Story: Paradox’s Despair – Chapter 80

80.

Paradox and Silver appeared next to a bench that was along a trail in White Tail Woods. On the bench was a piece of paper held down with a rock. Paradox walked to the bench and set Silver down on the bench.

Silver blinked at him. “Now that we’re here what are we going to do?”

He pointed at the paper under the rock. “What is that?”

Silver moved the rock and looked at the piece of paper. She unfolded it. “It says: ‘Say the magic word, trot twenty spaces to the left of the bench and find another piece of paper’.” Silver said as she read the note. She opened the paper and there was a word written on it. “Revlis.” She said it out loud.

Paradox suddenly disappeared when she said the word written on the paper. “Doxy?” She gasped. She looked around for him. “Where’d you go?”

Paradox’s voice drifted to her from all directions. “Read the instructions and follow them.”

“Ok…” Silver said as she looked at the paper again. She followed the clue and went twenty spaces left of the bench. She found a piece of paper stuck to a tree, she opened it and read it. ‘Fly over to Luna Falls and land on the rock closest to the falls and read the magic words that are written on the paper there.’

Silver spread her wings and flew to Luna Falls and looked around and saw a large rock next to the falls in the middle of the lake. She landed and saw a piece of paper with a red rose on top of it. She gently moved the rose off it and opened the piece of paper. She blinked at the words and tried to figure out how to say them out loud. “Emyrramuoylliw Revlis.” She managed to say.

With a loud pop Paradox appeared in front of her. He was on one knee and was smiling up at her. “Well? Will you?”

Silver blinked at Paradox in shock. “Will I what?” She asked.

He grinned as he gently grabbed the piece of paper from under her hoof. “Read it backwards.” He said as he held it up to her to read again.

Silver looked at the words. “Revlis is my name.” She smiled. “Let me see, Oh…” she suddenly shuffled her hooves as she looked at him; her eyes filling with tears. “Oh… Doxy…” She breathed out.

Paradox grinned as he brought a box from his vest pocket. “You have made… me… very… h… happy.” He swallowed hard trying not to stutter as he opened the box revealing the engagement ring he had chosen for her it was a simple ring gold and silver band with a large blue gem on it. “I will say it as well. Silver, I love you very much; will you marry me?”proposal2

Silver smiled as tears ran down her face. “Yes, of course I will. I love you Doxy.” She leapt at him, he was taken by surprise; he snapped the box shut as she tackled him and they both fell into the water that surrounded them. He held her tightly as they kissed each other passionately.

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.canimmmarry“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.

Lilly was completely baffled. There was a white rose growing in the middle of the barrier. Paradox saw it and pointed it out to her and she tried to approach it but the ringing in her ears got so strong she was on the verge of passing out when Paradox and Zero pulled her back. “That is the key to breaking the spell.” She said.white-roses-

“How do we get to it?” Zero asked. “If you get even close to it, you almost fall under the enchantment.”

Lilly sat down. “There has to be a way, maybe if I teleport next to it?”

Paradox was rubbing his chin. “And if you pass out just as you teleport next to it? What will we do?”

Lilly shook her head. “I…” She began but then stopped talking when she saw movement over where Discord, Silver and Twilight was. Silver had stood up and she was walking slowly over towards the rose.

Paradox glanced at what Lilly was looking at and he stared. “Silver…?”

Lilly put her hoof on Paradox. “She’s not awake. She’s sleep walking, but why is she… walking to the rose? Maybe we can… get her to bring it to us.”

“How can we do that?” Zero asked.

“Paradox has to ask her to bring it to him.” Lilly smiled at her brother. “Go ahead Dox, get her attention and ask her to bring the rose to us.”

Paradox looked at Silver as she walked in her sleep. “Silver, can you bring me the white rose? I want to see it.”

Silver had her eyes half closed as she looked towards him. “Paradox… You are here? Were you going to ask me something?” She said softly.

Paradox looked confused. “Ask you something?”

Lilly nodded and pointed urgently to the rose.

“Yes, can you bring me the rose?” He asked.

“That wasn’t the question.” Silver said softly as she looked over at the white rose. “I’ll bring you that, but you need to ask me that question you have wanted to ask me.”

Lilly looked at Paradox and she saw him physically shaking. “S… sure… bring me… the R-r-r… rose and I… I will ask t… the question.” He stuttered.

Zero looked at Paradox. “When did you start stuttering?”

Lilly blinked at how uncomfortable her brother got. “Dox, you only stutter when you get too nervous, and you never get nervous.”

“I… I’m n… not… stu… stuttering.” He stammered as he looked back at Silver as she grabbed the rose delicately in her mouth. She started to walk towards them slowly.

Silver stopped right in front of Paradox and she dropped the rose and Lilly grabbed it quickly in her mouth before it fell on the ground. Silver looked up at Paradox. “Ask me your question.”

“S… Silver…” Paradox stuttered as he bit his lower lip. “I…I can’t ask you this question wh… while … you’re a… asleep.”

“Paradox, please ask me.” Silver looked at him her silver magenta eyes shined. “Think of it as practice when you ask me while I am awake.”

Paradox swallowed hard as he suddenly kneeled in front of her and grabbed her hoof. “Silver, will you… M… Marry me?” He asked her.

Silver Dash slowly nodded as she blinked her eyes. “I will.”

Lilly blinked in surprise as she almost dropped the rose. “Is that why you were stuttering?”

Paradox nodded as he pet Silver’s hoof as Silver suddenly lay back down and fell back asleep. “Yeah, the… ques… question makes me… stutter. I haven’t asked Rainbow Dash if I could marry her daughter.” He looked worriedly at Silver as she slept again.

“That is rough.” Zero said. “I guess I am happy Lilly and I eloped.”

Lilly blinked then looked at the rose. “This isn’t anything but a regular rose.”

“It is a regular rose! It’s also my home!” A white wisp flew by and landed on Lilly’s muzzle.

Lilly looked at the wisp with her eyes crossed. “What? Are you responsible for them being under enchantment?”

“Who? The tall one, the repressed one and the one in love?” The wisp asked.

“Yes.” Lilly nodded and the wisp made a small squeak as it held onto her.

“Yeah, I don’t like things bothering the pretty water wall. I worked many years to make it look pretty like this.”

“Can you break the spell they are under?” Lilly asked. “If you do I will take them away from here to not bother you again.”

“But, I like talking to them. They amuse me… except the tall one… he doesn’t amuse me… he’s too intelligent.” The wisp seemed to sound annoyed.

“Well, also I wouldn’t mind if you let some of that water through? That water wall will still look nice with a small waterfall in the middle. That is a trend now; they call it a water feature.”

The wisp made a slight “Oooh” Sound and flew from Lilly’s muzzle and over to the bodies of Discord, Silver and Twilight. It alighted on each of their muzzles and it flew up to the wall. Lilly lost sight of it.

“It’s about time.” Discord slowly sat up. “I thought I was going to die from boredom.”

Twilight blinked while she sat up, she rubbed her temple. “Oh, my head.” She looked around spotted Discord next to her; she got up quickly as she blushed looking away from him.

Silver looked up and saw Paradox looking down at her. “Doxy? What happened?”

Paradox knelt down next to her and pulled her into his lap. “Nothing to be worried about.” He grinned as he kissed her gently on the lips.

Discord stood up and stretched. “So I guess we knock down this barrier?”

Lilly shook her head. “No Dad… I made a deal with the creator of the barrier.”

Twilight looked at Lilly in shock. “We need the water? What sort of deal did you make?”

Lilly looked at the wall for a few moments. “I am sure that the deal I made will help us at least a little bit, I suggest we don’t wait around for too long.” She saw one of the leaks that was trickling down the wall was starting to grow larger letting more water spill forth.

Discord noticed the water too. “Yep, we might need to make a hasty retreat, maybe a teleportation spell?”

He grabbed Twilight before she could protest and snapped his fingers.

Lilly hugged Zero to her and clicked her tongue. Paradox teleported too holding Silver close to him.

purpleroseSilver was walking carefully around the beautiful purple roses and kept her wings up and ready in case something bad happened while she examined them. She turned around a couple times when she heard a noise. All she saw was roses many different roses but all the same color, purple.

She turned one more time and was facing Paradox and he was slowly kneeling in front of her. She put her hoof to her face as he opened the box he held out to her. An engagement ring was there and she saw Paradox moving his lips but she couldn’t hear him.silvergaspShe felt tears well up in her eyes as she put her hoof out to him. The floor around her started to fall away again and Paradox disappeared. “No… I… didn’t get to tell him that I will… my love. I…” she started to flap her wings before she began to fall. She turned and was flipped around. She was falling again even with wings and she started to panic as the ground raced up to her this time she landed and she was surrounded by white roses.
