…All the King’s Men?
“Where are all of my men?” The King’s voice boomed like thunder, rolling across the great hall. The emptiness of the room became overwhelmingly apparent. Just then a small, anxious man approached the throne and knelt. He bowed his head, averting his gaze from the King’s disapproving eyes.
“We are all here your Majesty,” he squeaked.
“That’s impossible! There only be but four of you in this room, and one of them is the Queen!” The King’s displeasure hung thick in the air. “Where in God’s name is everyone?” He began to pace back and forth in front of his throne.
The man who still knelt, head bowed before the King, spoke once more. “Your Majesty, we are your court. Our knights are off training. You were only meant to meet with us today. Everyone is here as promised. I’m the Bishop, and with me I have your highest commanding knight, and the Rookie… *Hrumph*… I mean Rook.”
The King let out a long sigh and pinched the bridge of his nose. “I suppose this will have to do… Now, should we have camel or pony rides for my birthday–I can’t decide.”
