"...A little too well. When I'd drop her off at school She'd suddenly start referring to herself as "The Great and Powerful Trixie">You noticed Sunset's eyes practically grew to the size of dinner plates>"...The Great and Powerful Trixie?!"

"...Sorry to dump all of this on you guys.">Sunset shrugs>"You remind me a lot of my dad, back during better days. Before I ended up being... alone.">...Alone?>Alone.>FUCK>You start patting your pockets in a panic
"I-I forgot my cell phone! I need to get home! Wait, I need to pay! I-">oh yeah, You've been drinking for awhile
