"Now, go tell your daughter. I imagine she'll be just as overjoyed to hear as you are."
> No 'thank you' is given as Cadance has leaps from the bed and scampers from the room.
> But none is needed.
> Some things speak for themselves.
> Unfortunately, you can't remain resting forever:

> Megan is found curled up on her own bed with a book, and eagerly jumps up when you enter.
"Hey there, sweetheart! Heard you had a good bit of fun with Barnstorme- oof!"

> "Yeah. He really, really didn't like it there."
"Well. Sometimes, if you pull too hard on the bit it can hurt them. Imagine if you stuck something in your mouth and pulled too hard-"
