As he grew closer, he was able to make out the source of the light. It was a tiny forest sprite. She hovered above the ground, vibrating her wings, and seemed to be inspecting something on the ground. Those large footprints were present again, attracting her curiosity as well.
"You've seen the footprints too?" he asked her.
"Oh! Hello there elf. Yes, I have just come across these things. There's a strange creature in our midst that I do not know. I do grow concerned for the beings of the crooked forest, that this may threaten them."
"My name is Hérion. I've been looking for an antidote, as my cousin seems to have been paralyzed by one of the flowers in these woods."
"If he has been poisoned, there is a natural herb which grows here that should prove to be a suitable antidote. But if I provide it to you, I shall need you to do me a favor."
What does the sprite ask of Hérion? What quest must be pursue in order to save his cousin? And what created those footprints? The answers lie in “The Feckless King”.
