Chapter 7 Chapter 7: “A Great Destiny”


“Where on Earth am I going to get a sword from now?” Whined Arthur. “I said home, but it’s getting dark, I don’t think I’ll make it!

Ohhh! Kay is going to kill me!

So, he dismounted and sat down under a tree with his horse by his side.

“Meow, meow, meowwwwwww….” Meowed Merlin. “What’s up buddy?”

“What? A cat that speaks?”


“Hey, don’t worry about that! That is your smallest problem! I can talk, and I can do many other things, or so I was told.”

“Yes, it’s true…well, you see… What’s your name?”

“Merlin, the greatest sorcerer of all times!” Evidently, Merlin was not a humble cat. “Well, what’s your problem?”

“Well, my brother Kay, Sir Kay is going to take part in the tournament in London, but he has forgotten his sword at home!”

“What kind of fool is this Sir Kay?” Chuckled Merlin. “The only thing he had to take was his sword, and forgot it? My goodness!”

“yes… and he blames me! Because I wanted to come, and he didn’t want me to come and now I should fetch the sword… and it’s getting dark… Ohhhh, what shall I do?” Whined Arthur.

“Aha… and by the way, What’s your name?”

“I’m Arthur”

Merlin’s eyes opened wide like two gold coins.

“Mmmm, Arthur, eh?” Muttered Merlin slitting his eyes. “And your father is…?

“Sir Ector”

“Aha…” said Merlin, disguising his interest. “Well, I could help you…”

“How so?”

“There is a sword, near here, in a churchyard, I can help you borrow it, and we can return it after the tournament, if you agree”

“Fantastic!” Sighed Arthur. “Let’s do it! Lead the way buddy!

So, cat and boy jumped onto the horseback and galloped at the speed of the wind towards the StPaul’s.
