"Well, I can see she's done a great deal for you, Randall. I'm surprised you didn't bring her to the dinner."
> "Ah, no need. There was plenty else to be done there..."
"...and besides, some of the other guests were... well, I rather doubt all of them had the best interests of their ponies at heart."
> You crack a grin, then remember that he can't actually see it and add a small laugh.
"Yes, I noticed this too... but business demands we hold our tongues and rub shoulders sometimes, no matter how unpleasant it is."
> "Indeed..."
"That woman Catherine, for instance. You know she actually suggested I have Cadance mated to one of her stallions?"
> Posey looks rather glum at that statement, but it is Randall who bursts out:
> "Really?"
"Yes, after our tour. Right in front of Cadance..."
> "That woman, honestly... I think she feels her ponies are just like children she never had. Except, of course, she can 'give them' families. It's honestly rather disturbing to me."
"Mmm-hmm. Her... enthusiasm was surprising. Though, Gregory - Gregory Barker, you know him? Runs an auction and training facility for ponies?"
> "I haven't met him personally, although I understand he is a significant part of the investment in your operation now."
> An understatement, you think.
> Someone of Randall's experience wouldn't have neglected to research his investors.
"Ah. Well, he apparently got along much better with Cadance. Surprising, considering what he does - but I suppose it's good to know that there's someone else out there thinking straight."
> "I'll keep it in mind as we go forward."
"I'd appreciate it. If Cadance didn't mind him, I think I'll be happy with him too."
> Standing with a heavy groan, you stretch out your back - a chorus of pops as relief issues from your spine.
"Well, I think it's time to let go of work for the day."
> Now it is Randall's chance to crack a grin.
