried look on his face; if it was so obvious to Thunderlane, it must’ve been obvious to everypony else.

“Don’t worry,” he said in a reassuring tone.  “I won’t tell her, but I think it’s time we talked about this.”

Looking up to him, Rumble asked, “Why do we need to talk about it?  There’s nothing much to say.”

Thunderlane laughed.  “Of course there is.  It’s not every day you find a special somepony, you know.”

He got up and sat next to his brother.  “I know you’re nervous about this, but I’m your brother.  I’m here to help you.”

“Help me?” Rumble asked.  “Help me with what?”

“Well...,” the stallion said, rubbing the back of his neck with a hoof.  “For starters, telling Sweetie Belle how you feel about her and...”

“What?  No!” he shouted, cutting him off by jumping out of his seat.  “I can’t tell her!”

Can’t...or won’t?”

A moment of silence followed as Rumble looked to the ground.  Then, he turned his back on his brother, hanging his head in what looked like a defeated pose.

“I...,” he said, letting out a sigh.  “I don’t think she likes me the same way, so there’s no point in trying.”

“What makes you say that?” Thunderlane asked.

“I...I don’t know,” Rumble said.  “I guess it’s because she doesn’t even look at me.  It’s like she doesn’t even know I exist.  Something just tells me that it’s because she likes somepony else, or just doesn’t feel the same way about me.”

Thunderlane put a hoof around him in reassurance.  “Well, you won’t know until you ask.  Who knows, maybe she does feel the same way about you and is just too nervous to tell you, just like you!”

His heart started to speed up as he said, “But...I...I don’t know how.  Where do I start?  I can’t just walk up to her and say, ‘Hi, Sweetie Belle!  Guess what?  I have a crush on you!’  She’ll think I’m a total weirdo!”

“Well, if you say it like that, sure,” Thunderlane agreed.  “But there are other ways to let somepony know how you feel about them.”

Rumble looked up to him in response, a hopeful look on his face.

Taking the hint, he continued.  “Well, maybe you can start by hanging out with her as friends.  You know, just the two of you.”

The shrinkage in his pupils was all the answer Thunderlane needed.  If it wasn’t for the fact that he was trying to help, he would have face-hoofed himself.

“What I meant was just you and Sweetie Belle,” he replied.  “You know, without your other friends.”

Rumble began to turn pale.

That didn’t seem to help, Thunderlane thought as he rolled his eyes.  “Okay, maybe not just the two of you.  Perhaps I can go with you as a chaperone...or Rarity...or both even...”

He paused for only a moment as the thought entered his mind, swallowing a lump in his throat before continuing.  “The point is, you can start nice and slow...that is, if you really want to.”

Rumble looked at the ground for a moment as his color came back, as well as his breathing.  Thunderlane made a good point, he figured, but could he really tell Sweetie Belle about his new-found feelings for her?  If she did like him back, what would happen then?  If she didn’t like him the same way, could he accept rejection?  

“I...I don’t know...,” Rumble said as that thought entered his mind.  “What if she doesn’t like me at all?  What if she...rejects me?”

A look of sadness quickly flashed across the stallion’s face as he exhaled through his nostrils.  “If she does, then she does.  You’ll just have to move on and find somepony else, that’s all.  Sure, it’ll hurt...a LOT.  But it’s just something that happens.  If it does, you know I’ll be there to see you through it, no matter what.”

He put his arm around him again.  “But we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.  Just start it nice and slow at first before asking if she wants to be your special somepony.  Let her get to know you and see what a great pony you are.  Even if she doesn’t like you that way, the two of you can still be great friends, right?”

“I guess,” Rumble said.  “But how do I ask her when I can’t even look at her without acting differently?”

“What do you mean by, ‘acting differently’?”

He then proceeded to talk about how he acted whenever he was around her, like how he blankly stared at her, how his heart races and he begins to sweat, and how time seems to slow down except for the two of them.  All the while, Thunderlane couldn’t help but smile; could anypony blame him for finding his brother’s first love to be quite adorable?  However, upon hearing his brother’s feelings, an idea popped into his head, one that he was sure Rumble would agree with.

“I just don’t know what to do,” Rumble said, finishing his story.

Clearing his throat, Thunderlane said, “Well, if you ask me, I say you should try a nice, subtle approach, something that will tell her how you feel without telling her how you feel.”

Again, he looked up to him with a hopeful look.

“I have the perfect idea, but I’m going to need you to find out something for me first.”

“Okay, what?” he asked.

He told him his idea and what he needed to find out, brining an inquisitive look to colt’s face.

“Why do you need me to find that out?  I can just tell you right now.”

“I’m sure you could,” he said with a chuckle.  “But like you said, you barely know her.  Therefore, I need you find something a little more...personal.”

“Oh,” he said, his eyes looking at the ground while shifting back and forth.  “I see.”

Then, the stallion brought him into an embrace.  “Don’t worry about a thing.  I’ll help see you through all of this.”

“Thanks,” Rumble said softly.  “For everything.”

“No need to thank me,” he said.  “That’s what brothers are for.”

With that, Rumble got up and made his way to his room, closing the door behind him.  Then, he trotted over to his bed and lied on his back, staring at the ceiling and allowing all his thoughts to register in his mind.

Well, that wasn’t so bad, he thought.  Still, I can’t believe that I have a crush on Sweetie Belle.  I mean, I know she’s pretty and stuff, but I didn’t think that I was falling in love with her.

It was only in that moment that he realized something.  Wow!  Ever since this little talk, I don’t feel so scared thinking about her.  Maybe that’s a sign or something.  Who knows?  Maybe Thunderlane’s right.  Maybe she feels the same way about me.

Despite that thought, Rumble’s breathing still seemed a little shallow.  If only it could get rid of the fear completely.  Still, I should just focus on getting Thunderlane what he needs.  That shouldn’t be too hard to do, I guess.

He lightly closed his eyes as he let out a sigh.  Why is this happening to me?

I don’t know!  I just don’t know!

Sweetie Belle was sprawled out on her bed, staring at the ceiling with a worried expression on her face.  Ever since she left Sweet Apple Acres, she had been trying to get her thoughts together on her current situation.  Sadly, no matter which way she turned, no matter how hard she tried, all her thoughts kept leading back to one inexcusable and inescapable fact: she was falling in love with Rumble.

She covered her eyes with her hooves as she let out a soft groan as a serious case of déjà vu washed over her.  It felt like it was only yesterday that she was in the same position, looking at a bare ceiling while contemplating what to do with new-found feelings she had for somepony.

“What am I going to do?” she asked herself.  “What can I do?  Is this even possible?”

She rolled on her side.  “If that wasn’t bad enough, now Apple Bloom tells me she has a crush on him.  How am I going to break it to her that I’m...I’m...”

She didn’t even bother to finish her sentence as she got up and trotted over to her window.  She rested her forehead against the window, as she looked at the busy town going about their business, making sure her horn didn’t get in the way.

“Maybe Apple Bloom is wrong,” she said, her voice shaky.  “Maybe it’s not...what she said it is!  It’s probably just my friendship with him growing stronger or something, that’s all!”

Her ears drooped as realization struck.  “That’s exactly what I said when I first fell in love with Scootaloo!”

Sweetie Belle’s eyes lowered, focusing on the window sill.  “There has to be a way I can find an answer to all of this.  There has to be somepony I can talk to about this.”

Her eyes shifted back and forth for a few moments as she fished her mind for an answer.  After a while, she shrugged her shoulders and said, “I could always talk to Rarity.  After all, I had promised not to keep anymore secrets from her anymore.”

It was in that moment the images of how Rarity was acting in Apple Bloom’s bedroom began flashing through her mind, making her scratch the side of her head with a hoof.

“Come to think of it, Rarity has been acting a little bit differently lately,” she said.  “Funny, it seems to have happened right after Thunderlane and Rumble came to town.”

As the words left her mouth, her thoughts began rushing back to the latter, making her cheeks blush at the sight of his soft smile, his slicked-back mane, his lavender eyes, and the overall way he had been acting.  A small smile began forming as she envisioned him, a small sigh escaping through her nose.  Immediately, she was snapped out of her thoughts when her horn lightly tapped against the window.

Oh no, she thought as she emitted a gasp.  It was bad enough I felt this way whenever I looked into his eyes!  Now I’m starting to feel this way just by saying his name!  It’s my crush on Scootaloo all over again!

“UGH!” she said, lying on her stomach in the middle of the room.  “Why is this happening to me?  This should be happening to Apple Bloom, she’s the one with the crush on him!”

She let out a sigh as she rested her head against the floor.  “This is all my fault.  Scootaloo said that letting him joining us would be a bad idea.  If I had listened to her, none of this would be happening right now.”

The feeling of guilt didn’t last long; she had a bigger predicament to worry about at the moment.  Sweetie’s eyes scanned the ground as she tried to think of an answer.  As seconds became minutes, thoughts began forming in Sweetie Belle’s mind, causing her eyebrows to furrow as a determined look began forming on her face.  After several minutes passed, she stood up straight and let out a huff of confidence.

“I know exactly what I’m going to do,” she said.  “I’m not going to think about him anymore!  I love Scootaloo and that’s final!  If I’m going to think about him at all, it’ll be to help Apple Bloom and nothing else!”

She began pacing the floor. “Okay, it’s going to be hard to not think about him, since he’s a Crusader and in our class.  It’s not like I can just ignore him or anything.  There’s got to be a way to stop thinking about this, there’s just got to be!”

After another moment of silent thinking, she said to herself, “It looks like there’s only one thing to do, and that’s to prove to myself that I don’t have a crush on him.  Hmm...but how?”

She tapped a hoof on her chin as she began recollecting how she dealt with the situation the last time.  However, it was only in her remembrance that she let out another audible gasp.

“No!” she practically shouted.  “No way!  There has to be another way, anything but...that!”

Even more silence followed before another idea popped into her head, making her shout in excitement, “That’s it!  It’s the perfect way to prove that I don’t have a crush on Ru-, I mean, him!”

A confident smile on her face, Sweetie Belle trotted back to her bed and lied down while putting her forehooves behind her head in a lounging position.  Lightly closing her eyes, she said, “Everything is going to be just fine.  It’s like Scootaloo said yesterday, we love each other and nothing is going to change that!”

As the words left her mouth, she opened her eyes as a small wave of doubt crossed her mind.  Turning on her side, she took one of her extra pillows in her arms, hugged it tightly and said in a very soft tone, “...I hope.”

A little something I decided to draw up for kicks.  Decided to add flowers into the pic to give it more life, but they do look a little out of place.
Still looking for ways to improve my art work, so bare with me on this, mates!
