Rainbow dash was still sleeping peacefully when suddenly she was gently woken up.
"Dashie, wake up, we're here" Twilight said quitely.
"Huh? What?" the colorful Pegasus groaned, barelly awake.
"We arrived at UK" Twilight said, still speaking softly to her sleepy friend.
"Oh.. Right" Rainbow said, remembering why he and Twilight were in the hot air balloon, and so the cyan Pegasus stretched as she began getting up from her lovely nap.
"Come on now, Rainbow Dash, let's hurry" Twilight said, jumping out of the large pink balloon basket.
"Coming, coming" the Pegasus groaned. But unfortantly wasn't watching fully were she was going and she tripped on nothing particaler, and still got out of the basket, but in a less pleasent way than Twilight's.
"You okay!?" Twilight worried cried, after seeing her friend take a rather nasty fall like that.
Rainbow didn't respond, as her eyes rolled around and stars were over her head for a brief moment, but than she literary shook herself out of it and Twilight helped her up.
"Thanks Twi" Rainbow said.
"What are friends for" Twilight giggled, patting Rainbow on the back, gently.
"Hey.. This place is pretty neat" Rainbow said, finally having a chance to actually look around.
And it was.
The place was as busy as you could imagine, Stallions and unicorns of all ages were found all over the place.
Quite alot of the ponies were light grey, and the city had abit of a olden days feeling towards it.
It was covered with tall buildings, large fake rocks used as the ground, and even the smell of food was present.
"Ohh, that smells so good!" Rainbow said, allowing her nose to breath in the different food smells.
"Focus Rainbow Dash.. We're here for Spike" Twilight said, remaining serious.
"But Twilight. You have to admit, this is a pretty awesome place" the colorful Pegasus replied.
"Check out their flag" Rainbow said, flying up and point to a large 'Union Jack' waving slowly in the wind.
"Yes.. Very, unique" Twilight said, impressed by it.
"Yes.. Almost as awesome as I am" Rainbow said, bring back abit more of her cocky sides.
"But still.. Let's focus" Twilight said, returning to being serious.
"Aaaawwww" Rainbow groaned, looking down with disappointment.
"Fine.. Should we split up or something?" Rainbow asked, still hovering in the air, but not far from the ground.
"I don't know.. This is a pretty big place" Twilight said, looking around.
"Is that Terry?" Rainbow said suddenly.
"What!? Where!?" Twilight cried.
"Over there" Rainbow said pointing ahead.
Twilight followed the direction of the cyan hoof, and discovered a familiar white stallion\unicorn.
"Ohh, good find Rainbow" Twilight said happily, as the two ran over to him.
Twilight? Rainbow Dash?" Terry asked, clearly serprised.
"Twilight was worrying about Spike, like a worried mother or something. So finally, she decided to come check on him" Rainbow told him.
"I agreed to keep her company" Rainbow replied.
Terry didn't respond.
"So... Is he alright?" Twilight asked worriedly.
"Yes.. So is Rarity, if you wish to know" Terry replied.
"I we don't have huge rush then" Rainbow insisted.
"What do you mean?" Twilight asked.
"I mean.. Why don't we look around.. (points off view), look an antic store" Rainbow said.
Twilight looked over, and sure enough Rainbow was right, a small antic store was found wait in front of them.
"Can we check it out?" Rainbow asked excitedly.
"Spike will be fine" Rainbow said quickly.
"Fine.. Alright" Twilight said sighing.
"Yay.." Rainbow said, running over to it.
Twilight giggled as she followed after the cyan Pegasus.
Later that same afternoon, it was actually getting dark out, witch gave all the more reason for Terry to finally bring Twilight and Rainbow to meet up with Spike and Rarity in were Terry was staying with them.
"Thanks again for letting me visit that antic store Twi.. I always love those, guess its the child still in me" Rainbow said happily.
"No problem Dashie, least I could do" Twilight replied.
"What was you bought yourself again?" the purple mare asked shortly after her previous response.
"This" Rainbow replied, suddenly revealing a small snow globe, with a small bell tower inside it, along with the falling, snow like stuff.
"Awww, it's cute isn't it" Twilight giggled, Dash nodded.
"I actually got two of them" Rainbow said, revealing another snow globe, same size, same bell tower inside.
"I promised I'll get Sweetie Belle one, since she never got one from the Crystal Empire station, remember?" The cyan Pegasus reminded.
"I certainly do.. And its so sweet of you to remember such a promise to Rarity's cute little sister" Twilight said, still giggling.
"Alrighty than.. You girls ready to come inside?" Terry asked, once he got the door open.
"Sure are" Rainbow replied.
"Well then, after you" Terry said, gentlemanly.
"Aaawwww, such a sweetheart, aren't you?" Twilight giggled, as the two mare's went in first, as Terry held the door for them.
"I do what I can" Terry giggled, as he started going in himself, closing the door behind himself.
"Dashie! Twily!" Rarity excitedly cried, running up to her friends and hugging them.
"I was so worried about Spike, I just 'had' to see him.. Plus Rainbow here, agreed to tag along, as a comforting companion" Twilight told the fellow pure white unicorn.
"Its what friends do" Rainbow said, almost blushing.
"Well, great seeing you girls either way" Rarity said, grinning.
"You too" the others both replied.
Before long Spike also came into view.
"Ha-ha.. Dragon of the hour" Rainbow commented.
Spike was abit confused by this and didn't respond directly.
"Spike!" Twilight cried when she saw him, and ran over to squeeze hug him.
"Oh god! I was so worried! I mean what were you thinking!?" the purple unicorn added, finally releasing the hug.
Spike was about to answer but Twilight just said "Scratch that.. I don't wanna know, just don't ever do that again Spike.. Please"
"Uhhh.. Anyway. I guess we should get to sleep know.. It's quite late" Terry said.
Everyone agreed, and started finding places to sleep.
LATER THE NEXT DAY!
Rarity, Spike, Terry Twilight and Rainbow were all riding the train back to ponyville.
"Hey, Dashie?" Twilight said, from sitting beside the colorful Pegasus the whole ride back.
"Yes Twilight?" Rainbow asked, relaxing herself best she could.
"I really enjoyed hanging with you.. When we get back home, do ever wanna hang out, again?.. Maybe I could join you and Pinkie next time you prank together" Twilight asked happily.
"I don't know Twi.. Hanging again is an absolute... But you don't seem like much of a pranker" Rainbow admitted.
Twilight giggled, "I guess you right.. Hoof shake?" Twilight asked, holding out one of her purple hooves.
"Sure, why not" Rainbow said, getting her hoof out and shook the unicorn's, but suddenly the young Pegasus got zapped, and a laughing Twilight revealed to have had a zapper.
"Still not convinced?" Twilight laughed.
"Well.. Not bad for a egghead.. But alright. You cart me there, you could join me and Pinkie" Rainbow said giggling.
"Yay! This is gonna be fun!" Twilight cried excitedly.
