A poisoned meal? His stomach rumbled with anxiety (and hunger).
Toast to my first addition to Protagonize.com! Not really much of an explanation to this one, except for the fact that I am presently very hungry and have been thinking of royal deception all day.
If I were to be fed poison in my meal, I'd hope it was a good feast. Nothing would be more disappointing than kicking the bucket after having eaten soggy cereal, or lumpy mashed potatoes sans gravy. That must be why I eat so lavishly all the time - can't afford to take the risk! :@
