Inspiration has struck.Marble soon though
"You know I am still quite surprised you came to me about this sort of thing. I completely understand why you would, just that you did.">"Heh. You're just about the best person to come to."
"Of course I am darling", she purred delightedly, "Perhaps I may be wrong, but I had always had the assertion that this wasn't exactly your cup of tea, as it were.">Applejack blushed.>"Well it ain't. Jus' the fall shindig 'n' all in a couple days has got me thinkin' I should dress up a bit...">Rarity peered over her red, wing-like glasses thoughtfully.
"Pardon my saying, but you didn't go through this sort of effort last year.">Applejack tried to raise her hand to fix her non-existent hat but Rarity kept it still with a raised eyebrow.>"Sorry", Applejack muttered.
"Applejack you know you can tell me anything right? There need be no secrets between us.">Rarity rested her hand on the measuring tape wrapped around Applejack's firm stomach.>Her soft, warm hands pressed lightly to Applejack's smooth skin.>"Ain't no secret. Jus' a bit flustered."
"Applejack..." Rarity began slowly, a smirk developing on her face, "You... Have a date!~">Rarity jabbed her in her stomach as Applejack's face grew red.>"Nuh-uh! She ain't my date!"
"Sheee?~ Oh Applejack, you saucy girl! Whoever is it? Do I know her?">"Nobody! Jus' forget it and get back to it!">Rarity giggled behind her hand.
"Not until you tell me just a ~little, teensy, weensy~ thing about your secret Belle of the Ball. Pleeaase?">"If you'll stop mentionin' it", Applejack retorted drily.
"I swear on my grace as a lady.">"For what that's worth..." She muttered.
"What was that?!">"Nothin!"
"Just as I thought. Now. Tell me.">Applejack smartly kept her mouth shut of any more snide comments, especially when Rarity jabbed her painfully in the ribs with her slender finger.
