“Sir, we received another message.”

The commander warily asked, “Who from?”

“Ummm…Mi“cio, Sir.”

The commander sighed, “What does it say?”

“ ‘If you want your Queen back safely, you will assemble a

ransom of 4 million credits. Deliver it to this account:

497720245. All of the credits must be deposited before you get

the Queen back. You have three hours.’ “

“Let’s give this message to the Queens people. They’ll decide

what to do with it.” The commander said.

“Yes, Sir.” He forwarded the message.

the amount. You would think that you would demand much

teased.

“Yes.” He said, a smile breaking through. “We have what we

need to get you home now.”

“You mean you didn’t even have enough fuel before to return

me?” She was surprised.

“Afraid not. If they hadn’t agreed to our demands, you would

have been stranded her quite literally for some time. I’m sorry

for risking your life Highness, but it was a gamble we had to

take.”

“I understand. You will be returning me now?” she took a bite;

it tasted as good as it smelled.
