  39. "I know. For a long time I wanted to but everyone told me that I couldn't. Then while growing up I learned the truth about you"
  40. >Dandelion shifts her gaze towards the ground
  41. "I was so angry and heartbroken, and decided I would forget you alltogether. But then after a long while I started to remember the fun I had with you, and realized you were not completely evil. I mean, you had so many chances to do things to me but you chose not to... Not to mention that there was no evidence suggesting you ever did molest anypony"
  42. >Dandelion lifts her head and looks at you in the eyes again

  50. >you hug her back and Dandelion gives a small yelp of suprise as you hold her close
