I sat on the couch with a bowl of buttered popcorn. It was the night of the school homecoming but I didn't feel like going, I had no place there. I put on a Romeo and Juliet, the one with Leonardo DiCaprio as Romeo. My dad comes and sits down next to me grabbing a handful of popcorn.
“You can still go you know.” He tells me I roll my eyes.
“I rather sit here and watch Juliet die twice.”
“Why don't you want to go, you can't let other kids bully you from having fun...”
“No one is bullying me, I just don't want to go to some stupid dance.” I exclaim, he shrugs and leaves me be. He's probably thinking ever since your mother died you haven't done any socializing. Kids at my school hate me and sure maybe if I wasn't a gutless fish I would go to homecoming but I don't see the point; its not like I'll meet my prince charming.
I would give both my arms to dance with my Romeo, as long as it meant we didn't both die of course. It would be about now that mom would come up behind me and scare me and then give me a nice big hug. I miss her so much...
“Vienna please come downstairs!” My father calls, I sigh and put my popcorn aside. I walk downstairs, it sounding like a heartbeat. As I reach the cold basement floor I see a boy on the ground asleep or knocked out.
“Uh dad who is that?” I say pointing at the black haired boy in a strange outfit.
“I don't know he just came out of the portal I've been fixing.”
“Wait you have a portal.”
“Well yes I am a scientist have to try something out of this world.”
“Well where did he come from, Legend of Zelda!?!” I exclaim. The boy starts to wake up, he raises his head his blue eyes shining at me. It made me uneasy in the least.
“Princess?” He says weakly scratching his head still staring at me.
“Dad?” I ask looking at him tapping my foot.
“Okay your from his world I’m sorry I didn't tell you.” He exclaims, my mouth drops.
“WHAT!!!” I yell.
“Well when you were a little baby I went through the portal and well the castle was being raided so I took you, I’m sorry.”
“Okay I’m going to bed, when I wake up tomorrow he will be gone and we'll never speak of it again.” I say marching up stairs.
“Vienna come back.”
“Why its not like your going to let me go to some far off land.”
“Actually its exactly what I’m doing.”
“But he's some stranger, you know like a random mysterious person.”
“Hate to interrupt but I’ve been told to retrieve you no matter what the circumstances.” The boy says.
“Wait how do we even know I’m the princess?”
“It's the only reason why he would be here.”
“Also a witch told me you were in a strange world, and this is very strange I mean look at your clothing.”
“Your the strange one here!”
“Son what's your name.”
“Demitri meet Vienna, your no longer strangers, now go. Your needed some where else.” My dad tells me, why is he acting like he doesn't care.
“But I can't just leave you.”
“Yes you can now go on and have a adventure, for me.” He tells me and I sigh. Demitri brushes of his green tunic looking more like Robin Hood.
“Don't worry I'll protect her.”
“You better, now off you two go.”
“Alright.” I finally say, Demitri grabs my hand as my dad turns on the portal. We go through it blinding me as my world went a deep black.
