Chapter 8 “ Rottbarth and Remigius arrived…”

Chapter 8

“ Rottbarth and Remigius arrived…”

The following day, Tristam and Iseult walked around the city, hoping to find the way back home. But they met Remigius and Rottbarth. Now, let’s step back to understand better how they arrived in London. While Remigius was preparing the magic potion to kill Tristam, his lord shouted:

“ Remigiuuus! Where are you? What are you doing? ”.

But Remigius didn’t hear him, infact Rottbarth, irritated, shouted more loudly again:

“ Remigiuuus! Where are you? What are you doing? ”.

Now Remigius listened to him and replied:

“ Oh, m..., my L…, Lo…, Lord! Oh my sir, my strong, big, magnificent, handsome sir. I’m in the laboratory and I’m preparing the magic potion for killing Tristam.”

…and, absent-mindedly, he put, in the potion, the mouse’s tales instead of the poisonous tongues of viper. In that moment Rottbarth arrived, came near his magician and looking at the potion, became suspicious, and said:

“ Remigius, why is the potion green instead of violet? ”

But his magician didn’t hear him, because he was pronouncing the magic formula


…and Rottbart with Remigius found themselves in 2009 London , on the Thames.

Now Tristam, Iseult, Rottbarth and Remigius were in London and they were trying the way to return to the past. Obviously our magician Remigius didn’t remember the magic formula. Then Rottbart shouted:

“ It’s impossible! You are a magician, or at least you should be a magician! You can’t forget the magic formula! Oh Remigius!”.

But Remigius didn’t hear him and it seemed that he thought of the magic formula. In the meantime all together walked around London, hoping to try the way to return to the castle or find someone who could help them. And they continued like this for three days and three nights, waiting that Remigius remembered the magic formula. On the fourth day, they were desperate...they didn’t know what to do. Iseult, very tired, said:

“ I want to go back y home…I miss my native land, my family…”and she nearly burst into tears.

Everybody wanted to go back, but everything depended on Remigius, who was still wrapped up in his thoughts. Rottbart was the most irritated and it seemed that smoke was going to come out from his ears. So another day passedby…..
