The Disappearing Heirs~ Part 2
I opened the door and I saw a staircase that went deep underground. This all just kept getting weirder and weirder. After walking down the stairs, I walked through a dark hall until I finally came to a room where I saw two ladies standing.
They seemed to be having an argument with one another, so I stepped back and listened to what was being said. “I am the princess, detective, and I want to leave this underground house right NOW!” The more nicely dressed girl screamed. “You listen here – it is my duty to protect you. Now unless you want to be captured as well, you will do as I say, alright?” The one, who I supposed was the detective explained.
“Ahem.” I said as I walked into the room.
The detective turned quickly and sharply towards me. “What are you doing here? How’d you get in here?” She asked forcefully. She asked the second question so quickly that I didn’t even have a chance to answer the first.
“Speak up! What’s your name?” The detective asked again. Then I noticed her gazing at my package.
I tried to tuck the package back a little more without being so conspicuous. “My name is Allie Gramer. I’m trying to locate the owner of this package.” I said simply.
“I am detective Monica Jones. Now tell me, how did you find this place?” Monica asked. I told her all about the strange package and how I stomped my foot down and all of a sudden a huge fence appeared. She listened intently, glancing at the package from time to time.
When I was finished with my story, she pointed to the package and asked, “Is this the package?”
I nodded and said, “Yeah, but I suppose it’s yours now.”
I handed her the package and she looked at it closely. “Father..” She whispered to herself.
At long last, the fancy girl spoke up. “Excuse me!” She said loudly.
Monica outstretched her hand towards the girl and said, “Oh, yes, allow me to present, Princess Katrina of Riverdale.”
Princess Katrina walked up to me and said, “How do you do?” I did an awkward little bow and said, “It’s an honor to meet you.” I felt so awkward! I didn’t know how to speak to a princess! “Allie, you must understand that I am working on a top secret case. No one must know about me, or the princess. Do you understand?” Monica explained. All I could do was nod.
She unwrapped a tiny crown and read us the note:
“Detective Monica Jones,
A new princess has been born. He will seek her out next. Go to London. He is already on the move. Leave immediately.
Then Katrina walked over to her and whispered, “What shall we do now?” Monica rolled her eyes as though it should be obvious to her. “We do as the note says. We must leave immediately for London.” She said seriously.
Monica came close to me and said in a low, serious voice, “There is a man traveling all around the world capturing every single heir to all the thrones in the world. We don’t know his purpose, we don’t even know his name, but the agency has labeled him as Simons. I’ve been working on this case for a year now and every government agencies are working with me to help keep this case top secret. Katrina is one of the last remaining heirs that I am doing my best to protect. Now you know everything, and I do not know if I can trust you to keep this all a secret. You’re coming with us, Allie.”
Monica and I stood in silence for a moment as I thought this whole thing over. I was scared, but I was also a little excited. What an adventure this would be! At long last I said boldly, “Alright. I’ll go.”
That ends Part 2! The next part will be coming tomorrow! I hope you’re liking it so far! 😀
