Prince Eric

 

I went to first desk I saw “is Russia Air still on board?”

 

“I’m sorry no, it took off seven minutes ago” she replied.

 

I took an involuntary step backward, she left, I was too late.

 

I left for the TV station and aired live on every channel in the world, including radio stations. I’m a prince so anything can be possible.

 

The cameraman nodded at me, motioning for me to start.

 

I cleared my throats and looked straight at the camera “I hope the Russian air can air, someone on the plane needs to hear what I’m about to say.”

 

“Daisy, I hope you can see or hear this where you are.”

 

 

The Aviation Computer room,

 

“You’re not going to believe this” A lady said with awed look to her colleague.

 

“What’s it?” Her colleague asked.

 

“It’s the prince, My prince Eric. Why does he look so sad though?”

 

“What?”

 

“Here, come have a look”

 

Her colleague peered into the computer, different thoughts running through her head. Isn’t he supposed to be wedding? What does he want to do? How can he be sad on his wedding day.

 

“He mentioned Russian air. It can’t be ours can it?” Her colleague asked.

 

“I don’t know but let’s connect every Russian air flying to the radio so whoever he’s trying to reach out to can hear” the lady said, tapping the keyboard with a lot of vigour, eager to do something for her long time crush even though she knows she might get into trouble with the higher-ups and her job is at stake.

 

 

She watched with a broad smile as the prince’s live voice is connected to every Russian plane flying.

 

She plugged her headphones to the computer, not wanting to miss a word of what her crush is about to say.

 

“Daisy, I hope you can see or hear this where you are.” She heard the prince say.

 

“Daisy is listening dear prince, say whatever you want to say.”

 

 

 

 

 

In the Russian Plane

 

 

 

Everyone looked around, wondering what was happening when they heard a buzz in the speakers before a voice finally burst to life.

 

“Daisy, I hope you can see or hear this where you are.”

 

Daisy’s head shot up from the window she rested her head when she heard the voice. She can recognize the voice even in her sleep. How come I’m hearing his voice? I can’t be hallucinating again can I?

 

“How do I even start?” Eric continued.

 

The murmurs in the plane quietened down.

 

Yeah, I know I said you’re someone I use to clear my head, that stops the voice, you’re a means of distraction to get a break from my head. That’s really true.”

 

Daisy’s heart shattered into more pieces, did the prince go online to mock me more?

 

“When you left, you took a huge part of me with you. Anytime I wake up, I look to my side, hoping to see you or skip down to kitchen praying to hear you hum as

 

 

you always do. Then I thought I could live with it, live without you, thinking that way, I won’t get emotionally attached to you. Guess I’ve been deceiving myself, I’ve been attached even before I realized.

 

She heard him take a deep shaky breath and she sat still, holding her breath, hanging on to every word he said.

 

I thought getting married will take you off my head but It’s not going to work, nothing is ever going to work without you. You’re my missing puzzle piece, the one that fills my void heart. You’re the reason I look forward to every single day. I want to wake up everyday to you in my arms, snoring quietly. I no longer what love is but if everything I mentioned means love, then I don’t want to let go but if it isn’t, please come back and let me learn to love you. My Daisy Flower, I love you” he added in a thick voice, filled with emotions.

 

The left the podium set for him and went back to the airport, hoping for a miracle, praying she forgives him and come back.

 

The crowd roared in cheers everywhere the prince live show was played.

 

Daisy’s face was wet and she didn’t even know until the person next to her said. “You must be the Daisy right? Give the prince a second chance”

 

“It’s too late, the plane is in air and I don’t even have enough money to pay for my ticket back home.”

 

“Don’t worry, when we land, I’ll buy you the next ticket home” the lady smiled.

 

Daisy nodded appreciatedly and suddenly, making Daisy want to cry more.

 

She felt it, the crowds too felt it because a collective gasp arose from the people on board. Those in the first class and business part of the plane smiled softly as the plane made a U turn.
