Joel James Posted December 29, 2011 Report Share Posted December 29, 2011 "Oh gosh" says King Joel James collapsing onto a couch.His skin is brown, but it felt even browner considering all the crap that he had taken today. He thinks back to the events of today and reflects "My citizens may like me, but foreign powers obviously do not." He goes through all his possible options, and settles on the last, unlikable but logical, idea. He will pick a new king to replace him. He checked his staff of South Americans he hired to help run his kingdom. His eyes rested on the last man in line. He calls out "Steven Gonzales, will you please step forward?" The man was tall and looked as if he hadn't shaved his beard in two weeks. He had a hard look in his eyes, as if he was determined to crush all emotion so none would escape. He looked tough, but King Joel James knew he was a kind man. He saw him give his dinner to a homeless person last week even though he had not eaten since two nights before. A powerful and kind man, to run a powerful and kind country. Steven replied "What can I do for you sir?" Joel James, trying to meet his gaze said "I have chosen you to be my successor as the King of The Solar Kingdom. It is time to put South American power back into South American hands." Steven was shocked. It could be seen in his eyes, which was surprising since he could hide his emotions so well. He said "As you wish sir, but at least let us talk about the future of the country and the future of you" The two mean sat down and started talking together. After hours of negotiations, both men were exhausted, and need a meal. this is what they had managed to come up with: 1. The kingdom shall remain a kingdom and keep the name of The Solar Kingdom 2. All treaties and trade agreements shall stand, and cannot be cancelled for at least 6 months 3. The soldiers from Gallifrey will remain in the city of Santiago until the treaty becomes void or Gallifrey pulls out. 4. The former King Joel James and the Indians that came with him will be able to live on a bit of land in the southern part of the nation 5. The new King Steven Gonzales will take on the new name of King Simon Boilvar. When the two men had finished their meal, Steven Gonzales asked King Joel James "When does the transfer of power take place?" Joel James quietly takes of the crown, places it on Steven Gonzales's head, and quietly leaves the palace. King Simon Bolivar stares in disbelief where the former king had exited, but recovered quickly. He had no time to gape. He had a country to run.
