*Dead silence surrounded the throne room*
"Now then,next on the menu, Personally I don't care what deals you have with pirates but I've gotten information that you bastards are the one who lead the pirates in harrassing the people on the island so Baron Chambers, count Aleem and Mr.Alex, you three are going to be hung upside down infront of the town square and are going to be stoned to death,take them away guards"commanded Lex
"Sire no please forgive us,we were wrong we will do anything,please!" begged Aleem
Worst was Alex, he already lost one of his limbs and now looks haggard and lost all hope
Baron chambers on the other hand had fainted so there wasn't much problem there.
After this scene all the people present even the high nobility begged for mercy,but Lex was not going to have any.
"Now you come to me for mercy well forget it...well I know most of you are not that involved and I do have a list so I'll let few of you go"said Lex
Hearing this most of them sighed and the others had a grave look in their eye
"Now then before I let go of the people in the list I know none of you are innocent so decide.Ears,Tongue , or the eyes" Lex smiled mischievously
The rest were frightened as they knew what this meant,either go blind or deaf or dumb and this was a dilemma for them.
Before they could speak something Lex decapitated Anderson ending his misery.
The men here now knew they couldn't escape death and so began, Lex cut up and made people blind, deaf and/or dumb.
"Maggots"Lex scoffed looking at the men lying and worming about on the floor.
"Now all the people in the list are free to go but wait a while it's time for dessert"Lex smirked
This sank all their hearts as they knew it wasn't over yet. The guards were also shaking seeing Lex's sight
"Count Varys stand up'' said Lex, the count had his tongue cut and couldn't talk and didn't have the strength to stand up so the guards picked him up.
"Count Varys you've been found guilty of tax evasion and harrassing citizens,Rap*, and countless other treasonous offences as the biggest culprit here you heareby removed of your noblity and titles and are sentenced to death by a thousand cuts.
You will be tied to a steak in the town square and I'll personally cut you up"laughed Lex demoniclly.
Varys knew it was done and started sobbing asking for mercy but Lex sent him away.Lex also told the guards to escort the most vile and worst men among them and they complied
In the hearts of the guards Lex had already made a deep place, Lex fought against the guilty and gave them justice,in their eyes Lex was a king who would always look after his subjects and all of them swore then and there that they'd never betray the prince and would gladly give their lives.
Ofcourse inside Lex's head he was thinking something entirely different,"Man what a drag,I wanted to kill all of them but, my old man is definitely watching me and I know he would allow me to kill all of them, 'necessary evil' as they say even if he's sick I'm definitely no match for him call it instinct but everytime I see him I feel like a pebble next to a mountain. *Sigh*
Well with this atleast the people will see the royalty favourably, and these guards as well, Idiots all of them, getting manipulated just by killing a few of them, I'm sure they see me as some Messiah to them but frankly I'm just doing this for the thrill, what do I care about the people''.
We arrived at the town square and all the citizens and pirates gathered and were astound to see the bureaucrats missing limbs and other features.
Then I made the three offenders tied upside down and payed the town criers announce what had happened inside the palace and showed them the guilty and also to tell the people their punishment,death by stonning and.
The angry in the eyes of the citizens were clear but none stepped forward to throw stones at them and thats when the pirates showed their true colours,they started hitting stones at them as soon as the punishment was passed and soon the citizens followed. The men were begging me to stop but it was to a not.
Finally after a long time they passed and the people rejoiced seeing them vanquish them
"Now then let's get to the main culprit",Lex said as he turned towards Count Varys and smiled.
Varys was tied to a steak and Lex took up a sharp dagger and started slicing a little bit of skin each time,"Hehe this is fun,that's right scream more you shi*,but don't pass out now you've I've only cut you 10 times",Lex started giggling creepily.
The people seeing this were frightened to death some passed out, even the pirates felt nauseated at this scene and everyone thought one thing,"The Psycho Prince" and held fear towards me
After the 200th cut the Count passed away,and Lex was visibly upset and his mood became sour so he ordered his men to decapitate the others and put their heads on spikes and display them on the ground so as to remind them to not mess with him or the royalty again.
Saying this Lex strode off to the palace to meet his father.
The people in the square burned this image into their minds and would later re tell this incident to other.
