In reply to: Fox 's message, "+coming back to reality+" on 16:05:37 05/03/03 Sat

“Yes, of course you are. Fox is right; I don’t know what came over us, myself in particular. I was wrong to have questioned your motives, why should they be anything less than honorable? I’m afraid my time spent away from here, from this place, Destiny Falls, has caused me more harm than good. I’m sure you can understand that. My perception and view of others has differed slightly over these past few years, from when I was a foal. As each day passes, and light gives way to darkness, I find myself becoming more and more suspicious. I had no good reason to accuse you just now, no good reason other than the want to protect myself from an invisible enemy. It matters little that even I, myself am unable to see it. This hideous, three-headed beast with its terrible roar, which lurks in the shadows, silently stalking its prey. It is after me this very moment; it has been after me for quite a while. It never stops chasing my through the corridors and narrow recesses of my mind, waiting for me to trip and stumble, or somehow falter so that it might make me its next meal. But miraculously I don’t, at least I have not. Still, one can’t rightly say what will happen in the near future. Nor, likewise, in the future in general. However, I will say this: life often makes it a habit of surprising us when we least expect it. I myself do not find this a comforting thought, but perhaps you will. You do not, did not, deserve an explanation. As is almost always the case, when warring, both parties, to some extent, must be blamed. I do not see it as being through either fault of our own, but it is indeed unfortunate that we were forced to quarrel, especially so early into our relationship. I will do the only courteous thing left to do, and ask you if you wish for me to leave? And if ‘yes’ is your answer than so be it. I certainly do not hold it against you. More importantly, I hope you will not thing of me as being anything less? And I in turn, will not think of you in such a manner. If you offer me an apology, I will accept it. If not, I will accept that too. We quarreled, I’m sorry, end of story. …And Fox, once again, is right but lets neither of us, let that get to his head.”

This time her smile was genuine, and not merely a wall put up in self-defense against the torrent of emotions, which one bombards someone whom they think ill of with. It was time now for both of them to stop playing these mind games; they obviously weren’t leading them anywhere, at least nowhere in particular. And nowhere she wished to be led. Hesitating only momentarily before she delved into self-assurance, what little she still possessed despite Magnolia’s former words, thoughts and actions, she waited to see what the mare would come up with next. And while doing so, she prepared herself to be stomped upon, knowing that given time her wounds would heal no matter how hard Magnolia retaliated. Only she hoped that there wouldn’t be a need to let them heal, and that Magnolia would accept and forgive her, as she had already accepted and forgiven her.
