>>32304403>Be Silver.>You didn’t manage it.>You didn’t bring your sister back...
”I-I’m sorry, everyone.”>You say, sitting a few inches from the shadow briar patches.>They all look back at you.>Mystery Mint’s been worried ever since Sunset saw her using ｢Snakadaktal｣ for you.>But you asked Trixie to help recuit anyone she could to help you.>You thought it would be an all-out war, but your part was almost nothing.>You look up at Derpy.
“She, told me she can’t do it. I wanted to bring her back, but… I couldn’t do it. ｢Boulevard of Broken Dreams｣ can’t... stop what I did.”>The words come out hollow.>They don’t change the way she looks at you.>It’s not pity, just… shared hurt.
“The rest of you, go home. I’ll… go pack up my things and get ready to go to France.”>Diamond puts a hand on your shoulder.>”Don’t be that way. We’ve got parts of all three gems now. We can put an end to this.”>You snort, wetly.
”How soon?”>Twilight speaks.>”It would only take a few more days to get the rest of the pieces. As long as we can keep them together and with us, it would all be finished.”>Trixie raises an eyebrow, but keeps quiet.>Derpy looks down at you.
“I know. It doesn’t matter.”>There’s nothing you can say to her, is there?>She crouches down a little closer to you.>And then, tightly, wraps her arms around you. >”I-I miss her t-too, Silver.”
“I know you do-”>”I don’t blame you for what she did! She would have come with or without you, that’s the kind of sister she was. It’s the kind of sister all three of us are. We just have to live with that!”>You don’t know what to say.>She keeps talking.>”I came out here to protect you, just like you came to protect me at the factory. Th-there’s nothing wrong with that, it’s what sisters are for! We just have to stop doing it in secret!”>She squeezes you harder, and you squeeze back.
