I yawned. I stretched, and I went back to bed. I repeated that process again. Then I knew I couldn't ignore my alarm. I woke up this time. I looked around. Something was wrong. This wasn't my room. My room was messy, and not some fancy rich person room, full of white and a huge bed. What kind of skateboard was that? What was going on. I got up and looked at the closet. What had happened to this person's clothes. They were... plastic!
I sat on the couch, and felt the stiffness. Who would want a couch like this? I opened another door. A living room was in there. Another door held a bathroom. Way too advanced to be a bathroom. The "shower" was just a bunch of small holes in the wall. A built in tablet in the wall told me the date time, and "Good Morning Princess Cecily."
That wasn't my name. I definitely wasn't a princess, and the year wasn't 4213. A door opened and a lady rushed into my room.
"Merry Christmas Cecily! Time to get you ready."
"Sure," I said playing along with the game. Something that wasn't this lady whispered in my ear. "Go along with it. I'll explain tonight. Act like a princess, and keep a good posture!"
Meanwhile, this strange lady was pushing me in the shower. She clapped two times and I was immersed in warm water. A machine played with my hair and I sat there trying to figure out where and who everyone thought I was. Where was my family, and why was I here? The lady, who called herself my new maid, tucked and pulled and pushed. She put my long hair up in a braid that wrapped around my head. She put on a gown of blue silk. She said it matched my eyes, and my hair. She ushered me into a large dining room, where a king and queen sat, no doubt my "parents" along with a young girl, maybe 4 years old, and 2 boys who looked like twins.
"Cecily, have a seat please. We were worried about you. Thought you might have gotten hurt. Please be on time for the morning meal tomorrow."
"I'm sorry, Mother." I improvised.
"It's all right dear, but with all the rebel attacks, I fear one of you may be hurt."
Rebel attacks? I didn't know who these people were, or where I was, but I knew that couldn't be good.
