“I wonder what he looks like.”
“I wonder what he’ll be wearing.”
“He’s a prince! He’ll be wearing a robe, of course.”
“And riding a white horse.”
“I’ve heard he’s filthy rich.”
“I just hope he’s generous.”
A commotion arose at the edge of the crowd. It was a beggar. How embarrassing, especially at such a long-awaited moment.
“They’re like parasites.”
The authorities rousted the man, easing the crowd, allowing everyone to prepare for the arrival of their most special guest.
