Half-way out of Ponyville. Soarin would go to Canterlot to visit his old captain then back to Cloudsdale to begin a new stunt routine. He just couldn't see Rainbow right now. He had lied to her, even if it was indirectly, he didn't want a relationship based on lies. He must have been so shaken at this moment, because his mind was playing a scene where Rainbow was chasing him down, he could hear her rough squeaky voice getting closer and closer, he hoped he prayed to Celestia it could be real, and to his surprise he was hit in the flank right into a cloud. He groaned as he pulled himself out, and beside him was the single most beautiful thing his eyes ever saw. A thin, sleek mare with wings that could slice through sound and light at once, the mulit-colored hue of her mane glisened in the afternoon sun, her magenta eyes indicated rage, but salty streams poured down them. She wasn't angry with him. Just hurt. Her pupils were dialated. Snarled lips that was being bared to him were slowly forming into a straight line, which then slowly puckered. And true to her nature she leaped at the stallion and embraced while simultaneously locking her lips with his. Their brief conversation lasted in no words, but at a level only pegasi can communicate on, it was much like the language of the birds, but again only understood by Pegasi. It was loud at some points, so loud that a wandering Sonic heard them, and listened to what at first sounded like singing, but wouldn't ya know it. That device that was implanted in his brain granted him acess to what the couple was talking about. Many blushes rose to the peach cheeks of the Blue Blur. He then ran off to tell his own woman sweet-nothings.
"Rainbow?" Soarin addressed curled up with his favorite pony.
"Yeah?" Rainbow answered.
"Would you like to join the Wonderbolts?"
Rainbow's head perked in excitement, but immediately drooped."I can't. I dropped out of Flight School."
"So?" The male pegasus said rather smugly."Neither did I."
Rainbow gasped in total surprise. "So I ask again. Wanna join?"
"Yes!" Rainbow squeed."And there's something I wanna ask you."
"Since I'm not with Shadow anymore, do you wanna.....be....." She spoke the rest in the pegasus language.
Soarin blushed, but nodded, the two lover stood hoof-in-hoof and flew off together to Cloudsdale to fulfill something long overdue.
The big day was here. The second wedding of the Equestrian century. The bond between Sonic the Hedgehog and Sally Acorn.
"No, Sonic! Get out of here! Get to the alter!" Luna commanded the stubborn hedgehog straining not to use the Royal Canterlot Voice.
"Come ON Luna! I just gotta see her!" Sonic whinned.
"No. Hey why don't you bother Tia?" Luna suggeseted. Anything to make him go away.
"I already did! She told me to bother you!" Suddenly a magic bubble appeared around the poor hedgehog, and he disappeared. Leaving Twilight there in his place. Luna said a thank you under breath."Hello Twilight. How are things going?"
Twilight swalloed some pain and spoke."The portal won't stay up long, and it's time."
Luna nodded, and opened the doors, pigeons flew from behind the door, and out stepped Sally. Dressed in a very simple wedding dress, with a distraught Rarity behind her. "Why Rarity! That dress is so simple. So practical." Twilight teased.
"So me. Thank you Rarity." Sally chuckled as she hugged the seamstress."You're quite welcome, darling." She said returning the hug wanting desperately to make it better.
Everypony and everybody was in place. Shadow was sitting on Sonic's side of the family rows, why he could never say, but he did get a rather welcome surprise as Soarin and Rainbow Dash floated in next to him, both with a ring at their tails."I take it you two are going to get along just fine."
"yeah, of course, but he does wrong, Shadow. Don't hesitate to kill him." Rainbow joked. Soarin laughed nervously."But seriously, thanks Shadow. This wouldn't have been possible without you." Shadow waved the thanks off."No, I'm the one who should be thankful. You finally got this girl off me."
The trio laughed and turned to the princess presiding over the ceremony.
