Story: Life with Paradox – Chapter 24

24.

Paradox and Silver walked through the Ponyville market place. He pushed the carriage where both twins were snuggled against one another. Silver was looking at produce as Paradox stood and rocked the carriage back and forth to keep the foals asleep when a couple mares came up to him. He didn’t notice them until they were right next to him.

“Hello Paradox.” One mare said softly to him, while the other mare was blushing a lot.

He looked at the two mares. “Hey.” He said as he kept moving the carriage, his ears suddenly went up when he saw that the gray mare that said hello to him was the one that called him a monster several years ago. “What do you want Blitz?” He asked as he looked away from her.blitz

“I was wondering how you were? I haven’t seen you for… forever.” She said sweetly.

“Like you care.” He said as he looked around for his wife. “Can’t you see I’m busy?”

Blitz looked at him pushing the carriage back and forth. “I heard you’re a father…” She looked into the carriage and gasped.

Blitz’s friend looked into the carriage too as she let out a soft ‘aww’. “They’re beautiful.”

“Wow, Paradox… they look so cute.” Blitz said. “I didn’t…”

His eye started to twitch as he tried to keep calm. “You didn’t what? Didn’t think a monster could produce something as beautiful as these two?” He snapped. “Go away Blitz… leave me, my children and my wife alone.”

Blitz looked up at him with her eyes wide. “I…” She bit her bottom lip and suddenly trotted away.

Her friend looked at him for a moment then followed her friend. “Blitz… Wait up.”

Silver came up after she heard him raise his voice. “Doxy, what is wrong?” She looked in the carriage and saw the foals still sleeping. “What happened?”

He smiled at Silver. “Nothing to make you worry my love, just getting rid of a pest.” He kissed her softly on the lips. “If I hadn’t told you yet… You’re beautiful.”

Sliver blushed. “Aww, you told me that this morning.”

“I’m telling you again.” He grinned. “Did you find us some fresh vegetables?”

She nodded. “Yes and I found some leeks. I want to make some soup with them. Very fresh leeks too.”

He looked at her. “What are leeks?”

“Big mild tasting onions.” She said cheerfully.

He blinked. “Oh, alright then. So a soup made with leeks, sounds adventurous.” He grinned. “Let’s go to Sugar Cube Corner. Pinkie Pie has been wanting to see Selene and Solana.”

They walked to Sugar Cube Corner.

Sprinkle Icing was placing cakes in the display cases while Pound Cake watched her from the table. “Sprinkle, you’re putting them in there wrong.” He said.

“Don’t tell me how to do this Pound, I know what I am doing. Have you finished studying for flight academy?” Sprinkle asked as she looked at him.

Pound Cake looked at her guiltily. “Oh… I knew I forgotten to do something today…” He suddenly flew into the back room.

Silver Dash walked into the store and Sprinkle looked up and smiled. “Silver!”

“Hey Sprinkle.” Silver said as she opened the door for Paradox and the carriage.

“OH! You brought the foals!” Sprinkle giggled.

“Did some pony say foals?” Pinkie Pie peeked into the room from the kitchen. She saw Paradox and Silver and she bounced into the room. “Let me see!”

Silver was blushing as she pushed the carriage over for Pinkie to look in.

Pinkie looked in and she seemed to about to suddenly burst from emotions welling up.

Sprinkle saw her mother turning a deeper pink. “Mom… breathe.”

Pinkie let out a small squeal as she looked at the foals. It didn’t bother the foals but Paradox started to shake his head and rub his ears. “Oh a supersonic squeal.”

“They are so adorable!” Pinkie Pie said. “Can I hold one? Please…”

“Of course Pinkie.” Paradox picked up Selene held her for a moment, kissed her then handed her to Pinkie. “This one is Selene.”

Pinkie looked at the little bundle. “Oh, she’s so cute. I wish I could have a grandbaby.” She glanced up at Sprinkle.

Sprinkle Icing blinked at her mother. “Mom…”

The cake was small and decorated beautifully. Pinkie Pie looked at it proudly. “Sprinkle, you’ve out done yourself!”pinkiecake

“Silver Dash requested it for her mother.” Sprinkle said proudly.

“The colors really match her personality.” Pinkie inspected it. “Rainbows all over and… a couple pacifiers on the top. Wait…” You could literally see the wheels in Pinkie’s brain working. “Does this mean?”

She watched her mom and waited for her to say it. “Hmm?”

“Paradox and Silver are expecting?”

“Yes.” Sprinkle nodded.

She let out a squeal of happiness. “Two? Twins? Please be twins… please.” Pinkie giggled.

“They don’t know yet…” She said to her mom. “I just thought two pacifiers looked good.”

The door of Sugar Cube Corner gave a small chime. “I’m coming.” Pinkie said and walked out.

Paradox was standing and waiting. Pinkie grinned at him. “Para… dox…”

He grinned at her she noticed that he looked little different but didn’t care. “Pinkie… Pie.” He replied back.

“Gonna tell your Auntie Pinkie something?” She said with a huge grin.

He casually looked around. “Hmm, no I don’t think so.”

She bounced over to him. “Dox, tell me… please!”

He watched Pinkie Pie bounce. “Pinkie, I’ve always wondered something…”

She stopped mid bounce. “Ask me anything! What is it?”

“You’re random and almost chaotic.” He paused for a moment and looked at her. “How come you and dad never hooked up?”

Pinkie fell on the ground and looked at Paradox. “Wow! You surprised me with that question. Very out of left field there Dox.”

He nodded. “I’m curious is all… You don’t have to tell me.”

Pinkie Pie stood up slowly and looked at him. “You are trying to distract me… I know your ploy!” She grinned again. “You are not going to distract me! Tell me if it’s true… Are you and Silver expecting?”

Paradox looked at her for a long moment. “Expecting what?”

Sprinkle Icing came out of the back carrying a cake box, she placed it on the counter. “Paradox, she already knows, just tell her.”

“Yes, Pinkie. Silver and I are expecting a little one.”

“Just… one?” Pinkie asked.

“I guess so, I don’t know.” He muttered as he walked over to the counter. “How much do I owe for the cake?”

“You should bring Silver over for lunch some time. I want to see her.” Pinkie giggled as she operated the register and told him the total.

“Alright Pinkie, but today we’re having lunch with Rainbow Dash.” He placed bits on the counter paying her. He picked the box up. “See you ladies later.” He then disappeared.

“Paradox looked so…” Sprinkle started to say and was interrupted by her mother.

“Sexy.” Pinkie finished.

Sprinkle blushed. “Mom!”

Pinkie Pie looked at her daughter. “What?”

“You’re old enough to be his mother!” Sprinkle made a face.

“Duh!” Pinkie said. “Doesn’t mean I can’t look.” She hopped out of the room and back into the kitchen. Sprinkle shook her head and realized she was still blushing… because what her mother said was true, he was sexy.

Paradox was holding Silver as they appeared just outside the ballroom. The guards looked at them and then they saluted them. “Lord Paradox, Lieutenant Silver Dash.”

Silver started to giggle as Paradox set her down. “At ease, geez guys this is my wedding day, relax a little bit.”

“We cannot sir, you and Paradox’s safety is paramount to anything else.” One guard said.

“You have permission to go eat cake.” Silver smiled.

Paradox was snickering. “They called you sir.”

She shook her head. “They’re not used to me yet. Next one calls me sir I’ll box their ears. She looked at the one that called her a sir.”

The one that called Silver “sir” gulped. “Sorry ma’am.”

“Is any pony going to announce us or?” Paradox asked.

The other guard’s eyes widened. “Oh yes!” He opened the door and went in.

Paradox looked at Silver and smiled. He was already starting to get excited again and bit his lower lip.

“Mr. and Mrs. Paradox.” A pony announced inside.

Silver started to walk in, but Paradox picked her up and carried her in. “I love to carry you.”

The ballroom was full of cheers and congratulations as they both went to the table. Paradox put her on the floor and pulled the chair out for her. She graciously sat down and smiled as he sat next to her.

“Oh my! I thought you’d forgotten to come here and ditched us!” Sprinkle fretted over Silver.

“I wanted to.” Paradox said. “Silver wouldn’t let me.”

Sprinkle gasped. “Ah, Dox! That would’ve been terribly mean.”

He grinned. “Yeah. I know.” He was fidgeting in his seat and leaned over to Silver and whispered in her ear.

Silver’s eyes widened as her face turned red. “Doxy…”

He grinned as he got the reaction he wanted. “Heh.”

Fluttershy walked over. “Paradox.”

He sat up and smiled. “Hi mom.”

“What took you and Silver so long to get here? The castle isn’t that big.” She asked as she held Snafu.

“I know, but just following some advice dad gave me.” He replied.

Fluttershy frowned. “Oh, well I’ll have to give him a stern talking to.”

Paradox reached out. “Let me hold my brother.”

She smiled as she passed Snafu over to Paradox. “He’s wide awake now, but being quiet.”

“Hey bro. Sup?” Paradox said as he held his brother. He didn’t notice Silver looking at him as he held the foal.

“Doxy, you’d make a good daddy.” Silver blushed.

Paradox looked up. “Um… nope. Just a good older brother.” He gave his brother a kiss and held him up to show him to Silver. “That is your sister in law. She’s my wife. She’s super sexy hot.”

The foal giggled and blinked at Silver. Silver smiled as she reached out and took Snafu from Paradox. “Hey little brother.” She gave him a little kiss on the muzzle. She then handed the foal back to Fluttershy. “Back to mommy.”

Fluttershy smiled to herself as she took Snafu back. She wanted to put the thought in one of their heads to having a baby. Discord appeared next to her. “What are you doing?”

She giggled at him. “Nothing.”

Discord shook his head. “Fluttershy, we already have grandchildren…”

“I know but…” She whispered.

Discord sighed at his wife. “Run along.” He patted her flank she giggled as she carried Snafu back to her seat.

Discord sighed as he watched her. “We have enough grandchildren…” He muttered then looked at Paradox and Silver. “Right?”

Paradox was nodding fast. Silver just looked at her father in law with big eyes. “I… um… guess so?”

Discord nodded as he walked away. Paradox looked at Silver. “Are you alright?”aftre

“Of course. Today is my day. I got to marry you and that makes me the happiest mare in the world. You’re my dream come true.” She was tearing up as she said it.

He watched as his bride was crying he didn’t know what to do. “Silver, um… don’t cry. D-Did I do something wrong?”

She wiped her tears. “No, I’m just so happy!” She started to bawl and every pony stopped and looked at them.

Rainbow Dash flew over to the table faster than any pony else. “Paradox! What did you do to Silver?”

Paradox put his paws up. “I didn’t do it! Don’t make me fly laps.” He gasped.

“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.”

Paradox stood and switched from one hoof to the other. He leaned on the cane his father gave him as he watched his friend Crispin walk down the aisle with Sprinkle Icing then took the spot next to Paradox.

“She looks beautiful.” Crispin whispered to Paradox.

“Hrrgah.” Was all Paradox could say as he swallowed hard.

The other two joined them up on the dais. Paradox was starting to shake like a leaf.

“It’ll be alright.” Zero whispered to him. “Breathe.”

The music changed and Paradox stood up straight. Every pony stood up and turned to look at the doors.

119.

“Omygosh! Omygosh! Omygosh!” Silver started to say in quick succession. “I’m freaking out.”

“Calm down.” Mac said. “Remember yer not alone.”

She took in a deep breath. “Okay, I can do this.”

Mac opened the doors and they both started down the aisle.

120.

“Gorgeous…” Paradox sighed as he stared at her. His legs felt weak and he swore his heart just skipped several beats.

In the front row a pony had started to sob and cry.

121.

Silver heard ponies gasp at her beauty, some were mumbling about Big Mac and she smiled. Her dad was always popular with the mares but they never knew why he stayed a bachelor. Silver now knew why and she was okay with it. She looked up at the dais and saw Luna standing and waiting. She glanced at her friends Lilly, Sprinkle and Scarlet Grace and smiled. She then looked at Paradox and blushed despite herself. He looked so handsome and so nervous.

Silver Dash swallowed hard as she looked at Big Mac, her father. She remembered always visiting Sweet Apple Acres with her mother and playing with Crispin and being watched by Apple Bloom. She had been held a few times by Big Mac and she remembered him giving her a kiss or two on her forehead. She remembered that he’d smile at her whenever she accomplished something. “Hello um, Dad.” She whispered to him.Silversdad

“Silver.” He didn’t really know what to say to his daughter, he never really held any long conversations with any pony except for Rainbow Dash when they were alone. He felt nervous and he looked down at his hooves. “I’m sorry.”

Silver smiled. “Why are you sorry? Mom told me everything, it was ultimately her decision, not yours.”

“I wanted ta marry yer Ma, I asked her many times. She kept turning me down saying she didn’t need a stallion in her life.” He blurted out. “I love yer ma, but she don’t really love me back. I love ya too. Look at ya on yer wedding day. Beautiful and happy. I got to hold ya, after ya was born. Ya looked so small and helpless and I didn’t want to let ya go.” His eyes teared up. “I love ya Silver. I’m happy ta walk ya down the aisle and show every pony that I’m yer pa, and proud of ya.”

“I’m proud to call you my Dad.” She kissed Mac on his cheek. “I love you Dad.”

“We can do this.” He said as he moved up beside her. “Are ya ready ta be married to the pony of yer dreams?”

“He’s a draconequus Dad.”

Big Mac nodded. “Eeyup, I guess he is then.” His ears perked up when the music started in the throne room. “So Silver are ya ready?”

She started to breathe heavy. “Yes, I can… do this. I can. Oh! I can’t! I’m scared.” She suddenly hugged Big Mac tightly.

Mac blinked and rubbed her back. “It’s alright Silver ya don’t have ta. It’s up to ya’ll.”

She moved away from him and blinked. “Are you kidding? I love Doxy, I can get married.” She righted herself and swallowed hard. “Ready Dad?”

Big Mac sighed. “Eeyup.”

The bride’s maid Sprinkle Icing and the best stallion Crispin walked up and looked at Big Mac and Silver before entering the throne room. “Ya look gorgeous.” Crispin said. “Wow.”

She smiled shyly. “Thank you.”

LillyRose and Zero walked up next. “You look beautiful.” Lilly complimented. Zero nodded.

Scarlet Grace and her husband came up. “Whoa, hot.” Flight Strike said and got nudged by Scarlet Grace. “You look great.” He grinned.

“Beautiful as always Silver.” Scarlet Grace said. “So happy you’re going to be part of the family.”

They all entered the throne room. Silver and Big Mac waited for their cue.

Fluttershy had her grandchildren in a baby carriage. She looked in on them and smiled. She then adjusted the baby sling on her chest with her own infant. All were sleeping. Trouble was the most difficult to get to sleep being that he was the oldest of the three. Silver Dash wanted LillyRose and Grace to be her bride matrons. Paradox wanted Zero and Flight Strike as his ushers. So Fluttershy volunteered to watch the foals.runetroubleTwilight trotted over to Fluttershy. “Do you need any help?” she whispered.

“No, right now I’m fine. They are all asleep I’m hoping they stay asleep until after the ceremony.” she whispered back. “The place looks very beautiful. I’d have my birds sing for the wedding but I have my hooves full. Plus I don’t think Paradox likes birds singing.”

Twilight laughed lightly. “Anything you do for your son, he’d love.”

“Thank you Twilight.” Fluttershy whispered as she rolled the stroller back and forth.

“I’ll send over Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo to help you with the foals.” Twilight stated.

“Oh, you don’t have to do that.” Fluttershy blushed.

“Fluttershy, your son is getting married, I think you need to do more than foal sit.” She whispered.

114.

The organ started to play rather spooky music every pony looked over to see Discord playing it dressed in a long cape and wearing a half mask. He stopped playing for a moment and hissed. “Don’t look at me! I’m hideous!” He then started to laugh as he disappeared letting the original organ player take a seat and start playing more appropriate music for the wedding.

Discord appeared in front of Fluttershy. “Hey sweetness? Looks like you have your hooves full of cute foals. Let me hold ours for you.”

She gave him the foal from the sling. “He’s asleep.” She whispered.

Discord smiled at the foal as he cradled him. “Little Snafu. Are you gonna behave while your big brother gets married?”

“Don’t wake him up.” Fluttershy warned him as she looked in on Trouble and Rune Eclipse. Rune Eclipse was snuggled up against her cousin Trouble.

Scootaloo, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle walked up to them. “Twilight sent us over here to help ya.” Apple Bloom said.

“Hmm. Hello.” Discord said to the three mares. “Yes, my wife would like to have a little help with foal sitting.”

“We all helped AJ raise Crispin.” Apple Bloom announced, “And Scootaloo did foal sitting for Rainbow Dash a couple times.”

Sweetie Belle shuffled her hooves. “I helped them. I’m good at singing lullabies to foals.”

Fluttershy smiled. “Hopefully you wouldn’t have to do much. Trouble and Rune are sleeping and Discord is holding Snafu. I am just hoping they rest until after the ceremony.”

Twilight Sparkle was looking at the main ballroom, it was decorated immaculately. She glanced over and saw Princess Luna in her ceremonial dress and she was telling the guards where to stand.

Twilight rearranged the chairs again. Making sure they were organized precisely where they should be. She saw the doors open and Pinkie Pie bounced in, followed by Apple Jack and Rarity. Twilight waved them over to her.

“Darling this place looks absolutely divine.” Rarity beamed.

Apple Jack was last to join them because she was talking to Apple Bloom and Big Mac and telling them where she was going to be sitting. She walked to Twilight and her other friends. “Crispin being part of the ceremony makes me feel so proud.” She said.

“About as exciting as Sprinkle Icing being the maid of honor.” Pinkie giggled. “It’s almost as if she’s the one getting married.”

“Actually, AJ, I’m glad that your brother is here.” Twilight spoke up.

Apple Jack blinked. “Huh? Why’s that?”

“He needs to be a part of the ceremony.” Twilight stated. “Go get him we have a tuxedo to put him in.”

“Yer gonna have to explain this to me later Twi.” AJ muttered as she went over to her brother.

Big Mac looked at his sister after she talked to him. He shook his head, but Apple Bloom nudged him. He sighed and approached Twilight and the others. “Ya want me?”bigmacintosh

Twilight nodded. “Yes.” She waved to a guard. The guard approached. “Take Big Macintosh to the changing rooms. Follow the guard Mac. We need you to give the bride away. Rainbow Dash is way too emotional to do it.”

“Um, yeah but why me?” He asked.

“Silver Dash is requested you.” Twilight stated. “That is all I know.”

He gulped as he followed the guard.

Silver Dash paced back and forth nervously; her beautiful white dress made a soft shuffling noise as she did so. Her maid of honor; Sprinkle Icing watched her with concern. “Silver, it’ll be alright… what can go wrong?”

“I know. I know, but this is a big thing. I’m marrying Paradox. What will our future be like?” She stopped pacing and looked in her mirror. “Oh, my veil is crooked, this is going to be a disaster.”

Sprinkle Icing grinned as she fixed Silver’s veil. “It’s alright, you’re just nervous.”

“How’s everything going in here?” Rainbow Dash asked as she walked into the room, she spotted her daughter and started to cry. “Oh! My little girl… she’s so grown up.”

“Mom you’re going to make me start crying.” Silver sniffled at seeing her mom.

“This wedding is perfect… everything will be alright.” Sprinkle Icing continued. “Who’ll give the bride away again?” She asked as she placed a new bobby pin in Silver’s mane.

Rainbow Dash had paused. “I was, but I’m going to start bawling if I do it.” As she said that, her eyes welled up with tears.

“Too bad you don’t know your father; that would have been his job.” Sprinkle Icing muttered as she grabbed a tissue for Rainbow Dash.

Rainbow Dash sniffled and looked at her daughter with her eyes wide and innocent. “I wouldn’t say that she doesn’t know her father… I know who he is.”

Silver looked at her mom in surprise. “You know who dad is? How come you never told me? How come he doesn’t want to know me?”wedsilvrwhat“He knows you, he loves you a lot. I never told you because I wanted to raise you on my own.” Rainbow looked on the ground. “I’m sorry.”

“Mom, why would you keep that a secret from me?”

“You never asked.” she answered.

Silver blinked. “I’m asking now. Who is he?”

The kitchen of Sugar Cube Corner Sprinkle Icing came bouncing into the room. “Mom! Mmmoooommmmmm!!!!!!!”

Pinkie blinked at her daughter as she placed a cake on the counter to cool. “Sprinkle!? What!? What is it? Did Timmy fall down the well? What is it girl? Speak!”

Sprinkle Icing stopped and looked at her mother curiously. “What?”

Pinkie started to giggle and snorted. “Nothing. Tell me what is going on.”

“Guess what? You will never guess in a thousand trillion years!” Sprinkle gasped out loudly.

“Silver Dash asked you to be her maid of honor in her wedding.” Pinkie Pie guessed.

“No! Umm… Yes… Mom… How did you know that?” Sprinkle still didn’t know how her mother had the strange ability to predict and guess things accurately.

“Pinkie sense. I told you that a million times. Sheesh Sprinkle, you’d think you would’ve learned by now.” Pinkie Pie started to mix up some icing. “When is the wedding?”

Sprinkle sat down and put her chin on the counter as she watched her mother mix the icing up. “Why don’t you guess that too?”

Pinkie Pie stared at her daughter. “I’m not a psychic.”

Her daughter groaned and sank down to the floor. “Oh sometimes I wonder if I was adopted.”

“Don’t be silly.” Pinkie said. “Just because your dad decided that he wanted to go back north to seek out some new type of crystal and leave me here to raise you by myself… doesn’t mean you’re adopted.” She walked over to her daughter and sat down next to her. “I am happy you get to be part of the wedding. That means I get to help with the reception and make the wedding cake!”

Sprinkle smiled at her mother. “You can see the bright side of everything.”

Pinkie nodded and gave her daughter a hug. “Smiling helps. Is Crispin going to be in the wedding too?”

Sprinkle Icing leaned against her mom. “I’m not sure yet. Paradox hasn’t asked any pony to be his best pony. I hope it is Crispin.”

“Sprinkle… why didn’t you tell me that you liked him? I’m good at keeping secrets.” Pinkie Pie smiled.

Sprinkle smiled and looked away. “I only thought he liked me because I made cookies.”

Pinkie looked at her. “You are more than cookies to that stallion.” She beeped her on the muzzle. “Now come on Sprinkle, help me put icing on the cake. Then we’ll talk about the wedding and what sort of party we can throw for the bride.”
