MESSENGER: Captain. There's been dire news. You are hereby summoned to the throne room immediately.

QUEEN: ... I was just waking from my late-morning nap, and there was this red flash of light... next thing I know, King Leon's been turned into a rabbit...

3
QUEEN: No one outside the castle must know of this. *No one.* We must think of something to explain his absence...

4
CAPTAIN OF THE GUARD: The King is supposed to go on a hunt today. We could say the hunt is taking longer than usual...

5
QUEEN: But dignitaries from Sevenshore are waiting for an audience outside! They will wait as long as it takes to see him!
CAPTAIN OF THE GUARD: We'll think of something...

6
SEVENSHORE DIGNITARY: I demand to see the King! What is this, a puppet kingdom?!
