The Runaways

Chapter 1- Annoyance at Dinner

I fixed my tiara in place on my head and sighed. My mother watched me slide my food around on my plate with a fork. We had company over. i glanced over at her. She looked like she was about to whoop my butt. I sat up straight, plastered a smile on my face, and folded my hands on my lap. She smiled at me. Gosh, I hated being a princess. It was pure evil! Torture, I should say. My mother was the queen, my father was the king, I was the princess and my, little brother Takashi was the prince, young prince. I mean he was only eight. I was supposed to act like an adult but I was only sixteen like what the heck!? Mrs. Richardson, my parents' good friend, smiled at me.

"How are you dear?"

"Very well, thank you. How about yourself?" I politely asked.

"Great. Thank you, princess." She bowed her head lightly.

Just then, Maid Harumi, walked in with dessert. There was cheesecake, lemon pudding, brownies bites, fruit cake, cream puffs, mousse, and many other yummy desserts. My eyes lit up. I loved cheesecake. Especially with strawberries on top! Takashi dug right into the mousse. I couldn't help but laugh.

Grr! My dress was acting up again. It was so itchy and too tight around the waist. I was itching really hard. My mother looked at me and mouthed the word 'stop'. I sighed. Maid Harumi placed a big piece of cheesecake on my plate. She knew me well.

"Thank you." I said taking a bit.

She smiled at me, then continued serving. Oh crap, Airashii was probably starving. Airashii was my pet polar bear. Nobody knew her, except me of course. My parents, along with Mrs. Richardson, excused themselves from the table. Great, I thought. Now was my chance to feed Airashii. I walked over to the food cart and spotted some cheese and grapes. I looked around to make sure no one was watching. Takashi was too busy stuffing his face his face with mousse to notice me. I picked some green grapes and a few pieces of cheddar cheese and placed them on my napkin. Then, I tiptoed upstairs to my room. I couldn't be too loud or then my mother would think I was rude for leaving when we had company over.

"Airashii?" I whispered, turning on my light.

Airashii walked out from under my bed and pawed my leg. he was happy to see me. I picked her up. She was fluffy and small.

"Hey,baby!" I said placing her on my bed. She sniffed my napkin.

I stroked her fur and laid open the napkin in front of her.

"Hungry?" I asked.

Airashii nibbled the cheese. I sat on my bed and watched her eat. It was good to see Air
