Sunbeams were penetrating every nook and cranny of the barn's walls. The roaster gave out his usual crow. It was morning time.
Rainbow had had a surprisingly good night. She didn't let the Wonder Pugs' snoring or the thunder and lightning wake her up. Not even once. And the puppies never flinched at the noise, either.
She gave a big yawn, slowly opened her eyes, and looked at the vacant green shell. "Morning, Tank," she said quietly.
In response, the tortoise popped his head out of his shell and yawned.
Then, Rainbow looked to her left and cooed, "Morning, Wonder Pugs "
Suddenly, her eyes went wide in shock. The spot where the Wonder Pugs slept next to her was completely ii>empty.</i>
"Oh no!" gasped Rainbow. "Not again! Tank, we gotta find them!"
Tank immediately activated the helicopter hat on his shell and took off onto the barn supports. It was good to have some watchful eyes from above.
"Spitfire?" Rainbow called out after searching through every interior of the

The rain grew heavier as the group of six arrived at Sweet Apple Acres. Rainbow, Tank, and the Wonder Pugs were all soaking wet.
"Don't worry, Wonder Pugs!" called Rainbow over the storm. "We're almost there! Look! Follow the lights coming from the house!"
The puppies, although shivering from the cold raindrops, fervently obeyed. The lights weren't hard to miss. Rainbow knew that there was somepony at home.
They trudged over the slightly muddy road, except for the airborne Tank. It was hard work for the puppies, but they struggled on. Even if they were scared of the ensuing thunder and lightning, they wouldn't stop. Rainbow could see it in their determined little eyes.
It wasn't until they were halfway to the house that Rainbow signaled Tank to pick up the puppies one by one and lay them on the blue Pegasus' back. First went Soarin', then Fleetfoot, Spitfire, and Rapidfire.
"You've already made me proud," she spoke to the pugs, face to face with each and every one of them. "Right now,

Opal didn't know how it kept happening, but the puppies had avoided knocking down and destroying items of the household. They were just plain lucky, she supposed. She was the one doing the tampering of Rarity's stuff with her clumsiness.
Well, it didn't matter now.
The puppies were trapped at the closed door that led to Rarity's room. They began shaking, whimpering with fear.
Excellent, thought Opal, giving herself a toothy smile. There was nowhere else for these little runts to run.
She could even see her reflection on the puppies' eyes, which suited her with satisfaction. She wanted to see herself give the scratching blow.
It was time these intruders were taught a little lesson on what would happen after drinking from a bowl that wasn't theirs. Rarity would be so proud when she saw what a good job her cat had done.
Opal slowly raised her right paw, brandishing its claws as if drawing a sword from its sheath. This made the puppies shut their eyes and embrace each other f

In the front porch of the Carousel Boutique, which was resided by Rarity as her home, Rainbow pressed her right hoof against the door to open, but it wouldn't budge.
"Guess it's locked," she concluded out loud. She turned to Tank and the Wonder Pugs, who were inquisitive for results. "I'll try knocking."
And she did so, softly. "Hello?" she called. "Rarity?" There was no answer. She knocked again, just a tad bit harder. "Are you in there, Rarity? I need to talk to you!" Like before, there was only silence from within the house. Rainbow seethed impatiently and pounded the door. "Rarity! Open this door, for Pete's sake!"
When it became evident that nopony was going to answer, she closed her eyes and breathed a heavily sigh of resignation. "Well, Wonder Pugs," she spoke at last, "Rarity's not home. Guess we're gonna have to wait until "
She stopped, almost instantly after opening her eyes. For a moment, her mind went blank. She thought she was imagining things—that her stress w
