Changing the subject, what did the King say? Her voice trembled as she spoke.
A child sacrifice is unconscionable to me. Many Knights died fighting that dragon. I can see you dead before you even get to the lair. Princess Adele climbed into bed. She stifled a yawn then said "Goodnight, my dear friend. I hope you sleep well,". Miranda blew out the wick of the oil lamp and said, "Goodnight, Adele. I know what she's going to do, and as soon as her death is confirmed, I'll console the King. I'm in a fantastic position now to put our plan into action. I will be Queen of Valdoria! She smiled as she blew out the light and settled into her bed.
The door to Miranda's room opened and closed without making a sound. She heard footsteps padding across the room. She walked down the aisle to her beloved, Anthony. When she got close enough to take his hand, she slid backward, having to begin the journey down the aisle all over again.
Adele experienced the same nightmare about her Anthony when she fell into a deep sleep. Tossing and turning, Princess Adele unable to sleep any longer, sat up in the bed. In the blackness of her room, she reached a decision. I know what I must do. Without stars, the night sky displayed no brightness, only blackness as pitch.
Her secrets remained her own. Her adventures out of the castle before the sun came up, on many occasions, was known only to her. This adventure would be no different.

Adele's impressive capabilities were known only to Robert. Her father wanted her skills kept a secret for the purpose of a surprise if she needed it.
If something happened to her brother, Adele could run the kingdom. If her quest failed, she would no longer be alive, and her brother would be alone. He would be the only one of the family left. Her parents, the King, and Queen died the previous year from the plague.
She and her brother left the area until the crisis passed. They returned home having no parents and the country, no King and Queen. Her nineteen-year-old brother became King and Lord Ashmore guided the new King in all decisions. They relied on Lord Ashmore as their father did, over the years. In an inconspicuous manner, Adele walked down the long castle hallway to the secret exit that took her underground, straightway to the stables.
She thought once again of her father and how he made sure she knew the secret entrance location. He told her no one knew about it except her, but if the need arose she could share it with her brother. So far, it remained her secret way out of the castle. She lit a torch before entering the tunnel. She didn't like the darkness of the tunnel.

The dampness didn't bother her at all, and it felt refreshing when the outside temperature got high. The trap door opening in the stable storage room remained well hidden. She checked it every evening, so it remained unobstructed. At the bottom of the ladder, she pulled her sword from its storage area. She carried it as she climbed the ladder to the storage room.
After covering the floor with the rug to hide the entry, she made her way to Champion's stall. Are you ready for a ride? She put the mufflers on Champion's hooves so he wouldn't make any noise walking across the stones.

Adele waited for the guards to walk to the other side of the parapet so she could escape the castle grounds unseen. She didn't wait long. When she felt it safe, she carefully walked Champion out the gate to the open field. Once on his back, she gave the horse his head and let him run across the field to the timber edge.
