“Tristan what are you doing?” Ben watched his friend bag another raven.
“They say when the ravens leave the tower the monarchy will end. They’ve both been here centuries. Obviously they need a little help.”
“You’re rav’in mad mate. Why do you want the monarchy gone anyways?”
Tristan was silent as he netted his fourth raven. “I don’t but I’m a researcher and I’m going to prove or disprove this theory. Only three more and if the hypothesis is correct the monarchy will be over. I wonder how it’ll happen.”
“Lets hope it doesn’t. Imagine a President for life.”
