"SUFFRAGETTE!" I looked around quickly. Nope. Nobody heard me. I wanted the throne but I was 'just a girl' and there were certain people in certain high places that thought that wasn't becoming a young lady.

The bishop was an ass.

Actually, the bishop was approaching *on* an ass. Perfect. With him out of the way nothing much would stop me. I sat in the branch over the path he was sure to follow, waiting for my chance. As he rode under the tree I dropped, garrote in my hands. I quickly looped the twine around his neck and tightened the handles.

He didn't last a minute.

As he slid to the ground off the ass I slipped the bloodied weapon under my skirts and made my way back to the Castle.

The throne would be mine. Now I just had to get rid of the old man King.

Absolutely wonderful. Funny, though. Every story that isn't mine that i've read to this prompt, has the princess murdering the bishop.
