"Mostly the first one." Foxtrot answers. "That's how I found out about these, by accident rather." The unicorn chuckles, "I also accidentally ate one of those pollen things. As great as they look, they taste terrible."

"Well that's good to know, because I was quite tempted to try to eat one." She giigles a bit and leans forward to get a closer look at the flowers, "So, if you don't mind me asking, what were you doing here? Seems like an odd place to spend your nights."

Foxtrot pauses before answering Tinder's question, "There were several periods of time where I didn't have anywhere to sleep at night. Guards would hassle me for loitering in the streets, thugs would try to rob or kill me. One night I took a chance and came here. I didn't even venture that far to begin with, I just stayed at the fence line. Later on I went further onto the grounds, noted the patrols and worked my way around that. It was safer here than the streets, and the views sometimes were amazing." The unicorn chuckles, "I actually made it to one of the tower balconies. Not where the princesses were, but the ones next to them. I even spotted Luna one time." Foxtrot looks up at the sky, the golden spores now floating overhead, "Its great to be here by myself at times but... I don't know. I guess after wandering so much you just want a place to call your own."

Tinder listens to him as she stares at the spores, taking the beautiful sight in, "It's pretty good that you managed to find a place to sleep in here. When you're living without a home having a safe place to sleep can be quite a problem. I lived in the alley with all those who raised me there, so I was always pretty safe,  those folk would protect me with their lives." She yawns a tiny bit as she continues speaking, "But I understand what you're saying, it's nice to have a place for yourself that's not an alley or a flower garden."

"Yea it is nice." Foxtrot replies, yawning as well. "Speaking of which, we need to find a place to sleep as well. It is getting late. We can go find an inn or just sleep here at the garden."

Tinder looks around a bit as she thinks, "The problem with inns is that they cost money, and I'm not exactly loaded with cash right now. I got the stuff I stole earlier but there is no pawn shops open for me to pawn it off, and the bits I stole aren't enough to get a room for the night." She goes back to staring at the flowers and smiles, "And I mean this place is nice, I wouldn't mind sleeping here. Unless you think the guards might come around and find us."

Foxtrot  his head, "Well the guard patrol is routine. In fact, there's a gazebo they never check, lazy bastards." Foxtrot gets up and stretches, "It's on the other side of the garden. We just gotta keep an eye out for guards on the way there."

Tinder nods and stands up, taking one last good look at the flowers before starting to keep an eye out for the guards, "Hopefully this won't be the one night that they actually bother to check the gazebo. Though right now, I'm honestly too tired to care if we do get caught. I mean what's the worse they can do to us?"

Foxtrot looks around and begins walking to the gazebo, "Worst case scenario they'll say we're trespassing. Ask us why, and then throw us out, quite literally. The hardest thing would be the landing."

Tinder follows a couple steps behind and nods, "Well that's not too bad then, it could be much worse. Plus, I'm sure between the two of us we could make up some kind of story that would get them to let us stay for the night. They wouldn't want to throw an injured pony out on the street would they? So if we need to I can pull that card, haul out the burns and maybe they'll pity us."

As Foxtrot continues forward he looks over to some exotic flowers up ahead. "Yea I'm sure they'll feel bad and let us stay. If we're lucky they may even give us beds inside the castle for the night." As they approach the flowers he plucks one and offers it to Tinder. "And if they don't go for that, I'll tell them I'm magically disabled. In Canterlot that's the most pitiful thing you can find in this city of magic. They would have to feel bad and let us stay for the night guaranteed."

Tinder smiles a little as she takes the flower and puts it behind her ear, "Exactly, we'll be set. They will definitely let us stay the night if we tell them that, it's the perfect plan. I almost want to get caught to see if it will work."

Foxtrot watches the stranger run by and just accepts it. "Yea, I wonder what they would do if they caught them. Anyway, the gazebo should be up ahead." The unicorn heads to a slightly worn down gazebo, a big disc lock protecting it from intruders. "Wow they actually locked it this time. Just one moment..." Foxtrot pulls out a lock pick and gets to work, in less than a minute the lock clicks open and he pulls the door back. "After you madam."

Tinder watches him work, a large smile crossing her face as she see's the lock pop open, "I see that's not the first time you've picked a lock." She walks into the gazebo and waits for him to come in, "Do you want me to lock the lock with my magic so it doesn't look like anyone is in here? Mind you it will take me a while to pick it with my magic in the morning."

"You don't have to." Foxtrot answers as he steps inside, reaching his hoof over to close the door and place the lock back on. "I'm just going to leave it a tiny bit open. Small enough to avoid being noticed but open enough to not lock us in." With that sorted he lays down and slings off his guitar and gear. "Well, it may not be the most luxurious of places, but least you can say you spent a night on royal property."
