Story: Life with Paradox – Chapter 11

He was laughing, why was he laughing? It wasn’t that funny. Why won’t he stop?laughingparadox

Silver looked at him. “Are you feeling alright?”

Paradox kept laughing as tears fell from his eyes. “No.” He managed to say and caught his breath as he looked at the doctor. “What did you say?”

“It’s a high possibly that Silver is going to have twins.” Epona repeated.

He was about to burst out laughing again. “Why would we have twins?” He asked as the urge to snicker rose.

“Your father was a twin, you’re a twin. High probability.” Epona answered. She looked at Paradox and blinked. “Are you alright?”

He stared at her. “Yeah. Peachy. Why?” He snickered and tried to compose himself.

“You have a crazed look on your face. When did your fangs grow in?” She asked.

“I’m not crazed am I? And I had fangs for a while they just recently grew in larger.”

Epona looked doubtfully at him. “Come here.”

He nodded as he snickered moving closer to Epona. “Yes?”

She looked into his eyes and then made him open his mouth. She looked at his paws, horns and fangs. “Unusual fur growth, claws won’t retract… hmm. Growth potion?” She asked casually.

Silver and Paradox looked at her in shock. “Yes.” they said together.

“You youngsters always in a hurry.” She muttered.

“Wait, no it was an accidental ingestion.” Paradox grinned he was still feeling giddy with laughter.

“Oh, you should have come to me sooner. Sounds like magical poisoning.” She disappeared and instantly reappeared holding with her magic, a bottle. “This should stop anything new that shall come up. It will also help with your claws and fangs.”

He looked at the bottle, it had some purple capsules in it. “I don’t trust it.”

“I didn’t ask if you trusted the medicine. Take one a day for five days and you’ll notice the difference. If you want to stop the changes to your body, I suggest you take it.” She looked at him.

“Can I take one now?” He asked and started to chuckle.

“Please do.” The Epona muttered.

Paradox took a capsule out of the bottle and looked at it. “It’s the size of a horse pill.”

Silver giggled. “You’re part horse.”

He nodded. “Yeah, I am… whoa awesome. Talking horses.” He took the capsule.

“As I was saying…” Epona turned to look at Silver. “You might have twins, but probably not. But I’d never rule that out. Look who the father is. It runs in his family. Yet they’re fraternal twins so…”

Silver nodded. “So the possibility is smaller of having twins.”

Epona nodded. “Let me check you.”

Paradox was sitting in a chair looking at his paws. Just staring at them and not paying attention to the Doctor or his mate. When he heard a heartbeat he sat up and looked over. “What is that?”

“That is your wife’s heart.” Epona replied and waited until he walked over before she moved the Doppler wand down. The sound changed to rapid fluttering noises. “That sound is the foal’s heart beat.”

Paradox’s mouth suddenly hung open. He looked at Silver and saw her smile at him. He placed his paws on his head. “I heard this before, but it’s totally different when it’s your own.” He smiled as he went over to Silver. “That’s our baby. Our foal. Silver, you’re awesome.” He kissed her.

Silver was blushing. “Oh… you helped.”

“With the fun part!” He laughed. Silver giggled along with him as she blushed.

Epona sighed and rolled her eyes. “Paradox, be sure to take those pills daily until they are gone. Plus help your wife as much as possible.”

He looked at her. “Help her do what?”

“Things around the house. Take care of her.”

“I do that already.” He smiled and kissed Silver’s cheek. “Don’t I?”

“Looking sexy isn’t helping. She means doing chores.” Silver replied as she pushed him with her hoof.

“Where is the bride and groom?” Pinkie and Sprinkle said in unison. Both mother and daughter were pacing opposite one another as they waited.

“Don’t worry so much.” Fluttershy said as she held Snafu and watched Pinkie and Sprinkle pace. “They know about the reception. They’ll be here.”

Twilight helped Celestia walk into the ballroom. “Just sit here Princess, I’ll be right back with some tea for you.”

Luna walked over to her sister. “How are thee?”

Celestia looked at her sister. “I could be better. I shouldn’t have let you and Twilight talk me into coming to the wedding. I’m exhausted by just sitting up.”

“’Tis was best ye had been here. The ponies respect thee and seeing thee has made them less frightened on the future of the kingdom.” Luna stated as she sat with her sister. “Discord has been a good replacement until thou returns. There was never a doubt that ye would return.”

“There wasn’t? Twilight told me that she thought she’d almost lost me.” Celestia said.

“Twilight is very excitable sister. Is one of the reasons why we didn’t choose her for thou’s replacement.” Luna said calmly. “In a few more years, she may be a better choice.”

Celestia nodded as she looked at Twilight as she came back to the table. “I agree with you Luna.”

Twilight held the water up to Celestia’s lips. “Please drink this Princess. It has healing properties.”

Celestia just stared into space like she always did but she drank the water slowly as Twilight tilted the glass to her.

Luna watched carefully as Twilight administered the water. “Tell me Twilight, where is the Spring of Eternity?”

Twilight looked at Luna smiling as she was about to say exactly where it was but she stopped. “It’s right on the… wait. He was right…” She blinked.

“Who was right?” Luna asked.

“Discord, he said I would not remember where the spring was…” she looked at Luna apologetically. “He was right… I don’t remember.”

Celestia blinked slowly and put up her hoof sweeping the glass of water onto the floor where it shattered. She moved slightly and shook her head she placed her hooves on the sides of her head. “No… NO! NO!” She started yelling.nocelestia

Twilight and Luna were shocked by the sudden reaction by Celestia. The princess was suddenly more animated she had been in almost a year. Both of them advanced carefully to Celestia.

“Sister, are ye quite alright?” Luna asked as she approached her.

“Celestia, its ok…” Twilight said as she approached too. “It’s me, Twilight Sparkle and your Sister Luna.”

“NO!” Celestia screamed suddenly. “NO!” She stood up quickly and spread her wings out.no

“We need to restrain her!” Luna yelled out. “She cannot be allowed to fly in her state.”

Twilight nodded as she used her magic to make Celestia’s wings fold back. “She’s strong!” She gasped.

“We know.” Luna said as she used her magic too. “She is still not healed. We thought the Spring of Eternity would help.”

“It sure gave her more energy.” Twilight huffed out.

Celestia was breathing hard as she stared at both Luna and Twilight. She was frowning with her head down and her breath came out as snorts through her nostrils. “No…” she said again as she slowly took a couple of steps and collapsed, falling asleep almost instantly.

“Perhaps we shall give her less of the water tomorrow? Maybe a little goes a long way?” Luna asked.

“I’m beginning to think I was tricked in giving Celestia the wrong water.” Twilight muttered as she frowned.

Luna glanced at Twilight. “Thou said that Discord drank the water in front of thou. How is that a trick?”

“I don’t know, but I have my suspicions. I think I will confront him about it.”

“Don’t be so quick to judge.” Luna stated. “Be sure thou has a valid argument before thou confronts.”

“But, Princess Luna… How can you let him rule in place of Celestia? Do you have any idea what he does during the day?”

“Yes, we do.” Luna frowned. “We have witnessed what Discord does during the day. He conducts matters of the kingdom during the day, he listens to the citizens and he does what needs done. What is he doing that makes thou disapprove?”

Twilight sat for a moment, unable to come up with a valid argument. “He’s planning something. That is all I have to say.”

Luna shook her head. “That is not a valid reason until he does something ye will have to endure until Celestia is well again.”

Taking a vacation from the office wasn’t a good idea now that she thought about it, since she’d come back with a little more than just a souvenir. Epona felt so uncomfortable today as she slowly opened the door to the examination room.eponapreg

“Good morning,” She said cheerfully and stopped when she saw LillyRose sitting on the examination table. “Lady Chaos…” She suddenly bowed.

“Dr. Epona, please don’t bow, geez you helped bring me into the world.” Lilly sighed.

“Lilly, you’re pregnant?” Epona asked as she looked at Lilly and saw her little belly bulge.

“Yeah…” Lilly blushed suddenly. “Mom suggested I see you.”

“I see, so where is the father?” Epona asked.

“He’s working. One of Dad’s guards now.”

“Oh, whose guard was he before?” She asked while she started the examination on Lilly.

“Um, mine.” Lilly blushed.

“Oh… I see…” She grinned as she brought a stethoscope down to listen to her.

Lilly looked at Dr. Epona and her ears suddenly went forward. “You’re pregnant too.”

Epona looked at herself. “Yes, so I am. You’re about as observant as your father.”

“Dad is very observant apparently.” She blushed again.

“Let me guess… he knew you had been with some pony?”

“Yes. How did you know?” Lilly asked.

“Lucky guess,” She shrugged. “Father’s always have a sixth sense when it comes to their daughters. Especially to the ones they are the most connected to. You are like him in so many ways. Lady Chaos.” Epona winked.

“That title… I sometimes like it but sometimes it irritates me.” Lilly sighed and jumped when Epona strapped an instrument to her belly.

“Okay, let’s see.” Epona said cheerfully as she moved a wand over Lilly’s stomach.

Lilly heard noises come from the machine a heartbeat strong and firm. “Oh! That’s my heart.”

“Yes, your heart is strong. That’s great.” She used her magic and moved the machine down more until it picked up a fluttering fast beat. Lilly’s ears went forward. “That is your foal. Sounds nice and healthy.”

Lilly blinked. “Oh my goodness. I wish Zero was here. Do you know what it’ll be?”

Epona started to chuckle. “I don’t know, you have a 50 percent chance of getting a boy or a girl.”

“Oh… that narrows it down. Thanks doctor.” Lilly replied sarcastically.

Epona grinned. “I’m always willing to help. Your sister is going to foal soon. I am so happy to be your family’s Doctor. How is your father and mother?”

“Dad is here with mom in the other exam room.” Lilly stated.

Epona blinked suddenly. “They’re here?”

Lilly nodded. “Yeah, mom is pregnant again.”

“At her age?” A look of worry went across Epona’s face.

“Epona? What do you mean at her age? You’re older than mom and you’re pregnant.”

“I’m also an Alicorn. My body ages differently than other ponies.” She unstrapped the device from Lilly. “You are doing very well, try to not do too many spells where you manipulate your body. Too much magic will affect your foal.”

Lilly blinked at the news. “How do you know that?”

“As I said before, I’m an Alicorn.” She smiled.

Twilight had helped Discord through the day with the politics of the kingdom. “Thanks Twilight, that was helpful of you. Thank goodness you knew some of those answers because I think I would have just turned them into a bunch of chickens.” He muttered as he yawned and stretched on the throne.bawk

Twilight gasped. “You really wouldn’t; would you?”

He looked at her and grinned. “Oh… no… never.” A halo slowly formed over his head and it twisted slightly then tilted.

“Hmmm.” Twilight muttered. “So Discord, when would be the best time to check on the fountain?”

Discord stood up, stretching and looked at her. “Well, it won’t be today. I have to entertain my sister. Is it urgent about Celestia? I know you have been trying to help with her health… I’ve got to tell you something though… I don’t think the water will help.”

“Why don’t you think the water will help?” Twilight asked.

“I tried it on Scarlet Grace. It didn’t help with her blindness and deafness. I believe it will purge poisons, but I don’t know about the problems of the mind.”

“It’s a risk I am willing to take.” Twilight stated.

Discord nodded. “Okay… In a month, we’ll go to the fountain. In the meantime, don’t give up searching for a different solution. Thanks again Twilight. I have to lower the sun and have dinner.”

As he finished saying dinner the throne room door opened and Misery walked in followed by Bleak Claw. “Dissy, we’re here!”

Twilight looked at Discord’s sister and backed away. Discord’s sister made her very uncomfortable. “Um, bye Discord, see you later. Say hello to Fluttershy for me.” She then blinked out.twilight

Misery stopped in mid stride. “Dissy? Who was that?”

“That was Princess Twilight Sparkle.” He said. “Apparently she’s nervous around new arrivals.”

“Oh! So you’re enjoying the princesses time then? Having some alone time with them?” She teased and nudged her husband in the side. Bleak Claw just righted himself and fluffed out his feathers.

Discord sighed and looked at his sister. “No Misery, Fluttershy is my one and only.”

“Just keep telling yourself that Dissy, that princess was looking at you like she wanted you.” She teased more.

Discord’s eye twitched. “Twilight? No, I fully doubt that. Come on, dinner will be ready soon and I still have to make the sun set.” His sister still made him annoyed and what she was suggesting was ridiculous. “Twilight is just a friend. A best friend to Fluttershy, come along.” He strode out of the throne room past his sister and didn’t wait for her to follow him.
