"Rarity, do you remember what I told you about my family?">Rarity looked taken aback by the question.>She pressed a hoof against her mouth and pondered.>"Uhh, could you be more specific darling?" she said not sure where this was heading.>Maud looked directly at a gem growing from the ceiling of the cave.
