Chapter 1 Hot Air Balloon in the Sky
I nearly passed out from exhaustion, dropping to my knees with my head in my hands. Mason had me and Boz running for the past…
"My kings it's only been five minutes, if you want to keep in shape you must run more before collapsing."
I looked up and glared at him. "Mason we're not all part sasquatch!"
"Sorry your majesty. I just feel you should run more and get in shape. Your father would have wanted you to learn to fight and work out."
"Yeah, well… too bad. Me and Boz are not meant to fight and stuff..."
"My kings please reconsider."
Boz finally spoke up. "No thank you Mason I'd rather just swing around in the jungle for a while. You know this island has even better bananas than on Mindu."
Mason sighed in defeat. And I silently thanked the heavens. After a few minutes of hard work (otherwise trying to stand up) I managed to reach the plaza where I collapsed again.
A pair of feet in ugly man sandals stepped in front of my face. "Your majesty do you mind taking a nap somewhere else we're about to start guard practice." I looked up to see the hazel eyed brown haired guard girl with giant feet.
"Sorry Mikayla, blame your dad he had me and Boz working out."
She raised an eyebrow.
"WHAT! YOU KNOW THAT ME AND BRADY ARE ALLERGIC TO WORK MIKAYLA!" She paled a bit and I realized what I said. Brady. Ever since he left everyone seemed to forget about no one has mentioned him since Boz arrived we haven't even said his name. The very name struck me with angry and sadness I miss him but he just abandoned me and the whole island for a girl, a girl who didn't even like him. What and idiot! "I'm sorry Mikayla it just sort of slipped off my tongue."
She sniffled slightly. "Yeah, I got to go…." With that she ran off back to her room. Wow! Was that because of Brady? I thought she didn't care about him I mean he annoyed her so much with his flirting and ever since he left she seemed happier, a little weirder but happier for sure. Maybe it's a good thing he left, I mean Boz showed up when he left, but I do miss him.
I finally managed to get back up to my knees, breathing very quickly. After I caught my breath I stood up and then I started looking for Mikayla. I walked to the throne room but she wasn't there so I headed to her room and knocked on the door.
"Mikayla, are you in there?" I called. I didn't hear her reply but I heard her sniffling again. I opened the door slightly. "Mikayla?"
"GO AWAY!" She yelled and suddenly a machete hit the door and I yelped and ducked out of the way.
"Mikayla I just came to see if you're alright."
"WELL I'M FINE!"
"No you're not. I don't know if this is about Brady or something else, but if it is about Brady you know you can talk to me I mean he's my brother or at least I thought he was. We went through everything together and then he just up and leaves me and the island. He just betrayed me!" I realized I was shouting and I spoke quieter again. "So if you want to talk just tell me, okay?"
She didn't say anything just sat silently.
"Okay fine I'll leave." I started to walk out of the room.
"I miss him alright." I turned to around to face her. "I actually started to sort of start to like him before he left. I had a dream about him and then I kind out started to have some feelings about him. Then he overheard Candace tell me a rumor that I would never date him unless he grew up and he couldn't do that as long as he's king of this island. It wasn't true and I wish I could do something to bring him back."
Boomer slowly stood up with a blank expression on his face.
"So you're the reason my brother left the island?" he said calmly.
"Yes." I replied cautiously.
"You know I can't believe you Mikayla!" He screamed at me.
"I'm sorry your majesty."
"NO YOU'RE NOT! YOU'RE HAPPY HE LEFT I CAN TELL YOU'RE ALWAYS HAPPY SINCE HE LEFT! YOU WENT TOO FAR THIS TIME!"
"MY KING!" I was nearly in tears by this point.
"Whatever!" Boomer stormed out and slammed the door.
I fell back onto the bed with my face in my hands.
I can't believe Mikayla! How come she didn't tell me before!
"Boomer!" Looking back I saw Boz trying to get my attention.
"Oh, hey Boz."
"What's wrong bro?"
"Oh nothing. I just found out that Mikayla is the reason why my best friend and brother abandoned me and the island!"
"Whoa, wait what happened?"
"Brady overheard a conversation about her never dating him and she was lying because she told me she is starting to have feelings for him!"
"Well you can't be too mad at her."
I looked at him like he just grew another head. "Are you nuts! You don't even like her!"
"Boom, she didn't tell Brady to leave he made that decision you can't blame her for that."
I sighed. "I know, I just miss him and I can't believe he left me."
We arrived in my I mean our room. I'm still getting used to the fact that Boz is my brother we have had some adventures like the dance off, the Kinkowian teen summer cruise and fighting off tarantula people to return the baby prince, but it's not the same.
We walked onto the balcony and looked down at the guards training minus Mikayla. I guess I really upset her.
Boz started to nudge me with his elbow. "Boomer, what's that?" He pointed to the sky.
My balloon was slowly descending on a small island with a swirl in the middle. My destination was a castle on the lighter side of the island. At one point I would have called it home, it may still be but not for long. I return to tell my brother and friends something I hoped I would never have to say. Goodbye.
Sorry for the wait I've been so busy with studying for any exam and a new member of the family! Please let me know what you think in your reviews!
