> Your trot back to your quarters is dogged by lingering thoughts of what Cadance had talked about.
> Both physically - hooves dragging with each step - and mentally, your thoughts laden with the knowledge of what she had just told you.
> Just a few months ago, your allegiance to Anonymous was purely private and personal.

"I..."
> Your eyes fall on the tiny cake sitting in the middle of the room's table at the same time that Rumble replies:
> "It's your birthday, you silly featherhead!"
> Birthday.
> Yours.
> It was, wasn't it?
> And you had totally forgotten.
> But not your friends.
> They hadn't let you down.
"You guys, I..."
