The king went about the castle checking each door and gate in turn.  All were closed, locked and guarded with double guard.  He knew the evil was close, but there was no enemy at the gates, no enemy scaling the walls.  His family and trusted aides followed him as he went about his rounds, and when he was convinced that the castle was well guarded and all within were safe, he turned to retire and the glint of the huge stinger flashed against the torchlight as the scorpion struck.
