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?


17. The Shadowed Ghost Of Sombra

All was still for a moment. The dead silence seemed eerie and unnatural, until a deep rumbling laugh cut into the silence like a sharp knife. Spike began to stir from his unconscious slumber, quickly realizing how much danger he and Rarity were now in. For hidden within the misty clouds now shrouding the entire room in darkness, was the large prominent shadow of a pony. King Sombra. King Sombra laughed coldly once again before bellowing in a rough voice like thunder "foolish ponies, riddled with greed, curiosity taking over their mindless souls!" Spike looked on in horror, so terrified that his mouth hung open in shock, stiffened to the spot, unable to move, and unable to scream. He tried to say something, but the words wouldn't come out. He tried to move, but his feet were glued to the ground in fear. King Sombra looked away from Spike down at Rarity led on the floor, as silent as death. King Sombra said darkly "such a pretty thing, it's a shame she had to die, but it was for a good cause!" Spike still tensed up with fear managed to look across the room at Rarity led lifelessly. In that moment Spike felt many emotions. Anger, pain, grief, regret, but mostly heartbreak. His body loosened up as he finally managed to regain his words and full control of his body once again. "RARITY!" Spike cried out in shock, as he ran to be by her side. He fell down to his knees, and held her hoof, beginning to tear up as he looked at her face. She led so innocently, it was hard for Spike to believe she was really dead. Spike cried with grief "no Rarity... Please... You can't be dead... You can't... You just can't!" With that he closed his eyes and said in a faint whisper of sadness "I love you..." He collapsed into her soft fur, and began to sob hysterically. Life wasn't worth living without the one you love. Spike sobbed into Rarity's fur for an eternity it seemed. Time stood still around him, as his heart fell to pieces in that depressing moment. King Sombra said sickly with no sympathy "so she's dead... So what?! You will be soon enough!" Spike lifted himself up to his feet trembling. He clenched his fists as anger began to take over. He said while looking down at Rarity still led in an eternal sleep "you did this... You killed her... You killed the only thing I love... Now I shall KILL YOU!" With that Spike turned quickly with rage, and blew green flames towards King Sombra, his anger now taking over his empty soul. King Sombra remained still and calm, the flames lapping around him like gentle waves. As soon as Spike realized that wasn't making a difference he stopped and stood staring at King Sombra, wide-eyed with rage. He was about to run at King Sombra using nothing but his bare hands as weapons, when a familiar voice said faintly "spikey wikey...?" Spike stopped in his tracks, frozen in disbelief. He turned to see Rarity moving slightly, starting to raise her head up to look at him slowly. Spike lost for words just stared at her, not believing what he could see before him. Spike said slowly as he managed to find his words "Rarity? Is it really you?" Rarity said softly with a calming smile "yes Spike... I'm okay". Before Spike and Rarity could have a heart warming reunion, King Sombra butted in "ooo... What's this? She's not really dead? Such a shame, I'll have to kill her myself now!" Spike turned to King Sombra, and stood in his way as he slowly edged threateningly forward. "You will not touch her! I won't let you!" As King Sombra continued to make his way closer, Spike pressed up against Rarity, determined to keep her safe. King Sombra was now inches away from Spikes face, his glowing green eyes striking fear into their hearts. As his horn began to glow with powerful magic, Spike used himself as a living shield, ready to take the spell in order to save his Rarity...
