A bit later Tristam got up stunned, because he had fainted. He ran very quickly at the hut of an old oman. She was a wizard and was able to prepare magic filters. When Tristam entered into the hut she was very happy because she knew the boy. In fact the old woman was Tristam’s nurse. Tristam told her what had happened onhe day of his marriage. The woman, Zara, said: “ I’m sorry for that.I’ll help you, but Rottbarth was avery powerful knight and also Remigius. Tristan worried said

“ Can you help me, I beg you”.

The old woman said:

“ I am an old witch but I am not powerful”.

Tristam answered:

“ clump up ! We together can kill Rottbarth, I’m able to fight and you are able to prepare magic filters”

, she said:

“ Ok I’ll help you but I need three days to prepare the magic potion.

Tristam happy screamed

“ thank you very much, you’ll be rewarded”

she answered

“ No, I don’t want it I want to kill Rottbarth, because he killed my brother”.

“ I’m sorry” replied the boy”.

Meanwhile Rottbarth stayed in an enchanted cave with Frigius and the poor Iseult. She was scared and waited to be free and to kill the horrible knight.

Rottbarth went to the woman and said: “ when I kill Tristam I’ll marry you”,

she screamed: “ No, I prefer to kill”..

he said: “ You’ll see, you’ll see, I’ll kill Tristam and marry you”.

Iseult started to beg to be saved by God.

Meanwhile Tristam returned to his castle to sleep, because was very tired. During the night he thought to Iseult, : “

Where are you? My love, don’t worry I’ll save you very quickly, Rottbarth will die”.
