"I can't try and enforce the way ponies think, Anonymous. If they actually damage the camp, damage your property - then I can stop them. But until then, trying to dictate what they think is just going to generate more resistance."
> Anonymous grimaces, nodding.
> "Sometimes, I admit, I wonder if giving you that kind of authority this early on was a good thing... but I'll hold you to that if it does become something bigger."
"I know."
> Besides, your reputation - and neck - were already on the line with the way these rumors were heading.
> "Good. In the meantime, you're going to have to put on another performance for me."

> Leaning back in his chair, Anonymous folds his arms and regards you neutrally.
> "I am, frankly, convincing them that the level of independence I've given you is a good thing. Some of them may not be inclined to be as... pleasant as I am towards you. Fortunately, as best as I can tell nobody has figured out that it was my shell company that acquired your daughter, so they can be kept well away from her."
> But would not be, the implied threat seems to say, if you would not be there to entertain them instead.
