Foe Morning


Ovidiu Bufnila

In the nightfall, the armourer was visited by an old knight who ordered him a fire weapon, in great secret.

The armourer, who worked in full confidence, when getting the job done, slipped in the iron of the weapon a drop of his own blood, after a recipe from the Far East.

A few days later, the old knight arrived wrapped in a black mantle and he let one thousand golden coins drop on the table, this being the armourer's reward for his confidence.

At dawn, the old knight hidden behind a bush, shot his wife's lover while the latter was sneaking out of the park of the castle.

An apprentice of Leonardo da Vinci, completely troubled of the happening, would tell him the secret of his failure. Because, due to certain unknown powers, the moon attraction had swerved the bullet, thrusting it into the chest of the poor armourer who was sleeping in his small workshop.
