The eldest royal son of Konats sat on the side of his bed staring into a mirror. Today was the day he was looking forward to most, but also dreading. The recent robot attacks on Konats had made it very clear that his parents, the king and queen were not immortal. If something like that were to happen again, or any other calamity were to strike, there was no guarantee that they would survive. That’s why now was the best time for Riis to take the throne. Konats needed a young strong leader, one who could defend and lead his people. Riis was never the strongest of his siblings, spending most of his time studying for this very day. His brother Typha was always the stronger child, providing the brawn to his brain.
“Your Highness, it’s almost time.” The prince snapped out of his daze, standing form his bed. “Thank you, I will be out in a moment.” The soon to be king carefully threw on his most regal attire. When the noble opened the door, a steward was stood there, a ceremonial sword in hand. Riis took the blade to examine it for a brief moment. It was longer and slimmer than his normal sword, used mostly for decoration but still viable in an emergency. Now he just had to hope no such situation would arise. Now fully dressed and armed in ceremonial garments, Riis met with his parents, giving them a solemn bow.
“Mother, Father.” He stood up with a small smile. “I’m not going to lie, my hands are actually shaking quite a bit.”
His father gave a knowing chuckle. “It’s one thing to read about it, a whole other beast to actually become king.” The two hugged briefly, only being pulled away by the steward from before telling them they had only a few seconds before the coronation ceremony.
“Alright then,” his mother started, “Your father will go first, then you, followed by me, then your brothers.” She quickly caught her eldest son by the hand. “Breathe Riis, this is supposed to be the fun part. Remember, your father and I are proud of you. So are your brothers.” Riis squeezed his mothers hand warmly before glancing at said brothers. He gave them all a shaky grin.
The two noblemen stepped out onto the balcony of the Konatsian castle, greeting a massive crowd of their people. The king called out to them, eliciting cheers from many and then began a speech. The eldest royalty was far too nervous to fully process it, something about time passing and the joys and hardships of royalty. The speech couldn’t have been more than a few minutes, though they felt more like seconds to Riis as he was already being prodded on the shoulder, prompting him to address the crowd. Many more gave cheers, though he could pick out a few uncertain murmurs. Prince Riis took a deep breath.
“Citizens of Konats! I stand before you in a time of uncertain peace. A robotic horde lays broken at our doorstep, yet not even I can say for certain that they will stay down for long. That is why I come to you as your prince, to rise to the throne and defend Konats and her people! For hundreds of years, we have remained independent and free. Under my rule, we will not only remain free, but we will overcome any obstacle that seeks to take that freedom away from us!”
