Sarim turns and takes the book from the table, "Bad poetry, but not THAT bad." "Applejack..." Rarity mouths for a second, "Her hoof wrote it?" "Another episode?" Sarim leaves it in the table. "I think?" She gives me an uncomfortable look, "Did you feel anything before it happened?" I shake my head distractedly, staring at the words. Honesty? Generosity? Isn't that me and Rarity? I write that question and pass it to Rarity, who considers it for a moment. "I hadn't considered who is this talking about, but I don't think it's any of us. Pinkie is anything but demeaning, this is all like a bad joke of what we are." She's silent. "If anything, this reminds me more of how I've seen Twilight act here." I don't know how to answer to that, and after a minute she stands from the table, whispering an 'Excuse me', and starts walking away from it. "Rarity?" Ludwig turns to her, worried, "Is there anything you need?" "Only a few minutes alone. Could you get them their clothings when they are dry?" Ludwig nods, and Rarity walks away from us in silence.
