1. The Knight of Grim Tidings-Part One


"The Knight of Grim Tidings is a legend that has been spread over centuries since the year 1044 AD", Lord Charles Aitken said to the regal looking company he was hosting during the warm summer of 1435. He sipped his red wine, as he continued his tale. Davis, the black butler, served the food and drink on silvery plates. He watched the ten men hear about the legend with awe. "As I said, the Knight was banished from the Kingdom of Lost Souls in 1053; the circumstances of the banishment is subject to rumour. He had served under King Andrew and Queen Eleanor from 1044 to 1053. Some say that the Knight was evil. Whether or not it was true is up for debate. The other rumour was that he was a magical legend of the past who scared villagers at night. Father Randall Y. Parker, who lived and worked at the London Catholic Church in Essex, caused a scandal when he declared the Knight was cursed. And that he needed to be exorcised. There was no demon, nor ghost; there was just a medieval knight who terrorised everyone for a long time bringing grim tidings to those who met him at night time". Lord Charles Aitken drank most of his red wine, then stopped telling the tale.
