Wart came across a clearing in the forest where he saw a knight that appeared to look like a ghost because there was so many scary things in the forest and because of his ghostly apearence.
"Excuse me? But can you tell me the way back to Sir Ector's castle?" said Wart as he stood under the gohstly knight on his horse. The kight lifted his visor. to reveal his frosty glasses, but otherwise he was no ghost. Only a lost king on a quest to kill a beast.
King Pellinor is the knights name. He has a female hound that hunts by sent to help find the beast but, she always runs the opposite direction of the king and if let loose she disappears for days at a time. She has wound herself around the tree and is stuck, but the lost king doesnt let her loose because her get lonley.
King Pellinor is depressed because he's been serching for the beast for 7 years and hasn't been able to get it, so the Wart tells Pellinor about the nice castle that Sir Ector would let him stay in if he helps Wart back. This cheers Pellinor up significantly.
Suddenly the Questing Beast with the head of a serpant, back part of the body a leppord, and front part of the body a lion emerged from the dark woods with an interupting sound from its belly.
King Pellinor untangled his hound from the tree and both of them galloped off into the woods chasing the beast. The Wart was once again alone in the woods.
