Well, this story starts when Henry is on his way to Sassau, it’s 9 o’clock already, and for an inexplicable reason the smith always travels between Pribyslavitz and Sassau. In fact, he shouldn’t do that, since he is officially the Sassau’s Monastery Forge Smith after Zach left to Pribyslavitz. (Damm Smith! or should I say, Damm Bug! )
Henry stopped for a moment wondering what the blacksmith was doing in those woods at that time if he should be in his Forge.
Nevertheless, he continued his way because he could not waste his time thinking about banalities, he had an important mission to fulfill.
Suddenly, bandits and cumans were fighting till death in middle of the way. Henry saw the oportunity to get a good looting from these villains. He dismounted his horse and prepared his sword. But when he was preparing for the bloody combat, he realized that the blacksmith’s life was in danger against those well-armed bandits. The blacksmith was approaching them! Unarmed!
A single slash with a saber or an arrow landing on him would be enough to cause a bleeding that would kill him even if he fled for his life. He understood that he should not save only damsels in distress but any innocent life he could.
So Henry decided to knock him out while he took care of those bandits hordes by himself
When he woke up, he got up and kept walking. He did not even imagine that the massacre he was contemplating had happened for his sake. He just said: “Henry, I’m glad you come!”. Henry thought to himself: “Yes, you should!”
