Kingdom of Crestoria! 8
“I can’t be bothered with this kind of insolence, it is just giving me a headache. What do you know, human?” The queen reacts agitated turning her hand at her wrist as if to say I need to hurry and speak up.
Though what am I to say, I do not know anything. I just woke up with a lump on my head in a prison. All these thoughts rushed through my head on lightning fast speed. Guess all I could do it tell the truth.
With a deep breath I start to tell them what I known had happened so far.
“Last thing I remembered was that I was hiding from a group of bullies. I didn’t want to end up beaten again. So I ran until the ground was swept from underneath me and I fell down head first in a puddle of mud. I was stuck knee deep inside a hole. Near a cliff. As I crawled up I saw a small cavity in the wall. With the screams getting closer of those few that followed me I climbed up and kept silent until they all gave up and left.”
-“Can you hurry up already, I have no idea where this is going. What does that have to do with us?” The queen can’t sit still as she tries to listen to what I am telling her as what happened prior to coming here. The Princess is playing with her curls and dress. Uninterested she is just present.
“I only know that after they left I sighed loud and slammed my head back into the wall. Hurting my head and looking up. IN the rock bed was something stuck and as I tried to remove it from its prison a rock fell and hit me in the head knocking me out with a right flash. After that I woke up in a prison and not much later I stand here before you. I do not why I am here or even how I got here. I am asking you… what the hell is going on with me. Am I crazy, are you all figments of my imagination. I DO NOT KNOW.”
-“How Dare you raise your voice to me, you lowly life form. It is clear you are a nobody.” The queen sits back down and rubs her head in pain. “Adelina, take him to the scholar, help him understand our prophecy and what it is that is needed of him. And hurry, I am going back to my quarters.”
“For real, but daddy.”
-“Stop asking your dad to give you a break, do as your told” The queen gnarls at the young princess who is clearly isn’t pleased with the task that was brought up to her.
“I do not like the scholar, mister know it all. You come with me. Grub hurry up and get over here.”
Grub comes in swiftly and stands beside me in no time. “Lets go. So what do you think of Matti, scary right. And that voice, she squeaks like a bird. Oh and if you ever find her laughing you will be in for a surprise. Hahaha.”
-“Grub will you just hurry and get this over with. I wanted to meet the hero not babysit him. And now I have to meet him as well.”
“Ooh come on princess, what’s keeping you from testing him. It could be fun.”
The face of the princess changes into something dangerous and with a deadly intent. A lust to fight and anger rises just like I could sense from the bullies. My legs just shook and were ready to make a run for it.
