"So I heard from Ann last week. She said you called her about her request?"
"I called her with a compromise. Can't do what she asked, but I wanted to do something for her."
"How do you meet her halfway on that?"
WHAT. This has gotta be about Charlie. You take a quick glance at Opal and Autumn, who seem to be playing a game with the cherry tomatoes, rolling them back at forth at each other.
Naaah, you'd rather learn more.
"So, two requests you didn't think you could full, for your only two friends, at the same time Ann's new addition has something to do with my perfect little bat-pony, doesn't it?"
He has TWO whole friends? You'd never have guessed!
"Trust me, you don't want to know."
"Aaand something to do with that mark on your head, I'd bet."
"Opal's going to be your new pet, and Ann and her ponies will get what they want. Leave it be."
"Jeez, I haven't seen you this edgy about something since you went to get Seafoam."
"Oh god, I had no idea what I was doing."
Your mind is racing with the implications of all this. You've been playing an observation game to try to piece together Master's story this whole time, born out of your early fears that too much initiative would get you punished. But that's stupid! You're staying here,
submitting to his every little whim, and completely in love with it. You're his pony, he's not going to punish you for asking questions, especially if you just want to know more about him.
"Master? Excuse me, but I've got to know the whole story here."
-That's it for tonight. We're almost past Opal and onto Charlie, I swear.
