Fantasy Drabble #362 "The Return Of Muckle John"

His Majesty is still fat, I see. Perhaps he has been eating his enemies? I would have thought chasing them across the battlefields would have relieved the Royal frame of some of its burden. Perhaps His Majesty commands his Dukes to chase them in his stead, so that they may be brought to him to be devoured at the Royal leisure?

And how fares Her Majesty the Queen? Does she yet live? Has she been crushed in an attempt to produce a son and heir? She must live in as constant fear of a Royal collapse as the Throne itself.
