Have you ever noticed how there's a prince of the Candy Kingdom, but no King or Queen?
I'm debating whether to give you a sneak peek from chapter four... eh, what the hey... ya'll read it anyway! ;D
WARNING!!! SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
“Well you know about his family right?” Fionna leaned back against the opposite arm of the couch, pulling her knees to her chest and wrapping her arms around them.
“I know he doesn’t have one…”
“Well it’s a little bit more complex than that. Back when Gumball was still just a kid, there was a horrible sickness in the Candy Kingdom, and it took both the King and Queen. They still consider PG’s survival to be miraculous.” She looked up, resting her chin on her knees as if settling in for a long story. “Anyway, with no one else but little PG to rule, the Countess of Lemongrab took over leadership of the kingdom and trained him in how to be a king.” Fionna pursed her lips at the name of the pseudo-royalty, showing obvious distaste for the countess. “But if you’ve ever met the Countess of Lemongrab you know she’s a sour, bitter lady.” Grimacing to try and get the idea of the lemon-headed woman out of her mind, Fionna shook her head and stuck out her tongue. “So Lemongrab schooled Gumball and ruled the Candy Kingdom until he turned 18 and could rule for himself. Because of how his parents died and how the countess raised him, PG always tended to take things super seriously, especially his duties to the kingdom.”
