A/N Hey guyssss NEW CHAPTER vote/comment/fan please :) thanks for reading Enjoy :)

“Yeah right.” I say “Just like you wrote all the books in this library? Hahaha” I said teasing him.

“No really.” He said with a serious face.

He reaches down his shirt and pulls out something at the end of a chain. A familiar stone is at the end of it.

“is that…” I trail off as he hands it to me. “Marc gave me one just like this” I say reaching for the necklace that I hadn’t taken off since the party. It wasn’t there. “what did you take it off of me while I was knocked out?”

“whattt?” he laughs “uhh no, check your pocket princess.” He says amused.

I reach down and feel the lump in my pocket, I pull at the chain to get it out of my pocket. “oh” I say embarrassed.

“soo.. are these like friendship necklaces or..?” I ask

“These are the the coolest thing about being a prince, youre born with this stone in your hand to prove your royal birth. It just happens somehow. Anyway, these stones are connected to us somehow. Here, take this in your hand" he said holding out his chain to me.

"Okay?" I say eyeing the necklace.

"okay good, now rub the surface of it and think something." he said.

"um no that's weird" i replied.

"just please?" He begged.

"Ugh, sure whatever." i caved.

i swiped my finger over the cool glassy surface of the gem. "i wish i had a cheeseburger" i thought to myself. Not breaking eye contact with him.

"You want some food? We have a pantry downstairs" he says coolly. "Oh and if you want i can help you get your friends back."

"What the hell!?" i whisper thrusting the rock back into his brown hands. "that's just creepy."

"I told you that its cool." he said smirking.

"So you said something about helping me?" I said changing the topic.

"Oh yeah sure. I've nothing better to do." he said.

"I don't get it... how are you the prince and yet I've never seen you before and no one has ever mentioned you? very questionable if you ask me."

He looked at me shaking his head. "I wish I could tell you but... that unfortunately is classified information. If i told you, i would have to kill you."

I looked at him intently "I'm sorry i asked." i muttered.

"You should see your face. I'm kidding kid lighten up!" He says laughing

"Kid?!" i retort "And how old are you, to think of me as a kid?" 

"I'm 21" he answers pushing his lips to one side in victory.

"Wow a whole four years, hats off to you sir, you win." I say sarcastically. "But seriously, what happened? Why are you not in the spotlight with the rest of your family and why does no one ever talk about you?" I ask.

"Long story short, no one knows i exist." he says looking at me under his thick brow.

"Can we be serious for one second?" i ask at the ridiculousness of his answer.

"I'm being perfectly serious. I'm the secret around here. No one knows about me. Not even Marc. My parents are the only ones who are aware of who i am. I have been out and about but i have never been noticed as anything but a member of the kingdom." 

"Okay well answer me this, why did you tell me, of all people, about this. what makes you so sure that I'm trustworthy and wont go off telling everyone?"

"First off, no one would believe you if you told them,  second, you ARE trustworthy and third, you need my help so why would you do that?" he said.

I looked at him, studying his face. he looked kind and sincere. but there was something about his eyes that revealed a wild side. A glimmer of adventure and wonder. "how do you know that im trustworthy?" i said curiously.

"The stone does a lot more then let me know what you're thinking at the moment. It lets me into your personality, It helps me to understand you fully. But its weird, usually when I do that, I know everything there is to know about the person. With you, it was like there was a wall up, i only know that you're trustworthy hungry and miss your friends. Its like you have blockers up that deny me any access to anything except what you would want me to know. its cool."

"That is so weird" I say laughing. "there is absolutely nothing like this where im from."

"You wanna go raid the pantry and then make a plan to save your friends?" he asks helping me up from the floor. 

"Race ya" i say taking off towards the door. I stop short realizing that I don't know where the pantry is."OK how about we sneak into the pantry seeing as I'm not supposed to be out of my room and technically no one knows who you even are. you lead" i say.

"Deal. follow me." 

We spent the next hour making crazy combinations of food, baking them and eating them to see who's tastes weirder. I had never laughed so hard in my whole life. He told me stories of the different aliases he had used to go unrecognized.

we were sitting on the floor, covered in flour from the fight we just had, breathing rapidly and suppressing laughter so no one would wake up. I had a bowl of the "Magical surprise" that he made out of everything purple he could find in the kitchen, i think there's some flower petals mixed in there but I'm so tired I dont even care.

"Well should we get back to it then?" he asked referring to the plan to save my friends. 

"I know this sounds terrible but I don't think id be much help with that at this time of the night, I'm so tired. Can we meet again tomorrow night and finish this?"

"Me too" okay tomorrow night at ten ill knock on your door tree times, at that point, wait ten seconds and then go left down the hall, ill be in the room with the candle outside of it. I will have everything we need to plan this in secret." 

"Deal" i said smiling and standing up. 

"Which room is yours anyway?" he asked realizing he didn't know.

"Well ill show you cause I have no idea." i said helping him up and brushing some flour off of my arm.

"Remember we have to be quiet." he said putting his finger over his lips.

"Duh" i said and quickly put away some of the stuff we had taken out.

we opened the door of the pantry and creeped back up the stairs to my room. we passed by one bedroom and almost lost it, there were extremely loud snores coming from it.it was so hard to not laugh. 

We finally made it to my room and we said goodnight. i stripped off my clothes and crawled under the blankets. Thinking about my new friend who I coundn't wait to see again.
