“…and so, King Geoffrey, your kingdom was saved when I turned the vile Dubscheme to stone.”
From his velvet throne, King Geoffrey peered down on the portly man in a wizard’s robe. Dubscheme had uncharacteristically not attacked the city in days, this was true, but the kingdom’s “saviour” had been eyeing the king’s amulet since he was allowed entrance to the court, the stone head of Dubscheme looked hand sculpted, and the king’s every instinct said the sweaty man before him deserved the dungeon, not a reward. Fortunately, the king did not need to rely on instinct alone.
Geoffrey turned to his magistrate, who raised his goggles with a frown. “Not a word of truth,” the magistrate pronounced. “From his tales of valour to the name he gave us, this man has been lying actively and constantly.”
The unshaved con man went white. As the king’s guards closed in on him, he glowered at the magistrate. The courtesan showed the man no sympathy. He slid his Goggles of Discern Lies back over his eyes and watched him be dragged away cursing, the first honest words to come from his mouth.
