"Alright, Twi?" He turns to her and lifts his hands, showing that he's unarmed. "See the gloves? It's so that i don't hurt you. And see this?" He turns them, showing her the back of his hands, "it's your cutie mark, see?"
She looks at her flank and then at me, and it's with some hesitation that I nod. It's not like there's much of a choice here.
Sparkle nods at him, letting him approach and grab her head softly to look directly into her eyes, "Twi, what happened? Can you remember anything at all...?" He turns her head slightly, "Why aren't you an alicorn? What--" He snaps his head closer to hers, looking deep into her eyes, "Your magic is so much weaker than it should be."
"I--" Sparkle gulps, breathing quickly, "I don't know, b-but I feel so weak and I get tired so fast."
"Calm down, we can do this together," He says soothingly, brushing her mane with a palm, keeping her claws away from her neck. "Alright, we were in Surane, and Applejack was passing by it... first time in like a year we met her, took a photo and everything. Any of this sounds familiar?" He smiles, but she shakes her head, "Alright, and then..." His face darkens, "And there was a fight? And you... And I was fighting with something. Do you remember any of it?" She shakes her head again, seemingly almost in tears, "And then I..." He falls completely silent, furrowing his brow.
"What?" Ask Sparkle weakly.
"I... can't have died, right?" He touches his face, his chest, gulping. "I'd know if I was dead."
