Chapter 9

“ Remigius remembered the magic formula…”

The following day, suddenly, Remigius shouted:


Everybody turned their head to the magician. Remigius continued:

“I’ve found the magic formula!”.

Rottbart said, keeping in laughter:

“ Oh, at last! I hope only that the magic formula isn’t wrong!”.

And Remigius replied:

“ Oh, m..., my Sir. Don’t doubt my magic abilities. I want to remind you that I’ve got the diploma from the best magician school …”.

But Rottbart interrupted him suddenly and shouted:

“ I’m not interested in your school-life! I want to know the magic formula now, because everybody want to go back home. Hurry up! There isn’t any time left!”.

Remigius said:

“ Well, my Sir. I will do everything.”

So the magician was going to pronounce the magic formula…but, suddenly, he shouted:

“ Oh, poor me! I’ve forgot that another time!”.

He wanted to cry, while Rottbart shouted:

“ But, I want to understand what there is in that head!”.

Fortunately, after some minutes, Remigius remembered the magic formula and straight away he said:


What a pity! Because the magic formula was right, but our magician didn’t mistake the words but their position and the position of the letters!!! As soon as Remigius pronounced the magic formula, a very big animal appeared …it looked like a dragon Rottbart was more angry than before and Tristam and Iseult were frightened. But Remigius was happy, because he remembered the magic formula for commanding the animal’s mind. Infact, suddenly, our magician said loudly:


and so he could control the will of this dragon. Tristam worried said:

“ Remigius, what have you done?”.

The magician replied:

“Don’t worry! I’ve only submitted the animal to my will…ihihih. In a very short time, everybody will be at home!”.

But the other three travelles weren’t happy as him…better they didn’t believe his words yet. Remigius, now, appeared strange to Rottbart, Tristam and Iseult. Infact, suddenly, our magician said:

“Are everybody ready to come back home? In some minutes we’ll stay in our London!”.

But the other continued to see him incredulous. They didn’t understand how he could change in this way. All of a sudden, Remigius said happily:

“ Well, let’s go! Now, everybody climb on this dragon…maybe I’ve remembered the magic formula to return in the past!”.

And he continued:


However the magic formula was wrong, suddenly a whirl appeared, very quickly our magician climbed on the dragon and commanded the animal to enter into the whirl. After some minutes, our protagonists were in their London, the XIII century London. Rottbart, Tristam and Iseult were very happy, but they still didn’t understand the behaviour of Remigius…they thought that was a mystery.
