“Heh heh, there more places. It’s a big town.”
He looks up, and about.
“Uh… I’ll think of something.” He says
“You, um, like exploring?”
His tail is visibly moving back and forth, and his lips, sometimes closed, and sometimes exposing teeth, remain firmly pulled back.
His anticipation seems to rub off on her, as she likewise shakes her auburn tail and looks intently at him. "You bet your rump I do."
“Heh heh heh. I can, I can take you to a fancy restaraunt if you want but um, um, I think my mother might get mad if I spend all of my money on that and not buying the groceries. We can go to the movies, or to the theater if you like that. Or we can go somewhere else. Maybe to the cliffs, or someplace if you want to explore more literally.”
He audibly sighs looking relieved. Then he moves his head closer, examining her reaction skeptically. Then he seems surprised.
“Well…. There’s the cliffs. The old fort out by the water. The shot tower. Uh…”
“Oh really? The one at Locust Promintory, or the one at the harbor mouth? The shot tower is this old, really tall building. It was used to make lead for guns, or something. Anyways, that’s by the river.”
“Hmmm… Where did you hear about that ‘Club Maurice,’ anyways? I didn’t really take you got the type to go places like that.”
she mutters with a sudden nervousness. "I was actually invited. I had to go there to help with something. It wasn't really important."
“Oh, okay. Yeah, I didn’t think you were a regular. So… you want to stay here for now, or….”
She shakes her head, her mane flying about. "Not unless you do. I had a good swim and I'm happy about that."
“Uh, sure. So… where to next?”
“Sure!” He says. He finally picks up a towel, and attempts to dry himself more with it.
“Heh, yeah. Although I’ll get wet again. And have to dry off again.”
He starts to walk towards the showers on the other side.
Amber walks alongside him and takes a shower stall next to him.
He turns the the lever-valve on the shower and lets the water flow over him. The process undoes many minutes of drying off, much to his evident dismay. He finishes, and attempts to dry himself with a towel.
Amber does the same, trying to run water through her mane and tail to get the chlorine out. When she's satisfied, she turns off the shower and shakes her body before grabbing a towel.
He looks over to her, still giddy and smiling, evidently entertained by her slightly fluffier appearance as she attempts to dry off.
Her winter coat adds a bit of fluff, though not as much as with certain ponies. She grins and also looks Mustard over before turning to grab her clothes.
“I think we might be moist for a while. It could be very cold.” He says
Amber nods. "My dress is wool so I'll be warm enough. Are you going to be alright?"
she asks as she dons the apparel.
“Uh…” he looks at his own jacket, which is thinner than hers.
“I’ll be fine.”
She frowns, but she had left behind her cloak and doesn't have anything to give. "If you say so,"
she replies. "Are you ready to go?"
she asks, when she's put on her dress and saddlebags.
“Sure.” He says
“So… Where do you want to go?”
Blinking with a blank look on her face, she replies, "I'm not sure. If I can't decide, will you?"
"Hmm. Well, they are your toys to play with, but I think it would be good idea to place trust in other foals. Maybe you can find common interest."
“Of course.” He says, putting on his jacket. “Just making sure.” >>153198
“Common interests?! Like what?”
"Well, you like sea and marine biology. You could find pony who is also interested those things."
“But there isn’t…” he trails off
"...anypony who is interested in marine biology?"
Busier than I thought. I will try again next weekend.
Still holding out home for some time this week.
"They don't like to talk about the different taxonomies, and the oceanic zones..."
But u 2
"What about other aspects of ocean? Like your favorite marine monsters."
“But that’s like, the only thing that interests anyone. Except fish you can catch, I guess.”
"You can use it as way to pull others into learning about ocean. Teach what they find interesting at first, and slowly expand over time."
He looks up at Silver, and blinks
“But what if it ends there, and they instead want to talk about war, or sports, or whatever else?”
"Friendship is two-way street, too. Maybe you could find something you like that they also like."
Hoping to play whenever it's convenient for you
Daily reminder (You) are a cute pony.
