"Hurry Luke!" My mother whispered yelled. We ran down the castle steps. I was only in a robe because my mother had woken me up and told me I was leaving. We reached outside where I saw a helicopter was waiting.
"What's going on!" I yelled as I stopped my mother from running any further. She looked at me with fear in her eyes.
"Your Uncle John is coming over to kill you if we don't get you out of here. You're going to live with a woman and her two daughters in America until we can do something about John. But I must stay. I must stay here and rule over the kingdom while you are gone," she informed. A tear ran down her cheek as she said that. She pulled me in for a hug and kissed my forehead. Tears came to my eyes too as we pulled away.
"What will he do to you?" I asked. I could see a few men rushing some of my clothes on the helicopter. "How long do I have to stay in America?"
"I don't know," she answered as more tears slide down her cheek. She hugged me again and then dragged me to the helicopter. I got in and they handed me a headset so I can sound out the helicopter sound. The men got into their seats and we were off. My mother waved from the ground as the helicopter took off. Her figure became tinier and tinier as it went.
The helicopter landed on a small farm. A woman ran out to greet me.
"Are you Luke, son of Andrew, prince of Troet?" she asked. More like yelled because the helicopter was still on. I nodded. "Come with me," she continued as I got down and followed. Two girls stood at the door of a small house. One looked to be around my age with brown wavy hair and brown eyes. The other was younger. Around eight with darker brown straight hair, almost black and green eyes. Both of them looked at me with wonder. "Well don't just stand there! Kneel and introduce yourself," the woman snapped. The older one spoke first.
"I'm Andromeda. Nice to meet you, Prince Luke," she greeted as she kneels in front of me. The younger one just stood there until Andromeda nudged here.
"Oh! I'm London. Nice to meet you too, Prince Luke," as she tried to do what her sister did. I chuckled at her cuteness.
"Nice to meet you, girls, too but you don't have to kneel to me. For now on I'm just Luke. No prince. And I'm just a friend visiting from England," I said.
"Well I'm Kathrine and if you need anything you can always ask me or the girls. Andromeda, why don't you show Luke to his room?" the woman asked Andromeda. She nodded and signal for me to follow.
