The boy gave the herald the most disrespectful stare as his crimes were listed. He rolled his eyes at each accusation. The whole ordeal was like one big show. I had never wanted to laugh so hard at such an inappropriate time. I liked him in a way. I guess I could say that I was glad, but it was as it the boy already knew the king of thieves wasn’t going to let him die.
