[The following morning…]
Principal Solaris: [Over the intercom] Good morning, students, and happy Thursday. Just a reminder to pick up your ballots for Lord of the Wondercolts today. They are due at the start of the big game tomorrow night, so don't forget to turn them in and make your voice heard.
Dusk Shine: This is it Barb. I’ve compiled a list of things to talk about. With this I’ll have them eating out of my deformed fore hooves in no time.
Barb: [laughing] You made a list? That's so unlike you!
Dusk Shine: [annoyed] I’m serious…
Barb: [embarrassed] Oh... Please... Continue. [climbs into Dusk’s backpack]
Dusk Shine: [Picks up the bag] First, I’ll introduce myself, then I’ll start talk about all the things I’ve learned. That’ll show them how I fit in here! [sigh] Alright, Barb. Here goes nothing…
[Dusk Shine opens the library door and walks out into the hallway. He approaches the first student he sees.
