Jay B. R. Wokky Ch. 36.6 — Bad News for the King

“This was the last jar in all the kingdom,” said Queen Natalie. Old Cecil, the inventor of Miracle Mix, had disappeared. Whole shipments from the factory in town had vanished. No one knew the formula. “Connie has done all she can.”

“No, your Highness,” said his servant.
