The marriage of Mighty King has been fixed on next Sunday. The preparations are on. Mighty King surrounded by his entourage and other important dignitaries of the kingdom are discussing the nitti-gritties of the marriage in a closed door meeting. Redman, the stout minister, who is also a very good friend of Mighty King, asked, "You have a beautiful wife. Why do you want to marry again?" Mighty King: I am a king, and I can have many wives. I want this trophy wife at any cost. Almost all the marketing has been done. Only one item is left now. I have heard that she loves Namibian diamond jewellery. I will bring that tomorrow. Lionman is the court jester. The king loves him very much. That's why he can tell hard truths in front of the king which no one else can. He said, "But King, I have heard that the bride will elope with Kenneth today." Mighty King: What? What are you saying Lionman? Why should she do that when I can even bring the Moon for her? The beautiful queen was seated beside the king. She loves to laugh, even when the situation doesn't warrant so. That's her nature, and she can't control that. So, laughingly she said, "Think positive man, think positive. All is well. All is well." Mighty King: Oh Queen! Let me hear the news. Tell me Lionman why would she do so? Lionman: That's because she has no greed for wealth. She has only one weakness, and Kenneth is exploiting that. Mighty King: And what's that? Lionman: She is a bird lover. To be specific she loves only two kinds of birds: kookaburra and kiwi. Kenneth has a large stock of kiwis. That's why she will elope with Kenneth today. Redman: What? Those two kinds of ugly birds? What kind of choice does she have? Zipman is the army chief of the kingdom. Being a very important functionary, he was supposed to be in the meeting. When Mighty King called his name, he was no where to be found. Mighty King: Where is that idiot in this crucial time? Queen: Oh, I sent him to prepare some fresh tea for all of us. You know he prepares awesome tea! Mighty King: Oh Queen! Tum kab sudhrogi? Redman, call him immediately. Queen: Relax my King. Agitation is not good for health. It can even cause heart attack. Take a deep breath, and do 10 minutes of pranayam. Mighty King: Will you stop? Zipman: I have come King. Please take a sip and tell me how is the tea. Mighty King: Stop idiot! Kenneth is going to elope with the bride. Tell me what are going to do to stop him. Zipman: Sorry my king, I myself cannot do anything as I have to babysit the little princess in the afternoon. But don't worry I will send some battle-hardened, resolute Afghan lions to protect the bride. Redman: What? Afghanistan has lions? Really? Zipman: So what if they are not lions? They are faithful, and I am sure they will do the job for us. Queen: Think positive. All is well! All is well! At that moment the Mighty King lost his patience, and something very unpalatable happened. So the short drama ends here. NB: All the characters are fictitious and this is purely fictional.
