The foyer doors opened as I stepped up and stood in front of Alaric. Felix followed me to the front and stood with his chest pumped up, looking taller than usual.
We walked out together and saw the crowd that was gathered inside the courtyard of the castle. A stage was set up with a mic. I was not ready to speak to such a loud crowd.
It was deafening to hear the crowds cheer even from such lengths away from them. I knew it was big but not this big! There were many journalists and many crazy looking paparazzis that also stood in the front. I did not want to answer any of their questions but Alaric put me in this spot and I was bound to.
We walked onto the podium and looked over the crowd. This was bigger than the crowd in my kingdom… Alaric, what have you done to me?!
The crowd looked on and asked multiple questions all together, or just shouted out names or gibberish that I couldn understand. All of this noise is inaudible.
Suddenly I notice Amadeus in the corner of my eyes, just standing to my right hand side. He glanced at me and quickly averted his eyes back to the crowd. How long was he here for?
I bring the artifact closer and cough, calming down the crowd from their shouting. Time to announce the end.
