How do the monsters get out if there’s no way to them? I ask.
As you wish, Dad said. General Leger and a few guards will be nearby. If you need anything, simply ask. We want you to have a wonderful day.Thank you, Daddy.
No, he said, embracing me, thank you.He pulled away and offered his arm to Mom. They walked off, and I felt like I could see their happiness glowing simply in the way they moved.Your Highness, General Leger said gently. I turned to see his smiling face. Nervous?
I shook my head slightly, almost convincing myself. Bring the first one out.He nodded before making eye contact with a butler down the hall. A boy walked out of one of the libraries, straightening his cuff links as he approached. He was lean and a little on the short side, but he had a pleasant enough face.
He stopped in front of me, bowing. Fox Wesley, Your Highness.
I tilted my head in greeting. A pleasure.Four looks serious now too when he turns to face me, which is not a look I see on him too often.
Three stalks toward me, his little Rafael things in his hands. Sai, I think they’re actually called. And it’s one of those words where that’s the plural and singular way to say it. I think.Not the important part. The important part is that he’s wanting to use one of those sai to gut me. I can tell by that familiar murderous look in his eyes.
I’ve seen him use those weapons many times.Stop! Four snaps, stepping in front of me before Three can pointlessly use those weapons.
