King and Bard (3)

The following continues directly from Part 2. The Bard’s forehead itched. Again he reached up to satisfy the itch and again his finger met the ground up bark that the King had applied to the wound. This time it was cool to the touch. A change, but it was something the bard could classify as either … More King and Bard (3)
