Deja Discord Part 7: Hide and Discord
Discord cantered over to the library of his...friend Twilight Sparkle. He hated using that word, but it was as close as he could think they were. Discord knocked on the library door.
Twilight's #1 assistant, Spike, opened the door. He looked up at the Chaos stallion in shock. "What're you doing here?" Spike asked. Discord smirked. "I'm here for your beloved Twilight Sparkle."
Spike instantly jumped on Discord and attacked him. "You leave her alone you big bully! You-Woaoah!" A glow surrounded Spike. He lifted off of the stallion and plopped down next to his guardian. "Gee, thanks Twilight," Spike said blushing a bit. "I almost went crazy."
Twilight smiled, and turned to Discord. "So, Discord, how'd you get here so fast? You were supposed to work with one pony each day." Discord smirked again. "I finished the, um, tasks at hoof pretty fast."
Twilight took into account the look on his face that said 'I screwed everypony up'. She led him into the library, readying herself should he try something. Discord walked to the center, spinning around to look at all the books lining the shelves. "Impressive," Discord whistled. He trotted over to the shelves, eyeing each tome and spellbook. He then turned his attention to the odd knic-knacs lying around. "Wow, nice telescope," Discord admired. He trotted over to a statue of a pegasus. "Oh, don't blink!" He stared at it for a long while.
The purple unicorn thought he had lost his mind. Discord then burst out in laughter. Yep, he's crazy, she thought.
"So, your temporary task for today is to organize this shelf." She pointed a hoof over to a large, wall-sized shelf, books strewn all about. "Oh, and no magic. I'll be back soon!"
The door slammed shut behind the pony and baby dragon. Discord was alone in a library. He giggled. "No magic, huh?" He questioned nopony. "We'll see about th-AAAAAAAAAT!!!" As Discord tried to activate his horn, a shock shook his entire body. "D'oh, a magic shield. Clever, Sparkle, clever..."
Discord spent the day organizing the books-without magic- and finished in about three hours. And still no Twilight.
"Rrr, where is she?!" He yelled. "She said that she'd be back soon!" Discord kicked the ground with a hoof.
"Wait, I've got an idea." He smiled.
Twilight came home, levitating large bags of groceries. "Discord, I'm back!" She called out. "That shelf better be finished."
She cantered over to said shelf, which was- to her surprise- perfectly orderly, even alphabetized. "Huh, guess he got bored..."
She then realized that the stallion was nowhere to be seen. How could that be? She locked the door, magic-sealed the windows, and he wasn't strong enough to crash through a wall.
Spike looked around as well. Comically, he picked up his bed and looked under it. No Discord.
"Diiis-corrd!" Twilight called. "Where are you?" She heard a snicker. Twilight located the sound near a statue, but there wasn't anyone there.
Twilight was about to call the Royal Guard, but she remembered- I don't have a statue of a colt!
Indeed, the statue beared a similar image to the colt version of the avatar of chaos. She took a quill to her side. Discord remained still.
She brought the quill to Discord's side, and lightly rubbed his stomach. He struggled to contain his laughter.
Not long after, Twilight began tickling him all over, and that was it. Discord laughed and laughed, gray paint flying off of him as he struggled against Twilight's assault.
"P-please! AHAHA! Twilight, s-stop! You win! haha! You found me!" Discord gasped for breath.
Twilight herself was laughing at the site. The former entity of disharmony- even if he was a colt, it was still a sight to see such an evil being giggle like a schoolfilly.
Spike walked in on this, and stared in disbelief. "Uh, Twilight?..." He finally got out.
The purple unicorn instantly stopped her tickle tirade, and Discord stopped laughing. Both looked at Spike, then at each other, and back at Spike.
Spike then shook his head. "I don't even wanna know," He said. He walked back to his room.
Discord got up, dusted himself off, and walked towards the door. Twilight stopped him. "Hey! You haven't done enought work around here!" Discord looked at her scornfully. "I've done enough." He said, a bit of edge in his voice.
Twilight wondered what bothered the former draconequus. Had it been because she tickled him? Or did she mess up his precious little joke on her?
Discord, as though able to read minds, pointed a hoof over to the book that lay on Twilight's desk.
Discord: A historical documentation of the tyrant rule of the draconequus
