"Whatdya mean Flutters?">Fluttershy's innocent smile didn't falter as she answered.
"Like I said, this isn't a party. I wouldn't have invited you if it was.">Pinkie's brow furrowed, her forehead creased.
"Fluttershy I thought we were friends-">Fluttershy's cruel laughter in the darkened space of the closet sent a chilly lance up Pinkie's spine.
"Friends? Let me tell you something Pinkie. No one in this school is your friend.">She shook her head in mirth.
"But that's what you get for being annoying.">Pinkie unconsciously backed away from her oddly behaving friend, finally resting against the back corner of the closet.>Fluttershy was looming over her, her hands on her hips and an innocent smile on her face.
"It looks like you still don't believe me. Tell me Pinkie, when's the last time you've been invited to a party?">Pinkie's mouth shot open to answer.>Within a moment- a deathly still, quiet moment- her jaw clicked shut.
"Like I said, everyone in this school finds you annoying. They just use you for your parties, Pinkie. Who'd like an annoying, useless, idiot like you?">Pinkie's vision was clouded by tears, a choked sob leaped from her throat before she could contain it.>A pit of ice was forming in her stomach that slowly spread up her chest to fill her being.>Was it true?>Did no one... Did no one like her at all?
"F-fluttershy...">Pinkie hated the way her voice cracked, the way her hair fell flat around her face>The way Fluttershy was completely destroying her.
"Don't worry Pinkie.">Fluttershy's cooing voice was whispered in her ear as the caretaker bent down.
"I'll be your friend again...">Pinkie crossed her arms around her knees and buried her head in them to stifle her quiet sniffles.>Fluttershy was only a little annoyed at being ignored.>It wouldn't matter, soon.>Fluttershy gently extracted Pinkie's head from her knees, cradling her chin in her hand.
"There there... I still like you Pinkie..."
