Because I really enjoyed this part... |
She’d managed to get through about fifteen letters found in or related to Siana’s speech before the girl was interrupted by a polite, but fast knock on the door.
Siana paused, glancing at Zyke in confusion. “Ha!” she finally joked, “Don’t worry Zyke, it must be one of my suitors.”
Zyke snorted, rolling her eyes and waving to indicate that if she was so sure it was for her, she could get up and get it.
Siana stuck out her tongue, rolling over and saying in a high and fluttering tone, “Coming, darling!” as she opened the door with a flourish.
Both girls paled as it became apparent that it was Le’ahm, the prince of Ganoir behind the door. Siana actually stuttered, backing away as Le’ahm struggled to keep a straight face, asking, “I’m sorry, is Zyke there?”
Siana looked over her shoulder at Zyke, who was up in a flash and beside her friend, suddenly cursing herself passionately for never telling Siana where’d she’d gone. Sure enough, it was still the prince, grinning, with Quantros behind him, looking a bit mixed up as to whether he was smiling or looking worried.
“Wh…” Siana began, but didn’t get a chance before Zyke was pointing frantically at him and then the floor of the room.
Le’ahm shrugged, “Why am I here?” he asked, and Zyke nodded once as Siana gaped at the immediate understanding the prince had managed. “Well, father and I were talking and I asked if I could be the one to offer you what we came up with in person, rather than some silly note.” He smiled kindly, “Though by now you might actually be able to read it!”
Zyke almost shrugged, but Siana’s voice interrupted, “Zyke, what is going on!? Why is the prince here?! Why do you know him!?”
