Princess Angelina Discovers a Star | Chapter – 12 Food

“Mr...” Angelina started.

“Mr. Eds,” the postman finished.

“Thank you, Mr. Eds,” Emily said.

“You’re welcome, girls!” Mr. Eds said.

After getting into the Escape pod:

“Wait, Europa,” Emily said.

“It says in this book that intergalactic yellow tea tastes wonderlicious with a bit mars-mist,” Emily said.

“Okay, Now while going we can get some mist from the Valles Marineris,” Angelina said.

“Got it,” Emily said.

“Check it out this is the cover of the book,” Angelina showed.

“Europa, can you please holoproject a white in color mug,” Emily requested.

Europa holoprojected a mug.

“Here is a marker, Em!” Angelina said giving Emily a marker.

Emily wrote and baked it for 30 minutes.

“How does this look?” Emily asked chewing her nails nervously.

“I love it,” Angelina said.

“Okay, why exactly did you choose Dimondus?” Emily asked.

“We could do something Aunt Jessie loved to do back in earth,” Angelina reminded.

“Diamond mining!” Emily asked so surprised that she almost fainted.

“Here we don’t go underground. We Diamond Tunnel and Aunt Jessie can find one type of diamond she has been missing in her collection,” Angelina chuckled.

“Black diamonds!?!” Emily said.

“Yep,” Angelina said, “Europa! Set a course to Dimondus please, after collecting some mist from Valles Marineris”.

“Got it,” Europa said.

“Okay, now time to pick the p-perfect meal for breakfast,” Emily said leafing through the pages of the book.

The book only had a title of the dish and the rest of the page was blank.

“Hey! The pages are blank,” Emily exclaimed.

“You have to click the page and a hologram appears,” Angelina said.

“Mom likes porridge right?” Emily asked.

“Yes,” Angelina said looking from the corner of her eyes.

“Then we’ll make marbled fruit porridge with a little bit of star milk,” Emily shouted.

“And star dust to give it a sweet taste,” Angelina smiled.

“Star milk is glittery, isn’t it?” Emily asked.

“Yes it is,” Angelina said confirming with her hologramix.

· 50g porridge oats

· 350ml semi-skimmed milk (If you have star milk you can use it, semi skimmed milk is just a substitute)

· 1 tbsp. fruit compote or puree (Not everyone can go to mars).

· Fresh seasonal fruit to serve like blueberries and raspberries.

HOW TO MAKE IT (If you’re a kid ask an adult to help)
1. Place the oats and milk in a small saucepan and bring to the boil.

2. Simmer for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Stir through the fruit puree to create a marbled effect.

4. Top with fresh fruit to serve.

BTW It tastes awesome.

“We have reached planet Dimondus,” Europa said.

“Thank you,” Emily said.

“Okay time to dig up a tunnel,” Angelina said.

“Nope, my hologramix says hologramixes can shrink into a tiny box and make a huge tunnel,” Emily said.

“Okay then I’ll do it,” Angelina said taking off her hologramix and it shrank and shrank and shrank and shrank and shrank and shrank and shrank and shrank and shrank and shrank and shrank and shrank and shrank. Until it got small enough Angelina placed it on the ground and BOOM! A tunnel was formed.

“Let’s check it out tomorrow,” Angelina said.

After getting in:

“We can make a smoothie,” Emily said.

“Porridge smoothie,” Angelina corrected.

“With star milk and of course satberries,” Emily shrieked excitedly.


· 50g porridge oats

· 350ml semi-skimmed milk (Also a substitute for star milk)

· 1 tbsp. fruit compote or puree

· Fresh seasonal fruit to serve

1. Place the oats and milk in a small saucepan and bring to the boil.

2. Simmer for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Stir through the fruit puree to create a marbled effect.

4. Top with fresh fruit to serve

“Yep,” Angelina laughed.

“Europa, does Ariel give us original star dust and star milk?” Angelina asked.

“No, Angelina! There will be extra sweetness,” Europa said.

“Then take us to the nearest star and collect star dust and star milk,” Emily said.

“Yes, Emily,” said Europa.

“Okay, we can give mom this globe of navigation,” Emily said.

“Yep, looks good,” Angelina said.

“Mission Accomplished, girls,” Europa said.

“Set a course to home, Europa,” Angelina said.

Once they reached home they made a hologram projector for Emily to give to Jessie.

“What holoprojector are you giving mom?” Emily asked.

“A pdf of Francesca the girl in France,” Angelina said.

“Good Idea,” Emily said, “When are we making it?”

“Now!” Angelina said.

They worked the whole night and this was their final result:

“It’s morning kids!” Kathy said.

“Mom, we are going to make breakfast for aunty. You can wrap our presents,” Angelina said.

“Okay children,” Kathy said.

The children ran out and made breakfast and came back into Jessie’s room.

Princess Angelina Discovers a Star | Chapter – 11 Mission Accomplished

“Captain! When should we pour the oil?” Barry asked.

“In 3, 2, 1, Pour the oil,” Kathy commanded.

As they poured the oil a sparnacle shook and went off.

“Mission accomplished,” Joe said.

“Everybody the mission is done,” Captain Ariel said.

“Yay,” Shouted the children.

“Barry! Joe!! report to the great hall right now, we have to talk to Leo,” Captain Ariel ordered.

“So, how did it go?” Leo asked.

“Mission Accomplished Captain,” Captain Ariel said.

“How did you do it?” Leo asked in awe.

“Captain! we found out that oil irritates sparnacles so we added some more oil and it worked,” Joe said.

“Tell me exactly how much you used,” Leo said.

“What are the decimals of pi again, Emily?” Barry asked.

“3.1415926,” Emily said.

“Yes, we used 3.1415926 liters of oil,” Angelina said.

“See that board over there, that will record the number of missions you have accomplished,” Leo said.

“Thank you Ariels,” Said Leo.

“Over the galaxy and out of the galaxy!!!” they said in unison.

“Yeah, Mom! What do you want for your birthday?” Emile asked.

“A good breakfast in bed could help!” Jessie said.

“Ingredients please,” Emily said opening a word document in her hologramix.

“A spot of tea and anything else that comes to your mind would be good,” Jessie said.

“Jessie! I recommend you to try interstellar yellow tea,” Ariel said.

“Well, then interstellar yellow tea it is!” Jessie said smiling.

“Aunty! we can have a picnic if you want,” Angelina said.

“Yes, Angelina!” Jessie said.

“I will arrange a picnic at planet Dimondus,” Angelina said.

“Thank you, Angelina!” Jessie said.

“You’re Welcome, Aunty!” Angelina said.

“Mom permission to...” Angelina started.

“Permission granted, but you have to take Emily with you,” Captain Ariel said.

“Thank you, mother!” Angelina said.

“You’re Welcome!” Kathy said.

“Good night, everyone!!” said the girls in unison.

“I and Emily are going to do some late night research,” Angelina said.

“Buenos noches chicos!” the girls laughed.

“What does that even mean?” Emile asked.

“It means, Good Night Boys!” Angelina said.

Angelina and Emily got to their room.

“Okay, How about this?” Angelina asked Emily.

“Galactic Cookbook…” Emily read, “Hmm… Okay let’s purchase it”.

“But how?” Angelina asked.

“By asking dad and uncle, of course,” Emily said.

“Europa! Can you please send us a picture of the map to Barry’s and Joe’s room, please?” Angelina said.

“The map must have reached you by now, Angelina,” Europa said.

“Time to go ask dad,” Emily said.

Once they reached the bedroom door they started thinking that they shouldn’t have come here in the first place but then this happened:

“What a wonderful idea!” Barry said.

“Yes, a great idea but how much does it cost?” Joe asked.

“$ 10!!” the girls said.

“Ordered it!” Barry said.

“Take the escape pod of your room,” Joe said.

“To Mars? We know! We know!!” Emily said.

“Careful!” Barry said.

“And we’ve got this!” Joe assured.

“Buh-bye,” Angelina said, pulling Emily’s hand.

“Europa! Transform to escape pod,” Emily said.

“To Mars!” Angelina said.

“We have three books – ‘The Navigating Guide’, ‘Interstellar and Intergalactic’, ‘The Guardian of the Sword of Light,” Emily said.

“I’ll go with ‘Interstellar and Intergalactic’,” Angelina said, “I got the perfect DIY gift you can give her. See!” showing her this picture.

Princess Angelina Discovers a Star | Chapter – 10 Accepted

“Mission accepted, captain!” Captain Ariel said.

“Please do tell us the way you got rid of it because at this time of year the sparnacles are wild and crazy and are stuck to every single spaceship in the Milky Way galaxy,” The alien said.

“And I am Leo Metis,” said the Metis.

“This is to test if you’re ready,” said Leo.

“Captain Ariel! the universe depends on you,” said Leo.

“Over the galaxy and out of the galaxy,” said Leo.

“Things are strange out here,” said Emily.

“We’ll get used to it,” Joe said.

“I wanted to give this to you as a gift on the first day of intergalactic school but here…,” said Kathy giving them a ring.

“Mom! thank you, but me and Emily don’t like jewelry so very much,” Angelina said.

“It’s just not a regular ring, it has all the characteristics of an iPhone and a laptop,” Jessie said.

“Ways to get rid of sparnacles,” Emily searched and a hologram appeared.

Emily started, “This thing is …,” but was interrupted.

“Very Fragile!” Joe said.

“Okay, we have one source, it says Emma and the Sparnacles, it seems to be a story,” Emily read.

“I am in the mood for some pie and smoothies, anybody want some?” Emile asked.

“I do,” Adrian said.

“You guys continue the discussion. I’ll go ask Ariel to make us some pie and smoothie,” Emile said.

“Emile! You’re a genius!!,” Angelina shouted out loud.

“I am?! I am!” he said confidently.

“Decimals of Pi,” Angelina searched in her hologramix.

“3.1415926,” Angelina shouted out loud.

“Mom! we need 3.1415926 liters of oil,” Angelina said.

“Why?” Barry asked.

“When Emily searched for a cure it said that oil irritates sparnacles, so…,” Angelina paused.

“A lot of oil could shoo them off,” Emily finished.

“Right,” Angelina said.

“Ariel! can you please give us 3.1415926 liters of oil,” Jessie asked.

“Affirmative, Jessie!” said Ariel.

“Jessie! you asked for 3.1415926 liters of oil right? Here they are!” Ariel called up.

“Okay, Barry and Joe! you are going to spacewalk up to the top of the Royalinan and pour the oil. It’s as simple as that”.

“Agreed!” Barry said.

“Agreed!!,” Joe said.

“Ariels! time to do this,” Captain Ariel said.

Princess Angelina Discovers a Star | Chapter – 9 In the bags

In the bags were a book about the subject Cordeliamoon (The subject about the moons of Uranus), a book about Diemosoon (The subject about the moons of mars), a book about Nasoon (The subject about the moons of Neptune), Metismoon (The subject about the moons of Jupiter), Pandaroon (The subject about the moons of Saturn) and the rest of the subjects (believe me it’s a very long list) and also the time table and also really fancy equipment. And just to let you know, this is all for Angelina and Emily.

“What about us?” Adrian asked.

“We’ll go tomorrow,” Jessie said.

“Hey, look who’s good and happy now,” Kathy said.

“Yeah, mom you’re very brave,” Emily said.

Later that day:

“Good night,” Emily said.

“Em, you can’t just say good night when it’s a bad night”.

“What do you mean?” Emily asked frightened.

“Wake up and see”.

“What are these?”.

“Europa, please do a scan and tell us about these strange creatures,” Angelina said.

“These are known as sparnacles, Angelina,” Europa answered.

“What exactly are sparnacles, Europa,” Emily said.

“They are just like barnacles but are in space,” Europa said.

An alarm went off.

“That is the sparnacles alarm,” Europa said, “You better report to the meeting room”.

“Okay, what are these crazy creatures?” Adrian asked.

“Which is the research team?” Kathy said.

“Us,” The girls stepped up.

“Tell us what these creatures are right now, captain’s order!” Kathy said.

“Yes, mom,” Angelina.

“These are sparnacles. These are equivalent to barnacles but are in space,” Emily said.

The big screen sparked and got on.

“Captain Ariel! this will be your first mission, clear the sparnacles,” said an alien.

Princess Angelina Discovers a Star | Chapter – 8 The big day

“Okay, the big day has arrived, time to say goodbye to the earth,” Adrian said.

“She never grows up,” Kathy mused under her breath.

Jessie couldn’t help herself. She had to cry.

“Your daughter out there is packing up for school and you are crying!!!,” Kathy tried to console Jessie.

Antonio was crying just because his noble service was going to be over.

“Well, you just got over it and now Antonio and mom are crying,” Emily laughed.

They laughed together.

Antonio brought the documents which needed to be signed. One for King Barry, one for King Joe and one for each that they agreed to give up their royalty. Signed now. There was nothing other than the blast off that can get into their way.

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Blastoff.

Jessie cried and cried and cried and cried and cried and cried and cried and cried and cried and cried and cried and cried and cried and cried and cried.

“Okay dad, where do we go first?” Emily asked.

“To planet Theriria, that is where you get your equipment for school,” Joe said.

“Okay, everyone! gather ‘round. I will tell you what is everyone’s job,” Joe announced.

“Barry! you’re on piloting and I am on mechanic, Jessie! you are on navigating duty and Kathy! you’re on captain’s duty, Emily and Angelina! you’re on information duty and lastly Adrian and Emile! you are on emergency duty,” Joe acknowledged.

“Okay, guys! tell me whatever you want and I will order it,” Barry said.

“Tissues, I put them all in the bin after wiping off my tears,” Jessie said.

“Lunch,” Emile said.

“And everyone! I forgot to tell you about Ariel, she is a common assistant she just gives us lunch in an order and also Ariel is our new last name. Technology is a lot more advance in space,” Joe said.

“So we just ask Ariel for lunch,” Adrian asked.

“Yes, Adrian. Do you want your lunch now?” Ariel said.

“Nope,” Adrian said.

“Okay, we’ve arrived at Theriria,” Barry said.

“Great!” Angelina said.

They went onto the planet with their space suits on.

“Excuse me! we are from Tristan Intergalactic School. Can you please give us the equipment for 2 girls of 5th grade?”

“Yep, Tristan Intergalactic School! and here is the map for the school,” The shopkeeper said while giving us 2 bags.

Princess Angelina Discovers a Star | Chapter – 7 Crying!?!

“We better start packing. If we don’t we will have to leave a lot of things behind,” Angelina said.

“Yep,” Emily said.

“Your cupboards are being carried by Antonio and a few other soldiers right now girls,” Europa alerted.

“Is it?!,” Emily asked surprised.

“Uh-huh,” Europa said, “You can pack a few essentials that everyone needs when they live in the Royalinan spaceship”.

“The Royalinan ship!?!,” they asked flabbergasted.

Quick introduction about the Royalinan:
The Royalinan has been launched once and is just like the Titanic and has just about everything even breathable air and gravity but it has only 2 models and one of them has been launched. It has a family inside it right now.

“And for your intergalactic school, we have to wait for it……… Tristan intergalactic school”.

“Tristan intergalactic school!?!,” The girls almost fainted by now.

Another brief introduction to Tristan intergalactic school:
Tristan intergalactic school is the best intergalactic school in the Milky Way galaxy and it would cost a fortune for just about anyone to get in and you have to pass through an extremely hard exam to get in.
“Europa! browse the history of Tristan intergalactic school and find out if Princess Lia is studying there,” Angelina said.

“That’s crazy Angelina! such an astro-forward princess wouldn’t even be in the,” Emily was interrupted.
“Princess Lia Peter Whitefield is residing in Royalinan too”.

By now the girls fainted.

They woke up finding themselves face to face with the clock. It was 8:00 pm already!!!

Europa had had everything packed up. There was only a tiny space left. Later on they went to see the spaceship and put their suitcases in the spaceship.

Princess Angelina Discovers a Star | Chapter – 6 Noooooooooooooooooo

The ground sank 10 foot down below and Joe said, “Everyone since we went to space I thought we could live there, so from now on we will live in space and we are going tomorrow. This place is a model of the spaceship we are going to live in and start packing up and getting ready for living a life time.”

“The place is big…… I like it,” Adrian said.

“Yeah, but what about our kingdoms, Joe?” Barry said.

“It will not be our kingdom if Frindburg and Enchantigo will be part of Verina,” Joe replied.

“We’re okay with it,” The queens said.

“Well, I guess,” Barry said.

“Okay, we’re listening,” said the girls.

“I love the earth,” Angelina said.

“You’ll love space even more,” Jessie said.

“What are the Verinian King and Queen do with this place,” Angelina asked.

“Knock it down,” Kathy said.

“Nooooooooooooooo,” Angelina got stressed out.

“Yessssssssssssssssssssss,” Emily finally agreed.

Emily took Angelina to their room in the model spaceship.

“Angelina, we have our own personal assistant, her name is Europa,” Emily said.

“Why did you say okay?” Angelina mused.

“We can continue our research in outer space and that is for the whole of our life,” Emily shrieked.

“You’re right,” Angelina said brightening up.

“Mom and aunt’s personal assistant’s name is Phoebe and Dad’s and Uncle’s personal assistant’s name is Deimos and the boys’ assistant’s name is Titan,” Emily said.

“Hey, aren’t those all names of moons?” Angelina asked.

“Yes, your majesty! Our names are kept according to planet where our metal was found,” Europa said.

“Europa! Please call us by our names. That’s how we will be addressed after giving up our royalty,” Emily said.

After going to Joe, Angelina said, “Okay, Uncle Joe! I will come to outer space”.

“Great, tomorrow meet me here at 8:00,” Joe said.
