Part I: King for a Day


Narrator:The Prandial Palace, Yoming.
Apnon:Milord, the Deputy Elephant of the United Nations of Sol wishes to extend his congratulations to you on your coronation.
Jevee:That didn't take long.
Xinchub:I'll take it in here, Apnon. Leave us.
Xinchub:Jevee, have you made any progress in securing this room?
Jevee:Six bugs, three with full visual. . . Wave to the cameras, my Puppet King.
Xinchub:Nice. Are you trying to get us both assassinated?
Jevee:Of course not.
Jevee:I'd much prefer if they only killed you.
