Naughty Prince

        “Have you completed the assignment, Your Majesty?” the tutor asked.
        The young prince smirked. He had enjoyed ten years of being totally irresponsible. No rules, no consequences and no homework.
        Sir William stroked his pointed beard. “If you don’t finish your Latin, the whipping boy will be summoned.”
        The prince laughed. “I’m not going to study the Latin, no matter how many times you whip the boy.”
        “Shall I bring up a girl?”
        “Oh, come now, Sir William. Even I’m not that big a scoundrel.”
        “I’ll be back in half an hour. I expect the assignment to be finished.”
