Michael kept well in touch with his work friends on earth and told them that he might be spending a few days in Pinky Planet, to get to know the place.
The next day, they went to see the king, as he had ordered them to.
“Why do you think he wants us?” asked Ocean.
“I’m not sure, maybe he just wants to know me better,” the human replied.
Everything was normal at first, the soldiers and servants all smiled politely whilst running from place to place. But when they knocked on the door no tired voice told them to come in and no wheezing coughs were to be heard.
“Should we go in? Maybe he doesn’t want us to disturb him,” asked Ocean, clearly uncertain.
“The king is expecting your arrival,” said a passing by servant and so they went in.
The room was topsy turvy , broken shelves, torn books, chairs lying on the ground. And most importantly, the king wasn’t there!
“Could he have been kidnapped? No… that’s impossible. Let’s get out of here,”suggested Michael. Ocean immediately agreed and so they hurriedly got out of the castle. They both secretly thought that something bad must have happened to him but they could not bring themselves to admit that.
