Microstory 255: Perspective Thirty

Perspective Twenty-Nine

I am Prince Malvolio, heir to the throne of Atlantis, and Knight of the Eleven Realms. My mother lets me do whatever I want, and she never makes me clean my room. I spend my days battling sea dragons and finding hidden treasure. When I was six years old, I discovered that the man I thought was my father was actually not. And I knew it, I just did. There was no way I was related to this drunk who hits me and my mother. My real father is actually Aliouso, Master and God of Wave and Sand. He has been on important business for the last few years, mediating peace talks amongst the three races of Miandralu. But one day, he will return to Atlantis and remove the evil fake father from his place. After he and my mother have finished their reign, he will pass the crown to me, and I will rule with my love. She is a human from Landrealm who’s come to visit us with her friend and mentor, Professor Collywobbles. She is the most beautiful creature I have ever seen, with or without her mask. She does not like to speak, but I can hear the music from her heart. Hers is the most soothing and amazing voice in all of Elevendrel. Others think they know her. They call her their class pet, and they take comfort in her embrace, but they do not understand her. When she and I draw, it is as if we are one person, with a singular vision. We create worlds together, and we help fix the problems of their inhabitants. I know that she feels the same way about me, even if she cannot tell me so out loud. Last week, an evil duke came to our chariot and tried to steal her mask. But I took care of him. So what if I was suspended for three days? No one harms the Imperatrix and gets away with it. But now I am back, and can see my love again. I think I’ll finally make my move and sit next to her. We’ll be holding hands by the end of the school year.
