Pony knew it would be a while before he could trust Pearl to anything that bothered him, but if she had truly felt bad enough to be the one to apologize, then he wouldn't hold it against her. Unlike his sister, she realized her ways. It was really difficult to admit being wrong. He noticed the way she hesitated then smiled weakly. He held open his arms to her, "friends again?" It would be slow but he hoped they would be back where they had been not long ago.

"Friends..." she said and moved in for the hug. It was slightly awkward but it made her feel better, that was for sure. She pulled back from the hug and looked at him with a tentative smile.

The hug was quick and felt somewhat cold. He didn't expect much more. He gave a slight smile. They weren't fighting any more but it certainly wasn't like it had been. "So.. ah.. how have you been?"

"I've been alright," she was fibbing a little, for she had missed him and was sad not to see him, but it seemed like things would be awkward between them for a time. "How about you, Pony?" she asked softly.

Pony ah'd and nodded. "That's good. I've been alright. Mostly been sleeping in my cart. Oh, but I met a nice man in town, better than most i ever met. He offered me a place to stay, but it seems he's got a girl there. He acts like it's fine but I can't imagine a woman would like a stranger just coming in. Even if they are just friends, I wouldn't want to make things seem more scandalous in his house than already is."

Her eyes widened a little, "Goodness." She couldn't imagine living with a man out of wedlock, though this was most certainly not the first she had heard of it in Whitby. She recalled that part of her conversation with Rose where they were discussing a certain Mr. Meijer and his fiery-haired fiance. Her cheeks went red. She wasn't sure what to say.

Pony noticed her look. "See! He assured me they were just friends and it seemed like he was helping her from a bad situation. But he clearly fancies her. So I couldn't stay there."

"I understand." She paused and then thought about what to do to help him. She didn't want to come off as improper by offering him some money, but it seemed like the only solution she had. She couldn't invite him to stay at her house, that would be unthinkable, putting the final nail in the coffin that belonged to her reputation. He seemed to care a great deal about reputation... "Would you like to stay at an inn for a time? I could pay your fare."

Pony held up his hand. "No no. Trust me, the cart isn't the worst. And usually I can still stable Jenny. It lets me stay closer to keep an eye on her, so that's nice. Besides, since I'm not staying in town to keep an eye on my sister any more.. I am wondering if I should move on to the next town. I rarely stay in one place for long. I have a restlessness, you know?" He usually makes enough enemies he has to leave.

She did her best to keep her face from falling into an expression of sadness but it didn't work. She didn't want him to go. "I see," she said in a reedy voice. Pearl looked down and bit her lower lip. "Where will you go?"
