“His Reward” / Memorable Fancies #2464

[“Xerxes…, given to all human voluptuousness, proposed rewards for those that should devise such as he had never heard of.” – Montaigne]

They came to the king one by one, each describing events more voluptuous than the one before.

But one by one they failed to excite him, arouse him.

So he had them beheaded, one by one.

That, he got off on.
