In the living room, King Frederic glared at his daughter Pistol Pete. He was angry at her because she gave her bully Ben Flaherty a bloody nose so that he ended up in bed looking up with tissues in his nose.
"You were not supposed to give Ben Flaherty a nosebleed." Frederic said.
"I don't care, Daddy. I did not start that fight. I had to get him back because he stole all my dolls and gave them to the merchant for bread." Pistol said.
"That doesn't matter, Pistol." Frederic said. Tod and Copper exchanged dark looks.
"I'm not in trouble, Daddy! Or am I?" Pistol asked.
"Yes you are, Pistol." Tod said.
"That's right! Like he said!" Copper said.
"You heard them! You were not supposed to give Ben Flaherty a nosebleed!" Frederic said. "And because of it, you will be punished! Go to your room! You will not go to the funfair with Alexander tomorrow!"
Pistol became very angry. She glared angrily at Frederic and told him, "You are as evil as The Ringmaster!!" She went upstairs to her bedroom crying and sobbing, where her real father, Pete, her real mother, Peg, her real brother, P.J. and her dog Chainsaw were waiting for her.
