  58. >A white cloud amid a sea of black.
  59. >But even that is starting to lose its effect.
  60. >"What would she think if she saw me now?"
  61. >She averted her eyes to the dimming candle.
  62. >Attracted to it's dull light.
  63. >"She wouldn't hate me..." she continued her thoughts.
  64. >Her blurry vision landed once more onto the ruined letter from earlier

  83. >She was greeted by a spine-chilling sight.
  84. >Her old friends, but that wasn't what was chilling her spine.
  85. >It was the purple alicorn in the middle.
  86. >Twilight.
  87. >Emotions and urges swirled inside Moondancer's being.
  88. >It was as if she was fighting herself about how to react.
  89. "It's us" she said in that same heartwarming tone.
  90. "Your friends!"
  92. >The nerves in her brain were shot.
  93. >Out of everything she ever expected to happen.
  94. >This wasn't one she thought she would live to see.
