It’s said that singing and laughing lighten the soul; it’s a lie. I’ve heard singing and laughing that would damn the soul.
~ V. Shnodgrate, Renowned PL Poet
I tell you this plainly so that if you ever find yourself in such a position, you’re not fooled like I was.
It’s not a straight shot down the stairs to a door.
No, it’s more complicated.
This professor will spare you the boring details.
But here’s the thing: I hid in Prince Beef’s palace, running here, running there, for a full five hours before I found an exit.
And it was a window.
What made things goodly, was the fact that the prince had sent his guards out of the palace to search for me.
That’s why it makes complete sense as soon as I exited through that window (crashing to the ground) I was captured again.
“Hands in the air!” shouted one guard.
Another guard: “The prince said we could shoot him on sight.”
The other guard, rolling his eyes: “That’s if he resisted. Does he look to be resisting to you?”
That first guard studied me.
Now, here’s the thing: There were two guards. Two guards only.
So, the professor did a diversion technique.
I am skilled in those things, mind you.
“Look oh my!”
And I pointed behind them.
It didn’t work.
“He’s showing resistance!” the first guard screamed, leveling his rifle at me.
The second guard did, in fact, turn.
A shot rang out and I hit the ground.
Everything descended into darkness, then.
Last thing the professor heard: “Hehaha.”
