Quickfic - Ponies Kissing (4/?)
At the door of the library, his nerve almost failed him. However, he could almost feel his butt symbol staring at him, judging him for losing his cool.
He knocked on the door.
Her dragon assistant answered. "Wha...? Library's closed, mister."
"I'm sorry for being out so late," began Caramel, "But I need to speak with Ms. Sparkle."
The little dragon's eyes bulged, and he failed to hide a sly grin. "I'll go get 'Miz Sparkle.'"
Caramel lowered his head as the door closed. This was a mistake. He knew it.
The wait seemed like a thousand years.
He thought he heard laughter, but it cut off before he could be certain. Then, the door opened.
There she stood, her big violet eyes glistening in the moonlight. "Caramel. Good evening. This is a surprise."
"Ms. Sparkle, I-"
"Call me Twilight, we've already been on one date. So, are you here to ask me something?" She stood there expectantly, like the book said.
"No, Twilight. I made a mistake, and I'm here to rectify it." Starting with the event he had asked her to attend in the letter, he explained the series of events that had led him to her door. "So you see, what I wrote is out there for somepony to find, and I have no idea who will read it first. I'm sorry. Will you forgive me?"
Twilight Sparkle had gone from expectant to confused, to intrigued. Now, she was silent.
"Please?!?" he cried, his resolve breaking at last.
She nodded. "I forgive you, and I appreciate your honesty. Come in, I'll try to use a location trace spell to track where it went after you and it parted ways."
