Paradox stood with Silver Dash at her mom’s house in Cloudsdale. It looked beautiful and large. Silver led him through the house to a dining room. He glanced around the place. “Aunt Rainbow does pretty well.”
“She doesn’t like it. Says it’s not nice like a regular comfy cloud.” Silver giggled.
“Your mom is strange sometimes.” He muttered.
“I find that funny coming from a child of Discord.” Rainbow Dash said as she flew over to them and landed expertly on the floor in front of them. “So? You wanted to talk to me?” She looked directly at Paradox.
“Um yeah, I do but, well… privately actually.” Paradox felt his cheeks starting to burn.
Silver blinked. “Why?”
He blinked at Silver. “Because… um I have to ask your mom something.”
She blushed at him. “Really?”
He nodded and tried to keep his face from burning.
Rainbow Dash watched the spectacle for a moment. “Okay, come on Dox we’ll talk in… I guess this room over here.” She opened a door and flew in Paradox followed her while shrugging to Silver Dash.
After they went in the room Silver started to run in place and giggle with giddiness. “Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh!”
The room was a study, there were book shelves with trophies all over and one shelf dedicated to books. A series of books about Daring Do. Rainbow Dash sat on the desk. “So Dox, what do you want to ask me?”
He swallowed hard. “Um… D… d… aunt Dash. I… I…”
“Paradox? What is going on? I never heard you stutter before?” She looked at him quizzically.“This is… I mean…” He closed his eyes tightly. “I want your permission to marry your daughter.” He blurted it out quickly before he lost his nerve. Slowly he opened his eyes and looked at Rainbow Dash.
Rainbow Dash was looking at him. “Did you just ask me my permission to marry Silver?”
He nodded. “Y… yes. I want to marry her, I want to be with her and and…” he started to blush.
“And paint her like you did the other day?” She laughed. “Awesome painting by the way, she had more colors in her mane than I do.”
Paradox’s ears went up. “I well… Um I… she does make an awesome canvas.” He was blushing profusely. “So? Can I please marry her? She makes me happy.” He felt his paws sweat.
Rainbow Dash stared at him and watched as he tried hard to look comfortable under her gaze. She enjoyed making him squirm and fidget. After as few moments she decided to answer. “Sure, you can marry her, but promise me grandchildren.”
“Oh! Thank you… wait… how soon do you want grandchildren?”
Rainbow Dash shrugged. “Whenever. It’s no rush.”
“Aunt Rainbow, you made me the happiest draconequus ever.” He went over to her and hugged her.
“Yeah, well don’t ruin my reputation for being tough. You got to say I was difficult to convince.” she winked as she preened her feathers.
“Sure. Thank you so much.” He suddenly felt his stomach knot up. “Oh, now I have to find a way to ask her.”
“Good luck with that.” Rainbow laughed.
