[Sweet Apple Acres] 100 Country Kisses (2 Kisses Left! Line Now Closed!)

Recommended Posts

The Prince chuckled to himself as he waited in line, watching in turn as each of his friends took their turn...sampling Apples, so to speak. It was such a cute and quaint idea. If something like this worked for something like selling apples, perhaps something similar could be done for charities back home instead. It was certainly something to ponder over. But if it made the old bags of bones back home flip their wigs, it'd certainly be worth the time and effort that went into it. And they could hardly speak out against it if it was for charity now could they? They would have to thank the Apples for this idea later, but for now it seemed it was finally Lián's moment in line. A smile gracing his face and a nod of his head to Yanhua. "There's nothing to worry about, my friend. No hearts will be broken to day, of that I'm certain." after all, it seemed Apple Bloom was already occupied entertaining someone to b-

...

Well scratch that. As the Prince arrived up at Applejack's stand, before he could even open his mouth to speak, the filly was there in a flash. Any faster and he was almost certain she could have broken the sound barrier. Impressive to say the least. The stallion would smile and politely give a little bow in greeting, brushing back a stray lock of his mane as he stood back straight. "Good afternoon Apple Bloom, I happened upon a flyer for this today on a little walk of mine." he'd say patting the pocket where just the corner of the flyer could still be seen. "I had planned on stopping by to visit regardless while I was here, but this seemed such an interesting concept I decided to forego other plans I had thought of to make a trip here. I'm quite glad I did, it gave me a chance to see some dear friends of mine while they were here." Lián would motion towards Feng and Yanhua making their way down the road before turning his smile back to Apple Bloom. "And a chance to see you and your family, of course. But yes!~ Apologies, I'm taking up your time. I can't claim to be the most knowledgeable in what apples are the sweetest. So I shall trust your judgement, Apple Bloom. I'll take a bushel of whatever your favourite apple is."

Apple Bloom giggled to herself as the Prince talked, his dreamy accent filling her head full of fluff and goof. His scales, his dressin', the way he moved and looked and talked- her heart would be aflutter if it weren't hammering, her eyes would be glazed back if they weren't fixated like a hawk. But for all of her strength and ability in many ways she wasn't gonna be able to fulfill all of his requests on account of one simple fact: Despite her best efforts, she was losing the fight with Applejack's head. And even if she was winning, she'd certainly lose if she moved her hoof to get the apples. She clearly hadn't thought this through... "Well, uhh, how 'bout some nice-" she began before Applejack changed tactics.

 

She pulled her head back entirely. With nothing bracing against her back legs anymore, Apple Bloom fell behind the podium back legs first with a wild, "Woooo- SPLAT!". Applejack immediately stepped up. "Cool yourself down there a spell, Apple Bloom. Yer goin' off more than a lion in season," she said to the now-muddy smaller apple down below, putting one of her legs on her for emphasis. She then looked up at the Prince. "Mighty sorry about that. She certainly has a bit of an attraction ta ya," Applejack replied with a nervous laugh before she started collecting the last of her Fuji apples. "These might remind you of yer homeland, Prince Lee-Ann. Mighty happy ta see you drop on by!" She said over the sounds of a struggling Apple Bloom, who come Tartarus or high water was going to kiss her Prince.

Lián chuckled softly, Apple Bloom's determination was certainly admirable. The mischievous side of the Prince did wonder, just how strong that determination was. Perhaps it would be fun to bide a little bit of time. Nodding his head the qilin smile. "I quite happy to have been able to stop by as well. It's been far too long since we all last spoke." he would say as he looked the apples over with a polite tilt of his head "Ah, they do look rather delicious! I have to admit I've been interested in learning more. What can you tell me about this particular..." the stallion rubbed his chin in thought, searching for the right word. "The term is cultivar right? The terminology escapes me but it has had me rather fascinated." Truthfully, this wasn't a lie. The stallion liked to learn about whatever he could, he wanted to speak with the rest of the girls again at some point to learn more about their trade as well, but right now Lián thought it the easiest method in which to give Apple Bloom that little bit of extra time. It was all far too humorous.



((Sorry for the terribly long delay, and terribly short post ;3; ))

She recognized stalling for time when she saw it, especially since she reckoned he had to know at least a little about Fujis. Nonetheless, she humored him as she picked up a Fuji as if she were holding an ancient relic and describing it to a class. "Fuji apples? Well, they're one of tha sweetest apples we grow, though still has some tartness to it," she started off, struggling a little more to keep her sister pinned. "It's a bi-colored apple an' has fine-grain, creamy white flesh-" the struggle only increased- "an-an' one heck of a juicy, ultra-sweet bite that makes you think of freshly pressed apple juice," she said as she looked down once and frowned, though it was kicked off her face quickly. "They're nice an' crunchy too!" She said with a forced smile, putting the Fuji back into the bushel and deciding she'd had enough of this tomfoolery. 

 

Applejack heaved a sigh and let her leg up, the smaller Apple filly scrambling out of the mud messily as she tried to get up. Applejack didn't have the willpower for this foolishness now. She just wanted to sell some dang apples and make this day a booming business bonanza but she couldn't account for a little filly's heart-throbbing crush. He was a handsome fellow, she'd give her that. "Alright Apple Bloom, you want ta make a fool of yerself, make a fool of yerself," she said as she bent down, whispering angrily to her sister. "This is tha definition of bad business and yer makin' us look like a bunch of rascals and nincompoops," she said as she stepped back. "But you can go on ahead and do it. When yer done though, wash up. Ah reckon Ah'm not needin' yer services tha rest of tha night," Applejack finished before turning back to her customer.

 

"Sorry for the hassle. I think she wants ta get this kiss! Ah'll take tha bits an' yer bushel is ready an' waitin'," Applejack said with a nervous laugh. It didn't take long for Apple Bloom, messed up mane and mud caked body and all smiles, to pull her way up to the stand, nearly face to face with the Prince. She tried to give her best half-lidded expression but it was hard with her giggling and blushing.

The Prince chuckled once again and smiled, offering Applejack an understanding nod "Those will do just fine, they sound quite delicious." Lián dug into a pocket of his robe, fetching out a small satchel of bits that he carried on his person, he knew better than to carry too much money anyway, being made to wear his robes was already enough to make him stand out, he didn't need to be carrying all the bits he could on him. Laying the bits down on the table, Lián smiled at the sisters, it seemed that Apple Bloom's determination had won out today. Perhaps Applejack was getting soft? That wasn't really for the qilin to say though. Just to think. It was all in good fun anyway.
 

Before Apple Bloom would get her 'hard earned reward' so to speak, Lián pulled a hoofkerchief from another pocket of his robe, using it to clean the mud and muss away from her face and mane. With a little flick to the ground the hoofkerchief was left clean and sparkling as it was when he withdrew it. "It never hurt to keep one of those on hoof, never know when the need might arise." he would offer with a playful wink as he tucked the cloth back away into his robe.
 

Placing a hoof under Apple Bloom's chin, the prince would gently steady her head. "Easy there, shake too much and one might miss the mark ahah." and with that, the stallion leaned in and pressed his lips to Apple Bloom's in a sweet, tender little kiss. One that, for the filly, probably felt like it lasted a lifetime. But surely was only a few moments. Pulling back, the prince smiled and dipped his head. "There we are, I hope that was up to your standards, Miss Apple Bloom." he'd say with a playful grin.

Apple Bloom was quaking with excitement internally, trying her darnedest to make sure it didn't show but failing all the same to the extent that one would swear she had the slightest of shivers due to a cold wind blowing through. It wasn't that- and when he washed her face off, she let out a low tittering giggle that she didn't have much control over. That was just the start. He then reached over and cupped her chin oh so gently and steered her into the promised land, laying down a warm, brief kiss that may as well have lasted a thousand moons for the filly. She imagined a lifetime of bliss in those moments- courtship, dating, marriage, foals, becoming Queen, the whole nine hooves and then some- before he pulled away, asking if it was good for her. She opened up her mouth to talk but all of her blood had rushed to her face to form the harshest and reddest blush in the history of the artform. She swooned, spoke to herself unintelligibly, and fell backwards behind the stand, plopping once more into the mud.

 

A successful day indeed.


Applejack once more stepped over her sister's twitching form and collected the bits, shuffling them into her growing war chest of business success. "Thank ya kindly, Prince. Ah hope yer bushel treats ya right," she said with a smile, pleased at how the day had gone. Princes and Princesses, the paupers and the downtrodden and everycreature in between. It had been a real treat, a real blast, and it wasn't ending just yet. "Ah hope you have a good'n, Prince Lee-Ann!" She said as she waved him off. It had been pretty exciting and doubly so for APple Bloom, who was still twitching in the mud below her. Applejack shook her head. "Get back in tha house and clean yerself up. Yer done for tha day, sugarcube," she said barely above a whisper, trying to hide a giggle. Yep, she was a mess. Funny to see, annoying to deal with.

 

She cleaned off the top and rolled her shoulders. "Next!"

                                                                          Glitterbanner.png

 

Moonlight trotted confidently up to the stand, laughing as she did so. "Well, that was totally expected. Is Apple Bloom even breathing down there? Abby, deep breaths. No prince likes it when you, like, pass out on top of them," she said as she arrived, two hooves in the stand. "Hey there cuz. How's your big business day? Kissing, like, everypony and everycreature in the region, eh? Just for business or is this a plan of yours?" She winked, "secret's totally safe with me, filly."

"Ahh. I do seem to have that effect on creatures now and again." Lián said with a playful little grin before blowing out a small cloud of smoke to carry his bushel of apples by his side. "Thank you, Applejack, I'm certain they'll be wonderful. I do hope that the rest of your year is as prosperous as this, and that we get to see one another again soon. Perhaps over some apple tea next time." the qilin gave a proper bow to both Applejack and to the new arrival as well, stepping aside and leaning over the side of the counter. "It was lovely seeing you again as well, Apple Bloom. Until we meet again!" with that, the prince gave one last wave and began ambling his way back on down the trail. From somewhere in the trees a sharp ear might be able to hear the slightest of rustling. But perhaps that was just the breeze...

It had been a good day. Applejack had avoided disaster and made profit in a situation that could have been a loss due to mismanagement. But her and her family's wits always kept them afloat, even when it required heartstrings to be pulled. The orange mare had sold apples by the bushel, selling out of nearly all the excess apples they had. It was a good thing the remaining inventory would not be heavy, as she was getting tired by the late afternoon burn of her muscle's aches and pains. But she was a strong one. Despite her years on the farm, this aging pony was not going to easily let the labor she endured every day on the farm for several decades keep her from fulfilling her apple sale duties all the way until the end of the day. But thanks to her depleting energy level, that moment was coming to a close very soon.

 

The line for apples and kisses had disappeared. The citizens of Equestria could only handle so much apple kissing, but she figured more would come the next day to assume the sale would continue. Fortunately for her chapped lips and the hearts of her family, the sale would not continue tomorrow and hopefully never again. Applejack started packing up some of the non-essentials in order to make end of day routine checks easier. But any remaining customers still had time before the farm pony's lips would be locked away forever.

 

Her back was turned when Moonlight stepped up to the stand. She overheard the pink unicorn remark on Apple Bloom's heart which by all recognition seemed to have floated off to space. Applejack turned forward. "Heh heh, yeah. She'll get over it. Business has been great." Applejack chuckled at her cousin's assumptions and teases. Word must have gotten to the school where undoubtedly several hundred teenage creatures expressed how hilarious they thought an applekiss might be, but then internally daydreamed about kissing their crushes in the school's halls. "Ain't no secret ah'm afraid. Just sellin' apples. It's always about apples." If she needed to, Applejack could express her ability to make Rainbow Dash do whatever she wanted with a cold mug of cider, and the fact that she named her first son after the famed zany apple variety that grew miraculously on the farm. It was always about apples. Always.

 

"What about you? Shouldn't you be swoonin' over that coltfriend of yours?" She chuckled at the joke she had just thought of. "Did you...  did you run out of things to ask him to do for you? Heh heh heh." Implying that Remington had Moonlight wrapped around his hoof was an inside joke Applejack had with Moonlight, and she always like to think that he was practically a slave to her unmistakable beauty.

Moonlight giggled as her cousin remarked that Apple Bloom would get over it. She'd have to, right? Prince Lian was a morsel and a half but he lived so far away and with so many layers of society between them that it was a dead-end. Apple Bloom should consider her stars crossed and lucky clovers rained on and cash out her chips now. Not many ponies got a little kiss from a hunk like that. "Hopefully. I mean, it'd be, like, a shame if she just laid there for the rest of her life," she said as she looked around. Apple Bloom was slowly pulling herself up, which made Moonlight smile. "At least she's still conscious."

 

Soon enough the topic turned from Apple Bloom's leg-quaking crush on a Princeling to Moonlight's lip-smacking relationship with a fellow student. She smiled broadly, her tail flicking around in smooth waves. He was a charmer who didn't have to try and a piece of loving who didn't need any conditioning. Of course, that didn't mean she didn't try to get some TLC out of him. What was a coltfriend for if not backrubs and hoofrubs? "Oh cousin, don't you worry. I've got, like, a million things I can have him do. I'm nothing if not, like, playfully high maintenance, right?" The not so playfully high maintenance filly said as she winked. "Besides, I make sure he swoons over me. The right scents and moves, you know it!"

 

She flipped her mane out before returning to the business of the day. She could stand her, gabbing with her cousin all day about her cute coltfriend, but she was here on business. Apple business. And if there was one business that she knew her cousin would respect, it was apple business! "Anywho, well, I need your help," she said as she leaned in, "and only you can help. I need your, like, super apple brain to help me out. I need a bushel of apples that will totally work as great snack foods and can handle, like, being totally left out on a desk for a while. Also, something other than red skin. So, whatcha got goin' for me, eh?"

What a mare she had grown into. Moonlight was a catch, even Applejack was smitten by her ability to be an amazing cousin. It seemed like yesterday she was showing an orange foal around the farm to do chores that would nearly kill them. Most ponies got word that magic help turn this pony into the dazzler she is now, but Applejack knew good that hard-workin' tough-lovin' apple-eatin' earth pony magic had a huge role to play in who she became. And she was still so young, too. How many more healthy sore muscles could Applejack squeeze out of Moonlight before the age of time took them both too far to play that traditional farm pony game?

 

And such was a pony who matured before Applejack's eyes, Moonlight had places to be and boyfriends to cuddle with, she meant business. "No red skin apples?" She looked at her mostly depleted inventory. "I have a bushel of golden delicious, but too many of them got bruises. I have about half a bushel of ginger golds. How about I jus' take out the bruises golden delicious and give you a mix bushel." Applejack didn't hesitate for Moonlight to agree with her. In the event the pretty unicorn was not satisfied with such a suggestion, Applejack would find ways for her to conform to her sales pitch. She began tossing golden delicious apples that had been bruised and partially smashed into a spare bucket, and tossed the rest of the golden delicious apples that would survive a good week on the shelf with the ginger golds. "If you ever can't tell the two apart, ginger golds are a brighter yella and they have a more tart taste to them than golden delicious."

 

Applejack finished piling up the bushel of apples, trying to make it as generous as possible for her favorite cousin. "Why do you need so many apples? Do you really need to study that much? Or is this for two ponies?" Applejack smirked. "You know, I learned form Rainbow Dash that pegasus ponies don't burn as many calories as you think they would. You wouldn't want to make the poor guy fat feeding him apples now would you?"

You could put age on the pelt of the workhorse but the moment Applejack opened her mouth she had all the youthful energy and power that she had all that time ago when Moony had first come to the farm for a stint from Manehattan. Moon leaned over the counter and stretched herself on it as she spoke with her cousin, more comfortable around her than almost anycreature else in the world. Almost.
"Yeah, no red skin. Not for, like, a big reason. Just want something a scosche  different and red isn't really in season right now, ya know?" She said as she watched her cousin go about the difficult job of satisfying her order. Difficult, if only because Moonlight could be rather demanding. Well, when it didn't involve her cousin. She was more easygoing than not with her.

 

"Mix and match is fine. I'm not gonna strangle you for, like, not giving me a pure bushel," she said as she toyed with her mane a little, inspecting it for any split-ends. Those were the worst, uggh. She didn't get very many of them because she knew how to take care of herself just right but it was a possibility that struck fear into her heart. As she did so she heard her cousin discuss the difference between the types of apples she was giving to Moonlight. Ginger Golds? It wasn't one of Sweet Apple Acres' major cultivars. It wasn't that well known and it wasn't anypony's favorite, as far as she knew. It was a good apple- Applejack didn't grow any bad ones- but not one she thought would be seen out here. Talk about scrapping the bottom of the barrel! 


"Ginger Golds? Well, like, I guess it has been a busy day. Can you even feel your mouth or, like, is it all numb and stuff?" She giggled. It didn't stop as Applejack started giving her advice on her to keep her pegasus healthy and fit. Like most birds, they needed a lot of upkeep. She knew all about keeping him up, but she appreciated the thought anyway.
"Jackie, don't worry about my pegasus. I can get him to burn a lot of calories. I have my ways," she winked, her horn sparking as if electrified. Between her and coltfriend there was nothing but sparks. Not that it was just Remington who was getting a taste of her apples. She was nothing if not a generous sort and she would ensure that he didn't get her mixed bushel alone.
"It's for whoever comes by. Remmy, my friends, whoever wants to, like, stop by Castle Le Grande Moon," she smiled. Her dorm room was a party zone for all the cool creatures after all! She dug through her saddlebag.
"Five bits, right?"

"My lips are fine and healthy, thank you very much." Applejack rolled her eyes as the fancy unicorn gave her best Rarity impression. Applejack could understand the persnickety perspective of a pretty pony like Moonlight, but she knew who the real fashionista pony in Equestria was. "It's just that you asked for no apples with red skin, and here I thought you liked things with red skin." She punned towards Moonlight as the winking competition continued. Having fallen in love with a pegasus pony herself, Applejack knew that there was an interesting element involved in having a relationship that close with a pony with wings. Something about the idea that they could fly away from you but don't, was internally one of the most romantic things an earth pony could feel. Or unicorn, in Moony's case.

 

"Five bits is the fairest price for the fairest pony." Applejack leaned into Moonlight's attitude. While waiting for Moonlight to dig her coltfriend's money out of her purse, Applejack slyly expressed, "Where would you like me to kiss you? I'm trying to find a spot where Remington hasn't already done the deed, but I'm having trouble figuring out where that would be."
