Being a wealthy, well-connected man, I usually had no trouble getting any information I needed. But this was different.
I saw no reason to keep tabs on Orlando. I didn’t feel like talking to him… I mean, I had made him my nemesis. I didn’t know what was going on with him at all….
And, of course, what I didn’t know about Orlando would prove to be the thing that got me into trouble.
He had fallen in love,
With a girl named Rosalind,
After the wrestling match.
That, and the fact that my blabber-mouthed servant, Adam, had told Orlando about my plot to burn the stables he slept in, gave him reason to leave Usurpotopia. He hopped on a plane and went searching for sanctuary in the Forest of Nedra.
And he longed for the day when he would see his Rosalind again.
