"Ooh, that's just devious," she says with a note of appreciation.>>500736
She lets out a grunt and her mane flares a bit, nearly sending her hat off her head as a wake ripples through the pool of water holding the apples.
Well, they were apples before, anyway.
The ponies surrounding the pool scream in terror and start backing or running away as the apples start crawling over the edge of the tub while Harley laughs raucously before squishing you to her side, once again messing up your mane and fake wings.
Nightmare Night! Get to mess with people and nobody says a thing!"
You can't help but feel happy when you're squished up against her like this, feeling her laugh as she hugs you with appreciation. It's a nice feeling.>>500740
You didn't notice before, but she looks like your standard, run of the mill, Earth pony. Other than the costume and how she looks as an individual, you mean. How'd she do that if she doesn't have a horn to cast magic from?
Without an immediate answer, you shrug, filing the question away for later. She said she'll be here for years, right? Plenty of time.
As her laughter subsides, Harley lets you go, fixing your wings and helmet again with a mumbled "Sorry," though the smile never leaves her face and you can see twinkling in her beautiful green eyes.
"Alright, what say we get our picture taken?"
You nod as she hits a bell on the railing, and a tired looking pony dressed up as the Frankenpone monster wanders onto the balcony with a camera.
"Say 'Scream,'" he says as he raises the camera.
Harley puts a hoof around your shoulders, careful not to mess up your outfit this time.
