Holly: It’s nice that I didn’t fail, that would’ve sucked . . . But passing tests isn’t special for me — it’s just expected.
Laurel: . . . Less than one percent of magical girls have reached this level at your age.
Holly: So it wouldn’t be expected from the other 99%! But it is from me.
Laurel: Would it help if I told you how proud I am that you worked so hard to get here?
Holly: Would you not be proud if I told you it wasn’t hard? If it all came easily to me?
Laurel: Okay, yes, I see how that wouldn’t be as uplifting as I wanted.
I was afraid giving you both letters would be too much excitement for one day . . . Now I just hope this other one will be enough.
