>>32368873>Trixie was never good at being a source of comfort.>Partly because Trixie's never had friends to comfort in the first place.>The only few positive points she could draw from her life, are of her mom, and of the crowds who come to see her perform.>But never friends.
"Hey!">The two lifted their heads up in a snap at the sound of the roaring yell.>Standing before them was Maud's sister Limestone, and for once she actually looks happy.>Trixie didn't know if that was a bad thing yet.>She power walked up to the two.
"Where have you been?" Limestone was an inch away from Maud's muzzle.>Maud glanced away from her sister's fiery gaze.>Every second of silence only fueling the ticking bomb that was Limestone.>"Trixie...found her passed out in a nearby cave!" Trixie thought of a lie on the spot.>"She must have been knocked in the head by a random gem or rock" Trixie pointed towards Maud's head.>Maud shot a confused blank stare back at Trixie.>The always thinking on her hooves unicorn responded with subtle head nod.
"I didn't even make it to town." Maud's voice her normal monotone pitch.>She pulled the small pebble from before out of her dress pocket.
"Boulder wanted to spend the day with his cousins in one of the gem caves."
"And I guess they got kind of rowdy" >As Maud finished making her fake alibi.>Limestone glared deep into her eyes.>Squinting them almost shut.>The ash gray pony lifted her hoof up, and doing this caused Trixie to flinch and look away.>But instead of a smacking noise.>Trixie heard the sounds of little pats.>She turned back towards the two, and saw Limestone was hugging Maud.
