Lilly walked into the throne room with Zero following behind her. Discord sat up at seeing Lilly and her old guard.
Discord asked. “Lilly, I thought you left yesterday?”
“Yeah, well… I had to come back. I had to… take Zero with me.” She blushed.
Discord looked at Zero. “I see.” He then looked at Lilly. “Why do you think that I would be happy with letting him accompany you in this quest for discovery?”
“Because… I love him and he can protect me.” Lilly shuffled her hoof as she blushed.
Discord’s eyebrow went up and he looked at Zero. “I have a question for you.”
Zero saluted. “Yes sir?”
“Fine, go together. Just please… be careful. I don’t want to go back into the Gryphon Kingdom looking for you. Feathers on my neck gives me hives.” He scratched his neck. “Oh, and don’t do anything I wouldn’t do. On second thought; don’t do anything I would do too.”
