"I know right!" Sang my mother, "is it not grand?"

Grand? That load if baloney is older than Zeus himself!

"Yeah," I said, "Grand."

We boarded and got a car all to ourselves, which was pretty big for just three of us. And I'll say, the inside was incredible. There were four bunks that had curtains so you could sleep. Two elegant purple chairs next to a window, a small table in the middle. A small booth next to another window decorated with lilies. The floor was carpet and with many designs. Now this was more like it, compared to the outside.

Gale and I sat in front of each other as we watched the trees pass by us through the window. Gale got a cup of green tea and I got a glass of water to pass the time. His eyes practically sparkled as I slid chocolate to him.

While we ate chocolate, I taught him how to play rock, paper, scissors. It took him the longest time to win, meaning I let him win. It's kind of hard to beat me when I can read your mind. It took us both lots of restraint not to attack each other and act childish in front of my mother.

As if he read my mind he grabbed my hand. I looked up at him surprised.

She is not the Princess today so it is fine, right?

I pushed my face into my other arm so I could hide my blush. Gale couldn't stop smiling in happiness. I heard my mother chuckle in the background, it made me even more embarrassed.
