Chapter Twenty: Medals for Beamish and Buttons

In Chapter 20, the King wakes up to find that a lot of things have changed. Spittleworth is continuing to build the web of lies, and everyone seems to be falling for it.


"From an inner pocket, Spittleworth pulled out a most gorgeous gold medal, almost as large as a saucer. Embossed upon the medal was a monster with gleaming ruby eyes, which was being fought by a handsome, muscular man wearing a crown. The whole thing was suspended from a scarlet velvet ribbon."
