It so seemed that a certain King must appease kingmakers in the land if he must continue to rule the land. It had been the turn of his clan among the 3clans far flung among the kingdom and as is the tradition; he must relinquish the throne for the other Prince nested across the river.
This he knew as the honorable thing to do and was willing to do . But somehow, he felt pulled by a part of his past that he felt the gods had not meant he must reign for just a meager 4year term. You see, he came from a lineage that had never worn the crown before. His forbears never knew what a horse was much less own one. Forsooth, he never wore a pair of shoes all his growing days.
As the scripts of the gods, besmirched in foreign liquor will play out, he assumed the throne fortuitously and ill-ready: the Lord of a vassal state had committed an abomination in the land and was vacated out of office. He stepped in.
The gods from no where descended among men and sniffed one white powdery stuff and of all days decided to re-write the script of the land on their ill-advised visit. By the time the nation woke from a general slumber: the gods have the power to make even the sun sleep, our King had been made Supreme Lord of the Land.
The deepest stuporous sleep still wears out. Our brothers from across the land where the cows graze roused up from theirs and were going to burn the kingdom for they claim it was their turn to rule as the agreement written among men had declared. Blame the gods for the funny stuffs they have been sniffing lately and not the shoeless King.
Well, what is four years in the life of a kingdom reasoned the royal House that had reign over the land. ``This man is but the son of a fisherman, from their rivers flows the liquid that pays for our luxuries. Let him have a taste of the throne for a while. He is a frail man at heart, he will not betray us``. With this thinking JKing reigned un-peacefully for there existed a certain ilk of the Royal house which never wanted the frolicking fisherman’s son.
