Somepony to Watch Over Me

Whatever they decide, Applebloom, we'll be here for you.
Even though it could change everything for you.
Forever! And ever! So We here have decided That you're old enough stay home alone and take care of the chores yourself for the afternoon! I accept your decision.
Staying home alone! By myself! On my own! I can't believe I am really doing it! Now hey there, filly.
I know you're excited, but being the only pony here to take care of the day's chores is a big responsibility! I know it! And it means everything to me that y'all think I am grown up enough to handle it! I won't let you down.
Well, if'n I wanna make my train, I best to be off.
When grandaunt Pineapple says a pony's got to arrive by a certain time you'd better be there.
You be sure and take care now, Applebloom.
Y'all take care as well.
I don't know which of your delivery routes is tougher.
You're each headed to a mighty hard to reach town.
We know, Granny.
That's the only reason I agreed to let Applebloom stay behind alone.
It is? Oh, I didn't mean it like that, sugarcube.
It's just I take my job as your big sister real serious.
Which is why I spent all night making this.
What is it? Just a little list of helpful reminders.
There's some soup for you in the refrigerator.
Be sure to not heat it up too much.
If it's hot, blow on it to cool it off.
And take little sips.
If you gulp, you could get hiccups.
You don't to have worry about me.
I can take care of myself! And the chores.
I am ready for this.
I guess you are.
I am just not so sure I am.
But, you trust me and believe I am grown up enough to handle this.
Right? Right.
Okay then.
Good luck, little sis! Okay! Great! See you soon! Bye! See you later, little sis! See ya! Bye! Yeeeeaaap! I am alone! At home! I am home alone! This is gonna be so awesome! Sorry, Big Mac.
I was just fretting a bit about Applebloom.
You think she is going to be okay on her own? Eeyup! I just keep on thinking of things I forgot to put on her list.
Like, I didn't write down that if she wants to get a spoon out of the drawer, she needs to open the drawer first.
I know I am probably just being silly.
But I know I'd feel a heap better if I could just check on Applebloom one last time.
You go on ahead and make your delivery.
I'm just gonna take a quick peek and then I'll make mine.
Okay, number one seventy two.
"Make sure to pump the bellows to keep the stove warm.
" Check! "Make sure the hats and bows closet is fully stocked.
" Check! That's everything on Applejack's list! And now that my chores are done, since there's no-one else here, I get to make all of the decisions! If I wanna listen to music, I can! If I wanna read a book, I can! If I just wanna stand here in the kitchen talkin' to myself, I can! Applebloom! Applejack? Applejack? I came back to check on you, and I'm so glad I did! I never thought about how dangerous things are round here! Thanks, but I'm really gonna be okay! You are now! Because I'm here and I'm stayin'! No way am I leavin' my little baby sister home alone all by herself! I'm not a baby! I can take care of myself! And what about those pies you're supposed to deliver? Pies? Ha, family's way more important than pies! But I'm fine! And, actually? This was kind of your fault.
I know.
I should never have left you alone.
But I don't need you looking after me.
I'm perfectly capable of stayin' home alone.
Really! Just look! "There's some soup for you in the refrigerator.
" What was that? Watch me! Oh no! This is worse than I thought! Well don't worry, Applebloom, I'm here now and I'm not leavin' you home alone ever again.
I'm stickin' right by your side, always! Applebloom? Applebloom! Applejack's just overreactin' a bit.
I'm sure she'll snap out of it.
You need somethin'? I'm right here! I know you mean well, but I don't need you watchin' over me! I can take care of things myself! Look! Hey! Who put pillows on this rake? Oh, I don't know.
Maybe someone who really loves her little sister and doesn't want her to get an owie? Hey, Applejack! Watch me buck these apples on my own without anythin' bad happenin' to me! For the love of You've gone and baby-proofed everythin'! Yup! Your big sister let you down once, but I promise it won't ever happen again.
But really, I'm fine! I can take care of myself.
I don't need you watchin' over me! That's sweet! I appreciate you tryin' to make me feel better, but don't worry.
I'll always be here for you.
And that's the reason I asked y'all to come over quick.
Hey Applebloom! You need anything? A snack? A hoof massage? Maybe a snack while havin' a hoof massage? Why that sounds delightful! No thank you! O-kay, well you can count on me bein' close by if'n you need anythin'! You see what I mean? If this keeps up, I'm never gonna be able to do anythin' without Applejack hoverin' over me! So what can we do? Hang on a sec, I got it! What? The pies! I'll sneak out and deliver them! Granny said they were goin' to some incredibly hard to reach town.
If I can do it alone, that'll show Applejack I don't need somepony watchin' over me! Just one problem.
Your sister's gonna come back and check on you any minute! Which means you need an escape plan.
And I got an idea for one! See? It'll look just like you're sleeping in bed.
Sweetie and I can take turns! That way, when one of us gets tired, the other can take over.
Brilliant, huh? You know what? It is! I got a feelin' this just might work! We're gonna make my sister see I don't need her watchin' over me- Stop! No time for a song! Applejack's coming! If you're gonna go we've gotta get you out of here now! Cutie Mark Crusaders, let's do this! Everythin' okay in there, Sugarcube? Quick, get in while I hide! Sweetie, no! You gotta sleep like Applebloom! How does she sleep? Like she does everything! With sass! I guess you must've been so tuckered out you sent your friends home and went to bed.
Then again, you are a delicate flower.
Sleep tight, Applebloom.
I'll check on you again in a bit.
Just checkin' in on you again! Need anythin' now? How 'bout now? Need another blanket? Did I hear a cough? Want a glass of water? Just checkin' in on you again.
Look at you, dozin' so peaceful-like.
Here I am, checkin' up on you every five seconds, and you're totally fine.
Maybe you don't need me frettin' over you all the time.
Wow, Applebloom will be so glad to hear that! Huh? Scootaloo? N-no.
Sweetie Belle? But where's Applebloom? She's not here! She could be anywhere! She could be lost, cold, hungry, itchy, stuffed up, needin' to go to the bathroom! Don't worry, we know exactly where she is.
Yeah, she's making your pie delivery.
What?! No! Didn't she hear how difficult and dangerous it was?! I may never see my little sister again! Okay, Rarity's on her way over to look after you two.
Now tell me, did Applebloom at least bring flame-proof boots? A lion-tamer's chair? A snake charmin' flute? A hunk of ricotta? Okay, maybe there's still time to catch her before she gets there.
When did she leave? It must've been hours ago.
Oh no! I can't see a darn thing in this swamp.
Well, now at least I can see.
I'd stay where you are.
This is the the only safe spot around here.
It don't look so safe to me.
Oh, we just mean from the flames.
Yeah, not from us.
What was that? Oh, can you guys speak up? I was about to tell our guest how we haven't eat in days.
My sister and I can never agree what to eat.
Except… pie.
Well… Unfortunately I gotta get these pies to a town on the other side of swamp, so… Oh, you don't have to worry about that.
You don't need to worry about anything anymore.
Because we are going to have our apple pie with a side of filly filet.
You don't say?… Now, sisters, on three One! Two! Three! No! Where do you think you are going? Where are the pies?! They are not back here.
This is your fault! You think you've always gotta be in charge! Oh… You are lucky you know.
You've got no idea what it's like to have a sister constantly looking over your shoulder.
Oh… Actually… Let's try listening a me for a change.
And I say.
If there are no pies, let's settle for the filly filet! Any last words? I really wish my sister were here! Hang on, Applebloom! I'm a-comin'! Get her! Hey! I thought I was in charge now! Howdy! Ricotta! Let's go! Are you okay? Thanks to you.
I told you you need your big sister looking after you! I'm just glad this wasn't a whole lot worse.
I mean, sure we lost the cart, and all the pies, but at least you're… Huh, the cart! And all the pies! You actually got them all the way up here? In the dark? Through the flame geyser swamp? Past that monster? By yourself? Well… yeah.
Huh, wow.
That's mighty impressive.
Anypony who can do that on her own, well, she don't need somepony like me babyin' her.
Oh, glee! This pie's even tastier than my momma's swampwater casserole! Aw, now momma don't be like that.
Just remember you fellers wouldn't be enjoyin' these pies if it weren't for my sister.
And my sister! But this don't change the fact that tryin' to make this delivery on your own was a plum-crazy thing to do.
I know… Huh, I bet Granny Smith grounds you for a month for sneakin' out! And if Big Mac, Granny Smith 'n I ever have to be away for the day again… I would totally trust you to stay home and take care of things on your own.
I guess I did get a little carried away watching over you, and if you hadn't snuck out like you did, maybe I wouldn't have figured that out.
Yes! Now that is the kind of 'looking after me' that I can definitely appreciate! So… we're good? Little sister, we're always good.
