chapter 3: Let It Go

I was to return to school today, with my friends for the first time in months. I knew that I would always be like this for the rest of my life but I knew that i would be happy. That changed at Lunch.

When I returned, everyone still ignored me, still thought I was a she-demon.

"Oh look." whispered one girl, as Soarin, Flash and us girls came into lunch. "The she-demon's back."

"Why can't you go back where you belong?" shouted a boy. "Back in the pit where you were born!"

I hung my head in shame. "It's okay," said Rainbow Dash, putting my arm around me.

Then, I guess. It got worse. Students started to throw food at me. And that's when I decided I had enough.

I wheeled out of the Cafeteria, my red-gold curtain of hair hiding the tears streaming down my face. Flash stood up. "I'm going to find Sunset." he said.

Flash found me on the roof of the school, huddled against it. "Hey," he said gently.

I turned. "Oh, hi, Flash." I said dully.

"What's up?" he asked.

"I- I couldn't face another one. It's like the fall formal again."

"The Formal was in the past," said Flash. "Let it go. You're free."

"I''m free!" I sang

"Let it go, let it go..."

"I'm one with the wind and sky," I whispered.

"And they'll never see you cry," finished Flash.

"Here I'll stand..." I sang

"In the light of day!" finished Flash

Flash embraced me in his arms. "Sunset. Have you ever seen the Greatest Showman?"

"What?" I asked. "What's that?"

"It's a film," replied Flash. "I love it."

Flash leaned closer to me and kissed me on the lips. I didn't know what else to do, apart from kissing him back.

"Sunset, what do ya say? We've been friends for a while. What about we become an official item?"

"I'm scared," I said. "I don't want to hurt you."

"You won't," said Flash. "Trust me. So, what about we go on a date to Equestria Land at some point?"

"Okay," I said. "That's alright with me."
