Story: Paradox’s Despair -Chapter 25

“Oh… that is rough news Zero.” A young recruitment officer mumbled to Zero when they had heard Zero had been fired. “At least you don’t have to see that viper’s face any longer.”

“She isn’t a viper.” He muttered. “Don’t any pony in here say anything bad about LillyRose; if they do, they’ll have to go against me.” Zero stated as he got up from the bunk and left the barracks, he trotted out to the training grounds and sighed as he looked up at the night sky. Silver Dash looked over at the commotion curiously, watched him leave and turned back to her friends.

Paradox was watching over Zero on his own time; he grinned as he transformed into his disguise of a gray unicorn guard. He approached Zero outside acting like he was a little drunken. “Oh… is you? What are you doing here?” he slurred his words as he fell against Zero.

Zero looked at the unicorn in irritation. “What is wrong with you?”

“Nothing… why is sum thin wrong with you?” Paradox asked as he stumbled and used Zero as a way to steady himself.

“There is…” he whispered “But I rather not talk about it.”

“Was it about Lady Chaos?” He asked as he slipped off Zero’s side and fell to the grass.

Zero nodded and trotted away from the drunken unicorn. “Please, just leave me alone.”

Paradox was going to get up when a hoof was offered to him. He looked up and saw a mare with a silver and gold mane smiling down at him. “You need help up?” She asked.silverwoarmor

His eyes widened and he swallowed hard. “I… um, I…” he slowly transformed and took her hoof in his paw. She kept smiling at him as he stood up.

“You didn’t need help up.” She giggled. “Are you Paradox?”

He nodded and still had her hoof in his paw. “Did anyone tell you that you look beautiful?”

Zero trotted towards the other side of the training field, didn’t notice anything going on around him as he approached the tree at the far end. He sat down on the bench next to the old willow tree.

She landed softly near the old willow. Her wings folded gently and silently as she looked at Zero who was sitting on the bench facing away from her.

Paradox felt stupid at what he said to the mare, but he wasn’t lying and the mare was still there smiling at him. “What is your name?”

“Silver.” she said as she looked at his beautiful blue eyes. “You don’t remember me?”

He shook his head as he just stared at her. “I am sorry I don’t, but I would love to make new memories of you.”

Lilly slowly walked to Zero as he sat on the bench; she sat opposite of him and looked at him. He had his head down and he looked a little angry.imhere

Zero was irritated. He wanted to be alone but even being alone there was always some pony else there. He wanted to tell the other pony to beat it and leave him be so he looked up with a frown on his face and a bitter retort on his lips when his eyes widened to see Lilly staring at him.

“You wanted to say something?” Lilly asked him, a smile on her face.

“My Lady.” he jumped up and bowed to her.

Lilly chuckled. “Do friends really bow to one another?”

He looked up. “I… don’t think so.” He stood up and looked at her.

She stood up also and walked to him. “You looked so sad and angry; what is wrong?”

Zero looked at his hooves. “I am angry because the other guards keep making me angry I wanted, no, I needed to get away from them. You were gone too, might be the reason why I was sad. I missed you.” He blushed. “You’re back now and I feel a little better.”

“Zero…” she whispered. “I wasn’t planning on coming back as soon as I did. I still have to leave to find my aunt Misery, but I had to return.”

“So you’re leaving again? Why did you come back? Did you forget something?” He looked at her crimson eyes.

Lilly nodded. “I forgot something very important.”

Paradox realized that he was still holding Silver’s hoof and he blushed. “I guess you’d need that.”silverdashmeet

Silver giggled at his wit and she went over to him and smiled more. “Dox, I really like you, I’ve liked you when Lilly and I would play and you’d just be there.” Her blue cheeks highlighted with a blush. “I wanted to tell you then, but you liked another filly and I…” she looked down at her hooves.

“You don’t think I look like a monster do you?” He asked suddenly.

Silver looked at him in shock. “No? Why would you ask that?”

He smiled as he went over to her and gave her a hug. “Thank you.”you'renot

Silver hugged him back; a little confused. “You’re welcome?”

Lilly leaned up against Zero and gave him a hug. “I forgot my heart here.”

Zero swallowed hard when she said that and he hugged her back. “You mean?”

“I mean that you are my heart and I need you with me.” She whispered softly as she let him go from the hug. “Unless you don’t want to be with me.”

“I… I want to be with you Lilly. I want to be a part of your life.” They kissed under the willow tree.

Paradox stepped back from the hug and blushed. “I’m sorry it’s just… I remember you… You’re Aunt Rainbow Dash’s daughter.”

“Yes. Rainbow Dash is my mom, but, I am an adult Dox, so are you…” She smiled shyly at him.

Paradox blinked as the urge rose within him and he couldn’t help himself as he pulled Silver to him; kissing her soft lips tenderly. Silver was surprised by the kiss but thoroughly melted in his arms as he rubbed his tongue up into her mouth entwining with her own tongue and they kissed deeply as her wings spread out and quivered.

Luna was walking back and forth in front of the guards. She looked at the guards one by one. Some were extremely young and she shook her head at the newness of them. She looked at one; an earth pony guard. “Ye, tell me how ye shall watch the charge, and how thou shall protect them?”
lunatroop“Ever vigilant and to the death ma’am!” The guard saluted and bowed.

Luna nodded and waved her hoof and the guard stood with the others again. Most were Pegasus and unicorn guards. “We have asked the captain of the guard to choose the most elite of the guards for this assignment. We do not know if ye have heard any rumors, but we shall enlighten thou. Discord is to be obeyed as he is now the ruler of Equestria as such a time that my sister, Princess Celestia is to return. His Daughters and his Son shall be treated right, we wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for LillyRose; Lady Chaos. As ye all know, Fluttershy shall also be here, she is married to Discord so thou shall take instructions from her as well. Is there any questions for us?”

A young Pegasus guard stepped forward. “Yes, ma’am?”

“Yes?” Luna nodded

“I… I just started this week… are you sure I am fit for this assignment?” She asked nervously as she bowed shakily.
SilverdasharmorLuna looked at her for a long moment. “Ye will be assigned Fluttershy. Ye will guard her with thou life and do what she commands thou to do.”

“Yes ma’am.” She saluted and looked relieved all at once.

Luna then assigned guards to the family members. The one she didn’t assign was a guard for Discord, since he’d be surrounded by guards no matter what and he didn’t really need a guard.

Luna pointed to the earth pony guard. “Ye are one of the bravest of the guards, we pick thou to be Lady Chaos’ personal guard. Ye shall be at her side all the time, be at her beck and call. Do whatever she requires of thou… Can ye do that?”

He had bowed to the Princess and nodded. “I shall make you proud my Princess.”
zeroguardLuna nodded at them, “We are already proud of all of thou. The family will be arriving today. We suggest ye all be prepared.” She walked off with two of her own personal guards walking behind her.

The earth pony guard blinked. “Doesn’t Lady Chaos have wings? How do I keep up with that?”

A unicorn guard laughed. “I guess you will be running a lot then. Didn’t you hear the rumor about her?”

“What rumor?” The earth pony guard asked.

“I heard that she eats the flesh of ponies.” The unicorn guard whispered. “She has sharp fangs that she will sink deeply into your flesh. Her bat wings blotted out the sun on the day that Celestia lost her throne.”

“She has sharp fangs that she will sink deeply into your flesh. Her bat wings blotted out the sun on the day that Celestia lost her throne.”
“She has sharp fangs that she will sink deeply into your flesh. Her bat wings blotted out the sun on the day that Celestia lost her throne.”

The earth pony guard looked doubtful. “Come on that is just a rumor.” He shook his head. “I fully doubt that Luna would let some pony like that take over Equestria.”

“That is what I have heard.” The unicorn guard muttered. “Good luck with her Zero. Be prepared to get a lot of exercise by running up and down hallways trying to keep up with some pony that has magic and can fly.”

“It won’t be that bad.” Zero muttered. “Will it?”

The unicorn laughed and shrugged. “Who knows; I was assigned to Lord Paradox and I heard that he is ill, should be an easy assignment.”
