"And that, my queen, is my full account of the events which have occurred around this whole sordid affair."
Masquerade, Cheerilee, and Moondancer were standing before Queen Majesty's throne one more time, as the changeling spy explained the events, all the way from Cheerilee's escape to the present moment, to the queen in full detail. Satisfied with what the jeweled eyed Pegasus had told her, the queen looked to the teacher.
"So, Miss Cheeerilee, all of these facts and information that Masquerade has relayed about your situation, including the statute in the Bright Valley museum, are true and correct to the best of your knowledge?"
"That is correct, my queen." Cheerilee replied, bowing. "I was a victim of many circumstances beyond my control over my life. Nevertheless, I choose to forge ahead with my life, and take full responsibilites for my actions in any given situation."
The queen nodded, and smiled. "Well then, I see no problem, with restoring you to your position as teacher, and hereby drop all charges against y-"
"But my queen, she is an immoral hussy!" Moondancer snorted in protest. "Surely you can't-"
"Excuse me, Miss Moondancer..." Cheerilee trotted forward, scowling at the other mare. "...I mean you no disrespect, but would you kindly SHUT UP! I have been through a great deal of grief since the moment I was released from that book I was trapped in! And really, the last thing I need right now, is ANNNOYING ponies like YOU SHOOTING YOUR FLANKING MOUTHS OFF, AND MAKING MY LIFE EVEN MORE MISERABLE!"
Moodnacer stared at her in shock for several minutes, before replying coldly. "Well... some ponies don't know as much as they think they do!" She trotted off down the hallway, as the angry and intimidating Cheerilee suddenly slumped.
"Well done, Cheerilee." Masquerade said admiringly. "Had you not been a teacher, you would have made an impressive interrogator."
"I can't believe I just did that!" The earth pony teacher gasped out, lowering her head.
As the Pigtail-wearing teacher approached her classroom, she heard what sounded like a bunch of animals in a zoo coming out of the doorway. As soon as Cheerilee knocked, a cut up and scarred Sundance suddenly burst out of the room, slamming the door behind her. The exhausted school mare had an ear missing, and was gasping for air.
"Hello, Sundance?" Cheerilee asked, shocked by the sight in front of her. "I'm sorry to do this, but I've come back to-"
"TAKE THEM,PLEASE!" The earth pony begged on her knees, pleading with her hooves together. "They're totally evil, I want to go back to Megan! I'd rather teach a thousand human children than those monsters!"
Surprised, Cheerilee put a hoof on her shoulder, and smiled. "Don't worry, I'll take care of everything."
As the wounded Sundance limped away, Cheerilee trotted into the classroom, and trotted up to the desk. "Hello, everybody, I'm back!"
"Well well well, if it isn't the ancient equestrian nag!" Baby Moondancer snorted, looking at the teacher with contempt. "An' why ahould we listen to you?"
"Would you just shut up, you stupid filly!" Baby North Star snapped at the other girl. "Can't you see she's trying to teach us, and we're being terrible to her?"
Every other student sat there in silence for several seconds... before they all joined Baby North Star in defending the pink earth mare.
"Yeah, leave Miss Cheerilee alone!" Baby Firefly yelled angrily. "She's way cooler than you are!"
"Yeah! Get off her back! She's a way more awesome teacher than Miss Sundance!" Baby Glory protested.
As the other students spoke up for Cheerilee, the teacher slowly smiled at the support her own students were giving her. As the classroom began to quiet down again, Cheerilee trotted over to the chalkboard.
"Thank you very much, class." The teacher whinnied, quieting the class down. "Now, if you would open your science textbooks to page 45..."
The next day, the teaching mare was at the satin Slipper with a few friends, discussing how everthing had turned out.
"Cheerilee, I'm sooo glad you got everything worked out!" Applejack said, sipping her cider. "It's so great you were able to get your job back and everything.
"Yeah, can you believe our little pink mare would end up saving Ponyland!" Glory asked, taking a bite of her sandwich. "I mean, who knew everything would work out so smoothly?"
"I did, dahlink." Gypsy replied, laying her tarot cards out. "Zhen again, I alvays know how zeez zings will turn out."
Twilight Shine giggled at Gypsy's words, then turned back towards Cheerilee. "So, you want to go do some shopping in bright valley after this? Glory found some very shiny gemstones we could trade for some new dresses!"
"Thank you, twilight... but I think I'll be spending time with my family tonight!" The Pink mare smiled, as Wigwam and Quackers came trotting up to the table.
"Shoo weady to go -QUACK!- Mish Cheeriwiee?" The little filly asked. "Wigwam want to take ush to Nightshade concert now!"
"Yes! Lets's get going, little one!" Cheerilee replied with a smile, getting up from the table. "See you later, girls!"
As the three ponies trotted away, Glory looked over at the other three.
"Well, I'm glad everything has turned out the way it has." The white unicorn whinnied. "Cheerilee has a whole new life ahead of her!"
"True... though I notice you didn't tell Cheerilee that she was carrying another life force inside of her, Gypsy." Twilight added with a smirk
"W-what?" Applejack nearly choked on her drink. "You mean...? So that's why she's started putting on weight!"
"Vell, everypony should have some zurprises in zere vuture, my dear Tvilight." Gypsy replied with a smile. "Ozervise, vhere iz ze spice in life?"
