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.
“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.
“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.
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.
