Story: Life with Paradox – Chapter 21


“The suspense is killing me.” Rainbow Dash got up and walked over to the waiting room entrance and jumped back when the door opened and Paradox came out.

Paradox looked at his mother-in-law. “Hey RD.”

“Well? I want to see my daughter and my grandchild!” Rainbow Dash demanded and poked Paradox in the chest.

“Alright.” He smiled as he opened the door for Silver. “Dear, the natives are restless.”

Silver walked out and smiled. “Hey Mom. What’s… eep!” Rainbow Dash hugged her daughter tightly. Silver hugged her mother for a long moment. “I’m alright mom.”

Rainbow let her go and looked at her. “Looks like you lost some weight. Remember after having a foal, you have to get back into shape. So where is my grandchild?”

Paradox already went to the observation room. “In here. The nurse should be ready.”

Discord walked past him and ruffled Paradox’s mane. “Proud of you.”

Every pony went into the room where the window was to the nursery. There were several bassinets in the nursery with several foals. Rainbow Dash flew from one side of the window to the other looking into bassinets hoping that one of them was her grandchild. “That one looks strong. Oh maybe that one there?”

Discord’s eye twitched as Rainbow Dash kept flying past him.

Fluttershy looked in the window and saw two bassinets next to one another with twins. “Oh… Oh my…”

Paradox walked in. “Did you guess which foal is ours?” He asked.

Fluttershy spoke up quietly. “Um… I think I know…”

“Ya’ll have ta’ tell us Paradox.” Big Mac said. “An’ do it quickly before Dash has an anxiety attack.”

“Or I make her wings disappear.” Discord grumbled.

Rainbow Dash looked around. “Where’s Silver?”

Paradox pointed into the nursery. “She went back in to stand near the baby.”

They all looked and saw Silver walk into the nursery. She waved and smiled at them as she walked toward the front of the nursery. She walked forward and turned around in between the two bassinets with the twins. She then looked up at them and looked down at the twin foals.

Rainbow Dash blinked and let out a sudden squeak. “Twins! That is totally awesome!”

Fluttershy blushed. “I knew it…” She sniffled as she started to tear up. “Twins.”

Discord went over to Fluttershy and rubbed her shoulders. “You guessed or did Scarlet tell you this?”

She shook her head. “No… The twins have Doxy’s eyes. Look at them.”

Discord looked and smiled. “You’re right.” He laughed. “They better give them back.”

Paradox leaned on the glass as he looked at Silver and the foals. Slowly he signed, ‘I love you’ to Silver. He then signed, ‘you’re beautiful’ to her and Silver suddenly blushed.

Apple Jack watched him do the sign language and wondered what he was doing. “What is going on?”

Paradox’s ears went up. “What? Oh um… I’m talking to Silver.”

“How do ya do that?” AJ asked.

“Well, I use my paws.” He moved his fingers. “I just told her that I loved her and I think she is beautiful.”

Discord chuckled as he approached and signed something to his son.

“Dad! Silver knows what you just signed!” Paradox blushed and looked over to Silver and she was looking at Discord with her eyes wide.

“Sorry Dox.” Discord glanced at Silver. “Nope, not sorry.” He grinned then signed something at Silver and her eyes widened more as she suddenly shook her head fast.

“Dad! Stop it.” Paradox said and pushed his father out of the observation room.

“What are their names?” Rainbow Dash asked.

Paradox was happy to answer. “Selene and Solana.”

“Oh my goodness, those are beautiful names.” Fluttershy sighed. “I cannot wait to hold them.”

“I can’t wait till I can spoil them!” RD laughed.
