A brief but true account of how the late King Richard III returned to his earthly realm in ghostly form to reclaim his bones for proper burial.
“Here we go again,” said the Controller. “Of all our charges, you have to let Richard III escape. Again. Every time he goes back to Earth he causes trouble and with the recent news, the Directorate of Unruly Spirits should have been on high alert.”
“There was no reason at all to think that he would break out like this.”
“On the contrary, there was every reason to think so. The moment his bones were dug up, you should have known there was going to be trouble.”
“I explained the situation with regard to his bones to him, in a perfectly reasonable way.”
“He isn’t an easy subject to deal with.”
“He’s not a subject, he’s an anointed king.”
