The Contract

He sensed that the god’s offer to make him king for a thousand years was a trick, but it was his greed made him agree to the bargain.  He’d been given a fortnight to think it through.   He read the simple contract over and over and couldn’t find a flaw. Waiting till the last possible moment he signed the parchment.

  I, king Bergamond, agree to surrender control over my kingdom to my brother if found unfit to rule. In exchange for this promise I will stand watch over my kingdom for 1,000 years.

Semantics had always been his brother’s forte.
