TW: sexual assault
I never meant to hurt the poor thing, it just happened. There I was, at the Grand Galloping Gala, minding my own business, when all of the sudden a beauty caught my eye. She was gorgeous with her flowing pink mane and turquoise eyes, her wings so neatly tucked into her body. I had to have her.
“Of course.”, she replied, almost to quiet to hear. Oh, she was perfect!
As we danced, I led her to the garden, the perfect setting. We chatted as we went, she talked about her animals and I told her about my studies in Canterlot. We came to the center of the hedge maze, where we wouldn’t be disturbed. I picked her up and set her on a stone bench with my magic.
“You’re such a gentleman, Strong Winter.”, she smiled at me.
“A lady deserves a gentleman.”, I replied, flashing a toothy grin.
She blushed and hid behind her mane. I leaned in to kiss her, but she turned her head and pushed me away.
“I really don’t want to rush into things.”
“Come on, what’s the hold up? We’re just gonna have a little fun.”, I moved in and pushed her down. It was gonna happen, whether she liked it or not.
“No, please don’t! I’ll do anything!”
“Sorry, there’s only one thing I want right now.”
“Please.”, she whispered with tears in her eyes, but I knew she’d already given in.
I enveloped her dress with my magic and prepared to rip it off.
“Hey, want some help with that?”
“No I don’t want help! Move along, she’s mine!”
“Alright. Your loss.”
A hoof grabbed my shoulder and spun me around. I opened my mouth to protest until I realized my jaw was nearly inverted from a hoof to the face. Good news: I didn’t feel the pain soon afterward. Bad news: it was because my nether regions were on fire, literally. I quickly put it out, but the damage was done.
The pony threw down a lighter and grabbed my coat.
“If you ever try to touch her again, I’ll bucking destroy you, and if you don’t get out of here right now, I’ll call the Royal Guard.”, the rough voice growled.
Unable to talk, I nodded and ran away as fast as I could, wincing with each step.
“Are you alright? Well, that’s a stupid question. Did he-“
“N-no. I’m fine for now.”
A hoof reached out, and then pulled back as if thinking better of it.
“Sorry. I wanna hug you, but I guess you don’t wanna be touched.”
“N-no, it’s alright. I don’t want to be alone right now.”
Fluttershy suddenly grabbed Rainbow Dash tightly around the neck, head buried into her fur, tears darkening the blue. The other pegasus’ eyes widened at the show of affection. She entwined her hoof in the pink mane, brushing her head lightly.
“I’ll never let you out of my sight again.”
“I’m okay with that.”
That Strong Winter guy was super creepy! I like how even the narration at the beginning, before he had actually done anything, was unnerving on its own, foreshadowing what was coming. And I was glad to see Dash come in and deal with him so thoroughly. Nice work!
