> No, you'll not interfere in this.
> Shining Armor's response should be a telling insight into how the stallion saw things.
> If he answers at all.
> Right now he seems to be choking on any coherent reply, utterly failing to start speaking at all.
> With each moment that passes the tension in the air thickens.
> Shining's head, once held high and proud, sinks ever lower and the young stallion who'd approached him looks ever more despondent.
> "I - you -"
> Swallowing hard, Shining sighs.
> "Going back. I am going to be going back soon - you understand that, right?"
> "Going back?"
> The poor stallion barely seems to believe it.
> "Yes. Going back to my own master. I ran away, but I didn't escape him entirely. After this... I'm lucky he's willing to take me back."
> "But... I thought..."
> Grimacing as though he were in mortal pain, Shining tries to reach out with one hoof:
> "Please understand - I wish I could take you. I wish... but my Master can't take all of you."
> "What does he matter?! Then - if you can't take us now you'll come back, right? Another time! You did it once, you can do it again-"
> "I don't know. I really don't. Maybe. But... I'm not your hero."
> The coltish stallion begins to pull away, but Shining rises - stirring Flurry Heart who abruptly finds her pillow gone.
> "Don't you dare give up, okay? Don't you dare. I'm not your hero, but that's not how this works. You stand up for each other, understood? You keep each other strong, so that when it does happen you are strong and ready to go."
> Edging a little close to discussing rebellion there, but Shining cuts himself off before going any further.
> "I'm just... a foolish stallion who ran off with delusions that I could be a hero again. Run away with my daughter, and raise her to save everypony."
> "How can you tell me not to give up when you are-"
