Part 4


“So you have no idea what you mine it for?”

“Not really, no. I just know it’s precious, else we wouldn’t all mine just that.”

“How about your father? You think Chuck would know something more about this?”

“No. We don’t ask questions. We trust in our king and do as he says. If he tells us to mine, we mine. Don’t you have the same system outside?”

James was surprised by his remark and needed to think for a second before answering so he wouldn’t blow his cover. “We do, yes, and it’s part of why we escaped and came here. We thought things are different. We thought there’s kings that don’t hide things from their people.”

“Well, you thought wrong. If we needed to know, the king would tell us. I’m certain of it.”

Seeing as he hit a wall with Jack, James shut up and decided to try something else after they finish eating. He wanted to talk to Jack’s mother, Sophie, about what she did all day when the men were away. Maybe she knew something that could potentially be of use. He specifically wanted to ask about how they get their food and what the market was like, so what people under the dome do besides mining.

If we needed to know, the king would tell us. I’m certain of it.

This is so sad, so many people think like that. I guess parents should teach their kids never their rulers the moment they start talking.

It is, indeed. :/ I think the most important thing we can all learn in our lives is to doubt everything. Including ourselves. Doubt is the backbone of growth.

Thanks! Getting banana-ed real soon! :P
