My Princess

I walked down the steps, my hand sliding down the railing, a fake smile plastered across my face. I waved to the invisible audience, and stepped down to the bottom of the staircase. I held up the skirt of my gown a little, making sure not to trip over my long dress. Walking towards my father and mother, I let go of my gown letting the hem of its skirt reach the ground. I stood in front of my father, and he slowly placed a tiara on my head. "You are now known as Princess Victoria Nicolette Lexington, Duchess of Austria!" he proclaimed, and then carefully removed the delicate tiara from my head, placing it back in its glass case. Introducing me, 18-year-old princess to be, Victoria Nicolette Lexington.

2. I Can Help You!

It has finally come upon me that I had been kidnapped. I unfortunately did not know how far away I was from my kingdom. I had to figure out a way to escape, what with my upcoming coronation. I somehow undid the handcuffs (which actually took an hour) and let my hands examine the floor for a solution. I suddenly felt one of the tiles shudder, and I removed the tile with my hands. It was a secret tunnel. I undid the knot holding my feet together, and climbed into the tunnel. Fortunately, there were breathing holes above me. After 5 hours, I finally saw the light of day and climbed out of the tunnel. I was free. I ran and ran from the tunnel, thinking they might have come looking for me. I accidentally stumbled into someone, making me fall to my feet. "Ow..." I groaned. "I'm so sorry! Here, I'll help you up..." the person that had bumped into me said. "Oh, thank you." I smiled. "My name is Victoria Nicolette Lexington, how do you do?" I curtsied, and held out my hand, waiting for him to shake. "You probably already know who I am." he sighed and rolled his eyes, awkwardly shaking my hand. "I actually have no clue who you are," I replied. "I'm in One Direction." he continued. "Haven't heard of it." I said. "So you really have no clue who I am?" he asked. I shook my head. "I'm Niall." he said. "Nice to meet you Niall. Lovely name." I smiled. "Um, thanks? I suppose yours is too." Niall replied. "Thank you," I said. "Well, I best be scurrying off. Someone might be chasing after me, and I'm frightened they'll capture me again. Have a good day, Niall..." I started to run away. "Wait." he said, grabbing my wrist. "What are you doing here? Where are you from?" he asked, eying my gown. "It's best that I don't tell you, but...I was captured. I found an escape tunnel and I'm afraid they might be after me. I live far away from here. You know too much, I must be going now..." I tried running, but again, Niall grabbed me by the wrist and asked, "Why are they chasing after you?" "Well...do you promise not to tell anyone?" I asked. "Cross my heart." he replied. "Well, there's no other way to say this, but...Niall, I'm Victoria Nicolette Lexington III, princess of Austria." I explained. "What? You're a...?" he asked, his jaw dropping. "Yes. A princess. I must go now, I appreciate your time, but goodbye!" I said, running away once more. "Wait! Victoria!" Niall called. "Wait!! I can help you!!"
