GAME INFO: The fire that was heating the cauldron appears to have died out a while ago. They must have eaten dinner several hours before you arrived.>>229948>>229949
Seeing the apple cores on the table, you figure it's the only food that's even potentially edible.
"It's gonna have to do. Hold your nose if you have to."
Sweetie Belle looks disgusted. She picks the little basket up off of the table and sets it on her back, knocking a plate off of the table. As it hits the floor, you freeze up.
The Diamond Dogs don't seem to have taken notice. One speaks up, though he's behind the column. "What was that?!"
"Miners, idiot! Don't try to cheat!" You hear a quick slap followed by a whimper.
Sweetie finally breathes again, steadily trotting the little basket back to her friends. You follow close behind as the two of you get back behind the column.
Applebloom and Scootaloo look equally disappointed. "Ughh… I think I lost my appetite…"
"C'mon, guys. It's all I could find on short notice. You have to eat something…"
Applebloom looks at Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo, then picks up one of the apple cores. She chomps into it with a look of utter disgust. "Ugghh… ohhh… that was gross. No more, please…" She rubs her hoof against her tongue.
Sweetie Belle looks into the basket with perfect disgust. "Do I have to?"
"Just one. You need to eat something."
She picks up an apple core that looks relatively less brown than the others. She chomps into it, but immediately spits it back out. "Gross gross gross! Blech! There was a big wad of spit on it! Ewwwwewww!"
You cover her mouth quickly. Scootaloo and Applebloom follow suit, placing their hooves over her face. The game across the room has suddenly grown dead quiet.
Sweetie Belle whimpers softly.
