A pretty pink and red flower crown was being held in Max’s hands, his face a tiny smile.
The prince was debating if he should wear it. It wasn’t very royal and it was getting old since he got it a long time ago. Though he would sometimes change out a few petals so it kept it’s beauty.
Nevertheless, he did not want to be the laughing stock of the kingdom. A flower crown would cause that being in his head.
Then again, since when did Max care what people thought about him? He smirked, putting his hair in a low ponytail and placing the delicate item on his head like it was the most precious thing ever.
It was though.
The boy turned to his full body mirror, frowning at the clothes David had told him to wear. Luckily, his pants had pockets so he stuffed his hands into them, giving a laid back posture as he walked through the hallway to the Ballroom.
The hallways were empty, no signs of guards on their posts or maids running around in dresses. Just… deserted.
It was kind of creepy, since when he walked down the hallways there was always a hot maid saying hello to him or a guard staring at him as he went pass.
A sudden wind blew into his face, making him out his hand in front of his face.
The windows is the corridor we’re wide open, letting cherry blossoms blow in from the royal garden. The blossoms found their way to Max, settling in his hair and on his clothes.
He groaned, dusting off basically nothing and trying to swipe out his hair.
Nothing worked. And the coronation was about to begin!
Max mumbled angrily under his breath, walking toward the ballroom. He heard his name being called and he walked in just in time.
He had the frown in his face, his hands still stuffed in his pockets and the flower crown sitting squarely on his head. Max was still covered in flowers, blowing one off his nose.
No one clapped because they were so surprised by his appearance. Not even David or the newly crowned Gwen who just stared.
He heard that one pair of hands clap and turned to see Nikki giggling and clapping unlike a princess with her brother Neil just facepalming at her side.
Max gave a tiny wave with a anxious smile while Nikki literally just waved from in front of the gathered crowd.
The man the was going to crown Max looked the boy up and down, making Max show the side of his mouth.
The man sweated a bit, giving an awkward smile. “And we now have Max, the Prince of Campbell. Has a nice ring to it. He even came…” He looked the boy up and down. “…extra dressed today…”
“Shut the fuck up and get this over with,” Max grumbled to the dude under his breath.
“AND WITHOUT FURTHER ADO!” The man grabbed a crown smaller than David’s from a pillow. “I WILL CROWN OUR NEW PRINCE!”
Max knelt like how David told him, only hearing the man hesitate.
“You… Uh… Need to take off the flower crown…”
“Manfred I will not take off the fucking crown,” Max replied loud enough for everyone to hear.
Manfred stared at the boy. “But you…”
Max jumped up and snatched the crown from Manfred and placed it on his head inside the crown. “There.”
Manfred shrugged. “And now Max’s first announcement as our new Prince!”
Manfred backed away from Max with a bow while handing him a mic.
Max took it and put it up to his lips. “Laugh at how I have petals all over me and I’ll fucking execute you.”
