Settling down on the couch with a contented sigh, you quickly drift off into blissful slumber.

You awaken to the sound of somepony knocking on your door. Groggily rising, you call out, “Just a sec, I’m coming!” Boy, it’s awfully dark out...

You look at the clock, squinting to read the hands in the darkness. Oh dear, it’s late! You’ve slept the entire day away!

Hurrying to the door, you see Twilight Sparkle standing there with a big grin on her face. “Good news, Carrot Top!” she exclaims. “Everything’s alright!”

Not sure how to respond, you cautiously say, “That’s... great! I’m glad... it... worked out?”

Twilight nods happily. “Oh yes. It was all very exciting, and I admit I was worried at times, but with good friends by your side, there’s nothing you can’t do! Anyway, I just thought you’d want to know that everything’s back to normal now. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve learned an important lesson about friendship, and I should write to Princess Celestia right away and let her know all about it!” The purple unicorn smiles and trots off.

You shake your head and close the door. Your glad that... it... worked out, even if you don’t really know what happened. But Twilight said everything’s fine now, and that’s what’s important, right?

Still, you can’t help but feel like you missed your chance to help, to be in the limelight for a change. But, for better or for worse, this story is now over.

The End
