>>160100 Dark Star has no idea who the ponies involved are, or of the events unfolding. he sets the book back in the dresser and grabs the quilt and leaves the supplies he got in there. then he heads back down stairs and then he goes to the diner.
>>160113 "You're... you're much older than me. To be honest, you are older than my father. You have had a wife and children before. You are in a new city you came to alone. You are starting life again. What is it you want to do with this new life?"
>>160118 "It is not only thing that motives me in this new life, but for this instance it is primary motivation. I was alone for so long, not just without wife but without anyone else in my life. And you, well...look at you! Your beauty, it is not just external but interal as well. You are intelligent, kind, of strong character and moral fiber..."
>>160121 Khoi jumps back in her seat, evidently frightened of the fluff.
She speaks, "To you it may be a chance to live again. A second life... To me, it is my life. My one and only life. I want a husband. I want children. I want to be a mother to my children, and to have a father for my children. I want to be a wife and a mother, and so I must have a husband and a father. One who is strong, strong willed, has resources, and has good moral character. And I will need him for years. Decades, even."
>>160122 Oof. Like a dagger to the heart for Silver. He is silent for a moment, then two, perhaps just long enough for Khoi to worry as Silver ponders what she said right before he speaks. He is somber, but in his voice is a bit of hope.
"I know I am not as young as you, but...would you be willing to give this old stallion chance?"
>>160142 The area where they park is a bit less well lit. When Silver opens up the car door, Khoi has that slightly awkward smile. She makes a "Heh" laugh as she exits. She needs some assistance getting out, with her long dress falling to the ground.
>>160143 Silver gladly takes her hoof, and uses his magic to keep her dress from dragging on the ground and being ruined. He leads his kirin by the hoof to the restaurant. Perhaps having the big, strong unicorn helps her feel safer and more secure in the less-lit part of the parking lot.
