As the the day broke, and in the distance, the sun rose, Noob made his way out of the beautiful bedroom that he had been staying in for the couple of days that it took to reach an agreement on how to move forward in the relations for the two kingdoms.
As Prince Zoin was on his morning stroll around the palace, he saw Noob walk past the great Kings’ hall (a hall filled with pictures of all the kings of Mercury).
“Noob my friend, why leave so early, one would think you trying to leave in secret.”
As Prince Zion spoke these words, a strong voice, from around the corner shouted;
“Well if she is going with him, then I will accompany them”.
“That must be Hercules”, Noob thought to himself, rolling rolled his eyes.
Prince Zion sighed, “what is Hercules shouting about now, this early in the day? You would think he would be more calm as an army general. Stay here while I go see what the commotion is all about”
“Oh Zion, you don’t have to, I have an idea on what’s going on, I’ll come with you.” Noob spoke agreeably.
They made their way down the hall towards all the voices.
“I’m going to be taking Galicia with me as I go to the meeting of all the advisors of the Kings of the four great planets, we’ll be heading to Venus, that’s where they want to build the new galactic parliament.”
And just then, as if she knew that she was being spoken of, Galicia came behind them as they made it to the Kings lounge. When the door opened Hercules stood in front of the King in the presence of the other higher ranking generals.
“You, Martian Prince, step forward and explain why you think it’s a good idea taking one of my royal servants and now an army general, is this what your father sent you to do? To come destroy my kingdom slowly from the inside?” shouted the King, in a loud, angered voice.
“My dear King, please do settle down. I gave Galicia the permission to leave with the young Prince, they do seem to have good intentions with each other, I don’t see why it would be a problem.”
The Queen interrupted her husband, “Yes father, I also think it will be good for both our planets if they leave together, and who knows they might have a son that will one day be able to connect our two planets better than we could ever imagine”.
And as if on cue, Galicia stepped forward and knelt in front of the King, slowly, Noob joined her.
“Great King Shona, please understand, I never meant to find a wife on this planet, my mission was only diplomatic, but this lady caught more than my eye and mind, she captured my heart as well.”
“I don’t like this or approve of it one bit.” Hercules admitted.
“Oh mighty Hercules..” Noob began, “I could do with a strong commanding figure such as yourself to help, should I encounter hostilities as I’m traveling the galaxies.”
And with that, Noob stood up and the King took Galicia’s hand and helped her stand.
“My dear girl, I can see that traveling with this Prince is what your heart desires, I shall grant you permission, but my wife shall feel your absence greatly.”
And with the biggest smile she had had in a while, Galicia said, “May the mighty creators and all the past Kings of Mercury show grace on you and your kingship and may all your descendants be shown the same grace”
Noob walked around the spaceship doing he’s usual checks before lift off.
“Your honorable Prince Noob, may I come in?” The voice Noob heard was one he was very familiar with. “Galicia, please accept the incoming communication on my communication device?”
Galicia touched the big screen that was in front of her.
“Who are you, what have you done to the great Prince Noob?” asked an old looking man who had appeared on the screen.
“I’m the Princes’ companion, My name is Galicia, I am the former leader of the Queen of Mercury’s court.”
The old man responded as if she were wasting his time, “enough with you Galy, whatever your name is, listen, I need to give the Prince a message, where is he?” The rude caller inquired with an investigative tone.
“I’m here Enoch, and in future I’d appreciate it if you addressed Galicia with more respect, what do you want anyway?”
“You should have mentioned to us that you would be taking stowaways with you.”
“she’s not a stowaway, and if you must know, I have one more traveler here, he’s here for security.”
“Anyway, another time for all of that, there’s a pressing issue you need to attend to.”
