Training a Prince

‘How long do I have to do this,’ Harold frowned from beneath his too-big helmet. ‘It’s been hours!’ ‘It’s been minutes,’ his instructor rolled her eyes. Shara wasn’t accustomed to training children, but when the King had specifically demanded it… ‘Blade up!’ she barked and Harold slowly lifted his dulled sword from the dirt. Too …
