'They somehow caused even more chaos, the King thinking that the marrying under her was being a disgrace,'
'So, in blind rage the King banished her to the parallel world; your world,' I looked at them both as a chill ran down my spine.
'So they adjusted to the modern world, the daughter becoming a primary school teacher and the stable boy a fiction writer,' Hester continued as the man stared down into the fire.
'They had a child, who grew up unknowing of her high blood status. Learning of this, the King ordered for the daughter to be brought back along with his grandchild in order for their upbringing to be proper in the palace,' the man recollected. At this point I was holding my breath, my chest constricting so painfully tight as I waited for him to continue.
'But when portaling to this land, the daughter managed to leave the child behind with their father,' he said in an almost whisper.
'But what's that got to do with me?' I ask as the tension rises.
'You're the daughter's child,' He said. My heart stopped. I can't be.
'You've... you've go the wrong person; I'm not special!' I defended, not believing any of this. I'm going to wake up any minute now from this crazy dream.
'You are,' Hester said. My head started to swim as I realised how this would change my life forever. I didn't want this.
'Is she alive....? My mum I mean,' I asked.
They both looked up at me.
