Lendra looked toward the city in front of her. She couldn’t believe her eyes, it was so huge! She shook her head in amazement. Growing up in a little mountain village, she had never seen anything like it. Neece stood beside her, smiling at her amazement. Lendra looked at Neece sideways.
“This is your hometown?”
A smile went over Neece’s face sort of sideways.
“Well, now it is. I stay here when I’m not on a mission.”
“And the King is here?”
“Oh, yes. The King is wherever you need Him to be.” Neece looked at Lendra. “You didn’t know that?”
Lendra shrugged. “Well, sort of. I feel like I don’t know very much about the King and the Prince.”
Smiling encouragingly, Neece patted Lendra on the back. “Well, you’ll learn. I’ll teach you as we are together.”
Lendra smiled. “Well then, what are we waiting for? Let’s go!”
They started down into the city together.
Soon they were surrounded by people, and Lendra was amazed at how Neece navigated the crowds. Eventually they came to a great building, and Lendra gaped in astonishment.
“This is a huge palace! Does the King live here?” Lendra asked breathlessly.
Neece smiled at Lendra’s exuberance. “Yes, He dwells here in our land. After we will go in, we will learn more of our quest.
Lendra smiled. “Well, what are we waiting for? Let’s go in!”
