Startled by the nevousness in Fluttershys voice, Rarity backed away."Are you alright, darling? You seem a bit, um, stressed." Fluttershy sighed."No! Not really. Dont tell anypony else but... this morning i bumped into Mac. I asked him if i could buy some apples, but he saud i can have them for free. But when we went to go pick them, we got lost on the new part of their property. After we got out he told me he, uh, liked me alot. But im afraid Applejack will be mad if she knows i like him, like like him, i should say, and that our friendship would be, um, not as good. But its Hearts and Hooves day, we're at a dance, and hes here. But so is AJ. And i dont want her to get mad at me, but i really wish we could get together, but i dont want to risk our friendship! What do i do?!" Rarity facehoofed."Dont worry! As long as you or Mac dont forget Applejack or leave the farm or something, your fine. Its like with me and Spike. I was worried Twi would be mad. But she wasnt." Fluttershy thought a little."I guess so. But im too shy. If only i had the courage..." just then a voice came from behind her."Uh, Fluttershy, do you want to dance with me?" It was Big Mac! Fluttershy turned around to face him."Yes!" Meanwhile, Applejacks feats only grew as she watched the two ponies dance. It was true! She was right, though AJ wished she wasnt. The others thought thet were such a cute couple, but didnt even think about what Applejack was feeling at the moment. AJ didnt feel so good. Her stomach was in a knot as she went upstairs, unoticed by the other ponies.
