Story Summary

Two of the King's guards pay a young man to show them the way to Aliforde the Woodcutter's hut. He reluctantly agrees, not sure if the King's men intend to harm the woodcutter. But when they arrive the humble woodcutter bests them both by sword revealing his true identity as the King's Personal Champion, self-exiled after what he considered a dishonorable killing of a rival. But the King has a new son, and he needs his trusted champion back to teach the young prince the way of the sword.
