Since I've been hanging around for a while now, here's my 1st attempt at a puzzle. Enjoy!

Paul was eagerly waiting for the king. Only if the king was on his side, he would have a home to return to.

Paul -- human? King?

How old is Paul relevant? King?

"On his side" means "share his opinions"? Or more in a physical way, i. e. "on his side of the road"?

A home = a building with a walls, roof, doors, windows, where somebody is living? Does anybody live in "the home"? If so, does Paul know them? Did Paul ever live there? If so, did he leave it in order to see the king? Did he know that he may be not able to return home? If he wanted to return home earlier, would he be able to? (that means, when he left home everything was OK, but then something happened what made the return impossible without the king)

Paul played cards, he lost all of his money and bet in his house, he waited for the king (=card) but his opponent got the king. Something similar?

That's a SPOILER! The puzzle was obviously way too easy...
