Pinkie Pie knelt down in front of a small gray stone. This stone was covered with variously colored streamers and had some oddly shaped balloons tied to it. She nudged forward a small box covered in green wrapping paper and tied together with a brilliant pink bow.

"Happy birthday, Grandma Pie. It's...been a year since I saw you last, huh?" She blushed. "I kept meaning to visit more often, like, during Christmas, but... Well, I've been getting closer to this new pony, Twilight. She's really not much of a people person, and was having her first Christmas here. So, I helped make sure she didn't spend it alone. Like you taught me."

She scuffed at the ground with her front hoof, eyes downcast. "I... I usually have something to say. You know? I mean, I'm still talking, but I faster. Heaven nice? Are you and Grandpa having a good time?" She smiled. "You're probably playing a prank on the others up there right now, aren't you?"

"...listen. Remember Rainbow Dash? That awesome flying pony? Well...she and I are dating now." She blushed. "You never made me feel like a freak about that. So, I thought you should be the first to know."

She leaned forward and kissed it gently. "Happy Birthday. I love you, Gran'ma."
Pinkie Pie celebrates a relative's birthday.

This is really sweet. By the way, it still says "Grandman" at the beginning.

Oh. I didn't see that. Thank you.

Second paragraph should say grandma, not grandman.

I think it would be better if you slowly revealed at the end that she was talking to her dead grandma, like at the beginning imply that she was just visiting her at her house but at the end reveal she's at her gravestone.

Fixed it. I meant it to say Gran'ma.

And perhaps. But I got some positive feedback for the original version, so I decided to keep it close to the original. Thank you for the critique, though!
