⚙️⚙️⚙️PRE-ORDER!!!!!!⚙️⚙️⚙️ What would Clock City be without our heroes! Meet Alayna and Sebastian!
I saw he was about my age, not old as I had thought. “What is your name?”
“Sebastian,” he answered, still looking down at the ground.
“What do you do, Sebastian?” I asked, then stumbled over the words, “I mean, in your free time.” I felt myself blushing even harder.
His head shot up and I briefly saw the confusion in his face, before he looked down again. “Your majesty, I don’t understand?”
He voice was light, and a little comical. I felt like he was ridiculing me for a minute, then Dinga interrupted. “She wants to know about those things on your head.” I knew I was blushing a bit.
Sebastian finally met my gaze. His eyes were indeed a deep chocolate, very smooth and sweet. He smiled, revealing a layer of straight, white teeth. He reached up and pulled the goggles down over his eyes, and I was a little dismayed he hid his eyes from me. He bowed deeply, and curtsied with his hand swaying in front of him. “Your majesty, I am Sebastian Cross. Inventor extraordinaire.”
“And what sort of things do you invent?”
“Many things. Electronic horses, I’m sure you saw some on the way in. And also, a steam horse, that has wheels instead of legs.”
I opened my mouth to say something, but he interrupted. “Would you like to see?”
“Your majesty,” the knight behind me said quietly, but the urgency in his voice was unmistakable. “We must get you to the palace.” Dinga was hopping up and down again. “Yes, my Queen, we must see such amazing things!”
I bit my lip. I wanted to know more about this beautiful boy with the big brown eyes. But I had to get to the palace first. I had to figure out what was going on.
