Let's Read: The Once and Future King (Ch.9)

Not much happens in this chapter, it seems to be a bridge between better and more interesting things. But, to get right into it.

Wart wakes up from his night as a merlin to an agitated Kay, who demands to know where Wart was since they both have a strict curfew; something which, evidently, was a thing in a castle with a limited number of things to do at night. 509 more words

Let's Read: The Once and Future King (Ch.2)

We pick up where the previous left off—with that ever so fascinating (re boring) scene involving the boys hunting; Kay becomes upset at the bird—Cully—perching himself in a tree, so he storms off, evidently because he has some serious issues with whiny, self-entitled boy disease. 1,274 more words
