Count Lackheart hated everything in Nomerovia. He couldn’t stand the rolling pastures green with clover, the sparkling waters laden with fish. The merry residents working in their gardens and plowing their fields were bad enough. But he hated Prince Gustav the most. The Prince’s happiness grated on his nerves like rusty gears. Their last meeting was almost more than the Count could bear.
“Good day Count. What a beautifully sunny day we are having. What brings you here to my fair Nomerovia?” asked the Prince.
Grimacing, he said, “I am tending to some business. And the weather is too bright. A few more clouds would suit me much better.”
“Count, you must stop being so gloomy. There is much to be cheerful about.”
