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.
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.
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.
