Here is a story from The Finicky Cynic with my Veracity Challenge 😀
The king frowned.
“I am not sure what you mean, but by all means go ahead with your defense.”
“Will do.” The man bowed.
“These men do not deserve the death penalty. What had happened that night was not their fault. They cannot hear; they could not hear the screams of the people inside the tavern burned by the fire. These people were on their way to church, miles from the disaster. How could they have known? How could they have wished for forgiveness? How could they have pardoned their sins for something they did not hear? Acquit them, my Lord. Acquit them from their punishment.”
The king listened, stroking his beard. Then, he made his decision…
And now…my turn! 😀
“They shall not be forgiven,” the king scoffed. “For they had not attended my 30-second dance party!” The man looked around at the people who were about to be punished. “How could they miss my party?” the kind teared up. “Sorry, your highness, but we needed to go to the church” one among the convicted men cleared his throat, it was too shaky from what the king had just claimed.
“Your highness, we had to go to Church! For we are Christians. But also, we couldn’t hear the cries from the disaster!”
The kind sighed and stroked his beard. “What’s a church?”
“It’s like your mosque sir,” his advisor of loyalty (Mon’s note: Couldn’t say “loyal” 😥 ) said, “Where you go to pray but Christians go to the Church”.
“Oh, I see. English is not my first language,” the king sighed again.
“Oh, but Sir, you have grown your vocabulary by a lot!”
“Yes, a lot your highness!” one of the the almost-was-to-be-punished men said.
“Really? You people think so?”
“Indeed, you highness,” the loyalty (Mon’s note: Too late :P) advisor said as he curbed himself from patting the king’s head. The shininess radiating from all the skin of his king’s head.
“This calls for a 30-second dance party! Everyone let’s dance, where my Royalty-DJs at?”
And then everyone danced and no one was jailed or anything.
The end….. 😀
Yeah. Sorry this was a bit sucky 😛 (A bit Mon? Really?) I had to do this quickly and didn’t draft or anything 😮 LOL! No, I am not being modest xD I know, this is so…good? LOL! This is crappy xD I did my best (That’s a lie) and I have to go now *runs away for wasting your time*
