[At Sweetheart's house…]
"Gosh…..I never thought….these would be…so tight," strained Sweetheart as she struggled to get her shorts on.
"Are you sure Ms Hackney will approve?" asked Teddy.
"I don't think they'll truly come off now," protested Sweetheart.
"They look great on you anyway," remarked Teddy.
"We're going to be late for the bus anyway. Come on, Teddy," added Sweetheart struggling to keep her shorts up.[On the bus…]
"You must've outgrown those, Sweetheart. Don't they feel uncomfortable?" noticed Starlight.
"Not to mention, you seem to have trouble keeping them up. We're starting to see more than what those shorts seem to be able to cover up," added Bright Eyes.
"I was in a hurry not to miss the bus. I just truly hope Ms Hackney won't mind or even notice," explained Sweetheart.
"Well good luck with all that," warned Melody. [In school…]
"Who would like come up to the board and fill in the missing correct word in this sentence?" asked Hackney.
"I'll go, Ms Hackney," replied Bright Eyes.
"Thank you, Bright Eyes but why don't we let one of your classmates that doesn't often get the chance to go to the board? How about you, Sweetheart?" suggested Hackney.
"Yes Ms Hackney," answered Sweetheart. *She heads to the board, still trying to keep her shorts up, then sits down when she finishes*
"Well done, Sweetheart," rewarded Hackney. *Sweetheart again pulls up her shorts in vain*
"I'll do the next sentence, Ms Hackney," agreed Melody.
"Why thank you, Melody. Quickly though because we're short on time," stated Hackney. *The clock chimes 3PM just after Melody finishes and the students rush out but Hackney stops Sweetheart*
"Sweetheart, I need to talk to you about those shorts of yours. It seems they were giving you trouble all day today, especially for giving the class the occasional sneak peek from behind you if you will. I'd suggest not wearing them again not only for your sake but for everyone's sake. I know you ponies love your weight and wish to show it off but I think this might be taking it a bit far," said Hackney somewhat sternly.
"I know, Ms Hackney. I truly was in a rush this morning to not miss the bus and I guess in the irony of the situation, I grabbed the one pair of shorts that prevents me from rushing at all. It won't happen again, I promise," replied Sweetheart.
"I'm glad you understand, Sweetheart. We can keep this between you and me, okay?" added Hackney.
"Okay, Ms Hackney," agreed Sweetheart before leaving. [Later that day…]
"Not too surprised she caught you for it because it is a rare sight for us to show that anywhere. Guess we all now know where our limits of wearing tight clothes are," said Starlight.
"Teddy seemed to be having a good time with it, though," said Melody.
"No surprise there either since he loves Sweetheart about as much as she loves him. We all remember him passing out yesterday after all," remarked Starlight.
"At least no one here made it truly embarrassing," said Sweetheart.
"We'd never do that, Sweetheart, or at least we'd try not to. Almost reminds me of when my shorts button flew of that one day. That was my embarrassing moment for the day but I think everyone learned from that not to laugh at someone not having a good day," answered Starlight.
"In some ways, I'd almost have been better off going in my underwear because that was at least going to stay on for a while but I'd never have the courage to do it and I think Ms Hackney wouldn't have liked it anyway," added Sweetheart.
"Ms Hackney does have rules about clothing but has lightened up to allow us to show off our weight," said Bright Eyes.
"Thank goodness for that Body Sock outfit. It really clings to my body well," said Bon Bon.
"I just hope that it doesn't cling too well in that you can't get it off or perhaps part of it "disappears" giving you that temporary wedgie," pondered Clover.
"That'd end up crossing the line for sure with Ms Hackney. Luckily though they're just long enough to go from hips to the start of our hooves so we should be fine," said Bright Eyes.
"My friends truly are comforting when things get tight," thought Sweetheart.
