Shirley walked out from behind a small shack. Her large frame barely concealed her from the guards and the chamberlain when they passed by her. She shook her head.
If she went back to the palace now and told King Michael what happened, he might not believe her. She definitely didn’t want to go back to prison again. A quick search of the castle would reveal that she was right but she worried that King Michael wouldn’t believe the part about the chamberlain’s betrayal. She still might be imprisoned for that accusation.
She just decided to head back to the castle when she heard a woman’s voice. “Hey Shirley, are you ok?”
“Willamena?” asked Shirley. She looked up and saw her sister.
“Will you please call me Captain Will? I hate Willamena.”
“I’m sorry, I forgot,” Shirley replied. “What are you doing here?”
“Penelope and I were supposed to rescue her sister. We made a deal. She rescues you then I rescue Lulu,” replied Captain Will.
“What are you going to do now?” Shirley asked.
“I’m going after her. Even if there wasn’t a price on her head, I still need my cook even though she insists she’s a baker,” replied Captain Will.
“I’m coming with you,” said Shirley.
Captain Will smiled then said, “The boys caught some tuna last night.”
Shirley sighed. “Okay, I’ll make you guys Poke. I know it’s your favorite. I’ll be your cook for now.”
Captain Will hugged her sister. “We better hurry then. I’ll let the boys know what happened so they’ll be ready.”
