Hunt your prey until they collapse. This is the one true way.
When you start on this quest you will be hungry and your opponents will be far. You’ll see them in the distance but they will seem untouchable. Don’t believe it.
They will get comfortable and they will rest, but you will keep running. So you will get closer.
The sun may set and leave you in the dark. The temperature might rise until your blood boils. Because your prey is fat from its spoils and conquests, you will get closer still.
By the time you are noticed, it will be too late. You will be on them.
It is in the nature of the king to get lazy and fat. He feels unstoppable and is guarded on all sides. But one day you will get close enough.
The chase will be long. You’ll have to evade sleep, capture, and the lullaby of comfort.
If you can do this, one day you too can be king.
Hopefully, by then, you’ll have learned to watch your back.
