>The azure unicorn relaxes and lets her body fall against you softly.
>”Trixie… has waited a long time to hear somepony say that.”
“It’s true, Trixie.”
>She snuggles closer against you.
>”Trixie knows. Trixie can tell.”
“And I don’t think I’m the only one. Gilda too. And I’m sure there’s a lot of ponies out there who want you that you just don’t know yet.
>”Trixie… has made many enemies. In her effort to be acknowledged. Trixie isn’t sure that they will all be so forgiving.”
“Maybe not, but you’ll never know if you don’t try. I know it seems dark… not having a goal, and not knowing your destiny. But there’s still a path for you, Trixie. Even if you can’t see it. And I’ll be happy to hold your hoof if you’re scared.”

>”Guess you pulled it off.”
“You probably heard her yelling, huh? But I think she’s okay now. Everything’s gonna be fine.”
>Gilda looks around nervously before settling in next to you.
>”... it’s warmer out here.”
>”Only of the warmth. It’s not like I care about doing something like that.” she lies.
“Ah, I see. Feel free to steal my warmth if you like.”
>Gilda puts her large feathery wing around you.
>”You better not move in your sleep and bump my leg or something.”
“I’ll keep that in mind while I’m unconscious.”
>”Fair warning, asshole.”
>”Quit acting like a jackass…” she mutters as she snuggles against you.
>She falls asleep soon after, as do you.
>The three of you slept peacefully all night...
