Michal was sitting on her sofa and nearly jumped out of her skin. She was too scared to say anything.
"The king has sent us to get David.
He is not sick." The captain yelled as his men trudged into Michal's bedroom. Throwing back the sheets, they discovered that David was not there.
"Where is he?" The captain yelled at Michal.
"I don't know."
When she refused to answer their questions, they took her to her father.
"Where is he?" Her father demanded.
Michal was a very intelligent young lady. She knew how to get to her father's heart. She started crying. "Oh, Daddy. I was so scared. If only you had been there. You could have helped. I'm never afraid when you are there. I was just so scaaaarrreed."
"Oh, my poor baby. What did he do to you.? I will have him killed if he hurt you."
"Oh no. He didn't hurt me. He just scared me. I helped him escape because I was afraid of what he would do."
"Well, let me know if he contacts you again."
"Oh, yes. I certainly will." Michal said on her way out of the room, knowing fully well that she would not betray the man she loved.
