I arrived at the court of King Arthur to beg for assistance in freeing my
mistress, I expected our kind and valiant King to help myself and my mistress,
and rescue her and the other princesses from those dreadful brothers; he gave
the responsibility to a new man at court, despite some resistance from his
knights. The man did not seem eager, but he obeyed his king. He is a very
peculiar man; how he squirms in his armor! As though he has never worn a set
While on our quest many strange things happened: he was not one for conversation, but
begged my help when his armor became too hot for him. He asked me to pour water
down his armor, which I did, but then was unable to help him back on his horse.
I could see the wheels in his mind turning, cursing the armor. The night was
long, but in the morning we happened upon some peasants, and if you can believe
it, he asked for some of their food!!! A man on a quest, asking lowly peasants
for assistance! I was aghast, and refused to join in their meal.
However, the most baffling moment of our quest came for me soon before we reached my
mistress. While we trekked along, I began to realize that the way he spoke was
like nothing I have ever heard before! The man used the phrase, “Where do they
hang out?” I was very confused. What does this mean? Is this a common phrase in
the foreign land from which he must be from? While I am grateful for the
assistance on the quest to save my mistress and the princesses, I feel that I am
very confused after the trip with this brave stranger.
