Story: Paradox’s Despair – Chapter 92


Lilly sat up suddenly. “Zero!”

Zero sat up; he had gotten to bed late after the long meeting he, Lilly, and Discord had about giving Fluttershy a baby shower. “What? Are you in labor? Do we need to get to the hospital?”

Lilly shook her head as she looked at her husband, her eyes wide in fright. “The shadow it… We have to tell dad!” She blinked as tears started to fall from her eyes.

Zero got out of bed and looked around the room. “How do you know this?”

“Paradox told me.” Lilly said as she got out of bed. “Come on, it’s important that Dad knows.”

“Wait… Lilly.” He said but she was already opening the door to their room.

“Zero, we cannot wait forever.” She said… She clicked her tongue and appeared beside him. She grabbed his hoof and clicked her tongue again and they both appeared just outside Discord and Fluttershy’s room. The two guards stood there and looked at them in shock when they appeared.

One guard blinked and recovered from the shock quickly. “Halt.”

“I have to talk to my Dad! It’s important.” Lilly said to the guard.

“Lord Discord said that he and Lady Fluttershy wasn’t to be disturbed.”

Zero walked up to them. “Lord Discord had appointed me captain of the night guard. Stand down. Lilly has to see her father.”

“Sir!” Both guards said together when they recognized Zero and they saluted.

Lilly went up to the door and knocked loudly upon it. “Mom! Dad!”

A few days later.

Fluttershy shook her head as she looked at the box that she kept her tea and other herbs to keep from getting pregnant and sighed at how empty it was. “I guess I’ll be alright.”

There was a knock on the door. “Come in.”

“Mom?” Paradox asked as he peeked into the room.

Fluttershy smiled. “Dox! Come in please.” She was so happy her son came to see her.

He opened the door all the way. “I hope I’m not bothering you.” He said as he walked in.paradoxsweet

“No, I’m just starting to get ready to go for a stroll outside.” She smiled lightly as she pushed the box further on the table. “Do you want to join me? Silver would love the company too.”

Paradox shuffled his feet. “That is why I’m here.” He sat down opposite Fluttershy then looked around nervously. “I want to ask her to marry me.” He whispered.

Fluttershy blinked. “Oh Doxy!” she smiled. “How are you going to ask?”

“I’m not sure, I want it to be special.” he fidgeted.

“Your father asked me on the night I was going to tell my friends that I was pregnant with you and Lilly.” She suddenly blushed. “I was so shocked I couldn’t speak. You know how he is; he made a huge production of it.” She smiled thinking back on it.

“I haven’t told Dad yet. Should I?” He looked nervous just speaking of it.

“Dox, you really shouldn’t worry, you’re very creative and I am sure you will be able to come up with a way to ask her. It’s not your father you should be worried about though. Silver is Rainbow Dash’s daughter, you’ll have to ask her if it is okay for you to marry Silver.”

His eyes widened. “Ask Rainbow Dash? Mom… you’re her friend can you ask for me?”

Fluttershy looked at him. “No Dox. You’ll have to.”

Paradox gave a sigh. “How am I going to ask her? This is getting complicated.”

“It’s only as complicated as you make it out to be.” Fluttershy smiled.

“How did Dad ask your family?”

“Oh, well Doxy, my family… um… my parents are no longer alive.” She whispered sadly.

“Oh! Oh so that is why Lilly and I don’t have grandparents. I’m sorry Mom, I forgot about that.” Paradox felt very awkward. “I have a lot to think about.”

“Are you going to join me on that walk?” Fluttershy asked.

He smiled at his mother. “Okay.”
