What Princes Do After School
The young prince and his friend the ranger stood in front of the iron gates.
“Where’s that Rakhshasa you told me about?”
“It’s roaming in the bone-gardens.”
“Where’s that? I won’t go anywhere else.”
“Hush, ranger. If I’m not back in an hour return to the king…”

The ranger heard a scream.
“They didn’t say how to reverse age in the stories.” The prince said as they both ran.
