The form of the knight who spoke shimmered and blurred, changing completely into someone else. Princess Aria.
We all obeyed, startled into submission. Everyone but Coral that is. She had already killed the knight she was fighting. She just sat at the edge of her pool, smiling happily.
Good. Guards, go into the back room and stay there; pretend like you didn't see us. The rest of you need to get out of here. But on one condition: you take me with you.
You heard the Evil Queen. She's trying to get information. To spy on us!
No. Absolutely not.
I guess that's true.
Noah! Why not? She obviously wants to leave.
Listen, I know my mom is awful and evil, but that doesn't mean I am! I have wanted to get away from here almost my whole life. I have never been anywhere but this castle and the grounds. I want to see the world and make sure that it doesn't get destroyed. We want the same things: to save the world and stop a full-out war from happening. Just give me a chance.
We decided that the only fair way to settle this would be to have a vote.
