Chapter Two: part four

Three days later, Eloran went before the King. “I would like to travel, if I may.”

“Where would you like to go?”

“Gateway.”

The King looked to Klaes, then back to his son. “Why?”

Eloran wanted to make something up, had been trying to come up with a plausible lie for the past three days and had come up with nothing. He took a deep breath and tried the truth. He was in a room with his father and Klaes. The truth might be safe.

“I wish to see Anan.”

The King stifled a laugh and Eloran relaxed. “You may go, but you will take a guard. Klaes will assign someone to you.”

Eloran smiled to his father, nearly speechless. “Thank you, sire.”

“It takes one day to travel there. I want you back in four days. In five days there is a ball that you will attend.”

The Prince bowed again. “Yes, sir. Thank you, father.”

“Dismissed.”

Eloran nodded, went to Klaes and the two went to find the Prince a guard.
