Story: Life with Paradox – Chapter 60

“Doxy, please relax.” Silver said to him as he paced back and forth in the living room.

“I am mad that Dad decided to teach the girls after I told him I didn’t want him to teach them anything.” He put his paws up.

“They just learned to fly Dox, it’s not like they know chaotic magic.” Silver said calmly as she walked into the kitchen.

“Silver!” Paradox went after her.

“Yes?” She asked as she started to take plates from the cupboard.

“What if he’s teaching them chaotic magic without my knowledge? I don’t want them to learn it. I never got the hang of it and I know it’s the reason that LillyRose is missing.” Paradox helped her by taking utensils out of the drawer.

“Are you really sure that is the reason?” Silver asked as she opened the oven and looked at the dinner that was cooking. It was vegetarian lasagna. “I think another ten minutes.” She said as she closed the oven.

Paradox sniffed the dinner and smacked his lips. “That smells so good.” He shook his head. “I am not sure… but I know it has to be a factor.”

“It’s not ready yet.” She said softly. “Maybe you should talk to your father about the girls again.”

“I have already told him not to teach them chaotic magic.”

“Ah, but you didn’t tell him not to teach them to fly.” She replied.Iseeu

He closed his eyes and let out a deep sigh. “Silver, you are too smart for your own good. You discovered the loophole and Dad has a clever way of finding loopholes and taking every advantage of it.” He kissed Silver on her cheek as he placed the utensils next to the plates she had put on the table.

“He is your father. You should talk to him Dox. You can’t stay mad at him forever; he has every right to be around the girls as your mother does.” Silver said as she bumped her hip against him.

Paradox nodded. “You’re right as always.” He shook his head. “There is a reason why I keep you around.”

“I thought it was because of the sex.” Silver smiled.

“That my love; is known as a perk.” He gave her a smirk and winked at her.

Silver went to the oven as she shook her head she pulled the lasagna out and set it on top to cool off. “Get the girls; dinner is ready.”

He saluted her. “Yes, Lieutenant Silver Dash.”

“Mother was right…” She muttered.

“Oh?” He paused before going out the door.

“You’re a smart aleck.”

He laughed as he went to get the twins.

Silver cried softly as she sat on the couch. Paradox wasn’t home and the twins were playing with the blocks.

Selene looked up at her mom and tilted her head. “Mama?” She asked.

Silver moved her hoof up and wiped her tears then smiled at her foal. “Yes Selene?”

Selene crawled over to her. “You ok?”

“I’m alright dearest. What’re you and your sister building?” She got up and walked over to the blocks and sat down.

Solana looked at her. “A bridge.”

Selene grabbed a block. “A castle.”

“A bridge and a castle, oh? Who lives in the castle?” Silver asked as she sniffled.

Both girls smiled. “We do. We’re princesses.” They replied in unison.

Silver laughed. “That is wonderful. If you two are princesses… what does that make daddy and I?”

Selene looked at the blocks. “You’d be a queen.”

Solana giggled. “Daddy be a jester… and a king.”

Silver laughed again. “So daddy is working two jobs?”

They both nodded.

“I’m just a queen? Do I do anything else?” She asked as she looked at the ‘castle’ the girls built.

“You tell every pony what to do.” Selene replied.

“You also take care of our brother.” Solana whispered. “He becomes the prince, but not for a long time. A very long time.”

Silver got up quickly. “I’ll be back… Don’t get into anything.” She stifled a sob as she went into the other room.

Selene looked at her sibling. “Mama cry.”

“I sorry.” Solana muttered as she started to tear up.

Selene sniffled and looked down as tears started to flood her eyes.

They both were suddenly crying as they both said “Mama!” in unison as they cried.

Silver came back her eyes red from crying and both of the twins were crying holding their paws out to her. She went over to them and they both crawled up to her and settled up against her hugging and snuggling her.

“We love you.” Selene and Solana said. “No sad. Please.”

Silver held them close pulling them near her as she settled down putting her hoof around them protectively. “My little ones. Mama is sorry she made you cry. She just feels sad.”

Selene and Solana both nuzzled her. “Sorry.”

Silver nuzzled them as they snuggled her. “Don’t be sorry. I love you.” All three of them fell asleep on the floor. Silver covered them protectively under her wing as she held them close with her hooves.

Paradox came home and stopped short when he glanced in the living room to see his three girls asleep on the floor. He smiled as he got on all fours went over to them and curled up around them. He gave Silver a small kiss and her eyes fluttered open.slepyfam1

“Doxy?” She whispered.

“You three are beautiful.” He whispered back to her. “Why are you on the floor?”

Silver looked at him without a word and he saw her eyes start to well up with tears.

He looked at her in concern. “Why are you crying?”

“Oh Doxy…” Silver sobbed softly. “I’m sorry.”

He felt hair on the back of his neck stand up. “For?”

“I was going to surprise you and tell you but…” she cried softly.

“Tell me what? Silver?” He asked with concern.

“I was pregnant again.” She whispered. “But… I lost the baby.” Tears ran down her cheeks slowly.

He sat up slowly. “Silver. Are you alright?” He asked as he looked at her. “Was it anything I did?”

She shook her head. “I’m alright. I have an appointment with the doctor tomorrow. It wasn’t anything you did.” She moved her hooves around the foals tighter. “I think it was going to be a boy. I hope you’re not mad.”

He kissed her gently on her cheeks. “Why would I be mad? I love you.”

“I wanted to make you happy. I… wanted to surprise you… I’m so sorry.” She sighed and cried softly.

He curled up more around her and the girls as he nuzzled her mane. “I love you. Don’t be sorry, things happen for a reason. You told me that once.” He said softly.

Silver nodded. “I know, but I wanted another foal. I…” She paused as he kissed and nibbled her neck. “Doxy, I’m holding the twins.”

He nodded. “I know, can’t a draconequus kiss and snuggle his wife without her thinking about sex?” He asked as he snickered.

She gave a small giggle. “Hey, I’m addicted to you.”

“As I am of you.” He whispered. “Let’s get some dinner ready.” He slowly sat up and gave her a final kiss. “After dinner and the girls are asleep, we’ll work on a new addition to the family.”

She blushed as she got up, waking the twins who looked up sleepily at her. “Come on little ones, mama has to make dinner.”

Selene and Solana both stretched as they yawned. They both noticed their father at the same time, he was met by their smiles. “Dada!” They said in unison.

Paradox smiled as he hugged them. “Hello my beautiful girls. I love being surrounded by beautiful girls.” He pulled Silver into the hug. Silver blushed and hugged him back as the twins giggled.

Silver looked at the trophy for second place Paradox got for racing her mother. He had placed it on a shelf with his thank you plaque for helping with putting up decorations in the town hall and a statue for most memorable performance in a Broadneigh play. She looked over at him as he leaned back on the couch and held Selene and Solana. Selene was placing her paws on his muzzle as he was making faces at her. Solana was napping on his chest.

“Do you ever feel like you were cheated out of a cutie mark?” Silver asked him suddenly.

He looked at her. “What?”

“You never got a cutie mark. Why?”

Paradox blinked. “I never dwelled on it.” He said. “I figure it’s because dad doesn’t have one and I’m a draconequus. Why do you ask?”

“No pony ever teased you or your sisters?” She asked.

He started to laugh. “Anyone teased Grace she’d predict their demise… and…” He paused as he slowly placed Selene on the couch as he sat up. “Why does Lilly seem to slip my mind?” He shook his head. “I guess it wasn’t that big of deal for us.”

“Do you think our little girls will get cutie marks?” She said as she walked over to him.

He looked at Solana napping on his lap and at Selene who was playing with strands of his tail running her paws along his hair and smiling. “The only thing not pony about them are their paws. They might get cutie marks or not… I’m not sure. What are you afraid of?”

“I’m afraid they’ll be teased about it.” She whispered.

He looked at her. “Silver, I don’t believe they’ll be teased, I’m sure they’ll get along with most of the ponies here in Ponyville.”

“I just want them to be happy. I don’t think they should worry about getting a cutie mark. If they don’t have to.” She looked at Selene.

“When they are older we’ll explain it to them if they ask. It’s all we can do.” He placed his paw down next to Selene and started to move his fingers fast along the couch to make her pounce on him. She pounced and dug her claws into him. “Ouch…” He whimpered. Selene giggled. Seleneattacks

Silver laughed. “Serves you right. Teasing her.”

“I wasn’t teasing her, I was playing with her… Her claws are sharp.” Selene made a loud growling noise as she gripped his paw with her front claws and bit his thumb. “Hey!” Paradox yelped as he tried to extract his paw from her grip. She growled more and bit his other paw. He looked pitifully at Silver. “Help?”

Silver laughed and put her hooves up. “Sorry, this is between you and your daughter.”

The crowd of ponies cheered as the fliers lined up. Paradox looked over at his mother-in-law as he stretched at the starting line. Rainbow Dash looked back at him. “Just because you’re my daughter’s husband doesn’t mean I’ll go easy on you.”

“You’re also a grandmother to twins.” He answered and she gave him a stern stare. He gave her a smug grin in return.

Other fliers looked at them, at each other and shrugged. A couple were gryphons, one was a young dragon and three more ponies. Celestia stepped out and waved to the crowd the cheering from the crowd increased and quickly quieted down when Celestia raised her hoof.

“Thank you. I am happy so many of you came out today to watch this race. This race is for various charities here, across Equestria and surrounding kingdoms. To help all that need help. I hope for a fair and fun race. We have the fastest fliers in Equestria and surrounding kingdoms.” The fliers all waved and bowed. Paradox just waved at Silver, she waved back at him and her mother as she stood next to the baby carriage. “Now fliers, on your mark!” Paradox stood at his place same with Rainbow Dash and the others. “Get set!” They all crouched down eyes focused ahead. “Go!” Celestia shouted.

The fliers took off like a shot and Paradox as well as Rainbow Dash flew ahead of them easily. “I imagine you are tired already.” Rainbow Dash asked him as she flew around him.

Paradox looked at her. “I’m not tired at all. You sound winded… are you feeling your age?” He asked her as they flew through the first mile marker cloud together.

“Not even close to feeling winded.” She retorted as she flapped her wings and passed him.

Paradox let her fly ahead and set his pace he didn’t want to lose steam as the race went. He let the gryphons pass him by but didn’t allow the dragon or the other ponies get ahead of him.

Silver watched her mother at the head of the race and looked for Paradox. She saw him and let out a sigh at where he was in the race.

The announcer pony was giving all the details over the PA system. “Paradox the draconequus is letting his competition pass him by. Our own Rainbow Dash is ahead of the pack. Wait. Here comes the gryphon Havok; he’s catching up to Rainbow Dash.”

Rainbow looked behind her and saw the gryphon flying up behind her. “I don’t think so.” She whispered as she pumped her wings. She smiled satisfied when the gryphon was left far behind her.

“We are getting closer to the last lap and there is some movement.” The announcer continued. “What is this? Paradox is making a move!”

Silver gasped as she watched as Paradox casually flew around the gryphons as if they weren’t moving. “Come on Doxy. You can do it.” She whispered.

Paradox pumped his wings as he passed the gryphons they looked at him and frowned. “I’m just flying like I usually do.” He said to them.

He flew up behind his mother-in-law without a word and effortlessly flapped his wings as he caught up to her. “Hey. You’d think I’d disappoint my wife if I didn’t at least come in second to you?”racing

Rainbow Dash looked at him. “Dox, you know I adore you but no way am I going to let you come in first.”

“I guess we’ll see what happens.” He grinned as they flew side by side.

Rainbow Dash nodded as she kept pace with him.

“It’s neck and neck! Rainbow Dash and Paradox! This is so exciting!” The announcer shouted over the cheers of the gathered ponies.

Silver watched as both her husband and mother went zooming past the finish line. She didn’t know who was first. She blinked. “Who won?”

“This is totally unprecedented. Both Paradox and Rainbow Dash crossed the finish line at the same time. We have to look at the photo to see who really won.” The announcer sounded shocked.

The other racers went through the line and the gryphon Havok got third place.

Paradox and Rainbow Dash flew up and landed close to Havok and the announcer as Celestia looked at the photo. Celestia looked up from the photo and smiled. “This is amazing.” She whispered and then talked to one of the race officials. Rainbow Dash sat and didn’t look winded at all. Paradox was shaking and breathing heavy as he looked around for his wife.

Silver flew up with the baby carriage and landed close to him and her mother. “Mom! Doxy!” She said.

“Hey Silver.” He smiled at his wife as she approached him.

“You’re sweaty.” Silver giggled as she hugged him. “Just like the way you get in bed.” She whispered.

He grinned as he gave her a small kiss. “Don’t be naughty… we’re in the presence of royalty and your mother.”

She nodded and hugged her mother. “You did great mom. You and Doxy both did.”

“I’ve got to admit it, Dox gave me good competition.” Rainbow Dash smiled.

“The winner of the race has been determined. By just a hair…” Princess Celestia said loudly. “Rainbow Dash came in first. Lord Paradox was second. The gryphon Havok third.”

There was cheering and Rainbow Dash jumped up and cheered for herself. “Oh! Yeah! I still got it!”

Silver and Paradox clapped for her. “Congratulations mom.” Silver replied and looked at Paradox. “Congratulations Paradox.”

He looked at her and blushed. “I tried my best. Your mother is tough.” He suddenly stumbled back when Rainbow Dash flew down and hugged him. “Whoa!”

“Way to go! You gave me great competition! Thank you Dox!” She exclaimed and stopped hugging him when she realized her daughter was looking at her smugly. “Ahem… Good job.” She cuffed his shoulder.

Paradox was laughing lightly as Silver opened the door to the room. “What’s so funny?” She asked.

“I’ll tell you after we send the nanny away.”

The room was quiet and they saw the nanny sitting in a rocking chair beside the crib holding one of the twins. She looked up and gave them a smile. She was an earth pony a little older than Silver. She spoke in a whisper. “These little ones are angels. I just got this one asleep.” She stood up and placed Selene in the crib.

Paradox nodded. “Selene is our little night owl.” He whispered and walked to the crib to look in on them.

“Thank you for watching them.” Silver replied.dewdrop

“It’s what I’m here for.” The nanny walked over to them. “Celestia had known my family for a long time. My great great grandmother once was a nanny to the castle.” She smiled. “If you two ever need some pony to watch them again. I’ll be glad to. Remember my name is Dew Drop.”

“Alright. It’ll be a pleasure to employ you again in the near future.” Silver replied.

They both said good bye to Dew and the earth pony left. Silver looked at Paradox and grinned. “So what were you laughing at?”

He grinned malevolently. “The guards in the west wing hallway… didn’t you noticed how they were all blushing?”

She blinked at him then started to giggle lightly. “Oh yeah, I forgotten that the hallway echoed. Those guards heard us.”

“Oh… yes, and one of those guards was the one that used to be my guard.” He shook his head as he grinned. “Silver, I love you. Let’s go to bed.”

She nodded as she agreed about bed. “Alright.” She looked into the crib. The twins were both snuggled against one another. “Sleeping like angels. Oh Doxy, I’m so happy with our family.”twinsleep

He hugged her to him. “I am too. I’m happy that you’re happy.” They stood watching the twins sleeping then slowly they themselves went to bed.

Couple months later.

The crowd of ponies made him nervous. Paradox stood to the side and watched as the procession went by. His wife Silver was standing next to him and he had their children in a couple baby slings. As the ponies started to disperse a stallion walked over to Silver and started to talk to her.

“Hey young mare, what brings you to Canterlot?” the stallion asked as he blatantly was hitting on her.

Paradox grabbed Silver and started to growl possessively. “She’s here with her husband and daughters.”mywife

The stallion looked at Paradox in surprise. “Oh uhh. I… didn’t notice you um…” He ran off.

Silver looked at Paradox. “I could have told him…”

He let her go. “Sorry Silver. I just get nervous when I feel threatened. You’re so beautiful and I’m… me.”

“Doxy, you know I love you. No other stallion would turn my head.” She looked at him as she faced him. “Ever since I was a little filly. I had been infatuated with you.”

“Silver… I feel as if I did wrong by ignoring you those many years ago.” He whispered.

Silver leaned against him. “Water under the bridge. Come on, we’re invited to the palace. We need to get there soon. They’ll be having dinner in a couple hours.” She spread her wings out and he did the same holding the twins against his chest tightly. They both took off flying towards the palace.

26.

A guard saluted Silver. “Lieutenant Silver, Ma’am; Princess Celestia has assigned a nanny for the evening.”

Silver looked shocked. “A nanny? Why?”

“The dinner party is going to run late, and Princess Celestia doesn’t want the twins to be up too late at night.” The guard answered.

“Selene is a night owl.” Paradox said as he looked at the twins in the ornate crib, they were sleeping soundly. “I guess they’ll be okay for one night as long as the nanny is reliable.”

“Alright, but I want to know if anything happens. Anything.” Silver said to the guard.

The guard saluted again. “Yes ma’am. I’ll send the nanny over.”

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 suspense is killing me.” Rainbow Dash got up and walked over to the waiting room entrance and jumped back when the door opened and Paradox came out.

Paradox looked at his mother-in-law. “Hey RD.”

“Well? I want to see my daughter and my grandchild!” Rainbow Dash demanded and poked Paradox in the chest.

“Alright.” He smiled as he opened the door for Silver. “Dear, the natives are restless.”

Silver walked out and smiled. “Hey Mom. What’s… eep!” Rainbow Dash hugged her daughter tightly. Silver hugged her mother for a long moment. “I’m alright mom.”

Rainbow let her go and looked at her. “Looks like you lost some weight. Remember after having a foal, you have to get back into shape. So where is my grandchild?”

Paradox already went to the observation room. “In here. The nurse should be ready.”

Discord walked past him and ruffled Paradox’s mane. “Proud of you.”

Every pony went into the room where the window was to the nursery. There were several bassinets in the nursery with several foals. Rainbow Dash flew from one side of the window to the other looking into bassinets hoping that one of them was her grandchild. “That one looks strong. Oh maybe that one there?”

Discord’s eye twitched as Rainbow Dash kept flying past him.

Fluttershy looked in the window and saw two bassinets next to one another with twins. “Oh… Oh my…”

Paradox walked in. “Did you guess which foal is ours?” He asked.

Fluttershy spoke up quietly. “Um… I think I know…”

“Ya’ll have ta’ tell us Paradox.” Big Mac said. “An’ do it quickly before Dash has an anxiety attack.”

“Or I make her wings disappear.” Discord grumbled.

Rainbow Dash looked around. “Where’s Silver?”

Paradox pointed into the nursery. “She went back in to stand near the baby.”

They all looked and saw Silver walk into the nursery. She waved and smiled at them as she walked toward the front of the nursery. She walked forward and turned around in between the two bassinets with the twins. She then looked up at them and looked down at the twin foals.

Rainbow Dash blinked and let out a sudden squeak. “Twins! That is totally awesome!”

Fluttershy blushed. “I knew it…” She sniffled as she started to tear up. “Twins.”

Discord went over to Fluttershy and rubbed her shoulders. “You guessed or did Scarlet tell you this?”

She shook her head. “No… The twins have Doxy’s eyes. Look at them.”

Discord looked and smiled. “You’re right.” He laughed. “They better give them back.”

Paradox leaned on the glass as he looked at Silver and the foals. Slowly he signed, ‘I love you’ to Silver. He then signed, ‘you’re beautiful’ to her and Silver suddenly blushed.

Apple Jack watched him do the sign language and wondered what he was doing. “What is going on?”

Paradox’s ears went up. “What? Oh um… I’m talking to Silver.”

“How do ya do that?” AJ asked.

“Well, I use my paws.” He moved his fingers. “I just told her that I loved her and I think she is beautiful.”

Discord chuckled as he approached and signed something to his son.

“Dad! Silver knows what you just signed!” Paradox blushed and looked over to Silver and she was looking at Discord with her eyes wide.

“Sorry Dox.” Discord glanced at Silver. “Nope, not sorry.” He grinned then signed something at Silver and her eyes widened more as she suddenly shook her head fast.

“Dad! Stop it.” Paradox said and pushed his father out of the observation room.

“What are their names?” Rainbow Dash asked.

Paradox was happy to answer. “Selene and Solana.”

“Oh my goodness, those are beautiful names.” Fluttershy sighed. “I cannot wait to hold them.”

“I can’t wait till I can spoil them!” RD laughed.

Silver panted as she pushed down. “Ahhh! They never told me it would hurt so much!”

“You are doing great Silver. Just breathe and push when I tell you. Remember you have two foals to push out.” Epona stated.

“Wait… What?” Paradox said as he looked at his wife and the doctor. “No pony told me this.”

Silver nodded. “Found out… before you came back in here. The doctor was checking the vitals and discovered two heart beats. We’re having twins.” She panted out.

Paradox blinked in shock. “T… t-twins?”

Epona nodded as she put her mask on and the nurse helped her get cleaned up. “Yes, twins.”

He nodded suddenly. “Alright. Awesome.” He started to shake suddenly as he gulped.

Silver’s ears went back as she let out a yell. “Ah! Doxy!” She whimpered as he went to her, placing his paw on her hoof.

“I’m here for you. Yell at me, curse me and be mean to me, but know this. I’ll always love you.” He told her as he kissed her.

Epona went over and placed her hoof on Silver’s stomach. “Alright Silver; when I tell you to push do so as hard as you can. Paradox you encourage her and make sure she breathes.” She didn’t wait for them to reply as she looked at the situation.

Paradox looked at his wife as she looked at him. She had tears in her eyes and she already looked exhausted and all he could think about is how absolutely gorgeous she was. “We can do this.” He said to her.

She looked at him, his eyes looked sunken in and tired and he smiled at her with encouragement. She loved him so much and he was beautiful to her. “Yes.” She grit her teeth as pain hit her. “We can do this.”

“Silver I want you to push.” Epona said.

Silver pushed with all her strength. “Uhggggh.”

“Good. Rest.” The doctor said. “You’re progressing well, looks like you have stubborn foals.”

Paradox rubbed Silver’s back around her shoulders. “I wish I could help you more.”

“You help me by just being here.” She whispered.

Epona suddenly looked up. “Alright, I need you to push again Silver, but try not to push too hard. I have to check something.”

Silver gulped and pushed down “Ah… ohh.”

Epona smiled as she looked up. “Yes that’s great. Now breathe and push again.”

Paradox rubbed her shoulders as he talked to her. “Breathe deep. You can do this.”

Silver looked at him and started to cry. “No… I can’t. Doxy, I’m tired so tired.”

“So am I, after this we’ll go home and snuggle in bed.” He whispered to her. “I love you. Just push and breathe deeply.”

Silver breathed and pushed she was getting tired but she did what the doctor told her. “Ah! This pain!” She felt pressure release suddenly.

“Oh, here is the first foal.” Epona smiled under her mask. She worked on cleaning its airway. “A beautiful girl.” The baby started to cry and Paradox tried to get a good look. Epona held the foal up. “Cut the cord Dox?” She asked.

He gulped as he took the scissors that the nurse offered him. “Uh… yes.” He shook as he cut the cord. “A girl.” He muttered softly.

“Silver, you have a brave, strong husband. His father would have already been on the floor.”

He felt the pounding in his ears but he knew his wife wasn’t done. He fought off the urge to black out even though he saw spots in front of his eyes. “Don’t count on it for long.” He muttered.

The foal cried loudly as the nurse took her to the warming table. “Good set of lungs.” She announced.

Epona went back to position. “Almost there… Just push and breathe like before.”

Silver nodded as she took in a deep breath then pushed. “Ah… maybe there is a better way.”

“There is, but it’s messier and a lot more painful.” Epona answered. “Come on push more.”

Paradox rubbed her shoulders. “You were able to get one, now the other. Maybe a boy?”

“Doxy…” Silver panted.

“Yes, my love?” He asked as he kissed her cheek.

“Shut it.” She growled as she pushed.

“Yes, gorgeous.” He whispered.

“Oh, another girl! Identical twins. Congratulations.” Epona held the other foal up. “Daddy you’re needed for the cutting of the umbilical cord.”

Dox swallowed as he cut the cord. “Identical t-twins… I… I-identical.” The room spun and he fell.

“Father down.” Epona yelled. “Silver. I applaud your husband’s endurance. Discord fainted faster. Nurses, get him into a bed.”

The nurse took the crying foal to the warming table to clean her up. “She’s healthy as well.” She picked both of them up, they were bundled up and brought them to Silver. “Here you go, Mommy.” She went over and helped the other nurses drag Paradox into a bed.

Silver held them and started to cry. “Oh! They’re beautiful.” She nuzzled them both. “My sweet twins. You two need names. We’ll wait for daddy to wake up.”newmommy

Epona got up and smiled. “All done. Now, you look great. The foals are healthy. I need you to abstain from sex for about a month until you’re healed properly. I’ll see you in a week to see how you are.” She smiled as she left. The nurses left as well after dragging Paradox on to a bed.

Silver held the foals and looked at them. They both had a little gold mane on their foreheads. Their coats were a very faint blue. One had freckles while the other didn’t. “That’s how we’ll tell you two apart.” The foal with freckles opened her eyes, they were deep blue like Paradox’s.

“Oh my head.” Paradox mumbled as he sat up. “What happened?”

She looked over to him. “Does Daddy Doxy want to see his daughters?” She asked.

He jumped up quickly and used his wings for balance as he stumbled to her bed. He then stopped briefly. “Wait, do they look alright?”

She smiled. “Here. Look for yourself.”

He took one of them and looked; he let out a deep breath. “She’s beautiful… she’s so beautiful.” He swallowed hard. “Oh no.”oneangel

Silver blinked. “What’s wrong?”

He smiled. “This one is a little thief.” He brought the foal back and picked up the other one to look at her. “Oh… This one is also a thief!” He stumbled a little. “Stole my heart right away. Little thieves.”

Silver started to giggle. “Are you happy?”

“Silver, I am overwhelmed. They are gorgeous just like you.” He kissed her as he gave her the other foal.

“What should we name them?” She asked as she nuzzled the foals and then kissed him on the cheek.

“I want to name one Selene.” He said softly.

“And the other one?”

He looked at her. “Silver why won’t you name the other?”

“You’re more creative. Please name them both.”

“Alright Silver, but I really think you should name her.” He thought for a moment. “Solana.”

“Selene and Solana. Those are beautiful names. Oh Doxy… We are parents!” She giggled as she started to cry again. He kissed her again and nuzzled her.
