It's too early in the day for killing princes

"It's too early in the day for killing princes," she whined, rolling out of bed at the clanging of pots by her bedroom door. It was too much effort to wake up so early, don armor, grab a weapon….

Too much effort.

Especially when the sun was already just above the horizon. Noon was a proper time to rise.

"Git up and work!" the gruff voice of her mentor called.

"Yeah, yeah…. Coming," the girl sighed.

It would be another long day of training a ten-year-old how to hold a sword properly.
