Didn't mean to submit that XD
I had been talking with Nathaniel and Illyss when I stopped and saw something. I ran over and looked out into the distance where a black cloud was beginning to grow. My eyes widened with terror and I screamed before the evacuation bells sounded, meaning that we had an emergency on our hands and everyone had to get out of the castle. Everyone on the balcony locked eyes before hurrying out the door. I was about to go when I saw a little girl, probably about 5 or 6 years old, on the ground below the balcony. I quickly jumped over the side, landing right next to the girl before scooping her up in my arms. She had tears running down her cheeks, and was sobbing. "Where's your mommy honey?" I asked the wide-eyed girl dressed in Servant clothes as I ran, "M-My mommy is d-dead." She sniffled out quietly.
We arrived and I saw my friends from the balcony. I ran over to them, still holding the little girl with my dress and hair covered in dirt and mud. "What are we going to do?" I asked curiously, "We're evacuating to your castle." Angel said quietly. I finally let go of the little girl and wrapped my arms around Angel, "We need to do something, ALL of us." I said, glancing around to circle to stare at the rest of them. "I know how to stop the mist!" The little girl said with a scratchy voice, "but the royal families wanted to keep it hidden." She said worriedly, "Keep WHAT hidden?" One of us demanded angrily, "if there's a way to stop this, we better do it."
