Rarity moved forward at a slow and nervous pace; her mind had never raced this much before. She had no idea what to expect, she didn't want to get yelled at and shut out again, but she also couldn't just leave this problem be. This must be solved today. Time seemed to slow as she walked up the narrow path leading to Fluttershy's front door. The time had come; it was time for Rarity to find out what was really going on.
She was about to reach for the door handle, but stopped herself. "It would be rude to just barge in," she thought. "No, I must handle this with dignity, and respect." She then positioned herself to knock on the door, however just as her hoof was about to make contact, she heard something; the most beautiful singing she had ever heard:

Rarity quickly snapped out of her trance. "I'm sorry, what?"
"Alright, I'll have the pork."
Rarity continued to stare at her as Fluttershy shrank back a little bit. The mare burst out lauging.

Fabric flew through the air as sewing machines buzzed and threads weaved. A white unicorn was hard at work preparing an ensemble for a client. "Work," she said to herself. "There's always so much to do, which I suppose is a good thing, of course. Naturally I should expect an increase in my work load as my clients get bigger and bigger. Oh my! It's such an exciting thought! Rarity's designs worn by the most regal ponies in Equestria! Now, now, dear, let's not get too far ahead of ourselves."
In the midst of her external monologue, her timer rang.
"Oh dear, is it that time already?"
She swiftly grabbed her robe and galloped out the door to meet a certain yellow Pegasus at Ponyville's spa. It was a small business, as the luxuries of a spa were not affordable to the average pony, but being one of the high class ponies in Ponyville, Rarity could afford to take her and Fluttershy weekly. They normally discussed current events and minor gossip, of course with the dress maker running the conve
