Outrageous Insult

Starlight entered the prison cell, where Trixie was loudly snoring. With a long sigh, she raised her hoof and shook the sleeper awake.

“Huh, where am I?” Trixie muttered, rubbing her eyes.

“In prison,” Starlight responded.

“Oh, right,” Trixie said and stood up, stretching her body. After a moment of silence, she asked, “Why that face?”

“You know exactly why.”

Trixie shrugged.

“You kidnapped a filly, smuggled her out to another town, then forced her to appear in your show where you were about to shoot her out of a cannon.”

Trixie raised her head to the side. “That’s not true, she wanted to be part—”

“She screamed for help!” Starlight retorted, her patience breaking.

Trixie snorted. “It was her fault.”

“Really?” Starlight asked, rolling her eyes. “What did she do?”

“She called me narcissistic!”

Starlight sighed before turning around and leaving Trixie alone in her cell.
