My eyes widen as I saw Rui waving his hand towards me. Then, he walks ahead on my way. He stands in front of me before handed his hand for a handshake. I was about to shake it but he take it away, laughing "it is true then. Our cold prince suddenly change into a manner prince" he chuckled before slightly punch me on my stomach.
I was about to groaned but I stopped as I don't felt anything at all. I look on my stomach as I remember back that I have rocks now. "For your reminder, you never shook my hand before so don't do it suddenly now. It is weird, you know?" Rui said before take the cupcake that I hold and put it inside his mouth.
"Are you mad now?" he said giggling as I look at him confused. 'What kind of person Joshua is? Why did this guy keep trying to make him mad by doing something so small?' I take a deep breath before trying to act like Joshua supposed to "stop it can't you? That's annoying" once again my mouth acts on its own. Rui look at me surprised before hug me tightly "that's my best friend" he said before letting me go as we heard someone called my name. I turn my head and saw a very beautiful lady bowed down before looking up.
She then stare at my face before continue "you are exactly as I expect since you are the most handsome prince in this kingdom" this lady have a blonde long hair with a very fancy looking dress. She is probably a princess if I have to guess.
"Princess Sofia, I will be very thankful if you don't really make my best friend uncomfortable. If you don't know, Prince Joshua really hates it when someone keeps complimenting him" Rui said with polite smile as Princess Sofia nods her head "yeah I know. Anyways, why did you two here? Weren't you supposed be with your ideal girl and wait for the music to play?" Rui chuckled before answering "we not yet ready for those oldies cultural. We doesn't really need to get marry so early" Rui said looking at me for a sec before turning his head towards Sofia.
"What about you, Sofia? Weren't you supposed to be with your future fiancée?" Sofia look at me before answering "Joshua is my fiancé" Rui look at me surprised "what the heck?!" as my mind trying to process everything, I suddenly jumped out of surprised by what Sofia just said. 'What the heck?!' I look at Rui and Sofia confused "what do you mean by that? As I remember, I didn't engaged to anyone yet" Sofia giggled before answering "soon enough you are mine" she said before come to my side and put my arm around her waist.
"You're my pick for my future husband" my eyes widen more than before. 'What is going on right now?' Before I even manage to slip away, Rui grab my other hand before pulling me towards him "Sofia, sorry to say this but me and Joshua need to do something" he immediately drag me away from Sofia and went outside. "Phew! Luckily we manage to escape from her. Hey" Rui suddenly turn to me "why don't you show me how to make fire again. I forget what you teach me the other day" I froze at my position. 'Fire? Magic?' Rui look at me confused. "Don't be so stinky. Please~" I nod without thinking much and without I realize, we already at the field which I guess this is the practice field.
.....brain...... tells me how to make magic... wait! 'Brother! See how I done this? This is the way Prince Joshua make his power activated. He did it like this and then this. Then, fire immediately shows up on his palm. If he wanna bigger fire, he just rub both his hand and the fire become twice more big than before" I close my eyes to get a better vision before done what my sister once told me. She also told me that I need to imagine it. How big I want and how I wanna my fire look like.
"Wow! Joshua, you done it" I opened my eyes and saw a football size ball floating on my hand and... It actually has ball design on it. "Joshua, your fire ball... kind of look weird" I scratch my neck as I'm getting embarrassed by what I done "But its look cool, I mean it!" Rui said showing his both thumb towards me. "You think so? Thanks I guess" Rui smiles before plop down on the grass "I changed my plan. I don't wanna try hard for magic. I don't care if I failed the test. As long my friend, achieve it and no one will ever surpass you. Everyone else has only 1 or 2 powers but you have everything. You have fire, water, and earth, wind and white light which can be used to heal" he scoffed before looking at me.
"Not only that, you are good looking and have a strong figure while I was nothing at all" I look at Rui "Nah, You not that bad. You are cool and great friend, the greatest friend that I have. What am I without your support?" Rui smile "you are really different but I like this change. Let be friends forever" I look at Rui smile... is this great feelings of having friend? In my past life, I never have anyone to rely on except my sister who was 5 years younger than me. Yumi, what are you doing now?
"Joshua" I turn as someone suddenly calls my name and saw a middle aged man standing behind me with 5 guards behind him. Rui immediately bowed "good morning your highness" is that means he is my father? He looks scary..... "Why didn't you go inside and look for your future wife?" he asked staring at me with stern glare. "I-im sorry. No one actually caught my eyes. Sorry" he sighed before putting his hand on my shoulder "you will take over the throne when I'm gone so I really want you to think about your future. Stop refusing everyone you sees" I just nod before he continues "for now, keep practicing your powers. Make sure you pass the exam or you won't take over the throne" he said and leaves.
Rui put his hand on my shoulder before whisper "let's continue practicing. I be your training partner and don't take what your father so deeply. He just always been that mean like you" he laughed making me felt loose a little bit. I know that I am not actually Joshua but I felt like I am. Maybe Joshua feeling is still inside this body.....who knows. I don't even know how long I am going to be Joshua. Is it forever or just a temporary but I will try my best to take all these responsibility? That's my promised. I am not anymore a loser, Makumi but I am Joshua Stuart. The prince of Magic Kingdom!
