The Gnome, Prince of the Earth

Traveling through the kingdom to reach the Enchanted Forest was treacherous and draining, and it took both knights two days to reach the place. That left only five days to find the Magic Clover. They had no time to waste. However, both knights decided to rest and begin their search the next morning.
The knights had traveled separately and did not meet in any of the stops they made to rest or to let their horses drink. Neither of them knew where the other was in the forest.
The forest was very dark. It was dark even during the day because the thick and huge tree canopy blocked the sun. The night was cold and silent. The inhabitants of the Enchanted Forest were aware of the presence of the two newcomers.
