没有一位童子军急着回家,她们就曾因为偷偷溜出来而惹上过大麻烦,而又有那么多需要得到解释的问题,她们需要找一个地方来躲开那些会对她们说教的姐姐们以得到那些问题的解答。

她们的家肯定是不行了,而阿杰、瑞瑞和云宝肯定会去童子军俱乐部找她们,所以最终她们决定去月亮家族的温室。

当她们爬上蹄铁丘的时候,甜贝儿不禁注意到莉月看上去是多么地沮丧,她心里想:‘都是我的错’。在她插嘴之前,莉月以为她可以控住佩利冬,而甜贝儿则让一匹小马开始怀疑起她的可爱标记了,这与以一个称职的童子军所做的工作恰恰相反。

珀月小心翼翼地打开温室的门以确保不发出任何声音,她们偷偷溜了进去,朝着那巨大建筑物的里面走去。甜贝儿看到飞板璐小心翼翼地避开了一盆植物,她猜那肯定是她之前不小心碰到的恐惧蕨。

飞板璐低声道:“各位注意不要碰到这个。”她的话证实了甜贝儿的怀疑。

“这里所有的东西都不要碰,”珀月补充道:“恐惧蕨不是这里唯一会带来麻烦的东西。”

小萍花道:“似乎你们这还有不止那些能引起麻烦的东西。”

珀月有些防御性地问道:“这是什么意思?”

“呃...”小萍花努力地在寻找能合适表达的词,但飞板璐并没有这么考虑。

“比如你的家人,”她脱口道:“那些奇怪的药水、古书还有吓马的植物;你那疯一样的婶婶、带有滑稽笑容的老爸还有你那对见到的每匹小马都不给好脸色的老妈。”姐妹俩看上去都很震惊又感觉很受伤,但珀月的表情很快又变得冷冰冰又难以捉摸。

“我以为你只是想谈谈那佩利冬的事,而不是把焦点引到我们家人上,”珀月平静地回道,“如果我们那么让你失望的话,也许你还是先回家吧。”

“现在先等一等,”小萍花坚定道:“不是那样的!我们是你们的朋友!但你不得不承认自从你们搬来后,小马镇的生活开始变得疯狂起来,我们只是有一些疑问而已。”

莉月问道:“什么样的疑问?”童子军们面面相窥,该从哪里问起呢?

于是甜贝儿道:“好吧,那糖果棒的事怎么说?”

珀月看起来有些疑惑:“你在说什么呢?”甜贝儿叹了口气——这已经没有回头路了。

“莉月从你的房间拿了个糖果棒带到学校,而纠纠给吃了,这就是为什么她会变成木精狼。”甜贝儿看着俩姐妹处理着听到的讯息,她们看起来都很困惑。

莉月边想边问着:“但...你为什么之前什么也没说?”她带有些责备的目光看着她们,“你...你不会以为...我们是故意把纠纠变成木精狼的吗?”

飞板璐纠正道:“呃,在这个点上,我们以为是珀月做的。”珀月眼睛瞪大了,飞板璐又迅速补充道:“当然那是在帮助我们解决恐惧蕨事件之前。”

“就算如此...会诅咒吃下它的小马的一根糖果棒,这是大多数小马都不会有的。”小萍花瞥了眼她们周围的植物,“同样这间温室也是,里面种满了只有塞拉斯蒂娅才知道(注:Only-celestia-knows,可以看作“鬼知道什么玩意”之类的意思,小马常用俗语,在正剧S07E01有出现)的植物。”

飞板璐补充道:“然后就是刚刚发生的一切,你说你在研究佩利冬上得到了自己的可爱标记,但今晚——”

“我已经告诉你了,我不知道哪里出了问题,”莉月几乎快要哭着脱口道,“我原以为这与那超自然生物有关,但你现在可能认为我在这方面也在撒谎!”莉月把脸藏了起来,避免其它小马看见她在哭。

珀月跑了过去安慰着她的妹妹,她怒视着童子军们。

“这就是友谊该做的吗?指责我们...有...多么邪恶?”甜贝儿感觉糟透了,她敢相信小萍花和飞板璐也是如此。是的,在小马镇发生了不少奇怪的事情,但莉月和珀月一直陪在她们身边,她们不仅仅是证明了自己,难道不是吗?

“我们问这些问题是因为我们想和你一起解决它,”小萍花试图解释道,“这才是朋友该做的。”

“也许我们这里根本就不需要你们这样的友谊。”温室外面传来了一个清脆的声音。小马们都转过身来,看到莉月和珀月的母亲——卢米娜萱正大步向她们走来。“在那‘友谊公主’和她的同伙们如此对待我们的方式后,我想我不会感到惊讶她们的年轻的同伙们也是如此,你们从一开始就一直带来着坏影响。”

“好了,先等等——”飞板璐正要说,但被卢米娜萱打断了。

“不,是你等一等!”那独角兽越说越生气,“自你们三个闯进这所房子的那时候,你们就一直在制造麻烦。你凭什么把责任推到我们身上?你强迫我们为你们所做的事情向那公主负责吗?”

“我们?”小萍花现在也有些恼怒得看着卢米娜萱,“我们所做的一切都是为了帮助你的女儿!”

“通过指责我们滥用邪恶的植物?在你们三个连自己的蹄子都管不住还来恶意地到处招惹我们?我的家人们已经受够了你们的帮助了,你们可以自行离开。” 卢米娜萱转身大步走出了温室,她头也不回地喊道:“女孩们!”莉月和珀月看了看她们的朋友,又看了看她们的老妈,然后她们转过身来闷闷不乐地跟在了后面。

“来吧。”小萍花也冲出了温室,飞板璐和甜贝儿都跟在了她后面。当她们踏入了充斥着凉爽空气的夜空后,甜贝儿看到蓝月站在院子里笑着看着她们。

他脸上似乎带着有些难以描述(有些过头)的微笑道:“祝你们三个有个愉快的夜晚。”甜贝儿紧靠着她的朋友们。当莉月和珀月说她们不知道是怎么回事时,她能相信她们的话,但她对于她们的家人并没有这样的感觉。

 

英文版:

None of the Crusaders was anxious to go home. They were in a heap of trouble for sneaking out. And with so many unanswered questions, they needed a place where they could work on getting answers far away from any lecturing sisters.

Their homes were no good, and Applejack, Rarity, and Rainbow Dash were sure to check the clubhouse. So finally, the friends settled on going to the Moon family greenhouse.

Sweetie Belle couldn’t help but notice how upset Lilymoon looked as they crept up Horseshoe Hill. ‘It’s all my fault.’ Sweetie Belle thought. Until she’d stepped in, Lilymoon had thought she could control the peryton. Sweetie Belle had made a pony doubt her cutie mark: the exact opposite of what a good Crusaders should do.

Ambermoon carefully opened the greenhouse door so it wouldn’t make any noise. They sneaked inside and headed toward the back of the cavernous glass building. Sweetie Belle saw Scootaloo carefully avoid a potted plant and assumed that must be the fear fern she’d accidentally bumped into before.

“Nopony touch that thing,” Scootaloo whispered, confirming Sweetie Belle suspicion.

“Nopony touch anything,” Ambermoon added. “The fear fern isn’t the only plant in here that could cause trouble.”

“Seems like y’all got a lotta stuff that causes trouble,” Apple Bloom observed.

“What’s that supposed to mean?” Lilymoon asked defensively.

“Well…” Apple Bloom struggled to find the right words. Scootaloo, however, had no such issue.

“What’s the deal with your family?” she blurted out. “The strange potions, the ancient books, the creepy plants. Your crazy aunt, and the way your dad smiles funny and your mom glares at everypony she sees.” The sisters both looked shocked, then hurt, but Ambermoon’s expression quickly became cold and unreadable.

“I thought you wanted to talk about the preyton, not attack our family,” Ambermoon said quietly. “If we’re so upsetting, maybe you should go home.”

“Now, hold on,” Apple Bloom said firmly. “It ain’t like that! We’re your friends! But you gotta admit things have been pretty crazy in Ponyville since y’all moved here. We just have some questions is all.”

“What kind of questions?” Lilymoon asked. The Crusaders all glanced at one another. Where to begin?

“Well,” Sweetie Belle spoke up, “what about the candy cane?”

“What are you talking about?” Ambermoon looked lost. Sweetie Bellle sighedthere was no turning back now.

“Lilymoon took a candy cane from your room. She brought it to the Schoolhouse and Twist ate it. That’s why she turned into a Timberwolf.” Sweetie Belle watched the sisters process the information. They both looked completely baffled.

“But…why didn’t you say anything?” Lilymoon asked as she worked things through in her head. She looked at them accusingly. “You…you thought…that we made Twist a Timberwolf on purpose?”

“Well, at that point we thought that Ambermoon did,” Scootaloo corrected her. Ambermoon’s eyes widened. “That was before you helped with the fear fern!” Scootaloo added quickly.

“Still…a candy cane that curses the pony who eats it. That’s somethin’ most ponies don’t have lyin’ around.” Apple Bloom glanced at the multitude of plants surrounding them. “Same goes for a greenhouse full of plants that do Celestia knows what.”

“And then there’s everything that just happened,” Scootaloo added. “You said you got your cutie mark when you were studying perytons, but tonight

“I already told you I don’t know what went wrong,” Lilymoon blurted, on the verge of tears. “I thought it had something to do with supernatural creatures, but now you probably think I’m lying about that, too!” Lilymoon hid her face so nopony could see her crying. Ambermoon rushed over to comfort her sister. She glared at the Crusaders.

“Is this how friendship works? Accusing us of being…what…evil?”

Sweetie Belle felt terrible. She could tell Apple Bloom and Scootaloo did, too. Yes, something strange was going on in Ponyville. But Lilymoon and Ambermoon had been by their side through all of it. They had more than proven themselves…hadn’t they?

“We asked ’cause we wanna figure it out with you,” Apple Bloom tried to explain. “That’s what friends do.”

“Perhaps we don’t need your kind of friendship here,” a crisp voice called from the front of greenhouse. The ponies turned to see Lilymoon and Ambermoon’s mother, Lumi Nation, striding toward them. “After the way the Princess of ‘Friendship’ and her associates treated us, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that their younger counterparts are the same. You’ve all been bad influences from the start.”

“Now, wait just a minute” Scootaloo began, but Lumi cut her off.

“No, you wait!” The Unicorn got angrier as she spoke. “From the moment you three barged into this house, you’ve been causing trouble. You dare put the blame on us? You force us to answer to a princess for things that you have done?”

“Us?” Apple Bloom was as angry as Lumi. “All we’ve been doin’ is tryin’ to help your daughters!”

“By accusing us of some kind of evil pot? Parading us around down as malicious when it was you three who couldn’t keep your hooves to yourselves? Well, my family has had quite enough of your help. You can see yourselves out.” Lumi turned and strode out of the greenhouse. “Girls!” she called without looking. Ambermoon and Lilymoon looked from their friends back to their mother, then they turned and glumly followed after her.

“Come on.” Apple Bloom stormed out of the greenhouse. Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle hurried after her. As they stepped into the cool night air, Sweetie Belle saw Blue Moon standing in the yard, grinning.

“You all have a pleasant evening, now,” he said through his too-faced-to-be-real smile. Sweetie Belle huddled a little closer to her friends. She believed Lilymoon and Amebrmoon when they said they didn’t know what was going on. But she sure didn’t feel the same way about their parents.
