>Rainbow was like a machine with a spatula, every flip and turn seemed almost acrobatic in nature.
>Pinkamena was mesmerized as the stack of pancakes grew.
>Her gaze traveled up the length of Rainbow's bare arm, then to the flexing, tight muscle bending under soft, sun-kissed skin.
>Pinkamena felt her cheeks heat as Rainbows' lean arms flicked back and forth over the pan.
>Rainbow seemed oblivious to her staring, especially by the way she stretched and twisted, her muscles coiling under her taught skin.
>Pinkamena caught the gentle hum that reverberated in the kitchen that matched well with Rainbow's graceful steps.
>She let her gaze trail down, to Rainbow's firm backside, then lower to the well-sculpted calves flexing in the dim light.
>Pinkamena almost fell from the stool she was sitting on at Applejack's interruption.
>"Morning AJ. Sleep well?"
>"Bought as well as I can, I'd reckon. Them pancakes ready?"
>Rainbow pointed to a cupboard, and Applejack was quick to retrieve a plate and serve herself a small stack.
>Pancakes were piled high, then a veritable river of syrup and butter was heaped on top.
>Applejack sat across from Pinkamena on another stool.
>"Mornin' Pinkamena. Sleep well? It's awful early."
"Y-yes, I suppose so. Are you an early riser?"
>"I'm a farm girl. Always gotta get up 'fore the roosters."
>Applejack fell silent as she tore into the mound of butter, syrup, and fluffy, warm cakes.
>"Aren't you hungry Pinkamena?"
>Pinkamena looked back over to Rainbow Dash, who was glancing at her from over her shoulder.
"Oh, n-not really. I'm not... Used to eating, really. Sorry."
>"No problem. Hey AJ after you're done stuffing your face you wanna wake the others up?"
>"Ain't no need to be rude, RD. Gimme a sec."
>AJ took a large bite, just out of spite.
>Rainbow shot her a look.
"I'll do it."
>"Thanks, Pinkamena. Hurry please? You know how Rarity gets when she doesn't eat breakfast in the mornings..."
