Her bedroom door swung open. Lillille looked up to see an angry Royal Bori looming over her.
“... Greetings, Mother.” Lillille murmured.
The Queen narrowed her eyes. “Lillille, is it true you snuck out of the castle not too long ago?” she demanded.
“Of course not! I've been asleep!” Lillille lied.
“Then why are your hooves so dusty and dirty? Our castle is supposed to be spotless!” the Queen retorted.
“Ok, so maybe I went out for a late night stroll in the garden. I haven't been sleeping well lately.”
“Are you so tired as to forget proper etiquette? You are supposed to wash up after… frolicking in the dirt. Look, you've even soiled your rug and the bed with this awful dust!

As soon as his breaths had turned into the gentle wheezes of dreamers, I knew it was time. The moon bore witness to my fleeting figure, noting without emotion my attempts to keep as quiet as I could as I tiptoed out of the room. It saw me find what I was looking for, and offered a handful of moonbeams to aid my inspections. I accepted them, though they turned out to be unnecessary. I’d already known it’d be perfect.
