In the same kingdom a very handsome man, Rottbarth Karkaroff, lived.
He was a knight, a very skilful knight, but he was very cruel and he thought only of himself and… he sometimes was crazy. He loved secretly Iseult and he hated Tristam very much.
One day he was walking in his castle, when he heard Iseult’s voice. His heart started to beat very strong.
“What a fantastic melody!” he thought.
Then he decided to see where Iseult was. He followed her voice and he arrived near a room on the third floor. He wanted to spy on the princess and he opened the door a little, in silence. He had a glance in the room and…he was surprised, because Tristam and Iseult were together near the window. They were talking and the girl was smiling sweetly.
She was beautiful.
Her blond hair was moved by the wind and her perfume was spread in the air.
Tristam was touching her hair slowly…
“It’s unbearable!” Rottbarth shouted in his mind and he slammed the door and went away. Iseult and Tristam turned their heads to the door, but there was nobody, Iseult was scared, so Tristam said:
“Don’t worry! It might be the wind!”,
Iseult replied: “But…. If it were a ghost?”,
Tristam couldn’t keep back himself and he started to laugh:
“A ghost?”, he said,
“But ghosts are only imagination!”.
In the meantime Rottbarth was running to Remigius. Remigius Maleficus was a very…hmm.. very interesting magician or maybe, it is more correct to say that he believed to be a magician, but he wasn’t very able. Rottbarth went into the magician’s room, while Remigius was analysing a light yellow potion with incredulity and he was saying with a very low voice: “But…hmmm. It must be blue! So… what was I wrong about?”. Rottbarth saw the magician and he slammed the door with so much violence that Remigius slumped and he turned to the door very slowly,
while he asked: “Who…who… who are you?”.
“That’s me! Stupid!”the knight shouted.
“Oh my sir, my strong, big, magnificent, handsome sir. What can I do for you? I’m your humble servant and I’ll do whatever you want”
Remigius replied very fast.
Rottbarth, distructed by Remigius’ behaviour, said:
“I don’t know!... No… I forgot …Tristam…you must kill him now! Be quick!” .
Remigius replied “Ok, my sir. I’ll try to kill him. It isn’t a problem for me!”. “I’ll try…I’ll try…you said I’ll try…but what do you think? It isn’t a joke, this is the real human life and you,…you must be a good magician and I don’t want to listen “I can’t”, because if it happens, I’ll kill you with my hands! Shall I say more?”,
“No, my sir!” the magician said.
