Paradox looked out the window and gave a deep sigh. Silver looked up from where she was teaching the girls how read basic words. “What is wrong Doxy?”
He glanced at her. “I think I’m going to have to try out for the new Broadneigh play, ‘The Postpony Always Rings Twice’.”
She blinked. “Are you sure? What is the story about?”
“The plot is about a pony falling in love with another, but she’s already married and kills off her husband and make it look like an accident. I’m going to try out for the role of the husband. I’ve practiced many death scenarios.”
“Oh? You don’t want to be the one that kills the husband?” She held up a card that said bird on it to Solana.
Solana blinked. “bir!”
He smiled at Solana as he answered Silver. “I’m not into the roles where I have to be the bad guy.” He grinned as he went and sat next to Silver to grab another card to hold up for Selene.
“Oh, you don’t want your father’s reputation?” Silver asked. He held up a card but didn’t see what it was. “Dad can be an evil tyrant if he wanted to be. He’s got it in him. I don’t believe I can do that. After that incident; I really don’t want to talk about dad…”“Dra-gon!” Selene squeaked.
“Unca Spike!” Solana squeaked as she started to giggle.
Both Silver and Paradox looked at the girls and then looked at the card Paradox was holding. It was a picture of Spike. “How’d that get in there?” Silver asked.
He shook his head. “I have no idea. That reminds me. I have to ask Rarity to design some dresses for the girls. Mom wants to have lunch with us soon and I want the girls to look good.”
“We’ll go tomorrow morning. I have to go to the market.” Silver held another card up of a cat.
“Mew!” Selene said.
“Mew!” Solana giggled. Then they both started meowing and making cat noises. Solana pounced on Selene as they purred and mewed at one another.
“Now they’re totally distracted.” Silver sighed as she put the cards up. “I think they believe you’re an excuse to start playing.”
He chuckled. “No, they just get bored.” He put his arm around Silver and hugged her. “I love you.”
She smiled at him. “Oh, I love you too Doxy.”
