Elite Night Guard: [now looking very nervous] "Erm...it was....some of Pinkie's crazy friends at that 'Fourth Wall Breakers Party' she's holding! It must have been that 'Scout' punk; he's always throwing that baseball around!"
Princess Luna: "Do so, Pinkie Pie - meanwhile, I have unfinished business with my FORMER Night Guard. Tis' not the last time some over-enthusiastic servant took trinklets from us to keep, but this had gone TOO FAR! He shall know my judgement!"
[Teleports off after the Night Guard]
Pinkie Pie: "So, Doctor, what flavored deserts do YOU like?"
Doctor Whooves: "Anything would be fine, actually. (Anything except pears... I HATE pears)"
[They both run off, the Doctor still confused, Pinkie still smirking]
====Later that night:====
[Princess Luna twists in the air to avoid a swath of magic bolts from the Night Guard, who takes the split-second distraction to jump into the shadow of a tree and vanish.]
Princess Luna: "Blast it; face me you coward! This insanity has gone on for hours, and it is NOT worth avoiding punishment over an abacus...even MY abacus!! FACE ME LIKE A STALLION!!"
[snarling, the Night Alicorn sweeps her gaze around the forest from above, looking for where the fleeing Night Guard emerged from his shadow-teleport.]
Elite Night Guard: [running pell-mell away from Luna, staying quiet and stealthy as can be] "All this for an abacus?!? Of all the ludicrous--"
[Unfortunately, the fleeing Night Guard was too focused on simply escaping to notice the sprinting, bipedal figure that slipped in beside him, until he catches a flash of metal off to his side, then...]
[something metalic and blunt hits the Guard square in the head, sending him flying into a tree, HARD.]
???: "Yeah, dat fancy armor of yours can't stop good old bat, can it pally?!? Dat was for makin' us stop the party!"
[The Night Guard shakes his head clear, then looks up at his assailant as he gets to his hooves, ready to charge. But then he falters,]
Elite Night Guard: "You're--you're a HUMAN?!?"
???: "Ooh, ya must be a genius! Nice ta meet ya, Brainiac....call me 'Scout'."
