Keokuk,Iowa-As his first official act as Prom King Of Dominion High School,his royal highness, Daniel Rufus, has Declared war on rival Newcastle High. The declaration, which took everybody by surprise, was issued just moments after the Prom Court was introduced.
"To arms!", young King Daniel shouted to the crowd while waving a sword above his head and summoning his court to his side. He declared, "They may take our mascot,but they will never take...OUR FREEDOM!".
Michael Bullock, Prom King at Newcastle High School on the city's east side, had no choice but to fight back against the marauding Dominion forces which dominated the battle with their superior numbers.
King Michael eventual was able to repel the invaders but not before suffering huge losses at the hands of his enemy.
The embarrassing near defeat also caused the loss of his queen, Lady Sarah of 92nd Street Northwest, who steadfastly refused to accompany her king to the After-prom party at Pizza House, returning instead to her parent's castle with her maids-in-waiting where they partook of apple cider and chocolate cheesecake.
For now an uneasy peace pervades the city where warring factions fought just hours ago. Bitter feelings between the two rivals are almost certain to erupt in violence again, but for now the warring kings seem content to count their blessings and prepare for final exams.
