Ace actually took a few trots back at the sight of not only another filly he bullied standing up to him, but an adult. "You little snitch!"
"Yeah, I'm a snitch. But I'd rathe be a snitch than you right now," Babs replied, then got serious. "Untie the filly and get the buck out of here before my siste has tah drag yah off tah your mothe."
Ace took a few hoof steps back, looking up at Plum before nervously going over and untieing Ladybug, though he let her fall on the ground without catching. However, when he looked back, he was surprised to see Babs right up in front of him. She gave him the most frighting look she could, surprising him and sending him falling backwards into a trash can himself. The older pegasus foal quickly fled in embarrassment and shame.
Ladybug curled up, still crying and holding her head. "Y-you're not going to hurt me...a-are you?"
"What? I'd never think of it," said Babs, stepping aside so Rave and Plum could come over. "Plum, I think she's hurt."
