“Geez, I can’t wait to get there,” Rainbow Dash said, leading Applejack, Rarity, and Twilight toward the place she’d chosen for their double date. “I’m starving!” She looked back to her marefriend and two friends. “How are you girls doing?”
“I’m plenty hungry, hun” Applejack said, offering her marefriend a smile. “Where are ya’ taking us again?”
“It’s supposed to be a surprise!” Rainbow exclaimed, sticking her tongue out. “I’m totally going to blow last week’s place out of the water.”
“I thought I picked a nice place,” Twilight murmured, a little offended. Just because they didn’t serve milkshakes didn’t mean it ‘sucked’. She glanced at her own partner and was surprised to find Rarity looking very serious. “Rarity? What’s wrong?”
“I have some concerns over where Rainbow is taking us,” Rarity whispered, her eyes glued to Rainbow. “Rainbow, darling,” she called out. “Are you quite sure we’re going the right way?”
“Yep!” Rainbow called back. “We should be there in, like, a minute! Best place in town for dates, promise!”
Rarity grimaced. “Hrm.”
Twilight couldn’t help but giggle. “Oh, come on, Rares. I’m sure it’ll be fine.”
Rarity didn’t seem convinced, pursing her lips. “You say that, sweetest, but I’ve been here before because of Sweetie and her friends, so unless they built it in one week, there is only one restaurant coming up and it is far from the ideal date place.”
“What is it?”
Before Rarity could answer, however, said restaurant finally appeared on the horizon, much to her gasp, Rarity’s groan, and Applejack’s cleared throat.
There it loomed before them, Ponyville’s premiere fast food joint if you want to feel really bad about what you ate, its taunting golden arches as yellow as the oil with which they fried all their food.
“Look at this place!” Rainbow exclaimed, so excited she flew up into the air. “It even has a playground! Dibs on the big slide!”
The three mares watched Rainbow zoom off, after which Rarity politely said, “Everypony in favor of never letting Rainbow pick a restaurant again?”
“Aye,” two voices replied. Immediately.
