Creative Short Story: Our lives as the four wives
I was always a loyal wife to my king and I made great contributions in maintaining his wealth and kingdom. I showed him love, kindness and was always praying for my king to always have mercy upon his people and to love and appreciate everyone. I always encouraged him to serve others as it will bring him everlasting joy and will help him grow spiritually. I was always there for my king in times of need and also in his times of victory.

When you die, I’m going to remarry. My king’s heart broke into pieces and he started wondering again. He wondered if his third wife was just around for the show. He wondered if she was there to just boost his ego and pride.
