    In the Orchard 11

    AJ paced around upstairs."This cant be happinin! Fluttershy and my brother? Next thing ya know, he's moved out to Las Pegasus and im Auntie Applejack. But he wouldnt do that, would he? I mean, he's a dependable pony, but what if Fluttershy moved in? Sge would take her animaks with her! Oh, no! What if-" then a voice came from the top of the stairs."Applejack? Are you talking to yourself?" It was Rainbow Dash! "Did you have too much cider?" Pinkie Pie! AJ blushed. "Um, to be honest, i am talkin to myself." Rainbow started laughing. "About what? Apples?" Applejack started getting frustrated. "No! I was talkin about- nevermind, its none of your buissness." Pinkie frowned. "Tell us! We promise not to tell anypony! Right, Dashie?" Rainbow smirked. "Right. Now tell us!" Applejack sighed. "Well, im afraid that, if Fluttershy and my brother are together, Mac will move and forget me and the rest of the family." Rainbow rolled her eyes. "Like he'd do that! Everypony knows he's, like, second most loyal pony." Pinkie nodded. "And he loves the Apple family! Now c'mon AJ! Are you ready to party?!" Applejack smiled. "I guess your right." Meanwhile... Fluttershy and Mac chatted by the snack table. They had gotton tired from dancing, and decided to have a drink. Then Pinkie, Rainbow, and Applejack came down. There was a bang as Pinkie pulled out and fired her party canon in one swift motion. Suddenly the walls of the library were decorated with pink and red hearts, and the snack table had better food and drinks. "Now THIS is a PARTY!" shouted Pinkie as she started dancing. Fluttershy had been startled by the noise and had leaped under the table. Mac helped her out. It was sunset by now, which probably meant Twilight would shut down the party soon, since she needed to study. "One last dance?" Mac asked, holding out his hoof. "I'd love too." Fluttershy replied, taking his hoof in hers.
