“I’m asking you once again, would you take my place?”

She stared down at the old feeble man in front of her, tears started to flow down from her eyes.

“I can’t, I don’t know how to rule your people”

He tried to laugh but his throat betrayed him.

“Nonsense, you have all the qualities needed to take over. In fact, you are far better than me”

She bit her lip, making a thin line with her lips.

“But why me?”

He smiled.

“Why not you? You deserve to take my place, you deserve to be a king”

She blinked.

“King?”

“I have been ruling for more than fifty years already and I couldn’t give my last breath until I find a replacement. There is a cycle that we must follow in order for us to have peace in this world. That’s why I’m asking you, please take over”

He took her hand.

“Are you sure about this?”

“Why would I ask you in the first place?”

He managed to give a short chuckle and ended up coughing.

“Thank you and please rule well”

Those were the last words he said before he was able to release his last breath.

He doesn’t turn.

“Sorry miss, we’re closed”

He continues to wipe the wine glasses with his back turned away from her.

She laughs mockingly.

“Is this how you greet your old friend?”

Letting out a sigh he turned to her.

“Look for the las-“

She grins.

“Miss me?”

He drops the wine glass on the floor as it crashes into the wooden floor.

“You’re alive”
