Six Sentence Stories #35

Destiny can be a fickle, and complicated thing. My father used it, to usurp his brother from the throne without so much as a drop of blood. Now, I stand in the back of royal court, watching my older, sickly  brother take the throne.  He had the same education I received, but I had my doubts he recalled any of it. The fall had taken care of that. Should I seize my destiny, and take the throne from my brother?

    • I hadn’t considered that at all. Usually royal linage goes to the eldest son. Of course this is a minor exception, to that general rule. Maybe the brother is jealous, since he feels that the rule has been violated, and thus wants to take the throne as his birthright .
