Neither unicorn could hold back their tears as the moonstone gem inlaid in its silver and cobalt band winked at the mare it had been presented for.
“Well Moony, do you? Will you become my wife?” Dusk Star’s voice crackled with hope as he watched his marefriend’s face for any sign.
“Yes….” It was very soft so Dusk had to strain to hear but quickly, even as tears filled her voice, Moonstone looked at her coltfriend with a wide grin.
“Yes! Oh Dusk, yes yes yes! I’ll marry you!!” And the two blubbered and hugged as they attempted to slide the band and stone around Moon’s horn.
Three days later the two announced their engagement. Pinkie threw a huge party for her favorite niece and hugged Twilight, going on and on about being in-laws, sort of.
Trixie, Maud, Cheerilee, and Cheese Sandwich congratulated the two while the other Pie cousins offered advice about the wedding, and afterwards, that Moon and Dusk politely declined.
But, over in a corner of Sugar Cube Corner, two mares were in a heated battle of words.
“HOW DARE YOUR COUSIN MARRY MY BROTHER, KILLER!” That came from Galaxy Gale.
“HOW DARE YOUR BROTHER MARRY MY COUSIN, FLANKHOLE!” Turquoise Edge retorted. Neither mare caring for the fact that they would become family and be forced to spend more time together, but nopony heard the squawking mares as they watched Moonstone and Dusk Star share in a sweet kiss.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
