"What?" Prince Thelmus stood abruptly. He understood what was going on; some faction wishes to get rid of his mother. They wanted to make sure that she does not get there to defend herself. Of all the people he wondered could have done this, his father; the king, never crossed his mind.

He must not appear before the court; it will seem suspicious, he thought. If this situation was unmanageable, it would not do him good to try and stop this proceeding. After all twenty years since his birth, his father was still to name him crown prince. He could not be rash. Still, his mother was his only supporter. He needed her in her position. This was also an attack aimed at him.

"Go and announce to the court that I have collapsed and am not breathing. Request for my royal father to come see me." he instructed her and she left in haste.

On the other side of the palace, Lady Raine stood. She was grandly dressed and sitting in the king's study, when a shadow suddenly appeared before her. She looked at her maid; Ria, garbed in black.

"My lady, the prince was informed by a maid about the proceedings. The prince instructed her to tell His Majesty that he is not breathing and His Majesty should visit." Ria said and her lady laughed.

"Brilliant." she said.

Official Orstu; sold military aid to Northern Lan without royal order....." Official Garret began to read the list. Those mentioned, paled.

"The evidence in your hand, do they support these claims, Minister of Justice?!" the king asked.

"Yes, Your Majesty." the old minister answer, wiping sweat off his brow. The entire court broke out in pleas.

"Mercy! Your Majesty, spare the young and old" some started to plead for their family's lives.

"Why is the queen not here? She must come and defend herself!" the king asked. He could already be seen shaking in anger.

"Your Majesty, I tried to invite the queen but was ordered away, I.. I..." a female maid stuttered while on her knees.
