“I believe I have figured it out.” Discord stated as he, Luna and Twilight left the room where his wife and daughter were recovering from giving birth. “We have been going about this shadow business at the wrong angle.”
“We are open to any ideas thou may present to us.” Luna said as she looked at him.
“I believe Celestia is still possessed, but not with the shadow that possessed you Luna, but she is possessed by a lesser demon.” He started to grin. “And I think I know how to lure it away.”
“What are you thinking?” Twilight asked warily.
He started to laugh more. “I’m going to offer myself to it.”
Both Luna and Twilight looked at him.
“Don’t you both start talking me out of it at once. The outpouring of your concern is overwhelming.” He said sarcastically as he made a face.
Luna looked at him directly. “We do not think it is wise for thou to do this. Thou is quite powerful; we would hate to have to punish thou for something ye cannot help.”
Discord looked at her in surprise. “I think I can overpower this lesser demon, but I’ll need your help Luna. Same with you Twilight.”
“Me?” Twilight asked. “Why me?”
“You see, this lesser demon I believe is working for my brother. My brother is a stronger demon in Tartarus and cannot leave that realm without Aidoneus’ permission but is sending this demon to torment my family and initially… the main possession of Celestia was to lure me and my children out to be possessed as well. It didn’t know that LillyRose was as strong as she is.” He looked at Twilight. “You are going to disguise yourself as Lilly in a way to lure this demon out.”
“I don’t know about this Discord.” Twilight said as she swallowed hard.
“We will have to face this demon in the dream realm. In Celestia’s dreams.” Luna said. “We suggest we do it immediately.”
“Yes, I want to do it before Fluttershy finds out.” He suddenly stopped as he looked back at the room where his wife and daughter were resting.
Twilight saw his look of concern. “Are you sure you want to do this? If you are possessed…”
He leaned over to her and placed his finger on her chin. “That is why I am having you and Luna help me. You both have the power to restrain me.”
Twilight started to blush and she pulled away from him. “If you think so.” She still felt uncomfortable with how he made her feel and her image of him in restraints made her feel weird and uncomfortable.
Luna turned. “Twilight, ye must go to bed, as we explained before, thou has to be asleep before ye can enter the dreams of others.” All three of them went down the hall towards Celestia’s bedroom.
Luna nodded. “Yes, very misleading.” She pointed to another bed. “Twilight we shall try this again like earlier.”
“But what about the box?” Twilight said as she looked more at Discord than at Luna.
“The magic had already been spent.” Luna said. “Thou will have to make due.”
Twilight gulped. “Alright.” She went over to the bed crawled in it and settled down under the blankets.
Discord turned to Luna. “Promise me that if I am possessed and unable to be controlled, you tell Fluttershy and my family that I love them very much.”
Luna smiled. “Ye can tell them after this is done.” Both of them waited until Twilight was asleep. When she was, Luna blinked as her eyes glowed like the moon. Discord hesitantly reached out and touched Celestia’s temple.
