>>26295122 oh well that's good. tell him there's no need to be nervous. tell whirlwind to keep an eye on venom. Don't let him leave. We'll be right back. Sit venom. Let's go to Hran and tell him we found a changeling.
>>26295247 "There's no need to be nervous!" you said immediately, trying to hold Venom still. "He's friendly! Yes, a friendly trader!" >Your plan was collapsing, this time you were to nervous to maintain the bubbly innocent tone you usually used when talking to your captive. >And he immediately noticed this. But for some reason he didn't take to the road, standning still but ready instead. "Good boy" you praised him for obeying, your voice gently and calmer than before. "I will get the vet and return to you soon, okay? Stay here." >>"Why the hell do you talk to him like that, Spring?" Whirl was completely clueless and he still was unwittingly ruining your disguise. "Is he crazy or something?" "By Celestia's Mercy, Whirl, shut up!" you moved your lips silently, hoping that he will understand. >He tilted his head, puzzled expression on his muzzle. >This is when Venom realized you were merely pretending to be crazy and suddenly started to gallop away. >You've heard a quiet click from the shadows and two ponies appeared in front of the wide open doors, ready to intercept the running captive. >Do you react in any way or do you prefer to let the events flow on their own?
