Apple Tart goes wide eyed as Whinny runs off down the path and mills about, didn't she know? You NEVER split up the group, oh gosh, somepony was going to get attacked out here! She starts rapping on a tree in an attempt to get Diamond Charm's attention, and if that fails she's not beyond trying intricate tricks.

Diamond plotted quietly to herself... That is, until she was distracted by a rapping on a tree. She looks to Apple Tart curiously, "Yes? Did you find something, Miss Tart?"

Apple Tart began to flail her legs wildly before dropping them, figuring that'd only serve to confuse Diamond Charm. And since Orion also broke 'Horror Survival rule number 1' she has to resort to sitting in the dirt and drawing in it with a hoof. First, she draws what looks like a group of stick ponies, she points to the group and then swipes two away before redrawing them further away. She points to those two, and then to the group numerous times to indicate the other two are leaving. She then points at the two again and jumps onto her hind legs, throwing her forelegs up to look imposing as she opens her mouth to let out a monstrous roar. Which results in no sound whatsoever.

Whiny had only been running for a minute or two when she suddenly realized that she couldn't see where she was going. This epiphany was brought on by a face-first collision with something large and furry...that was now growling. Whiny, knowing how easy it was to get lost in the dark, did the only sensible option and started to run in full reverse, not turning at all. It was still much faster than most ponies going forward.

Orion is hit when Whiny begins to run backward. The glow of his horn ceases, and the large, growling, furry creature comes closer to them.

Diamond frowned as she began interpreting Apple Tart's message. She finally shook her head, "So you think they're goners, and that we should abandon them? I tend to disagree. We can wait a little while longer, Miss Tart. It would not be so farfetched that we could actually go help them, if you think they're in trouble..." Diamond raised an eyebrow expectantly, as if offering a newer, better idea than the one presented to her.

Pallet was pretty far behind the group..he didn't know them all too well so he kept his distance.
He wondered why they were all following whiny and what the sudden hold up was....

Apple Tart grumbles silently, because she can't really grumble at all and leans up against a tree with her forelegs crossed one over the other and rolls her eyes. She gestures at Diamond, just waiting to hear about her great plan.
Man, they really were doomed.

"Um, Professor, any chance you could turn the light back on so we can see what's chasing us?" Whiny asked, untangling herself from her companion.

Orion nods, and his horn glows again. The light reveals that... "Oh... It's a manticore..."

Diamond shrugged, "Well, my thought is... If this isn't on the map we're using to find the thieves... We're going the wrong way! We should backtrack to something we recognize and try again with a different route! I mean, it IS a forest - it's not as if we have to stick to a given pathway HERE of all places."

((lol I was thinking the same thing, but I didn't want to make an encounter AND what it was. That would just be greedy. :raritywink: ))

"Oh.....well buck." Whiny notes, throwing Orion onto her back (thank goodness she's used to carting large packages like that from her old mail job) and dashes off at a speed not to dissimilar from being shot out of a giant slingshot that was shot out of a giant slingshot. As such she wound up crashing into the group waiting for them. "Ow, that's weird. I'm usually so good at breaking. Wait..." she gets up, walks forward a bit, and then stops. Or at least she tries to, her hooves actually sliding her along like the ground was ice until she hit a tree. "That....that....that stupid meany-head thief stole my brakes!" she shouts as she pinballs into another tree. "Could this day get any worse?" she asks, to which the reply is a not-distant-enough-for-comfort roar bellowing out of the dark path. "That doesn't count that was *tree* was already going on!" *tree*

Cloaked had kept his distance as Diamond had asked and didn't get hit by Whiny. He now stared at the mess she had created before turning to whatever was making that roaring sound. He stared at whatever was coming from the dark path and hid in the shadows quickly.

Orion tumbled off Whiny's back when she hit the tree. He got to his hooves. "Shouldn't we be concerned with a raging manticore deprived of food?"

"Wait, how do we know it's been depraved of food? Maybe it's just hungry and hasn't had anything to eat?" Whiny asked, having learned that she could stop by setting herself down with her feet spread out.

"I said deprived, not depraved! Those are 2 completely different words."

"Oooohhh. Wait, how do we know it's been deprived of food? Maybe it's just hungry and hasn't had anything to eat?" Whiny asked, correcting her earlier question.

((Bah sorry I've been ignoring this ...got a huge workload at college and this cold is kicking my flank))

The manticore was in fact extremly hungry and ............OH look PONIES they should make a good snack.
While Whiny and Orion were busy it was slowly making its way towards them while licking its lips

He glanced ahead at all the ponies he would like to feast on
Each different colored pony would give its own unique flavor and the cutie mark would have some hint to it
The white one must taste like white chocolate
The grey must be some sort of take away right on time given the stopwatch mmmmmm~
Ooh that one with the air of sophistication around her she must taste like grapes
That one with the hat........Guess I'll see what happens must be from the west so I'll go with that.
Sleepy was hiding in the shadows but it could still smell him... ICE CREAM!!!


Pallet had gone all the way back and was considering venturing down the Black and White Path by himself.
He had his audio charge spell on so he could hear if the others needed some help

Orion looked, and saw the manticore was heading straight toward everypony. "RUN!" he shouted.

AppleTart has just been staring at Orion and White eyes like they were insane, which most definitely was not too far from the truth. At least in her mind, heck, she doesn't even turn to look at the Manticorn, she's still just staring at Orion, giving him the oddest, most judging look she can manage.

"Apple Tart, if you don't start running, you're going to become a manticore's snack! Now go!"

Diamond waved a hoof dismissively toward Orion, and, having been engaging Apple Tart in conversation, "Oh, I'm certain things are nowhere near as dire as you're insisting, Orion. I mean, you made it out, yes? So Apple Tart and I don't have to stage a rescue! I couldn't be more impressed with how well things work out sometimes," She concludes with a shrug.

Mr. Bunny does a bit of pantomime. "Huh, apparently the Manticor thinks I'd taste like white chocolate, and Diamond Charm like grapes. Or at least that's what he's musing." Whiteeyes translated. "........wait......he wants to eat us? Why didn't somepony say so!?" she shouts, getting up and running after, and then past, Orion.

Apple Tart just rolled her eyes at Orion and nodded to Diamond Charm, there wasn't much else she could add. Mostly because she couldn't talk, but she totally starts acting like a chicken towards Orion because he's a coward! It's not like there is a giant Manticorn behind her ready to eat her or something, that'd just be silly.
