Minty replied with a smile and a cheerful voice, "I'm afraid we haven't, because I'm new here! Nice to meet you, Roseluck, my name is Minty. Apple_Bloom wanted to introduce us, so here I am!"
Minty says this before entering, because she was always taught that its best to introduce yourself first, before entering another's home. Minty tries very hard to be courteous to everyone.
Minty looks around. "You have a lovely home!"
Then after paying the complement, she says, I'm just recently here from the human world. Apple_Bloom just asked me about it, but.. I'm not sure how I can describe humans to somepony who has never seen one, or if I would want to..."
Scootaloo brings one of her hooves to her muzzle, rubbing inquisitively and humming to herself, deep in thought. She considered doing many things, not least of which grabbing a chocolate to nom on, but ended settling with a stealthier approach. She turned back to Sweetie Belle, whispering for absolutely no sensible reason whataoever, "Lets go closer for a better look. Pick up your side, I'll get mine and we'll move ahead, slowly."
As the group headed toward the Cafe, Apple Bloom was still wondering where Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo couls possibly be at. She looked around behind her as she walked, and noticed both of the other Crusaders sneaking up.
Apple Bloom acted as if she saw nothing, and gradually began to slow her walking pace, so to escape from the group and join her other friends.
Minty can't help but hear the toppling over of the crate, and although she gives it a sideways glance, she can't help but notice that Apple_Bloom has separated from the rest of the group. She just smiles and slows her step.
"Youth is for the young," she thinks with a bit of nostalgia, desperately wishing she could remember more about her own childhood.
Scootaloo sighs defeatedly at Apple Bloom's effort before grinning, "Hey Bloom! We were trying to get Cutie Marks in sleuthing on the new pony, Sweetie. And we would have gotten 'em too, if it weren't for you meddling kids shouting at us. But at least we're all here now. Cutie Mark Crusaders yay!"
She notices the older pony's look, smiling and waving to her politely before staring at Apple Bloom, slightly scared of her mischievous grin, "Somepony said something about Cutie Marks?"
Apple Bloom notices that Minty is looking at them, and quickly tells Scoots and Sweetie to join in on a group smile (which is very was rehearsed) to stifle any suspicion that Minty might have.
After Minty begins to follow the rest of the herd to the cafe, Apple Bloom turns back to the Crusaders. "Aint either of you heard of Reverse Psychol... Psycholo..." Sweetie Belle finishes the sentence with a squeak "Psychology!"
"That's it." replies Apple Bloom. "I've gotten onto Minty's side now, so now I can sleuth without arousing any suspicion. Plus, now that she thinks she's caught us, she'll think we'll give up on our plan, but in reality, that WAS our plan! .... I think..."
Scootaloo finishes of her smile, a halo practically adorning itself on her head and spelling fake innocence. She turns away from the green mare and back to Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle, grinning.
"That is hooves down the greatest plan I've ever heard!" Scootaloo shouts, possibly a litte too loudly. She shrunk down slightly with a blush, looking toward Minty as she left to make sure she hadn't heard, and, saftisfied that she hadn't, turns back to the other crusaders to whisper.
"Ahem! Here's my plan." Said Apple Bloom as she pulled a presentation board out of seemingly nowhere.
"I think I should rejoin everypony else, and try to get a little but closer to this new pony. I saw on a TV show last night that someponies who have a shady past or have committed crimes often change their identity and move to a new town suddenly!" *Apple Bloom points at lots of fancy graphs and chart, followed by a spreadsheet with lots of numbers. "This "Minty" might be one of those ponies!" Exclaimed Apple Bloom.
If we can get our cutie marks and capture a bad pony at the same time, we'll be famous!
Cherry is walking next to Minty,she is noticing that the pony,s behind her are acting very suspicious.
Hmmm what are they up too now,i hope it is not a bad plan in there minds.
I will keep a little eye on them just in case.
I hope we are at the cafe soon my stomach is growling she said to Minty.
Minty an the herd finally reach the Cafe, but little do they know, they are under surveillance by the Cutie Mark Crusaders.
Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo hid behind the business next door so they could put their plan on motion without being seen. All three of the fillies raised on of their hooves for a 'Cutie Mark Crusader's YAY' before Apple Bloom would depart on her dangerous mission to gather information about this 'Minty'.
"Wish me luck" said Apple Bloom "I'm going to need it." With no further words, she nonchalantly trotted into the Cafe.
