当天晚上,当瑞瑞邀请可爱标记童子军们一起到暮暮的城堡吃晚餐的时候,甜贝儿没有任何怀疑。但当她一走进城堡,看到星光熠熠、斯派克、云宝黛西、苹果杰克、萍琪派和小蝶都在场的时候,她就知道这真正是要干什么了,这是姐妹间说教式的一次‘伏击’。

.

甜贝儿瞥了一眼小萍花和飞板璐,从她们一样愁眉苦脸的样子看来,她们似乎也得出了一样的结论。

甜贝儿嘟囔道:“瑞瑞...我记得你说过这只是一顿晚餐...”

“的确是,亲爱的,”瑞瑞天真地眨着眼睛道:“很明显...嗯,我们一直为你们三个担心,觉得你们还没有到——我该怎么说呢——最安全的情况。”

甜贝儿剁着前蹄,想张开嘴提醒瑞瑞诚实可是友谊元素之一,但暮暮顺利插起了话。

“我很高兴你们能来这,在与蓝月、卢米娜萱和黯然婶婶聊过之后,我有点担心他们还没有意识到会卷入一些危险的魔法!但在我得到答案之后,我觉得如果我们能给月亮家庭一些私马空间,对每匹小马来说都是最好的。”

苹果杰克告诉她小妹妹道:“她的意思是我们不希望你们再跟莉月和珀月去交朋友了,对不起小甜心。”

“那忠诚元素呢?”甜贝儿脱口而出,“还有善良呢?”成年小马们都惊讶地看着她,而她怒视着她们,“背弃我们的新朋友算的上什么慷慨?”

萍琪边说边跳了起来:“哦,哦,来讲讲我的元素!”

甜贝儿耸耸肩道:“呃...当你不被允许跟某些小马交朋友的话,怎么传播欢笑元素呢?”

暮暮真诚地对甜贝儿道:“我能理解,你说的很对。但我很担心的是魔法元素,按目前情况来看,我担心你们跟莉月和珀月做朋友会让你们冒着更大的风险。”

飞板璐抗议道:“但这不公平!”

云宝黛西断言道:“我们这是在保护你们!奇怪的事情不断地在发生!我们都不希望那些事情会落在你们身上!谁知道接下来还会发生什么?”

“我想我们很快就会知道了。”斯派克边说边看到史密斯婆婆冲进了城堡餐厅。

这是最可怕的!”婆婆气喘吁吁道,“这是比我见过的霜冻甲虫吃掉果园四分之三面积的还要糟糕的事!”

苹果杰克边说边把一只蹄子搭在婆婆的肩上:“别急,婆婆。先深呼吸,好。现在告诉我们可怕的事情是什么?”

“先别废话了,听我说!”婆婆皱起了眉头,推开了苹果杰克的蹄子,“我又不是娇弱的不能碰的花朵,我刚刚在睡觉的时候,天又黑又亮,我枕着我最喜欢的枕头,也就是表哥Tart Pippin在驱寒节送我取暖用的。”婆婆闭上眼睛,依偎在枕头上。

过了好一会,甜贝儿开始怀疑婆婆是不是真的睡着了,婆婆的眼睛忽然睁开把她吓了一跳。

“那就是我看到它的时候!一个巨——大的野兽,在黑暗中移动!它一直发出着可怕的铃声,我都能感觉得到那声音响彻了我的牙齿!”婆婆把她的假牙从她嘴里拿出来摇了摇来说明。

飞板璐低语道:“恶心。”

苹果杰克耐心地说道:“呃,婆婆?你不认为那只是你的闹钟吗?”这让甜贝儿会感觉她们之前就有过这样的对话。

“当然那肯定不是我的闹钟!”婆婆反驳道,“在那畜生咬了一口苹果之前就警告我离开那里!”

“我们会调查这件事的,婆婆。”暮暮想让婆婆安心,“苹果杰克,要不你先把婆婆送回家,确保农场里的一切都很安全如何?”苹果杰克点点头,把婆婆带向城堡大门。

“啊,当我看到那个影子生物时我就知道了!”当苹果杰克护送她出去时,婆婆依旧怒气冲冲。“你能看出原因—--它们的眼睛,就像白色火苗在眼窝里熊熊燃烧!”

甜贝儿不禁皱起了眉头,这听起来很熟悉,就像她曾在梦中看到的那样...

“而且它们闻起来像玉米奶油冻!”奶奶离开时依旧在继续说着。

“我们昨天在做玉米奶油冻,”小萍花小声地对她的朋友们道:“现在整个屋子里都是那种味道,我想奶奶只是做了个噩梦而已。”

其她小马们转身看向童子军们,甜贝儿能看出吃晚饭前还会进行不少‘演讲’。

“你懂得,你知道暮暮相信可以给小马第二次机会,”星光熠熠带着一丝微笑说道,这让甜贝儿意识到这独角兽说的是自己,“在我们搞清楚这是怎么回事之前,先从莉月和珀月的事情上先休息一下吧。”

“呃,暮暮?”苹果杰克和婆婆又回来了,甜贝儿觉得她们两马的脸上都有一种奇怪的表情,“你也许应该先来看看这个。”

暮暮好奇地小跑到窗前,其她小马都跟在她后面。

甜贝儿搭在瑞瑞的肩上往窗外看,城堡外一群小马正皱着眉头、大声喊叫着,用蹄子锤着城堡大门。

“一只巨大的猛兽袭击了我!”

“一些恐怖的事情在小马镇发生了!”

“我们完了!!!!!”

Sweetie Belle didn’t suspect anything when Rarity invited the Cutie Mark Crusaders to Twilight’s castle for dinner that night. But as soon as she walked in and saw that Starlight Glimmer, Spike, Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, and Fluttershy were there, Sweetie Belle knew what was really going on. It was a sisterly advice ambush.

Sweetie Belle glanced at Apple Bloom and Scootaloo. From the sour looks on their faces, it seemed as if they had come to the same conclusion.

“Rarity…” Sweetie Belle hissed. “I thought you said this was just a fun dinner…”

“And it is, darling,” Rarity said, batting her eyelashes innocently. “It simply that…Well, we’ve been worried about you three. You haven’t keeping thehow shall I say this?safest company.”

Sweetie Belle stomped her front hoof and opened her mouth to remind Rarity that honesty was one of the elements of friendship, but Twilight smoothly cut in.

“I’m glad you’re all here. After speaking to Blue Moon, Lumi Nation, and Auntie Eclipse, I’m a little concerned that they’re involved in some dangerous magic. They might not even realize it! But until I get some answers, I think it’s best for everypony if we all give the Moon family some space.”

“She means we don’t want you fillies hangin’ around with Ambermoon and Lilymoon anymore. Sorry, sugarcube,” Applejack told her little sister.

“What about loyalty?” Sweetie Belle burst out. “And kindness?” The older ponies looked at her in surprise. She glared at them. “It’s not very generous to turn our backs on our new friends!”

“Ooh, ooh, do my elements!” Pinkie Pie said, bouncing in place.

“Um…it’s really hard to share laughter when you’re not allowed to talk to somepony?” Sweetie Belle shrugged.

“I understand, and you make a good point,” Twilight told Sweetie Belle sincerely. “But the element I’m worried about is magic. And the way things have been going, I’m afraid being friends with Lilymoon and Ambermoon puts you at a greater risk.”

“But that’s not fair!” Scootaloo protested.

“We’re trying to protect you!” Rainbow Dash asserted. “Weird things keep happening! And we don’t want them happening to you! Who knows what’ll be next?”

“I think we’re about to find out,” Spike said drily as a rantic Granny Smith raced into the dining room.

“It was horrible!” Granny panted. “The worst thing I ever saw since the frost beetles ate three quarters of the orchard!”

“Slow down, Granny. Take a deep breath. Now. What was horrible?” Applejack said, putting a hoof on Granny’s shoulder.

“Quit jabberin’ and listen!” Granny scowled, knocking Applejack’s hoof away. “I ain’t a frail flower to be coddled and swaddled. I had just tucked down fer my nap. It was nice ’n’ dark, and I had my fav’rite pillow, the one cousin Tart Pippin gave me for Hearth’s Warming.” Granny closed her eyes, miming snuggling into a pillow.

After a few moments, Sweetie Belle wondered if Granny had really fallen asleep. She jumped when Granny’s eyes flew open!

That’s when I saw it! A huuuuuge beast, movin’ in the shadows! And it kept makin’ this horrible ringin’ noise I could feel all the way down to my teeth!” Granny took out her dentures and shook them to illustrate.

“Ew,” whispered Scootaloo.

“Uh, Granny? Ya don’t suppose that was just yer alarm clock?” Applejack said with a patience that made Sweetie Belle think they’d had this conversation before.

“Of course it was my alarm clock!” Granny retorted. “Alarmin’ me to get outta there before that beastie took a bite of Apple!”

“We’ll look into it, Granny,” Twilight reassured her. “Applejack, why don’t you take her home and make sure everything’s safe on the farm?” Applejack nodded and hustled Granny to the door.

“Hmph. I know a shadow creature when I see one!” Granny huffed as Applejack escorted her out. “You can tell ’cause-a their eyes. Like white fires a-burrrrrnin’ in their sockets!”

Sweetie Belle frowned. That sounded familiar. Like something she’d once seen in a dream…

“Plus they smell like corn custard!” Granny’s voice went on as she left.

“We were makin’ corn custard yesterday,” Apple Bloom whispered to her friends. “The whole farmhouse smells like it now. I think Granny just had a nightmare.”

The older ponies turned back to the CMCs. Sweetie Belle could tell that more lectures were on the menu before dinner.

“Look, you know Twilight believes in giving ponies second chances,” Starlight Glimmer said with a half smile that made Sweetie Belle realize the Unicorn was taking about herself. “Just take a little break from Lilymoon and Ambermoon until we can figure out what’s going on.”

“Uh, Twilight?” Applejack walked back in with Granny. Sweetie Belle thought both ponies had a strange look on their faces. “You probably should see this.”

Twilight curiously trotted over to a window, the others following her.

Sweetie Belle peered over Rarity’s shoulder to see. Outside the castle, a small group of ponies had frowned, and they were yelling and hammering on the front door.

“A huge creature attacked me!”

“Something’s terrorizing Ponyville!”

“We’re doooooomed!”
