The king has lots of concubine, which are less important to him, since
he is imprudent. The crowd of people waited anxiously, as the king
arrived lately and immediately ascend to his throne, but some part of
the crowd, never welcomed him after waiting for long, some
murmured our king is a cad and exactly looks caddy in nature, this
made them guffaw, at least they now feel better.
The palace was in a brawl of noise, just like a congested market, with
lots of people buying, selling, talking and shouting at the same time,
but went mute as soon as the king rise to speak. He spoke
imperiously, in his words, my people; the custom of our land has
changed. I feel arsey, since I have no conscience and the gods of our
land acknowledge it. Anyone who fall prey would be chastised by the
priest and possibly sold to slavery.
The people listened, but find it bitter to swallow. Soon, the priest
beckoned on the king, who gave him a nod. The priest jangled his two
