Sorasak stood in his room,  looking at his reflection in the glass. The  muscles of his face were drawn tight.  King Narai couldn’t last much  longer,  he reasoned. General  Phetracha  was prepared  to take the throne,  and  Sorasak was next in line after the general-King Sorasak. He grinned  at his reflection.
