You tell her she can keep them, and she thanks you for your patience.>>499026
You ask for a transcription, and her horn flares with energy once more before suddenly fizzling.
She sighs, sipping at her tea again before explaining, "Whatever is up with the magic in this page, it won't let me just zap a copy of it. It'll have to be done by hoof. Or hand, rather."
Her horn glows again, though it's not acting on any object you can see.
You hear a faint yelp and suddenly get the idea, just before a startled looking Spike is wheeled around the corner in a purple aura.
"Spike, I need you to make a hand copy of this immediately for our friend here-"#Twilight and Spike status: Friends
"He's done a very good thing in bringing something to my attention but he wants to be kept in the loop."
"Alright, alright," Spike says, "Just put me down already."
He lands on his feet with a gentle thud, pulling an ink pen and scroll from seemingly nowhere before intently scribbling down a transcription.
You encourage Twilight that you don't think it's anything too serious, and she smiles.
"Well, that's yet to be determined. But I thank you for bringing it to my attention."
Suddenly she yawns, and you find yourself echoing the action.
"Ah, chamomile kicking in," Twilight mumbles, pawing at an eye again, "Been up for too long, need to go to sleep."
She smiles in your direction before getting up out of her seat, yawning again and stretching her legs out a bit. You try your best not to stare at her backside from this angle….
"I'm sorry to be so rude, but I fear I can't stay up any longer. Please, show yourself out when Spike is finished. Unless you'd rather sleep in the library tonight…"
Your face flushes and she giggles.
"Just kidding. Get home safely, okay?"
You nod as she heads up the stairs in her library to her personal section.
Not long after, Spike hands you a transcription of the lyric sheet.
"Sorry that took so long. Blinked once or twice and thought it said something different."
A chill runs down your spine as you take the sheet from him.
Just what exactly are you getting into?
Trying to put it out of mind, you thank Spike for his efforts.
"Yeah, yeah, whatever. No worries. Just try to show up during the day next time. I'm beat."
You apologize, but he just waves you off with a small smile as he escorts you to the door.
"Take care there, Cobalt," he says when you head outside.
You tell him you will, and head home, not quite sure how to feel about the turn of events.
At least you spent the day with some cute mares.#End of Fourth Session: Festival Day
