He sits on his royal throne looking a little bit pale,he has been In that position for over four hours now.He’s not pale because he’s sick but because he’s very confuse at the moment,its getting to midnight already but sleeping is the last thing on his mind.The aura surrounding him smelt of danger,anger and confusion.His princes and princesses, even the queens have already came to ask him what happened and he told them There’s nothing wrong but deep inside of him he knew everything is wrong.
He rub his temple for what seems like the thousandth time,’a king is known to be wise when making decisions’ he thought..But he doubt if he’s clever enough to make the right decision and the right judgment in this case giving him headache.
“what do I do now?…The gods said not to kill the boy and he’s also confirmed to be a murderer + There’s a witness to it” he said to himself..
“what if he’s not the killer?” a voice answered him with a question he least expected but where’s the voice coming from,he didn’t know but he need to ask every questions on his mind before the voice go back to wherever it came from.
“who are you?” the king asked not shaken,why is he the king if he fears An unknown voice..
“I am you and you’re me” the voice said sternly..That’s when he realise they have thesame voice and the same way of speaking and that only means one thing,the other half of him(the wisest one of both) is the one answering him..sounds good!..”answer my question,what if he didn’t do it?” the other half asked again..
“Pls,help me out…What should I do?”.. The king said hoping get a solution from the other half…
“its just as easy..what you need to do is….”
The c--k has already crows but he’s still yet to wake,I don’t blame him,he slept late around 5:30am but he slept peacefully not when he was given a good solution to hIs predicament.He was having a peaceful sleep when he heard some distance noises,he wake up and lifted his body to a sitting position.He check the time and was surprised that the time is not on his side right now,its 9:45am and the town people will be arriving at the palace by 10am to hear his judgment on the murderer’s case…
He’s sitting gracefully on his royal throne smiling at his subjects which leave them wondering why he’s in a happy mood to give judgment to a murderer,they didn’t know he has other plan.After a while he suddenly change his expression to a frown making them wonder more.”is he possessed or something?” one of the subjects ask the person beside him..”maybe so” the person replied thoughtfully…
“bring the boy” the king commanded to no one in particular and his servants spring into action.Few minutes later a very handsome but very young boy of about 18yrs is brought to his presence..
“The boy look so innocent to be a murderer but you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover” he thought…
“what’s your name boy” the king asked calmly,,,
“Enenn” the boy answered with a shaken voice..
“do you kill her or not?” the king asked a little bit angry this time…
“my king am innocent…I didn’t kill her,we never have any misunderstanding” he replied crying profusely…
“where’s the witness?” the king asked no one in particular…
“am her my king” a chubby lady said moving forward..
“what’s your name?”
“Evelyn my king”
“are you sure you saw him killing her?”
“yes your highness”
“ok..” the king reply shifting on the throne,he’s ready to give his judgment…
“my judgment goes thus..for killing one of my people I sentence you to death by hanging,and you Evelyn are also sentence to death by thesame method for not raising an alarm when you saw what’s happening inorder to avoid him killing her.” he said with seriousness laden voice…
On hearing the judgement the people start murmuring and wondering why such judgement not knowing the king know what he’s doing.Evelyn is very terrified that she’s gonna face such cruel judgement,she regret ever collecting money inorder to testify against the boy,playing a fake witness just because of few amount of money,she didn’t know when tears started coming out of her eyes..
“am innocent…I don’t know anything about it” ennen cried out as the guards move towards him..
“he didn’t do it o….I was paid to testify against him o” Evelyn cried out on time before the guards get to her while the crowd open their mouth in shock..
“then who did?” the king asked eagerly…
“th…th…the prime minister” Evelyn cried while the king smile to himself..
“its gonna be a long day” he thought…
