Big Macintosh and Applejack as a baby. (Art (c) Soulskey on DeviantART)
When I heard I was going to have a baby sister, I couldn't believe it.
One day, Ma and I were just getting ready for dîner when she dropped the Sonic Rainboom on me. She was pregnant.
Now, pregnancy is a big deal. toi need to prepare for a long time and then actually have your filly. Then toi need to raise them,
I wasn't happy. "Why can't we jus' have me?" I whined. Ma sighed. "We l’amour y'all, and toi know tha', Big Mac." She ruffled my mane ad planted a Kiss on my ear.
I just flicked my ear irritably and trotted away to go eat dinner. Granny Smith was grinning at me when I arrived in the dining room. "Aren't y'all excited?" she wheezed. "Y'all are gonna have a baby sistah!"
I nodded glumly, saying, "Eeyup." I'm no longer the special young one...
I thought sadly as I ate my foins, hay sandwich.
As the rest of the pomme Family munched away happily, Pa and I went out to the orchard. "I understan' you're upset 'n all, but I wan' toi to promise me somethin'." He glanced around and leaned in slowly. I looked at him.
"You mus' promise to protect your sister always," Pa whispered. "Please?"
I thought for a minute. I guess raising a sister could
be fun, if I truly loved her...
After a moment's hesitation, I looked back up at Pa. "I promise."
