9. Telling The Truth
Rarity pulled Spike away from the door and hung her head in shame. Spike said lovingly "what's wrong Rarity?" Rarity sighed and said under her breath "I'm what's wrong". Spike said with wonder "why do you say that Rarity... Theres nothing wrong with you to me". Rarity sighed and took a deep breath as she said "Spike, theres something I really need to be truthful about". Spike said nervously "yeah..." Rarity looked at the ground the whole time she explained herself. "Well Spike... The truth is, your worst fear..." Spike said with worry "what about it?" Rarity sighed again and said "well, I heard you speaking to me..." Spike said with relief "and? I know you wouldn't really do that to me, Rarity's generosity and all!" Rarity said sadly "but I was going to do that to you, apart from the not being your friend anymore part". Spike looked shocked at Rarity as he said "what? You were going to use me?" Rarity teared up as she said "I'm so sorry Spike, but I didn't really love you, and I was going to take you on one date, break it down to you that I didn't love you, and then hope there was no hard feelings, and that is the honest truth as Applejack would say..." Spike said while looking rather hurt "I can't believe you would have done that to me..." Rarity said through her tears "I know, I couldn't believe it either, but I just wanted that jewel so bad..." Spike said seriously "I kind of knew you were going to do that anyway..." Rarity said "you did?" Spike just nodded and remained silent for a moment before saying "I just thought after accompanying you, that you may see who I really am, and maybe love me back one day..." Rarity said with a sweet smile "well Spike, I have something even more important to admit to you". Spike said sadly "what?" Rarity said romantically "you see Spike, you probably won't believe me now, but I swear I am telling the truth when I say that the moment I felt you kiss me to save my life I..." Rarity paused as Spike said eagerly "go on". Rarity said while trying not to blush "well you see Spike... I am beginning to fall in love with you also". Spike shouted with excitement "you are?!" Rarity nodded as she said "my worst fear made me realize that..." Rarity bowed her head in shame as she said "I will understand if you don't believe me ever again, and I will also understand if you hate me now, and I will understand even more if you don't wanna help me get the jewel anymore". Spike said with a reassuring smile "But I do believe you Rarity, I'm glad you had the confidence to tell me the truth eventually, and I will always love you, and wanna be your friend, and I still want to help you find that jewel!" Rarity said cheerfully "you do?! You really, really do?!" Spike just nodded his head and smiled as he held his arms out to her and said "come here you". With that Rarity embraced Spike in a loving hug that was to bond them forever.
