As you drip dry in the dim light across the expanse of water from Sweetie Belle, you realize that it's nearly around dinner time. Though you don't feel hunger, you've always been considerate of your friends. In fact, you almost seem to think about it moreso than you would if you still possessed the urge to sate an appetite.
You look back at Sweetie Belle and Applebloom. "Hey… I know we're exploring right now… but are you guys hungry or anything? Your wounds are bothering you, are they?"
Sweetie Belle rubs her tummy. "Um… I don't really feel THAT hungry right now…"
Applebloom shakes her head. "Ah feel fine… hoof's hurtin' a bit, but Ah'm alright."
Scootaloo just drip dries from your back. "I just want to explore. I'm good."
With your back to the fork in the tunnel, you can hear rushing water behind you. You're not sure which tunnel it is coming from because of the reverberation. The low ceiling above the watery path here makes it impossible to see too far down the path you came from.>>206323>>206330>>206334
"Alright… let's get going then. I'm going to come back across with Scootaloo. Applebloom!"
She nods. "Yeah?"
"You jump on top of Scootaloo and carry the Lamp above the water. That way we can get it across without it getting wet."
"Roger, Raisin!" Applebloom takes the Lamp from Sweetie Belle's mouth.
"Uh.. what about me?" Sweetie Belle cinches up her saddlebags.
"You should be able to swim across just fine. The current doesn't look bad here…"
After you discuss the plan briefly, you dive back into the watery trail and make your way back over to Sweetie Belle and Applebloom. Scootaloo pulls in tight, holding her breath. You follow the Lamp light back across the small, watery path. It still feels amazing to 'breathe' while under the water… like this is all some sort of weird dream.
In a matter of moments, you make your way back up on dry land.
