“Alright,” you say. “If you tell me where the boggies are keeping Applebloom, I’ll let you go. But don’t try anything funny! If I think you’re lying, I’ll just take you back to Twilight anyway.”

“Okay, okay, okay! Geeze, you ponies are stupid AND mean!” You give the box a hard shake. “OW! What was that for?”

Glowering at the pastry box, you say nothing.

“Honestly, and grumpy too...”

You shake the box again. “Just tell me where Applebloom is, without the editorializing.”

“Alright, alright. Lessee... you know that carrot farm near the edge of the town?”

You blink. “Yes, of course. That’s my farm.”

“Really? Wow, my complements then. The apples on the next farm over are pretty sweet, but I’ve always preferred the green stuff, myself. The carrot shoots are just perfect, real moist and—”

“Are you going to tell me where Applebloom is, or are we going to have to do this the hard way?”

“I’m GETTING to it, sheesh! So if you’re standing at the corner of the fence, the right corner from the woods, you turn around and face the tallest mountain past the forest. Then you turn a few inches left, and start walking straight. Within a mile, you’ll come to a sandstone ridge. There’s three big caves all pretty close together; go to the one on the left. Now I’ve done my part, so how about you let me out of here?”

You briefly consider dragging him back to Twilight anyway, but a bargain’s a bargain. “Alright, I’m going to let you out, but if I find out you lied to me...”

“I didn’t, honest! Now hurry up, I’m chafing in here!”

You carefully lift up the box, wary for any surprises. However, the boggie simply dashes off as soon as you release him, running down the alley and disappearing around a corner.

You need to move fast now. The boggie is sure to go warn his friends that you’re coming! Should you get Twilight and Applejack, so that you have plenty of friends to help you? Or should you hurry on alone, and try to maintain the element of surprise?
