|PONYVILLE MARKETPLACE - 1:21 p.m.|
She had always heard that, once you retire, it's important to keep yourself busy. Not that Bon Bon was retired—she was young still, had plenty of years of hard work running a profitable café and candy shop ahead of her. Sweetie Drops, on the other hand, was retired. She was no longer an active agent, the file was stamped and put away along with that of every other former Sweetie Drops.

She was as mellow as ever as she stepped through, seeming to gawk at all the little curiosities and knick-knacks surrounding her—but really her eyes were tracking the layout, looking for the potential exits. "Sorry if I'm interrupting! Could I get a hoof with something, mister shopkeeper? ...Are you, uh, in here?"
