The joker and the queen


A noble little prince ran down the halls of the Hover Castle as the maids and the usher tried to stop him from bringing the castle down. He pushed down trays, shattered the finest of tea cups, and spilt liquids on the floors that were just freshly mopped, he then bumped into the laundress who had just finished washing up the castle sheets, towels and tablecloths. The whole clean laundry fell to the ground where he had just spilt some liquid, trying to pick them up she stepped on a piece of glass and fell to the ground angry to the core. She wanted to spank the little prince but she remembered she was in no place to do so. So she gave him a little Pat on the nose.

”Naughty boy ” She said jamming her teeth together faking a smile. He saw his father coming so he ran towards him and his father; the king lifted him high up in the air reigning his little son with praises. He got him down and led him to his chamber. He read him his favourite poems of all time – Lamour interdit, which was in French meaning forbidden love. It was a tale as old time. Whenever it was read to him, hed start imagining. His imaginations ran wild. He was happy, he was content and most of all, he loved to love.

Ten years later he was all grown, 17 years of age. It was the third day before the Ides of March; March 13th, when a piece of tragic news struck the castle. The King fell very ill. The castles doctor was called in to diagnose the king but he couldn tell what could possibly be wrong with the king. Next was the castles chaplaincy. He was called to pray for the king but the king wasn getting any better, so he deemed the cause of the kings sickness as divine retribution for leading a sinful life.

No one had told the prince about his fathers illness. Whenever he asked about his father, the Constable; Tobias always told him that he was going to be absent for some length of time. He became worried about his father. Every time hed try to look into his fathers chamber to see what was actually going on but once the chambermaids sighted him, they shut the door locked. He had had enough of the household staff of the castle, so he went to confront the Constable.

”I demand to see my father Tobias! ” Micheal ordered. The Constable was shocked that the prince at such a young age dared to speak to him in such a manner.

”As I said, hes going to be away for some period of time ” Tobias replied sternly.

”I might be young but Im not stupid. Please Tobias, what has happened to my father? ” Micheal begged. His plea touched the Constables heart, so he let him into the kings chamber. Young prince Micheal was broken when he saw his father stricken down by the hands of death.

”Father, it is I ” Micheal proclaimed calmly as he sat by his fathers side

”Micheal….. ” The King whispered as he struggled to speak.

”Yes father….why didn you let them tell me about your illness. Im your son, I deserve to know ” Micheal demanded calmly.

”Micheal….. Do you remember…do you remember tha
