"That would be me," I say, looking at Shote and the girl who calls herself Elenia. They both turn to look at me.

"You?" Shote says un an unbelieving tone. I roll my eyes.

"Yes, me. Don't look at me like that."

I turn to Elenia. "Let me explain myself though. My name is Starlight, or at least that's what I go by. I am the royal princess, at least I am by heritage, though the current queen would have you believe otherwise. I'm glad you're here, I thought my prophesy would never come true."

"Your prophesy?" says Elenia.

"Oh, I don't mean I prophesied it. My father was the king before he died, but my mother was decended from the one who told the prophesy, so I'm both royal princess and prophetess. I don't usually say the prophetess part, it doesn't mean anything nowadays. More of the queens doing. I'll help you though, as long as you don't forget about me when you do come to power."

She looks at me, incredulous.

"Okay, that would be, um, nice," she says. I smile.
