A Profitable Story

Disclaimer: this a long story. Read at your own risk.. I warned you Once upon a time there lived a king in a vast virtual land. The king has only a handful of men, they were brave, loyal and skilled because they can protect the whole land all by themselves. No one lived in the kingdom except for the King and his men. Day by day the king had grown lonely, seeing a vast empty land. Not even a bird was in sight. The silence was deafening. The king was saddened, asking himself why a land so rich can be this empty... Then one day, the king assembled his men and task them to go on an adventure to gather Intel on what other kingdoms are doing and also Find interesting things that could lure people to live in the kingdom and benefit from the land. 40 virtual days and nights have passed, the kings men have returned each and every one of them had something to report. The king was delighted to hear their reports and thought of a great idea. The king made a decree that whoever decides to reside in the kingdom will be given equal rights and be respected plus the king will share his wealth to every individual that abides by the guideline he made. The news was broadcast on the world wide web and little by little people came and built houses and other structures. The king made an announcement on the first day when people started coming. "To my beloved citizens, we all know that this is an era of self expression and social interactions, and because of this I would like you to feel free and just be ourselves. If a newcomer asks anything, regardless if it's kingdom related or not, just welcome them and show them your land." The king added something to the new era and that is showing people their value and self worth. The famous adventurer called Googel*, came one day and asked the citizens one by one..."What is the name of this wonderful kingdom?" Everyone answered the same thing... "Welcome! This is my lot." Googel then said to himself... "So this is mylot... I'll write about you and share you to the world..." ~ The End (for now) ~ *the spelling is intentional, but still read the same way

My working title was "how mylot came to be" but decided to scrap it to keep the readers guessing until the very end Do you think I can keep on going writing such stories or should I stop here and now?

@hexeduser22 Why stop when you're on a roll? Perhaps I should resuscitate my efforts in this vein:
With a hop, a skip and a jump, Kay Purse tripped lightly across the parking lot. With flowering courage, she decided to leave the gang she'd been planted in...
