Rarity usually did not stroll the beach shore line alone at night. It was not safe for a lady to do alone at this hour but just minutes ago she had had her best friend Applejack with her. Only until Winona broke off her leash and began to chase after another stray dog and, in a display of uncharacteristic disloyalty, ran after the other animal. AJ had to bolt off after the canine.
“Be right back, Rares. Try to keep up.”
Rarity trotted after her farmer friend but did not rush too much. She was enjoying the early winter breeze and serene setting of the moonlight bathed across the ocean surface.
She sighed and took a seat, looking out on the ocean. If only she had somepony special to share it with. Friends were good, she knew. She should not complain. But still…
The sound of the ship horn in the distance was at first like a dream. Her alabaster ears twitched before she looked around in the starlight night for its source. She saw in the clearing fog a large sea vessel and stood.
She definitely had taken on way too much when she had decided to come to this town. Sometimes Jessica felt like she could just feel all of the supernatural things that lurked in the town, but at least she had gotten a job at the local grill. That way she could pretend this move was just for a change of scenery to stock up on more cash, rather than trying to figure out what was causing the recent deaths. Smiling, she turned to the customer that she had seen in here quite a bit.
“There’s never a dull day in Mystic Falls, is there? — What can I get you?”
