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.
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.
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.”
