Queen Toad Kisser

You’ve been offered the job of ruling a small kingdom on another planet. The only downside, other than moving to another planet and leaving almost everything and everyone behind, is that they expect you to marry the son of another ruler and keep him as your consort. That would be ok but the son looks like a giant toad and each time you meet him he drools all over you, tries to lick you with a huge and long and sticky tongue and just plain makes you shudder to be around him. Could you get over that (or kill him off?) and take your place as a power ruler? You’d never have to pay another bill, never want something you couldn’t have, etc. The pluses are stacking up pretty nicely and yet…
