Discord appeared outside Epona Calliope’s house. He looked around then walked to the door and knocked.
“My daughter LillyRose is in labor. I’d hate to bother you but, you are the only one that I know that can help us.”
“But Discord, I have my own foal to take care of, couldn’t you ask the other local pony doctor?” She suggested.
“I can foal sit for you. If you would just help my daughter. Please.” He said softly “I’ll take you right to her.”
“I don’t think you’d make a good foal sitter…” She said and suddenly squeaked when he picked her up.
“I’m a father of Paradox, LillyRose and Scarlet Grace. I think I can take care of a foal for a couple hours.” He teleported them all.
“I can’t do this!” Lilly yelled out. Sweat was rolling down her face and she looked at Zero. “Zero…. I can’t believe you… did this to me.”
“I… Lilly… that’s not fair.” Zero stuttered and looked at his wife in shock.
“Never fear. Discord is here!” Discord entered the room carrying Epona at arm’s length. “I brought the doctor.” He had a baby sling across his chest where Epona’s foal was.
Epona had a frown on her face, had her arms crossed as she looked at Lilly, Zero and Fluttershy. “Yeah, I’m here against my will. Let’s all celebrate.”
“Discord…?” Fluttershy said sternly at him.
“I just brought our favorite goddess of horses and birth to my daughter. You should be happy my love.” Discord said as he placed Epona down softly.
“Don’t worry Fluttershy, I’ll help LillyRose.” She then looked at Fluttershy and gulped. “I suggest you sit down soon Fluttershy.”
Fluttershy looked at Epona curiously. “Um… okay? I am glad you are here to take care of Lilly, where is your child?”
“Your husband is holding my foal, but I suggest a new foal sitter in about twenty seconds.” She said as she trotted over to Lilly. “LillyRose?”
Lilly looked at her doctor as she panted. “Yes?”
“You’re breathing well; where is your brother? I think he and his fiancé needs to watch my foal soon, because your mother… is going to go into labor in a few seconds.” She said quietly without Discord hearing her.
Zero and Lilly’s ears went forward and they both asked. “What!”
“Don’t worry.” Epona stated as she looked over Lilly. She magically summoned a stethoscope and she put them in her ears and listened to her. A couple other things magically appeared that would aid in the birth of a foal. “Everything will be alright.”
Paradox came running into the room with blankets and towels. “I brought all I could.” He said panting. He watched as they magically floated out of his paws. One was magically draped over Lilly’s stomach and back legs.
“Thank you Paradox. Now get my foal from your father please.” Epona stated quietly.
“What? Why does he need to hold him?” Discord asked suddenly as he took the foal from the sling and started to place the sling around Paradox’s chest.
“AH!” Fluttershy gasped out suddenly and clutched her stomach.
Discord’s eyes widened. “Fluttershy?” He quickly handed Epona’s foal to Paradox.
“AH!!!” LillyRose gasped aloud too.
“Looks like this is going to be a busy room.” Epona said calmly. “Discord, tend to your wife. She’s in labor as well.”
Silver Dash showed up with a bucket of water. She put it down and saw that Fluttershy as well as her friend LillyRose was in labor. She looked over at Paradox who was holding a foal in his paws and looking completely lost. “What did I just walk in on?”
