Kingdom of Crestoria! 14
“Grillexhot… The face..” My mumbles were interrupted by a door that sung open with brute force. A voice that followed looked similar to that of the queen and by the sound of it, she was pretty angry.
“Scowler, where the hell are you. You got some explaining to do you slimy toad. What just happened?” The queen’s face was all puffed up with a demeanour she could just devour you in that very instant if she would not agree with his answer.
-“What brings you hear you royal squeakiness.” Soon as he uttered those words I had to smile just a little. True enough when she is angry her voice gets a little higher. To think he was to address his queen just like that. ‘Did he have a dead wish?’
But her gaze was going through the room and ended looking me in the eyes. “What is that brat doing here? Listen up you moron how it is that you are the smartest Scowler, it’s beyond me, so speak up”
She just totally ignored his response and just went on with her questioning on a calmer tone. A little uncomfortable I tried to keep myself standing against the fire place. Having wanted that same answer as well. After all, Scowler did say it was a day early.
The queen strides up to the table to where we had the map laid open and some of the text he had ben shifting through after all this happened. You could tell by his face, Scowler did not have an answer to this. His wrinkles on its forehead were as prominent as mountain ridges on a planet slimy drops covered his exposed skin as his finger ran through the books in front of him. Page after page was turned and eyes rolled left and right with words been mumbled from his lips.
The air in the booklatory was that of a thick soup. Hard to breath as the queen kept an nervous eye on me and her advisor. The pressure on the chest from not knowing the answers we all so despreatly were seeking had most of our hope sink into our shoes. Forcing us to keep in our spot, simply because we were unable to move.
“Hey brat, why are you not training huh?”
The question came as a shock but had me motionless just staring at the queen. “I… Well I am here.”
“What kind of answer is that. I am here. I am not that blind, I can see you. As our hero you should be training so go already!” Her snare was loud and clear and even had Scowler look up from his book and wave at me to go as well.
Guess we won’t have an answer any time soon. Weak at my knees I walk as upright as possible to the door where Grub was leaning against the wall with a smirk on his face.
“We are ready preparing for you Duncan, hope you are ready for this. Took you longer than expected, something happen in there”
The question had me lower my head in shame, “I rather not talk about that now Grub.”
“Hahaha bet the queen scared you shitless. Come along it is this way.”
