Princess Elizabeth and knight's apprentice Maximus were in the reconnaissance of The "Magic Almighty Scroll", which is speculated to have knowledge to unlock all human magic potential.
"Clomp. Clomp. Clomp" was the mysterious indicative of heavy steps walking straight at them.
.... And out of the shadows, the guardian of the "Magic Almighty Scroll" appeared, threatening our two travelers to leave and never come back, if they wanted to live. Inconveniently, for the guardian of the scroll, Both the princess and the Knight's apprentice couldn't leave without the scroll, since they wanted to get ahold of it first before the evil magic wielder
Princess Elizabeth tried with the best of her ability to articulate their reason behind invading the Forest of Death, but the guardian didn't believe them. The guardian was willing to give them a chance though: One of them had to fight him, and who wins, gets ahold of the scroll. A life or death battle.
Princess Elizabeth gallantly accepts the challenge, while getting Maximus to let her do the fighting. This was her kingdom and she wasn't going to let someone die for something in charge of protecting. This was the most terrifying and silly thing she had ever done: She is a princess after all, not a fighter. But at the same time, it was the heroic and right thing to do.
She ended up with broken bones, bruises and blood covering her body; she barely had the energy to stand. It was worth it, though, she won, and got the scroll. The apprentice, looking back, had never felt more proud of someone; and the princess, never more proud of herself. And lastly, not only both f them, but the guardian was ascertain that Princess Elizabeth is the chosen one to save the kingdom.
