Gone Went the Waistline
[At Sweetheart’s house…]
“Mom, are you sure you truly need to do this?” asked Sweetheart.
“Sweetheart, I wouldn’t normally do this but I’m ordered to do this because of that letter,” said her mother. I’m going to leave you a nanny to watch over you. I’ll be gone for the next few days. The nanny will be arriving soon so you do as your told and I’ll see you in a few days. *she leaves*
“I hope the nanny is truly nice,” thought Sweetheart. Maybe she’ll take me to fun places like Ponyville City. I’ve always wanted to see how the rebuild of those Siamese Towers is going. *the nanny comes in the door*
“You’re Sweetheart, yes?” asked the nanny, Wilma.
“Yes I am,” answered Sweetheart.
“Good, then that means I’m in the right house,” replied Wilma. What on earth are you wearing, young lady?
“What’s wrong with it?” asked Sweetheart.
“It’s showing your lack of proper nutrition and diet,” answered Wilma. I’m signing you up for a gym membership at Silver’s Gym across town right now so you can get rid of that unsightly belly fat.
“Don’t you know that you should accept who a person is and not try to change it?” asked Sweetheart.
“You will do as your told,” said Wilma. I will be taking you over to that gym every day until you are fit and each meal will be healthy foods and none of that slop you’ve been eating.
“This is truly not what I had in mind,” thought Sweetheart sadly. [Later that day…] *the doorbell rings*
“What is it?” asked Wilma angrily.
“Can Sweetheart come out and play?” asked Melody.
“Absolutely not, she is being punished right now,” said Wilma. Now go home. *she closes the door*
“What a rotten pony,” said Starlight. We should see Sweetheart from her room. *they go to her window*
“She looks miserable,” said Melody. *Sweetheart sees them and opens the window*
“Sorry I can’t truly be with you guys,” said Sweetheart. My nanny decided to punish me for showing fat.
“Something must be done here,” said Melody. That nanny must be taught a lesion for treating our friend like this. [The next day, at Silver’s gym…]
“Faster, Sweetheart,” said Wilma. You need to lose all of this fat. *Sweetheart pedals faster as Melody and the gang peer through the window*
“No way, she’s forcing Sweetheart to lose the weight,” said Starlight.
“Now I know something must be done,” said Bright Eyes. Sweetheart should be allowed to be fat if she wants to. I have a plan. *she whispers in the other ponies’ ears* [Back at home…]
“When we get back in side, Sweetheart, it’s dinner time,” said Wilma. *she reaches into her pocket but there are no keys* Where are my keys?
“Are these your keys?” asked Bright Eyes.
“You miserable pony, hand them over!” bellowed Wilma.
“You’ve been treating our friend Sweetheart badly,” said Bright Eyes. We don’t feel we have the reason to give you your keys back. Look at what you’ve done to her just at that gym. She’s extremely tired and you’re forcing her to lose weight, even if she’s happy as is.
“I’m reporting you to the police for theft!” said Wilma.
“There’s one problem, the phone’s inside,” said Bright Eyes. *Wilma scowls*
“I’ll teach all of you!” yelled Wilma.
“You’re the one that needs to be taught on how to accept ponies for who they are,” said Melody.
“I don’t need to argue with the likes of you, I’m going inside!” said Wilma angrily. *the ponies walk in front of Sweetheart*
“We still have the keys,” said Bright Eyes. We’re not going anywhere until you leave Sweetheart alone. *Wilma scowls, then gets back in the car and drives away as Sweetheart’s mother arrives*
“Sweetheart, I heard the entre thing, I’m sorry for giving you that nasty nanny,” said her mother.
“I’m just truly happy you’re back, mom,” said Sweetheart wearily.
