Prince Adam called out to the army assembled, row upon row in front of him.


They turned around.

“Good. Today you fight for me, your soon-to-be king! And as you die, remember that you died for your king. So, in summary: you kill them, maybe you die, but still… King this guy [Adam points his thumbs toward himself] right here! Now charge!”
