>Celestia, you, and Silver depart camp for the old campsite in the hopes of finding Rose. Celestia asks you why you're so determined to find her.
Lowering your forehead to her neck, you take a deep breath, consider her words. Technically, Rose isn't any sort of guaranteed ally, and even if she does help, how much will she affect this struggle? You're risking yourself, Silver and Celestia to find her. Why are you so determined?
"She's my friend."
"Ah," Celestia says, smiling. "Now that makes perfect sense."
Most of the remainder of the flight passes in silence; the occasional conversation popping up to keep your mind off the journey. Silver's still tense around you, like there's something he needs to say but can't bring himself to say it--at least in front of Celestia. The princesses herself seems more concerned with keeping Silver and yourself calm and comfortable. It's like she's got some sixth sense about it; every time you start feeling nervous about the length of the trip or where the enemy might be hiding, she speaks up, talking about how you first met, or some simple question about how you're finding Equestria. This must be one of the reasons why she's such a good leader.
