Chapter 5: Try Again
قوس قزح Dash was at her could house in the sky thinking about what she should do. Trying to ask some ٹٹو out wouldn’t be hard for her. Asking Slash out is a totally different story. She was trying to figure out how to tell Slash how she really felt about him. Before she could think مزید about this, a knock was coming from her door. It was Slash.
“Rainbow Dash, are آپ in there?” asked Slash.
“Uhh, no, قوس قزح Dash is not here. Please leave a message after the beep…. beeeeep.” کہا قوس قزح Dash.
“Oh, well I came to finish قوس قزح Dash’s گٹار lessons and- Heeeey, wait a second! Doors can’t talk یا make beep noises! What kind of بادل door is this?”
قوس قزح Dash opened to door to see Slash.
“Oh ارے قوس قزح Dash. Did آپ know your door could talk?”
“Umm…what’s up Slash?”
“Well I was here to see if آپ still wanna learn how to play guitar.”
“Oh! Yeah I still wanna learn how to play.”
“Alright, I got the guitars right here.”
Slash brought out the guitars and went back to give Dash her lessons. Time went on and Dash was getting better and better. Now she wasn’t missing a note, playing all the right notes Slash told her to do. Before any ٹٹو knew it, قوس قزح Dash was playing the گٹار like a natural!
There آپ go,” کہا Slash. “Your playing like آپ been playing for years!”
“Heh, thanks dude.” کہا قوس قزح Dash.
“No problem at all.”
قوس قزح Dash looked down and so did Slash. Both rubbing the back of they’re heads with their hoofs. Then they looked back at each other.
“I have something to-“ they both said.
“You first.” قوس قزح Dash said.
“Well I’m planning to start a band and I was wondering if آپ want to join.”
“Oh, uh, sure!”
“Great! Now what did آپ want to ask me?”
“Uhhh, I…I was wondering if…. I was just going to ask if I could شامل میں your band actually. But I got my answer already!”
“Oh cool! So now we got آپ and me, and we can both play guitar. Now we just need to find some ٹٹو who can play drums and the bass.”
“Well maybe I know some dragon who can play the drums.”
Slash knew whom she was talking about, and with a quick nod both Pegasus flew to Twilight’s درخت house. Slash knocked on the door and Twilight opened her door.
“Rainbow Dash!” Twilight کہا happily. “Slash…” she کہا with a mean look on her face.”
“Hey there Twilight,” کہا قوس قزح Dash.
“Hey dude how’s it going?” asked Slash.
Twilight kept giving Slash a dirty look.
“What, is there something on my face?”
“No, I just don’t like you.”
“I don’t trust you.”
“What does that have to do with not liking me?”
“Ugh, nothing. Anyways what’s up?”
“We were wondering if we could talk to Spike,” کہا قوس قزح Dash.
“Spike!” Twilight called out.
“Yes Twilight?” asked Spike.
“Rainbow Dash and Slash wants to talk to you.”
“Sure what’s up?”
“We wanna know if آپ would like to be the ڈرمر of our new band.” Slash said.
“But I don’t know how to play the drums.”
“Which is why I have this for you.”
*Slash gives Spike a book. *
“Huh. ‘How To Become a Heavy Metal Drummer.’ There is actually a book for this?”
“Yup! Got it from the Heavy Metal store back home.”
“Well I guess I could learn this and become your drummer.”
But then Twilight took the book away from Spike.
“Nope! Spike is not going to read this and become some heavy metal dragon! I know how that موسیقی is. Partying all night, not doing any work, and worse of all ALWAYS BEING TARDY!
“First of all, partying it awesome, we do work سے طرف کی playing music, and being four hours late to band practice means your right on time!”
“And this is why I don’t like you, Slash. You’re the opposite of me! And you’re too wild!”
“I love being wild and I am who I am!”
“Ugh, well آپ better find another dragon to be your drummer.”
“Uh, yeah, what Twilight said!” کہا Spike.
“Hey squirt, I think آپ would want to be our ڈرمر because Rarity told me she loves drummers!”
“…TWILIGHT, PLEASE! LET ME BE THEIR DRUMMER!”
“I کہا no, Spike!”
Spike gives Twilight big کتے dog eyes to try to convince her.
“Ugh! Fine Spike, آپ can be their drummer.”
“Yes! Thank آپ Twilight, thank you!”
“Great! Now we just need to find a باس, گھنگھور player!” کہا Slash.
“Oh! Well I could write up some flies and post them all around Ponyville saying we’re looking for a باس, گھنگھور player.”
Spike then started to make flies to put around all over Ponyville. He got the first one done and showed قوس قزح Dash and Slash. They both loved it. Spike rolled it up to put it side, but then he sneezed and the flier was sent to Princess Celstia’s قلعہ in Canterlot.
“Oops.” Spike said.
“Well, at lease the Princess will know we need a باس, گھنگھور player.” قوس قزح Dash said.
Just then a knock on the door came and Spike went to open the door. Spike walked to the door and opened it. It was Princess Luna, and she was holding a باس, گھنگھور in her hoofs.
“Princess Luna?” کہا Spike
“Hello the one they call Spike.” Luna said.
“What are آپ doing here?”
“I came about آپ flier. آپ کہا آپ needed a باس, گھنگھور player?”
“Princess Luna, آپ play the bass?” asked Twilight.
“Yeah! آپ see when I was on the moon for a thousand years I found a باس, گھنگھور with an amp and taught myself how to play.”
“What? That doesn’t make any sense. Why would a باس, گھنگھور be up on the moon just like that?”
“Don’t know, but don’t care. Can آپ play it well?” asked Slash.
Luna then started to play and she played like an all time pro. Doing باس, گھنگھور solos, she even made her باس, گھنگھور sound like an electric guitar! (A/N: Yes! It IS possible! If آپ don’t believe me, go on Youtube, and type in Cliff Burrton solos and watch the man play! But in this case he’s a god in heavy metal! Back to the story.) Slash, قوس قزح Dash, Spike, and even Twilight Sparkle was amazed on how well she played the bass!
“Wow! Okay, you’re in!” کہا قوس قزح Dash.
“Huzza! When is our first show?” asked Luna.
“Hold on now. We still need to think of a band name and we need to find a gig.” Slash said.
“Well then what’s going to be the name of our band?” asked Spike.
The ponies and dragon began to think of a name. They wanted a good one and no ponies would forget. They came up with some names but not all agreed. Just then Princess Luna came up with a name.
“I know!” Luna said. “We could name our band name can be, Of Sorrow And Harmony!”
“Hey that could work,” کہا قوس قزح Dash. “Sorrow for the darkness دکھانا in heavy metal, but harmony representing The Elements of Harmony right?”
“That is correct, قوس قزح Dash.”
“Of Sorrow Of Harmony…That really sounds good!” کہا Slash.
“I agree on it too!” کہا Spike.
“Then it’s settled. The name of our band will be Of Sorrow Of Harmony.”
All of them were happy, expect قوس قزح Dash. She was happy for her new heavy metal band, but was disappointed she didn’t tell Slash want she wanted to tell him. Now she would have to wait longer to go out with Slash, but maybe this way she could get even closer to her crush.
