Paradise chapter 16More Like This
Fear and control are interlinked. When we’re sure of our command, we fear not. When our grasp is tenuous, we become afraid.
—Excerpts from the Candid Sayings of Celestia as recorded by her friends
They had a plan. Unlike the morning before, when Celestia awoke to stare aimlessly at the dawn light, letting her mind wander as it crept into the cave, today had purpose. Direction.
Yet still, a purpose different from before. No heart deep aspirations filled her, like wonder for the magic of the unicorns, the longing to see home, or need for Luna to learn the gift of wings. No, today’s purpose came from the basest of needs.
Celestia’s stomach pained her in reminder and she stifled a groan. Though the generosity of Momma’s shared meals sustained her, she felt the caution of the elder pegasus’ words settle on her shoulders like a weight. You should probably find more food soon. You will be unable to live on these small bites forever.
