The Confessions of Apple Bloom
The days began to run together since the incident. It was like the sun stopped shining, the wind stopped blowing, the world stopped turning… and yet the sun still rose and the ponies still came to the shop. The bakery still filled orders and ponies still came into buy cakes and other delights, they were none the wiser to what was in their confections. Apple Bloom rolled out a pie crust and sighed. The kitchen was so….quiet….without her love. She sighed and looked out the window, all the little fillies playing in the grass, like nothing had changed. Apple Bloom couldn't take it anymore, the silence was driving her crazy. She grabbed her cape from the hook and began walking to Canterlot. She made it there before night fall and walked all the way up to the castle, the normal complaining hours were over but she was a special guest to the princess. She had a grim expression as she walked up to Princess Luna. She approached the new Princess, for you see Celestia has been 'missing' for about two weeks. It was presumed she would not return so Luna gained the throne. Apple Bloom approached the benevolent princess and bowed.
"Excuse me princess Luna, ah Apple Bloom the culprit behind the missin' ponies. Ah have been guttin' them and puttin' them into the confections of the bakery since ah was a filly." She looked at the princess hoping she would be punished by some means.
"What is this? Do I look like I have time for jokes?" She growled at Apple Bloom.
"Why would ah lie about that?" She couldn't believe it. She outright confessed and no one believed her.
"Guards! Take this pony away. I do not have time for such a mockery." She stood up and the guards began to drag Apple Bloom away.
Apple Bloom stared at the gates of Canterlot. How could this be? When Celestia was princess she was always welcome in the palace. Such a rude shove out the door, when did her name mean nothing? She glared at the doors and she bucked them. She then began walking back to Ponyville. How could she prove herself, she had never had to prove her actions. It was late in the night when she finally got home. She opened the door to the bakery and stared as the silence was deafening reminder. She nearly cried, she had never been so alone. She managed to drag her heavy heart upstairs and lay in bed. She breathed a heavy sigh and tried to think of how to end everything.
Apple Bloom woke up early in the morning some little filly was banging on her store door. She growled getting up, everything left heavy. Her head, her eyes, her hooves, everything was so heavy, she almost just wanted to fall down the stairs maybe it would be faster. She couldn't bring herself to do it, she was such a coward. She shook her head and opened the door for the filly, she dashed between Apple Bloom's legs and then faced her in the kitchen. She was a familiar filly, one of her niece's friends. Sunshine Daisy, a little golden filly with a white mane was bounding in the entrance of the bakery.
"YAY YOU'RE UP! I need a cake made for my grandma's birthday!" She looked at the tired pony and she stopped bouncing. "What's the matter?" She frowned.
"It's nothing you need to worry about my dear. Ah just have a problem. No one believes me when ah tell the truth." She walked over to the counter where there was a cake in a box; she made it the night before for her.
The filly cocked her head to the side and stared at the pony. "Well if no one believes you when you tell them why don't you show them?"
Apple Bloom almost dropped the filly's cake. She looked at the foal, what an idea. "That is an amazing idea!" She picked up the filly and smiled.
Sunshine Daisy giggled as she was swung about the bakery. "I know I have good ideas some times. But I need that cake, my grandma is waiting."
"Right." She gave the little filly the cake and watched her take off. She smiled what an idea, she was a bit early for her next harvest but really she wasn't feeling up to a harvest anyway. She galloped down stairs and drew a number, it wasn't anyone special but it would certainly get the point across. She retrieved her victim and then barely used her usual technique. She made her victim woozy and dragged her to the basement.
"Sorry 'bout this. But you should be grateful, you're the last one." She put on her apron of cutie marks and stood over the Pegasus she cut into her chest and opened her up. She just let her squirm there as she looked over to Pinkie Pie.
"WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS? WHAT DID I DO TO YOU?" She pony screamed and was crying. The pony tried to move but realized the straps held her firm.
"Oh, its nothin' personal. Well, if you hafta blame someone blame the princess." She pointed over her shoulder to princess Celestia. The pony gasped in horror and then Apple Bloom put the knife to her throat and slowly made incisions along her wind pipe. As the air began to suck in the opening she began to gurgle blood. Apple Bloom licked her lips and then licked the slits in the pony's neck. She smiled and then tore open her throat with her teeth. The pony gurgled and drowned on her own blood and vomit. Apple Bloom cleaned her tools after removing the pony's head. She then took the pony's head and walked outside to put it out on the sign. Herself still covered in blood and her apron of cutie marks, she looked around as the pony's quickly began to realize what was on the sign.
