Macaroni goes to an oracle, feeling something is wrong. The oracle says an enemy will try to kill someone really close to her. She tells this to Queen Mozzarella , who tells her to stand guard extra closely. Despite that, she does not really believe her. She just wants her best friend to protect her, even though Macaroni always had an extrem loyalty to the queen. When they were younger, she (being much larger than Mozzarella ) woould protect Mozzarella from the harsh rock storms that hit the Cheese Kingdom once a month.
After Clay is imprisoned by the king, he warns King Gouda of an incoming assassination attempt. Gouda ignores him, thinking the MudWing is just being stupid. Sure enough, Queen Fire comes, lured by a rope and holding a blood-stained dagger in her talons. Luckily, Macaroni is able to knock the knife out of her hand and send Queen Fire back to the Bomb Kingdom. Queen Mozzarella is especially grateful for her best friend, who had always been there throughout her life.
Queen Mozzarella barely knows how to repay her, but then she realizes that she needs a second-in-command, and who could be better for a second-in-command then her best friend? So, she becomes her second-in-command.
