Story: Paradox’s Despair – Chapter 88


A few odd hours later:

Twilight entered the throne room and she looked at Discord. “Celestia drank the potion. Now Discord, tell me the secret to getting you out of my head?”

He sat up and gave Twilight a box. “In that box is your key to getting your mind off of me.”

She looked at the box. “What is in the box?”

He shrugged then smiled. “I don’t know, but don’t open it here!” He put his paw up before she lifted the lid of the box.

She looked at him warily and looked at the box suspiciously. “You’re just trying to make fun of me. I won’t take this.” She put the box down.

“Have it your way then.” He shrugged. “How’s Celestia by the way?”

“She fell asleep as soon as she drank the potion. Did I give it to her correctly?” She asked as she stared at the box.

“Twilight, that potion is a zebra remedy, I guess it was a good thing I had given Zecora green turbulent water from beyond the Crystal Mountains. That water is very rare. I really don’t know how well that potion will work.”

Twilight looked worried, “What if Celestia never wakes up?”

“That isn’t my problem.” He muttered. “But, I think she’ll wake up.”

Twilight looked at him for a long moment without saying anything.

He started to get itchy under her stare. He looked at her. “What?”

“I don’t know.” She said suddenly. She did know; she was just thinking about the last dream she had and she suddenly swallowed hard as she walked away. “I’m going to check on Celestia.” She trotted quickly from the room.

Discord rubbed his muzzle. “What else can go wrong?”

A guard walked into the throne room and was about to say something when he saw the glaring look on Discord’s face. “This better be good news.” He growled.

The guard took his helmet off. “It’s me.” Zero answered. “I just wanted to tell you that Lilly needed to talk to you about the baby shower for Fluttershy.”

He smiled. “Yes, thank you Zero.” He went over to his son in law. “Did I ever tell you that you’re my second favorite son in law?”

“Um, no but you only have two son in laws.” Zero muttered.

“Right.” Discord said. “Flight is my first favorite. Come on, we’ll go and see what Lilly needs. Just let me put this here for a moment.” Discord picked up a box off the floor and placed it on a table. “She’ll be back for this.”

“Who’ll be back for that? What’s in the box?” Zero asked.

“Don’t worry about it Zero, my boy. Let’s go.” He led his son in law out the throne room and down the hall.
