"I don't hate snow all that bad, mind you."
Jack snorted, letting himself glide over Aster as they walked to see his face. When he saw nothing but open honesty he stopped, dropping to the ground somewhat clumsily in a pile of snow.
"Can I quote you on that?"(more) he asked, spitting out a leaf when Aster took hold of him by his sweater and pulled him back to his feet. "Not a chance, bucko," Aster said, paw moving to Jack's shoulder and forcing him down to squat behind a bush, just a few feet away from the Egg Hunt.
"...you do know I don't need to hide, right? They can't see me."
"Better safe'n sorry, mate," Bunny whispered, leaning against Jack to point at a snowy hill. "Now look. There's a couple googies stuck under there."
Jack looked over to see Bunny looking directly at him, ears drawn down and mouth curved into a pout.
"Are you...are you trying to give me puppy eyes?" Jack asked, bursting into laughter when Aster startled at that and prepared to hop away to sulk.
"Wait, wait," Jack said, grabbing him by his forearm and forcing him back to their hiding spot. "I can take care of it."
Bunny watched him materialize a snowball in his hands, tongue sticking out in concentration as he stood and took aim. It hit the snow bluff perfectly, and Aster hummed in appreciation.
"I should let you test out my boomerangs. You've got a killer toss, Snowflake."
Jack chuckled, looking away before one of Aster's large fingers pushed into his cheek.
"Ah, I knew it. You're an obvious showpony that can't take a compliment quietly."
"What?" he asked, frowning.
"Look at the blush on you!" Aster crowed, nudging him in the shoulder again playfully. Jack only scoffed.(less)
