When King GarGar returned from his latest campaign, the entire castle came out to greet him. First in line was Queen Pirouette who gave him a sweet kiss right on the lips. Next came the children, each of whom he gave a good fatherly hug. There were tears in the eyes of the courtiers who were only too eager to give him a bow or a curtsy. Then there was the homecoming feast where every imaginable delicacy was served on silver and gold plate.
King GarGar put his arm around his wife’s waist and gave her a hug. Having been on campaign for three months, he was especially delighted to see Queen Pirouette. Their two little daughters stood demurely with their nurses at a safe distance, watching the royal couple intently.
“How I’ve missed you,” said GarGar.
