You formulate a cunning plan to scare the griffin away. "Alright, so here's what we're going to do…"
Raisin: Hayseed, Box of Quarter Sticks (x3), Fireworks x1, Sneezing Powder, Reinforced Shoes (Equipped), Royal Medallion (Equipped), Twisted Iron Rod (Equipped)
Applebloom: CMC Cape, Hammer, Money Bag + 100 Bits, Stompstarter
Scootaloo: CMC Cape, Stompstarter, Wake-Me-Up Dust
Sweetie Belle: CMC Cape, Baby Blue Sapphires x10, Nails, Lamp Oil, Spool of Rope + Lamp (equipped)
"Alright… now what?" Applebloom helps you get the last of your supplies exchanged, tucking the Box of Quarter Sticks neatly into one of your pockets.
"I'm going to ignite this Raging Rooster right next to the creep. That'll send him running."
Scootaloo nods. "There's no way he'll stick around to listen to it! That thing's deafening!" She whispers excitedly.
"Lastly… you guys just stay in hiding here. Don't jump out and don't make a sound. If something looks like it's going wrong, don't worry; I've got a plan here. Just sit tight and don't alert that… thing's attention, got it?"
"Right." The CMC quietly bump hooves with you as they nestle into the bush a bit better. They keep down low. "Cutie Mark Crusader Creature Startlers yay!"
Very cautiously, you step up and out of the bushes, taking a hard left to the opposite side of the schoolhouse. The creature seems to be crunching something in it's mouth still… the shaking of leaves follows with each bite. As you get closer, you can hear it whining, like it's not enjoying its meal.
As you approach the opposite side of the school, you feel your hoof break through the ground.
You wait and listen. The creature seems to preoccupied to notice the sound. The CMC remain dead silent, watching your every move.
