That night the people of the keep had returned to their beds. Well most of them anyway. The chef was required to go help pick up the food deliveries for the next day. Outside, he greeted the delivery man, Gustav.
The day's vegetables had arrived on a horse drawn cart and were in the midst of being unloaded. The food included apples, carrots and potatoes.
The chef went over to check some barrels. At that moment, Friar Brown walked out of the small servant's entrance, obviously on his way back to the chapel.
Nothing at all seemed amiss...
...until a large Greek shield fell from above, narrowly missing the Friar.
He did not however notice, probably because he was a little to drunk to. As he was walking, he passed Daniel the Squire walking back towards the main castle.
Daniel was about to greet the chef as well when a Greek helmet fell on the chef's head, taking him by surprise.
Meanwhile, the Friar walked on, oblivious to what was happening behind.
Behind him, a Greek spear was thrown from one of the balconies...
...and hit him. Down he fell.
Gustav the driver turned and in horror saw that the Friar was lying on the ground bleeding. As he turned, one of the buckles on the horse's harness came lose.
The chef was still trying to get the Greek helmet off his head, while Daniel watched, amused.
At that moment the buckles on the horse broke, and the cart fell backwards, pouring its heavy load of potatoes all over Daniel, crushing him into the ground.
Gustav turned again and stood shocked at what he saw.
The harness had broken clean through, and it looked like it had been tampered with earlier.
Looking down, it was clear to see that Daniel had been killed.
Luckily, the spear intended to smite the Friar only pierced his leg. He was bleeding profusely, but it looked like he would live.
A foul curse was heard from up on the balcony.
When morning came, the rest of the castle got up and found out what had happened. Daniel was searched thoroughly, and it was discovered that he was a loyalist.
Lord Dragonator was once again not happy. Who was the killer? And would they strike again? Dragonator wants to know it all.
The people gathered in the Grand Hall to discuss what had happened that night.
