"Of course I can." Scootaloo rubbed her eyes. <br> "A retard is a cruel name for somepony with a disability." <br> "Oh. What disability do you have?" <br> "My wings can't hold the weight of my body and I can't fly an inch above the ground and anybody could fly better than me!" She wailed, breaking into sobs. Tears streamed down her face. <br> "Oh, Scoot. I didn't know." I wrapped my wings around her and sighed. "I feel sorry for you." <br> "You don't have to." Just then, a counselor yelled for us to get on the start line. Me and her lined up next to each other. We both gulped nervously. <br> "GO!" All the other fillies took off like rockets. We started taking off slowly and uncertainly. I wobbled dangerously. Scootaloo started falling straight onto the safety pads and I caught her. But, adding her weight, we started falling. I panicked and started flapping my wings furiously until we landed on a soft cloud. "Keep going!" A voice yelled. A hot air balloon was flying straight up very bumpily. The driver was a white unicorn filly with a pink and purple mane. "You can do it Scootaloo!" <br> "Ready, Hazy Dream?" I nodded. We started flapping together vigorously, me still holding her. It was like real flying, it was fast and smooth. When we finished, we realized we were in last place. Diamond Tiara smirked. "I guess there isn't anything worse than an orphaned, retarded blank-flank who got last place." Scootaloo tried to look unhurt, but I could tell she was crying. The filly in the hot air balloon was wailing, crying a waterfall. Soon, I felt a sharp jab in my flank. I looked over to see Diamond Tiara poking me with her horn. She whispered, "You're hanging out with this retard? Loser! Blank-flank!" I started to defend the two fillies next to me, but soon I burst into tears.
