A Real Rarity

When Rarity overhears Princess Celestia and Princess Luna talking about a rare jewel within the Crystal Empire, she just had to get her hooves on it. But she knew it wouldn't be easy, considering the only jewel of it's kind was deep in the Crystal Palace, protected by King Sombras curses. Rarity just knew he number one baby dragon Spike would have to come along and assist her. But even if they do survive the booby traps and curses, will they get past the ghostly shadow of a pony that guards the jewel itself?


18. Sombra's Defeat

As King Sombra was about to blast Spike down with a curse, a magical white blast knocked him away, as he smashed hard into a wall. Spike and Rarity looked the direction the spark of magic had emanated from, to see the Princesses all stood together, rage on their faces. Celestia who had casted the spell to save Spike and Rarity now said crossly "you two shouldn't have come here! You should never have listened in on our private conversation! That was foolish, and you could have got yourselves killed! I'll deal with you both later!" Twilight Sparkle shook her head looking very disappointed at her friend and her faithful assistant. Spike and Rarity hung their heads in shame, feeling really guilty now. Celestia went to approach King Sombra, still led upon the ground. But Luna put her hoof up to stop her and said under her breath "let me handle this sister... Please..." Celestia nodded understandingly, and let her sister go. Princess Luna approached King Sombra slowly, careful not to let down her guard. She thought to herself 'he is just as magnificent as I remember him'. She shook that thought furiously from her head as she cleared her throat and said boldly, now stood before him "Sombra..." King Sombra looked up in disbelief "Luna... Is it really you?" Luna looked down at him, almost seeing a softer side within those dark green eyes. Luna just nodded and remained silent. King Sombra said with feeling "my little Nightmare". Luna's heart fluttered at his words, but she sighed as she said lovingly "my King..." She lifted King Sombra to his feet, as she continued to frown. King Sombra said seriously "what is it?" Luna said importantly "you have to go, you know that don't you..." King Sombra said crossly "I've waited this long to come back, and now I can be with you again. I'm not going anywhere!" Luna said sadly "you can't stay! I don't want you to stay! I don't wanna see the one I love corrupted and enslave an entire Empire all over again!" King Sombra said angrily "but it is what I was born to do!" Luna said crossly back at him "you choose the life you live, and you don't belong in this world! You are dead, eventually the power Rarity gave you will wither and die, then you will be no more!" Luna said the last bit painfully as she said slowly "you know this... Don't make my world suffer, go back where you belong..." King Sombra sighed and said slowly in defeat "your right... All I wanna do would make you suffer, I don't want that. I lived my dream once, I don't wanna live it again if it means destroying yours..." Luna said softly "but my dream was to spend my life with you..." King Sombra said after a long pause "but you can't..." Luna said lovingly "I could come with you". King Sombra said sharply "no!" Luna said defiantly "why not?! It's my choice! Not yours!" King Sombra said slowly "because I don't want you to die for me... I want you to live on with your friends and family, Equestria needs a strong independent Princess like you... I loved you once, and always will... You must move on, only then will I be happy..." Luna began to tear up "please... Let me come with you... There has to be another way... I don't wanna lose you again... I still love you..." King Sombra smiled and said slowly "and I still love you..." With that he began to fade away, while still smiling. Luna tried to hold onto him crying hysterically "no, SOMBRA! Please! Don't leave me again!" As soon as King Sombra had faded away completely, Luna collapsed to the floor full of grief. Celestia rushed over to comfort her sister who was now crying uncontrollably. Cadence and Twilight hugged, also tearing up from the sadness before them. Rarity and Spike watched on slightly shocked by all they had seen and heard. After a few moments of grieving had passed, Luna wiped away her tears, took a deep breath, and put on a brave face. She said aloud to herself "Sombra wouldn't want me to be sad, he'd want me to be happy..." Twilight went up to Rarity and Spike, hugging them both saying still tearful "I'm so relieved your both okay!" Rarity said with wonder "thank goodness you all came, but how did you all know where me and Spike would be?" Twilight said aloud to everybody "you two must have walked out before the discussion had ended..." Cadence then spoke up too. "We all planned on coming here at Midnight to find the Jewel in order to destroy it, before anypony stumbled upon it like you did..." Celestia said seriously "looks like you two learnt a very important lesson today... I'd like to hear about it in a letter..." She sounded stern, but reframed from telling them both off, seeing they had been through enough horror to teach them both a lesson for one day... Celestia said importantly "come now, let's all get out of here... The Crystal Eye can be used no more, it's power was used up by Rarity..." As they all began to leave, Celestia turned back to Luna, still stood staring into space. She said softly "Luna... Come now, we need to go..." Luna said slowly "just give me a moment, I'll catch up with you..." Celestia nodded respectfully, and then left after the others. As soon as Luna was alone, she approached the Crystal Eye slowly, and said softly with tears forming beneath her eyes once again "oh Sombra... I hate to say goodbye, so I'll just leave you with these final words... I will always love you..." With that she then gently planted a kiss on the Crystal Eye, touched it one last time, then went to walk away. She looked round one more time, before leaving the room, a wall closing down behind her, sealing the Crystal Eye in once again...
