Daisy: A Princess, Missing (11) -- FINAL(Daisy's PoV)
Daisy felt sick. Like she was going to faint.
She didn't faint.
She wished she would.
Her dad looked at her, pretending to be concerned. He walked over to her and put a hand on her shoulder. "Daisy, darling, are you alright?"
"No, I'm not alright! And don't touch me!" Daisy shrieked. The king stepped back, shocked. "How dare you! How dare you pretend to care about me, even after I find out that you're working with Drekkel!"
Her dad just stood there, shocked. " 'Working with Drekkel'? Daisy, how could you think-" Suddenly, he turned and looked at Drekkel, then started laughing. "Oh, I forgot you didn't know! He's a pretty good actor, isn't he?"
Daisy stared at him, confused. "What are you talking about?"
Suddenly, all of the chains disappeared. Drekkel stepped in front of everyone, smiled, and suddenly, he wasn't Drekkel at all. The robe, the mustache, the beard...he was Merlon.
Daisy could only stare at him, unable to speak. Merlon laughed. "Are you surprised?"

"Really, guys, think about it," Daisy said. "If we go back to the castle now, it would give Drekkel a chance to notice that we've escaped. We need to just act now."
"But we're unprepared," Luigi pointed out. "Like the king said earlier, we need more guards." Luigi was clearly terrified. Daisy felt kind of bad for him, although she knew that going back to the castle was a bad idea.
Daisy shook her head. "No. We need to act now. If Drekkel were to catch us again..." Memories of being tortured by Drekkel flashed through her head. Daisy shuddered. "Look, guys, I really don't want to go back to being Drekkel's prisoner. It was horrible. Our best bet is to just go. Now."
Daisy's dad nodded. "I have to agree with Daisy. Come on. Let's go. Daisy..." he sighed. "Daisy, I was hoping that you wouldn't have to be here, in the midst of danger. But, at the same time, I think that you will be extremely helpful. Now, Merlon, what time is it?"
Merlon pulled a pocket watch out of his cloak
Daisy: A Princess, Missing (9)(Luigi's PoV)
Luigi looked around the cave carefully. He knew that his job was at stake. Maybe if I think of an amazing plan, the king will be so impressed that he'll reward me by firing William. Luigi knew that it wasn't likely, but he could still dream.
Luigi carefully studied his surroundings, but he only saw cave walls and a wooden door.
"Ugh..." Luigi groaned as he collapsed against the cave wall. "We're never getting out of here" He then looked up and saw the look on Daisy's face, and instantly regretted what he said.
"Do you really think that?" Daisy whispered.
"No," the king assured her, sneaking Luigi a dirty look. "We will get out of here. Don't listen to Luigi. There's a chance he won;t even be working for me for long."
"No!" Luigi screamed, jumping up. "No! Please!"
"You keep messing up!" the king shouted. "You keep begging me not to fire you, then you just keep messing up!"
"That's not entirely true. Luigi has actually only messed up once since you threatened to fire him f

"Oh, really?" William challenged. "You know for a fact that whatever your silly, prissy, girly brain could possibly think of will work to do…whatever we're going to do with Drekkel?"
Daisy's dad shot William a look. "Watch it, William," he said warningly. "Daisy, what's your idea?"
Daisy smiled. "Okay, well, I know for a fact that Drekkel goes to bed at 11:30, so you should do this at midnight."
Luigi nodded. "Helpful. What else?"
"Well, I also know of three different types of orbs that he uses: the Thunder Balls, which we all know what they do, the pink ones, which make you fall asleep, and the yellow ones, which make you unable to move," Daisy explained. "So watch out for them. And those are only the ones I know about. He could very easily have more."
William also nodded. "Alright, alright, we get it. He's dangerous. Now, what's your plan?"
Daisy laughed. "Calm down. I'm getting there."
William sighed impatiently. "Fine. Hurry up."
Daisy smiled again. "So, in my m
