"Hey, Erik." Spoke Sunset Shimmer, a tentative smile fixed above her chin. "I see you scrapped the leather jacket... kind of nice, isn't it?" The older teen froze, fingers stilling midway through the combination of his locker.
"What do you want, Sunset?"
"Nothing." She quickly replied, forcing herself to swallow alarm. She wasn't that girl anymore, she'd saved the world this time. Earned her ears, tail... forgiveness would hopefully follow. "I just wanted to apologize." Erik's brow rose. "I wasn't very nice to you when we went out." Continued Sunset, threading hands behind her back. A sigh followed, smile fading. "I know it's been a while, but I never said anything so... I thought I would, now." If it wasn't too late. If it was, she'd made friends, officially found a mentor of sorts in Twilight Sparkle... it would simply be nice to officially tuck away her past, move on and start again.
Erik's next words were quiet, so much so, she nearly missed them. "I heard you stopped the Dazzlings. Is that true?"
"Yeah." Sunset Shimmer nodded. She pointed to her head. "Even had the pony ears. Guess I'm officially one of them, huh?" Smile returned, still sheepish, still small.
If Erik found humor in her statement (or anything else for that matter) he kept it to himself, looking at her like he had since the Formal. "I see." Perhaps her ambition got the best of her; for a moment, a sliver of ice melted from his eyes. "So we've both found our happiness."
She knew he meant Charles, but his statement still surprised her; Sunset blinked, then nodded. "Yeah." She answered, more confident than before. For she was happy now. Still finding her way around the friendship thing, and stumbling more days than not over forgiveness but... happiness? She'd found it, no question. "Uh, look.." said the fire-haired girl after a time, "I promised the girls I'd be at rehearsal on time, so I need to go. It was nice talking to you, Erik." She turned, preparing to go. As she did, she could have sworn she caught a smile from the corner of her eye.
Crappy drabble is crappy.
I LOVE EQUESTRIA GIRLS DON'T JUDGE ME. This has been eating my mind since I saw Rainbow Rocks. Sunset Shimmer and Erik Lehnsherr dated for a while in my crossover AU but now that Sunset's reformed I just had to wonder how a reunion would go, post-sequel. I'm not entirely happy with the written part, and his head is too small in the drawing but I'm proud of how they look individually XD; Sunset is HARD to draw.
