Drabble: A Royal Pain

A Royal Pain

You know you shouldn’t complain; others have it far worse. For you it’s an inconvenience; for a lot of others it’s ruined lives. It’s not a wonder people don’t trust you after all of that. Not that it’s fair; it hurts to get so little trust. And the people who do trust you aren’t worthy of your help.

Still, you have to keep up the work. You’ve got a lot of money on your hands; you want to share the wealth, and it’s certainly not giving itself away. It would just be much easier if you weren’t a Nigerian prince.
