“Sorry,” you tell the boggie, “But I don’t trust you as far as I can throw you. Well actually, I could probably throw a little guy like you pretty far... the point is, I don’t trust you. My friends and I will do this without your help.”

At this, the creature begins to scream and rage, frothing at the mouth and hurling himself against the restraints. “I’d better stay here and keep an eye on him,” Twilight volunteers. “We can’t have him escaping and warning the others. You go put the results of our testing to use.”

You look at the boggie critically. “Okay, but what are we going to do with him after we’ve rescued Applebloom? We can’t just keep him locked up down here.”

Twilight shrugs. “We’ll let him go, once everypony is safe. After all, there’s only so much mischief a single boggie can get up to. Once we’ve gotten the rest of the clan to leave, I suspect he won’t want to stick around.”

You aren’t sure it’s wise to just let the boggie free, now or later, but decide to leave that to Twilight.
