  4. >Dad said the first thing mom did was tell everyone the news.
  5. >She was worn out and haggard from the birth, but mom was tough as nails and full of pride.
  6. >She was literally shouting out the open window of the hospital while you were nursing.
  7. >Dad just about fainted from embarrassment.
  8. >And even though you were all little and squishy looking, Dad remembers Mom saying, “Look at her, the most beautiful filly anypony’s ever laid eyes on.”
  9. >Those first few years must have been pretty great.
  10. >Watching you learn.
  11. >Teaching you to walk and talk.
  12. >”Oh, c’mon Pinchy, you’re a big filly aren’t you? Don’t go crying from a little fall.”
  13. >Helping with the times that you couldn’t do it very well.
  14. >You’re looking forward to it pretty soon yourself.
  15.  
  16. >As a filly though, real life doesn’t exist in your world.
  17. >The only times it overlaps from your adventures and shenanigans is when they keep your mom from playing with you.
  18. “Mom, mom! C’mon, I found a really HUGE bug! I think it’s like the Queen of the bugs!”
  19. >”Pinchy, I’m balancing the bit- just give me a minute will you?”
  20. “Okay mom…”
  21. >Sometimes real life can get in the way for a lot longer than just a minute.
  22. “Mom, look. I made you this! It’s you fighting that big purple dragon that showed up last week!”
  23. >”Can I look later? I’ve gotta nap before my next shift. Just leave it on the table.”
  24. >Then you get older and finally move out to find your own way.
  25. >Cutie mark proudly on your flank, you forge a path of your own.
  26. >Dad calls all the time, your chatstone can never stop buzzing.
  27. >”Are you okay? Do you need me to send some recipes? What if we come visit?”
  28. >But mom doesn’t bother you nearly as much.
  29. >Probably wants you to go a little crazy, just like she bragged she did.
  30. >Like she knows that it’s your turn now, so you can brag later on.
  31. >It’s always nice when she does call though.
  32. >”How’re you holding up kid?”
  33. “I’m good, old lady.”
  34. >”Yeah I bet you’re good, up to your neck in cock eh? Just like your ol’ mare.”
  35. “MOM!”
  36. >She just laughs into her end of the stone.
  37. “It is a little crazy out here though… bit lonely sometimes.”
  38. >”Lonely? What’re you lonely for? Dad practically never puts down this damn stone does he?”
  39. >Now it’s your turn to laugh.
  40.  
  41. >The gap that seemed to have appeared when you left only grows wider as time goes on.
  42. >Her jokes get a little same-y.
  43. >Your jokes don’t make sense to her.
  44. “You didn’t see ‘Shovechamp'? But it’s like the most brutal play out there! Dad always threw a fit when you’d take me to see any plays like this. I know you’d love it mom.”
  45. >”Eh, It’s just not the same, I barely understood what they were saying in 'Diss-Factory’."
  46. >You both watch different things now.
  47. >She gets older, and it seems like she does it faster than you.
  48. >She’s slower, can’t hear as well, and she has to think about her replies.
  49. >”…”
  50. “Are you still there mom? Ah!”
  51. >Dropped some melted cheese on your hoof.
  52. >”Are you al-“
  53. >The pot of broccoli is about to boil over.
  54. “Hey mom, can I call you back on the weekend? I’m a little busy right now, and it’ll probably stay like that throughout the week.”
  55. >She says her goodbyes slowly, you shoot yours back fast so you can take the pot off the stove.
  56. >It’s frustrating at the time, how her pace is just slower than yours.
  57. >She’s still there though, whenever you lose it.
  58. >Break-ups, work, little dumb things that don’t matter even one year later.
  59. >”You’re going to be fine Pinchy. I raised you myself didn’t I?”
  60. >Sometimes her sage voice is just the thing you need.
  61. “Thanks Mom…”
  62. >”Anytime Pinch.”
  63. >It fills in for the words you’re too broken up to speak.
  64.  
  65. >Time moves on, and it feels like her world is completely different to yours now.
  66. >Unlike Dad, she doesn’t want to trouble you with her life.
  67. >She’s just happy to hear about yours.
  68. >”*BEEP* A promotion huh? And what’s this Dad *BEEP* tells me about the secretary? He’s cute ri*BEEP*ght?”
  69. “Mom, turn off the recorder setting, I can’t hear you well.”
  70. >”What? Did I *BEEP* do it?”
  71. “No mom, it’s still doing it.”
  72. >*BEEP*
  73. >It just gets easier to pass you to Dad.
  74. >”Hi Pinchy! I’m sorry your mother just tossed you over to me. She said there’s a game on and she doesn’t want to miss it.”
  75. “It’s alright Mom, I’ve got the game recording at home actually. I’m out with Featherweight right now.”
  76. >”HI Mr. Pierce~!”
  77. >”HI Featherweight!”
  78. >”Whoo Hoo! Touchdown!”
  79. “I take it mom’s doing okay?”
  80. >”She’s got a few more aches in the morning she just ‘loves’ to tell me all about while I make breakfast… but other than that she’s fine.”
  81. >It may not be the same as talking to her, but you understand.
  82. >Just a quick check to make sure your old mare is doing okay before you carry on with your week.
  83. >But then you hear those words.
  84. >Those words you never expected to hear coming from the tearful voice of your father.
  85. >Your heart sinks like a stone, and your blood runs ice cold.
  86. >”Mom passed away… I’m so sorry Ruby…”
  87.  
  88. >”Honey? Are you alright?”
  89. >Featherweight’s wing wraps around your shoulder as sit on the edge of the bed.
  90. >You’ll never get to speak to her again.
  91. “No… I don’t think I’m alright,” you whisper.
  92. >He holds you close and you hold him back as you try ride out the shock.
  93. >The strongest pony you ever knew is gone, but…
  94. >”Just like your old mare… I raised you myself didn’t I?”
  95. >No, she’s never really going to be gone.
