[In Le Dumpster]

Sandy nervously fiddled with his hooves. They were so close, they might find him at any moment, but would that be so bad? Sure, he didn't want to go on any dates today, but he also didn't want to feel like this big of a jerk. He really should just open up, talk to his friends, be honest with them, but...but it was just too hard. They might just open the dumpster soon anyhow, then that would settle it all. No need to bother with popping out in that case. Yes, just better to sit still and stay quiet.

The stallion gave a quiet sigh, swirling a few rose petals dramatically around his head.
