Silver Dash swallowed hard as she looked at Big Mac, her father. She remembered always visiting Sweet Apple Acres with her mother and playing with Crispin and being watched by Apple Bloom. She had been held a few times by Big Mac and she remembered him giving her a kiss or two on her forehead. She remembered that he’d smile at her whenever she accomplished something. “Hello um, Dad.” She whispered to him.
“Silver.” He didn’t really know what to say to his daughter, he never really held any long conversations with any pony except for Rainbow Dash when they were alone. He felt nervous and he looked down at his hooves. “I’m sorry.”
Silver smiled. “Why are you sorry? Mom told me everything, it was ultimately her decision, not yours.”
“I wanted ta marry yer Ma, I asked her many times. She kept turning me down saying she didn’t need a stallion in her life.” He blurted out. “I love yer ma, but she don’t really love me back. I love ya too. Look at ya on yer wedding day. Beautiful and happy. I got to hold ya, after ya was born. Ya looked so small and helpless and I didn’t want to let ya go.” His eyes teared up. “I love ya Silver. I’m happy ta walk ya down the aisle and show every pony that I’m yer pa, and proud of ya.”
“I’m proud to call you my Dad.” She kissed Mac on his cheek. “I love you Dad.”
“We can do this.” He said as he moved up beside her. “Are ya ready ta be married to the pony of yer dreams?”
“He’s a draconequus Dad.”
Big Mac nodded. “Eeyup, I guess he is then.” His ears perked up when the music started in the throne room. “So Silver are ya ready?”
She started to breathe heavy. “Yes, I can… do this. I can. Oh! I can’t! I’m scared.” She suddenly hugged Big Mac tightly.
Mac blinked and rubbed her back. “It’s alright Silver ya don’t have ta. It’s up to ya’ll.”
She moved away from him and blinked. “Are you kidding? I love Doxy, I can get married.” She righted herself and swallowed hard. “Ready Dad?”
Big Mac sighed. “Eeyup.”
The bride’s maid Sprinkle Icing and the best stallion Crispin walked up and looked at Big Mac and Silver before entering the throne room. “Ya look gorgeous.” Crispin said. “Wow.”
She smiled shyly. “Thank you.”
LillyRose and Zero walked up next. “You look beautiful.” Lilly complimented. Zero nodded.
Scarlet Grace and her husband came up. “Whoa, hot.” Flight Strike said and got nudged by Scarlet Grace. “You look great.” He grinned.
“Beautiful as always Silver.” Scarlet Grace said. “So happy you’re going to be part of the family.”
They all entered the throne room. Silver and Big Mac waited for their cue.
