Rainbow's voice was low and still angry. "Oh yeah. Then why'd you do it?"
"My t**s are extremely calm, Miss." explains the enraged mare. A whiskey bottle pops open and is quarterway guzzled. Some pony better get her superior officers quick before some pony else gets hurt. "I'll believe it when he says it. And tells me why. You can't play with a mare's emotions."
Great. This same bull**** again. And even after she promised to wait for his answer, now she tries to choke one out of him in front of everypony. If that wasn't enough, she had to add insult to injury and start chugging the hard stuff right in front of his face. At least the others were sympathetic to the dirty laundry getting dragged out here, that made it a little less shameful and embarassing. "I...care...about...you...*cough*...despite...all. ..this..."
he rasped out with great difficulty. "Why...isn't...that...enough-"
