Killing the Prince

This post was inspired by the blog "The Splendor Falls on Castle Walls". ( ) She is running a month writer's challenge called Quote Quest. This is the story I wrote for her first prompt. 

“So why would someone want to kill the prince? I mean, a prince of any kind? The prince isn’t king so if you befriend him you could get him to do what you want when he did become king. That way the kingdom wouldn’t be in chaos for the lack on a heir. Really that is better planning, for everyone.” 

“But what if the befriending process failed? Then what?”

“That won’t happen though. Who wouldn’t want to be my friend?”

“Well I think you could probably answer that question on your own, right? Considering the fact that this conversation is completely between you, yourself, and you”

“Yeah, that’s right, I don’t have any friends... I wonder why?”

“Let’s just think about that. You are known for hanging around the palace guards for no particular reason, you like to bite your nails when you think no one is watching, and you are a bit odd since you are the only full grown man in the kingdom who can’t grow a beard.” 

“Yeah, as usual, you are right.”

“Of course, I’m always right.”

“So I guess we get to abandon ‘operation befriend the prince.’”

“You got it.”

“How come you are such a wise person?”

“Probably you think that because I am you.” 


“Okay, so we aren’t going to befriend the prince and we already said killing him would only put the kingdom in chaos. What if we wait to see if the queen will have another child?”

“In that case we would have some time to come up with a better plan. Besides, we already determined yesterday that it is too early in our planning for simply killing the prince.” 


  1. Why does this happen to remind me of Gollum?

    1. Thank you! I had gotten an incredible unique idea that would have used a Bible verse and everything and I forgot to write it down… -_- So this is what I got!
